April 10, 1S9S. The Alaska rush has abated some now and as a consequence many steamers which have arrived here to take part in car rying the crowds go to their destina tions with a very few passengers. The freight for northern points however, is still very large and all available space on steamers and ships has been spoken for in advance for the next few weeks. From Mr. E. Hoppe who left here for the eldorada and arrived at Dye a, I received a letter of which following extracts will perhaps be of interest: "Having arrived at my destination (Skaguay) at daylight, I looked for a nlace to sleep, which I found at 'The Kentucky Liquor House' which va recommended to me as a good place for a man of moderate means. I re tired above the dance hall and then listened to the pounding on the piano and the squeaking of the violin mixet: with the coarse singing. "During the whole night, I heard no thing but pistol shots, music, etc. The next morning I had the luck to find a former acquaintance of mine with whom I obtained quarters. "During the indescribable north wind, which will go through the small est crevice, I saw that the people throw water on the roof and agains the walls of houses. The water froze immediately and as the wind canno go through ice it became less unbear able for the inhabitants of the nouses, 'Three miles north or Skaguay is 'Liarsville,' a very fitting name which also might be well fitted for Skaguay, Then comes Porcupine, the first, sec ond and third bridge until at last you reach the summit. Here it is that the Canadian Government has her customs offices. "Of all the evils in Skaguay, the postoffice is the worst as I and others have waited three and half hours and longer before receiving mail and a times the office is closed for two and three days. "The saloon men, who are at the same time the aristrocracy with the gamblers, seem to be the master of the situation. But everywhere, as also in Skaguay there are people who stil have lac nor and character. "The cheating and outrages on the wharf are something friglitful and hardly describable largerin Dyea than in Skaguay. If you leave the vesse and step on the wharf it says -Two bits please' and for every packag 'two bits.' For every ton of freight which I had on the ship Lucile, I paid $2.50 .wharfage. I had gone ahead on .the aforesaid ship to sell my goods. I had sold wheat and oats to a coun tryman of mine and was loading it upon a wagon when a friend called to me, 'Come :here; a man here is load ing all your hay on his wagon.' In a minute, I was there and sure enough the unknown had already fourteen bales of my ih,ay on his wagon ana was just getting ready to drive away when I caught him. Immediately asked him who gave him a right to take away my hay. I called a few people to the spot a,nd it was only wit-h difficulty that I again came into posession of my property. With my lumber I had the same trouble. What shall one do however, without courts and without laws? One must always be on the lookout and if you are not you are liable to lose the shirt from your back provided you still have one. 'Quite a few persons have returned lately from the interior of Alaska and report that about ten to twenty-five million of dust will be brought from Dawson and vicinity.' Prince Duigi of Italy who it will be remembered climbed to the summit of Mount St. Ellias last year has fitted out a large expedition for Alaska to go to Kotzebu Sound. Mr. George Sheehan Washington Bullian who a vear asro lost a sum of money in a robbery in Honolulu passed through the city here recently from the Islands, staying here long enough, to get a thousand dollar outfit from some of his friends. There are several schooners and ships already gone to St. Micheal to be the first to go up the Yukon by the all river route. The next rush for Alaska is expected when the all river route to the Yukon can be used. AUGUST TOELLNER. An Artistic Chalk Plate. As good a piece of chalk plate work as could be produced in any country is shown in the Advertiser this morning. Harry Roberts reproduced the draw ings of the "Department Trophies" by the ordinary chalk plate process and besides did the stereotyping and fin ishing himself. The work is really better than much of the "zinco" re sults shown in papers in the United States. F-scape From Sickness. Speaking on the matter of sickness in this city, one of the promnient phy sicians said yesterday: "The people of Honolulu may thank their luck- stars that there has been as little sickness as there has. Fortune seems to h-iv smiled kindly on the place. After the recent rain storm the weather did not clear up right away but continued cloudy for several days. Slight rains were also prevalent. Had the sun come out brightly immediately after the heavy rains, there is no doubt what ever that there would have been a great deal more sickness in the city. The few days cloudy and slightly rainy weather was the only thing that saved A Good Selection. It was given out at the Executive Building yesterday that Geo. W. Smith of Benson. Smith & Co. Ltd.. had been asked to nil tne existing vacancy m the Board of Health. If Mr. Smith ac- cept .3 he will prove a valuable addi- tion to tins important ooay. .ir. Smith has been in business in Ilono- 1U1U 1 1 tTcl 1 1 V J Vttl O. A Vi tX VWUic J k. terms he has been active as a Queen's Hospital trustee, has been a member of the Council of State and has performed in a highly satisfactory manner, much other public service. Mr. Smith has yet to hold his first salaried commis sion. At present he is a member of the Educational Commission and has been a working factor with -his "colleagues. If Mr. Smith goes to the Board of Health there will be a vacancy on the Educational Commission. The matter will be settled in a day or two. Liht Needed. People who are in the habit of going down along by Brewrer's wharf at night 'time, are complaining about the piles of pipe that are now strewn about, from the wharf mentioned, almost to Queen street. At 'night time no lights are put out to warn the people and the pipes lie ithere as a constant menace to those who (happen to pass that way. It is particularly dangerous to people who use wheels. GIVE YOURSELF "WEIGHT. Don't give yourself away by accept ing any of the inferior brands of beer. Be onto yourself and insist on getting "Rainier" and you will be looked upon as being intelligent and up-to-date, especially if you patronize the Favor ite Saloon. W. M. Cunningham, Proprieor of this well-known resort, has been in the business tor many years, ana is a connoisseur in liquors. His establish ment is always orderly, and, with the services of his assistant, Mr. Thomp son, customers are promptly supplied. One Tells Another. e i And so the news spreads and spreads. Housekeepers all around are talking of the fine quality of goods bought at our Grocery Department. As the news spreads, so our groceries spread all over the city, from Waikiki to Palama; from the wharf to 'way up the valley. There is only one conclusion to be drawn, and that is: that the quality of goods must be right not only that, but the prices are right, the attention is right, and the goods are in the right condition. Everyone knows of the American Biscuit Company and the class of goods they make. The following are a few of the many styles of crackers that we carry: Graham Wafer, Honey, Pop ular, Oyster, Cheese, Noah's Ark Ani- y 11 1 1 1 -v x 1 mais uor tne nttie ones), iretzeis, Butter, Showflake, Milk, Wine, Water, Gluten Wafer, Ginger Cakes, Ginger Nuts, Nic Nacs, Saloon Pilot, and Pilot Bread. n k SUGAR. This is cne of the few things that does not require much mention. Suffice it to say that we have an ample supply of Dry Granulated, Cube, Powdered, and Confectioners'. t n CANNED FRUITS. In buying these goods you cannot be too careful; many people have ex perienced rather disastrous results from buying cheaD trash, nut up in tin. We can vouch for the brands we earn. In the Cooking Fruits, we have a full as sortment m gallon cans, very7 econo mical when a larger amount is requir ed. The Table Fruits have the best known brands in the market, put up in two and a half pound tins, and a smaller size known as the lunch tins for campers and picnicers. v Ex Warrimoo: resli New Zealand Batter.
