for thre day laat wk, and are new
on tbelr way eaat over th old Oregon

In this otty laat Sunday 35,600 miles In
th Abbott-Detroit "Bull Dog." a new

In charg of Dr. Charles O. Perclval.
editor of Health Magaslna of New York.
While th party war In thla city they
were tha guests of th Portland Motor
ar company, local agents of tb Ab
k Silver Trophy.
The party in th' "Bull Dog" left
Portland September IS. bound for Van
couver, B. C, and ' from there took the
boat to Skagway, Alaska, and on Octo
ber 1, left Skagway on a run ' to the
headwaters of th Yukon river In an at
tempt to win th silver trophy offered
by tbe Daily Alaskan, th oldest news
paper In Alaska, to th Tlrat auto
mobile eroaelDg the famous White
pass, tb trip to be made' under tbe
car's own power to th headwater of
th river. 3. 3. Cham bar , one of
Alaska's well known guides, acted as of
flctal observer for the Daily Alaskan,
and Herbert Wheeler of Whit Horse.
Yukon Territory, superintendent of th
royal Canadian mall and stage route,
accompanied th party as far-as Car
mack,' a northwest mounted police post
located on th Yukon river. 10 roll
byond IS degrees north.
. season Bacxwara.
(Twing to tn unprecedented . warm
weather th season this year has been
unusually backward and th tourist did
not, as they expected, find th Yukon,
Pelly and Steward rivers frosen over so
they could cross and . mak Dawson,
which lies 4 (' degrees north. And as
there were no boats plying on tb rivers
at this season of the year, tb party
war forced to turn back.
Dr. Perclval tells th following etery.
of tb trip:
i "Leering Bksgwsy at I o'clock In the
morning of October 1, In a diitallng
snow storm and a heavy fog which gave
us no lookout for more thfn 10 feet, w
ataxted off. th first automobll to
croaa th Whit pas. Th tie along
th railroad track wer fcpm IS to II
Inches apart, and th aeepage of water
from ofjt tbe adjacent mountains had
worn away tbe earth from between the
ties to such an extent that our progress
was aa uninterrupted aeries of bumps
for 14 long weary hours, all up grade.
aoroaa bridge and through snow shed.
From a scenlo standpoint the trip was
on hardly to be equaled. Pas glacier
after glacier radiating all th colors
of th rainbow, you could look acroas
th clefts In th hugh snowcapped
mountains and ee tb glacier wind
their way through glistening green
spruce, and In th background far be
yond wer peeks clad In x tb eternal
snow. -For miles , we drove along the
Id of precipices where we could look
straight down Into th white pasa thou
sands of feet below. At Bennett, at
Lake Bennett, la
peopl held fort.
"We atopped to tak picture ef th
one buay ahlpyard and docka, where
thousands of steamers and beats wer
launched. Front her we drove on to
the Cariboo, wher on take th boat
for th gold field of AtaJIn. W found
that no on had been ever tb old trail
to Whit Hora for year. Four mile
out th road disappeared, having been
entirely washed out by tb element.
For II hours w built bridge and filled
in gulleys, plying th ax ad shovel
continuously. Arriving-In White Horse
at o'clock, having mad but I H mile
per hour, so that our total distance ef
11T mile from Skagway to Whit
Hora In two days was a really wonder
ful performance, and th first time It
bad been accomplished by an automobll
or any other vehicle cept th railroad
trains, and that on a track that had
cost many million dollars to build. "
Dr. Perclval is greatly e nth a and over
th wonders of Alaska and says now
that be know how to mak th north
ern trip, he will go back next year and
far surpass his preeent record.
