A LETTER ABOUT KLONDIKE.
A Telephone 'Line From Haines
Mission to Dawson Oity.
Our Correspondent, Mr. Summons,
Says Those Who Go Into the
Klondike Before February
Tacoma, Wash., Nov. 14, '97.
And now tho transportation poople
are saying 200,000 people will go to
the now Alaska gold diggings next
spilng. That would moau 60,000 por
month for Fobiunry, March, April and
Mat'. Therefore about 200 steamers
carrying 250 pooplo each would bo re
quired, provided each nindo a round
trip monthly. Already thoro ate fully
tifty steamers in the service and dining
tho past week fifteen new ones, in
cluding several of tho largest Atlantic
Ocean lluers, have beeu engaged for

carry away "hmrbor, shingles, btlek,

comets of the woild. The leading
newspapers in tho cities of tho Sound
print a weekly table each Monday
morning showing whero these vessels
ate, what (hoy aro loadiug, and for
what poit they aro bouud. Yesterday

steamers at Tacoma ond live at Seattle
loading and discharging caigoes. At
Tacoma, whcio tho tcssels aro thick

But the railroad and steamship men
are uot the only hustlers in sustaining

The electricians are at work and a

Dawson City on the phono" all of
next summer will bo gien up by the
telephone companies. Tho long dis
tance lino will traverso the Daltou
trail, striking tho Yukou at Fort Sol
kit k. For over 200 miles the poles
for this line will have to bo set in
gror.ud that never thaws. Some peo
ple bavo curious ideas about how the
holes should bo dug. Some experi
enced contractors contend that tho
holo for each polo will have to bo
burned down" tho samo as the Klon
diko miner burns tho frozen earth to
reach bed-rock by burainir wood on
top of the frozen ground, thus .thaw
ing four to six inches of earth by
each fitc. Supeiintendent Sands
states, however, that a number ot fltio
steel ei ow bars will bo used and a small
portablo forgo will be taken along
with tho construction gang to sharpen
tho bars. Thoholes wlllhavetobesunk
botween three and four feot, and thede-
mands for positions on tho construction
gang ate very numerous, Inasmuch as
tlio.?o who thus seek employment hope
to uso tho telephone pole hole for
prospecting purposes. Each holo will,
in a measure, bo a prospect holo. and

Jelegraph Creek, at tho head of
navigation on the Stickeen trail route,
is a constant reminder of the attempt
to roach Europe via a telegraph line
backed by American capital. Those
who aro thinking about the Klondike
and examining the maps of that coun
try have, no doubt, noted that there is
a place on the mnp named Telegraph
Creek. There is nothing up there to
Indicate that the place should bo so
named, but by delving into tho history
of telegraphy in this country tho fact
Is brought out that when Cyrus Field
was being called a lunatic for boom
ing the Atlautio cabfo project, arrange
ments wero made .o build an overland
lino via Alaska to Sibeiia and Europe
Gangs of man had tho work well
uuder way when tho Atlantic cablo
proved a success and Cyrus Field was
heralded a genius. Ono of tho points
visited by the construction gangs was
a point on thdSllkeon river now known
as Telojrraph Creek.
Somo of tho miners who aro going
luto tho Klondiko country in advance
of tho rush aro to go by way of tho
Stickeen river and Telegraph Creek.
Those who go before February 1 will
meet with disappointment. I havo
eat of ul ly investigated nil of tho routes,
and while it Is truo that tha Stickeen
liver frcccs over above a point whoro
tho tido does not dislodgo tho ico, it is
also true that it is impossible to make
headway until tho heavy fall of snow
Is melted sufficiently dining the day
.clause a "crust" to form at night.
On' tills crust good headway can be
made. It is also truo that whllo, as a
rulo, only from 18 inches to three feot
of snow falls in tho Interior of Alaska
dining tho winter, a six to eight foot
fall is frequeutlyyoxpotlcuced near tho
About 200 mincis who believed they

BAD D0LLABS DESTROYED.
Women Experts Who Can Detect the
"Every working day in tho year Un
cle Sam destroys a million dollars; de
liberately tears up and grinds to pulp
one million dollars1 worth of paper
money genuine bank notes and green
backs," writes Clifford Howard in the
Ladies' Homo Journal. "A million
dollars in one, two, five, ten, twenty
fifty, ono hundred, and ouo thousand
dollar notes, are .daily punched full of
holes, cut into halves and thrown into
a machine that rapidly reduces them
to a mass of mushy substance. When
ever a piece of paper money becomes
soiled, or torn it may bo presented to
the United States treasury and re
deemed. Sooner or later every note
that circulates among the people be
comes unfit for further service, for it
is bound to become dirty or mutilated
by constant handling, and tho United
States government stands ready to
give tho holdor of such a note a new
note in exchango for it; or, in other
words, tho government will redeem it.
Tho majnilty of the clerks employed
in this important department of the
government aro women, many of
whom ate the most expert money
counters aud counterfeit detectors in
the wot Id. In fact, only experts can
properly perform tho work that is re
quired; for uot only must the soiled
and mutulatcd money bo accurately
aud tapjdly counted but all counter
felt notes must bo detected and thrown
out. When wo consider that some
countctfeits can so cleveily imitate
genuine money that their spurious
notes will circulato through the
coutitry without detection, and are
uot discovered until they are finally
tuincd-lnto the treasury, somo Idea of
tho piolicicucy of those experts can bo
gained, especially when we bear in
mind that these notes are oftcu so
worn" thauUnT-niipiint on them 'can
scarcely bo deciphered. It uot Infre
quently happens that those bad notes
are detected simply by the feel of
them, which in somo cases is really
tho only way of discovering the fraud;
for while a counterfeiter may occa
sionally succeed in so perfectly imitat
ing the design of a note as to mislead
even an expert, it is next to impossible
for him to counterfeit the paper used
by the government."
The Ananias Club.
It was at ono of tho regular weekly
meetings of tho Ananias club, and
there was a candidate for admission.
According to tho invariable custom
of tho club tho officers told stories and
at their conclusion the initiate was re
quired to make an effort. Immediate
ly thereafter the balloting took place.
If tho members were satisfied that his
story showed him to bo a worthy com
panion they elected him one of their
number; but if thoy wore dissatisli ed
with it he was blackballed without
On this occasion the grand exalted
chief liar, tho highest officer of the
club, said, "I was fishing in Buckskin
crook a few weeks ago, and for nearly
two hours I had no luck at all. I was
beginning to think I bad better return

and I hooked what at first I thought
was an eel. As I hauled the creature
in howovor, I found that It was a big
watcrsnake. The reptile was ten feet
long aud swollen iu the middlo to
enormous dimensions. I promptly
killed him, and found inside no fewer
than two hundred and fifty-three trout
which I emptied into a little pool.

"Is that a fish-story or a snake
story?" asked the vice-grand exalted,
liar, who then proceeded to say, "U.y
story is a very short one. I borrowed
an umbrella of Jones yesterday, when
it was raining hard, but I returned it
to bim this morning before he was up."
"Well, it seems to be my turn,"
said the grand mendacious scribe.
"As most of you know, I was married
something like six mouths ago. When
my wife and I went to housekeeping
we had the fortune to obtain an ex
cellent cook; and, gentlemen, al
though we live fifteen miles in tbp

It is now your turn," said the

up and began, r

wild shouts from the members. "That's '

Apropos of the difficulty even theiij
fair owners experience iu locating
ladies' pockets, an English paper tells;
a story of a lady who, arrayed in By
new frock, took a hansom the othetj
day, and, ou alighting, hunted Vainly,
for the entrance to a pocknt whero
she had confidingly placed her purse. J
Tho quest was so unduly prolonged;
that at last her charioteer, who was
nat a man of refinement, remarked
from bis pprch: "Now, then marm,;
when you've qulto done a-scratchia' of j
your back will you pay me my fare?"
A Camel's Vengeance.
Camels havo a great share of Intel-?
ligence, and tho Arabs assert that they'
are so extremely sensible of injustice"
aud ill-treatment that, when this is
carried too far, the mfiicter will not
find it easy to escape their vengeance,
and that thoy will retain the remom-'
branco of an injury till an opportunity
offers for gratifying their revenge.
Eager, however, to express their re-
soutment, they no longer retain any
rancor when once they are satisfied;
and it is even sufficient for them to
believe that they satisfied their vea- '
geanco. Accordingly when an Arab
has excited the rago of a camel, he r
throws down his garments tn some''
place near which the animal is to pass
and disposes them in such a manner
that they appear to cover a maa
sleeping under them. The aaiBaal -recognizes
the clothes, seizes them' la J
his teeth, shakes them in violence-"
and tramples on them in a rage'"
Whcu his anger Is appeased he leaves
them, and then the owner ot tke u&
monts may make hi, appearaaee, aad
without any fear may loadaadVdde
him as ho pleases. ,t
