It^la a comprehensive document and re^^views in detail Ihe work in the vari^^ous districts. It says as to the Forty^Mil^- gold district, that in the latter^part of 1887 Franklin gulch waa^struck and the tlrst year the creak^is estimated to have produced $4,000.^Km i riace it has been a constant^payer. Thediscovery of Davis creek and u^stampede from Franklin gulch follow^^ed In the spring of 1888. In18^1 gold mining In the int. riot^received a great. Impetus. The event^of lxsrj was the discovery of Miller^creek. In the spring of 18!i:i many^new claims were staked and it is es^^timated that 80 men took out ilUO.OflO.^Sine, then Miller creek has been the^heaviest producer of the Forty Mile^district, and until recently, of the^whole Yukon. Its entire length Mes^m British possessions. The output for^1893. as given by the mint director,^for the Alaskan creeks, all but Miller^creek being In the American posses^^sions, was $198,000, with a mining pop^^ulation of 19*. The total amount pro^^duced by the Yukon placers In 1S94^waa double that of the previous year.^In 1x9a the output was doubled again. FortyMile district in the summer of^1896 is described in the report as if it^had seen Us best days and unless sev^^eral new creeks are discovered, it w ill^lo^e Its old position. The Birch creek^district was last summer in a flour^^ishing condition. Most of the gulches^were- then running, miners were run^^ning on double shifts, night and day,^any many large profits were reported. OnMastodon creek, the best pro^^ducer, over SO nines were at wink,^many expecting to winter in the gulch.^As to hydraulic mining, the report^says: Some miners have planned to^work this and other good ground sup^^posed to exist under the deep coveting^of moss and gravel In the wide valley^of the Muiiimoth anil Crooked creeka^by hydraulicr.. the water to be ob^^tained by tapping Miller and Mastodon^creeks near the head. It will be sev ^^eral years before th scheme can be^operated, hecaus* both gulches are^paying well and will continue tu do so^at least five years. FollowingIs the report on the Klon-^dyke district: With Up* announcement^of gold here, the w inter of 1896-7, there^was a genuine stamped* to the new^region. Forty Mile was al.uost desert^^ed. The M men spent tn^ winter on^the Klondyke. in the gulch-s and at^the new town of Dawson. The more^Important parts of the district are on^Bonanza and Hunker creeks. Accord^^ing to latest information 100 claims^have been located up to Jan. 1. IS97,^about half as many on Hunker cr^ek.^There is plenty of r.iom for muny mure^prospectors and miners, for the gulche*^and creeks which have shown goon^prospects pread over an area of 700^square miles. The estimated Alaskan^gold production for 1896 made by the.^Spurr report Is 11.400.000.^I The reuort points out the difficulties^in the way Of speedy development of^the countrv. First, the climate, with^short summer season, and a Linn, cold^winter. Prospecting Is done In th^^winter more and more and the miners^ate thus able to begin work with the^lirst spring thaw. WhateverAlaska may be In the fu^ture it is not now self-supporting agri^^culturally. Moose and caribou are vari^^able In quantity, abundant at one timo^and disappearing frets the region for^12 months at a time. Ten dollars a^day Is the general wages paid, in the^winter the price for labor if $1 to $8^per day of six hours. Many times tht^miners have been at the point of star^^vation and hardly a winter that they^have not been nut on a short ration^basis. I'niversal suffrage is given and^all have an equal vote.
