The att< ntions continued, and now Bige-

in South Boston nearly every night. First
her sisters and then her mother got to

questioned her about him and she told
them who he was.
With tears and pleadings they besought
her to give him up, saying that they
were sure he meant iio good to her, and
pointed out numberless instances of simi
lar cases whvre the life of the girl was
ruined by the attentions of similarly
wealthy and aristocrattcai liners.
But she gave no heed to their advice.
By this time the love god had obtained
as firm a grip upon her as upon Horatio
Bigelow. All through the fall and winter
of '96, and the spring of this year, her
devoted lover could be found every even

millionaire often visited the girl at her

The next two weeks were spent by the
bride and groom at Newport, where the
Eigelow family has been known lor near

TACOMA. Wash.. Sept. 29.—During the
last few clays more authentic news has
reached Tacoma regarding the Cape
Ncme gold fields than sinee^a quartet of
Swedes discovered the new diggings just
a year ago. The result is already mani
fest in the eager demand for passage on
the first steamers leaving for Cape Nome
next May, and the scores of letters re
ceived daily by steamship companies from
all over the country asking for.informa
tion as to the best way to reach the dis
trict. As in the past, fire'greatest num
ber of gold seekers will g,o from the
coast states, where Cape Nome gold, and
the diggers of it are already in evidence.
Jim Wardn'er, the veteran mining man
of Idaho, who is just back, declares Cape
Nome to be the most wonderful placer
camp ever discovered. He "has seen the
Klondike—in fact, has been an operator
in every placer and quartz camp of note
known to the present generation..."Ward
ner went all over Cape Nome. He took
no man's word. Pay after day he tramp
ed up and down the creeks and over the
beach diggings. At Nome, for the first
time in the history of placer mining-, gold
is being taken from the sea beach in pay
ing quantities, and to date no man can
say what may be the extent of the
beach diggings. It is known that pay
Kold is found with amazing regularity for
a distance of nearly forty miles up and
down the beach of either sides of Nome
and Anvil cities. The work has not suf
ficiently progressed for any one to form
an intelligent idea as to what will be the
life of the beach diggings. Apparently
there is no end to the rich sand.
]n his wanderings through the Cape
Nome district Wardner took a few' notes
on what he saw. "On Price O'Lane's
No. S. Anvil Creek,'' he said, "on the 20th
of August, six men in seven hours took
out $6,400. About the same day Lend
blom's force of men washed ?IS,OOO in
eighteen hours from No. 3, Snow Gulch.
Dexter Creek is showing up splendidly.
They seemed to hai c no tiouble to take
out $1 per hour per man in many places.
From one claim they washed $240 in less
than two hours. Billy V.'altcn, of Spo
kane, rocked out eight ounces in one day
from No. 7 Dexter, and Leo took nine
teen ounces in a single day from No. 9
Dexter. On No. 10 defter it is only six
inches to bed rock. From thia claim
"Going 1o see the footbult same tomorrow?"
"Wo. My cousin is going lo show mo through his slaughter house Instead.
Charlrs Thompson took SCO from a single
pan. E. M. Walters got as high as $I*2o
to the pan from No. 5 Dexter.
"Two men took out $6)0 from the beach
Aug. 24, and young Hyde, a son of former
Congressman Hydo. of Spokane, mid his
three partners, washed $2,100 in four days
from the beach. 1 could cite instance
after instance of the richaeS3 of the beach
and creek claims of Cape Nome. No one
can imagine the great wealth that lies
along the Cape Nome beach. Anvil City
is the center of the richest camp on the
face of Ihe earth. This is no idle boast,
for I say without exaggeration that there
is more wealth there per capita than in
any ether city in the country. There are
more men walking around Anvil City with
JI.COO in gold dust in their pockets than
in any other city I know of. Not a man
there but who is making n great deal
mere than wages, and there are many
who are taking out fortunes daily."
J. G. Fritz, a merchant and miner at
Anvil City, pronounces it the greatest
mining camp in Alaska. There are four
creeks, on each of which are claims pay.
ing from $50 to $100 a day per man. Two
of these creeks are Snow Gulch and An
vil, known to be as rich as El Dorado,
of the Klondike. There are fourteen
claims on Anvil Creek, each claim being
1320 feet long, with a pay streak much
wider than that of El Dorado. The
fourteen claims on Anvil are equal in
length to forty-two at Dawson. Dexter
Creek is very rich, but short of water.
The claims on the '■ latter creek are be
ing worked by rockers, by reason of the
scarcity of water, with results running
from $80 to $100 a day per man.
Cape Nome is decidedly a summer
sluicing proposition. The beach for thir
ty miles is now being worked with
rockers. Men are making in this man.
ner at the present time from $10 to $30
a day, and frequently a man will strike
a streak that will pay him $100 some
days. Fritz says there is hardly an
idler at Nome now. Wages are $1 an
hour and board, and men are hard to
get at that. Charles Simpson, formerly
of Spokane, made a little easy money
at Cape Nome. lie purchased eighteen
reindeer on the Siberian coast, giving $2
a head for them. Loading them in a
little schooner he and his partner
brought them to Cape Nome and sold
them for $450 a head. The deer averaged
300 pouiicis when dressed. The meat was
sold to the miners.
E. A.Abbott, long a resident of Char
ter Oak, 10., is back from Cape Nome.
"I saw," he says, "Anvil City grow from
100 huts and cabins on June 22 to a town
of 500 places of residence at the time
I left, Sept. 2. There were 140 modern
dwellings completed and in course of
