THE APPOINTMENT OF JUDGE JENNINGS )INTING Robert W.

By the way, no one is Mr. Underwood this year with partiality to the iron industry in which all his money is invested. it is the European investor that seeks to block the Cal iti-alien legislation.

From Nome to Skagway, all cities are preparing for added business and many of them are enjoying the resumption of traf fic which has already begun. That there is to be an enormous increase in'the Interior business is evidenced by the way the transportation com panies are starting out to capture it One of the foremost to see the com ing events is the White Pass Rail way Company. With new boats on the lower Yukon and new boats being put into service connecting Seattle, with Fairbanks in a through transpor tation service, evidences the foreshad owing of activities to come. The government is sure to begin 1 the construction of railroads within the next year, which means the de velopment of the country along many lines Coal mining has already be gun, and gold and copper mining is' increasing by leaps and bounds. The increasing output of the Atlin [mining district and the new strikes in j the Teslin is even now adding to the business that is being done in Skag [ way. Juneau is enormously increas ing her mining development: the White river, and Kluane countries are showing better than ever before, and j there is a promise of a railroad being constructed tapping the rich deposits in the districts back of Haines. Coming right down to home affairs we hear it rumored, from good sourc es, that the White Pass is to stand ardise their system and begin laying a broad guage track before the clos ng of another season. It is with that end in view, that no new equipment is 1 being ordered for the present sys tem. Considering all things, there is every reason to believe in a coming era of prosperity that will satisfy the most pessimistic. -Skagway Alaskan.
