Already pros pectors are pouring in preparatory to jthe now confidently expected Spring rush to the new gold fields In American Herrltory, while merchants of all kinds (re hurrying hither to make money out bf the' fortune hunters. There is a gen eral air of prosperity, for even-body tiasmore or less money, grafters not bains In evidence here as they are at ea, Skaguay and Dawson.

These hylaws may be al tered or amended by a two-third major ity of a. necessary quorum for such a vote at any regular meeting after two weeks' notice of such intention previ ously given in writing. From this It may seen that Juneau 13 no longer a mere mining camp, but a thriving, busy town, with a future be fore it. It has every qualification for the future metropolis of the North west, being equally accessible by land or -water. Besides, it is the nearest port to the mouth of the Copper River, the Golden Gate of the Great North west, which premises to be the princi pal approach to the gold regions in the Spring. Old miners are making ar rangements now to go up the Copper River in February or March, and strike thence to the new fields along the Chil lyna, White and Stewart rivers, from which have come within the past few weeks further stories of rich finds that bid fair to throw the Klondike into the shade. Louis C. Frey, of Newark, N. J., is now In the Copper River country at the head, of an exploring and prospecting party. Mr. Frey, who Is a veteran pros pector, says in a letter to a friend in this city: "The Copper River Is nearly four hun dred miles long, draining over 29,000 square miles, and by a portage (road) of seventy-five miles at its upper end. can be connected with the Tanana River, which flows into the Yukon. One can also reach the - Yukon from the Copper River .by ascending the Chillyna River, which empties into the latter stream, as far east as Scolai or Copper River Pass, which is only eighty miles long. At the other side of Scolai Pass is the head of navigation of the White River, which empties Into the Yukon midway between Fort Sel kirk and Dawson City. 'There will be three routes next year via the Stikine River, via Chilkoot Pass and via Copper River. The last will be the easiest and shortest. Sev eral navigation companies are prepar ing to run steamers from Seattle, Sit ka and Juneau to the mouth of the Copper River, and there is a' strong prospect of a railroad In the Spring. 'The crazy rush over that danger ous Skaguay Pass should be stopped, by Government interference, if neces sary. On my way from Seattle to Sit ka soon after the Dawson boom was started, I talked with thirty men buxind for the Klondike. Oriiy Hour of them knew anything about mining; the bal ance were Ignorant of that science, as well as of the art of taking care of themselves. They will have to face rough times. No man should come to the Northwest without a proper sup ply of gold, grub and grit." That Juneau will be crowded to its utmost capacity long before April is acknowledged by all who have visited this place. Olds & Orton, proprietors of the Ocidental Hotel, have leased three new buildings, to be used as annexes, and contemplate erecting an enormous structure so soon as sufficient building material and labor can be obtained. Prominent merchants are increasing their orders for the Spring by several hundred per cent., and the municipal government has recognized the need of an adequate police force. Juneau -already has electric lights and most of its big buildings are steam heated. It is not yet oversupplied with theatres, politics and French millinery, but those necessary adjuncts to metro politanism will probably come In good time. Meanwhile, the citizens of Ju neau say to the people of the United States: "Come, if you want to;, but if you can't come, don't apologize; there are others." Above all, don't come if you can't live without luxuries. Juneau is a live town, but it isn't little, old New York, REDSKINS WON'T RILL. THAT IS, UNLESS THE WHITES FIRST SHED BLOOD. Charles Ehrieh, Who Has Just Re turned from the Copper River Country, Says the Indians Are Peaceable and Will Eight Only in Self-Defense He and His Partner Carried no Firearms While There They Found Much Gold and Staked Oft a Couple of Quartz Claims Region Rich in Ore. PORT TOWNSEND, Sept. 29. From Charles Ehrieh, a young man who has but recently returned from the Copper River country, your correspondent se cured an interesting interview (relative to that much talked of section. The impression has prevailed .that the Cop per Rlver country was inhabited by hostile savages, who looked with jeal ous eyes upon the advent of the white man on his stamping ground. Mr. Eh rieh dispels this false impression by saying that the Indians are peaceable and will harm no one If let alone and treated fairly by the whites. Two men were killed .there last Sum mer, but they themselves were primar ily responsible. It seems the two men hired some Indians to do packing for them, and when the time of settlement came they disagreed as to the amount due and a quarrel followed, in which one of the white men shot an Indian. The next day about a dozen Indians came down in a body and killed both of .the- men. This unfortunate affair cannot be ascribed to any hostile ten dency; the Indians simply followed a custom prevalent in all tribes a life for a life. Carried No Firearms. Mr. Ehrieh and his partner had no firearms at all, and had no occasion to use any, other than on the game which abounds in that country moose, hear, grouse, ducks and geese being plenti ful. Mr. Ehrieh smiled broadly when told of a proposed plan, which has been a topic of conversation of late, of forming a company cf some three hun dred determined men, heavily armed, going to the Copper River and expect ing to have to fight the Indians before being allowed to prospect for gold. He eald the idea was absurd and evidently originated with men grossly ignorant of the Indians of that country. Young Ehrieh was closely ques tioned in regard to quartz and placer mining on the Copper River. At the mouth of the river some rich quartz claims have been located. A mining expert representing an Eastern syndi cate was there during the Summer and offered one man $16,000 for his claim, but the offer was refused. The ore is free milling, runs as high as $80 to the ton, and is found in well-defined ledges. Found Plenty of Gold. Mr. Ehrieh and his partner staked oft a couple of quartz claims of? promise and then proceeded up the river in an Indian kyack in quest of placers. They went up as far as the Kellner River, prospecting the beach as they went. The sand was found to be impregnated with flour gold, which could easily be mined with proper machinery. It is the opinion of the miners now on the Copper River that the head waters of the Kellner River, which originates in the Klondike country, ..will be found to be as rich' as the Klondike, but no pros pecting has ever been done there, or any other place on the Copper River to any extent, and .the real" value of the country as a mining district is yet un known. An old hunter and miner named King, who has lived on the Copper River for the past seventeen years, says he has been to the headwaters of the big river, and reports rich finds. He sent for two young relatives who Mved at Los An geles, and they were passengers on the Queen,, bound for that region. Mr. Ehricbsays there are about sev enty white men now on the Copper Riv er, principally hunters, trappers and fox farmers, the latter being quite an important industry. It is his opinion that at the mouth of the river quartz mines of immense value will be found, and on the tributaries, near the head waters, placers rivaling the Klondike win be unearthed. He himself will re turn this Fall, his partner being al ready there, and together they Will fook for placers. Could Stand Ill-Health, She Kissing is unhealthy. geLefa ffet sick. N, Y, Journal ONE OF THE RICHEST. CANADIAN MOUNTED POLICE HAVE MONEY TO FREEZE. Officer Churchill Arrives at Seattle with 10,000 In Gold as the Re sult of Two Years' Service He Is Worth Altogether Between IJSO, OOO ami $100,000 Stomaohs Will Touch Backbones at Dawson City This Winter, He Thinks, as There Surely Will Not Be Enough Pro- (. "Visions Drln Us, tflOO a Round. SEATTLE, Wash., Sept. 29. A mem ber of the wealthiest police force in the world arrived in the city last night with his $10,000 in gold as the result of two years' service oh the Klondike in the ranks of the Canadian amounted police. S. R. Ohurchill ds the name of -this lucky officer, who Is worth anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000. He brought down a sack containing somewhat over $10,000 for spending money. He was not proclaiming his iuefc from the masthead and the faot that he had money was overlooked by the press representatives who boarded the steamer yesterday. Churchill Is not the .richest of the mounted policemen toy -any- means. Some of the members of Dawson's po lice force are worth a trillion dollars; all of them have over $20,000. When the strike, on Bonanza was made Capt. Constantine, in charge of the police, allowed his men -to stake out claims and file locations. They were not per mitted to work jbhena, hut hired It done on lays. As a result fhe following claims ate owned by policemen: S. R. Churchill, 53. above discovery on Bo nanza; James Slurry, one-half of claim 34 on El Dorado, 11 foelow dis covery on Hunkers Creek and 53 above on Bonanza; J. Brothers, 37 above on Bonanza; A. Ward owns 38 above on Bonanza and an interest in 60 above; A P. Zeller has sold his claim on Bo nanza for a large Bum. Others own ing claims or portions of claims, none of which are worth less than $20,000, are Policemen Pinkerton, Thornton, Webster, Sinclair and Gowler. Hasn't Had Enough of It. Mr. Churchill commenced spending his little stake last night hy buying a complete outfit from top to bottom. He has (a claim on Bonanza Creek, as is mentioned In the list above, and will return to look after his interests. He was at police headquarters all morn ing talking over the Klondike with De tective Cudihee. He said: "It will be a wonder to ime if more than half the people at Dawson City keep their stomachs from touching their backbones if they remain there throughout the Winter. There surely will not be enough provisions. Even last year, when there were not nearly so many people and considerably more provisions per capita, there was suffer ing. Even the mounted police had to go on short' rations. Well, I'm glad I'm out of it; if it is the richest camp in the world, dt may also prove the dead liest. That Weare Affair. -' "I was forty-six days coming out, which breaks the record. It happened that I was a passenger on the Ill-fated Weare, which was hard aground on the Yukon flats thirty miles below Cir cle City. Going up two years ago we were forty-six days, but that time we were caught dn the freeze-up, which was nobody's fault. This time it was de cidedly somebody's fault. The steamer was coming down river one morning with the captain and an Indian pilot at the wheel, when suddenly in going around a sharp turn we ran aground, thIndian pilot having mistaken his channel. For seventeen days we eat around and swore at each other. For ex ercise we waded around in the Yukon, as the water was only six inches deep where we ran aground. The steamer was very light and stuck In the middle. They pried her bow off into deep water, and at the same time pushed her stern hard and fast on the sand bank. The Healy came along and -we gat started again. The accident to the Weare was caused by the ignorance ofthe captain, who did not know his business. It was a five days steam to St. Michaels, but it took us eleven days to make it the way we came, only steaming a few hours a day, and tying up at night. "Dawson is undoubtedly a hot town. Drinks are $100 a round and the steamers have been carrying more whisky than provisions. There Is death from starvation staring them ' in the face for this very reason. There was no caribou last season, and .there prob ably will be none this year. There are a few moose around Dawson, but no birds and few fish."

In the races at PittsfleJd, Me., a few weeks ago there were four of them, but the better of all f them, was Miss El liott. She Is only 21 years old, and is the very antithesis of Iw6on N. Fuller, the old gentleman driver of New York city. Mr. Thaller leans forward and seldom takes his eyes from his team. Mies Elliott lieans back as easily as though she were in a boudoir chair, with each little foot poised on the bar in front of the seat. She seems to know by instinct just whatthehorse is doing; and looks about ier with , the utmost unconcern. "I can feel what a trotter is doing through the lines, just as a helmsman can feel his craft hauling on the rud der," says Miss Elliott. The race won by the woman driver was the first ever trotted on a circuit track under national rules with women as drivers. Miss Elliott won the-.race 'easily. Her opponents were Mrs. Sarah Elise Crosby, of West Brewster, Mass., SO years old; Mrs. Hattie E. Meader, of Wioslow, aged 26; Mrs. Mary Wood cock, of Elpley, 31 years. , 'HERE AND THERE.

Windfalls That Came Unexpectedly to Those Who Needed Them. While most people find it very hard to acquire even a modest competency, others are more lucky, and to them for tunes come without even the asking. Several such instances have occurred of late years, some of them of an in teresting character. It was only a short while since that a poor ragpicker in Birmingham suddenly found himself a man of wealth. By dint of working from dawn till late at night he had been in the haibit of making the not very exorbitant income of $2.50 ' per week. One morning he heard from a firm of solicitors in London, who re quested him to call, when he would learn something to his advantage. 'Ha found that a long lost brother, who had made money in Australia, had recent ly died there, leaving him the sum of ?40,000. At Tamworth, England, a tobacconist has unexpectedly found himself the heir to a baronetcy. For some time past he has been in receipt of a small sum a week, having served as a eer- geant in the Suffolk Regiment, but find ing this sum inadequate he took a to bacconist shop at Tamworth, and was apparently contented with his lot, when he awoke to find himself a baro net of the united kingdom. A schooner which went ashore off the American coast with 1,200 tons of coal, being abandoned by her owners, was sold for $70. Some 400 tons of coal had been got out of the hull when sudden ly the vessel slid off the rock and sank in deep water, only, however, to float again the next morning and drift with the tide right into port. It seems that sufficient coal had rattled through the holes in her bottom to let the hull come again to the surface with soma 300 tons of coal still in it. As the ves sel then stood she was worth $3,000 or more to those who bought it for $70. A couple ot lucky domestic have late ly come into possession of a consider able sum of money through the death of their mistress, an old lady of eighty five, who left them her entire fortune. The sum to be divided is $120,000, and it is bequeathed to them In recognition of their long and faithful services, on of them having been twenty-five and the other eighteen years with the lady in question. The effects produced by suddenly ac quired wealth are sometimes startling in the extreme. A suburban Parisian, who lately inherited $80,000 from an elderly aunt, at once began to look about for some outlet for spending the money quickly. At length, the craze for building speculation seized him, and he built houses wherever sites were obtainable. He went on in thia way for some time, when his mind be came unhinged, and he was found ona day walking around his newly built houses, firing shots from a navy revolv er at imaginary enemies. He was thereupon arrested ,and placed in aa isvluna. Boston Traveler, , MUST BE TRUE. -: The Stories About Women Who Have Been Cured By LYDIA E.
