JOU.N W.'TROT, KDITOH 9CBSCRIPTIOS RATES Om wk. delivered tr ? ?rTler On# month. bj mall Threo months. t*y ms>l iix months, fcj mul ?a? jr*r. by m?il TELL THE LEGISLATORS The people of Skagway should make it a point to imprest upon the visiting senators and congressmen who will be here in a week or ten days that Amer ican merchants doing business in Skac wiT are not getting as fair a deal from Canada as Canadian merchants residing at Dawson are getting from the United States. They should be made to see that while Dawson merchants do most of the wholesale bus nesa with the American camps down the Y ukon Skag way merchants are shut out from the Canadian markets of the upper Yukon. Within the last two weeks hundreds of tons of American goods hare been taken from the bonded wherehouses of Dawson and shipped to the American side of the line for sale 'o retail deal ers and consumers. This has been done without a cent of duty having to oe paid either country. The Canadian merchants of Dawson have done a j rof itable business in American territory and added to the commercial import ance and prestige of a Canadian city. The merchants of Skagway have asked time and again to secure the right to carry Canadian goods in bend at this place to be sold to Canadian con sumers across the line without the pay ment of duty as the Dawson merchants carry American goods at their town, but thus far they have asked in vain The Canadian regulations construe Ca nadian goods as foreign when the ship ment of which they are a part has been broken in a foreign country, and duty has to be pa>d upon them as upon foreign goods, before they can re-enter Canada. It might be argued that the privilege Skagway merchants ask is one that must eome from Canada and not the United States. That is true, but it is within the power of the United States to force Canada to make this concession. Our government could cut off the priv ileges the Dawson merchants have or it oould suspend the port of entry at Skagwav until such time a* the Cana dians would treat American merchants as fairly as the United States treat their merchants. . .? ts VjO MS Nome paper* My Little creek, on the Nome tundra, has been demonstrated to be the richest stream in placer (fold .mat has been discovered in Alaska, richer tSan the famous Anvil creek of the same district.

CAREFUL OF THE FIRE. ? Ikt Stlao Hotel l\rf|?r> of Spala and Sonthrrn Italy. In the smaller hotels of southern Italy and of Spain, writes Mr. Hart In 'Two Argonaut* In Spain." the un fortunate tourists slowly fn-eie. The landlords display a touching solicit ude about the store. On days when Are la really needed to keep the guests warra they sometimes spend half their time trying to keep the servants from putting too much fuel on the Are. To prevent Americans and other pyroiuanlacs from meddling with the fuel they often keep the coal bin lock ?d. It is a touching spectacle to see a group of Americans shivering ronnd a little stove; to see the servant enter, take out a key. uulock the coal bin. put two or three spooufuls of coal In the stove and then lock the bin sen In: to see the gimlet eye of a Gtanada landlord fastened on him from the of flee; then to see the hapless Americana sink back luto their oven-oat collars and wish they were back home. As an instance of the desperation to which these cold hotels drive people 1 once tn a Levantine hotel saw an elderly spinster seat herself In front of the stove In the men's smoking room, with her hair down, while an elderly female friend gave her a dry shampoo. To the suggestion of the scandalized servants that she should finish this Intimate toilet operation In her own room she replied briefly that she had found the only warm place In the ho tei ami proposed to flnlsh the shampoo there, which she did.

The victim of the drug remained an Idiot all the rest of his life. He sat and moved his empty hands as though he were sewing, lie was a formidable rival no longer. "Metvaptan produces a melancholy so great as to terminate nearly always In salclde. No government would per mit the manufacture and sale of this poison. "Dhatoora. mercury met hide, mer captan and some twenty other poisons 1 are neither made nor sold In any pub lic way. They are only experimented with. Such poisons would be fonn Id I able weapons In unscrupulous hands. Driving their victims to suicide or to Insanity. they leave behind them noth ing suspicious or untoward.
