Washington. August 6, From insido
sourcoH it was loarned that tho action
of the Nicaragua!! government in tak
ing possession of tho property of tho
Maritime Canal Company will have
not the slightest effect upon tho con
structor! of tho canal by tho United
States government. It is fully under
stood that when tho canal is actually
authorized by tho United States that
tho Ntcaraguan government will havo
to make terms with tho United States,
notwithstanding any concessions it
may havo granted to other parties.
Thoro is a possibility that provision
will bo made for concessions that havo
boon granted, in order to avoid any
possible dilllcultics. It is not bolievcd
hero that tho Cragln-Kyro Company has
any purpose in this concession other
than to socuro money from the United
States when tho canal is built. Author
ities ou tho canal havo nover believed
that tho concessions obtained by this
syndicate wero of any value.

MINES AND MINING
Con.ul MflCook Ky AInfc I.
tilled In lie n Wonderful
"Alaska is destined to bo a wonderfnl
mining country," says United States
Consul McCook, at Dawson, In a lettor
to the Htato department. The Tanana
district, ho says, is creating u stir and
is dividing honors with tho Kyoknk
conutry. In tho Tanana roglou tho
miners claim they can get 10 to SO
cents' worth of pay dirt to tho pan,
and this iu summer digging, with only
two or three feet to bedrock, is equiva
lent to $1 a pan where ono has to go
25 feet to bodrock.
"Tho great necessity now in Alaska,"
says Consul McCook, "is good roads,
good camps and the prospecting of com
paratively unknown sections."
Groat dissatisfaction was expressed
at Dawson City this spring after the
wash up, ho says, by minors who
woiked for meu who had leased mining
claims from the owners. Tho lay men
sign contracts to work so many feet of
tho claim during tho season, to rocoivo
SO per cent of tho gold coming out of
the claims, and the lessoo agreolng that
all meu working the propetry will bo
employed under a written contract by
which they promise not to hold tho
claim in any way liable for their wages.
it lias turned out lu liunorodH of cases
that tho cost of working the claims has
taken more than CO per cent of tho out
put, tho lessees' share. Thus the men
employed on tho claims have been de
prived of their wages. Lay men on
rich claims, says Consul McCook, can
do very well, but the majority of the
claims cannot be worked on this basis
at the current rate of wages.
L. C. Senkol, gold commissioner of
Yukon territory, has information that
Canada is to introduce radical reforms
in tho Klondike. Tho royalty system
is to be done away with altogether and
a government assay office is to be estab
lished at Dawson and a compulsory fee
of 3 por cent charged for assaying gold
and exchanging for drafts. Tlio 3 per

A ricli strike has just been mado by
Corliss & Rush, on Lucky Queen hill,
about 10 miles from Grant's Pass, Or.
It is on the Double Eagle claim, which
was purchased last year for a very low
fluiire. The stiiko is in the nature ol
a very rich seam, one to two inches

runs $10 to $15 to the pan.
Itovlewlnc the Gem Mine.
The Gem mine, near Sparta, Eastern
Oregon, now owned ,by Portland capb
tnlists who purohased the property sev'
eral months ao, has shown exceeding
ly rich ore, ucording to Manager K. J
Jenlrius. A depth of 4C0 feet has been
attained and levels are being run 450,
1)50 and 800 feet in depth. An npriso
from tho 450 to the 850-foot level is
beiug driven for air. A contract has
been let to sink a prospect shaft 800 feet
south of all previous workings. As
work progresses, large ore bodies are
boing exposed, and thero is oro enough
in sight for a 10-stamp mill for years
to come. Tho old Gem was worked 80
years ago by Captain Ainsworth and
Captain E. M. White, but was aban
doned by them. The wealth of the
mine was little known, as recent de
velopments show . The property now
bids fait to bo a great producer.

clearings are at the lowest for two

hand, gross railway earnings hold thole
percentage of gaiu previously shown,
and where prices are made low enough
to satisfy buyers, a hoavy business is
uncovored, and roadlly booked, point
