SUBSCRIBERS oro earnestly re? quested to observe the date printed on their nddress slips, which will keep them at all times posted aH to tho date of tho oxpiration of their sub? scription. Prompt ami timely attention to this rcquost will save all parties a great deal of annoyance. With tho beginning of work on theAlaska railwny,for which the general government has appropriated $30,000,000, all sorts of "wild cat" mining schemes will be unloaded upon the people of tho United States, if they nro not. careful, accord? ing to a statement made by Klwood Bruner of Nome, Alas ka, a Senator of the Territorial legislature. Mr. Brunor, who has been in Washington for the past four mouths looking after several bills before Congress in which the legislature of Alaska is interested, said, before leav? ing for his far north-western home, "The people of the slates must light shy of wild cat min? ing schemes which promoters will foist upon them. Jt has been the constant aim of the legislature of Alaska to keep the credit of the territory first class. When the question of a government-owned railroad came before the legislature it was most generally conooded that the moment tlie lull mak? ing appropriations for tho road had passed Congress, it would ho the signal for the advent of hundreds of 'Wallingford--.' and get-rich-quick adventurers who later on would drift buck to the Stales in due season with the moid unheard of atones of rich finds, fabulous placers, and a wealth of description that w o li 1 d out'Muuchnunon old Huron Munohausori himsolf, In view of these conditions I would advise tho people who are seriously considering the purchase of Alaska mining stock to go slow, (let someone in whom you have confidence to examine the property before you purchase, otherwise you stand to get stung good and hard.''

An east bound freight Irain was wrecked on the Virginia and Southwestern Bailway Sat? urday afternoon about 2:30 just beyond the furnace,the engine and t hree cars leaving the t rack, t he cars being badly demolished. All the train crew escaped in? jury by jumping olT except the engineer, who had two ribs fractured. Traffic was blocked until:! o'clock Sunday morning A loose rail was the cause of the accident. Nearly Com? pleted Work is Being Pushed on Elkhorn Division to East? ern Kentucky. The Manufacturer's Record says: Two new coal routes are fast approaching completion. Una is the extension of the Clinch Held railway from Dante, Va., to Elknorn City, Ky., anil the other is from Winchester to Irving, Ky., on the Louisville & Nashville railroad. Tin- first will enable the coal of the Clincbtield region in Virginia to be hauled over a direct line to the (Ireat Lakes, connection being made at 101kborn with the Ohesapeak <S: Ohio railway for Chicago and other lake ports, and the second will afford the railroad which is building it a low-grade line of easy grades and curves such as are now de? manded for the economical transportation'of coal by rail. This latter will carry the pro? duct of Mines in the Klkhorn region of Kentucky, which also has an outlet on the oilier side of the mountain, by way of the Chesapeake ?.t Ohio. But there are many openings in prospect on the line of the Louisville & Naebvillo, which is now build? ing spurs to some of them, and the new extension will be of great value to its owner. The fast approaching comple? tion of the Clinchfield railroad I as originally planned directs at tentiou to the work which is being done in its behalf, looking to the construction of an up-to date coal-handling plant on tidewater at Clarleston. The road has there a superior site upon the water-front, and plans have been prepared to build yards and a pier for the trans? shipment of the fuel from the cars to vessels. As the Clincb? tield has no line of its own into Charleston, it is anticipated that the Seaboard Air Lino will give it entrance there, because interests in that system are now building a railroad from a connection with the Seaboard to that port. This new line is the Charleston Northern, which is an extension of what are locally known as the Bonsai roads, and which leave the Seaboard at Hamlet, N. (.'., ex? tending down in South Cnro llina via McCall and Dillon, finally reaching Andrews on the railroad into Georgetown? the Georgetown & Western? from which station the Charles? ton Northern is now being built southward to Charleston itself. While this route may be used immediately upon the comple? tion of this construction, it is expected that an extension will bo built from the end of one of the Bonsai roads at Jefferson, S. C, northwest to Monroo, N. C, thus making a very direct route from Bostic, on the Clinch field, over the Seaboard via Lincoln!.m and Charlotte and Monroe, N. C , and Florence, S. C, to the tidewater terminal. Ab interests in the Seaboard are also interested in the Clinch field, nothing is more naturally expected than that the Clinch field, iuBteod of building dowu from Spartanburg, S. C, as has been propoaed, woultl avail itself of tho Seaboard rou'e. oppnr ently so well suited to its pur I pose, notwithstanding that it (already Iih-> n truIHe contrac? 'with the Southern railway 'under very favorable terms [from Spnrtanslmrg to Churles iton.
