True, a man who gets in may j
stake a claim, but finding a buyer i
is something else again. Only the
big companies are in the market !
for claims, and as 700 miles of territory
has already been staked,
they are in a position to pick and
choose. Also they are in a position
to pay what they choose rather
than what the individual claim
owner may ask.
About 400 men were in the territory
this year and the tales they
bring back are not such as to start
a stampede of impoverished daredevils.
In the first place the impoverished
daredevils can t get into
the country because the mounted
police won't,let them. Before a man
can make the start he is examined
as to his physical fitness to withstand
the journey. He .tias to show
something approximating the condition
attained by Jack Dempsey

If he lacks any of the essentials
for a lon^ stay in the territory on
his own, he is turned back. If he'

distances, the perils of big lakes
and swift rapids, endures the plague
of mosquitoes and of the bull dog
flies that brinf? blood when they
bite, and stakes a good claim,
why, then he has the choice of entering
or selling. Men with claims
to sell are too many and those
who care to buy are few. There
are few and they are in no hurry.
T^y can afford to wait. No matter
how well the field turns out,
