Copies of it were received in Ju neau yesterday. BAND CONCERT WAS WELL RECEIVED The band concert and entertain ment given by the J.H.S. band in Ju neau theatre last was. from point of excellence, a pronounced success. Every number was rendered with a spirit and finish that showed careful training and faithful practice. The audience was not so large as the en tertainment deserved, but what was lacking in number was made up by evidences of appreciation, and it Is some satisfaction to know that those who were present thoroughly enjoyed the performance. Many people, strangers in the city have remarked on the excellence of the organisation, and it is doubtful if another city of the population of Ju neau can boast a similar institution of such excellence. An effort may be made to have regular street or open air concerts during the summer months. TAKl -ATLIN RAIROAD SURVEY IS PROGRESSING ? F. J. Wettrick and P. E. Pond who. with a small survey party have been out several days running a reconnais ance survey on the Canadian side of the international boundary from the termination of the American portion of the projected Taku-Atlin railroad, returned to Juneau at noon today. Both men are tanned and healthy looking. They report, having continued the pre liminary line sixteen miles up the Ta ku river valley beyond the internation al boundary lines and that so far they found no obstacles of any kind or heavy grades that will interfere with railroad construction or operation. Owing to the difficulty experienced on account of high water it was thought best not to continue further at this time but wait a few days until the flooded streams subside. AT THE ALASKAN: ? C. C.

Mr. Reed, Occiden tal. 5-25-4t, WIFE MAY SUE FOR SEPARATE ALLOWANCE United States District Judge Rob ert W. Jennings yesterday made a.rul ing in which ho held that lu Alaska, notwithstanding tho absence of a stat ute covering the case, an abandoned wire may sue her husband for sepa rate maintenance. In makln gthe decision, Judge Jen nings held that tho common law which makes a husband responsible for his wife's debts, and the authority inher ent in a court of equity giving it "Jur isdiction for the securing of right or I the prevention of wrong where there is no other plain, speedy, and adequate remedy" and, also jurisdiction where necessary "to prevent a multiplicity of suits" gives it authority to enter tain a suit in Alaska by a wife for separate maintenance. In a case where a husband has giv en notice to merchants, for instance, that he will not be responsible for his wife's debts or whore, for other rea sons, merchants refuse to give credit to a wife, or, if giving credit, where each merchant would have to maintain a separate suit against the husband to secure payment of his account, the court holds that a suit for separate maintenance by the wife is a logical and legal way to secure a right, pre vent a wrong and avoid a multiplicity of suits. The ruling was made on a demurrer to the jurisdiction of the court in a suit initiated by Tina Schlothan, of Ketchikan, through Charles H. Cos grove, of that place, her attorney, against her husband, William F. Schlo than. The demurrer was over-ruled. The court, also, as basis for the de cision, holds that it is the policy of tho law to discourage divorces, and, if in case of abandonment a wife's only relief should be held to be through alimony, she would be en couraged to sue for divorce in order to give the court Jurisdiction. The court also holds that "it would be a mockery to allow tho wife to maintain an action for separate main tenance and, at the same time, deny her the means of procuring it," and, therefore, that she has a right to ask for attorney's fees as well as separ ate maintenance.
