Aug. l.-Spe.-ial.-1'rl-atc John I Howe, of f'onip.uiv ;. ,,f Huron, has written an inicroling letter tu a trieiel iiiinieil A II. Itotit, of I Jan-cistm, Minnehaha county, in whit b the inaiiiier of procuring ihii signatures indorsing (iov,'s letter to the president is revealed. The following is an etirad from the litter. Some of the Uiys are doing a great deal of kii king iiei ause oilier regiments ure sent to Manila lo rest up and we are kept on the firing line so long, but of course kicking doe.-, ho good. We, have a few radical populists in our company and they are always ready to encourage everything of that kind, and you know bom it Is. It is like ad Istaie; It Is catching. Another thing that there has been a greai deal of kicking a,tioiil Is that the regit:., ii' : not sen: home right away, of i-iiuise tiie majority of the bu s would like to go home they fi-el that the work o fihe volunteers is about finis-hed The rainy season will be uwin us in a few weeks and no aggressive campaign can be tiioitglit of iluiing the rainy iieriinl The X 20 piecesCold Satines at 10c per yard, value 26c 1 Irish Lawn and Crepon at 6c per yard. 150 doz Chtlren's feet black Hose, sizes 6 to 9 at 10c per pair. O W. J. Werthheimer & Bro. ? ' on either strike it or you don't strike it." said liuis Minzer. who returned ye-terijay from ilawsoh t'lly, in speaking of tin country. ".V man must not think lie is going to the Klondike to hud a mining i la i m t hat will make 'at leaiil a living' for him. He will find Uial it will pay him $-." or $100 a day, or it will not pay him a cent, aud tho longer he works it the poorer he will become. I never in my life saw so much wealth alid so much iKivcrly irowiled into so small an area as 1 saw around Dawson City. I never saw men making tin money that some men were making up there, aud at the same time saw more poverty and dlstrosa than I ever iniagintd before It is a country wbeie the conditions go to the extremes, and a man on one claim may be taking out a tortune while his neighbor is short of pro-visions. And the law of the country la a farce In Its effect UHn an alien. An American must pay a royally of ten ceuts on the dollar for what gold he takes out; he must pay a miner's license of ten dollars a year, and he must pay fifteen dollars for recording a claim. A claim must be recorded every y ear, ami at the end of the year the claim still belongs to t.'iL queen. A man is never sure of his rights. In fact, it sometimes looks as if there weie no lights for an alien, for he may work a claim one year, complying with all the requirements, and the next year he will lilt.) thai some one else recorded it- possibly for an uncle or a cousiu. who lias inn yt t airiel on the ground."

It is a large building, and in a good location Frank Goody, of Lead, was in liawson at the time Mr. Minzer first reached there, but he returned lo the I'nUed Statin on the vessel with Mr. Minzer. William Loei paid is at liawson, but is not doing very well.
