ARCTIC BROTHERS INVADE
TOWN OT HAINES
The spirit of fraternal friendship
reigned supreme last night at the
launching of Camp Haines No 17 of the
Arctic Brotherhood. Ths baby camp
ptarts off under auspicious clrcumstau
ces with twenty charter members, and
it is said there will be at least thirty
members within a week. The institu
tion of the camp was followed by sumpt
uous banquet at the Northern hotel, at
which the unity of the Lynn canal
towns of Skagway and Haines and the
success of the Arctic Brotherhood was
toasted.
There were twedty-two members of 1
Camp Ska&way No 1, the mother camp
of the Arctic Brotherhood, present at
the institution of Camp Haines. They
went down on the Union, that craft
making two trips with them yesterday.
Among them were several officers of
the grand camp.
The charter members of the new
camp are as follows:
R M. Odell, S. C. Lucas, J. B. Peter
son, Jno. M. Blankenberg, M McAuley,
T. R Sewell, B. A. Mahan, H. C, Bos
ley, Sol Ripinsky, Robt. E. Sheldoj, I.
Sowerby, Henry Brie, W. B. Stout, J.
G. Morrison, J. W. Martin, M. E.
Handy. Jas. Fay, N. B. Harrison, A. R.
Young and J. F. Tompkins.
The following officers were chos 'D,
Rev. N. B. Harrison, past Arctic chief;
R. M, Odell, Arctic chief; L Sowerby,
vice Arctic chief; W. B. Stout, Arctic
chaplain; H. C. Hosley, Arctic record- '
er; J. G. Morrison, keeper of nuggets;
A. It. Young, Arctic trail guide; j, \v.
Marti Arctic trail blazer; B. A. Mo
han, Arctic keeper of outer tollgate;
James Pay, Arctic keeper of inner toll
gate; J. F. Tompkins, John M. Blank
enburg, Sol Hipinsky, J. B. Peterson,
T. R Sewell, trustees.
After the ioltiation of the new mem
bers and the installation of the officers,
the members of the Skagway and the
Haines cemps participated in one of the
most successful banquets that has ever
taken place in the north.
Dr. L. S. Keller, grand Arctic chief,
was toastmaster. Probably the most
significant speech made was that deliv
ered by the Arctic chief of the new
camp, R. M. Odell, who toasted the
mother camp and the Skagway spirit,
which he said he had admired for many
years. He hoped that the people of
Haines would absorb the public spirit
and (he disposition to acr in unison that
marked Skagway, and he gave expres
sion to the sentiment that another tie
now binds the two cities on Lynn canal.
Happy speeches were also made by
Rev. N. B. Harrison, Major W. P.
Richardson, Dr. L. S Keller, H. B. Le
Fevre, C B. Haraden, G. Chealander,
W. B. Sto'it, A. R. Young, J J. Daly,
I. N. Wilcoxen, E Ruud, T. R. Sewell,
John M. Blankenburg and other i.

the Union at 4:30 o'clock this morning
and the remainder of the contingent
will return on the Peterson this after
noon.
