BITS OF HISTORY.
If fortunes are so readily obtaina
ble in the Northwest territory why
are so many men compelled to work
for wages? Why are Indians, who
are excellent miners and prospectors,
lugging freight for the white man
over the Chilcat? Will it be con
tended that the laborers of Alaska
and British Columbia are less liable
to find rich diggings than the tender
foot who sails on the Excelsior? Or
it be argued that the Indian
packers, who are charging other
tenderfeet fourteen cents a pound for
carrying their "year's supply" across
the ranges do not know the value of
money and cannot appreciate a good
thing when they find it?
Half a hundred "richest gold fields
in the world" have been discovered
since the first rush to California.
Cripple Creek was one of these; the
Black Hills was another; Reese river
and Pioche were rivals of the Corn
stock; Bodie was a region where
every tunnel was a cave of Al'adin
and every drift a cavern of Monte
Cristo; up to the Fraser river went a
shouting mob, every member of
-which imagined himself a Dives, and
elapsed since the discovery of gold
on this coast that there has not been
one or more stampedes to "the rich
est gold fields in the world." And
what has been the result? Listen to
the tales of the innumerable host of
the disappointed the same tale that
will be told when these sanguine
treasure hunters return from the
Clondyke the story of Fraser river ;
the record of Cariboo; the disheort
er.ing narrations of "survivors."
IT MUST BE MUTUAL.
There is no doubt but that Canada
intends to enforce the alien law, or
attempt to, not only to keep citizens
of the United States out of the Clon
dyke, but also out of all British Col
umbia and the Northwest territory.
This she has an undoubted right to
do. At the same time this country
has the right to retaliate and should
do so. Canadians in this country
have every right a citizen has, wjth
the exception of voting. No one
objects to this, but at the same time
this action must be met in a spirit of
fairness. The arrangement must not
be all one sided.
Of course this government would
not, perhaps could not, under the
treaties legislate against any particu
lar nation, but it can legislate against
all, and should Canada's action re
sult in the prevention of foreigners
acquiring or owning mines, or inter
ests therein, the loss of all the gold
in the Clondyke would be a trifle
compared to the mines that would in
a few years be saved to United
States citizens. Canada has received
much from the United States, and it
has received but, little from Canada.
The fairy tale, gotten up by one
Weare, manager or president of a
transportation company, about a plot
being laid by Chinese pirates to at
tack and rob a steamer laden with
gold coming from the Yukon, is the
latest picturesque advertisement of
the said transportation company.
News of the Clondyke is only a cou
ple of weeks old here', and has cer
tainly not yet reached the ignorant
hordes of China. Nor do those Chi
nese pirates know anything of the
Toutes by which the gold is sent out.
The whole story is fishy, and to the
minds of sensible people, whose intel
ligence has not gone summering np to
120 in the shade, would serve to throw
discredit on some of the stories.
While the Clondyke is undoubtedly
rich, it is alsb undoubtedly of limited
area and all located last year. The
steamship and transportation com
panies are making a big haul, and
they will make another bringing
what is left of the crowd back. That
vast sums will be taken from the
ground of Alaska no one will deny,
but it will be hundreds of years be
fore all of it is even found. Weare
evidently had it bad when a horde
of Chinese pirates got inside of his
After all there are some places
more dangerous than Alaska. Harry
Gauldier made a stake in the Clon
dyke, and to celebrate the event
went to New York City, being the
first of the newly rich to tackle the
sinful East. He very wisely put
most of bis money away and started
out with $200 in his pocket to see
what there was to see. In the law
less Clondyke he would have been
safe with all his money on him, but
in less than two hours after bis start
in the reform-ruled city of New
York he was beaten into insensibil
ity and robbed of his money. The
borean blasts of the Chilcat pass and
the swirling waters of White Horse
rapids are less dangerous to the hardy
miner than the foaming beer glass
and the human hyenas of civilization.
The coal mine operators seam dis
posed to make some concessions, but
they are of a nature that they should
have been conceded long ago, or
the things . complained of should
never have been established. One
of these is the doing away with the
company stores, and the other the
guaranteeing of honest weights. It
is monstrous that with the peon
wages paid tLe coal miners that the
operators should have still further
reduced the pittance paid them by
cheating them in weights. Whether
enough will be conceded to avoid
more serious trouble remains to be
seen, but the chances of there being
bloodshed before a settlement is
reached, are yet very good.
The fatal accident on Mt. Rainier
that cost Professor S. E. McCIure
his life Wednesday, should be a
warning to mountain climbers not to
attempt the climbing "of snow peaks
without a competent guide. Mc
CIure came to his death by losing
the trail, just as the Portland man
did a short time ago on Mt. Hood.
With a competent guide neither of
these accidents would have occurred.
