OLD" AUSTRALIA
Capt. Houdlette Writes of
His Trip to Alaska.
Former Liner Made a'Record Run.
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.

cannot be avoided any more
than the Friday house clean

a form of house cleaning on
a very large scale. Below we

rather than count them in on
the inventory. Not that there
is anything wrong, just the
contrary, but by selling them

It is confidence in the article you
sell, sufficient to warra. you to
stand by it under all circumstances.
That's the confidence we have in
our goods, and that's why we are
not afraid to stind by them, not
cn!y before, but after they are sold.
All other goods perish, or are con
sumed in a short time and the
dealers' responsibility soon ceases,
but a choice piece cf Jewelry cr
Silverware lasts forever, and the
Jewelers' responsibility with it.
It is to your advantage to pur
chase such, where the guarantee is
your safeguard, where great distance
does not make the guarantee value
less to you, and where it is the
honest endeavor to give satisfaction
in every instance.
