A Miner's Tribute to His Dog
Under the modest heading of "A
Miner's Tribute to His Dog,"J.W. Park,
of Klondike Hill, writes to the Dawson
News a brief, yet eloqaent, tribute to j
the Yukon miner's greatest frieud and i
fellow'pioneer. Mr. Park did not ask j
to have bis uame given in connection
with the little eulogy, but it is so '
touching and no doubt will so appeal j
to Ynkoners everywhere, who have ]
fought the grim battle on the trail with
their faithful doge, that the story is j
here given with full credit:
"Poor, faithful Jack is dead. Though i
old and full of years, bis master is sad j
and grieved tbat be is gone. No more j
will his voice be beard along the sluice j
box lines in the deep, dark cuts, to give j
notice that be was on guard while his
master slept. No louger will his voice
be heard on the bill and in the Klon
dike vale, to give warning to the snow
shoer that he was hot on his trail. No
more will he be watchful and vigilant
lest some barm befall his master.
u 'If a man die, he shall live again T "
If a man's dog die, .shall be live again?
Who shall say? Faithful Jack, ere the
sear and yellow leaf of age had over
taken him, made many a long trip over
the Northland's winter trails. He was
a pioneer dog, having been brought to
the Klondike from the States in the
early days. He had helped to the best
of his dog ability in the development
of this golden Northland, and now his
work is done and he sleeps peacefully
under the snow. When the springtime
comes we shall bury him on a little
knoll overlooking hie favorite bunting
ground and inscribe on his tombstone:
"Here Lies Faithful Jack, a Pioneer of
the Klondike." ? Dawson News.
The White Pass & Yukon Railway
company, which has 81,000,000 worth of
Canadian steamers lying in its bone
yard on the Yukon, relics of the Klon
dike days, but well preserved in the
dry climate of the Yukon basin, has
awarded a contract to Nilsen & Kelez,
of Seattle, for the construction of two
Yukon river steamboats to ply between
the Canadian Yukon and the American
Yukon. American boats are permitted
to operate between Fairbanks and
Dawson, which is a Canadian subport.
The United States . has refused to make
Fairbanks a subport, and Canadian
steamers ply only betweeu Dawson and
Whitehort<e. The new steamerdfcwhich
will be knocked down and shipped to
Skagway by steamer as freight, will be
hauled by rail from Skagway to White
horse and there put. together. As
American vessels they can navigate the
water of both countries. A rate war
between the White Pass company and
the Northern Navigation company on
both passengers and freight is expected
to begin as soon as the great river
opens. The White Pass <fc Yukon Rail
way company is a West Vijginia corpo

to the bottom of the sea." Not so. It
is but a stone's cast. "A friend is best
found in adversity." Not so, for then
there is none to be found. "The pride

Not so. The labor of the poor makes
the pride of the rich.

Capt. E. p. Bertholf, commanding the
United States revenue service, in hie
annual report sent to congress, recom-?
mends the construction of a vessel to
replace the Perry, wbiob was lost in
the Bering sea during the summer of
1910, and appropriations for three ves-'
sols to replace the Woodbury, Manhat'
tan and Winona, all old nud unserVice-'
able. He sayH that tbe wireless appar
atus now on all sea going revenue
cutters should be replaced by the most
modern mechanism obtainable and a
constaut radio watcb should be main"
tained. The curreot appropriation her
points out, permits only two wireless
operators on each cutter and three are
necessary for continuous service. Ves
sels, cargoes and derelicts saved by the
revenue cutter service during the year
were valued at 810,711,748. Fifty- five
I derelicts and other dangerous obetruc
1 tions to navigation were removed or de
; stroyed. "For every dollar tbe gov
| eminent- invested in the maintenance
'of the revenue cutter service," saye
Capt. Bertholf, "there has been a return
; of $4.36 in the form of property saved
from the sea, arid this in addition to
lives saved aud other beneficial acts
j performed in the interests of mankind."
! After twelve years of ceaseless effort,
two Alaska coal claims bare at length
i been patented. We bope this is the
tbin edge of the wedge, and from now
on other claims will be allowed and the
situation relieved, says the Pacific
Mining Journal. The claims now
, opened to use will be of little benefit in
relieving the coal famine, as they are
both small ones, and produce lignite.
One is a 50-acre claim near Homer on
| Kenai peninsula. There is abundance
of coal, such as it is, but the gra le is
poor. A number of years ago the
j Southern Pacific railway experimented
with this product, but found it uu
available for their use as it coutaiued
particles of fossil rosin that were un
consumed in the locomotive fire boxes
and were sent out from the stacks and
j set fire to the forests. The other claim
i now patented is lignite also, not a thick
vein, consists of 127 acres and is in the
| east side of Admiralty island. It is not
likely that this property either will
produce a coal that will be commer
cially available on any considerable
; scale. We do uot wish to be hasty, but
! it looks as though the letter of our de
mands had been complied with in a
very small way and the substance of
| them denied. We have asked for bread
. and they have given us a stone.
