Editor Stab'sman: As I write we are
forging ahead steadily toward Dutch

time since leaving Astoria we saw
laud today. : In the early momiiis

hid them from view. At one time five
peaks were In sight. Mile . after mile
we galu-d on the land till at about 3

very narrow, not Wing more than half
a mile wide, the tide rushing through
strongly. Ou both sides the moun

Tuesday morning. June 5. At 2J3t
we cast anchor In Dutch Harbor: I
have never seen a .more picturesque

like a mole shoe. land-locked, nnmn

the harbor there was great anxiety
among tin? iKissenrers to kaow twbetb

Into view.; Then a cheer lroke loose,

sickest, each claimiug the hoinir.
Reeves, Basbor, Jesse lieorge, myself
aud several other Salemites were af

feeling their worst I heard one man
say: "Ami to think I mortgaged my
ranch for this. Ben was saying In a
wte-ts'gone voice: "Why didu't I take
Tlilks advice ami stay at home. Why
In thunder can't tlie blamed old tub

Oscar very much Incensed him by tell

secoutl-class msseugers are a rather
disgruntled lot. We tiought stHoutl

lssird, our cheeks read "steerage."
We are piled In tlie hold like sardines.
Thereare 204 of us. and the table only
stmts thirty-six. This necessitates set
ting six tables. The table is between
the bunks, which are in pairs three,
decks high. With the odor of burnt
grease, onion and sk-k men. ami tlie
indescrilia lily "close" smell of an In
sufficiently aired licdroom, one's appe

The tood is good and abundant, but

There are men on lioard who have
come thousands of miles to go on this

Maine, one from Texas, and the Mid

There are many old Alaskans re

I stieud almost all of my (line on

tliere is anything that wilt give a man
a seus- of his own Insignltlcanee'lt Is
to look as far as tlie eye cau rea-li

is any poetry In a man. it losses ou the
