:ited the only two legal hangings ever;}
held in Alaska, one at Nome, and the (
ather at Sitka, when Homer Bird was
hanged for a murder committed on tho ,
ifukon river. He referred to the In- (
Man depredations of several year:
igo. when eleven natives were arrest
jd by him, for the murder of a school j
eacher and his wife. He declared that ,

Ife imprisonment, and would have i
seen pardoned had not death over-1
.aken him.

Come delegation before framing it.

AMERICANS TO MAKE
DYESTUFFS FOR COLORS
WASHINGTON'. April 20.?Iteports
to the Department of Commerce show
that six plants are In the course of
construction for the manufacture of
the coal-tar derivatives upon which
the colors used in cloth manufacture,
varnishes and other products arc
based. Approximately $G,000,000 Is to!
he expended and it. is estimated that
much of the material for the simpler
dyes which heretofore was purchased
in Germany at a cost of $12,000,000 j
annually will be turned out in the;
United States. The more complicat
ed chemicals, however, will require a:
greater length of time to develop.
AMERICANS TO
MAKE OWN DYES
NEW YORK, April 20. ? Thos. A.
Edison says that the United States
will soon be manufacturing its own
dyes, and that tho so-called famine-in
dyes, due to tho war, is about to end.
At his plaut at Silver Lake, N. J., he
has already made large quantities of
the best aniliuo dyes, and lie asserts
that it is only necessary for textile

LONDON EXPECTS US
TO BUY DIAMONDS
LONDON, April 20.?London dia-j
mond merchants anticipate large pur
chases of diamonds by Americans mak
ing big profits on war contracts. This j
is reflected in a demand for diamond ;
shares, but merchants have huge.
'stocks of diamonds, therefore it isi
highly improbable that mines now
closed will bo reopened for many
months.
