Bill James, onc-tlmo Nap, who was hunted to the Pacific slope and later ecovered by the St. Louis Browns, .?as tho pitching hero of tho bam terming trip of tho American and lational all-Btars through tho western tates. All told 35 games wore played, 'he Americans won 17 and the Na onals won eight and lost three games, jading such stars as Grover Alex nder, one of tho best pltchors in tho ountry; Bill James, the Boston star .?bo horocd in the recent woj-ld's eries. and Willie Mltcholl. Able legal talont examined Walter ahnson's 1914 contract with tho Wash lgton American League toam and ad ised that the star pltchor was free o sign with any club he plcasod for 915, and Walter Jumped. The unusual action of tho majority f Jthe University of Pen3ylvania ootball players in voting against the etention of George H. Brooko as bead oach next year, and tho stand taken y nearly all of tho freshmen team a expressing their "utmost con dcnce" In him, has complicated the thletlc situation at the university to uch an extent that no one will ven uro a prediction as to what is in store or the football squad next year. 1 With Willie Doak's name appearing t tho head of National Lcaguo pitch- 1 rs' records showing the accomplish- ' lents of evory hurlor during tho sca on. fans are inclined to wonder why 1 Flllie wasn't good enough for the 1 teds.

He 1 ad 19 triumphs and six reverses, and ' llow one earned run and 72-1000ths l each nine Innings he pitched. His ?as oven a better record than that of iill James, of Boston, who took part l 46 games, pitched 27 completo 1 ames, winning 26 and losing seven, ' nd allowing one .earned run and nine jnths each nine innings he pitched. Manager Waltor McCrodie, of the ' ortland, Ore., baseball team has an- i ounced that the Philadelphia Nat- 1 >nals would send him Shortstop ? lurphy, tho Btar infielder of the Jer ey City Club of tho International < caguc; Shortstop Milton Reed, last : ear with Davenport in tho Three I ? eague, but who played in 44 games i >r tho Phillies this season, and a < am of money for Dave Bancroft. Clarence Rowland, last year man- '? ger of the Peoria Thrce-I League i lub, has signed as manager of the < hicago Americans for a term of one 1 car. < Rowland managed tho Aberdeen club 1 i tho Northwestern Lenguo in 1909, io year Seattle won a ponnant His ppointment as manager of tho White ox will causo a lot of surprise for e never had any big leaguo cxpori nce. No doubt ho will have his ?oubles stopping from the Threo-Eyo >ague into the American Leaguo, for 1 le big leaguers will think a bushor as a lot of norve to bo telling them hat to do. Rowland is a scrappy < iftfibi cut*, however, and if he' is given th< Job. But It Jorr, bro&to a iinllo 10 think of .1 Htar Illto EdUle Collins asking Clarence Rowland what to do ie a ball gome. If Rowland Is Mr league material M manager, thou Bob' Brown should Uavo 110 trouble at all Tho following is n fair sample of tho letters which arc being addressed to Santa Claus, In care of Tho Empire by the little folks of Juneau: Dear Santa Glaus: I want a doll with bluo oyoo and dark, curly hair, and a budroom sot and n trunk and ft wholo lot of dolls and slfltor all tho things that I got and some candy and some nuts and oranges and bananas. Goodbyo Santa Claua. Hore is anothor, In which tho writer does not hesltato to ask for what she wants, and in good variety: Dear Santa:?I'm a llttlo girl eight years old. Plcaso bring ine a doll store, a doll table, a set of knives, a school dress, tbreo chairs and a pencil and a tablet and a pair of tan stock ings, a safe, somo walnuts, a bag of candy, a box or popcrackers, all kinds of nuts and candy. Now X -will close. Respectfully, Dear Santa:?Are you woll and hav ing a nice time. 1 want you to bring mo a boo bco gun a flute a drum a horso and wagon a litlo train a -suit of clothes a pencil a book-bag a pair of gloves a sled a story book and somo candy and nuts. Respectfully, MILLER TELLS RIVARD WHO IS WHO AND WHY . Tbe Weekly Report, published at Ptorsburg by Lynn W. Miller, formerly of Juneau, defends Its politics and its ownership In the following: "The Ketchikan Progrcsslvo (orst while the Petersburg Progressive) ap pears to have a 'peeve' becauso of tho establishment of the Report. The Progressive quit Petersburg, but Petersburg didn't follow it. Tho town remains right here?and is still tho best port for the ilBhing fleet in South eastern Alaska, and the logical hub of the fishing Industry. Had tho Pro gressive rcmainod in Petersburg, there would have been no Report. So wo would counsel the Progressive to come out of its 'peeve,' as it plainly has no foundation upon which to hold it. As to tho ownership of tho Roport, the Progressive is badly, if not malici ously, in error. No person in Peters burg outside of tho Report office has one cent of interest in tho paper, ilrectly or Indirectly. The Progressive editor also errs in'classing tho Roport editor as a fellow 'cx-ropublican.' Tho editor of the Roport is a republican -'stand-patter' if you will?and has been such ever since arriving at years of presumed discretion. He has also during the samo period been continu ously connected with the printing and publishing business. He is, therefore, neither 'cx-rcpublican' or ex-anything ulse." FOREST NOTES. The timber industry represents 37 per cent of the annual production of wealth in British Columbia. ?4? Boxmakers in tho Unitod States use moro than four and n half billion board feet of lumber each year or moro than ono-tonth of tho entiro umber out of the country . Of two million nhcep annually graz ed in the state of Utah, more than i million arc on tho national forests, jr, including lambs which are fatten ing for market on tho forest ranges, jver a million nnd three-quarters. In addition to his own fire detection system, tho supervisor of tho Palisado latlonal forest, Idaho, was notified of sach ilro by from flvo to ten different local settlers, who thus showed their co-operation in working for fire sup pression. Tho Uinta mountains of Utah, in cluded within tho Wasatch, Uinta, md Ashley national forests, should become a favorlto recreation region, because of the many small lakes with in depressions scooped out by glacial drifts. Seventy such lakes can be counted from Reld'a peak, and one particular township, 3G miles square, contains more than a hundred. RUMORED "SEATTLE" TO 3E OIL BURNER Scuttle believe her owners, (he Pad- / withdraw hor from the run in \ the ^ CHJEF HILL, OF HUMBOLDT, engineer of tho steamship Hurobldt, ^ oilicors over on the Alaska run, has c loft the Humboldt, to take a govern- t inspector of bollorc, Now Orleans (, district. . , The best wlshos of a host of friends ' In Alaska accompany "Hlllie" to his ? now field. t / GREGORY WOULD ENLARGE GRAND JURIES' POWERS In his first report to President Wit son. Attorney General Gregory rocom mended that the power of federal grand Juries be enlarged so that they can investigate crimes committed in any division of a federal district Ho suggests also that nn amendmont to existing law is needed whereby a fed eral judge In whoso court an indict ment Is returned, tnay consider testi mony before, the grand Jury and enter an order making tho warrant run to all parts of the federal territory. "Undor tho prevailing practice," says the report "offenders asalnst uniform laws while living within tho borders of the United States frequently gain practical Immunity from punishment. The federal laws apply to every part of tho United States ana the procedure to securo tho punishment of tho of fender before the court should bo as far-reaching aB tho law declaring the offonse. It Is oftcn-tlnios more dlffl cult and cx'pcnslvo to compel an ac cused person who lives la a state other than tho one where the offense is com mitted to respond to an accusation than it 1b to secure extradition from a foreign country." Amendments of a minor naturo are suggested also to tho food and drugs act, tho- lnsoctlclde act, 'lie twenty eight hour law and tho bankruptcy law. Mr. Gregory renewed the rec ommendations of tho former nttornoy general that when a fedoral Judge of any court bolow tho Supremo Court reaches tho ago of seventy and after ten years service, refused to retire the president be authorized to appoint another Judge to preside ovor tho af fairs or that court and have prcco donee over tho older Judge. A FLINCH COMING. The bride woe noticed to flinch a little at tho word "obey."

WELCOME FOR JOHNSON Thrco hundred rnombcre of the Loyal Order of Mooso welcomed Organizer J. Frederick Johnson on his arrival nt Dawson. BACK IN PETERSBURG. Dr. W; P. Ballnnce, a former Peters burg and Juneau practitioner, has re turned to tho city, and will relocate. Tho doctor arrived last wcok from Craig, whore ho was practicing for tho past two years.
