FIRST GOLD POKE FROM SHUSHANNA REACHES DAWSON Andy Taylor and Tommy Doyle Bring 197 Ounces, Two Days' Washings, From New Fields FIELDS VERY RICH BUT TRAILS IN HARD Warn Stampeders to Take Horses and Ample Outfits When They Go (Speoi*! Cnrrr-spondenf-e to The CslH DAWSON. Au#t.'Tti« receipt, of the first poke of gold from the new Shu shanna strike. 200 utiles west of Daw- Bjbn, stirred this old town to the center, prtd liuntlr.fds have stampeded from tlie old diggings. Andy Taylor and Tommy Ho vie brought In the gold via the Canadian government's new trail tr, Coffee Creek landing, on the Yukon. 169 miles above DMVsnti. then came rlow'tt by steamer. Taylor says: "The gold which tf'e brought down n-as taken from Discovery claim on T.ittle Klriorado creek and was shov eied into Sluice boxes by four men in two days. Its exact weight is 19714 Ounces.'. : ' "The gold is coarse and of high grad*. It is similar in appearance to the gold from Jack Wade creek. The pieces range mostly from the size of a flaxseed to the size of an ordinary red bean, with finer dust also plen tiful. "Disco-very on Little Eldorado is owned by Billy James. Xels Nelson and Billy Johnson. They also own other in terests on the same creek and on Bo nanza, the first creek struck in the Vicfiilty, and on some of the other • reeks. Gold has been discovered on most of the creeks. . AM, CLAIMS' PAY "Bonanza creek seems to have pay on all claims from the mouth to the head. The stream is 19 claims long. also is located on the Chatenda, known also as Johnson creek, from the mouth of Bonanza down, and possi hly is also on Johnson above the junc tion/ . i "Seven claims are staked on Little i:irlor«xlo. eight on Glacier, seven on <roid Run. two on three or four on Coarse Money. Other creeks staked include Three Pup, a tributary of Bonanza: Skookum. a branch of Lit tle Eldorado: Discovery Pup, off Gold Run: the Chevulda. known there as Eldorado, and Wilson, named after the president. "Streams flowing into Wilson are Glacier. Gold Run and Eldorado. The others named are tributary to Bonanza. "The creeks mentioned sre all above limber line, and only willows are in evidence. On Bonanza and Little El rlorado the miners have to haul wood for cooking three to four miles. The timber belt extends up Johnson to the mouth of Bonanza and touches the lower, part of Wilson. Eldorado and Glacier. Johnson and Wilson both flow eastward Into the Chisana. known also to some as the Shushanna. The gold bearing streams, in short, as lo • ated. He between the Chatenda and the Chevulda, otherwise known as Johnson and Wilson. These streams are old glacial moraines, and the gravel m them is three to four feet deep on the average, and not frozen, and has no muck on its surface. Considerable water flows down the streams. Little Eldorado was carrying three sluice heads when we left. GQLD IS COURSE "The gold is so coarse and rough it evidently has traveled little, and seems to have been left there as the re sult of glaciers cutting through quartz leads on those high exposed table lands. James and Nelson made the discovery when over at the mouth of Bonanza looking for quartz. They soon afterward located also on the other streams. "The miners located in the district had agreed on so much work for rep resentation. T believe it was some thing like eight by eight by six. Labor there is counted at VIS to $25 a day under the present conditions of such great cost of getting in supplies. We were 12 days coming down from the strike to Coffee Creek, oivthe Yukon, where'we took the steamer for Daw ,soh. We hrought three horses, and •"ill go back that way In a few days. The government crew Is building a fine pack trail from Coffee to the head of the White. Two boats are being made for ferrying the Donjek. "The country Is full of caribou, mountain sheep. rabbits, ptarm«fcan and other game, which can be had near the diggings. The fish are plenti ful in Beaver and the Beaver lakes. Any one going in should have a 22 and a large rifle, and fishing tackle. No one should attempt to go there without horses, as it is a long trip after leaving the head of navigation, and one can not much more than get In and back without a big outfit. No one there is prepared to supply any one else. It will be folly for a rush to take place Into the country without every one being supplied. •When we left the diggings 25 men had arrived froth the Cordova side via Scolal pass, and some were men »who had come up the Tanana riX'.er from the Fairbanks region. They were scour ing the country to locate. By this Hme many more must have arrived b> that route POLICEWOMEN TO AWAIT NEW TITLE Three Departments Wrestle With Name; No Jobs Before Christening . What shall the policewomen be. called? . The supervisors, police commission and cjv.ll service board are wrestling with this question. The latter debated it at length yesterday and could reach no conclusion because of a diversity of opinion among the women themselves, although one commissioner suggested •'coppettes*' as the feminine for "cop." Some want the new officers to be known as "social service inspectors," the title selected by the civil service com mission, and others, including Mrs. Lil lian Harris Coffin, president of the New Era league, favor "women protective officers." All agree that "policewoman ' is a harsh, undignified term. The civil service board invites the women to be present in force Monday night, when the christening will be made a special order of business. Ap pointments can not be made until the ,ivil service board officially designates fab* of the new offlc* FRIENDS, BUT NOT ENGAGED Miss Marsden Holds Out Hopes Miss Lucie .

"You are under arrest." snapped the officer. "You can't get by me at that speed." Bowman took the situation in at a glance and not desiring to pay a $50 fine quickly turned tip the rim of his soft hat and replied with a slight Eng lish accent: "HI say. young fellow. Hi am a stranger in these lands, direct from Canada. 1 do not know your laws and believed that a chap was permitted to travel over these beautiful high ways at least 40 miles an hour. I am a visitor within your gates on a tout ing trip and if you insist on putting me In the lockup I will be compelled to call for the British consul." There was a slight lull in the con versation, then the officer replied: "T beg your pardon, my dear sir, but if you will please travel a bit slower" I would appreciate it. Good day."

The petitions will be argued before the court next Wednesday by several of the lawyers who figured in the hear ings upon the disputed will. One petition is a brief page by Mig uel A. de Laveaga, a brother, who for ?5 years managed her estates in Mex ico and California. The other, a lengthy one that rehearses much of the contentions that marked her contest of the will, is filed by Maria Josefa Ce brlan. a sister of Miss de Laveaga. Judge Coffey's decision declaring the will invalid, having been sustained by the supreme court, each of the peti tioners "how seeks to administer the estate and the attempt is said to fore shadow fully as bitter a fight for the control of the estate as that which marked the contest over the will. Miss de Laveaga died in Madrid, Spain. February 15, 1893, leaving an estate valued at $2,600,000. Miguel de Laveaga already has ob tained special letters of administration and, in her petition, Mrs. Cebrlan asked that he be deposed and that she be appointed administratrix. Mrs. Cebrian charges that ,her brother declared Miss de Laveaga to have been incompetent, although he managed her affairs during her lifetime and permit ted her to have directing powers which, she contends, should not have been allowed to an incompetent. Another charge of Mrs. Cebrian's is that Attorney 3. V. de Laveaga, son of Miguel, persuaded Miss de Laveaga to sign'the $1,000,000 bond of the late E. J. le Breton when he became re ceiver for the California Safe Deposit and Trust company. She contends that if Miss de Laveaga was competent to sign such a bond she was competent to make a will. Miguel de Laveaga is represented by the law firm of JMllsbury. Madison and Sutro, and Mrs. Cebrian by Attorneys Timothy G. Lyons. Peter F. Dunne and Samuel M. Shortridge. all of whom were in court. Mrs. Cebrian is living at 1801 Oc tavia street.
