Of all the people iu the world, the newspaper men and the printers should be endowed with enough brains to stand together. But it is not so. The quarrels of the fraternity have fur nished fuu for the whole country. Now comes the Skagway Interloper and , pokes fuu at Mr. Keller, proprietor of ; the Skagway Daily Alaskau, because he asi'ires to the U. S. marshalsbip of j this district. Mr. Keller may not have any gi>o>l chauce of t ho appointment, but b?- rau feel certain of oue thing ? au yttacK i?t > evidently iii-pired by jealousy as that made ou him by the the Inter loper will not. hurt him iu the eyes of the intelligent people of Alaska, and we don't suppose that he cares very much for the rest of them. A correspondent asks what are the eight points of the law. They are these: First, a good cau?e; secoud, a good purse; third, an houest, skillful lawyer; fourth, good evidence; fifth, able counsel; sixth, an upright, judge; seveuth, an intelligent jury; eighth, goodj luck. If you have all these in your favor you have a sportiug chance or winning your case. The school children will debate the question of territorial government at Natatorium hall this Friday evening. The men folks of Douglas should make it a point to attend, because they may learu something. Territorial govern ment is a subject that should interest every citizen of Alaska. "Out of the mouths of babes " The Juneau Daily Dispatchsays rhHt representatives of capitalists who rep- : resent milliods of dollars are expected to arrive in this city betweeu uow aud the first of April. Their mission here will be for the purpose of acquiring mining property for which they have been negotiating for the past year. Joe Diggs, a former Juueauite, has been made post master at Cordova. The Juueau Record asserts that there were several applicants for the place. But Mr. Diggs won out, in spite of the fact that he was endorsed by Natioual Com mitteeman Shackleford aud Governor Hoggatt. The Methodist Leaguer, published monthly for the last year at Juneau, died this mouth. The main reason for its demise is, probably, that the editor in-chief contemplates matrimony, aud, after that event he anticipates that he will be too busy to edit a monthly paper. Juneau children have a streak of curiosity. Last week one of them drank a bottle of cologne, and this week another swallowed a safety pin. ( . The News has no desire to enter iuto ! I a controversy as to the mechanical ability of anybody, but "facts is facts" nevertheless. As a popular pastime, draw poker is fast asurpiug the place held by the staid and sober game of solo. The report reaches us that the Ju neau Transcript is about to blossom out into a daily. The average dog is a sample of how faithful a nuisance can be. When a man marries he halves his rights and doubles his duties. Juneau fans are agitating the ques tion of baseball.
