WEST GRADUALLY ACQUIRING AGE In celebrating its one hundred and fiftieth birthday. St. Louis will inci dentally be giving nho East a lesson in the history of the West. Few Amer icans stop to consider how old are some of th^dtles of the Mississippi Valley and the Great Lakes. Measur ed by European standards, wo must bear up as best we can under the slur of being a now country. But. accept ing our own standards of youth and age, it is not upon the French and Spanish settlements in the Wostcrn wilderness that haughty communities along the Atlantic soaboard can look with scorn on the score of newness. Sovorol years ago Detroit observed with due ceremony its two-hundredth anniversary. How many millions of | dollars would Chicago give for the | comparative antiquity of St. Louis? | It must content Itself with the knowl ; edge of what it is today, Just as Berlin must when reproached with the vener able age of London and Paris. If ago wore the sole reason for pride, Santa Fe with its adobe palace of the old Spanish Governors still standing, should take its place ahead of New York, which has preserved nothing to remind it of the first Dutch settlers. Few traces are left of the Fronch explorers and coureurs who traversed the Mississippi Valley two centuries and more ago except the names they gavo to their ports and tridlng-posts. But the flag and the crosj that they carried with them mark the origins of a mighty inland empire where local pride must evor revort to the memor ies of the French captains and priests who served loyally and without fear. ?New York World, WHITEHORSE WANTS HER OWN MURDERER ? ? There is an unsubstantiated report current to the effect that the trial of Caesari and Ganley, now held in Jail here on the charge of having murdered Dominico Melis in \his place some time in February, will bo held at Daw son instead of here whero all the wit nesses are living. We can scarcely believe there is any foundation for the report as it would certainly be much more economic to have a judge, pos sibly a lawyer, and cour. stenograph er come here from Dawson than have a large number of witnesses go from this place to Dawson. Anyhow, it was our murder and its finale should be enacted where the first scene was laid.?Whitehorse Star. BIG CROPS CAUSE BUSINESS STIMULATION CHICAGO, Aug. 3.?Marshall Field way officials and car manufacturers say that good crops throughout Cen tral States and the West are stimulat ing bualnocis. JUNEAU TO SEE FIRST CLASS MATCH Tomorrow evening, August 4th, at Elks Hall the most Interesting wrest ling contests ever held In this city will take place, when John Berg, the world's light welghtwelght champion wrestler will meet two men in one hour's time. Berg agrees to throw Ray ChrlstenseiC the big Minnesota 195 pounder, one fall In 30 minutes, and MAC Simon, said to bo the best 145 pound man on the coast, two falls in 30 minutes. Berg is known from coast to coast, having wrestled all over- the United States and Canada. Ho has wrestled in nearly every country in Europe, while his big opponent from Minnesota Is but vory little known here. How ever, It Is gonerally belloved that the big fellow will be a tough man to handle on uccount of his great height and reach. Christensen was seen last night In a workout with Simon, Berg's other opponent, and he Bhowod to be both strong and fast. He was also inclined to show rough tactics and a willing ness to mix things at all times. It is a sure thing if Berg Is going to win, which he feels sure ho will, ho will have to show class as both of his opponents seem equully sure of suc cess. The match will start at 8:30 p. m. sharp, and ladles can attend as well as gentlemen. CHICAGO HOUSE EXPECTS RETAILERS TO BUY MORE NEW YORK, Aug. 3.?Lelhlgh Val Co. of Chicago says the dry goods buy ing season promises to bo heavier than usual, because retailers have been reducing stocks and have not placed as heavy orders for sometime as previously, and that thore must be a general stocking up.

Slog0" Monday 8 Tuesday BANEFUL EFFECTS OF MAIL ORDER HABIT Business among the merchants of Fairbanks is not us brisk aB it should bo at this season of tho year. There is less money than UBual in circula tion aud less demand for tho goods which ordinarily find sale in the local market Something is radically wrong. Tho town Is sick. It needs a tonic to quicken its pulse; it needs a general treatmont by a community specialist The Times 1b not only a community specialist; but it needs only half an eye to see where the merchants are los ing a largo share of their business? where tho town Is losing many dollars annually which by right should remain at home. Wo refer to tho increasing patron age which is going to the mall order houses of the Outside?to thd money which Is sent out of Alaska to swell tho profits of corporations which are rapidly becoming a menace to the small towns of the nation. Figures aro not obtainable, but it is safe to say that many thousands of dollars aro Invested in cheap catalogue hum buggery by Fairbanksans each year ?_ dollars which should remain in the town for tho benefit of the local mer chants and the community in general. There is no reasonable argumont in favor of buying from a mail order house. They sell only for cash, and if the money does not accompany the or der, tho goodB ure not shipped. They are not concerned in your financial re verses; they nave neiwer sympamy nor credit to extend in case of sick ness; they do not believe in grubstak ing old customers to help develop the country, and they contribute nothing toward tho upkeep of tho town or the payment of your wages. They are merely leeches in the side of indus trial humanity, grasping all the dol lars they can lay their hands on and giving little in return. That is what is the matter with bus iness in Fairbanks. The Outside cata logue houses have the town by the throat. The money which should be spent over the counters of the local merchants, who pay It out again for clerk hire, for wood, light and other exponaes, is sent away from the coun try?to the large corporations which give us nothing in return. They de liver their cheap goods, and that is all. The evil which is bound to follow In tho wake of the mall order habit ought to furnish food for thought, both for the merchants of Fairbanks and for those who earn their money hore and spend It elsewhere. ?

Are you paying out every 4 or 5 years enough rent monev to provide yourself with a comfortable home of your own? Does the prospect of owning a home when your investment is se cure and when you can enjoy your leisure hours in privacy and comfort appeal to you? I take it for granted that every man, (be he rich or poor, married or sing e) as lea w disadvantages of the rented apartment, the rooming house, the restaurant and the many other substitutes for the home and the lack of conveniences and comforts he is lore > which he would be able, in many cases, to correct if he only had a home of his own. . , ., - ? . ? TYWVno.r tvimwn Then, too, we have all felt the burden of the landlord upon our backs; we have all paid for many homes only to realize m the end, that the money paid for y 3W3V ? ? After years of paying tribute to the landlord you are as far from the realization of your dream of home and pleasant surroundings as when you first glimpsed the picture in an ticipation. Any man of average earning capacity, can own a home and that, too, without any great sacrifice on his part. All he has to do is to resolve that he will not pay another dollar for ? JIT IS NOT THE LANDLORD'S FAOLT il IT IS YOUR OWN I; rent to anyone save himself and keep his resolutions. He should first, however, satisfy himself that his real estate is worth what he pays for it and that it will increase in value. Is Juneau a Safe Place for Investment? Juneau is the capital and chief commercial center ? the best town in Alaska,?already the greatest gold-producing center of America and destined in a few short months, to become the greatest gold producing center of the world. We all know that the Treadwell mines have produced over 28 millions of dollars in dividends, but many do not know that over 50 per cent, of the money taken from the mines is disbursed in payrolls. j With a producing mine of this magnitude as an object lesson and three others as large or larger, nearing the stage of production, can anyone possibly have any doubt as to the value and the permanency of values of Juneau real estate. The Alaska Gastineau Mining Comany will soon be crushing 6,000 tons of ore per day. Mr. F. W. Bradley, of the Alaska-Juneau Mining Company, stated on oath in the Gold Creek water case recently that his company has 500 million tons of ore. It is stated on seemingly good authority that the owners of the Ebner properties are preparing to spend from 12 to 15 million dollars in development in the next two years. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? If it means anything, it means four times the present payroll and at least three times the present population. WHERE WILL THESE PEOPLE LIVE? Every available lot will be a homesite, or a bus iness location. Every man who has a steady income in Juneau, Douglas or Treadwell, should se cure a lot and build himself a home and share in the wave of prosperity which is rushing this way. In Five Years from Now Juneau Real Estate will Double in Price * * * In the first place there is very little of it. In the second place, with a population of fifteen or twenty thousand people, which we are sure to have, values will increase manyfold. In the third place?but what's the use If you don't make the start soon you'll miss your opportunity to buy in Alaska's livest city, and you will have to move on to the next frontier with only regrets for what might have been. THE OPPORTUNITY is offered you to get a lot in the Casey-Shattuck "Addition at a leason able price and on easy terms. This is the only choice, easy of access, property in Juneau that you can buy at any thing near its price. Men will soon be at work grading the streets, and houses will be going up. The first to buy will get the choice location. Go out today or at your first opportunity and get your lot, and commence to realize independence.
