Atlin City. B. C.. April IC, ISt)!).���������  .My Dear Friend: George and I are  eruite well. We survived the privations and hardships of the past year,  aud are cheerful and hopeful for the  future.  1 am glad to be once more in com'  munication with my friends, the- lirst  time since last September. We arrived here three weeks ago by Teslin.  We are on the hustle every day. We  found the ground pretty well staked  along most o������ the streams. Still  there was some good ground passed  bv or not seen- -Many claims although  staked correctly were not recorded  ror various reasons. Others again  although recorded were uot staked  legally. Consequently the new comer  got idemy of good claims. We secured a few very favorable looking  ones, and we are after a few more.  We wintered ai the old Hudson Bay  post.      Had  a   very gooel  time      and  made  some  money.      Put      up      anel  sold  a  few  tons of '    hay.      Speared  three tons of salmon through the ice.  Made  it into pemican.and   sold  it for  dog feed, besides feeding our owu two  dog .teams.      Drove scurvy    patients  to  the hospital   at Glenora for      tlit*  government at S5.00 a  day for      man  and dog team.     Had a good comfortable log cabin freo. also a good cook  ���������stove, the ouly one in the     country.  It was Intended for the steamer built  a-: Teslin, but got stranded.     We put  in bunks and did a lodging business.  Got another cabin close by. free also,  aud did a storage     business.      From  these various sources we were enaoicn  to replenish  our somewhat    depleted  exchequer.      The snow was deep, especially on the summits on the trail.  But   the , weather  was  delightful,  especially   around   our   camp.      A   few  cold  dips 40 and 50 below for a few  davs. then up to 20 and 30 abovo. not  enough wind tob low the snovi    from  the  troes.      We  hunted  considerably   during the fall, and early winter.    Got  abundance of ducks, grouse, pheasaiiis*  ar.d ptarmigan, tut no large game,  The Indians, however, supplied us  verv cheaply with plenty of moose  hnd' cariboo" meat. It is the finest  meat we c-vr used. We had plenty  of dried fruit aud everything good.  This wilh plenty of exercise in the  open air are the only preventives of  scarw. ihe banc- - of this northern  flimat?. Some of our fellow travellers were not so fortunate in those  blc-ssicirs and fell a victim to thc  dread dis-sasc-. We have not heard  jot of any etlaths directly from ii.but  V)nif- of th������m wc fear cannot live.  Good authorities tell us few. if any,  entirely K-covor from it.  On March 1st we pullod out fur  h^rn 250 miles. We hatl two . sti:el-  1..-IU teams. mir Sandon hound.-.  Bingo and Bonaparte, pure French  Beagles, and a team we bought, a  fine Scotch shepherd and a Belgian  blood hound, We made the trip inside of four weeks, although dclaye-d  some days by storms. We land'-d '."')'.'  pounds here. On had roaels and up  hills we had to push hard and often  double the teams. It was very cold  and rough the first half of the iri p.  Afterwards it was fin*-. Tbe last  few days we suffered from snow  blindness, a very common trouble  here. We had a fine tent, very  light. 20 pDtinds, although 10x12 and  .. good stove. "We hael plenty of room  for ourselves, our loads and our dogs.  So many were travelling that only  once had we to make a new camping  ground, always linding tent poles and  brush beds awaiting us.  Well lhis is quite a lively camp or  town. Quite a number of buildings,  and a great many more going up.  Tents, hundreds, yes thousands of  them here, up the trail eastward along  Pine creek, at Discovery, a town seven  miles up. and at Surprise, another  embryo tawn. at ihe bead of Pine  creek and tho root of Surprise lake,  nine niiles from Discovery. This is  a beautiful townsite. nearly level,  about enough trees for shade. It is  nicely surveyed. .1. H. Brownlee is  towusite agent. His son.

When at  intervals two or.at most five hours  could be snatched for rest, how soft  the planks of the round house floor  seemed"1 as I would throw my tired  oody upon them and with a bundle of  waste for a pillow and no preparation  other than kicking off niy heavy shoes  drop off into a dreamless sleep only  to be again awakened for another attempt to prevent the 11 foot firebox  tit the old Baldwin hog from eating  ihe seven tons of coal on the tender  before the summit at ISlossburg was  reached. There was only one relaxa-  *.ion outside of these occasional naps,  and thnt was in coming down the hill  .m either side. Then the fireman was  .-.t liberty to light his pipe and ring a  warning bell at the occasional road  t-rosslngs. In the exhausted condition  ..lost ot us found ourselves this amusement would set the participator nod-  f.ing and that would not be tolerated  .'>��������� the engineers, irritated as they  ivere by the disturbed condition of  labor circles. In order to avoid the  advances, of  the  drowsy  gou  and  at  ne same time perform a portion of  ihe fireman's,) duty, which -from con-  .tant roau-service might otherwise be  ,-egiected, I would cilmb out on the  .unning board and with waste in hand  .vipe   tne  boiler  jacket,   steam  dome,  ana box, bell, smoke arch and cab as  we swayed around sharp curves or  .umblea over high trestles, the nx-  -reme uanger ot tlie pus...un serving to  ..eep me awake and the result of my  ..���������orK to win commendation from my  -ngineer and muster mechanic. The  .unnel whicli pierced tne mountain  just east of Biossburg waa alwavs  -Hied with smoke ami this, with tiie  -.ripping water from thc damp rocks  ���������it its roof and sides, would besmear  ���������������������������he engine from  stack to cab, so  the  ��������� iownward  pitch  of  the -hill,    alwavs  ��������� olind ine outside.  A telegraph ollice called SkyllneSvas  ihe lirst habitation passed after letiv-  .iig*. the lunnel going toward Helena;  .non, crossing dozen of tressels high,  low, wood anil iron, some on a straight  ine and some on reverse curves, the  track wound around on a pitch of 200  feel to the mile through the mountain  pass. A smaller tunnel, more curves  bridges and rock cuts, and another  telegraph otllee, Butler, was reached,  i wo long side track's for meeting  trains had been put in here, a water  tank enabled the thirsty giants to  store in a fresh supply ot steam giving  fluid in going west, and a little dog  house, called by courtesy a telegraph  office, stood with its semaphore like a  warning arm etxending toward the  track. In order to guard against a  .lead on collision arising from an east  bound train getting beyond the con-  irol of the crew and tearing into  Liutler before thc opposing train was  In the sidetrack to clear, a so called  'safety switch" adornetl this station  yard, a monument to the mentility of  tome theoretical cln_f engineer of  maintenance of way. Thc switch connected a-spur side track leading a  niiort distance up a sliglit_incline,_ter_^_  -iiiinatiiig-ln_a-san"d' bank. When ' a  meeting point was made at Butler  eno operator there .wus given'" an  order to set his "safety switch" and,  alter his reply was received, the trams  .vould be given tne appropriate meeting orders. ��������� Though It afforded immunity from heau on collisions in  -ase of a runaway, yet the prospect  presented to ths crew of the runaway  .rain for long life and happiness was  ..ot dazzling. Even if the engine took  .ne switch without leaving the track  ..ne short spur would be only a snaw  .o check the speed before lt piled up  .a the sand to be covered with freight  jars and their contents.  From Butler east the country waa  'ess rugged, though a grade of 100 feet j  .o the mile was followed to Birdseye,  inence to tne grade crossing of tne  Aioiuana Central railroad the track  iv us level, followed by a. slight incllna  -mo Helena. This description only  .alntly pictures one side ot the hul  on wulcn I passed so many perspiring hours.  as thu engineer has * only little  manual labor to perforin his efforts to  seep awake were more unsatisfactory  when handicapped oy long hours, auu  rather than be caught napping old  ilander. the "eagle eye" of the 481,  demanded and received eight hours'  i'est In every 24. Though it was accorded the engineer the fireman who  displayed such . temerity would have  had his life made miserable, so I  poked around attending to my duties  in a semi stupor all tne time with a  3tranger at the throttle every" few  trips.  one morning I found a new engineer  oiling round in Gander's place when  I came yawning down from the lunch  counter to go as a helper on No. 1, the  Pacific express. He was a long haired,  eccentric fellow, one of the first "scab"  -���������ngineers employed during the strike  and retained more on that account  -han for his ability as a mechanic.  In fact, the concensus of the opinion  among the firemen was that any man  who went over the hill with the new  man took his life tn his hands owing  to his ignorance of the machine In his  charge.  We went to ISlossburg all right and  there cut loose from the passenger  train and followed them down the  mountain. Nothing seemed wrong  with the way he handled the engine  except his apparent unfamlllarity with  tho nir brake, a device never so Important as on such a hill as this. On  reaching Ellloton we wore'ordered to  turn back with 32 loads, double beaded  Blospburg, and with the 481 alone  bring the train through from that  with another mountain engine to  point to Helena.  Tho   new   man   worked   the   engine  very hard In  the short run to Bloss- ���������  burg,  taking fully  two thirds of the j  weight of the train, and every    now I  helper hanging out of his cab window  laughing at me while he watched the  blacK smoke roll from the -isi's stack.  The crest of the hill was at the east  switcn of Biossburg sine track, and  after the helper engine cut olf we  pitched down into tne inky blackness  of the tunnel with nothing to do but  to keep the train under control. ��������� As  we emrged into daylight again 1  climbed bareheaded from the cab  window to the running board reneiy to  begin my reqular wiping off. Hardly  fiael I made a pass over the boile;.  ] jacket when it seemed the old girl had  gone craZy There was no checking  speed,   but,  instead      the      whistlS  be el is-  trumpet on the  few   seconds   of  ot    .    be>Jl 'beside me vibrated      with  frantic  brlikes ������" th0 "W-Hcatlon of hanel  Drakes in response to the einrineer's  nervous jerks of tho wh st..' cord  wh?nhaeinU.y )lUe man "'"' '^tT.s air,  which had been turned from "automatic to 'straight" on all the cars  before leaving Biossburg that possiblo  Jeakago anight not set tho braku  and it. seemed that my period of rest  iu common with that of the rest of  thc tram crew would onlv  turbed by Gabriel's  judgment day. A  deliberation served to convince me  I would stand as much chance for mv  life where I was as inside the cub,  and acting on this decision I hung  doggedly to the hand rail with* one  hand, while with the othor I passed  tho waste mechanically over the shivering siues of an engine whose momentary transformation from a  powerful mechanism to a, heap of  useless scrap iron seemed imminent.  My mind was busy footing up my  shortcomings, great and small, and  admitted no thought of phvsical  fatigue. I did not dread what seemed to be the inevitable ��������� result, the  novelty of the situation throwing me  in a sort of trance. Looking into  the cab I could see tlie engineer pale  anel Inert Bitting there with apparently no Idea of what he should do. It  was too late for me to render assistance and T looked back at the train.  There I saw the three brakemen  stretched out on the tops of as many  cars holding to the running bar with  a death grip. The conductor was  seated in the cupola of the caboose  straining at the brake in a useless  attempt to check the speed.  A swing and . a' lurch and we  struck Skyline bridge, a long reverse  curvo tressel over 2U0 feet ln length.  Tho structure swayed until lt seemed  many inches out of line, and how It  stood the enormous strain- of the engine, or how the train held the track,  no' theory could ever make plain to  me. We. passed safely over, and  with Increased speed roared past the  rock cut on the other side of the  gulch. It would be useless to attempt to describe the details of that  ride; it was the rush of an avalanche  holding In itst embrace half a dozen  human lives. * Half a dozen! Aye  more, for we had orders to meet  another freight train at Butler, and  unless they left Helena long" before  our departure from Biossburg our terrible run would bring us to the meeting point Joug before the opposing  train would be on the side track, and  if the operator at Butler had neglected to set.tho safety switch that crow  as well might pass into eternity.  1-Jagerly I watched ahead for the  Butler semaphore, and when it came  in sight a littlo down the mountain  I felt it was all up with us without  question. Seeing the safety switch  was not set I frantically motioned to  tho engineer to renew his whistle  signals that the operators might still  turn thc bar which would at least  save the lives of those Innocents  running into danger. Our engineer  could seo tho peril and the train crew  also understood from-the, whistles  what was in store for them.  As one man wo ull began scanning  the rocky slopes of the track endeavoring to find some spot soft  enough to warrant a flying leap with'  an accompaniment of broken bones.  We struck the straight line a few  hundred  yards  west  of Butler  with  then see tho other train waa "in to  clem-" on the side track with nothing  to obstruct our progress, thc crew oi  the side tracked train scuttling out  of the right of way to avoid possible  flying fragments. Smoke and llame  was pouring from a dozen axle boxes  along our train, lending-tho added  danger-of a broken Journal and derailment to the already existing  probability of jumping the track. The  ri hVVi ! guides of tho -181. lu plain view from  my perch ou the running board, wore  blue from friction, and -.the air was  filled with the odor of burning oil  from the various overheated bearings.  The noxt point wbero troublo awaited  U3 was tho crossing of the Montana  Central railroad, where state laws and  tlio rules of the road compelled all  trains to stop before venturing over  tho other tracks. I think all had  become hardened to danger by this  time and wero speculating on our  chances for cutting the train of a  rival  road in two.  Sure enough a traiii was about to  pull over i������ our face anei eyes, when  its engineer, realizing the situation,  stopped just in timo for us to bound  across'.' clearing their engine pilot by  two feet. We struck the up gratlo  here, and a slackening of speed allowed the brakemen to pass from car  to car, setting the brakes as they  went-and bringing the train to a  standstill just over the crossing, and  .nono.too soon, for an axle ot tho  engine truck broke at the collar  while the drivers were making their  last revolution. It was useless to  attempt to start with the 481 in this  condition, and a man was sent two  miles into Helena for a wrecking  train, and thero ended our, run.  My labors ,ln cleaning-the engine  were wasted, for It was months before  481 came out of the shop-after being  practically rebuilt, and the engineer  received an indefinite - suspension  without pay in which to study the  mechanism of the Westinghouse  brake.  ���������A.
