YACHT CYPRUS TO
BE LENGTHENED
? ?
Col. D. C. Jackltng's yacht Cyprus is to
be lengtheneed 31 feet, making her
261 feet and 6 inches long, according
to plans that have been drawn for al
terations that are to be made. The
story of the Cyprus' being unseawor
thy or in any way a failure is branded
by her owner as untrue. She has met
every requirement that was expected
from her and more, but the desire has
arisen for more space for the accom
modation of the establishment that
Col. Javkling finds necessary to take
with him on his Journeys.
After making a cruise from San
Francisco to Panama in the Cyprus,
Col. Jackling speaks in the very high
est terms about her sea-going quail
ltles. The trip down gave the splen
did ship a thorough test for heavy
weather was encountered nearly all
the way. She behaved beautifully and
kept on her course, experiencing less
difficulty than several of the large
steamers with which she was in com
pany during a part of the trip.
Speed tests show that under natural
draught she has the record for ves
sels in her class, according to E. J.
Franklin. Col. Jacklings" efficiency en
gineer. One trial of 91 miles In a
very heavy swell, was done at an aver
age of 16.52 knots; another of S2 miles
was made at an average of 16.73 knots.
No other steam yacht under natural
draught is credited with the equal of
16.5 knots. The previous best record
of the Cyprus by the construction com
pany on a trial run was 15.92 knots.
KOYUKUK GREATEST
POOR MAN'S CAMP
FAIRBANKS. March 30.?"Dunder fa
vorable conditions, the Koyukuk dis
trict would be one of the greatest pro
ducers in the whole Territory of Alas
ka." declared Deputy Marshal Heppen
stall last evening to the Fairbanks
Times, when questioned -egarding the
general conditions of the Northern
camp. Within the past two months,
almost $50,000 in pickups has been ta
ken out by different miners, in addi
tion to what remains in the dumps to
be cleaned up after the opening of
navigation. Hammond river and the
surrounding creeks are in the lime
light at present, according to the dep
uty marshal, but practically all the op
erators are doing well and some good
spring cleanups are anticipated.
Since returning to the Koyukuk af
ter attending court here in January,
and up to the time that the deputy
marshal started for Fairbanks. Jack
Holter, Lee Wilson and Knut Elllng
son. had taken out $14,000 in pickups,
in addition to a fair-sized dump that
will contain excellent values.
On No. 4. Hammond river, there
are three lays, and Holter and partners
are working on the upper one. Mur
ray. Kinney and Redmond, working on
the middle lay. have taken out prac
tically no pickups that will amount to
anything, but they have a winter dump
which they expect will prove very rich.
The depty marshal states that they
tested several pans of dirt while he
was there and secured $250. While
It Is not expected that the dirt will
average anywhere near so rich as that,
it Is certain that the values will be
big.
Schofield & Bowman, on the lower
end of 4 above. Hammond river, have
secured approximately $20,000 in pick
ups since the freezeup. and have a
fair-sized winter dump that will be ful
ly as rich as that of the adjoining
claim.
Vern Watts, on the Hoosier asso
ciation. on Hammond river, is in good
pay and will make an excellent show
ing this year. Pat and Tom Hughes,
working on Linda creek, have been
prospecting all winter, and indications
are that their ground will add mater
ially to the output of the district for
the year 1914.
On California creek, the newests
diggings in the Koyukuk. and a tri
butary of Glacier. Jack Brennan. AI.
Slagger. Ed. Fitzgerald and Hans
Christiansen have located some good
pay. and were reported to have taken
out $130 in two pans of dirt.
While these are a few of the more
successful operators of the Koyukuk.
the deputy marshal reports that there
are many other pieces of ground in the
district that would yield equally well
if there were more prospectors to work
them. The greatest difficulty with the
Koyukuk. according to the official, is
that the beginning prospectors there
must have good financial backing be
fore they can buy grub enough to last
them while they are opening up
ground. While Mr. Heppenstall thinks
it is the Ideal spot for poor men to
make big money, he states it would
be equally profitable for larger outfits
If they could get supplies at a reason
able figure.
LODGE SAYS NATIONS
DISTRUST UNITED STATES
WASHINGTON, April 8.? Senator
Henry Cabot Lodge, ranking Republi
can member of the foreign relations
committee, addressed the Senate to
day in support of President Wilson's
Panama Canal Tolls policy.
He maintained vigorously the legal
right of the United States to exempt
its shiplng, foreign as well as coast
wise from tolls, but asserted that "a
decent respect to the opinions of man
kind" and the "distrust, in some cases
dislike." with which the United States
is regarded abroad, demanded prompt
repeal of the exemption clause of the
canal act.
"Whether we shall insist upon giv
j ing to our ships $2,000,000 or $3,000,000
In a disputed way Is. In my concep
tion. a small question compared to
the larger issues Involved," the Sena
tor said.
"When tho year 1909 opened, the
United States occupied a higher and
j stronger position among the nations
of the earth than at any period of our
history. This great position and this
commanding influence have been large
ly lost.
"I am not in the councils of Presi
dent Wilson, but I believe that during
the past year the present position of
the United States In Its foreign rela
tions has become very apparent to him 1
as It has to other responsible and re- '
fleeting men and with this apprecla- '
tion of our present position has come '
the earnest wish to retrace some of '
our steps, at least, and to regain, as '
far as possible, the high plane which
we formerly occupied.
Sport of Politics.
"It would be an obvious impropriety 1
to point out the specific conditions of
our present relations with the various 1
nations, both in the old world and '
the new; it is enough to note the fact '
that we are regarded by other nations 1
with distrust, and in some cases with
dislike. Rightly or wrongly, they have '
come to believe that we are not to
be trusted: that we make our inter
national relations the sport of politics
and treat them as if they were in no
wise different from questions of Demo
cratic legislation.
"The President renewed the arbi
tration treaties and finally, after a de
lay. aroused unpleasant suspicions
those which have been sent to the
Senate ratified. This was the Presi- '
dent's first step, as I looked at it,
in his efforts to restore the influence ?
and reputation of the United States,
which he had found to be impaired.
The second step is his recommenda- 1
tion of the repeal of the toll exemp- '
tion clause of the canal act."
In opening his speech Senator Lodge
rehearsed the history of the canal ne
gotiations. previous to the "blunder '
of the Clayton-Bulwer treatry," which 1
he said had been committed the Unit
ed States to obligations pregnant with
future trouble.
THE REASON FEWER
PEOPLE TAKE "SALTS"
We flud the use of salts and other
harsh physics Is becoming less every
year because more and more people
are using Rexall Orderlies, which we
and they firmly believe to be the best
bowel remedy ever made. They taste
so much like candy that even the chil
dren like them. At the same time
they act so easily and naturally that
there is no purging, griping or pain.
They promptly remove the constipa
tion and. by soothing and strengthen
ing the bowels, make It less liable to
occur again. We know what they are
made of and the pleasant, beneficial
results that always follow their use.
You needn't take our word for it.
If Rexall Orderlies don't help you?If
they don't entirely relieve all your
bowel troubles?come back and tell
us and we'll give back your money.
In vest pocket tin boxes: 10c, 25c,
and 50 c.
You can buy Rexall Orderlies only
at The Rexall Stores, and in this town
only of us.

GOV. STRONG MAKES
CASE FOR ALASKA
?+?
Gov. J. F. A. Strong makes out a <
strong case for his contention that i
Alaska should have adequate and
separate representation at the San (
Francisco Fair.
If Congress fails to take his advice
in this matter, it will be showing lim
ited business acumen, for every doll- 1
ar so expended will return dividends <
to the railways that it will build In i
the Territory. <
This fact should add measurably to 1
the strength of whatever represeuta- |
tion the Governor may make to admin- j
istration leaders in Washington. i
Inasmuch as the United States In- t
tends to invest an enormous sum In: <
the Northland at once, and unquesion- ]
ably will increase its holdings in the j
immediate future, there is every log- t
ical reason why the nation should ex- <
plolt the resources of the country that | i
its railroads will serve. i 1
Private railroad corporations that 11
have been successful in developing
sections of country through which they
run have adopted similar tactics and t
have found that the results more than t
outweighed the expenditure. 1
As an advertising proposition direct- <
ly affecting Alaska, the San Francisco f
fair looms big. In the first place, peo- |
pie who visit the exposition will logi- j
cally expect to see an Alaska exhibit j
there. <
Being a Coast enterprise, the East
will be surprised if some showing is ]
not made advertising the resources of;
the particular section of the great West
in which the country will be most in-,
terested in 1915?the year when rail- 1
road construction in Alaska will com- i
mence. t
In the second place, many of those i
who visit 'Frisco next year will make t
trips to Alaska If their attention is
called to the country by a thorough and t
comprehensive exhibit of its resources. 1
Gov. Strong is entitled to a respect- t
ful hearing on this matter in Washing- i
ton. If Congress acquiesces in his i
views and makes the necessary appro- .!
priation. it will add a most interesting 1
feature to the exposition, will benefit i
the entire Territory and, incidentally, i
will materially exploit Its own rail
road interests there.?Seattle Times.

DAWSON PAPER PRAISES
JUDGE BROWN'S RULING
Tho decision of Judge Fred Al.
Browu of Alaska lu tho caso of Likalia
vs. Johusou, rendered March 18 ut
Cordova, will be received with approv
nl by geuulue miners throughout tho
Northland. The judgiuout la caBt In
MOOrdauce with tho eatubllahod prac
tice of tho Western courts for yours
In respect to mining cases In which
the written law Is lauie, and follows
tho commonsense course of plain Jus
tice. Tho spirit of the law is that the
prospector who tlnds grouud and at
tempts to comply with the regulations
to the best of his knowledgo und abil
ity shall not bo deprived of tho fruits
pf his efforts. Judge Brown has ad
tiered to this principle, and lu doing
jo he overthrows that most hated of
ill pests to the prospector, the jump
;r. For this a chorus of approval will
jound throughout Alaska and Yukon,
rhe legitimate prospector has the sym
pathy of the vast majority of tho peo
ple of tho frontier, for they are of tho
legitimate stripe themselves, and seek
fair play and justice.
The details of the judgment as set
aut by Judge Brown show how care
fully he grasped the vital points, and
how well he eliminated the nonessen
tials. The decision is of manifold im
portance as It sets at rest a vital
point In the Wlckersham act. Such
judgments should be taken advantage
of by future legislators to make the
act read a9 clearly as it Is set forth in
the findings by tho court, and thus
those who do not keep references of
court cases at hand but who have ac
cess to the laws will be Informed be
yond doubt of the privileges under the
law.
Judge Brown takes the care to point
out in his judgment the impossibility
of a prosepector in the wilds, far from
touch with courts, recording offices and
the machinery of government knowing
what are the latest laws, and what offi
cials have been named, and what new
offices established. It is shown that
In such cases tho man who devotes
himself to the frontier should not suf
fer because of want of technical com
pliance with law of which he knows
not. Absence of the records and the
documents even Is excused by Judge
Brown under these peculiar circum
stances. The fact recalls the disabil
ities under which the Yukon miners
labored when miners' licenses were
required, and when remote prospectors
found themselves disqualified for stak
ing because of licenses having expired
or not being available at the time. The
miners' license?which, by the way,
some tyros in mining affairs would
like to foist on Yukon again in the
proposed new Dominion mining code
?was an unnecessary imposition, and
Judge Brown makes it plain how oth
?r red tape may be made the means
of defeating the ends of Justice for the
man who denies himself the advan
tages of civilized centers and faces
the frontier hardships to reclaim na
ture's riches for tho world.
The decision of Judge Brown should
Pave a salutary effect in Alaska in
ponvlncing the jumper that his ilk is
In bad odor, and that, no matter what
5uile or greed may be exercised, jus
tice will sec that the man who is tho
backbone of tho Northland, the man
to be honored above all others in the
frontier, the real empire blazer?the
prospector?is protected to the utter
most.?Dawson -News.

CHISANA DIGGINGS
ARE VERY DEEP
?+?
DAWSON. April 3.?"Deep diggings"
s the latest word from the Chlsana
:ountry, brought by mushers who ar
rived here today, after being on the
way nine days. Thiy report that the
piggest excitement of the winter has
peen caused through the discovery of
;old on tributaries of White river, on
:he Canadian side of the Chlsana dis
;rict. At a depth of 140 feet on Dis
:overy claim, O'Brien creek, the dirt
panned 7 cents. The owners of the
ground have sent a boiler to the creek
;o aid In cross-cutting the way and
letermining the width. The creeks
n the vicinity are all about ten miles
n length, and have been staked from
lead to mouth.
Trails Are Going to Pieces.
Mushers report that the winter trail
ire rapidly going to pieces because of
he warm weather. The White river
pelow Donjek crossing is deep with
pverflows. Teams have bad great dif
'iculty in reaching the Chlsana. and
'ear is felt for some outfits on that
iccount. Many have had to build tem
jorary bridges across the smaller
:reeks.
