We saw several boat completely broken in two that had struck on rocks in the River Chanuel and it kept us Busy steering Clear of the dangerous places but were fortunate enough to come All the Way Down m perfect safety. We reached the Mouth of Stewart River on june 23 and decided to go up it. The Stewart is Aiea a great River carrying in an immense volume of water varying in Width from a Quarter to a half mile deep and very Swift As it was out of the question to take the Large boat up against such a current we built a Small boat and on the 4th of july started up the Stewart and went As tar a Independence Creek which is in in to Miniee up we worked this Creek together with quite1 a number of o there for almost two months but none of us were Able to find Gold in any Quantity. Gold seems to be on Independence like Oil around Smethport very scarce. The last Bole 1 helped to sinks 52 Leet 2 inches through Frozen ground but it a All in vain in fact we never struck bed Rock becoming discouraged at such poor prospects at such a depth we decided to wait it Aud try some other Creek. So we pulled our freight out of there and started Down the River again beading for Dawson City. This Hole we helped to sink on Independence was 12 Miles from the in out of the Creek Ana everything we took up there bad to be packed up on our backs it is a Tough proposition to carry a pack of 75 or 80 pounds on one s Back or 12 mile Over the roughest kind of a trial but it has to be done Thomas Given of Wixford Aud Earl Emery of Bradford worked on the same Bole and were the beginners of the Job. They with four other Fellows worked hard at it for two months it is quite a task to sink a Shaft 52 feet through Frozen ground it has Alt to be thawed by that log rocks Aud dropping them into the Bole after leaving Independence we set sail Down the Stewart again and when 15 Miles trom the Mouth met some Fellows from. Montreal who told us of a strike on Scroggie Creek which is 25 Miles up the Stewart. So we a did no to do a things but turn around make a Cache of our goods and Start Back up Vba River for Scroggie Creek. We were in the Lead of the crowd that was hurrying to stake out claim and determined to keep it. It was a great Stampede. I succeeded in getting 83 above discovery Bob was 84. And Taos. Givans so. The night we staked our claims we had no Blanket with of and it grew so dark before we could get Back it waa impossible to go any further so we built a fire and Laid Down on the ground beside it and m the night. We did not have to be told to get up next morning a it Wae too cold to sleep Wall we were on the Way at 4 30 and when we reached the place where we Baa a aft our packs we bad break fast and slept till noon when a started Back Down tha Creek of our was Back a must have met Over 50 Fellows on their Way to discovery i do not know whether there will he anything in it or not but it looks very Good.
