A dangerous torest fire raged all day j vance this smoke was wafted down the The claims made for this trail are there- the great gold fields of the interior. It fore of a nature to excite considerable in needs b u t be mentioned to attract atten terest, and the work of the party now in the field will probably determ ine the tru th or falsity of these claims, though not one of the party has ever been iip the trail and it is possible that for this reason the results may not be as con­ vincing as they m ight be. There are sev­ eral points on the trail th at are very much in doubt. The first of these is the summit. There is positively no definite inform ation as to the character of the pass an the new trail Those who pre­ tend to know anything about it say there is an obstruction iu the pass which will j necessitate a tu n n el a coupla of hundred leet long, b u t th at when this is accom­ plished a good trail is to be found on the other side. A second objection is that th e trail would have to traverse a glacier. This is probably true, A mile of glacier covered with boulders and gravel is m st with before the sum m it is reached. This glacier, however, is of suob a na­ ture that it will offer no difficult engi­ neering problem to the building of a railroad, should the summit be an easy oue and the grade on tha other side prac­ ticable, Between the sum mit and L ake tion to the pubjeet. Little doubt exists about the practicn- i bility of the Anderson trail, the new route to Lakes Lindem an and Bennett, i startin g to the left of Canyon City and proceeding thence hv a very easy grade to an (inappreciable summit,, and thence to Lake Lindem an or Bennett. There is no desire w hatever on the part of those interested in tills trail lo give publicity i to its merits; in tru th they will im part little er no informanion regarding it, and facts about it are obtained from outside sources only. W ithout doubt, however, i it is the best trail to the lakes, and it will j not be a surprise if capital is invested for its development. yesterday around Canyon City and as we go to psess is still bnr.dng with vigor between the latter point and Sheep Camp. ^ The sawmill near Canyon City was de valley and covered the city, making things look very much like Puget Sound in summer when the forest fires are under way.

XIEPA KTl'RR OF MR P.0.SH A U .C R 088 ! l a t h e departure of Mr P. G. Shsll- aross, m anager of the large interests of I'hallcross, M acaulay & Co., the city will lose one of its most esteemed citizens and the business community one of its most enterprising members. From the birth of the city last fall up to the present time he has been one of the foremost in all projects and plans which had for their object the welfare of the city, and his purse was always open for the fu rth e r­ ance of these things. In this latter re­ spect he was one of the truly liberal men of the city. H is counsel and bis liberal j ity will both be sadly missed in th e fu­ ture. The citizens of Dyea cannot help regretting th at his business interests com­ pel Mr. Shallcross to leave the commu­ nity he did so m uch to build up, and it is hoped by all th at he will one day re­ turn to m ake his home here. Mr. 8hall- cross is now busily engaged in settlingup the affairs of his firm, the principal part of which is the closing o u t of the im ­ mense stock of goods comprised in their two stores, known as the Chilcoot T rad­ ing Company, and this work will be com­ pleted in a abort time, the m erchants of this city being large buyers of the com­ pany’s stock. Mr. bhallcross will leave in a short tim e for the iuterior, where his company is said to be acquiring large interests. T he Trail takes occasion herewith to wish Mr. Shalloross the best of luck in bis new field of operations. M anager G riffiths of the Riverside ho­ tel refuses to release the m anuscript of the lecture which 8am Wall was to have delivered to the ladies of Dyea. We are therefore compelled to forego the pleas­ ure of printing the lecture. The next best thing, we think, is to insist that Mr Griffith» commit the lecture to memory and deliver it. We suggest this to Miss H artm an. I t is our opinion that a lec­ ture w ritten by Sam Wall and delivered by M r Griffiths would prove a huge sue cess. It would be a happy combination. The rush from the lakes to Lawson is on in earnest. Thousands of boats are en route. It is said that everything is now clear. The regulations of the Can adian authorities regarding W hite Horse rapids, however, will, if enforced, cause considerable delay. At present only one boat is allowed to go through the rapide every ten m inutes. Of course there will be a howl at this regulation, and the time between boats will probably be cut in two, if such has not already been done. SUM M IT OF CHILKOOT PASS K. W. Fisk.

Trlhutnry of St.vrurt River Which la Turning Out Rich. A great rush to the Sta wart nrer ia predicted. Reports of rich strikes on tributaries of that river have reached the thousands on the way down, snd there is little doubt that many of them will tara the bows of their boats up the Stewart which empties into the Taken abent 75 miles thia side of the Klondike, and for about a knnered miles distant from its month flows parallel with the Klondike. The newest strike was made 75 miles from its confluence with the Yukon on what m well known by all old time Yukoners as McQnesten creek, which is about 65 miles long and receives its source from the same mountain ranges which feed the yellow metal Into the rioh tributaries of the Klondike. It rises a little north of •sat of Too Much Gold «reek or nearly dne east of Dawson, and flows a little west of south, where it mingles with the Stewart river waters. The stream has a most favorable location as a gold propo­ sition . The creek was discovered soon after the discovery of Forty Mile, at whiok time several claims were staked, but subsequently abandoned before any thorough prospecting had been done. At that finie it was pronounoed the banner creek of Stewart river, but owing to its remoteness from supplies and the fact that it is distinctly winter diggings, about which very little was then known, it was listed with the ou pay dirt streams, though m t until several specimen nug­ gets were taken ont which established the presence of coarse gold. For most of the distanoe the hills rise very abrupt­ ly from the water and it is called a rapid stream. The gold taken out in 1891 was maiuly from the bars, whioh could be worked only in early spring or late sum­ mer, owing to high waters. Msny places exist in the ereek bed where gravel is sev­ eral feet in depth and can be work.d with profit only by drifting, and than only when tko winter frosts check the water from running iuto the workings. In the earlp spring -of 1891 an old prospector from Colorado was druwned while at­ tempting to wash the gravel from a bar by taking it out through a hole out in the ioe. The following autumn two prospec­ tors purchased winter supplies and w eut up the river to do winter development work on their claim, but their boat upset and they barely escaped with thair lives. This was the only pretension made at winter working until the past season, when claims yielded coarse gold freely some of tke prospects going as high as #31 to the pan. The presumably richest portion of the creek is already staked and the rush has fairly begun. Bob Henderson, an old time Yukoner, has lo­ cated a quarrer section of lund at the mouth of the creek for townsite pnrnoses, aDd a new camp will spring np there this season. The site is a most favorable one, since McQnesten creek is at the head of navigation for small steam craft on the Stewart river. It is said that Henderson is joined in his venture by Alex McDonald C.W. YOUNG An astonishing order was received last week by the Chilooot Trading Co. It was for 8000 pounds of bacon to be sent to D aW Bon via St Michael. The bacon was shipped to the sound on the Rosalie, to be transferred to one of the large steamers on the ocean run. This order was a tribute to Dyea as an outfitting point and shows the ability of our mer­ chants to fill the largest orders. B RAN C H H O U 8JS SHEEP CAMP. e-ias?

Most people who have never visited this portion of Alaska, imagine th at it is a A cold, dreary and desolate region where nothiug grows and where the inhabitants have to ge about dressed in furs to keep warm. Such is i ot the k case, ^however, for at the piesent tim e the people of Dyea are enjoying as nice w eather as can be found anywhere on this globe. As we write ladies are passing the office dressed in light summer olothing while a num ber of childreu are wading about in a pond near by in their bare feet. The adjacent hills are covered w ith a m antel of green dotted hers and there with fra­ grant wild flowers .and sweet flavored berries, while here in towD there are in­ num erable gardens where all kinds of vegetables are thriving. The woods abound with all kinds of game, while the rivers and Lynn oanal teem with fish. The w inters here are not so very oold. The w riter spent last winter here and it was only on one or Jtwo occasions th at thermom eter w ent below zero. Num er­ ous persons lived all winter in tents and 1JÏEA TRAIL.

That oitv did a large and lucretive business during the w inter and spring rush to the goldfields and if there is any other busi ness in sight the busiests men of Seattle want all of it or at least ■ share. In this connection it recently dawned upon the Seattle people that San Frano’sco was doing a land office business owing to the concentration of troops at th at point. This has caused the i-eattle Times to froth »t the m outh and to soundly berate the congressmen and Senators of the State of .Washing for allowing this state of affairs to exist. The Times says that Seattle should have all if not the greater portion of this trade as it is 2,000 miles nearer M anilla than San Francisco aud for th at reason if for r.o other the g veru m ent should have chosen Seattle as the place of embarkation for the troops to M anilla. We are very much afraid th at Seattle will n et get any government pap during the present unpleasantness. We thought to have bad some good war news to publish this week but up to the hour of going to press there has been no news of a battle received. The latest reports that have been received here are that Commodore Schley had Cerva’s fleet bottled up in the harbor of Santiago de Cuba, and that he could annihilate him whenever he saw fit. We hope th at he will get a little of Dewey’s activity and immediately proceed to crush Cerva and his fleet and that the game time Admiral Sampson will proceed to bom baid Havana and raze Moro Castle to the ground The ice in the lakes aud in the rivers is rapidly breaking up aud soon the vast concourse of people now gathered at the lakes will be floating down the river to wards Dawson, where they expect to gain fortunes. In two m onths from now there will be double as many people there as | cow, for the immense am ount of gold I th at will come out next m onth will be | the cause Jof a stam pede such as has I ! never before been known in the history of mining. Everyone goes to the gold fields via Dyea—even Portus B W eare of the N orth American Trading and Transporta­ tion Co Eleven days from Seattle to Dawson (via Dyea only) tells the story, and a w onderful story it is. W hy should any man go to Dawson by way of 8 t Michael? I t is a costly, uncertain, time consuming r ute, aud by next year will likely be little used. i Vogee SIGN PAINTING .

M anager Levy and his aides had arranged everything for the com fort and convenience of the guests, and the mnsic rendered by the orchestra from the 14th infantry was «scellent. A dainty aDd appetizing lunch was served by the ladies. Another ball will be given by the baseball boys at an early date, and there is no' doubt it will be even a greater success than the last one. There was a strange face in towa one day this week. I t was th a t of Archie B urns of Sheep Oamp. Archie used to be a m ost fam iliar figure on our streets, but of late has put in all of his time u p the trail. He starts down the river fro m B ennett with a scow about the 15th. Alaska showed a gain of $614,300 in gold production last year, alm ost entirely from the ooast mines. The great mines on Douglas island are largely increasing their m illing capacity, sod to th e Alaska Treadwell and the A laska Mexican a third, the Alaska U nited, has been added, which, however, was not a pro­ ducer in 1897, its mill having been but lately completed. The tram way around W hite Horse rapids is reported to be running a» slick as a w histle. The cars rnn down to the w ater’ s edge and into a slip, the boat glides on to the car and away they go awiftly and «asily. I t is said the tram ­ way is doing a large bn sine»». Photo graphs of the line are in possession of Mr. P G Shalleross, manager of the Chil- eoot T rading Co. Henry Macaulay, of the firm of S p ratt & Macaulay, of V ictoria, was in town this week. H e is on his way to the inte­ rior w ith a stock of merchandise, in com­ pany w ith his brothers Jam es and Tom. Jam es has m ads a half dozen trips in and out of the gold fields in the last four or five years. H enry M acaulay brings the news th at a great crowd of Kloudi kera who are unable to get through by the Stiokeen route are com ing to Dyea to go in over the Chilkoot pass. The Stick- •en route has proved the greatest failure of the year. Incredible as it may seem, it is even worse than the W hite pass, for once in a great while a story reaches civ­ ilization to the effect th at some adven turous spirit has endured th e fearful hardships of the dead horse way and reaohed the other side alive. B ut even this much cannot be said of the Stickeen. Who enters there leaves hope behind. I t is said that 5000 people are stuck there aud that as many of them as can afford to make the trip will come this way— -the only way. E . L .

Humor» of « new gold strike reaohed Dyes lute Thursday evening, and before 1 1 in dawn of Friday morning a dozon per- . sans had left for the scene of the reporied find. The exact location of the alleged strike deems to be not very well known; u faot, it is very indefinite. The report reached l yen from Haines Mission, and :s to the effect th a t the strke was made on the C hilkat river, in a southwesterly direction from Dyea. I t is said that every white m an at the Mission has gone to the new diggings l ’articvlsrs of the find are meagre in every respect, but flake gold is said to have been found in paying quantity. T hat is as far as the particulars go at this time. If there is any m erit in the alleged discovery it will take but a few days to find it out. I t is quite probable, however, that there is little foundation for a rush to the Mis­ sion. the point of departure for the dig­ gings- The members of the Dvea Literary so- oiety will take an outing to K napp's Park tomorrow, accom panied by their sketch­ ing materials. After enjoying themselvf s rmid the beauties of nature and parlak ing of luncheon the club will informally disperse for the sum mer. The elub has been a great success and many lasting friendships have been formed among its members. It is anticipated by the Pacifio Coast Steamship Co. th at the Alaska excursion business this year will call for the addi­ tion of another steam er. Should this an­ ticipation prove well founded the com­ pany’s new and speedy vessel the Sena­ tor will be added. There ought to be no trouble or delay in getting mail in or ont ef th e gold fields this summer. W ith steamers ru n ­ ning every day from Lindem an and Ben­ nett there m ight easily be a weekly mail service. Mrs Lizzie Scharoyer of Skaguay was the guest of Mrs H S Potter on W ednes­ day last.
