a quiet smile, and "I guess we'll take the chances ourselves," Not half of those who went away on the Umatilla will be able to secure accommo dation on the City of Topeka, but still they may be able to make connection with other. Sound boats. The Islander, North Pacific and other boats now plying be tween Seattle, -Tacoma, Port :'fownsend and Victoria,. B. C, are being put on the route to Juneau, 'and "the rush to that point will be phenomenal this winter. In anticipation of the rush the Pacific Coast Steamship Company has been sending up all the supplies possible; but yesterday the limit was reached and not an ounce of the overflow was taken. Extra baggage, dried fruit, potatoes and onions were left on the wharf, and the chances are that none of the packages will reach Juneau this season. Among the men bound for Klondyke are "Harry" Long and "Ed" Knox. They do not intend doing any prospecting, but are going on a pure business proposition. They have purchased a thousand paper bacK novels, lor which they paid about $50. On arriving at Dawson City they in tend to start a circulating library. The subsciiptioa will be $25 a month and be fore the winter is over the promoters ex pect to be able to return to San Francisco with more money than they could have earned in the mines. In any event their stocK in trade will not cost them much. Owing to the rush to Klondyke Tamal pais is going to lose one of its attractions. All the donkeys that have been carefully trained to climb the mountain have been sold and their next venture wiil-.be climb ing the divide between Dvea and Lake the best known caterers in Marin County, has purchased the animals for a syndicate. They will be used as pack-animals from Lindeman. "Teddy" O-borne, one of Dyea and will earn their purchase price in one trip over the divide. Among those who went up on the Uma tilla were Sergeant Avon and five mem bers of the United States Marine Corps. These are all the steamer could carry and a further contingent will go on the Wil lamette. The men will be landed at Sitka and irom there will go to Fort Selkirk. From that point they will be detailed to various points on . the Yukon to look after the interests of the American miners. The soldiers who leave hero on the Wil lamette about the end of the month ex pect to reach Fort Selkirk almost as soon as tbeir comrades, who sailed on the Uma tilla yesterday morning. A rush is now made to secure the river steamers and yesterday twice the value of some of them were offered to the owners. fact that the H. C. Grady has made the lun from Astoria to this port leads them to believe that a sternwheeler can make the run to St. Michaels and then start in trading on the Yukon and make a small fortune. The Sunol will be ready for service in a few weeks and when she is in commission the chances are that the Grace Barton will be sold or sent north by the Piper, Aden, Goodall Company. No pas sengers would be taken, but it goes with out saying that the vessel would earn more in three months on the Yukon than she would in fifteen months on the Vallejo route. The Modoc, Constance and half a dozen other sternwheelers are scheduled for the gold fields and the fruit industry of California is liable to suffer in con sequence. When spoken to about the matter yes terday Arthur Piper said: "We have had many an offer for the Grace Barton, bui have no intention of either selling or chartering her. The Sunol will bs ready for work in a few weeks, but we cannot afford to part with her, either. Of course if they offer a small fortune for one of the boats they can have her." f Among those who were down to see the Umatilla off yesterday was Nicholas Zarackis, a '49.r. When asked what lie thought of the exodus he put bis thumb in his mouth and sucked it. "That's what they'll be doing before the middle of next month," said he. "In the Abyssinia mine in Placer County I took out ninety seven ounces in six months. The pros pects are good and I expect to take out 180 ou nces next spring. Now don't you think I'd be a fool to go to Alaska, face the ice and snow, live on the refuse of a camp, take my chance, of locating a mine and leave a sure $5000 aye behind me? No, sir; l.i stay with Placer Count}'. The only kick I have coming is over my pet deer. I called him Adielea (the angel) and he took all his meals from my hands. Hunters in Placer County were hard up for game and they shot ray pet. He had a collar on and was as quiet as a kitten. Why, had I been starving in Alaska I would not have killed the deer any more than I wouid have killed a pet dog." THROUGH CHILCOOT PASS. How a Party Surmounted the Ob- stacles Between Juneau and K'ondyke. Some of the difficulties and perils which must be met and overcome on the trip to Dawson from Juneau by way of the "di vide" were told yesterday by James Brownlie, who recently returned from Alaska. He made the trip overland from Juneau, and. came out by way of the river and St. Michaels. Said Mr. Brownlie: "It took us ninety six days to mak<* the trip from San Fran cisco to Sixty Mile, but twenty-six days of that time we were stuck in the ice on Takiu River, so that had it not been for that delay we should have made the jour ney in a little over two month--. Our party going in consisted of my brother, myself and a friend of ours. Everything went well with us after, ieaving Juneau, and we" soon reached Sheep Camp. There we found a party who had been at that place lor nearly a month waiting for a chance to pet over the summit. Thereare no great difficulties to be encountered in going through Chilcoot Pass provided one makes the trip at the right season of the year. "I have seen so much in ilie papers of late of the terrible hardships which must be endured in going through that pass that I am afraid 1 will not be believed by the public when 1 say that to go over . Chilcoot pass at the proper time is attended by no more danger than a trip up Mount Tamalpais. It is true that in the winter time it is al most impassable. No one ever attempts it then. Even the Indians refuse to try it and the only ones I ever heard of going through are the mail-carriers, and several years ago two of them were lost. They were probably overcome by the driving snow on the summit and frozen to death. No one ever heard of either of them after ward ; but in the springtime, after the winter storms have abated and the snow has ceased to fall and has become hard, a trip over the summit is nothing. By leaving Sheep Camp early in the morn ing—s *or 6 o'clock— with the weather in your favor, the summit ought to be reached by noon and the head of Lake Lindeman by night. It is but a single day's journey, and not a particularly hard one at that. Many women and children have gone over that route and I never heard of an accident except the one just mentioned. "The idea seems to be prevalent that you must build your boat as soon as you get over the 'divide,' : either at Lake Map of the Lower Klondyke, Showing the Extent of the Location of Claims on the Several Creeks and the Principal Discovery Claims* This map was made for The Call by a careful platting of data and sketches ob tained from several parties lately returned from the Klondyke who own claims on the various creeks and are generally familiar with the whole region and specially in formed by actual observation extending over some eight months as to the principal features of the streams on which their own claims are located and those near to it. The general direction and larger bends of the several creeks are all that can be given on a map of this size until a survey of the whole region embracing the several creeks is made. This has not yet been done, and probably will not bo done for some time to come, as the small force of Canadian officials on duty in that part of the Yu kon country are fully employed in the wort of registering and fixing the boundaries of mining claims in the flats along the streams, and have little time tp devote to a general survey for the purpose of determining in exact detail the direction and nu merous small windings of the various streams and their relation as to distance and direction to each other, with the positions and heights of the hills and mountains, which cover the whole country, except the narrow strips of low ground which border the creeks. It is said, however, that an additional force of surveyors will be sent up by the Canadian Government during the present season, and a complete survey of the whole country drained by the Klondyke and Indian rivers and their various branches, as far as may be practicable and necessary, will be made. The results of their work will doubtless be given to the public from time to time as it progresses, beginning next season, after they have had the time to make a fair start. Lindeman or Lake Bennett. If I _ were going to make the trip I should do nothing of the kind. By leaving San Francisco in early February, not later than the middle of the month, yon can in ail probability get over the 'divide' without trouble early in March. At that time of the year the lakes and streams are nearly all frozen, and a person can get as far as the foot of Lake Lebarge fore the ice begins to break up. lt is much easier to travel over the ice than through the lakes in a boat, bo sides you can go much faster, for in many place, you can stick up a sail on your sled and go skimming over the surface at a very rapid speed. 1 knew of one party which got as far as Fort Selkirk in that manner before the ice broke. At any rate I would go as far as I could in that way, and then I would build my boat. It does not require an expert boat-builder to do this, but it was about the hardest work I did on the whole trip. "You can't scoop a canoe out of a big log as the Indians do, because a white man, without he has had years of experi ence in that sort of thing, would tip a canoe over the moment be, got. into it, and if he didn't do that he would fall out at the first rapids he struck. The only way 'o do is to go out on the bank of.the stream or lake and select a fir .tree large enough to give lumber the desired size. You will- not get very far from the water, because. the undergrowth is so thies in most places that a dog can't get through. And I want to say right here that this talk about footing it all tne way in is absurd. You .must go in a boat or on the ice. The timber is so heavy and the un dergrowth so rank that a man couldn't walk from Lake Lindeman to Sixty Mile in a hundred years. Boat-building is a necessity. After you'vo cut down your tree, trimmed off the branches and sawed the trunk into the length you want your boards, then you've got to build a sort of roll-way and get the tree up off the ground four or five feet, so as to be able to saw it. Then you have about a week's hard labor whip-sawing the lumber our. There should be three men to do this — two on top of the log and one underneath. Of course the timber is green, and after every half-dozen pulls at, the saw you've got to stop and drive a. wedge to keep the saw from getting stuck. •. / . "The. boat should be built as strong as it can be made, and the bottom should be extra thick. . If it is not, the first bowlder you strike will in all probability knock a hole it and dump you and your load into the river, from which you will be very lucky to escape with your life. As has been said before, it is very foolish for a man to go there in search of work. He should be prepared either to buy a claim or to go out and locate one. As every thing near Dawson has undoubtedly been located before now, the prospector must go up some of the numerous streams to find a new one. The heavy growth of timber and brush precludes the possibility of him going by land. He must go up along the creek., and these are generally so shallow ana rapid that he must either pole or pull his boat every loot of the way. Where it is possible, one man will get out on the bank aud pull the craft along by a rope, while the other keeps it Irom bumping against the banks. If this cannot be done, then both must eet in and pole, which is very hard and hazardous work. Many provisions cannot be trans ported in this way, and beiore you have fairly got to work on your claim you are out of food. They say wages are $15 per day. When I left there were 150 men on Birch Creek willing to go to work for $2 50 per day, or any price they could get, and this was true all along the river. "I don't see why wages should . increase so much, as there were then enough men in that part of Alaska to work all the diggings in the Klondyke district. Then, too, : supposing man could get steady THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, MONDAY, JULY 26, 1897. work, which is out of the question, he would have to be made of cast iron to work very long at a time in such a place. They generally work a few days and then give somebody else a chance while they recup erate. Once arrived at your destination there is no necessity of suffering severely from the cold, though it is very cold in the winter. Timber is abundant, and with a thick log shack and plenty of firewood one can easily keep from freezing." Mr. Brownlie yesterday received a letter from his brother at Dawson, who has been in tbe Yukon country for four years. He says he has -just refused $30,000 for his claim, and says that on the day he wrote he was baking bread. After properly kneading the dough he turned around to grease his bread pans, and when he again touched the dough it was frozen stiff. The picture of Chilcoot Pass which ap pears in this issue was taken at a point about four mil. above Sheep Camp, in a little hollow on the mountainside, and shows Mr. Brownlie's party and a party which they met at Sheep Camp beginning tbe last ascent to the summit. "One would think, said Mr. Brownlie, "mosquitoes would have a hard time in Alaska, but I never saw so many any where in the world as there are there -in the summer. New Jersey mosquitoes are pigmies- as compared with the Yukon species, and they make life a burden. I thins a great many people are making a mistake in their clothing outfit. One should take as little as possible, as he will need all his strength to carry the neces sary provisions and himself over the "divide.'' What he needs are skins anu furs, and they can generally be bought to much better advantage in Juneau than anywhere else. When you are out in the snow and ice woolens and blankets will do you little good. A man should live as much like the Indians as possible. The best protection against the cold is a bag made of skin, thoroughly oiled, large enough to hold a man. "A man can get into such a bag and draw it tightly about his heck, having his head covered with furs, and he can pass a fairly comfortable night half buried in the snow. With all that is said against it I would much rather make the trio over the "divide" than the long, tedious one by way of St. Michaels. In my opinion there is only one really dangerous place in the whole trip and that is at White Horse rapids. That is an extremely gerous place, but 1 believe there is a trail around them now, so that this part of the journey can be made on foot; Of the other rapids Five Finger and RinK rapids are perhaps the most dangerous, but they are not bad. The Indians shoot them right along. and think nothing of it. I may go back in the spring and with a party of congenial companions consider it a fine trip. But this only applies to men who are well supplied with money. A poor man might as well commit suicide as ogo." TREADWELLS GONE.

As a rule, the later claims located on the main streams are numbered con secutively from No. 1 up, above and below. The "Discovery" and t***ose on the branches are numbered from the mouth thereof up toward the head, as on Bonanza, where "Discovery Claim" lies between the mouth of Adam* and the mouth of El Do rado Creek. The count is made from it down toward the mouth and up toward the head, while on Adams, El Dorado and other branches the counting begins with No. 1, at the month, and runs up each individual stream in order. , The map shows all the larger streams on which prospect and locations had been made up to the time tbe last steamer down the river left Dawson, and tbe extent of such locations.

A boy arrived at Juneau recently from Finland to join his father, having trav eled all the way with a card tied to his coat telling who fie was and where he was going. ESPS-TO One Juneau outfitter has been selling a ton of bacon a day. A returned miner says that when he went up the Yukon two years ago about the first thing he noticed when he landed at Circle City was an Indian boy whistling "Ta-ra-ra- boom-de-ay." A dirty, thieving Indian cur assays vastly higher in the Yukon country than the noble, high-born hounds that some tend erfeet are taking for sledging. The civilized doc is a tenderfoot himself — can't stand the hardships, can't pull as much, and besides he can't rustle his own sup plies in other people's outfits and cabins. It is said that Andree really started for the Klondyue when he took the north pole route. . HUNDREDS SAIL AWAY FOR DYEA Continued from First rage. backbone of the Alaskan mountains and went over in the British territory. I went down through what the world well knows as Circle City, Fort Cudahy, the Klon dyke region, to the site of Fort Reliance. I camped for twenty-four hours on the ledges above what I know well now was Bonanza Creek. Two of my Indians came in with furs at 10 o'clock at night, and I traded for them. Then, as it was still light, I walked down to the end of the creek and picked up a nut-get, which hud gold in it. I looked around for more, but, not finding any, I put the stone in my pouch and did not think much more of it. At Sitka I showed it to an old miner, who offered me $75 lor it. I took him up quick, but would not tell him where I found it. I went up the Yukon In 1881 and tried to locate my creek again, but failed. "Clarence Berry of Fresno, Cal., went up the river In the year 1896 and I sup pose located near Klondyke and Bonanza creeks. He and Frank Phiscator of Michigan were among the discoverers, but I have always claimed; that I picked up the first nugget on Bonanza Creek. But from my observations uo there 1 am convinced that the mountains over on the American side of the ; line are the real backbone and that all the creeks and tributaries of the Yukon River are Xull of gold. .They are the real I parent of the American gold streak that simmers down through California.

PORTLAND, Or., July 25.— Charles Mc- Donell, employed in the First National Bank, has received an interesting letter from Percival Nash, who left here some weeks ago for the Yukon gold fields. The letter was written from Lake Linderman June 2, and was delayed in its delivery. "We have sold some of our goods on the road," writes he, "tobacco for $2 a pound and Piper Heidsieck for $2 50; cigars cost ing $25 per thousand for $85. Eggs sell here at $1 50 a dozen ; beef, when you can get it, at 50 cents a pound. Yukon prices range here. "Murray Eads (formerly with Snell, Heitshu & Woodward) has got here at last. We have been hearing from him all along the trail. He has about four days' more packing to do. Yesterday he nar rowly escaped being killed. He fell dojvn a steep bill with a pound pack on his hack, striking on his head. He was knocked cold, and Eskridge .found him lying on the trail. "We hired two dog teams about a month ago on shares and freighted our own stuff down from the summit, and my brother Dcs made quite a pile besides. The season has been so abnormally early that the trail over ihe little lakes this side of the summit has been on the verge of going for two weeks past. It is impassable for horses, and as there are only two dog teams working besides our own, we had almost a monopoly, freight "charges being 4 cents a pound from the foot of the sum mit on this side to the head of Linderman Canyon, two and a half miles from here. "In one trip with a sinirie dog-team Dcs made $63. All the work is done at night, as the snow gets so rotten and soft in the daytime that it is impossible to haul the loads even with dogs. -'*"*."'

TRADE REVIVAL IN SOUTHERN STATES Good Effects of the New Tariff Law Felt Already. Louisiana's Sugar - Planters Rejoicing Over Their .b Prospects. Heavy Orders Placed for Improved Machinery, Mules, Wagons ' and Plows. NEW ORLEANS, La., July 25.— The new tariff law is the most favorable to Louisiana of any ever adopted, and it is conceded that it will give a great impetus to all the chief industries of the State. On this point there is no difference of opinion. Even the most extreme free traders admit that the tariff bill will help Louisiana's chief industries, particularly sugar, rice and lumber, however it may operate elsewhere. The passage of the bill will give a great impetus to agriculture and trade. Busi ness has been unusually dull in Louisiana throughout the summer, due to the high water and the uncertainty about the tar iff. Farmers held back spring orders un til they felt sure there would be no over flow, and consequently the summer trade of New Orleans has been very poor this year. In the last few weeks, however, there has been a marked improvement. Sugar planters, feeling sure of the pas sate of some bill that would increase the duty on sugar, began putting in orders for machinery and agricultural imple ments, and, as the sugar schedule encour ages the production of high-grade sugar, they will use heavier, improved ruachin- cry. Orders placed with New Orleans foun dries will aggregate $3,000,000 to $5,000,000. There have also been heavy orders for mules, wagons and plows, which have stimulated these several lines of business. Louisiana will raise 750,000,000 pounds of sugar this year; so the sugar section of the tariff bill is worth $16,000,000 in in creased duty on sugar and molasses. A largo part of this goes not only to the planters and raisers, but to railroads, foundries, machine men and coopers, and makes itself felt in many ways. The full benefit of the new law will not be felt until October, when tb.3 sugar crop comes in. For the first time since early spring bank clearances show an improve ment over the corresponding period of 1896. . A movement is afoot to give a public non-partisan reception to Senator Mc- Enemy on his return, ai a tribute to his aid in legislation so favorable to Louis iana. NEW LIFE J.\ KESTUCKT. Wonderful Change « nines Veer ths Spirit of the Farmer. LOUISVILLE, Ky., July 25.-A won derful change has come over the spirits of Kentucky farmers within the last three months. A remarkable rise in the price of leaf tobacco was the first significant change in the long era of depression. This began to develop in April and by the time the rise had culminated, about the middle of June, prices had advanced on every grade from 100 to 300 per cent. For the past two years tobacco has sold below the cost of production and its deprecia tion was mainly responsible for the silver sentiment here last fall. The wheat crop has been extraordi narily lar_e and the finest quality ever known. The State Agricultural Com missioner estimates that the yield will be double that of last year and the surplus three times as great. Potatoes are being sold at $1 80 a barrel, against 40 to 60 cents last year, and other garden staples areas high, while the crop* nave been so iarge that the shipments from Louisville are 75 per cent greater than last year. "..'.".' It is now the season for selling fat cattle, and as they bring high prices hard times are leaving Kentucky. Dealers in agri cultural implements say their trade is opening magnificently. Mr. Lewis,: head of one of the largest houses here, says he has sold five times as many wagons in the last six weeks as he did during the same period last year. Louisville is the chief center for jeans cloth manufacturing. At this time last year all the factories were clased. They are now all running, some on extra time, while prices have been advancing. GOOD HUES HAVE BEGUX. Cheerful Tieses of Prominent Public 3; en at Washington. NEW YORK, N. V.. July 25.— 1n a tele gram to the Press Comptroller of the Currency Eccles says that private advices from "bankers all over the country con vince him that the tariff bill's passage assures finance and trade of a firm basis for renewed activity. Signs of prosperity, he says, are already manifested every where, the best evidences of improvement beinp in the South and West A Washington correspondent of the same pap.r quotes the Secretary of Agriculture as saying: "From the very home of Pop ulism are coming, the most sanguine re ports. The Populist Senators wanted a bounty on beet svgar 1 for their constitu encies, but as they did not want 'other portions of the country to have any pro tection they re.'used to vote for the tariff bill. When 1 came into office I found that the department had procured 1000 pounds of sugar-beet, with which the chemist of the department was experimenting. "Immediately I obtained four tons, and now practical experiments by farmers are being carried on at twenty-two agricult ural stations. In August I shall make a tour of these stations. Sugar-beet thrives well in land which has no rainfall ; it will redeem much land in New Mexico, Wyo ming and other States, and it is my belief that it will also turn thousands of voters away from Populism. Our farmers will soon be too -busy prospering to listen to the talk o f agitators. Bryan's own State will profit greatly by this new industry, which Kepublican legislation has estab lished, and which means employment of more farm labor in Nebraska and conse quently an increased market for the wares of the factory and store. "Already things are brightening up in California as a result of protection to the California fruit-raiser against his Mediter ranean rival who pays but a few cents a day to his ignorant, miserable workmen. California is profited also by the sugar beet tariff. With this in prospect, and her wheat going to Brazil, it is not surprising that Democracy is at a low ebb in Califor nia." . f.f Senator Hanna said: "Prosperity has come hand in hand with protection. • As a ; businessman with wide connections, I** know that business is reviving, just as it , was bound to do as soon as the country had an administration ot stability and *a* | patriotic tariff law. The business world' is- j going ahead with confidence.
