er which will bo ready for use In an
other month the Alaska Light and

In Juneau will be able to carry a load
fifty per cent heavier than at present.

A. E. HARRIS SEES GOOD
THINGS FOR FAIRBANKS
A. E. Harris, of the Chicago, St.
Paul and Milwaukee, who has return
ed from a trip to Fairbanks, Dawson
and other interior towns, says there
is a fooling of optimism at Fairbanks,
largely the result of the coming of
the railroad, the terminus of which
they hope to hold for a time, at lenst.
He says the mining situation at
Fairbanks is equalling expectations.
Mr. Harris is particularly pleased
at the outlook at Dawson. He said:
"In spite of the circumstance that
the war is taking some of the people
of their town aro away and absorbing
a great deal of their interest, the peo
ple of Dawson are hopeful and they
are increasing thejr productiveness
each year.
"The people of Fairbanks expect
tho government railroad to be car
ried passed their town to the Yukon
river eventually," said Mr. Harris,
"but they expect to retain tho ter
minus long enough to have that town
established thoroughly as Its interior
headquarters?and they are looking
forward with anticipation of improved
conditions when the work begins next
year."
Mr. Harris will remain at Juneau.

AN APPRECIATION FOR
GENERAL OF JESUITS
?*?
Two weeks aso, when tho attention
of the world was centered on the Vati
can palace where Pius X died of a;
broken heart caused by tho ruthless
Continental war that is raging now
all over Europe, another figure, far
less exalted and consplcious, but im
portant for tall tjhat, was remover
from the stage of this world. Francis
Xavler Worn*, General of tho order
of Jesuits, received his last summons
at Itome only two hours after Plus
had closed his eyes in the Bleep of
death.
The dead General came from a land
made famous by a Kepler, a Schiller,;
Hebel and others. He was born In,
1842 in Wuertemberg, Germany.
On September 8th, 1906, he was]
elected tho 29tli General of the small |
army of Jesuits scattered through
out the world. He has earned fame
and gratitude as an able General,
though his rule was not long in time;,
but he hns earned still greater fame|
and gratitude ns a learned canonist.
Through his hooks In which he clear
ly explained tho most intricate laws
of his Church he became known
throughout the world as a great au
thority on ecclesiastical matters.
His death is keenly felt among the
learned ones, as well as by the great
and militant body of men whose lead
er he was for the short period of eight
years.
