Strong and Mrs. Strong will leave for Sitka on the Georgia early on ilte morning of July 3. They will reach Sitka on the morn ing of July 4. Some time ago Gov.

Another j important function to be attended to ! will be the formal opening of the Pi oneers' Home at Sitka, by Gov. Strong. Gen. \V. L. Distin will probably accom pany the Governor and Mrs. Strong to Sitka. The Pioneers' Home was created by an act of the Territorial Legislature. The site and buildings were loaned by the federal government to the Ter ritory. They were formerly used as ma rine barracks by the government.

Robert Bell is now a candidate for postmaster at Excursion inlet, which is the more familiar name chosen for his baliwack ? and he wants that post office established at once. He is here now with a petition a mile long, more or less. Robert Forbes is one of his enthusiastic supporters. There are over three hundred people in that sec tion that require a mail service.

CABLE TOLLS NOTJO BE CUT The War Department has refused to reduce the cost of cable and tele graph tolls on the military cable? and telegraph lines in Alaska. Gen. W. L. Distin, secretary of the Territory of Alaska, has received a letter from Secretary of War Lindley M. Garri son in response to the memorial of the Alaska Legislature, wherein the Legislature asked for a reduction of the cable tolls. The Secretary of War refuses to grant the request and sets forth as a reason therefor that the ca- j ble and telegraph service are now op erating at a loss of approximately $90,- j 000 a year. The Secretary of War 6ays the Alas ka cable and telegraph lines cost the United States $1,362,130 and that since their installation there has been ap propriated and expended for exten- j sions and betterments $869,000. j .

After setting forth these figures, the ' Secretary of War says the average an- * ual <*ost of maintaining and operating ' the system is about $450,000, and the ' average annual receipts are about 5 $361,000, indicating that the system is I operating at a loss of about $90,000 j per year. The Secretary adds: "It is therefore not deemed advis- 1 able to make any reduction in the tolls | on commercial messages at this time." t'l 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 11 II 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 League Base Ball :: T !? ii 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ii 1 1 1 r-i-t NORTHWESTERN LEAGUE.
