Misconception of Alaska.
The annual excursions of the Pacific
Coast Steamship Compauy, stray con-:
gre9smen, senators and touring com-'
mittees from house and senate, who j
have made vacation trips into the coun
try; returning argonauts attaches ofj
northern corporations, have done much j
to disabuse the orthodox idea that the
shores of Alaska are ice-bound and
that the country is covered with eter-1
nal snow. Put the old misconception
that prevailed at the time of the trans
fer yet maintains throughout tho world
to too great an extent. Pictures of ice
covered craft,icebergs, glacial pinacles,
snow fields, sledding scenes and deni
zens clad iu fur, parkas and mucluks '
tend to foster this very unjust belief
in the forbidding frigidity of Alaska.
There has been too much written of
"the vast white silence" aud noteuough i
about the pleasant realities that make
Alaska the delightful country that it is. I
It is strange that it is not yet gener- j
ally conceived that a vast country?a j
third the size of the Uuitcd States?
can have within its boundaries a varie- j
ty of climates.
Oue of the great lessons that should
be taught the world by the Alaskan ex
hibit at the Louisiana Purchase Expo-1
sition is, that there are portions of AI-1
aska where vegetation grows with al- j
most tropical luxuriance. That there j
is a vast empire in Alaska where the
mercury does not fall below zero, where !
native grasses grow taller than a mau's
height aud cattle and horses cau win-!
ter without care or shelter. That the i
climate of the Southeastern Alaskan
coast is more equable than that of any
northern states east of the Rocky
mountains. Let summer scenes hang !
upon the walls of Alaska's show build
ing?pictures of fat Aleutian cattle,
the rank vegetation of gardens, the
dense foliage of yellow cedar forests
and their towering irecs. Aud a few
Fourth of July picnic scenes portray
ing ladies in gauzy garments and men
with straw hats might hint at the idea
that should be conveyed.?Skagway Al
Cable for Douglas.
Oil the last AI-Ki, the Electric Light
company received two large cables that
they have been expecting for the past
four months. The reason for the delay
was that the cables had to be made
especially for the company. The two
large spools, weighing in the neighbor- j
hood of 7 tons each, were loaded on a
scow and towed up to the crossing
above Gold creek, to await a favorable
time when tide aud wind would permit j
the cable being laid.
Mr. Margrie, with a large force of,
men, pulled the scow across the chan-1
nel, paying out the cable as they went, j
In three hours, the cable, that had cost j
thousands of dollars, was laying across
the bottom of Gastineaux Channel,
ready to be connected to the mains on J
either side. This will eliminate one i
source of trouble from the many that I
are encountered in running lights in
Alaska, for, should an iceberg or other i
object injure one of the cables, it.
could be cut out until it was repaired, j
and the lights would burn as usual, on i
the uninjured cables. It is not likely (
that all four cables crossing the chan- '
nel would be injured at one time. We/
are informed that this spring another 11
large dynamo will be installed in the [
new addition to the power house, and a <
new pipe liue put down. This will
practically duplicate the plant now
running, and incidentally, guarantee
