NELCHINA Party Arrives From Westward to Go to Nelchina Diggings via Valdez After Investigating Routes. A party of miners arrived from Seward on the Sampson this morning en route to the Nelchina diggings, where they will prospect ground lo cated by them last fall. The mem bers of the party are Victor Guirn bard, Charles Sheldon, Wm. Prender gast and A. L. Speaker. They have seven fine dogs and will take in sup plies to last them for some time. Their outfit will be sent over the gov ernment road to Tazlina roadhouse by horse teams in order. that, the dogs may be fresh to transport it to the diggings from that point. Mr. Gulmbard went, to the new dis trict from Seward when the stam pede started last faft and was suc cessful in getting ground which he believes will develop paystreaks. He' went back by way of Knik and his ar rival here to take in his supplies bears out the statement'of others that Val dez is the better route to the new diggings. He has been in nearly ev ery big camp since the Klondike was struck and believes the Nelchina will prove extensive. There is an area covering fifty squate miles, extending north from Crooked creek, which is a promising field of operation for prospectors. Mr. Guimbard believes there will be one thousand men in the Nelchina next summer. Some of the members of the party are experienced hard rock miners and will also prospect for lednes next sum mer. Mr. Sheldon was formerly mill man at the Primrose mine in the Willow creek district. The Primrose had a very successful season. Postmaster A. G. Morey, of Chitina, left on the Sampson for Cordova and he will take the first train from that point for Chitina. Mr. Morey was called to Valdez as a witness. Knik Citizens Are Not in Favor of ! Creation of New District to Em brace the Nelchina Camp. I Hecent arrivals from Knik report | that a petition has been circulated ! there protesting against the estab lishment of a new recording district which would embrace the Nelehina digggings. The petition contains the names of more than one hundred miners who are interested in the Knik district, and some of wdiom are claim owmers in the Nelehina. L. David, the recorder and coramis sionre at Knik. has been giving good satisfaction to the public and his friends dislike the idea of the rev enue of his office being cut off now that it is assuming importance, as he has served while there was only a meagre salary in it at best. Many *of the claim owners of the new district are, however, in favor of the creation of the new district. They claim that to compel them to go to Knik to record their claims would work a hardship. It is understood that in the event of the district being divided Joe Con roy, of Seward, will be an applicant for the position, but the many friends of Judge David will urge his reten tion as commissioner in the new district. Ex-Governor Hutchinson, of Ne braska, came over from Seward on the Admiral Sampson and will inves tigate a number of mining properties on Prince William sound. Mr. Hutch inson is a guest at the Copper Block. John Orchard, Sr., left today for Ketchikan in connection with hjs wood pulp factory and water power near the Southeastern Alaska city.

Negotiations were recently com pleted whereby another Port Wells property will be developed during the coming winter. That district is fast coming to the front and next season should witness considerable activity there. The latest deal concerns the Bate Black and Billy Hogan prop erty on Harriman forde. It has been taken over by Mr. M. J. Callaghan, who has contracted to run 200 feet of tunnel for a one-third interest in the eground with an option on the balance for $50,000.00 if he wishes to exercise it after the completion of the tunnel. The deal is one which should ap peal to the owners of the ground. The locators have given the contract at a figure which will permit their mak ing some money while developing the ground. Should it respond favorably j they will have an interest with a deft- j nite value which might otherwise re- [ main undeveloped for years. Mr. j 'Callaghan has good backing and can ! carry the proposition to success if j conditions warrant extensive ppera-1 tions. The ground is located within three hundred feet of tidewater with plenty j of good timber available for mining j purposes. A splendid water power j will provide cheap reduction of the \ ores. The lead on the surface is j front live to ten inches wide, averag- j ing $50.00 per ton, but it is believed j it will increase in width when depth has been gained. The lead is paral leled by a granite dike four feet wide which carries gold and as the gangue on the inside wall pans strong it is believed it will carry values with depth. Mr. Callaghan will leave on the i next boat for the outside for the win- J ter. His home is in Vancouver, B.
