The north-bound train on the Heppner

about two miles south of Heppner junc

the engine and four cars off the track
and so was triumphant, even in .death.

Skaguay Bay, Alaska, Aug 23,
My Deab Fbiends :
I am still here, and it is absolutely
impossible to get on for the want of ani
mals to pack the freight over tbe mount
ains. There are some thousands here
now, stranded ; cannot get any further,
and I do not believe there will be one
in twenty who will ever see the sum
mit, let alone Dawson City. Such a
rush never was seen in the world. It
is simply immense. Thousands are
here and in Dvea, all stranded for want
of transportation : and to make ' things
worse, tbe rain has set in and tbe trail'
is now impassable, and traffic is stopped
to repair the trail, and hundreds of men
are at work doing so. Every day brings
a new steamer and hundreds of poor
fools, going they know not where. Sev
eral have come across from the Klon
dike, but no new strikes are reported
The old Ueo. w. iMder came in again
today, and it.made me sick when I did
not get a letter from yon. There is a
kind of improvised postoffice here, which
gets letters from nearly every boat that
comes in. I was in hopes that you
had sent one for me, still I know that
the Elder does not carry any mail, only
the parser is so kind as to take charge of
Tell Mr. Butler that this is a town of
tents now, but may not last long, as
there are routes that may be adopted.
such as the Dalton and Tarcoon routes
So this may be a city of snow ; but at
present it is something wonderful. He
can tell you that there was hardly a tent
when he was here ; now it is a city of
tents and shacks. I cannot describe it
to you. Tell him that where he wrote
Mrs. Butler's name on a tree out in the
woods on the trail, is now covered with
tents and board shacks. My pencil
fails me to desribe the situation, but if
Mr. Cradlebaugb were here he might,
and yet his .most vivid, grasping ideas
would fail to do it justice. It is per
fectly'awfuh I saw a man today who
was leading a mule, packed ; he also
had a pack on his own back, and a dog
leading with a pack on its back, and he
was wheeling a wheelbarrow, which was
also packed. Such are the modes of
'getting from salt water to fresh water
over at Bennett Lake. I have just seen
a man who bad carried 300 pounds five
miles on a bicycle. Now, you may not
think this is true, bat it" is.- He had a
kind of wire work fixed between the
bars, on which he roped bis goods, and
be walked by itB side.and rolled it along.
This is ' only done, to the foot of the
mountain. You cannot imagine the
different ways the poor devils are trying
to get along.. Now. fancy a bleak, windy
beach, lined with tents and hnts, and
thousands of people not only ' in misery,
but perfectly discouraged. - Think of
them trying to get over an almost im
possibility to the top of the mountain,
then sitting in an open boat 550 miles
to Dawson City ; then no prospect only
to go out to make a new discovery in
the frozen rigors ot this Alaska region,
with' the thermometer at from 60 to 80
below zero, and you have eome idea of
what any man has to go through before
he ; gets the golden shiners, if he" ever
does. . -
We have waited here with the utmost
patience to make a move, .and . hope to
the last of this week, but are .not snre,
tbe trail is eo bad. If we get through
(which I am determined to do) .we will
be of the few who do. Lwish you could
be here for one hour to see the many ob
stacles in our Way.
- Will LangiUe and party are not yet on
the summit. Dick Emmons and party
have busted up, and he is not yet on
top of Dyea pass. , Mr. Mead and the
Christie outfit are in the same fix, and
Mr. Fairfowl and company -are not on
Now, if I had not started, I would not
come this way, but go by St. Michaels,
grub or no grub. Money will buy any
thing. I shall do my best to get
through ; but a man is lost here without
his own horses to go when and where
you wish. .
Now as I write thirty mounted Cana
dian police are passing going to the
Klondike. They also have their packs
on their backs like us poor devils. They,
too, curse the country as a hard outlook ;
but they are a good lot of boys. Many
are Elks, Oregon men, P. P. A's, Ma
eonB and Odd Fellows. So you see I am
in it. You bet. -
Everybody is saying "My kingdom
for a horse !" -
August 24, 1897. As I write, it is
raining and blowing awful. It is enough
to make the heart of a lion quail, but
nothing will make me turn back until I
see that it is impossible to get through
without being frozen in on the Yukon ;
that I don't want, but if all comes to all,
I will play the violin and . Parrot can
dance the two-sUp.
Mr. Sylvester Scovell of Cuban notori
ety, is still here. He has taken up the
matter of fixing the trail and has gone
to Juneau for giant powder and tools to
work with. He intends, to call it the
New York World's trail. He, you will
remember, is their correspondent. This
trail can be made good by having "eome
head or system to it. If J. II. Sherar
was here he would have wagons over it
in two weeks.
I will not close this until I .bear from
Juneau, hoping to hear that poor Frank
is all O. K. now. What an awful thing
just when I was leaving you. Do you
know that it made me fearful all the
way, being Friday and then the boat to
break down at Astoria. It actually
made me sick, but all is over now
Nothing but cussid old mountains stick
up .against our noses. You never saw
such a lot of jolly fellows as there are
on the trails; thousands! of them and
not a cross word. -
August 25th, 2 p. m. It has been
raining for the past twenty-four hours
and blowing a perfect hurricane. We
are beginning to realize the rigors . of
this awful Alaska climate, and still we
will do our best to push onward.
Now as I must close to get this on the
out-going steamer, will close with kind
est regards to all. Good-bye, good-bye

IN the United States now enjoying food cooked in the MA
JESTIC affirm that the half has not been said in its
. praise. The manufacturers of this Range pledge them
selves that all parts of the MAJESTIC except the firebox
and tbe new series Nos. 201 to 212, are made of steel and mal
leable iron, and purchasers are assured that it is as good and
as honest as skilled labor and money can prodnce. If the parts
now in malleable iron were (as in other so-called steel ranges)
made of cast iron, the price could be greatly reduced ; but the
MAJESTIC is not made, with a view to furnishing extra
parts for repairs. ' ' .
