Our friend Blumenthal has received word from Dawson that his mining claims that are beiii? worked this wiu- j ter are unusually rich, and that the i clean-up in the spring will give him a , sack of 110 small dimensions. He got 1 this word through a letter received by a party in Juneau and there is no doubt ? as to the truth of the good news. The News rejoices with Louie on his good fortuno and we hope the sack may bo as largo as a crockery crate. , Miss Alice M. Jordison, musical in structor, will be in Douglas City on i Mondays aud Thursdays until further , notice, and can bo found at Mrs. Chis- j ? holm's residence over Eastberg& John oon'G. I A Surprise Wedding. J. E. Coffin, of Douglas City, Alaska, full blood Indian, was first known as tl mission boy in the Friends Mission 11 I this city nine years ago. It was iV lis school in which he liegan his edu- hi ition and where he remained for three j* pars, after which he was employed as * iterpreter for Charles Edwards in his a! ork among the Kake Indians. For K x months he served in this capacity, ?esiring a better education, that he ? liglit be more able to devote his life d 3 the uplifting of his race, he was then <k put to the Industrial Government ^ chool at Chemawa, Oregon, where he ? pmained two years, during which time n e learned the shoemaker's trade. c* After he returned to Alaska he was gain engaged as interpreter for the t1 [ake Indians, this time by the Friends' lissionary Board of Oregon Yearly ^ looting, where he remained for more ^ ban two years employing his spare mo- v nents to the application of his trade. f He has proved himself to be a young \ nan of rare ability; a capable interpre or having a general knowledge of both i he Thlingit and English language, an t "? ? " " ? i ixccllent pilot for smaii uoats m mu 5. E. Alaskan waters, and exliibits a t alent for music which might be envia- ( )lo to one of the more enlightened race, i After completing his engagement ! vith the Missionary Board he engaged ( 11 the mercantile business at Ketchi- < can. On the loth ult. he returned to Douglas City, and, to the surprise of J lis many friends, was married on the j kind (Washington's birthday) to Irene j [f. Beard, a full blood Indian girl who 1 las been for five years in the Friend's ' Mission on this island. The wedding ook place in the Mission school house it high noon in the presence of many , nvitcd guests both native and white, < Rev. Replogle officiating. The services ; were short and impressive. After con gratulations, the newly wedded couple ind guests repaired to the house of 1 Charlie Kake, an uncle of the bride, ; a-here they were hospitably served to i delicious wedding dinner. , The bride and groom were presented i with several presents: among tlieni were a glass water pitcher, two glass cjoblets, a soup bowl by Mrs. Harvey and Mrs. Churchill; halibut line and a set of table spoons, Mr. and Mrs. Rep logle: table linen. Miss Jennie Laurence; can of jam, E. W. Weesner. and a large water pitcher by Jennie Kake. Their many friends wish them much joy and happiness in their wedded life. Keau trie Leader. Wo observe by a Seattle exchange that the Post-Intelligencer is losing its grip and that other dailies in tho State of Washington are forging ahead aud will soon take first place in tho journal-. istic field in that state. Of late we have been reading tho Tacorna Ledger, and find it a wide-gauge, first-class pa per, aud we only wonder that its man agement has done so little towards in troducing it in Alaska. The Ledger is by far the best paper of tho two and it ought to find a ready sale in this dis trict. J. W. Kerry of this city left on the Wolcott Monday night for Dawson, lie takes a planing mill and other machinery with him for his brother A. S. Kerry. The News trusts ho may1 have a pleasant and safe journey. We are pained to hear of the serious illness of Mr. Geo. T. Uliner, editor and publisher of the Juneau Daily Record. W. C. Pedlar tho wide-awake mer chant of Juneau aud Skaguay returned from the north the dm of the week. At Berncr.s Bay. Mr. George Bach, superintendent of le Alaska Gold Mining Co., of Berncrs ay, was a caller on the Xews last louday. lie has lived with his family t Juneau this winter and made regu ir trips to look after the company in vests. The Alaska Indiana Co. has a m-stamp mill, air compressors, and II other machinery necessary, on the round, and the buildings, including a oarding house, are up, and as soon as tie water begins to flow from the lountuinsthe stamps will commence ropping. The Alaska Indiana prop rty adjoins that of the Jualin Mining to. and there, as well as in hundreds f other places in this part of Alaska, here is an abundance of ore to run the lills until Gabriel sounds his trump \ Tin we are but few men in Alaska who Liiderstand the mining business and iiining properties any better than does dr. Bach and tiie News man undertook he task of getting a few opinions from lim unawares, and succeeded too. Vhen we say that Mr. Bach is posted, vc. have taken into consideration the act that he has visited all the mining ocalities of the United States and Old vfexico, and spent seven years in South Ymerica in that business, and then he ias been "strictly in it" since he came ;o Alaska. Mr. Bach thinks this part of Alaska ,vi 11 be the greatest mining country in llie world and that in quantity and juality of ore, it is not surpassed any .vhero. We were especially pleased to lear him express a very favorable opin 011 of the Porcupine country. He is enthusiastic upon the mining interests >f southeastern Alaska. "Come to Berners Bay for a week and let me sliow you around," said Mr. Bach to the News man as he was leav ing. We don't let such an opportunity pass us and our readers can expect a write up for that country in tho spring when the ground settles. Ten Years Off. Just after the last term of court wo published short biographical sketches if the District Judge, Attorney, Mar dial, and Clerk. We heard from the District Attorney on the subject and in speaking on the subject of our sketch lie says: "There is one slight objection, that is you have added ton years to my ago. While 1 do not make pretensions to youth, yet 1 am only forty-eight in stead of fifty-eight, but a little matter of ten years doesn't cut much figure anyway." Good. We accept the reprimand, for it was through carelessness on our part that the mistake occurred, and while Col. Friedrich is only forty-eight in years he is fully fifty-eight in experi ence, and if you can name any kind of a "swim" he hasn't boeu in, do it. Few men would come from a social confer like San Francisco to Alaska and so joy fully adapt themselves to the changed conditions, as Col. Friedrich has done. He can view an Indian dance or observe the grace and eloquence of a Louvre high kicker with as much composure as he would look at a woman attired in a low-necked dress at a "150" swell Ju neau ball. The Col. is all right, no matter where you put him. P. II. Fox. the busy merchant, went to Juneau last Monday. It is not often that Mr. Fox escapes from his place of business. lie perpetrated no jokes while away, in fact he looked as sober and determined as the woman at the lung-tester. ADMINISTRATOR'S SALE.
