It was not the season for mountain
traveling and he found plenty of hard
ships, besides ilnding the mountaineers
had a peculiar way of robbing the few
travelers Who made the trip at that sea
son. He was compelled to pay $25 to one
man for supper, lodging and breakfast
and $16 to another man for lodging and a
cup of coffee. Though he finally, managed
to reach the Chilean side of the moun
tains he was too disgusted to want to re
main and too nearly broke to think of
prospecting. He accordingly made his
way to Valparaiso, where he succeeded
through the American Consul in getting
the opportunity^ to work his passage to
America on the Serapis. He expects to
remain ln Southern California for a time,
having telegraphed for and having re
ceived money from home. He declares
that the gold ln the Ande3 can stay there
for all he. cares, as he will not even go
back for that which he left there.
SAN DIEGO, June 30.— The story told
by Charles N. Simpson, who reached San
Diego on the steamer Serapis, is one of
much traveling in a few months and of
peculiar hardship which made him wish
for home and work hla passage to get a
start in that direction. In March last he
left his home ln Wheeling, W. Va., for
South America,' going by way of New
York and Liverpool to Buenos Ayres. That
was twice across the Atlantic, besides
traveling almost the entire length of it.
He had started with the intention of
prospecting in the Andes Mountains,
in Chile, and he rode from Buenos
Ayres to the foot of the mountain,
whence with a single companion he start
ed on foot to cross into Chile. > 1

SAN RAFAEL. June SO.— Constable
Ofursc Agnew this afternoon arrested
five Chinamen belonging- to the San Pablo
shrimp camps. In default of bonds the
men were lodged in jail. Thes*- are the
first arrests that have been made in sev

the men Is the old story of catching small

Peopie of the outside world cannot
Imagine what a climate we have here.
Th«re Is no rammer. Although It 1* day
lieht all the time now, it is just fall and
¦winter. I left St. Michael on February 6
with my three dogs and E10 pounds of
freight. I traveled alone and was thirty
five days in covering 313 miles. I . pros
pected Norton Sound and Golovin Bay dis
tricts on my journey, but found nothing en
couraging. I arrived in Nome on March 9
without mishap. Upon arrival I found the
country staked for miles in every direction.
I received infermatim of a good location

located sis claims. Tome thirty other proe-
I^ctors arrived on the ecene immediately
after me. A miners' meeting was called
I have had some experiences since I saw

most prominent characteristics has been a
heavy gale, acempanied by a blinding
snowstorm. The bark Alaska arrived sorre
Jays since from San Francisco and was
blown ashore during the gale. Bhe went
to pieces Immediately and her cargo Is dis
tributed along the beach. Three tugboats
and one Eloojt were also wrecked and tome
lives were lost. The eteamers Bear, Mary

schooner Louisa D were compelled to put to

That all Is not gold that glitters and
that the reports which come from the
Cape Nome goldfields are at times highly
colored is evidenced by a letter written
by William L. Phillips under date of
Nome City, June 9, to Judge Frank H.
Dunne of this city.
He says in substance that the country
is, Btaked for miles in every direction;
that some claims pay $2 per day; that the
beach claims paid well for a time, but
nothing like .the returns sent out, and
that they are completely worked out now.
He affirms that they do not average Jl a
day to each man engaged in mining. En
gineers and mechanics are scarce, $500 a
month not being an unusual salary for
skilled labor. The majority of the claim
holders are awaiting the coming of the
tenderfeet, to whom they may sell their
claims for large sums. The writer be-
Jleves the suffering will be intense this
bummer, as typhoid fever and other dis
eases are expected to develop. The let
ter in full reads:

I have heard of people going to California
and telling of their rich claims and the
money they have made here. Some of them
ought to be hanged. I epeak of the coun

eled over as much of.lt aa the average man
To show you the salaries paid In this part
of the world: I was offered JoM a month
and "found" by the Xorth American Trans
portation and Trading Co. to act as chief
engineer. Engineers and machinists are
scarce. The chief engineer for Lane &
Mackay offered me $15 per day.
The reports which have been sent from
here are exaggerated beyond all belief. '
It is true that some good strikes
have been made here. The beach paid well
for a time, but nothing like what was ex
pected. It is now worked out. A little
beach digging is Rolng on but no one is
making over $3 per day. If the money taken
out was uveraged among the men ut work
it would not be over $1 to each man. Two
or three creeks are good but that is all.
Some men own fifty claims ln different
places, but not 5 per cent of them pay to
work. They are holding them to sell to
the tenderfeet now coming in by thou
sands. The companies are booming the
country ln order to sell their goods at ex
orbitant prices. The suffering here this
summer will be something awful. To make
matters worse, typhoid fever is expected
to break out in another month or so, owing
to the bad sanitary conditions. This is a
breeding eround for fever because of bad
water and manshy eround.

by other districts. I prospected for three
weeks on the claims, but the best that any

sufficient money to take htm out of the

Believes the Powers Erred.
A leading diplomat here, who has had
an extensive experience in China, said
that he condemned the present anti-Chi
nese course pursued by the powers, claim
ing that the naval demonstration with
which the hostilities began was unjusti
fied, as was the marching of troops
toward Peking In time of actual peace.
He considers the subjection of the Chinese
Impossible, and says pacification also 13
impossible. Besides, he adds, to accom
plish anything like lasting military suc
cesses against the Chinese at least 200,000
men will be required; but even then
Europe could not administrate China or
even some of the provinces of China. He
strongly advocates a policy of mutual for
giveness and forgetfulness and the putting
of an effectual stop to missionary efforts
there. He concluded with saying:
"We may leave it to commerce and time
to carry our civilization to China."
A number of papers, including the Tage
blatt, express astonishment at the meager
and Ill-considered reports from Vice Ad
miral Bendeman, saying the other nations
have been better served in this respect.
Kegrets are expressed by the Liberal
newspapers that the Reichstag's summer
adjournment deprives the nation of the
chance of obtaining detailed information
regarding the extent to which Germany
means to participate ln the Chinese ad
venture, which will necessitate the expen
diture of large sums of money. Several
of the leading papers demand that the
Reichstag meet In extra session.
The jingo newspapers advocate Ger
many's acquiring a large army for trans
marine uses. One of these papers, the
Sohiesiche Zeitung, justifies this demand
by the argument that some time a mas
sacre of Germans may occur ln the United
States, "in which case Germany would
be forced to throw large bodies of troops
upon American soil," adding:
"Once the feeling obtains in trans
oceanic countries that Germany Is power
less to throw large bodies of troops be
yond the seas Germany's prestige in
trans-marine ports Is gone."
Germans Dissatisfied.
There is growing dissatisfaction through
out Germany with the attitude of the
Government regarding China, especially
because the Government publishes litttle
otlicial news, and even some of this Is er
roneous. At the Foreign Office evasive
answers were given to inquiries about the
number of troops and ships which may be
The correspondent of the Associated
Press understands that the Emperor and
Count von Bulow, the Minister of Foreign
Affairs, who has just returned from Kiel,
have reached an understanding about
the general lines of Germany's attitude
ln the present crisis, subject to unforeseen
circumstances compelling a deviation. It
is certain, however, that the Emperor
could have all the volunteers for China
he wanted for the army if larger forces
were needed there, for the popular senti
ment against China is quite strong.
"There has been no question hitherto in
Europe of handing the Chinese Ministers
their passports. No one knows where the
foreign Ministers to China are. If they
went to tihang Kwan It was a step taken
by the Chinese Government for their pro
tection and was not their dismissal. The
sending of troops hence to China is use
less, for everything will be over before
their arrival. It will require six weeks to
get them to Tientsin, and Li Hung Chang
will suppress the Boxers in three weeks. 11
The Chinese Minister, however, admits
having received no direct news from the
Chinese Government.
"The old theory of 'no war' is still up
held. The understandings between the
powers are still Intact. No exchange of
notes la going on. Japan some time ago
asked the powers for their programme,
which communication was answered. The
press has been exaggerating the share
which diplomacy hitherto has had in the
matter. There has not been any talk of
dismissing the Chinese Ministers in
Lord Gough, the Charge d'Affalrea, said
he thought the powers were keeping up
the fiction of "no war" as long as possible
out of fear of the difficulties that might
arise between themselves in China if war
were once officially admitted. The corre
spondent of the Associated Press inter
viewed the Chinese Minister. Lui Hal

Japan. Russia and the United States are
all ordering large quantities from Eng
land's stock, which Is aiready depleted by
the Immense demands for the transport
service to the Cape. Coal promises to

some merchants think, importations can
be secured from America. Already 10O.00O
tons of American bunker coal have be?n
landed at Glasgow and sold cheaper than
the fuel could be got from Scotland.
The probability of a big rise in wheat,
owing to the shortage of the American
crop, is also worrying the British business
world, for. though supplies are still com
ing in plentifully from Argentina, the In
dian crop is quite insufficient to meet its
normal demands.
Vice Admiral Seymour's unsuccessful
trip inland has brought upon him much
censure. It is maintained that he should
not have left the fleet.
Great Britain seems to have pretty well
settled down to the belief that the Minis
ters at Peking will not come to much harm.
The average observer agrees with Lord
Salisbury's Idea that if they are safe at
present, as there seems every reason to
believe. It is not likely that they will be
harmed in the future.
As a result of the dramatic debate pub
lic opinion seems fairly evenly divided
between two verdicts. First, that the
War Office is guilty of criminal neglect:
second, they reserve all judgment till the
Parliamentary committee reports. Mr.
Burdette-Coutts has suddenly Decome one
of the most prominent men of the hour
and the Government haa still to face thp
agitation which has stirred the country
almost to a greater extent than did the
declaration of war Itself.
Mr. Balfour for once lost his self-con
trol. Flushed and trembling with pas
sion, he denounced the attacks, which he
declared merely amounted to ungenerous
criticisms of Lord Roberts. This, the
Times denied, and in point of fact the
whole of Mr. Burdette-Ooutts' speech was
an attack upon the methods of Lord
Kitchener instead of Lord Roberts,
though this was not openly stated.
The Government was awake to the se
riousness of the crisis, and with surpass
ing oratory Mr. Wyndham took his
critics behind the scenes of the great
campaign, ln graphic language he dis
cussed the great difficulties of the com
munications and exposed for the first
time the daring conception of Lord Rob
erts' plans and the risks he ran. In
short, without tiring his hearers with too
many statistics, the Under Secretary for
War gave such a fascinating panorama,
interjecting facts to prove that the War
Office took all precautions, reiterating
that war must always be fearful, that
his hearers well nigh forgot the sick and
wounded in their admiration in the suc
cess of the great general; but this, the
Times points out to-day, all crumbled
away under the damning details present
ed by Mr. BurdetU-Coutts, who spoke
with the advantage of having seen
whereof he spoke.
He is nothins of an orator and was
obliged to present a mass of detail that
now and again grew tedious. He never
theless held his audience by the strength
and gravity of his statements. His dec
laration that "every statement that I
have made is true" was made with an
earnestness that atoned for all his rhe
torical cieiects. This terrible arraignment
of Great Britain's care of her wounded,
sick and dying 'made on Friday night Is
by far the most notable occasion of the
present session. The speech of the Par
liamentary Secretary of the Foreign Of
lice, George Wyndham, which was pre
ceded by Mr. iJurdette-Coutts and that <>t
the Government leader and Lord of th-s
Treasury. W. J. Balfour, that followed it.
were both efforts that neither man .haa
equaled, this year at any rate.
Mr. BurUette-Coutts has seldom spoken
in Parliament, and never before at such
length or with the whole nation waiting
to hear what he had to say.
