BACK FROM LAND OF GOLD CiRORKK CAMrBKIX TALKS OF MILLIONS OF THE YELLOW. ONE -UN HAS MADE A RICH M iSIKE IN HIS YARD. 1'rolMnnle Quart MlnlnK NVtll Continue tor Year. Gvoige Campbell has returned to his home in Windsor from Dawson City, where he has been prospecting in the gold fields since last June. This is Mr. Campbell's second trip to the Klondike, his first trip beinpr by the overland route. The last time he went by boat from Vancouver and accomplished the journey in a comparatively short time. Tie says that many improvements have taken place -Dawson City since he was there the first time, and it now has the appearance of a modern civilized city. He gives the Canadian'government credit for many of the improvements, as a number of government buildings .have been erected this year which add greatly to the appearance of the place. Dawson now boasts of administratis fcuildihgs. schools, a courthouse, jiostomee and governor's residence. Besides -these buildings erected by the government, the business men have built fine-looking business blocks since the. five. ' The buildings are principally wooden, although there are a lew" made of brick. "There is no let-up to the amount of gold which is being mined in Klondike country." said Mr. Campbell, "and I am told that the reports of itttejfovernment officials will show tftm saJW.wy worm 01 soiu uao mined in that country tnis year- -i course, this amount does not cover over half the real output. The government officials do not report any gold , under S5.U00, and there are many men who have had this amount and smaller sums this year. Besides this, many of the old miners conceal their diggings in order to escape the government tax. so that I think a conservative estimate will place the gold output of the Klondike this year at fully ?40,000,000. An Rich a Rver. "The claims appear to he just as rich as they were when I paid my first visit to the gold country. Miners arc -finding new veins every day and, when a rich find is reported, there Is a stampede "f the floating population in and 'around Dawson City. To give you an instance of the way in which gold is found In that country, I will tell you of a strike that was made just before I left for home. On the opposite of the Yukon river from Dawson City, a number of people have erected shanties to live in. but none of them ever dreamed of prospecting for gold iu that 'neighborhood. However, one day a man h id occasion to make an excavation near his house and was surprised to notice the indications of gold in the gravel. He washed a pan of the dirt and the result was so good that he immediately staked out his claim and went to work. Other settlers followed suit and the news of the strike soon found its way to Ihe city. There was a stampede for the west bank of the river, and when I visited the place miners were taking from $90 to $100 each per day from the dirt, and, as there Is a long stretch of territory the (juantlty of gold which will be taken out there this year will run up into . the millions. 88,000 to the Ton. "In my opinion there will ne mining operations carried on in that country tbr many years, as there appears to be Bo limit to the gold found in the beds of the creeks. Besides this there is the Quartz mining which is now beinpr developed. This Is the kind of mining I am interested in and I am perfectly Satisfied with the result of my trip. f5 have brought home some samples of the free-milling ore. which assays $8,000 per ton. The country is full of hills which, no doubt, hold millions of dollars worth of gold, and this will, through time, become the only mining carried on In the country. Last turn-mer three: large crushers were taken into the country and next spring the .quartz mining will commence in earnest. , i. . "There are some people who have gold mines without digging for the precious metal. They are the gardeners who went into the country and commenced the cultivation of the land in the valleys. They are now growing all kinds of vegetables which are just as good as those grown in Essex county. "Potatoes are a splendid crop there this year, the yield being about 300 bushels to the acre. The planting is done in the fore part of May and the roots are harvested in September. These gardeners have no trouble in disposing of their potatoes at $12 per bushel. Cabbages bring $1 a head and turnips sell at $8 per bushel. Celery, beets, beans, carrots and other garden truck also bring good prices and the gardeners are growing rich. Great Sumner In Damon. "This has been a great summer In Dawson. When I left there on October 8 there had been no frost and the hills and gardens were full of all kinds of hardy flowers to bloom. Many people spent the summer there enjoying the healthy air and they have come out this fall in the best of health. It is the land of the midnight sun.

NEW FAILMAY MEN'S ORDER CANADIANS PROPOSE TO MEET SOON' FOR ORGANISATION. I Ottawa, Ont., November 3. A move-i ment is on foot to organize the Ca- nadian Order of Railway Men. inde- pendent of the international bodies. which now control the various orders i in Canada. Those directly interested ' in the movement arc the engineers. firemen, trainmen, conductors and telegraphers connected with the railways of the Dominion. Ithas been demonstrated to Canadian railroad men that, as an organized body, they have no prestige iu their own country, owing to their connection with international organizations. Canadian railway men remit over $150.-000 a year to the headquarters of these international associations in the United States, if sufficient encouragement is given to the movement steps will be taken to call a ronvention to meet at Ottawa about November 20 to establish a grand division. The prospectus, just issued, says it ic intMndori if, make a national' or ganization, conducted and governed by Canadian executives: to assist members in sickness and disability; to provide an insurance department; to promote favorable legislation for railway emploves. and to oppose unjust anti-railwa'v legislation, and to limit the supplv of skilled railway employes. The' proposed order will curtail expenses by doing away with class organization and placing the affairs in one corporate body, rendering it unnecessary to contribute to the maintenance 'of five grand lodges, and finally to insure recognition with railway property managements by placing affairs in the hands of grand officers who are British subjects and therefore not liable to be placed in the humiliating position of being refused an audience' 6$.. account of being foreigners. THREE GIRLS FROM THE S00 CAME TO DETROIT WITHOUT THEIR MAMMAS' CONSENT. RENTED A FLAT. BUT WERE DISCOVERED BY POUCB. Infntuation of One for a Bellboy Has Subsided, Jennie, Carrie and Ada were tired out when they were introduced to Mrs. Hines, the matron at police headquarters, yesterday noon. They did ilot seem to feci very bad because they were prisoners, for the matron wa so kind to them and provided them with such a pleasant cot upon which they were soon asleep. Ada Bishop, Jennie Miller and Carrie Scott, aged 14, 16 and 17 years of age respectively, were found near the Michigan Central depot and. Patrolmen Shaw and Verpagel. appreciating that they were strangers, questioned the girls closely. They all admitted that they lived at Sault Ste. Marie, or very close to that city. Jennie asserted that she had about $S0 in the bank and that she drew out enough to pay the transportation to Detroit. Carrie came here, she 3aid, for her health and, as for Ada, she simply accompanied the other two girls. Carrie, however, did not deny that she had been In communication with a certain bellboy employed at the Wayne hotel and it Is suspected that the girl's principal reason for leaving home was to visit her beau. It was learned that the trio arrived on the train between 9 and 10 o'clock yesterday morning and that they had rented a room in a flat on Woodbrldge, near First street. The officers will try to get the rent money back and it, with the $29 75 which they have, will assist the runaway girls in getting back home again. They are tired of the romantic element of their adventure and are very anxious to see the Soo once more. Capt. Culver received two dispatches from the parents of the girls last night. The first asked the police to locate three runaway girls with red "tomoshanters." Having received the telegram from Supt. Downey that the girls had already been found here, the fathers sent, the following dispatch: '"Hold girls. Will be down as soon as possible. "MAT MILLER. "THOMAS BISHOP." The girls insisted, after they woke up in the afternoon, that their mission in Detroit was to secure employment in a laundry. Holy Redeemer Bazaar. Bishop Foley was present at the opening of a bazaar at Holy Redeemer school hall last night. The booths are very attractive and were well patronized by the large crowd.

WARNER USED HIS B ES T TE A M CARLISLE INDIANS WERE AS STRONG AS WHEN THEY MET HARVARD. MICHIGAN IN ABOUT SAME CLASS . ' WITH CRIMSON. NO CHANGE IN. THE FIGHT FOR WESTERN CHAMPIONSHIP. After a thorough, .study of the lineups of the Indians in the Cornell and Harvard games, there is ample food for reflection over the result of Saturday's game at Bennett' I'avk in which Michigan defeated the Redskins by a score of 22 to 0. ' A wail wwj: up after the game been use -Michigan did not come up to expectations and could score but 22 points oh an apparently crippled aggregation. On the surface it would seem that a slump had struck the Wolverines, when the big score against Buffalo is take.'i into consideration. When "Pop" Warner came to D tr.iit with his warriors bold.-1 p held a consultation with himself and then sent out reports that the Indians were badly crippled and he would have to fall back on the substitutes. This gave the Michigan enthusiasts: .much encouragement and almost every one predicted at Ann Arbor that the" score SIGNIFICANT COMPARISON Against POSITION. CORNELL. Left end Lett tackle...

Saul Decora .Yarlot.... ..Palmer... would beat Harvard's. Things took a different turn when the Redskins lined-up and it was noticed that most all the regulars were in fit shape. Beaveri who played so well in Satur-dav's game, is the regular left end on the team. Lubo's right position is next to Beaver, although he did not prav there in the games against Harvard and Cornell. Phillips is the regular guard, now that Capt. Wheelock will be out of the game for an Indefinite period. Chesaw has his place safe at center and he played part of the game against the Ann Arbor boys, showing that he is not a wreck. White, Dillon, Hare, Johnson and Williams, all regular men, were also in Saturday's game. The i.nlv real weak spot Warner can lay claim to was in the backfleld. It was his intention to play his subs against Michigan and keep his stars in fit shape for the game of November 16, when the Indians play Pennsylvania. Above all others, this is the game Warner has designs on and he did not care to run any chances of having his best men sent to the hospital. Carlisle started out with five second team men, but Michigan set the pace too Fast, and to prevent the Wolverines from making too big a score, Warner was forced to resort to the regulars, alleged to be cripplers. Warner himself admitted that he put in a team against Michigan that will be as strong as the one that is to buck the Pennsy line, and the 'varsity eleven deserves as much credit as Harvard for triumphing over the roaming tribe. Leroy did not distinguish himself In the Harvard game and It Is not likely that he would have done so at Bennett park. He and Halfback Damar jumped the team and school when the Carlisle train reached, Detroit. . Their whereabouts is unknown arid Warner Is now sending out handbills in an effort to locate the jumpers and bring them back to camn. He would use them in the Pennsylvania game. The size of Saturday's score was all the more surprising from th fact that in every game this season. Michigan s scores "were exceedingly high. The speedy manner in which the redmen were mowed down was a revelation to Coach Warner and his charges, and if Michigan's interference had been somewhat better, a larger score .would have been piled up. After three attempts on the part of Carlisle with the "wing shift" play, in which substantial gains were realized, the Wolverines solved the puzzle and on several occasions, when the Indians worked it, the man with the ball was pulled back for a loss. In punting Sweeley completely outclassed the Carlisle man and his spirals went for greater distances. Taking the work of the 'varsity against the Indians, it compares favorably to Harvard's and better than Cornell accomplished, and just now there is not a follower of the Michigan team who does not believe that Yost's men can give the Crimson and Ithacans all the battle they could ask for. it was easily foreseen that there would be little change in the fight, be-twe?n the western universities for the championship. Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota are still in the running, the Badgers defeating Nebraska by a score of 18 to 0, while Minnesota vanquished the Haskel Indians. The three claimants now appear far superior to anv other teams in the west. The talk continues for a post-season game between the Wolverines and Badgers. These teams play a style of game that is similar in many respects. Such a game would settle once for all the supremacy of the pair which advocates tvio mien came. Minnesota is the best exponent of the mass plays now oper-J atlng in tnis scuiion, "u suuuiu ftiie win from Wisconsin, as signs seem to point, and later succumb to either Northwestern or Illinois by reason of her exceedingly hard schedule at the close of the season, it would leave Michigan without a fair test of her merits: As far as Michigan is concerned, the Wolverines are without a first-class game on their schedule, unless Iowa Is able to give it to them. But even should Michigan beat Iowa by a larger score than did the Gophers, she will not have proved that she could beat the Gophers themselves. The Iowa ends are not so good as Minnesota's, and it is there that the Ann Arbor team is strong. Should Iowa's defense be as strong against Michigan as it was against Minnesota, Yost's men will be compelled to resort to end plays Yet Minnesota defeated Iowa bv this style of play, two of her touchdowns being made on end runs. Kt this game Michigan should double Minnesota's score with her toster men. But that will not prove thai Michigan could do the same thing to Minnesota with Rogers and Aune in the game. If Minnesota and -Michigan meet in a final game to decide the premier team in western football, the open and closed stvle of playing will receive one of the grandest tests in' the history of the game: No two teams- ever existed better caDable of playing each its own game is it should be played. --Such a test would. Indeed, decide a championship.' :'" : Now that the elevens OI tne Dig COl- leges and unlversiUeS-,iiaye Betiiea down to the hard work that comes just before tne. nnai games or tne season. It will be easier to follow their progress; The weeding put ;of a. large number of candidates of mediocre ability will lessen the problems that have confronted the coaches and enable them to devote their entire attention to the few men who form he group from which will come the 'varsity plaver and the first substitutes. At the' "'Big Four" this will enable the coaches to give undivided attention to the one or two men who will play in the. positions ,foiv which. the coaches were famous in .the past. Thus , it, will be readily. seen that from now on the standard bfTilay at these colleges-should improve rabidly; Faults that were overlooked1 in the-players In the earlv part of the season, owing to th-! work demanded of the coaches, will be quickly laid bare and measures taken to correct them.

For centuries the Dannemora iron ore mines in .Sweden have been to the iron maker what Mecca is to the Mohammedan, says Cassier's Magazine' for October. It is there that the purest iron ore commercially known to man exists. The operating company Is a close corporation.' and the ore is sold to no one outside of It; that is, the owners all possess Iron or steel producing plants, and obtain from these mines part of their supplies. They limit the production to 50,000 tons per annum, and place it at a price which might seem prohibitory but from its quality they can afford to so charge - themselves. The ore, which now comes from entirely underground operation, is magnetite, with an average of 50 per cent, of metallic iron, and from O.O025 to 0.055 per centj phosphorus. It requires very little flux in the blast furnace, as the gangue is principally limestone, and the phosphorus is of that minute quantity which generally leads one to dcubt the chemists' reputed results. The mine has been operated for at least 400 years. At first it was owned by private parties, but. later reverted to the government. In 1863 it was again taken- bv individuals, and .has been" worked ever since. Up- to 1859 the ore was disrupted by fire setting. In that year the use of gunpowder was introduced. As the present working depth is 846 feet, visiting the. works seems like penetrating the bowels of the earth. .

All things considered this Is. the greatest trotter that ha? yet appeared.

In the Kentucky Futurity, Is a faster flight of speed than any other three-year-old trotter has ever shown. Andy Welch has in view the Introduction of a new Kystem of betting on harness races, and he proposes introducing it next vear. He claims that this new system will do away with much of the jobbery so often complained of in connection with the pres. r-nt system of heat getting In explanation of his new system Mr. Wfelch said: "I will have a large board, with a sufli-ck-nt niriibor of squares to accommodate the names of all the horses starting In the race. Under the name of each 'horse will be a pad of numbers running from 0 to 500. This board will set high up in the betting r(ng, and on the platform ueneatb it will stand a bey or man whose duty it wilt be to tear (Iff a number under the name of the horse on which every ticket Is soil. The tickels will be worth f 5, each, and will be purchased at Ihe window, much after the fashion cf the old Paris nnltuals. As soon as the gong rings announcing the start of the raie there will be no more tickets sold, and the boy will leave the platform, with the board Indicating exactly what has been done on the race. Anybody can figure ur the status of the pooling at a glance. Per instance. Onward Silver, Dolly tll.l-wi-11. Dolly Dillon, Susie J. and Chain Shot start In a race: that's live horses. Well, sajf, when the. gong rings the board shows tire number of tickets gold as follows: Onward Silver. 5: Dolly Bl.dvell, 60; Susie J.. 13: .Polly Dillon. 8: Chain Shot, 0.' "See how easy It is to figure It up; Eighty-eight tickets sold -at $5 each, totef, $440. Now. say that Onward Sliver wins the ' race. There were five tickets sold on hfm.. That Jackpot of $440' goes to the holders oMhe five tickets, less. 3 per cent commission. Let's see. Five.1nto eighty-eight times. That's 588 to. each ticket, less 5 per cent 34. That leaves each holder of a ticket on the winner J84 for his Investment of ?5. In the case that Chain Shot should win there -was no ticket sold on htm. .Well, the second borse would, figure in the betting as the winner. Say the second horse was Dolly Bldwell. There were sixty tickets sold on her, so each holder of a ticket would, get $7. Thus-the public will make the odds, and If any fellow was of a to .frame uo a job ue would have tc fix every horse in the race, andthat comes pretty near being an Impossibility. Under this system the. true o?ds can -be more nearly-received (than ; in the nuctlcns or in the books, which, must depend on the auctloas for their line." , The relative number of tickets iiold will constitute the odds, and as. the public will make the odds they will be more equitable than any bookmaker could or would make; and, inslead of the proceeds of the lsaing tickets going to the bookmaker trey would go to -the hackers -of the winneri -:iess the stated commission. Mr. Welch's system certainly looks plausible. Banirtatia at Aqueduct. New York,' November -8.

Angus holds the controlling stock in the Detroit baseball club," said Attorney James MoNamara, to a Free Press representative last night. "Whllei it is . true that I paid" $13,600 to the Peninsular Savings Bank for the stock that It held as collateral for the loan made to Burns & Stallings during'the last season, and used the name of S. F. Angus as purchaser, nevertheless Mr. , Angus has nothing to do with the club. The minority stockholders approved of the loan, and as secretary of the club, I took steps to protect the Interests of the stockholders. "The bank -wanted the nioney, and to prevent any outside parties securing the stock I proposed, to Mr. Angus that he advance the money to meet the obligation and thus protect Mr. Burns' interests as well as those of the other stockholdirs: I have the note now inj my possession and no. change win result in the affairs of the club." .
