The 2000 Klondikers between
Glenora and Teslin Lake who are
waiting for a wagonroad to be
built had best order in another
year's supplies to sustain them
until the road has been built, for
iu spite of all talk to the contrary,
there is no hope of a wagonroad
this year. Those who cannot wait
another year for the road had best
sell or give away their supplies and
*nart on afoot (if they can't buy
packhorses of pay 35 cents a pound

Down at Ahe Hudson's Bay Post
in New Glenora work .is going on
at a rapid rate. The sound of the
hammer and saw is .heard all day
long, and buildings, the best in the
country, are growing as if by
magic.
The H. B. Post at Glenora is
to be the supply point for all the
posts in the Yukon and Cassiar
districts. Here will be stored the
goods that are to be used Iby the
people in the interior, and if one
supposes that great preparations
are not being made to handle this
great trade, they have only to
make the trip to the Glenora post
and see the shiploads of goods
stored there.
Tl in .in s.w.c building is
30x90, a story and a half in height.
Back of the store a mammoth frost
proof cellar is to be built in the
bank of earth that begins its rise
there. The lower story of the
building is composed of a warehouse and supply room 28x30 feet,
at the rear end of the building.
Then comes the liquor department,
20x30, and then the office and
salesroom, 30x40. Upstairs Mana
ger Robinson and his assisttaute
have their living apartment*.
The building is of modenn^yie,
and very attractive iu appearance.
There is a belfry and a big brass
bell that is to announce the opening and closing of the store, and
dormer windows and ornamental
architecture add to the appearance
of the building.
Fronting on the river bank is a
warehouse 30x60, in which will be
stored the goods to be sent farther
inland. An inclined slip will run
down to the dock at the river's
edge, and a steam hoist will bring
the freight from the boats to the
warehouse. The Strathcona will
run all the season bringing in the
company's supplies, and the Caledonia will also engage in the same
business as soon as it has made its
four trips the Skeena.
The H. B. Co. now has about
400 packhorses on the Teslin trail,
and is hiring all the horses it can,
paying 35 cents per pound for
packing to Teslin.
The Strathcona brought the mail
yesterday, and today our people

bratiug, the flags of Glenora feel like
hanging at half-mast, and more than a
thousand betrayed Canadians are mournfully repeating Premier Turner's brilliant
question, "What are we here, for?"
It is unusual for newspapers of this Dominion to be published on this great holiday. For some time prist the News has
fell as though Glenora had been wiped off
the map, and not knowing where we were
located we never thought of Dominion
Pay until ii pill in an appearance. Our
type being up, I lie paper has gone to
press.
Owing to the fact that today is Dominion Hay, the Nuvvs will not be issued next
Friday. This excuse may not appear to
be a good one, bill il is a betti r one than
Premier Turner can give for the stories
he has told about our wagonroad. Xews
comes from Nine-mile creek ot it rich
strike of salmon trout that run two to the
pan, and the entire staff of the GLENORA
Xkws will prospect that stream next
week. The paper will appear as usual

''Wli.it are those men there for?1' asked
Premier Turner of Captain York, when
told that o'oon prospectors were at Glenora and at points along tilt' trail waiting
for a wagonroad.
It's enough to make an Vnarchisl of
every man in town. Premier Turner is
personally responsible for the presence
of many men ai Glenora, Ho has for
weeks past proclaimed from platform and
through press thai a wagonroad was in
course of coitststtclion between Glenora
ami Teslin, when Buch is not the case.
He has told this story to Hoards of Trade
and ii' every individual who asked hint
for information, and many have come
here as a result of his talk.
For Premier Turner, of all men, to ask
"What   are   they there for?"   is adding
insult to foul injury.

At the miners' meeting held a

York was sent as a delegate to interview Premier Turner and tthe
Provincial government on the
wagon road question. Capt. Y<u:k
performed his duties well and paid
all his own expenses. He saw the
Premier who told him that the
Government did not know that
Mackenzie, Maun & Co. had
stopped work, but promised that if
they did not go on with the work
at once the Provincial government
would build a wagonroad immediately.
Capt. York, not realizing that it
was so near election day in the
province, believed what Turner
told him, and proceeded to buy
wagons, horses and oxen lo take
his supplies through. He arrived
in Glenora Wednesday night on
the McConnell, and now he lias
