ernment. Nicholas, on June 10, 1898, received
from France 80,000 gallons of the cor
dial known as "Chartreuse." Col
lector Bidwell assessed the duty on
this importation at $3.25 per gallon.
The Importer appealed to the board of
general appraisers, and they affirmed
the collector's action. Then the mat
ter was brought into the circuit court
and, when the hearing came up, coun
sel for Nicholas Insisted that under the
new treaty witn i ranee, maoe in

the tariff under which the appraise

have been only $1.75 per gallon.

Seattle, May 21. In point of num
ber of passengers and tons of freight
Seattle's Nome business eclipses the
memorable Klondike stampede of 1898.
Such scenes as were witnessed on the
water front for the entire week, are a
revelation even to those who were in
Seattle at the time of the Klondike
stampede. Then an occasional steamer
departed for the north; now the daily
sailings number from one to five.
The Post-Intelligencer reeently pub
lished what was believed to be a con
servative estimate of the number ot
people that would go north on Seattle's
various steamers. Transportation men
are now a unit in saying that the esti
mate waa too conservative; that at
least 8,000 more than was shown by
the Post-Intelligencer's figures will
join in the rush, for the reason that
many steamships have been engaged
for that run that were not scheduled at
the time the figures were compiled.
The boats are taxed to their utmost ca
pacity, and there are hundreds of peo
ple leaving daily who have only
The present aggregation of fortune
hunters is for the main part made uf
of miners, men practical and experi
enced in the affairs of gold digging.
They appear to know what they are go
ing north for.
Coloiado and Montana, both mining
states, have contributed a greater num
ber to the Nome movement than any
other two states. The state of Wash
ington, perhaps, is sending as many ai
either, and California ia not far behind.
The four states have contributed mors
Nome fortune seekers than all the rest
of the Union.
It is estimated that the Cripple
Creek mining district alono is furnish
ing fully 1,000 people. Leadville,
Denver, Butte, Anaconda and San Fran
cisco are each contributing large dele
gations. But Seattle is supplying
more than any one of the cities named.
Exodus From Portland.
Portland, May 21. This is the week
for the first sailings from Portland foi
Nome. Three immense cargoes ol
freight and passengers have attraoted
general attention. The steamers Eldet
and Nome City, also the big freight
boat Dispatch were the first to get
away, all loadod to their complete ca
pacity with freight and passengers.
Moat of the early birds for Nome went
with outfits large enough to provide fox
a year, but some were noticed that had
barely enough to last until the boats
Portland merchants report a good
business for Nome travelers for several
weeks, but sales have been heaviest
during the past ten days. The crowd
of passengers contained men of great
mining experience and men who could
not tell gold from corn meal. One
crowd of nearly 50 hardy miners from
Idaho had a portion of the Elder to.
The steamboat companies have con
fidence that everything will go well
with the boats during their first trip.
Ice and cold weather are oxpeoted, but
not to a disastrous or even annoying
degree. Tw6 round trips are planned
for the Elder and Nome City this
Not over 1,000 people left Portland
on the first trip of these steamers, but
iveral hundred went from here to
Tacoma and Seattle for sailing.
Tucomn'f Cape Nome Trafflo.
Tacoma, May 21. With the sailingi
booked for the first three days of tbii
week, 11 steamers have departed from
here to Nome, carrying more than 4,000
people and enormous quantities of pro
visions, machinery and live stock.
The Senator was the first boat to start,
last Saturday, with 500 people. She
waa followed Sunday by the Olympia,
Alliance and Lakme. Those three
boats had 1,000 mon aboard. The
whole city watched the vessels sail,
and there was great excitement along
the wharves for day and night, begin
ning long before the first steamer got
The first Nome fleet has all got away,
and the next sailings, which may be
the last this season, will likely oocui
in about 10 weeks.
BEAVER CREEK PLACERS.
Section of Idaho That May Take
Mew Life Before Long.
Delta, Idaho, May 21. Plaoer min
ing along Beaver creek, in Shoshone
county, is being talked of again. Sev
eral miles of the creek remain unpios-
pected. Water has prevented reaching
bed rook at about 15 feet. . High ban
along the oreek yield some gold, also
the gulches. Trail gulch, above Delta,
has produced over half a million in
placer gold. After being worked a
years, the old Myrtle claim still pays
well. There are many plaoers that
would yield several dollars a day, but
some would yield much less. A. J.
Prichard, who discovered the camp,
talks of organizing a company to oper
- ate a large placer mining camp piaut
along the creek.
