Yoar Patronage Solicited Scenic Alaska (Continuod from first pa?r?) for the first time. There are few traces of the boom days. The town has well built houses and stores where otioe there was a city of tents. A railroad train puffs down to the wharf to take freight from the ships, and save for the wouderful soenery there is nothing one might not expect to see in a small city back iu the States. Returning from a trip up Lynn ca nal to Skagway, the Alameda turned its prow toward the Pacific and passed j through Icy straits. Bergs discharged into Glacier bay by the great Muir glacier floated in the water. Occasion ally we passed close to floating bergs | of great size, but the smallest would have been big enough to have ripped holes in the vessel's bottom should a collision occur. The whip went care fully and Capt. Warner did not leave the navigating bridge until we had passed from the toweriug height* that lined Cros-s sound and plowed into the Gulf of Alaska. Far away to the north we saw a range of mountains loftier than any we had seen on the way up. We were informed that it was the Fairweather range and that the white, glistening peak farther j to the north was Mt. St. Elias, whose white head towers more than 19,000 feet above the sea. Lolling on a deck chair the tourist lazily dreams of the treasure-laden ground, the sunlit valleys and the roil ing *undra that lie beyond that mighty barrier of snow. The view of Alaska from the sea is forbidding. The moun tain ranges appear to line the coast in i a long, uubrokeu barrier, lhe eternal j snows give uo hint, of the more inviting , interior where gardens bloom aud the summer air is hot. One naturally thiuks of the stalwart pioneers who passed through that wall of snow and ; wrested the treasure from the gravels on a hundred creeks. Whales blowing and kavorting in the distance kept the passengers ou deck while friendly porpoise raced with the ship. The sea was as smooth as a lake. There was no swell aud an occasional breeze sent ripples scamperiug across the wide ex pause of water. As was usual in summer, in northern waters, the Pacific was as peaceful as a pond. We were told that during the stormy | season, mighty winds swept across the gulf aud piled great, waves on the shores of Controller bay aud that ships anchored off these unprotected shores, sometimes drag their weights to the beach. Approaching the entrance to Prince William sound we saw a long narrow ribbon of laud that euded m a curious tower of rock that rose from the sea like the horn on the nose of a rhiuos ceros. This is Cape St. Elias. Waves for a million years have washed upon this strip of rock uutil its apex ap pears to be as sharp as a knife blade. | Mariners who pass in the night get a good offing in order to pass this dan gerous rock for uo warning beacon shiues from it and it is reputed to be one of the most dangerous places ou the Alaska coast. Euteriug Prince William souud the steamship turned eastward and was j soon at Cordova, the termiuus of the Copper river railroad. While the Ala meda was discharging cargo and taking on copper ore from the Keuuicott miue the passengers took a railroad traiu for a visit to the great glaciers fifty miles inland. The Childs glacier ou the left and the Miles glacier on the right as the train approached a croasiug on the Copper river presented a sight not soon to be j National Forest Timber for Sale i Sealed bids will be received by the Forest Supervisor, Ketchikan, Alaska, up to and including July 11, 1913, for 1,000,000 feet B.

The train was stopped at the big eteel bridge and the sightseers walked down to the river's edge for a nearer view of the great, streams of ice that lie between the mountain ranges. With a frontage of three miles the Milos glacier lifted its ice pinnacles to a height of 300 feet. Crunching and groaning, the glaciers occasionally seemed to rip great blocks of ioe from their cliffs and drop them into the muddy waters of the rivers. When the bergs were *4born" the splash in the river sent great waves to the opposite shores that swept up the banks and toppled over alder trees. It was with difficulty that the trainmen got the pas sengers back on board, so reluctant were they to leave the magniflcen scene. After leaving Cordova, the next stop was at Valdez, where the government road to Fairbanks begins. Back of Valdez four or five miles is another glacier. The glacier seemed so near that the tourists started to walk to it, and turned back only when they were informed of the real distance. We spent several hours in Valdez and wheu the Alameda drew away from the wharf she pointed bar nose down ths sound toward Resurrection bay, where Seward, the prettiest town in Alaska, is located. At Seward the tourists took a gasoline car over the Alaska Northern railroad to Kenai lake. The trip was made through picturesque valleys, where an occasional cabin and tiuy ranches were seen. The breach iu the snowy wall on the Alaska shore through which the railroad passes gave the tourists the first bint of what the interior country was like. The railroad is built seventy-one miles inland and its projectors had planned to extend it to Fairbanks. Tributary to this rail road are the Matanuska coal fields, which have not as yet beeu developed. Had the A! :meda been the private yacht of the passengers, the schedule could not have been arranged better. Wheu the tourists had tired of one scene the Alameda was ready to sail, and from port to port they visited a country not to be equaled for scenic beauty elsewhere in the world. Ou the returu trip the steamship stopped in turn at the various towns visited on the journey northward. Things overlooked ou the first visit were seen on the second, so that the tourists took away with them a lasting impression of wouderful mountains, eternal ice rivers, beautiful abysses and wooded hills. Wheu the Alameda drew into her pier at Seattle, one pas senger said: "I'd like to stay aboard and see it all over again." ? Seattle P.-I. The break in the cable is seriously discomoding the lighthouse service in this region, says the Ketchikan Miner. Practically every assistant aud keeper iu the western stations has asked to be relieved and it is impossible to get skilled meu here to take out there to place in charge. Under ordinary con ditions this would not result iu such a serious hardship, as a wire could be sent below for help. The break pre vents this, however, and the Columbine must wait here until a letter can be dispatched to the States and meu se cured for the positions to be vacated. The reason the men have all resigned is the poor mail service the stations have had during the past winter, some of them having been uine months with out mail of any kind or word of auy nature from the outside, which is more than the average man cares to under take.
