WOULD HELP SKAGWAY
With free trade between the United
States and Canada the volume of the
trade between Skagway and the Cana
dian Y ukoo would increase 500 per cent,
within one year. This proposition is
?o plain that it needs only to be stated
to be understood by the merchants and
other business men of this city. It
would five Skagway, and through it
the American cities of Puget sound, a
large and constantly growing market
in the Canadian north. On the other
hand, it would add to the business of
Whitehorse and Dawson, by causing an
increase in the population which is en
gage! in the work of developing the in
terior country. It would give Canada
the capital and population so greatly
needed for its development and it would
give the Americans a new market.
The only concerns that would be in
jured by free trade between the United
States and Canada would be a few mo
ooply enjoying trusts. These fear any
thing that might lead to competition.
They are interested in curtailing in
dustry in the United States rather than
in the enlargement of the opportunities
for the investment of capital in legiti
mate enterprises. The monopolistic
trusts would use their influence to pre
vent the opening up and development
of an American territow not controlled
by them just as they are now opposing
reciprocity with Canada. They are
?imply seeking to protect their monop
There are very few strictly legiti
mate industries in the United States
but- that would be benefited by real
reciprocity with Canada, The devel
opment of Canada, should free trade
exist between that country and the
United States, would contribute as
greatly to American prosperity as the
development of the western American
states contributed that of the eastern
states. Every dollar of capital that is
invested in commercial and transporta
tion companies in the United States or
Canada would become more valuable in
the event of the establishment of recip
rocal trade relations between the two
countries for the very good reason that
its opportunities for employment would
The fact that Senators Teller and
Dubois and Ex-Senators Turner and
Towne admit that the silver question is
dead should be conclusive. These men,
great men every one of them, left the
republican party because of its repudia
tion of free silver coinage. They are
now willing that a democratic platform
should be written without a 16 to 1
plank, because they say the issue is a
closed incident in American politics.

Mrs. A. Adams (A. Adams, teamster),
Market street, below Gold street,
Redding. Cal., says: "I have always
had a weak back. To describe some of
the spells of backache which I have
gone through is an utter impossibility.
I have ached so across the loins that I
could not turn in bed, and naturally
anyone in such a condition will grasp
at a chance when they read announce
ments about a medicine which undoubt
edly helps people. This induced me to
go to the drug store for my first box of
Doan's Kidney Pills. I was S3 confident
that the medicine was doing me good
that I continued the treatment and was
rewarded in a very short time with
satisfactory results "
