should bear in mind that when it

LETTER FROM H. J. THORNE.
. Sheep Camp, April 7th '98.
.Well here we are at Sheep Camp with
all our stuff and a hard proposition
ahead, but I guesa we will be able to get
over it someway. On the moraine of
March 17th, we had our Btuff hauled up
about Vt mile3 from Dyea, and then
made our first camp on St.Patriek's Day
and everything in shape for moving.
On the morning of the 18th, we started
out with our sleds with 475 pounds each
and took it about eight miles, getting
back about 4 p. m., and it was a big
day's work too, and the next day we
made two trips about six miles with
lighter loads, and so on till we reached
the canyon on Sunday, March 21, about
nine miles from Dyea, with our camp
outfit. We stayed there until we got
everything up here, which is about four
miles and about half of this is through a
canyon, which is from 20 to 50 feet in
width, with only one wagon road, and
there is where teams with all kinds of
sleds, single horse outfits, dog teams and
men with sleds, and packs on their
backs get mixed up in great shape.
The walls of the canyon are perpendicu
lar and about 60 fe-t high on an average
but of course it if a mountain on e ich side.
At an early date in summer it is iinpas
sililo as it is full of water. The roads
from here to the Scales, wli ich is about
three-wiles, is fearfully steep.- -
I can now say that I have been over
Chileootf Past). It is a great sight to see
thu mass of p ople in the great ritli to
get into the country. From Dyea to the
canyon, about nine miles, is a complete
string of men with sleds, dog teams and
single horses and also a great many oxen
going hack and forth, Besides this is a
wagon road linod with teams and wagons
hauling tons to the ranyon, which is the
first main stopping place, and here the
wagons transfer their loads onto the
bob sleds, then from the mouth of the
canyon, up here, about four miles.
There is cnlv the one road and it is as
busy as Washington street in Portland.
From here to the Scales, everything has
to be put on small sleds, drawn by one
horse, as teams cannot go up there. One
horse can only pull about 400 pounds
on a small Yukon sled. From here to
the Scales is a mass of people. Then
comes the climb to the summit. Steps
are cut in the snow and a mass of men
are continually passing up. In coming
back down the Pass all we had to do was
to sit down and we were at the bottom
n a few minutes, while it takes 35 min
utes lo go up.
There is a large glacier up here on the
mountains and part ol it broke off a few
minutes ago and sounds like a cannon
as it roars for a lona time after. The
scenery here is grand with the beautiful
covered mountains, and the northern
lights are magnificent.
We are camped about one-fourth of a
mile Tom Campbell's bunk house. The
price of beds range from 25 cents tofl,
that is if you furnish your own blankets,
and meal from 50 cents and upwards. A
good meal costs 75 cents here, but in
Skaguay and Dvea you can get a good
meal for 25 cents. The price of papers
here is 2" cents. There is some talk of
the duty being taken off on the 1st, the
rate now being 25 per cent on groceries,
30 per cent on hardware and 35 per cent
on clothing. Some pay ubout $15 on
a big outfit, while others pay as high as
$150. It is purely a robbing scheme.
Most of the women here wear men's
clothes so it is hard to tell one from the
Ira Hoffman stayed ith us
