LAST OF IT River N.vigariuD Comes (o hi) End With the arrival of the C'asca and the Dawson, both due this evening, the navigation of the Yukon for the present season will he practically over. The Victorian will take a cargo of rails to Hootalinqua, but there will be no boats to arrive or depart from Dawson. Water transportation will give way for the overland stage business. Stages will begin running from each end with in a few days. The first from Dawson will probably start Sunday and that from Whitehorse Monday. The work on th? Upper Yukon river has been very successful this year. The steamers have had but little diffi culty with the bars notwithstanding that the water has been unusually low, and they have taken more freight at each irip than they have ever done be fore. The plan of having the boats take their cargoes mostly on barges is be ieved to have not a little to do with the success that has been experienced. By that means they have kept the boats from drawing as much water as pre viously. In one way the low water has been an aid to the transportation men. The wa'.er in the river has not run as swift Iv as it usually does and that has helped tlie boat- to make better time with less fuel and less expense in coming up 'stottam than otherwise would have been the case. Dr. and Mrs. Rsrd Entertain Dr. and Mrs Reed entertained at din ner yesterday in honor of E. M.Stevens, of Pittsburg. Mr. Stevens and Dr. Reed were school boys together in Ver mont.
