Dens more avenue,, Seattlo, is seeking > her mother and brother, whom she > thinks are in Alaska, and she insists ? that she will not cease her long search until success shall crown her efforts. She has not seen her mother for thir ty years. Twelve years ago she was spurred on In her search for her moth er by finding her brother, Louis Jacob son. whom she heard nothing of for fifteen years. She was at Berkely Cal ifornia, then, where she lived with an uncle, Dr. Weed. Two years after that she thought she was about to succeed in her quest of iter mother. A man, who had known the family in Tacoma, before the home was broken up, met Mrs. I Katherine Klsia Jacobson, Mrs. Arndt's mother, in Skagway, but did not in quire what iter name had been changed to. Mrs. Arndt's hopes rose. Her i brother. Louis, went to Skagway, but the mother could not be located. 1 Mrs. Katherine Klsia Jacobson took ' one brother, Frank Jacobson, with her when she separated from August Jacobson in Taconia. She was known to have gone to Alaska in the early | days. Mrs. Arndt thinks her mother has changed her name, and believes that " has been her chief obstacle, because ? she does not know what name she is ? known by at the present time, t She would be greatly pleased if any r one knowing'anything that would aid ?I her in her search would write to her ? at the address given at the beginning | of this article. | WHY HE FAVORS i RESTRICTIVE LAWS ? Senator B. F. Millard Is interested in ^ legislation that will give the people of 1 the East a different idea of Alaska than many of them have at the pres ent time, and to that end he intro duced his white slave bill, the bill to prevent undesirable citizens from vot I ing and the bill making it unlawful I to rent property to be used as houses ' of ill-fame. In urging the passage of , these bills, Senator Millard says that , while he was at Washington city in 4, the interest of Alaska legislation he | often heard the Alaska conception of ? citizenship questioned. He says fre > quently he was all but insulted by ! members of Congress who would in ; sist that the people of Alaska were ?! not of the class that could be entrust ! I ed with their own government; that ) they sought self-government for the ? purpose of removing the lid, and run ! ning things wide open. He now de | sires that the people of Alaska, ? through their own Legislature, show . the people of the Nation that their con | ception of morals is as high as that of | ? the most advanced in the nation.

The law is designed for both sanitary reasons and to prevent a monopoly of the water* - front by commercial interests. The [[ text of the bill follows: "Section 1.?That after the passage * of this act no townsito shall be located within loss than sixty feet of the bank ? of any navigable river or stream in ? Alaska. ! "Sec. 2.?That the term 'river bank' * as used in the wording of this uct shall ? mean the edge of the bank or decliv* ! ity that marks the confines of the vol- ) nine of water at the highest stage of ? a river or stream. "Sec. 3.?That any person or per- \ sons, organization or corporation lo* ? eating a townsite near any navigable river or stream in Alaska, shall plain ly mark by stakes or monuments, the waterfront boundary in a straight line no point of which shall be less than sixty feet distant from the edge of the river bank which it parallels; pro vided that where the curvature of the bank prevents the continuation of a straight boundary line the continua tion shall be made from a stake or monument placed not less than sixty I feet from the bank, and the boundary ? - -4 11 tin shall be continued iu ;i bii<u6u>. , "Sec. 4.- That any person who shall erect, build or place, or who shall cause to be erected, built or placed up on the space of land bounded by the edge of the river hank and the water front boundary line of any townsite located under the provisions of this ' act, any cabin, tent or building shall , be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor , and upon conviction thereof shall be ' lined not less than twenty-five dollars ? nor more than one hundred dollars, ! or by imprisonment for not less than ' ten days nor more than one hundred days and every ten days that the cabin, tent or building remains upon the ground after conviction shall consti ; tute other and distinct offences. "Sec. 5.?That upon the incorpora tion of any town the site of which is located under this act the waterfront reservation shall be controlled and regulated by the city council." SHOUP RELATES HISTORICAL INCIDENT Representative Arthur G. Shoup, yes terday, added a touch of local histor : ical color to the discussion that pre ceded the passaged of the Millard le : gal holiday bill, by giving a graphic | picture of the incident when the Amer 1 ican flag was raised for the first time . over Alaska. His remarks were con ''fined to the feature of the bill making Alaska Day a legal holiday. Mr. Shoup said: "It is particularly fitting that Octo ber 18th should be made a legal hol-i day in Alaska. That is the anniver- . sary of the day on which the flag of Russia was hauled down from this great empire of the North to make way for the Stars and Stripes. On Octo ber 18th, 1867, there was landed from the flotilla of United States men of war in Sitka harbor a color guard and escort of American artillerymen who stood at attention while the soldiers of Russia, in the presence of their tear ful countrymen, hauled their reluct ant flag from the mast-head on the Baranoff castle hill. I speak of the Russian flag as being reluctant, be cause it wrapped itself around the staff, and had to be released by a sail or who climbed up and cut it loose, when it was carried down by the wind onto the presented bayonets of the Russian guard. This scene has been described by Colonel George Kostro metinoff, now a high priest of the Rus sian Church, as a sad affair to the Russian people who witnessed the transfer of their country to a foreign power. To Americans, however, the event augured nothing but good, and subsequent history has not only ful filled the hopes of the most optimistic, but gone so far beyond that the en tire world looks on with amazement, and the fortunate people who live in this great Eldorado should regard this holiday with a pratriotic devotion sec ond only to their veneration for the independence of the nation." SOCIALISTS COMPLETE THEIR CITY TICKET Dave Robinson, who was nominated with the original ticket for council men by the Socialists, has changed his mind about withdrawing, and will be a candidate for the suffrages of the people at the municipal election next Tuesday. His decision to accept the nomination was pleasing to the mem bers of his party in Juneau. The new Spring and Summer styles i are now ready. You are cordially in vited to call and inspect them.? F.
