8t. Petersburg ' Paper Takes
View of Far Kant War That
Is Prompted More by
Hope Than Conditions,
St. Petersburg. March 29. Fore
coat Inf the result of the war in the
fnr east, the Novosti declares there is
no more doubt as to who will be the
eventual victor than there was at the
commencement of the Graeco-TurklBh,
the Spanish-American or the Boer war
"For Japan the war la a life and death
struggle," continues the Novosti. "She
plocjs everything on one card. For
Russia it ia really a colonial war, and
event defeat would leave the empire
not greatly affected, while auccesa
would be sure to mean a great stimu

Manchuria, where It la reasonable to
suppose many soldiers will settle after
the struggle is over.

should not pay .oo high a price tor

WINTER MINING AT NOME
REPORTED TO BE GOOD
Advices Just received from Nome,
Alaska, are to the effect that there is
more activity 1n and .around Nome in
mining than ever before. The various
creeks are margined by many good
sized dumps, which are dally increas
ing. The Nome News says that the
early spring clean-ups will prove to be
the best in the history of Nome. Ma
chinery has been largely employed dur
Irg the winter season.
The Solomon river has been the,
scene of much winter work. Cabins
dot the river banks, each cabin being
a landmark of winter mining, with
promises of good results. Operations
on Peluk creek have been pushed vig
orously and the operators have report
ed that they will show better results
than they obtained last year. The In
stallation of plants will lessen the cost
preliminary to the work in 1903..
Miners on the Inamackuk are meet
ing with good success, according to
to reports. At the Big Hurram Mining
Company's plant on the Solomon
river 40 men have been steadily em
ployed throughout the winter In sink
ing and drifting on the mine prop
erty, wHh good results.
Assessment work on the Irish Hill
properties has been pushed, the am
ount not being limited to $100 to the
claim. Those who have property in
this locality have confidence in the
ground and say they will open it up to
the extent of their means.
A large amount of work has been
performed on Hastings creek. The op
erators think they have discovered
the old channel. A considerable am
ount of new ground has been opened
up. Old mining locations have been
taken possession of again and assess
ment work has followed.
An early snowfall was a great bene
fit to the people on Dexter and other
creeks. Many. who had, been unable
before the snow to run their thawers
or hoists started up under favorable
conditions. At the Sugar claim the
Pioneer Company sank a shaft 233 feet
deep and ran two levels. This was
the first time that this system was
brought into use In that locality. Two
distinct pay streaks were reported to
have been uncovered by the Pioneer
Company, and a pay streak was found
where the Bowery claim Joins the Su
On the Dry creek divide Duggan,

The Nome News reports that a large
number of men are engaged in active
operations. Mining men on Nikkala
Gulch reported that their ground is
"spotted," but they expect results in
the long run.

Blossoms That Bloom in North
Be 8een at World's Fair.
San Francisco, March 29. Mrs.
Mary E. Hart, lady manager for the
Alaskan exhibit at the St Louis ex
position, has returned from Puget
sound. She says arrangements have
been made to reproduce at St Louis a
scene Illustrative of the vegitatlon of
Alaska. To accomplish this the teach
ers of Alaskan schools will Instruct
their pupils to gather slips and bulbs.
and these will be so cared for that
they will bear transportation to St
Louis. It is expected that a very large
percentage of them will thrive and so
aid in the creation of a characteristic
B.ll uiuill. "
The Alaska building at St Louis
will be in the colonial style of archi
tecture. Flanking this building will
be Alaskan houses, exact reproduction
of those that are common in Alaska. A
choice collection of large and elabor
ately carved totem poles will serve
two purposes. One leading object is to
hove them attract attention to the
Alaskan exhibit which they are likely
to do In view of the fact that they
will be not far from a main entrance
to the exposition grounds, and their
height will make them loom up in full
view from the "Pike," which is the
Midway of the St Louis show. The
second object in having the totem
poles is to reproduce an Alaskan vista
as nearly as possible. Amid the totem
poles the bulbs gathered by the child
ren of Alaskan schools will be planted,
and with due care In the proper season
they will blossom gaily for the credit
of the land that is their habitat.
Mrs, Hart has been busily engaged
In Seattle and other northern cities
talking about the Alaskan exhibit and
In giving Information about Alaska.
She will remain in this city several
