Big Rush for Gold. Seattle, Nov. 7.—According to S. II. Ewing, a prominent business man of Nome, who arrived on the steamer Senator today, a general exodus of miners is expected from the Seward peninsula to the new gold field on the Iditarod as soon as cold weather sets in. Navigation on the rivers has al ready closed, and hundreds of men who are anxious to go to the new diggings arc waiting for a heavy fall of snow so that the trails may be broken and the long journey can be made overland. The reports received at Nome and the other Seward peninsula towns concerning the Iditarod have caused much excitement among the miners, and the stampede promises to eclipse the famous rush to the Klondykc. The fever has spread to Fairbanks and the Tanana district, where many prospectors are pulling up their stakes and heading toward the Iditarod country.
