ABOUT BIG ALASKA.
George T. Bush Writes Things Never
Seen in Books About That
Dawson, Y. T., July 8.
Leaving San Francisco the last
week in June I had an uneventful trip
to Medford, Oregon. I went by way
cf the Shasta route which has an ap-
peal for tourists because of the fact
that the railroad crosses over itself
four times through a series of tun-
nels and overhead bridges, and at one
place it is possible to look down and
see four trains, all going the same
Medford is the gateway to Crater
Lake, one of the government national
parks. On account of the heavy snow
fall in this section the park is never
opened until the first of July, and
even then traveling is a laborious
task. The lake is a wonderful natural
freak of nature. It lies 7000 feet
above sea level and is in reality the
crater of an enormous volcano, which
erupted itself extinct generations ago.
It is forty-six miles in diameter, with
precipitous cliffs ranging in depth
from one to two thousand feet. The
water in the lake has been sounded to
a depth of two thousand feet. It is a
deep, cobalt blue, and presents a won-
To reach the rim of the lake I
climbed over and through snow twelve
feet deep for a distance of almost
three miles. This was on June 28th,
before pathways had been shoveled to
the rim of the lake. The regular roads
through the park are all fine state and
Returning to Medford I went by
way of the famous Klamath valley,
which is in reality the dry bed of a
pre-historic lake. In this valley the
soil is three to four feet deep and so
rich that vegetation grows unusually
rank. It is a favorite valley for pas-
turing cattle and I saw herds ranging
into the thousands. The herders pay
for the privilege of grazing their
stock on the basis of the number of
pounds put on. That is, all cattle are
weighed when taken inte the valley,
and weighed again when taken out,
and payment is exacted on the aggre-
gate of the pounds of beef made while
the herds were on the grazing
grounds. In some portions of the val-
ley the soil is so rich in humus that if
set on fire it will burn for days and
weeks, and is really quite hard to ex-
During a day spent in Portland, Or-
egon, I met Ellery Campbell, youngest
son of Frank Campbell, during his life
a well known carpenter and contract-
or of Bellefonte. He holds a very re-
spons:‘ble position in one of the largest
department stores in Portland and
draws down a fine salary. The night
1 was in Portland I attended a boxing | d
match in a natural amphitheatre own-
ed and managed by the Portland Ath-
letic club. Eight thousand people
were in the audience and four heavy-
weight boxing bouts were on the pro-
On July first I left Seattle on a trip
to Alaska. going by rail to Vancouver.
At both Victoria and Vancouver resi-
dents were celebrating Dominion Day,
which is a counterpart of our Fourth
of July. Big parades were held in
both cities and the day was given over
to rejoicing and festivities. At Van-
couver I embarked on the Princess
Charlotte for the four day’s trip to
Skagway. The route of almost one
thousand miles was through the in-
land passages, with its wonderful
scenery. One of the sights was the
Taku glacier, a river of ice fifty miles
in length, a mile wide and one hun-
dred and fifty feet in depth. It is
called a live “glacier because of the
fact that it is continually discharging
icebergs into the Pacific ocean. The:
ice is deep blue in color.
Our first stop was at Alert Bay, an
Alaskan Indian fishing village, inter-
esting because of its exhibit of wood
carving and totem poles. Prince Ru-
pert, the next stop, is the Pacific ter-
minus of the Canadian Northern rail-
way. It is a city much resembling the
Seattle of thirty-five years ago. It is
very hilly, and the streets are cut
right through the hills. It is renown-
ed as a large halibut and salmon ship-
ping port. It has an unusually large
cold storage plant which is packed to
the limit with frozen halibut and sal-
The Canadian gavernment handles
the liquor problem in this city. Bars
are permitted to sell beer only. A
person desiring liquor must pay $2.00
for a permit to buy it, but then can
get as much as he wishes of liquors,
fine wines, rum and cordials. The
quality is excellent but the price is
rather stiff. The rush for wet goods
was not as great as I saw at Montreal
a year ago.
Ketchikan is the first United States
government port after leaving Seat-
tle. It is a lively, bustling place, not-4
withstanding the fact that a portion
of the city is built on stilts and the
streets are constructed of three inch
plank. Ninety-five per cent. of the
buildings are of wood construction and
I naturally thought what food for a
holocaust should a fire ever get a good
start. A fireplug in every square,
plenty of hose and high water pres-
sure is their means of protection. Fish
freezing, salting and shipping is the
principal industry at Ketchikan. As
we passed the town the residents
were making big preparations to cele-
brate the Fourth.
Wrangel was the next stop. It is
a sleepy Alaskan Indian village with
a good exhibition of totem poles.
Shrimp canning and shipping is the
principal industry. It is also the port
for the new gold strike on the Stek-
ine river and Telegraph creek, in Brit-
ish Columbia. Big game hunters
bound for British Columbia also trans-
fer here. fa
We landed at Juneau at nine o’clock
in the evening of the 4th of July. A
big celebration was still in progress
and many intoxicated individuals were
in evidence, principally U. S. soldiers
one leave from the fort near Skag-
way. Gold mining is the principal in-
dustry here, with fishing as a side is-
sue. Some of the largest gold mines
in the world are located near this city.
The ‘famed Treadwell mine has been
closed for some time, being flooded
with water that broke through from
the strait, at which time nineteen
miners were drowned. The town 1s
built on the side of a steep hill, but
has finé official buildings, banks, etc.
Most of the buildings are of wood and
in the lower sections of the city the
streets are of plank. They have fine
water and an abundance of cheap elec-
The terminus of the boatline, Skag-
way, was reached the fourth morning,
and it certainly impressed me as a de-
serted village. During the days of the
gold rush in this section it was a city
of twenty thousand people, now the
population scarcely reaches eight hun-
dred. Vegetation here is most lux-
urious. I saw pansies three to four
inches across the flower, roses five
inches, while strawberries grow as
large as apples and all other things in
proportion. Skagway is the terminal
of the Alaskan railway over the White
Horse pass to the Yukon, a distance of
112 miles. The first twenty miles of
the route presents some magnificent
scenery and skillful engineering. The
road is literally hung onto the cliffs
like a thread and has a grade of three
thousand feet in twelve miles. Reach-
ing White Horse the same evening we
embarked on the boat for a 460 mile
trip down the Yukon, but which in re-
ality runs north to Dawson, a journey
consuming two nights and a day,
going with the current, but four days
and nights coming back against the
current. The boats are of shallow
draft, drawing not over four feet of
water. Wood is used for fuel under
the boilers and when running against
the current it takes about a cord an
hour to keep up steam, and this ne-
cessitates frequent stops for a supply
of wood. The wood piled along the
banks of the river costs $8.00 a cord.
From the steamer quite a number
of caribou could be seen on the banks
of the Yukon, as well as other wild
animals. Natives say that it is not an
uncommon occurrence, late in the fall,
for steamers to come across herds of
caribou swimming agross the Yukon
and to save killing any of the animals
the steamer would be run to the bank
until all the herd had crossed.
On the boat we were served both
moose and caribou meat, the latter
being fine grained, tender and very
palatable. Accommodations on the
boat are naturally limited because of
the light draft but the interesting and
beautiful scenery makes up for the in-
conveniences of transport.
Two nurses from Vancouver, who
were visiting at White Horse, were
taken aboard at the latter place for
the trip to Selkirk, where an epidem-
ic of influenza was raging among the
Indians, and they were sadly in need
of experienced help. Selkirk seems to
be a port of dogs. They either heard
the chug, chug of the boat’s engine or
got the scent of the steamer’s ap-
proach, and it seemed as if all the
ogs in Alaska came running to the
wharf on the lookout for scraps of
food. usually thrown to them. It was
a snapping, snarling, fighting mass of
canines—about five dogs for every
scrap thrown ashore. In fact the dogs
outnumber the inhabitants about four
We arrived at Dawson at 9 o'clock
in the morning of July 7th, and it
seemed as if the whole town was up
and at the landing to greet the steam-
er. The residents of that place go to
bed late and sleep late in the morning.
They are a very hospitable people and
do everything possible to make it
pleasant for the stranger within their
Dawson, however, like Juneau, has
much the appearance of a deserted
city. There are many empty houses
and vacant places of business. The
city is a mile long and half a mile in
width. At one time it harbored 30,-
000 inhabitants, but a count today
would not find more than five or six
hundred. There are several fair grade
hotels, fairly clean and moderate
prices. Rates per room run from
$2.00 to $3.00 per day. Each hotel can
boast of but one bath room. The ho-
tels all have bars where liquors and
wines are sold but no beer, the cost of
transporting the latter making its
sale prohibitive. Refrigerators are a
superfluous adjunct here as they are
not needed. A cave dug four or five
feet underground furnishes a natural
cold storage plant in which meat or
any kind of food will keep indefinitely.
A big flood at Dawson this spring
destroyed a large portion of the water
front and wrecked a part of the low-
er portion of the town. A large squad
of Canadian police is stationed at
pline through a large tertitory, larger
in fact than the ‘State of Pennsyiva-
nia, but which contains only 3,500 in-
The mining operations are carried
on by large companies. On the Klon-
dyke river an enormous dredge digs
the ground to the depth of 25 or 30
feet, runs it through a washery and
collects the gold dust. The average
production is from thirty to forty
ounces a day, and the cost of opera-
tion for labor and electricity from
$300 to $400. The dredges cost deliv-
ered here about half a million dollars
each. The ground has tc be thawed
out ahead of the dredges, an operation
performed by flushing with cold
On Bonanza creek, where the orig-
inal gold discovery was made, the en-
tire bottom has been dredged and now
enormous hydraulics are tearing down
the hillsides and washing the dirt
through sluice boxes. Deep valleys
are being filled up with the refuse.
Electricity.and water are plentiful
everywhere. In the summer there is
an abundance of fresh moose and car-
ibou meat, with salmon, graylings and
trout as the fish diet. de
The water is conveyed in pipes laid
only a few feet underground, and in
the summer is ice cold, but warmeriin
the winter, as it is necessary to inject
steam into the source of supply to
keep the water from freezing.
The smallest piece of money to be
seen here is a quarter, and nothing
can be bought for less than that. A
copy of the tri-weekly newspaper costs
a quarter. When it comes to fruit you
can buy two apples or oranges for a
quarter and three plums, apricots or
peaches, but you must take a quar-
ter’s worth. “
The curio shops are filled with
many beautiful fossils, ivory carvings
and chains and pins of gold nuggets.
The best restaurant in the place
serves a fine meal 24 only one dollar.
The menu calls for fa plate of soup,
choice of roast beef, moose, caribou or
salmon, (and you get a generous por-
tion); potatoes and peas, dessert and
tea or coffee. The food is well cooked
and nicely served. Fresh cow’s milk is
scarce, but even so it can be had for a
quarter a quart. The best time that
can be made getting mail out from
Dawson is four days by boat up river,
one day by rail over the White Horse
pass and four days by boat to Seattle.
They have a movie theatre here but
the night I was there there were only
fifteen people in the audience. But
this was because so many people are
laid up with the flu. Log cabins, fur-
nished, are offered free for the win-
ter season to any one who will come
to Dawson to live. Second hand stores
of all kinds abound in large numbers.
Even at this late day gold is sometimes
panned on the sites of famous saloons
of years gone by, when gold dust was
the only medium of exchange and
handled so carelessly that quantities
of it fell through the cracks in the
floor and is only now being recovered.

Bellefonte Jumps Into First Place.
By winning two games the past
week Bellefonte again heads the clubs
in the Centre county baseball league.
The slump.into which the local play-
ers dropped several weeks ago was
not in evidence in their work on the
diamond last week, but their lead is
not sufficient to jubilate over. A few
games lost will again set them back,
and for this reason there should be
few more “losts” in their column. The
result of the games played during the
week was as follows:
On Thursday evening, Bellefonte 2,
State College 1; Millheim 4, Hecla
Park 0. On Saturday Bellefonte won
a ten inning game from Hecla Park
by the score of 4 to 3, while State Col-
lege defeated Millheim 6 to 3. On
Tuesday evening of this week Belle-
fonte played a postponed game with
State College, the latter coming out
victorious by the score of 11 to 7.
Tomorrow Hecla Park will play at
Bellefonte and *Millheim at State Col-
lege, while next Thursday’s games—
Bellefonte vs. State College and Mill-
heim vs. Hecla Park—will both be
played at Hecla Park as attractions
for the big picnic of the Undine fire
company. The standing of the clubs
to date is as follows:
W. L. P.C.

P. 0. S. of A. Camp Instituted at Pine
Wednesday evening of last week
was an epoch in the history of Pine
Grove Mills. At that time a new P.
O. S. of A. camp was instituted with
sixty-six men present at the initia-
tion out of sixty-seven who had sign-
ed the roll of membership. Represen-
tatives were present from seven
camps, namely: Herndon, Hunting-
don, Beech Creek, Boalsburg, State
College, Lemont and Centre Hall.
Prior to the meeting there was a pa-
rade, with 120 men in line, carrying
flags, preceded by drums and the
Herndon degree team in uniform.
The meeting was presided over by
H. W. Long, State conductor, of Han-
over, Pa., and assisting him in the
ceremonies of the institution were W.
D. Custard, of State College; Henry
Hosterman, of Boalsburg; E. S. Rip-
ka, of Millheim; Grant Coble, of Le-
mont; William Graffius, of Hunting-
don; George B. Jackson, of State Col-
lege; W. H. Bland, of Centre Hall, and
George Meyers, of State College.
The Herndon degree team credited
with being the best in the State, put
‘on a perfect drill and exemplified the
degree work in a remarkable manner.

Following the installation a fine
lunch was served and a number of im-
promptu talks made by some of those
present. T. L. Moore, State camp or-
ganizer, and a member of Centre Hall
camp, has reason to be proud of his
work at Pine Grove Mills. He cover-
ed the territory completely and was
more successful than any organizer
who has so far worked in the Central
Pennsylvania field. Pine Grove Mills
is also to be congratulated on having
in their midst a new organization of
live and energetic men, arrayed under
a banner that has already meant so
much in state and national affairs.
May the new camp prosper and grow
in influence for good.
Dr. Capers Buys the Funk Bungalow.
Dr. R. L. Capers has purchased the
bungalow of Richard Funk, on east

No Business Men’s Picnic this Season.
The Associated Business Men of
this place are not to have their usual
outing at Hecla Park this season.
They have abandoned the project, but,
happily, the Undine Fire Co. has
taken it up and invites the world to
join in a great day at the Park on
Tuesday, August 6th.
They are going to have everything
that goes to make a successful picnic.
Excellent eats, light refreshments,
dancing, ball games and spectacular
Bellefonte will play a regular league
game with State College at 3 p. m,,
and at 6 Hecla and Millheim will take
the field. At 9 an unusual display of
fire works will be made.
It is the Thursday half-holiday and
a great crowd should gather to have a
good time with the firemen as well as
to help a good cause along.
——Among the visitors in Belle-
fonte yesterday morning were Mrs.
W. H. Beck and her son W. S., of Sny-
dertown. They have retired fror
farming but still occupy the lovely
home on the highway where the arch-
ing maples convert it into the perfect
arbor that attracts the attention of so
many tourists. William 8. is prepar-
ing for college and will probably enter
State next year.
——A ten pound son born to Judge
and Mrs. Arthur C.-Dale, on Saturday
night, has been named Arthur C. Jr.
border, one of the old-time residents
of Ferguson township, died yesterday
morning at the home of his son Rob-
ert, at Warriorsmark, as the result of
general debility, following a prolong-
ed illness. ; !
He was a son of Thomas and Lydia
Kustaborder, and was barn in Fergu-
son township on February 8th, 1851,
hence was 74 years, 5 months and 22
days old. He was a farmer by occu-
pation and his entire life was spent in
Ferguson township until his retire-
ment a number of years ago when he
located at Warriorsmanrk.
He married Miss Margaret Han-
nah, who died September 9th, 1922,
but surviving him are the following
children: Robert S. Kustaborder, of
Warriorsmark; D. C., of Bellefonte;
James M., of Lemont; Mrs. Milton
Carver, of State College; Mrs. Ed-
ward Conard, of Warriorsmark, and
George W., of Tyrone. He also leaves
one sister, Mrs. James Houser, of
State College. Burial will be made at
Warriorsmark tomorrow (Saturday.)
RESIDES.—Mrs. Rebecca Resides,
widow of John Resides, died at the
home of her daughter, Mrs. H. G.
Reese, at Sandy Ridge, on Saturday
morning, following several monih’s
illness with an affection of the liver.
She was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Mifflin Gault and was born in Belle-
fonte on August 13th, 1884, hence was
almost’ forty-one years of age.. Most
of her married life had been spent at
Sandy Ridge. Her husband died nine
years ago but surviving her are four
children, Mrs. Amos Garland, of San-
dy Ridge; Harry, of Derry; Mrs. H. G.
Reese and William, of Sandy Ridge.
She also leaves one sister and three
brothers. Burial was made in the
Philipsburg cemetery on Monday
SPICHER.—Miss Catherine Spich-
er passed away at her home at Pleas-
ant Gap, on Saturday morning, as the
result of general debility, aged 82
years, 9 months and 25 days. She
was a daughter of Michael and Cath-
erine Spicher and was born in Juniata
county. She came to Centre county
when a young woman and for a num-
ber of years lived in Pennsvalley, but
had beer a resident of Pleasant Gap
the past thirty years. She never mar-
ried and her only immediate survivor
is one brother, Michael Spicher, of
Pleasant Gap. She was a member of
the Reformed church all her life.
Funeral services were held at ten
o’clock on Tuesday morning, the re-
mains being taken to Centre Hall for
BRESSLER.—J. E. Bressler, a na-
tive of Pennsylvania Furnace, but for
many years a resident of Renovo
where he was in the. employ of the
Pennsylvania railroad company until
his retirement “thirteen‘“years ago,
died last Thursday and was buried at
North Bend on Sunday. He is sur-
vived by eight sons and daughters.
Beech Creek Woman Must Leave
Mrs. Annie Salmon, of Beech Creek,
convicted in the Clinton county court
of conspiracy in connection with the
burning of the barn of G. Mack John-
ston, of Beech Creek township, last
October, was given a suspended sen-
tence by Judge Baird, at Lock Haven,
on Monday, on condition that she leave
Beech Creek and vicinity and stay
away for a period of ten years. Grant
Reeder, Mrs. Salmon’s “hired man,”
who applied the match to the Johnson
barn, is now serving a ten year’s term
in the penitentiary.
In the civil action for damages
brought by Mr. Johnson against Mrs.
Salmon a settlement was made ‘on
Tuesday whereby Mrs. Salmon paid
the plaintiff the sum of $1,300 and
costs of suit. The barn and contents
destroyed were valued at $3,000.
—— Clyde Long, of Howard, has
furnished a bond of $500 for his ap-
pearance at the September term of
court, following his arrest on Sunday
by members of the state highway pa-
trol, after he had wrecked his car at
Hublersburg. Long is alleged to have
driven his automobile while he was
under the influence of intoxicating
beverages. He was accompanied by
two men and they were returning via
Hublersburg from Hecla park. The
car swerved from the road, struck a
fence post, bounded into the road and
then came to a halt against a tele-
phone pole. No one was injured, but
the car was badly damaged. Long
was arraigned before justice Kline
Woodring, Monday morning, and
waived a hearing.
We regret to learn that John H.
Beck has lately been quite ill at his
home at Snydertown. Mr. Beck has
not been in good health for some time
but able to be about and look after his
mercantile business as usual until
Wednesday, when he suffered a col-
lapse and his family were quite alarm-
ed about his condition. His grand-
daughters, Misses Mildred, who is a
nurse in training, and Miriam, are
both with him so that if careful nurs- |
ing has any virtue he will probably be
about again shortly.
