GE S INTO TOUGH HOTEL. “S< attb* was reached !!i t *• gray of a nds> afternoon. A tunusand hack men, as 1 estimated the number, Were bellowing at the edge «>f the station platform. I was confused and, net knowing what to do, waited until all the ha'ks had gone but one. ‘This way, mptain.’ veil'd the driver, •for the St. ( aides Hotel/ That particular nano was highly respected in t •• South.

I not* d at a glance, was a villainous hiking t - taldishincut. but Seattle, I argu* d, was a new town and, • inters could not expect all the refinements of civ ilisation. 1 walk'd between male immigrants sleeping <>n the floor and female im migrants nursing their haldes, also on the floor, and duly wrote my nano in the register. Then I had a bite of supper. I have eaten better meals ev en on th* trails of Alaska. But T was a sportsman and so 1 cut my food into cartridges and swallowed them v. 1th out chewii Vt >edtim< a man was complaining to the ehrk that he had been robb< d that afternoon whih sleeping. “‘Den 's a sign in e\ ery room/ tla clerk shout'd, ‘denyin’ all responsi bility. You o'rter have left your money wid me.’ “I look'd at tlie clerk and decided to be the custodian of my own valu ables, at least for the time being. A disreputable-looking boy showed me upstairs and into a smallish room con taining two beds and a tal.de, on which a candle was burning. There was a man in one of the beds. He pretend ed to be asleep, but I saw him looking at me through a tunnel he had made of the clothing around his head. ‘He’s a robber,’ I said to myself. "After undressing I put a six shooter under the pillows with con siderable ostentation. I did not ex tinguish the candle. Once in bed, lying with my face toward the rob ber. I broke out in a cold sweat at the thought that I might fall asleep before morning. The robber had his eyes closed, but I knew he was playing ’possum. “Thus the hours dragged until the candle went out, after which the sit uation seemed more dangerous than ever. I lay with my hand on the re volver. straining my eyes and ears for any suspicious movements on the part of the robber. T heard his bed squeak just before daylight and cock ed my pistol. MEETS THE ROBBER. "Hut lie remained on his own reser- ] vatjon and by and by I realized that ! he was dressing. He left the room very softly. ‘He has gone,’ I re marked to myself, after re-enforce ments.’ Therefore, I got up. Immi grants were still on the floor of the office. The clerk directed me to the barroom. After such a night I thought I required a stimulant. A man had his foot on the brass rail and had orderd something. *I>rink a little buttermilk with me,’ I said, wanting to illustrate my sociability. " ‘You hit the target at the first crack,’ the stranger replied. He turned and I saw that lie was a youngster like myself. "‘And I need a tonic,’ he went on to say. ’I haven’t closed my eyes since going to bed last night. I am a stranger here, and don't under stand the inhabitants. Heaven pity Seattle if this is the best hotel in town.’ “‘Who said it was the best?’ roared the barkeeper. "‘There were two beds in my room,’ the young fellow continued, ignoring the barkeeper’s question. ‘I was doz ing when a tnan came in and, pulling a gun a mile long from his valise, got into bed with it. So I lay awake watching and waiting to be murdered any minute.’ " ‘My friend,’ I said, 'I am that man and I apologize. I am as green as grass and thought you were a robber.’ "We found a better hotel and went elk shooting together. On returning to Seattle, I sat down and seriously -! • Litn t> look into tin future 1 got .11 t * boom literature printed about ‘tl.* 1’uget Sound region, studied it car«-full>. bal.tnnd on* place against ,»notii» r an«i then bought the very jw«.r>t pieces of property in all that , t ountry. In six months I hadn't a 1 dollar DRIVEN TO ALASKA BT PANIC. A southern lawyer, Judge August M Moore, took me into his office and into his home and paid me a salary. 1 would clerk for him during the day ..n! •• would quiz, me at night in is 1 i' i ary and talk to me about pub lic questions. Moreover, he made me is partner after 1 had passed the ; nr examination and was licensed to ; rat tiff We moved to Mt.

'Tiif panic of 1893 didn't reach the laciiic vast until 1S1*6 and then it it us all at once. Money ceased to • irculate. Lumber men had difficulty u s<lling anything and even then • ach sab* was a losing proposition. I was living at a hotel and was on i cash basis, but couldn't get any cash Money was due me, but it wasn't collectible. Mt. Vernon was ' • ntirely too dead for a person of my j temperament So 1 gave my law li- j brary to the presiding judge of the I lisirict. my office furniture to a young lawyer who had just moved to town, ami my account books and promissory notes to the flames an 1 went to Seattle. •That was in 1S97. The big rush to Alaska started the next year. J bought a lot of junk anti left Seattle in the steerage, but I had a good supply of food, guns, ammunition, blankets, and mining tools. There would be something doing in the way '>!' g- Id as an incident, but law was to be my regular business. I met two young men in the vessel going up. We agreed to remain together iit i 1 further notice. "It was thirty miles front skagway to Lake Bennett. We packed our - applies, weighing* three tons and a half, the entire distance. It was ter ribly hard work. We would put up t tent and a second tent half a mile 'urther on. Then we would bring up • ;r supplies, each man carrying 100 own Is at a time. October was upon ;s and a fierce storm was likely to how up any moment. That is the r • ason we always pitched two tents on the trail. HAD ONLY TEN CENTS LEFT. At Lake Bennett we made a boat. Th»Te was a water route thence on •vard to Lawson. None of us had .r done any research work with a ripsaw. Lumber had to be cut for the boat. One of my companions saw 1 away for a day or two and then • •pened negotiations for the sale of his • •;it fit. Jim Lashua and I bought it. The purchase reduced my money in hand to 10 cents; Jim, however, had -■ \.-ral dollars. The boat was twenty t ree f.-et long. Good headway was made through the lakes by using a • nt fly for a sail. "<>ne night we stopped just at the ciinyon leading to White Horse Ra ■dds. We meant to keep on for a while, but a sudden impulse caused s to tie up to the bank. If we bad kept on I shouldn't now be telling you this story. The next morning we aw the danger we had escaped. Oth r boats were made fast to tHe banks and men were unloading them so as to carry boats and supplies over the mountains to the river beyond White Horse rapids. "Jim and I walked to the canyon. The river narrowed to 100 feet and shot between two high walls of rock like an express train. I thought we could go through if we were to hit the channel fairly in the center. Then we looked at the rapids and falls two • i r three miles farther on. Neither of us said a word. On the way back to the boat Jim asked? ‘What lo you think of the proposition?’ “ ‘I shall pack no more goods,' I answered. “ ‘That's my feeling,' Jim respond ed. "We climbed into the boat and cast off. The canyon was negotiated safely, though we went with the speed of a bullet. So far so good, but the worst was yet to come. Jim sat well forward, facing the bow, and steadying the boat with a pair of oars twelve feet long. T, braced be tween bags of flour, steered the boat with another heavy oar. So we ap proached the rapids, going swiftly with t He boiling currents. The men began running along the bank, wav ing their hats wildly and yelling. LOOKED DEATH IN THE FACE “ ‘Pull in, you blankety blank fools! You are near White Horse rapids!’ they shouted. ‘W-h-o-s-e h-o-r-s-e?’ Tim bellowed, making a megaphone of his hands. “‘It ain’t a horse but a rapids. Pull in, you blankety-blank Idiots, or you will be dashed to pieces! shrieked the men in angry warning. “ ‘W-h-a-t k-i-n-d of a h-o-r-s-e?’ Tim roared through his improvised speaking trumphet. “The m<-n continued to shout, but we sailed on seemingly determined to commit suicide. The foam began to fly and was so thick that I could not see the bow of the boat. Jim would cry back: ‘A little to the left: i little to the right; hard to the left; hard to the right,’ and I, blind ‘*<1 by the spray, would throw my |oar back and forth accordingly. We fairly flew over the water, dipping every moment like a kingfisher after his dinner. “The boat swept to the rim of the rapids. For an instant it paused, shook itself as thought it were a dog coming out of the water, and then took the seven-foot idunge as grace fully as a professional diver. My oar broke ir the middle. But the trie! j had been done and we rowed ashore and made fast to a tree. “The men who had called us fools and idiots extended their congratula tions. We brought three more boats down that day, getting $50 for each performance. I now had $75.10 in money, and I spent all of it but the original dime for furs at the mouth of the Stewart river, where there was a big encampment of Indians. Moose, the Indians said, could be found on the watershed of the Arctic Circle. The mines, we argued, would wait, but the moose wouldn't We crossed the river, and built a cabin, notching the logs, and putting moss between them. Then we start*-.1 after moose. I "In the meantime the river had b» * n closed bv h • for the winter The cabin was comfortable, but I want*! ! to be on about rnv business. We cached our supplies, and. with a sled load of provisions, set out for Daw j son, which was 100 miles distant. The Journ»y was made in two days lover the frozen river. I had 10 cents, hut couldn’t spend it Candles were $1 apiece, flour was $100 a sack. GETS 830 A CORD TOR WOOD. Two m* n In Dawson owned claims rear the mouth of the Stewart river. They gave us pound for pound and item for item according to the In ventory of our supplies at the cabin Freightage was tints saved to them and to us. Jim and I had plenty to • at and enough to wear, but no cur Irency. I thought I would look around and find a mine. Jim said he would turn butcher and shoot moose for $! a pound. So we parted. I next formed a conjunction with Charley Green of Pittsburg. He was a fine young fellow, but didn’t have any ready money, either. ITenchy the , Devil, said he would give us $10 a cord for wood. Miners used a great <l*al of wood for thawing the ground. Fharb-y and 1 rented an old cabin. A bench near the top of the mountain j was covered with trees killed by a j fire. Tiie trail to the bench was J crooked in one spot, but otherwise good. We had a strong sled and two sharp axes. After chopping down a dozen long poles we tied the butts to the sled, which we hauled to the edge of the trail. Charley took hold of th»* tongue of the sled. ‘You had better stay behind.’ lie said, ‘and help hold back the load.’ • ’That won't be necessary,’ I re plied ‘I’ll stay on the bench and cut another cord of wood.’ •1 helped drag the sled to the trail and teeter it over. And away it went. Charley dug his heels into the ice loaned backward as far as he could, turned ms legs in ami turnon mem out, but the sled kept going faster and faster. The trail was narrow and he couldn't jump aside, hut had to stay where lie was or he run over. Half way down the mountain the trail turn- 1 sharply to the h-ft. Chari- y ami the sled hit the curve at forty miles an hour. The whole outfit went into a huge snowbank. CHARLEY NEVER SAID A WORD "Then I stopped laughing. I feared Charley ha-1 been killed. Anyway he was out of sight and I was sure something terrible ha-1 happened. Pres ently, however, I saw a slight move ment in the snow. The sled 1 thought was backing up. Hut it was Charley. He crawled out on his hands and knees, blowing like a whale. Aft er he got on his feet he looked up the mountain and saw me. 1 had re sum'd laughing. lie shook the snow out of his sleeves and silently walked down the trail. I waited awhile and then followed him. "When I arrived at the cabin he was frying leans and looking mad as thunder. He didn't speak to me, and so I sat on my bunk, filled my pipe and began to smoke. After the beans were fried, Charley slammed them on the table and sat down to eat. I sat down, too, hut didn’t say n word. Dinner over, Charley went to his bunk and lighted his pipe. I went to my bunk and lighted my pipe. He didn't vant t<» talk and I felt reluctant about starting a conversation. Thus we sat in silence. Finishing his smoke in the course of half and hour, Charley stood up, stretched himself and said: ‘Well, it’s time to go hack to the bench. It’s your turn to bring down the next load.’ "We soon learned how to get the wood down without accident, and each of us made $30 a day at the business. I found some mines and sold one of them for $15,000. At the end of two years I started for Nome, 2200 miles distant, for a dredge with which to do mining at Dawson on a large scale. Once in Nome, I opened a law office and stayed there. Congress had passed a law respecting Alaska and a swarm of professional receivers, bonds men and plunderers came to Nome, ac companied by lawyers. A CELEBRATED MINING CASE. "A beach at Nome for twenty miles up and down was being worked by individual miners. They could dig the gold out of their little claims and then go down tlie line and take up others. The gang that came in tried to run them out of the country. Three companies of United States sol diers were compelled, under the law, i to assist the plunderers. Property rights, you understand, had to he protected, and the plunderers said they owned everything. "The miners consulted me. I told them to keep at work and to obey without objection the orders of the soldiers. They followed my instruc tions, and 500 of them were arrested and confined at the barracks. Then 1 combed the saloons and asked 250 more of them to surrender. The Im prisoned miners had to he fed, you see, and the soldiers were compelled to share their blankets with them at night. "My purpose was to have the army oost eaten out of its limited supply of rations. An opportunity was given the miners to escape, but they stuck to the barracks. Ultimately my scheme having worked satisfactorily, they re turned to the beach and operated their •laims unmolested. "I helped to establish civil govern ment in Nome, and became prosecut ing attorney of the new city. In the autumn of 1001, I left Alaska, as T thought, temporarily. I meant to spend the winter in California. There was a gold rush to Nevada. I went along, being curious to see the country. "Tonopah looked all right to me. I am now one of its oldest inhabitants.” GOOD LISTENER GETS $2,000 PARIS, Dec. 13.—According to the j Gaulois, a London journalist has been bequeathed $2,000 by his great-uncle, | a retired colonel, $20 for each of 100 occasions on which lie listened, always with great courtesy, and interest, to the old soldier's story of a battle.

RELIGION IS NOT CIOl ION CHINA XKW YORK.— The American board of foreign missions is not alarmed by the effort to make Confucianism the state religion of China, according ( to a statement today by the Rev. Or. j Woodruff llalsey, secretary of the home department. Cable dispatches yesterday from l’eking told of an anti-Confucianism meeting, at which a league was formed to oppose the adoption of a state religion by the republic. “We are opposing the move for the good of China herself, rather than because we believe it hampers the work of our missionaries there," Dr. Halsey said. “As a matter of fact we do not believe it will hamper their work. It would be a backward step, however, in the progress of China, for it would permit the shrewd and unscrupulous to mix religion with business and politics. It would tgnd to relegate China to the plane of Mexico. “Two years ago an attempt was made to make Christianity the state relii inn. We opposed that effort just as vigorously as we are opposing the present effort on behalf of Confu cianism. 1 • r-c; i.!, mt Yuan Slii Kai is the best possible man for the presi dency of China, and he recently said to 11. II. Lowrie, president of Un Peking university: "l am not a Chris tian; I am a follower of Confucian ists, but only Christian ethics can save China. Our morality is not sufficient for the crisis.’ “The tendency to establish a stat'1 j religion is, of course, indicative of ;• I erisis in religious matters in China ilit it will be a erisis in tin- intern:* 1 ! affairs of the republic only an 1 \\ not be a crisis in our work.
