William Ogllvle, ex-Govern'r of Yukon

that region, is in Portland for a few
days vlalting; his friend. Dr. E. O.
Smith. Ex-Governor Ogilvle is a pio
neer of the Yukon country, having- been
sent there In 1887 by the Canadian gov
ernment to determine the boundary line
between Canada and Alaska. He made
a aecond trip in 1895. In connection with
the boundary queatlon, and also en
gaged In mining, which was then being
carried on on a small scale. While he
waa thus engaged . the Klondike dis

"When I returned home In 1901," said
ex-Governor Ogilvie yesterday, "the
Canadian government voted me a bonus
of J5000, on account of my work, and I
was chosen as Commissioner, or Gov
ernor, of the new Territory of Yukon.
That office I held for two years and a
half, returning: home In 1902.
"The output from the mines in Alaska
and Ynkon will be enormously in
creased by reason of the Introduction
of Improved machinery. The dredge Is
coming more and more into use, the
conditions in that country making It
possible to use It over a very large
area. A dredge handles hundreds of
yards of earth, where only one was
handled by the old methods, enabling
ground to be worked at good profit that
would have entailed heavy loss if
worked under former conditions. Al
ready, in the vicinity of Dawson, there
are eight or ten dredges at work on
ground that had been exhausted by the
older processes. The Guggenheime have
purchased a large number of the Klon
dike holdings, and are taking as much
from-them 'by dredging as the original
owners did by sluicing."
