Strange isn't it, how the Pacific Coal j
?fc Oil company can 9pend 612,000 to
$15,000 each year in doing assessment
work on score of oil claims, and at the
same time maintaining that there is uo
oil here. This also despite the fact
that last yer?r one well at the head of
Katalla slough produced as much as
ninety barrels a day, which was used i
by the Katalla company for fuel pur
poses. One of these days there will be ;
something doing in more ways than one
in the oil and oil lands of this section.

Mr. and Mrs. John Gordon, who have
spent the last two years in the interior,
In the neighborhood of Nation, return
ed to Douglas on the Cottage City.
They left Nation early in th?* Summer
and proceeded down the -Yukon iu a
small boat as farad Holy Cross Mission,
where the mosquitoes got so bad that
they were compelled to take refuge on
one of the river steamers. They are
both in splendid health and praise the
healthfulness of the interior country.
Mr. Gordon says that the reports of the
wonderful agricultural possibilities of
that couutry are not exaggerated, and
that the vegetables raised there are
truly excellent. He also praises the
climate. While so much has been said
about the winters and the intense cold,
he says that he likes that season the
beat. Speaking of the beneficial effects
of the climate, he paid there are a num
ber of men there who, although ad
vanced in years, are still seekiug for
gold with all the energy and vim of
youth. Coming down on the boat from
St. Michael to Seattle was a mau 74
years of age, who had beeu prospecting t
in theTanaua. Mr. Gordon suggested
that he was probably ready to give up
the struggle. But the man said no; as
soon as be could buy a horse and an
outfit of grub he intended to go to
Valdez and take the trail and prospect
the couutry thoroughly from there iu.
Mr and Mrs. Gordon have come to
make their home here in Douglas.

Samuel G. Lucas.
Died, at Juneau, Alaska, Friday, Sep
tember 18, 3908, Samuel G. Lucas, aged
4G years.
Samuel G. Lucas was bom in the j
state of Kansas, and came to Alaska
about 12 years ago, locating at Haines
where he made his home until the time
of bis death. For the past ten years
he has been associated with Mr. Honry
Krie, of this city, in business enter
prises at Porcupine, Haines and Doug
las. He was a member of the Arctic
Brotherhood at Haines, and was well
kuown throughout Southeastern Alas
ka as one of the foremost business men
of the district.
He leaves a wife, to whom he was
united about four years ago and who
was with him at the time of his death,
*ud three cnildren by a former mar
riage to mourn his loss. His father and j
mother, Mr. and Mrs. David Lucas, are
living at Pasadena, California.
Mr. Lucas was seriously ill some 1
three years ago with inflammation of
the bowels, and it was then thought |
that he would never recover. Since
that time he has beeu a coutiuual suf
ferer uud finally last week he decided
to undergo au operation for appendi- :
citis. The operation was performed by
Dr. Simpaou and it was at first thought
that it would be entirely successful, as
the patient appeared to rally in good
shape. However, a change came for
the worse, and his heart refused to re- J
spond to the strong stimulants, and he
passed away after a brief struggle.
Funeral services were held at the
Presbyterian church at Juneau on
Monday, Rev. L. P. Jones officiating.
