KNOTTY ISSUES
TO BE DECIDED
BY U. S. JUDGE
Commissioner's Rights to
Hear Cases Outside of
Their Own Precincts
Is Questioned.
ARGUMENTS UP TODAY
Five Cases Delayed as
Result of Issues In
volved in Pending
Decision.
Five rases which have been
brought in the United States Com
missioner's court within the last
few days are being held up pending
decisions by Judge R. \V. Jennings
on writ of habeas corpuses which
have developeo on three of them.
The decisions when rendered will
: make clear a point of law which
has been bothering lawyers and offi
cers in Alaska for some time and
i will tell whether a United States
i Commissioner has the power to Bet
i in cases and hold court In precincts
outside of his own.
In a recent decision handed down
; by Judge Jennings In the Virch
case which wns brought to Juneau
I from Iiaines, it was held that any
1 Commissioner has jurisdiction in
, any case arising in the First Dlvis
! ion. at any time the complainant
| could show reasons why it should
not be tried before the Commission
!er sitting in the precinct wlmre the
case originated.
Now the Question has been
brought before the court as to
[whether any Commissioner can go
outside of his own precinct and
preside. The action grew directly
out of the arrest of Annie Jones
recently.
Commisioner J. B. Marshall is ab
sent from the city and Commissioner
Henson, of Douglas, was called to
issue the warrants and to hear the
cases. After the arrest of the wo
man, on three charges, a writ of ha
beas corpus was sworn out by her
attorney in an effort to get a decis
ion ot Judge Jennings, that Com
missioner Henson can sit at his
court in Douglas and issue warrants
and hear cases originating in Ju
neau during the obsence of Com
missioner Marshall, but as to wheth
er Henson can come to Juneau, out
side of his own precinct and sit on
cases, is the question.
The arguments on the writs will
be heard late this afternoon, and in
the meantime, pending the decision
of the court, hearing of the cases
against the Jones woman, the caBO
against J. R. Raymond for assault,
and thq case against Nick Demc
rotees, charged with assault, are be
ing postponed.

ALASKAN IN THE
TRENCHES CLOSE
TO DEATH ONCE
Buried by a Fritz but
Dug Out in Time to
Save Life, Is Now
in Hospital.
SHELLS DKTUP DEAD
Dead on the Battlefields
Remain Unburied as
Graves Would Be
Opened by Fire
Fred C. Spray, formerly of Nome,
; and other parts of Alaska, perma
; nently disabled in the battle front
! of France, has been sent back to
i England, according to a letter re
ceived by his brother, Lafe E. Spray,
deputy clerk of the court in Juneau.
Young Spray served throughout the
Spanish-American war with the First
Washington volunteers in the Philip
pines and when mustered out joined
his brother at Nome. Later he set
tled in Vancouver, B. C. He enlist
ed with the 17th Canadian Overseas
Battalion and was attached to the
contingent of sharp-shooters at the
front.
A few excerpts from the letter
which is dated at Eastlelght, Eng
land, Nov. 11 follows:
"1 am back in England and still
above ground although 'Fritz' had
me buried under five feet of it; and
I was just about all In when I was
UUK UUl. I wu.1 milieu ?#j nmu i?->
called one of 'Fritz' coal boxes';?
the one shell killed one of my mates
and wounded the other, and I am
glad to be alive. \At present I am
in a rest camp for walking patients,
but am leaving here for a surgical
hospital In London ? * ? ? my back
is injured. I can walk but cannot
sit, stand or lie in one position for
any length of time ? ? ? ? The Span
ish American war was like an old
woman's tea party compared to one
section of the battle front I have
just left ? ? ? ? i have seen thou
sands of unburied dead of both sides
?no use to bury them as the shells
only dig them up again."
ATLIN DISTRICT
OUTPUT GROWING
SAYS PAUL GEYER
SEATTLE, Nov, 30.?Despite the
shortage of labor in the Atlin min
ing district in Northern British Co
lumbia. the gold output for the sea
son has been greater than for any
year since the big rush in 1898, ac
cording to Paul \V. Greyer, mana
ger of the Columbian Mines Com
pany of Atlin, says the Seattle
Times. He is in Seattle with Mrs.
Greyer and is at the Frye Hotel.
"Efficiency has been greatly ham
pered this year because of the fact
that many of the experienced hy
draulic men have enlisted for war
services," Baid Greyer. "New men
have had to be trained to take their
places and this has caused a ser
ious loss to operators.
Things on Upgrade.
"Despite this, however, everyone
in the district prospered last sea
son. Things have been on the up
grade since the summer of 1913.
In that year the minimum of out
put was reached since the days of
discovery. It took a deal of opti
mism to hold on through the lean
years but wc are beginning to feel
repaid now.
"Three rediscoveries were made
this summer. On one creek there
were no less than 20 small opera
tors at work, and all making money.
Quartz operations will begin on a
large scale next year if the peo
ple Interested can obtain fncilites
for smelting their ore."
SID TERRY REPORTS
Sid Terry, formerly commissary
man at the Perseverance, and who
left here several months ago to ac
cept a position as Captain in a Can
adian contingent, lias sent a card to
H. Humpheries, which wns re
ceived yesterday, saving he li at
jresent in Shorncliffe, England, and
is well and happy.

H. C. 0. L.~Ts~DISCUSSED
Present Advance in Food
Is Due to Specula
tion of Various
Classes.
NEW YORK, Dec. 7.?New high
records in commerce and Industry
for the month of November, with
manufacturers and traders pressed to
the utmost to supply enormous de
mands are shown In a review of
conditions mado public here by
Pierre Jay, chairman of the Federal
Reserve bank of New York. The re
port states that the further advance
In p'Iccb which begnn three monthe
ago "has developed into a widespread
and rather speculative movement in
commodities and securities."
Referring to the high cost of liv
ing, .Mr. Jay says:
"The average salaried man finds It
burdensome to meet the additional
cost of such necessities lis food,
clothing, footwear and coal. Mer
chants and large buyers of raw ma
terials are uncertain and anxious
about making large important com
mitments. Manufacturers of standard
goods which sell at standard rates
may be obliged to revise long es
tablished terms."
Pointing out that lubor is fully
employed at high wages, the review
adds:
"It Is notod that saving Is com
mon enough among the foreign ele
ment, but often remarked that oth
er workmen generally arc spending
too freely for luxuries and not tak
ing advantage of an unusual oppor
tunity to lay something by for a
rainy day."
