Out on the docks, a newsie overhead the following exchange about the White Pass & Yukon Route train:

“The green ones go to the White Pass, the others go to the Yukon.”

Walking past the AB Hall – Overheard:

“What’s that on the mountain?”

“I think it’s a canteen!”

“It can’t be a canteen! They don’t have hands!”
