Thirty-five Vessels Carrying Gold Seekers At Skaguay. Cap:, lia writ of the S. S. Austra- s to San Francisco from Se-al- tie a foT.ows: "Here we are back at Seattle after Koing rounds first Seattle, then Tacoma, then Pore Townsend, then Victoria, Juneau and Skaguay, back to Juneau and Seattle. We bad 4 -."- pas sengers, horses, cattle and donkeys, and quarters of beef and mutton the whole length of the deck. I think the whole- community ' has gone mad. Men who cull themselves as gentleman lose all signs of gentility when they start for the mines and act more like beasts ihan anything else. "We went from Victoria out the straits outside of Vancouver Island up to latitude GO degrees 20 minutes north, then in by Gape Ommersey, hence we had only 213 miles of inland steaming. . I think by keeping uutside all the time we shall come out all right, although we have to pass some pretty bad places and if it should happen to snow or get thick it would make you fee1! very uncomfortable, for the water is of such great depth that one cannot anchor. "You never saw such a mob as there is now here, all madly rushing for the gold fields. There are thirty-five ves sels carrying passengers from, Port land! and Seattle to Dyea and Skaguay, and all are going full, with more freight than they can carry. Seattle is booming. "It is a sight worth seeing going up these channels mountains on both sides from 3000 to 6000 feet high, cov ered with snow and ice. Some of the glaciers are three miles wide and thirty miles long and from 1000 to 3000 feet deep of the bluest ice. "The night we arrived at Juneau we had to keep first to right and then left to keep clear of icebergs. We broke the record from Victoria to Juneau, 5S hours 13 minutes, and! G hours 53 minutes to Skaguay. The best trip of the Queen was CO hours to Juneau. Our time is not bad for the old ship in strange waters. "The Cottage City came into Juneau while we were there with her stern and forty feet of her keel gone. Thero were three hundred passengers on board. She had three feet of water m her engine room before they could find a place to beacfh her. "The Whitelaw got ashore before she reached Skaguay, and then burned to the water's edge about five hundred yards from us. "I want to give you a little idea about Skaguay. It is built, you might say, on a mud flat, between high mountains. Everything is mountain ui) 'here, and not a bit of level land to be seen. The wharf where we lay is a half-mile long to town, and the rise of the tide is 2S feer. The tide goes nearly to the town; and such a town. It is full of gamblers and gin-mi'ils. You will first come to the house of some family, next door a shop, next a hotel and next J a gambling den. and that is the way all over town. Up the valley toward the White Pass hundreds of dead horses lie, and the water the people use comes down that way. When sum mer sets in they will die off like sheep. "We took forty Indians at Juneau to work cargo, as the gang at Ska guay wants 75 cents and $1 per hour. We had to get United States troops to patrol the docks to protect the Indians. The night the Indians were paid off t'liey got up courage and went up town. About 3 o'clock they came running on board. The gang had fired about a dozen shots at them. You never saw such a scared lot of Indians in your life. The head one woke me up, saying that three of them -had been shot, but the alarm proved to be false, as no one was shot. You can form some idea of the tough crowd 'at Skaguay." An Easter Opening Miss M. E. Killean announces, her Easter opening for Monday. Tuesday i anil Wednesday of this week. Miss Killean's attractive and complete mil linery establishmtnt is in the Arlington Block, on Hotel street. The proprietor has but lately returned from the States and brought out. the latest New York and Parisian fashions. These new goods will bo shown for the first time this morning and are bound to find favor with the ladies. Miss Killean has been catering to the Honolulu millin ery patrons for some time and under stands well their wants and needs. Sh;? has purchased for this retail market, ... . . i the intention ot giving iuii value ana the very best and newest of everything in the millinery line. A .Monster Iicnciit. It may be necessary to repeat the na- live church benefit concert scheduled for Saturday evening next, in ardor to give value received to all the pur chasers of ticket?. Interest in the ev ent is growing and the sale of admis sion slips continues. Enough tickets are out already to comfortably fill the opera house. The promoters of the concert, started out to do something large, will not be satisfied till effort (J ceases to meet with result. There will be fine music and the proceeds will go to assist three native churches in the suburbs. At the concert will b-:- af forded an unusual ooporumity to hear ! the -be.-t native musicians. A Backdown. an exchange published ays an exchange published in tne States: "Oxnard has concluded that it win not pay to antagonize trie sugar ; beet growers near Grand Island, Neb., so he has withdrawn the clause pro viding that in case of Hawaiian an nexation he will pay a half dollar less per ton for beets. This was intended simply to add to the pressure exerted by the sugar trust against annexation. The trust and its backers made a form idable showing, but as most oftheir arguments have been exploded, they have fallen into the condition of a bogy seen in daylight." Races Next Saturday. The next big out-door local event will be the racing on Saturday after noon of this week at Kapiolani park. The horses are all in training again, and some of them are showing tip bet ter than ever before. On Sunday morn ing about 100 horsemen -were at the track to witness some trial perform ances. Just now interest centers in the pacers owned by Cunningham, Mc Donald, Quinn and others. The crack runners will come in for attention later. Every effort will be made to have Saturday's program entirely sat isfactory to all. THE HIGH REPUTATION Of the Criterion Barber Shop, since the advent of the introduction of the individual cups, is constantly increas ing. People, who formerly shaved at home, now patronage this shop. Sealed tenders for furnishing the Board of Health with "pure calf lymph supplied from the Vaccine Institution at Hastings, Hawke's bay, N. Z.," are called for. Parson Smith held forth for two hours in front of Hart & Co., Ltd., last evening after church and for his elo quent ana interesting discourse 'had an attentive audience. With the few days of favorable weather, Contractor Fred. Harrison has made a fine showing on the big two story vottage for the Hawaiian Hotel.
