One Plant Only Working at Chatanika, Olnes and Lower Vault.

This is the betwixt and between season for the placer workers when they are ceasing summer work, while they have not yet started winter development, hence it is rather quiet on the creeks reports Ed Stroecker, of E. R. Peoples’ store, who is just back from a tour of the neighboring valleys.

At Chatanika, Stroecker found only one plant at work, the remainder having finished for the season.

Down at the mouth of Dome, Barney Sandstrom is closing down today. Gleinschmidt ceased work yesterday noon, while Jerry Paulson expects to operate until the first of the month. Paulson is busied on the new left limit pay streak which shows a run of course gold, different from that previously found on the Niggerhead.

A little later there will be some work started on the Shakespeare group of Dome for two new days are to be let on that property.

No one is working now on lower Little El Dorado, and J. S. Bigsby has the only plan on lower Vault. He is sluicing on the Alabama Association.
