SAM SAMSON'S MINE STILL PAYING

RUIu-r-TclU A hunt Alaska.
It isn't every one that oau go away
fur a two week'i visit aud come back
to find a lettei awaiting them telling
that they have made t.10,000 while they
hare been gone. This however, is
bat Sam Samson did. As has been
stated before iu connection with three
partners he owns a mine near Nome,
Alaska, and while be has been away
they have takeu out over 100,000 iu
gold from the mine a and the letter
Samsou received told him all about
So far K250.000 has been taken from
the Cyrus Noble miue which is the
uauie of the placer deposit of yellow
metal owned by Saiusou and his part
ners. Oue huudred aud seventy-five
thousand dollars ot this uas beeu
sluiced out and 80,000 more is ready
tor that operation.
Samson was at one time a resident
ot Hood River and is well acquainted
here, where lie has many friends. He
at oue time rau a shing)e mill at
Cbenowltb aud is something of a me
chanical genius, having tiled several
patents that had I hey arrived a few
bouts sooner at the patent ottice iu
Washington would have made him
ealthy. It was through these it is
laid that he lost most of his nioiuy
ud was forced to seek a new Held lo
recoup bimselt, blx years agobe went
to the gold Holds of Alaska aud com
menced prospecting and working ne, r
For several y-nrs while be made a
living he was unable to Uud anything
it'll until hift January wheu the Cy
rus iNoule commenced to snow signs
of a line prospect aud later developed
into a most fortunate strike for hiui
ielf and paituers.
Samsou has just returped Horn a
tour of the eastern states and is at
preseut stopping at the Mount Hood
hotel, but will shortly start for Nome.
In talking about his mine and other
phases of life in Alaska the other day
he said :
Our miue is located about two
and one half miles from Nome aud
we have about 5 men employed. La-
or iu Alasaa is not as high as some
suppose although expensive enough.
We pay our meu fo a day and board
ud they work teu hours. This is tho
general price. There are labor unions
lu Alaska as elsewhere nut so lar inoy
have not caused any trouble. Proba
bly this is due to the fact that there
are so many out of work there. It is a
mystery bow tboy manage to eixst in
such au expensive country to live in,
but they do and life Is very much the
same there now as lu the states.
"Mining there is, however, attend
ed with a good many difficulties ev
ery foot ot ground excavated has to
be thawed out by steam, uoni costs
us f4 a ton. It is only 16 at Nome,
but it oosts us 8 to have it hauled
two miles and a half, aud iu the
pring it sometimes gets pretty
scarce, uur mine ii iiu leer, deep
with the ground frozeu all the way.
Ihe most dirt we have beou able to
take out lu a day is a yardage
equivalent to 8 feet deep aud 50 teet
long. This we do in winter and siuice
it out during the summer. The gold
is iu uuguets some of them pretty
large and come out free. We have an
other mine oalled the Diamond L
which we live not yet developed but
expect to do so before long. Near us
s the Alaruaret Aline owned ny a man
named Daly that will pan out between
WOO, 000 aud $100,000. The other
claims near us have been staked out
so many times and abandoned that it
is dillicultr to tell who(tbey do belong
to now. It takes nerve an staying
power to work a mine iu Alaska aud
a good many prospectors get discour
aged befote they make good."
When asked about the price oi liv
ing iu Alaska Samsou said that flour
oosts $6 a bar i el, butter 75 cents a roll
and other things in about the same
ratio., Drinks of ull kiuds are two
for a quarter beer as well as whiskey,
Kamuou expects to eleave ior oiiid
Sebptember 25, aud says that wheu ho
was there he was satisiied out now
that he has been iu the states for
awhile be looks forward to the long
oold winter in his far northern home
with some regret.
