All sins fail in a dry time, and no man can tell inwli about the hiding place of gold. In 1880 a French Canadian named Joe Juneau wandered tip Silver How basin, the beautiful canyon hack of the town which bears his name. II. panned the first gold from a field that has enriched the world by many mil lions, and which will continue to con tribute to Its wealth for many years to come. Juneau was one of those Tearless characters who helped to con Utter the wilderness. He was a path anrier in the full sense of the word, ret he died penniless.
