The Episcopalians aro building a place of worship in Skagway. The Canadian government is putting up a customs house at Caribou. The old Birch creek district has been making a good showing this year. 400 head of live hogs were recently shipped through to the Dawson market. The first snow fall of the season visi ble in Skagway occurred on the 22ud ult. The A. P. A. cannery at Chilkat has paid ?30,000 in cash to the Indian fish ermen this fall. Geo. A. Brackett, the Atlin mining ! operator, will spend tho winter in Washington, D. C. The golden stream continues to pour | out from the Klondike through the spigot at Skagway. Operators in the Atlin district com plain that the high freight rates virtu ally prohibit miniug in that section. Gold Run and Spruco creek miners in the Atlin district are prepariug to : drift on their properties this winter. Dick Lowe, an old Juueauite, bought a lot in Dawson before tho boom for $.300. lie recently sold it for $12,000. The Atliu Claim says that the Muir heacl brothers have bought the Edina group of claims on Spruce creek for $1000. William Conley has sued the P. & A. R. & N. Co. for $1200 damages for goods lost by tire caused by a spark from a j locomotive. The census shows a population of 3053 souls in 78 settlements on the Yu kon delta and south as far as the Kushkokwin river. The hook and ladder companies of Skagway are talking of disbaudiug in the event of the city dads refusing them compensation. A genuine salmon, 22 pounds in i weight, was recently caught in Lake Atliu; the ouly one of its species ever 1 caught in those waters. $23,OCX) in Atliu gold arrived in Skag way the 22nd ult. consigned to the Se attle assay office. A similar amount is sent out every few days. Robert Wright and J. A. Cleveland have sued L. R. Stacy and wife for the possession of 40 acres of land at Dyea, | on the ground of prior and better right. There is a movement on foot to sup : press gambling in Dawson. It is said to be on foot, because that is the slowest | method of procedure known to that ? country. The new strike in the Porcupine is 1.0 miles above Kluckwan, in British terri tory, recently presented to the Cana : dians with the compliments of Secre J tary Hay. The miners of Porcupine are kicking against the order consolidating that miniDg district with that of Skagway. Their kick is a righteous oue and should j be heeded. Milton A. Newell is supposed to be lost somewhere in the broad expanse of : Alaska's mighty domain. His wife, 995 LeMogue street, Chicago, is anxious to | hear from him. The Gleaner Mining and Milling Co., operating near the now well known En gineer group, has placed a small block J of stock on the market, for develop ment purposes. Mrs. Dougherty, wife of Jas. Dough : erty, better known as "Nigger Jim," one of the richest Klondike miners, passed through Skagway the 22nd ult. enroute to Dawson. Patton R. Nelson, who arrived in Skagway the other day direct from the headwaters of the Tanana, says that country is all right. The pay dirt runs from 15 cents to $1 per pan. Christensen, the Bennett scow build ; er, is paying his men 80 cents an hour, and thinks the scale will be advanced to SI. He is turning out a scow a day, but has difficulty in securing enough lumber to supply his demands. The Yukon Flyer line is advertising 1 for 200 scow men to make the run from White Horse to Dawson at $3 per day and board; the C. D. Co. wants 100 men and several other concerns are adver tising for men in lesser numbers. Now Portland, not to be outdone by San Francisco, proposes to put on a through line of steamers to Alaska ports. This probably means the resur rection of that ocean going patriarch, the Geo. W. Elder, which has sailed the stormy seas, lo! these many years, as Portland's entire fleet, one and insep ? erable, now and, perhaps, forever. Geo. A. Brackett, the fat her of a num ber of lusty sons who are developing j Alaska, was in Skagway recently from his hydraulic works on Willow creek, Atlin, says the Alaskan. Mauy stories have been told of the gold that has been taken out this season by Brackett and his stalwart sons, but Brackett, pere, says, "We have taken out onough, perhaps, to pay expenses. 1 am inclin ed to think that the output of Atlin creeks will bo larger this year than last. I have myself seen several nice clean ups from Boulder and McKee creeks, j Harrigan took out a nugget of 29 oun 1 ces from the latter creek and the other day a man brought in from Boulder creok a nugget of 49}* ounces. Thero have been great changes in Atlin; where I live in Discovery we have the water laid on just as vou have in Skagway. A man named Pullman, who has a claim just back of me, is taking out an ounce per day to the man. Pullman has a very handsome flat nugget worth perhaps tweuty-flve or thirty dollars \ j that is peculiar in its formation. The one thing that I see against tho coun ! try is the high rates of transportation. The Comet SAMPLE ROOM LEMP'S BEER "Thero's nothing too good for The Boys." ED. CASEBOLT,.
