There was joy in the Hamilton house
hold Wednesday evening upon the re
ceipt of a long letter from George
Hamilton, dated at Dawson City. Sept
3n. It had been three months on the
Toad, but it carried the good news that
deorge Hamilton, J. A. rairclnuuh, 1)
J Collins and Mr. Hubbard had arrived
safely at the Yukon gold fields. When
the letter was written they were well
and hopeful over good prospects. They
readied Dawson t iiy on Sept. 2:ird,
havirg made the trip from the lakes in
l'.'dnys. On the l'7l,h they divide I up
their supplies, and all hands had a
plentiful supply of provisions, as they
had purchased some on the road. Col
lins met an old friend at Selkirk and
went into the sheep butchering bus
iness. Hamilton was associated with
( has. Shade in a lay on some mining
property on Hunker reek, 2M miles
from Dawson City, and wm jubilant
over the prospects. They were getting
ready for winter. The ietler is replete
wi h information about ilie route, and
many incidents of the trip. A rumor
lul l been afloat that the Hamilton party
were drowned in the lakes, and the fact
that no news had been received, from
them made it appear that th"re might
be a possibility of truth in the minor.
