for five years past, and always consid

in Pendleton, from Boise City, on their
way to Seattle, and went into a saloon
Monday morning for refreshments.
Shuttlewood complained of being sick
and went out the back door only to dis
appear permanently. Noren's sorrow
resulted not so much from hi9 partner's
peculiar disappearance as the fact that
he carried $85 of Neron's money, which

MAIER &. BENTON
Mr. W. S. Chipp. who left Seattle for
Skaguay on August 14th, arrived in this
city last night on the boat, and this
morning favored the reporter with a full
account of that place as he found.it
while there. . " . . .
He says of all those who went to
Skaguay, between ten and fifteen per
cent only succeeded iu crossing the pass
and getting to the lakes, and of thoee
not over five per cent have found means
Lof getting down the river, while fortv.
probably as high as fifty, per cent of
ose who landed at Dyea got to the
kes. The reason attribuied to this
that the pass is not so difficult to
cross, and natives can be hired to carry
(outfits frdm the latter more readily than
than the former. Horses and mules
ire the principal beasts of burden. A
man leading a horse can carry from fifty
to-seventy-five pounds, while those em-
ioyea tor carrying, can in some cases
take as high as 200 pounds. The na
tives are the best carriers, and can hold
ut better than anyone else, the reason
being that they are short, , heavy set,
rugged men, and the leaning over with
a heavy load does not tire them so much
as it would a taller person -who is not
accustomed to the work.
Amongst the natives of Alaska the
men do all the hard manual labor, while
he women attend to household duties
nd do fancy work, at which they are
adepts. Their embroidery work is far
superior to any done by the natives in
this country, and would arouse the envy
ot many a pretty Dalles dame who j
prides herself on being proficiext with
About 4500 horses have 'been shipped
to Skaguay, but at present not more
than 500 could be found there, the rest
having been killed on the pass or dying
of starvation. In places ten or twelve
dead horses may be Been in a heap along
the trail, which will make it very disa
greeable next summer, when the warm
weather sets iu, for persons trying to
cross this way. People may, be able to
get over on the snow during the winter,
but nexc summer it will be next to im
possible to cross from Skaguay. A road
may be built along the Skaguay river by
which way it would be comparatively
easy to reach the lakes; but as it would
take about $4000 to build it, it will prob
ably be some time before it will be open.
At present there are some 500 or COO
frame buildings in Skaguay, and as
lumber is hard to get, but few of them
are finished in a way that would make
them comfortable to live in during the
"After arriving, numerous persons
camped on the tide land, and on Sep
tember 25th an . unusually high tide
floated a number of camps, and some
met with quite a loss in this way.
About the same date the Skaguay river
rose very rapidly in consequence of the
severe rain storm's, and washed out the
bridge across the river near the town.
Some parties put in a ferry, and until
they were forced to come down to a rea-
sonable fare, they made'.on ('an
of $150 per day.
All branches of business are well rep-
resented in that placa, and in tact bo me
re overdone. Law pcoh-bits selling
liquor, but as there are no officers to
i tflct a penalty, all they can do is to
s size the liquor, and since they have
t le privilege of keeping what they seize,
ey show a great deal ot ardor in search-;
ing for it.
Some of the parties who intend going
back next spring will club together and
build a large cabin, into which they will
pile their supplies and ' leave one man
from each party to guard them, the
others returning to spend the winter it
a more genial climate.
On Sept. 29th there were two feet of
snow on the summit, while at Skaguay
there was but very little. Since that
time, however, nearly ail of tbis melted
Mr. Chinn saw Mr. and Mrs. Butler
at Skaguay, and says they have comfort
able winter quarters and are getting
alonsr nicelv. He states that both ot
them look better than they have for
years, and are contented and happy,
and seem to have ao desire to return.
As to the suffering of those on the
other side of the pass during the winter,
he says that in nearly every case they
will suffer more from the want ot the
right kind of clothing than from hunger
It would be well for many who are
contemplating going to Klondike, to
have a talk with Mr. Chipp, as he may
cause them to change their mind about
going, giving them some new ideas, and
at the same time save them about $150
