W. A. Langille, who ii employed by
the government aa forestry agent in
Alaska, write to hii father, Jamea L.
LangiUe of Hood River, under-date of
September 4, stating that he was tlran
aboard the ateamM St. Fa ul, which wan
to land him at Dutch Harbor in time to
catch the Dora for Kedick, where he
wai to secure a -bidarka and .a native,
ana eo amnna the Henai peninsula.
'"Here," be continues, "I expect to
set some moose, caribou and biz baara.
When it freezes up I am going into the
Interior with the dog team tor the win
ter, and neat wmnier will work with
canoes,, returning to the ollice iu the
fall of 1000, -when I will tutva, nearly
covered1 Alaska."
A' the time of writing, Will was
recovering from a severely cut foot.
Mr. Langille hue been -id' A'luslm tince
the days of the first gold excitement
nine yean ago. He baa covered nearly
every foot of the-wwmtry. wnd' probably
knows more about tiiat region than any
other man. Will has taken notes dur
ing all his travels which will later be
published in government reporU.
Continuing Mr. Langille says:
"I found the Yakutat region very
interesting. It has some good timber
and, to far as I have seen, is the most
promising for a limited amount of agri
culture of any place visited. Lying
between the towering St. Ellas and

areas of finer sedimentary deposits,
which seem very productive. There is
also much swamp land.
"It is crossed by a number of prolific
salmon streams, teeming with fish in
season, now being taken ly i'red Stev

Yakutat bay, and a logging railroad
running southeast along the coast,
crossing the streams, which they lirtimd

Tbev also have sawmill, using the
road to get logs, tliomrb the road is -not
laid out through the bast tiwbor, as the
direct route to the best fishing was
their object.
"i made tjutt-iietBnhre
trip in the ilaufcr region, where there
is nothing bnt barren rocks, ice and
snow. Great grey and dark masses of
rock protrude through the ice. devoid
of any kind of vegetation, and stand out
in the utter natadnaas el, the pMneual
world. We pushed our way through
masses of glacial Ice, which filled the
bay from small slush to pieces half a
block in area. It ground and crushed
together In a manner to jarone'umervwt.
"I visited 'the oil regions of Koyak,
but came away very little the wiser.
There is oil there, as I saw them filling
the tanks from the English company's
well, the only flowing one there. Every
one was waiting the result of the Malio
ney well, which was then down 1,700
feet, their e peat at ion being to strike
oil at 2,500 to 3,000 font,
"They have excellent coal in that
vicinity, but there are no harbor facil
ities at all. It isn open coast, with
miles of sand spits formed by the Cop
per and C'hilkoot rivers. I had a launch
while m that- region nd fliade good
time, bat it is very expensive, and the
chawewof gutting oil -verv small, when
away from the home port.
"I have not yet visited the game sec
tion, there being none in the Yakutat
or Controller bay regions. I was on
Montague island, where the brown
bears era uippoaedi to be soi
that they drive away all comers, but I
didn't see a track.
'I got to Nome early in Jiltjr, bnt fHI
unable to get Into the field until nearly
ineiasioi tno month, and then had
only short period wl fl weather until
the time I cut my foot, which spoiled
all of Aughst. Tlie.dieur took care of
it five days in Nome, . and it promises
well bow. I had an utterly incompe
tent wii)n hand n whom 1 0011 Id not
place a bit of dependence, which still
further hindered me, but I finally got
10 me lUDuptuiiK, hunt a raft, and
when out of grub, struck a fish camp at
the mouth of tlie river, was storm
bound a week, and finally got in in
time to catch this steamer, which will
land me in Dutch harbor in time to
take the Dora for kodick.
"The Nome camp is quiet this year
quite a coutrast to the rush of last sea
son. Home think the gold output will
square the last season, while others
don't. The early summer, was very
dry, there being no rain until the storm
which kept us at sea five days, when I
went there. Later it rained too much
for even the miners, while the- shipping
was more Jtmdered -tlnm 4s nsuar in
"The introduction of hydraulic ele
vators has reduced the Milliliter of men
employed greatly, and is cheapening
tne cum 1 01 me gom materially. 1 his
of course affects the town, and business
men complain of its being quiet.
"There hare been no new or startling
discoveries in the outlying districts, but
the immediate vicinity of Nome has
opened up seme good uew ground, as
has atso the Solomon and Council dis
tricts. Theie is more or less talk of
iuarti in the Solomon region, and
ianes are working their proerty stead
ily. The tin of the York region prom
ises better each year, and from 60 to
75 tons of ore will be shipped this fall,
which will give-it a good test.
"Captain Wrttsonvame hit Noma on
this ship, and has about given up the
Midas creek proposition. When I got
mere me wnoieot Home was anxiously
awaiting the cue to start. It never
came, and the promoters of the scheme
have disappeared as completely as If the
earth had swallowed them. The divi
sion judge and court clerk were mixed
up in it, and that created no end of
scandal, and comment thought it broke
itoth of them. The pwblie still blame
them for countenancing it by giving it
their support at all.
"As uai'al, I will mist the frtrit-nehwm
but I am partially even by tnetjnaatity
of blue berries I had while laid up in
the Norton bay region, and will prob
ably get more en the Keoai. I have
been much on the move,- and have only
had mail three times since coming
north, and will get less in the future.
They have the rirelea In operation
from St. Michael to Nome, whiuh gives
direct connection with tlie outside
world, and the completion of the cable
from Sitka to Seattle will reduce the
rate so that people can use it."
Solas- Srawiaablr. Advice.
It may be piece of superfluous ad
vice to urge people at this season of the
year to lay Its a supply of Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy. It la almost
sure to be ueeded Wore winter Is over,
and muoh more prompt and satisfac
tory reatUta are obtained when taken as
soon as a void is oontrtwted and before
it has beeeai settled in the system,
which wn only be done by keeping the
remedy at hnud. This remedy U so
widely known and so altogether good
that no on -should hesitate about buy

Newspapers ire roasting the verticil

that "the chump who are responsible
for foisting such a fad on defenseless
children of the state ought to be rounded
up and placed in the penitentiary,
This much can be said in defence of the
system however. It is legible, and that
is quite an important quality, as any-

Oregon Fruit Exhibit At 8U Louis.
In the last istuo of the Western Fruit
Grower there was an editorial descrip
tion of tlie horticultural exhitut at 1st.
Louis. Oregon's display rat mentioned
as follows:
"Oregon has a good exhibit, in charge
of a very plearant young man named
(ialloway- There are no frills about
this enhibib Simply a showng of good,
commercial fruit. The apples have
uniformly been of good quality, quite a
feature having been made of the Oregon
Newtown Pippins, which have made a
record of which the stale is proud. The
fruit from this section is all packed in
boxes, and the exhibits have been made
up, Mr. (ialloway ava, from the com
mercial packages. This Hiieaks well for
the quality of fruit which Oregon sends
out to the world. At the time of our
last visit there in August Mr. (ialloway
had on exhibition some cherries which
beat anything in the building. They
were Bing cherries of enormous size and
most excellent quality. The meat is
red all through, very rich and sweet.
The cherries are very firm and of enor
nius size. Asked as toexactsizeof Uiem
Mr. Galloway taid, "Well measure
them." Twelve Bing cherries placed
side by side meaaured thirteen and
throe-quarters inches thus the cherries
were more than an inch in diameter.
Single cherries measured more than
three and a half inches around them.
Oregon has primes on exhibition, too,
and at certitin times cooked prunes are
served to visitors, the frmt-urower
representative was given a box of these
prunes, and must say they were the
best he ever ate large and rich, parting
readily from the seed and without the
flatness of some of the pitmen on the
Adjudged Not Insane.
James Koch of Mount lood, who was
taken to The Dulles last week by sheriff
Hexton, charged by some of his neigh
bors that he was itiHane, was examined
before Judge Lake and Dal let physicians
and discharged. This is the third time
within a year that Foss has been exam
ined on tlie charge of insanity. Siieak-
ing of tlie case the Dulles Chronicle
says :
"After being examined as to his sanity
yesterday afternoon by Dr. E. K. Fergu
son and Judge Lake, J. E. Foss, who
who was brought up from Mount Hood
supposed to beinsane,wus discharged, no
evidence of "loose wheels" being appar
ent, llie case was an amusing one and
seems to hinge on a difference of opinion
between Foss and a former sweetheart
of his. The woman declares that he is
insane because he insists on making her
marry him. Not having seen the alleged-object
of liis affection we are un
able to judge. On the other hand the
man declares she is "a pesterln' of him"
to marry her and he "lust won't do it."
This being leap-year there may lie
method in his madness. At any rate
the people of the Mount Hood neighbor
hood saw reasons for considering him
unbalanced and were instrumental in
having him examined. How his exam
iners (being married men) explained
their verdict when they reached home
Premium Corn From Mosler.
Leo Evans was down from Motier last
Thursday afternoon and loft a sample of
yellow Hunt corn at tlie li lacier olhce,
The corn was grown hv Uncle John Mil-
er, and would do credit to the famous
oorn -fields of Illinois and Kansas. Mr.
Mr. Milor has seven acres of this corn
The corn yields well, and finds reiulv
sale for seed in the spring at 2 cents a
wosier expects to take the prize on
corn at the Hood Itiver fair next week.
Mr. Evans cays he will have a good
apple crop this year. He and J. P. Car
rol have the largest apple orchards in
the Mosler country, and Mr. hvantesti
mates their crops will amount to 5,000
mixes each.
MoBier farmers this summer sent 9
carload shipments of Ituliai, prunes to
Eastern markets. In addition Iq the
car shipments, 14,000 crates went by
express. The prices were generally
good, says Mr. Evans, but the railroad
company wits nimble to supply the cars
as needed, and some ol the fruit got to
ripe before It could lie shipped.
