THE NEW STRIKE IS
NOT AUTHENTICATED
The Nome Nugget in its weekly is
sue of September 3, in speaking of the
strike recently reported from the
headwaters of the Kobuk. says:
Andy Garbine. an old timer of the
Kiana section who arrived in Nome
on the last trip of the Silver Wave,
says :ha- the only reason for believing
' "hat a new strike has been made near
the headwaters of the Kobuk appears
’ to lie in the failure of a number of
' Kianaftes to return after making the
rather iengthy journey to the Walker
iake country, where the strike is sup
posed to be. Jimmie Cross. Frank
Ma’.fetti and Jack Sackett are reported
to have gone up tke Kobuk in the
spring and have not returned up to
the present. The men are said to
~a e undertaken the trip because of
a report that an Eskimo had found
some gold on one of the streams run
ning into the lake. Garbine says that
be is not aware of the correctness of
the Eskimo story. Garbine is locat
ed on Center creek, a tributary of
Squirrel river and is the owner of
a considerable area of dredging ground
which is attracting some attention
from local parties, who are said to be
, '■£ ring on drilling the property with
■ .ew to installing a dredge next sum
I rr.er Garbine reports that the Clery
reek section is still the scene of nu
merous mining activities with prac
tically all operators doing well.

MORE STORIES OF
GERMAN CRUELTY
COME TO LIGHT
A special cable dispatch to the New
York World dated September 22 says:
"The revolting cruelty to which
British prisoners are subjected in Ger
man military camps was described by
repatriated soldiers who arrived in
London recently. Private George El
siey. of a Welsh regiment, who was
captured in September. 1914. said:
"Although wounded men were kept
without food or water for days, and
when one of us begged for something
to drink the nurse brought him a glass
of water and threw it in his face.
Later we were removed to a hospital
at Schwerin, where we were treated
well and later still to the Gustrow in
■ eminent camp, where we were treat
ed like dogs.
In the Snow
"Although we were badly wounded,
on our arrival at Gustrow we were
kept standing in the snow without
boots from 11 a. m. until 10 o'clock at
night. Several of us nearly died of
starvation. When we complained we
were either prodded with bayonets or
the ‘English blockade" was given as a
reason for the shortage of food. The
bedding was covered with vermin and
we slept on straw on the floor.
"After weeks of this hell we were
set to work to build a canal. All the
wounded men with arms and legs had
o work, and if a man slacked oft' he
received the butt-end of a rifle. One
day we saw several wounded men
stabbed by their guards, and they were
afterwards carried to a hospital. One
man who refused to work was taken
away and we never saw him again."
So that a smoker can see what is
oecuring behind him an English in
| ventor has patented a ptpe with small
j mirrors on the bowl.
