Another Interesting Letter
From Rev. Patton
On board the Reliance, Mon
day, Oct. G, 1913, near Hot
Springs, Alaska, 80 miles up the
Tnnana river. -Dr. II. 0. Brown,
wife, friends and brethren of
St. Johns, Oregon:
We are now about 200 miles
from Fairbanks. When we think
of the distance already traveled,
the few miles between us and our
destination seem small. Yet we
are farther from Fairbanks thar
wo were when at Circle on In jl
Wednesday. By trail wo could
have then reached Fairbanks by
traveling overland 1G0 miles.
We have now traveled on our
fifth steamboat, being transfer
red three times in the river by
lashing the boats together. The
rivers are getting very low bo
causo of cold weather in the
mountains. The Tanana is a
swift stream and really too shal
low for easy navigation at this
time of year. Wo have been al
most 28 hours going less than
80 miles. Not infrequently does
tho vessel strike a sandbar and
has to twist about before getting
loose. The boat is pushing n
barge with probably 150 tons of
freight. There are more pas
sengers than regular accom
modations, so a lot of the men
sleep on standees in the freight
room. This is the last vessel up
tho Tnnana to Fairbanks this
The Tanana volley is indeed
a beautiful plain, covered with n
growth of underbrush among tho
spruce and other timber. Wo
passed Hot Springs at 7 a. in.
Hero tho river flows only a short
distance from the hills and
mountains to tho north. Tho
snow now comes close down to
tho vftlUty. "The atmosphere hero

This isn small steamboat com
pared, with tho others wo had
been on. Sho had been used on
tho Bmaller rivers until just re
cently. Sho made n number of
trips up tho Koyukuk during tho
summer. They carried in all, to
the minors in those parts, about
500 tons of freight and pro
visions. Sixty tons of tho 500
wero rum. I really believe that
would bo a very good proportion
to all parts. Not far from one
half the cargo on this trip is
rum. Even tho drinkers them
selves say it would be a great
blessing to Alaska if tho country
could be free of the awful curse.
It is now almost ten a. m. ; will
lay this asido for today.
7 p. m. Tho crow is now tak
ing on wood. The wood camp here
is run by an old pioneer by tho
name of Davis. Ho also has a
fish wheel for catching salmon
and white fish; but the most in
teresting of all tho possessions
of this hormit-liko man is his fox
ranch. He has a correll inclosed
by wire netting set deep in tho
irround. Hero he has artificial
caves for burrows in which these
little creatures sneak away when
straneers approach, They also
rear their vounir in these dens.
Ho markets tho foxes when
crown at about $900 each.
At about 4 p. m. we passed the
mouth of the Kantishna river,
where it flows into this stream,
the Tanana. The Kantishna is
seldom placed on maps, yet it is
navigable for steamboats more
than 1G0 mile3. One of tho pas
sengera told us some of his ex-
neriences where he spent a win
ter seven years ago 265 miles up
the Kantishna prospecting. As
we see these rivers and learn of
the vast territory which they
drain, more and more we get
some trrasn of the vast territory
of Alaska. We have now been
steaming un the Tanana for
nearly 39 hours, and are almost
exactly half way from the mouth
of the river to Fairbanks, hence
we should at this rate reach Fair
banks at least by noon Wednes
day. The lights were turned on
this evening at 4 Mo. mey an

rapidly from now on. About 4

Oct. 7. 7 o. m. Supper is now
over. We, indeed, had a great
spread: Mashed potatoes, sliced
tomatoes, baked heart, roast beef,
baked graling, noodles, pudding,
and many other things too nu
merous to mention. Today has
been mostly clear und the air
sharp and invigorating. During
a greater part of the day n high
range of mountains loomed to
the southeast. They seemed to
be made up of almost solid snow.

same distance from us as Alt.

more than 200 miles distant.
We iust left Ncnana. a quaint
looking Indian village of several
hundred inhabitants in and about

one-half hours there while the
crew took on wood. Tho stores
urry numerous curios and much
first class merchandise. Rev.
Mr. Betticher of the Episcopal
church is missionury to tiiese
Indians. He got on the boat to
go to Fairbanks. Ho will either
return over the ice when it cov

Tho vessel made good progress
during tho entire night. The
sun rose brightly this morning
at a few minutes past six o'clock.
The night being clear the pilot
did not have to use the search
light but little in order to see
the river channel. J had a long
talk with Rev. Betticher of
Nenuna. Ho has been nine years
n Alaska, and is really in. love
with tho country. I was re
marking to him regarding tho
apparent undone health of the
Indians which we meet on the
shore from time to time. Ho
says that tho strong, healthful
Indians are mostly out in the
woods, either hunting or build
inir littlo cabins--caches- for
storing meats and provisions for
winter. Wo see a great many
of the caches along the river.
Thoy tell mo that theso caches
are built throughout tho hunting
region to protect provisions from
dogs and wild animals. They
build them by either placing
poles, trunks of small trees as
piling, about eight feet long, or
selecting trees close together
and cutting them down high up;
thon building a small cabin, as
it wore, on stilts. Theso caches
are often built up in the moun
tains where meats can be Kent
without of necessity bringing
an entire carcass to camp at
once. An Indion village enjoys
tho result of tho hunt at all times.
If an Indian kills a moose, the
meat is common property for
the villacre. and all enjoy a feast
or famine, according to luck of
