They will station themselves at the narrow pass called Uvimah through which the seals pass on iheir way to the rookeries, and there slaughter them by the wholesale. A knowledge of this fact influenced the Alaska company in making a contract for ten years instead of twenty, as heretofore, as the Siber ian rookeries will suffer severely. AT HIS COMRADE'S GRAVE.
