DOGMOBILE IS HERE
Harry Yeomans, the owner of Skag
way'B world-renowned dogmoblle, will
be In Juneau for some weeks, having
been summoned here for jury duty.
Harry felt so badly, when he con
templated leaving tho motive power
of his rotnarkable road wagon alone
In the far Northern city that he
brought tho puir of big yellow dogs
down to Juneau.
Once the resolve had been made
to bring the motive power ho realized
that there must be somo provision
made to exercise the dogs so he bun
died up the wheels with thoir pneu
matic tires and they aro also hero.
Somo fine morning when the beau
tiful blind goddess on the hill gets
tired of Harry's company Juneau will
have a rare treat. Mr. Yoomans in
tends to contrive an ambulance of
some sort, having in part at least the
glory of Skagway's treasure if not
a countepart of the famous carriage.
When finished tho elite of Juneau's
"400," yea, even sweet young society
buds, will be invited to enjoy an exhil
arating ride with the speed maniac.
Harry says that this is no idle per
siflage?the dogs are here; the pneu
matic tiros aro here?the pretty girls
are here. All that is needful is the
LIST FOR JUNEAU.

"D N," EXCLAIMS JUDGE
NEW YORK.?"Dam" fell from the
ljps of Judge Coxe in the United
States circuit court of appeals recently
as he scrutinized the court calendar.
The Btartled clerk took the paper the
judge handed to him. Then the clerk,
too, said "dam." But he got no fur
ther. With the air of a man who gives
up guessing, he called "No. 17." The
case up for trial was:
the United Fruit Company."
It is now known as the case of
"the Alphabet versus United Fruit"

OF HOLDING ON
WASHINGTON, Dec. 18.?There 1b
little probability that any of the re
cess appointments made by President
Taft will be confirmed by the Sen
ate, and those Include officials ofall
grades from a Judge of a federal court
to a postmaster. Tho Democrats In
tho Senato will see to this, it Is de
clared, and some of tho Progressive
Senators ? notably Polndextcr, of
Washington?are In sympathy with
It is pointed out that whenever a
Republican administration has come
Into power they made short shrift
of the Democratic ofllclals, replac
ing them with Republicans with all
possible haste; and the Democrats
aro Just as hungry for office as over
were tho Republicans.
So it is said every appointment that
has been made by President Taft will
be held up in the Senate until Presi
dent Wilson tins assumed office.
PORTLAND CITY HAS
A MINING SECTION
Frank DoverBplke, who recently ar
rived from Stewart, B. C., has gone
on a short trip for the purpose of
looking over some mining property.
Mr. Doverspike Is an old Alaskan from
Nome, who drifted down Into the
Portland canal country.
Mr. Doverspike, has according to
well known Alaskans, who have been
on the property, one of the biggest
mining properties in that section. It
is a large lead of silver galena gold
ore, running very high in silver, with
$100 to the ton in gold.
While the property is across the
line In Canadian territory the only
methods of ingress and egress is by
way of Portland City on the American
side. Portland City Is at the mouth
of Salmon river and the mining sec
tion is on that same stream across
the boundary line about a mile and
a half. Stweart City is just across
the canal on Canadian territory and
at the mouth of Bear river. This
stream too forms a large mining sec
tion which has attracted considerable
attention to Stewart.

WITHOUT our knowledge, the Columbus Labo

Flour for a Dakota Wheat Grower. The an
alysis ranked Fisher's Blend Flour higher in Gen
eral Average, Gluten Quality, Water Absorption and
Loaf Value than the best Dakota all-IIard Wheat Pat
ent Flour, which is the recognized standard for bread
stuff efficiency. Fisher's Blend Flour is a scientific
combination of Eastern Hard Wheat and Western Soft
Wheat, preserving the best qualities of each. It costs
you from 20 to 25% less than a straight Eastern Hard
