1914 IS NORWAY'S B"
CENTENNIAL YEAR H
By Wm. Brltt
On the sovontoontn of May this year Sj
It will be one hundred years since tho I
Norwegians tore themselves Ioobo from n
the inglorious union with Denmark and I
re-established the old kingdom of Nor- fl
way with a constitution more dom- M
ocratto perhaps thuny any republican
form of government now In exist
ence.
i Norway Is now preparing for a con
j tenary celebration of her national in
dependence to be held during tho com
! Ing summer throughout the couhtry,
and also for a centennial exposition
at Christiana from May 15 to Octo
ber 15. Primarily this exposition has B
been planned to exploit the wonderful fl
advancement Norway, has made along
development lines during the past cen
tury. and secondly to bring her sons
and daughters together from all parts
of tho globe to get acquainted. ??
The directors of the exposition ex
pect a tremendous rendezvous of Nor
wegians and Norwegian descendants,
and it is learned from transportation
sources that not less than 150,000 from fl
the United States alone will attend the fl
opening of the festivities.
The exposition is located in the beau- fl
tiful vicinity of Christiana, and one I
of its main buildings is dedicated to 1
and called "The Emigrated Norway." I
In this building everything will bo I
done to make the visiting relatives j
feel at home. Besides, there will be II
exhibited photographs, pictures, paint- I
ings and other objects illustrating clr- fl
cum8tancos, conditions, homes and en- fl
vironments of emigrated Norwegians fl
in all parts of the world.
Norway has every reason to be B
proud of her progress la tne past cen
tury. Opposed by the powers of Eu
rope, then allied against the great Nn-;
poleon, she forced herself to an inde
pendence.
With a population of less than three
millions she has built up a merchant
marine that is second only to England's
and Germany's. With the aid of elec
tricity she has developed wonderful
Industries in various lines. In art, lit
erature, music and science she has
produced men like Gude, Dahi, Thau
low, Skelbrok, BJomson, Ibsen, Lee,
Bull. Grieg, Munck, Abel, etc.
Illiteracy is unknown, and she,
stands today as oue of the leading na-i
tions of Europe in general education <
and industrial progress.

WHITE SLAVER'S YOUNG
WIFE GETS DIVORCE
FAIRBANKS, Jan. 26.?Mrs. Eliza
beth Beaumont was granted an abso
lute divorce from her aged husband,
Thomas H. Beaumont, in the district
court Friday afternoon. However, the
issuance of the (lnal decree was con
tinued for 30 days.
The defendant in the proceedings iB
now serving time in McNeil's Island
for white slavery, having been convict
ed and sentenced in October, 1912, to
two years' Imprisonment. He had been
a merchant or trader at Fort Yukon
for years, and is now said to be more
than three score and ten years of age,
while his wife is but 22. They have
a child of about two years of age.
The story of the plaintiff, is the
story of a mountain girl of California
whose confidence In Beaumont was be- {
trayed. It seems that the aged trader j
was a sort of Bule Beard; that he'
made a practice of going out each sum
mer with his fur and duping some
young girl in one way or another. On !
ane of these trips he discovered the ;
woman who was lately divorced from
him, then a young 15-year-old, rustic
beauty, who had never been away
from her mountain home. With his
old craft, Beaumont set about to get
her. He pictured to her unsophisticat
ed mind the wonders of the Golden
North where she might reign over his
luxurious household as an adopted 1
laughter. Ho played the patriarch to
ler poor parents, and they consented
:o her making the Journey. What fol- i
lowed was a natural consequence, con- i
ddering the character of the old vil
atn. '
But Beaumont tried his game once '
oo often. He went out again, and, it 1
teems, induced a couple of young girls ]
:o come North as companions to his l
vife. They got as far as San Fran
:isco where government agents, not j
iking the look of things, took him
nto custody on the snusplcion of his
jelng a white Blaver. He was tried,
:onvicted and sentenced to a term in
he Federal penitentiary on MceNil's '
stand.?Fairbanks Citizen.

NORTHERN EMPIRE 1

md to have new postofllces at Mouth

:ial arrangement made by the post- -
naster without any definite contract. 1

A well known Klondiker who has
ust returned from a trip up the White

here is more genuine prospecting on I
the Canadian side of the line, in the
White river valley, than in the whole
Chisana district proper, on the Alas
kan side.?Dawson News.

Cordova's chief of police has re
quested the city council of that place

capital city.

"I figure the working time for this
