On the allegation that the plain
tiffs have no capacity to maintain the
suit recently filed by the First Di
vision legislative members and others
against the Territory of Alaska in re
gard to the distribution of funds re
ceived from the sale of forest reserve
lands. J. H. Cobb, attorney for the
Territory, this morning filed a demur
rer which alleges further that the
complaint does not allege that the
forest reserve from which said mon
eys were derived Is situated within
the boundaries of any County, or that
complainants reside in the County
whereby they or it. are entitled to
any exclusive benefit therefrom.
A second point in the demurrer
reads "No facts are alleged showing
that the complainants or the people
of Judicial Division No. One are en
titled to have said monoys expended
in. said division otherwise than pre
scribed by the Alaska Legislature.
Continuing the defense states "The
Court has no jurisdiction of the case
action, in that the complainants
seek to have the Court by Its decree
modify Mid control a legislative ap
propriaflon of public moneys, and sub
stitute such decree for the Legisla
tive Act.

(By Robert Nome In Musical
whoso. family name is Robert A.
Clarke, was a student at the Kaunas
Agriculture College. President Geo
T. F&irchild, of the coUoge, was
education anil especially efficient In
music, military drill and tactics.
In January, 1891. it was my pleas
ure to embark for Sitka. Alaska, to
tako up the duties of assistant super
intendent of an Industrial Training
Training School for Indians, where
I stayed until Juno 18&5.
Previous to my advent about the
only music the native hoard was bu
gle calls during- the occupation of U.
S. troops at Fort Wrangoll -and from
the marine barracks and gunboat
"Plnta" located at Sitka.
Assuming my duties, it was a pleas
ure to assemble all the boys and the
girls who were old enough for In
struction, in the rudiments of music.
The Alaskans being quick in the pro
gress of music. I soon had them
singing part songs Christmas and
Easter music.
A set of band instruments were pro
cured and in two years' time had a
band of 6 performers, which were the
admiration of all In Sitka and astoun
ded many a tourist who came that
way during the summer months and
heard our concerts either from tho
campus, wharf or Haloon of the tour
ist ship. So appreciated vero the
efforts of the band that purse strings
were voluntarily loosened and contri
butions wyere numerous, (he largest
being $75.
Recently in Chicago I met an Indian j
who is now on the Nixon, Nlrdlinger
theatre circuit in Philadelpria, under
the nam.) of Chief Eagle Horse, and
whose school name was Charlie Cut
ter. Charlie was one of my pupils,
who, without any family hereditary
influences, has developed into a basso
cantantc singer. He handles all the.
popular grand opera baritone solos ]
in English, German and Italian. He j
recently completed an Australian ?
tour with his act over what Is known |
as-the Brennan. Fuller circuit. Hoi
Is well known In Portland. Oregon, ?
for his achievements and has sung'
with best local talent In concert and
choir. In reviewing my Alaskan ox-i
periencc with him. Charlie said he!
got- his inspiration to pursue music,
from the band's rendition of Sousa's
"High School Cadet" march. Charles
said, "Mr. Nomo. you have left a
monument for yourself among my j
people. All those boys you taught;
have returned to the various Indian!
villages and each village has Its own
band. Many.are phenomenally prof
icient, often assembling a band and
coming down to the States on con-l
cert tour."
Thus was the foundation of music
laid in Alaska, which is personified
in Charlie Cutter, professionally
known as Chief Eagle Horse.

"The ?way between Grado and
Trieste lies through a remarkable
country," says a National Geograph
ic Society war orimor, which de
scribes the strange path before the
invading Italians to the richest Aus
trian seaport. "Many chapters of
little known, but fascinating history
are associated with this coastal strip
at the head of the Adriatic, and its
legendary lore is as rich as that of
Granada. Wealthy Romans built up
their villas along this way during the
days of the empire, and to this re
gion many wars have sent eddlls,
whose memories have dimmed to for
getfulness beside the main struggle
fought on other fields.
"In peace times a small steamer, be
sides the Tailway furnished communi
cation between Grado and Trlest.
From the plain of the Isonozo the way
rises steadily to Nabresina, and from
Xabresnla falls as steadily to the
plain of Trieste. In the uplands the
viaducts wind in giant coils over the
ragged slopes, and on every hand are
panoramic pictures comn on to brok
en country. The climate is langu
orously southern. The gray lime
stone breaks through the vegetation
lu great masses and the way is li
berally sprinkled with atone quarries
whose numerous pits and debris piles
accentuate the pock marks of the
hills. This torn land lies immediate
ly before the advancing Italians.
"Water-worn holes In the porous
rock, and mysterious grottoes and
mouths to the underworld, character
istic of the Istrian region, are found
here. Added to the difficulties of
the way are many funnol-shaped de
pressions which occtr in the midst
of the regular Blopes. orten several
hundred feet across and 200 feet in
depth* There is a monderful maze of
narrow abysses, hollows, pits, coves
grottoes, and quarries worked from
ancient times, scattered over this
path from Aquilleia and Grado to
Trlest and its sheltered bay."
The city council will commence sit
ting as a board of equalization next
Tuesday. July 13, at 2 p. m., for the
purpose of fixing rate of municipal
taxes for the surrent year. The as
essmcnts have been made by A. A.

by the board, and a week's continu
ous session is looked for by the

After ten months of the war loss
es Buffered by the contending navies
present some Interesting points for
speculation, says the London Journal
of Commerce Tor Jun" 15.. affording
a comparison of thb relative merits
the nnvy struggle, and showing how
costly It Is to the countries concerned
to indulge In minor encounter!
Summarizing the tosses under type
of voBsels, Great Britain and her Al
lies have been deprived of the ser
vices of eight battleships, 14 cruls
ors, four gunboats, six destroyers, 10
submarines, 14 boats and six armored
merchantmen and auxiliaries.
Tho losses of Germany and her Al
lies .consist of one battleship, 28
cruisers, IB gunboats, 12 torpedo
craft, six submarines and 20 armed
merchantmen and auxlll&rlos.
Torpedoes Destroy Most
Separating thei losses under the
various causes, neglecting auxiliaries,
and armed merchantmen, the torpedo
has dentroyed 131,000 tons of allied
vessels, the mine 50,000 tons gunfire
27,000 tonB and 22,000 tons have been
lost In various other causes.
Those 'figures show that England
and her Allies have lost 230,000 tons
jof naval fighting material, posting ap
proximately 1100,000,000, while tho
Teuton and Turkish losses total 140,
000 tons, worth about $60,000,000.
British Losses Heaviest
The figures also show that the mis
cellaneous losses officially rocorded
aro approximately the same on both
sides, while from torpedo, gun and
mine the British and their allies have
lost noarl,'jdouble the tonnage that
their opponents have lost by the same
causes. By torpedo the British loss
es aro 10 times more than those of
the other side, which shows clearly
how Important a part thff{ weapon
In gunfire England has established
a long lead chiefly because the Ger
man ships at large when war was
declared have beon destroyed by tills
means. In< the armed merchantmen
and auxiliary class the net register
tonnage of allied ships destroyed ap
proximately amounts "Ho 30,000 while
the German, Austrian and Turkish
losses stand at approximately double
that figure. Tho total financial loss
in this instance amounts to about $15,
Thus, ten months of skimishing
and preliminary actions, leading to
no definite results so far as the big
question of naval supremacy is con
cerned. has brought about tho de
struction of about 450,000 tons ol)
warships costing about $170,000,000. I

Karl H. Von Wleglaud, New York
World staff correspondent, at head
quarters of an infantry division of the
Crown Prince ilupprecht's army, de
foot tower as it raged at lorette
Heights. He declares Germany's
wall of iron and blood between Ar
ras and Yprcs is solid. It has bent
a little, but-Jias not broken, ..nor even
cracked, under the terrifc battering
ram-like attacks of Gen. Joffre and
Gen. French. He says: "Joffre's of
fensive. now rapidly waning, has re
sulted In a deluge of blood, but little
else. Today I looked into a veritable
'hell of death," as the little stretch
of three of four miles between Neu
vllle and the heights of Lorette is
called by the Germans. It deserves
the name. In no other place in this
war has so much blood flowed to the
square yard as in this spot, On the
ground betweon the Lorette Heights
to Neuvllle and the labyrinth, are
perhaps 10,000 unburied, or partly
burled dead. Stench is pestilential."
George C. Moore, close personal
friend of Sir John French. Just ar
rived in Detroit from London, says:
"Tho young Canadian officers have
been crucified by the Germans. They
have been nailed to village crosses.
The cruelties the German army has
practiced since the outbreak of the
war would make any of our Indian
wurs of bygone days look like a con- '
dltlon of Utopian peace. Civiliza
tion?-German civilization?why, it la
a veneer which covers the basest and
most brutal passions imaginable. I
saw a Belgian child seven yearo old
both of whose hands had been cut off
by German soldiers. Their artillery
even has dropped shells on refugoes.

who were fleeing from towns on which
guns were directed."
Chester. Connecticut, special says
that acid 1b said to be the principal
property In the poison gases used by
the Germans Is being manufactured

Magnus. Maybee & Reynard, of New
York City, for making witch hazel.
The product is shipped to New York ,
entirely hT automobile trucks, five or
six of which, loaded high, leaver the
factory every night.
How sovcrely the naval and mili
tary losses have affected some com
munities in Great Britain is shown by
the announcement that at Chatham, a
naval base on the ThameB, there
are 180 war widows on one street
bands in the sinking of the Formid

INDES RUC O trunks are not by any means
for rich people alone. Don't think that because
people of means so generally use them that they
are not well within "the resources of the average family.
Why, we believe that if the people of this city really knew how
much comfort and satisfaction there is in an Indestructo trunk,
and at what really moderate prices, hardly anybody would be
willing to go even through this summer without an Indestructo
Indestructo trunks have been around the world thousands of times.
They have been on the most strenuous exploring expeditions, and
have come out unscathed. Every trunk is guaranteed for at least
Eve years' perfect service.
Of course they are smart appearing-trunks, too. Not only are
good, but look good. There's some satisfaction in that.
