Mr. Wright believe that before tho end
of tho summer, thoro will bo 00,000
person in Capo Nome.
"Wo want tho general land laws ex
tended to Alaska, so that wo havo
homestead rights," said Mr. Wright
last night, "otherwiso wo cannot holp
having a great deal of trouble. Wo
are without tho legal form of govern

it ha no standing in law. Thero were
2,000 men thero last year, and they

"In law, nobody hu any right to the
beach, between tho high nud low woter

gold. It ought to lio laid off in small

Though gold wa discovered in Cape
Nome a yenr ago last Septernbor, wo

it was a Hchcmc of tho steamship com

Ou tho Yukon the-gold is woll below
the surface, hut at Nome it lies near
tho top of the ground. Many claims
have been staked out, but thero is a
vast region still to bo explored. The
formation is very peculiar. Back of
tho beach, which is white sand, and
rising 10 feet abovo it, is a Hat strip
called tundras, which extends from
two to four miles hack to the moun
tains. This has a layer of moss or peat
ou top, then comes n layer of blue clay
from 0 to 15 iuches thick, aud then the
white Band to bedrock 25 feet below.
Tho gold in tho white sand runs from
50 cents to $1.50 a pan, and tho pay
streak of ruby sand ou the bedrock runs
$5 to the pan, besides coarse gold.
"Ono of the steamers took 350 tons
of sand shoveled at random from thu
beach to San Francisco last year. It
was put into a smelter aud yielded
$U,000 in gold. Tho beach has been
prospected for 15 miles. Noliody
knows whero tho gold camo from.
Somo think it was from hills brought
down by glaciers, and somo think it
was thrown up by a volcano.

A bill has been framed hy Senator

which wits adopted for Alaska at tho
last session of congress. In this bill,
Senator Perkins prohibits tho construc
tion of barricade in stream for tho

a spawning grounds, when he may'
consider that fishing operations on such
streams are being conducted so that
tho number of salmon taken is larger

duce, or if tho fishing operation pre
vent a sufficient ingress of salmon to
the spawning grounds, ho may estab
lish weekly closed seasons, to limit the
duration of tho fishing season, pro
scribe tho volume of the catch at such
places, or prohibit it entirely; provided
this action is taken after tho persons
interested havo been given a fair hear
ing in their own liehalf.
The secretary of tho treasury is also
authorized to require the erection of
salmon hatcheries of suitable capacity
at any fisheries or fish establishments
in Alaska, which are to bo maintained
