JTo answer has so far been received  from Sir Wilfrid Laurier or Air. Sifton  to the telegrams ordered to be sent to  them on this matter at the last Meeting of the board.  A resolution was passed asking the  gold commissioner to secure a tailing  ground to the French Creek Co.  Alessrs. Brewster, McKecknie and  Abrahamson were appointed a committee to circulate a petition asking  the legislature for legislation to permit the town to discharge its garbage  into the Columbia river.  The communication of the Trout-  Lake board with regard to appropriations was recommended to the favor-  ahle consideration of the gold commissioner.  The board then adjourned.  Ci. IL Suckling, the townsite boom-,  ster, is off for Klondike. '"~  A LETTER FROM SKAGUAY.  Thousands of Men There Already and  Still They Keep Coming.  The following letter has been received  by a resident from R. A. Fraser, who  writes from the Hotel Alondamin, corner of Broadway and Hi-lly, Skaguny.  The heading of the paper calls attention to the electric lighting and steam  heating arrangements of the hotel and  that itis run on the European plan.  Skaooav, Feb., 11th. "89.-".  De.vr Friend Dan:  I expect you think by this time that  I was not going to keep my promise of  wrioing to you, but 1 have been on the  move ever since I left Revelstoke, and  now I tun here but will be in B. C.  about the end of the month. I received  a letter from McKenzie, he says it will  be all right in the spring* This country  is no good. Thousands of men heie  and still coining in. Tliere will Ik* a lot  going Kick In-oke. Wages are., nut as  high ns people think. I "don't believe that lhis place or Dyea is as  tough ns old Yule was in its palmy  days. I came back from Dyea yesterday. I leave hero on the Danube  when she sails. I expect this will go by  Seattle. You can expect to see me  next month some lime. The weathei  is very cold, hut'not much snow in the  town." Give regards to Jim and the  rest.    I will close with regards.  Rout. A. Fraser.  Meeting of Presbytery.  The Presbytery of Kamloops met on  Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock in  Presbyterian church here and continued their sessions till Thursday evening. On Wednesday evening a reception was given to the visitois by the  Ladies j\id society of lhe cliurcli,  which was fairly well attended. The  ministers present were Rey. .T. C. Stewart of Kamloops, G. A. Wilson of  Vernon, T. G. McLeod of Enderbv, JL  C. AlcLellan of Grand Forks, T. Glassford of Trail. A. (Sandier of Rossland.  Robt. Frew of Nelson, P. D. Muir of  Revelstoke and Hardy of Clinton ;  stftelent missionaries, Messrs. Polock  of Salmon Arm, King of Donald, and  Booth of Nakusp.  The congregation of Hevelstoke made  application to the Pre**liylery to go on  the list of augmented congregations.  The application was .-iccepletl and  recommended to (.the augmentation  committee to be confirmed. This removes (he church here from the list of  missions and gives it power to extend  a call lo -t pastor.  Stevenson  to Co. are announcing a  removal sale for the next fifteen clays.  The readers of the Hniij\Ln had moro  complete returns on Wednesday  morning of Ihe. Ontario election than  the people of any town on the mainland of British Columbia. In accordance with the wish of several of our  subscribers wc gave the latest news in  a bulletin on Thursday morning. The  Hkralij is here to give the news, and  whatever wo can do to g"t and provide  our readers with the the latest intelligence on all events of interest will  bo done.  The latest returns of the Ontario  election indicate quite as complete a  victory of t.he Conservative opposition  as the Hist dt snatches indicated. Afler the general election of ISO) the Liberals numbered .10, the Conservative 27  and the Pations and' Independents, of  whom there wtis a bewildering variety  of shades of opinion, lilled 17 seat-s out  of a total of 01, Air. Hardy having a  straight Liberal backing of six over all  and being really able to count a large  proportion of the patrons among his  supporters. Tt is at (he expense of  these nondescripts that the Conservatives have chiefly strengthened themselves, although the Liberals in some  cases were not in the Held at all, hut  left the constituency for their seciet  supporters. The present house as.far  as the returns indicate will consist of  ���������IS Liberal, 41 Conservatives, and'l  Patron, who supported the opposition-  last session. Russell, where the election will come olf Tuesday is claimed  by both sides, hut Robillard, llu*. Conservative' member, was the sitting,,  member anel carried the seat, which  went Liberal in IS91. on a bye election.  Of the Hardy cabinet Dryclen, .Minister.'of Agriculture ami Gibson, Commissioner of Cioivu Lauds lost, their  seats, on the other hand the defeated  candidates St." John, VVilloiighby..Vk������a-  cham aud Alagwood are ail prominent  members of the opposition. The loss  of the Patron leader Jos. Haycock will  be felt on the 3__.ibi-i-.-il side.  NOTE AND' COMMENT .,*  The Edmonton Bo-ird of Trade,  many of whom are staunch Liberals,  is out flat-footed against the Jlann-  Alackenzie deal in a circular addressed  fo the People,.-Parliament and. Pi-ess  of Canada. It condemns the'scheme  as '-crude, ill-devised and.dangerous'.'"  It goes on to say :* " It' is al[ but;;iii-  credihletbat'tliis '<?i"ver'iYmeht 'shoulel  need to be warned against creating  great' monopolies, and reinin'ticd of  their past record. For-eighteen years  they vigorously'opposed the. berila'ge-  squandering, monopoly-making policy  of their predecessors,'the bitter fruits  of wliich this North-West.^-tiid ' all  Canada must long continue to leap.  Clan any support er of the scheme" in  discussion explain in Parliament, or.in  thePrc*='s, wherein itdiffei's in principle en' detail from the worst doings of  t heir predecessors ? Can we not see  behind the puppets, Alann and Mackenzie, tlie hydra-headed monster  which has so long devoured the wheat  fields tind grazing lands of our great  West, audnow seeks to swallow., the  _nugge_ts_.ancLgolcLilustj-of��������� the-North'-?-  The Crows Nest Pass sjibsiely, even  with its redeeming features, evoked  the dismayed, it' silent, disapprobation  of all .true*Liberals. What must, t heir  I'eelings lie novv, if they, iu the East,  call see with- our- eyes the* dangers  looming on the horizon ? The population which litis long gi tinned, under  the oppression e.f the 0. P. R. is of a  very different oiiler fr"in that which  will shortly fill the golden Noi-lh. and  the discontent whicli. on the prairies,  spent itself, in grumbling, will, in  Nuggetlatid assume a f-'t.-tl form.  Does the Government suppose that an  unfortunate who lias left perhaps a  needy family thousands of miles away,  bra red uncomplainingly the privations of almost at die travel, and.  afler spending his last cent, finds  wealth in his grasp, is going to quietly  obey llu; dictum oi'agnlil cumtnis-ioii-  er. "Hands Off! This belongs to Alann  and Mackenzie."' l-'loli and blood will  not stand such 11 cat ment. Respect  MAY be shown to tiie* Government's  claim to alternate areas or block", ill-  advised policy though it be but so sure  as this mine-grabbing syndicate a( tempt to eiifmce their claims,  open rebellion will result. Aniui-ic.-in  miners taking lhe lead, troops mn.-t. be  sent'in. and l^ol the country is  Jilundged into the hotroi-s of n war.  involving many millions of expense  and more than likely intei national  coin plications. Will the American  government stand by and see its subjects shot down in (lufeose of that, lo  which their outlays, hardships tind  privations have given them the best  right in the world."  Tlie brilliant young slatesmau who  represents (his constituency has  evolved a new reason for supporting  the Maiui-Alackenzie deal. He is  going to vote for it because the proposed line will act as a feeder to the  Kamloops route to Klondike. It has,  *we believe, been remarked before by  somebody, that the dividing line between genius and lunacy is a veiy  narrow one.  SPAIN IS.CALM  DOET NOT BELIEVE THE STATE^  WILL GO TO WAR.

LOTTERIES  The recent conviction^ at  Medicine Hat in" connection with  the promotion ' of lotteries has  caused a good deal of discussion  amoDR the Territorial press on the  innate iniquity of the raffle. Itis  pointed out that raffles are illegal,  contrary to the public iuterest,  and generally demoralizing to the  community. No doubt, so long as  the statute book specifies a punishment for conducting a raffle, it is  right that the law should be  carried out and that breaches of it  should be punished. The question  here, however,-is not as to the  carrying out of - the law but as tD  the justification for its existence  in its present form. If- is difiicult  to understand why a poor woman  overtaken by. misfortune who  raffles her jewelry as the, most  ad\ antageous means of purchasing  food for her family should be  denounced as a criminal while  charitable ladies who by the con  sent of 'the mayor conduct raffles  for church purposes should be held  up to public admiration. II the  raffle system is .demoralizing, it is  just as much so, if not more, when  sheltered under the cloak of  religion as when a straight  business transaction. If it is contrary to public interest as well as  demoralizing one would thiok it  should be so in Quebec as well as  iu the eTerritories. The same law,  however, which makes lotteries  illegal elsewhere in the Dominion,  makes an express exception in the  case of certain lotteries conducted  in that province. This is the condition of things which The  Herald objects.to. Let the law  apply to everybody in the  Dominion, or else wipe it out  altogether.          _^___i_^_^_  Meet the Government���������Shiprccks Off  the Maine Coast���������The Greek Loan  ���������Ladv Abbott Dead���������Want to Shut  Out Americans���������The Union Jack  Hoisted���������Parnell's Family in   Want  Ottawa, Feb. 2(5.���������The Minister of  the Interior seeing no objection^ to  meeting the wishes of the Fort Saskatchewan Agricultural Society recommends that letters patent be issued  to the society for 20 acres of land in  the Mount-id Police Reserve, township  ol range 22, west of the 4th meridian  on payment of the usual patent fee of  .$10, on condition that the land be used  for purposes properly connected with  the society and for no other.

FREE LANCE SAYINGS  !Now that transcontinental passenger rates have been cut in two  by the railway rate war, perhaps  a few Eastern Canadians will  muster up sufficient courage to  come "West and see what really  good places there are in Canada.  A good many people are complaining of colds, ���������"���������' whicli have  become more frequent than welcome. There is nobody so-lazy  that he will not catch a cold, and  the peculiar thing about it is that  if you let it run on, it will stay  with you, while if you stop it, it  -~vill go away.  The Canadian government  should not allow itself to be  swayed by further threats from  the United States. The United  States have already doro everything possible to hamper Canada.  They can do no more. The administration to them of a dose of their  own mediciney would help the  istuation more than anything else.  Emile Zola, who, judging from his  books, roust have been the very hottest  thing thatever came down the pike, is  having a tough time of it in Paris  where he is being prosecuted by the  Government for his aspersions on the  French Army in connection with the  Dreyfus affair.

In the older and more effete countries whenever the Grandes Dames  wish to exploit their talents, beauty,  eccentricities and dresses, and inci-  dently inspire the herd with reverential awe and wonder, they eive private  theatricals in aid of some local church  ���������"____. ������ba.rl_-y_t They rehearse and_pro-_  "ducelirfast French play "Frou-Frou."  which calls for lots of swagger and  tine raiment, with the ostensible object of purchasing a new cloth for the  altar; and. although there seldom remains sufficient money after paying  expenses to buy a cloth large enoueh  to flag a hand caiv-yet their purpose is  served in that they have toundan outlet for the alleviation of their vanity,  which, as we all know, is a quality  hard to keep bottled up. Tn like-manner, as human nature is the same the  world over, we have it in a humblpr  form in the little hamlpts of the Xorth-  ' west: only they don't play "Frou  Frou." Every now and then a concert  is held in the church with some charitable object in view, usually the paying  off of a fraction of the inevitable debt  ���������:i laudable cause. We are always  present at the<~c functions, cheering  like mad from a back seat. The  church concert is always n. Sucres  J' estime. There are no cynical critics  sitting in the pit. for there "'aint no  pit." and any one who cannot recognize the favor conferred by the Hon.  Tommy Lines in consenting to come  down all the way from South Edmonton to sing "Tbe night beforo Larry  wa.s stretched" and the "Grui.**kppn  Lawn" in aid of the ecclnsinsttral situ  ation should be thrown neck and crop  out of the sacred edifice.  The purposes of christanitv are al*~o  pleasantly served by the spirit of love  for each other which such entertainments seem to foster in the breasts of  the fair performers. There is not the  slightest ���������suspicion of a spirit of rivalry ; and ^palouiy, the green-eyed  monster breaks not into their ranks.  The arrangement of prphminaries, thp  sdpction of singpr*" and sireompani**ts  and minor details are engineered with  such consummate skill and tact, hy the  pastors, and are characterised hysuch  mutual love and forbearance on the  part of thepprformers themselves, that  it is no wonder the walls of the church  are decorated with " Peace on parth  and mercy mild," -'Love one another,"  and such like appropriate legends.  Amongst, prima donnas nnd stars of  the theatrical firmament there is a  chronic state of internecine warfarp,  easily accounted for, because thpy arc  spry people, and each think** himsolf  or herself ju-tt the cIippsp. as Ward and  McAllister used to put il. Whereas,  it is a well-known fact, that members  of church choirs and those who have  the church concerfchabit are siocially  endowed by providence wilh the  Christ-like attribute of humanity, and  are ever ready to sacrifice themselves  for-���������sweet charity's sake.

Burgess fell on the sidewalk, and  was confined to his house until very  recently with an injured knee. The  doctors attribute tlie trouble to lack  of exercise in the open air.

The proposed construction ot ono hundred nml fifty miles of railway from Telegraph Creek to Teslin Lake, forming nn  important link in tho Klondilco roll to,  has again brought, llio contractors,  Messrs. William McKonzio ami IJ. IJ.  Mann, prominently beforo tlio public.  This stupendous task whicli lias to ho accomplished within four months, could  not, it is declared, havo heen entrusted to  iiicu-c capable men. Both aro essentially  fclt-mado. They each began at tho bottom ot tho ladder, and although tho primn  of lifo has not, yet boon reached, both  have won tamo tind fortuno. Ono is said  to be tho complement; of tho other. Uoth  aro Canadians.  Mr. McKonzio was born at Klrkflold,  Out., about forty-eight years ago. In his  early manhood ho engaged in   lumbering  XV'.   "    v(  Ml".  P.  D.

Later on ho had a share in the construction of the Victoria railway, before undertaking contracts on the Credit Vulloy  Railway. Before tho work was completed  hoc became associated with Mr. James  Ross, vico-president. of tlio Mont real Street  Railway. When Mr. " Ross obtained tho  contract for constructing several ot the  most difficult sections ot tho CP. ll. in  tho Rooky Mount-iins Jlr. McKenzie  went west to act for lilm In an executive  -capacity. Mr. McKonzio afterwards built  thu snow-sheds through the Mountains.  On returning to tho Kast, he secured, in  conjunction with Mr. Kloly of Toronto  and Cleveland capitalists, tlio franchise  ot the Toronto Street Railway. His executive ability and appreciation ot public  requirements has helped make the railway  tho valuable property it is to-day. Mr.  McKenziu's nest venturo was to undertake with Mr. Ross the transformation of  the Montreal Street Railway into an electric read.  Besides this comparatively small contract, he built the Llegina &��������� Long Lako  Railway, the Calgary and Edmonton Railway. Mr. Mann was associated with him.  later in building the Lake Manitoba Rail-.  way and Canal Company.. He is essentially one of "tlie swiftest" and most clearheaded men in Canada. Besides his street  railway interests hero and in Toronto,  he controls, with Sir William Van Home  nnd Mr. Ross, tho Winnipeg Strcot Railway, as well as several other street railway franchises. Ilo was ono of tho llrst  E-istem men to invest in Western mining  properties. His revenue from this "source  nlono is very handsome.   ���������  Mr.   McKenzie's   latest   deal with Mr.  Ross was to leaso fie Birmingham (Eng.)  Tramway Co.'s   systom,   whicli   is   now  b.'ing converted into an electric road.  r'~   Mr. !_). D. Alann first saw tho  light on  a farm near Guelph, Ont.,   noarly   forfcy-  threo.years ago. ' In   his youth and early  manhood ho"won many prizes in  athlotio  ���������pompeliitlons.-���������Ills -physlcal-developmont-  *  was well high perfect.   At many Scottish  gatherings ho defeated all   comers in performing such fotits  as   putting   the shot  and tossing tho caber.  Air. Mann's first experiences were in  tho lumbering districts of Michigan. Ho  Is proud of recalling tho send-off ho was  given by his aged father, who presented  him with a' small Testament.   Although  lilt. WILLIAM M'KKNZII--.  ho has sinco achieved worldly success, ho  says ho would always preserve unci cherish tho parting gift of his deceased parent. Mr. Alann subsequently went to  Manitoba. He socurcd contracts on tho  Canadian Pacific Railway then* building,  and so successfully did ho accomplish tho  work that long beforo tho road was completed ho bocamo identified at various  intervals with Mcsssrs. Holt and McKen-  7.I0 in tho completion of other contracts,  lie also built forty miles of the Hudson  Bay Railway beforo undertaking tho contraction of the Calgary and Edmonton  Railway with Messrs.

He has always enjoyed tho reputation of treating his employes with gn-at  liberality and consideration. ~~er*,onally  Mr. Mann Is known for tho modesty of  his demeanor. IIo Is a warm-hearted,  whole-souled Individual, who, having  fought au up-hill liatthi against odds, has  ���������tiu'li'd many others on tho way to fame  onil fortune.

I__est Only Their Labor and 810.10 AplMS  In 01s Months' Operations.  Evtry one who had ever bean in Alaska  of course began ot the oponlng of tho Klondike craze to relato personal experiences  which in Eomo way or other bad connection with the subject of gold mining.  Many of them had a chance to make a fortune if they had only known, nnd others  saw millions, moro or loss, taken out of  tho ground with a broken shovel, and tho  mini whoso only cnpltnl lt wus 001110 back  to tho Statos and live happily over afterward. But in spite of the lngonulty which  has heen put into the manufacture of thesn  ttorlos, thero is an original flavor to one  told by a soldier at present located In tlio  United States army In this city.  It was iu 1880, whon ho wus in tho navy,  that ho was stationed on a vessel near  Sitka. There was considerable gold boing  taken out near thero, -and an enterprising  speculator got bold of a party of marines  on the ship and induced them to buy his  mine. There wero 100 of thorn who finally  wont into tho scheme, and they paid $10  each for their now souroe of wanltli. There  wns always a good deal of spare time on  thoir hands, and they easily scoured per;;  mission to use this in working their claim.'  For six months the soldiers dug quartz by  day and dreamed of sudden wealth by  night. All wero confident of being able to  retlro from tho service with oomfortablo  riches, and looked sadly on the poor officers, who would have to keep on soldiering  all their lives, not being in tho soherao.   *  At the end of six months tbey had a  large pilo of quartz, and, loading it into  all tho old barrels, bags and provision  ensos thoy could find, thoy sent it by ship  to tho nearest orushing mill. Then followed weeks of waiting till the returns should  come, and an air of subdued importance  grow in each man who expected at any  time to be Informed that ho was worth  thousands of dollars. At last tho ship  came which brought tho roturns from tho  consignment, and tho gallant hundred  gathered around the treasurer of tho company to hoar how much each was now  worth. That individual opened the message, nnd a grim smilo frozo on his faco ns  he went through a short calculation on tho  back of the envelope .  "Gentlomon," ho snid, "you, each owo  the sum of 10 cents to tho stoamship company that earrlod tho quartz. The gold in  it was just $10 short of tho - freight  charges."  And then ho passed his hat, while ono of  thoir numbor sought out tho ship's chaplain to lead in a short service.���������Springfield Republican.  He Was Examined.  Francois Arago, tho groat French scientist, was a prococious'youth. Ho was prepared for tho rigid examinations of the  Kcole Polytechniquo beforo he wns 17 years  old. M. Do Mirccourt tells'a characteristic anecdote concerning Arago's examination.  Tho examinor was almost brutal in his  manner toward the young candidates. -A  fnvorito companion of Arago was badly  frightened at his sovero questions and failed to pass tho examination. At length  Arago's turn came.  "Youngman," said tho examiner sternly, "you aro probably as ignorant as your  companion. I adviso you to go and complete your studios bofore you risk this examination." n  "Monsieur," replied tho boy, "timidity  was_all that^ prevented my .companion  from���������passing.'1 Ho knew much moro than  ho seemed to know.''  "Timidity I" exclaimed tbe examiner.  "Thoexcuso of fools I Perhaps you aro  timid also."  "Far from it," returned Arago shortly.  "Takocaro. It would bo wise to spare  yourself the disgrace of boing rejected!"  "Tho disgrace for mo would lie in not  being examined," said tho youDg candidate proudly.  "Arago's solution of tha problems set before him was so accurate and so brilliant  thnt at last his examiner sprang from his  chair and, throwing his arms about tho  boy's neck in delight, exolaimed:  "Bravo! If you are not received into  the Eeolo Polytechniquo, no ono will "bo  admitted."  And he then began a career which added  2 greatly to tho stock of human knowledge-  ���������Youth's Companion.  FIGHTING THE SNOW.  Sh* Liked SsUlnff.  The following true tale is a most curious  instance of living well on nothing a year  without breaking the laws of tho land.  About 20 years ago a steam packet company of Liverpool wished to buy a piece of  land which wag owned by a "stay at homo  spinster," as her noighbors described her.  She sold her land at a very low price, but  insisted upon a clause being inserted In  tho agreement giving her the right at any  time during her lifo to travel with a companion in any of tbo company's vessels.  ' When the ngreomen t was closed, she sold  her furnituro and wont on board tho Unit  outgoing ship belonging to tho packet  company. For years this wise splutter  lived nearly all the time upon one ship or  another, frequently accompanied by a  companion, according to tho agreement.  This was always a person who otherwlso  would havo beau a rogulur paiscuger, but  who purchased ber tlckot at reduced raws  by paying the spinster Instead of tho  packot company. Tbo company offered  her moro than twice the value of tho land  If she would givo up her privilege, hue  this sho would not do. Her reply was,  "You got the land cheap, and I like sailing, bo we ought both to bo satisfied. "���������  'Upplncott's Magazine.  II  Sent Him Off In Style.

"Canada is tho b.ittlo ground of the biggest snow fights on earth. .Thero are  thousands of men in the northwest whos?  only occupation during tho winter months  is to fight snow. Jt Is oxciting work, too,  a lifo that involves tho greatest hardships  and continual risks. Onu might search  tho world over for a moro desperate and  dangerous employment."  It was a Canadian Pacific engineer  who spoko. We wero traveling over tho  Boeky Mountains at midnight.   Through  THE    ENGINEER    AFTER     A    RIDE   IN   THE  STORM.  the glass-panoled door at tho tuil of the  train ono could seo tho icy ercsts of tho  mountains in tho pale moonlight. In the  wako of tlie summer fires the trees stood  up thin and rakish, " liko tho . masts of  ships. Elsewhere they wero shrouded with  drooping branches and spattered stems  in tho universal snow. Tho snow gave an  impressive sense of poacefulness to tho  impenetrable silonce of the mountains. I  looked out upon the solemn stillness, the  broad stretches of motionless white, tho  deep passages of avalanches carved along  the mountain sides, with'n feeling of awo  for tho immensity of,tho power that had  so changed the face of nature.  But tho railroad man had no illusions.  To him tho snow was a foo, a foo to bo  feared, a foo against whom men and engines had often measured their strength  in vain.  Every now and then the sccuory was  blotted ,out; tho glass panels suddenly  showed us nothing but tho reflection of  the car and bobbing light of the overhead  lamp. They wero snow sheds through  which the train was passing. The railroad, cut like a singlc^step in tho side of  ho mountain chasm, was roofed in as  snugly as u house. .Aboyo, for all we  knew, the snow might bo tumbling headlong over tho slippery ledge in a tempest  of passion; but, for all its malevolence,  impotent to inflict an injury to the poor  snake of a train hiding bonoath its shelter.  Those snow sheds havo been erected  among the mountains at an enormous  cost. They are of massive timber work���������  heavy beams of squared timber, dovetailed and bolted together, and backed with  rock. They iiro fitted into tho mountain  so that they become, as it were, a purt of  the mountain side, so as to bid defiance  to ttfe most terrific avnlancho.  Anything may precipitate an avalancho  down the steep declivities of those pilcd-  np precipices, among which the single-  track railway looks liko a pin's scratch  would on tho hand of a man. It need bo  -no moro^than^ a���������looscnod^ scrap of-rock  that has started rolling downwards with  no forethough of the immeasurable cataclysm that its passa"jo will create.  In a fow yards it has become imbedded  in a mighty mass of moving snow, a  wool -white torrent licking up tho leviathan  trees as it passes like straws swept up in  a storm of autumn leaves, growing more  venomous, more powerful, moro irroslsti*  bio, until the rush of tho wind before it  clears a passngo through tho forest anticipating its ravages, removing all obstacles  as tho outriders to a royal equipugo inako  way through'a mass of human beings.  lt is truly a royal foo that tho railroad  men of the northwest have to encounter  uniong tho mountains���������tin onrushlog,  terrific force, something which cannot be  chocked. It is necessary to resort to sub-  terfugo to cheat it, to hido^ from lt, or to  make good by artificial means tho path  that tho railway has struck out for itself.  Among tho Cascade Mountains 1 havo  seen seven and eight engines linked together charging impotently against tho  snowbanks, nnd at night time there Is  no moro wonderful sight  than this, each  THE ROTARY PLOW  AT WORK.  hissing engine throwing its sheath of firelight on the tenders, with their heavy  loads of wood fuel, on the 'gleaming  snowbanks, on tho great trees seeming to  press round to mock by their stillness all  this useless fuss and fury, this powerless  raging, this rcsultloss disturbance of  their peace.  Under favorable circumstances, the  snow parts readily before tho onslaught  of tho plow. At times, however, under  the b-ittcry to which it Is subjected, it  only becomes moro rigidly compressed,  moro solid, more impenetrable at each  renewed charge, a solid, unbudging block  of ice. Tho engine may go back a milo,  the throttle may bo thrown open, it may  rash upon the barrier at a sliced of 40 or  50 miles an hour, but when the snow  dust has cleared sufficiently I for the engineers to see around them, it may be  that they havo only advanced a yard, pog*  sibly the engine  fires  have  beenjeirtln"  guishod, nob improbably the engine may  have been thrown off tho line.  Tho ono recourse! which then remains  is to call in the assistance of a small  army of mm, that a way may bo forced  through tho snow with pick and shovel,  and, while these operations aro progressing, the passenger train has to bo kept  constantly on the move, lest In a fow  hours it becomes incapable of movement  nt all.  At such a time it is no unusual tiling  to soo sovoral hundred men at work on a  single drift. Pcrhnps eight or a dozen  platforms aro out in the snow, and thus  what is rcmovod fiom tho lino is passed  upward from stago to stage, climbing tho  steep walls in liny shovelfuls, until lt  finally roaches thn open waste, thirty or  forty feet abovo tho heads of tho workers  on the ground lovel.  The thing that has simplified the task  ot snow Ilghtirg more than anything else,  especially in tlio prairie country, is tho  rotiry plow. Thu appoaranco ot tho "rotary," as it Is familiarly callod by railroad men, reminds ono of nothing so  much as the crow propeller ot a steamship. It is a huge rosette of flanges, about  twelve feet in dlamctoi', that bores its  way into snowbanks, clearing just enough  space la unable! the waiting train to pass  through. As tho winter goes on, tho snow  is piled higher and higher on both sides,  until wo.ha\e the perpjiuliculai' embank-  niunt tlirousli whiuh tho train often  pussos for miles without a break.  As the wheel ruvolves, tho snow chips  pass back through lh i intervals between  the.shovcls, fall into a largo-sized fan elo-  vator, aud aro hurled forth on this or that  side of tho Hue, according to tho quarter  from which the wind is blowing. Iu a,  giaceful arch of silver dust, thu snow ia  flung into tho air to a height o������ (10 or 70  feet, descending liko a fountain over  the half-buried poms ut the telegraph.  From the smoke stick a volume of iiro is  rising. Thero is an uproar like tho sound  of artillery galloping over .1 cobbled street.  As a spectacular effect the snow plow is  a great succoss. Some of tho bigger plows  weigh over 50 tuns by themselves, and  with the machinery that operates them  the total weight is over 100 tons.  Tlio cutter, with its owu private en-,  ginc, t.s it wero, is placed on a massive  truck which is inclosed liko the cab of a  locomotive and linkod to a heavy freight  engine, the "Hog." Following behind  this travels another engine drawing its  load of, tools nnd its complement of workers. .The men who operate a snow plow  .draw'high wages, tho expenses in this  rcspecS on ono job amounting to over $150  a day. A rotary in goud hands will clear  a snow blockaded track at tho rate of  from tivo to twelve miles an -hour; but  the consumption of coal is one ton in ;S0  minutes.    '  , With'.-t .rotary plow the engineers do  not run tho same risk as they do on the  plow of tho old-fashioned type, with  which "it is often necessary to charge the  snowbank at top speed, not merely cutting through, but burrowing under tho  snow. I'm,even tho j'otary plow is liable  to be disabled by encountering tho frozen  carcass ot a hoi*=o or a steer in - a snowbank, or the debris cf fallen telegraph  poles, or,^.. among tho mountains, .-tho  trunks of gigantic troos. It' is nominally  tho duty of the section. men to look out  for this, and, if possible, to warn tho  engine driver, and to telegraph for a gang  of workmen with pick and shovol^to clear  the track in the old-fashioned way. But  it is needles, to say that tho most vigilant  section men cannot always bo relied upon  In such u matter as this.

Tho map Is  taken from the Alaska Mining Record,  primed at Juneau, which is a good authority on all matters pertaining to placer  mining in thu Yukon district.  The llrst dlseovory of gold in any paying quantities was mado on Bonanza  Creek. There nro several stories about  how tlio gold was first discovered, no two  of which agree. William Ogilvie, the  .Surveyor-General ot tlio Dominion, is authority for the statement that tho Klondike lind been prospected at least, twico  beforo tho discovery of gold was made.  Tlie llrst timu was several years ago. Apparently tho difficulty with tho original  pro-pi:eioi-s was that they did not go deep  enough. AU the gold that has been discovered in such paying quantities has  been fuunil at depths from fifteen to thirty  feet below the surface.  Ir will lie seen from this map what a  very small section ot tho entire Yukon  country has boon prospected thoroughly  and to what, 11 littlo nrea is duo all the  excitement. From Dawson City to Indian  Kiicr is only thirty milos. Partway down  from Indian River the Sixty-Mile" River  flows into the Yukon from the west.  Most of the Sixty-Milo River and its tributaries were prospected pretty thoroughly  long beforo the rich strikes on Bonanza  Creek wero mailo, and tho diggings thero  bad tho reputation of boing among the  wealthiest placers ovor known; but tho  wonderful finds on the Klondike and its  tributaries havo made Sixty-JIilo River  and the groat strikes on Forty-Mile Greek  below Dawson appear trivial.  Tlio le3_t creeks in tho Klondikodistrict,  are Bonanza, Eldorado. Hunker and Gold  Bottom. Although the Klondike has  given its name to the diggings, the richest  claims are 1111 other crooks.

Bear  Creek, Ifuuker Crook and Too Much Gold  Crook. Bonanza Crook is about twenty*  live miles long, counting all tho various  windings, and is practically ull located,  there boing 10U claims, below tho discovery claim and 1:>3 abovo it. From the  west there flow iuto Bonanza Crook,  Boulder Creek, Adams Crook and Eldorado Creek. Boulder Creek and Adams  Creek havo been very thoroughly pros*  pouted, and so,," iii fact, lias Eldorado  Crook, qlthotigb. only ton claims havo  been recorded on -Eldorado Crook. Tlio  richest claims in' tho Klondike district  tire just at tho junction of Eldorado and  Bonanza creeks. o  Bear Creek, east of tho Bonanza, is all  located. Between Bear Creek and Hunker, Twclvo-AIilo Creek flows into tho  Klondike from the north. That, too, is  -iill-loeatcdt-^On- tho-Hunker-Creek-thu  discovery is about fifteen miles up from  tho mouth. From tho west Last Clmnco  Creek, which Is littlo better than a gulch,  and Gold Bottom Creek flow Into Hunker. Both tiro located. Too Aluch Gold  Creek, oast of Hunker, is said to bo all  located.  Tho streams that flow south from Tho  Dome into Indian Kiver are Quartz  Creek, furthest west; Xo Namo Creek,  and Dominion Creek.  Ono ot lho last parties that came out  from Duwhon to Juneau reported that tho  mothur lodo has been discovered, but it is  doubtful if subsoquentdiscovery boars out  this information. It Is a fact that quartz  in very rich quantities has been discovered iu several places. l*Vi"k Sluviii, tho  pugilist, made tbo dli-cu* y -.i-st, while  proe-pecling on The Dome Ho had boon  Influenced hy tho fact lh.it upjii tho side,  bill-, of tho creeks small specimens of  quart/, and nuggets in profusion had been  found.

Finally, on The  Homo, he uncovered a vein eighteen inches wide of white quartz heavy with  gohl.  Within twenty-four hours it was reported that apparently the same vein had  been struck in threo different places, although widely apart. The second discovery was thirty feet under ground, on  claim Xo. til. above tho discovery on  Eldorado. This wtis found by A. II. Jose  and his partner, who wero working a  placer claim for another man. Thu quartz  claim being 11 separate and distinct prop*,  erty from thu placer, these men at once  located it for themselves. The ledgo  crosses tho creek ut right angles. Tho  third discovery was at Xo. 10 Xnggct  Gulch, a ravine which leads to Bonanza  Creek from tho west, bctwoen Eldorado  and Adams Creeks.  A lino projected from Tho Dome, anil  running straight from tho extreme eastern point of discovery at Tho Dome to  the westerly point of discovery on Xug-  get Gulch, intersects nil theso places where  quartz has been found, nnd indicates tho  continuity of the ledgo. A good many  locations have already been made, but it  will bo impossible to do work sufllclont  to demonstrate more fully tho value'and.  extent of tho ledgo until spring or_.-ives.  Somo blasting operations have been carried on nt Xo. 31 Eldorado, and about,  thirty pounds of oro havo been taken put.  It was white crystallized quartz, containing free gold. Tho samples brought to  the coast aro very rich. They might more  properly be described as specimens ljetter  fitted for a cabinet than a quartz mine.

This is the most  famous creek in the Big Bend and  furnished the biggest proportion of the  gold taken out during lho excitement,  of 'CO and '07. Traces of former occupation and work tne everywhere  extant. Long tunnels are driven into  the benches, shafts sunk and the ruins  of scores of log cabins and remains of  mining tools mark the scenes of the  milling activity of thirty years ago.  The richness of thf gravel left, easily  leads file to believe that the bars,  when llrst discovered, were of a very  productive nature. During thn last  four or live years the Consolation  cl-iim cm this creek has proved a verjuice property in the hands of working  men. and has turned out profitably  to the shareholders, being worked  economically and in a workmanlike  manner by means of a shaft drained  hv a bed rock drain.    In  1S00 as much  as $2<X" a week was taken nut of this  mine, which during the period of thai  year in which il was worked was  credited with $1,000. Nuggets going  as high in value a.-, $10 nntl $"><) have  been found in this mine, ami I lie gold  in il is coarse running from 5 cents to  50 cent nugget.

In an article bj' that gentlemen on the  Rig Bend country, which appeared  in'the Engineering'and Mining Journal of May S. 1S01, he says :  ������������������The Big Bend country has been  known to be auriferous for the last  :>0 vetits or more.
