COMING TOT BEAVER CITY MONDAY, OCT. 20th
The World's Famous
A Trip to Alaska and the Pa
(Continued from last wcok)
"Upon our arrival at Cordova we
found an enthusiastic crowd at the
wharf to greet us and quite a number
of the party found friends from the
States who were located at that place
and enjoying the luxuries of Alaska.
In fact, at ovory port at which we
stopped Borne of the party found friends
and acquaintances or former residents
of the section from which they came.
At the most remote point we visited
wo found people from the States who
wore there secKing fortune and many
of them had found it and had no in
tention of returning to the States to
o.ijoy it but rather laughed us to
scorn when somo one volunteered the
information that they could live much
more luxuriously if "thoy would return
"homo" now that they had secured
their wealth. Tiioro seems to bu that
something about this wonderful coun
try that lures and charms its visitors
and those of our fellow citizens who.m
we found located there told us that in
stead of our wondering why thoy did
not return to the States now that their
fortunes were made in Alaska, that we
upon our return to our homes would
(lnd.ourselvs wondering how we could
get-- back"to' Alaska. Well, I cannot
ngreo with them altogether in this
particular but, I must say, I novir felt
the air more invigorating, and there
are certain charms about this far
northn est country that will over re
main in my memory as a most pleas
ant recollection and I can say to one
and all, if the opportunity ever prc
sents itse'f for you to pay Alaska a
visit, do so by all means. A visit to
no other section, unless it be the North
Pole itself, could afford more varied
and beautiful scenery, u more delight
ful climate and more thrilling exper
iences that such a visit as the one I am
describing to you from week to week
Soon after our arrival at Cordova
and w lie the reception committee
were extending tint glad hand of wel
come to the pencil pushers, a shout of
joy filled the air as the locomotive of
the Copper River Railroad Company,
rounded the curve and hove in sight.
A real railroat train! Think of it!
And that n the laud of snow and ice
and whero the only trains we wero ex
pecting to see were dog trains as they
Bcampered away over the snow with
their sledges. Tho train was composed
of two passenger, conches, several ca
booses and 60ino flat cars, all brand
new and decked in gala attire fur this
wondurful trip up the Copper river.
Tho road had just been completed fifty
miles and ticket No. 1 sold that day.
This was tiin first trip over tho route.
Tho editorial party wero tho guosts of
tho railroad company. After all wero
comfortably located tho engineer
opened the throttle aud we again found
ourselves riding ou tho "Kiycred
Kccrs" much to our delight after
many days being bo tudely tossed
about on the ocean wave.
This day was to be one of many de
lights. Wo had barely started upon
our journey until a halt was madb and
sovcral buckets of delicious strawber
ries wero purchased from the Indians.
Tho berries wore Bimply par excellence
and could not bo beaten for flavor by
any on tho eastern markets. TJio en
tire trip to the end of the ljno was ono
of wonder and grandeur. The
aceijory was indescribable and start
lingly grand. The road passos through
deop canyons, between aud around
great glueiora, cascades and water
falls, and up tho Copper River valley,
u stream that is to Aluska what Ni
agra Ik to tho United States. The
rapids of tho river wero beautiful and
a wo crept along'tho very brink of the
river every moment knowing that a
single slip would send us dashing into
tho angry water, tho Boeno was awe
inspiring. On one hand tho rugged
mountain rose hundreds, yea thous
ands, of feet Into the air and on the
other tho mad dusliiiig utream went
TRAINED ANIMAL SHOWS
leaping and bounding down its swift
courso breaking into foam against tho
very rails almost of tho track upon
which wo were gliding for tho roadbed
was blasted out of tho rock of tho very
mountain side and thero was just
b'irely room for our train to pass.
We stopped at Camp No. 49 for din
ner and to view the wonderful l.hies
and Child's glaciers. I hardly know
which to dcjcribo first the glaciers or
the dinner, for botli wero truly revela
tions. When it was announced that
luncheon would bo served at the gla
ciers our thoughts instantly turned to
those of sandwiches and coHee and we
wore wholly unprepared for tho grand
spread that awaited us. Wo knew
nothing about tho French chof that
Contractor Honey had employed to
cook for his men all the time and we
thought (f course lunch was to be pre
pared nt Cordova and taken out on the
train with ub. Such was not tho case,
however, and wo wero sot down to as
grand a feast as ever graced any table.
To give you somo idea of its elaborate
ness I will mention a part of tho menu :
Fresh fruits, fish, oyster coquets,
mushrooms, celery, corn on the cob,
.roast and cold meats of various kinds,
olives, and all kinds of pickles nnd
relishes, pie, cake, sherbet and ice
cream, and'champatgiio ff you wanted'
it (somo wanted it). Upon inquiry we
found that Contractor Ilency paid his
chef $1500 a year and it was not an un
common occurrence for tho railroad
men to have such spreads. Wonder if
tho contractor on the Ueaver Valley &
Northwestern will feed his men as
Some time was spun! m viewing the
wonderful glaciers aud we are at a
loss to find words to adequately de
scribe the beauties of tho samo. At
thjK" point wo got our best view of the
glaciers. Wo were only about a half
mile distant from them and it looked
much less than tlmt.In fact.it seemed
only a stone's throw"aeross the stream
that lapped their icy walls at one sido
and flowed at o"ur feet at the other but
upon attempting to covor tho distance
even tho swiftest atone fell far short ol
the mark and displayed tho t'eceitful
ness of distances in Alaska. Wo were
close enough however, to hear the con
stant crash and crack of tho ice as it
broke loose andell down the jagged
cliffs of ico and truck tho water at
the baso with a report liko that of a
cannon. As near as wo can describe
tho scene tho constant roar and hiss
and bang of tho falling ice sounded
vory much liko an old-fashioned Fourth
of July celebration when all the guns,
anvils aud cannons wero helping the
eagle soroam in true American stylo.
Those peoplo at Camp 40 havo a con
tinuous Fourth of July celebration all
the time but thoy tell us they enjoy it
and never tiro of watching tho mon
ster glacier as it constantly tumbles
and crashes into the water and ia car
ried away in mammoth icebergs but
novur grows any less.
There is somothing awsomc in theso
manifestations nf the mighty forces of
nature. The far-booming roar as of
heavy artillery, tho epiros as of glacial
castles, tho yawning chasms of tho
orevaso3, and tho solid wali of ico ex
tending for many miles and from three
to four hundred feet high, cannot but
excite even tho dullest to flights of
A.'tor dinner wo wore taken on out to
tho end or tho Hue which is known aB
Camp 51. Arriving at the Coppor
rivor, we found the ferry boat waiting
to carry us across, for tho biidge across
that stream has not yet been complet
ed. Another train eolnpose,d of an en
gine and some Hat oars awaited us and
took us to our destination, At the
( end of tho lino o visited Contractor
Iieney's own private headquarters and
1 here we found all tho splendor and at
tractiveness of the finest homo of the
I largo city. His private apartuioirt
were elaborately furnished with all
the comforts arthe command of money
and it was hard for one to realize that
amid all this splendor wc were stand-
An Exhibition of
-Trained Dogs, Ponies
Monkeys and Goats.
High Wire Walk
ers and Olowns.
Praised by the
At Night Only
ing on the soil of far-off Alaska. Tho
costliestjeather furniture was there
and maguificout bear ekins covered tho
floor. Contractor Heney made him
self vory ngreeablooand took a great
deal of pleasure in extending every
courtesy to his visitors all of which
was most heartily received.
While on this trip wo saw a real live
Alaska boar but it was chained ex
cept for which fact, I presume some of
our brave editors would bo running
yet. Tho cub, for such it was, had
boon captured by the railroad men and
was kept as a pet in tho camp. It per
formed for us and the ladies pro
nounced it "cute."
Uponbur return to tho ferry we
wero surprised to find a huge iceberg
had blocked our landing nnd it was
necessary for tho ferry boat to ptll up
along side the piers for uh to go aboard
Tho. obstruction was removed how
ever, being dynamited which in itsell
was a pretty Bight ond so far as we
were concerned we were glad tho ice
berg had lodged in then pproach.
Returning to Cordova in tho evening
a formal reception was tendered the
visitors at the Elks hall where a splen
did timo was enjoyod by all. Refresh
ments werq served and two charmiaji
ladies presided at tho purcly-Alasknu
punch -bowl whore a Inost delieloufc
sparkling beverage was served. This
punch bowl was mado from a huge
piece of the iceberg which I have just
told that blocked our way at the ferry
and for beauty and uniqueness it could
not havo been excelled by the rarest
cut glass aud pure silver. Hut, pleas
ant as was our Btay at Cordova, no
found It 'necessary to bid our friends
goodbye and with their hearty God
speed wo resumed our journey to the
At Valdez wo enjoyed nnotlier pleas
ant stop and wo found the same hos
pitality. In fact, genuine hospitality
and good fellowship scorns to pervade
tho very atmosphere of Alaska. I am
not quite sure but even membors of
our -own party imbibed somo of the
real thing themselves aud wo found
ourselves more charitable and hospit
able after being associated with these
good people- who know nothing else
but kindness aud generosity itself
The usual banquet and reception was
indulged hero and it was with regret
that we heard the word from our Cap
tain Unit tho Norh. western's sailing
hour had arrived aud wu must all
hasten aboard. At Valdez I mot Mr.
W. E. Beaks and wifo and little boh,
who were formerly of Oklahoma having
resided at El Rbno, 1 enjoyed the
hospitality of their homo during my
short stay.iti Valdo. and found thorn
fully up to tho standard of Alaskan

"Thank you," said Charles vory
solemnly, (,I will ; I'll stay today."
