City Couucil Calls Election
for Jnne 21
The city council called an election
last night for seven councilmen and a
-chool board consisting of one director,
a clerk and a treasuJer. |The ejection
will take place June 21, the third
Tuesday in June, the date fixed by the j
city ordinance for the municipal elec
The council decided to hold an elec
tion notwithstanding that it is doubt
ful if one can be legal unless it be held
the first Tuesday in April, the date pre
scribed by the congressional municipal
incorporation act for the election of
councilmen. It seems to be the con
census of legal opinion that this doubt
as tot legality of the election* will
not apply to the school board, as no
specific date is named for their election.
The following were named is judges
for election: Phil Abrahams, F. B.
W urzbacher and H. D. Clark.
A Potter Party
"A Poster Party'" said Sunnj Jim,
"In Skagway town, at A. B. Hall;
You'll see me there in stylish trim
The force-ful man of all the ball."
"And I'll go too"'-she blithely cried,
"In apron, cap, with waiter too,
Of Baker & Ca to be the pride;
And show what drinking cocoa '11 da"
So spread the news afar and near.
On June loth at A. B. Hall
The Skagwayites will gather here.
All gavly costumed for the ball.

Commenting upon the recent election
held in that city, the Juneau Becord
Miner says:
"The fact that the new law makes
the election held yesterday of doubtful
force and effect causal mary to become
indifferent a.-? to how they voted. Most
of the boys voted where they could
get the ra>>st drinks and best cigars.
The city attorney on the evening be
fore elfctiou gave it out as his opinion
that the old council would hold over
and that no legal election could be
held. The new law does not effect the
school elect'ou "

H. G. Dickson Writes of the
Namp, ''Labarge"
To the Editor: In your issue of the
3rd inst , I notice a letter of inquiry re
garding the proper name of the lake
which lies between Fifty mile and
Thirtymlle rivers.
If the matter is not already closed, I
may give you some information. The
Canadian geographic board 'of Ottawa
tdjpted the name L-a-b-a-r-g-a, pre
sumably after a Canadian of that name.
The United States geographic board,
according to Marcus Haker, who was
authorized by the librarian of congress
to compile a list of Alaska names,
while giving the ruling of the Cana
dian board in that respect, adopted the
L-e-b-a-r-g-e, claiming that that was
the form used by Michael Lebarge him
self after whom the lake was named.
As all rulings of the Canadian board
were made authoritative by order in
oouncil dated December 19, 1897, the
spelling adopted by it is official, at any
rate in Canada. Respectfully,
H. G. Dickson.
Whitehorse, June 4, 1904.
Stingy With Al*ik?
Dr. Gibbous visited the St. I?uis
Fair during his sojourn in the Stales.
He ?ays the Alaskan exhibit was not
all in place, but promises to be a very
creditable one considering the meager
appropriation, which looks small when
compared with the $1,000,000 for the
Philippine exhibit.? Douglas News
