GEORGE W. DeSUCCA. Proprietor. Published every day except Sunday. Subscription ? 36 Cento Per Week. SKAOUAY. TUESDAY, JULY 12. In all the churches throughout the brave land of the United States, with the ex ception of Alaska, the president's proclam ation was obeyed and the nation's heart felt thanks for the victories recently gain ed on sea and land, mingled with the prayers that our brave soldiers mav be shielded from harm alike on the battle field and In the clash of fleets, and be spared suffering and disease while thev are upholding the country's honor. The p-oclamation did not reach this far off cor ner of Uncle Sam's domain in time for our citizens to join with our countrymen in their thanks and prayers. It is not late, however, forjthe people of Skaguay to send our patriotic rejoicings to him in whose sight "a thousand years are but a day," and next Sunday all the services should be well attended. Every patriot should be there, and the president's pro clamation, which in itself is as eloquent a praver as was ever uttered, should be reverently read to the people. It may be too that Skaguay will have a special cause to be thankful bv the time the church bells ring next Sunday morning, and special prayers to offer for devine aid in the continuance of the good work that has been begun. / By midnight last night the streets were more deserted than is usual at that hour, and today there are no crowds and but a . very few citizens carrying arms. The bat tie is over and the excitement ended. There will be no all Canadian route to Dawson this vear. And there will be no St. .Michaels route next year, and no Dyea route. The success of the lake steamers will have put an all the year frost on the former, and the Skaguay railroad, now so rapidly progressing, the schemes in the air of Wallace and4)is gang. Chicago without the news must be a dull town, yet t ut was the condition at tie beginning of this month. The stero tvpers struck far an increase of pay and a red ction of h >urs. The publishers de cided th it no newspaper should be pub lished :ntil .ill . v ;! J be published. Np;iiu'? riironr Totlrri. Th- M ti t vivs the queen regent of Spain ti ^ intervention of Europe and would "willingly sacrifice the throne for th- 'vlii i is imperative in the inters . .uul l?r itie honor ?>f Spain." The mint at San Francisco is turning out a lot < f m ii.-v. For the first eleven months of the present fiscal year the coin age has been m *.820,441. This is the largest y-:?r's coinage in the history of the mint. Two importa nt events are about to hap pen in Alaska, says the Post-Intelligencer. One i> the ar iv ;l ot . locomotives at Skag uay, and the other is the appearance on the Yukon of a steamer as a mail carrier. The opening ur1 of the new territory is pro gressing r:t a remarkable rate. The S "Mkane 4 Northern railroad has been s -IJ U J. P. Morgan & Co., presum ably tor the Northern Pacific. The price paid i ?r ?he pr ?; erty is?aid to be between $5,000,000 an J $6,000,000. The rew government assay office at Se attle will bo .eady f 0' business on Thurs day and in gooJ working order by the time the Klondil.e gold reaches there by i way of St. Mid aels. Some )t tftt V rs who made such a quick trip from Dawson to Skaguay last week ler"t with tiieir sacks of gold on the City of Seattle anJ the Cottage City, but the majority took Mio Tartar to-day, in the belief tu.it it will oeat the other steam ers down. UnJer the new reveniN act a stamp tax is required on all customs papers- Cus toms bond will require a 50 cent stamp, all entries for consumption or for warehouses, 25 cents to Si, according to value of invoice. TUK MNtilVI or WAR. The public subscription for the bond is sue ot $200,000,000 has been taken up with great enthusiast. On July 1st it had reached the enormous sum of 5790.000,000, of which in mt there liaJ been received at the treasury department and absolutely accepted in subscriptions of $500 and less tlie sum of 540,000,000. What will Spain's minister of finance think of this ? The last pariv from Dawson say they started on the steamer Ora to come out this way with many misgivings that they would have to pole the steamer up to Five Fingers, and then to take the Dalton Trail. That they made so rapid and easy a journey all the way to Bennett was a sur prise to them. So many men with gold dust and nuggets that they have cleaned up are eager to come out that as soon as the news reaches Dawson of the success of steam navigation on the upper river and the lakes the boats will be crowded. And the fame of the route by water to the Klondike by way of Skaguay, the leading seaport of the northern waters, will be car ried to all parts a# the earth. Ev.-rebt -ells flour a bbl.
