|| Substance of the Information Derived
From Letters Received in
l| Washington Lately.
jj letters received in Washington. from
| i the Hudson bay country indicate that
J i winter set in considerably earlier than

Ice ir. the bay and straits is reported
worse than in many years. The two

and the Beothic. on reaching the upper
settlements were leaking like sieves,
' the former having eleven feet of water
in her fore hold. The local supply
; steamer of the Hudson Bay Company,
the letters report, had great difficulty in
j reaching some of the posts, because of
the unusual ice floes and fields' encountered
during August, and September 15,
when the letters were mailed, the company's
new steamer Nascoupi had not
reached file head of the bay. fears being
expressed for the vessel's safety.
' Should the steamer fail to reach the settlements,
it was stated, great hardship
will he experienced, during the coming
I winter, as many of the posts were short

Prospecting Parties Sighted.
)Ths letters report the presence on the
bay of a number of prospectors during
the past summer, among them several
parties searching for diamonds. None of
i the gems was found, according to the
! reports.
A big government survey party was at
! Rupert House during the summer,
locating a road from there to a point on
the new transcontinental railroad, a distance
of 250 miles. Clyde Ladd of the
Carnegie Museum of Natural History at
Pittsburgh, with an assistant and party,
i have been at Rupert House and have
! made a fine collection of birds and small
i animals, the party penetrating as far
' J porth as Fort George, on James bay. It

i sionary on the bay to the Eskimo and
Indian tribes', has left for England on a
year's furlough, after twenty years' continuous
service in the far north.

Tiie letters add that while waiting for

| | HONEY THAT NO ONE CLAIMS.
ji Millions Without Claimants Locked
in British Banks.
I From London Tit-Bita.
Twenty millions of Unclaimed money in
the coffers of British banks?derelict gold
which nobody owns, and which the banks
are naturally pleased to take care of!
Gold more than sufficient to pave every
square foot of Cheapside with sovereigns.
The sum total may be exaggerated, but
make a liberal deduction and you still
have many millions to which no rightful
owners make a claim. There is no bank
in the whole length of Great Britain (or
elsewhere) which has not its lists of these
bank balances that may be said to go
a-begging. Some are for trivial sums,
I scarcely worth the trouble of pocketing:
scmie are for amounts running in<o thou(
sands.
Some years ago, when Mr. Goschen's
I conversion scheme was in the air, it was
, found that the Bank of England alone
had nearly 11,HUB of these dormant ac[
counts. Forty of them had more than $50,000
apiece to their credit, one balance was
written in six figures?007.990. The total
q t tlin KaI t Am a f thft Ia??? Uf * ? ????
Illl Ut HIV wunwiii VI HJC IV/IIK, liSl was OW,?
if4S,875. Tills amount was very largely
made up of unclaimed dividends on government
stock.
I Scottish banks have, it is said. $45,000,000
of tliis overlooked gold. English
banks at least double this sum. How
does it come there? And what becomes
of it?
It seems inconceivable that so much
money, for all of which there must have
been owners at some time or otfier, should
be thus lost to sight. A score or more of
f simple causes account for the seeming
5 ,!' impossibility. A man may, for private or
I business reasons, have accounts with
] more hanks than one. He dies, his exI
editors know nothing of any but his usual
' banks; the balances at the others remain
unclaimed.
He may die abroad, or disappear, leaving
no clue to his banking affairs; he
may even forget that such and such an
account is not closed. In these and many
similar ways?mostly the result of carelessness?money
is left in the hands of
bankers to swell the dormant funds.
For seven years the hankers keep the
accounts open, prepared to pay over the
balance to any one who can prove a title
to it. This term expired, they regard the
forgotten gold as their own. Five million
dollars of such ownerless money went
to build 1-ondon's splendid law courts.
The city, it is said, has more than one
magnilicent bank building reared from
tlie same handy material. The Hank of
England, one learns, provides pensions
for clerks' widows out of such a fund.
But, whatever becomes of it. these millions
of "mystery gold" are always growing,
fed by man's carelessness or forgetI
fulness, their secrets hidden awav in
Ill thousands of musty bank ledgers.
