B HUM month*, by m*U ? 1B Hz month*, by mafl. ? *-M Om r?*r. by mall. - *?* COinVL'1 THE U* 1( an j one ha."^oubt about the | truth of the assertion frequently made by the Daily Alaskan that it is the rule ^ ,B territory for the federal govern ment to bear the expense of the salar ies of the judge, of the district court. , the salaries of the governor and secre tary, the per diem, mileage and ind dental expenses of the that will he necessary for the doubter to do in order to dispel his misgivings , to to consult the federal statutes at large, which may be found in any ] lawyer's office. There is no lawyer but who will admit the facts to be as ha* N-en said by the Daily *??*? cause they are plainly set forth m the Uwsof congress. Some of the territories have had an extra session or so of the legislature 1 for which they have had to pay, bu those have been because of unusua. conditions or because of wanton extrav agance. Washington territory was or ganized in 1S53, and became a sta'e in In the 36 years that elapse! while it was operating under territor ial government there were two extra sessions of the legislature. One o these was to provide ways and mean* to equip a militia during the two years Indian war, that came near extertr- mat ing the white settlements on Puget (ouivd, and the other was after the ter ritory had '.acquired a population ex ceeding a quarter of a million souls ami when the business had become so great that a 40-day s' session was found to be too short a time for the legislature to complete its work in. The one extra session was at a time of extreme peril, and the other after the territory had become amply able to bear the expense. Moat of the legislatures in Washington territory turned back into the federal treasurv an unexpended balance of the appropriation made by congress for leg isla'tve expense?. In U? this unex pended balance exceeded M000. The Daily Alaskan believes that the administrations of Alaskan municipali ty and the commercial development of the district have disclosed the peo ple of Alaska t ) tx?sess a high order of intelligence, integrity and business ca pacity. It believes in Alaska's present and its future, and it has confidence in the patriotism, public spirit and hon esty of its people. It protests that to aaaer tthat they should be denied self-gov eminent because some people residing in some other locality at sometime in their history displayed an incapacity or were criminally extravagant Is as libel ous on the fair name of Alaska as it is childish and absurd. The Portland Oregoiiian and other newspapers have concluded chat the Bryan strength in the democratic na tional convention will be strong enough to prevent the nomination of Parker. It suggests Major McClellan, of New York, as a probable nominee. The Whitehorse excursion which will take place one week from tomor row is worth; of patronage for many reasons. It will be an inexpensive out ing, taking with it an opportunity to witness an excellent program of ath letic and field sports. It will also en courage the further development of the good feeling between the two White Pass cities that already exists in a marked degree, and which is a neces sary element in promoting the develop ment of the northern country. The Nome News says "the democrats have carried New York city in presi dential elections by 160,000, and then they failed to carry the state." It is not quite so bad as that. A democratic majority of 80, 000 below Harlem always meant a democratic vic tory in the state until recent year*. In 1902 the democratic majority below the Harlem exceeded 130,000 for the first time in history, and the state was lost.

Coffey, whose place of resi- j dence is at Kast Thirteeuth street, : Portland, Oregon, says: "I have been : a great sufferer from carbuncles or tumors for years. Every once in a while they appeared, not only one at a , time, but broke out in different places, mostly on my arms or about my neck. Three years ago I suffered from a num ber of them which broke out almost at the same time. I was treated by a physician and he stated that I would never got entirely rid of them unless I had them lanced and the core taken out He operated on them and I was not bothered with any more until last fall, when one made its appearance. 1 1 came to the conclusion that my blood was out of order, and that the kidneys were not performing their functions right, and got a box of Doan's Kidney Pills, taking them as directed, and they did all that was claimed for them On previous occasions when one appeared it was followed by others, but Doan's Kidney I'ills checked them. About two weeks ago one broke out on my arm and I again resorted to Doan's Kidney I'ills, and they prevented others from appearing I can cheerfully recom mend Doan's Kidney Pills, for I also know others who have used them with very satisfactory results."'
