Boyle, of Val dez, has introduced a bill in tho House of Representatives that will give town councils in Alaska power to regulate wharfage rates within their city lim- j its if it shall become a law. The bill is amendatory of the municipal incor poration act and provides that city councils shall have the power: "By ordinance to establish a uniform schedule of wharfage, dockage, and tonnage fees, charges and rates, to be charged and collected for hay, grain, coal, machinery, merchandise, live stock or other freight, shipped to or from or handled, loaded or dis charged into or upon any dock, wharf, i barge, scow or float, or other struc- j ture used as a dock or wharf, situated within the territorial limits of such ( municipality, or so closely adjacent thereto as to afford or supply the usual convenient method or means of receiving or discharging passengers or freight destined to, through or from such municipality, by any person, per sons, corporation or corporations leas ing. owning, or maintaining such dock, wharf, barge, scow, or float; and to declare a violation of such ordinance by the charging or collecting of any more, larger, or greater rates or fees than such as may be established by such municipality, a misdemeanor, and to provide a penalty for such viola ! tion thereof." ,1 : NEW STYLE FISHING BOAT IS INTRODUCED ;l Something new in the way of boats | J for trolling purposes will be introduced in these waters shortly. J. A.

This boat will be pro ? pelled by a two and one-fourth horse , power portable engine, weighing fifty pounds. With this engine, the speed of the boat can be regulated from 3 to 9 miles an hour at the expense of one gallon of gasoline for every six hours. The fishermen will watch the innova tion with interest.?Petersburg Pro gressive. ORGANIZER OF NOME DISTRICT IS MARRIED ; Dr. A. N.

March 29.?A. C. Frost, testifying in his own behalf, said that he did not go into the railroad bhsiness at Seward or in the coal business for the purpose of making money. When the possibilities of the country and the undertakings with which he became connected, he said, were made known to him, the work to be accomplished in the way of pioneering in that coun try were so alluring that he could not resist the temptation to identify him- I self with it. I i DAWSON FAVORS OUTSIDE CAMPS DAWSON, Y. T., March 19?Camp Dawson No. 4. of the Arctic Brother hood, last evening decided by prac tically a unanimous vote to stand by ' the old charter, supporting Grand Arc- ' tic Chief Harry I>andahl and the offl- j cers elected by the grand camp which 1 met in North Vancouver last fall, and ( to refuse to join the insurgent Arctic Brotherhood, organized at Juneau by * a convention of Southeastern Alaska camps last week. Dawson camp entertains the senti-j ment that Coast auxiliary Arctic Bro- j therhood clubs or similar organiza- i tions or camps should be authoriezd < with the privilege of initiating mem- I bers only from the ranks those who I had been in Alaska, the Yukon or other old prescribed territory north of 54-40, probably with the provision that specific term of residence be required. Dawson camp and some others main tain that auxiliary camps or clubs on; the Coast will mean the powerful af- j filiation of thousands of old Northern ers who will do much combined legis-; lative and other work to further any ' Northern enterprises and the like. Earl Grey, fromer governor general i of Canada, who was elected vice grand Arctic chief at North Vancouver, has j acknowledged the honor to Dawson I camp. TO JUNEAU PATRONS: .

ALASKA FISH ARE BEING DESTROYED Many modest citizens who have here tofore refrained from public utterances are now anxious to be heard upon the fisheries question, especially that part relating to fish traps. Naturally those who own them are the most insistent in their defense, and if we are to be lieve some of their tales we are led to the conclusion that the fish indus try Ir. Alaska will not survive the abol ishment of the traps. To preserve the industry wholesale slaughter is neces sary. However, many Alaskans, some of whom have an intimate and far reaching knowledge of the subject in hand, are not backward in saying that the fish are being destroyed and that In this, as in all other material, the adage is true that "waste brings want."?Douglas News.
