PUBLISHED EVERY WEDNESDAY THE ALASKA FAIR Mr. Godfrey Cheaiander, who is working to briug about au Alaska Fair j and Exposition to be held at Seattle, has visited this section and has, we understand, selected a number of our prominent citizens to act as represen tatives of the enterprise, at this end of i the line. It may be that Mr. Cheaiander has explained to these gentlemen the details of the project, and has been able to gain their support because^of a thorough knowledge of the plan, as outlined by him and his Seattle friends. However, the large majority of the citi zens of this section, the writer among the number, who have uot been so fa vored,can not be expected to approve a scheme that has, to all appearauces, so many dark spots. If the proposed fair is really to be held, and is to accomplish any good, it should have the undivided support of all Alaskans, that is if its promoters are really working for Alaska. There-11 fore the objections urged should be i answered in a clear and sensible man ner. Who decided that a fair should be 1 held? Why at Seattle? Why were not the citizens of Alaska consulted iu an-11 swering both of the above questious? How will a fair held iu Seattle beuefit Alaska? Why could not an Alaskan city have been chosen? Would not the same effort, which a fair will require, if expended in other channels,yield vast ly greater results for Alaska? We are an humble people?and have no voice in making the laws which we 1 must obey, or iu choosing the rulers who enforce them, but, are Alaskaus ? dogs, that they should be humiliated at the hands of citizens of Seattle, who ?would take from them the right to choose their own time and manner of displaying the fruits of their labors? The Ladies Aid Society of the Swed ish Evangelical Luthcrau church will hold an Ice Cream Social next Monday j the 4th, at 8 p. m., in the basement of the Church, ou Third and E streets. For the benefit of the Church building fund. Ice Cream 25 cents a dish, or j coffee and sandwiches. Come each and all, you are most cordially invited. I On last Monday, John Henson &, Co. \ transferred for P. H. Fox to Council man Sam Gius, the West of lot 1, in block 15; consideration $500. Mr. Gius will at once begin the erection of a large residence. The lot is one of the most sightly on Second street, and the erection of such a building as Mr. Gius ! contemplates will be a decided im- j provement to that street. Mr. Random Noblett, who baa just j returned from Portland, called at the ! News office yesterday to tell us all abont the Fair. He says that the ex- j hibitiou, takeu as a whole, is a very ; creditable oue. He was especially pleased with the government building and its contents. He iusists that the Alaska mineral exhibit is the best on the grounds, because in its solectiou' there was no effort to pick out rock; just for its beauty, regardless of its | real value, as has been done in so many cases. Many mining men were on the grounds and were deeply interested in the minerals from Alaska. * CHILDREN'S ENTERTAINMENT The children of the Catholic Church Sunday School will give an entertain ment in the new school hall on Thurs-! day, September 7th. The object of the undertaking is to raise funds to cover the expenses incurred by the improve- j ments lately begun around the altar in I the Church. The children, who are preparing numbers for the programme, are all excitement over their work, and j are anxious to undertake a more elab orate entertainment after the school I year begins. THE SCHOOL SOCIAL The members of the Douglas School Board are to be congratulated on the success of the social and house warm ing held at tho school house last night, and the ladies who worked so hard are also entitled to a largo share of the praise. A crowd of people, variously esti mated at from 700 to a thousand filled the large play-room where the pro- j gram was given, and overflowed into : the halls and class rooms up stairs. The Douglas Island Band, led by Prof. Fred Wasterlaiu, played a num ber of fine selections while tho people were gathering. Then Director Bach, of the school board, in a few words welcomed the people to the school j house aud introduced to them Prof. Chas. P. Benson, who talked for a few miuutes in a vein that was both happy j and hopeful. Mrs. Alexander, who has taught two successful terms iu our school, favored the audience with a song that brought forth hearty ap plause. Mrs. It. R. Brown played a selection on the piano. Messrs. Camp bell Brothers aud Hollywood gave an exhibition of skill on mandolin aud guitar. Miss Elva Galloway in a se lect readiug, carried her hearers from laughter to tears and back again. Mrs. James Christoo contributed a charm ing ballad, aud, iu response to au en core, sang "Anuie Laurie." Stacks of sandwiches, cords of cakes, piles of pickles and cups of coffee dis appeared like mist iti summer, and the pood ladies trembled lest some might go unfed. But the wouderful generosi ty of the givers had equalled the de- ? maud, and the twelve basketsful of fragments filled again the plates of th'e small boys, whose appetites know no such word as fail. Then the young gentlemen, with the approval of the young ladies, cleared away the benches that they might have i a little dance. I The people of Douglas have reason to expect that the public school will this year surpass all previous years in the work done, and, after the demon- j stration of last night, the teachers cau not but realize that they have the en-1 thusiatic support of all. I KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS District Deputy S. C.
