CIIILKATS DO NOT ATTEMPT
TO STOP BOAT
Indians Have Made No Further Move Since
Notifying Jack Dalton That His Boat
Must Close Operations On Chilkat
There has been no further move on i
the part of the Chilkat Indians since
the notice was served upon Jack Dalton
that the little gasoline boat Chilkat
must cease plying the Chilkat river
from tide water to the head of naviga
tion, though there is a disposition to
believe the trouble is not entirely over.
I The Indians have persisted in insist
ing that they would never permit the
navigation of the Chilkat, and once
upon a time a little steaml>oa'/ that was
put upon the river was mysteriously
burned. It was believed, and it is said
| that there was good evidence to serve
as a foundation for the belief, that the
, burning was done by Indians.
| It is thought that the Indians, if en
tirely sober, would not do any thing so
rash as to harm those employed in the
operation or the management of the
Chilkat, but whiskey is not. hard to get,
so it is said, at Ilaines or in the vicin
ity of that place. The Indians seem to
have a subterranean connection with
the booze supply, and it is apparently
inexhaustible. The Chilkat braves un
derstand that it will not be safe to at
tempt any funny work now that the
white population in their district is so
large and soldiers are so plentiful and
accessible, but if they should take it
into their heads to act when intoxi
cated, the Chilkat might be attacked
and burned.
