Uliner, editor arid publisher of the Daily K veiling Keeorrl, of Juueau. Take it II You Want To. The editor of the News recently in terviewed Mr. Kaufman, the president of the Juneau Chamber of Commerce, upon the much disputed question of giving the Canadians a free port of en try on Alaska soil. After numerous conversations involving profound thought and deep meditation, we?Mr. Kaufman and the editor?have conclud ed to offer the Canucks the Taku route which is by far the U*st of any leading into the Atlin district. We hope this generous offer, on our part, will not be declined and all we ask is for suffic ient time in which to deliver the goods. We will give the Canadians three weeks and one day in which to make up their minds whether or not they will accept this proposition. NEXT TO TREADWELL. Douglas City and Juneau Their Future. I Jack of the city of .Juneau there is a small stream that empties iuto the hay above the town, and heads way up in i the mountains. The little valley along the stream varies from 1(H> to ."KX1 yards in width. In the summer there is a good wagon road leading up this valley on which a team can easily haul a good, big load. This valley is called the l>a sin and is some four or live miles in length. Some of the finest ore in all Alaska is found up the basin and there are numerous little stamp mills dis tributed along the way. Placer mining is also carried on in the summer. It is iu this basin that Fred Xowe 11 is driv ing a tunnel and getting ready to en gage iu placer miuiug on a huge scale. Within one year the mining operations in the basin will be next in magnitude to Treadwell 011 Douglas Island. With 880 stamps pounding away on the Is land and nearly as many more in the basin, which, added to the output of the placer mines, will certainly make Douglas City and .Juneau two of the most prosjierous and permanent towns to be found anywhere. There is no oc casion for any business man iu these two cities to ever take a gloomy look at the future. If they can't prosper here they can't auy other place on; earth. i Mfc fcA.^IAUIA:>3. Forty Have Located Claims in the Porcupine Country. Their Location Notices Recorded. While at Juuean last week we were pleased to meet Judge Malcolm, the United States Commissioner for that eity. and he informed the writer that no less than forty Canadians had located claims in the Porcupine coun try, and that the notices had been re corded in tlie records of his office. How many of these are from British Columbia we do not know, but there is one thing we are reasonably certain of. and that is. that every mother's son from there who has taken a claim in United States territory should be fired out of the country.* A people so de void of the sense of shame and justice as to pass an e\ post facto law for the purpose of defrauding Americans out of their claims already located, and for the right of entry to which, a license fee was demanded and accept ed. should not be permitted to locate claims on American soil, and if the government so far forgets itself as to permit it the miners in that district should take the law in their own hands and drive them out. He (iot There. Judge Winn returned from Skaguay last week where lie ha*l a busy time. He instituted a number of suits while there, both civil and criminal. Among the latter were some twenty that in cluded the charges of riot, assault, and malicious destruction of i?roi>erty. He ilso secured a temporary injunction to prevent six of the leading packers i from injuring and breaking down the ?ates on the trail. He also commenc ed an action to straighten out the Fry Bruhn business of Skaguay. The rep resentative of that firm was not satis factory. and it took a suit to get the j owners into the possession of their j property, and Judge Winn did it. The Judge is a good lawyer and desorves the largo practice that he has secured in Alaska. ENEMIES OF ALASKA. Senators Male, (JalHnj;er and Hate Will Prob ably Defeat Legislation this Session. Senator Carter recently tried to get consideration for the Alaska bill in the senate. He made a request for uuani- i mous consent for a night session to read the bill and stated that the inter ests of Alaska rendered it important that the bill should be passed this ses sion. Senator Hoar stated that the bill could be passed, as the bill provid ing for the Revised Statutes, was with out reading. This suggestion brought out objections from Hale, Gallinger and Bate, all of whom argued that such a proceeding would be bad precedent. Hale objected to the consideration of the bill, and refused to give his consent to the reading of the bill. Gone to See "His Girl." Col. Friedrich, the district attorney, was a passenger on the down trip of the Cottage City last week, doing to see his host girl we'll bet four bits. S. E.
