S. soldier, fell in- * to the river nt Dawson and was drown- ' ed. j The A. B. Camp at Eagle has raised ; $350 for the A. B. building at the A.-V.- J P. exposition. Rex Beach and his partner Jack Leedy bave struck the payefreak in ; the Nome tundra. It is stated that the evesight of Rex Beach, the novelist, is impaired siuco his trip to Alaska. "Game Losers" is what the Juneau I Record calls the cannerymen who were pinched at Skagway. Governor Iloggatt's visit to Skagway was made the occasion of a public re ception in his honor. Judge Gunnison has sustained him self in the Dome Creek cases and re fusee to grant a new trial. The longshoremen at Seattle have gone on a strike and the blood of a fel low workingman has been *hed. It is expected that Cordova will be in touch with the great world through the medium of tho cable by August 15th. Nome has become the center of attraction to oongres9lonal delegatos. Corson, Wickersham and Konan all at once. Col. Weatherley, a prominent mining promoter of London, England, has been appointed British oonsal at Nome. Robert Dane, a magazine writer of note, is at Valdez preparing for a trip of exploration in the Mt. Wrangell dlstrlot. As Boon as the branoh of the White Pass railroad la completed lo the Whitehoree mines they will begin ship ping ore. Seattle preachers are nnited in an effort lo close the vaudeville shows on Sunday. The competition is getting to strong. Mary Flynn, stewardess on the Cot tage City, has suddenly become fam ous by getting herself lost in the woods near Sitka. Nome citizens point with pride to a recent shipment of 1,300 empty beer kegs from that port to the States which they olatm is proof that the oil* mate of the Northern city is too mild i for whiskey straight.

During the past winter the slides along the line of tho Alaska Central carried away portions of tho roadbed and track. The fisheries of Alaska alone return, and have tor many years, annually more than the tull purchase price paid for the territory. Tho Polly River country is said to bo remarkably rich and tho groand Is un frozen In most places. It seldom freezes to tho bottom. Tho gold products of Alaska for many years have been anuually from two to three times in value the origi nal cost price of Alaska. Floating ice has again blocked tho entrance to Muir glacier and excursion nteamors are now compelled to eubati tute the Foster as a show place. The trade of the United States with Alaska aggregates iu value aunually fully seven times tho original cost of the territory to the Uuited States. It now appears that thedenizr.is of the Capital City are in earnest in their efforts to get the go vemment to build a road from that city to Sheep Creek.* The report was brought to Seward by the S. S. Dora that Bering sea is full of Japanese sealers who are breaking the sealing agreement without hin drance. ! According to the Cordova Alaskan work on the railroad from Cordova is to be pushed direct into the Katalla coal fields, which, says the Alaskan, will be reached in ninety days. The wisdom of the Valdez people in building a dyke to protect the city Is now *hown when the glacier stream is transformed into a roaring torrent to oroas whioh it if neoessa ry to swim a horse. Judge Silas H. Re Id, of Oklahoma, who oooaples a place at the federal pie counter in the Third district of Alaska, took it upon himself to invita Presi dent Kooeerelt out to Alaska to shoot big game. Many people are woDdering if Pish Commissioner John N. Cobb will now rest on his oars after the terrible les? son he ? with the aid of the federal judge? has been able to give the vio lators of the law. Harlan Updegraff, commissioner of education, has returned to Juneau after a trip to the Westward. He will remain at the Capital City for about two months look ing into Alaska edu cational matters. Capt. Andrew Nelson, who onoe made the trip from Seattle to Kokiak in a forty-foot sohooner and who is credited with being the only man who ever got into a scrap with Alex Mo Lean, the "Sea Wolf/' and got away whole, is reported to be fatally wound ed as a result of a fight off O atalina islands.

JUNEAU ALASKA The only ] place ( on earth to Buy Men's Goods m Groceries. nam* OF The cannery men who were indicted by the last grand jury for riolation of t.ho law in regard to the taking ot iish on the Sabbath day, pleaded guilty, and were fined by Judge Gunnison, $150 on each count. An exchange suggests that there mast be sevoral person? at Cor dova who flbonld oe killed, as Ed. Ilascy has been sent for. Husey was | the m*n behind the gun in tho Key ? stone canyon affair. The license fees paid into the United | States treasury by the people of Alaska amounted to ?200,000 during the last fiscal year. Thin is one of the methods Uncle Sam has of encouraging enter j prises in the great North. M. E. Kuntz, who was nominated as i a candidate for delegate to congress i from Alaska by thu miners' associa tion of Rampart City is tbe only one of the bunch openly oppoted to a ter ritorial form of government. The Merritt party bonnd for Valdez creek is reported to be stuck 105 mil<?? up the Susitna, unable to make pro gress in either direction. The party encumbered by ten tons of freight, j t en horses and four women. I Some of the people at Valdez who : were engineering the campaign in the ; interest of Tom Gale are now wondor i ing where they will get thoir money back. As yet no one haa been able to throw any Light on the subject. Tbe city council of Nome did not take kindly to the offer of Andy Car uegie to place one of hie peraonal liber ality advertising libraries in that town^ They gave tha proposition a chilly re | ception, even for that northern oity. Col. W. A. Glassford, who vrben he was at the head of the govarnmaut | cable station and signal iervice at Seattle had tbe Alaska newspapers up in the air most of the time, has been placed in charge of the U. S. balloon station near O maha, Nebr. i After careful deliberation the Skag way grand jury declared that, the United States Marshal should have ai steamboat or other launch propelled by power at his command, but the administration organ at Juneau im mediately declared that there was no need for anything of the kind. Charles Sheldon, millionaire, olubi man, author, mighty hunter and a Yale man of '90, has just returned from a year's hunting expedition in Alaoka in the interest of science. For the last twelve months he has camped either at the base or above timber line on Mt. McKlnley, the highest mountain in the United States. j I TheoIHcial flower of the Seattle Seattle Seattle exposition has been chosen, and it is entirely appropriate. It is the cactus dahlia, and typically represents the expositio ncity ? beauti ful to look at, but no one can have anything to do with it without getting pricked by the thorns. The Alaska devil club is the only thing we could suggest that would be more appro priate ? more thorns and less flowers. 1 ? Cordova Alaskan. ! A Benttle paper nayc'that L.L. "Baee, ! the Alaskan guide, returned to that city by a recent boat, bringing the hide of a bear he hnd killed, a big fellow, 11 feet 6 inches lontf. He alno hud an assortment. of b?>ar clawa 5}? inches long, or a quarter of an Inch longer than Mr. Baloa ever flaw them before. That man Bales undei'Htauda tolling it. That t he Bnrtholf gold quartz claims located about forty mils* north of i Ku?k and tributary to the Sosltno will turn ont to be one of the riohost quartz properties in Alaska is the confident opinion of Fred McCoy, who with sev eral ae-sociates laat fall purchased the claims fronrthe Hartholf Brothern, the [locators. A stamp mill having a ca j pacity of ten tone a day in being taken ; to the mine. I The passengers cm the Steamship : Ohio, which was forty-oue days going i from Seattle to Nome, did many things to amuse themselves. After a few days in Bering Sea they established a daily newspaper, a corner grocery, an affin ity row, a kissing post, a Kogan'a alley and many other amusing institutions. As day after day passed amid the ice bergs the strain began to tell on them, and a number were ? frequently seen talking to themselves, and some took to writing poetry. These symtoma are regar ded in Alaska as the flrst indica tions of mental decay. James L. Farmer, of Nashville, Tenn., appointed by the government to colla borate with Gov. Hoggatt, of Alaska, in collecting on Alaska exhibit for the Alaska - Yukon - Pacific exposition, reached Seattle last night on his way to Juneau. Mr. Farmer baa in mind an Alaska exhibit which, ho thinks, will truly represent the country as it is to day. "We will leave the Eskimos and Indians at home," said he last night at the Rainier-Uraud. "What we want to show is that Alaska is a country where white men can live aud our exhibit will be collected with this idea in mind. The resources of the country will be as well represented as possible and we expect to demonstrate that Alaska is not only a country of gold bat a country where the necessary cereals and garden products can be raised. I will be In Juneau nutil De cember, making the capital my head quarters. I will collaborate with Gov. Hoggatt, wbo trill no donbt send out many agents through the great district to collect the exhibits. We have been assured of hearty co-operation on the part of Alaskans in preparing a show ing whloh will truly represent the country. Of coarse the mining ex hibit will be the principal item. We will endeavor to get a comprehensive collection of minerals and edaoational showing of how they are obtained. The work of the government's experimental stations oondaoted by the department of agrioaltare will be well represented and I think some of the samples from these stations will open the eyes of Eastern visitors to the exposition." Mr. Farmer will leave for Jnneaa Saturday. Today be intends to visit the exposition gronnds and to see of* fioiale of the fair. He has spent stven years in exposition work, beginning with the Nashville expoeltlon.--P.-I.
