Park, of Klondike Hill, writes to the Dawson News a brief, yet eloqaent, tribute to j the Yukon miner's greatest frieud and i fellow'pioneer. Mr. Park did not ask j to have bis uame given in connection with the little eulogy, but it is so ' touching and no doubt will so appeal j to Ynkoners everywhere, who have ] fought the grim battle on the trail with their faithful doge, that the story is j here given with full credit: "Poor, faithful Jack is dead. Though i old and full of years, bis master is sad j and grieved tbat be is gone. No more j will his voice be beard along the sluice j box lines in the deep, dark cuts, to give j notice that be was on guard while his master slept. No louger will his voice be heard on the bill and in the Klon dike vale, to give warning to the snow shoer that he was hot on his trail. No more will he be watchful and vigilant lest some barm befall his master. u 'If a man die, he shall live again T " If a man's dog die, .shall be live again? Who shall say? Faithful Jack, ere the sear and yellow leaf of age had over taken him, made many a long trip over the Northland's winter trails. He was a pioneer dog, having been brought to the Klondike from the States in the early days. He had helped to the best of his dog ability in the development of this golden Northland, and now his work is done and he sleeps peacefully under the snow. When the springtime comes we shall bury him on a little knoll overlooking hie favorite bunting ground and inscribe on his tombstone: "Here Lies Faithful Jack, a Pioneer of the Klondike." ? Dawson News. The White Pass & Yukon Railway company, which has 81,000,000 worth of Canadian steamers lying in its bone yard on the Yukon, relics of the Klon dike days, but well preserved in the dry climate of the Yukon basin, has awarded a contract to Nilsen & Kelez, of Seattle, for the construction of two Yukon river steamboats to ply between the Canadian Yukon and the American Yukon. American boats are permitted to operate between Fairbanks and Dawson, which is a Canadian subport. The United States . has refused to make Fairbanks a subport, and Canadian steamers ply only betweeu Dawson and Whitehort<e. The new steamerdfcwhich will be knocked down and shipped to Skagway by steamer as freight, will be hauled by rail from Skagway to White horse and there put. together. As American vessels they can navigate the water of both countries. A rate war between the White Pass company and the Northern Navigation company on both passengers and freight is expected to begin as soon as the great river opens. The White Pass <fc Yukon Rail way company is a West Vijginia corpo ration. Contradictions "The more the merrier." Not so. One hand is enough in a purse. "Nothing hurts the stomach more than surfeit ing" Yes, lack of meat. "Nothing but what has an end." Not so. A ring has none, for it is round. "Money is a great comfort.* Not when it brings a thief to the gallows. "The world is a Jong journey.** Not sa. The sun goes over it every day. "It is a great way to the bottom of the sea." Not so.

F, Kennedy, President y ^ A ? A. Gabbs, Cashier j* A special writer in the Boston Post sayci that he has just had a talk witb Miss Charlotte W. Havves, the poet and composer of songs of peace and patriot ism, who was the friend of EmeraoDt Luck Larcom and other great literary light. Miss Hawes has jast Composed words and masic of a soug which may be destined to become the state song of Alaska, as she has also been the composer of the state songs of several other commo wealths. Capt. E. p. Bertholf, commanding the United States revenue service, in hie annual report sent to congress, recom-? mends the construction of a vessel to replace the Perry, wbiob was lost in the Bering sea during the summer of 1910, and appropriations for three ves-' sols to replace the Woodbury, Manhat' tan and Winona, all old nud unserVice-' able. He sayH that tbe wireless appar atus now on all sea going revenue cutters should be replaced by the most modern mechanism obtainable and a constaut radio watcb should be main" tained. The curreot appropriation her points out, permits only two wireless operators on each cutter and three are necessary for continuous service. Ves sels, cargoes and derelicts saved by the revenue cutter service during the year were valued at 810,711,748. Fifty- five I derelicts and other dangerous obetruc 1 tions to navigation were removed or de ; stroyed. "For every dollar tbe gov | eminent- invested in the maintenance 'of the revenue cutter service," saye Capt. Bertholf, "there has been a return ; of $4.36 in the form of property saved from the sea, arid this in addition to lives saved aud other beneficial acts j performed in the interests of mankind." i I ! After twelve years of ceaseless effort, two Alaska coal claims bare at length i been patented. We bope this is the tbin edge of the wedge, and from now on other claims will be allowed and the situation relieved, says the Pacific Mining Journal. The claims now , opened to use will be of little benefit in relieving the coal famine, as they are both small ones, and produce lignite. One is a 50-acre claim near Homer on | Kenai peninsula. There is abundance of coal, such as it is, but the gra le is poor. A number of years ago the j Southern Pacific railway experimented with this product, but found it uu available for their use as it coutaiued particles of fossil rosin that were un consumed in the locomotive fire boxes and were sent out from the stacks and j set fire to the forests. The other claim i now patented is lignite also, not a thick vein, consists of 127 acres and is in the | east side of Admiralty island. It is not likely that this property either will produce a coal that will be commer cially available on any considerable ; scale. We do uot wish to be hasty, but ! it looks as though the letter of our de mands had been complied with in a very small way and the substance of | them denied. We have asked for bread . and they have given us a stone. 60 YEARS' EXPERIENCE Trade Marks Designs , r - - ? Copyrights Ac.
