Gone on Before. A few days ago the press dispatches annouueed that Gov. Walter E. Clark, of Alaska, bad go ue down to Portland, Ore., to visit the institution which has the con tr act for the care of the Alaska ! insane. Certain reports have circa lated and, no doubt, ere this have reached official ears, that ?ome of the practices engaged in at this institu tion are of the mo-t inhuman kind. ? Calculated to plunge the poor in- f , mates into still deeper darkness , rather than to effect a healing of tbeir , malady. , The lonesome darkness of the North,, the excitement of the stampede, the cold, the icy trail, the privations of the pioneer, all combine to unseat the mind, and many each year complete a ' a life of energy by losing their hold ' upon their mental lever. A> a Dawson 1 nigger on his way South once said: ' "This heai all night climate aud home made 'hootch' makes 'em crazy; I feels kinder queer sometimes myself aud l's guinter git oaten hear 'for it strikes ' me." Alaskan?- will unite in the hope that the investigation will be most thorough, and should it reveal a single ground Tor the charges made, that justice will be measured out to the guilty ones, sure aud swift. The insane of Alaska are cared for at ' Mount Tabor, Portland, Ore., under a 1 contract made April 28. 1909, at the 1 rate of $330 per auuum per capita. In bis annual jeport for 1910, Governor Clark say* that, in his opiuion, this ar raugeuicut is much more satisfactory | than the p!a:i proposed of construct iug au a?ylum in Alaska for the care of insane, aud their treatment is much j more likely to be successful in a cli ^ mate milder in wiuter than the interior ] of Alaska, and less cloudy and rainy than the Alaska coast. The people of Alaska may perhaps , be called rough, tut it is very seldom t hat they allow those who are unfortu , nate or afflicted to suffer for the want , of such help as money can give them. Every cump has its little charities of ( this kiud constantly under way. The incorporated towns also do their part. During the pa- 1 year tht? town of Doug las spent more thau a thousand dollars j for the help of iudigeat persous. This , may not seem much to cities like Seattle and Tacoma, but it is no small , part of the revenues of a. town like ( Douglas. ( Tb* oo)y case in which the Federal ; government helps bear the burdens of A las isa, outs id 3 of the punishment of , crime, is in the care of the insaue, and we cau expect no less than that our governor shall see that this is done carefully and well; aud that the poor unfortunates who are taken to Mount Tabor shall not be mistreated. The two show compauies that went down t he Yukon as far as Fairbanks, are back in Southeastern Alaska on their way to tb9 States. The May i Roberts company is showing in .Juneau this week, and promise to hit Douglas about Sunday night. *fhe Sherman Cleveland Musical Comedy Co.,. with the dancing girls, is at Skagway this week for three nights. Albin Baritello, Mark Smith, James Daniels, John Richards, Dan Popovich and Otto Wilde, who have beeu hunt ing at Pybus bay for the past two weeks, returned last evening. They | encountered some rough weather that ?aade traveling risky even in so safe aj boat as the City of Rome. However, they found ducks and geese plentiful, and with now and then a bit of veui son they lived high. Oar old townsman, Andy Johnson, | has decided to stay with us. He has bought back from Mr. L. S. Ferris a half interest in the Douglas Steam Laundry and will remain a9 manager of the institution. The boys will make extensive improvements to the build ing and machinery, until the plant is 1 second to none in Alaska. Mr. E. JL. I Mahoney, an expert laundryman, will: be foreman in the mechauical depart- ^ ~3Bgra. TREADWELL TOPICS There will be a dauce at the Club to- ' night, to which all are invited. There will soon be a billiard and pool tournament start at the Club for Club members. Mouday ni?ht was the first pay day to come under the new system. The next pay day will not be till November IGtb. Assistant Superintendent Kennedy's house is being raised about four feet and several other alterations are being made to it. Owing to so many officers of the fire department being out of town the fire meeting to have been held ou Wednes day night was postponed until October 2oth. The large bed plates for the new 700 ? hoist have been taken np the bill into the concrete house prepared for them and the balance of the machinery will soon follow and be also placed in posi tion. 4 At a- band meeting held last week Roy Norliu was elected vice president, in place of W. Casey, resigned, and John Gillam elected secretary in place of Charles Swibart, resigned. Several matters of importance were disposed of. : l E. A. Mcllamilton, who had the mis- 1 i fortuue some time ago to have his eyes injured, returned on Saturday from Seattle whore he has been uuder the < :are o! an eye specialist, lie reports j J that, he is improving very rapidly and ; evil 1 soon be abie to return to work. The oil steamer Lansing arrived at j j IVeadwell on Friday afternoon with ajj 3argo of 42,000 barrels of crude oil. ( Phis is the first steamer of the United Oil company to make this port, as the bou tract of the Tread well company , with the Associated Oil compauy has j expired and a uew contract made with j the United company. Tho boat is 395 feet long and is ten feet longer than | the Porter. She formerly was an army J trausport. She will arrive back in this ] port in about twelve days with auother j cargo. The show at the Club on Saturday I iight was largely attended desp ite the ? Sad weather. The uiauager was disap pointed at the last minute by the nou- j ir rival of three people who were to ; aelp make fun for the eveniug, and he >vas forced to go ou hinrn-lf aud give a monologue, which convulsed the au , iience with laughter. The illustrated >ong was sung by Max Pitzmau, and was received with much applause. The pictures were about the best ever shown iu the Club. Tho coucert this week will consist of four pieces by the band, an illustrated song aud three reels of pictures* i The swimming races at the Club on Monday uight were very good. The first race was between Bell and Thomas ind was veYy exciting, being won by Bell by about six \ inches. The second >peed race was won by J. Gillam. The ; egg aud spoon race by Jack Wilson (of checker fame),, tho fancy diving by Stephens, Lindsay and Jacobson was i loudly applauded. The tub race was a disappointment, as the tubs were too' small. The affair wound up with a polo match between teams captained by Thomas and Wilson. Whilo neither j team scored a goal still there were! some very close calls on goal, and the matoh was declared a draw. The game will soon become very popular uud, no doubt, the ladies will soon be taking it up as a pastime on Friday , nights. There will be the usual services at tho Congregational church next Suu- ! day. Sunday school at 1:30 Mr. Harvey Tiugley will act as superintendent, Mr. Wm. DeLong, secretary and treasurer. In the evening Mr. H. G. Nevill will conduct a service at 8 o'clock. Future arrangements will be announced at this time. The Ladies' League meets Thursday afternoon at 2:30. Choir re hearsal at 7:30. More Hair. There are very few of us in fact, but what want more hair, and uo one cause Jesuits iu greater loss of hair than does dandruff. Dandruff is an infla mation of the sweat glands in the scalp and unless it is cured, will event ually cause total Joss of the hair. There is no hair tonic made that will prevent this loss until the dandruff is cured. NyaPs Iiir&htKone is u prepara tion that will cure the dandruff and will keep the scalp in a healthy condi tion.
