THE ALASKA BUNCH
ARE STUNG VERY HARD
THE CROWD WHICH STAMPEDED TO BOLIVIA ARE HAVINQ A
HARD DEAL AND ARE WENDINQ THEIR WAY HOME
8AY THERE 18 NOTHINQ IN THE COUNTRY
The reported rich gold .strikes
in Bolivia which reached Alaska
last fall and were the moans of
attracting a number of minors
from thin northland, have turned
out lo be canards, and the fol
lowing expose in the Seattle
Times will fnrnish interesting
reading fop those who stayed at
home and were not among thone
dupod:
"This 1* the greatest fafce
stampede that was over conceiv
ed. Wo wouldn't trade an acre
of boggy, soggy, squashy Alaska
tundra for the whole' country.
VV'o're coming back, stuhg again."
This is the manner in which
Hobert F). Adams. Karl Hyde, Totfi
Doyle and many other well khown
Alaskan mining mon size up Bo
livia, the country to which thoy
stampeded last winter in great
haste ami expectation.
News of a big gold strike wan
received here last fall, and im
mediately Karl Hyde hurried to
Washington whore he gathered
up a number of panftports and
other documents, all covered with
gold seals, blue ribbons and other
insignia calculated to impress the
Spanish mind with his import
ance. He rushed to Panama and
then through Bolivia to f,a Paz.
tireat were the expoctatiops of
the northerners, and still greater
was their disappointment. One
letter from Hob Adams 'to Felix
Brown, of this city, written, like
the others, for the purposo of
warning Alaskans that Bolivia
wa* a good country to koep away
from, explains the situation. Ad

The* hears are heing driven
down from the hills in search of
food, heing unable to get any fish
from the ash-choked streams and
are turning to the stock for food.
Mr. Bnodgrass reports that the
hear killed was very poor ami was
doubtless in a starving condi
tion when killed.
The slock from the experimen
tal farm will be moved from the
vicinity of Kodiak to the south
end of the island al once, as the
grass at that point has not been
hurt as much as near Kodiak and
Afognak.

President Silverman is at pres

10-mesh screen, and then the
entire tailings will he put
through the Ohillean mill and
Ihe remainder will he evanided,
making it almost impossible to
lose any values al all. At the

cuts down the capacity of Ihe

of the mill will he doubled.

NANENA COAL CLAIMANTS
WILL APPEAL TO SECRETARY
CONTEND THAT WITHDRAWAL OF COAL LANDS BY ROOSE
VELT WA8 CONTRARY TO LAW—IMPO8ITION8 OF SEC
RETARY WERE ONEROUS
The brief aiul spocillcalions of
orro hold by the coal land claim
ants of ?he 11 a I y fork of I he
Naruna, in I heir appeal lo the
Secretary of I he Interior, have
been Mod with the register of Hie
Fairbanks land office. The decla
ratory statements filed by the
claimant* in connection with
their locations were rejected by
Ihe commissioner of the general
land office on March 12, 1912, and
3 days after the service of the
decision was had on the attorney
for the claimants n notice of ap
peal was filed. The brief and
specilcations of error, now pre

peal. It is believed thai Waller
Fisher, Ihe Secretary of the In

on Ihe matter within Ihe next six
months.

from entry as provided in his
special proclamation issued No

entry is generally recognized with
the qualification that the with

special authority of Congress,
and If no snch special authority
is given, then only lands to be
devoted to some public purpose
can be withdrawn. The brief
states that the act of President
Roosevelt in withdrawing tin*

statutory provision and therefore
entirely void.
