LETTER FROM W. A. LANGILLE.
lit. Hood Was an Easy Tramp for Him,
Compared to the Cnilcoot.
The following letter, undated, is print
ed in the Glacier today. It was sent
from Portland to Mt. Hood, to Mrs. Lan
gille, and by her sent to the Glacier. It
mnst have been written late in August,
and by this time the boys should be well
along towards Dawson City :
Dear Boys: We are still on the
trail, and will be for eight or ten days
We are now camped twelve miles
from tide water, with all our 6tuff, ex
cept one load, ten miles further on. To
morrow we will move camp to within
ten or twelve miles of Lake Bennett, or
Shallow lake, and come back for more
Ituff left beyond the summit about two
Talk about your trails ! This is the
blankest trail any one ever took horses
over. It is a good forty miles from
water to - water, and rocks mud and
roots to no end. We had to send the
horses in to be shod. The last trip we
lost seven shoes and the calks are off all
the others. It costs only $1.50 a shoe,
or $5 a horse. Their backs are sore in
places, and they are getting a little thin,
and if they come in tonight are all alive.
There are dozens of dead horses lying
along the trail ; some killed going over
bluffs, some with broken legs, etc. We
have one son of-a-gun of a hill yet to
cross, where several horses have been
killed, and if we make this one trip safe
over that, the rest from the summit
down is fair going, and we will be able
to pack 200 pounds. So far 150 to 175
pounds have been a load. Many pack
only 100 pounds. From morning till
n 360 horses loaded passed as here,
and there are hundreds behind who do
t reach us.
We have no boat yet. Our plan is to
get over nrst ana see it we can't buy a
boat that has been ordered by someone
else who has not gotten over. The saw
mill man wi'l not hold them at all if
they are not there at the time ordered
for. If the weather is anything like de
nt, we can sell the horses for enough
pay for the boat, and more too. They
iare selling now for $100. If wc get $50
we will be in good luck. If we had had
it en horses we could have been in there
before this and sold our horses for good
money. I gave Dr. Siddall the little
brown mare from Hood River, and he
sold her for $150. I gave Leadbetter
Cook's roan and kept the rest. The
sore-eyed, rat-tailed appalucie Lew,
made so much fun of, will take 200
pounds and walk up or down anything;
one of the best we have, but will kill
herself if we don't get away from the
cliff soon. The bob-tail from The Dalles
fell three times on the first hill, and we
thought he was a goner and left him ;
but next morning he went fine and is
as good as anybody's horse ; in fact,
there is not a train on the trail that
will do better work than oars, but it
takes all of us to tend them.
We have bad only two or three real
bad days, and we were out in them,
crossing the summit, and it rained
through oar leather coats like it would a
flour sack and cold enough... for. any one.
Maclntyre is getting thin, but Joe
Wilson is standing the tramping fine.
On. the lower trip, up here, it took us
fifteen hours or more to a round trip
not over eeven or eight miles, it being a
blockade with down horses in the way,
all day long. The constant fear of losing
a horse keeps up a nervous strain that
tires as and makes us cross as bears.
We lost lour days this week by the. trail
being blocked for repairs aud sending
the horses in to be shod. Those four
days would have put us to the lake in
less than a week from now. With no
bad luck we will be there the 8ih of
Scoviile, the New York World corres

the correspondent the Spaniards drove
out of Cuba. He spent nearly $2,000
for powder, tools, etc., to fix a cut off on
tbe Turtle Back, on another man's say
so, and all the men in camp couldn't fix
it. I went with him to look at it, he
staying in camp with us fhe, night be
fore. Mac bas been gone two days, and is
not in yet with the horses. Send word
to Hood River that we are all o. k., and
getting along with the best of them. '

Were All Coopers.
About a dozen young boys were arrest
ed last night by tbe night-watchman tor
violating the Cnrfew ordinance. They
were kept in jail for about an hour, and
then turned loose. They refused to tell
their names at first, but finally one of
them admitted that his name was
Cooper. He waB passed into the office,
and another came forward. He. too,
answered to the name of Cooper, and
the others evidently took this name 8S
a password, as every little rascal of them
called himself Cooper. Night-Watchman

minds that be was something of a cooper
himself, and had charge of a strong
barred coop, in which he would place
them over night if caught again, per
