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.

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

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. For sale onlykat Smith's Drug
Store:, 50c. and ?1.00..
