A LETTER FROM C. M. TUCKER
An Interesting but Uneventful Trip to the
On Board S. S. Humboldt, \
Wednesday, Apr. 23, '98. (
Dear Brother:— left Victoria
at 12 o'clock Monday night and the
water has been smooth. except last
night, when it rolled considerably, not
enough to make me sick though, as I
have a good birth about amidship, on
main deck. I have two room-mates.
There are about 250 passengers aboard
and the second-class is pretty tough.
Yesterday morning they complained
and consequently have more to eat to
day. The first-class accommodations
are good. I come at third table, seat
17, and we get beef or any kind of fresh
meat, pie, cake, etc.; and we have good
beds, too. "Swiftwater BUI" and a
party of ladies (?) and gentlemen (?)
are on board and > have a grand time
among themselves. It is rather cold
on deck; there is snow on the moun
tains. * V .v
April 14—Weather fine but colder.
We stopped at May island last night,
and anchored today a few hours at the
entrance of Wrangel narrows, waiting
for the tide. We expect to reach Skag
way tomorrow. We passed the steamer
Utopia today with a good load of pas
sengers, and they all called out, "Go
back!" We also parsed two op three
others, and they all said the same. I
guess outfits will be J. cheap enough
iere. Everybody is writing, or play
sng cards and drinking beer. There
are 30 or 40 dogs on board. *;
April 15—Arrived at Skagway today
at 10 a. m. Heard from Hill before I
left the boat. He is uneasay about me.
He has had a good time, I guess. Also
met Farnham. He has part of an out
fit here and a part at the lake. : Saw
Fred Knight \ on the street. ?He I has
been sick. Kelly's outfit is at Windy
Arm, on Lake fagash. I saw a party
at the hotel who saidSPbelps saw Gill
go aboard the 5 Clara Nevada. 1 Got the
letter you wrote me in August. ? Lati
mergot it a month or so ago. He has
been very sick, but lis up now. It is
raining and very muddy, but there is
plenty of snow on I the mountain trail.
Every other building !is • a saloon, and
between them are \ other ' saloons, iin
many places. The town is lighted by
electricity, and water works are being
put in. There are a number of wrecks
in the harbor. I am going out to Hill's
(my j partner's) f cabin tomorrow and
will I probably return' in a few days,
when I will write again. Write me
here. I will \ get \ the mail for several
weeks yet, perhaps. lam : afraid the
