Perhaps the best editorial com
ment that can be made on the Klon
dike is contained m the following
dispatch from Victoria, under date
of the 25th :
More good news has come from
tee Klondike by the steamer City of
Topeka, which arrived tonight, leav
ing Juneau just after the arrival
there of Joe Birch, James McKay
and Archie Shelp, who made the trip
from Dawson City to Dyea in twenty
days. They did not come any fur
ther than Juneau, but intend to go
back to the mines. They had a
pretty rough trip, having to paddle
and tow their boat up rivers.
In conversation with one of the
passengers who came down on the
Topeka, Shelp spoke very highly of
the Stewart and Indian river dis
tricts, although there has been no
sensational finds. From $10 to $15
per pan is being taken out ot these
, Close upon $2,000,000 in dust has
gone down the river steamers, the
owners intending to take the steamer
Portland at St. Michaels.
Gold passed at $17 an ounce at
Shelp gives the following list of
Juneau men who struck it rich :
Dick Law, $100,000; J. Smith, $50,-
000; Joe Brant, $30,000; Cornelius
Edwards, $25,000 ; Whipple, $10,000,
Henry Ash, who left on the last
boat for San Francisco, $100,000.
An old man, who a few months ago
was cutting wood around Juneau,
$60,000. Oscar Ashby and W. Leak
refused $150,000 for their claims.
About a dozen men who went
Borth within the last few weeks, in
tending to go to the mines, came
back on the Topeka, and they say
many will follow them.
Two surveyors have been sent out
to try and find a better route for the
Skaguay trail, and if they . succeed,
the men have promised to go to work
Among those who threw up the
sponge and came back to civilization
were Sam Brown of Seattle and Will
iam Albert. Mr. Niles, an attorney
of Los Angeles, also came back, but
he is going to make another trial,
this time by the Stickeen river route.
Chief Factor Hall, of the Hudson's
Bay Company, who also came down
on the boat, having been to Cassiar,
xeports the route a splendid one.
A GOOD POINTER.
The Klondike is apt to have an
anti climax. Instead of closing the
season with a brass band and whole
lots of hilarity, it looks now as
though the curtain would be rung
down on as mild a mining boom as
even the far-off Arctic circle could
engender. The schooner Colman
has returned from St. Michaels, near,
or really at the mouth of the Yukon,
bringing just four Klondikers, and
these four and those wailing at St.
Michaels to come down on the Poit
land had from 5,000 to 15,000 each.
There were twelve men at St.
Michaels waiting for the Portland,
and another 6teamer was expected
from Dawson City. The men com
ing out say that no clean-ups have
been made this summer. Hence it
is impossible to say what the produc
tion is, but it certainly does not
prove exciting to see men coming
out satisfied with $5,000 when it
takes $1,000 and a year's hardship
and work to get it. The steamers
have been on too long, and if the
wild boom was to be continued com
munication should have been shut off
a month ago.
We size it up that there are good
placers in Alaska, but that the stories
have been grossly exaggerated in the
interest of the transportation com
panies. There are millions in Alaska,
but those millions have been there
for thousands of years, and are not
going to get away this winter. Those
who want to go to Alaska to tackle
the gold mines can go next spring,
or ten years from next spring, and
then find plenty of ground that has
never been prospected.
The craze is being fostered -by the
transportation companies, and those
who bite at their bait are simply
suckers. The millions the Portland
was to bring down have not yet ma
terialized, and it-is extremely doubt
ful whether they will.
The St. Louis Star says: "The
spectacle of a lot of men being ex
amined as to their ability to sweep
out a school building is one of the
things that makes all ciyil service
ideas appear ridiculous." This is no
more ridiculous than a civil service
commission in a city in this 4tate re
quiring laboring men to pass an ex
amination as to their ability to labor.
If there is good in civil service,
there is also much humbug, and is
open to many objections.
Catarrh Cannot be Cured
with local applications, as they cannot
reach the seat of the dieease. Catarrh
is a blood or constitutional dieease, and
in order to cnre it you must take inter
nal remedies. Hall's Catarrh Cnre is
taken internally, and acts directly on
the blood and mucous surfaces. Hall's
Catarrh Cure is not a quack medicine.
It waa was prescribed by one of the beet
physicians in this country for years, and
is a regular prescription. It is composed
of the best tonics known, combined with
the best blood purifiers, acting directly
on the macous surfaces. The perfect
combination of the two ingredients is
what produces such wonderful resnlts in
curing Catarrh. Send for testimonials,
