RUBY OISTR1CT RECEIVED BY MRS. MARTHA McKlNNON A most Interesting letter has been received by Mrs. Martha McKinnon 1 rom her nephew. Arthur Lutro. who I* now on Long Creek, In the Ruby <1 strict. Mr. Lutro Is well known hero and he mentions many former Ju veaultes. also gives details regard ing their movements. The letter Is dated. Long Creek. Nov. 28. and was received here In the last mail from the Westward. The letter In part says: "About Sept. 27. my uncle and Charles Walker started prospecting w.'th ono of those Keystone drills. I was working with them until Xov. 1. During this time we sunk 27 holes ranging in depth troro fourteen to six ty feet. In most of the holes we struck wet ground and as a result we had to drive casing and thus it took us much longer. We ran onto a streak about 35 feet wide and the best average we could give this was about 75 cents to the foot and the depth to bedrock about 22 feet. I do not know for sure whether they will work th!s prospect this summer or not "I met young Antoue Intergaard when he came down from Fairbanks bound over to the creeks to see his brother Knute. Antone and anothor lellow have a lay over on Spruce creek and they are busy prospecting it now. Knute put another holo down 'he other day and found the paystrcak about 30 feet wide and waa securing onus ranging from ten cents to $3. Knute and his new partner. Ernie Mlehoff. who bought out Hans Tel 'earn and Gust. Hanson, are busy scouring the country getting a plant. 1 believe they will secure a plant from Alex Capewell and Allan Mc Donald which Is over on Trail creek. Everything looks bright and rosy for Knute and he Is sure to make a good piece of money. "On Thanksgiving, Uncle John and I went to Ruby. There were two nights of dancing and It made a great hit with me. 1 went with Miss Thorn Slippun to both. Thora's father went nto Toiovann on the stampede and has established a sash nnd door fac tory there. Ho made $900 the first month In business. Mrs. Slippun plans on joining him in the summer and Thora will undoubtedly go out side and enter n girls' school. DOUGLAS TELEPHONE SYSTEM IS BEING OVERHAULED BY MANAGER WEBSTER Manager Edw.

A Seattle reporter, who interviewed Mrs. Hazzard upon her return there, mid: "Although Mrs. Hazzard asserts her belhf that tli% penal system is all wrong, in that it seeks to punish rath ?r than reform by love and friendship, ihe absolves the authorities in Walla Walla from any cruelty to prisoners. She expresses adm'ration for the man ner in which Supt. Drum conducts the prison."
