WAS A GREAT SUCCESS ,
The Elks' dance last night at Elks'' ^

clal events that have ever been given! (
by that order that never does anything ]
that it does not do well. The beautl-1 (
fully dcorated hall and handsomely j
gowned women presented a picture
not soon to be forgotten. The attend- j |
ance was large, and everything possi
ble was done for the comfort and !
pleasure of the guests. Electric fans j (
kept the air in motion; ices and punch I
were served, and notwithstanding that;
the night was warm, the hall was |
comfortable and the evening enjoyed. 11
The music by Prof. Sumpf's ten-piece;
orchestra, was doubtlessly the best
dance music ever heard in Juneau. (

The land office has recommended
that patent to the Feed group of coal
claims bo repected. This is a group
of coal claims eight in number In the
Bering river district. These claims
were sold by the original locators to
a company known as the Alaska An
thracite Coal company of eight stock
holders, who paid for the claims near
ly $10,000. The company applied for
patent, and the government charges
that tho original locators made un
lawful location in that they all agreed
to let their agent Freed have an In
terest in the locations, or that their
several interests constituted realy a
common Interest, and that they did
not open or Improve a coal mino on
each of the locations. The decision
Is that the government has failed to
prove any of the charges of fraud, ex
cept that one of tho claims was locat
ed solely in the interest of tho agent
Freed, who admits tho charge, and
that nono of the locators at the time
of location had opened or improved a
coal mine. The decision was one that
was controlled by tho hearing in the
Cuuningham and James Wardell cases.
F. P. McDonald acted as agent for the
purchasers. The land office has rec
ommended that the applications for
patent be rejected.
