Th following lmVreatlns; letter was re
ceived yesterday by Chaa. Finch from his
brother In Juneau, Alaska:
Juneau, Alaska, March , ISM.
We arrived In Juneau all right and are
enjoying th beat of health. The trip
up was so far beyond my powers ot de
scription that I will not attempt to go
Into detail, but can only aay that I
never enjoyed anything more In my life.
W left Tacoma on Tuesday on th
steamer Topcfca. Quit a nujnber from
Tacoma took passage, and every berth
was taken. Fortunately I secured mine
In advance, and bad but one companion,
and he of my choice. Others were leas
fortunate. fully twenty people being
obliged lo sleep on th taldea and floor,
and It was necessary to set two table
for each meal. I sat at the head of on
of the table and was well provided for.
W did not stop at Beadle, but took on
freight and passengers at Port Town nd.
The waters of the Sound are simply
beautiful and as deep and as clear as
they could be. The mountains rise right
out of the water and It would be Impossi
ble to find a beach In most places. All
the country Is covered with a heavy
growth of timber, and th strangest part
of It Is'that It grows right down to th
edge of the water. It Is Just like this
all the way up to Alaska, although th
tre-w are not quit aa large further north.
We do not get out Into the ocean at all
on the way up. but take the Inland pas
sage. Mountains are on each side of
the strati, sometimes being over Ave
thousand feet high. The water Is over
ten mile wide In-aom place and In
others only a few hundred feet- Wherever
one goes, th depth la over a thousand
feet, and In many places over a mile.
In some places the mountains rise almost
straight out of the water and on- won
der how tbe tree can grow on them.
Many waterfall are seen and a one gets
near Alaska, they are froaen solid. We
met several small Icebergs, but It Is too
early to see many of them yet.
At Victoria we took on passengers and
some freight and nearly every one took
In the town. It Is as slerpr a place as
one could find and so different from
American cities that we were Inclined
to laugh at It. They have an immense
stone government building that will soon
be finished, but aside from that there Is
not much of Interest In the place.
The next atop was at Nanalmo, where
we took on coal, remaining over night
and half the next day. as one of the pas
sengers died suddenly and the coroner
had to hold an Inquest. They have Im
mense coal mine there, but they are a
number of milea Inland and so we did
not see them.
From Nanalmo to Mary Island I a
long run and the scenery Is fine all the
way. At this place we took on custom
house officials, who examined baggage.
We stopped at Wrangle in the night
time, so did not get a chance to see
the place. As soon as we got Into Amer
ican territory we began to see Indian
village and stopped at some of them.
They are a very queer people and some
time I will tell you something of their
We arrived In Juneau Sunday night and
I was met by my old friend, Lloyd Win
ter, of the well known firm of photog
raphers here. Winter ft Pond. It la
pretty cold here, with about eight or
ten feet of snow on the ground and the
thetrmometsr away below the freexlng
point. There Is ice everywhere and the
windows are frox.'n every morning when
we get up. There Is not a vacant house
In town, and a great deal of building Is
going on. Rents are extremely high and
property Is very valuable, so one has to
have quit a capital In order to do busi
ness here. Winter goes out every year
In his boons to get new view and haa
Invited me to go with him In about three
weeks over the Chllcoot pass. This Is
the route that the Yukoners go over and
we will be with some of them all the
time. Then I am to go hunting bear
and caribou and flsh for salmon and
halibut, so that you see I am In a posi
tion to enjoy life very much.
The town Is full of miners and fellowa
who have come here In search of work,
and aa each steamer comes loaded you
can Imagine the result. It Is almost Im
possible for a man to obtain employment,
and so those who have any capital buy
an outfit (about $250) and try to g-et Into
the Yukon country. It Is a very difficult
trip and requires lots of nerve and en
durance, and when a man gets in he Is
not sure of anything. Nearly every day
we ret reports of men freexlng hand and
feet, and occasionally a death Is reported.
One party had to eat their dogs, as they
became stalled and ran out of provisions.
The thermometer goes down to ) and 80
below aero and It Is almost Impossible to
keep comfortable. Circle City, located
on the Yukon river, has about 100 In
habitants, and la growing every dsy.
Everything- commands a fancy price, as It
Is difficult work getting anything Into
that country. I will probably go aa far
as the lakes that form the head of the
An Immense mountain towers above
this town, and at the present time Is
covered with fifteen or twenty .feet of
snow. Some places are too stejp for
snow ty hold on to and so It mak-s tl.?
picture nil the more fascinating. Th?
mountain Is filled with gold ledges and
numerous claims are being worked nil
th time. The Silver Bow basin Is about
three miles up the canyon, while dirrctly
across from Juneau Is the celebrated
Troadwell mine, which operate two hun
dred and fifty stamps, and turns out
$75,(XX every month from a low grade
ore. There Is a small city over on the
Island that Is entirely supported by this
mine. The mills are operated by water
power and run day and night, Sundays,
holidays and all tho time that they can
work In edgewise.
Yesterday I fished for herring with
what Is called a rake. This la a long
pole with sharp nails for about thte
feet from the end. It Is put Into the
water and brought to the surface with
Having Hoe Cake Soap in
your Jtitcnen or
a quick stroke, and as a rule will hav
from tbre to a doxen flsh on It about a
foot long. I got a boat one-third full
In half an hour and enjoyed th nov-lty
very much. Did you ever e such fish

you, but will defer them until another

THE SURPRISE PARTY.
To the Editor:
W had a surprise on Mis Dealey,
Shtvely School, Room 4. this afternoon.
Nearly everyone In the whole school
knew about It but the teacher.
When the teacher cam In she was
much surprised at the party and did not
see how we could keep It from her.
When tha refreshments ware passed
around every on In th room had some.
W sent some to all the teachers In
W had cake, oranges, nuts, candy,
cookies and lemonade, and had a very
good time. ONE OF THE BOYS.
The news about the Salvation Army la
rather disquieting. Balliiurton Booth,
the son ot the general, has becoro an
American cltlsen. He like America
and American way. Naturally he em
ploye Atneiioana to do his official work,
and why shouldn't ba? But th old
gentleman, who visited this country a
while ago, doesn't love us. He Is Eng
lish, you know, and wants to officer the
American Salvation Army with English
men and to give a decidedly English
coloring to th whole concern. Bo he
has ordered his son to resign, and it la
rumored though I hop It Isn't true
that he Intends to oust all the native
and put English men and women In their
places. Not that the work Isn't being
done well, but that It Isn't being done
on the English plan. It looks as though
the roirrmander-ln-chlef cares a good deal
more for English souls than he does for
those of the American type. He puts
his nationality ahead of his religion, and
If he persists In that sort of thing the
Salvation Army will very soon have
seen Its best days. It would be a pity
If the man who started the grand move
ment should break It all up In conse
quence of his personal prejudices.
FOR THE SOITH POLS.
An expedition Is about to start from
London for the South Pole, or the region
thereabout. The prime object Is. of
course, commercial! that is to say. to
catch whales. We don't need as many
whales aa w did years ago, and the
fishery has to a certain extent died out.
If the whales can get along without vs.
we can get along without them, so long
as coal oil holds out. What with kero
sene and Incandescent lights, we can
manage to find our way without stum
bling. The whales have a value, and
are worth catching If It doesn't cost too
much to find them. It Is supposed that
they are holding a mass meeting some
where In the Antarctic regions, and these
English adventurers are going dotrn
there to report proceedings. The ex
pedition will take along with It some
scientific gentlemen, who will explore
that rich field as far as possible, but
the South Pole has always ben more
shy than its sister In the north. How
ever, there are deep sea soundings to be
taken and the flora and fauna of the
depths are wonderfully worth investiga
tion. DESERVED CONS1DF.RATION.

first intimation of danger waa th cry,
"Breaker on th port bow," from th
man on the lookout. A heavy fog pre

the vessel sailing past the mouth ot Uf
Immediately after th warning the cap
tain attempted to wear around, and bad
almost succeeded when the vessel struck
and swung broadside on, with her hfad
to the southward. Th after port and
starboard boat were at once el'ared
way and lowered. Th mate, who Lad
charge of th lee boat, attempted to
put out to sea. but, owing to th strong
current, was forced to allow her to drift
In shore. The boat which had been low-
J ered on the weather side, whtl rounding

j frightful manner and badly damaging1 th

I The British vice-consul at this port,
; P. L Cherry, received a telegram from
: Captain Currie yesterday statins; th dead

j Captain Currie refused to make any
I statement in regard to th loss of th
I vessel, reserving the facta for the court
. of Inquiry, which will be held soon,
j Owing to th fact that th vessel struck
! seven miles from th Ilwaco Beach life-
saving atarion, 'the services ot the life

j crew. However, a life boat was hauled
I to the seen of the wreck.

Iron ship of 1S7 tons register, and waa
built on the Clyde In 1875. She is owned
. by the Allen line, ot Glasgow, and la'
; the last of that company's one large Una
. of sailing vessels. She sailed from
- Shields August 15 and arrived at
Cailao Dec. , 1895. The same company
owned the ship Sirathblane, which was
. wrecked about eight miles . south ot
Ocean Park on tha night of November
1 The Glenmorag Is lying high and dry.
i At low water one may walk around her.
Parties who returned from the beach
! ay they do not think she will go- to
, pieces for some time, as tho aea Is quit
smooth. The probabilities are that she
may be hauled off. but It Is thought the
largest and most powerful tugs on tha
coast will be required for the work. Th
