Another bill which the committee has

selects the successor to General Crook
according to seniority, Miles will

Special to The Astokian.
Tacoma, March 21. There is great
excitement here over the discover- of
gold in Gallagher's gulch, at the south
end of the city. Color was struck by
an unknown man several days since.
Ho had hardly sunk his first shaft,
however, when a second man came
.along, staked a claim and went to
worK. Several others followed suit,
and now several shafts havo been
sunlc ana a constantly increasing
force of expectant prospectors are
working early and late, going deeper
and still deeper in search of bed rock.
It is more than possible that within a
few days Gallagher's Gulch willbe
lined its entire length with excited gold
seekers. The matter wa3 kept quiet
and Mr. Berthnme, state geolo
gist was hurriedly engaged to
examine into and report his
opinion of the alleged discovery.
As a result he appeared before
tho comissioners and submitted a re
port, in which he savs he has found
gold, but does not think it in sufficient
quantities to justify calling the land
mining property. Shafts, however,
have not been sunk deep enough
to show the bed rock and
the value of the discovery
is by no means determined. Pros
pectors, however, are sanguine of suc
cess, having already panned color and
being confident that gold exists in pay
ing quantities deeper down. The
land filed upon is most valuable and
is estimated to be worth S30,000.
