O ne of the worst fir e s , however, is the one s t i l l raging up the Klondike. This fire started at a point near the SanjSoucey Hay ranch and has fanned eastwards, mostly on the le f t hand side of the IQondike• For a time th is conflagration came close to damaging the company*s power lin e . Accord­ ing to some observers th is brush blaze has covered from fifte en to twenty m iles. For­ tunately the prevailing wind has been keep­ ing i t veering away from the Klondike but it crossed the main road to the North Fork at several points. O ne o f the Government road camps up the Klondike was completely burned out by th is bush fir e . M IN E R L O SE S C A BIN ,-G R U B - Osoar M iller, well known individual miner was hard h it by th is sam e* fire when i t overran his prop­ erty on Goring Creek, tributary of the Kl­ ondike, destroying his cabin and a -year's supply of grub and supplies. / The fire is burning deeply into the moss and i t make take a long time before the flames subside completely. F R O M M A Y O A N D O T H E R parts of the country also comes the word that damaging forest fir e s are cutting a wide swath. Several weeks ago many gigantio bush fire s caused a.great deal o f damage and destruction in interior Alaska. Early Friday morning a muoh-neodod rain storm h it tho Dawson V alle y and consider­ ably cleared up the atmosphere lo c a lly . W hat is rea lly needed, however, is ; about a week's solid rain to completely quenoh tho numerous forest fir e s in the d istr ic t. Friday morning's rain was not a heavy one by any means but i t brought a welcome, i f only temporary, drop in the sizzlin g tem­ peratures of recently.

That's the picture of the new world after the Nazis and Japs have been defeated, as seen through the eyes of an intrepid, resourceful young Edmonton aviation pioneer, Grant McConach­ ie , geheral manager-, for C.P* A irlines, Ltd., Western Division, according to Jack DeLong of the Edmonton B ulletin, following a recent in t­ erview with the Canadian f lie r . McConachie (The Bulletin story goes on) pion­ eered the sky route to Alaska whioh is now prov­ ing of tremenduous strategic importance in the greatest war in history. McConachie is no idle dreamer* -In predicting a great new role for the airplane after victory is won, he in sists is being-very, conservative. . . The passenger airlin er of the post-war years w ill operating range of 4,000 miles or more,' McConachie believes,'and w ill be powered by four engines developing 10,000 horsepower. They w ill have pressurized, insulated cabinsto insure comfort and safety in high altitu d es. Flying in the stratosphere w ill m ake i t poss­ ible to escape 95$ of the storms that menace the comfort and safety of passengers at the lower levels.. . From a busines standpoint, countries that f a il to develop their aviation w ill be le f t be­ hind, McConachie b elieves. Canada, which always has been ,tp the fore in this respect, should occupy a more important place than ever in world a ffa irs after the war. ” A country w ill have to be prominent in aviation .to hold leadership after the war, M c­ Conachie concluded. C O M P U L S O R Y T R A IN IN G N O T IC E S R E C E IV E D L O C A L L Y Notice to report for compulsory m ilitary training has been received by quite a few ' young men in the Yukon Territory who come A within the age lim it and necessary q u alific­ ations in th is category. A number of young men in th is d istr ict have received these notices by registered mail recently. Naturally, as i t is a long and expensive trip from Dawson to the coast, the nearest training centre,, there is considerable speculation as to the proceedure. Mbst of those affected would have to leave their present jobs in order to t go to the coast. For those engaged in seasonal work, i.e. - during the sum m er months, such a trip would p ractically eliminate •any further W ork for them-this sum m er season. • • It is conjectured that the time lim it for those affected in Yukon may bo put ahead un til the end of the season or that, maybe, a train ­ ing centre might be established somewhere hero in the -North. . €- r ,' . . .

The r a il lin e did a good business for aw h ile as there we re thousands of people on on Old Bonanza in those cays. But as miners and their fam ilies and others began to d rift away, Bonanza soon became only a ghost of it s former, hectic se lf andj as'the famous old gold creek became more and more des­ erted, the train soon languished and died. W e .remember one sum m er - i t was the year of the smallpox epidemic in Dawson when, tho pest houses were located on Jackson Gulch. The year must have been around 1910 but of that w e * re not sure. At any rate a:certain family liv ed at the mouth of Bonanza and, as there wore several children in the -fam­ ily , i t was .decided safer that they shouldv move farther up Bonanza as the ! ; pox waggon" went by very d o se to the house. Tlie family moved up the creek and lived that sum m er in a cabin on the right hand side of the creek, noar where the railroad passed. In fact the house was just a short distance above the tracks. ‘ O ne day the train was coming back to town with a string of fla t oars. A 'small g ir l, only 18 months old, of the aforementioned family, was ju st learning to walk and , un- no t'iobd by her parents or the other child-’ ron, made her way down towards the tracks. Tho grass was fairly.h igh along the r a il bod-but, as the trail!' puffed down the lin o , "Dad” Ainsley, the conductor, thought ho spied something moving In the grass.; At . f ir s t he thought i t was. just, a bird but as he neared the spot ho saw, to his horror, that i t was a baby. Quickly he signalled to the engineer in the cab but tho train , which was coming down the creek backwards, was nearly on top of the child. ,r Dad, ? Ainsiey swung down from the fir s t fla t car, scooped up the child while holding his balance with his other arm. T ho l i t t l e .g i r l has a bruise on her head and was covered with grease and o il but sho was otherwise uninjured. H ad i t not been for ”Dad” Ainsie y rho would have boon k ille d .

D A N C E ENJO YED: The only scheduled a ttr a c t­ ion for the Dominion Day holiday was the danoe held th at evening at Eagle H al l . There was, however, only a small crowd in atten d ­ ance and those who did atten d , came la t e , which, o f cou rse, was to be expected for a summer daylight dance. D espite the small cr­ owd, everyone there had a fin e tim e. Music fo r the a ffa ir was provided by Miss Soloway D ines, piano, Grant Sutherland, drums, and Geo.

T he salmon run has started and several fine specimens have been cought and brought to the Dawson market th is past week. FIR E1EED - A Yukon sum m er wouldn't seem quite natural without the usual crop of fir e - weed. If there's a wildflcwor in the North more typical of the country than firewood, it 's hard to find. This t a l l , trembling,pink­ ish flowor grows in profusion on a ll the h ills and valley b e d fact it grows everywhorc. Sometimes, driving along a road, or hiking in the h ills , the sight of a sea of firewood on an opposite h ill or mountain gives one the impression of a big forresfc fire.- With.the fireweed now in bloom, the native berries of the country w ill soon bo ripening and ready for hom o consumption. A few v a rieties arc already being gathered. T A X U P P E D - The W ar Tax on a ll travel tic k ­ ets has been upped from 10fo to 15^.

Dawson Subscription • Service, Ltd., of Toronto in .which several interesting facts are printed relative to magazine and periodical subscriptions. Y - It is rumored that the paper shortage may become so acute that some publishers m ay bo forced to accept only renewal subscript­ ions. Y - In view of the Price Ceiling on mag­ azines in Canada, i t is expeoted that a number of publications w ill discontinue long term subs to Canada and only accept one year subscriptions. Y - The paper situation has forced a number of publishers to cut subs at expiration and not send one copy over that date. This means that renewal subscriptions arc now in tho same class as a new order and should be ren­ ewed at least one month in advance. Y - Subs' to Liberty Magazine w ill take at le a st six weeks to s t a r t ----new or renewal. Y - T he draft has caught up with the pub­ lish in g business, too, so complaints arc bound to ensue as new members join the staffs of publishing houses to replace those now in tho armed forces.

M any have wond­ ered what caused, i t . . . a few olaim they know the legend, a ll have seen i t . O n Wednesday the deep gulley of barren rock le ft by the slid e , m ay have been the meens of preventing what e a sily might have proved a serious fire threat to the upper part of tho town. From current reports, a small blaze which originated near the city garbage d u m p in North Dawson, crept up the h illsid e on the far side of the slid e . Fanned by a strong wind, which veered North, sometimes south, the blaze grow into a roaring column of flame whioh quickly raced up the steep in ­ clin e. Huge billows of smoke rose high over the ridge while the knife of fire oould be seen miles away. The Fire Department rushed to the soeno and stood guard at the base of the h ill in the event that the flames should turn back and threaten the hospital and oth- or property at the foot of the mountain. Fortunately tho North wind prevailed while the brush fire raged. H ad the wind switched, in a southerly direction, tho h illsid e in­ ferno might quite ea sily have s . ung back around tho mountain and raced downhill and right into tho residential section which for­ m s a crescent around the base of the h ill or­ tho higher streets. Before doing that, however, i t would have been necessary for the flames to jum p the wide, rock -filled gap of the slid e . Sol As it happened the fire more or loss burnt it s e lf out while a group of w illin g volunt­ eers hiked up to the ridge to snuff out the la st vestiges of tho big blaze. Scores of Dawsonitos , fascinated by the upward sweep of the big blaze, watched the spectacle from every vantage point while the camera fens wore extra busy either shooting movies of the fire or taking s t i l l pictures. Another fir e , which started from burning grass in tho North end of town, threatened for a while to ensnare several cabins and sheds but quick action on tho part of Fire Chief and h is aides soon had tho grass fire nothing but a memory.
