THE WHIT Elf ORSE FIRE
The conflagration which swept over
Whit* horse this morning, destroying
the business section of thai progressive
?nd thrift; city, has shocked the peo
ple of Skag way almost as much as if it
had taken place in their own town.
The destruction of property that it has
taken much labor and great enterprise
and endeavor to create is always appal
injf. It ia particularly so to those near
whose homes it strikes. The business
interests of Sitagway and \Vhitehor>e
are so nearly identical, and the people
of the towns are so c osely united by
social ties and personal friendships,
that the natural result* of such a catas
trophe as tnat which took place this
morning are greatly accentuated in this
Of course, Whitehorsj wfll recover
from the shock. That same enterprise
which called the beautiful little town
into existence and made it always a
leader among communities, will cause
it to rise from it a?hes into a better and
The people of Skagway sorrow with
thoee of Whitehorse in their lose, acd
they will rejoice with them in their re
covery when that time shall oome.
Fairbanks, like has been the case
with so man; other American mining '
towns, seems destined to have her he
roic period. It is to be hoped that the
moderation and good sense that charac
terized the committee in charge of the
"Soap;" Smith invest (rations at Skag
wiv will prevail at the Tanana camp.
The supreme court of the state of
Washington ha* held that the owner of
a vicious dog is liable for the dog's acts.
A Seattle man recently recovered judg

the hands of Hofius' dog.
"Alaska and the Klondike" from the
pen of Jamee S. Mct-ain. editor of the
Minneapolis Journal, is one of the la'est
books to make ita apt earance. The
book is the result of the trip made bv
