THE INVESTOR
"The true und the false speak the same
language."
The New York Financier waxes eloquent
upon the eub.loct of the "North Sea Bub-
I We," as It terms the excitement which is
now at fever heat over the Alaskan gold
» fields. It says:
"From all Indications, this country is
about to enter upon a period of folly un
» paralleled since the bursting of the Bout,
sea bubble in England, the tulip Insanity ln
Holland and the wild Schemes that pre
> ceded the downfall of John Law in France.
"The 'Klondike crazo,' unless checked,
promises to become a serious problem
r How many people are preparing to go to
the Alaska gold fields this spring and sum
-4 mer it Is impossible to say, but the wide
spread preparations under way lead to the
belief that the rush will be something
a unprecedented. Speculators who have been
booming transcontinental lines, on the the
ory that the Klondike rush will net enor
» mous earnings for these systems, have
placed the probablo number of passengers
at 100,000. but this Is a gross exaggeration,
%4 since the steamship Hystems leading from
the Pacific coast to Alaska could not begin
to carry so many people in the limited time
« during which navigation Is open. But even
if It were possible to handle this number of
? passengers, 1b It within the bounds of rea
son to say that the Northern Pacific stock,
lor instance, ts worth »10,000,000 more than
It was last year, simply because the road
■ win secure a percentage of this travel?
ihe averago rate for ono passenger from
New York to Seattle Is J«7. without deduct
\i Ing for the heavy cut that is bound to
come. Ono hundred thousand passengers
mean, therefore, $6,700,000. Adding as much
more for freight, the total sum is less than
* $13,500,000. B\it 75 per cent of this goes for
operating expenses, leaving net profits of
something like $3,375,000. Divide this be
y tween four transcontinental lines, and the
\ proportion for each is $843,750, or about 1
I j per cent on Northern Pacific stock. The
( western roads, it should not be forgotten,
receive only a proportionate amount of this
I i Um ' Yet Nor,hcr n Pacific securities have
I been sailing skyward on Klondike antici
.'* pations. Clearly the insanity is widc
reachlng.
No man who Is In his right mind will
. » ,arl for Alaska with less than 1700 in his
possession. If 100,000 people were to seek
their fortune In the Klondike lields, a mo
ment's calculation will show that the gross
V ?- m 2i! nt of money required would reach
j Ji0.000,000, a sum greater than the entire
/ f°i d Production of the United States for
M Wit Assuming that the total emigration
I l!L Bros,,y overestimated and that only 50,
--•00 pasengers attempt the Journey, having
I Bn , average of $500 each, the amount In
. volvcd is $26,000,000. This Is several millions
1 more gold than was produced last year by
the state of Colorado, our richest source
f m mineral values. Does any one inmagine
that the Klondike will yield anything like
tMB sum during the coming twelve months?
Still, if the output did reach $23,000,000, the
Si « aln would be nothing, and the people who
1 rushed Into the new fields would have at
I best only as much money as they brought
with them, assuming that an equal divi
sion was possible. To double the capital—
St'L^ hat is a modest estimate—a yield of
j JSO.OOOOOO would be requfred. Alaska may
l contain that much gold, but it Is as certain
as anything human can be that It Is not
, going to be dug out of the frozen earth
I of the Klondike rfg> t. between May and
1 September next. It |g high time that pub-
I lie attention was directed to the insane na
-7 ture of the coming rush, otherwise intense
I suffering and actual starvation will fol-
I low.
1 The strangest part of the Klondike craze
1 Is the fact that while the whole Arctic re-
I gton did not last year produce over $5,060,
--l 000 of gold, one single county in Colorado
1 yielded , $12.500,000 gold, with total profits
I <>' $$.000,060. Fifteen mines In this county—
I El Paso—paid ln dividends $1,262,995. added
f $1,000,000 to reserve funds, and developed
j and have in sight at least $5,000.000g01d ore.
The January production of the Cripple
\ Creek mines was $",150,000, or at the rate
of $25.33 for every minute of that ttme.
The dividends declared by these mines
last month were $150,000, and the profits
foamed fully $260,00Q, or at the rate
of $5.60 per minute. There are
gold mines in this district paying regular
I dividends at the rate of 28, 33 and as high
I as 42 per cent on the selling value of the
j stock, and many of them could be pur
, chased outright for the money that will
I bo required to see only a small percentage
I of the Klondike emigrants through a short
\ season of four months. We are not boom
| ing tho Cripple Creek gold fields, but we
I point out these facts for the Information of
I those who are determined to engage In the
h gold mining industry. It may be that the
man who goes to Colorado will not make a
fortune, but between that state and Alaska
1 , the chances'are that he will fare Infinitely
; better in Cripple Creek than in the Klon-
I dike. The careful Investor will not touch
i en Alaska gold mining prospect with the
i* traditional forty-foot pole. If he feels that
! • he must buy gold mining stocks, let him
I seek out a legitimate dividend paying Col-
V orado or other western mine, whose man
f agement Is honest and above board. There
| are many such. Up to date Alaska has
I placed few, if any, on the market.
j The press of the United States will per
form an important public service in call
ing attention to these figures.

Conditions Shown by the Dealings on
Wall Street
NEW YORK, Feb. 18.—The tone of tho
speculation was doubtful and hesitating
In Wall street today and large preponder
ance of the day's dealings were in sugar
and tho grangers.
The radical utterances made ln the
course of the debate precipitated in the
senate on the Maine disaster also ended In
distrust In the minds of speculators and
prompted liquidation. Business on the
decline was by far the most animated.of
any during the day.
The Union Pacific, Denver and Gulf se
curities were strong. The bond market
held firm except some of the speculative
Issues yielding ln the late dealings. Total
sales, $4,520,000.
United States 4's coupons were l%e bid
higher and the old 4's regular, the new 4's
and the 6's % higher bid.

Bradstreet's Report
NEW YORK, Feb. 18.—Bradstreet's to
morrow will say:
Favorable features dominate the general
business situation as a whole and few
commercial conditions present themselves
which can be regarded as in any degree
disturbing. Chief among those factors
which, make for continued or growing
strength ln commercial may be mentioned
the renewed tendency toward advances ln
quotations of all staple articles and the
steadiness of prices In other lines where
increases are not at the moment report
able. Perhaps second ln the list of auspi
cious features is the continuance of
marked activity ln nearly all branches of
the iron and steel trade, more particularly
In the central west, where it Is authori
tatively reported over 90 per cent of the
pig iron furnace capacity is ln blast. The
failure of the southern furnace men to
reach a price agreement is, of course, a
depressing feature ln that section, which,
however, finds a counterbalancing factor
ln the Intention to advance prices reported
from Bessemer ore producers. The vol
ume of distributive trade shows an In
crease notably in dry goods und groceries,
at bo many widely separated points as to
warrant the conclusion that spring trade
Is receiving a perceptible Impetus. At the
west iron and steel mills are reported gen
erally busily employed and unwilling to
take orders for future delivery. At Chi
cago 30,000 tons of steel rails have been
sold in the past two weeks.
The bicycle trade Is reported started up
well at the west, but Is still slow at the
east, where, however, the cotton goods
situation is one of hopeful strength, owing
to the Btrength of raw material and the
restriction of production due to the New
England mill strike. As to the strength of
cotton, sugar and rice and the demand
for Iron, all favor the southern trade situa
tion, which is also being helped by the
growing' foreign trade ln cotton goods.
The activity in Alaskan shipments keeps
vessels busy on the Pacific coast and
freight rates are firm. California crop
prospects are not encouraging, as a whole.
Business failures continue to decrase,
aggregating only 269 for the week against
273 last week and 325 In the corresponding
week of 1897.
As above intimated, the price situation
is one of local strength. Compared with
a week ago, not one article of staple use
Is reported lower, although some low
grades of wool would have to be shaded
if sales were made. Prices of nearly all
kinds of grain, but notably wheat, corn
and flour and of most metals, and partic
ularly steel billets, copper, lead and tin
have advanced. The agreement by the
Bessemer ore producers wfll probably re
sult in an advance on the coming season's
output.
Cereal exports tend to Increase. Exports
of wheat (flour included) for the week ag
gregated 3,932,744 bushels as against 3,419 -
000 bushels last week and 2,120,000 bushels
last year. The bulk of this Increase over
last week Is chargeable to large flour ex
ports.
Dun's Review
NEW YORK, Feb. 18.-R. G. Dun & Co.'s
review of trade:
The dreadful disaster to the Maine, much
as it has affected all hearts, has not much
affected business. Only in the stock mark
et, where there was selling Wednesday by
speculators on this margins, but ln no
other speculative market, was an effect
felt, nor in general business. An advance
of 10 per cent ln wages by some Gogebic
mines is expected to be general throughout
the lake regions, excepting the Mesaba
district, and prices of ore from the other
ranges this year have been advanced 15
9** c*nt with an allotment of 6,000,000 tons
outside Carnegie's mines, which betokens
an output much the largest ever known.

NEW YORK. Feb. 18.—The Evening
Post's London financial cablegram says;
The stock market here remains dull to
flat today. Americans rallied at midday,

CHICAGO MARKET
Prices and Prospects of the Trade in
Cereals
CHICAGO, Feb. 18.—It was evident at
the start in wheat trading that the snort
scare, so prominent a feature of trading
uil week, had nearly ail dieu out under the
influence of the heavy dealing during yes
terday's session. In addition the most
important of the early news was nearly
in lavor of the bears and a weak and lower
opening was the inevitable result. May,
tlie closing price yesterday, wnich was
1.04>4, was offered at 1.03% down to 1.03, anu
tho price soon dropped to i.02% or 4%c lower
than the highest price paid yesterday, ln
this decline Argentine news was promi
nent. Argentine shipments for the week
amounted to l,2t>S,uw bushels against 712,
--000 bushels the week previous and 152,0u0
bushels last year. Caule news was also
rather discouraging to holders, both Liver
pool and Paris snowing small declines. The
character of the news, however, soon
changed. A Liverpool Corn Trade News
cable from Rosarlo. Argentine, said that
continued heavy rains did considerable
damage and the market was advancing
with sellers scarce. This caused a cessa
tion of selling here and started a buying
demand, which soon sent the May prices
back to 1.03%. It reacted then to 1.02-fc, but
again advanced, getting to 1.03% shortly
after 11 oclock. Toward_ midday the mark
et became quite strong. New York and
fiOHton reported taking of freight room for
f50,000 busnels of wheat for export to Liver
pool, all of which was credited to Letter.
Several of the large sellers of yesterday,
notably Cudahy, bought quite freely. A
general buying movement was started by
the Lelter freight room engagement, May
advancing to LO4 and July to 8914. At the
close May was bringing 1.03% and Juiy
88%.
There was a large general trade ln corn.
The i Jose was %c lower for May. Market
for oats was only moderately active and
erratic. May closed %c lower.
There was a fair trade tone ln provisions
with the market generally tending toward
lower prices. Sympathy with wheat was
a factor throughout. There was consid
erable profit taking. At the close May
pork was 12c lower; May lard 2%c lower
and May ribs unchanged.

HAD BEEN THERE BEFORE
Poor John Mitchell Held to Answer (or
"Borrowing" Tools
John Mitchell, who was arrested ten
days ago on a charge of petty larceny and
has since been ill in the city prison, was
held to answer in $1000 bonds yesterdoy
afternoon by Justice Morrison. The theft
charged against him was a most urivial
one, consisting ot stealing a can of oil and
a monkey wrench which he declared he
only desired to use for a few minutes
and intended to return them.
After his arrest the officers discovered
that he had once before been convicted of
peUy larceny and this prior conviction was
used against him. He was at once taken
to the county jail.
"Josh" Is a Go
B. B. Langdon, a "sure thing" gambler,
will spend the next 100 days on the chain
gang unless he pays a fine of $100, which in
his present financial condition is Impossi
ble. He was before Justice Owens yester
day for sentence and that is what he got.
The severity of the punishment was de
served and he expected six months. He Is
the man who, while drunk,,, struck a
crippled woman several times ln the face
on Main street because she told him it
was none of his business where she was
going. His defense was that he intended
the blows "as a josh." The court also had
the same intention in giving him the sen
tence, but in the case of the sentence the
"Josh" is a go.
Chamber of Commerce
Major E. F. C. Klokke, chairman of the
committee for the banquet to be given by
the chamber of commerce Washington's
birthday, says that the work of the ban
quet committee is progressing favorably.
Any members who want tickets for the
annual banquet and are not supplied with
them are requested to apply immediately
at the chamber of commerce.
Tickets to view the plucking In the os
trich farm may also be obtained on appli
cation at the chamber of commerce. The
ostrich farm excursion will be held Feb
ruary 22d.
Claimed He Was Bobbed
James Wilson was brought to the police
station last night, gloriously drunk. He
was picked up by the police in an East
Second-street lodging house, where he was
trying to move all the furniture. Not a
cent was found on his person, and he
claimed that he had been robbed of $70
by two women in the lodging house. He
could give no particulars of the robbery.
When the officers arrested him he was
demanding his money of two women. The
case is being investigated.

A MOVE MEANING WAR
IS MADE BY THE CANADIAI
PACIFIC
WESTERN RATES CUT IN TWO
All the Trunk Lines Will Be Asked to
Assist in Fighting the
Canadian ,
Associated Press Special Wire
CHICAGO, Feb. 18.—The Canadian Pa
cific road today exploded a bomb among
tho American competitors by announcing
a wholesale reduction of rates. These cuts
affect business In two directions. In the
first place, the rates from all New Eng
land points to Minneapolis and St. Paul
aro slaughtered; and, again, New England
points and points ln the slate ot New York
have had a blanket rate applied, so far as
all business to North Pacific coast points la
concerned. These transcontinental rates
have been cut almost ln two. The present
rates from tho Atlantic seaboard to the
North Pacific coast are $71.35. first class,
and $07.40, second class. Tomorrow tTie
Canadian Pacific will make these rates
from all points In New England and New
York $40, llrst class, and $30. second class.
Rates to St. Paul will be cut from $29.50,
llrst class, and $2.8.50, second class, to $20,
first class, and $19, second class.
On learning the Canadian Pacific s In
tention in the matter, the Grand Trunk
road at once Invited the Chicago roads to
join It In meeting these rates via Chicago.
They have been importuning tho Grand
Trunk for monlhs to join them in meeting
Canadian Pacllic rates, little thinking that
as soon as such an agreement was effected,
the Canadian Pacific alone, at one slash,
would work such havoc with their reve
nues. If they agree to the Grand Trunk's
request, It will mean the Immediate reduc
tion of the rates from 'hicago to North
Pacific points from $01.50. first class, and
$51.50, second class, to $40, first class, and
$30, second class. Doubtless the Northern
Pacific and the Great Northern roads will
be as anxious as the Grand Trunk that the
Chicago roads should join ln meeting the
rates. Their refusal would simply mean
that they had gone out of the business for
the time being, and that would mean that
the two roads named running west from
St. Paul would get little or none of the
business, because they would have no east
ern connections to take It to them, and the
Canadian Pacific is not likely to give them
any.
A meeting of interested lines has been
called for tomorrow to decide on some
definite course of action, but it may have
to be adjourned to the beginning of the
week on account of the absence of many
of the general passenger agents ln the
east. At a meeting held here today it was
decided to ask trunk lines to assist in fight
ing the Canadian Pacific.
RATES CUT IN TWO
TACOMA, Wash., Feb. 18.—The Northern
Pacific railroad announces a big cut in pas
senger rates to become effective Saturday,
February 19. The rate from Tacoma to St.
Paul, Duluth and points in Minnesota,
North Dakota and Manitoba will be cut in
two. Heretofore the rates to the above
points have been $50, first class, and $40.
second class. In effect next Saturday, the
rates will be $25, first class, and $20, second
class.
The rates from Tacoma to Chicago will
be $31.50, first class, and $26.50, second class.
To points in Ontario and Quebec, as far
east as Montreal and south of the line of
the Grand Trunk railway, Port Huron to
Montreal, $40, first class, and $30, second
class.
The same rates will prevail from the east
to Tacoma.
The Canadian Pacific announces that it
will meet these rates one day later, Sun
day, February 20.
"HIT 'EM AGAIN"
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Feb. 18.—The
Soo Paclilc has announced, as effective on
February 23, a rate from Minneapolis and
St. Paul to Puget sound points of $15, first
class, $10, second class, and to Portland
$5 higher.

ALL HARBOR BIDS
Must Be Submitted to Secretary
Alger's Inspection
WASHINGTON, Feb. 18.—While the bids
for the construction of a breakwater at
San Pedro harbor, which were opened in
San Francisco last week, show decidedly
low figures, it Is said that further scrutiny
must be undergone before anything in the
way of letting contracts takes place. Not
only Is there the unusual feature in the
contract that they shall be void if no ap
propriation is made this year, but orders
have been given the engineers' department,
which ordinarily awards contracts with
out reference to the secretary of war. that
all San Pedro bids must be sent to General
Alger before any action is taken.
Chopped His Foot
W. H. Beers, who resides at Fourth and
San Pedro streets-, was brought to the re
ceiving hospital last night suffering from
a bad wound in his left foot. He had been
splitting wood and while resting his foot
on a piece of wood to steady it for the blow
with an ax the wood slipped and the ax
struck his foot, cutting a gash several
Inches long between the toes. Dr. Hagan
sewed up the wound and the injured man
was then taken home.
The Suffragists
WASHINGTON. Feb. 18.-The woman's
suffrage convention occupied its morning
session today with resolutions of condo
lence and sympathy upon the death of Miss

for the coming year. At 1 p. m. the dele
gation, numbering were received
by President McKinley ln the east room at
