Tim year 1898 is ge-erally recognized
as the one in which Valdez was born.
| in March of that year the great rush
occurred, and from a town of tents at
that time, a city of substantial build
ings has evolved. The men who can.e
to Valdez at its inception, and who
stuck to the tow i through thick and
thin, are now enjoying the fruits <>t
their patience and persevereuce, in
having large, paying businesses. One
case, for instance. J. O Snyder
pitched his tent on the lot where his
big store structure stands an i staited
a stoic in the town in ’98, opening up
with an extremely limited stock of
clothing and groceries business
increased, a frame building supplanted
the tent. Soon this place became too
small, and ot her additions were added
until live have been constructed, the
last having just been completed. The
floor’spiice now occupied is 31\63 feet,
with a warerooui of equal dimensions
upstairs lkv ide this, is the stove and
tinware store, 11x35 feet, f rom a few
sacks and boxes of food and clothing,
hi ’98, the shelves and all available
floor space is now taken by an immense
stock of general merchandise—grocer
ies, dry . oods, crockery, furniture,
stoves, etc.
The success which Mr. Snyder has
achieved by his sticktoitiveness (his is
the oldest store here) and attention to
business, is but a replica of others of
like character, who have faith in their
town and who put their profits in in
creased sticks and improvements
Tiie In ioko country is turning out
well, according to late reports.
