One of the most interesting Klondike letters yet received here is to David Dayton from Alex. Sheppard. Mr. Sheppard is very well known in Ha waii. He was for a long time carpen ter at Spreckelsville plantation cn Maui and then came to Waianae plan tation on this Island with Manager Center when Mr. Center changed his base. Sheppard is a man who can be relied upon to present the exact facts. ' The former plantation carpenter started for the gold fields well equip ped as to outfit and means. He had the excellent good fortune to form an al liance with an old friend of his who had made one trip into the alluring North. At the date of the letter from Mr. Sheppard, March 26th, he and his part ner were at Sheep Camp, the summit of Chilcoot Pass. In the final 2,000 feet of this climb there is an elevation of 1,000 feet. Steps have been cut into the snow and ice. Posts have been set 100 feet apart and lines run between them. Along this remarkable stairway are wrought out shelves as resting places. Indians and white men pack up the goods and for service charge the good figure of two cents per pound. The Canadian Government requires that each traveler have not less than 1,100 pounds of supplies. The packers take from 25 to 250 pounds each trip and are at work constantly. Many of the owners undertake to do their own work and in some cases women were seen assisting in the trying task. Mr. Sheppard says that at the very summit of the pass he was a little sur prised to find a Japanese in charge of a restaurant. The face must have seemed familiar, but Mr. Sheppard does not say that the Jap had ever been in Hawaii. This little brown landlord charges 75 cents for a meal and 5 cents for a drink of water. Wood has to be hauled a great distance to be used in melting the snow. Eating snow or ice has a bad effect on the mouth and on the general health. There is 20 to 30 feet of isnow at Sheep Pass and snow ts till falling. It was the intention of Mr. Sheppard and his friend to proceed it . 11. - j so soon as xne weainer moueraieu. Hundreds of others are also wiating. Dowm the Chilcoot Pass in the direc tion of the trail leading to the gold fields the descent is very sharp. The course s are "V" shaped and a trip down is the thrill of a life time. Mr. Sheppard intimates that there is much hardship in the trip, "but says that by care, sickness can be avoided. Those who are laid low are men who work themselves into a great perspiration and then catch cold. Mr. Sheppard and his partner will be able to build their own boat when navigation is opened and hope to be early in a sec tion reputed to be very rich in gold. Y. 31. C. A. Tonight. The complete program for the Y. M. C. A. anniversary celebration to be held this evening has been published in this paper. It may be added now that everyone will be we'icome and that the evening will be-one of marked pleasure to all. There will be excellent music and for the good night, refresh- Hnents will be served. Features of the gathering will be reports and addres ses incidental to the retirement of President A. B. Wood and the installa tion of President W. C. Weedon. One item which should attract is the sale by auction of a collection of 20 pic tures. Titese are highly artistic prints from the origmals of artists of world wide fame. Eighth Sentence. In the Police Court yesterday fore noon Robert Kaili was found guilty of the charge of gambling and sentenced to pay a fine of $15 and costs. Chock Pau was found guilty on the charge of larceny in the second degree and sentenced to a term of two years at hard labor and to pay the costs of Court. Chock Pau has already served seven sentences in jail. It seems im possible for him to keep out of mis chief. His last offense was the larceny of a fishing net from .a Japanese. Woman's Board Meeting. This afternoon at 2:30 o'clock there will be a meeting at Central Union Church parlors of the Woman's Board. This will be a session of especial in terest.
