The Editor of the News Visits his Former home
The News man boarded the Cottage j
City last week for a trip to Fort \Vrun
gel our former home. The run down !
was without incident except only, that
we were for five or six hours a short [
distance this side of the narrows. The
night was dark, the fog heavy and there
was quite a sea running. There being
a fair wind, when the captain concluded
to lay too, he turiKKl the vessel's head
to the wind and in making the turn,
the huge boat gave several of those in
describable lateral rolls that shook up
the dishes in great shape. Everybody}
was in bed and there was no seasick
ness, for anybody with a spark of sense

The Cottage City is a very nice boat, i
roomy aud comfortable, and she carries
a great big, red cheeked, handsome
stewardess that is however, the nicest
thing on the vessel.
At Wrangelour stay was short, but
we did have time to see a few of the
boys. 4%Dad" St rouse looks as natural
as an old slipper and he is as jolly and
good naturod as ever. Duucan McKin
non still possesses the ability of telling
a good story, aud his three clerks. Jack
Collins, Donald Siuclaire, and Eugene
Haw, wait on the customers the same
as of old. Reid and Sylvester,
two of the best meu that ever lived,
are still having a good trade at the old :
stand. J. E. Sales looks happy, but
don't want to fool around with giant
powder any more. Mr. Whitney, the
clerk, is all right and swears by Wrau
("inn?? TtlonmImrdt is as iollv and
fid. uvv?bv ? ,
pood natured as ever, except when you
talk about his Juneau lawyer. Capt.
Eldridge, who wanted to join his regi
meut at Manila, is still 011 duty, and
now that the war is closed, is reasona
bly happy. Judge Tustiu was seen at
his office, but was not dispensing jus
tice while we were in the city. He is
the best Commissioner in all Alaska.
Deputy Marshal Grant, the best satis
fied man in the city, has his charming
wife and children with him in his fine
residence 011 the hill. Judge Sund
macher was warming his shins at Dr.
Campbell's stove when we saw him. Ho
ought to be happy for he, Tustin, Clark
and Iugersoll are the only att'ys left.
Mr. James Ker of the Troup wharf is as
genial and pleasant as ever. Our friend
Komer of the McKinnon wharf is still
in evidence. He goes along about his
business in a quiet way, but at the same
time, he is one of the braiuiest men in
all Alaska. Yes, we saw a few of the
boys and they are a jolly let of fellows,
but our space will not permit naming
all we met.
We returned 011 the Dirigo. You have
all htard of the Takii wind. Well, we
struck it, or rather it struck the boat.
The Dirigo didn't roll sideways, it was
the other way. We didn't get seasick

minutes before our turn came. You
ought to have seen them skedaddling
to their state rooms. One of the lady
passengers didn't have time to get to
her room so she made au awful rush
for the side door. She leaned over the
railing and in less than three-quarters
of a second she got rid of a dinner that
it had taken her three-quarters of an
hour to store away. She reminded us
of the woman, who, in describing a sim
ilar experience, said that she knew she
had a strong stomach because she could
throw it as far as any of them. After
we passed the mouth of the Taku the
sea was calm and the passengers got to
gether again and laughed over their ex

Glad to pet home? Why, of course,
"There's no place like home.*' Wran- : T
pel is a nice little town, quiet now, but
it will come out all right in the spring
when the ground settles. We regret
that we could not visit our friend Wil

to return and read some of his proofs

permit of it.

A Hobson in Our AHd.st -Will It Become d
Epidemic. t
Last Friday evening the Lone Fish- 4
erman pulled up to the Douglas City s
wharf with Capt. Bell at tlie wheel. ^
Several passengers, of both sexes.board- 1
ed the saucy little craft, after which
she started for Juneau. The little en- j *
gine was merrily pull ing away and the *
Lone Fisherman was rocking to and *
fro. but cutting t he water with ease and ; J
rushing along as though a torpodo a
boat was in pursuit. The sea was rath
er heavy, but uot dangerously rough, v
however, and when a short distance i j
from the wharf she had just left, the
rudder went to pieces and the little n
craft paid no further attention to the r
.?;,.Ai.nne iif t iu? wheel. Tlie boat

j "took to the woods" on the opposite j u
side of the channel, or rather she drift- \
ed off in that direction which frightened J
sonio of the passengers noarly to death.
; A young lady from this city was near- i
I ly paralyzed with fear, regardless of 1
, the assurances of kind hearted Capt. j 1
! Bell. There are a few old "sea dogs" j
who can run a boat without a rudder, j1
j there are not many that can do it, but [ j
I Capt. Bell is one of them, and what did (1
he do? Why, he just took the Lone j<
j Fisherman up to the Juneau landing j
and saw all the passengers safely on the s
wharf. The young lady referred to was a
overjoyed when she saw the boat tied 1
up to the wharf and she made one grand
I rush for Capt. Boll and she didnt do a ' i
I thing to him but kiss him, yes, she ' 1
kissed him good and hard, in a regular j \
a la Ilobson manner. The Captain,?
blushed, in fact he turned all kinds of
colors. The News man spoke to him j ]
about the matter, but all ho said was .>
j "yum yum." i
Wo hate to do it but we must. Every-1
? thing goes at cost or under at Frank :1
