hits. A wonderful record was made
by Truesdell which may never be
equaled in the North, Ho missed his
fourth and . fifth targets in tho first
event and thon proceeded to break
the next 104 birds in a row. The
score is oaslly an Alaskan record and
is tho more remarkable when tho
background which the Juneau shoot
ers have to faco is considered.
Fisher drew the red target which,
If broken, gives the shootor his tar
gets free in that event. The target
looked so large that Fisher missed
it. A little later he unexpectedly got
another rod bird, which he also miss
ed. The club anticipates buying him

FLAG AT SUMMIT
IS DILAPIDATED
Her patriotis mflred by the condi
tion of the American flag at the "sum
mit" of the White Pass railroad,
where Yukon Territory meets Alaska,
Mrs Albro Akin of New York, a tour
ist on tho steamship City of Seattle,
today lodged with Gov. J. F. A.
Strong a protest, voicing the indigna
tion of other passengers aboard the
City of Seattle, who woro forced to
pass tho Summit and see Old Glory
neglected and forlorn, while the
Union Jack floats proudly from a
flagstaff just a foot across the line on
the soil of tho Crown.
Mrs. Akin wrote her protest, as the
Governor's ofllce was not poen when
. the "Seattle" stopped nere eariy mis
| morning. She said:
"Wllh you kindly make Inquiries at
| Skagway of customs officials and oth
? ers of the disgraceful condition of tho
| American flag at White PassT Tho
1 flag is only pieces, in rags, dirty, and
evidently thrown on the ground and
1 uncarcd for. T am told this has been
so for two years. The English flag
; is on its polo and is guarded carefully.
, I am ashamed of our country, while
; this flag is in such a condition."
! Two years ago a similar story was
| brought from tho Summit by the
. members of the Scattlo Cahmbcr of
; Commerce excursion. At that time E.
i B. Burwell of oSattlo headed a com
| mittee which bought a flag, and rats
? ed by its English cousin with great
| ceremony.
: CLARK CONSCIOUS;
WILL SOON RECOVER
? ?5?
' Thomas Clark, Carlson creek pros
| pector who was brought to St. Ann
? hospital yesterday suffering from
| shock caused by a 50-foot fall over a
? cliff in Sheep creek basin, is resting
I comfortably today. Slowly Clark's
? senses returned during the night and
| ho is now in no danger. Dr. P. J.
1 Mahone said today he expected Clark
! would not be long in the hospital. The
? wounds on his head, where tho rock
! that caused his accident, struck him.
' are long and jagged cuts, one on his
! forehead and one on the side of his
head, where the scalp was badly lac
erated.
The struggle that fifteen minors
from the Perseverance had in getting
tho injured man over the dlvldo bo
tweeen tho Perseveranc and Carlson
creek, where John Clark had carried
his brother after tho accident, is said
to havo been without parallel in tho
memory of local mountaineers. The
men placed Carl on a Yukon sled
and dragged it up the divide a dis
tance of seven miles, taking the great
er part of yesterday morning. All
of tho reslue party had worked Mon
day night, having Just quit their work
when John Clark reached tho mine.
Tho men accompanied him without
thought of their own conveniences.
