,"Ir the summer of 1888,' Kershon
said, (I was-one of a party of sil who"
left here to go North prospecting. We,
took tlhesteamer to Juneau, where.-we

with, but will say that. after several
weeks of awful toll we reached a fork. B
"I was for going up this fork -and
prospecting, but the other five were
against it, but as I was determined to t
go I left she party, engaged an Indian t
canoe with two bucks, and started, off a
up this unknown fork.. -We had a ter- a
rible time. The stream narrowed In b
between high cliffs and bshotwith di.y
swiftness down the gulcbes, making It
necessary to tow the canoe, by means
of a line from the banks, two doing t
this while the third man rested,. Pro.
gress was necesearily slow, 'and for
many days we toiled before the first
range of cliffs and mountains was
passed. . Once a bundred.foot water
fall barred us, and it took three days
to get around it;
",After this it was a bit easier. The
river broadened out-and the country
was more level. The banks were well
wooded, and game was. plentiful. We
kept on like this, always going' north.
After six weeks a range of mmuntains
was sighted. I believed this to be the
head of the river, and pressed on to
reach it before the cold weather settn.
Snow was now failing very often, and
it was evident that the summer fas
nearly done; At length We reaceed
the wild country again, and the stream
which had been subdividing itself Into d
lesser ones, soon became too difficult to e
navigate. This was almost at the foot U
of the range of mountains spoken of.
Here I determined to camp for the I
winter, and good quarters were found. C

"Before long the emid came and, at I
times, it was Impossible to stir from a

when the terrible winds blew. At
other times it was fairly comfortable,
although the lack of sun made it
gloomy enough. Toward the end of
winter it began to get lighter, and the I
gales were I frequent.
SEEINt IIE SILENT CITY.
"One day I determined to try and
scale one of the mountains near us, as
I got so tired and weary in being
penned up in such a confined place.
This idea I put before the Indians.
One of them said he would go with
me; the other would not risk it, so was
left in camp. A storm shortly arose,
blowing heavily for three days, but as
soon as the weather had settled, my
self and the Iodian started off on our

pretty steep rise, we reached a plateau
between the foothills and high range.
Here the stream ended, and weostarted
to climb oneof the big bills. After a

near the summit. A wonderful view
was had from here, bat the strangest

see it. At first I thought it was some
