Charles M. Metealf of Detroit
Mich . u inerehant. one of the pnssen-
gurs. st.ld that the Lippy claim on Ho-
nan.a creek from which Oltl amottnt-Itig-
to 81 IV 000 was takun wab one of
the best developed claims in the
If roup. Othcrtf would doubtless prove
just as rich when fully developed.
The lirst claim located on llonanza
cicck was named Discovory and was
recognized by mlner os the center of
the Held other claims being num-
bered each way from It. Sixty claims
were located above and ninety below
Discovery In all fifteen miles being
taken. On Eldorado creek which
empties into llonanza sixty claim
were located the twenty nearost to
the junction being very rich. Prom
one claim located on the Skoonkmn
gulch tributary to llonanza creek .
W. l'ortcr of Denver and Joseph Gold-
smith of Juneau took S.'i.OOO In nuggets
Ignoring the flno gold. They ufter-
wnrd sold the claim for $26000 cash.
They worked only .' i .vceks. Hear
crock a small trlbutu. U Klondike
was also remarkably rich In joltl.
11. E. Jones of 1 lor holes nl. an-
other ims&cngor said: "1 sli mid Hay
there are about'. 500 people in Dawson
City and upon tlio crccim around
there. This summer only about twen
ty claims have been worked nnd thus
fur not a large sum of money has been
taken out. Most everybody Is getting
ready for the winter's work which
will bo pushed as vigorously this year
as last As far as 1 cr.n ostlmato
tlio great wealth of the Klondike
Is holding out. Still the amount of
gold that will come down this
fall will not be as large as estimated
in some quarters. I should say that
there will bo In the neighborhood of
171 men down by the Portland and
Excelsior und a very fair average to
each man would not exceed S'.0000.
Many will bring down pr.sj'tleally
nothing. I would not oaro to say
what the Alaska. Cominoncial com-
pany has In gold on hand. At ono
time gold was so plentiful at Dawson
people did not know what to do with
it. Tlio trading companies' safes were
filled and the stult was packed away
In saloons and in any place miners
could find Hut most of tlio gold was
taken out when tlio clean ups were
completed last spring. Since then
there has not been such u large
amount of gold coining out as the wet
BSllfio.ri.dpes not permit of excavating.
This coming winter thore will bo
about 000 claims in active operation.
They will nearly all do well according
to presont prospects and next wlntor's
output will bo proportionately us largo
us last although thero will not bo as
many very rich strikes. The. bench
claims ure turning out well much bet-
ter in faot than was e.vpoetod. Last
year Ice began to run In the Yukon us
early as September 38 and tf the river
boglns to frooze us early this year
many of the boats now going up and
lutended for the Klondike will not get
through until next year."
