By unaniomus consent of the House, Mr. Shoup was permitted to withdraw hlr, bill, and It was said that he will treasuro it as a memento of the second session. The special committee reported back the Ketchikan "fish market" memorial, with amendment by in ! serting that "Whereas the completion of the Grand Trunk Pacific railroad will be a benefit to the citizens or Al aska, but a detriment to the Terri tory." etc. The memorial represents that Ketchikan will lose a part of tho fisheries- industry, owing to tho Ca nadian competition, but recommenda tions are withhold. A remonstrance from Ketchikan miners was read and referred to the labor committee. The petition rocltes ttha one E. G. Ellis, agent for the Mamie and It mines, has been charg ing $2 for jobs in the mines. School Tax Bill Committed. Senator Tanner of Skagway had his Irish up in the Senate committee of the whole this morning, when the Brilt bill providing that school boards shall receive the money they ask for, after a meeting with the city council, came up for socond reading. Senator Tanner opposed the bill as a measure "that would make the school board tell the council a year in advance what they want in regard to money." He further said it was too arbitrary, and that the power of get ting all the money if it saw fit, without the public knowing of the expendi tures, was lodged with the board. Senator Gaustad contended that the bill was a good measure, that it was | a check on the school board, He de fended the budget plan of estimates. The bill was recommitted and Senator Suizer announced that a public hear ing would be held, to give the public an opportunity to express its views. The education committee of the Senate recommended that the Aldrich bill providing certain allowances for aged Alaskans who do not want to . enter the Pioneers' Home, be heard by the committee of the whole. The Suizer bill preventing wanton destruction of game animals atyl pro viding penalties, was recommitted for the purpose of amendment, as was S. I 3. 25, Gaustad. giving to common coun- ? ells the power to grant 5-yoar fran chises to public service corporations. More Powers Wanted Collapse of the Hubbard memorial asking for Statehood, in tho Senate, followed within two hours the ratifi cation yesterday by the House, of the conference report approving the Mil lard memorial which asks Congress ; for a full form of Territorial govern ment in Alaska, in order that legis lative powers similar to those granted the Legislatures of Washington Terri tory. Oregon Territory, and other com monwealths now States, shall be giv en tho Alaska Assembly. When the Statehood memorial fail ed of passage Senator Frank Aldrich ! of Nome, wanted consideration of ?a 1 motion to indefinitely postpone the 1 measure, as a courtesy to Senator 1 Hubbard. The author of the memorial preferred to have the vote on final ' passage taken, with the result that ? the 4 to 4 poll indicated early this week was cast. Senators Suizer. Tan- v ner. Millard and Aldrich voting in the negative and Senators Hubbard. Suth- , erland, McGann and Gaustad In the af firmative. Road Scrap Lively The debato on the Su.zcr road bill, appropriating $39,000 from the Tongas \ forest reserve fund, consumed four a hours. The tabling of the blii was a followed by the passage of the Mil- t lard resolution providing equal dlvls- q ion of the forest reserve monoy, I amounting to about $60,000. between t the four divisions of the Territory, af- i ter 25 per cent, for school purposes has been deducted. a There were several spirited passag- I cs-at-arins betewen Senator Sulzcr, d who "fought desperately for retention s of the Tongass fund, by the First Di vision. on the grounds that the law in tended the money shoutd be spent in this division, and Senator Hubbard, f who opposed his theory, and maintain- ii ed that the statutes make it plain that " the law frowns on localizing the ap . propriation. Judge Hubbard quoted from the re vised statutes, of 1SSC. an old law in regard to the powers of Legislatures in Territories. Senator Sulzcr quot ed from the statutes at large, which, he argued, stated specifically that the fund should be spent in the "county" : wherein tho forest reserve which yielded the money was located. Then followed a debate on what a county was, insofar as the word applies to Alaska. When the Millard resolution was passed Senator Sulzcr declared that _ the "First Division would not give up ^ its rights because of divisional feeling, until the courts have decided the ques- x tion." The defeated road bill provided Im- X provoment8 of tho Stikinc trail, a v bridge over Mendenhall river, a road ? from Petersburg to Scow Bay, a road <> from Ketchikan to Charcoal Point to X the Portage road on Prince or Wales w Island. o Eight-Hour Day Bill Passed Representative C.

A drug store, though it is run by private capital, is nevertheless a pub lic utility. It Is as necessary in a com munity as a physician, a judge or a minister. People depend upon It in emergencies?and the druggist Is look ed upon as a friend, whose knowledge and experience is, as it should be, at the service of the public at all times. Unceasing efforts to live up to the highest principles of the profession together with strict attention to the business end of It have made the Ju neau Drug Co. what it Is today?the j best drug store In Southeastern Alas ka. What made it was not so much the fact that we carry the largest stock, but because we give THE BEST SERVICE, and because the people know that they can depend upon us at any time to look after their interest in our transactions. We claim that the drug store is a public servant in the nature of Its business?and we live up to the idea of it. Vou will find so in dealing with us. The Juneau Drug Co., Z. J. Loussac, Prop.
