j rich gold fields in the northwestern
portion of the continent has caused
an excitement in America unequaled
since the days of '49, when Californ
ia's hidden wealth was published to
the world. The stories of the rich
ness of gold in the Klondike placer
mining district are doubtless not
greatly exaggerated, for the verifica
tion comes along in the way of sacks
and boxes of gold dust and nuggets
and in the report of geologists who
have studied the formation of the
north w es t c o u n t r y .
The Klondike mining region is not
in Alaska, and hence not within the
domains of the United States. It is
in I'r.P.sh North America, horn 35 to
10; miks from the Alaskan bound
ary. As the ' iltimore San remarks.

The Baltimore Sun says :
It is impossible, as yet, to estimate
the probable output of these new gold
fields, but there seems little doubt
that, making all reasonable allowance
for exaggeration, they must be reck
oned with as important new factors in
the world's financial resources. Ever
since the gold discoveries in Califor
nia in '4S the annual production of the
metal has greatly increased. Ac
cording to authoritative statistics, the
average product of the California
mines up to 1S70 was about $45,000,
000 annually. Then followed from
time to time the opening up of new
fields in Australia, New Zealand and
South Africa. The aggregate annual

The railroad commission is very
careful to be just and fair in its decis
ions. It has made the most pains
taking investigation into these sub
jects and we have no doubt that these
two decisions were justified by the
findings of the commission, and they
will undoubtedly be applauded by the
people of the State. Charlotte Observer.

The Government has long beei a

the government printing office on this

gone into the advertising business
