MOUNTED POLICE <
GO TO DAWSON Ten stalwart young Canadians, just graduated from training camp at Re- e gina. Saskatchewean. into the ranks o of the Royal Northwest Mounted Po- t lice, passed through Juneau last ov- t enlng on the C. P. R. steamer Prin- \ cess Sophia. They are on their way ?. to Dawson. Y. T., from where they 1 will be assigned to the several posts in the Yukon and along the Mackcn t tie River. They were accompanied i by two officers. Asked if many of the R. N. M. P. 1 boys had gone to war with the Can- I adtan troops, one of the men said last ' night that the Canadian government 1 was keeping the mounted police ser vice intact, but that many of the "boys" had joined the Canadian over seas contingent upon the end of their service in the Mounted Police. FOREIGN SALES EFFECT PRICE OF JACKLING STOCKS The sales by foreign owners of American stocks for the purpose of aiding in establishing credit in the United States have affected the prices of the Jackling stocks the same as it has practically all other Issues. The Boston News Bureau says thatj since April 1 Paris sales of Jackling! stocks have amounted to 99,535 shares j In spite of those heavy sales all Jack-. ling stocks have advanced since the first of April. Jackling stocks have been among those that foreign hold ers can sell for more than they paid, j YOUNG SINGERS GO TO SAN FRANCISCO The .Misses Carolyn and Mary Bern hofer left yesterday on the Dolphin for Ketchikan, and will appear in con cert in that city some time this week.; The program will contain piano and | vocol selections.

Miss Hannah Biegert. a sister of Miss Marion Biegert of the Alaska Gastlneau office force, arrived from the south on the Admiral Watson. !ANADA*S PROBLEMS i? AND POSSIBILITIES | With a wisdom stimulated by noc- j ssity. Canada ia about to take stock , if both her problems and her poaal- , illlties. The especially wise part of ^ he program ia that a long-range sur rey is to be taken, looking beyond :ertaln immediate and pressing prob ema. These latter are obvious. They are he products of the war strain super imposed on & recent excess of expan sion and some lack of symetry in de velopment. They concern particularly the status of governmental and rail way finances and -credits, as affected by temporary depression in Canadian business and by derangement of cus tomary sources of borrowed capital. Over-ambitious railway building, fol lowed by the shrinkage i,n traffic, has raised some question of possible re sort to the government guarantees on securities of the newer lines?but. it is to be noted, as to interest rather than to principal. ' Melnwhile. as in all countries, public revenues them selves have suffered; Canadian gov eminent receipts in me u?cni yi-ar 10 April fell off 23 per cent., while ex penses showed little contraction. On ly lately, has the curtailment in ptjre ly capital expenditures showed little contraction. Only lately has the cur tailment In purely capital expendi tures gradually become feasible. It Is to care for undertakings under way that the Dominion Is borrowing $40. 000,000 in New York, whither It now must turn instead of to London, and paying 5 per cent, therefore. But behind these near necessities looms the larger question of how Can ada's indefinite future is based on till age of the soil. Primarily the prob lem is therefore one of agricultural progress, both In acreage utilized and in increased unit yield attained through better cultivation, taught and demonstrated. There is a tremendous margin for expansion of improved farm area. There are numerous op portunities for applying special meth ods to diverse local conditions. Only a beginning of progress has been made in "mixed farming." There is the need, and with it soon the prob ible chance. for attracting ugricul- < ural Immigration op a larger scale ' han ever. Also, as linked with the '< ssuo of transportation, there aro mat ters of markets and marketing, land ind ocean shipping and terminal fu tilities. and, lnicdentally, of co-opera tive activity among farm producers. More cold storage and abattoir equip ment is also needed in Canada.

It is belieVed that the loss in killed and wounded will increase the total Russian casualties to 300,000. A Gen eva dispatch would Indicate that the Austrian and German losses are prob ably even higher. The Austrian, loss in the capture of Lublin alone was over 70,000, and Gen, Mackcnsen lost 36,000 in making an advance of seven milos with sovon army corps. It Ib known that the capture of ITzasnyoz cost the Germans more than 20,000. This does not take into account the Austrian and German losses in the assaults against Warsaw, Ivangorod. Novo Georglesk, and In the Valtic provinces. A Washington special to tho New York World says that at the request of Germany, the State Department has established a system of notifying Ambassador Gerard of sailings of all American passenger vessels. Gerard transmits this Intelligence to the Ger man foreign office" which in turn in forms the Admiralty. Wireless de tails are then sent to submarine com manders. Tho request is Interpreted as indicating Germany's anxiety to guide submarine from American lin ers. Officers of tho British steamer In veric, which arrived in Boston last Thursday with a $1,000,000 cargo of Oriental goods, were told by officers of a French cruiser of the capture of a German submarine in the Mediter ranean by them while the tanks of the submarine wore being filled from a Greek schooner. The prize was taken to Malta.

The men working on mining properties near the gla cier report that It has dropped from 50 to 100 feet since spring and (hat it has melted faster this year than ever before.

TO SHIP QUARTZ FROM IDITAROD Dave Stranberg is making arrange ments to- ship a quantity of quartz from the Upgrade to the Outside for treatment. In recent placer opera tions on the hillside at the head of Flat creek the uncovered bedrock has revealed quartz, and a quantity of this is being dislodged and sacked for shipment. While no well-defined quartz ledge has ever been discovered on the hills at the head of Flat creek, small string ers havo frequently been observed, and these are invariably rich. Numerous quartz locations aro maintained in the vicinity, and the recent discoveries at the Upgrade will lend interest to the search for quartz in that vicinity. ?(Idltarod Pioneer.) Daniel Singer, a wealthy sportsman of New York, is among the passen gers for Seward on the steamship Ad miral Watson. He will hunt for big game in the Kenal Peninsula section.

What brand of ball do they play In that league, anyhow f The secret's out Chrlaty Mathow son's poor form this year is explained. Howard Trumbo, contracting engineer from Cuba, on a visit to New York, is the man who did it. "Matty's got gold rheumatism," Trumo said. "It's an ailment that's common in Cuba. I haven't a doubt but what Matty got it in his shoulder when playing on our links last winter. Andre Anderson, Chlcagoan, who's looking for heavyweight title honors, has a novel excuse for his recent knockout in a Kentucky flght with Jack Dimon. Anderson, who is six feet, four inches, blames the k. o. on the fact that the ropes around the ring woro not high enough for him, He toppled over backwards, struck his head on a spike,?and?good night. He doesn't mention that Dillon's fist planted under his chin followed him over the ropes. There is no getting away from the fact that the Tigers cannot be given serious pennant consideration un less their pitching staff is materially improved before the season Js much older. Jennings has but one or two consistent pitchers, and the others are in-and-outers, who cannot win enough games to assure the Tigers beating out either the Red or White So>. But, with one more reliable twirler added, the team would be more dangerous. Last season Fritz Maisel led the American League with a total of 74 thefts. This season Fritz had It fi gured out that if ho could bat' above .300 he would bo 10 jumps beyond" tho next bloke in sight. But tho dop? slipped a cog for Fritz, old boy. The dope slipped when Cobb decided to lead the league himself. So far Fritz has stolen 39 bases?but he is still 21 back of Ty, who is out in front with 60. Maisel has a good chance of boating his 1914 mark. But Cobb now needs only 40 thefts more in 60 games to total 100 steals?a record unequall ed in the last 15 years of play under modern conditions. Joe Goddard, tho barrier champion of Australia, who fought Peter Jack son, Frank Slavin and the other big giants of the ring in bygone days, is to have his name kept alive in the boxing game by his son Joe. The latter is to shortly to make his debut as a welterweight in Australia. If he takes after his father Young Goddard will be a tough customer. Goddard, in his day, was one of the hardest game. He had wonderful endurance, besides being a powerful man. He spent some time in this country, de feating Joe McAucliffe, Peter Maher and others. He finally met Ed. Smith of Denver, at New Orleans, and to the surprise of the sporting world. Smith stopped him. BIG LEAGUE SCORES: YESTERDAY'S SCORES. Northwestern League At Seattle?Spokane 8. Seattle 1.

It has been commonly reported that arsenical spraying of trees in New England in order to climinite the gip sy moth has proved fatal to a great many birds, but according to Dr. O. L. Howard, chief of the United States bureau of entomology investigations fail to show any such result. The ab sence of birds from the regions where spraying has been practiced con be explained by the fact that the spray ing causes a scarcity of insect food and the birds aro obliged to seek this elsewhere.
