J. SHARICK, optician, JUNEAU | Notice to Creditors NOTICE is hereby pi veil that on Saturday ! the 10th day of December, 1905, the undersigned was duly appointed by I the United States Commissioner's Court for l the District of Alaska, Division No. 1, Juneau precinct, sitting in probate, as administra trix of the individual estate of Charles Wortmr.n, deceased, and that all creditors of said individual estate shall present their bills for payment within six mouths from the date of tile tirst publication of this notice. LENA WORTMAN, Administratrix, i First publication, January 17,1906. We said last week that the Editor of the Juneau Dispatch had earned his liars medal. We wish to apologize for that statement?it was premature. However, the gentleman saw the mis take, and has made good since. SUBJECT What does our Denomination stand for? What is the meaning of Congre gational Church? Will bo discussed I by Rev. D. Holford, B. D., on Sunday evening, Feb. 4th, at 8 o'clock. This sermon will be specially help ful to those who through lack of proper knowledge, bigotry, or honest doubt have failed to rightly apprehend the nature, spirit, and priuciple of the Congregational Church as a christian body. An hearty invitation is extended to all to be present at this service. There will be a good song service led by the Choir, in which all may take part. IT IS INSPIRING There is something inspiring in the j contemplation of Gov. Swineford, past his allotted three score and ten and in feeble health, going to the national capital, there to engage in combat with j younger men possessing the strongest kind of selfish motives to spur them on to activity, all in behalf of the plain people of Alaska and for the vindica tion of the American principle of self government that has been disregarded by the federal government in its deal ings with Alaska. The action of Gov. Swineford in accepting this task is one of highest patriotism. Should he be never so successful as on this mission the fruits of his labors will be for those whom he ere long will leave behind ! when he steps from this world to the [ great beyond. Gov. Swineford may feel assured that he takes with him on his journey across the continent the gratitude and well-wishes of his fellow Alaskans, and that whether or not he accomplishes ! that which he so greatly desires to ac-1 complish his name will ever be revered by the people of the great North for his selfsacrificing labors in their behalf, and by lovers of liberty and selfgovern ment wherever they may learn of his steadfastness in behalf of right, justice and truth.?Skagway Alaskan.
