TENAKEE PEOPLE SAY TOWN IS NOT "HELL HOLE" The people at Tenakee resent the aspersions that have been cast upon their town in connection with the re cent shooting which took place there. One authority referred to Tenakee as the "Hell Hole of Southeastern Alas ka." In a communication to The Em pire a citizen of Tenakee says this does - the town a gross Injustice. 1 "I do not know of a more law-abld- j Ing and peaceful class of people," he j writes, "than those that reside here. . This is especially so when one takes into consideration that it has a float- I ing, cosmopolitan population included 1 in its 300 people, and the further fact that they have absolutely no protec- i tion from officers of the law." \ The writer says that application has been made for the appointment of a s deputy marshal and a commissioner t at Tenakee. o?o?o |< PIONEERS THANK |< PEOPLE OF JUNEAU ( The following letter received by The 1 Empire from the pioneers at the Plo- J neers' Home, Sitka, extending the thanks of the pioneers for the Christ- 1 mas presents that were sent them by i the people of Juneau tells Its own story: 4 "Sitka, Jan. 1.?To the Editor.?In I wishing you and the people of Juneau, j through you, a happy New Year, we, h the pioneers at the Home at Sitka, wish to join with the greetings our 1 thanks to all those who so generously i remembered us on Christmas.

Dr. Richard Earl Locke, ? of the First Presbyterian church. Mrs. ? Vaslita Dalton, the woman in ques tion, claims she joined in the rush to ? the Klondike and afterwards was the 1 only white woman living at Point Bar row with her husband, who was a doc ? tor. She has written several playlets i and short storle3 of the North. As the result of her charges, dating back 15 years when she knew Rev. Locke, ? many of the congregation have re i fused to attend and there have been several meetings of the board of eld ers. Tho minister brands the accusa i tions as false, but admits having known tho woman. He thinks she is . cither trying to blackmail him or else is mentally unbalanced. Rev. Locke was the organizer of the first corps of Boy Scouts and his reputation aB a minister and man of good works has spread beyond his own parish. When she first entered the church Dr. Locke abruptly ended his sermon and changed tho order of the service, which at the time, was put down to mental stresB over the loss of his son, but which, in the light of later developments, is given another meaning. Mrs. Dalton has a son attending school in Paris. o?o?o GOOD SHOW AT ORPHEUM. A large Sunday night audience saw a flrst class show at the Orpheum thea tre. The "Pathe Weekly" carried many good features, Including another of the famous Mutt & Jeff scenes of cartoons. "The end of the Feud," a Lubln drama of Intense Interest, proved to bo one of the best of short picture dramas shown for somo time, present ing a period of hatred and strife be tween two mountaineer Southern fam ilies, ending happily through the ef forts of the district school teacher. "The Two Boys," Is a fine, clean cut comedy drama, featuring the Lu bin stars, Arthur Johnson, Lottie Bris coe and Pohnson's two boys, in the leading roles. A pretty play, well staged and acted. "Their Idols," and "Hoist on His Own Petard," two good Blograph farce comedies finish a good bill and leave everybody laughing. This show will be repeated this eve ning. "Rip Van Winkle." Watch for "Rip Van Winkle," Tues day and Wednesday night, two reels. O-?
