Proposed Overland
Expedition To Yukon
Qolden a Prospective OnMlttlng '"olnt

and Supplier*.
At the meeting of the Alaska Mining,
Development und Exploration Co. held
at Spokane last week Mr. J. Gulbraith,
with whom the Era has been in communication, was asked to address the
From the Spokesman Review we
learn that a full attendance of the directors and stockholders was present.
The tinie was principally consumed in
perfecting plans for the company's
large overland expedition to Alaska
scheduled to start March loth next,
Further information concerning the
route being desired, James Gulbraith
of Hauser Junction, Idaho, was called
in to address tho meeting. He was
one of the pathfinders of the Hudson
Bay Company in the Northwest Territory. He penetrated to within 75
miles of the place where Dawson City
now stands, years auo a decade at
least before the United States had purchased the territory of Alaska from
the Russian government and when
Fort Yukon was the furthest outpost
of civilization in the northwest. He
described the topographyof the country,
its mineral wealth and tho facilities
for sustaining life in a manner that
was highly edifying.
Speaking of the country along the
McKenzie and Stewart rivers, Mr.
Galhraith said that when he and his
companions passed over it they tested
pans of dirt along the streams in numerous places. At. no place did they
fail to find gold colors and in the majority of places they found good pros
pects. They discovered many places
where they could pan from 815 to $20
per day. They wero not prepared to
remain and mine and since that time
he has had no opportunity to return.
Tue most significant thing that Mr.
Galhraith said and the one that puts
the overland proposition "in a nutshell"
is that a man can start on horseback
from Spokane and ride all the way to
Dawson City, with the exception of
the stream's tliHt he will have to ford. |
His former trip when he penetrated nsj
far as tho mouth of the Stewart rjv r
was made in mid-winter and he asserts
that he can leave Spokane at the p;es
ont time and reach Dawson City by
June 1st.
Wo have received the following letter from Mr. Galbraith.
Spokane Bridcik, Wash.,
Jan. 5tu, 1898.
pRAlt Sir- The maps, your letters of
information, and Mr. MolterK's clear
explanation, fills all I want to deliver tho address intended by me on tht
''Galhraith Spokane and Golden Routo
to Klondike."
I was vagabondizing and prospecting through tho country, looking up
placers, but lacked such energetic company as is required to make a success.
I left my whipsaw, quicksilver,
copper-plates, picks, near Jasper House
and starting from Jasper House, got to
Smoky River. I went down Peace
River to Nelson Forks, 250 miles,
thence to Liard River 180 miles, along
Liard to Dense 180 miles; from Dense
River to Polly River 150 miles; along
Pelly to Junction of Lewis, say 260
miles. There I turned back. I thought
I was at Stewart River, hut I think
now I was mistaken: anyhow I was
on navlgatnble waters to oarry mo to
Yukon. I took the party hack :o Ed*
tnonton in lato October, crossed Vermillion Pass, and was at Wild Horse
Creek 24th or 26th of Nov., having
been three years gone from that point,
in 1870. 1871 and 1872. J wintered at
soma place close to Tete Jaime Cache,
say 40 miles. Pro(n tho day I left
Edmonton I never panned a pan of
dirt, but I got gold loss or more, I
crossed ledges of galena 40 feet wide.
I took pure copper, cut it out with my
knife from rugged ledges. I saw coal
ledges 50 to 60 fpet wide on creeks and
sides of mountains. I saw oil floating
on the waters. Every lake contained
grand,glorious fat white fish; every hill
deer, bear, moose and cam boo. t saw
glaciers Indian or white man's foot, or
perhaps his eye never saw; killed the
big horn, the mountain sheep, feasted
on trout, .char and grayling; caught all
beaver we wanted; saw salt ponds
from which wo evaporated with our
frv pans all we wished for horses and
cooking; could have cut millions of
tons of finest hay; saw timber such as
mortal eye ttever looked on (white
pine); cut grass for our horsos; had
myself five horses, others three and
four, twelve in all, and they did not
eat it all. We trapped beaver, fox.
martin, fishers, otter, and saw ledges
and mountains of mica all colors, and
quartz where I saw gold with the
naked eye, but did not think then they
were worth looking at. I have learned
different since. I have skinned bars
of rivers and took 120 per day fine
gold. I saw slides from mountains
which were grand and terrible. Iron
was all over great beds, where and

Some months ago we suggested a rein-

yet heard disputed. It was thi<: That

the extra dollar paid for recording

fact that no work had tieen i)o\\e on

any person the right of re-locating the
property, but no person should he allowed to do so twice. Thus the combines now operating so deternuentally,
would be broken up."

The Prospector says: Fort Steele
promises to have its own Klondike on
Brewery Creek next spring Recently
there has been a rush for claims on tho
creek named, which empties into the
Wild Horse about three miles from
this city. A fow days ago R. 0,
Jennings brought in some I
specimens of coarse gold, and now
every bit of the ground on the creek
has been taken up.
J. Barr came, in on Tuesday from
his claims at tho headwaters of the
Blaeberry. He has driven one tunnel
50 feet on the lead and another tunnel
was put In 1.1 feet, when a big snow
slido occurred an 1 blocked tbe work

Ho will have it Sufficiently developed
bv the spring to know pretty well what
its prospects are.
With renpeot to tho Lanark mine
Home-Payne stated at tho meeting
of shareholders that in all 16,289 tons
of oro wero treated in the company's
concentrator, milled about i) to 1 and
produced 1820 tons of concentrates,
which yielded a not profit of $l(i,000.
During May the company shipped 430
tons of concentrates, tho product of
3200 tons of crude ore, the gross value
of which was 535,000. When concentrates which average over $80 to the
ton, yield less than $0 profit it is evident that the Lanark is a very expensive mine to work or that there is a
heavy penalty paid for tho treatment
of its product. Home Payne announced that in view of the expense
attending the working of tho Lanark,
the company had decided to close it
G. B. Dean has completed his contract in the International Basin for
Messrs. Jolliffe and Strncey and L. B.
Keyser. On the Maud S ho drove tho
tunnel 220 feet, and sank a shaft of 40
feet, half of which was on the lead
which tho shaft was put down to cut.
Messrs. Jolliffe and Stracey got an
assay of ��52 from this ore, being made
up of .35 02R. gold, 28.07 ozs. silver,
and $16.65^ per cent copper. On the
Standby tho tunnel formerly put in
there was extended for 70 feet, making
112 feot in all. The white iron found
in this tunnel assayed $12$ In gold.
Another sample of ore got from tho
shaft assayed $35 in gold and silver.
It was not assayed for copper. On the
Picton claim a tunnel was driven 66
feet and cut a lead 2J feet thick. Mr.
Dean will go to West Kootenay, but
intends returning In the spring.

Act needs amendment; so as to prevent)
a few prospectors from tying up a
whole section of country for an indefinite period, will be conceded, wo bo
lieve, even by the association. How
to get over this difficulty withou* injuring the vocation of the honest prospector, is a point upon which there is
considerable diversity of opinion, even
among good practical men. While all
admit that upon the prospector primarily depends tho pros pet Ity of the
mining industry, few will deny thai
he h h not abused his privileges in
vary many instances by staking of a
far gieater number of claims than lie

intention of working. By a partnership arrangement with some unprincipled man, he can prevent others from
touching these properties as long as
he likes to hold on to 'hem, dog-in the*
mangel' style, as the claims aro simply
transferred from one man to the other
year after year. In this wav large
tracts of country have been practically
lied up for years, undoubtedly to the
detriment of the community. To remedy this evil several valuable suggestions have boon made Provincial

GOLDEN, B, C.        Who
We have done our utmost to draw
public attention to what we belie-.e to
be the great highway to the north and
to open up the eastern portion of British Columbia. P.iulie opinion is being
aroused, us the letters which wo have
published In the last three issues havo
fhown. We are glad to see some of
our contemporaries backing up our remarks on this important subject. The
Vancouver World has tho following
interesting remark-' on the route that
we havo been advocating, based on
the report made by Mr. Mel'ouuell of
the Geological  Department:
"The great inter-mountain valley referred to above, and of which mention
is so frequently made in this report,
forms one of the most imporunt topographical features of British Columbia.
It crosses the international boundary
about, longitude llf)" IU' W and runft
in n direction north {IB8 W. along the
western base of tho Rocky Mountains,
separating the latter from the Solki.'U
and other ranges on the west, for a
distance of over 800 miles. It is
entirely independent of the present
drainage system of-the country, as i;
is occupied successively, beginning at
the boundary, hy a number of rivers
belonging to distinct systems, among
which are Kootenay, the Columbia,
Canoe River, the Fnncr, Bud River.
the Parsnip, the Finlay and tho To
chieca. The line between tho Bad
River and the Fraser has net yet been
surveyed, and its extension, if any bo*
���t'ondiheTocliiecais still unknown. Its
width varies from two to lo miles,
and it is everywhere inclosed.except for
some distance along the west bank of
the Parsnip, by mouuin ranges varying in height fro 11 2,000 to tf.OOO feet
or more above the valley.
"Till' width of the valley does not
depend on tho size of the stream which
occupies it at any particular place. It
is fully as wide along the smaller
streams and at (he watersheds    which
erized by the same features which pro-
vail below.    The r n;o bordering it on
the east is regular and well defined,
and has an elevation of 2,5CQ feet
above the level of the valley.
"We follow up tho right (east) bank,
and two miles further on reach the
junction of the Finlay and Thudaca, a
rapid mountain stream, heading in the
Peak range. Above the Thudaca the
Finlay has a rapid flow, and is interrupted by several small falls and rapids
for a distance of six miles. Above this
reach, what appears to be an old lake
basin begins, tho rocky bauds and he U
which characterize it below suddenly
disappear, and are replaced by clay,
silt and gravel The current diminishes to about a mile and a half an
hour, and the stream expands to twice
its former siz*. The Mat bordering the
river is intersected by sloughs, and
holds a couple of small sheets of water,
known to the Indians as the Fishing
lako. The valley here has a width of
about a mile and a half,and is bordered
by mountains, 4,COO to 5,000 feet above
the river, belonging to the Peak
���'The expanded lake-like portion of
the Finlay has a length of about 18
miles. Near its head, the river is divided into several branches. The
western branch {called Thucatalo by
Finlay) was ascended hy Mr. Finlay.

Men who come in from the Crow's
Nest railway works complain to us
bitterly of the treatment they have re
ceived, having worked for months
without having a dollar coming to
them. Although the law does not
recognize it to be such, it is just as
much a crime to steal a man's labor
as his purse, and if half the reports
aro true then we have no hesitation iu
Stating that the Crows Nest railway
works form one of the most gross
scandals in the history of labor in
Canada. The public moneys are going
to build this road, and it is the dllt'v
of the Government to see that the men
employed on the works are paid fair
wages and aro justly treated. We
hope that the enquiry which the Government have inaugurated will be au
exhaustive Olio, and that if tho company are deserving of the blame that
appears to attach to them, fhoGovernment will have no hesitation in doing
what Is plainly their duty, to remedy
the grievances of the employees.
Wn acknowledge receipt  from
publishers of the January  number of
the Kootenay Guide.
The Provincial Government have
decided on opening up the old telegraph
trail via Ashcroft to Telegraph Creek.
Thev should also open up the Mohprlv
trail first thing in the spring to Tete
Jaune Cache.
The Nelson Tribune says that the
Canadian Pacific Railway Company
has abandoned tbe attempt to build
the Kootenay lake end of the Crow's
Net railway with labor at $1 50 per
day. It is announced that when Dave
MacBeath starts work upon his piece
of the road that navvies will he paid
$.2 per day, with charges for board set
at $5.25 |er week. It is also said that
men on rock work will be paid $2 25
and $2.50 per day. The establishment
of thonQ rates will have the effect of
raising the rate of wages over the on-
tire line.

2. The trail from Donald to the
Boat Encampment is iu fairly good
shape. I made it in five day*, dis-
ance 87 miles. Next summer I intend
to put it iu good shape so that it c*.n
be done in four days.

Dkar Sin, lu reply to your enquiry
regarding my knowledge of the Dyke
Cure for Intemperance, I have to say
that it was brought under my notice
about a year ago, and I specially interested myself in a number of cases
that were treated by it. In some of them
the results were remarkable, several
parties who wero confirmed inebriates
becoming entirely changed and remaining till the present time sober mid use
fill citizens. Several other parties
treated at the same time I have lost
sight of, but do not - ersonallv know
ofu caseout of a half a dozen in which
the treatment was not. successful.
With best wishes I remain.
Yours sincerely.

half his time to prospect. This may
