Alaska Mining Law
^ I
Delegate James Wlckersham has In
traduced a resolution in the National
House of Representatives providing
for the nuliflcatton of the mining laws
passed by the Washington Legislature
at its sesnion last year.
The resolution provides:
That chapter seventy-four of the
session laws of the Legislature of Al
aska. entitled 'An act to supplement
the mining laws of the United States
in their application to the Territory of
Alaska, providing for the location and
possession of mining claims in Alaska,
and repealing all acts and parts of acts
in conflict therewith to the extent of
such conflicts,' approved by the Gov
ernor of Alaska on April thirtieth,
nineteen hundred and thirteen is here
by disapproved and declared to be null
and void."
The resolution was introduced May
15th. and referred to the committee on
public lands, of which Representative
Scott Ferris, of Oklahoma, is chair
man. 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.

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.
