,T. C. Young, who left Ohelsen, ia Judo last with abont 1,000 wcrth of supplies for the Klondyke gold región in Alaska, wrote a letter frotn .Tnucaii to bis brother, J. Young, of Chelsea, recently in whicb be says : "The outlook here is very gloorny. We find that there are bnndrds of people and ton of snpplies ou the bea h at Dyea, waiting to be packed over the sumrnit, and we must wait onr turn to be packed over. Tbey oornpel every one to wait nis turn. They put a fellow in the river yesterday for offeriüg more than the regulation price, whicb is $17 per 100. Aocording to the ontlook now, it will be at least two toonths before our tntn will come, and think it impossible to pack curselves soon enongh to get through this fall. Some of our party are badly discoaraged, but I have qnit olimbing mountains before I reach them, so I am going it alone to Dyea, and take my cbanoes with the rest. One thing sure, if I can 't get through this year I can the next. I started and am going. There are 14 in our crowd. Those whom you buow are W. E. Knowles, Charles L. Walters, Charles Oaks and J. H. Hamil. People are standing around in bnnches arguing the sitnation frotn every imaginable standpoint, while I am quietly writing to you."
