DOUGLAS, ALASKA The Juneau Dispatch recently print- \ ed a picture of Representative Charles Jouea, of Nome, along with the very remarkable statement in bold, black faced type, that he is not insane. The Gen. William L. Distin loving cup committee has sent out circular letters asking for contributions to the fund. The committee consists of D. B. Stewart, B. D. Blakesleo and R. G. Waylaud. J. G. Quinlan, who recently resigned as a conductor ou the White Pass rail way, says that road has an unusual reo ord. Not a passengsr has been injured since the traoks were laid and no em ploye has beeu seriously hart. The government road over the sum mit from Valdez has been staked from Wortman's to Ptarmigan Drop to pre vent many from being lost who may travel duriug the storms which some times prevail in that high altitude. A deal was closed yesterday whereby Angus McKinzie and Harry Webber bought out the interests of George Gervis in the Puyallup gold property near Hollis. The property while not a big mine is a promising little one, and under the management of such men as Webber and McKinzie will give a good account of itself. A five stamp mill and concentrating plant goes with the property. New pipe has lately been installed to the water power plant which furnishes power for the mill aud everything is ready to turn over aud get to work. ? Ketchikan Miner. Mrs. Rose Johnson of Valdez ihas spent $5000 installing a mill which is now' completed and with the water power near the property harueased, will in a few weeks be at work gcindiug the high grade ore taken out during the summer on ber property near the Val dez glacier says the Prospector. Mrs. Johnson has worked without attracting much attention and few people knew of the property beiug opened and of tbe erection of the mill. She has taken up the greatest part of the machinery herself with the aid of a team of big trail dogs and has had a crew of from two to eight meu on the claims for the past many months. Another Alaskan railroad to or en the natural resources of tbe territory is proposed in the bill Chairman Hous ton* of tbe territories committee, re ported favorably to the house. The road, to be built by tbe government, and either leased or operated by tbe government, would run from tbe southern coast, at Cordova or Seward or vicinty, to the Upper Yukon river, and would not be more than 722 miles k>og. Chairman Houston in his report points out that such a road would vitalize the great valley of the Alaskan interior, containing an immense agri cultural tertitory, aud a line from tbe coast to Fairbanks will provide com munication with tbe Tanana and Y ukon river9, having hundreds of miles of navigable water, which steamboats already are traversing. Tbe plan also contemplates two short branoh lines to i connect with the Bebring river and tbe < Matanuska coal fields. Dealer in General Merchandise People stick closer together when tribulation and trouble come upon them than they do when all is going smoothly. The greater the trouble the faster the right sort stick. Nome has had considerable trouble and is going to have considerable more bo fore everything is again running as it was before the storm. But the real people, the people who are worth while will be found pulling together when the hard time is passed. This is right. Especially is it right in a small place like Nome and if we didn't pull togeth er we would be in a good deal worse plight than we are. We have GOT to pull together and put Nome ou her feet.? -Nugget. Complaints against Canadian, Jap anese and Russian fishermen invading Alaskau waters for halibut have led Secretary Kedfield to include in his estimates for the Department of Com merce an appropriotion $100,000 to pur chase one sea going vesssel, one light draft tug and six rapid motor boats to enforce the alien fishing law. Kor add itional employes he asks *$8,500. The department now has no vessel to use for this purpose, and the secretary points out that when a government official has to visit an Alaskan canuery or fishery to see that the law is observ ed, "his only means of transportation is a boat owned and run by the very person that may be violating the law." The fisheries of Alaska yield annually more than $12,000,000 while almost $35, 000,000 is invested in the salmon indus try, which employs 18,000 tneo. A Fairbanks correspondent of the Seattle P.-I. sayu: "Is there a second Blue Parka man in Alaska? That is the question asked by many resideuta of the Interior now, since the finding of the bodies of two men on the Val dez Fairbanks trail near Willow creek, fearful Jest they encounter harm on the way. Old timers here recall the days, not so many years ago, when the Blue Parka man, so called because he always wore a blue parka, terrorized the neighborhood around Fairbanks, lie was finally taken, however, only to escame three or four times before he landed with the doors of Leavenworth penitentiary for a fifteen year sentence. The Blue Parka man, whose real name was Hendrickson, made his headquart ers between the roadbouse at mouth of Engineer creek and Fairbanks creek. I He held up miners and the marshal's office was kept busy hunting for the mysterious desperado. Finally Hen drickson was arrested by Deputy Mar *hal George Dreibelbis when he came to town for food for his shack in the hills. He broke out of jail, to be cap tured several months later. Again be broke out, but only after the guards in the jail had been severely out. The third time he escaped he ptole a rifle, and never in the three months that he was out of jail did be go anywhere without it. Mushing along the Cirole trail one winter day Dreibelbis and Frank Wiseman, now ohief of police here, came upon a rifle stuck in the Bnow uear a sled. By waiting, the men managed to get the drop on Hendrick son, and he was brought back to the federal jail here." Heaving is the breast that wears the U. S. M. star these days in the First Division of Alaska. From the high "Mogol" clear down to the most in significant deputy in the line, apprehen sion of the coming shake is feared. The coming of a mail carrying steamer is dreaded by the force. And not until all the mail has been -care fully look over, does the heart returns to its normal beat. Such has been the almost unendurable situation in this Division for some little time. The feel ing that to "vamose" must carry with it a queer sensation for those whose berth is soft aud easy, and while as a rule, each of the little "lords" in their respective bailiwack want you to be lieve that he is unconcerned about his decapitation, we must not be misled by such fallacious statement, for he does very much. Of course there is this much about all those appointive offices, they are full of ups and downs, and seemingly, down they shall go that they may get a dose of their own medicine and feel the hand of authority over their heads. A good thing, else they would forget that they are human. ? Petersburg Progressive. Some one eaid that if be could write the songs of the nation be cared not who made the laws. This is in line with our legislative privilege and franchise in Alaska ? tbat is we are al j lowed to sing the songs. The American colonies in 1776 were not more unfair ly or tyrannically governed by Great Britaiu than is Alaska being governed today aud the supreme ignorance of many of those upon whose shoulders the governing act has been placed is really alarming and dangerous to our welfare. Many of oor congressmen haven't anything like a clear knowledge of Alaska geographically, to say noth ing of our needs politically and in dustrially, and from the very heart or hob of this supreme nest of ignorance comes the claim that Alaska people are not capable of self-government. Recently one Smith, congressman from Maryland, conceived the brilliant idea of selling a bunch of us Alaskans, bag and baggage, to Canada. Now its dollars to doughnuts that the limit of Smith's knowledge of Alaska consists in a semi careful study of a Russian map. By this map Smith discovered tbat we looked untrimmed and not enough the shape of a cabbage head to suit bis artistic eye. The faot that the Panhandle, or Southest Alaska, in con troliug 300 miles of coast line was ad vantageous to United States never en tered the granite boulder that Smith's ears are fastened to. That the present administration has shown a disposition to recognize us people as partially hu man in construction is indeed encour aging, but so long as we must be gov erned by men of the east who are not in sympathy with our western ways, and who do not care to understand our resources and our needs, we should at least have a herd law against ignorant* ly dangerous animals like Smith.?
