STAM PED ETQ ALASKA
CROWDS LEAVING SOUND
FOR TANANA RIVER.
The Biggest Rush Since the Days of
Nome Now On to the Land of
Golden Promise Miners Getting
Out $5 to the Pan.
Taconia. Wash. Feb 27 There is
In this city the biggest stampede to
the north since the days of Nome.
The next steamer to Skagwa will
carry a crowd of Tacomans as well
as men from other localities, all
bound for the new strike on' the Ta
nana. C. E. Taylor, connected with
the trasportation deparment of the
White Pass &. Yukon, left Tuesday
evening for Dawson, but with the in
tention of continuing on to Tanana.
Mr. Taylor's presence is not required
much before the opening of naviga
tion, but the glowing accounts of the
new strike were last week supple
mented by a communication from-.
John Scott, cashier of the White Pass
Company, at Dawson. Mr Scott is
known for a conservative man, and
opposed to the stampede excitement
which periodically sway those north
ern camps. Thus his information to
Mr. Taylor has resulted in the short
ening of Mr. Taylor's stay iu Tacoma
and a rush to the new diggings. Says
Mr. Scott in part:
Like the Klondike.
"I have examined into the truth of
the exciting rumors pouring back
into Dawson from the crowds who
have left there already, and at last
am forced to the opinion that this is
genuine in every particular, and gold
is being taken from the ground as it
was the first winter after the discov
ery of the Klondike. I doubt no long
er. Come in as quickly as you can
and go there in the interests of us 1
both. For my part I cannot get away

them to our little girl, who was troubl

A few doses checked the annoyance
and in a short time after a continua

Dawson, from which nil the streams
seem to get their gold. It is In the

the attorney, writes that while the
crowd this winter arrived late, there
will be enough gold washed out in the
spring to set the coast nfire again.

"He says: 'AH of Circle City is now
on the ground, and new arrivals are
pouring In. A town Is springing up at
the mouth of Pedro. Provisions are
selling high, and in many cases are
being paid for by gold taken from the
gravel in pans just as was the case
in Eldorado in 1S97. All the miners
who have holes down to bedrock have
gold to buy with and to gamble with.
Flour Is $50 s sack, and bacon dol
lar a pound Great excitement and
the greatest confidence thai the best
mines have been struck since Eldo
rado.' Tom Raney has written Dick
Lowe's agent here that many pans
show several dollars. Some of the
richer creeks are but four feet to bed
rock, and the miners are having dif
ficulty trying to work them in winter
open. Yet by panning in their cabins
at night they are able to pay .ill ex
penses." C. F. Collins registered at the Tour

party of six for the Tanana. Mr. Col

weeks ago coming out on business
of Importance, and is leaving with a
great buch of powers of attorney
from Tacoma citizens to be used in
staking claims. Said Mr. Collins
Powers of Attorney.
"Yes. I am taking in a party and
powers of attorney, though I did not
propose to advertise that fact at all.
I haven't much to say for publication.
The fact Is when I left there six
weeks ago there were not more than
100 men In all that section. We had
found what was proved to be a good
ground, and It was not proposed to
create any excitement until we had
got in with powers of attorney to
take up what we had discovered. No.
we did not consider this as "hogging"
it. Simply availing ourselves of the
fnilts of discovery, that's all. It is

his story got into the papers. It was
straight enough, but the miners of
Dawson got together and threatened
him with death unless he told the
truth. Marchisi told all he knew, and

Governor Chamberlain Vetoes Amend

Present Provisions Are Satisfac

Salem. Ore.. Feb. 27. Representn-I
tlve Olwell's bill for the amendment
of the pure food law was sent to the
bone yard today by Governor Cham
berlain. His disapproval of the meas
ure Is expressed In the following

stands, but already great complaint
has been made against the stringent
provisions of the proposed law. So
stringent is it that in the hands of

"It is well to protect consumers I,
against adulterated foods, but the'
law that we now have Is amply suffi
cient for this purpose, and I can see
no reason at present for the enact

the same time places a handicap upon
industries which are being rapidly
developed throughout the state.
"The establishment of a laboratory
is wholly unnecessary. This work
has been done by the agricultural col

Same Timber Land.
Roseburg. Or . Feb. 27 A few
months ago 27 Easterners arrived in
this city nnu located on timber claims
25 miles east of this city. After
building their cabins, etc., according
to law, they returned to their homos
and have since made the necessary
visits to their respective claims.
Saturday they again left this city
for their claims, and arriving there,
found that a party of people from
Brownsville. Or., had jumped moat of
their claims, taking possession and
breaking into their cabins. Word
was sent to the remainder of the
partv m this city, who armed them
selves and left Roseburg Sunday
morning with the intention of regain
ing their claims by force.
The people here do not expect any
serious trouble between the parties,
but It Is likelv that if Timber Cruis
er Thomas Strader Is found that both
parties will deal rather roughly with
hlra, as he is the cruiser who located
the last parties after having built
the cabins for the Easterners. He
asserts his services have never been
paid for. but all the Eastern parties
hold receipts for money paid for the
construction of their cabins.
