fliltkntlc   Report  of Frenchmen
Jilst Arrived.
WALKED   THE   ENTIRE   DISTANCE.
Ttjer Made the Trip From Haiclton
to Glenora in 22 Day* Will)
Packs on Thelf Back..
Many men in Glenora will be
glad to have received at last
authentic news from the Hazelton
trail, of the positions of their
different outfits for whom they are
anxiously waiting, and this is
owing to the plucky performance
of Messrs. Maluin and Malassigne,
two Frenchmen, who have accomplished the remarkable feat of walking with packs on their backs from
Hazelton to Telegraph Creek in
22 days. They report to have
spoken with 34 outfits on the trail,
while they missed three others who
are supposed to have taken a wrong
turn. The distance from Hazelton to Telegraph Creek they estimate to be about 425 miles, and
they agree with all the others who
have come through that the trail
is in a shocking state. All the
outfits run short of food and their
horses play out; and it is owing to
their being without horses that
these two gentlemen were able to
come   through  in such good time.
The trail follows the Kispyox
River on the east bank for about
20 miles, and then bears to the
east and strikes the Skeena 40
miles away. It keeps close to this
river for about 50 miles and then
leaves it to take a westerly direction and afterwards again meets
the headwaters of the Skeena at
the Summit, known as Ground
Hog mountain, about 180 miles
from Hazelton. The Skeena meanwhile shapes its course like a great
horseshoe. It will be seen that the
trail here has taken a very zigzag
course which adds considerably to
its distance. Thirty miles before
reaching the Summit the travelers
passed some lakes, which, they
were informed by Indians living
there, were the source of the Naas
river.
The trail then took them 50
miles through open prairie country
towards another less important
summit and there they meet the
Stikine headwaters. Some few
days walking brought them to the
3rd South Fork of the Stikine
which is followed for about 50
miles when it is crossed by canoes.
This crossing is supposed to be
about 100 miles from Glenora.
Thence by a westerly direction another summit is mounted from
which the second South Fork
issues.   This is followed for about
30 miles and then crossed, after
which a straight course carries the
trail to Telegraph Creek leaving
the fork to the east.
From this description it will be
easily seen that the route as laid
down in most maps is quite erroneous, the one actually followed being a great deal longer, and from
this fact no one will be surprised
that many outfits have run short
of food.
Messrs. Maluin and Malassigne
met on the road four relief parties
who are carrying food for those in
need, and it is to be hoped that,
with the assistance of these, all
parties now on the trail will eventually arrive in safety.
The performance of these two
pedestrians proves that men walking have a superiority in speed
over horse and mule pack trains,
provided enough food can be carried to bring them through; and it
proves also how guilty are those
ignorant persons who have boomed
a trail over which they have never
traveled, but which has resulted in
much loss and disaster.
! three assays made of the average
I ore and the value was placed at
1 from eight to twenty dollars. It
has been the universal belief that
there was some rich ore on the
river, but little prospecting was
done for the reason that miners
seemed to be headed for the Klondike, and nothing short of it would
satisfy them, but as the most valuable properties on the Yukon are
taken, this part of the country is
receiving more attention and the
prospecting in a great many cases
is being rewarded by the discovery
of valuable gold bearing claims.���

THE MAJESTIC STIKINE.
The Discovery of a OUartx Vein on
the Hmtric.n Bid*.
A valuable vein of gold bearing
quartz has been discovered up the
Stikine river, tome fourteen miles
from this place, and on the American side of the boundary line.
The claims have all been taken and
the owners believe they have some
very valuable proper*y. The man
who first discovered the vein and
who, of course, took his choice,
was in the city last week and stated
to   a   News   man that he had had
m��. Connor Fell Over a Cliff White
Walking Near the Edge.
When Manager Strickland and
Mr.   Barlee went prospecting last
week they took with them a man
named Connor, who was to show
them the location of a quartz ledge
some   where   near   the   canyon.
While walking   too   near a cliff
last Monday Connor fell over.    He
caught at some bushes but they
were too   small   to support   his
weight,  and he fell  a distance of
forty feet,  injuring   his hip and
bruising himself badly. He was left
there and made as comfortable as
possible while  Messrs. Strickland
j and  Barlee came  to  Glenora for
I assistance.    They sent back a boat
' for the injured  man who will be
j brought to Glenora for treatment.
j Clearihue's pack train arrived
i from Teslin Sunday morning and
; left  again Monday on  the return
trip.    This makes their fourth trip
to Teslin this season.

Tohn Brown, who lives at Telegraph, and who was employed by
J. F. Callbreath in his warehouse
at that place, was drowned in the
Stikine river Monday afternoon
j about four o'clock, at the rapids
near McKenzie, Mann & Co's
I warehouse in Glenora.
Mr. Brown had come from Telegraph in a row boat bringing
some police officials, and had
started on his return trip, being in
a hurry to reach home as he had
just completed arrangements with
Mr. Stephenson, the Glenora
butcher, to deliver meat to him
early next morning, he went alone.
He was seen lining his boat up at
the rapids and had a fore and aft
line, which was wrapped around
his arms. It is thought when he
reached the strong current of the
rapids that he pulled the wrong
rope thereby throwing his boat
farther into the stream and drawing him in, and having the rope
around his body he was unable to
free himself until he was too far
out to reach shore. He was seen
by a number of men and was
thought to be swimming. He
called loudly for help but it all
happened so quickly, no one was
able to reach him. He was seen
for a short distance, but must
have either lost his presence of
mind or been attacked by cramps
for suddenly he sauk to be seen no
more. The deceased was 38 or 40
years of age and was well spoken
of by his acquaintances. No particulars have been obtained of his
former residence or where his relations are.
One singular incident connected
with it was that at the time he
met his death, he was towing in
his boat the outfit and personal
effects of young O'Brien who was
recently drowned.
Messrs. Boswell & Kendall came
in from the Ashcrof trail Thursdaj
with a small band of cattle. They
will take them to Teslin and there
butcher them and float them down
on rafts to Selkirk and Dawson.

who would probably tind it difficult
to show how they have arrived at
their estimates.      There is also another   matter,   which must not be
overlooked iq any calculation as to
the   value   of   the   gold   brought
clown.      That   is   the fact that in
many   of these reports it is stated
that some vessel has brought down
a certain sum���"ingold or drafts."
As these drafts hive been given in
payment for gold .-old to the banks
or trading companies in the Yukon
district, and the gold brought will,
of course, be shipped out, it is easy | Glenora ft
to see that an estimate based on
the reported amounts brought
down ' in gold or drafts," may
really include the value both of
the gold and the draft given in exchange for it.
We are, therefore, inclined to
think that the more moderate estimates   of   the output��� $8,000,000 '��� has   been
with equipment complete, at present employed for the Dominion
Government upon the Military
Transport between Glenora and
