More Goods Coming for the
American Yukon
U TANTALUS
Steamers Pass Going Up and
Down
The American interiorbound ship
ment* of freight coming north via
Skagway this year are much larger
than they were last year. The large
shipments to the Tan ana are largely
responsible for this increase, though it
is partly accounted for by the action of
the army department in sending goods
this way to Fort Egbert. It is believed
that nearly all of the American Yukon
points will get more of their goods via
Skagway than ever before has been the
case.
One shipment received a few days
ago for Tanaca contained contained
more than 900 packages and was valued
at more than MOOO. Many shipments
valued at from a few hundreds to #5000
or 16000 are being received.

LOOKS GOOD
Koyoknk Slowly Bat Sarely
Improving
An old time Dawsonite writing of the
Koyukuk county in the Dawson Mon
day Bulletin says the cleanup this
spring will exceed that of any season
in the history in that camp. He says:
"The cleanup of the winter's dumps
should yield between 175,000 and $ 100,
000 which is a far greater amount than
any previous winter's working. This,
together with the work that will be
done this summer, will bring the total
output to a sum far in excess of any
previous year."
In speaking of prices of that country
he says:
"Bacon is selling at 35c, butter at
$1 50 per roll, rice and sugar 25c, flour
#12 per hundred, oat meal and cereal
25c, canned fruit 50c, canned meat 50c
and 75c, and other commoities in pro
portion. These are the prices at Bet
ties, at Coldfoot prices are somewhat
higher.
"Wages at the mine are $1.25 per
hour or $12.50 per day."
