O'CONNOR Latest Novelties in Tobacco Jars and Pipe Racks at Burford's Pioneers Who First Broke j Trail Into the Yukon Captain S. T. Klncaid, of Ruby, a i pioneer of the Yukon, writes as fol-1 lows in the Ruby Record-Citizen, about the men who first broke trail into the Yukon valley, and other sections of Alaska: "I would like to say a few words about the real pioneer ? who first broke trail into the Yukon valley and gave up their lives that we might fol low in their footsteps and have the honor of calling ourselves pioneers of Alaska. It was these grand old men that founded the order called the Yukon Order of Old Pioneers. It was this order that gave birth to our pres ent organization, the Pioneers of Alas ka. "Hut. first of all. what is a pioneer? "Pioneers are the descendants of the , restless and impulsive peoples of the earth. For hundreds of years the rest-1 less souls of other nations have con- j stantly broken away from their sur-! rounding environments and the narrow restraints of home ties, ever reaching out for the receding frontier, with their faces turned toward the setting sun, until the great Pacific barred their further progress. We have our Clark and Lewis pioneers, who blazed the trail from the Mississippi river to the Pacific ocean, opening up the grandest country on the continent today and laying the foundation for millions of happy homes. After taming the wild and woolly West this same pioneer spirit reached out for new fields to conquer. With this same pioneer in stinct such men as Jack McQuesten, A1 Mayo. John Treadwell, Joe Juneau and many others headed their course northward. Ever pressing upward and onward, these grim patriarchs of old. with a pack upon their backs, hanging on by their eyebrows, as it were, scaled the Ohilkoot pass, floated down the Yukon river, discovered and lo cated the placer camps of Fortymile and Circle City, laying the foundation for the privileges and opportunities which we now enjoy. Old Father Time has been very busy with his reap hook, and many of these old Alaska pioneers sleep in places today on the banks of the Yukon river, beneath the spreading branches of a ? friendly birch, miles away from loved ones at home, with nothing to break the still ness of the monotony save the mania cal whimper of the polar wind. "Now, I ask, is it not fitting that we should found an order that cherish es the memory of these old Alaska pio neers who gave up their lives that we might enjoy the fruits of civiliza tion? What a contrast between the present and the past! People who come to Alaska today board a mag nificent steamer at Seattle. At Skag way they are transferred to a lux urious palace car on the White Pass railroad, that wends its way like a snake up the White Pass mountains. At Whitehorse they get aboard a steamboat which is a floating palace, with comfortable staterooms and the culinary department unsurpassed. They steam down this mighty Yu kon. with its banks dotted with beau tiful towns and villages, with their churches and schoolhouses, all the ear marks of civilzation. Now, 1 must say, the people of Alaska and the Out side world owe these old, horny-hand ed pioners a debt of gratitude which they can never repay to those noble men, who found Alaska a howling wil derness and left a trail of civilization behind them, and made it possible for us to develop a mining field second to none this side of the Transvaal; to these brave men, whose words were as good as their bond; who did not know how to use a padlock; who al ways extended the right hand of good fellowship; who lived and died like brothers, and who knew no such thing as mining litigation. "Now, in conclusion, I will say. let us reproduce those good old days, l.et us all join hands and go marching down the corridor of time with pAce and good-fellowship toward all men and enmity towards none." | Alaska News Notes i: t I I"!-;--!"'"!"!- I'l-'I-I-I-M-r A debating society has been organ ized by the Arctic Brotherhood of Iditarod. The first subject debated was: "Is marriage a failure?" It was decided that it is not. * * * A moose made a heroic effort one day last month to save its life while trying to cross the Kenal river. For an hour and a half it struggled to get a foothold on solid ice or reach shore, but exhaustion came on and it was compelled to abandon the struggle. As a humane act, a bullet from the gun of a local guide ended its suffer ing and life. ? ? * J. O. Patten, of the Kern creek hotel, Cook inlet, complains that a Seattle furrier gave him the bunk. Mr. Pat ten had a handsome, silver-tipped bear skin, which he prized very highly and which he desired mounted. He took it to a furrier, with a Russian appel lation, who has been in business for twenty years in the Spirit City. When Mr. Patten returned for the finished product he found that a very infer ior skin had been substituted for the beautiful hide which he had left there. m * ? Valdez proposes to organize an ath letic club, and also a gymnasium. ? ? ? John L. Timmins, the field man of the Los Angeles capitalists, who in tend engaging in industrial enter- t prises in the Tanana valley, has been | confined at St. Joseph's hospital, ( Fairbanks, with typhoid fever. * * ? Mayor Dan Driscoll is in receipt of f a letter from Dan Sutherland, the Sen- ( ator-elect, stating that he will arrive \ in Fairbanks in the early part of Feb- t ruary on business. It is also probable I that the Senators and Representatives ( from Nome may arrive in Fairbanks f at the same time, in which event a t preliminary pow-wow may be held l for harmonious deliberations on mat- \ ters that will be of equal interest to 1 both districts from which the electors r come, says the Fairbanks Citizen. c ? . ? t The pipe line by which fresh water is conveyed to the Cliff mine, near Val dez, from the lake on the hill, was froz- c en during the recent cold snap, and I the shortage of water caused the man agement to shut down the mining op erations underground until the break j could be repaired. The shut down was a but a short time. ? ? ? Matt Lindquist, an old time miner ^ and prospector, of Valdez, died in that e city a few days ago, the result of an ^ exposure after been shipwrecked in j Valdez Narows. s ? ? ? r The barge Palmyra towed by tug r Pioneer left Skagway last Thursday o with a cargo of eighteen hundred tons s of Pueblo copper ore which has been i< loaded into her hold during the past few days. The ore will go to the smelter at Tacoma, Wash., and while it is on its way the bunkers are to he filled for another shipment. ? * * Billy Little, formerly of Cordova, has bonded his Golden Eaple claim at Port Wells, to Sain Silverman, for $30,000. ? * * Bringing a herd of 34 reindeer for Sam Appelbaum, the Idltarod com mission merchant, Peter Bals, arrived from Unalakleet via Kaltnp, after two weeks spent on the journey. The herd was halted three miles below town were the animais were butchered and dressed for the market. There's a man called Ed. Jerm who springs into the spot-light with a story of Alaska fauna in the Tanana val ley, which amounts to something. He is working a quartz prospect on up per Chatanika and when on his way up at the present time, says the Fair says that he was surrounded by a herd of 3,000 caribou and had a hard time getting out of the antlered mob. The man says he stood to watch them pass, and behold they surrounded him to watch him what he was up to. They were quite tame and did not molest him. ? W 9 Twenty-six new members were in itiated into Nome Igloo, No. 1, Pio neers of Alaska, at a recent session. * * * Eighty ounces in sixty hours was the result of a clean-up at the News joy quartz mine mill, in the Fairbanks iistrict. a ? * That quartz development in the near 'uture will be as common as placer iperations are today is evident by the vay in which ledges are being opened ip at the present time, says the aFir lanks Citizen. Victor Lundblad, the luartz man, is at this time busily en gaged in ascertaining the length of he vein of the Ruby claim, which le has been working. The claims, vhich at one time were considered as leing too remote for working, are low being brought to that stage of levelopment by which may be found he values in the ore. * ? ? Thomas McGrade has been appoint id United States Commissioner at ?ong creek. Ruby district. ? * * The Riverside, the first hotel in ditarod, a log structure, was sold at ictuion recently for $125. ? * ? John Holmes, of Iditarod, intends o secure the greatest dogteam that ver raced in. Alaska, and will have he team ready for entrance in the Ul-Alaska Sweepstakes at Nome next pring. Holmes' dogs won the Idlta od Derby last year, making the 60 niles in 7 hours 7 minutes and 44 sec onds, over a bad course. Holmes will on begin to rake the interior of Alas La for his new team.
