Stage Leaves Whitehorse On
The first stage to .leave Whitehorse

depaat from tbat town upon the ar?
rival of the train today. The warm
weather has at last put an end to the

Relief from the pains at d aches of a
bad back is always welcome to every
backache sufferer; but to cure a lame,
weak or aching bac - is what's wanted.
Cure it so it will stay cured It can be
done. Here's the strongest evidence
to prove it:
W. W. I^ee, painter of Willis street,
m ar Placer street, Redding, Cal., says
"Like the majority of men who
follow my calling, if the action of the
ingredients usad in the business was
not the primary cause of kidney com
plaint, they certainly aggravated it
when the attacks occurei. I do not
want my friends and acquaintanoas in
Redding to think that Doan's Kidney
tills have radically cuaed an old
chronic case of kidney complaint like
mine, but this I can conscientiously
say, the treatment undoubtedly did me
a vast amount of good. Anything that
helps a man whose back has ached so
badly that he cou'd not sleep at night,
who many and many a time when at
work could hardly push a brush to and
from him without suffering almost un
endurable twangs, is pleased to obtaio
a remedy which brings relief. To say
that Doan's Kidney Pills relieved me,
very mildly expresses the amount of
benefit 1 received from the treatment."

Neglect of Al ska
Commenting upon the probable
failure of congress to do anything for
Alaska at lu present session, and
particularly of the defeat of the Valdez
Eagle wagon road appropriation the
Seattle Post Intellegeacer says:
"The trade of Alaska Is worth to the
United States many times as much as
the trade of the Philippines; and It is
Um trade of American citizens. Con
gress will spend millions on the Phil
ippine*, but it hesitates to aid the
people of Alaska in the slightest degree
toward developing further the re
sources of the great northern district.
Indeed, Alaska has paid into the
federal treasury Infinitely more money
than has ever been expended by the
federal grvernment in the district On
the other hand, neither directly nor
iodirectly have tne Philippine islands
paid a cent toward the expenses of the
federal government.
"Could not" a little of the liberality
extended toward the people of our
Asiatic possessions be profitably shown
toward the white Americans who are
making an empire in the far North?"

own use. The sentence was suspended
upon condition that Kstrada make res
titution of the money and that his be
havior shall be good hereafter. The
suspension was on account of the pris
