FREE EXCURSION FOR EXAMINER SUBSCRIBERS
To The Great
KONDYKE GOLD FIELDS
On May 15, 1898, the Weekly Examiner will decide on the three subscribers to be presented with tickets as above, and the names and addresses of such will appear in the first issue of the Weekly Examiner immediately following May 15, 1898.
One of the conditions is that all subscribers who desire to compete must cut out and preserve the coupons which will appear regularly in each week’s issue of the Weekly Examiner commencing with this, until May 15, 1898. Other conditions and methods will be published subsequently.
If any coupons of the series are missing, the lack of such will bar the subscriber from the competition.
This proposition is open to all present subscribers of the Weekly Examiner, without exception. Everyone desiring to compete has the privilege of doing so provided he has all of the coupons for the series.
Those whose subscriptions to the Weekly Examiner expire between now and May 15, next year, and who desire to enter into this competition should be extremely careful to see that their renewals are sent to this office in time that they may not miss any of the coupons, all of which will be numbered in consecutive order.
Back numbers of the coupons will not be offered for sale.
Each of the three subscribers to whom the excursion tickets will be given has the privilege of selling his return ticket should he decide to remain in the gold fields, and he should be able to sell such return ticket at a price sufficient to enable him to lay in a year’s supply of provisions.
The last steamer during the recent season has departed for Klondyke, and from now until June of next year it would be neither wise nor safe for anyone to attempt this perilous journey. In June of next year there will be a tremendous rush for the Kondyke country, and it is to meet such contingencies that we have made our present arrangements.
At Juneau the freight has accumulated in such large quantities for transportation by the Chilkoot Pass, that it will be impossible under existing transportation facilities for the same to be handled within the next twelve months. The only sea route is by the Yukon river, and that is now closed and will remain closed until June of next year.
Renewals can be sent to this office direct or through postmasters or local agents or authorized traveling solicitor.
