A (hocking accident occurred on
the C. P. R, line on Sunday night resulting in the death ol Brakeman
Berger. A freight train had lelt Rev-
elttoke for Kamloop, in charge, ot
Conductor Lee Anderton. A light
engine going to Vancouver from the
prairie followed in charge of Engineer
Harriett. Going up Notch Hill tbe
light engine ran into the caboose ol
the Ireight train, and Brakeman Berger wa, killed. Supt. Kilpatrick and
Dr. Cross darted immediately forth*
scene of the accident.
The body ol Brakeman Berger wa,
brought into Revelstoke for the in-
queit and interment.
The collision must have occurred
with tremendous force aa the cabooie
was smashed into matchwood and the
nest car telescoped while the c.r con
nections through ibe train were
wrecked. Deceased was caught between the caboose and the next car
and death must have been in.t.n-
taneous.
Much sympathy ia felt with Mra.
Anderson, mother of deceased, and
with the other member, of the family
in their ,ad bereavement.

HORRIRLE
TRAGEDY
Women and Three Children
Burned.
Portage La Prairie, Jan. 15.—A
most horrible tragedy occurred near
here early yesterday morning in which
three children of Mr, and Mr,. H.
Brazil and their aged aunt lost their
lives in a fire which destroyed all ot
the farm buildings on their property
In the stable seven valuable horse,
and all the farm equipment, including seed grain, were also burned. Mr.
and Mr,. Brazil and three ot their
family of ,ix children escaped the
fury of tbe flames which engulfed
them in an incredibly short time.
The oldest daughter lost her life in
a heroic effort to lave the sleeping
little ones, and the saddest of all was
the fate of the little baby which Mrs.
Brazil was carrying in her arms, In
forcing an upstairs window she lost
her balance and fell through the floor,
the baby dropping into the flames.
The survivors suffered terrible exposure, being clad only in the thirj-
neBt night robes.

Adopts New Style of Smelting
Furnace.
A new furnace, the Bluncbard, a
recent American modification, and
the lirst of its kind in use in British
Columbia at least, was blown in at the
Pilot Bay smelter on Friday. An
exhaustive series of experiments was
first performed with various ores, but
chiefly with the lead ores of the Blue
Bell mine. The results of the experiments are declared to have , been
entirely satisfactory to the management and great hopes are entertained
of the success of the new process.

MINING
INVESTMENTS
Coming Into Active Demand.
Thoughtful men, for the last few
yearB, have been noting the evolution that has been taking place in
eastern financial circles regarding
' mining investments. Whereas, ten
years it was not easy to find a prominent man who had any connection with mining interests, now
they are numbered by the thousands, and their number is steadily
increasing. They have discovered
that mining is no more hazardous
than any other industry if carried
on with proper safeguards. The
immediate result has been profitable operations in western fields,
with increased capital ready to
take hold. One of the most successful mining men in Montana,
who has recently returned from an
extended visit to the east, where he
has extensive connections, notes
the change of sentiment regarding
the mining industry in general and
Montana in particular, says the
Chicago Mining World. He says
in this connection:
" There are now more responsible business and financial men
identified with the mining industries of the country than at any
other time in the history of the
development of tbe mineral resources of the great west. The number
of mining stocks on which quotations are. now made in New York
and Boston are over 300, compared
with about 80 three years ago, and
to this collection may be added
miscellaneous mining stocks which
are not quoted publicly, but for
which a market exists. Tl.e mining industry in the past did not
always enjoy the best of reputations, and there  are many" who
have suit! thev would 'have none
i
of it,' because of the results of misjudged 'flyers.' The industry is
now surrounding itself with factors
that are making it a well-recognized branch of the industrial development of the country. This
evolution, so to speak, from 'wild-
catting' to respectful consideration
has not been the result of any particular form instituted by any man
or group of men, hut is largely due
to the calmer discrimination which
has been exercised from time to
time by those inclined to become
interested In mining property."
These changed conditions are felt
and appreciated in Montana and
other western states, Nu longer
can a smooth talker, armed with
elaborately printed stock certificates and nothing else, go east and
sell stock. And such attempts are
no longer considered. The man or
men with good properties, upon
which u report from a recognized
mining engineer cull lie made, has
no trouble at the present time in
getting all the capital necessary in
the east, to develop the properties,
Such being the case in the United Stales, where mining lias been
curried on for so many years, the
question arises are we in western
Canada justified in asserting that
eastern Canadian capitalists are
•'slow" at investing in li. 0, mines?

THE CITY MEETING.
The city is to be congratulated
oa the orderly, courteous • and
business-like meeting of electors
held on Friday last. The meeting
was probably the beet civic meeting
yet held and was an indication of
the highest satisfaction with the administration of the city and educational affairs, during the past year.
That satisfaction was emphasised
by the excellent balance-sheet
presented and the clearness with
which it showed the items of
receipts and expenditure.
example followed by others, If
Canada ia to be built to a nation
with a great destiny there should
be whole-souled co-operation in the
development of the national resources and the establishment and
operation of those industries which
will afford a means of employment
for the masses.

When we look at the countries that
have been deforested, as Spain,
we see how, with the destruction of
the forests, civilisation and progress huve departed. Some one
has said this is the age of steel but
it is also the age of wood, and no
country that has not an abundant
supply of timber can make sub-
stuiuiiil industrial progress. Clim-
tcs ure changed and violent
weather conditions exist where the
country has been denuded of its
furwts. For years students of
forestry have sent forth the warii-
ini; voice against the wanton
destruction of forests and the necessity thut exists for their preservation mid rehabilitation.
At Ihe convention, It. L, Borden,
tlm Conservative leader, struck the
key-note of the position when he
spoke of the highly successful reforestation in progress in Saxony
and mid: "There should be con-
iiiiiiity in any such policy. The
timber should not be regarded as a
crop to be destroyed, and one
which would be renewed in a hundred or a hundred and fifty years,
[ bill us the capital of the state upon
j which private enterprise should not
[ li. allowed unduly to encroach-"
j It has long been regarded as a
i fact that the life  of  n   lumbering
EDUCATION RESERVES.
It is to be hoped the provincial
legislature will see the wisdom of
having large land reserves made
for educational purposes before any
further alienation of public land
takes place. These reserves should
be administered by a board of say
three commissioners and the revenue derived therefrom applied
towards relieving the province
of the burden of the cost of education to be raised annually by direct
taxation. The value of the reserv'es
so made would be continually on
the increase, and in a few years
they might bring in sufficient revenue to pay half the annual education bill. There is no better or
more useful national purpose to
which the national estate could be
applied, and, while it is a matter
of regret the policy has been delayed, right now is the time to give
effect to it.
We join with the western press
in the demand for stronger cabinet
representation of the west at
Ottawa. The west is building up
rapidly and it is only a matter of
time till it has the balance of
power. Ontario and Quebec must
recognise this feature, and concede
the rights of the west by a decrease
in the number of eastern members
of the cabinet and the increase of
the western ministers. At present
Hon. F. Oliver is practically the
sole cabinet representative of tbe
larger half of Canada,

FATO ACCIDENT
j      ICont in nnd from P«g« One]  I    \ j
4 . 1—-_-
and it wm 24.7. Wreck occurred
about U o'clock. Rule 98 would .got
have trerted the accident. Asked
operator to book me out at Sicamous.
To Mr. Brigg,: The average, time
lor a freight train between Revelstoke
and Kamloops i, „ight hour, sometime* it i, done in ,ix hours. There
ia a serie. of ctirvee on the track thi,
aide If Carlin. The distance a headlight could be aeen i, from 12 to 15
car length, to half-a-mile. Nothing
in my 'order, indicated anything
following my train. It wa, duty of
train draw to protect rear.
I',',   A. J. BrtONDRETT.
Engineer of engine 1003, hauling
the freight train, said he had no arrangement with the conductor about
the ere* eating in the caboose, but
tbe brakeman told him they were
going to do bo, as was customary going
up that hill. Considered rule 98
void a, affecting that hill and a train
-equipped a, it i, today. The object of
the rule li for the men to help in oaae
the air brake failed. According
to the , . rule there should
have been a man on the platform of
the caboose. The chance, of accident
-would: have been diminished aa lie
would have had every chance of aeeing
the headlight of a following engine if
■following 25 minute, out of Salmon
Arm. ; From the train order produced
the engineer knew the other train
was on the road and had to u,e hi,
judgment accordingly, a, the order
left him without any knowledge of the
location of the train and he should be
prepared to atop anywhere. With the
light engine it would be safe to run
•from here to Kamloops in four hour,.
Have made from- here to Sicamou, in
an hour and 35 minutes. It would
not be dangerous running from here
to Sicamou, in an hour. Running
from Sicamou, to Carlin in 20 minute, was a good rate of speed.
To Mr. Lewis:—Seeing the headlight and stopping the train were two
different things. If the light engine
had been running 15 to 20 miles an
hour it, could probably have been
-stopped. If a fusee had been put out
it would not have given the engineer
time to stop. The clearance did not
'free him from registering at Sicamoiis,
('. E. KOB1TEI.I.E,
■night operator at Sicamoiis, said:—
1003 got there at 21:40 and I reported
to despatcher on train leaving at 22
o'clock. Know of no time when despatcher tried to get me and could
not. AdvUed despatcher of Anderson's
train when coining in. Booked him out, The light engine
came in at 23:05, and told the
despatcher when she was coming. Ke
suid "0. K." and 1 cleared board.
Engine stayed about live minutes but
engineer did not come in. My lump
nnd the gas were burning. I was
standing at telegraph table. Did not
see engineer get down to book, Order
Buys "no operators on duty," but I
waB on duty. I take my oath the
■ engineer never cunie into the wailing
room that night. Tho register book
was outside the wicket. I wondered
why he did not come in to see mo or
book, so I booked him in nnd out.
To Mr. Lewis:—A light engine
should register same a, a train.
Supt. Kilpatrick—Have you ever
known the door at SiciimoiiB station
locked or the register inucccssable to
anyone?—Witness, no.
To Mr, Brlggs—The door wus kind
of closed nnd i he wicket closed.
Supt, Kilpatrick—Could n man go
into that room without you hearing
him'.'—Wltnoss, no,
U'. ll. HAIIHIETT
Wits then called and suid: Reoclvod
orders produced at 21.67 on the l-lth
and left nt 22, Did nut stop till arriving at Sloanious Junction, where 1
arrived at 28,6, Went Into waiting
room to register and found no register
there. Not finding it went hack to
engine and pulled OUt, Station looked
to me as il olostd up nnd there appeared to Im nobody on duty, Saw no
light except nicker from stove in
telegraph olliee, lull did not look
particularly,   Remarked to fireman
■'tho still ion must lie closed up tonight." Told him I gucsed that wus
probably tie reason th" orders stated
"no operator) on duty," I iva, not
anxious to get cloarnnce there o, ii
win not necessary, l>id not stop again
till I hit rear end ol Hum, whioh
occurred at 2-1,6. I slowed up at
Carlin mile board in IT) miles an hour,
12 our lentils till, ,ldo ol oust Ciirlin
switch tbe lireiniiii shunted there  una
a train ahead and I put brake in
emergency, The boie.r in front of
caboose went through the Caboose and
Brakeman Berger was killed:
To Mr. Lewi,—I  knew the  train
It Revelstoke .three,hours ahead. I
ijd not figure on pa«,jngher.i   >'
To the Coroner—Ikept a look out
for iter under flag", protection. On
freight extra, speed is in accordance
with engineer's judgment. There is
no schedule, The1 Jpeed pf'jlie engine
wa, a retonable and safe Upeed for
that clan of engine. . Did not tell
anyone I wa, going to make a new
record on that division, The despatcher asked me how long it would take
me to go over, if I could make it in
four hour,? I said "ye,." The quickest time I made over the division was
4 hours and 45 minutes with 797 and
made two or three stop,. Expected
to see operator at Sicamous notwithstanding the order. Could not say
that Mr. Robitelle wa, not in hi,
office a, I did not try hi, door. The
waiting room wa, dark. Was not particularly anxious to find out about
the train as I did not have to enquire
about her.
To Mr. Lewis-Told the fireman I
did not register as the book was not
out, ...
■ TeSapt. kilpatrick—Received the
order at the time stated thereon.
Have' been railroading since 1898,
Have often got orders timed ahead.
Supt. Kilpatrick—A nun who puts
out an order ahead of time should not
be there as time is the essence of railroading.
To Supt. Kilpatrick—Slowed at
bridge, then across the bridge where
the wreck wa,, then at switch at
Gumbo cuts, at curve this side Bowie,
curve west of Craigellachie, and
Sicamous drawbridge. Lost no time
slowing at Columbia bridge, a minute
at next point, another minute at
(iiimho switch, did not lose anytime
at Craigellachie or Bowie, and three
minute, at Sicamous drawbridge. Am
aware there are other slow orders between Revelstoke and Sicamous.
Supt. Kilpatrick herewith read
schedule showing slow orders.
Supt. Kilpatrick—Why didn't you
observe these slow orders ?
Witness—I did observe them. Ran
fatter tome places than others. Ran
fastest from Downie to Craigellachie
and from Bowie to Sicamous drawbridge. Consider highest speed attained between 45 and 50 miles an
hour.   Don't think I ran over 50
Supt. Kilpatrick—You ran 45 miles
iu an hour and five minutes. You
have accounted for five minutes. Now
how could you slow down at other
points to ten miles an hour without
losing time ?
Witness—You certainly do lose
time, a little, it doesn't amount to
very much.
The Coroner—Then be had to make
it up at other points.
Supt. Kilpatrick—That is what
I contend as showing he ran at an
excessive rate of speed.
Supt. Kilpatrick—What time did it
take you from Sicamous to Salmon
Arm? There are some slow orders
there. You run l'.l miles there iu 35
minutes, Don't you consider that too
fast?
Witness—No.
Supt. Kilpatrick—From Salmon
Arm to Carlin, about 11 miles, we
have two statements you made it in
15 minutes.
Witness—1 consider it took 2l) minutes uml don't consider that time ton
fast.
Supt. Kilpatrick—You say you saw
like a dicker from n stove in the Sicu-
moils olliee, .Now there is no stove
there bo it must have been a lamp,
liy what ruled', you claim it wus not
necessary to get a clearance at Sicu-
iiiiiii.-'.'
Witness—Why do they go past that
point without a olearancel
Supt. Kilpatrick—Not th.it 1 know
oil'.
Witness—Well they ilu.
Supt. Kilpatrlok—Why did you not
register there?
The Coroner—He has answered that
—because he could not find the
register.
Supt. Kilpatrick—Then why did
you leave there without authority?
Witness—The signal was clear.
Supt. Kilpatrlok—You said you left
bore expecting to find that train anywhere, At what rate of speed did you
puss the sidings'.'
Witness—About  eight or ten miles
an hour. The train ahead of me wus
making in average run.
Supt, Kilpatrlok—Do you consider
they proteoted thomselvoi sufficiently?
Willie-—|  don't think they were
protecting themselves. The rules say
a man should be on the end car of the
train on ascending grade, and if they
had he would have teen the head light
ol my engine. Would con.ider a, run
of 3J hours to Kamloops >afe with
that engine.
To Mr. Brigg,—The wording of the
clearance influenced be in going on
from Sicamous.
The Coroner—It is only when there,
is trouble your're held up for fast
running on railways?
Witness—Ye,.
Mr. Lewi,—How could they protect
their train against you coming behind them.
Witne,,—By fusees.
T. W. rUYLOR,
night operator in despatcher', office
said: I made out the order, produced.
Mr. Robitelle did not tell me a thing
about the train and heard nothing
about it till after the accident.
The Coroner—There are two diametrically opposed itatement,.
Witness—At same time Mr. Robit-
telle reported for first time to my
knowledge, arrival and departure of
light engine.
The Coroner—That is after the wa,
wrecked.
Witness—Yes. Despatcher Sutherland was in the office.
GOBDON BDTHEBUND
said—Mr. Robitelle reported arrival of
Anderson's extra west ten minutes
after engineer left office. Told
operator at Sicamous he would hot be
required till 24 o'clock. Had instructions to lay off operators on Sundays
when not required. The register at
Sicamous was the only source of information available to Engineer
Harriett as to Anderson', extra,
Engineer should not pass that station
without registering. Operators are
entitled to overtime on Sundays.
Coroner—If he could not find the
register should he take a axe.
Witness—Yes he must not pass the
station without registering.
The Coroner—He might get fired if
he took an axe to get it.
Witness—He must get it. There
can be no excuse for not signing the
register. Harriett's time was fast
between Revelstoke and Sicamous.
The Coroner—Then why could you
not stop a fast train ?
Witness—Because we had no recoid
of it. Never asked Harriett if he
could get over in four hours. Remarked to him "Suppose you'll go
over in about four hours and a half."
That would bo a safe run. Considered
Harriett's run from Salmon Arm
to Carlin too fast, especially knowing
the train was ahead.
To Supt. Kilpatrick—The time allowed fust passenger trains is about
5 hours and 25 minutes.
To Supt. Kilpatrick—Instructions
were given to check up fast trains. At
the rste Harriette was making it
would take him 3 hours and 25
minutes to get to Kamloops. He
must have known he was getting close
to that train. Considered rule 98
g. should be enforced.
JAMES   SMITH,
fireman on light engine, said the engineer went in to register at Sicamous,
Came buck and suid there was no one
on duty, everything dark, nnd no book
there. Saw him go into station.
Knew there wus a train ahead, but
took no precautions as wus busy tiring,
Looked out whenever' I hud a chance.
Was on sent once going round curve
where accident happened and could
see train length ahead. Saw rod
lights of oaboose live cur lengths ahead
before striking. Did not expect to see
train this side of Notch Hill. Six to
seven hours is average running time.
Saw no lights in statioi at Sicamous,
.i. I', loitiii;, i'. E,,
proved plan ol truck (produced) where
ICOident occurred.
,!.  Mi'l'lllillTOi:
did not think rule 08 applied,
To" Mr, Sturdy—WaB through eating
nt time of accident.
To Mr. Lewis—Mr. Andci',011 wus on
look-out it time of accident,
IV.  lil.SIIN.
trainmaster, said rules 83, Kiln, 88b,
required a conductor or engineer to
register uud check register at such a
place us Siciiiiiuiis and he could not
proceed otherwise.
The Coroner—Will you undertake
to establish that  rule OSg should not
be enforced on Bitch grade, as Notch
Hill?
Witness—The rule dots not apply
to a en Is iosc.
II. 1 .   IIAIllil.lt,
chief despatchor, stated ho bud never
heard of n ense where the register was
not available.
The coroner  summed  up Ihe case
and said there had been false evidence
by somebody. He expressed the opinion that blame was attachable all
round. ,
Alter » retirement of two and a
half hours the jury brought in the
following verdict:
"We, the undersigned jurymen,
having considered the detail, of the
rear-end collision at Carlin siding,
between Anderson's extra west, engine
1003, and extra engine 223, on Jan.
15th, 1906, at 24:05k., in whioh
Brakeman George D. Berger wa,
killed, state that this accident was
caused primarily by Engineer Harriett's engine 223 running into tbe
caboose of train.
"We find that censure is due to the
undermentioned parties connected
with the movements ol these two
trains:—(1) Conductor Lee Anderson and Brakeman Netherton for not
being in cupola and on top of train
respectively.
"(2) Engineer Harriett and Fireman
Smith for not booking at Sicamous
station in accordance with the rule
book.
" (3) Operator Robitelle for taking
the responsibility of booking Conductor Anderson.
"We recommend that at registering
points a telegraph operator should
always be on duty. We regret there
is such a general misunderstanding
amongst the trainmen as to the correct interpretations of several of the
rules which has been the fundamental
cause of the accident,"

LUMBERING
A   Prairie   Protest   Against
Increased Prices.
(Caleiiry Hernia.)
" The telegraphic reports of the
meeting of the Lumbermen's association at Nelson assert that the
members united in a declaration
"that the increased demand for
lumber on the prairies warrants
an increase in the price of that
commodity." If that theory is put
into practice it is certain to provoke trouble.
i " There never was a time in the
history of the west when cheap
lumber was so necessary as today.
There is a very general feeling that
prices today for ordinary building
material are outrageously high.
There is a feeling that this is the
. result of the deliberate acts of lumber producers associations and not
'the legitimate consequences of
commercial conditions.
" With the impetus the prairie
provinces are receiving from the
inrush of new settlers the whole
west should expand substantially,
If that impetus is met with advances in prices of all building
materials the progress of the country will be cheeked.
"The theory upon which our
native industries are protected by
a reasonable tariff is fair and right
in accord with the policy of successful governments of the day, situated as Canada is, but the breaking
point is 11 dangerous line to approach. When the government
was requested by lumbermen
through the Calgary Board of
Trade a year ago to increase the
duty on rough lumber to keep out
American importations, the mill
linn offered lo guarantee tbe public
that no further advance in this
quality of lumber would be made
ii this concession was granted. The
proposition seemed fair, but the
inevitable conclusion was that this
guarantee could not be enforced by
tin- manufacturers unless some
organisation in the nature oi a
combine was in existence.
" The tariff certainly imposes nn
obligation upun ihe industries
protected not to curry tin- price of
those articles lo excessive degrees
In other words, tin1 policy oi charg
ing "nil ilu- traffic will bear" will
In- resented Ly '.he public us outrageous extortion.
" Thi.- i- nn era of high prici
The prosperity of the great  west
naturally  provokes   high   prices,
but when the Xelson meeting sug-
l-' -'- that tin-  increasing di m ■
fi • lumber would permit even fur-

RAILWAY PROSPECTS.
Busy Season Ahead for C.P.R.
W. Whytej of the C. P. R. says i
"Next summer will be an active
•one throughout the western country, The C. P. R. will build at
least 250 miles of road. Some of
it will be for new branches and
eome on extensions already under
construction. Settlers are pushing
farther and farther back into the
new country, and the company's
policy iB to open up this territory
-wherever the outlook for the future
renders it advisable, and to act as
pioneers wherever possible.
GangB of men are even now
working on the construction of
double tracks at various points between Winnipeg and Fort William.
About fifteen hundred men are
there altogether, and by the time
the crop of 1906 is reedy to move
we expect to have at least a hundred miles of double track ready.
Even that much would greatly
assist in moving the crop, particularly if the yield is aB heavy as it
was last season.
Mr. Whyte said that this winter
in the west had been favorable for
handling traffic. To date forty-
eight million bushels of wheat had
been moved eastward, but there
were still about six million bushels
in western elevatorB.

YORK COUNTY LOAN
Frightful   Condition   of  the
Business.
The commissioner appointed to
investigate York County Loan affairs reports: "I find that no
accounts have been kept with the
installment shareholders, nor is
there in possession of the company
any means of determining the
amount of its liability to them,
except an undigested mass of reports from agents of the company
The installment share account was
grossly incorrect, the shortage ap
pearing to be at least a million
dollars, and the published statements issued by the company were
increasingly untrue each year, accompanied by similarly false returns to the Government. Some
eight millions of dollars have been
collected, out of which more than
five million dollars have been paid
out preferentially to withdrawing
shareholders.

Financial Statement for the Year 1905
NEW PATENTS
J. McMiihon was in the city this
week from Enderby with Bam pies
of valuable now inventions ho has
brought out and which ought to
find a ready market. Mr. McMiihon has proved an inventive
genius ami is in negotiation with
prospective buyers to take up and
manufacture his inventions in
Canada, Britain and the States.
One of the inventions iB a tool
which will prove immensely valuable to prospectors iinil woodsmen.
It consists of a combined pick,
hammer, adze, mattock and nxe,
each piece being removable and
easily liitled with n set screw into
the head nf the Implement, Mr.
MoMahon is getting out a smaller
pattern which will prove especially
serviceable lo tourists.
Another of Mr. MoMahon's inventions is an adjustable combination wrench which is destined to
entirely replace the screw-wrench,
being niiieh more easily and quickly adjusted to any Bine of nut by a
simple movement of the lingers of
one hand,
The oilier invention which Mr.
McMahdii has brought out is a de-
vico for setting planer knives, so as
to onsure them lining set oven and
quickly. This device should come
into great demand in planing mills.
Mr. MoMahon intends going to
Vancouver to arrange for the manufacture of these inventions anil
placing thom on the market. He
took a lot of orders in Huvclstoke.

FIRST ALASKA GOLD.
Gold was first discovered in Alaska
on the Anauk river, 11 tributary of the
Kuskowim river, which joins the
latter stream about twenty-live miles
below the trading post of Kalamakoff-
sky.
In 1832 the headquarters of the
Ruasian American Trading Company
were at Sitka and supplies were trims-
ported from there to Lukeen's Fort
by way of Nushngak river, Tic-chic
river and lake and down the Aniiiik
river and thence up stream twenty-
five miles to the fort. In 1837 the
yearly supplies were sent by way of
the mouth of the Duskowim river and
the old way abandoned na a summer
route and used only lor the purpose
of sending out the niailB during the
winter by dog teams. It was the only
winter route the Russians ever used
from any point on the Yukon to the
outside (Sitka), and was only abandoned Ior the purpose alter they left
the country.
It was while on one of these trips in
18112 that the Russians discovered
gold on the Anauk. and it, is known
today as the Yellow River of the Russians, It is not known whether they
ever attempted milling on any largo
scale or whether they found gold in
paying quantities, but it is thought to
lie the lirst time oil record of gold
being found in that country.
