On to Klondike.
Mrs. L. Veit leeelved a letter ft out
her brother, Geoige F. Campbell, who,
when he wiote, was in Skaguay. but Is
supposed to lw now on his way to Klon
dike. It is the intention of Mr. Camp
bell to buy horses anil pack across the
mountains after his outtlt had beeu
taken oer the pass. The packing is
hard w oik, but tho hard work of the
trip is just begun. A man should have
at least $3,000 to make the trip. That
is, his outfit and provisions will cost
ono-thltd the amount and another third
will be spent in getting to the gold
fields, the other third will bo needed
after nrrhal in Klondike. The Cana
dian authorities, will not allow a man to
cross the lino without 1,09J pounds of
grub, on which thoj exact a duty of 20
cents ier pound. Alaska is certainly
no place for a poor man, and there are
hundreds of men penniless in Skaguay.
