FIFTEEN DAYS ON TRAIL] Patird tinny- on Ihf llond Going In -Llvtrmorr'i ftirnm Med Was u rullurr-l'oiidllloii of Work on Creek*. What an exhllerating enjoyment it must be to drive behind one's own spanking team from Dawson and pull up at your own front door in Skagway before an ad miring crowd ? Talk about your old Eng lish coaching days, with the rumbling coach and the brassy, cracked horn, and a twenty-mile spin through the frosted air, and the gaping group of lazy yokels, wohl That was good enough for the days of Dickens and the Yub.il Bills, and the cheap romance of a few years ago. But wh.it is it to the romance of todav ? for Ala-ka is chockful of romance. No Iron horse will ever wipe out the romance of these mar vellous rides through the frosty air of an Arctic winter, of nearly nine hundred miles, belli id a "prancing" team, half wolves and halt dogs, with a contingency of howling wolves behind you. Yes, half dogs and half wolves. The team that whiled around the comer of Main street Into Holly street yesterday af ternoon, at a brisk pace although there was n? snow on the ground, and followed by a gathering crowd, pulled up in front of Clancy's, was li ilf dog and half wolt. One anim il was actually from a dog d.im and a wild wolf sire, and another frjm one of the half-breeds again brrd to a wild wolf, and in appearance and general char acteristics entirelv wolf. When Captain Bokner was at Circle City the year btfore last he managed 10 secure from an Indian an entire lit er of five wolf cubs, and these were domesticated and have been trained as a dog (earn to be shown at the Paris Exposition next vear. The team that excited such a scurry on Hollv street was George Clancy's home coming. The three other anim.tls are huge huskies. It is probably the finest turnout that ever made the trip from the interior. J. A. Cate?. their prcud pr^prleto' and driver, is a man w ho can now afford to toot his own four-in-hand in the Bois de Boulogne. He is a steamboat owner of Vancouver, and has sold his rich claims in Dawson because, a? lie tersely outs It: "I hive had enough of bacon and beans to last me." He bought the team at Porcu pine, a thousand miles or so beyond Daw son, for Jisoo from a man who was broke. At Dawson he was offered all sorts ot money for thrm. He br aught out with him, in addition to Mr. Clancv, Captain McLane, manager ot the Klondike-Yukon Steamship Company, of which Mr., Domville, the member of parliament, Is president.

The first ot these horses used on the trail to pack reached Dawson three davs before thev left. They met them everyday after that. Any dead horses ? Wfll, ves, he remem I bered seeing one or two.

They could never be built up into useful animals It was useless to attempt to go In with horses. It thev arrived alive thev were worthless. Yes.

He met the Li verm ore steam slod and the Berry p.irtv on Wednesday at Tagish. The sled was all packed up and the party was pushing along with dogs. Such a sled might work on smooth ice, but there was no such ice on the trail, the horses having chopped it up. This shows that the Berrys must have spent some time at Bennett tinkering and experimenting with the ste.im sled, although thev were in such .1 rush to relieve Brother H;nry.

IN BONDED WAREHOUSE Part of Canadian t'uiloma Offi cial* In Connection With llond* i it u Privileges* There are no new developments in the "holJup"at the summit perpetrated by the Canadian officials on an American offi cer last Wednesday when acting as convoy for liquors going to Log Cabin. Cjptain Cirtwright vesterdiv admitted having re ceived Instructions to "stop" all convovs at the summit, but refused to give til source of Ills authority. Deputy Collector Andrews has given orders to put all Canadian liqu ors in the government bonded warehouse that may arrive at this port and will keep them there until he receives an answer to his re port covering the numerous outrages to which the American officers have been subjected at the summit In the last few months. The arbitrary action at the summit in connection with convovs brings another piece of Canadian Joe Martinism to which Ame'icansare subjected, namely their re fusing to extend "To Am;rlcans the sam Poiutirg or cash deposit privilege that is extended to Canadians passing through American te'ritorv. This applies specially to American goods passing tltrongh Cana dian territory to the lower Yukon or below E igleClty. In all such cases the Cana diuns have arbitrarilv demanded and col lec'td Jut v. This is in direct violation to the privil e cts provided bv the circular known as the Canadian regulations relating to bond ing goods of the United States through Canada from anv point in Alaska via Chilkoot or White Pass through to Circle Citv. This law is specific and among other things says that: "If the goods when entered in transitu for exportation, are not delivered to be tor warded bv a bonded carritr or convoy, the duty thereon is to be deposited with the customs officer at Lake Tagishj sub ject to a refund of same at the port of Fort Cudahv when the goods pass outward thereat." This is the gist of the law which Is re ciprocal and is being carried out to the letter by the United States customs offi cials but which the Canadians customs officials insist on violating day in and day out. B. F. Drinkle and P. A. Morris, two miners with goods on their wav to the lower Yukon, were the latest victims of this pettifogging Canadian one-sided system. These two men have made and signed the following statement dated Log Cabin March 15, 1899, covering the facts in their case; "TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN? "This is to certify that we, the under signed. have made application before Col lector Peele to bond our goods trom this point through Canadian territory to For Cudahv. also that if a bond would not be acceptable that we would put the money in his hands to cover the estimated amount of duty, providing It would be refunded to us when our goods a|)9uld have been trans ported through Canadian territory. "Notwithstanding that the law tayt w? have that privilege, the collector in*iste>i that we must pav our duty before p isslng. "B. F. Dlnkie. "P. A. Morris. Cheney's Boston store? Shoes.

The Arctic Brotherhood had to call an other special meeting last night for the Initiation of members, Captain Cart wright, M. J. Henev and others having remained in town specially for this pur pose. The question was where to get a hall, and Mr. Sinclair kindlv lent Victoria hall for the purpose. The gentlemen Initi ated with the many pompous ceremonies of the ritual were; Captain E. C. Cart wright, E. C. Hawkins, M. J. Heney, A. O. Williams, W. C. Robinson, Duncan H. McDonald and J . G. Price. Ciptain Johnston, of the Clipper Line, at the customary banquet following tilt rites, said the brotherhood was doing such a large business that it needed a house of its own, and he then and there offered a building site, which was accepted with hearty cheers and songs. The lot is on Second avenue west, right opposite the railroad depot. There Is plenty of money in the treasury, so building will be begun as soon as the plans can be made.

General Traffic Manager L. H, Gray of the White Pass and Yukon R llroad, now in Seattle, writing under d?te of March 16 regarding the libellous statements and cir culars aent out by the strikers from Skag way to the various working agencies and newspapers in the south says: "The newspapers and the public in the cities down here refuse to take any stock in their malicious statements. In fact it is giving us a wonderful amount of free ad vertising, as it is my experience tha* the public has always refused to take [any stock In stories gotten up by labor agita tors. "The editors of the principal p.xers have written strong editorials in our fivor on this subject and th? result is tluithr people are calling at our various offices congratulating us on taking the stand we nave in the matter. "I will leave for ikagway In about .one week." Hard Trip for Nick Man. A. G. McMichael, who came in on last night's train from the summit, had a hard trip of it out from Dawson. Not because the trail was bad but because he himself was bad, to use the vernacular for sick ness. The doctor at Dawson told him that he had better get out of the country as soon as h* could, and he followed the advice on foot- He said last night; "It took me thirty-five days to get here. Some days I had to make thirty-two miles between stations. Then I wouM have to lay up. I have still l.ooo miles to travel before I shall see the light in the window, but the rest Is a pic-nlc. My home is in Detroit, Mich." Mr. McMichael had been In the Interior just a year and had acquired several good claims. Simmer* Due In Port.

In case of goods being delivered there by mis >ake, will the merchant please take charge of them until he comes for them. The stranger then goes 10 a wholeviler and or ders a big bill of goods, usually jewelry. The go ids are sent. The sharper come* along and takes them away.
