MOUNT POLOFF SENT OUT BLACK DUST It was Mount PolofT that made all the noise and smoke and created all of the volanlc alarm about Alaska a few days ago. according to Robert Forbes, who has just arrived from the section of seismic disturbances. Speaking of his expuriences Mr. Forbes said: "Aboard the Wlndber to the Westward of Chlgnik on July 12. we had just finished lunch when we were suddendly surprised by a noise like heavy thunder. In a few minutes a monstrous black cloud came rolling toward us and the thundering noise began to crack like heavy artil lery. It grew almost as dark as n winter night. "The life boats, that were white be gan to take on a different shade and were soon a somber black. Examin ation disclosed that a tine emery-like dust was falling from the sky and covering the vessel in a thick blanket. In a short while this dust lay on deck to the depth of an inch. 'Two days before this event we noticed that Mount Shushalin was al- j so active, sending out smoke and dust in great quantities. When we got to Unga we found that the town had al so got her share of the black emery dust." GEO. FRED WILLIAMS ROASTED KING WILLIAM The letter which raised the row which lost George Fred Williams, re cently American minister to Greece, his job follows: "William of Wied. the new Albanian king, is a weak, incompetent man. He has no qualifications whatever for the position he occupies. "All he has done for the Albanians has been to involve them in a bloody war. which there was no good reason for starting, which would not have been started but for the shocking manner in which they have been treated, but which may now last for years. There positively are no real men in Durazzo. the Albanian capital, where William and his international followers reign, with the exception of the Dutch officers brought to lead the Albanian troops. 'The powers, by trying to force an outside ruler?and an inexcusably un desirable one at that?upon the Al banians. are entirely to blame for the disorders which ensued. "William has no more business to be king of Albania than I." ANOTHER PIONEER JOINS THE COLONY AT SITKA Quinn Shea, one of the oldest pion eers of Alaska, was a passenger for Sitka on the Georgia today.

FIND "BLUEBERRY KID'S" KOYUKUK BOAT ?. Tho boat in which the "Blueberry Kid," "Dutch Marie" Schmidt. "Fid dler" John Holmberg and Frank Ad ams left the Koyukuk In 1912 has been discovered on the Koyukuk. None of the parties that wore in the boat when it left Koyukuk have ever been seen since the departure except the "Blue berry Kid." for whom the authorities have been searching for nearly a year in connection with the disappearance of his traveling companions. It is said that tho "Blueberry Kid's" true name is Thomas Johnson. In fact. Fairbanks papers say that "Blue berry Tom." and not "Blueberry Kid," is the real nick-name of the survivor of the party. "Dutch Marie" and "Fid dler John" were known to have sev eral thousand dollars when last seen. The "Blueberry Kid" wsb believed to have little when he departed from the Koyukuk. but it is said that he had funds when seen in the States. Of ficers have been seeking him for near ly a year. The report came out from Fairbanks sometime ago that the "Blueberry Kid" was seen at Whltehorse about the first of June trying to raise a stake to get back into the Interior. It is now said that this report might have been erroneous, as there are sev eral "Blueberry Kids" In the Interior, and the one seen at Whltehorse might not be the one who has been sought by the officials. TOM SHEARER BARRED FROM HARDY GALLERY Tom Shearer, of the Shearer and Torvinen pressing parlor has been barred from the Hardy shooting gal lery. Why? Because he shoots al together too well. He has already won three rifles and if let nlone would soon have enough to equip an army. The management of the gallery de clare that they want other patrons to have a chance, therefore Mr. Shearer will have to go way back and sit down when % prize is being contested rotherwise the ban is not on, he can practice still if that will do him any good. ^ THE WEDDING AT THE ORPHEUM last night was surely a good laugh and cheered the audience who witnessed the following, which will be repeated tonight: A splendid Scapegrace shows how an old family fued was cleared by the Scapegrace.

The letter contains an account of his trip from the coast into the interior and discloses that he arrived in Idit arod several days before June 1. The following excerpts are taken from the epistle: "During my trip I often thought of you and about our proposed trip to San Francsco. As for me I am just a*'determined to make that trip as anybody else ever was und 1 hope that you nre doing your share to prepare for It. I feel quite confident that we can make the riffle all right enough. The main thing depends on you. I am going to hang around here until early In the fall and I may show up in Juneau most any time after that. Of course we have still plenty of time left for preparation but I hope that you are practicing faithfully. "On my arrival here I found a let ter from Conrad Freeding. formerly of Nome, in which he stated that he hns purchased an interest in the Barker Hotel at Seattle and he adds that if we are all going to the fair together that we may stop at his place. He In vites us. We ought to be able to rus tle all along the line. We can walk back If the worst comes to the worst. Coming over here from Cooks' Inlet has given me much practical exper ience. All one has to do in order to get from one place to another is to put one foot in front of the other and keep that up till he reaches his destin ation. I think it will be up to you to secure the musicians we need. "I will shortly write to our old friend. Col. Millard, and see If he still feels the way he did some time ago. I think we have a right to expect some assistance from Nome and other places. Our transportation should cost us next to nothing. I hope you will be able to secure sets of uniforms, and while, and don't fall ofT the water ought to have at leaBt that much any how. But the main thing is practice, practice, practice till we will be able to make the best showing. "Let mo hear from you once in a while and don't fall off the water wagon; don't fall off the water wagon any of you. "HENRY RODEN."

Irish Backing Up Government. LONDON, July 15.?The Times says that the Irish National Volunteers are growing at an amazing rate, and that they are fast being moulded into a well armed and capable military force. It says the volunteers now number 153, 500 men?a gain of. 40,000 since June 110. Crime Disappears. One of th<^ notable things In connec tion wlth'Yhllltary movement In Ire land has been the practically absolute disappearance of crime. The grand jury at the Leltrtm assizes Saturday reported that "there was not a single criminal case on the docket. London papers point to this condition as evi dence of the Intense enrnestness of vhe Irish people In meeting their Na tional crisis. "Home Rule Has Won." The London Chronicle, commenting upon the sessions of the Ulster provis ional government and Sir Edward Car son's speaking tour of Ulster, says "there Is not a thin disguise of the knowledge thnt home rule has won." Continuing, It says: "No one can think a Unionist government Itself, wore It suddenly called to office, would dare give such a slap in the face to the Irish National Volunteers as would bo Involved In the exclusion of the whole of Ulster by the imperial parliament without consulting a single Ulster vot er." "DIe-Hards" Whistle for Courage. In attempting to discredit the tenor of the discussion of the moment, which the Times admits "undoubtedly dis closes a strong and steady current to ward the government," the Post says "an exchange of views at this stage Is only In the nature of preliminary skir mishing." However, the supporters of the government say this expression, like unto the Carson tour, is an In stance of whistling for courage by the "DIe-Hards," a name that has been given those who still want to keep the fight going. FAIRBANKS CITIZEN FOR PRIMARY LAW The Fairbanks Citizen commenting upon an editorial in The Empire In support of a direct primary election law for Alnska says: "It Is quite truo, as The Empire says, that the convention system is not generally satisfactory, and that the direct primary system is needed In this Territory. "It is generally believed that there are few reforms that have done so much to purify politics as has the direct primary system, by means of which conventions are done away with and nominations are made by the voters at an election preliminary to the general election. Anyone who has played in the political game to any extent, knows that the conven tion, aided by the present primary system, is responsible for more poli tical dissatisfaction than any other thing. "That Alaska will get the direct pri mary In time is as certain as Is the growth of this great Territory, but Just how soon this wonderful reform will be effective here will depend upon the activity of the voters iu demanding It." JUNEAU TO BE GREATEST GOLD CAMP Marshall Bond, mining engineer who nrrlved on the Admiral Evans is en thusiastic over Alaska In general nnd Junonu and Seward In particular. In stating his opinion of conditions today. Bond snld: "I have been in [ Seward forty-eight hours, and what knowledge I have of the costal region of Alaska Is only such as could be picked up at the ports we touched at on the way up. But I will say that the Impressions thus gained make me an unqualified optimist on the future of Alaska. I can see It In no othor way. I base this feeling of optimism on the wonderful future of Juneau. "It seems to me that the Juneau dis trict is destined to be the greatest gold camp in the world If this opin ion proves true Alaska will make its appeal to capital for Its development! on fact, and not hope or supposition." ?Seward Gateway.
