8an FnANctsco. July yi. On tho steamer
Walla Wnlla, which arrived to-day from Seattle,
was Harry Fitzgerald, theatrical manager, who
went up to Juneau sorcn months ago to look
after an opora house. When the Klondike boom
struck Juneau nearly overy ono left for tho
mines. Fitzgerald said:
"Tho ton is almost dead, but It will soon be
filled up again, tor thousands of men are rush
ing there to fit out for tho Yukon, and only half
or less will get across Chllkoot before next
spring. Hundreds of tons of provisions arc piled
at Talya, and tho supply of Indians, burros, unil
horses is already overtaxed. Tho Indians uro
ch rgingmorc now than ever for carrying sup
plks over the pass, and hundreds of men are
wondering how they can get into the gold tlclds
before tho winter snows. There will soon be
ore prospectors at Talya and Juneau than will
ever bo able to get Into the Yukon this rear un
less they import burros. Thin If they do not
reach the lakes und rivers soon tbe-lrewlll de
lay them again, and the bardsnlps will be so se
vere that misery and ueath will result."
Frederick F. Nowell of tho Nowell Oold
Mining Company, which operates quartz mines
on llcrner's Bay, Alaska, was a passenger un
the Walla Walii from Victoria, He suw tho
grand rush from the !-ound ports to the Yukon
by way of Talya. and it led him to bcllevo that
the excitement would result In great loss of lite
in tho arctic region tho coming winter.
"The thing is i.elng overdone." be said, "but
the people will not know it until too late. The
rush from Seattlo and other places up north Is
tremendous, and I expect four or five thousand
persons are trying to make their way over
Chllkoot. The Queen carried 500 to Juneau un
her list trip, and all thu other steamers uro
cairylng as many ns can gut aboard."
Nowell was sorry to see such a stampede, for
be believed the rich placers would soon decline,
like most other placer mines, and lea o hundreds
of men In distress.

A serious question for Klondike argonauts to
consider Is that of sheltor from the elements.
In the mad rush for tbe new gold fields little
attention has been paid to this, and many hun
dreds of pioneers will find themselves in tbo
bleak regions with plenty of money and victuals,
but Insufficient protection from tbe cold
weather. From accounts that havo come from
Alaska and British Columbia, thoro are mote
man there skilled In digging and bookkeeping
than In carpentry, and more picks and shovels
than axes and planes. With the arrival of
part ies that have lately, gone to the headwaters of
the Yukon, there w 111 necessarily bo an immense
demand for houses, for without them the miners
will freeze. This matter Is beginning lo rccelvo
attention in San Frunclsco and Seattle, and
preparations are now under wuy to provide gold
seeders with houses.
Within aweok negotiations hare been con
ducted between parlies In San Francisco und
this city for tbe shipm.-nt of entire bouses to tho
gold regions. Tbe housos will be constructed in
sections, so that they may lie carried easily In
boats up thu Yukon or packed on sleds and car
ried through the rouph country In baggago
trains. A New York linn which makes n speci
alty of such houses has received orders for as
mny as can be sent thore.
"ThodeniHiidfor houses In the Klondike Is
going to create a big boom In our trado." snld a
representative of the llrm yesterday to a Surf
"It will bo necessary for us to get right to

Uainv Lake City, Minn., Julv 30. A gold

several largo nuggets wcro found. Ono. whleh

The consideration Is said to have been $30,000.
It Is said that there Is fully 9200.000 worth of

There has also been a placer find. Frank
