By that means the people of the town could conduct the purely local matters in a manner to suit teroselve>: they would have juris diction over the policing of the place and other matters that concern the peo ple who reside there more than they do any one else, and they would retain for their town the license fees that are col lected there under the occuration tax law. At the present time all that money goes to the federal government, and to get a public school, the i<eople have to make obeisance to one W. A. Kelly, aSitk.i tory, who regards those who are making Alaska a white man's country sis a little less than the Indians. Than they have to mix the white chil dren and the Indians in the school room at a ratio of several diseased Indians to one white child. In tl-at humiliating and unsatisfactory manner they are en abled to get back a mere fractiou of what the federal government has mulcted from them. The only people in Alaska who have any semblance of freedom are those who reside in munic palities, and the people of Haines deserve as much free dom as the situation will afford. Let them get rid of VV. A. Kelly, the in competent monarchist, who resents the advent of the whiteman as an en croachment upon the preserves of the little gang of tories of which he is a memb-.-r. by incorporating their town under the law. .. .? .. 11 _ 1H .. I.* The expression of the papers at Nouie indicate that the people of that section are as strongly American anil as bitter ly opposed to toryism as are those of Southeastern Alaska. They are de manding the removal of Gov. Brady from the executive office and the organ ization of a territorial irovernment in the district. More power to them! The gathering of high military otli c 'rs a: Skagway need cause no great uneasiness to the powers. They are n >t here to select the field for that bat tle which an eminent Dakotan said would be fought in Alaska when the United States and IUiss'a sho Id go to war in the near future. The last doubt about that municipal water system has been removed from the mind of the greatest skeptic in the town. 1 he work iias begun and the material is on the way. Youcj?

FOR WORK Catholics May Start More Missions Lu Alaska The Catholics have planned a pro gressive policy in their work in Alaska^ and It is the intention to establish missions at many places whore there are none at the present time. Father Turneil will look the ground over at Vaklez ami at Sewark, the terminus of the Alaska Central, on Resurrection at the suggestion of Father Cremont, who is now on the Vukon. It is also thought that a church will be established at Fairbanks this vear. Most of the work of the Catholic church that has been done in Alaska has been borne by the people of the district, but it is now hoped to get more funds from the outside. It has been published heretofore that the I'r.sbyterian church at Skagway was the only church in the district that has been self-sustaining. That is in correct, as St. Marks Catholic church at this place is self-sustaining, and has been so since 1899.

Brodv will not be reappointed to the gubernatorial office. Gov. Brady has shown in the pas' eight years that he is not the man for the p'.ace.

Every once in a while they apjieared, 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. 1 was treated by a physician and he stated that I would never get entirely rid of them unless 1 had them lanced and the core takeu out. He operated on them and I was not bothered with any mr.re until last fall, when one made its appeararce. I 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 t na? foil >wed by others, but Doan's Kidney I'ills checked them. About two weeks ago one broke out on my arm ind I again resorted to Doan's Kidney 1 'ills, and they prevented others from appearing. 1 can cheerfully recom mend Doan's Kidney Pills, for I also know others who have used theui with very satisfactory results."
