On August 1, 1906, the Yukon Placer Mining Act became law and has since remained in force except for a few minor changes. Under th is act, creek claims are staked 500 feet along the base line (usually sllrveyej by the government abou t the center of t be valley) and 1,000 feet 011 each side of such base lines, and all ot,her claims "shall not ex· ceed 500 feet in length parallel to the basc line of the creek !-ownrr! which it fronts by 1,000 feet." The boundaries of any claim granted prior to August 1, 1006, can be enlarged to the size of a claim allowed bv the present act providing it does n~t interfere wit h ()ther own· e rs. In this way a great proportion of t he s mall hill claims staked un­ der the various regulations have becn inc'luded within the boun-iari es of creek claims 5OOx2,OOO feet, or "ot.hrr clainis" 5OOx1,000 feet. This is only. feasible when the ground adjoining th e dai m to be enlarged is vacant Dominion land or owned by t he same person.

It beghls at the south within thirty miles of the Pacific ocea)}, and extends to H erschel isl·ancl, where tile Mackelnic r i ver flows into the Arctic. It is about a thousand miles lo ng and several llUndred miles wide, and it has a nO'll1adic\ and settled popula­ t ion of Indians, Eskimos and white men . The aTmy that keeps this great tract in order consists of less than fifty men, and the record of, unpunished crime . s proportionately less than that of the kaiser. It is known ' as t he.
