M OV 11$ Double-Team Freighting in Full Operatiou. TRAIL IN GOOD ORDER Urook?< Trull lo AIIIm ? A Jllle of liradv m t ump IX* Camp Lewis. Jan. 20. EDITOR Daily ALASKAN:? When men walk a distance of from fen to fifteen miles to anj from their work, they run little danger of indigestion. Lacking this exer cise, however, there would be no surcease of appetite, for the very atmosphere of these high altitudes is conducive to an ap palling absorption of grub. At no time is this fact better evidenced than on Sunday, wl en, with all lying in their bunks the live long blessed day, the members of this partv, between the hours of eight and five send three full meals to that illimitable bourne from whence no pork and beans return. But not every Sunday is a day of com plete dulce fa' niente; for about once a month the ordeal of boiling socks and underclothes is undertake.!. As a result of this amateur laundry work the colors of the rainbow garment are equitably inter changed, so that origin il shades become lost in successive nothing. Then the Sib ley stoves require constant feeding and I considerable wallowing in the deep snow j i< required to keep the wood racks full. Green balsam is the only timber afforded I by the woodlands about Middle lake and [ a Sil ly is perhaps the only thing con trived by man that will burn it. So juicy is this medicinal tree that it wont float in water. Once coaxed into a blaze it must be kept burning, with drafts wide open, or the tire will die down and go out. Burn ing balsam affords either a roast or a freeze. Double team freighting to Bennett is J now in full operation. The new trail along | the right-of-way is now being almost ex clusively traveled and is in perfect condi tion. Brack-. tt & Robinson commenced regular trips with their outfit Thursday and the mounted police have posted notices for bid ing travel on the Brooks trail to Atlin, > Now the drooks trail is virtually the Fan ! Tail cut off. But these notices are not in ' tended to convey any such idea. It is I only th^t portion of the Brook's trail be tween the south shore of Middle Lake on to a junction with the present trail to; Atlin. This portion of the old Brooks trail is now generally disused and has been tabooed to facilitate customs inspection. A mile of grade has been uncovered at Camp 12 and !s nearly completed and the ground was broken at Camp 13 yesterday. Down at Bennett, Mr. Ennis, the rail road agent, must brook the opposition of a representative of the Chilkoot Tramway company, who is located at that point. , The Chilkoot people are said to be dig ging the snow away from their cables, long stretches of wl ich have been greatly 1 damaged by the cold weather. So far j only one shipment has crossed the pass , and that was a rive ton outfit destined for Bennett out which has been stacked on Lindem.in, where it will remain indefi- ' nitely. I Balsam City is gradually becoming re- j inhabited with its floating population of sled pulling men and dogs. Every night new tents are pitched in the neighborhood and everv day some cf them are taken down and mushed on. While in places that are quite sheltered from currents, the ice on the lakes is fully three feet thick, it is generally very thin for midwinter, and old timers, who have tarried at this camp, predict an early breakup. If this occurs transportation will be badly hampered during the season that the lakes are impassable for both sledding and navigation. Nearly ail the British Columbian offi- j cials in this district, very much disfavor Ithe enactment of the threatened alien ex clusion law and assert thev do not believe it will ever bec?me a statute. Gold Commissioner Graham says that, if the law passes, It will not be reaction* ary, and that all alien owners of claims will be maintained In all their rights which existed at the time of entry. Alien hold ers of licenses mav also enjoy all the priv- i lieges conferred thereby. Now one of these privileges is set forth in chapter ij<S of, act amended in 1898, section 6, as follows: j "If any person or joint stock company i shall apply for a free miner's certificate at the mining recorder's office during his ab- : sence and shall leave the fee required bv 1 this act with the officer or other person In j charge of the said office, he or she shall be entitled to have such certificate from the I date of such application, and any free ; miner shall at any time be entitled to ob tain a free miner's certificate commencing to run from the expiration of his then ex- 1 isting free miner's certificate, providing he applies for such certificate. He shall ' pr-jdutie to the mining recorder, or in case j of his absence slull leave with the officer or other person in charge of the mining recorder's office, such existing certificate." Accordingly, before the passage of an alien exclusion law, any alien may license himself to enjov all the rights of a free miner in British Columbia for as manv years as he chooses to pre-license himself.
