want to take snap Judgment on a rcv
| onuo program that ho had heard to*

course in regarding to mining. Mr.

fectly willing to pay a property tax,

would bo opposed on the hteory that
double taxation is unconstitutional.
He pointed out tho Federal tax of four
cent sa case. Ho estimated tho can
nery investments in Alaska to bo $12.
000.000.

INDICTMENT DISMISSED
BY JUDGE JENNINGS
The secret lndlctmont brought In
August 1913, against Arbert Mathi-;
son, of the Guano Commercial com'
pany of KUlisnoo, was quashed in the
district court this morning and the
defendant discharged. Though three
terms of court had passed since the
indictment was returned, Mathlson
was never cited to appear and knew
nothing of the charge against him of
selling lemon and other extracts to
Indians.
Judge Robert W. Jennings charac
terized such proceedings as "contrary
to the constitution of the United
States, the federal.statutes, of the spir
it of the law, and of common decency
and fair play," and ordered the indict
ment dismissed and the defendant dis
charged.
Winn & Burton acted as counsel for
Mathlson.

and flannel suits and such other
things as go to make up a summor out

shine and country air aud plant a gar
den. This morning ho telephoned In

and his first article will appear in

local chamber of commerce on this
subject tho Sunset Magazine says:
"We have advices to the effect that
tho war in Europe will turn tho trend
of tourist travel Westward, and if Al
aska is properly advertised, there is
no reason why a great many of those
tourists_should not bo Induced to
make a trip to tho Northern Terri
tory. It is possible also that many
of these tourists may become inter
ested in the development of the re
sources of your country.?(Cordova
Times.)
