The people of Wetert n lMonttanai ill
perhaps resent iany refereince to nlluttana
climate which couples it with that of
Alaskahi. This tl:ey coul doIn with good
relasont if any other than Southeastern
Alaska were mleant. The climtate of South
eastertn Alaska is even miore generally mis
understood and mnisjudiged than that of
.loutana. The Ketchikau Mining Journal
hias undertaken to correct this prevailing
opinion that the whole of Alaska is a
"frozen empire." It protests against the
wortdit of a preambl e to a set of resolt
tions adopted by the chanmber of com
nlierce of Seattle asking congress for the
enactment of more liheral laws fir Alaska.
'This preamble is as follows:
W\hereas, Ity reason of its climatic con
ditions, the season of labor is limited to
scarccly more than three monitths, its io
lated situation and undevcloped condi
tion ldemands the fostering legislation of
the general goverltitiet.
'IThe contention of the Mining Joutirntal
i that clllimatic conditions in Southeastern
Alaska, iwhich part of the territory is iot
exempt by the jpreamble, are no lmore ttun
favorable for mininig operations and for
general labor thanl are climatic contlitiois
around Seattle or throughout the iuiget
soulld counitry. This is true, as is at
tested by miniers and others who have gone
from Montana to that part of Alaska.
The climate thete seems not to lie greatly
ldiffcrenit from that of Western Monutana,
which, like that climate, is much better
thail its rleputation. The Seattle Post
Intelligecte eXplainis that the resolutions
comiplained of were directed to the con
ditiusi which prevail in the mininig re
gions of the extretme northern part of
Alaska, the Cape Nome and Ytukon river
countries, where precisely the conditions
exist which are recited ill the preamble
of the Seattle chamber of conmiierce reso

lenioin as to the climate of Southeastern
Ala.ika has been a hard one, and naturally
anything which, even by far-fetched in
ferentec, tends to perpetuate those nis
aipprcihensions is resented. It is butt exact
truth to say, as the MitIng Journal does,
that in Southeastern Alaska the tempera
ture rarely fails below zero, the snowfall
is light as compared to that of the MIiddle
.estern Mtates, and that generally the
cliomate is no obstacle to the exploitation
oh the country's natural resources. Nor is
thii, at all remarkable whet it is consid
ered that the best developed portion of
Southeastern Alaska is in no higher lati
tude thai the most thickly settled portion
of liurope; and that solte of the most
highly developed wanufacturing cont*
munmtles in the world, including the great
shipyards of Scotland, are further to the
northward than is the town of Ketchikan,
Alaska, and in a climate very much more
Seattle, as well as Westcrn Montana,
has found it necessary to correct a wrong
impression as to the Puget Sound climate.
The Post-Intelligencer recalls that It was
but a few years ago that a bureau official
of the navy department criticised the
location of the navy yard at Bremerton,
Wash., because of the alleged hlyper
borean climate and the alleged shortness
of the days, due to the very high latitude,
which rendered it Impossible to work there
in winter. Going still further back, the
writer recalls an editorial appeaying In
the New York Herald, on the surjcct of
an rnprecedentcdly early frost in that
city, v hich, alluding to the premature
visit of "jack-frost," and his quick de
parture, closed with the statement: "B'lt
he has departed to rejoin his childreet,
the walrus and the polar bear, in the far.
"il frozen seas of ltaffin's bay and Puget
soumnl." I!ut the world "do mrr6."
Kno.wl.edgei of the climate of Puget sound
is i1ow pretty fairly exteiided over the
rivilizt.l worl; and a like knowledge will
soon exter.d as to the climate of Alaska,
And let us tcherish tile hope that even
Montana will yet receive due credit for a
climate tha:t is hardly surpassed by that
of any state in the Union.

The establislctnent by the gove\rnment of
a st;ag coach route from Cod(y, Wyo., to

remarkable thing. In a region like' that,
where there ithe s no railroad to the point de

mining properties near Butte have de

Kilogram for first money in the Jamaica
stakes. Tall, suave and with the utmost
composure, after his commissioners had
reported on $25,000 at 7 to 5 on Kilogram,
he took up a point of vantage for a view
of the race. He saw Kilogram break off
well and open up a big gap down the back
stretch. Oni the stretch turn he saw
Ethics, under Burn's urging, conime abreast
and then all down through the stretch this
man with $15.000 wagered on the result

last two jumips he saw Ethics poke his

Mysterious Shooting at Missoula.
Missoula, July s2.-One of the most
mysterious shooting affairs that has ever
occurred in Western Montana took place
here last night, when Mrs. D. M. Dur
fee, wife of County Attorney Durfee of
Granite county, was shot in the abdomen
by an unknown person. As soon as she
was shot Mrs. Durfee ran to her home,
a distance of aoo feet, and fell fainting
on the doorstep. She was screaming
while running, and as she reached the
steps Mr. Hosman, who lives in the
house, ran to her -ssistance and carried
her to her room.
