A Printer's Success.
There landed in Portland, Ore.,
fifty eight years ago a footsore
and weary printer boy looking
for a job. He came from Pitts

turn out millionaires like sau
sages. No one would have pick

Portland special to the Salt Lake
News, but that he is today the
biggest success financially in the
Pacific Northwest is universally

tditor inaepenaent:-To say
that I am lonesome is expressing
it mildly. After having been
four months with nine of the
most charming and interesting
girls that one would ever care to
meet and then part from them,
certainly make one feel that a
part of the sunshine had gone
out of life.
Yesterday they departed on
the steamer "Governor" for San
Francisco and will sail Saturday
for Hawaii Mrs. Annie Dietzel, a
friend of mine from Seattle ac
companied them. For two weeks
we have been here at the Butler
Annex, with fine connecting
rooms. It was like some ban
quet hall deserted" after they

many suit cases had gone, I did
not go to the boat well knowing
what a scene it would create.
he second week in January lam
to take a party of people to the
slands and could not spare the
time to go over now.
The girls and I love each other
very dearly. There has never
been the slightest disagreement
between us. The whole trip has
been one glorious and grand suc
cess. From Mexico to Juneau,
Alaska, a royal family . could not
have received more gracious
treatment from the best of peo
ple than that extended the Ha
waiian Bulletin SlrU, nor could
any tourists hay been more P-
preclntive than vy. "
The trip to Juneau, Alaska,
came as a surprise on a day's no
tice. Quite a party was going
from Seattle to Juneau to attend
the Republican convention. Many
were Alaskans who had come
down from Nome and other points
along the coast and interior to
attend the convention of Artie
Brotherhood, which convened in
Tacoma the week before. My
brother, Leroy Tozier, was a del
egate from Fairbanks, Alaska,
to the Juneau convention. He
had sixteen proxies in the con
vention which made him in great
"demand." I had not seen my
brother for fifteen years and you
can rest assured there was a
The four days enroute were fill
ed with grandeur and delight
for of all the scenic trips on the
American continent or any other
continent the trip to Alaska,
through the inland passage, has
no equal. It is like traveling five
days up the Columbia river. No
indications of sea sickness, and
you can drink in the beautiful,
sublime and wonderful, to your
heart's content. Often you are
so near to towering rocks you
can almost reach out and gather
ferns. Majestic mountains of
solid ice pierce the sky and shut
out the sunlight at noon. At the
foot of these icebergs will be
green forests. The effect is pic
turesque in the extreme. But I
must not spend time in endeav
oring to describe the trip that is
beyond the ability of a pen or
power of speech. Just go and
see for yourselves. It is right
here at your front door. See
America and see it in our own
Alaska. The Hawaiian girls
thoroughly enjoyed all this, and
every passenger enjoyed the
young ladies. There was- music
in the morning, music at noon,
music in the afternoons; grand
concerts in the evening and mid
night serenades. At Ketchekan
we stopped three hours. The
first man I saw on the wharf was
John Begal, collector of customs
there. It seemed pleasant to see
an old friend when so far from
Ketchekan is nestled at the
foot of high mountains. The
bay at this point recedes here
and there, making picturesque
little coves around the city, and
indicating a peacefnl harbor
through winter storms. We
walked along the shore and
through the Indian village. The
fishermen were mending boats
and children were playing on the
sand. The day was bright and
warm and resembled an early
spring morning in the Willamette
valley. Forrest J. Hurst pro
minent resident there, graciously
showed us the points of interest
and made our brief stay a mem
orable one, aud the glad hand ex
tended to the Hawaiian visitors
We were also made welcome at
the newspaper office. My, but
how a little hospitality extended
strangers in a strange land will
make them forever have a kind
ly feeling for the place.
We reached Wrangle about 11
o'clock at night and all went
ashore. Here the boat had to
wait for a tide, or something,
and as we were to be there sev
eral hours the genial hotel pro
prietor, John H. Grant in a few
moments had music going in a
big sample room and every one
joined in a dance. It was only
the passengers from the boat at
that late hour. Mr. Grant is an
other glad hand extender, and
his pleasant smile made a lasting
impression on the Hawaiian girls.
We passed many Indian Yil
liages with their historical lotem
Arriving at Juneau about 7 p.
m. we found Mayor Frank For
rest and others had prepared for
the Hawaiian visitors a reception
at the opera house. John Willis,
wife and sister, formerly of Hills

and his lovely wife, crave us their
undivided attention while in Jun
eau. Then there was CKrvwnor
Hoggett, and other territorial
officials and prominent ladies
all joined to make our three days
extremely pleasant Mr. Daniel
Kensie, of the Tredwell mine,
won our hearts by giving us an
opportunity to visit the largest
gold mine in the world. We
simply "got off the earth" by
stepping in a cage, and went

voices echoing and re-echoing

MASS MEETING TICKET WINS
WIOaOMt Oppoai Hon-LUEtit Vole and
No Enthusiasm stiownOennis
Elected Mayor by Good Vote
Election day was a very quiet
affair in this city last Monday.
There was but one ticket in the
field, though there had been some
talk of putting up another one,
but no one seemed interested
enough to do so, and the matter
fell through. Mayor Dennis is
elected, he having received K3
votes out of a total of 201. A
few voters who were dissatisfied
with Mr. Dennis, split their tick
ket for H. T. Bagley, who re
ceived a total of 38. He was
not in the field at any time and
did not expect any following at
all; hence the votes received
were unlooked for and of no use.
The men elected are all good, re
presentative business men and
have the ability of giving this
city a good administration.
Following is the vote:
A singular and very interest
ing and useful institution has
been established in the little city
of Tarare, near Lyons, France.
It is a mycological bureau where
expert "judgment is furnished
concerning mushrooms, many of
which are poisonous. Since the
establishment of the bureau no
body buy rrruohrooms which do
not carry its ticket of identifica
tion and guarantee, and all the
country people from miles around
bring their mushrooms for exam
ination. One surprising result
has been the discovery of scores
of edible mushrooms, which be
fore nobody dared to touch.
In West Australia, after five
years work, the great tranconti
nental rabbit-proof fence has
been completed. Its length is
2036 miles and the cost of its
erection has been nearly $1,215,
000. It is furnished at intervals
of five miles with systems of
traps, in which hundreds of rab
bits are captured and destroyed
daily. On the eastern side of
the fence the animals are teem
ing and vegetation is almost com
pletely absent Inside the bar
rier there appears as yet no trace
of their presence.
