Northern Gravel Bebs Will
Yield SlOO.fKKVM) a Year
Wilson Foster, the quartz king of
the Klondike, has an abiding faith in
the richness of the Yukon and Alaskan
gold fields and he says nearly all the
gravel beds of the great interior coun
try would pay a large profit if milled.
Mr. Foster said:
"King Solomon's mines of antiquity,
the Australian gold fields, the Johan
nesburg reefs of South Africa, and the
gold fields of the United States, will
dwindle into insignificance with all
their millions and billions of gold,
when compared with the Yukon gold
"In this great northwestern gold belt
we have not only hundreds, but thous
ands of miles of rich gold bearing grav
el beds and ledges, which have been
sufficiently prospected and developed
to make this a conservative statement.
"These gravel beds are composed of
the ground up to(>s of ledges, dykes and
deposits traversing and intersecting the
many rivers and ereeks of this terri
tory, which extensive deposits carried
gold, silver, lead and other precious
minerals. Nature, by her own meth
ods, has ground down the tops of these
deposits with the aid of water and has
dei>osited the precious metals through
out and underneath these gravel beds
by gravity.
'?The r. suit of this tremenUous pro
cess of erosion, which must have been
going on for thousands of years, con
fronts us in the shape of millions and
billions of tons of pay ore, already
mined, laving on the high benches and
bars on either side of the rivers and
creeks in the vast ore bins of nature,
there stored and awaiting the advent of
concentrating and stamp mills for the
milling and reduction of this ore acd
the extraction of the gold and other
precious metals therefrom.
The milling of gravel beds in Au
stralia and other countries is done at a
cost of 20 cents to 40 cents per
ton, and I maintain this can be done in
the Yukon and Alaska mines, with the
aid of water power and gravity, at a
cost not to exceed 30 centS to 50 cents
per ton of gravel.
"There are very few gravel beds in
the Yukon but that will assay from 91 '
to #3 per ton of gravel in gold and sil- ;
"I predict that within a few years
machinery for this method of milling
gravels of the Yukon and Alaska will
be installed on a large scale and the
output of the Yukon alone will con
tinue to increase till it overruns the
$100, 000,000 mark per annum from this
one method of milling, to say nothing
of the mining and milling of ledges and
the placer mining on the creeks.
"The vast and inexpensive water
power to do this work will be secnred
from the Klondike, Yukon and Indian
rivers, as well as from some of the lar
1 ger creeks, and the plants will be run
by pelton water wheels for about six
months each year, during the summer
"The (fravel will not need to be thaw
ed but will thaw out under the rays of
the sun and will be ground sluiced by
water and gravity down to the immense
crushers of the milling plant.
"No power on earth is cheaper than
water delivered to a mill by Its own
gravity. No dynamite, caps, fuse,
drilling or shooting will be required.
"Immense dividends are sure to fol
low the working of gravels by this
method in the Yukon and Alaska."
Mr. and Mr#. Allen J. Walker will

Dawson Passengers Complete
? Hard Trip Oat
Whitehorse, April 28-A W. P. & Y.
R. stage arrived here at 12:15 o'clock
this afternoon, completing the trip
from Dawson in seven days and two
hours. The trip was a very difficult
one. Transfer had to be made across
all streams, none of which had ice that
would hold up a stage.
J. D. Henderson and F. L. Murphy
were passengers on the stage, which
carried nine sacks of mail.
The last stage to leave Whitehorse
got away yesterday morning with a
full load of passengers.
Can Only B?k
From tne present outlook, it appears
that the re-appointment of John O.
Brady as governor of Alaska is assured
While the support given Brady in
Alaska was rather weak in spots, yet
Alaskans may just as well become re
conciled to the fact that they are not
it. The support, of the missionary
societies back in the Kast is worth
more to an applicant for a federal job
in Alaska than the personal endorse
ment of every white man in the entire
district There may be people who
will wonder why this is, but Alaskans,
who are acquainted with the style of
operation carried on by missionary,
societies, will never wonder. They
know. There is only one thing to do ?
grin and bear it? at the same time keep
on begging for relief.? Douglas News.
