The ExjxritncM and Troublti of the Rrd
CUod Fortune Hunters in Alaska
as Told by One of Them
Nqmk, Alaska, Aug. 10, 11)00.
Flvo bodies wero washed ashoie yes
terdny. No communication can bo had
on account of tho tetriblo breakers.
Yes, one small row boat did venture
out to tiie Tiicoma which is anchoied
two miles fiom show. A man w! o
has been heiu all summer expected his
wife was abonwl. Ho hited two men
with a Mintll bont to go after her. It
looked almost like suicide for them to
attempt it, but money will liho men to
do anything After several unsuccess
ful vfTorts they succeeded in getting
over the lirst bleaker. Thousands on
shore watched their evrry move. After
a perilous trip they reach the ship.
The husband stands on shoro atd
watches eagctly, wondering no doubt
if she will liavo tho courage to attempt
the trip in tho frail craft. They stait
for shoro. Yes, she is in the boat. Had
sho not como twenty-llvo hundred
miles to see him and was site to be
thwarted in her itl'oit by a couple of
miles of breakers. With tho samo
spirit of heroism that actuated Grace
Darling to bravo death, and with great
courage heat back tho seemingly insur
mountable billows to save the lives of
tho shipwrecked crow, so sho would
allow no obstacle' to separate her ftom
her husband. Theto is only one way
to cross tho breakers, and that is to
keep the boat straight across tham, if
for an instant it is alio wed to get in
the trough sideways, it is swnmped im
mediately On they come; one mo
ment standing apparently on the crest
of the bicakor with not mote than one
thlid of tho litllo boat touching the
wator and sconungly undecided as to
whether it will pitch forward or back
ward, but a strong, steady, well direct
ed pull on tho oars at this critical junc
ture causes it to decide on a for wawl
movement, and dowu in tho trough it
pitches, and for a few seconds is lost to
view, anil about the tiino you have
concluded it is lost, you nro gratified
to see it mounting tho next breaker
ahead whete the same thing is repealed
again and again until tho shoro is
icached, only, asyou got nearer shoro
the breakers Increase in si.u and
power, and when they reached the last
breaker perhaps ono hundred feet ftom
shoro came tho most critical time of
tho trip. When they stood on the
crest of tho last wave tho boatman
must calculate that when ho makes
this final pitch ho must get tho boat
far enough 011 tho beach so that the
umtei current of tho receding water
will not draw it back; at that critical
moment it seemed as if I did not breatho
for livo minutes. Tho final pitch was
made; they pulled on tho oars asonlj
two tecklc s, experienced boatmen
can pull; they got within a couple of
rods of shore; tht.y sou tho unilt'icur
lent would draw them back; behind
and appioaching with fiightful rap
idity was another giant wave; if it
sti uclc them they would all be carried
out to sea and engulfed. Thoy must
decide and act at the samo time; no
vowl was spoken; tho woman didn't
even fqueal, but when tho boat had
reached the farthest point towatd
shoro and seeing in an instant it would
bo drawn back and knowing that tho
husband and hundreds wore on shore
to help gtt her out, they threw her
out in tho water and jumped out,
grabbed her by tho time sho touched it,
and tier hushau 1 was there as soon as
they nud before tho advancing wave
could reach them tluy weio ashort ;
rather 11 cool but exciting rocrpviou.
If Hi at had been my wifo I nppiehend
who would have said, "Its no farther
from shoro to tlio ship than from ship
to shore, and if hu wants to sec mo any
imoiu than I do him ho had belter come
out and sco me." A man trying to row
his boat into Snako river last night
was copBired ami drowned, I did not
see It. I am sorry that I havo wrilten
m mu jh as I wanted to sond you some
nativo poetry that I copied from tho
Nome Dally Nows I will send it and
if tho letter Is too long I would suggest
thatjou publish tho poem nud omit
the loiter as the poem describes the
mining situation heir bettet than I can.
In explanation will say tho tenderfoot
nre called "checchalkers" and tho old
miners ate called "sour dough,"
