they have drawn up a petition to H. F.
Alexi.nder. president of the Pacific-Al
aska Navigation company .asking him
to uie his influence toward securing
the desired ends. They point out that
these tickets would have a tendency
to increase traffic, by making travel
more convenient. The petition is be

cial men and will be forwarded to Mr.

SKAGWAY BECOMES
ACTIVE ONCE MORE
Skagway Collector of Customs John
P. Hugh has returned after paying an
official visit to Skagway, and brings
tho news that tho city at the head of
Lynn canal is again taking on the airs
of prosperity which characteried her
in the early days. "Skagway has pass
ed her period of depression," said Mr.
? Pugh, "and is now ono of the liveliest
I cities in the North."
Since the taking over of the boats
and transportation business of the
Northern Navigation Company by tho
White Pass additional forces of men
have been put on in the offices and tho
wharf, now families have moved there
and now there is hardly a vacant liv
ing room in the city.
F. B. Wurzbacher, general agent of
tho White Pass, Is in Skagway as is al
so Assistant Superintendent Gordon,
arranging for the handling of the in
creased business. Mr. Pugh says that
these gentlemen reported to him that
they have thirty thousand tons of
freight in sight now for shipment to
river points, 5000 tons of which will
go to Dawson as soon as the river is
open.
The copper mines at Whitehorso
have resumed the shipment of ore an
daily trains are bringing out tonnage
for transportation to the smelter. Tho
talk of constructing a smelter is again
becoming convincing, and the survey
ing of tho government road from Skag
way to the Summit, which is now go
ing on, adds prophecy of better things.
Northern Commercial Company Uses
White Pass.
The purchase of the Northern Navi
gation company fleet by the White
Pass, it is claimed by officials of the
latter company, will result in tho
Northern Commercial company using
the White Pass and Yukon Route
more than ever before. Heretofore
the Northern Commercial company has
via its own steamers from St. Michael
forwarded its freight almost entirely
up the river. Now, much of It will
cross White Pas sand go down the
river.
There was sunshine in "the old
town" and the flowers were budding
and blooming when Mr. Pugh left,
which he did with something of re
gret for that was his former home.

fylng Saturday before the coroner's

Accident In Early Morning.
RIMOUSKI, Canada, June 1. ? The
coroner's inquest over the remains of
victims of the Empress of Ireland dis
aster developed that the collision be
tween the liner and the Danish collier
Storstadt occurred at 2 o'clock Friday
morning in a thick fog. The Empress
was bound from Quebec to Liverpool
and was making her way slowly down
the St. Lawrence in the heavy fog.
The Storstadt was coming up stream,
heavily laden with coal for Quebec.
The Empress sank within 14 or 15
mlnues after the collision. The sink
ing was hastened by the explosion that
followed when the water reached the
boilers. Hundreds were hurled Into
the sea by the explosion; and other
hundreds died in their staterooms on
account of the suddenness of the ca
tastrophe.
The accident occurred at a point
where the St. Lawrence river merges
into the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The
estuary Is about 40 miles in width.
