SEATTLE, Aug. 24.?Either Chief Lang Is not telling the truth about gambling in Seattle or else he is so ignorant of conditions that is is un fit for office. One day last week Lundln lost a Chinese gambling case in Justice Brinker's court through the failure of deputy sheriffs to remember what they saw when the raided the joint. On the day of the trial the mys terious word went around to close up, for a while at least The Joints be low the lino closed. But the very next day they opened again. It was all right The State had failed to convict The excite ment would dlo down. On thai day I met an acquaintance, James R. Little, a special investiga tor and formerly United States depu ty marshal entrusted with the sup pression of liquor traffic among the Alaska Indians. I told Little what the police had told me?that the police, made wary by the gambler's case in Brinker's court, had ordered the lid clamped down, and that nothing short of a search warrant and a squad of armed men with axos could find a game any where in town. Little laughed. Twenty Places Run Wide Open "I can take you." he said, "to 20 places running wide open right now. I can take you to a place exactly similar to the one which the deputy shetriffs couldn't remember about In Brinker's court. You don't need to be a sleuth to find a game." Together we went to 219 Occident al Avenue. There was the usual store in front, with a Chinese behind the counter. There was the usual hallway. . I ?\o UUU ttiuppvu US, UU UUC 4UCOUUU' cd us; we walked in. We found ourselves In a large room, sheriffs couldn't remember about the tables or playing. They were all white men. There were no negroes or Chinese playing. The only Chin ese there were dealing. Four Games Going There were' four games in full blast ?one chuck-a-Iuck, two oraps and a lottery. Little and I played - chuck-a-luck? and lost; played craps?and lost; pur chased lottery tickets for the "Hung Fuk" drawing at 11 p. m.?and may have won a fortune, for all I know. I didn't go back at 11 to find out. During the hour we spent at 219 Occidental Avenne the crowd came and went at will. The police could have popped in and nabbed us with ease. The paraphernalia was on the tables. The money was on tho ta bles. Each dealer had before him a large sum of money. No Secrecy About Place There was no secrecy about It A dozen detectives could have drifted In, and at a signal, arrested the en tire lot of us. ALASKA STAGE COACH AT LAST SUPPLANTED FAIRBANKS, Aug. 10.?The day of the grizzled stage driver, the hero of so many trips over the long 400 mile trail between the coast and the Interior, Is coming to a close. In his place will come a more deeper and debonair individual, wearing gauntlet gloves and smoking cigar ettes?the chauffeur. Volney Rich mony, superintendent In Alaska for the Northern Commercial Company, yesterday announced that his com pany. which holds the United States winter mail contract from the coast to the interior, has decided to re place the horse stages with automo biles. Since 1903, when the first stage ran over the rough trail between Fair banks and Valdez, the stage drivers have been among the most pictur esque figures of Alaskan winter life. In all kinds of weather, across the mountain ranges and through over flows. they have taken the mails, ex press and passengers. Sometimes they have saved the lives of maroon ed mushers on the trails. Mr. Richmond announced that the automobiles will come lu this fall, for use during the winter. Horses will be wept near the summit in case any emergency may come up.

SKAQWAY URGED TO BOOST FOR HORTICULTURAL FAIR Everyono In Skagway la invited to Join the Horticultural society and; take a port In the preparations for tho coming fair. Come inBlde and be "one of the bunch," and boost. Don't stand outside In the rain and kick,1 for unless you present your ideas to the meetings of the society, the mem bers will not havo them to consider and act upon. A society cannot adopt suggestions made on the street after Its meeting is over?so if you havo anying good to propose, come to the meeting next Monday night and givo your neighbors the benefit of your ideas. In formor years the affairs of the society have been conducted in the free and easy Alaskan' way by mass meetings with satisfactory results in providing a good fair, and while this year an effort is being made to sys tematize the handling of the business and make the organization more con crete by establishing a membership roll and a constitution and by laws, there is no intention to exclude any one. "Come in, tho water's fine."? (Skagway Alaskan.) ( C0L0NIE8 TO BECOME POWER IN EUROPE The presence of Sir Robert Borden as Prime Minister of Canada, at a meeting of the Imperial Cabinet has marked a definite step forward in tho evolution towards an Imperial part nership between the Mother Country and the Overseas Dominions. With out attempting to forecast the lines upon which the gradual formation of an Imperial Constitution may pro ceed as a result of this significent step, it may bo useful to consider the immediate needs of Imperial consul tation in connection with the great world conflict which is now raging. In an article published in The Daily Telegraph of June Id, a short account of the issues at stake in this war as affecting tho Dominions was given, and something was said regarding certain questions upon which it is now seen that a personal exchange of views will be necessary, long beforo the terms of peace settlement come to be discussed. While it is probably universally admitted by Home and Overseas statesmen that an Imporial Conference of the normal type,?that would, in the ordinary way, have met In 1915?would be out of the question in time of war, yet there is a strong feeling, more especially in Australia, that an Informal meeting of the na ture indicated by the Hon. J. C. Wat son .ex-Prime Minister of Australia) when recently in this country, should be held this year in order to discuss not only problems that may arlso in the future, but also questions that already exist However, before referring again to such questions, it may bo well to re call that the Overseas Dominions have every reason to expoct both full information and adequato consulta tion on matters of foreign affairs, in which their interests are involved, from the course which events took at the Imperial Conference of 1911.? (London Tolegraph.) BOSTON DISCUSSES JUNEAU MINES * ? BOSTON? General Manager Jack ling of the Alaska Gold Mines Com pany, wires President Hayden that the mill treated, during tho month of July. 118,200 tons of ore, as against 90,792 tons in June; 73,500 in May; 57,000 in .April and 40,000 In March. This makes the total milled up to tho firat of August approximately 380,000 tons. In addition to this, there has been ore broken and in the stopes, up to the first of July, to the amount of 798,557 tons. Tho average heads on all the ore sent to the mill up to date is about $1.40 per ton. Due to the fact that the mill has developed a tonnage ca pacity nearly twice as large as or iginally planned it has been neces sary to prepare, as rapidly as possi ble, more stopes in the mine so as to have them available for the increas ed tonnages. The preparation of the new stopes has temporarily compell ed the company during this period to draw about 25 per cent, of the ore from the old stopes on the No. 10 lev el, where the higher grade ore had already been extracted previous to the purchase of the property by the present company. The mine will, therefore, not be in a position to send ore of an average grade to the mill until the stopes which ahe now being prepared are in condition so that ore can be drawn proportionately fro meach of them. During July, the production was gradually increased from 3,000 tons at the first of the month up to 5,000 tons per day the latter part of the month, and while the costs will be even lower when the full 10,000 tons are treated daily, the preliminary es timate shows that the cost for July for evcrj- possible item?mining, mill ing and transporthtion and including all overhead charges, will be 65 cents per ton. This compares with an original es timate, at the time the property was bought, of 75 cents per ton.?(Bos ton News Bureau.) ? . NAMES IS NAMES ? a Anno Does lives at St. Henry, O.

HUB THAT ?*+++??????????? + * ECONOMIC CONDITION OF + RUSSIA * . . . . . ??????????????? With tho greatost wholesale destruc tlon ot treasure In all history taking place, with war-wrought losses piling up In such stupendous aggregates as no panic ever caused, tho question as to how long each of the belligerents can stand tho fearful strain upon Its resources is becoming as Important and fully qs interesting as are any of those stirring questions growing out of the purely military phase of the world war. In n bulletin just issued tho National Geographical society sketches the pre-war economic condi tion of Russia, which, having ex pended 13,500,000,000, having lost hun dreds of millions more, la facing an indefinite futuro of warfare undis mayed, confident. Tho bullotin reads as follows: Before the War "Commercial and Industrial revolu tions wero stirring In Russia before the war! the work of opening up its magnificent domain was bolng rapid ly carried forward! plans for devel oping its almost unlimited resources wore in process of confident organiza tion; modern cities wore springing up like mushrooms in rich Siberia; tex tile, metal and other Industries were laying firm foundations, and foreign trades had been brought up to about $1,500,000.,000. What has been called the "most powerful country of the fu ture' was finding itself, was preparing to enter upon the centuries of expan sion that it will need to exhaust tho possibilities of its boundless natural wealth. "About two and one-half timse lar ger than the United States, with an area of 8,650,000 square miles and a population of 170,000,000, which is in creasing at the rate of 3,000,000 year ly, Russia's natural resources resem ble those of this country, and are pro portionate. It has nearly 900,000,000 acres of forests?compared with the 544,000,000 acres of the United States ?much of it which, even now, is care fully administered, and which, one day, will be the world's first source of timber. It has 250,000,000 acres of land under cultivation, while this country has a cultivated area about twice as great; but Russia can ex pand her farm lands twenty-fold and 8till leave virgin land to the future. It can become the granary of tho world. While its mineral wealth has not been carefully surveyed, known supplies of petroleum, metals and fuel abound. Russia is a continent in its self, and, likely, the richest of them all. "Scarcely two score of years have passed since Russia began with sor lous. purpose the task of her Internal development Progress, during the firat 30 years of this period, was hesi tant. In tho last decade, however, it has doubled its foreign trade, of which 56 per cent is exports,; still this foreign commerce is less than half that of tho United States. But Russia before the war had scarcely begun to gather to gather steam for the prosecution of her tasks. There remain hundreds of millions of acres of fat lands to bo brought under the plow; tens of thousands of factory' plants to build; rich mines to bo op ened; great railway and canal sys tems to be built; millions of homc buildcrs to be moved into Siberia, the silver east of the Czar's empire, and many millions of illiterates to be educated to a higher standard of life and of efficiency. Russia is a vast storcnouse or raw materials, and must for many years remain a purchaser of machinery and manufactured goods in increasing quantities. Yet the mills of Russia consume $130,000,000 worth of raw cotton annually, and Russian iron and steel rails have found their way into competition in the markets of the many bought more from Russia than any other three countries and sold to the Russians about half of all their imports. These two countries did a tremendous, thriving business with one another before the war and an im mense stream of German capital was flowing into the northern empire for investment. England, Holland, Aus tralia, Hungary and Italy, in the or der named, followed Germany in bus iness with the Russians. German trade promotion was thoroughly or ganized throughout the land, and in Riga, Petrograd and Moscow names of thousands of German firms could be seen. "Foodstuffs formed about 65 per cent, of Russia's total export trade; raw materials and partly manufac tured goods about 30 per cent, and manufactures about 3 per cent. Rus sia imports all those things that high ly developed and specialized coun tries have for sale. Therefore, Rus sian trade has been a most valuable one for the older nations. "Russia, as are but few other great nations, is self-sustaining in the mat ter of raw materials, but the Musco vite empire is dependent upon the factories of other lands for every step that it may take in the upward scale; it is even dependent upon for eign manufactures to maintain stand ards in its wide-sweeping territory as high as they are today. There are fa bulous riches awaiting transmutation by Russian industry, but Russian in dustry has hardly passed the birth." A Means of Measurement "A platform Is a very important thing," said tho statesman. "Yes," replied Senator Sorghum, "a platform sometimes enables a man to show, by disregarding it, that he is superior to his party."?(Washtng ton Star.)
