H.M. WALLACE THE GOLD FIELD BOOMER.

Is on his way back with a big golden paper weight. - What he says.

H.M. Wallace, of Klondike fame, is expected back to Ann Arbor any day, the same roseate boomer of the Alaskan gold fields as of old. He wrote a friend in this city from Atlin, B.C., under date of Oct. 10, saying that he expected to leave in a few days for the coast and from Skaquay he expected to go to Seattle, and thence via San Francisco to Ann Arbor. Says Wallace:

"I want to tell you that we have struck it fine this year, and we now own over a score of claims in this district, some of which are among the richest of the country. When walking across a claim the other day, I picked up a yellow pebble worth about $30, and when scraping bed rock on one of our claims last week, one of my men picked up a golden boulder, weighing 4 oz., 4-pwt. and 13 grm. It makes a very unique paperweight, in which capacity it is now serving on my desk of natural undressed wood."

Mr. Wallace is booming the U.S. and Dominion Mining Co. But he will be in Ann Arbor in a few days to speak for himself.
