CHAJKLKS A. HOPP Editor and Proprietor. 'PHONE NO. 12. $8.00 1 JM> - " 10 Abraham Lincoln was born in Har din (uow La Kne) county, Kentucky,) on February 12, 1800. He served as presideut of the United States from , March -1, 1801, to Aprii 15,1865, the date of his death. Among the heroes of the world was there ever one so great aud so uutrammeled with ostentation as Abraham Lincolu? The rebellion had j been crushed by force of arms, under his guidauce through all its tortures, too intricate for ordinary minds to fathom. A wave of exultation was roll- ; ing over the country, and at the height of its tide, ou t he 14th day of April, IStfo, Mr. Lincoln was shot at Ford's theatre in Washington, by John Wilkes Booth. Andrew Johnsou, the vice president, succeeded to the presidency. The weather for the past week has I beeu cold with uow and then a taste of Taku wind, which makes it colder. The water-wagou and the bucket brigade 1 are busy every day. It has beeu brought to our attention that some people are using water from the creek that ruus through town. If the water is taken any where below Fourth street there is a chance that it is contamiL ated by the foul contents of sewers. . The Use of such water is exceedingly dangerous. The supply is just as plen tiful further up the creek. That Jaueau editor who was called up before the court will now coutiue j his attention to the news eud of the business and let the attorneys who are hired for that purpose prosecute the criminals. What have those people who com- ; plain of a lack of sunshine in Douglas to say now? Beautiful sunshine! I A Visit to Lincoln on His Last Day U1 got to the White House before 9, o'clock, not with the expectation of see- J iDg Mr. Liucolu so early, but with the hope that I might get a place at the head ot the line and be the first to see him. To my surprise 1 was told that he would see me at once. "1 found him alone. As 1 ontered he got up quickly and strode across the room towards me, saying as he came, niello, Crasswell! The war is over!' He grasped my hand with the enthusi asm of a schoolboy aud repeated the exclamation, The war is over!' adding, 'Look at that telegram from Sherman.' The message assured the president of the culmination in the Carolinas. In deed, it was glorious news. Many times, with a spirit that was delightful to see, Mr. Lincoln exclaimed, 'The war is over!' Then he would stop, grow serious, and add: 'But it has been an awful war, Crasswell, it has been an awful war, but it's over.' "When he could leave the theme that was first in his mind and heart, he ex claimed: 'But what are you after. You fellows don't come to see me unless you want something. It must be some- 1 thing big, or you wouldn't be so early.' I told him my errand and handed him my affidavit. He said: 'That's not hard. You did right to put it in writing. I know you know how to make affidavits.1 "Then," said General Crasswell," he took my affidavit and wrote a brief word upon it, something like, 4Do this. A. L.,' and gave it to me. I carried it over to the war office and after the usual fuss got the order issued. Then 1 went out into Maryland to attend to j some business through the day, and got back into the city late at night to find everything in uproar over the as sassination." ? A. S. Draper, L. L. D., in Harper's Weekly. Proclamation Friday, February 12th, being the an niversary of Lincoln's birthday, 1 earnestly request every business house in Douglas to suspend business for I that day, that we may pay fitting tribute to the memory of the Great Kmancipator. M.J. O'Connor, Mayor. School Notes i The first semester, consisting of 18 weeks, euded on January 5th. The at tendance up to the time of the extreme cold was the best the school has on ' record. The school spirit and harmony have been unusually good throughout I the year. The iudustry of the pupils, with but j few exceptions, has been excellent while in the schoolrooms, but there is not time during school hours for full preparation of work in the higher : grades and many do uot realize the ; necessity for home study during their . most important school ago. Parents might help greatly by encouraging i study at home. Simply on account of this lack of home work, some have been unable to keep up their required work and will, consequently, be at the disad vantage of carrying extra work at some future time. Those at the head of their respective grades during the first half year are: Agnes Museth, 11th grade; Rose Pen glase, 10th grade; llmi Aalto,9th grade; Charles Wortman, 8th grade; Regiue Miller and Elanora Lundquist, 7th grade; Walter Peltou, Gth grade; Lempe Burauen, Gth grade; Colville Galwas, 4th grade; Anna Anderson, 3d grade; Ida Petersou and Lois Price, 2nd grade. Adele J. Pickel, Prin. The federal court of appeals at San Francisco has hauded down a decision in the case of the United States vs. Yuko Perovich, affirming the decision of the lower court, which said that he must hang for murder. In the winter of 1904 5 a fisherman named Jaconi lived in a tent thiee miles below Fair banks, where he had made his catch of the previous season. Vuko Perovich, a native of Monteuegro, had fallen iuto disrepute with a number of Austrians with whom be associated, lie was ac cused of several i heft?, ami, becoming alarmed at the threats expressed, Pero vich started to Chena. He was wel comed by Jaconi, where he was known to have been the day the latter's tent was found in flames. Later Jaconi's body was found, and the cha/ red re mains clearly showed that he bad met death by foul play. Perovich was sus pected and a search made tor him. He had gone down the Tanaua river about 33 miles and asked for shelter at a wood camp. His anxiety to purchase a rifle caused suspicion, and the marshal was warned. At the trial the evidence was convincing, aud Perovich was found guilty. Wlieu arrested, Perovich ?*as 1 wearing a suit of Jacoui's clothes and also had with him nuggets, the knife and several other articles he was kuown to possess Wheu Hendricksou, the famous "blue parka"' man, aud Thoru tou broke jail the first time Perovich went with them. He was recaptured within a few hours. Wheu Heudrick sou and Thornton made their second break Perovich refused to join them. He is about 40 years of age and single. ! The legal skill of his attorneys is the j cause of his execution being postponed three times. Advertised Letters List of letters remaining unclaimed iu the po9toffii;e at Douglas, Alaska, on Feb.
