HUNDREDS OF GOLD CREEKS
Inspector Strickland Says Alaskan
Reports Are Correct.
Only a Hejinnlng Made He Does
Not Anticipate Any Starvation
In the Country This Year.
Ottawa, Ont., Aug. 4. Inspector Strick
land, who has spent two years in the
Yukon, arrived here today on business
with the government. Speaking of the
Klondike, he said:
"There has been no exaggeration or the
richness or the gold fields. I have seen
nothing in the newspapers in regard to
the great strikes that is not true. The
amount of gold is unlimited. There are
hundreds of creeks, rich in gold-bearing
placers, not yet entered by prospector..
Or course, all the claims in the creeks
now opened are taken up, but those arc
only beginnings, I believe, of much greater
finds. Many men, I know, who struck
paying streaks, took out as much as
S200.000. Many others average d between
$100,000 aud $200,000, while others,
again, ranged only from $5,000 to 20,-
"1 do not anticipate any starvation in
the country this year. Most of the miners
who are in are supplied with a year's
provisions, and the companies will be able
to supply any deficiency. It is very
wrong for any one to attempt a trip to the
gold country in winter. I only know of
three or fonr persons who ever attempted
the Journey in wintei and were buccess-ful.'-
Mr. Stricklnnd leave- for the West, and
will take on the 22d lnt-tant from Regina
a party of mounted police for the Yukon.
Agents for a leading timber firm hae
been engaging men to go to the Klondike
countiy as rlvermen. The wages offered,
S40 a month, are certainly not excessive
in comparison with the inducemrit8 or
$10 to $10 per dayorfered for miners on
the spot. But the prospect for employment
In the lumber woods here is rather un
promising at present owing to the high
American tarifr. Under these circiim
staucei the offer of employment in tho
Yukon district la looked uron as a U
nanza, and the agents are having their
pick of the heat riveniien in the district

What I suffered with Asthma for 11
years no human being can imagine.
J?rom the first breath of cold weather till
spring my life was torture. Frequently
I would have two attacks in 24 hours,
when, for three hours at a time I could
scarcely speak or swallow, or get my
breath. Propped up in bed, unable to
lie down, coughing and straugling, dur
ing these paroxisms it seemed that every
moment would be my last. The best
doctors and all the celebrated Asthma
cures did not give me even temporary
relief. I used six $3.00 bottles of one
cure, but the first relief I obtained was
in using Brazilian Balm. That was in
September, 1883. I used four 50 cent
bottles during he winter following and
did not have one attack. Nor have 1
had a single attack during the past
twelve years. I always keep Brazilian
Balm ou hand and at tho first sign of a
cold I take it and am quickly cured and
all right. In fact the Balm is the doctor
in the house for all of us. ""It is simply
wonderful what it will do. Nothing is
too hard for it. We have practically
had no doctor's bills since we began to
use it. If people only knew its value,
not a home in the land would be without
it. Mrs. Mary Scott,

JPAIR CHANGE OF RECOVERY

Hopeful Local Physicians. Di
vided in Opinion.
Richard Curtis, the colored man who
stuck a nail into his foot neaily two
weck3 ago, fiom the wound of which a
case or ac.itelockjawor tetanus developed,
has a fair chance of recovery.' This sim
ple statement of facts is almost startling
in its significance, as any one, physician
oi lar.ian, familiar with the history of
tetauus cases will know. For it may be
said in a general way that lockjaw is
considered Incurable. Acute lockjaw was
always fatal until only two or thiee years
ago, and it has not been certain that cure
was possible up to the present time. Olnou
ic tetanus is sometimes cuied. Richard
Cuius lias a well-developed case of the
Dr. George T. Vaughan is giving Curtis
the antl-toxitie treatment at the Emer
gency Hospital. When the man put him
self liuaer treatment ou Tuesday morning
he had the disease in its worst form. At 12
o'clock last night he was much better. Dr.
Vaughan ia more than hopeful of his re
covery. On Friday, nearly two weeks ago, Curtis
ran a rufty lath nail Into the bottom of
Ms Toot near the little toe. There was very
llttle pain rrom the wound, and it soon
healed up entirely and he rorgot it.
On Friday, a. week after the accident, he
began to fel a slight stiffness in his Jaw.
This Increased, and the muscles on the back
of his neck were similarly affected.
These symptoms rinally became very bad,
his jaws were closed tightly,, his, head was
drawn back, his abdominal muscles were
tightly contracted, and he had frequent
spasms, sometimes with no apparent cause
and sometimes at the touch of any one's
hand or even of the wind. He suffered
great pain und could eat nothing.
It was in this bad condition that he went
to the Lmergency Hospital.
Dr. Vaugtinn last night thus described
the case to a Times reporter:
"Curtis had been suffering from the
disease foui days when we began the
treatment. It was certainly a well-developed
eaf-e. I legan the ue of the antl
toxine Immediately. An injection or the
inti-toxlne was made in the cellular tis
sues next the abdominal muscles. I ad
ministered chloral hydrate also, as the
man wis hi great need of rest and sleep.
He went to sleep and slept well Tor sev
eral hours. When he awoke he told me
that he was gnatfy relieved and rested.
Ho could open hlb mouth slightly, the
general convulsions had ceas-ed, and we
wire able to giie him a little beef tea
"We have administered the antl-toxlne
every tlx hours since that time and the
nj!ii continues to Improve slowly. 1 re
gard his recovery as very possible and
am full of hope."
The disease or lockjaw or tetanus Is
described its a tremendous excitation of
the nerve? owing to a poison in the blood
The patient die either immediately be
cause his heart Is affected or In the
cojr.-c of ten days or two weeks after
the development of the disease from ex

terrible and the pain fearful, and nn

antl-toxine cuies It it will be the first
icmcdy that has ever been found
Dr. Von Bergmann, of Berlin, one of
the greatest of the German physicians, said
three years ago only that of tho many
cases of acute tetanus that lip had seen
not one had recoveid. The testimony of
all the physicians is the same with regard
to the acute form or lockjaw.
This new treatment is bas-pd on the
theory that there is a bacillus- or gnrm or
tetanus. This theory is still doubted by
many physicians, but the books on liacter
lology recognize the tPtanu bacilluo, and
state that it Ins been spgregatcd. Th-
tetanus bacillas is about of the shape of
a drumstick, oi a nail with a roundhead
The antltoxine treatment is similar to
that for diphtheria The toxlne from a
case of tetanus is injected into un ani
mal, and, after several small injections
at intervals, some process in the animal's
condition produces an antidote to the
poison. The blood of the animal at this
stage contains this antidote everywhere.
It is this that is uhed as an injection
in a case or tetanus in a human being.
The books record one or two cases only
or cure by the anti-toxine treatment Tor
tetanus. These have been made within
the last two or three years. The case or
Curtis, which Dr. Vaughan Is now conduct
ing, lb' a peculiarly well developed case,

acute character and as to the perrectness
of the test, whether Curtis recovers or not.

porter for The Times laht night after Dr.
Yaughan had been interviewed. Their
opinions vary The allopathic physicians,
seemingly regard the anti-toxine treat
ment as a subject for much hope, and the
homeopathic people have not so much faith
in it. Dr. Waitz said:
"I have never seen a cake of tetanus
cuied. This cure, If it pioves to Le one,
will be a remarkable evidence of the truth
of the anti-toxine theory. There can he
no question that there is a bacillus of
tetanus. It has been segregated and cul
tivated. I "am looking forward to the
end of this case with much interest and
Dr. Swormstcdt said: "I do not care
to express an opinion of this case or the
anti-toxine treatment for tetanus on the
little knowledge that I have obtained of
it from the newspapers. I do not recom
mend the anti-toxine treatment, however,
for tetanus or for diphtheria. I do not be
lieve in it."
Dr. Sonnencbmidt said: "I consider the
nnti-toxine treatment a very litky thing,
and have not much faith In it. In the case
of tetanus I do not believe that there is any
bacillus of the disease. It is not a zymotic
disease, but is similar rather to that of a
snake-bite or other animal poison.
"In a very serious case of diphtheria, 1
would, perhaps, advice the use of the
antltoxine, because that is a terrible dis
ease and, in my opinion, everything should

ralth in the efficacy of the cure. The
most that is claimed ror the antltoxine
treatment in diphtheria is that the per

homeopathic treatment of diphtheria makes
as many cures, in my estimation, as the
allopathic treatment does with the antl

toward the New York shore, intending to
pass through the gap, but when about
turning her head down stream through the
gap, and while still pointing toward the
New York shore, she pprceived the steam
boat Isabella coming up stream and about
to pa.s-s through this gap.
The Isabella, which was crowded with
excursionists, blew "two whistles, indi
cating that she would pass between the
Maine and the New York shore. The com
manding officer of the Maine perceiving
that he could not pass the If-abclla to

blew one wbU;ie, shortly artcr repeating

that she was going astern, but she did not

The Maine struck a rar float lying at

The seitous disaster which might have
resulted from colliblon with the Isabella
aud the comparatively slight injury liable
to occur with the New York piers leaves
no doubt in the minds of the board that the

New York, Aug. 4. -All of the granger

for a number of-years. in the general mar
ket new high records or prices were made
lu several instances. Underneath the
very sttong tone or the market, however,
a certain feverlshncss was apparent, and
the day's advances were not made with
the ease of movement which character
ized yesterday's market. This is by no
means renmikable, however, when the
ulmost unbroken advance ot summer and
tho particularly rapid advance of the
week are considered.
In addition to the realization of profits
on a large scale, which might reasonably
be Ioolied for under the circumstances, the
foreign selling was exceedingly heavy on
the niaiket, an aggregate of over 80,000
shares being rej orted for foreign account.
Liquidation lu'such proportions might
well have turned another market than
that now prevailing. As a matter of fact,
the selling was absorbed with an case
which furnished striking evidence of the
Increase of outhide Interest in the market,
and, as noted, the day saw a new high
The degree of feverlshncss referred to
was, perhaps, duo to apprehensions of stock
market casualties as a result of the rapidity
of the advance, and, furthermore, to the
evidences that the long interest In the

In respect of activity the stock market
wa3 well up to yesterday's level, and the
dealings showed an even distribution of

explanations to account for particular

Speculation is widening to a most grat
ifying degree, the outside public seem
ingly having decided that the market is
to have a real and an extended Lcom.
Wall street Is happy aud will make lots cf
money. As-Tor the outside public what
does "that matter? The boom will have
its setbacks even it it is to be an ex
tended advance, and the setbacks will
he enough to catch the large majority of
those who trade on margins.
London sold extensively yesterday in
the face ot the excited bull market here.
Its oflerings caused a slight recession
rrom the prims recorded at the opening,
but by noon the losses had all been woo
hack. The present foreign distrust cf
speculative eondttious here is a lairly lo
ical one, appaiently bated on the unset
tied condition of the currency and a dis
belief In our "dawning prosperity."
Wall street has forgotten or disregards
the currejicy questiop, and believes tnor
oughly lu eoming prosperity. It is possiblii
also that London has the curious idea that
the management of our foreign relations
may get us into trouble, that we maybe led
into altercations with Spain, or Japan, or
sonic one, by our hot-headed Government.
On this point, surely, however, there is 110
need for fear. I
The grain market is having just such a
boom as the New Yorkstockmarket. Tlieio
is unquestionably a large deficiency lu
breadstuff, and a large buying of our
grain to supply it. The really rine outlook
ror the country in the matter of its gialn
business this seaton is worthy ot special
comment. There Is every prospect or
enormous yields ot grain, and also of liign
prices Tor it. Italns have fallen tn the
sections from which Tuesday brought ail

the crop news in general is excellent
ir any stocks have a steady advance
during the next tew weeks, they will
be the grangers, according to all appear
ances. Earnings in the grangers arc already
beginning to show the effect of the grain
movement. The July figures of the St
Paul and Rock Island roads, which came
out yesterday, are excellent exumDlP'
The result of the figures on those two
companies was noticeable in the action of
Dow, Jones & Co. say of this general
situation: "The heavy buying of wheat
for foreign account and the sharp advanco
abroad In that cereal over the holiday
were the predominating influence and
brought into it again the powerful people
who were such large buyers of St. P.nul
and Sugar some weeks ago. Thomas re
ports on wheat and the railroad crop re
ports from the Northwest were all that
could be desired, the only damage being to
corn in "Western Kansas, where the crop

deal or leallzlng, one Interest being credited
with selling 20,000 shares of the grangers,

000 shares of s'tock. Commission houebiiM
ness was larger than on any day yet, and
there were dealings of 100 shares or more

Mr. Carloy says of the market: "ir you

wild bears you will not put them into a

manipulators on the New York Stock Ex

"It was yesterday's wheat market over

buying fever. Today's prices, were the best
so far. There was practically no reaction.
