whole city has been dumped down on this
swampy beach and huddled together In the
most unsanitary tents, shacks and cabins.
While the hope of quick wealth buoyed up
every one even these conditions were en
durable; but all of a sudden the boom has
dropord out of everything and desolation
reigns everywhere, rive million feet of
lumber, thousands of tons of the most mod
ern machinery, a thousand horses running
loose on the tundra. Duo wagons never put
together and countless stores of merchan
dise strew the beach as bitter evidences of
From Golovin Bav to Port Clarence, a
distance of MO miles, nre strewn tons and
tons of machinery, covered with rust and
sand and abandoned thero by the owners.
As much more has not been unpacked and
Is offered for less than it cost in the States.
Life Itelf .Not Snfe.
Thero Is no money in the whole pack.
People's faith was so completo that they
Invested all their money In the machinery
which is piled along the heach.
But the awful awakening has come. Daw
son over again, with the calamity ten times
worse, for here thero Is not a stick of tim
ber or fuel of any kind. Twenty thousand
persons want to go home.
As the long, dark nights begin to draw
over Nome life and property are becoming
of less value, unless g-jarded by n rifle.
Robbery by the chloroform and "black
Jack" methods Is becoming more and more
frequent, and the military', restricted in its

JOBBERS' PHENOMENAL TRADE.
All Hands Lose Half Holiday and
May Work All Sight To-Night
Getting Out Orders Mil
Yesterday waB another record-breaking
dav in the number of arrivals of visiting
merchants, nnd more than four hundred
registered at the headquarters of the Inter
state Merchants Association.
Secretary Singer has been worked go hard
for several days that ho was compelled to
give up yesterday and went home sick.
Instead ot getting a half-holiday. Jobbers
were busy until lato last night selling goods,
and many of them will ba compelled to
work their employes to-day In order to
keep up with their orders.
Most of tho buyers now In tha city are
from Missouri and Arkansas, but the North
west and Southern States aro well repre
sented, and Texas furnishes her usual
Tho boom In cotton has given an added
Impetus fo dry goods buying. Many of the
outsldo merchants who havo completed
their purchases of Btock are now buying for
speculation, as they expect heavy advances
in cotton goods.
As a result Jobbers in this line are doing
a phenomenal business.
Wholesale milliners are still rushed with
orders, and all report a heavy increase
over last ear.

government, is powerless against the riot

Fifty thousand miners, dlvekeepors, gam
blers, criminals and adventurers of all
kinds and both sexes dropped down on a
barren spot In the Arctic Circle without
government or police that has len the sit
uation at Cape Nome.
Shooting, stabbing and fighting of all
kinds went on day and nlglit. Neither mur
der nor theft could be punished or pre
vented. No man could call anything his own. Ho
could only hold what he had by force of
Brigadier Geniral Rindall Ins asumed
control of Cspe Nome. He Is commander of
the Department ot Alaska.
The two companies of soldiers at Nome
City proper are Companies A and K of the
Seventh Infantry. They number only
men, but their prestige nnd discipline will
probably enable them to maintain order. In
case of a violent outbreak the better ele
ment of the community, which Includes the
genuine miners, v. HI tally to the support
of tho soldiers, and that will insure defeat
for the lawless faction.
A bloody outbreak has been imminent
time and time again, owing to the brutal
and lawless conduct of certain adventun rs.
People are beginning to brtalhe more free
ly, now that the soldiers have, arrived.
iine Like Was rVewr Seen.
Hitherto there has been practically no
cevtrnment of any kind at Cape Nome.
1 he Chamber ot Commerce has been the
oi-ly central authority, and lis authority
has nmnuutti! to nothing. At it meeting of
the chamber. United States Commissioner
Hanson offered to organize a police force
if $I,J could be raised to start thing". The
inuney was not forthcoming, and martial
law was then proclaimed.
Cape Nome is the most curious spectacle
Imaginable to-day. It is a long stretch ot
leel sands, a crowned mass of tents, huts,
boes. barrels, eans of lood. hungry dogs,
pigs, cows and miscellaneous baggage. This
onstltutrs the llrst line, behind which Is
u collection of wooden and sheet-Iron
houes. several stories high, bigger tents
than the llrst; saloons, hotels, restaurants,
theaters, side shows, i.ancu halls and store.".
All these are built o:i the curious grayl'h
gietn tundra, which Kse.s gently back to
the snow-clad hills, four and a half miles
Fifty steamships have already anchored
In the open roadstead this summer, and
unloaded LUM) people and 11.RC0.IC0 worth of
freight on the beach. These shins came up
loaded to the hurricane deel. with people,
nnd tho gold-crazed adventurers endured
the most terrible hardships to get here.
There art- no docks and no wharves. Every
body had to get aliore in boats or as
best he e-ould. and '-b'st" wa pretty bad
us a rule. Freight was carried ashore In
lighters, and pllesl up on the beach In un
A rerent storm tossed most of the ships
In the harbor up on the bench as wrecks.
The high sea Inundated the town, causing
exposure to thos left homeless and spread
ing tilth and disaster even-where.
.Stole the Public Well.
The most dlsugreeable thing that has hap
pened was the stealing of the public well.
When East Nome was organized the miners
there dug a line, deep well, protected by
headless barrels tilled with stones and piled
one upon another. Every one used the water
from this well free of charge. Then one of
the latest comers qul-tly look possession
or the well during the night, built a house
over It, and made it his private property.
He charges o cents it bucket for water.
Undoubtedly, be Is destined to be a mil
lionaire. This man is a capable citizen and
uses a gun deftly. The eittzens tlecided not
to inte-rfere with him and to pay for their
water, feeling thankful that he did not ask
Every kind of swindle and "crooked
gnme" Is being practiced upon the tender
feet, sickness Is widespread, crime Is ram
pant, food and fuel are scarce or beyond
the reach of the thousands stranded here,
and only by force Is It joislble for a man
to prote-ct himself and his own.
The wildest Western mining enmp of tho
early days, old miners here say. was not
a marker to Capo Nome of to-day.
The action of the Washington Govern
ment. In sending a transport here to re
lieve tho distressed Americans, Is providential.

Increase in the Industry in the
Last Few Years.
The recent development of the oil Indus'
try of California has created great inter
est, and the Indications are that oil will
soon be ranked :.? one of the leading
product of that State. The output of wells
In the nelKhborhood of Los Angeles ha
been steadily Increasing.
Wells were sunk in California in VS3Z. awl
the existence or oil was fairly demonstra
ted, but no attention was paid to It until
very recentlv. Aden interested in the oil
Lusiness In Pennsylvania and Ohio havo
done a good deal ot prospecting of late,
however, and the result has been a tre
rrendous increase In the magnitude of tho
oil industry, especially in the southern por
tion of the State.
A St. Louis company has been organized,
among ethers, to explore the new fields.
Those Interested in It are R. M. Scruggs.
J. W. Vancleave. Thomas Jletcalf, B. C.
Lucas. J. V. Olbson, W. A. Alderson and
Doctor R. M. Hlgsins.
Part of the residence district of Lo An
geles has recently been transformed into
an oil field. Residences costing J25.0O0 ana
more have been torn away and oil derricks
elected. The chtef use to which the oil will
be put Is for fuel. California has no dis
covered coal beds, and much of the coal
has been heretofore imported from the East
and from Alaska and Australia.
The oil In California is In sand, which is
In a horizontal stratum, and Is found at
depths of from eighty-four to 1,000 feet. The
deeper the well the stronger the How of OIL
The chances ot striking oil In a proved
district are ninety out of a hundred, be
cause the oil is percolated throusn the
sand, instead of belns in ribs, or pockets,
as in Ohio and, Pennsylvania.
