The rush to the Klondike ho
commenced, the most adventurous
of the gold-seekers braving the half-
over winter in order to get ahead of
their fellows. These daring but not
overwise chaps are all going into tlie
Klondike in spite of the fact freely
announced that claims for fifty miles
around Pawson Cicty have already
been taken up. That is, all those
ojH'ii to miners, the alternate claims
lieing reserved for the Canadian
Government. This is not the esisc
ou tho American side of the bound
ary, where every claim is open to fil
ing, and where there are no duties,
royalities, restrictions or jieiialtics
under the United States mining
laws. The early rush of men into
Alaska is comHsed mostly of ''tcn
derfcet," who have had the dormant
gold fever all tall and winter and

The biggest strike yet rejxrtel
from the American side of Alaska
is that made by David Ward, who
has found a region on one of the
largest tributaries of the Yukon,
where he prospected streams and
gulches, finding rich gold deposits
everywhere. On his return last fall
he brought Imck all the gold lu
could earry, and he only cam out
so that he could go Iwek this spring
prepared to take advantage ot hi
rich strike to the fullest extent. Ib
is building a lxit with complete
machinery for placer mining, will
provision her for two years ami will
carry a party ot twenty selected
men with him. After taking up
claims for his party, Wan! will an
nounce the exact location of his new
Eldorado to the world. He says
there is room for ten thousand miners
where he made his find. He is now
in Philadelphia, Pa., and will be
glad to give information or advice
concerning the gold fields to any
who write to him.
