An Interesting report has reached the
State Department from United States Con
sul Smith at Victoria, B C. The report
sajs in part:
"Tho Indications are that there will be
a great rush to Cape Nome next spring,
something like that to the Klondike in the
spring of lS9b. It is eident that num
bers will go there from Victoria and this
proince in preference to either Atlin or
the Northwest Territorj. The transpor
tation companies here and on the sound
are all aclhelj engaged in preparing
steamers for the lone trip.
"The distance from Victoria to Capo
Nome is 2,500 miles, entirely by water.
But, notwithstanding that fact, the trans
portation companies hao already booked
all the passengers that can be carried on
the first trips, on every vessel that can be
secured. At a recent meeting of represen
tatives of the companies it was computed
that 63,000 persons desired to go to Cape
Nome as soon as possible.
"The reports that had been circulating
last season in regard to the gold discov
eries at Cape Nome were quite gonerallj
disputed here, the opinion being that the
Atlin and Klondike countries were more
promising and also easier of access But
the last two steamers from the North
effectuallj dispelled all uncertainties, tho
passengers bringing with them indisputa
ble evidence that all -along- tne beach In
the vicinity of Cape Nome gold in paving
quantities can be had for the digging
"A number of these men have called at
the consulate, exhibiting specimens of the
gold, saj ing they dug it on the beach, near
the water's edge, that men with onlv hand
shovels and the simplest and rudest of pans
cleared from $50 to $100 and even $300 per
day, while sometimes a clean up of from
$1,000 to $1,500 has been reported. Nug
gets worth from $300 to $400 were found
near Anvil Creek, and It Is believed $300,
000 to $400,000 were taken out of Snow
Gulch last summer, one man, It is said,
took out $190,000, while another claims still
"Hverj one of the men who came down
expressed his resolve to return in the
spring some even engaging return passage
on the steamers on which the came down
According to their statements, the gold
does not extend to a great depth, five or
six feet being as low as auj have jet found
'pajing dirt "
"Complaint was made by some of the re
turning miners that claims twent acres
each which stretched for miles around
and virtuallv embraced the whole shore
from Cape Nome to Cape York, some forty
miles distant, had been staked This, how
ever, has been much changed by the deci
sion of Commissioner Hermann, which la
understood to mean that no land below or
diuarj high tide can be disposed of to in
dividuals or corporations, but is open to
the public to operate on, that the right to
dig in these tide lands is as free as tho
right to fish in the adjacent waters, and
that anj bod j ma wash gold out of tho
sand between high and low water, while
no authorit can give an person an ex
clusive right to do so, so that the land
cannot be obtained b corporations or ab
dicates "Some apprehenblon is felt that there
ma be a clashing of interests on that
point, and it Is generall desired that tho
Government establish regulations and
have sufficient police to enforce them.
Auxiet Is expressed here regtrdlng the
establishment of a port of entr at Capo
Nome. Captains all agree that there is
practicall no anchorage or harbor at tho
cape Itself, but that at Port Clarence dis
tant onl a few miles, there is a haroor,
safe and commodious.
"There are now between 5,000 and C COO
people at Nome Cit, Anvil City, Cape
York. Port Clarence, and vieinlt The
buildings are. of course, of the most tm
porar character A large number are on

CENTREVILLE, Md , Jan 20 A few
weeks ago a bell was placed in position in
St. Luko's Protestant Episcopal Church,
Queenstown, which has an Interesting hls
tor. This bell lb a gift from the late
William Henry DeCourcy Wright, of
"Blakeford," and bears this inscription:
Suncta Maria I)e los D.uIcm,
Matir Nostra, Defend nas
A fulgere ct tempesta Amen.
Maria Joseph San
Augustine ora pro nobis,
Retingo Dinso, Pr Or.
Sccundd vej hi Pr. Fr. Pedro,

All which inscription Is said to moan:
"Hoi Mary, of the gifts, our mother, de
fend us from lightning and tempest.
Amen Jesus, of mankind the Saviour.
Mary and Joseph, St. Augustine, pray for
us 1746 Recast, being provincial of the
order for the second Ime, the Priest Pe
dro, of St. Augustine." On the bell, too,
around its outer run, is the inscription:
"Presented to tho Protestant Episcopal
Church, at Queenstown, by William Henry
DeCourcy Wright, December 25, 183r "
The church in which the bell was hung
was served by the Tranciscan Order, of
which Tray Pedro de San Augustine was
provincial for the second time The bell
has mucli silver in it, hence its sweet,
ringing tone Mr Wright brought It from
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Investigation has led to the conclusion
that it was originally used in Portugal in
a monastery, and that when much church
property was being confiscated by the
Crown, after the bitter, blood struggle
with the church power, this bell, with oth
er church property, was carried by the
priests to the New World, to Brazil, where
It seems to have been recast. Sixty ears
elapsed last Christmas Day since the bell
which hangs at St Luke's Chapel was pre
sented to the congregation b Mr Wllliim
H. DeCourcy Wright, of "Blakeford " This
bell, when first hung in its third home,
was sild to have as tine a tone as an In
Mar land, but as time wore on it lost its
sweetness Through the liberalltj of Mr
DeCourcy Wright Thorn, grandson of Mr
W H DeCourcy Wright, it has been re
cently recast b a Baltimore firm and

NEW YORK, Jan 20 The latest gift of
Miss Helen Gould to charitable institu

So far as known there is onl one per
son in the United States who is engaged
in the manufacture of opium The name
of this individual is Jose Cardoza, and he
owns a popp plantation of considerable
extent in New Mexico He manufactures
the crude or unadulterated opium upon
which no internal revenue tax Is levied
in this country, and tho virtuallv pro
hibitive tax imposed on imported smok
ing opium of $6 per pound, $1 per pound
on the crude, gives to Mr Cardoga a large
share of the trade in this countr.
Mr. Cardoza. who is a Mexican b birth,
has been engaged in the manufacture of
opium for a number of ears, having once
owned plintations In Brazil and the Argen
tine Republic, but the tmall tax levied b
those countries upon the Imported product
caused him to transfer the field of his in
dustr to this country. There are ro
licensed manufacturers of prepared smok
ing opium In the United States, and prac
tically no revenue has been derived from
this source, but a number of persons have
been arrested b revenue officers within
the past ear for the illicit manufacture of
smoking or prepared opium. A common
device of those who endeavor to elude the
tax is to collect the ashes from pipes vvhich
have been smoked and, by mixing one part
of the ask with three parts of the crude
opium form a paste by the addition of
water, which makes a ver excellent
smoking opium Whenever an arrest of
persons engaged in the illicit manufacture
of opium is made, the raw material end
utensils used by them are seized and
forfeited to the United States
