Pulse of Western Progress. In the Champion-Dear crook district Trail creek Is likely to have a formidable rival ns a great gold camp , nays a Rossland , n. C. , dispatch to the Spokane Review , If the ere bodies continue to Increase as much In Mzo and grade as depth Is attained nn they 'arc proved by development ork to have done this winter. Champion creek flows Into the Columbia , from the southeast about twelve miles above the town ot Trail. Dear creek flows from the northeast Into the Co lumbia about three miles below Trail. The heads of both creeks arc only one mlle apart. Tha general appearance of the country Is similar to Trail creek , and the Iron crop ping that covers the ore , as well a * the ere Itself , are Identical with this camp. The rlalma arc accessible by a good trait from the- Columbia , The claims that have been worked during the winter on the Cham pion crcok slope are the Dlackhawk , Free Coinage , Jeff Davis , Pride of Erin and Bos ton Hello. The first mentioned belongs to Sam Morris and has a shaft twenty-six feet deep , with flvo feet of solid ere at the bet torn. This ore was struck literally at the grass roots and 1ms held , Its own the full distance of the chart. On the Jeff Davle group work has been done on all the claims , nnd all arc looktrtg well. A shaft Is down nearly fifty feet on tha Free Coinage ant ! Is stilt In ore. Twelve feet of solid ere Is exposed on th Jeff Davis In an open cut , Collins and partners , the owners of this i croup , report that they recently refused t $25,000 bond for the group. The Eliza Ilclle Is a claim owned by Messrs. Uoggs nnd Do- zolti on the Bear crock slope. Dozols sayi that forty feet of work has been done bj himself and partners during the winter am1 that In a shaft twenty-two feet deep ho.haf two feet of solid ere that assays $10 pel ton In gold , which Is an Increase of $10 Ir value , as compared with ore found on thi svlrfaco. Ho Is now engaged In driving t cross-cut tunnel , which will tap the ledg ( undornedth the shaft ot a depth of 150 feet The tunnel Is now In twenty-five feet. AFTER QUARTZ MINES. Thb region surrounding Pierce City , Idaho tile Ore Flno ot the ' 60s , Is now the ob Jectlvo point ot about as many eyes as an : camp In Idaho , says a Wallace special to thi Denver News. The old placers have boei worked nnd reworked until there seems ti bo but little gold left In them , but It wai not until last year that the quartz of thi camp attracted any attention. Last yea the 'fountains for twcnty-flvo miles In cacl direction from Pierce were full of prospcc tors , and their success was enough to creati a bigger rush this year. About 200 mci wintered tn the camp Instead ot the dozei or so of former years , nnd already moi are beginning to go In for another seasoi of prospecting. It will bo Impossible ti got Into the mountains for two months yet but when that tlrao comes it will bo r.oarl ; Impossible to get from the outer world i Tierce , while now the roads nre good , and i man can take some of the old placer grouni nnd more than make expenses , besides belni on the ground ready to enter the moun tains at the earliest possible moment. ROARING UNDERGROUND RIVER. Drowder D. Brown , who returned seven days ago from a trip through the countr south ot Lake Park , reports In an Intorvld published In the Tacoma Ledger , tha nn underground river hao been discovered o the farm .of John Hanwn , a Swedish tarmei six miles south ot Lake Park. "It Is th first underground stream 1 over saw , " sal he. In describing It , "and Is quite a curie elty. It was discovered some tlmo ago. Har eon and his neighbors were digging a wol At a depth of fifteen feet they began to hen a strange roaring sound. The diggers be earned frightened , but continued their worl At twenty feet the earth broke through , n veallng a swiftly rupnlng subtcrranea stream. The water tastes much like th ordinary well water found In that region. "Tho roaring of the water can , be hear a distance ot fifty yards from the top ot th well. The day I was at tha farm no on was present save a small boy , Hanson1 son. All he could tell mo about the rlvc was that It ran faster and roared loudc In winter than In summer. The water rut unusually ewltt 'and ! > the Incline of th river-bed at the point I saw It must ha\ been quite sharp. Hanson has an ol fashioned , oaken bucket and a box rigge up over the well. Ho lost the first bucki ho put In and was unable to recover I HO pays but little attention to Its slnglni The course of the river at Hanson's appeal to bo In the direction of American laki It Is my opinion that It flows Into that bed of water , passes through It nnd flows them underground to the Sound. As Is well knowi American lake has no visible outlet. Tl source ot the subterranean stream Is prol nbly In the foothills of , Mount Tacoraa. " FATLLY BITTEN. Jacob King was a rancher nearly 60 yea : old and had been living alone on his ram In Antelope valley , says a Los Angeles dt patch to the San Francisco Examiner. Ol -night last week the old man went Into h back yard to see to It that Mme pups we : snugly tucked tn the dog house , and tn tl darkness bo thrust Ma hand Into the kum- and felt around. His hand was seized t something and when ho pulled It out the was a big rattlesnake clinging : to it. Tl enako had Implanted Its fangs Into the wi between the Index and the third finger bis right hand and was fixed them. F grabbed tt about the neck with his left hat and choked It until It lot go , when he thrc It to the ground nnd It quickly crawled axva Ho did not go for a doctor at once , b waited until next morning , when he wont Palmdalo and secured the services of physician. By this tlmo the arm v > as twnl ! < purple and was as largo as his thigh. Tl entire loft sldo was receiving the effects the poison , as swelling was appearing ther The doctor ret to work on him , but tl poison had too great a start. The swo'illi ooon passed over and spread down the It side and In a tow hours death ensued. I died the following morning tn great agon -Ills body being almost black at the tlmo of h death. MUIR TUNNEL RESTORED. The big Mulr tunnel , burned out last fal Is again In shape for travel nearly Us entli length , and the Bwltchback over the moui tains will soon bo a thing of the past , says Livingstone , Mont. , dispatch to the Mlnni apolls Journal , There remains uncomplotc only about 200 feet at a point COO feet fro : the west entrance , where a cave ot the carl nnd rock occurred which extends from tl top ot the mountain to the bottom of tl tunnel. Through this heavy mans of earl an archway largo enough to permit workmc o r > am back and forth has been forced , and rork Is slowly but steadily being pron cuted. t to still uncomfortably warm nt this point , nd the workmen nrc compelled to strip to holr underclothing. With the opening of n tastageway , however , a current ot Mr Is iftrmltted to enter the tunnel that Is grad ually cooling off the superheated rock and arth , reducing the tempcraturo about evenly degrees ulnco the workmen first ven- urcd to that point. With the favorable progress that lias been made In the past , It will not bo moro than five weeks before the unncl will be In shape for resumption ot j-anic. It Is understood that the tunnel will not bo arched with brick , but that concrete will bo used to cover the heavy timbers used n arching the big bom This work will bo begun after traffic In resumed. YUKON GOLD3EEKERS PERISH. L" . S. Hedge , a newspaper man , formerly ot Seattle , and a companion , a whlto man whoso name Is not known , are undoubtedly among the number ot adventurous seekers for gold la the great Yukon country who will never return , pays n Nanalmo , B. C. , dl - patch to the San Francisco Call. A party ot Indians arrived In Juneau tell of the probable - able death of the pair In a lerrlflc snow storm. Hedge and his companion left Juneau nboul the last of December for Circle City via the Takou route and through Wilson pass. They started In company with James Jackson and two other natives. Jackson Is the mall car rier for the Alaska Commercial company. Ho nnd his companions wore traveling with sledo drawn by dogs , whllo Hedge and his companion were afoot and drawing their own sleds. After Iravlng the foot ot Lake Lo riergo the whlto men , unable to keep up with the Indians , were left to shift for them selves. It was between Lake Le Dcrge and Casslar Bar that the bearers of the news last saw the unfortunate goldneeker ? . Hedge and hit companion had thrown away their supplies nnd were endeavoring to find a better trail when the Indians came upon tbem. The whlto men refused to comply to the ursine of the natives to turn back. The Indians pushed on toward the camp at the foot ol Lake Lo Berge. Shortly after leaving the adventurers a terrific snow storm came on , The Indians themselves narrowly escaped \vlth their lives Into the camp. As nclthei Hedge nor his companion has since beer hoard from there can bo but llttlo doubt as to their fate. OWNED A SLAVE IN ALASKA. United States District Attorney Burton E Bennett , ot Sltka has been writing some very Interesting letters to friends hero or the novel scenes by which he Is surrounded says a Victoria , B. C. , dispatch to the Sar Francisco Examiner. In a letter datet February 18 ho relates an Incident which is of mom than usual Interest , as It Is a storj of probably the last slave held on Unltec States territory. "Klantach , ono of the sub-chiefs of thi Sltka tribe , came to my ofilco with an in terpreter , " said he , "nnd Informed mo thai Kllllsnoo Indians owed him 100 blankets worth $150 or $175 , nnd wanted me to give him a letter orde'rlng them to pay It , as hi nnd his warriors In canoes were going K start tor there next morning early. I re fused to glvo him a letter till I had furthe ; Investigated. I thereupon sent for Colone George Kostrometlnoff , official court reporter ' who speaks the Indian language. At' inj request ho made a thorough investigation o the matter , with interesting results. About forty years ago. It seems , at Hootz nee ( Brown Pear's fort ) , a largo Indlai village , one and a half miles from Kllllsnoi ( llttlo fort In the bay ) , a fight took plac between two clans , during which nn India : woman wns klllod. Her name was Ka- , Shtct Shlk , and she was an aunt of Klantach According .to the Indian custom , the mm who killed her had to pay a great man ; blankets or lose his life. Who It was wh killed this woman was , ot course , unknown as It. occurred during a general fight. Hence the debt fell upon the Kllllsnoo tribe , whlc ! \\as obliged to pay or have ono of Us me : killed. . f. "Not .having enough , blankets to pay fo the death ot the woman , the trlbo gave slave to Klantach named Eahow , a youn Ii.dlan about 20 years old. When ho wa qulto young he had been stolen from th Hydah tribe , who live In the southern par of Prlnco of Wales' Island. At this tlm sieves were obtained by stealing chlldre I from other tribes and from prisoners taken i war. A chief who had ten slaves was con sldered a very rich man. "Klantach returned to Sltka and kep Eabow as a slave until last summer , who he died. The Kapwantnn trlbo ( the wa tribe ) , of which Klantach Is ono of th principal chiefs , after the death of Eahc-M coi eluded It had nothing to show that It ha ever been paid for the death ot Klantach' auct , and also concluded that It ought t have at least 100 blankets to settle the mat ter. Of course , this was refused. I tel , him that the Kllllsnoo Indians owed hit nothing , and that , moreover , ho had no rlgli to own slaves In this country. Ho c.i plained by saying he had freed his slave years ago , but Eahow would not leave. "It seems that In 1879. when Captal Glass of Jamestown was here , the Sltk tribe , as well as all other Alaskan tribe ; had a great many slaves , nnd ho freed the ; all. But this man concluded to stay wit Klantach. "Klantnch went away , but It seems h and his warriors are dtermlnod to get pa for the squaw that was killed forty year ago , ns next morning , after leaving my ofllci he , with five canoes , started for Kllllsno to enforce his claim. I do not know the re suit yet. This Is the last Sltka slave , an probably the last Instance of slavo-holdln In the land of tha free. " i THE DAKOTAS. i Thomas H.

The opening of the forest reservations li Colorado to mineral entries has given plent ; of new territory for exploration , nnd upoi the western slope ot Pike's peak there 1 qulto a rush to stake out claims. In th West Creek district the area of staked grouni has spread until It covers many square mile of territory of unknown mineral value. The closing down of the Bonnybel mlno am the laying off ot something like forty mci In the Durant mine have caused conslilerabl comment In mining circles , especially th laying off of the men In the latter mine , say the Aspen Tribune. The story that the mei were retired because they were not up t the standard was Incorrect. Most of thos laid off were contractors , and were drlftln : at so much per foot. A body of ore ha been struck and the company proposes break Ing It down Itself. Gold has been discovered tn Aspen dlstrlc and mlnlnc men ore excited In consequence Recently Thomas Hynes ana others leased th Mary B mine , on West Aspen mountain , an a short time ago ran across rock that showe a good percentage of gold and copper.
