From the Interior.
San Franoiseo, July 8—Th« steamer
Portland, which arrived from Cape
Nome, reporta that the ateamer Ro se
rrana, formerly the transport Missouri,
has gone aground about 60 miles south
of Cape Nome. While her situation is
not considered perilous, it is thought
she will have considerable difficulty in
getting off. The Roaecrans has a cargo
of government supplies on board.
The Portland brought five passengers
only, according to Captain Lundquist.
The steamer Charlea Nelson had a
hard time of it. She returned to Una
laska June 18. While trying to find an
opening in the ice her provisions gave
out. She was to have sailed again for
Cape Home shortly after the Portland
left Dutch Harbor. The captain of
the Corwin was holding the wrecked
barkentine Catherine Sudden at Nome
speaking of the conditions at Nome,
“What a man gets hold of up there

keeps it at the point of a gun. Restau
rants, lodging-houses, saloons, stores,
barber shops, and in fact all kinds of
business was left in the hands of agents
last fall. These agents have sold the
places and cleared out with the money.
Now the original owners are appearing
on the scene, and there are ‘razors in

as a general rule there was only about
one claimant to other mens’ property
in each case, but on the beach there
was never less than six. Agents sold
things right and left, and in conse
quence there will be endless litigation
before things are straightened out. No
wonder all the big claim-owners took
up lawyers with them.”
The Portland brought 10 boxes oi
gold, aggregating $300,000, belonging
to the Alaska Commercial Company.
Port Townsend, Wash., July 2.—Th«
steamer Al-Ki arrived from the north
tonight, bringing 60 passengers and
$250,000 in dust from Dawson, which
had been brought up the river on the
steamre Sybil. Among the passengers
on the Al-Ki is Lieutenant J. S. Her
ron, of the Eighth United States cav
alry, who a year ago started from Cook
Inlet with a small command and
crossed a hitherto unpenetrated coun
try leading for hundreds of miles over
mountains, valleys and plains to the
mouth of the Tanana. The expedition
was deserted by Indian guides, and for
some mouths fears for the safety of the
party were entertained, but on Decem
ber 11 the party reached the mouth of
the Tanana, where orders were received
to remain moil spring. The object o'
tne expedinon was to ascertain the
feasibility of the route through Alaska
and to obtain information as to miners,
timbers and general data of that sec
tion of Alaska between Cook Inlet and
the Yukon river. For nearly a year
the party was without news from the
outside world. Lieutenant Herron is
on the way to Seattle for orders.
Colonel E. D. Wiggin, land commis
sioner at Rampart, is among the pas
eengers on the Al-Ki, bringing the
first news from that section. He saye
the camp proved itself better last
winter than ever before, and creeks be
fore considered worthless turned out
to be big gold-proudcers. He estimates
the clean-up at $2,000,000.
Rampart was deserted the early part
of last winter, only 400 or 500 people,
who were not rich enough to go to
Nome, remaining. They comprised
steamboat hands and unfortunate min
ers. When development work com
menced it was soon proved that Ram

were at first out ot luck are now o
