 SINCE its discovery by Russian explorers more than 200 years ago,
Alaska has been a land  of exciting  adventure.    In  1867  Alaska
was purchased by the United States for $7,200,000.    At the turn
of the present century,  the name  Alaska and the Yukon resounded
around  the  world  in  connection  with  the  two  great  gold  rushes—■
Klondike and Nome. _—_______
Today, it is no less a land of
adventure. Vestiges of the past—
aboriginal civilizations, Russian occupation, the various "rushes"—
can be seen almost everywhere.
Seeing Alaska is exploring Alaska. There's a lot of country in
America's Land of the Midnight
Sun. Its 586,400 square miles—one-

over an area nearly one-sixth the   lates, cigars and cigarettes.
distance   around  the  world.     The
Alaska mainland is due north of
Honolulu and the Aleutian Islands
extend as far west as New Zealand.
Alaska is not a land of snow,
ice and igloos. It is in the same
latitudes a s Scotland, Norway,
Sweden and Finland. Its interior
climate is similar to that of Montana, Minnesota and Maine. The
southern coastal areas are warmed
by the same ocean currents that
pass San Francisco, Seattle and
Vancouver.
With its high mountains (Mt.
McKinley, 20,300 ft.) and mighty
rivers (Yukon, 2300 mi.), Alaska is
a land of superlatives. For the
one Yosemite of California, Alaska
has a hundred. The mountains and
glaciers of the Rockies are duplicated and a thousand-fold exceeded
in Alaska.
There is a thrill for every visitor
in the "Great Land," whether it
be tangling with a fighting rainbow trout, drinking in a Gold Rush
or watching Eskimos carve ivory
at Nome. In trackless wilds the
hunter or cameraman finds mountain sheep, moose, caribou and the
great brown bear, largest carnivore
on earth.
The Wireless Operator will accept,
at current rates, messages for shore
stations or- other vessels.
Suggestions are cordially invited,
and your criticism solicited for the
betterment of Canadian Pacific service.
With the growth of air transportation, the advent of the Alaska
Highway and increased summer
cruise ships, Alaska has become
accessible to every vacationist.
Long known as America's Last
Frontier of pioneering, Alaska is
now becoming .America's First
Frontier of play and adventure.
GOVERNMENT — Alaska has a
Territorial Legislature, composed
fo 16 senators and 24 representatives, which is elected by the people
and meets every two years. The
Governor is appointed by the President. Alaska sends a voteless
Delegate to Congress. Statehood
is   just   around   the   corner.

 Sitka Cathedral Is
Artistic Anomaly
Sitka Cathedral is unique for many
reasons. Its strange Russian tower appears delightfully exotic to the eyes
of visiting Occidentals. It stands as a
link between North America and the
old Russia of Czars. It presents
a striking contrast to the Indian totem
poles which stand within its shadow.
But, most of all, it is unque because its distinctive tower stands as
a monument to man's catholicity in
things artistic. There is a fascinating
story behind its appearance here
thousands of miles from its place of
origin and hundreds of years after its
first appearance as an artistic conception.
To Tamerlane, who came like a
whirlwind out of the limb of High
Asia, terrorizing East and West, is attributed its popularity. Tamelane, it
is said, first saw its prototype *n the
doomed city of Damascus. He had
drawings made of it before Damascus
was sacked. And subsequently, in
Samarkand, buildings with the swelling dome-shaped tower were erected
by the Tartar conqueror in honor of
Aljai, the women he loved better than
anyone else on earth.
From Samarkand, the dome-shaped
tower went to Russia, to become the
dominant motif in decoration of Russian cathedrals. Turkey, too, borrowed it and Tamerlane's descendants,
the Great Monguls of India, employed
it to adorn their finest buildings. And
in India it achieved its artistic pinnacle when incorporated into the Taj
Mahal, its sleek beauty made that
structure one of the architectural wonders of the world.
This, then, is the lineage of the
tower   on   Sitka's   Russian   cathedral.

CITIES—Alaska's largest city is
Anchorage, with a population of
20,000. The Territory's 21 incorporated municipalities have an assessed valuation of $100,000,000.
Almost all Alaskan communities
are well supplied with modern business and service establishments.
INDUSTRY—-Despite limited development during the past 8 0
years, Alaska has contributed more
than three billion dollars in natural
wealth to the nation. Production
of its chief industry, the fisheries,
now exceeds 100 million dollars
annually. Mining ranks second,
furs third and forest products
fourth. Pulp mills are expected
to boost forest products into first
position within a few years.

 History Written in
Waters of Pacific
By iNoel Robinson
• History—the story of man's struggle
up through the ages—is the most fascinating literature in the world. It is
a story of life itself, made splendid by
the records of great men who stood
out above the level of their times, as
the mountains of these West Ccast
fjords stand out above the sea and
the lowlier  plains.
And nowhere, on the whole Pacific
Coast of the Americas, have so many
great men come and gone. The keeis
of their tiny ships have written ineffaceable history in the trackless waters
of the sea through which we now
steam and, but for their indomitable
courage, your cruise ship would not
now be sailing northward into this
Ir.nd of enchantment.
Lean over the prow of your steamer
and listen to the murmur of its bow-
wave Who knows? Perhaps, if you
attune your ears properly, you may
hear the names and stories of these
gieat  men who passed  this way.

Alaska Purchase Price
Oyer Seven Million
• Alaska was first visited by the Russians in 1741, and Russian traders and
trappers soon thereafter entered the
country to obtain fur. In 1784 they
established the first settlement on Kodiak Island, and in 1804 founded
Sitka, which became the seat of government the following year.
During the 83 years that Russia occupied Alaska she obtained $45,000,-
000 worth of furs, but made little effort to develop the country. The 500
colonists were provided even with
food from Siberia. Russian rule ended in 1867 when the United States
purchased   Alaska   for  $7,200,000.
Following the Bering Sea Controversy, in 1896, a dispute arose between Alaska and Canada concerning
ownership of territory adjoining British Columbia, and was settled by arbitration' in 1903. President Roosevelt,
wishing to conserve Alaska's natural
resources, established restrictions on
exploitation. As this program worked
out the country did not progress industrially ; legislation was passed in
1914, however, which improved conditions. The completion of the Alaska
railroad in 1923 was of great importance in the development of the territory.

 Wrangell One of Oldest
Towns in Alaska
The town has within its limits one of
the best sheltered small boat harbors
in the territory. In this harbor are
floats for small boats where both light
and water are available.
Wrangell is an outfitting centre for
hunting and fishing trips into the
Cassiar area of B.C., as well as in
Southeast Alaska. Deer, black bear,
grizzly bear, and brown bear are found
in the area as well as goat, sheep and
moose on the mainland. Throughout
the sheltered waterways are innumerable lakes and streams for trout fishing as well as the commercial salmon-
fishing in salt water.
Wrangell has a very modern school
system with grades and a fully accredited high school. There is a modern, well-staffed hospital, one physician
and a government health nurse. There
are the usual stores, shops, markets,
and a leading curio store. One hotel
and a weekly newspaper.
Wrangell has a flowery history, being
one of the oldest towns in the territory (second oldest). It dates back to
the Russian fur trading post first established there in 1334. The gold
discovery along the Stikine in 1861 and
1893 precipitated two "rushes'1 to the
area. The Stikine River empties into
salt water six miles from Wrangell.
The river is navigable to Telegraph
Creek, British Columbia, and regular
boat service is available there all
summer.
Wrangell is a town of about 1500
population, with municipally - owned
water and electric light and power systems* It is situated on the northern
end bf Wrangell Island. The water is
supplied by a gravity system from a
dam in a mountain stream nearby.
Fraternal orders include the Elks
Lodge, Eastern Star, Emblem Club,
Red Men, Alaska Native Brotherhood
and Sisterhood, American Legion and
Auxiliary,   and   four   churches.
Industries consist of two shrimp canneries, two salmon canneries, one
shingle mill, two sawmills, and three
small two-man sawmills. There are two
shipyards.

These are only a few of the great

eternal struggle which life imposes

WHAT IS ANAC?
This Alaska Native Arts & Crafts clearing house (ANAC) at Juneau,
Alaska, was incorporated early in 1956 by the leading Native Crafts
Organizations throughout Alaska. ANAC is now a non-profit, marketing
co-operative, owned by the craftsmen members. The organization was.
originally sponsored by the Bureau of Indian Affairs for the purpose of
stimulating and perpetuating the crafts associated with the old Northwest Coast Culture, as well as to expand the formerly limited markets
for these arts.
From remote and isolated Eskimo and Indian villages the ivory carving,
basketry, wood carving, and skin sewing products are shipped to ANAC
where they are graded, certified with the trademark of ANAC, and
reshipped to representative gift shops.
Only arts and crafts products that have been MADE IN ALASKA
and that have been crafted BY ALEUTS, ESKIMOS, AND INDIANS
will have the registered ANAC TRADEMABK identifying them. This
trademark on a product IS your safest guide when you select a gift
or memento of your Alaskan visit. It is the Eskimo and Indian craftsman's way of assuring YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS of AUTHENTIC
WORKMANSHIP. It will help you avoid falsifications and counterfeit
souvenirs. Gift shops in almost every Alaskan town will have a good
supply of ANAC certified crafts from which you may make your
selection.

Captain Vancouver
Made Few Mistakes
Charting West Coast
By NOEL ROBINSON
• Although the story of British Columbia goes back little more than 150
years—to the time when the great
navigator, Captain James Cook, discovered and sojourned briefly at
Nootka Sound on the west coast of
what is now Vancouver Island—it is
full of colorful incident associated
with the early coastal Spanish explorations; the explorations of Mackenzie, Fraser and Thompson; the Meares
episode which nearly brought England and Spain to war; the Captain
Vancouver negotiations with the Spaniards anent that matter, and his subsequent explorations and chartings;
the vivid scenes witnessed during the
Cariboo Gold Rush and the almost as
picturesque scenes during the transcontinental   construction   period.
As the. visitor sails through the
Straits of Juan de Fuca and the Gulf
of Georgia to Victoria and Vancouver, it is however, of the intrepid and
efficient navigator, Captain George
Vancouver, after whom both the
principal island and city of the province is named, that he should think,
for British Columbia owes more to
him than to any of all the early pioneers, his splendid chart of these
difficult and island-studded waters
and hitherto unknown coast being so
accurate that only additions and few
changes have had to be made since.
Along the Trail of '98
Today By White Pass
and Yukon Route
• At the head of Lynn Canal, midst
mountain walls that terminate the sea
voyage, lies the town of Skagway—
one of the most beautifully situated
and one of the most historic spots in
all Alaska. It was here that the
hordes of goldseekers disembarked,
assembled their outfits, and set out
for the rocky jaws of White Pass and
the golden Klondyke beyond. There
is no frantic scramble now; there are
no battles with desperadoes now;
rather, a quiet town of 700 inhabitants, famous as the "Garden City"
of the North—the floral showplace
of the Territory.
The gold-seekers did not stop here;
this promise of riches came from the
vast Interior . . . and so does ours.
Beyond lies the real North Country!
In '98 men had to tramp through on
foot and carry their outfits with them.
Now we can follow their footsteps in
the utmost comfort.
The White Pass & Yukon Route
is our host. Through its transportation
system, we can penetrate the Interior

 Prince Rupert Is Nucleus
For Large City
A visitor to Prince Rupert will
find many features of interest and
willing hands to point them out.
From an aesthetic viewpoint, scenic
grandeur and Indian lore head the
list. In this northwest region of British Columbia the mountains have a
special magnificence. Many are capped by year-round glaciers, and the
brilliant ever-changing hues they assume are the delight of painters and
color photographers.
The air is pure and free from
smoke. This affords a sweeping range
of vision from the several good vantage points where the entire city and
surrounding area may be studied and
enjoyed.
One of the best of these is Roosevelt Park, named after the late President, where U.S. troops were camped
during the last war. Here one can
get a beautiful view of Prince Rupert,
its harbour, and the islands and mountains that lie beyond.
Other beauty spots include the
sunken flower gardens on the Court
House grounds and McClymont Park
through which a mountain stream
courses on its way to the ocean.
Another scenic attraction nearby is
Butze Rapids where 23-foot tides race
down- and up-hill through a narrow
pass with a roar of churning white
water that can be heard for miles.
Rich in Indian lore, the City of
Prince Rupert several years ago ob-
Points of Interest

—Within the area of this park, formerly known as Acropolis Hill, and
wartime home of thousands of American soldiers, is a large gymnasium and
sports ground. And from this eminence a fine view of the city and surrounding  country  may  be  obtained.

the city and surrounding country may

Athens,  overlooks  the  city.
In   Prince   Rupert
One of the nicest shops in Prince Rupert,
and one that should not be missed when ashore
in the British Columbia city, is The Totem
Pole Gift Shop. On Sixth Street close to the
Prince Rupert Hotel, there is a nice selection
here of souviners, handicrafts and novelties.
Mrs. Vera A. Mair, a former resident of Parksville, V.   I.,  conducts the  shop.
An interesting shop in Prince Rupert is the
Yukon Jewellers. Here you'll find such items
suitable for gifts as English bone china,
Bavarian china, totem poles and jewellery.
The shop has recently been acquired by Mrs.

is the home of the aboriginal totem-
carving native. These poles are displayed prominently in various city
parks.
The Prince Rupert Museum also
holds a rare and valuable collection
of Indian treasures and relics not
found anywhere else in the world.
The traveller is always welcome in
the Museum and a guide accompanies
all tours.
While the cold, deep waters of the
harbour discourage swimming, there
is excellent boating and sailing. In
five minutes from the centre of the
city one can be in the middle of one
of the finest fishing grounds to be
found anywhere.
For the shopper, the city's fur
stores provide a singular attraction.
Prince Rupert is in the heart of the
greatest fur-bearing area in the province.
A feature which will interest visitors is the presence of the famous
Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The
tradition of this efficient force is
bound deep in the history of the north
country.
Captain Vancouver
Continued from page 6
• Spanish Courtesy
Captain Vancouver was born in the
village of King's Lynn, Norfolk, England, voyaged twice with his brilliant
leader, Captain Cook, upon the lat-
ter's explorations, once as ab\e seaman and once as officer, and was
with him at the Sandwich Islands
when he met his death. The British
Government entrusted Vancouver
with great responsibility when they
sent him out in command of the little
340-tonner "Discovery," attended by
the armed tender "Chatham," which
had been most thoroughly outfitted,
to negotiate with the Spaniards, take
over this coast for the British, and
chart it. His lengthy negotiations at
Nootka with the handsome and courtly Spanish commander, Bodega y
Quadra (to whose courtesy he pays
fine tribute), which ultimately resulted very satisfactorily, constitute a picturesque page in British Columbian
history. A similar remark might be
applied to his dealings with two other
Spanish commanders, Don Dionisio
Galiano and Don Cayetano "Valdez,
who arrived at Burrard Inlet (the harbor of what is now the city of Vancouver) five days after the English
navigator and much to the latter's
disappointment as he thought that he
was the only explorer in those waters.
It may be mentioned that, two
centuries before, the first explorer to
sight the American continent upon
the Pacific slope had been Sir Francis
Drake in the "Golden Hynde" (or
Hind), and he it was who gave the
name of New Albion to the region of
Northern California, this name being
in vogue for generations.
Captain Vancouver, in his famous
survey of the western seaboard of
North America, named the coasts he
visited in the years 1792-93 New
Georgia, New Hanover and New
Cornwall, but these names scarcely
survived his explorations. He gave
the name Quadra and Vancouver
Island to the large island, upon which
Victoria, the capital city of British
Columbia, is situated, now known by
his name alone. British Columbia
was not so named until 1858 and its
boundaries were not fixed until 1863.

 Ketchikan Is Alaska's
"First City"
Ketchikan has long been known as
"The First City of Alaska" and the
thriving community, located on the
southwestern shore of Revillagagedo
Island in Southeastern Alaska, has
well earned the name for it is recognized as the soundest and most progressive community in all of Alaska.
The city nestles at the foot of sharply
sloping, snow clad mountains, along
the shore of beautiful Tongass Narrows
which serves as a liquid waterway for
the community. Located as it is, on
an island, all transportation to and
from the city is by plane or boat, yet
an estimated 50,000 transients pass
through the city within the course
of a year.
The 1950 census ranks the city as
fourth largest in Alaska with a population of 5,305 within the city limits
and approximately 4,000 in the adjacent area. It is the shopping center
for approximately 10,000 fishermen,
loggers, and miners from nearby
settlements.
The chief industry of the city is
based upon commercial fishing, although sport fishermen are rapidly
discovering this outdoor paradise, and
it has three large cold storage plants
which handle over 25,000,000 pounds
of fresh salmon and halibut each year.
The value of this product alone is
estimated at $20,000,000. In addition
Ketchikan is known as the salmon
canning capitol of the wrorld for more
than half a million cases of salmon
are packed each season in the numerous  canneries in the area.

Famous "Potlatches"
Are Now Extinct
• Tourists sailing along the east coast
of Vancouver Island are sailing straight
into the heart of the "potlatch" country. But they will never see a pot-
latch, search as they may. For potlatches, by decree of the Canadian government, are now forbidden.
"Potlatches" after the coming of the
whites developed into veritable orgies.
Indians plunged themselves into hopeless debt, borrowing to increase the
splendor of their potlatches. And so at
last the government outlawed these historic Indian feasts in the interests of
solvency.
Potlatches were featured by elaborate Indian dances, also competitive in
spirit.
A modern crab canning plant is
now operated there each season and
a by-products plant operates during
the summer months, In addition the
huge schools of herring appear each
winter in the waters of Tongass
Narrows just in front of the cold
storage plants and the fishermen are
finding a ready, off season market
for frozen herring which are used for
bait,  oil,  and  fish  meal.
Although Ketchikan is rapidly entering an era of industrial development
in connection writh the wonderful
timber stands in the area it is generally
conceded that fishing will remain its
major industry for many years to come.

 Will Rogers Said:
• "Nothing that I have ever
seen is more beautiful than this
Inland Passage (by either boat
or plane) to Alaska." Will Rogers penned these words in
Alaska a few days before he
crashed to his death with Wiley
Post, after he had flown northward on yet another of his
jaunts about the world. Few
men, in modem times, have
seen more of the beauties of
the world than Will Rogers,
and few writers have left as
extensive an account of their
appreciation. And so, when
Will Rogers said "nothing that
I have ever seen is more beautiful than this Inland Passage"
it is a truly great tribute. It is
through this Inland Passage, so
generously praised by Will
Rogers, that you tourists aboard
this ship are now steaming
northward to Alaska.

Legend of the
Totem Pole
Totem Poles are only found among
the Indian tribes of Southeastern
Alaska and the North Coast of British
Columbia. Particularly the Hydas, inhabiting Queen Charlotte and Prince
of Wales Islands, excelled in the carving of Totems. In their villages can
still be found Totem Poles up to eighty
feet in height, some of them hundreds
of years old.
Before the advent of the whites the
different Indian Chiefs were known
among their people by the skill in
which they excelled in hunting a particular animal. They also believed that
the human intelligence transmigrated
into wild animals, fish or birds. The
clan of the mighty bear hunter were
therefore known as bears, of a whale
hunter as whales, etc., each family of
Indians representing bird, animal or
fish.
The grotesque figures with which the
poles are covered, and which represent
whales, eagles, ravens, bears, beavers,
wolves, frogs, and Indian faces, demonstrate to them the intermarriage of
different families.
Totem Poles were also erected in
commemoration of important events of
peace and war.
All Totem Poles were regarded by
the natives with semi-idolatry.
SAXMAN INDIAN VILLAGE—Old
Indian village of the South Tongass
Highway. Site of famous forest totems.
Also Chief Kaske's Totem. May be

Fair building, wading and fish pools

night fountain is transformed into a
fantasy of colored lights and a popular
inspiration for Kodachrome enthusiasts.
In late summer salmon may be seen
struggling up fish ladder of Ketchikan
Falls. By continuing walk across
bridge following Deermont Avenue,
Mahoney Heights Indian School may
be reached. Here totem poles, baskets and moccasins may be purchased.
DEER MOUNTAIN, altitude 3,025
feet. {Caution, stay on the trail!) —
Cars may be parked near City Park a.t
north end of Deermont Avenue to begin this famous hike. Modified by
many switchbacks, ascent is quite mild.
Numerous open points allow view of
Tongass Narrows, Saxman Village and
City of Ketchikan. Total hike extends
over three and a half miles reaching
an elevation to 3,000 feet. Ski enthusiasts use its 2% milejypen runs during
season. Open meadows during the
summer months, a fairyland of blooms.
Note: All hikers are required to stay
on the trail, as there have been several instances of individuals requiring
the aid of searching parties after straying  from  the regular paths.

Frank Reid Died to Save "Honor of Skagway"
Gold Camp Days . . . Reid's Courage ... His Epitaph
QKAGWAY visitors of today, visiting
-•' the quiet, business-like little city
will perhaps find difficulty in visualizing it as a town of roaring saloons,
dance halls and gambling joints as all
gold-rush towns are inevitably depicted.
But Skagway was all too familiar with
this phase of mining activities at one
time—as the story of "Soapy" Smith
indicates.
"Soapy," affable, adroit, insinuating
a perfect type of "con" man, first came
to Skagway in the late 90's. His arrival at Skagway was not exactly voluntary. For "Soapy" had left Wrangell
only a short time before—on invitation
of   police.
He earned his sobriquet through his
practise of selling cakes of soap
wrapped in $1 or $5 bills—a "come-on"
gesture which lured victims into
Soapy's web. And, once they were
enmeshed, Soapy relieved them of
everything   they   possessed,   by   divers
methods—crooked cards, loaded dice;
or plain or fancy larceny as a last
resort.
Now, in the days when Soapy was
flourishing as the green bay tree of
Scripture, one J.   D. Stewart, of Daw
son, arrived in town on his way "outside." Stewart had a big poke of
gold. But he fell into Soapy's clutches
and his gold disappeared. But Stewart, a determined individual, decided
that he would not submit to robbery.
A law and order meeting was called to
deal with Soapy and his  gang.
While the meeting was being held,
Frank Reid, a government surveyor,
was detailed to stand guard. Soapy
and his followers heard of the meeting
and decided to break it up. They
descended upon the meeting place,
heavily armed; but there they encountered Reid. Soapy swung his rifle at
Reid, but Reid, catching it with his
left hand, drew his revolver and tried
to fire. The weapon missed; Soapy
wrested his rifle from Reid's grasp,
and shot him. But Reid, too, managed
to fire just as he was going down, and
Reid  and  Soapy both  fell  dead.
That encounter marked the end of
mob law in Skagway. And Reid was
buried in "Boots On" cemetery behind
the town, under an inscription: "He
died to save the honor of Skagway."

•    SKAGWAY    •
by means of railway trains, with courteous employees always at hand to
give us every attention.
Carcross Tour
This is a rail trip designed particularly to offer tourists, on steamers which remain in Skagway for one
day, an opportunity to view some of
the   beauties  of  this  remote  region.
This new Klondyke trail of steel
closely follows the old trail. For the
first twenty miles the train climbs
steadily to the summit of White Pass
at an elevation of 2,885 feet—sometimes, skirts the cliffs of the Pass.
Glaciers peer down from their granite
cradles, seemingly, to hang in midair, and beautiful waterfalls thunder
from the heights to the gorges below.
The train moves upwards beyond the
timber line . . . past clumps of stunted hemlock and tamarack . . . past
sturdy mosses and heathers . . . and
through scenes of wild, rocky grandeur. We are forced to admire the
courage and strength of the men who
shoved their way through this wilderness. Occasional glimpses of the
deep-worn trail, remind us of those
days which are gone*
Line Enters Canada
At the Summit we come to the International Boundary which announces that we are entering upper
British Columbia. And 32 miles beyond—near Pennington Station—we
come to Yukon Territory. From here
we follow the great water system of
streams and lakes which drain into
the Yukon River. Twenty miles from
the Summit, the train arrives at Lake
Bennett. It was here that the stam-
peders from both the White Pass and
the still more arduous Chilkoot Pass
(to the westward) joined forces, constructed their weird flotilla, and continued by lakes and rivers to the
goldfields. The train follows this lovely mountain lake to Carcross where
you have 25 minutes for sightseeing,
buying souvenirs, etc., while your
train is being turned around. On the
return trip to Skagway a short stop
is made at Inspiration Point, truly a
magnificent view of the Saw Tooth
Mountain range, glacier-topped Mount
Pinnacle and Lynn Canal 17 miles
to the south by rail.
For passengers traveling one way
on ocean steamers, there is daily rail
service between Skagway and Whitehorse.
In tomorrow's Shipboard Travel
Magazine, we will tell you more
about this thrillingly interesting trip
from Skagway to  the  Interior.

 Petersburg
PETERSBURG is in the heart of
■*- the Tongass National Forest and
situated on Mitkof Island at the north
end of picturesque Wrangell Narrows.
It was founded by and named after
Peter Buschman who arrived in 1897
and built a salmon cannery and sawmill. Petersburg was incorporated in
1910 and has shown a slow but
steady growth. Population today exceeds 1600.
When your cruise ship enters
Petersburg's beautiful harbor, the
masts of scores of fishing boats stand
out against a compact, neat city at
the foot of gigantic snow-capped
mountains. There are three salmon
canneries, two large cold storage
plants and two shellfish operations.
All welcome visitors.
Famous "Salmon Ladder"
Along the Mitkof Highway approximately 12 miles from town is the
recently completed Fall Creek Fish
Ladder^ the first of its kind in
Alaska. Salmon climb the ladder to
reach their spawning waters and it is
expected to materially aid future coho
and silver salmon runs. The project
cost $200,000.
Also on the Mitkof Highway is the
Territorial Experimental Fur Farm,
where experiments are conducted in
conjunction with fur'farming in this
and other parts of Alaska. Visitors
are  welcome.
Icebergs floating in the bay may be
photographed from the road. Sunsets
are especially vivid and afford camera
enthusiasts excellent opportunities.
Petersburg public schools include a
grade and accredited high school,
with a total enrollment of 360. The
high school building includes a Civic
Auditorium for community use, seating 500.
Wrangell First Settled
More Than Century Ago
Wrangell, second oldest town in
Southeastern Alaska, was christened
Fort Dionysius by its Russian founder,
Lieutenant Dionysius Zarembo. The
original settlement was made in 1833
to further the Russian fur trade and
to guard the rich Stikine valley.
Later the Hudson's Bay company
negotiated a lease for the mainland
from Portland canal to Cape Spencer.
The outpost was renamed Fort Stikine,
and for more than 20 years was the
center of British fur-trading activities.
When the United States purchased the
Territory, it was renamed Wrangell.
During the period of Russian and
British occupancy, the famous Indian
chiefs "Shakes" and "Kadashan" were
prominent and their totems and tribal
relics may still be seen at Wrangell.
Gold was discovered on the Stikine
by Buck Choquette in 1861. The next
year hundreds of prospectors passed
through Stikine village (Wrangell) on
the way up river to the new diggings.
In 1872 a new discovery in the fabulous Cassair country brought another
horde of gold-seekers through Wrangell, and the town boomed. In a few
years this golden stream declined and
men left for other fields. However,
this was not the last gold rush through
Wrangell for in 1898 thousands of
prospectors began their long journey
to the Klondike at Wrangell, over the
Stikine and Teslin trails.
Climate is mild and wet. Winter
temperatures very seldom drop below-
zero; summer temperatures fluctuate
between 60 and 75 degrees. Annual
precipitation averages 105 inches.

vey in 1892, for its superintendent, T.
C.  Mendenhall.

May you enjoy your visit
and take home authentic
Alaskan handicrafts to treasure!
WHEN YOU SHOP FOR ARTS AND CRAFTS
LOOK FOR THIS MARK
It will assure you of authentic

WHAT IS ANAC?
This Alaska Native Arts & Crafts clearing house (ANAC) at Juneau,
Alaska, was incorporated early in 1956 by the leading Native Crafts
Organizations throughout Alaska. ANAC is now a non-profit, marketing
co-operative, owned by the craftsmen members. The organization was.
originally sponsored by the Bureau of Indian Affairs for the purpose of
stimulating and perpetuating the crafts associated with the old Northwest Coast Culture, as well as to expand the formerly limited markets
for these arts.
From remote and isolated Eskimo and Indian villages the ivory carving,
basketry, wood carving, and skin sewing products are shipped to ANAC
where they are graded, certified with the trademark of ANAC, and
reshipped to representative gift shops.
Only arts and crafts products that have been MADE IN ALASKA
and that have been crafted BY ALEUTS, ESKIMOS, AND INDIANS
will have the registered ANAC TRADEMARK identifying them. This
trademark on a product IS your safest guide when you select a gift
or memento of your Alaskan visit. It is the Eskimo and Indian craftsman's way of assuring YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS of AUTHENTIC
WORKMANSHIP. It will help you avoid falsifications and counterfeit
souvenirs. Gift shops in almost every Alaskan town will have a good
supply of ANAC certified crafts from which you may make your
selection.

Skagway, northern terminus of your Alaska cruise ship, and looking
southward down beautiful Lynn Canal.
Skagway is Gateway
To Interior
Skagway is the end of the sea-voyage,
of the Inside Passage, but to turn back
at Skagway is like knocking at a door
and running away. You will realize
that when you go ashore and from the
streets of Skagway look up the long
fissure of White Pass. For the sake
of the old wild stories of the days that
were, you will perhaps want to see
the grave of "Soapy" Smith. The original wooden memorial at the place
some morbid curio-hunter carred off;
a later stone one was chipped by
others, filching flakes of it as souvenirs.
Other souvenirs, even if intangible,
you may prefer—a memory of a murmur, like that in a shell held to the
ear; of a mountain torrent that gushes
from a rock above the town as if
Aaron had smitten it with his rod;
memories also of austere ranges that
encircle the place. Blue are the shadows in the creases of the peaks. And
the white glitter of high wedges of
snow and glacier fronts is tinged with
a drift of mauve. There is color here.
There are gardens here.
The long days of summer make them
glorious. The, pansies grow three and
One-half inches in diameter and nasturtium vines grow three inches in 24
hours. Here is summer, but a summer
that is not wilting. You can sleep
o'nights. Yet—as was already noted
—to go to Skagway and turn back, is
like knocking at a door and running
away. Skagway is voyage's end to be
sure, but as surely is it journey's beginning.
American administration of the Territory dates from March 30, 1867, when
Edward R. Morrow
Talks About Alaska
(The following is the text of a recent
broadcast by the noted correspondent,
Mr. Edward R. Morrow, and published here by special permission.)
This is Alaska—twice as large as
Texas, There's a glacier up here that's
larger than the whole state of Rhode
Island. Fishing is the country's largest
industry. One-fourth of the population
work at it. Almost the entire civilian
population of Alaska, 129,000 could
be seated in Chicago's Soldier's Field.
This is good country to fly over, but
no good for walking. The Alaskan
shoreline is longer than that of the
continental United States. This country is a strange mixture of the old and
new—dogsleds and airplanes—a country compounded of truth and fable,
a hard, rough country of great beauty,
where there are no snakes. It's a
growing country. Anchorage, (from
where Mr. Morrow was speaking) is
an example. In 1940 the population
was 3,000; in '48, it was about 20,-
000; and now the Anchorage area has
close to 50,000 people. There is a car
Continued  on  Page   7
Skagway Has Little Rain
e Normal precipitation at Skagway is
27 inches annually; very light compared to other coastal cities, either in
Alaska, Canada or in the States. The
temperature is even throughout the
year with an average summer normal
of 56 degrees and a yearly average of
41 degrees.

are high and so are prices Almost
everything is shipped in from-^Seattle.
Bread is 40c a loaf, milk 50c quart, a
haircut $2.50. The bars are still here.
Someone started to count them the
other day and got to about 80 in a
four-block street and then gave up.
There's an old saying that if you put
a roof over the main street of Anchorage you'd have the longest bar in the
world.
This is the Wall Street of the last
frontier, a boom town with a future.
Wages are high, about $3.50 an hour
for skilled workers. This could become a sort of aerial Chicago, hub for
the air transport in this whole area.
We bought this whole country from
the Russians for little more than seven
million dollars, and there was a great
row in Congress about that. The price
came to about 20c an acre, and for
some of these acres that was too
much. But to 1940, we had taken out
about two and a half billion dollars
in natural resources. This year and
next, the armed forces will spend 158
million for military construction, 23
times the original purchase prices. The
fur export alone is equal to the purchase price each year. But it's the
military that matters up here right
now. They've been here a long time,
making maps, setting up observation
stations, charting waterways and
maintaining communications. But it
was in 1940 that we realized the
strategic importance of Alaska, and
we've come to appreciate it more and
more as the range of planes and the
power of bombs increased. This is
our outer bastion. From here our aircraft can scan the North Pacific and
the Bering Sea; the great circle routes
connecting Aisia and the United States
pass pretty well through the middle of
Alaska. There are places where we
can look across the ice to Russian-
held territory. There was a time when
it was estimated that the Russians
could take Alaska with a couple of
airborne divisions, but that's no longer true. It's from up here that we
would defend Seattle, Minneapolis,
and Detroit and Chicago from attacks
over the top. Our last frontier has become our first line of defense.
Population of Alaska
Alaska population, 1950 census, is
94,381, of which number about one-
half are European descent.
In Alaska the average number of
inhabitants per square miles is one-
tenth of one; in the United States it
is 41.3.
Here at Elmendorf Air Force base,
at Adak, at Ladd Field near Fairbanks, jet planes stand on the ready
line 24 hours a day. The anti-aircraft
guns are always manned; radar scans
the sky. This Alaska Command is no
picnic. Much of the trouble comes
from the weather. There is a very
poor rail and road net. The troops
operate at the end of a long supply
line. It's not easy to move mechanized
equipment through the snows of winter and the foggy surfaces of the summer. Naval operations are handicapped
by frozen ports in the north and the
lack ot good harbors and docking
facilities. The Air Force must always
fight the weather. The whole process
of keeping men and machines operational in sub-zero weather is the
subject of constant experimentation
and study, and the problems are being
whipped. The nerve centre of our
defense is here near Anchorage.
It is, of course, a military fact that
Alaska could be .attacked, but so could
Siberia. It is also a fact that Seattle,
Minneapolis, Chicago and our other
great cities can be bombed, but bombers can fly both ways. In this best of
all possible worlds, anything is possible. But when we come down to the
probable, the importance of Alaska becomes obvious. It would be an ideal
base from which the Russians could
launch their air attacks against the
country. For that reason alone, it must
be secured and retained. Alaska is the
western anchor of our air defense
against any attacks that may come at
us across the North Pole area, and it
provides us with a base for counterattack and a fighting outpost and observation point from which we can
patrol our frontier. Everytime the Russians look at a map of Alaska, they
must regret the deal, when they sold
it for a little more than $7 million.
We are leaving in a few minutes for
the dreary, windy little island of
Shemya, eight hours' flying time,
down to the tip of the Aleutian Islands.

 Russia Barred British
In Southern Alaska
If it had not been for a stubborn
czar, Britian's Union Jack might today be flying over the towns of Sitka
Wrangell and Ketchikan.
On the other hand, the province of
British Columbia might have been
part of Alaska, Washington, or a territory of the state of Oregon.
As it was negotiators for the czar
stuck to their guns during discussions
of the Anglo-Russian treaty from 1822
to 1825, and when the Territory was
purchased in 1867 by the United
States there had been few changes in
its boundaries.
• Interesting History
The history of that treaty is interesting. The government of the czar
had from time to time by ukase asserted exclusive jurisdiction over the
coast lands and waters of Alaska, to
prevent any encroachment by the
Hudson's Bay company upon the monopoly of the Russian-Amercian fur
company, which had established its
stations and carried on its trade in
the islands and along the coast of
Alaska extending northward from the
Portland canal.
Disputes arose, and in an attempt
to settle them, negotiations were begun which led to eventual signing of
the treaty in 1825.
The purpose of Russia in the negotiations was completely to shut out
Britain from the cost and waters in
which the Russian company was carrying on its commence. The aim of
Great Britain was to secure a foothold upon the coast for the Hudson's
Bay company to establish its station—
the very thing Russia sought to prevent.
Britain feared the United States*
would insist upon retaining posession
of the whole Oregon Territory up to
the Russian line at the historic 54°
50' mark. That would have shut off
Canada from the Pacific coast entirely.
• Russians Stubborn
The British first asked to have the
boundary line drawn straight down
the 141st meridian to the sea at Mount
Saint Elias, depriving Russia of the
Panhandle and causing her to relinquish Sitaka, the colonial capital. The
move  was  rejected by  the  Russians.
After considerable discussion, the
British proposed Clarence strait and
the Stikine river as the boundary,
leaving Prince of Wales island to
Russia, but giving her the islands of
Beautiful Lynn Canal from Dyea
Road, near Skagway. Your cruise
ship sails through Lynn Canal to
reach Skagway.
Wrangell and Revilla-Gigedo. The
Russians were as stubborn then as now
about the proposal.
From first to last the inflexible
Russian contention was for posession
of an unbroken strip of coast from Mt.
St. Elias to the Portland canal, and
they won on this point as on all
others.
Citizens of Sitka, Wrangell and
Ketchikan thus have the Russians to
thank for keeping their communities
as a part of Alaska.
Antiques to be Found
In Skagway Stores
Among the antiques to be found in
visits to the principal curio stores in
Skagway is a nest of camphor wood
chests, sizing from a small trunk
down to a fairly small box. These
camphor wood chests were made in
China, covered with pigskin and then
with flower and scroll designs. They
were brought to Alaska during the
period when Baranof flourished for
the then thriving fur trade.
They were especially designed for
the Indian trade, for whichever chest
the Indian was able to fill with otter
skins   was   presented  to   him   as   his

 Noted Painter of North
Two Decades in Alaska
• Sidney Laurence's paintings
of the Northland carry the
color and the touch of the artist who loves and knows his
subject to all the little intimate
details that make for depth and
understanding.
The artist had already won
fame for himself in England
and France with his marine
studies before going to Alaska.
He then laid his brush aside
for twenty years and lived in
Alaska as railroad-laborer, prospector and gold-miner. It is
this wealth of experience that
is felt in his portrayals of
Alaskan scenes.
"Mt. McKinley," the vicinity
of his Alaskan sojourn, is one
of his most famous pictures.
The original hangs in the National Art Gallery in Washington, D.C. "Northern Lights" is
another of his best known
works.
Mr. Laurence studied in New
York, Paris and Rome. Exhibited his first pictures in the
National Academy of Design,

Did You Know?
THAT since 1867 Alaska has shipped a total of more than three and a
half billion dollars worth of furs,
minerals, canned salmon and other
materials to the United States, representing an amount 486 times greater
than was paid to Russia at the time
of purchase?
THAT 57% of Alaska's population
is white, 12% Eskimo, 11% Indian,
16% military, 3% Aleut and the other
1% Negro and others?
THAT the total amount of power
installation in the territory is now
40,000 KW?
Geologically   Interesting
Extinct animals roamed Alaska until
about 12,000 years ago, Dr. Troy L.
Pewe of the Geological Survey in
Fairbanks, Alaska, reported to the
Fourth Alaska Science Conference in
Juneau.
There were two glacial, or cold,
periods, separated by a warm period
in the Wisconsin age, which started
about 100,000 years ago, his studies
using radioactive carbon dating have
shown. During each of the three
periods, the last of which ended at
least 12,000 years ago, the now-extinct animals, such as mammoths,
mastodons and bison, lived "in abundance," Dr. Pewe reported to the
conference.
The plants in Alaska during the
central warm period were the same
as found today. It was also, Dr. Pewe
believes, "a favorable time for existence of man in Alaska."
Many geologists have thought that
the climate during the glacial period
was too severe for animals, and that
they died off then, but raidocarbon
dating methods have'shown that the
mammoth, mastodon and bison survived the last glacial period of the
Wisconsin age before becoming extinct.
Alaska's mountains were formed
and its placer gold laid down in the
period from about a million years ago
to about 100,000 years ago.
Science News Letter.
THAT the only tin mine in the
United States is located on the Seward Peninsula in Northwestern Alaska, producing from 2 to 21/2 tons of
tin annually?
THAT the normal output of coal
along the railbelt is around 450,000
tons annually and the present expansion program is expected to reach
1,500,000 tons next year?
THAT since 1940 the amount of
defense spending in the territory has
averaged $114,300,000 every year, for
a total of $1,486,000,000?

Accommodations
From June to October when
travel to and from Alaska is at
a peak, there is an acute shortage of hotel accommodation in
most Alaskan cities and travellers intending to stay at hotels
in Alaska would be well advised
to make their Reservations from
their ship to ensure accommodation. Consult the advertising

 Mendenhall Glacier Trip
Is Scenic Wonder
The motor ride to Mendenhall Glacier gives you a real taste of scenic
wonder in the Northland, and with
shopping time to spare. Mendenhall
was so named by the Coast Survey in
1892 for its superintendent, T. C. Mendenhall.
The ice waste has a bluish t^uge,
markedly so in early morning light.
The ever-changing aspects of this glacier are readily recognized when viewing the different approaches that have
been made by visitors in the short period of years. The path now taken to
the foot of the glacier over the little
bridge is a very easy one, but high
above, over bare, treacherous rock, is
a little footpath that climbs steadily
up. A little handrail on the cliff side
is one's only protection.
These pathways have changed with
the changing of the glacier field until now one is able to walk quite comfortably on the level past the pre-gla-
cier stump to the foot of the ice.
On the route one- sees the "herron
pot." Here tons of herron are staked
out in the net with a ship in attendance. Fish boats come up to buy bait
before going out. For camera fans
this is a fine picture, for the staked
net is well marked, and there are usually little boats on the scene, which
makes  for  an  attractive  snap.
Unique  Exhibits
To Be Seen in Juneau
This section of Alaska was first explored by the navigator, Captain
Vancouver, in 1794. Juneau was
named after the French-Canadian
who first discovered placer gold there
in the early 80's. One of the gates
through which rushers streamed into
the north, the town has survived the
slump in gold production and has
built a civilization of its own, based
upon Arctic tradition. In the Arctic
Brotherhood hall is a unique museum
showing valuable curios; a lamp
carved in stone; old Chinese talisman
coins; queer trinkets; skeletons of
early settlers; and age-old carved
ivory and Indian relics.
Among interesting short trips in
the vicinity .are Mendenhall Glacier
and Auk Lake; the site of Joe Juneau's first strike in Gold Creek Basin;
and Thane and Douglas, where in
other days were the largest low-grade
gold-crushing plants  in the world.
LARGEST Tlingit Indian Totem carved for
some years. Willie Marks, Douglas Island,
was the carver. Totem is 17y2' high with
111/2' wing.
Largest   Totem
One of the largest Tlingit Indian
totems to be carved for resale in
many years was shipped this May
from Juneau to the Totem Wholesale
Hardware Company in Seattle. Carved by Willie Marks, a 54-year-old
Tlingit Indian residing on Douglas
Island, across Gastineau Channel from
the city of Juneau. Total height of
totem is 17V£" feet with an IIV2
foot  wing.
The red cedar totem log was
brought by a storm and high tide
onto the beach in front of the Mark's
home on Douglas Island. Carving
the totem took two months. It required 12 men to laboriously pack
the main body of the totem up the
Mark's trail to a waiting truck. The
large wing, a small set of wings, and
the three-foot beak of the Eagle were
transported separately*
Alaska  was   given  civic   government
in  1889.
Leather Carving Hobby
Wins Fame
It is said, "Happy is the man who has a
hobby." By this token Buck Weaver of Harbor
Leather must be the happy man of Juneau, for
he has followed his hobby of leather carving all
his life, all over the world! Now retired, he works
at his hobby! Not only that, he does much of
the hunting to get the hides to tan the skins,
to manufacture the articles. That is just how
unique  is  his  leather  shop  in  Juneau!
It all began in Nome where Mr. Weaver
was born. Here his father had a gold mine.
His father also had a cattle ranch in Texas,
which   supported   the   gold   mine!
On his father's ranch was an old Spanish
leather carver, and between the old Spaniard
initiating Buck into the intricacies of a sharp
knife and a bit of leather in Texas, and the
Eskimos teaching him dexterity with harpoon
in Nome, a little boy's pastime became a
pursuit.

Gold Rush Days of '97 of the stream

peders.
Intriguing Relics in
Pullen House
One of the most popular calls made by
tourists and friends visiting Skagway is at
Pullen   House.
A curio room of Skagway by-gone days filled with relics of the gambling halls of that
time and other antiques creates quite an interest. Here may be seen the first music box
manufactured in the U.S.A. by Sherman Clay
& Co., San Francisco. Also the first typewriter used in Skagway, property of the land
office.
There are many beautiful pictures in lofty
ceiling Pullen House, but one that especially
claims attention and sympathy is a scene
burnt on leather, entitled "The Reclamation."
It is a winter scene of a deserted cabin
in a clearing almost at the foot of a mountain. The snow is heavy, the trees laden, and
the pale full moon of winter is rising oyer
the tops of the trees . . . and there, breaking
frail is a huge antlered moose returning once
again to his own domain.

Miners' Gold Nuggets
Worn in Chain by
Gambler
9 An interesting and valuable reminder in
keeping with the times tand the country is the
nugget chain of "Pat Renwick," famed gambler.
It may be seen in the show window of Kirmse's
Curio    Shop,    Skagway.
Pat was a faro dealer and won the nuggets
from miners in from Dawson City during the
Gold Rush Days of '98. Ambitious to be the
Diamond Jim Brady of Alaska, Pat had the
large nuggets linked together by the original
jeweler in Skagway, father of the present
proprietor cf  Kirmse's  store.
The gambler wore this heavy memento of
his luck ... on a bright red vest, dressing
himself in a checker suit, plus stove-pipe hat.
When feeling especially opulent he used to
hang ten and twenty-dollar gold pieces on the
links.
Also shown above is a chain of the smallest
nuggets in the world strung together. Length
of the strong is 55 incshes with nearly 300
nuggets   in   it.

 Juneau
• Named for Joe Juneau, who, in company with Richard Harris, prospected
the present site for gold in the autumn
of 1880. Was first called Harrisburg.
In 1880 Juneau went up a large stream
in the Silver Bow Basin where they
discovered some rich gold quartz. Within a few months, people from Sitka
and vicinity crowded the new diggings.
A year after this discovery, quartz
locations were made on Douglas Island,
immediately across the Channel, and
the famous Treadwell mine began operation. This mine operated for 36
years and produced some $66,000,000
prior to the unfortunate cave-in in 1917,
giving some $27,000,00Q to the stockholders in dividends. Juneau was
made the capital in 1900, but the executive office was not removed from
Sitka until 1906.
Equable Climate
The most striking feature of the climate in and around Juneau is the
slight variability of temperature. This
is also true of practically all Southeastern Alaska. The following facts,
taken from the official records of the
U.S. Weather Bureau, are sure to be
of interest. July is the warmest month
with an average of 56.6 degrees above
zero. January's average of 27.7 degrees above zero makes it the coldest
month. Juneau has an average of
one day a year of sub-zero temperature.
