Should h? decide to filter the race for delegate 1.9 must lay aside the; judicial ermine,, and Alaska will lose; an hauest judge. His chances- of elec tion would be slim. The republican party* in Alaska is. in a bad way. For rears it has bean rant and torn with dissensious. In no part of.the terri? tory is it well oruanized. li Mr. Wick er^!. am is again a caudidate, he will re ceive the support of many republicans. ( We doubt if thoss who urge Tom j Lyons to become a candidate are his best friend.*. Tom is too good u man !o be sacriSed. The Wrangell Sentinel just at baud aontains a big scars head and an ac aompauying article heralding to the worid the news of a ?reat placer strike on the headwaters of the Taku,. stating that men theraare taking out from S20 to $40 per day. The recent arrivals in Douglas fiom the Taku country and letters received from Douglasitos now there iudicate that no s>uch discovery has bet-n made.

"-Wj e recommeud. that appropriate legislation be eu acted by congress- regulating the- herring fisheries of AIaski:>aud. that the mauu: facture cf oil from herring and other j food C9hes should be prohibited, ex? sept as to the refuse. It has been shown to this grand jury by r&liabla evidence that the wholesale taking, of herring in the waters of Alaska as is now done for the manufacture of. fer tilizers and oil, has so depleted the nat ural supply of. fish which, are the natural food of the king, and: other varieties of salmon,. the cod,. the hali but and other large and valuable fish ?hat serious injury to the supply of the | latter has resulted,, and the continuance af such practices will in time atfect tbeir total destruction as well as de stroy the supply of herring for food;, and the building up of industries of ^reat benefit to Alaska and her iubab- j itants. We especially call attention to tire public policy adopted- by the neigh boring province of British Columbia whore the herring industry has been so regulated as to result in great public !
