Mmta I Bran,
Theie is in Philadelphia a clothing house which has no double in all the
world. The world is full of clothing houses ; and it is a geed deal te say that
one is unlike all the rest.
First, in its dealing ; and it is surprising that one house should differ
much from another. Selling clothing is se simple a matter, that it is likely,
one would suppose, te be done in very much the same way in Philadelphia,
New Yerk and Londen. But Philadelphia is ahead ; and, curiously enough,
one house in Philadelphia is ahead of all the rest.
Te be ahead in dealing is te deal en a higher pkuie, in a meie liberal
way, te give the buyer mere well founded confidence without less of the mer
chant's safety. This Philadelphia clothing house says te a straugcr : " We
want te deal with exact justice. Wc want what belongs te us, viz., a fair
profit ; and wc want you te have what belongs te you, viz., a liberal money's
worth. Our way te arrive at this result is te mark a price en everything we
sell, which price is absolute ; and te let you buy what you like, go away and
think the .bargain ever, and come and trade back, if you want te. Wc find by
experience that this liberality is harmless te us. Of course, you like it. And
it makes quick and ready dealing. Wc don't want you te bring back what
you buy it would cost us money every time ; but we would rather you would
bring back than keep, what you don't like. Se, wc try te sec that you get
at first what you will like the better the mere you knew of it. This is really
flic whole philosophy of our dealings." Is it any wonder that no ether clothing
house in this city, or New Yerk, or Louden, deals in the same way ?
Second, in its goods the amount and variety of them. There are ether
houses where excellent clothing is kept, and a great deal of ib; but there is
none, anywhere, that keeps se much. The dealing rolated above has wen the
largest trade the world has yet seen. Te supply such a trade great quantity
and variety of clothing arc required ; and these in turn increase .the trade, be
cause everybody likes te cheese out of many things, rather than out of few.
This is the country of ready-made clothing. Great Britain makes the
most of any European country ; bat there is net in all Londen any clothing
business a quarter as large as that of Oak Hall. New Yerk lias several large
clothing businesses ; but no one nearly equal te that of Oak Hall ; Bosten
Loek back twenty years ! Have we done you geed service, or net? But
that is net what wc had in mind ; we were thinking of the clothes you arc go
ing te buy te-day. Shall wc sell them '.'

FRIDAY EVENING, NOV. 19, 1880.
A RACE OP NORTHMEN.
Tlii: DWELLEKS ON THE ICE LANDS
Concluded from yesterday.
The religious belief of the limit is of
it crude, indefinite nature, te the effect
that there is a power which rewards ijoed
Inuits and punishes bad ones after death
by sending them te different places. In
some places they told us that the. geed
went te a place above, while in ethers it
was thought that the place was below.
They have only a eeufused idea of it and
seemed te avoid fepcakiug of it any mere
than was necessary. Their belief evident
ly teaches nothing of truthfulness, hon
esty or ether viitue, or that ''cleanliness
is next te godliness."
The traditions of this people are differ
ent at nearly every settlement. This is
easily accounted for by the fact that they
are but seldom narrated, and therefore no
one becomes sumcicntiy laminar with
them te repeat them cenecLly. It seem s
te be considered a duty te lepeat them te
the children when old enough te under
stand them, and thus they are 'handed
down from one generation te another. It
is easily seen hew imperfect memory,Jand
the tendency te ex r jerate which this pso pse
plc possess in con-.n ! with all aborigines,
eventually work i a change in the tra
ditions efthcia: 'hat the originals are
A 1'eln ."licilicine Man."
An instane-. : this tendency te enlarge
and deal in the marvelous is related of a
"shaman" or "medicine man " from one
of the tribes en the Veukun. who came
with the traders te St.Mich&cl's one season
and saw the Alaska commercial company's
steamer St. Paul lying at anchor. He
was much astonished, and tried te meas
ure her length ami breadth with his pad
dle, but gave it up. On his return home
uc endeavored te give an idea et me size
of the vessel by a comparison with dis
tances ever the ground, increasing a little
each time, until he made the steamer's
length half a mile and her height several
hundred feet. Our native interpreter gave
the Inuits assembled at Cape IJIossem an
account of our seizure of the Lee for sel
ling whisky. The 'story went from one
settlement te another until it reached St.
Michael's long before our return, but se
exaggerated and overdrawn as te be quite
unrecognizable, as it accused us of sinking
vessels and sheeting down their crews as
they attempted te escape ever the ice.
The custom of exacting bleed for bleed
prevails among them. It does net, how
ever, seem te be necessary that te observe
this custom and avenge the death of a
relative an limit should nin any risk te
his own life. There is no haste, and he
generally waits uiitU he can accomplish his
vengeance without clanger te himself. This
vengeance, though often long delayed, is
almost certain te come at last, instances
arc related of a young limit, after arriving
at the age of manhood, avenging the mur
der of a parent or brother committed dur
ing his infancy. All things being consider
ed, however, murders and crimes of all
kinds are exceedingly rare among the
They are geed-natured and kiuil-hcart-cd
when net under the influence ofliquer,
and could, in my opinion, be mere easily
civilized than any ether Indians in
America. At many places visited by us,
en being informed of the object of our
visit, they said they would be glad te have
the whisky trade stepped, freely acknowl
edging their inability te resist the tempta
tion te buy and drink it if put in their way.
The natives at Point Harrow several years
age bought from a trader a large quantity
of liquor. The result was that tiiey ne
glected te hunt seal for winter use, and
many starved te death. Since then they
have requested the traders and these of
the whalers who have been in the habit of
carrying liquor te trade net te bring any
mere. I am informed, moreover, that
many of them even refuse ie buy when it
is effeied te them. Instances of this kind,
however, are rare, and it is only tee prob
able that their geed resolutions will net
long remain proof against temptation it it
be constantly thrown in their path.
WhisKy and Prohibition.
In this connection I would agaiu niet
respectfully urge upon the government the
necessity of some prompt measures te pre
vent this great wrong. The manner in
which the whisky trade is carried en is
well known. Vessels clear from San Fran Fran
eo with alcohol for the Siberian coast, giv
ing bends net te dispose of it en the Amer
ican side, and en their return produce a
certificate signed by some of the ship's
company, but purporting te be from some
person at Plover Bay or 81. Lawrence, in
Siberia, te the effect that the alcohol was
landed at one of these places. In all prob
ability they have net been within one
hundred miles of cither place. Even ad
mitting that the liquor wai landed as they
claim, the result is the same ; it is drunk
by the Tchuktchis or carried by them te
the Ameiican side and sold. Other ves
sels clear from San Francisce with large,
quantities of bay rum. Flerida water, &c,
which are sold te natives te drink.
Still another class, which includes many
whalers, take in a supply of alcohol at the
Sandwich lslauds. in order te break up
this illicit traffic I respectfully offer the
following recommendations : First, that
the collector of customs at San Francisce
be instructed te refuse a clearance te any
vessel having en beard bay rum, Flerida
water or any ether alcoholic preparations,
as all such arc intended te be sold te the
natives for drink ; also te all vessels hav
ing en beard alcohol for the Siberian coast
as such commcrce is in violation of the
laws of a friendly power. A large portion
of this whisky, as before stated, linds its
way te the natives of Alaska, cither
through fraudulent action en the part of
the traders or by native barter.
It is also respectfully recommended that
all whalers clearing from San Francisce be
notified that hereafter the laws relating te
the introduction of firearms and liquor
into Alaska will be rigidly enforced. A
rovenue cutter should be detailed each
year te cruise in the Arctic ocean until the
illicit trade is entirely broken up. The
vessel should leave San Francisce early
enough te reach St. Lawrence Island iu ad
vance of whalers and traders, and should
fellow them irPe the Arctic, keeping a
close watch en their actions and searching
them thoroughly whenever found within
the jurisdiction of the United States.
With the co-operation of the Russian gov
ernment this contraband trade might be
wholly destroyed. Active measures en
the part of Russia would net be necessary.
The concession te the United States of the
right te search suspected vessels for con
traband goods en the Siberian coast would
be sufficient. I would respectfully rec
ommend that some action be taken by our
government with a view te obtaining this
A glance at the chart will show the im
possibility of one cutter protecting the en
tire coast of Alaska. The Arctic coast
line between Cape Prince of "Wales and
Point Barrow is some TOO miles in extent.
This is fully as much as one vessel can at
A Shotgun Policy.
In regard te the breech-leading arms
possessed by many of the natives ( some
purchased prier te the enactment of the
law prohibiting their sale te the Indians,
and ethers purchased since this enactment),
I would state that I did net feel justified
iu depriving the natives of one of their
principal means of subsistence, although
the possession of such arms is a violation
of law. In case it should be deemed ad
visable te seize these arms, I would res
pectfully recommend that the natives be
furnished with deuble-barreled shotguns
and ammunition. The exchange can eas
ily be made by the commanding officer of
the cutter. In my opinion the change
would be beuelicial, as they have difficulty
jn procuring ammunition for their breech
loaders and pay most exorbitant prices
ler tnein. It is also respecttully recom
mended that some action be taken te bring
te justice the murderers of the trader Kajr Kajr
uakeff and Mrs. Beau, en the Youken and
Tanuaneh livers. These are be
lieved te have been deliberate
murders and the alleged perpe
trators arc still at large. They should be
punished net only en the plea of justice,
but te insure the safety of the lives and
property of ether traders. The natives iu
that section arc a bad let, and only the
fear of punishment will restrain them
from committing crimes against the whites.
The commanding officer of the revenue
cutter en the Alaska station next year
might be authorized te detail an officer
and ten men, with a Gatliug gun, from
the vessel te make the arrests Fer this
purpose additional men should be al
lowed. The officers and men could make
the passage up the river en the steamer
belonging te the Alaska commercial com
pany, or that of the Western fur and trad
ing company, taking one et the cutter's
beats iu tow. The return passage could
be made iu a few days iu the beat. I am
convinced that such a course would have a
most salutary effect, and prevent much
serious trouble in future.
Hints for Whalers.
Whales are found in parts of the ocean.
They enter as seen as the ice breaks up,
and remain until compelled te leave by the
sea closing up again. The natives affirm
that they are most numerous after the de
parture of the whaling licet in the fall.
As stated elsewhere, they are most fre
quently found iu the vicinity of ice. A
variety of bahena mysliceta, called by the
whalers "bowhead," is the most com
mon. The California gray wnalc and
finback whale are much mere rare ;
they are in fact seen only occasionally in
the Arctic. The white whale, although
confined te no particular part of the Arctic,
is most numerous in the vicinity of the
fresh water rivers which empty into
Ketzcbuc Sound. The grampus, like the
California gray whale and finback whale,
is net found in numbers iu the Arctic.
The walrus, like the whale, is found
generally iu the vicinity of ice. It enters
this ocean in spring, as seen as the straits
open, and remains until driven out by the
iee, when they repair te the Uchring Sea.
Their young are brought forth en the ice
during Ihe spring months. Walrus col
lect en the ice iu l.irge numbers. These
groups are called by the whalers '"pods."
We saw hundreds of these animals drift
ing through the straits en the ice flees
during the month June. They are found
in the greatest numbers along the western
ice pack near the Asiatic shcre early iu the
season. Later they arc found along the
northern pack between Herald Sheal and
Point Barrow. They seldom haul out en
the main pack, but select detached Hees,
the better te observe the approach of their
natural enemy, the polar bear.
Seals arc met with in all parts of the
Arctic. The common hair seal (I'heea
vitulina) and the large hair seal are the
most numerous. The latter I believe te be
the large seal of Greenland (Ptecu Green
landica), both from appearance and from
the similarity of the native names, that in
Greenland being, Ouukc and that in Alaska
U-juke. The leopard seal is net se common,
still it is met with in ail parts of the ocean.
While cruising te the westward of Herald
Sheal wc saw two seals of a different va
riety from ethers mentioned. They were
smaller thau the small hair seal, with a
slender body and pointed head ; the color
was dark. Our attempt te secure them

At Cape Espenbcrg numbers of large
cider ducks wcre seen, also a few sprigtail
ducks, .old sqnaws, plover and two vari
eties of snipe. Cape Thompson and Cape
Lisburnc arc breeding places lermurr,
puffin aud gulls. At every visit te these
localities the face of the cliffs and the air
seemed alive with birds. At Wainwright

of large white owls and many large gulls,

robber birds and rivcns. The last named
were seen all along the coast. The smaller
birds aud insects, although seen at all
points en the coast, were most plentiful in
Ketzcbuc bound. In the vicinity et Her
ald Island we saw many murr, a few large
white gulls, robber birds aud pigeon guille
mots. The salmon is the only variety of fish in
the Arctic that is of any value. Although
smaller thau the salmon caught farther
south, they are of fine flavor. They are
quite plentiful, and the coast natives euro
large quantities by smoking and drying for
A Strange l'ecuilnrlty of tlie Ice.
Before closing my report a few words in
regard te the ice iu general may net be
out of place. In that part of the Arctic
visited by the Cerwin the ice is quite
different from the ice iu the vicinity of
Greenland. The immense icebergs raise
their frozen peats hundreds of feet in the
air. The highest ice seen by us during the
season would net exceed 50 feet in height.
The average height of the main pack is
from 10 te Ie feet, with hammocks that
rise te 20 or 30 feet. Occasionally, how
ever, fields are met with which rise 40 or
even 50 feet above the water. The specific
gravity of sea ice is 91 ; hence only about
a tenth is visible above the surface of the
water. A field of 20 feet in height may
have a dSpth of nearly 200 feet. This
enormous thickness is caused by ene layer
of ice being forced upon another by the
action of wind and current. The greatest
thickness it attains by freezing is about
eighteen feet. At that depth ice ceases te
be a conductor of temperature. The
maximum depth reached in a single win
ter is, according te Parry, Wrangell, and
ether Arctic travelers, about nine and one
half feet. The ice of the Arctic Ocean is
never at rest. Even in the coldest winters
it is liable te displacement and pressure
by the currents of air and water. The
expansion and contraction due te changes
in temperature also assist in this disturb
ance. Owing te these combined causes
the surface of the ice always presents a
rough, uneven appearance. Along the edge
of the pack, during the summer is generally
found a belt of drift ice varying in width
according te the direction of the wind.
When thewind blows off the pack drift ice is
frequently found fifteen or twenty miles
from the main body. At times the pack
itself opens iu leads by which it may be
penetrated for several miles. Iu ventur
ing within the limits of the pack,however,
a sharp watclwnust be kept en the move
ments of the ice and a retreat made at the
first indication of its closing.
A vessel beset in the pack is as helpless
as if she were as far inland, while there is
imminent danger of being crushed at any
moment. When the wind blows en the
pack the drift ice becomes as close as the
pack itself. In addition te the constant
twistiagj turning, breaking and piling up
of the ice by the causes mentioned the
whole body has a northeasterly set, mov
ing very slowly, but none the less surely.
l'crlls of the Ice Pack.
An idea of the dangers of ice naviga
tion may be formed from the fact that
since 1871 fifty-four out of the small llect
of vessels engaged in whaling have been
lest iu this part of the Arctic. Of this
number thirty-three have been beset in
the pack and drifted te the northeast, car
rying with'them sixty men, who remained
by their ships in the vain hope of saving
them, and of whom nothing has ever been
hcaid or seen.
