The report that sixteen men and four teen horses were drowned iu the Cbit iua river on the way to the Shashauua, seems to lack confirmation. The forests service has been having a ; real serious time with flies on Keuai peninsula. The assistance of campers aud loggers has been asked. The uame of Mis.

The conflicting reports received here are such that, considering the ex pense of the trip, and the hardships of j poling up the river or crosfciug the country, the outlook is not promising. Washington. ? Indications here point to the nomination of William E. Wood , of Cordova for United States marshal for the Third division of Alaska. Wood is understood to be the favorite of At torney General McHeynolds. His na tive state is North Carolina and he has the strong support of Secretary of the .Navy Josepbus Daniels.

DOUGLAS, ALASKA "The drought of the past few months has worked great havoc on the mining industry uear Nome t his gammer, " said K. L. Robinson, a well known mining man of that city, to a Seattle reporter. "There were nearly 3,000 men idle iu Nome when I left there early this month. Old timers predict a hard win ter, because, I hey fear the rain, \vheu it arrives, will be accompanied by a se vere cold that will make mining impos ?ible." "If the United States government can afford to speud four huudred mil lion dollars diggiug a cauul across Pan arna, it Hurely can afford to speud forty millions iu Alaska. I'm iu favor of gov ernment. owued railroads in Alaska, and am urging and shall continue to urge a complete system of opening the coal aud also the agricultural land;'. 1 have faith that my sou will live to see Alaska with a population of from six to ten millions of people. "?Secretary of the Interior F. R. Lnne. E. J. White, United States Consul at YVliitehorae, U. T., is authority for the 1 followiug information: Collector of | Customs McCleunan has received the followiug instructions from Ottawa: 'American goods iu trausit to Sbushan ua will be corded and sealed at White horse by Cauadiau customs officials aud allowed to go forward without owuer making deposit. Supervision to iusure return of goods to American territory al expense Canadian govern- 1 meut. Horse* aud vehicles including goods to go through in the nnme man ner. Provisions aud horse feed Used while passing through Yukon territory, must pay duty.' It will be unfortunate for Seward if the government should figure out a more accessible way of reaching the Matauuskagold fields. The people of that town have demonstrated bo much pluck iu placing their faith iu the fu ture importance of their delightful little city that they deserve to see a growth, rapid aud substantial. Audi they surely will have it if ths govern ment aocepts Seward as the terminus of a railroad to the Matauuska coal fields aud Kuskokwim gold country.: They have one of the prettiest town sites in Alaska and a substantially built little oity, populated by enterprising and hopeful people. ? Ex. Soon some of the disappoiuted stam peders may be expected to returu aud knock the couutry. Many wtfo came from other sections aud started from McCarthy's over the trail had scarcely sufficient food to get them to the new gold diggings, lu some iustauoes they will be compelled to returu after a day or two there, uot having had suiiicieut time to even look over the ground. Others have returned when only par tially in, while agaiu some oame only as far as Cordova, wisely realizing that they did not have the means to pur chase the food necessary to remain in the interior aud do any locating and prospecting. Naturally some of the men referred to will knock the couutry in order to explain their failure to make good. It has been this way ever since gold stampedes have been beard of and likely will continue. ? Chitiua ?Leader. Textile Chemistry, or the dealing with the composition of commercial fabrics and the chemical teats dealing with the identification of and detection of fakes is taught in the department of chemis try at. the University ot Washington. The studeuts make minute study of many of the well-known sophistications in commercial fabrics. Fairbanks. ? Before leaviug here for Nome, CoVi Strong succeeded in hav ing the two factious of the democratic party bury the hatchet and they all promised the governor to work in bar mony for the election of a democratic delegate to congress. The Enwin fac tion and the Uarrais faction have joined hands and hereafter all differences are to be forgotten. The governor is to recognize both sides in his appoint ments aud Erwin is to do likewise, thus insuring a large number of officehold ers of both sides to work in harmony next election. Although his plans did not material ize this year, P. W. Wood, of Seattle, is making preparations to establish a cannery oil the south fork of the Yukon river, about 40 miles from its mouth. He had organized the Yukon Packing Co., capitalized at $250, 000. George Seward, th<* Chicago bauker, who was one of the defendants iu the Frost Alaska coal trials aud other Cbicagoaus were interested iu the company. As they have been superseded by Wiscou sin capitalist , the company will be re organized uuder the name of the Yukon Packers' Association, which will be cap italized at $50,000. The incorporation will piobably be completed this mouth. The Indian* at Kititlek near Ella mar on Prince William Sound, Alaska, this season are putting up salmon bel lies. This past spring they told the government officials they wanted to engage in the fishing but had no money for equipment. As the government can not assist iu furthering private enter prises, W. T. Lopp of the Bureau of Education interested J. E. Fields, the Seattle salt salmon broker in the mat ter. Mr. Shields sent 100 barrels and other supplies to the natives who are working under the direction of C. W. Cook, the government teacher at the Tatitlek native sohool. After salting the bellies the natives are smoking fish for their own use. A considerable exteupion of the ac tivities of the Alaska Fisheries Service of the United States Bureau of Fisher* ies is contemplated in the estimate of appropriations for the fiscal year 1914. lu a communication to the secretary of the treasury, later submitted to the speaker of the house of representatives, Secretary William 0. Redfield asks for the appropriation of an additional sum of $108,500 to provide for a sea going vessel, a tug and six fast motorboats, and the increase of the staff by five as sistant agents. This is the greatest ex pansion of the Alaska Fisheries Service since its establishment. The sum of $100, 000 is expected to provide for the construction of a vessel suitable for making trips to points anywhere be tween Seattle and Unalaska, a light draft tug for use in the Bristol bay region, three launches for Central Alas* Jka and three-ior Southeastern Alaska. Placer claims on Kenai river, from Lake Kenai to Lake Skilak, have been taken under option by parties seeking dredger ground and drills will be placed in operation as soon as possible, to determine the gold contents, if the values prove satisfactory to the pros pective purchasers, the biggest deal ever pulled off on the Kenai peninsula will result. ? Sewurd Gateway. How would you like to see the Kenai peninsula, or the greater part of it, thrown into a game preserve, in which the animal life therein would be im # muue from slaughter the entire year round, with penal servitude facing a violation of the regulation oreating it, asks the Seward Gateway. We are near er on the verge of such a oousumma* tion than most people hereabouts real ize, and it is up to the men in the hills or largely so, whether or not it shall i come to pass. Those who have the pow i er to make such a regulation are not unaware that the Keuai peninsula is the great game couutry of Alaska, i They are also fully alive to the faot that there has been a wanton destru<> tion of this wild game. They know as well as we who live on the ground that the game law is a dead letter to numer* oris persons who gain a livelihood by trapping or hunting for the market; that these persons have a wholesome contempt for the wardens of game and miss no opportunity to harass and hin . der their work of preservation. Maj. J. F. A. Strong, governor of Alaska, is paying an official visit tc Nome, says Scott C. B;)oe iu th?* Seattle ! P.-L Tbe enthusiastic greeting gives him is at once understood and appreci ated at this range by those fortunate Seattleites included in t ie Chamber of Commerce party which recently toured tbe territory. Their memory of Nome is a very pleasant one, indeed. At nc stopping place on the 8,000-mile jour ney was whole-souled hospitality more marked, the cordiality of the welcome more prouounced, or the twenty four hours' entertainment more delightful Rome's latchstring was out from the moment the much bewildered visitors, ; landing via the spectacular aerial train, reached the wharf, where half the pop ulation, at least, had assembled. Com mittees of ladies and geutlenen ex tended hearty greetings to the stran~ gers, individually and collectively. Then a procession was formed, headed by Seth Maun, which marched doable flle through the streets, to the stirring masic of a brass band, to tbe principal hotel. Two hours later a big reception and ball was held at Eagle hall, where felicitous speeches were made. Nome's welcome waB emphasized by the pres entation of a pretty nugget pin to eaoh lady of the party as a souvenir of the visit. The Log Cabin Club kept open house for the men. Next day Eskimo oanoe races and Eskimo dances were provided for the entertainment of the visitors, and the all too fleeting hoare were otherwise most pleasantly spent iu becoming better acquainted with tbe far-away city and its hospitable people. No city on the American continent ie more interesting than Koine. Oat of the beaten path, it is distinctive in -ite life and makeup and deoidedjy towd! and otw.
