All the servants were there in the hall--all the dear friend--all the young ladies--the dancing-master who had just arrived; and there was such a scuffling, and hugging, and kissing, and crying, with the hysterical YOOPS of Miss Swartz, the parlour-boarder, from her room, as no pen can depict, and as the tender heart would fain pass over.
The constitution of the YOOP stated that its purpose "shall be the advancement of the great Yukon Valley, the Mutual Protection and Benefit of Its Members" and "to unite the members in the strong tie of Brotherhood and to prove to the outside world that the Yukon Order of Pioneers are men of Truth, Honor and Integrity" (Yukon Order of Pioneers, 1894; Stone, 1979: 105; Gates, 1994: 81-83).
