S. P. Panton, of Anaconda, has  gone to Alaska to prove the truth-'  fulness or untruthfulness of a story  told by a French-Canadian prospector who, on his death-bed in Portland, Ore, a few weeks ago, gave  details of a rich gold discovery he  had made near Juneau.  The story goes that this French-  Canadian, while on   a   prospecting  lour-in the golden hued north, wounded a deer and followed the bloody  trail   to   a  cliff of rocks, where he  'ended its sufferings.'    After.gettintr  .some of the meat he built a fire and  cooked it for his dinner, and in doing so he naturally enough disturbed  some   of  the   loose rock.     Heing a  prospector; he made an examination,  and found that much of it contained  gold.   The prospector then relumed  to his permanent camp and the next  day returned and in a short spaceof  time   found  and secured move than  $600 worth of gold.    Below the cliff  he   put   down   a   bole  to bedrock,  which    was   not   deep, and found a  number of nuggets and coarse gold.

New Goldfields Discovered.  Willow Creek, in   Nisultin District,  is Scene of Stampede and  Much   Staking-.  I'Yoin the Whitchorsc Star, June  30th: Considerable excitement was  created in Whitehorse late'yesterday  afternoon by the arrival of the  steamer Quick with a number of  miners from the Nisultin, district,  who brought the news of a fairly  rich discovery of gold on Willow  creek, which empties into Beaver,  and Beaver into the Nisultin river,  which in turn empties into Lake  Teslin, out of which. Hows the Hoo-  tnlinqua river.'  The story of the discover}' and  stampede is as follows: Three miners, Brewer, Anderson and Thompson, had been prospecting for some  time in the Nisultin district, and at  . last struck gold in payingquantities  on Willow creek, where' several  ' nuggets were found, the largest  weighing $7.50.  After thoro.ughly prospecting the  creek and staking claims, the three  men sent word of their discovery  out to Jack Blick, manager for the  N. C. company, which is operating  extensively on Livingstone creek.  The result was a big stampede from  Livingstone and all over the Big  Salmon district to Willow creek.  The steamer Quick was chartered  by Jack Blick, and he and 19 men  in his employ all went up and  staked. The steamer was run up  the" Hootalinqua 90 miles above  Mason's Landing, and there it was  tied up for three days while the officers aiid crew joined in the mad  rush for claims, which they staked  on Willow creek after climbing' over  the Twin creek divide and penetrating the interior a distance of 25  ��� miles. ���  Brewer, one of the discoverers,  was elected camp recorder. He arrived yesterday evening and Recorder R. C. Miller almost collapsed  when Brewer laid before him S3 applications for record and $830 in  currency of the realm to pay for the  same.  There  seems  to be no doubt but  that  the  discovery is  genuine and  ��� 'that another important   placer mining distiicl will be  added to the assets of the south end of the territory.  The depth to bedrock is but 8 feet  and the gold brought in by Brewer  and other members of the party  greatly resembles that taken out on  Eldorado   creek   in   the Klondike  district.  From descriptions given by those  who arrived on the Quick, Willow  creek does not exceed 100 miles  .'- about due east of Whitehorse, but,  owing to the intervening mountainous country, the only, practicable  way to reach it is by Hootalinqua  and up that river to opposite the  place of discovery, which is but 25  miles back over a fairly easy trail in  the interior.  A later report in the same paper  states that the depth to bedrock-is.  less   than 8 feet in many places and  that the pay, which runs from three  to seven cents to the pan, is uniform  on all Ihccreck thus far prospected.  The only drawback reported is that  boulders are both '-plentiful and  huge, causing the ground to be  difficult to work and making it  more of a hydraulic than a pick and  shovel proposition. This last report, however, may have been originated for a purpose,_as it is known  that at least two hydraulic companies, through their representatives,  are already stakeis of large blocks  of claims on Willow creek.  ���While it is too early yet to form  an opinion of the new creek as a  gold producer, the prospects sofar  are certainly very piomising.  Painting of the' Hospital.  In last week's issue we commented on the improved appearance of  the St. Andrew's hospital buildings  since receiving the coat of paint  with which they are decorated, and  as in a former issue we stated that  all.conlributions"to this end would  be acknowledged through these columns, we are now informed that the  material was supplied through the  liberality of Mr. D. H. McDonald,  merchant of town, and the contributions . in labor were two days each  by Messrs. ��� W.-S. Taylor,- Samuel  Wade and Thos. Kirkland. Rev.  E. Turkinglon and Mr. J. D. Lum's-  den also contributed sometime. We  are authorized to entend the hearty  thanks of the board of trustees and  staff of the institution to all contributors and trust that they will  consider themselves amply rewarded  by the improved appearance of the  premises. .    .
