I : Worthen Lumber;; Mills : Lumber and Shingles:: Juneau, Alaska ?1111 H III III 11111 ill ill m - LITTLE WINTER WORK ; IN CHISANA DISTRICT A mining engineer, known nil over ! Alaska, who went to tho Chisana to > make an examination of that country, writing from McCarthy, under date of March 24, Ju8t after returning to that place from ChiBana. to a member of Tho Empire editorial staff, gives the following comprehensive statoinent of conditions in that camp: "There Is very little more known of the Chisana district at the present time than there was last fall as many of the claim holders went out in the fall and no further work has been , done on their claims. Many, in fact ? the great majority of the claims in the ! district, are above timber line and 1 as most of the men at work are pros ! pectors their wood for thawnig has ; to be 'necked' up to tho claims two or ! three miles and It takes tho umbitlon | out of a man pretty fast when he has ! to hook himself onto the sled and drag | his timber to thaw tho ground. Add > ed to this Is the fact that a large por J tlon of the ground Is thawed near the ? bedrock and after the prospector has ; sunk his hole for days or weeks he > runs Into water and Is driven out. It | is probably safe to say that over half of the owners know no more of the value of the ground than they did when they commenced work. The val ue of the claims will not be known till they commence sluicing next summer. "Most of the work Is being done on the tributaries of Johnson and Wilson creeks though prospects have been found on Trail and Bow with their tributaries and on the Beaver which flows into the White river. Bonanza and Rhyolite flow into Johnson and a number of pups whose names I do not know. Shamrock, Coarse Money, Little Eldorado, and Canyon flow Into Bonanza. Fine Money and Gold Bot tom are pupa flowing Into Coarse Mon ey with Snow Gulch, Bug Gulch, Pen sive Pup, Ptarmigan and Skookum pups on Little Eldorado. The main tributaries of Wilson are Glacier, Big Eldorado, and Alder creeks with Sar j gent. Paulson, Dry, Chicken and Gold Run flowing into Glacier . "The town of Chisana Is several miles from the creeks but a little set | tloment called Bonanza has sprung up at the Junction of Bonanza and John son. However, Chisana will be the main town as It 1b most favorably sit ! uated as regards freight, wood and water. It Is well laid out and has several hundred log cabins as well as several stores. Freight from McCar thy which is by far the best route yet found averages about twelve cents a pound and most of the camp sup plies are comparatively cheap consid ering the distance they have to be transported. Flour sells at about $20 a sack, bread fifty cents a loaf, meals $2, and drinks fifty cents each. "There is a mail service handling the first class mail twice a month though this should be improved as the people In the district number about five hundred and there will bo more in the summer. It would also be a great benefit to the camp If the road commission had the funds to keep several men at work on the glacier as portions of the trail over it arc very dangerous and should be carefully guarded. There have been a number of horses lost in the crevaces and there will be a great many more unless the trail over the bad portion of the gla cier is improved." ARRIVING ON GEORGIA.
