j it ie Cape Nome gold region, which has   m>ss of th(, underlying gravel is found
J just been received here:
���^ .In September, 18.IS, th ree prospect
orB skirted the northern coast of Retiring Sea, to investigate a rumor of
the occurrence of gold in that region.
As they made their way westward in
their   small   sailing   craft,    they saw
���;-
fit
nothing but a barren const, with now
and then a small group of native tents
ob- the beach and an Eskimo sod
house. For 200 miles there was not a
���white settlement of any description.
Theso prospectors landed at the
mouth of a large stream whicli they
called "Snake Elver, ' and a few days
later discovered a coarse gold placer
on what they termed "Anvil creek.''
The find made all three of them
. millionaires,.and .the region has be-
come famous the world over. Today
tbis same 100 miles of bleak coast is
dotted with prospectors' tents and
cabins, and where these pioneers
landed, lese than three years ago,
there now stands a eity of from live
to six thousand inhabitants.
There is a railway connecting Anvil
creek with the coast; a cable bus been
laid to St. Michaels; telephone wires
bave been strung; newspapers and
banks have been established,and commodious hotels and stores have already been built where so recently
the Eskimo lived in solitude.
Nome lies ou the southern const of
Seward peninsula, that great mass of
land which, stretching out from the
northwestern part of the American
continent, extends westward to within sixty miles of the Siberian coast.
The topography of the peninsula is
essentially a rolling upland, in which
broad valleys have been cut by tho
larger streams. This upland is diversified by several ranges. The most
important of these are the Kigluaik
mountains which are about thirty
miles inland and whose highest peaks
reach elevations of 4,500 feet. The
coast line shows bold bluffs rising directly from the water, separated by
mall beaches and samll coastal plains.
���';'���'. The traveler on obtaining his first
view of tbe Nome coast, sees a barren, moss-covered plain stretching inland and gradually merging witli tlie
lower slopes of the mountains. Not u
bush nor a tree can be seen. The aspect of the country is bleak and forbidding.
In 1898.the Seward   peninsula   produced only a few thousand   dollars in
gold.    Iu   1899   the   production    was
���    about 83,000,000, and in   1000_ is   was
' ' close to 85,000,000.
__e distribution of the deposits, as
far as developed, fall into two
zones, of which the placersj of the
Nome region proper and of the Fish
river basin form the southern zone,
while the Blues'one, Aginpub and
Kugruk form the northern belt.
This zonal arrangement is   more   or
It s the result of the geological structure.
The gold has been derived  from the
^erosion  of   a   rook  series,   made   up
of altered limestone,  mica-schist  and
U quartz schists. In this series are found
loany lntrusives which may be group-
'&r.'_d together as greenstones. The rocks
:';%re generally found lying almost horizontal, but in the Kiguaik mountains
a great uplift  has occurred, and   the
heart of the range  is made up of older sedimentary rocks with large masses   of   lnstruslve     gra-ites.    On   the
flanks of this uplift   the gold-bearing
Beries   dips   away   to   the north   and
south.    The result   of   this  structure
is two belts of gold-bearing rocks,Sep
arated   by an older series,   which,   as
far aa known, is-t. rwn.  .Some stream
tin has been found associated with thc
.   gold   in   the   placers  of the York region.
The facts thus far determined ln re-^
I to carry sufficient gold io warrant
'sluicing it. The richest gravel is as
u ual on the bed-rock, and varies in
depth from one to three feet. On
muny of the streams terraces are
found which carry gold, but these
have received but little attention.
Some high terraces, several hundred
feet above the present stream beds,
were delevoped to n limited degree
during the past season. So rich are
some of those near Nome that water
was carried to them from a distance
of two miles nl a cost of 82.50 a barrel, and the working was profitable.
Another class of deposits which
were developed to a limited degree
are the gravels of the const plain, usually called "tundra diggings,"
These aro usually found on clay beds
which occur as layers in the sand and
gravel. While they are not as rich as
the creek diggings, yet considerable
gold has been taken from them. So
far they have been worked chiefly
along small streams which How across
the tundra,where some secondary concentration has probably taken place.
The problem of mining those gravels
on a large scale is one that deserves
earnest consideration by experienced
men. The most serious drawbacks to
the use of machinery is tho fact that
below the moss the ground is nearly
everywhere perpetually frozen.
The host known type of deposit is
the beach placer, and the gold founo
in these, is coarser than that of most
similar occurrences. A rough determination showed that the Nome
bench gold whioh is saved would run
about suvonty-five colors to a cent,
and that of Topeock, fifty miles east
of Nome, about twenty to the cent.
The Oregon beach runs from 120 to
COO, nrd the Snake river, Idaho, gold
D00 to 1,000 colors to the cent. At the
mouth of Daniels creek, near Top-
cock, some 400 yards of the beach
yielded about three-quarters of a million of gold, taken out in about two
months, l'robably about a million
dollars have been taken from the
Nome beach in two seasons. The gold
is concentrated on a clay bed which
i�� from two to six feet below the surface. It had its origin in the gravels
of the costal plain which have been
eaten away by wave action. Thc
grains have worked their way down
in the level sand until they reached
the impervious clay layer, and have
thus been concentrated.
The beach placers were discovered
in August, 1890, and as soon as the
news became disseminated a perfect
frenzy seized the people of Nome.
Nearly the entire population went to
worn with shovel and rocker, and as
the authorities prohibited the staking
of claims all had an equal chance.
In 11100 thousands of men went to
Nome witli the intention of working
on the beach, but the richest part bad
been gutted. As the work was done
with crude appliances nearly all the
fine gold was lost. The discovery at
Topeock was mado in tbe spring of
1900, and a small strip of the beach
was pretty well worked over during
the course of the early summer
months.
For many years gold has been
known to occur in the Golofnin bay region of the peninsula. It Is said that
one of thc Western Union telegraph
exploring expiditions found colors on
the Niukluk river in 18U5. The first
discovery of importance was on Ophir
creek in the spring of 1898, which antedated by some months the Anvil
creek find.
In WOO gold was reported from Solomon river, east of Nome, and from
Koksuktaparga, a tributary of the
Niukluk.    In   tho   fall   of   18119   gold

JThe Head of the Canadian
Section With Party In

The Court Is Asked to De
clare the Contracts
Void.
Continued on Third  Page.
(SPECIAI. TO THE MINI'.-..)
Winnipeg, May 23.���Another chapter in Manitoba's railway fight was
begun today when suit was entered in
tho Manitoba court, of King's bench
against the Manitoba government,
the Canadian Northern railway and
the Northern Pacific railway, the object of which is to get the court to
declare the contracts void and to prohibit, the government of Manitoba
from carrying out the transfer of the
Northern Pacific line and retraining
Premier Roblin from taking over or
receiving the Northern Pacific line.
The action is filed by Mayor Arbuth-
not, Alox. Macdonald aud others.
The statement of claim sets forth that
the railways are nearly all Dominion
railways, subject only to Dominion
legislation, and that tbey connect this
province with the United States, a
foreign country. It also sets forth
that these various systems were and
are operated by the Northern Pacific
company,and for all these reasons the
province had no power to legislate in
regard to them.
It is also claimed that the proposed
railway between Winnipeg and Port
Arthur is only paitially owned by the
Canadian Northern railway company
und that a certain,portion of the road
is in Minnesota, a foreign country,
not subject to the laws of Manitoba
and the Dominion.
The claim is also made that the Canadian Northern has not yet secured
any power over thc line in Minnesota
or over the bridge spanning the
Rainy river, and that the Dominion
parliament has no power to confirm
any agreement respecting these wonts
in a foreign country.
Before Snow Files the Old
Boundary Line Will Be
Resurveyed.
(SPECIAI. TO THE MINER.)
Vancouver, B.C., May 23.���Mr. McArthur, head of the Canadian section
of the joint international re-survey of
the boundary line from the coast to
the summit of the Rockies through
Tobacco plains, Midway and north of
Mount Haker, is in tbe city with a
party of 20. McArthur is accompanied by Prof. Macowan, who will compile a natural history report for thc
government. The work will take two
years. But before the snow flies
the old boundary line will be resurveyed sufficiently to settle any disputes of an i international character.
Mr. McArthur says serious mistakes
wore made by contending parties taking trial lines found to be erroneous,
but not removed by the joint survey
commissions uf 1859, 1800 and 1801, as
the true boundary line, and it is nol
known yet .which Ib the trial line and
which is the true line.

effort was made to bring In the evidence of the manager of the Royal
Bank of Canada. Geo. Kydd. This.
however, was disallowed by tlie
judge. Mr. Justice Drake aftei summing up the case rendered his decision in favor of the plaintiff, granting
him a commission of ten per cent.
amounting to the sum of $1,11011, on
the California and iioslon, and dis-
missing the case against the Dead-
wood as not established.
At the conclusion of the above the
Cordingly insurance cases were dealt
with. The one against tlie Dniofl Assurance company was dismissed with
costs, while the other two were adjourned until the next assize ecoiirt,
which will be held in the fall.

(SPECIAI, TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, B. C, May 23.���Maltby
and Elder lirooks.of thc Zionites, were
dismissed by Judge Martin this afternoon on a charge of manslaughter
arising out of the failure of the prisoners to summon a doctor when Malt-
by's child was dying of diphtheria.
Judge Martin in addressing Maltby
Bald tout no religious views could relieve him from his legal responsibility, and that had he admitted that he
knew the child was dying he would
have dealt severely with bim. The
faut that he swore that the child was
not dying relieved him from that. At
the time he reminded him that the
crown was handicapped by tbe fact
that none but Zionites were present
when the child passed away, and
therefore it was difficult to get at' the'
facts, and expressed the hope that it
would be a warning to him. Regarding Brooks he said that his conduct
Was inexpressibly vile and appalling-,
but while horrified at him aB a father, ho was compelled as a judge to release him. A man who saw another
drowned was under no legal obliga-
tin to rescue him, and he regarded
Brooks as In that class.

(SPECIAL. TO THE MINER.)
Vancouver, B. C, May 23.���David
llealey, United States immigration
commissioner,said today that he knew
large numbers of Chinamen were
walking over to the states from British Columbia, but he was powerless to
stop them. He said the Chinese were
simply using Canada as a gateway.
There wore four hundred miles of unguarded territory between the coast
and Rykerts, Ii. C, and he did not
pretend to be able to watch a boundary that it would take an army of
officials to look after. Mr. llealey
stated that he would personally lay
the matter before the department and
he was certain congress would act in
the matter next sessiou. Mr. Healey
said it looked at present as if Canada

POLICE COURT NEWS.
Woman Arrested For Theft���More
Gambling Cases.
It is not often thnt the Nelson police magistrate has the i-csponsiiblity
of administering Canadian law to tbe
fair sex of the city, as they are invariably more law abiding citizens
than those of the sterner sex. Hut
yesterday Belva McKinley was ar-
raigned before Magistrate Crease on
the oha-go of stealing certain articlis
of wearing apparel troth Mrs. Knapp.
on Victoria street. Tha evidence
went to show that the accused had
gone to the houso of the plaintiff,
ostensibly for tbo object of trying tn
rent her house. As the plaintiff is
leaving the city she intimated her
unwillingness to rent ns she intended
to sell. On Tuesday afternoon the
accused visited the plaintiff's liouse.
and began to arrange a sale of thc
place. In the interval Mrs. Knapp
went over to tbe post office and the
following evening, as she went to put
on her dress, she noticed that two
valuable Bkirts she had owned were
missing. Recollecting that no one
else had been in the house, the accused was at once charged with tlie
theft. Information was at once laid
against her and a warrant issued for
her arrest, when Chief of Police
Jarvis arrested her. A messenger
swore to having received the skirts
from the accused and delivered them
for her at another place. Her defense was that she had been bargaining with Mrs Knapp for the stuff.
The magistrate, however, regarded
the story as savoring too much of the
sea, and issued an order whereby she
will be provided with both clothes
and occupation for the next six
months. There were three other
cases before the magistrate, one case
of an ordinaiy 'hunk, who was
mulcted for the usual fine of 85 and
costs. The other wns a charge of
gambling against two gentlemen in
too great a hurry to get rich. One
of the individuals put in an appearance and was 825 poorer on his departure. The other individual has
evidently made his pile nnd hns suddenly decided to embark upon an extended trip, and in the hurry cf his
departure forgot to leave   his address.

Most of the up-country and Coast
saw-loggeis are complaining of the
legislation of the recent session nffeet-
ing the lumber industry. The new
law was passed during the closing
hours of the sessiin, and without proper consi lerat'on of its import by the
large number of members who are
always too ready to take opinions on
trust. To shut off without a day'B
notice the largo trade in the export
of cedar logs is working great hardship. The men say that if a few
months' grace had been given, allowing the camp managers to dispose of
the product on hand and to make
other arrangements that would adapt
themselves to the new conditions,
their grievance would be greatly moderated. And in this it will hardly bo
said that they are taking an unreasonable view of it. A session is very
rare that haB not a too generous share

result will be to raise the unit of representation in Parliament, and correspondingly to reduce the number of
representatives from the other Provinces. Instead, therefore, of Hritish
Columbia being entitled to two or
three additional members, as had
been hoped and expected as a result of
the census, it may be that for the
next ten years we shall have to content ourselves with the present number.
There was a good deal of surprise,
among mei.bers and the public generally, when it was announced that the
Crows Nest Southern Ilill would be
dropped. It had passed through the
committee stage nnd stood for a third
reading, which would have been accorded it with little further opposition. The only explanation of this
unexpected course that has been made
public is that the promoters of the
Bill considered the conditions too
stringent, and that they would prefer
to go on with the construction of their
railway under the Provincial charter.
Pernaps if this had been anticipated,
the leader of the Opposition at Victoria would have served notice on the
Government that tbe Hill of incorporation should not be allowed to pass.
The most surprising nud unheard of
tbings may be looked for from a Legislature that is controlled by the lead
er of an insignificant Opposition.

MR. SYDNEY H. MORSE
Kindly assisted by Mrs. R.   W.   Hannington and Mr. 11. Harris
A reason advanced in support of the
increased Indemnity to members at
Ottawa was that it was necessary if
the standard of representation was to
be maintained. This is an admission
that members are "after the stuff."
The pretence of patriotism Is intended
only for campaign use. This was
well known regarding the representatives who congregate at Victoria, but
it was only suspected of those at Ottawa.
Mr. Clarke Wallace thinks that
there are Judges enough in Hritish Columbia, considering the population,
and iherefore opposed the provision
for the new County Court Judge at
Vancouver. There are other things
than population that have to be considered, and one of these is area. This
Province is a very large one, and if
there is to be proper administration
of justice the territory must be (ide-
quately covered.

CAPE NOME GOLD FIELDS
Continued from First Page.
was found on Cripple river, west of
Nome, and near York, which lies
nenr the western extremity of the peninsula. In 1000 the most important
discoveries were those belonging to
the northern belt of placer deposits.
This included the Kugruk district, lying about fifty miles northeast of
Nome and the 111uestonodistrict, some
twenty miles south of Port Clarence.
As the development, in these two districts only began late in the summer,
comparatively little gold was taken
out, but both are very promiling.
Their total production during the season of l'JOl) is probably in the neighborhood of $100,000.
As would be expected in a new le-
gion, the methods of mining and separation are crude and wasteful. Except in the older creeks, the rocker
and long torn still hold sway, and
even when sluices are used they aie
often of the most primitive description. In the vicinity of Nome more
economical mining methods arc being
introduced, and some largo enterprises bave been inaugurated. During
the past -season tlie cost ol labor averaged about 85 a day, with board, the
latter being figured at from t}2   to  83,
The steamers charged 840 a ton for
freight delivered on the beach. Tho
cost of coal varied between _;5 and
875 aton.
Port Clarence furnishes some shelter for vessels. Teller and Bering will
become the distributing points for tlie
new districts of the Kugruk and lllue-
��� atone, as river steamers can reach a
point within 25 miles of tho former,
Golofnin bay is the port for the Ophii
creek region, but it is exposed to
southerly storms. Steamers can ascend
the Fish river some twenty miles to a
point about Iblty-Bvc miles below
_ouni.il City, which is the central
camp of the Ophir creek region.
This eastern part of tho peninsula is
timbered with spruce.
The "boom" in this region is probably over. It has passed through the
same cycle as have the Klondike and
every other placer mining camp of the
West. The time has now come for experienced men who have capital to
invest or brain power and energy to
expend to develop the abundant resources on an economical basis.

THE CITY
HOME   ON A VISIT���
Oco. N. (iunn, the piper, is in town
on a two weeks' visit to his family.
Since Si. Andrew's Day he has been
working on tbe development of the
Falter group on White Fish creek,
tributary to St. Marys river, East
Kootenay, on which he, Mr. Mackay
and others are interested. They have
four men working on the property and
have struck ore in several places, and
aie ready to ship when transportation facilities make it possible to
do so.
SMELTER RUMORS���
Rumors are alloat tbat the North
Star Mining company have bought
the townsite of Maryville on the
Main river, an.t that they have also
bought the Sullivan mine. Rumors
are also aollat regarding a project to
build a smelter at Maryville which
would be a good site, as there is lots
of water power at that point. A smelter would be of immense benefit at
that point, inasmuch as it would benefit tbe whole country from the Summit, downwards. Many mining properties which are at the present time
simply unworkable would develop
large mining industries and build up
a smelter industry. In addition to
Mi is a smelter being built at that
point would mean better transportation facilities than they are at present enjoying. Under existing conditions it colts now from two and a
half to four cents per pound for shipping supplies,which makes it impossible to ship ore at such a figure. There
was not nearly enough money provided by tbe provincial government for
providing trails and bridges and the
cost of providing such by the individual prospectors makes mining unnecessarily expensive.
A LUCKY FIND.
What proved to bo a more profitable find than gold happened tho other day to a traveller from San Francisco, while at lunch in one of the
leading restaurants m Nelson. Ue
ordered a portion of Punipkin pie,
when to his astonishment his appe-
titlo, whioh he had lost fifteen years
ago in Arizona, suddenly returned to
him, with renewed vigor. The pie
had a very solid texture and a rich
uiellow llavor. The cook informs us
that it was made from "The Morse
Pumpkin Flour." None other just as
good.    Insist on "Tbe Morse Brand;"
SAVES TWO FROM DEATH.
"Our little daughter had an almost
fatal attack of whooping cough and
bronchitis," writes Mrs. W. K. Havi-
land, of Armonk, N. Y., "but, when
all other remedies failed, we saved
her life with Dr. King's New Discovery. Our neice, who had Consumption in an advanced stage, also used
this wonderful medicine aud today she
is perfectly well. " Desperate throat
and lung diseases yield to Dr. King's

The lake is now only eighteen
inches below the high water mark of

rate of about six inches per day, and

A new freight service came into

between Nelson and Sandon. The

A new doo>- is being placed in the

the front hall. The cutting through of
this door at the rear, under the

the offices practically separate.
TWO HOURS  LATE���
The Crow's Nest bo it was two
hours late yesterday.owing to a delay
oi the Crow's Nest train, which was
caused at Medicine Hat, where the
Crow's Nest road connects with tbe
main line. An unusually large traffic
ln the matter of freight created the
necessity of dividing the train on one
of the sections and making two trips,
hence the delay.

ILLEGAL BIKERS���
In moat of the Canadian cities of
the size of Nelson, as well as in this
oity, bicycling on the sidewalk is a
violation of the law, but last evening
immediately after supper a number
of Nelson uitizens of both sexes, ignorant or disreganlful of tho laws and
customs regulating tbis matter, were
taking exercise on their wheels by
riding up and down the sidewalks, to
the risk of their own necks and the
anatomy of pedestrians.
WOULDN'T SELL IT
Her Pare and Vlenr Couiplrxlo- Nol For
Hole.
A Cornell girl waa put on a Grape-
Nuts diet and discovered some facts.
She says; "While a student at Cornell, I suffered from improper diet.
The banquets and other social functions���with their nch refreshments���
served to completely upset a stomach
already weak from rich pastry, highly seasoned meats, aud confections
furnished by loving parents   ai home.
I became iiritable, nervous, and
my appetite became more and more
capricious. Only lich, highly sea-
Boned food suited me, and this further wrecked my health. I was sallow, having lost my pink and white
eomplexion. I became dull eyed and
dull brained, thc victim of agonizing
dyspepoia and intestinal trouble.
I was finally forced to leave school
and came home an irritable, wretchedly a.ck girl. The plainest food disagreed with me, and I bade fair to
starve to death, when a physician advised my physician to put me on
Grape-Nuts Food diet. To make a
loi.g story short, the transformation
from wretched 111 health to good
health was marvelous. I liked the
new food so well, and it agreed with
my tortured stomach perfectly, regulated my bowels, my headaches left,
and the color of my skin gradually
grew better. In H months found myself rosy, plump, and strong.
I would not sell my clear complexion,bright eyes and general good feeling for the costliest, richust mess of
Delmonlcan pottage.
I returned to Cornell, finished my
course, and can now study, think and
live. The food that enabled me to
regain my health I shall never forget."

KOOTENAY LAKE EXCURSION-
The Canadian Pacific railway announce there is no truth in the report

spectacle of a 5(1 mile race between

MILITIA MATTEKS-
Col. Holmes, D. O. C, examined
tlie local military stores on Wednesday last for the purpo.6 of taking
over the accoutrements from the late
officers, and handing them over to
the new officer, Captain McDonald.
H. F. McLeod has been appointed
first lieutenant, and C. Phillips, second lieutenant. The boys are Shaking hands with themsel tea at the fact
that the colonel has condemned the
unsightly helmets which the local
militia men have been protesting
againBt for a long time past. White
helmets, with dark green pugaree,
and leggings will be adopted instead.
This ib tbe same kind of uniform as
is now worn by men in actual service
at the front in South Africa. He is
also issuing some uniforms to replace
Bome which have been unsuitable on
account of their being too large for
those in the local force. He has also
isBued orders for the replacement of
the rifles, which have been damaged
and are not workable. He visited
the rille range and found everything
satisfactory, and expressed himself as
well pleased with the condition in
which he found everything. The colonel left the same evening for his
home.
