ALASKA GOLD VALUED AT $57500 STOLEN Lead Pigs Are Substituted for Ingots While in Transit to Seattle. SEATTLE. Gold bullion valued at $57,600, part of a shipment of $470,000 from the Washington-Alaska Bank of Fairbanks, Alaska, to the Dexter-Hor-ton National Bank of Seattle, on the steamship Humboldt, was stolen in transit and lead substituted In the strong box that had contained the bullion. The gold when it left Fairbanks on a Yukon River steamer for Daw son and White Horse was contained In three wooden boxes and was in the care of the Alaska-Pacific Express Company. When the boxes were opened by the Canadian customs offi cials at Dawson the gold bars were found to be as stated in the express company's papers. The boxes were opened again at the United States assay office In Seattle, and one contained pigs of lead, not of gold. The seals of the box were In tact when it reached the office, and It was evident that the robbery bad been committed by removing one . end of the box. The gold was in sured eagainst loss by the express company. It is supposed that the gold was stolen on the Yukon steamer between Dawson and White Horse, or on the steamer Humboldt between Skagway and Seattle. There would have been small opportunity for robbery in the essay office or in the short railroad . run from White Horse to Skagway. The gold weighed 250 pounds, and the disposal of such heavy plunder must have required time and preparation. The gold waa in the purser's cabin and it Is not customary on the gold ships to take elaborate precaution against robbery. . Detectives, working on the case have made no arrests, and say they have no clew on which to work. VALUABLE LANDS WILL BE RESTORED WASHINGTON.
