Too Many People Looking for Nuggets—Beach is Poor, but Creeks Rich—The Proverbial '• Fool and His Money"—Poor Mail Distribu tion —Fear that Nome will be Very Unhealthy from Want of Drainage and Sanitary Provis ions—Wages Low in the Mines, About One- Half of Last Year. Ed. Lund writes the Oregonian, from Nome, under date of July Ist, that the familiar motto of two months ago " Nome or Bust," had then been changed to "Home or Bust," and that nearly everybody seemed to he as anxious to get away as they had been to get in to the swim northward. A blessed thing, he declares it to be, that only 2,500 milts of pleasant ocean voyage on a commodious passenger steamer separates them from " the happy home they left behind." All the pick-up-nuggets-on-the-beach fel lows, the silver-spoon fellows, all the good-job-at-home fellows and those witli delicate health are disappearing fast, and it is to he hoped they will be better and wiser people in the future and appreciate home comforts and good prospects more than they ever did before. But this is nothing new; it is only a repetition of the history of every mining excitement since the days of '49 or long before, and this same thing will occur again at certain periods long after the bones of the present generation have moldered in their graves. How many blasted hopes, shattered fortunes, how much suffering, disease and death have fol lowed in the tracks of all these mad rushes for gold history, will never re cord. These features are soon forgot ten, but the bright side of the ques tion, the big strikes made, the sudden rise to fortune and fame by the few, the very few, lucky ones will stand out prominently and tickle the ears and imagination of the adventurous of all classes and ages. I have no doubt that a good many of the disappointed home-comers will publicly declare the Nome excitement to be a swindle and a fake; probably they have done so already. The trouble is, that if there had been gold in unlimited quantities in Snake and Nome Rivers, and all their tributaries, and if the beach had been twice as rich as it was reputed to be, there would still not have been enough to satisfy all or to give all a fair return for their trouble and expense in com ing here. The fact is, that everybody pinned too much faith on the beach, expecting to be able to take out a good day's wages with a rocker any where, but the beach so far has yield ed little or nothing; it was worked out last summer and fall. And then, so far as I can learn, it was not nearly so rich as it was reputed to be. It was only in certain few spots, that it yielded rich, in other places only fair day's wages; but more generally it did not pay at all. The storms of last winter tilled in all the holes that were prospected last summer and fall, and now people are going over the same ground again, and the result is failure for the majority. An immense lot of machinery has been brought in for working the beach, and the result of these enterprises will not be known for some time yet, as very few of them are in operation yet. At least, I have not heard of any favorable results from beach-sluices aod dredgers so far. These implements will be oper ated at numerous points along the beach from Oolofnin Bay to Cape York, so it is fair to presume that the beach will be given a thorough test this summer, and its fate settled for ever. To find the real and only reliable source of the fame of the Nome dis trict, we must go out to the creeks, to Snake and Nome Rivers. Here is where the gold is. The mines on some of the tributaries of these rivers, especially Anvil Glacier, Dexter and Snow Gulch, will, under favorable conditions, astonish the world with their enormous yield. Last year, lack of water and lack of labor and materi als greatly retarded the development of many of the claims. Still Anvil Creek, in two months' time, yielded $750,000 last year, and it is a fair esti mate to say that this amount will be more than doubled this year. Anvil Creek is now the Eldorado of Western Alaska; but experienced mining men claim that other creeks only lack de velopment to make them equally great gold producers. Taking this in consideration, it is not to be wondered at that at present there is not employment for one-tenth of the people here or, I should say, for one-tenth of all the people who want to work, for there are a good many who don't want to work. After this place has been drained of all its super fluous labor and ail the mines start up full blast, I expect to see some lively times here. Wages in the mines are only half of what they were "Hew to the Line, Let the Chips Fall "Where they May." last year, the mines on Anvil Creek only paying $5 and board, and it is very doubtful if there will be any in crease during the summer. Consider ing the expense and the shortness of the season, this is hardly enough to justify a man in coming up here to work for wages. A man having steady woik in the States at $2 per day is better off where he is. The new Nome City water-works are now under construction and will he completed in about a month. This will supply the town with pure water from Moonlight Creek, a little tributary to Anvil Creek, about six miles out from town. The promoters of the scheme are Dr. Lane and the Pioneer Mining Company. The pipe is made of redwood staves, heavily banded and laid on top of the ground uncovered. At present the water sys tem of Nome City consists of a num ber of pumps stationed at certain points in the city, where water is sold at 5 ceuts per bucket. Dr. C. D. Lane will shortly com mence the construction of a narrow gauge railroad to run over the tundra out to his claims on Anvil Creek. The distance is six or seven miles, over an easy grade. Great complaint is heard every day about the postoffice facilities at Nome. They are entirely inadequate for a town of this size. If you want to get your mail you have to take a day off from your work (if you have any), bring lunch along with you and place yourself in the rear end of a line half a mile long. Then if your patience don't give out you will get there some time in the afternoon. No blame, however, is attached to the postmas ter, as he is doing everything in his power to facilitate the service with the means at hand. A night shift of clerks is employed and the office is kept open till 12 o'clock at night. A free delivery is established for the business part of town. I heard yester day that a large new postoffice is to be constructed at once. It is feared that Nome City will be an exceedingly unhealthy place this summer, no sanitation or drainage whatever beiug provided for. Several cases of smallpox and typhoid fever are already on record. If no proper sanitary provisions are made for the town the situation is likely to become very serious later on when the rain sets in. Like all wild, woolly mining towns, Nome abounds in places where the fool and his money part company. You will find all the modern devices for fleecing the prodigal miner, from the tinhorn games and two-bits-in-the slot machines to the sirens who will work you for drinks at $1 apiece. And the miner, rough, ready and generous, as he always is, is easy game every time. It is surprising to see how anx ious some people are to get rid of their money, apparently just as much so as others are to make it. The other night when I took a trip around to some of the principal saloons, I found in one of them six drunks stowed away in the corners and on the music stand, reminding one of a miniature battle field. They were surely having a rat tling good time and they were entitled to it, for they had paid dearly for it. If you walk through the streets of Nome of an early morning you may see dozens of these human beasts scat tered around on the sidewalks, lean ing up against beer-barrels, grocery boxes or anything. Nobody pays any attention to them. Everybody is busy attending to his own affairs. Who are going to help such people? No body, for they don't want to be helped. A dirty, half-finished, gold-intoxi cated, " get up and grab," harum scarum town—this is Nome City at the present time. Some day a fire will come along and wipe this whole Babel off the earth and then a better, healthier, neater and more substantial town will be built in its place, which will be fitter for man and beast to live in. EMU. KOPFELMEIER, a rich old miser of Albany, who died recently of starvation, left SIOO,OOO, which was found in a gunnysack bidden between a couple of straw ticks on which he slept. He had affiliated with the Re puplican and Democratic parties alter nately, during his life, but was always turned down by each. In his will, which was found in the gunnysack, he left the money to be divided equally between the Republican and Demo cratic State central committees to be used in the coming presidential cam paign, and he expressed a hope of being able to witness the scrap from on high- Portland Mercury. IT is estimated that at any given time, in Germany alone, 1,300,000 per sons are afflicted with consumption and 1,200,000 in America have it at all times. Professor Hirsch pro nounces it emphatically a disease of all times, all countries and all races. OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, JULY 27, 1900. "THE MAN WITH THE HOE." Bryan's Interpretation of a Poet's Plea for Humanity. The following is an article on "The Man with the Hoe," by William J. Bryan as published in the New Y'ork Journal: It is not strange that Edwin Mark ham's poem entitled "The Man with the Hoe" created a profound sensa tion. It is a sermon addressed to the heart, and its lesson is not limited to any nation, race or clime. It voices humanity's protest against inhuman greed. Tbore ia • majestic sweep to the argument, and some of the lines pierce like arrows. Is this the thing the Lord God made and gave To have dominion over sea and land; To trace the stars and search the heavens for power, To feel the passioua of eternity ? • « * » Through this dread shape the suffering ages look; Time's tragedy lain that aching Btoop; Through this dread shape humanity, betrayed, Plundered, profaned and disinherited, Cries protest to the Judges of the world. • • • • Is this the handiwork you give to God? How feeble in comparison, have been the answers to it. The poem deals with the condition, the cause, the remedy and the warn ing. The condition is set forth in the lines: Uowu all the stretch of hell to its last gulf There Is no shape more terrible than this— More tongued with censure of the world's blind greed- More filled with signs and portents for the soul- More fraught with menace to the universe. It is not an answer to the indict ment to say that the poet selects his type not from the middle classes, but from the lowest level. He is dealing with the mill, wiiich takes in as raw material the man made in the image of his creator, and, if it is allowed to complete its work, turns out as the finished product— A thing that grieve* not and that never hopes, Sometime it is a tyrant who oppres ses for the benefit of himself, his fam ily and the warriors upon whom lie re lies to enforce his authority; some times it is an aristocracy, which gathers in the fruits of power and throws upon the masses the burdens of government; sometimes it is a plu tocracy, which openly exalts money and debases flesh and blood; but everywhere it is the same brutal spirit which invigorates the brotherhood of man and violates the commandment: " Tbou shalt love thy neighbor as thy self." The extremes of society are being driven further and further apart. Wealth is being concentrated in the hands of a few and that tendency is on the increase. At one end of the scale luxury and idleness breed effem inacy ; at the other end of the scale want and destitution breed despera tion. Civilization cannot be measured by the refinements and enjoyments of the rich. The toilers who produce the nation's wealth in time of peace and constitute the nation's strength in time of war, must participate in every forward movement of the race. In fact, they are so important a factor that the real advancement of the race is measured by their advancement. Improved machinery and inventive genius have multiplied the product power of the individual, but the pro ducers have not received their share of the increase. The capitalistic class and the speculating class have enjoyed and are enjoying too large a part of the proceeds of labor. What is the cause? Who made him dead to rapture or deipair? The literary sycophants who strew rhetorical flowers in the pathway of the successful, without inquiring into the methods employed for securing success, complacently throw the re sponsibility for failure in life upon God, or nature, or upon the man him self. Is it the fault of God, or of na ture, that children are driven into fac tories at so early an age that their bodies are stunted, their minds dwarfed, and the strength and useful ness of future generations lessened? Is God or nature responsible for the laws which permit this impairment of the man-power and woman-power of the nation? The labor organizations have done much to mitigate the evils of child labor and to shorten the hours of adult labor, but what en couragement have they received from those who favor government by in junction, oppose arbitration and de nounce as disturbers of the peace all who criticize existing conditions? Is it the fault of God or of nature that our tax laws are so madqand our tax systems so administered that the poor man pays more than his share of the taxes and the rich man less than his share? Is God or nature responsible for a financial system which raises the pur chasing power of the dollar in the hands of the money changer, while it increases the burden of debt to the man who owes and decreases the value OPPRESSION GOD OR NATURE. of property in the hands of the wealth-producers? Is God or nature responsible for a paper money trust that makes the people at large the victims of private individuals intrusted with the control of the volume of currency? Is God or nature responsible for private monopolies which corner the markets, extort from the people and disburse the proceeds among the hold ers of watered stock? Is God or n&t" r o So blame for tho substitution of force for reason and might for right in government? Is God or nature responsible for the nation's throwing upon the many the burden and menace of militarism and conferring upon the few the benefits of exploitation? LARCENY BY LAW. The United States Supreme Couit has coined the phrase, " Larceny by Law," and, compared with ordinary stealing, this form of theft may be called grand larceny; and yet, whole sale wrong-doing is never tsken into account by those who assume that all who are poor deserve their poverty, and that all who are rich earn their riches. If one employs another to commit robbery he is as guilty as if he commits the act himself; does it change the moral character of the act because the injury is done indirectly instead of directly? Does it change the moral character of the act be cause the injury is done through legislation which he has secured, or, in the absence of some righteous law, tbo passage of which he has prevented? The accumulation of wealth by honest means is to be encouraged, but the line must be drawn between honest wealth—the reward of brain service or muscle service rendered—and preda tory wealth which defies the law or turns government itself into a ma chine for the plunder of the public. The iudolent cannot expect plenty under any just form of government, neither can the vicious expect happi ness, but under bad laws those who work the hardest may enjoy the least, and those who labor least may have the most. But the remedy: How will you ever straighten up this shape. Touch It again with immortality? Give justice to every creature —jus- tice in the methods of government, justice in the distribution of the bur dens of government, justice in the makiug of the laws, justice in the exe cution of the laws; justice first and charity afterwards. Justice will not eliminate distress entirely, but it will greatly reduce the number of those who come within the description of the poet. There will still be some poor, some destitute, some desperate. Generations of vice will transmit tendencies toward vice which must be reformed. Some will be victims of unavoidable misfortunes—they will need the aid of the more fortunate. The orphan will need a foster parent, the widow will need a friend, the aged without rela tives will need a benefactor; the weak must be encouraged by the strong; those who fall must be lifted up. LOVE VERSUS GREED. Love is the antithesis of greed; it will inspire both justice and mercy. Love, and love alone, can regulate the relations between man and man and plant a hope in the breast of every child born into the world. When every man made wrong is remedied there will still be suffering enough to enable every person to prove his love toward God by mani festing his compassion toward his fel lows. But the poet presents also a warn ing: Bow will the future reckon with tlili man? How answer his brute question In that hour When whirlwinds of rebellion shake the world? How will it be with Kingdoms and with Kings— With those who shaped him to the thing he Is When this dumb terror shall reply to God After the silence oi centuries? In monarchies, revolution is the only weapon of the oppressed. Under our form of government wrongs are righted by the ballot, but even here the longer a necessary reform is de layed, the more disturbance its ac complishment causes. Victor Hugo has described the mob as " the human race in misery." We cannot afford to mAke people miser able. Life is secure and property rights are respected in proportion as the people find life worth living. Happy will be the lot of all when each member of society makes to so ciety a just and adequate return for that which he receives from society. Happy will be the lot of all when each member of society recognizes the in dissoluble tie that binds together the highest aud the lowest, the strongest and the weakest, the richest and the poorest—when each member of society aids according to his ability to give back to the poet's subject: —the upward looking and the light; Rebuild in it the muaic and the dream; Make right the immemorial infamies, Perfidious wrongs, immedicable woes. A NEW FOREST PEST. DESTROYS MORE TIMBER THAN THE MILLS USE. It Has Made Its Appearance in the Forests of Dakota—A Specimen of the Pest on Exhi bition has Maintained Lite Two Months Hermetically Sealed in a Phial—lt Bores Under the Bark and Apparently Poisons the Sap— One of the Most Dreaded Pests Yet Reported to the Department. After years of effort and constant vigilance the General Land Office, through its field of officers, has taken up and successfully stamped out to a great degree, the forest depredators who worked such devastations in the great forest areas of the West. By strict regulations the human depreda tor was suppressed, if not exterminat ed, and by an adequate force of forest officials the fire depredator has been held in check, and the damage wrought by this element has l>ecn reduced to the minimum. But now conies a new depredator, which has been called to the attention of the Land Office. It is the insect or worm depredator that is making great inroads into the forests of South Dako ta, and laying waste great areas of val uable timber. This worm is a new ar rival and little is known of him. The first time the officials in Washington were informed of his presence and his deadly operations, was a few weeks ago, and since then they have been study ing his anatomy and his ways in the hopes at least of giving him a name nud a classification. At the present time there are at least two townships iu the Spearfish River district of the Black Hills Forest Re serve which has been visited by this pest, and fully 50 per cent, of the trees over that area have been killed, and a half of those remaining have been in fected and will die. Foresters in that region have become greatly alarmed at the deadly work of the unknown dep redator. They say he began his opera tions west and southwest of Deadwood and is now moving in a southeasterly direction, with no signs of stopping, and it is feared that if the advance can not be checked in some way a great part of one of the finest pine forests in the country will be destroyed. From what little information is ob tainable, it is supposed that this worm grows from an egg deposited by some species of a bark beetle. The egg is deposited under the bark, and there it hatches. The resulting worm is a com mon, long, white worm, sometimes an inch or an inch and a quarter in length, white throughout, except its head, a bright, shiny brown. He seems to pos sess marvelous vitality, as was shown by a specimen which was sent to Wash ington. Commissioner Hermann, of the General Land Office, now has, on his desk in a phial, tightly corked up nearly two months ago, one of these worms, which since has had neither air nor nourishment, except possibly such air as could find its way through an ordinary cork, and at the time of this writing the worm is alive and more active than when he reached Washington. Samples of pine from the Spearfish district were submitted with the worm to show the effect of his bite. It seems that when he attains the requisite strength, he sets out to bore around the tree, under the bark, apparently living on the sap. It is his bite, or the substance which exudes from his mouth, which proves fatal, for wherever he bores his way he leaves a trail be hind which soon discolors the wood, the taint penetrating to the heart of the the tree. Wood which is normally white, turns a steel grey and loses all its sap and strength. It is at once ren dered unmerchantable, by discolora tion and loss of strength. One worm will in time kill a tree, but it is gener ally found that each dead tree has an army of little white pests. Another remarkable feature connect ed with this depredator is that he may infest a tree and poison it completely, and yet his presence not be made man ifest for months. He is only discov ered by borings through the bark, that appear at intervals, and these are seen only on close inspection. Outwardly the tree remains unchanged for a long time, the first signs of destruction be ing the discoloration of the foliage, which gradually assumes a faded brown appearance, not easily detected at first, but yet peculiarly distinctive, inasmuch as it is not the same fading that accompanies the natural death of the tree. After the foliage has dead ened, the tree stands, weak and totter ing, until a wind strikes it and then from sheer lack of strength it falls. The poisoned pine cannot withstand even a light wind, so much has its strength been impaired. Commissioner Hermann, in speak ing of this terrible depredator, says: " This worm, whatever it may be, is one of the most dangerous destroyers of forests that has ever come to the attention of this office. Our knowledge 'of him is decidedly meager, but every effort is being made to learn more. Specimens of the worm and his work ings have been sent to the experts at the Agricultural Department, in hope that they might be able to define the pest and prescribe some remedy for his poisonous bite. Until we have that information we scarcely know how to act. At this time this pest has gained such a foothold in the South Dakota forests that it will be a difficult matter to head him off. It looks as if the in fected sections of the forest would have to be burned in order to extermi nate, not only the worms, but the bee tles as well, but that is an enormous undertaking and could not be accom plished in toto before the close of the next summer season. However, the damage wrought is so great that heroic measures will have to be adopted to save the forests. At the present rate at which this worm is working, it will be only a matter of from five to seven years before the entire forests will be gone, and those Black Hills forests are too valuable to be lost under any cir > cumstauces. "We have just been informed that trees in the Spearfish district began to die from unexplainable causes back in 1897. The first Bteps towards exter minating the pest will of course, be taken on the southeastern extreme of his path of destruction, in order to head off any further advance, inas much as he seems to be moving in that direction. We have had no re ports of similar destruction in other sections of the country, and in this section it seems to l>e only the pines that are affected to any appreciable de gree. The other trees seem to escape almost entirely. We aro anxious to learn more of this newly discovered tree destroyer, and have asked our spe cial agents in South Dakota to give us all possible information as to his operations and the effects of his de structive bite, and hope to soon be able to take some steps which will tend to completely and hastily put an end forever to the ravages that are now being worked among the valuable pines of South Dakota." A Free Choice. Many anecdotes are related of John' Randolph, of Virginia. One night,) when traveling through the " Old Do-1 minion," he stopped at an inn near the forks of two roads. The inn keeper was a fine old gentleman, and, knowing who his distinguished guest was, he endeavored during the even ing to draw him into conversation, but failed. But in the morning, when Mr. Randolph was ready to start, he called for his bill and paid it. The landlord, still anxious to have some conversation, tackled him again. " Which way are you traveling, Mr. Randolph?" " Sir?" said Mr. Randolph, with a! look of displeasure. " I asked," said the landlord, " which way you are traveling?" " Gave I paid you my bill?" " Yes." " Do I owe you anything more?" " No." "Well, I'm going just where I please. Do you understand?" " Yes." The landlord by this time got some what excited, and Mr. Randolph drove off. But to the landlord's sur prise, in a few moments he sent one of his servants to inquire which of the forks of the road to take. Mr. Ran dolph still being within hearing dis tance, the landlord yelled at the top of his voice: " Mr. Randolph, you don't owe me a cent. Tako whichever road you please." THE National Watchman says: The price of every commodity controlled by trusts is rapidly advancing. Many articles not the product of a trust but composed of raw material that is un der trust control have also greatly ad vanced. But farm products such as wheat, corn, oats, barley, mutton and tobacco do not share in the advance. Our prosperity should be labeled: •' For Trust Only." Basra the jf ll* Kind Mwr Overdid It " I understand she married him to reform him." " That was it. And she did the job so thoroughly that now he doesn't like the kind of woman lie liked when he married her and is trying to get a divorce." No wonder the judgment of the house on pensions should be ques tioned when it pensioned a man for " total disability" who draws salaries aggregating $3,000 a year for work performed. To that the house added $72 a month. S. C. COSGROVE, of Porueroy, is a candidate for the nomination of Gover nor on the Republican ticket. WHOLE NUMBER 2,104. ACCIDENT AND HEALTH INSURANCE.
