Warm   weather    everywhere  throughout  Lhe north is causing (,vhe  water" to     run.   Sluicing   began on  Klondike creeks this week, and rockers arc going     full*,blast everywhere.  Within  three    weeks sluicing  will be  in  full swing    on every creek.   It is  ���������estimated   tha.t the Klondike  proper  will produce from the winter dumps  now     ready  to    wash aiul  from tlie  . dirt to he taken out during the summer   from   $8,000,000   to  $10,000,000.  This means from creeks within a radius of fifty miles of Dawson. Some  of Lhe biggest hydraulic and dredging  plants in the world arc starting this  season and     will help to hold up the  output.   The     latest Tanana advices  place the    yield   from that camp by  the close of    the present summer for  the year at     $r>,00(),000.   The Koyu-  Itujlf yield is     estimated at $140,000.  AtUn's output     will equal Koydkuk.  .Rampart     may    double thc Koyukuk  yield.

Fairbanks' estimated spring clean-up  from the most,conservative and iclia,  hie   sources will be between $5,000,-  000, and ������,000,000. from winter dumps  alone.   Another     two millions and a,  half, or perhaps   three millions  will  be taken out during the summer.   In  another w.ee.i sluicing will be in full  blast.   Considerable      water    is  now  running along     the creeks and sluicing began   on a,    small scale several  days ago on.CIcary, Pedro a������d Fairbanks creeks.   One hundred and seventeen steam  hoists  have been     at  work all winter  taking out pay dirt  besides innumerable hand windlasses.  'I he value of the winter dumps     has  been carefully  estimated and   should  the amount fail short,  it will  be for  the lack of water.   For several weeks  operators  have  been  building    flumes  and thawing dumps so as to    catch  all of the water running.   Eight hundred thousand feet "of lumber was used  for flumes this spring, as against  one hundred thousand feet used    last  year.   Premiums  are being paid    for  additional     machinery  to he    landed  here on the. first  boats,' as  there   is  not a sin gh> steam hoist left and there  is a famine in many kinds of machinery .needed,      which   will keep     back  work until a new supply arrives.
