IIIZtllliH PREDICTS A BRILIIW fDIIRE y Noted Mining Engineer Has Faith In Tanana and White River Districts and Says Klondike Will Last Long Time William Fitzhugh, the woll known mining engineer, arrived from Kagle last night on his wa.v to London, from whence lie has several times been sent into this country by a syndicate of min ing investors. He made a thorough in vestigation of the placer fields near Kagle that were bonded to bis syndicate and will lte reported unfavorably. The property, when he first visited it, prom ised great things and at the time created considerable excitement, but the more careful re-examination would not bear out the lirst brilliant hopes of the owners. Mr. Fitzhugh has investigated the Tamna country and express an unqual ified belief that it will become o: e of the leading placer districts in the world, and he is also a firm believer in the White river district. His people will continuo their search for good in vestments in the north. Of the Klon dike district, Mr- Kitzhugh says that it is not only far from lieing exhausted, but that mining operations in the coun try will continue on an increasing scale for many years to oome. These opinions, eminating as they do from one of the most reliable mining engineers of the day, cannot but ac centuate the hopes of the people of tlw north for the brilliant future of the country. Mr. Fitzhugh said further that the spendidly equipped stage service of the W. P. A Y. It. and the excellence of the |K)lic? system of the Northwest terri tory, were invaluable factors in the progress of the country Mr. Kitzhugh is at the Golden North hotel.
