Sixty-eight pas**��ngers on the
North'American Transportation and
Trading company's steanishh) Portland reached Seattle and civilization
on Sunday Inst direct from St.
Michael's, at the mouth of the Yukon river in Alaska. The passengers were mostly miners, and they
came direct from* the Klondike placer mining districts. The men
brought back one and a half tons of
gold in nuggets and dust, which is
worth iu round numbers 11,000,000.
From San Francisco to tbe ftirther-
niost point in Alaska the coast is
wild with the excitement growing
out of the fabulous finds in the Klondike, which is a river emptying into
the Yukon in the Northwest Territories. It is 50 miles by river from
Forty Mile, on the Alaska boundary,
to the scene of the recent finds and
abont 40 miles in a straight line.
Kaslo Items.
E. T. Stephenson has opened in
the drug business in his new store on
the west side of Front 8tt*eet.
Hail Bros, will occupy apartments
next door to Stephenson's drug store
as a barber shop.
A new sidewalk is being laid from
Fourth to Third streets on the west

Dr. Rogers and Dr. Ilartin have
made arrangements, which will soon
is* completed, for a hospital in Kaslo. A building on a most advantageous site, has been secured and is
now being repaired and remodeled
to suit its new purpose, and it is the
intention to have the hospital open
for the treatment of patients by the
middle of August. It is to be a private institution with the usual rate

Jumped Hia Bail.
Ole (Jilt-on, a miner and a native
of Finland, got on a tear and in a
quarrel threatened to shoot the other
fellow. Chief Hamilton came along
and was for arresting him, but Ole
resisted and again brandished his
gun. He was hauled off to the ca-
itoose, however, and the charge of
threatening with a weapon and resisting an officer were preferred
against him. He was rcWaed on
*?50 bail, which he put up himself.
Since then he has not been heard of
and it is believed that he has skipped
thinking tbat he was getting out of
the scrape cheaply at ffiO.
Three More Tunnels.

lie far advanced by October 1st, the
date for the completion of the aerial
tramway and the concentrator contracts.

SANDON. B. 0*. JULY 31, l81��7.
The Paystreak is evidently widening, for more copies of last weeks
issue were purchased fbr the purpose
of mailing to friends in distant -mils
than ever before. We have to modestly acknowledge, however, that
this was not so ranch due to tbe en
largement ot the newspaper trom
eight to twelve pages, as to tbe
amount and character of news that
made this enlargement necessary.
The news printed last week in the
Paystre tK conclusively showed thc
marked progress that Sandon is making in every direction, and this progress is eminently flattering to those
interested in tne growth of the town.
Being men of progressive ideas they
do not believe in permitting their
light to shine under a bushel, therefore they distributed The Paystreak
to inform the rest ofthe country of
Sandon's rapid advancement
More of this was shown in last
weeks issue than in any town in
British Columbia can boast of. To
briefly summarize it, there were the
definite steps being taken to incorporate the city of Sandon, and this, to
outsiders, has a greater significance,
probably, than it has to our own people. It marks the rapid me, step by
step, of a mere prospective mining
camp to tbe dignity of a municipality.
It implies prosperity and stability,
and gives a prestige to the place.
Tbe movement for the formation of
a town band shows that .Sandon people are strongly endowed with tbat
local pride which is among the greatest incentives to the building of large
cities, and also that it has among her
people men of sufficient musical culture to make an organisation that the
town can be proud of.
It is well known that the worker*)
in our mines have $25,000 a week to
spend, and that Sandon ptjssesses all
the attractions oi the old time mining
camp, but last week's isssue also
shows that we have here also those of
refinement and social culture, for tbe
club that has been organised is On a
scale that will place it on a footing
for dignity and comfort with the clubs
of the east. It will be an institution
to which the visiting capital let and
tourist will feel it an honor to be invited.
Pointing in this same direction are
tbe notes on the new residences, with
the whirr of the the lawn mower
beating on the clear summer air.
First came the necessaries of exist
ence, the shelter of a shack; then
the comforts ofa cottage and tho de
cenciesof sejiarate rooms; then the
slumbering instincts of art ant' adornment, the love of luxury of color, and
the gaiety that prosperity brings
were awakened. The cottage verandahs are this summer smiling with
clinging vines and potted plants; the
piano and the guitar, antl the sweetness of woman's voices are heard from
the houses on the hills in the evenings ; the temporary bachelor shack
is giving place to substanti.il homes.
There are other notes ofthe tide of
progress to be found in the increased
water supply, and a triple system ot.
water mains aud hydrants that will
give Sandon one of the best plans ot
tire protection that has ever been de
vised. The electric force is also to
be inci*eased, so that every business
and every home may be supplied
with cheap light
All this progress, too,* has a sub
stantial basis in the development of
Sandons mining industry. Ijtstweek
the Payne mine began its three rail
gravity tramway of 9000 feet long,
and the erection of a large concentrator in the propi-ied city limits.
This is but a brief summary of the
activity of Sandon as recorded in one
week. The paystreak is evidently
widening all the time, and The Paystreak is keeping np with the times
in faithfully recording this march of
progress add pnisperty. Tb stimulate
the interest of our friends st a distance
in the place you have made your
home, is therefore an easy matter.
Mail them your local newspaper
regularly.   ____

expense to give the town an ample

plans are carried into effect It will

flume from Tributary creek which
supplies the electric light plant, and
at such a grade that it will be both a

trees can at anv time interfere with
A number of additional hydrants
are to be erected to give fire piosau
tion ��o the new residences. Tbete
will be one on the Wonderful trail to
protect the house* on that hill; amah
er on the K \ S. track that will
bring the sawmill within range;
another close to theC. P. H. depot
which will iirotet't the Keco ��aieen
trator from below, Black's hood and
buildings In the immediate neighborhood from the back; another on Hlocan street near Ilamttiotid * livery
stable; the next on tlie winter of
I van hoe street and the next near the
power station to cut off a fire coming
op from Mow.
Keco avenue is at present well supplied with hydrants. Should the
present water supply lie found Insufficient or unavailable, hy means of
valves In the power Instse. thetahcr
systems, which will be ri very high
pressure, can be immediately connected and utilized
The next two mouths are going to
be the moat critical far fire of any of
the whole year. What U needed as
an adjunct to this excellent supply of
water b a thc��n��tghly well drilled
volunteer fire brigade, with hose and

In our days culture haa been piropoaed
ss a rat-statute for religion and poetry
offered as a better guide for our lives
than tlie loving word of God.   "Bore
and   more,'"   says    Matthew   Arnold,
"mankind will ditx-over tbat we have
to turn to poetry to interpret life for us,
to console us, to sustain us.   Without
poetry our aicnee will appear incomplete, and most of what uow passes
witlt us for r.'ligit.ii ami philosophy will
be replaced by poetry."   But it were as
well to offer moonlight instead of warm
vtinlight,  for   poetry and culture are
larj-ely a reflection of religion, and bis*
lo-y allows ih  that  they cannot loop
survive ita al>w>tiee.    Men of  a vaguely

Clondyke, or Bust! Is The Cry
as They Rush Northward.
The steamers Portland and Queen
left Seattle last week crowded with gold
seekers bound for the Clondyke; The
George W. Elder leaves to-morrow antl
if more steamers were available they
would have plenty of patients.
The most vigorous plan of the many
proposed for the gleaning of  wealth
from the mines of the Yukon, and the
men who will flock to them, will  lie
carried out by an organization of 20
employees of the Seattle & International  Railroad.   The '20 have combined,
each depositing 9'JOd in a common fund.
Robert Moran has agret*d to build for
$5,000 in fH) days a steel-compartnienl
boat, 00 feet in length by 12 feet beam,
t.i be launched in six inches ot water.
He has guaranteed that the boat will
he in such shape that the 20 men in the
company can easily put the parts together * on   Lake * Linderman.   The
boiler will have a pressure of *_���� pounds
to the square inch, and the engines will
be 40 horse power.  A speed of 10 miles
per hour is guaranteed.   The cargo capacity will be 20 tons,   The 20 railroad
men will pack the steamer across the
summit and set it up on the Upper Yukon.   Ten men will stay bv the steamer, doing a transportation buainess.and
10 will go prospecting.   A sawmill will
also be carried in, and the boat so arranged that it can be beached, and will
furnish power to operate the sawmill.
The company will go prepared to do lo
year's business.
All sorts of advice and information
is heard at every hand upon the subject of an outfit for a prospeetor headed
for the Yukon. While the miners and
prospectors who have been to Alaska
invariably advise intending gold hunters to take an outfit weighing from l,-
500 pounds to s ton and a half, it is a
fact that very few of those who are
going and those who have already departed have taken anywhere near the
amount advised. What the result of
this failure to follow the advice of those
who have had experience in the Yukon
cannot be known until next spring,
when the icy fetters of the frozen Arctic
region release the prisoners of the winter and give their stories to the world.
Many of those who are starting now
are doing to with an entire capital of
not over WOO, whereas the returning
miners advise a man not to think of
going with less than 9*500 to97nO, or
even $1,000. However, conditions of
transportation and supply are changing
almost daily, and the Yukouers are relying on improved facilities which the
old ones knew nothing of. The main
items of a model outfit have been compiled as follows:

A despatch from San Francisco, tlated
Julv 22nd. aaya:
The Alaska Commercial Company's
steamer Bertha arrived from V mi la ska
Bay,'with 500 tons of cotimitralca from
the Appollo mine, at I'nga, and a liar
of bullion from the same source She
brought no gold from the Clondyke
Capt. Hays, speaking of the Clondyke.
������The fact tbat the new gold fields
are 2000 miles from St. Michael**, and
that the difficulties of transportation are
innumerable can not be too forcibly
impressed on intending prospector*.
The new���papcrs would lie responsible
for the loss of many live* and a great
deal of suffering and hardship, if they
did not strongly advise the public that
the river Yukon, now that thc mountain
torrents have ceased running, is verv
low, and much ofthe 500 tons of supplier*
now awaiting tranaportation cannot
possibly lie conveyed to the destination
for some time."
Messrs. Sloas, of the Alaska Comtner
clal Com-iany. are equally frank. < hie
of the firm said:
''What we most fear, is that tin-
excitement will cause many people to
rush northward without properly considering how they are to live through
the winter after they get there. We
have now about 5,000 tons of provisions ���
on the Yukon, and arc sending as large {
additional quantities as posaible, but we
are not able to say . whether the suppl v
will be winal to the demand, nor when
the supplies will reach their destination, with any certainty. The stem
wheel steamer with which the Excelsior
will connect will be the last this season.
It will reach Dawson with a barge in
tow about September 1st, and must Immediately return, as the river usually
freezes over early In Octolier. It is for
this reason principally that we have declined to carry more than the usual
complement of passeiigers on the Kx
relator this trip. We could easily have
constructed accommodations for another hundred, but preferred to utilise the
space for supplies to feed those already
tnere and on their wav."

Hot�� the American Boy's Manager
Waa Misted by a 'Horse".
The American Bay lias passe. I tltr
stage of a prospect ami now rank**
as a mine. Last week it shipped ts
tons of concentrates to the Nnl��lr
Five mill, and today it -.hips 17 tons
of clean steel galena th the smelter.
The concentrates went three to one
and ran 101 ounces silver and Ilii pot
cent, lead, The clean ore runs from
111 ounces to 190 ounces silver and
7f�� per cent. lead.
Not that the above are the ftrst
shipment-** from the property. Last
year there was ahout a car load
shipped, and then skipping to 1H.U
there was in that year nearly WW
!*eceived frt��m shipmeiits. lint today marks the Ix-gimiing of the
property as a regular shipper, there
Mug another carload in sight and
lots more beyond that. There is
also altout l.r> tons of concentrates
ready to go out, hut none will he
sent to the mill until there are .'to to
10 tons ahead.
How this happy state of things
��as arrived at is an illustration of
the mere luck there is in milling development, even when it is lieing
conducted under the watchful eye
ofa manager as cx*a*riciiccd aiid
thoroughly capable as II. Callahan.
< allahau is the vice president of the
company, and wjis working' on the
Noble Vive last year. He sjjamt the
winter with his family at Spokane
and on May If* came to the Anieri*
can Boy as seneraI manager.
Hr started his men to eon tin tie the
Xo. 2 tunnel, in the historv of which
is in la* found the exemplification of
the luck liefore referred to. This
tunnel broke at the grass roots with
good ore*, and run as wide at* two
fret iu some plat*.** bcfi��re a length
of aO feet was reaehed. Then* a
break was encountered, but after a
time ore wait again met with for
about 50 feet, when another break,
or horse, was struck. Mr. Callahan
drove alongside that horse for 125
feet, when the foot wall made a turn
aud a shutr of ore was struck of the
finest grain of su*el galena. From
then; on for another 50 feet there is
nre all the way aud in the face.
But at the point where the shute
was discovered Mr. Callahan started
Ot stope, and in getting to the hanging wall, working back toward the
entrance, found rich ore on It. He
had not supposed there was any ore
on the hanging wall. In fact he had
-tagged all this ore on it for a distance of 125 feet, hrlicving it to he
thr horse. This ore liody is from
eight to eighteen incites wide and is
��.f verv fine grain. Tbe formation,
with the gange between the walls,
is similar to the Payne, but the ore
is much finer in grain. Itast
Wetilnesday, however a little cnlie
galena was struck in the stope where
the body of ore on the hanging wall
was discovered.
There are three, tunnels on the
property that are run ou the Last
Chance ledge, and one, No. 4, which
is a crosscut to intercept thc ledge.
The Noble Five -lodge also runs
through the property, and there is
another ledge between those two,
but Mr. Callahan says: "Wedo not
see any need of further prospecting
when we are getting ore and shipping it,"
Fifteen men are employed at present, all working in two of the tunnels, the No. 2 tunnel, already de-
serMx-d, and the No. 4. There are
three stopes In No, 2 tunnel, and Mr.
Callahan has a very simple and in
gt-uious water blast air pipe running
into the workings, the water from
the mine Mng utilised for the pur-
pose. Opposite this tunnel, across
the gulch, there Is a tunnel on the
Black Hawk elaUn, in about.50 feet
on the lead. On the other claim be
longing to the company, the Random Shot, no work has la-en done,
but assi-sMiieiit work will be done
this fall. Connecting No. 2 with
Xo. *. tunnel there is a winse of 68
feet, and a tunnel of about that
length out of which mixed ore has
been takrn. These workings are
full of water just now.
The No. 1 is a large new tunnel.
t_x�� Ait, which is intended for a
main tunnel f��r all the workings on
the American Boy claim. This is
on the Frank fraction, lower down
and out of the gulch. In the other
tunnels work is impossible after January 1st, when the snow starts to
slide, but they will all !*�� eonneet��*d
with tills tunnel and work can then
In* continued all thr year round.
At its entrance will la* a large ore
house ami blarksmith shop, all
shedded over to protect it from the
snows. This is a CTtstscni ami Is in
���450 fret. Mr. Callahan is driving it
with a don Mr shift, making about a
foot a day. and exfa-cts to strike the
ledge in from HI) to 150 feet, which
will givr a depth from thr surface of
400 feet.
The American Boy was located iu
IJ*>2by Totn MrCnignii. who did hi*
first aWssmriit work that vear.
After this II. Callahan. .1. .1. Md.nl
gau, P. Burns ami others came in as
part owners, and later a company
was incorporated tinder the laws of
tlie state of Washington, the proja*r-
tv comprising the American Boy,
Alack Hawk, Random Shot anil
Frank fraction.
No property in the camp looks
more j-mmising than the American
Boy at tlie prt**sent. In the **opi�� in
No. 2 tunnel the ore is IH Inches
wide at tlie U.ttuiti. and runs from
10 inches to three feet of solid ship
ping ore. Tlieii the property has
such a vast territory to work deer.
It has 8200 fi*et of h*|gr and can get
to a depth from the surface in the
A liter,.-* n Boy of 3000 fret.
Mr. Callahan i*�� feeling good ahout
it. There is au aerial tramwav and
other project* in the air, and he i*
"sighing like a furnace" for a eUa-
tom* smelter to be built at Sandon.
His wife and family come next
week to camp on the mountain until
the novelty wmi** off and then to go
to Cody, where Mr. Callahan will
build a sultat-tiitial resident**-.
