H. Wheeler and Thomas Milton were
the arrivals from Dawson ev.ning before
Ust. They left there November 23d. Mil
ton, who is a St. Paul business man. said
at the Mondamin vesterdav:
"We met 200 men mushing in who said
thev were bound for Nome. Thev were
scattered all along the route, the greater
number of them being met toward this
end of our journev. Not more than ten
per cent of them had dog teams. In other
cases the men pushed and pulled sleds
along. usu<llv one man ahead with a rope
jud one behind pu-hing. We spoke only
a moment to them as we passed, and when
we cried out. saying: 'Are you for Nome?'
or 'Bound for Nome, are vou not?' the an
swer almost always wis 'Yes,' or 'You
bet.'
"There are probably 200 scows block
aded along the river. Fifty-six are at
Sc. w island, near Stewart, alone, and takt
everv Inch of landing space about the little
island. At Thistle and Tulare we saw

BABCOCK'S TROUBLES
Hamlin <.n r in it d*? Partner Had
a Hard I. air Trip.
Burton Babcock, mining partner ol Ham
lin Garland the well-kkown author,
writes that he had a prettv lone trip to
Dawson. He left Bennett, with the six
barges towed by the tug Lindeman sent .
out from there on October nth by Spencer
& Seelev, and did not reach Dawson until !
November 14th. The bad time began at .
Windy Arm, where one barge was crush- [
ed and two mm on her narrowlv escaped.
The little steamer sank while going j
through the can von below White Horse,
and Mr. Babcoik and the other men on her
climbed on the roof of the deck house and
held on there as best they c mIJ until one
of the mounted polico came down in a row
bo.it and took them off. The rest of the
barges, much battered and leakv, fin >llv
were caught in the Ice jjm six miles above
Stewart river, and from there the party
pushed 011 with sleds. A Mr. Clark,
with his wife and two children were of ,
the party, and to them the -whole trip
must have been a succession of thrilling
experiences long to be remembered'
I tie steamer Farallon Is expected to ar
rive tomorrow- This will be one day ,
ahead of her scheduled time. Late ad
vices received by Agent D-iutrick sav she
was to have gotten away from the Sound
earlier than at first planned.
