Pan Francisco, July 22.—The regu
lar season of travel to Alaska will bo
closed in less than two weeks because
of the leo In the northern waters in
September, but so many hundreds are
anxious to get to (he new gold region*
• hat it ia extremely probable that
more than one steamer will tie char
tered which will endeavor to pass
through the first light ire or will take
gold seekers to the nearest open port
and from there the eager people will
travel over the ice and snow to the
Klondyke fields. It is estimated that
along the l’aclfle coast hundreds will
make any sacrifice and take any risk
to get to the section before winter.
Hundreds more will let the season for
travel close and prepare to go In the
spring and it is certain that next sum

The Ataska Commercial company
has closed it* hooks for the Kxcelsior,
which will he the last regular steamer
to leave for St. Michaels, Alaska.
■Scores flocked to the company’s office
again to-day, and enough decided to
go that way to make up the 200 which
the steamer can carry. A great ma
jority go from San Francisco, hut a
number belong to the interior of the
state, which is largely supplying re.
emits for the Yukon.
Owing to the present rush to the
Klondyke gold fields, and the stilt
gieatcr rush expected next spring, the
I’uget Sound Tugboat company has
decided to put u steamer on the Yukon
river to carry passengers and freight
from St. Michaels to Circle City and
the Klondyke valley.
IVn.MiitoTOW, Del., July 22.— The
Yukon Mining, Trading and Trans
portation company, which was formed
here last year, sent 1'. i. Packard of
Portland Ore., to the Yukon district
to locate a route from the coast to
Teslin lake, the head of the navagable
waters of the Yukon, upon which a
railway could he built. With the aid
of Indians he located the pass leading
direct from Tuku inlet, on the Alaskan
coast, to Teslin lake. This pass he
learned was then known only to five
white men. In October lie returned
and made his report to the company,
and immediately it applied for char
ters in West Virginia, llritish Colum
bia and Canada, all of which were
granted last spring. As an enconr
ugement to the enterprise llritish Co
lumbia made the company a grant of
5,120 acres of land to the mile of rail
way to be built—in all (150.000 acres.
In an interview last night Packard,
who is here completing arrangements
for the beginning of operations, said
tiiat the road would be a great boon
for miners, as it would reduce the cost
of their supplies and remove the pres
ent dangerous delays to their trans
portation up the Yukon river. It will
be 11*0 miles long and will connect
Taku Inlet with steamers from Han
Francisco and Puget points. The road
and its connecting steamers will land
a miner and supplies ut Klondyke in
five days from Taku inlet or Juneuu.
The present route by way of St. Mich
ael's island consumed thirty days
under favorable conditions.”

to Han Francisco, purchase an iron
vessel of sufficient tonnage to carry
men and provisions, which can be
done for 150,000, and proceed to the
Alaskan gold fields. It is the purpose
to hold the vessel at the nearest point
to the gold field for headquarters for

At the executive seseion plans were

“The meeting,” said Chairman By

harder than ever. VVe expect to show

Astoria. Ore., July 22.—A few days
ago when the salmon canners decided
to reduce the price of tish to three
cents a pound the fishermen accepted
the cut und gave the impression that
there would be no trouble. Kate last
night, however, between .I0'» and MX)
armed men sailed over Baker's bay,
which is a veritable network of fish
traps, destroying offensive gear.
Every trap they came to was rendered
useless. The work of destruction was
carried on in plain view from the

stop them From reports, property
valued at from 875,000 to 8125,000 was
destroyed. It is said the object of the
men is to remove all the traps in the
river and force the canners to pay the
price asked, which is five cents.

‘ San Francisco. July 33.—The slram
| ship Umatilla, which arrived ycster
- day from Pugot Sound ports, brought
1 down almost8700,000 worth of Alaskan
’ gold, of which $133,700 was in gold
dust from Seattle, oonsigned to Wells,
Fargo A Co. There were several
other shipments of gold in saoks. sown*
of which was shipped direct from
Juneau, and advices from that piaco
are to the effect that, at least $750,000
wortii of (lust was awaiting shipment
at various Alaskan stations.
Among the sensational advices re
ceived was one from St. Michael's to
the effect that over $4,000,000 in gold
which had not been included with the
fortunes brought, here by miners, will
lie shipped through Wells, Fargo A
Co., other lucky miners having reached
the island since the departure of t he
Kxceisior and Pori land who have mi
cured greater fortunes individually
than those whoso stories have uireai iy
been told.
Although the capacity of tho steamer
Portland, which sails to-day for St
Michael's, and the Ilxcclnior, which
sails ou the 78th, is limited to about
Ilo passengers, over 1,000 application#
have been made for berths. Most of
the disappointed ones are making ar
rangements to travel hence to Tacoma
by rail, and secure passage on the
Mexico and Topeka, which sail thence
next week, hilt many must inevitably
wait until next spring, and ilieir dis
appointment is sore.

Marshal Neely has opened with a mild
cannonade, which will very probably
be followed by more heavy artillery in
tlie course of a short time. A series of
charges will be preferred, the niitu;A
of which is only partially disclosed by
the filing of a statement by eastern
parties, reciting, among other offenses,
that Neely, while acting in his official
capacity and selecting jurors for tho
United States court, accepted a re
tainer to appear as an export -.viliies*
before the same jurors in the <•< le
brated Ilillinon insurance swindling
case. It is said that this charge is 0110
of the least serious preferred against
Neely, evidence in support of other*
Iieing now accumulated by those in
terested in the early retirement of
the marshal.
