ENGLISH STATESMAN
AGAINST BIG NAVIES
LONDON.?"I am convinced that
this is the only way to terminate
one of the most stupid and unnutur-1
al chapters in the history of Europ
ean civilization," declared First Lord
of the Admiralty Churchill in the
House of Commons today after sug
gesting that the nations of the world
stop building warships for a year.
"In this way," he continued, "the
people of the world would obtain an
almost instantaneous mitigation of the
thraldom in which they have been in
: volved by the evil and insensate folly
I of the present acute rivalry in arma- i
meats. Scores of millions are being j
squandered year after year without
making any difference in the relative
naval strength of the nations. My pro-,
posal would involve no alteration in;
the relative strength of the world's
navies.
" We address this proposal to all
nations and to no nation with more1
! profound sincereity than to our great
neighbor of the North Sea."
Mr. Churchill closed with a grace
ful recognition of the sensible im
provement that had taken place in
Anglo-German relations.
Afterward in a speech .Mr. Church-j
ill proposed, specifically, that Ger-!
1 many and Great Britain agree to can
cel their programes of construction
for 1914, remarking that "The in- J
fluence of such an agreement would j
be priceless and measureless in giv- j
' ing international scope to an arrange-'
ment for preventing wasteful, pur
poseless and futile folly."
MORE WORK THAN EVER
IN KANTISHNA
FAIRBANKS, April 12.?Consider
able more work than ever will bej
done in the Kantislma district this |
year than was done last year, ac
cording to the statement of Robert
Benuer. a Wantishna prospector who I
came in yesterday from the remote
section. Beuner and William Sheedy
have been working on quartz prop
erties at the head of Glen gulch in
which Dr. J. A. Sutherland and as
sociates of Fairbanks are interested.
Benner and Sheedy went in from
Fairbanks early during the winter and
have been tunneling on promising
looking quartz ledges on Glen gulch
since that time. They have driven
one tunnel in a distance of 80 feet.
There will be more work than last
' season, for all the old-timers are plan
ning to go ahead with their prospect
ing, both in placer and quartz.
, NEW COMMISSIONER
FOR CIRCLE CITY
United States District Judge Fred
l eric E. Fuller, of the Fourth Division
has appointed Frank A. Repnolds, of
Corcle City, to be United States com
missioner for his district. He suc
ceeds John A. Cameron, who was ap
pointed less than a year ago to suc
ceed Abe Spring.
SEWARD PAPER SAYS
LANE FOR PRESIDENT
We like the ring of that message
from Secretary Lane to President Hay
of the senate. It means that Alaskans
who live in Alaska through choice
will be named to fill federal positions
in Alaska. It means more than this
?it means that Alaska in all things,
is to be given a square deal by the
Wilson administration. It means that
our coal fields are to be opened to
development; that the government
will build railway systems. We like
that man Lane. He's a big fellow
mentally and physically. He'll sit in
the president's chair before he quits
public life.?Seward Gateway.
OLD-TIMERS ON
SKAGWAY COUNCIL
Four members of the Skagway city
council have been residents of the
city for sixteen or more years, yet
we are often told by Eastern states
men that the population of Alaska is
such a roving one that they are not
entitled to a full measure of self
government.?Skagway Alaskan.

DYNAMITE INJURES
NATIVE EISHERMENl
VALDEZ, April 6.?The Donaldson
returned to Valdez last night after
going to Golden, whore they picked
up the five natives who were hurt
last Tuesday when q number of caps
exploded in a small boat when they
were fishing with powder for herring.
The natives are all boys, the oldest
not over 24 years and the youngest
about ten. The boy is not injured
very seriously, while the oldest, who
had the cap in his hand when it ex
ploded, lost four fingers and has his
thumb hanging by a thread. Two of
them will lose an eye apiece, and one
has been injured in the abdomen.
The accident happened just across
the bay from Golden, when the five
were out fishing. Having found a box
of caps they determined to catch a
mess of fish quickly. While watch
ing the fish they forgot that the fuse
was nearly burned out, and it went
off in the hand of one of the natives.
The news was brought to Ellamar
by a native in a bidarki.
The boys were placed in the his
pital by Col. O'Neil and they are now
under the care of Dr. von Schrader,
who, with Lieut. Kunzig, and four hos
pital stewards left as soon as the ac
cident was reported by Supt. Middle
camp by wireless from the Yukon and
thence by cable to Valdez.
The natives had no care from the
time of the accident until the arrival
of the Donaldson yesterday morning,
but are now resting easy and will be
brought to Valdez today and placed
in the local hospital".

ELECTION OF LEWIS
PLEASES NEW YORK
The election of James Hamilton)
Lewis and Lawrence Y. Sherman as
United States senators from Illinois
ends creditably a deadlock which in
the circumstances might have produc
ed another Loriiner scandal. Lewis
is a Democrat and Sherman is a Re
publican. They were necessarily
chosen by a fusion of Democrats and
Republicans, for neither party had a
majority in the legislature. Both had
some sort of claim to election as in the
soap-box primaries of their respective
parties they were the choice of the
people.
Legislative conditions in Illinois
which made the Lorimer purchase
possible have on several occasions
resulted in honorable compromises of
this kind.. Lyman Trumball, David
Davis and John M. Palmer came to
the United States Senate by negotia
tion and coalition. With this contest
out of the way and direct elections of
United States senators soon to be pro
vided for, the end of one great source
of corruption seems finally to have
been reached.
The Senate of the Sixty-third Con
gress. now complete, stands political
ly: Democrats, 51; Republicans, 45.?

PROGRESSIVES WILL
SUPPORT PRESIDENT
WASHINGTON, April 12.?Definite
announcement of the plan of certain
Progressive Republicans In the House
to support President Wilson's admin
istration in the accomplishment of
"progressive policies" was made to
day. Representative Kent, of Cali
fornia, Lenroot, of Wisconsin, Ander
son, of Minnesota and Hegleson of .
North Dakota, announced that they ?!
would support measures proposed by ]'
the Wilson administration so long as ?;
they considered them progressive.
Representative Kent, of California, I!
supported James R. Mann, for speak-]*;
er, but did so pro forma to protect U<
his party standing. He said that he J ^
will support the administration meas- .
ures. * '
"I can see no good to be accom- j *
plished at this time by a third-party- -
line-up in the House" said Represen- !
tatlve Kent. "President Wilson has |
brought assurances of his intent to ?
realize, so far as may be, those pro- .
gre8slve ideals which, are held by all '
open-minded and forward-looking <
men. To my mind, our best services j
can be rendered by aiding him and 4
those with him toward securing the J
legislation which we desire and for J
which we have worked in the past." i
"I regard it as very unfortunate 4
that there should be any division j
among Progressives in the House at <
this time," said Representative Hen- <
root in a statement concurred in by <
Representative Anderson. "It may be J
good psrsonal politics for third party <
progressives and for some men who <
were elected as Republican Progress- <
ives and to take such a position at
this time, but there is 110 statesman
ship about it. As far as can now be
forseen, progressives of all political
parties will be called upon to assist
and co-operate with President Wilson
in his progressive policies, and new
complications relating only to party '
politics can only injure the progress- ?
ive cause." I
NEW STRIKE ON
FAIRBANKS ( REEK
FAIRBANKS CREEK, March 20.?
When Gust Lundstrom and Carl
Larson reported yesterday that they
had bedrocked two holes on 3 be
low, creek claim, had found Rood pay
in both holes, the output dopesters of
the creek immediately began to figure
an additional $100,000 to 1913's total.
The discovery of the men is looked
upon as one of the most favorable ?
made on the creeks in the last few j,
years, as it means the opening up ofi|
a comparatively unprospected stretch ?
of ground on the upper end of 3 be- .
low. |
The two holes both have a depth of '
30 feet and were sunk a distance of j?
150 feet apart. As the pay was found
in both holes, the indications are that')
the pay is at least that wide. The ?
pay gravel is four feet in height and !
some gold has been found in bedrock. J
Pans averaging 11 cents to the pan in, ?
both sides making an average value
of the dirt $3 to the square foot of,,
bedrock. ! ?
The ground is worked by the two i'
men on a short-term lease from thej j
owners,, Matt Larson and Pat Mee- ?
hati. The discovery was made imme- !
diately opposite the mouth of Walnut |
gulch, a tributary to Fairbanks creek '
from the left limit.
