A LETTER ABOUT KLONDIKE.
Tacoma, Wash., Nov. 2. 1897.
I dioppoil over to Seattle tills week
to see what- was going on Uioro of In
terest to the peoplo who are going to
Seattle is thirty miles from Tauoma
and a tlo.cn steamboats and trains
oporato daily bntween tlio two cities,
making the run In about an hoar.
The fare for the round trip varies
from SO cents to 1.50. One of tlio
stoamprs is called tho "Flyer," and
has about as much speed as a railrond
Wlion people began to go to Klon
dike lu largo, numbers tho passenger
business of the trains and Btcnmboats
botweeu tho two cities has Increased
about twenty-live por cont. Tho
Klomllko rush has also Increased the
postofllee lecelpts, crowded tho hotels
and about doublod the business dono
at tho tolegraph offices in both Taco-ma-and
Tho two cities havo been livalsfor
commercial supromacy since tno
Noithorn Paciflo railroad made Ta
coma its Pacific coast headquarters.
Seattle thought the road shouldvraaku
Its headquartors theie, but the powers
that be, thought different, and it very
naturally causes Seattle peoplo much
annoyance to 'chango cars" in older
to reach their city. Of course In the
matter of Alaska and other steamships,
fielght and pnssengors aro taken on at
both ports. Tacoma is at tlio head of
navigation, while. Seattle, in turn,
claim that the returning steamers
came there first. In returning, as in
leaving, the steamers usually call at
various por,ts beginning anil ending
with Tacoma. Somo steamers, how
evor. come direct to Tacoma from St.
Michaels and Dyea and Skaguay. The
steam schooner North Fork, for In
stance, recently canio here direct
from tho mouth of tho Yukon, as did
also tho steam schooner Lnkme, the
latter arriving Sat ut day evening Inst.
They come lireot because they carry
orders to load lumber hero for other
poits, and time and money is saved In
such cases by coming dliec to the
loading port. Tho same is true of
ships and" steamers that are on the
China and Japan run. One ship, the
Gonericht, ariivcd here Sunday lost
from Yokohama In seventeen days.
This is thu quickest sailing timo evbr
recorded by a sailing vessel. Tho re
markable lime made may bo more
fully comprehended when It is known
that tlio fastest steamers mako the run
in about twelve days, .and some re
quire fourteen or fifteen days.
At Seattle new people am comlug to
town the ilnio ns at Tacoma. Lodg
ing houses aro filling up ami overflow
lug in both cities and now accommo
dations are being arranged for what
is termed 'tho grand rush' in tho
A .large quantity of all tho goods
sold for the Klondike and Alaska
trade lu Jlrlllsli Columbia lips to bo
imported from the state of Washing
ton. Nevertheless, lu endeavoring to
induce Klondikers to enmo to British
Columbia, the statemont has becu
made that American miners must pay
exhorbltaut Canadian duties. Upon
being asked for a statement regarding
this poiut tho Treasury Departntont of
the Uuited Slates has this to say:
- "S far as relates la jjny measuro of
tlio Panadjati (orornpjont whjch bears
heavily upon t!o emigrants, in ques
tion, I Imyo to adyis,o yqj tat this
dupa) injaut is in receipt of a commu
nication fiom ihe Department of State,
enclosing a ' note from tlio British
dial go d'affaires, In which it is btuted
that no special or unusual exactions
have been nindo, nud that the customs
charges arc thoso autlioifzed by tho
oidiuary reveiiuo lans of Canada.
Ho also slates that lustuicMans bovo

pseaml pioceq pqpl(ages, oj p,roylsjgp,s
being used nUa DouVIng utensils in
iigo and 100 pounds of food for tho
Journey, charging oidinary customs
duly1 only on excess""
Because of the fact that British
Columbia mines have bcon developed
by American capital and American
mineis the Canadians are very slow to
offend Undo Sum's sous.
In addition to the one aqieal tram
way over thu mouutaiu .passes which
has already been mentioned, there Is a
prospect of being two more, and
thercfoie, the indications are that tho
frolght rate oyer tho worst part of the
journey to Klondike will be reduced to
tho minimum. At tho same time tho
attompt to set apait tho tenltory for
one hundred miles about St. Mlchaol
as a military leseivation Is calculated
to work against tho Yukon river as
a means of getting into the new dig
gings. Without permission from tho
war department at Washington no oue
can enter the proposed reservation.
Tho ciUes of Tacoma, Scallle and
Poitland liavo protested against tho
reservation nud General Alger has,
notified tho Citizen's Klondike Com
mittee of thu first named city that no
monopoly was given or intonded by
tho establishment of the reservation.
Tho committee, however, wont back
at tho war department with tho de
claration that I n asm tub as tho reser
vation would be 5,000 miles from the
war department, a monopoly would
practically exist, as permission to go
upon the tesei vation would not be had
within tiny icasonablo time. This tart
declaration brought "back private In
formation to the effect that the matter
would be ai ranged to tlio entire satis
faction of tho Tacoma Klondike Com
mittee. This is a big feather in tho
committee's hut, '

& COMPLAINT TO MR. DANA-
m ... .
Stories of His Activity nod Alertness
v In "Everyday Work.
Here aro several typical s torles of
Dina, gathered from vailous nowspa
pfrs: Mr. Dan na had a way peculiar
lyihis own of treating outside interfer
ence with the policy of ills newspaper.
Poisons who presumed on tholrJong
acquaintance with tho distinguished
editor to pi offer advice to him re
garding tho proper journalistic treat
ment of public questions or of special
topics wore usually taught a lesson by
hit Dana that left a lastiugiimpres
sjti on their minds. His manner of
dewliig with such persons was usually
sui.ve, and almost deferential. He
applied his personal castlgatlons on
such occasions with a geiltlo tongue
auM a touch of velvet.
Ono afternoon one of New York's
merchant princes called upon Mr.
Dana at the Sun office and angrily
demanded that tho financial re por tor
forthat paper be dismissed at once,
"'fnke a chair, my dear Mr. , You
ki&wlhat I would gladly do anything
Inluy power to oblige jou,"saldMr.
Djna, in his most cordial tone. "Tell
.what tho trouble is."
Your financial reporter asked me
culay about a ccitalu transaction
I was interested in, and I told
that there was nothing in it.
This morning he printed tlio story,
and made me out a liar."
'Wasn't tho story true?" mildly
insinuated Mr. Dana.
tj'Well, sir, jcs. I suppose so; but I
did not want anything said about it."
""Ah, uni," said Mr. Dana, medita
tively. "That I? very bad, very bad.
Twill see what can be dono. It won't
do. to have a man on a newspaper who
telling tho truth, will it?"
diiefr u i reeled a scarcning
blaailor. The latter saw
Mmetl little, stammered
something about leporlers being too
impel tincnt, and bade Mr. Dana a
hurried good day.
Amos J. Cummiugs bad left the
Tribune but a short time befoie the
transformation of tho Sun was pio-
jeclcd, and Mr. Dana, appreciating
ihe value of such an assistant in mak
ing the sort of paper he contemplated,
ho sent for liim nnd t0'd uml? "W
want yon to become managing editor
ot the Sun." "All right," said Cum
miugs. "But first," continued Mr.
Dana. "I would like to ask you why
you left tho Tribune.'' "I was dis
charged," replied Amos, "for inso
loucu and profanity," and waited, ex
pecting somo expression of surprise or
question as to the facts, but there was
nothing of the sort. Mr. Dana looked
over his glasses and his eyes twinkled
ns ho rejoined: "When aro they going
to discharge Gjreeley?'
A.bo-e al tilings else ho was quick
in mind and movement. He is said to
have been ablo to lead all the morn
ing papers of New York in fifteen
minutes. Thoro was a whirl ot paper
liiso air during tho operation, as he
tut lied leaf after leaf, and ran his eyes
up and down the coltmius,. Io seemed
to seo instinctively whatever each
paper coutainod that was peculiar or
noteworthy, whether it was a stickful
or i columu. A new lun, at the city
desk, of Ho 1(0 noticed that illr.
Dana senr 'r luo Ppela every morn
ing and almost instantly roturneil
theiu,. Wandering at thi, ho asked
tho oil) co boy wh&t tlio chief did with
tho papers. "Well," said the boy, a
typical New York lad, I pllo 'em on
his desk ami he fires 'em ou do floor,
and then I gadder 'em-up again and
bring 'em back to yoii.V-Ldulsvlllo.

The mayor of Greater New York
will have direct and indirect control of j
a patronage greater than any other t
major iu tho woild has at his disposal, t
At tho election- November 2nd, there
were chosen a comptroller, a sheriff
and county cleik for tho county of
Kings, each ot whom will receive
compensation at times greater tbaa "'
that received by the president of the

pensatlons, which aro largely made up '
of fees, are estimated as follows;
Comptroller From $40,000 to $75,
000; depending on amount of fees.
County clerk of Kings About $75,
Shei iff of Kings About $48,000.
Under tho law lately passed, tb
