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.

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.
