Jennings which declared the taxes Imposed on all canneries in Alaska by acts passed by the Legislatures of 1913 and 1915. were valid and collect able and judgments were entered against the Alaska Salmon Compnny amounting to $5,933.63. Transcripts are being prepared by the Clerks of fice and tho case will be appoaled to the Circuit Court of Appoals for- fi nal decision at once. All cannery companies in Alaska, with the possible exception of two, havo agreed, through their attorneys to abide by the decisions of the higher court. John H. Cobb, as attorney for the Torrltory was called to Seattle several days ago to confer with tho attorneys and at that time it was agreed among all that one case should be submitted to the court, on certain agreed and stipulated facts, for a de cision and that all should abide by thisdeclslon when rendered. It was al so agreed to appeal the case at once to the higher court for final word, Tho Judgment as rendered by Judge Jennings holds, "That compliance with all of the conditions and payments of the license fees Imposed by tho Acts of Congress as set forth in tho agreed statement does not release the defend ant from the payment of license taxes Imposed by the acts of the Alaska Legislature approved May 1, 1913, and tho further act approved April 29, 1915. "It is thoreforo ordered and ad Judged that tho Territory of Alaska do have and recovor from the defend ant, the Alaska Salmon Company, for taxes for the year 1915 tho sum of $1290.03." Tho judgment also stimu lates for the collection of the 1913 and 1914 taxes to the amount of $4643.60. All costs are assessed against the de fendant. ???ao4lAn ??

"Whether or not the owners of pri vate salmon hatcheries who aro also engaged in the busineBB of canning salmon in Alaska are, by virtue of the certificate Issued to them by tho Sec rotary of Commerco and Labor for salmon fry liberated from their said hatcheries, entitled by virtuo of said certificate to havo the same applied pro tanto in payment of all license fees and charges not only Imposed by tho said Acts of Congress but also by the said acts of the Legislature of Alaska." The decision as rendered by Judge Jennings upholds the Territory in every count. John H. Cobb represent ed the Territory and Z. R. Cheney acted for the Alaska Salmon Com pany. FERRY FIGHT IS ON WAY TO HIGHER COURT Transcripts of the evidence in tho caso of C. P. Morgan et al vs. the Juneau Ferry and Navigation Com pany, have been prepared under the direction of the Clerk of the Court and were started on their way south today. They will be submitted to the Circuit Court of Appeals for a final decision in the matter. The question involved in this caiie is whether tho City Council of the City of Douglas has tho right to grant a lease on a city float which has been built and erected by the people for the use of the people to a private concern or corporation. The cose was heard before Judge Jennings recently and a temporary injunction against tho Juneau Ferry Company was granted. .j. COURT NOTE8 I I 4 ?

NELSON'S SHOE STORE "PRICES THE LOWEST" BEARS LOSE IN EIGHT ON STOCK Of ALASKA GOLD News comes from tho East that the bear campaign against Alaska Gold stock has ceased?at least that it has been driven to cover by confident buyers who are familiar with tho property. Tho Boston News Bureau, edited and owned by C. W. Barron, who is alBO proprietor of the Wall Street Journal and tho Philadelphia News Bureau, throe of tho loading financial Journals of the country, contains tho following concerning Alaska Gold MinoB company and the recent boar campaign against its stock in its is sue of December 13: "Those who know most about the affairs of the Alaska Gold Minos Co. profosB to bo undisturbed by tho re cent slump in tho price of tho shares beyond a feeling of disappointment that some Innocent stockholders may havo become needlessly frightened to I tho point of losing all faith in the on j torpriso. "That there has been an organized bear campaign in tho stock from over $30 per share down to tho recent low prico of 21% 1b generally conceded. It is also understood that theso bears have now covcrod their shorts at a very nice profit and are advising the purchase of tho stock. "Of course any decline which cuts the market price of an investment in halves does not add to one's peace of mind. Some had oven expected that once the stock touched 40 it would indefinitely remain there. "In addition to other disconcerting events it seems that the Alaska Gold stockholders were recently circulariz ed by tho promoters of an unknown gold mining venture. They were strongly advised to sell their Alaska shares and invest the proceeds In the now proposition. Wo have heard that In connection with this campaign somebody may have been using the United States malls fraudulently nnd that tho matter will be Investigated by the postofflce authorities. "Ofllctals of the Alaska Gold Co. state that there Is absolutely no mys tery about tho property under ground or above ground. Any one can visit the mine and the mill and talk freely with tho officials at all times. Thore Is nothing to conceAl. It Is to be ex pected, they say, as was tho case In the development of tho copper prop erties under the samo management, that low-grade ores should now and then bo' encountered at points where higher assays were expected, to say nothing of Innumerable operating problems which arise in the develop ment of a big property and which must bo fought out one by one. "It Is true that Alaska Gold will not bo ablo to mine and treat 10,000 tons of $1.50 net ore as soon as was ex pected, and In pushing up tho tonnnge to 6000 tons dally it has been neccs Bary In the orderly and systematic development of underground stoplng aroas to include a lot of low grade ma terial. This has brought down the av crago recovery at times to under $1 per ton. "Tho suggestion has been made, however, that if stockholders ore too impatient to await the consummation of the far-reaching plans of tho man agement which might necessitate at tho start the Inclusion of oulto a ton nage of low-grade stuff along with the high grade ores, they might be better satisfied If the management confined itself to tho dally treatment of say 4000 tons of $1.50 ore. This can be done without difficulty. "9ome silly stories have boon put aflont, anonymously, of course, that the Alaska plant was a failure and that the entire milling process would have to bo revised, etc., etc. If there Is any one phase of the company's af fairs about which there Is the most enthusiastic satisfaction It Is the mill ing end. This mill has far exceeded expectations both, as to lower costs and higher recoveries tliau had been originally estimated. "It is pointed out that the best en gineers nnd mining experts of the country have put the stamp of the'r approval on the Alaska Gold mine. Messrs. Bradley. Mackenzie nnd. Ro qua of the Alaska-Juneau, which ad joins and will mine a continuation of Alaska Gold's ore bodies, have given , It their O. K. The same approval has been given by Messrs. Leon and Jen-: nlngs of the United States Smelting I Co., to say nothing of Messrs. Jack ling and Holden. Some of the larg est holders declare they are quite as willing to follow these men as tho Waldorf bears." 1 f I Flowers for ChrlstrAas should 1 be ordered early, for two rea- | ! sons..
