Yesterday was a urc it day in the history of Alaska, British Columbia and the Northwest Territory, the greitest mineral producing country that exists on the face of the earth. A little more than one year ago a com pany began what was then considered an impossible task, that of c nstructing a railroad from Skagway to the summit of White Pass. But where energy an'l money combine, defeat Is unknown. Work was constantly carried on and neyer for one moment was there any flagging. Through a wild and rocky countrv where formerly the mountain goat dared not venture, a roaJ ted was constiucted, steel rails were laid over which thundered the iron horse drawing in his wake material for further construction. Contrary totheexpectations of the most sanguine the road was com pleted to the summit tar in advance of con tract time, tli.i. ks to that indefatigable, ever awake and alert man, V. J. Heney. But construction Jid not stop at the sum mit. Twenty-two miles further east were thr headwaters ot Yukon navigation, the threshold to the great gold producing fields ot the interior. This was the destination, and to this point was construction contin UCJ Yesterday the road was completed to Bennett, malting it possible for travelers from anv part ot the United States to reach Dawson City on one continuous journey on rail and w .ter where all the comforts of life may b; enjoyed; no walk ing, no packing of outfits on backs of men and beasts, and with no delay. ? It was an enthusiastic party that left this dtv veslrr.l iv morning fur U. nnrtt to witness the driving ol the last spike that bound with bauds of steel the silt waters of Lvnn Canal to the fresh waters where ply the steamers ol the mighty Yukon. The start was made at 8 o'clock in the morning, the following persons being aboard the train: H. M. McGregor, C. P. R. R.. Pills bury & Cleveland, photogra, hers; (Japt. Win. Moore and daughter, Mrs. A. Miles Taylor; C C. Runner, Percv H. Peele, collector of customs; Arthur Junes, Can adian customs insp ctor; Nev. J. A. Sin clair. Dr. and Mrs. I. H. Moore, Dr. M. F. Hall, Dr. Whiting, F. M. Bush. if. A. Seeley, R. C. Smith, A\r. and Mrs. A. L. Berdoe, J. A. Paine, Red Line Transporta tion Co.; F. I . Keelar. John Stanley, C. t. Cole, Miss A. L, Burke, C. h. Hawkins and wife. J. T. Havne, L. H. Cirey, F. H. Whiting. G. W. DeSucc i. W. L Wil son, Agent Busbv. At tlie suininn .1 stop 01 some lengin was made fur the purpose of regaling the guests with luncheon and other refresh ments. From the Summit on to Bennett the trip was made on tlat cars, the new road not being sufficiently ballasted to jus tify the running of the regular passenger coaches It was 1 o'clock when Bennett was reached, the last several hundred yards of track being laid just in advance of the train. When the last rail was in place the honor of driv ng the last spike was dele gated to Mrs. Hawkins, wife of the chief engineer and general superintendent of the road, Mr. E. C. Hawkins, although Mr. Hawkins, himself. Prank Walter*, w lik ing boss; Captain Jarvis, of the N. W P., and Contractor M. J. Henev each hit it a lick for luck. At the time of the cere mony of drivi.ig the spike Contractor Henev, als> president of the Red Star Transportation l.ine, had all his teams, comprising 150 horses, lined up in proces sion, the entire lake tleet of steamers in port blew their whistles and twenty -one earth quaking blasts were shot where a mountain side was being removed for a depot site. Taken as a whole, it was the most thrilling and eventful scene ever wit nessed north of Puget Sou d. Scarcely had the echoes of the great tur mult subsided when Captain McGregor of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company, in stentorian tones proposed three cheers for the White Pass and Yukon Route The cheers, with a tiger, were given in a way that caused the . osoin of Like Ben nett to heave an inch or more. Cheers wer, also given for General Superintend ent H aw kins, Contractor Henev and other of the official of the company. Then came the crowning event of the day in the form of a banquet at C>n tractor Henev 's mess house v here an ele gant repast was served. Champagne flowed freely, everybody was toasted and the affair in its entirtv was such as only Mr. Heney could conceive and successfully carry out. It was a great day for the people of Bennett. The entire town was arrayed in Its Sunday apparel and, aided by three hundred men who had In the morning ar rived from Dawson and who were jubilant at the thought of getting a railroad ride to Skagway, nothing was done amiss to make the occasion a brilliant one In that ball wick's history. At six o'clock the train started on the return trip, another stop being made at the summit where another sumptuous repast In the railroad eitlng house was enjoyed. (One member of the party said last night, "We ate every two hours yesterday, and I never enjoyed grub more In my life.") From the summit the return to Skagwav was made In the coaches, and when at I ? o'clock last night the tr^in pulled Into Skagwav with four coaches and the plat forms crowded it looked like a wav do An South party of excuralonlst* returning from a moonlight, watermelon picnic. All the railroad camps between Skagwav nd Bennett were in holiday attire in honor of the occasion, and in order that the hun dreds >f employees of the company mitfht Inwardlv feel In harmony with outward display, Contractor Heney distributed thirty kegs of beer along the line yester day morning. Thus ended a Ja\ the events of which will forever emblazon a page in Alaska's ' history. We are too magmnimous to say "Skagwav's history." The trails on which men have toiled, and in too many instances died, are now but a memory. They will be known only in the great vol- ' ume of historv which depicts the hitter and the sweets of life as found in thr broad, white north. The White Pass & Yukon koute is completed to Bennett, leaving Skagwav the one and only gateway to the wetllh laden v des of thr interior. All hoinr and all hail to Mr. Hawkins and his associates tor the great fe.it they have accomplished In the construction and successful completion ot Alaska's only railroad 01 1 una 11 w ?

His eyes were v> *ide open and wide-looking that little but the whites of them was visible. All file clothes he had on were a tattered shirt and boo is so worn that they scarcely clung to his fee'. His legs were naked. He was too fe ?' lc to help himself, " '< ome here to me! Come here! Help!' he hoarsely gasjied. "Young Edgren became afraid and backed awav.
