THE PORTLAND SESSION.
Trip to Alaska.The chairman of the local Committee of Arrangements, Dr. Kenneth A. J. Mackenzie, Portland, Ore., desires to hear from those who propose taking the trip to Alaska after the Portland session of the American Medical Association. It must be understood that a boat can not be chartered nor arrangements made for such a trip as this on short notice. It is, therefore, absolutely necessary that if a special boat is to be secured, it must be arranged for some time in advance, hence it is necessary to know how many desire to go. The round-trip fare from Tacoma or Seattle on the regular express steamers, calling at Southeastern Alaska ports, which include Ketchikan, Wrangel, Douglas Island, Treadwell, Juneau, Skagway and Sitka, is $70. This includes berth and meals on first-class steamers. The fare from Portland to Tacoma is $4.35, and from Portland to Seattle
