Washington, Aug. 6.—A letter, dated
July 22, has been received ai the treasury
from a former employe of the department
now at Cape Nome, Alaska. The writer,
who has the entire confidence of the offi
“The reports of disease and death are
untruthful. The smallpox scare is all
over. There were twenty ct&ses in all. and
all of them came on the Oregon. As yet
there has been no typhoid fever; but the
season has been dry, which probably ac
counts for its absence.
“There have been twelve violent deaths
here since June 10. Four men have been
drowned, three have committed suicide
and five have been shot.
“Prospectors who have been out over
the country are Just beginning to bring
in quartz. Every sample carries a little
gold and some have been worth S6O a
ton. The season on the famed Anvil
creek has been so dry. there having been
neither rain nor snow since June 17, tha<
the creeks cannot be worked to advant
age. Each sluice box requires a five or
six-inch stream of water of considerable
force. Suicing, with fair results, is go
ing on along many of the creeks and also
to some extent on the beach.
“The day has passed, however, when
a single man can rook out $75 a day. I
have a friend who took out ssl In ten
hours, but he had three shove’.ers who
had to be paid, besides the expense of a
gasoline engine to pump water from the
sea. This was on the ground that was
worked with rockers last year.
“The story that the beach is gold to
Cape Prince of Wales is undoubtedly
false. Dredging the sand from the sea
is a complete failure.
“On the whole, I believe Nome will
boom as soon as it rains. The gold will
