FRIDAY,   JTJNg 17,   1898.
The declaration of intention
made last Thursday by Mr. II.
Herschel-Cohen of the Cassiar
Central Railway Company, of
which organization he is the head,
means much to our people. If he
has told the truth,, *ishe future of.
Glenora is assured,, and we will
have a substantial town at this
point. If he has buj. talked for
publication," and the two thousand workers do not materialize
within the next sixty days, then
we will know that jre have been
fooled again,, and such a result
will forever settle this camp so far
as those now here are concerned.
The C. C R. people need only
to begin grading their roadbed,
and a substantial town will spring
up on their new to\vtisite at this
pofcit." Wen ik.u ^^Wfi.d engaged
in business will proceed to fall
over each other in the attempt to
buy corner lots and erect substantial business houses thereon. Given
something certain to depend upon,
and the pioneers of the All-Canadian route will show the world
how to build a town in a day���a
town that will endure.
Time will tell the story. Those
who have faith and the nerve to
stay with the camp until the good
times promised do arrive, will
make big money and make it ipiick.
But the railroad, wagonroad ami
political powers that be have
"played horse" with the people-
here to such an alarming extent
that the editor of the Xkws hasn't
the nerve to offer any advice to the
confiding public over the new development in affairs pertaining to
the future of Glenora.
This great philantliropical institution intends to  camp right here
until the cows of prosperity   cone
home. We have paper enough to
last us five years, after which date
we can print the Nkws on birch
bark, if necessary. The day will
come when there will be substantial prizes to give out at this particular point, and the Nkws' capacity for prize money is landless.
If the Cassiar Central does not
materialize according to promise,
some   other   road   will.    Railroad
builders will never go out of badness in British Columbia so long
as there is a dollar or an acre of
ground to be obtained from the

no   just cause of  complaint.     All
we   have to   fear is that   some dis- J

the everlasting loss of Cassiar.

representative of the Cassiar. If

our district will be in safe hands.

voters should take some action
to protect our interests in the
premises. If some such man as
J. Frank Callbreath could be

"The Cassiar Central Railway from Glenora to Deise Lake will be built immediately. The headquarters will be at Dease

Sixty miles will be completed in six

From SKa9uu.iv to Bennett fl Terrible Stench-
Mr. W. Stuart, who was recently in
Vancouver on his way 10 Dawson, and
who went up Iron here to Skagway
with Mr. II. While, Router's correspondent, writes to the Ottawa Free Press,
giv.,.g a description of his journey across
White Pass to Lake Bennett. The following extracts are of interest;
From the Ford to the Summit the trail
passes aliing the side of the mountain for
n mile or more about too feel above the
valley below and then up the centre of the
valley over a branch of the Skagway
River to the Summit. The trail is very
narrow on the   mountain side   and is very
dangerous. It looks as if the snow might
slide at any moment and carry everything
with it into the vallcv below. A large ox
fell Over this part of the trail anil was
smashed to pieces. After von pass the
Summit the winter trail is over it chain of
lakes to the Log Cabin Hotel, 16 miles
from the ford. Summit Lake is about 8
miles long and one-hall mile wide. Between Summit Lake anil Middle Lake
there is a long dangerous canyon 50 feet
to 100 feet wide. Through this canyon
the water rushes over rocks and boulders
at a   great   speed.     At   the   head  of this
canyon there is a restaurant called Rescue
Camp. It is well named, for a more
dangerous and bleak looking place, without tree or shelter, except rocks, you
could not imagine. At the lower i'n\.\ of
Middle Lake we passed Balsam City, a
number of camp* and canvas tents, so
called because it is the only place where
you can get any wood. Met ween Middle
Lake and   Shallow   Lake   there is a small
gravel portage, and a son .ol "Auld
Reekie" keeps a restaurant there. From
the end of Shallow Lake to the Log Cabin
Hotel the trail l-'aves the lakes and follows along the tops of a low grlvel ridge. '
W'e traveled the 10 miles in four hours
and ten minutes Log Cabin hotel is a tent
14x24, with balsam bunks in one end of it,
two tin stoves and one table. The night
ot the 20th of February it was 35 below
zero and blowing a gait. Ihiity-one
men and one woman slept in t^-- lent,
some standing proppe I against the wall,
packed like sardines in a box. \\ e had
dinner at the cabin, $1 a meal. Prom the
cabin lo Bennett, 10 miles, the trail is
over a very rough country, hills and
valleys covered with boulders, from the
si/.e of your head lo as large as the City
postoffice. This part of thetra.il is covered to within thnce miles 01' Bennett with
small scrubby trc.es. The lire has run
over and burned the most pari of the
lumber. The snow is nearly all gone off
the trail between the Cabin and Bennett,
except in the valleys, and the trail is in an
awful state, mud and water up to your
waist in places if you slip off the boulders,
and dead horses are lying jtfrt as they
died On the trail. It urill be hard to bury
them, as there is not enough mud to cover
them. The stench is bad now, but in
anothet month it will be terrible.
The White Pass in winter is a very
good way of coming to this country, but
for summer I think from all I can hear
the Chilkoot Pass is the best. The lying
cabmen of Niagara are not in it with
Dyea and Skagway cabbies. There are
over 3,000 dead animals, horses, cattle,
dogs, goats and sheep, from Skagway to
Bennett. It is like going over a battlefield. What with the cursing and swearing and yelping of dogs and the sight of
the dead animals it makes many a man
think is all the gold in the Klondike worth
such a sacrifice of life? 1 think not, hut
being Scotch I cannot turn back, but must
march  on.
