Dawson, Y. T., August 18. The
Klondike output of cold during the
yeai 1900 will reach 125,000,000.
Improved methods of mining, resulting
from the introduction of suitable nm
chinery, together with a better knowl
edge of conditions here, etc., cheapen
ing the cot of production, and ground
that was formerly unprofitable in now
paying. Wages are fairly good, $5 per
day and board being the ruling pay,
iind, while there are many idle men
complaining of dull time, one who
rcaiy wants work can get it.
The action of the Canadian govern
nient in prohibiting relocations on all
the creeks and closing Bonanza and El
dorado to location, is driving out the
prospector and email miner, and re
turd developmment to that extent
Capital is coming in,-however, and
groups and blocks of claims are being
bougut up for large workings. It is
the old story of tho individual miner
giving way to the syndicates, an
hunting new prospects. Hundreds r
these during the lant spring have left
the Klondike and gone to American
territory, where, it is claimed, the poor
matt has a better chance than here
Nome has taken the minority, but

The Forty-Mile and Hirch Creek dig'

deserted in the rusu to Dawson in 1897
and later in the Nome stampede last
fall, are again coming into favor, 'or it
las never been disputed that there is
much good ground there that will pay
wages and more.
The latest candidate for popnlar fa
vor is the Tanann district. Hermits
from there are generally good. The
gronnd is three to seven feet deep only,
overlaying a slate anil purphry bed
rock, and there is plenty of water for
sluicing, all of which makes it an ideal
counrty for summer working. It is
said to be easily approached from the
Tanima river. One to four ounces per
day is said to be the usual amount per
man, shoveling into the sluices.
Tho recent action of the United
States government in surveying a rail
road and telegraph route from Valde
to Eagle City, and its promptness in
pushing through a trail with stations,
etc., along the line, is attracting much
attention here. The further fact that
the various civil officers for the eastern
division of Alaska, embracing the Koy
ukuk, Tanann and Yukon water-sheds
are now duly installed at Euglo City,
gives great satisfaction. It is a long
step in the right direction, and. great
developments may be expected in Alas

Country It, Artlvcly Treparlug for the
R. G. Dun & Co.'i weekly review of
trade says: After a great wave of ad
vancing prices, optimism as tobuBiness
is generally dangeious. Eut the top
was reached the middle oi March, since
which time reaction has tome to every
great industry, so that consumers are
asking whether in some riiiections the
decline may have not been reasonably
large as was the advance, and whether
buying on the present basis of prices is
not fairly suro. There are fresh evi
dences of weakness in raw materials,
notably the break in structural iron,
but each one is availed of to place
heavy contracts. New York is wel
coming buyers from all over the couu- (
try in larger numbers than for many
years at this season, in dry good e, gro
ceries, in jewelry and in hardware,
and if contracts are not placed to as
large a volume as expected, it is be
cause of the conservatism of those who
think they may compel gome further
shading of prices. Reports this week
from other Important points of distri-.
bution show the same eagerness to boy 1
when the time seems right. It is be
coming more apparent that the bottom
has been reached in prices of iion and
steel. The decline was severe and re
covery must be slow, but gradual ad
vance and moderately increasing activ
ity are more healthy than violent
changes. In no singlo division is the
improvement more striking than in any
other. Except steel rails, all forms of
iron from the ore to the finished pro
duct are being sought more eagerly and
with less effort to secure further con
cessions in prices, but when tho secre
tary of agriculture was reported as pre
dicting "dollar wheat" before the end
of the year, the market showed an in
clination to disagree, and the Septem
ber option fell below 80 cents for tin
first time in two months.

The play of "Robinson Crusoe" Is
now given in one of the Paris theaters
with four animals in the cast of actors.
These are a goat, a monkey, a paroquet,
and chief of nil, a dog who enacts the
part of Robinson's faithful companion,
"Toby." The dog's real name Is Faro,
and a writer in La Nature says he will
respond to that name only when in the
street or at his master's home, but on
the stage he answers promptly the call,
"Toby." When Robinson shoots a bird,
"Toby" runs and picks It up, climbs up
a ladder Into Robinson's hut, and gives
the bird to "Friday," who acts as cook.

three-quarters of the sardines sold hero
are put up In fifty-one packing-houses
In Maine. These concerns are con
trolled by a trust company, which em
ploys 0,000 workmen, who can turn out
1,500,000 cases of the fish annually.
"In Maine sardines are caught off the
western shores of the St. Croix River
and Passamaquoddy Bay. The fishing
season commences early in May and

The fish are taken In brush weirs, re

which they are led by means of large
leaders and wings, which terminate In
a funnel-shaped entrance. Their escape
Is prevented by the extension of these
wings luto the Inclosure, thereby form
ing a triangular hook at each eud of it,
so that the fish, as they circle inside the
weir, are directed past the entrance.
When the flsli are plentiful in the nets
quantities of scales appear upon the
surface of the water. The nets are then
lifted and their coutents are dumped
by the fishermen luto their boats. The
fish make a little squeak when taken
from the water and die almost Instant
ly. An ordinary catch of sardines gives
to each boat anywhere from 2,000 to
0,000 Ash, the price of which Is from $2
to ?2.50 per 1,000, according to the
quantity of fish that are being caught

wholesale dealer in such cauued goods

"Last year the consumption of sardines
in the United States amounted to
2,000,000 cases, or 200.000,000 cans. Of
this quautity 1,400,000 cases were the
