Tbe Seattle Chamber of Commerce refasea to have anything to do with the Alaska Central quarrel. Tbe Guggenheims have agreed to allow the common herd to nee the pass through Keystone canyon. A1 and Eugene LaRose, t<*o citizens of VVhiteborse, were drowned in White horse rapids on Saturday, June 20th. The Alaska trade for April shows a falling off which is attributed to the panic conditions existing in tbeStatea. Dr. M. Mason, of Los Angeles, and Fred Bleler, of Richardson, lost their lives in the Tanana by the upsetting of a boat. Still another candidate for delegate to Congress is M. EL Koonoe, who owes his nomination to the Rampart Min ers' Association. Tbe river steamer Tanana made tbe trip from Dawson to Fairbanks, ? dis tance of $1,002 miles in 3 days, 14 hours and 50 minutes. Seattle hotels will not raise rates during tbe session of the grand aerie of Eagles. They are probably afraid the birds will fly away. An oyster bed has been discovered Dear Cordova.

I The report comes from the PY>rty Mile that seventy live men are working f on Chlckon creek, the same numbor on | Wade and as many more on Walker's fork. The Sentinel suggests that, for the want of a Celebration the people of ; Wrangell will have nothing to do on the Fourth of July but sit and suck their thumb. Some epecimons of sylvanide or? found Inst summer near the reindeer station at Teller wore recently found to contain $132,000 worth of gold and silver to the ton. The residents of Prince Rupert are anxious to procure a good water supply for the town, but many of them have gone on record as again?t tho licens ing of the liquor traffic. Judge Wickersham, known as "James tbe Terrible," formerly judge of the Tblrd judicial division in Alas ka, has aunouncod that he will be a I oandidate for the delegate job. Press dispatohes have it that the Canadian government has issued an order excluding American steamers from Canadian ports on tbe Pacific. That looks liko a game two can play. Bids were opened at Seattle for the wreck of the Saratoga, on Busby reef near Valdez, and it was found that a , Canadian company had offered $1,100 and an American competitor $1,250. No award. Four masked men held np Leon ( Scotia, a miuer, on the trail near White horse and relieved him of $450. When 1 the Northwest Mounted Police get in 1 action it will be all off with the four masked men. h The Daweon correspondent of the 1 Seattle P.-I. says: There have been over 800 arrivals here to date. Moat : of the arrivals are Slavonians and 1 Russians, who are in most instances unable to speak a word of English. ! There is a growing sentiment here against admitting these people. They < are coming principally from the Tread- ] well mines and are an ignorant class. - The authorities are already inveatigat- - ing means to prevent these foreigners ' from coming into Canadian territory. , It is feared, however, that the Amerl- ( can authorities will prevent their re- , turn. The Guggenheims muoh prefer f to employ English-spdaking laborers. , It is said that the clasB of laborers now coming in are too ignorant to understand instructions. One mur der was committed among themselves a few days ago* Mrs. John Allen Cameron, a pioneer! woman of Alaska, died at the Red Cross hospital, at Skagway, on June 21st. She was alone and entirely des- i tttnte of funds, and all efforts to lo- j cato her relatives by wire, failed. Hon. Theodore Roosevelt, E erl Grey governor poneral of Canada, and Sir t Wilfred Laurier, premier of Canada, are all to r?ceivo invitations from the i Arctic Brotherhood to come North next year and kill something hip. A Fairbanks man writes that there are four or five tbonsand sufferers in! theTananawho have no wives, and asks that this condition be made clear ? to the New England states, where there . if a preponderance of' unattaahed fe males. The body of David Bergmen, of ( Seattle, believed to have been mnrder- j ed by N.

I Mr. Shackelford ways it is only the' summer residents of Alaska who want gplf-governmsnt. Governor Hoggatt 8*ye it la the saloon element. Mr. Shackleford is a regular resident and : despite the fact that he pled ged him self in the platform of the party that j sent him to Chicago to represent it b? Is now outspoken against it. He pre sents an absurd suppositious case in print by way of ridiculing the proposi tion which he pledged himself to favor. It is this light regard for the pledged word of those seeking and holding positions of trust that is dishearten ing to those who are sincere in their labors for progress. ? Skagway Alas kan. The skull of a deer with hie horns fastened in the fore of an alder tree not more than six inche9 in diameter Bnd three feet from the ground, par tially covered with bark that had grown over it in the years since the unfortunate animal met its death, was ! found by C. F. Oldenburg in the for Bsts of Fidalgo island while out hunt- j Ing. From the position of the bare i akull and tho hornB it is presumed j that the deer was tryiog to scratch the back of its bead against the young tree when one of Its horns became j fastened under a limb. It is consider- ! ?d probable that the animal's neck was broken in its efforts to extricate Itself. Mr. Oldenburg estimates that the skull has been suspended from the tree where he found it for at least two pears.? Seattle Times. An entrance suoh as no other World's Fair ever had for Its gaiety boulevard has been planned for the Pay Streak at the Alaska-Yukon Paciflo exposition, which will be held ?t Seattle in 1909. Totem poles and a modern adaption of the arohiteotnral style of Ohina and Japan will consti tute the principal features of the en trance. E. F. Champney, of the ex position arobiteot's office, is the de signer. The Pay Streak is the name of the amusement avenue of the Paciflo World's Fair, corresponding to the Midway at Chicago, the Pike at St. Louie, the Trail at Portland and the Warpath at Jamestown. Its half mile of length will be lined with more than thirty clean flret class, new attractions many of which have been arranged for by Director of Concessions, A. W. Lewie. To the right of the main entrance to the exposition, the approach to the en trace of the Pay Streak will bogin. Thlfl approach will be in the form of exact reproductions of famous totem poles, the one in Pioneer Square, Seattle, haring a place of hon or. There will be a line of six on each aide of the avenue, each pole thirty feet apart. Between the poles will be stretched ropes of garlands, from which will be suspended Japanese laterne. The reproduction of the Alaskan native's family tree will be thirty feet high and highly ohromatio. At night the eyes and grinniug months will be illuminated by electric lights, which win produce an odd effect. The approach will lead up to the main portal of the Pay Streak. As the visitor passes along between the Totem poles bis eyes will meet the grand archway. This is an original design design by Champney. It will be a combination of different kinds of arch itecture. Eight tall totem pole col umns will support the archway, whloh will carry an ornamental screen with the official seal of the exposition in bright colors in the center. The pag oda roof will be what might be termed "Jap-Alaskan" in style of architecture, explains Champney who coined the word. The carved roof of the pagoda will be a happy medium between ths Japanese and Chinese styles of pagoda roofs. The main frieze over the arch way will be a swastika fret, the Alaskan good luck symbol. Between the outside columns of to tem poles will be a seated figure on a pedestal. On one side the figure will represent an Oriental idol, while on the other the figure will represent a native Alaskan god. Around the aroh* way will be laid out a typical Japan* ese garden, with dwarfed plants, wiat erin vines eto. The management of the exposition is much pleased with the design and thinks it will make one of the artistic hits of the fair. It is conceded by all experienced exposition men that no other world's fair ever had taoh an ornomental entrance to Its amusement boulevard. The Pay Streak will run from near the main entrance to Lake Union, which laps the exposition grounds on the west, where it will terminate in an ornate boat landing, from which the grand esplanade will extend over the water along tha lakeehore toward the east and Lake Washington, whlob borders the grounds on that side . On every trip the City of Seattle will bring to the Douglas Olty Market a lot of fresh vegetables and fruits, at the season advances. F. Wolland, the Juneau tailor, is re. ceiving shipments on almost every boat of the latest weaves for spring: and summer wear.
