DAWSON, Nov. 27.—A recent arriv
als from Hie Twelve-Mile district,
North of Dawson, report that thou
sands of caribou have been crossing
the hills and vales of that region of
late, says the Dawson News. For
many days they swarmed down the
Little Twelve-Mile and across the
Hay Meadows and covered the hills
between Kentucky Point and Laptne
Ridge, which is on the wagon road
which follows the Guggie Gulch from
Dawson to the Twelve-Mile Power
When they came to the big flume
many could not cross, but wandered
along the flume untl they found a
high trestle where It crossed a gulch.
Then they marched in single file
under tlio trestle, down the hill, and
crossed the valley of Twelve-Mile,
and struck Northerly along the North
fork or main branch of the Twelve
Mile. The most of them crossed on
the eleventh, the day peace was an
nounced, and the denizens of the re
gion celebrated by bagging enough
caribou that day to fill their caches
all Winter. Hilly Hill, the Twelve
Mile foreman for the Yukon Gold .
and Carlson came In with the newsj
of the big Trek. The caribou were
in the vicinity for two weeks.
