i Portland, Dec. 21v To. the Editor of The Journal: It is with amasement that I read an article In
the Oregonian this morning regarding the proposed steamship line to Alaska. It is surely drawing a
1 , "herring acrpss the trail" for anybody to propose connecting Junean and southeastern Alaska with Port-
land bv steamshiD lines.' Those who are conversant with the situation know that it is simply folly to
' talk of establishing steamship connection between Sksgwsy, Juneau, Sitka or any of the southeastern
Alaska points with Portland. : : ; ; . ' '''"! ' .; ' ,
Portland is entitled to the bulk of traffic; originating in "Nome and that portion of Alaska adjacent
thereto, and were we to get even one quarter of that, business we would be more then amply justified in
' any steps we might take to establish steamboat lines. This is the only part of the Alaska trade that we .
