came as a whip to
men's greed and a challenge to men's courage,
that first ringing call
of the Northland. Until then—a
little over thirty years ago—Alaska
was almost unknown, a white space
on the map over which was shakily
scrawled "Come - and - find - me."
That is, to most of the world; for
the Northland had even then its
pioneers, its prospectors, who had
fished its teeming coasts, trapped
its furs, started small towns, and
panned the first coarse colorings
of gold along its creeks. But outside of these sturdy old-timers,
Alaska, with its side-partner, the
Yukon, was hardly more than a
geographical curiosity — a huge,
unpopulated, unexplored, inhospitable block of land over three-
quarters of a million square miles
in size, forming the northern tip of
the American continent. It had, as
far as one could estimate then, no
very remarkable resources or trading possibilities; on the contrary, it
was apparently a land of perpetual
winter, frozen permanently under
solid snow and ice—in this and
many other ways exactly resembling Russia, to which it had once
belonged and from which, at the
Bering Strait, it was so narrowly
separated.
A pity, perhaps, that the first
real revelation of a real Alaska—
an Alaska different from all one's conceptions, and richer
than Monte Cristo—should have come through that basest
of motives, avarice. The discovery of gold in the Klondike
in 1896, in such vast quantities as to astound humanity, let
loose so much sensation that overnight the new bonanza
became almost the most famous place on earth. That
feverish stampede to the north (one does not have to be
very middle-aged to remember it) was like nothing that
had ever happened before, or that has ever happened since.
The Trail of '98
back in '98 someone took a photograph—reprinted, in
case you've never seen it, on our last page—of an everyday scene in the White Pass.   It shows, struggling over the
steep, dangerous  snow-clad  wastes, a thin black streak
Printed in U. S. A.—1929
nearly two miles long—a streak composed entirely of men,
mushing "inside" to the Klondike, with nearly 600 miles
travel ahead of them, and treading so close to one another
in the narrow trail that they very nearly kicked the
previous man's ankles. And this was an everyday scene—
happening all the time. . :
They had their hardships, those early days, before the
railway was built, and when cheechako and sourdough alike
had to travel that arduous path over the Chilkoot Pass
(or later, the White Pass) and down the Yukon River,
Greed pulled them forward; the crowd behind pressed them
onwards; if they could not endure the strain they fell out
and perished. There was no turning back. It was truly no
place for weaklings, for one was beset not only by a hostile
Nature, but also by the wickedness and depravity of man-

kind. The opportunities drew to the
Northland some of the most lawless
characters of the earth, and had it not
been for the swift justice meted out
by the Royal Northwest Mounted
Police, it might have been true that
"There's never a law of God or man
Runs north of Fifty-three."
The Spell of the North
THE    NORTHLAND    put    a    Spell    On
those who made its acquaintance then.
It will put the same spell on us today. It is a land of mystery—a magnet that will always draw men and
women, even though the lure of the
gold is fainter now. It is still a land
of romance, its atmosphere impregnated with memories of those sad,
glad days when the century was just
turning over. Gold has ceased to be
its principal advantage—has, indeed,
proved a false hope in those many
ghost-like "cities" that parade their
empty shells from Dyea to Nome;
but there is equally the romance of tomorrow, the discovery of other and
richer resources, the development of
a vigorous, prosperous northern empire.
Alaska is a land of contrasts. Never
was so mistaken an idea as that it is
all winter. If it were, whence come
the gorgeous, vivid flower gardens
that one sees everywhere, such masses
of color that they dazzle the eye? The
answer is simple: the warm Japan
current, striking Vancouver Island,
is deflected northward, and carries to
the Land of the Midnight Sun the
Rail  Connections
The quickest and most picturesque
route to Vancouver from the East is
by Canadian Pacific, through the
Canadian Rockies, six hundred miles of the
most magnificent mountain scenery in the
world.
In summer, four through trains a day:—
The  Trans-Canada  Limited,  from both
Montreal  and  Toronto—an  exclusive
all - sleeping - compartment - observation
car train.
The Imperial—from Montreal.
The Vancouver Express—from Toronto.
The   Mountaineer—from   Chicago,   St.
Paul and Minneapolis.
Victoria  and   Seattle  are   reached   from
Vancouver   by  the  fast  "Princess"   steamships.
Customs
Baggage checked through from any
United States point to any point in Alaska,
or from any Canadian point to any point
in the Yukon territory, or vice-versa, and
not required en route, is not subject to
Customs examination.
Hand baggage, or checked baggage required en route, is subject to examination
northbound by the United States Customs
at Ketchikan, and southbound by the Canadian Customs at Prince Rupert. Checked
baggage, if desired, may be forwarded to
destination in bond.
The baggage of passengers making the
White Horse, Atlin or Dawson trips will
also be examined by Canadian Customs on
entering Yukon territory, and by the
United  States  Customs  on  returning.
same delightful humidity that the
Pacific Coast knows. But in winter,
inland over the White Pass, how cold
it can be!
Alaska is a land of gold, of flowers,
of black fox farms, of salmon, of Indians, of curious Indian totem poles.
It is a land of magnificent scenery.
The journey there, by steamer, is one
of nearly a thousand miles, through
scenery of a character unknown elsewhere on this continent. For four
days the steamer threads a long, almost land-locked channel, known as
the "Inside Passage," winding through
mountain-hemmed fiord-like waterways as through a fairyland, with
wooded islands, tremendous glacier-
clad peaks, fascinating Alaskan towns
and queer old settlements as contin-

America, either in beauty or in romantic appeal, can quite compare with
this trip to Alaska.
The final contrast one meets is in
transportation. For the Chilkoot Pass
has been superseded by the comfortable railway journey over the White
Pass, and the extraordinary, haphazard and over-crowded steamer experiences of the early days have been
superseded by the magnificent service
provided by the Canadian Pacific
"Princess" steamers.
Northward Ho!
Vancouver, largest port on the
Pacific Coast of Canada, is a beautiful city situated upon an almost landlocked harbor. With important lumbering, mining, manufacturing and
trading interests, and with a huge
overseas business with the Orient, it
is also a delightful summer city, with
all kinds of outdoor recreation.
Victoria, at the south end of Vancouver Island, across the Juan de Fuca
Strait, is the capital of British Columbia; and the imposing Parliament
Clothing, Meals, Etc.
Passengers should provide themselves
with a good, warm top-coat. The general
weather is very fine and warm, but a good
covering for the evening or a damp day
is very desirable. The Canadian Pacific
does not supply steamer rugs, but has arranged to carry on the steamships a limited
supply of rugs, which will be rented to
passengers for the round trip at a nominal
charge. The company does not supply the
regulation ocean liner deck-chair, but supplies comfortable camp chairs with backs,
free of charge. Barbers, ladies' hairdressers and manicurists are carried on all
steamers.
The meals provided on the "Princess"
steamships are breakfast, lunch and dinner,
with light refreshments served in addition
in the dining saloon at night. While the
steamship is in port at Skagway, meals and
berth are not included in the passage
money, but can be secured if the passenger
prefers staying aboard.
Victrolas are carried, with a suitable
supply of records, as well as a piano.
Buildings that front the inner harbor
are some of the finest in America.
Victoria is a charming city of beautiful homes and lovely gardens, and
is a favorite summer and winter resort.
Seattle, on Puget Sound, is one of
the most progressive cities of the
Pacific North-West.
Leaving Vancouver
the voyage to Alaska can be divided into two parts. From Vancouver to Ketchikan the journey is
mostly through narrow channels, with
steep shores heavily timbered to the
water's edge. The second part, from
Ketchikan to Skagway, is through
wider stretches of water, with glaciers,
waterfalls, and rugged mountains on
either side, and richly colored with the
purple twilights of Alaska.
The Princess steamship slips away
from Vancouver on its four-day
northbound trip at 9:00 o'clock at
night, when the long summer dusks
have begun to darken. After trunks
have been stowed and opened, dining
room reservations made, and casual

Totem  Poles
Leaving Vancouver Island
Alert Bay to Swanson Bay
The totem poles of the Indians of
British Columbia constitute one of
the most striking features of the
whole north-west coast. These long shafts,
irregularly planted on the seashore among
smoke and feast houses, convey impressions
from a strange world. The rugged peaks
and wooded gorges beyond, with their ever-
changing shades of dark greens and soft
blues, provide a unique setting for them.
And the squat Mongolian features of the
Indians themselves carry one's imagination into the mysterious realms of Asia.
These remarkable carvings should not be
mistaken for idols or deities. They were
never worshipped. But they are pictorial
records of history and mythology, as the
Indians understand them. Some of them
represent the Raven, the Eagle, the Killer-
whale and the Wolf, which are the emblems of the largest social groups in the
nation. The Bear, the Frog, the Sea-Lion,
the Beaver, the Thunder-Bird, and many
others are the crests of various clans. Here
we have to do only with coats-of-arms.
low-travellers, there is still time for a
stroll up and down deck before turning in. By this time the ship has left
Burrard Inlet, passed Brockton Point,
and has entered the Gulf of Georgia.
On the right is still to be seen the dark
bulk of the mainland; on the left, but
invisible yet, is Vancouver Island, in
whose lee the route is sheltered for
over two hundred miles.
The First Day
the course is south of long, narrow Texada Island and through Discovery Passage, between that island
and Vancouver Island. The early
risers—and they only!—will see Seymour Narrows, for this, the narrowest
part of the channel, is passed about
6:00 a.m. Some day, perhaps, the
Narrows will be bridged, but at certain times they are rather exciting to
navigate, for the ebb and flow of the
tides around the north end of Vancouver Island make the current rush
through it like a millrace. An hour or
so later the ship passes through Johnstone Straits and Broughton Straits,
along whose shores a number of log-
Other characters are occasionally introduced among these figures, which are understood through the medium of myths
and tales of the past. These are the ancestors of the owners, and often the "uncle"
in whose honor the pole was erected after
his death, by his nephew or legitimate successor. Battles and other noted events are
also commemorated on poles. A man who
wishes to ridicule a rival or discredit an insolvent debtor may represent him head
downwards on whatever pole he may erect
in a feast.
There were once many native artists of
great repute, who were hired at large for
carving poles, according to definite instructions furnished them. Large logs were
hauled over long distances for the purpose.
When the carving was finished, numerous
guests assembled for the potlatch or feast
of commemoration. Lavish presents were
made to the guests, whose function it was
to remember the meaning of the figures on
the poles and acknowledge the rights of
the legitimate owners.
ging camps can be seen. And then
after breakfast—even after the last
of all sittings, when those who got up
late are just reaching for their first
smoke of the day, and those who got
up early are just beginning to sigh for
lunch—we reach our first stop, Alert
Bay.
Alert Bay
alert bay is a small village on a
small island—Cormorant Island—situated so close to Vancouver Island
that the maps are almost unable to
make any distinction; but it is nevertheless one of the principal salmon
canneries on the Coast. Here, in fact,
will be our first glimpse of this important industry, and during the time
in port the canneries invite visitors to
inspect the highly interesting processes
of turning a large, handsome salmon
into shiny little round cans. Alert Bay
is an old settlement, with a considerable Indian population; and here, too,
we make our first contact with another
object typical of the Northland—the
totem pole. (See rrTotem Poles.")
The Indian cemetery, with some
modern poles, is well worth the short

Entering Alaska
Swanson Bay to Ketchikan
The Princess Steamships on
the Alaska run are fitted with
every comfort and convenience
for passengers.
Staterooms on the Princess
Steamships are light, cozy and
well-ventilated. They are not
overcrowded, but designed to
accommodate only two passengers per stateroom. On each ship
there are a few "de luxe" rooms
with private bathrooms, and also
some with sofa berths.
The community rooms—dining room, observation room,
lounges, smoking room, etc.—
are bright, cheerful and charmingly furnished. All three ships
have dance floors.
Baggage
Free allowance on "Princess" steamers
of 150 pounds on whole tickets, and 75
pounds on half tickets, will be granted,
with the customary charge for excess
weight.   Steamer trunks intended for use
stroll to see it; but it is to be regretted,
somewhat, that the gigantic poles that
until recently stood close to the wharf,
and which were some of the most
notable of their kind on the whole
Pacific Coast, have now been sold by
the Indians, principally to Stanley
Park, Vancouver.
Queen Charlotte Sound
after lunch we leave the shelter
of Vancouver Island, reaching Queen
Charlotte Sound—with its short experience of open Pacific Ocean. From
Cape Scott, on Vancouver Island, to
Cape St. James, at the southern end
of the Queen Charlotte Islands, is
about 150 miles; but we bear away
from that wild and rather primitive
group, and keep instead close inland,
reaching Calvert Island in three hours
—the longest of the three times we
shall see the wide horizon of the open
Pacific Ocean during the entire trip.
Passing through Lama Passage,

Through passengers from eastern or
southern points making the Alaska trip
will be granted free storage at Canadian
Pacific wharves at Vancouver, Victoria, or
Seattle for thirty days, after which regular
storage charges will accrue.
Indian Baskets
Basketry has become an important industry among the Indians of the Pacific
Coast. This primitive and lowly art went
neglected for many years, but now the
market afforded by the fast increasing tourist travel has brought it to life again.
At every port of call along the route
to Alaska, complacent "hootchmen" squat
on the wharves in the midst of exquisite
examples of this old craft. Some of the
basketry is hand-woven, some coiled or
sewed. Bright and dark colors blend in the
designs and borders, tracing out patterns
of flowers, animals, geometric figures, or
the weird images of Indian mythology.
One may choose from a thousand shapes
and sizes. The prices asked seem low,
when the beauty of the articles and the
labour which must have gone to their
making are considered.
and practically deserted Indian village. At 10:00 at night, or so, we
enter Old Ocean again, this time at
Milbank Sound, but only for ten
miles, "and so" (as Samuel Pepys
says)  "to bed."
The Second Day
entering the Tolmie Channel, between Princess Royal Island and the
mainland, we pass Swanson Bay in
the night, and then enter Grenville
Channel, in the shelter of 60-mile-
long Pitt Island. At about breakfast
time we pass the mouth of the Skeena
River, and shortly, with Digby Island
on the west, on which may be seen the
Canadian Government wireless station, arrive at about 9:00 a.m. at
Prince Rupert.

Immigration
Inspection
Passengers entering Alaska from Canada are required to pass United States Immigration Inspection at Ketchikan, the
port of entry. So far as bona fide tourists
are concerned, this inspection is not strict.
Passengers will be asked by purser for certain information regarding age, place of
residence, business, etc., and will be given
a card by him. This card is presented by
the holder to the immigration inspector,
who boards steamer at Ketchikan, and as
soon as particulars shown by purser on
manifest are checked by the inspector, the
passenger can go ashore. There is a similar inspection by the Canadian Immigration Department on arrival of steamer
southbound at Prince Rupert.
Passports are not necessary.
Times
Times  of arrival and departure at the
various  ports  are  posted  on  the  bulletin
board of the ships.
rock, the city is considerably above
the level of the wharf and is reached
by a long staircase. It is a very important fishing centre. Large quantities of fish, particularly halibut, are
now being shipped from here to Eastern Canada and the United States.
A big cold storage plant is located in
the Upper Harbor, where the fish are
unloaded and put into cold storage or
iced, as the case may be, for shipment
to the East.
Prince Rupert is the Pacific terminal of the Canadian National Railways, and has a very large floating dry
dock, 600 feet long and capable of
lifting vessels of 20,000 tons weight.
The visitor will probably be interested,
during his stay on shore, in the fur-
stores of the city—the first sight he
will obtain of the great fur industry
of the Northland.
Entering Alaska
shortly after leaving Prince Rupert, the old Indian village of Metlakatla is passed. Here is a very successful mission for the natives,
founded by Father Duncan. About
30 minutes later, Port Simpson is
passed—one of the oldest settlements
in Northern British Columbia, with

an old Hudson's Bay Company's post
that has been a trading-centre with
the Indians for about sixty years.
About three hours after leaving
Prince Rupert, Green Island Lighthouse indicates our nearness to the international boundary line between
Canada and Alaska (United States).
Dixon's Entrance, last entrance of the
open Pacific Ocean, is crossed, and we
wind our way through Revilla Gigedo
Channel—here called Tongass Narrows—to Ketchikan.
Ketchikan
ketchikan (an Indian word meaning "the town under the eagle")   is
the southernmost town in Alaska, situated on Revilla Gigedo Island. It
might also be said to be now the most
prosperous town in Alaska, for salmon
and halibut have made it rich and
given it large canneries and cold
storage plants. It is also a mining
centre for copper, gold, platinum, silver and lead, the well-known Salt
Chuck platinum mines being within
30 miles. Ketchikan has a bustling
air, with hotels, stores and banks.
Originally an Indian fishing camp, it
has several large canneries, and a
great mosquito fleet of fishing vessels
is continually bringing in fish from
the sea.

PRINCESS CHARLOTTE
PRINCESS ALICE
To Alaska by the Inside Passage, and back, is a two-thousand-
mile-nine-day journey from Vancouver, with six ports of call. To
handle the tourist business, the
Canadian Pacific operates during the summer months three of
the finest of its well-known
"Princess" steamships, which
are large, modern vessels of the
most comfortable sea-going type.
The Princess Louise is 330 feet long,
with a passenger capacity of 260.
The Princess Charlotte is 330 feet
long, with a passenger capacity of 255.
The Princess Alice is 289 feet long,
with a passenger capacity of 222.
These three ships are oil-burners,
and are fitted with wireless telegraph.
The Inside Passage
Ketchikan to Skagway
The visitor will find interesting
curio stores. There is also a pleasant
walk to the waterfall in Ketchikan
Creek (about 15 minutes), where in
the late summer months thousands of
salmon may be seen leaping and
struggling through the rushing, foaming water on their way to the spawning banks. There are two splendid
totem poles—the Chief Johnson totem, surmounted by Kajuk, a fabled
bird of the mountain which amuses
itself by throwing rocks at ground
hogs, with below the Raven and the
Frog Woman with her children, the
Salmon; and the Kyan totem, surmounted by the Crane, followed by
the Kyak, another legendary bird,
and the Bear.
The Third Day
a distinct change of scenery occurs from now on. The stretches of
water become wide, and mountains
rise on either side, with waterfalls
tumbling down and glaciers crowning
their crests. The steamer winds along
Clarence Strait, with Prince of Wales
Island on the west, and turning round
Salmon and Other Fisheries
The fisheries of the British Columbia
coasts now constitute one of the greatest
industries of that region. They include
salmon, halibut, cod, herring and to some
extent whale. Salmon production is about
half the entire production of all fish, but
the halibut catch is of much importance,
also herring.
About five varieties of salmon are found
on this coast; but the sock-eye (or red salmon), the best-known commercial species,
is in greatest favor for canning purposes.
The silver, or "coho," which comes next in
popularity, and the quinnat (or spring salmon), the largest variety of Pacific salmon,
are marketed fresh to a great extent.
Canneries are established at numerous
points on the coast. These are conducted
on thoroughly modern and hygienic lines,
and the work is done almost entirely by
highly ingenious machinery which performs the work with a rapidity and a
precision unobtainable in the days when
work was done by hand. Halibut is shipped
fresh, large cold storage facilities being
available at several places, particularly at
Prince Rupert.

Wrangell
wrangell, situated on the island
of the same name, is one of the oldest
cities of Alaska, and is named after
Baron Wrangell, who was governor
about 1830. It was originally a trading post, populated mainly by Indians

Taku Glacier
we are now surrounded by the

sends out hundreds of odd-shaped ice

floating by to melt gradually in
warmer waters, as slowly the steamer
approaches this famous sight. This
glacier, a mile wide and 100 feet
thick, extends for over 90 miles back

—a mixture of brown, white, and blue
colors—"dead" and receding, the
other very much alive and continually
moving forward. Showing all the
colors of the rainbow, according to
the time of day or position of the sun,
huge masses of ice frequently break
off into the sea, with deafening
thunder, and float majestically away.
Even the vibration caused by the
ship's whistle will bring down great
hundreds-of-tons pieces of ice.
Juneau
three hours' steaming up Gastineau Channel brings us to Juneau,
clinging to the base and sides of
Mount Juneau, which towers 3,500
feet almost perpendicularly above,
near the mouth of the Taku River.

A long or near  the  Inside  Passage  to

The principal ones are:—-
Taku Glacier  (see page 12).
Wright Glacier (beyond Taku, higher

Norris Glacier, near Juneau.
Davidson Glacier, on the west side of
Lynn Canal, just before reaching Haines.
Denver Glacier, about six miles north

Muir and Brady Glaciers are on Glacier

A glacier is, broadly speaking, an accumulation of ice, of sufficient size and
weight to flow down from a snow-covered
elevation. It is a river flowing from a lake,
only the lake is of snow and the river
of ice. The thickness of the ice will
vary greatly—it may be, under favorable
conditions, as much as 1,000 feet.
Glaciers frequently extend far below the
snow line of the region. Exactly how a
glacier moves has never been satisfactorily
explained, but that it does move has been
proved by observation and calculations;
more than that, the stream at the centre
of a glacier moves much faster than at
the sides or bottom.

Indians
The natives of the West Coast are
strikingly different from other North
American Indians; to many they are
not Indians at all, but a race apart, whose
characteristics are' reminiscent of Asia.
Their ancestors are indeed likely to have
come to these shores across the sea or over
the Strait of Bering, long ago, after earlier
migrations had already peopled most of the
two American continents.
The name of "Siwash," ignorantly given
them, is derived from the French sauvage.
They really belong to more than five races,
whose languages are totally different; the
Salish, whose habitat once covered much
territory around Victoria, Vancouver, and
the main coast north and south—the Nootka, who dwell on the west coast of Vancouver Island, and their distant relatives,
the Kwakiutl, whose territories* stretch
northwards from Vancouver Island to a
point near the Skeena River—the Tsim-
shian of the Skeena and Nass Rivers and
the adjacent coast, near the present town
of Prince Rupert—the Haidas of Queen
Charlotte and Prince of Wales Islands—
and the Tlingit of the Alaskan coast. Another race, whose name is Dene or Athapascan, inhabit much of the interior, beyond the boundaries of the above-named
nations.
The west coast natives are essentially
fisher folk; they formerly secured their
food almost wholly from the sea. It consisted of seals, whales, salmon, halibut, fish
roe and ooiachen, or candle fish. Their
dug-out canoes stood to them as did the
horse to the buffalo-hunting Indians of
the prairies a century ago. Before the advent of Europeans they could hardly ever
venture beyond their frontiers. War and
daring raids were most common among
them, for they were bold, venturesome and
cruel. Even to this day they are fond of
relating tales of adventures of the none-
too-distant past.
They were not nomadic, as were their
eastern neighbors, but each family claimed
hunting grounds and territories within the
national boundaries. They migrated to
their hunting and fishing camps in the
spring and returned to their villages on
the coast in the autumn.
Community life was active only in the
winter—that is, during the potlatch season. The leaders then proceeded sternly
to their business—the exchange of goods,
the promotion of their children and nephews, and the various ceremonies that appertained to their social welfare and dutiful
commemoration of the deeds of their ancestors. They were keen and thrifty, and
their will unbending. Their numbers were
formerly   considerable,  but   they   are  now

their culture has forever given way to that
of invaders from the West and the East
who are gradually driving them off the

Historical  Notes
The region now known as Alaska
was first visited by white men in
1741, when two Russian officers, Captains Bering and Chirikov, explored the
coast as far south as Dixon Entrance.
Many traders and trappers followed them,
and Kodiak Island was settled in 1784.
Owing to the excesses committed by
private traders, who robbed and massacred
the Indians, Russia created in 1799 a
semi-official corporation called the Russian-
American Company. Alexander Baranov,
a famous administrator, founded Sitka in
1804. The monopoly of this company
ended in 1861, with the appointment of
Prince Matsukov, an imperial governor.
The United States had already made overtures for the purchase of "Russian America," and in 1867 the purchase was consummated for the price of 07,200,000.
But thus far the Northland had been
considered only in terms of fisheries and
the fur trade. The discovery of mineral
wealth was made much more slowly, and
it was not until the sensational finds of
rich "placers" in the Klondike in 1896,
which culminated in one of the most hectic
gold rushes of modern times, that the
attention of the world was riveted upon
this feature. The Yukon Territory was
constituted in 1898. The Yukon River
was explored by Russians as long ago as
1842, and in 1883 Lieutenant Frederick
Schwatka crossed the Chilkoot Pass, descended the Lewes River to Fort Selkirk,
and so down the river to the sea.
The entrance to the interior country of
the Yukon, back as early as 1860, was via
Dyea and the Chilkoot Trail. When the
Klondike was discovered, the stampeders
used this trail until the discovery of the
trail from Skagway over the White Pass
to Lake Bennett. The Chilkoot Trail was
practically abandoned during 1897; the
White Pass was the "Trail of '98," and
was not abandoned until the White Pass
Railway was completed.
Taku Glacier, provides the most
wonderful scenery of all. For over 80
miles we steam up this arm of the
sea, which varies in width from one to
five miles. Mountains of rock capped
with snow, towering glaciers and
gushing waterfalls, canyons of all
sizes and wild shapes, and colors in
restless variety surround us. Davidson
Glacier is a huge ice wall seen on the
west. Passing the town of Haines and
Fort Seward, we suddenly turn a point
to see Skagway ahead of us.

 PSINCESS ♦ SanCA^lSJBQOP>S 'TO«ALASKA
The Mounted  Police
The famous Royal Canadian Mounted
Police—formerly named the Royal
North-West Mounted Police—still
number the guardianship of the Yukon
Territory amongst their multifarious
duties, and greet you, as customs officers,
when you cross the border. Due credit
has perhaps never been given to the scarlet-
coated "Mounties" for the way they enforced the law during the great gold rush.
Some writers seeking material for highly-
colored adventure stories (says Captain
Harwood Steele, in his "Policing the
Arctic") have done the force certain injustice by representing the Yukon of that
period as a violent country. The real
truth is that notwithstanding that the gold
rush brought to the Yukon—merely by
being a gold rush—some of the most lawless characters on earth, the administration
of justice in Canadian territory was so
strict as to strike terror to the hearts of
the wrong-doers.
The force, the same author continues,
first went north in 1894, with the first gold
discoveries. During the stampede, only
three killings—none of which were preventable—occurred in Canadian territory.
The Mounted Police assisted 30,000 persons, collected 0150,000 in duties and fees,
checked over 30 million pounds of solid
food, carried the mails and escorted gold
shipments out of the country. At the
height of the rush they had some 200
officers and men, but now, of course, much
fewer.
Skagway
skagway, the end of the northbound
run, is a town that has loomed large
in the history of the North. When
the gold rush started to the Yukon in
1896, the landing was made at Dyea,
which lies on the western branch of
the Lynn Canal, and the trail inland
led over the dangerous Chilkoot Pass;
but word came of the discovery of the
White Pass, and in a day fifteen
thousand people left Dyea, and in a
day Skagway arose where before was
chiefly swamp.
At the height of the gold rush,
Skagway was one of the wildest,
wickedest places on earth, chock full
of the gambling halls, dance halls,
saloons and other lurid temptations
that nowadays can be seen nowhere
else but in the "movies."   Gangs of

"bad men" terrorized the town, preying not only on the returning successful prospector but on the incoming
"cheechako" as well. Skagway is not
such an ancient town but that old-
timers can regale you with stories of
its celebrated characters, such as
Soapy Smith or Frank Reid, whose
graves nearby will initiate many reminiscences. But those days are over.
Skagway is a model of propriety, with
hotels, stores, and the peaceful air of
ordinary business.
Amongst the marvels of Skagway
—to those at least who have never
considered Alaska as aught but perpetual winter—are its beautiful flower
gardens. The background of mountains that enclose it like a cup offer
many attractive outings, such as
"hikes" along the Skagway River, to
Fortune Bay, Smuggler's Cove, or the
great Denver Glacier. There are fine
launch trips available, and good fishing. The steamer lays over about 36
hours before starting on its southbound journey.
Inland from Skagway
interesting though Skagway is,
the shortest visit would be incomplete
without a journey to the equally interesting and fascinating "inside."
Such a journey, difficult as it was in
the early days of the gold rush, can
now be easily undertaken, for Skagway is the southern terminus of the
rail line of the White Pass and Yukon
Route. A comfortable train, with
large-windowed observation cars, will
carry one through the magnificent
scenery of the White Pass into the

For those who are returning south
by the same "Princess" steamship,
there are available the excursions to
West Taku Arm or to White Horse.
For those waiting over until the next
steamship there is the trip to Atlin
Lake—where, indeed, many visitors
linger much longer than such a brief
visit. A description of these beautiful
trips will be found on page 23. But
for those with more time, we will continue on to White Horse, whence
there is the wonderful trip down the
Yukon River to Dawson.
The White Pass
the rail journey is a most spectacular one. The salt tang of the sea
is left behind, and the sweetness of
lake and mountain air fills the nostrils. The scenery grows rugged and
awe-inspiring. We climb steadily
around gorges, along the brink of
deep canyons, past roaring cataracts,
and near dead cities to which cling
memories of the trail of '98. Such
names as "Dead Horse Gulch" and
"Log Cabin" help vividly to recall
those grim days.
At White Pass Summit — nearly
3,000 feet higher than Skagway in
twenty miles! — we leave American
territory, and the scarlet-coated
Mounted Policeman greets us as we
enter Canada. A bronze monument,
where the flags of the two countries
float side by side, marks the boundary
line. For a very short distance we
travel through British Columbia, and
then at Pennington cross into the
Yukon Territory.
Mountains
The mountains that fringe the Inside
Passage to Alaska form practically one
range throughout—the Coast Range.
Leaving Vancouver, the mountains are, as a
rule, higher on the mainland side than on
Vancouver Island, averaging 3,000 to 4,000
feet in height; but towards Queen Charlotte
Sound they tail off somewhat. From the other
side of the Skeena River, and entering the long
Alaskan "panhandle," the altitude increases
again. From Juneau north to the White Pass
the range is sometimes known as the Chilkoot
Range.
The White Pass and Yukon Railway from
Skagway (which is, of course, at sea level) to
White Horse reaches its highest altitude at
Log Cabin (2,916 feet). On the other side of
the summit, the surface is, generally speaking,
a huge plateau, broken by long spurs of mountains. Lake Bennett is 2,161 feet above sea
level and Atlin Lake 2,200. Jubilee Mountain,
at the north end of Lake Atlin, the highest
in that district, is about 4,200 feet above the
lake  (6,380 feet above sea level).
In the extreme south-west corner of the
Yukon Territory, where it tucks into Alaska,
is an isolated, exceedingly lofty group of mountains known as the St. Elias Range. Mount
Logan (19,539 feet) and Mount St. Elias
(18,024 feet) are the highest. They are, however, very inaccessible owing to lack of transportation thither. Mount McKinley, highest
mountain on the American Continent (20,464
feet), lies in the National Park of that name.
Lake Bennett
on our left, Lake Bennett begins
—a long, narrow body of water which
the railway will follow for twenty-six
miles. It is rather amazing to learn
that Bennett, where a stop is made for
lunch, and which consists merely of a
station and its outbuildings, once had
a population of several thousand, and
teemed with life and excitement. For
it was to this beautiful lake, bounded
by old-rose color, that the "Trail of
'98" led. Those who had survived the
epic hazards of the Pass camped on
this lake, and whipsawed lumber to
make the rafts, scows and other manner of water craft in which to reach
the golden land of their hopes. Little
did they know, of course, the perils of
the White Horse Rapids, or if they
had heard of them, little did they
appreciate them.

Fox  Farming
The day of the trapper in the Northland is passing, chiefly by reason of
the decrease in the supply of fur of
good quality; bi ; is rapidly
developing instead. With the exportation
of live foxes practically forbidden by legislation, a number of farms have been started,
and this industry is becoming an important
one.
Foxes are popularly classified as red,
black, blue and white. The black fox
presents many color phases, ranging from
clear black to extra pale silver. The Alaskan fox is one of the distinct branches
of the black fox, but does not breed true
to color with the native Canadian. The
"patch" fox is obtained by crossing the
red with the black, and the "cross" fox
produced by mating together two distinct
types of the black fox, such as the Alaskan
and native Canadian. The blue fox will
not cross with either the red or the black,
and only occasionally with the white (or
Arctic)   fox.
Mink and seal furs are also produced in
Alaska and the Yukon.
The Midnight Sun
On the 21st of June, Dawson has 22
hours of sunshine and two hours
of twilight. Approximately 114 days
in the mid-summer months have no
real night. On the contrary, the sun is
out of sight from December 5 th until
January 6th, and December 21st has 18
hours of darkness and six of twilight.
The season of navigation on the Yukon
River opens between May 25th and June
1st, and closes between October 5th-10th.
White Horse is a busy little town
on the west bank of Fifty-Mile River
(also known as the Lewes River and
sometimes as the Upper Yukon).
There is fairly good hotel accommodation to be obtained. Trips to the
rapids and other points may be made
by automobile over good roads. It is
the terminus of the railway, and the
point of departure for the steamer
trip to Dawson.

the journey from White Horse
to Dawson and back, one that can be

Gold  M
As early as 1861 gold discoveries
/A were made in the Stikine River,
-L -L and from 1866 to 1887 some
gravels of value were found at many places
along or tributary to the Yukon River.
The location of the first Klondike claim in
August, 1896, was followed by a feverish
and picturesque rush, the like of which
the world has never seen before or since,
and the mines in American territory were
temporarily deserted.
The Yukon is a "placer" mining district:
that is, the gold is found in alluvial gravels,
and is obtained by assorting the gravels in
water. Frequently these deposits are along
the hollows of river beds, but they are also
found at higher altitudes, in terraces that
formerly were the beds of streams that
have changed their courses. In the latter
case, instead of being worked in the creek
or sluice, the gold deposits are first washed
down by powerful jets of water projected
by hose lines, and so into the sluices.
The Bonanza was the greatest of the
Klondike creeks, and its tributary, the
Eldorado Creek, the richest, probably surpassing any known placer deposit. The
Klondike output reached its climax in 1900,

which flows in from the south, the steamer
brings one, in about five days from Dawson, to Nenana.
Here the Alaska Railroad is met—running north to Fairbanks and Chatanika,
the centre of a great placer gold mining
district, and south to Seward, on the Gulf
of Alaska. The latter takes one fairly
close to Mount McKinley National Park,
and the majestic mountain itself—highest
peak of the North American continent—
is in sight practically all day. Farther
south is Anchorage, where the U. S.
Government commenced construction of
the Alaska Railroad into the interior in
1915.
Another route from Fairbanks is by the
Richardson Automobile Highway to
Chitina—a splendid 21/4-day motor trip
through a very primitive country, connecting with the Copper River and Northwestern Railway back to the seaport of
Cordova.
From either Seward or Cordova steamer
can be taken to Juneau, and the southbound journey resumed there by Canadian Pacific.
new Mayo silver-lead camp 175 miles
east. Smaller steamers ply the Stewart
as far as Mayo, whence it is a case of
"packing in." Swede Creek has a
Government Experimental Agricultural Station, and then we are at Dawson. The trip from White Horse
takes about two days — the return
trip, owing to the current, about four
days.
Dawson
dawson, once the focus of the
world's greatest gold rush, the headquarters of the whole Klondike region, is now hardly more than a
shadow of its former glory. Mining
operations are still in progress, but
they are carried on under hydraulic
and dredging conditions; the picturesque days of which one reads in
Service and Jack London have departed.    Gone   with   them   are   the
DAWSON, hu
of the Klondyke
region—and also
a flower garden of
the same famous
city.
highly colored, sensational chapters of
Dawson's history, when the city was
the rendezvous of outlaws as well as
greed-crazed miners, when dance halls,
saloons and gambling places ran wide
open for the full twenty-four hours.
But to be able to recall that "them
was the days" makes one a real old-
timer, a sourdough — but not necessarily a more than middle-aged man.
Dawson is the administrative centre
of the Yukon Territory, and the
headquarters of a large detachment
of that fine body of men, the Mounted
Police. It is beautifully situated on a
bend of the Yukon River, up-to-date,
well-built, with comfortable hotels,
fine homes and pretty flower gardens.
Over good roads one can visit mining plants and old, played-out but
famous bonanza claims. The Indian
village of Moosehide, and the fox
farms, are worth a visit; while the old
cabin of Robert W. Service, the poet-
laureate of the Northland, is the objective of many pilgrimages.
To Atlin
to atlin is another delightful excursion from Skagway, either as a
side trip on the Dawson trip or as
one in itself. The route is the same as
before to Carcross, but here the commodious steamer Tutshi is taken,
through a chain of sapphire lakes,
mountain-girt and forest-guarded.
The steamer first crosses Lake
Nares, and then through the narrows
enters Tagish Lake, horseshoe shaped
and guarded by high peaks. Old mining towns and fox farms are seen
along the way. Presently we turn into
the Taku Arm of the lake, a beautiful sheet of water encompassed by the
most inspiring scenery, and then into
Taku Inlet as far as Taku Landing.
[page twenty-three]
 l(HE'"WranE']PA$SAtN]D> «"YlDM:OM'tt01DTE
Here, where a wonderful view may be
obtained of Jubilee Mountain, to the
north, a transfer is made across a
three-mile neck of land by a very
unique little train.
At the end of the portage we reach
Lake Atlin, and board the twin-screw
motorship Tarahne for a six-mile run
to the little town of Atlin.
The Atlin Inn
near the boat landing, and facing
the lake, is the Atlin Inn, built and
maintained especially for tourists by
the White Pass and Yukon Route.
From its windows a magnificent view
may be obtained of the Atlin Mountains across Lake Atlin. The tourist
will find the Atlin Inn very inviting,
the cuisine  and service  excellent.   A

stay here for a day or so, or indeed
for several weeks, will add greatly to
the pleasure of the Atlin trip.
There is an indescribable tonic effect in the Atlin climate. Numerous
side trips can be taken by automobile,
steamer, launch or on foot to many
points of interest. Amongst these are
the placer gold mines, the fox farm,
the Warm Springs, and the Indian
Village and wherever one goes, one
will find a profusion of beautiful wild
flowers in almost endless variety.
Then, too, there are delightful walks
along the shores. Atlin is the base of
supplies for one of the richest hydraulic mining camps in British Columbia. Those who like fishing can
try their luck at lake trout, whitefish,
or the smaller but gamy grayling.
Llewellyn Glacier
the principal event of the trip to
Atlin is the afternoon excursion on
the steamer Tarahne. For about forty
miles the boat winds its way through
the narrow mountain-ribbed passage
of the West Channel. The boat then
passes out through Copper Island
Narrows, and the return is made down
the other side of these islands on Lake
Atlin, where a magnificent view is
obtained of the huge Llewellyn Glacier and the Coast Range.
When the water is smooth, as it
generally is, and on its surface are
mirrored the vari-colored verdure-
clad hills and snow-crowned mountains with their cathedral-like spires,
the scene is of sublime beauty and
grandeur. And these reflections are
not seen merely for a mile or so, but
mile after mile.
West Taku Arm
another beautiful scenic trip is
that to the West Taku Arm, which
has been especially designed for passengers who are making the round
trip from Vancouver to Skagway and
back on the same steamship, and who
cannot spare sufficient time to avail
themselves of one of the other tours
"inside." It gives these passengers an
opportunity of seeing a maximum
number of points of interest in the
short time at their disposal. It is a
journey which takes the visitor into
the very heart of primeval surroundings, where giant mountains raise their
lofty peaks from the glittering glacial
waters of the Arm, which ends at what
might be termed the "back door" of
the   Taku   Glacier    (see   page   12).
The route followed is the same as to
Atlin, except that at Golden Gate,
instead of turning into the Taku Inlet,
the steamer continues a southerly
course and then west, reaching West
Taku Arm Landing and Ben-My-
Chree homestead. Passengers sleep on
board and reach Carcross in the morning in time to catch the southbound
train and their steamer.

Sporting
The "roof of the world" has been
so richly endowed by Nature
with mighty snow-capped mountains, expansive inland seas, vast areas
of trackless wilderness and lonely tundra that it offers the sportsman a
wonderful variety of hunting. In the
interior country of Northern British
Columbia, the Yukon Territory and
Alaska, the giant moose, the stately
caribou, the wary deer, savage silver-
tip grizzlies, mountain sheep, mountain goat and many other varieties of
game roam at large.
Several species of bear are to be
found in this mountainous domain,
ranging from the huge polar bear and
terrible Kodiak, down through the
different varieties to the common
black bear once found all over
America.
The northern moose, the largest
member of the deer family, is plentifully distributed throughout the
greater part of this country. Magnificent trophies are brought out each
season. Caribou, too, are abundant,
and inhabit the treeless and tundra
sections of the interior. Mountain
sheep and goat are among the most
prized game animals.
The fishing affords an interesting
side line to a big game hunt, and the
swift, tumbling rivers, well stocked
with gamy fighting trout, and the
mountain-rimmed lakes of unequalled
beauty, all combine to make this a
paradise for the sportsman.
The principal big game districts
and the more widely known localities
are:
The Cassiar country of British Columbia, one of the finest and most
celebrated sporting regions of this
continent. Lying back of the coast
range, it is reached from Wrangell,
whence a regular launch service with
sleeping accommodation is operated
up the Stikine River to Telegraph
Creek, B. C.   (see page 10).    From
Hunting in Alaska or
the Yukon affords
many such fine trophies as this Mountain Sheep. (At side)

the head of navigation (165 miles)
hunting grounds are reached by pack
train. An alternative approach is via
Atlin (see page 23) and thence by
pack train.
The Kluahne and White River
country, reached by automobile from
White Horse, Yukon Territory.
The McMillan and Pelly River
districts, reached by Yukon River
steamer to Yukon Crossing or Selkirk, Yukon Territory.
The Kenai Peninsula, via Anchorage or Seward, Alaska.
The Chickaloon - Nelchina region
from Anchorage, Alaska, by train to
Chickaloon.
Alaska Peninsula, Bering Sea and
Kodiak Island—via Anchorage.
Reliable outfitters and guides are
available through whom complete arrangements for hunting trips in the
territory indicated can be made.
The General Tourist Agent, Canadian Pacific Railway, Montreal, has
gathered considerable information
about these peerless hunting fields,
which will gladly be imparted on request.
Geographical
Alaska can be divided, roughly,
into three parts. First, there is the
"Panhandle"—a long, narrow ledge
of land between the British Columbia boundary and the sea, running
from latitude 55° to 60°, and bold,
steep and craggy. Secondly, there is
the huge blunt peninsula of "conti-

nental" Alaska, running from latitude 60° to 300 miles north of the
Arctic Circle, and measuring some
600 miles from the Yukon boundary
west to Bering Strait; and lastly, there
is the long, broken fringe of the
Aleutian Islands.
The Yukon Territory can be easily
confused with continental Alaska, for
its topography, atmosphere and general environment are the same; but
it is separate politically, and is a part
of Canada, not the United States.
Alaska (area 591,000 square miles)
has a population of about 60,000. Its
territorial capital is Juneau. The Yukon . (area 207,000 square miles) has
a population of 5,000 and territorial
capital at Dawson.

Books About the Northland
A great many interesting books can
be obtained about Alaska and the
Yukon. By all means, read some before you start. There are the well-
known stories by Rex Beach—"The
Spoilers," "The Barrier," and "The
Silver Horde"; Jack London's famous
"Call of the Wild," and many others;
Elizabeth Robins' "Magnetic North"
and "Come and Find Me"; James
Oliver Cur wood's "Alaskan"; Edison
Marshall's "Seward's Folly"; and Robert W. Service's "Trail of Ninety-
Eight."
Service's poems, "Songs of a Sourdough" and "Ballads of a Cheechako" are, we imagine, so well known
as hardly to need mention.
The Sourdough
A word in general relative to
/-\ two Alaskan words. Visitors
JL Y^encounter the terms "sourdough" and "cheechako," distinguishing the resident from the new arrival.
The first is a compliment, meaning an
old-timer or one who has seen the ice
form and go out of the Yukon River
in fall and spring. The second is an
Indian word meaning tenderfoot, or
newcomer. Uppermost in the minds
of everyone is the genuine friendliness
and ready hospitality offered by the
"sourdoughs."
One of the surprises is in the gardens of these old residents. Nowhere
can be found finer sweet-peas, dahlias,
asters, stocks or pansies, or such raspberries, currants, strawberries, blueberries and vegetables. Strawberry culture has reached prodigous heights in
Alaska. Every backyard has its patch,
and often there is overproduction. It
is not uncommon to get a quart of
berries from one plant!

Vancouvcr tween Seattle and Vancouver as follows :
— (a) To passengers using 11:30 p.m.

steamer from Vancouver. Passengers using this steamer will
be served breakfast prior to arrival at Vancouver and may,
if they desire, and the Alaska steamer is in port, go on board
at once and occupy their staterooms and will be served their
lunch and dinner without extra charge. Passengers should not
be encouraged to do this, however, as steamer has to load
freight during the day and may have to shift her berth at
Vancouver.
(b) To passengers using 9.00 a.m. steamer from Seattle
on date Alaska steamer sails from Vancouver. Lunch and
dinner will be served to Alaska passengers on local steamers
without extra charge and on arrival at Vancouver they may
at once board Alaska steamer which sails at 9.00 p.m.
From Victoria Northbound—Alaska steamers are scheduled to sail from Victoria at 12.00 midnight. Passengers may
board steamer after 9.00 p.m. on advertised sailing date.
Dinner will not be provided on Alaska steamer at Victoria.
It is not always possible, however, to sail Alaska steamer
from Victoria and in such cases Alaska passengers are furnished with passage, berth and breakfast on local steamer
leaving Victoria 11.45 p.m. and may board Alaska steamer
at Vancouver, they also have the opinion of leaving Victoria
on regular afternoon steamer on day of sailing of Alaska
steamer from Vancouver and will be furnished with stateroom and dinner on local steamer.

steamers are due to arrive Vancouver southbound about 7.00
a.m. on advertised date and usually leave at 9.00 a.m. for
Victoria. Passengers holding Alaska tickets reading to Victoria or Seattle may remain on board Alaska steamer until
arrival at Victoria about 1.30 p.m. and passengers for Seattle
may connect with local steamer from Victoria the same afternoon, or if desired, may stop over at Victoria for forty-eight
hours.

Music equipped with polished oak dance floors
in social hall  on the  after  main deck.
Barbers, Hairdressers    Barbers and lady hairdressers are car-
and Valet Service ried  on  all   steamers.   A  valet  service

Clothing Passengers   should   provide   themseves
Steamer Rugs with a good warm top coat.   The gen-
and Glasses eral   weather   is   very   fine   and   warm,

damp day is very desirable. A traveling rug is very desirable,
although not absolutely necessary. Passengers generally derive
much comfort from a steamer rug. A limited number of
steamer rugs and also field glasses will be carried by News
Agent and will be rented to passengers at a nominal charge.
■ Steamer Chairs The Company supplies, free of charge,
a sufricient number of comfortable camp
chairs with backs. We wish it to be understood that the
regulation ocean liner deck chairs are not supplied. There is
not  sufricient  room   for  them   on  the   Princess   Alice,   and  al-
 though there is a certain amount of room on the Princess
Charlotte and Princess Louise, the use of long deck chairs on
these trips is not considered desirable. Agents are particularly requested to have this clearly understood, and avoid
making application for such chairs or encouraging people to
bring such chairs with them. The alley-ways and deck space
on the Princess Alice are too limited, and they might become
an encumbrance and an annoyance to other passengers even
on the other steamers.
Meals The meals provided on Alaska steamers
are breakfast, lunch and dinner, and in
addition light refreshments are served in the dining saloon
at night without extra charge.
I in migration Passengers  entering  Alaska   from  Ca-
Requirements nada are required to pass the custom
ary United States Immigration inspection at Ketchikan, the port of entry. This inspection is not
strict so far as bona fide tourists are concerned. Passengers
will be asked by purser for certain information regarding age,
place of residence, business, etc., for use in making up the
manifest required by the Immigration Department, and will
be given a card by him. This card is presented by holder to
immigration inspector, who boards the steamer on arrival at
Ketchikan, and as soon as particulars shown by purser on
manifest are checked by the inspector, the passenger is permitted to go ashore. This inspection is greatly facilitated for
passengers from the United States if they are furnished with
the "identification slips", which have been supplied our General
Agencies in the United States. It is important that these
slips be stamped to show the place of issue and signed by the
passenger—otherwise they are of no value, and they should be
pinned to Exchange Order, and passenger should be told to
surrender the slip to the Purser upon boarding steamer at
Vancouver. There is a similar inspection by the Canadian
Immigration Department on arrival of the steamer South
bound at Prince Rupert.
Baggage The usual  free allowance of one hun
dred and fifty (150) pounds of baggage
will be granted on whole tickets, and seventy-five (75) pounds
on half tickets, with customary additional charge on any excess weight. Steamer trunks, if not more than 14 inches in
height, may be placed in staterooms, but it is not advisable,
as staterooms are not sufficiently large to permit of trunks
being opened with any convenience, and they are available in
baggage  room  on  voyage,  unless bonded.
Free storage at Seattle, Victoria or Vancouver.—Passengers holding through tickets and making Alaska side trip
from Seattle, Victoria or Vancouver will be granted free
storage of baggage at the Company's wharves at the points
mentioned for not more than 30 days. After expiration of
30-day limit regular storage charges will accrue.
Bonded BAGCxAGE.-^Baggage may be checked through from
Seattle to Skagway, and if not required en route may be
forwarded under bond to avoid necessity of customs inspection. If baggage is required en route it should be checked
to Victoria or Vancouver only and presented for Canadian
Customs inspection before boarding steamer for Alaska. U. S.
Customs inspection will also be necessary at Ketchikan, the
first port of entry into Alaska.
Southbound.—Canadian Customs baggage inspection will
be made at Prince Ruppert and U. S. Customs inspection at
Vancouver (if passenger is traveling east via Canadian Pacific
Railway) or at Seattle.
Baggage can be checked through from Puget Sound and
British Columbia ports to Atlin or Dawson, via the White
Pass & Yukon Route, without undergoing inspection by Customs officers at Skagway, provided passengers hold through
tickets, and after it is once checked at starting point passen-

until arrival at destination, where all baggage from United
States points is subject to inspection. Baggage originating at
British Columbia points can be corded and sealed and sent
through Alaska in bond without inspection. Baggage originating at United States ports destined to points in Alaska on
the lower Yukon River below Dawson can go through to destination in bond without inspection.
