The Exposi tion is primarily to exploit the resources and potentialities of the Alas ka and Xukon Territories In the United States and the IominIon of Canada, and to make known and foster the vast importance of the trade of the Pacific Ocean and of the countries in and bordering upon it.

It appears that he escaped from the Manuka brig while that vessel wasfhere ou May 27, squeezing out through a port Hole and working bis way hand-over-hand on the cable to the side of the Bishop slip opposite the vessel and seeking sanetuary on the U. S. S. Iroquois until the Britisher tailed away. Marcovitz sailed away from Honolulu, after ending an engagement in the ticket office of the Orpheum, on April 4, stowing on board the S. S Moana. He was anxious to reach Australia, where he believed he could land an engagement as a song-and-dance artist on the colonial stage. He had $30 in his jeans and a kit of clothes when he boarded the southbound liner. When ho landed at Svdnev he had neither taken these to pay lor his passage.
