ONE YEAR IN PRISON
DAVID MURRAY, CONVICTEDO OF
BURGLARY, IS SENTENCED BY
PRISONER IN HURRY TO START
Court AooomntodMte, and Says the
Words That Send the Young Man
to the Penitentiary.
David Murray, "terror" of Dublin
Gulch, as he was known to many, must
spend a year in the state penitentiary as
a result of being convicted of having
robbed the residence of Mrs. Emma Ward,
6o_ Summit street.
He was convicted in Judge McCler
nan's court yesterday afternoon, the jury
fixing the punishment at one year.
It developed later that Murray offered
to plead guilty to the charge, providing
the cotnty attorney would agree to have
the punishment limited to one' year, but
the offer was declined.
Mrs. Ward, the principal witness for
the state, gave strong testimony against
Murray. She was positive in her identiti
cation of him, despite rcptated attcmlpts
of coutilei for the defense to trip her up
in her evidence.
She made a good wiltms a and a long
drawn-ouit cross-examinatiion ;appearsi to
have more fully convincedl the jury thlat
she was telling the truth.
Patrick Murtphy, for whom Murray
worked in the L.owlands about the time of
the robbery, July IN, last year, was to have
testified for the defense, but he w:a called
by the state.
IH-e said he had taken Murray to the
Lowlands, July 7. and haIt broLught him
back about to days lantr, or thel 17th.
This would admit of Murray performing
"te roliery in the early dIawn of thie 17th.
The jury soon returnedr a verdict of
guilty. The young man askeI for an im
medlate ssentence and Judge Mccl.cr.na

RICH PLACER GOLD IN

Reported Find Made Basis of Investiga

vI'r'IAIt. TO TIlHE INTEt MoI'NTAIN.
\\'ashlington, April Jo.-fThe recently re
p,rtlel discovery of a rich placer fold field
Ini the Tanana drainage Insin, which seems
ti, be authentic, thomgh it still lacks ofli
ci;al confirmation, has drawn attention to
tlis part of Alaska. The region of this
allegedl discovery is not yet surveyedl,
though the geological survey has malde
,ivc-ral -xloUr;aSions in the vicinity. These
cuxplora:tions are a part of a tiesneral sys
intm of preliminary surveys wh.wh the geo.
I.lgical survey has been carrying on itn
A:\laka as rapidlly as possible during the
1.4.t five year s.
A reIlwrt enltitled' "A Reconnaissance in
the White and 'Tanana River liasin," by
Alfred 11. Brooks, cont:ains the results of
a reconnalssantlce mate in 18H)8. It de
s'ribes brietly the geographly. geology.
clinmate and tmnber of the region, and, so
far as the ctlnhater of the investigation
would permit, deals with the mineral re
.fnirces. l'he party left the coast at Ska:g
Hay ilt MarCh, 1818, and ma-nb its way in
land fotr alzout Ii,) miles wiit sle.ls; then,
after waiting until the ice on the river
Iroke tip,, it continuedtl down the L.ewes
andl Yukon rivers in canoes to tle tnoutlt
of White river.
That river had never lefore been as
cinlded in btilats biecause of its tmad. rush
ins, current. After six weeks of hard la
Ibr the party succceled in dragging canoes
and supplies up White River I s5i miles,
I here a iportage was foiund to Tanana
Saters. The downlstreaml trip to the
Iiiutlh of the 'Tanana, at joiirney of about
(..to miles, occupied a month. The party
Ifially reached the Yukon after a canoe
journey of i,6oo miles.
A second report Iy Mr. Brooks deals
with the Uplper Tanana basin and is en
title,I. "A Reconnaissance from I'yramid
Iharbor to Eagle City, Alaska." This also
treits of the geography, geology and min
eral resources of the region traversed by
the pasty. It is based on a journey made
with spack horses from the coast of
Pyramld Harbor, Southeastern Alaska, to
the Yukon, near the international boutnd
ary. The trip, which occupied about three
imonths and was made on foot, aggregated
about 6oo miles. So arduous was the jour.
ney that only five of the si horses that
started with the party survived the trip.
lThe chief difficulty with which the party
h;ad to contend was the many turbulent
rivers that had to be crossed. Three boats
were built by the party during the course
of the summer.
A third journey was made by Mr.
TBrooks through the Tanann Basin during
the summer of tooe. This extended
through to thle Yukon fronm C'ook Ihlet,
by the I.ower Tanana Valley. Tl'he report
oi this expedition is now in preparation.
