When it was decidi d vby V\r>
federal ministry i.» i• •. iv » the archi
tectural competition f ir i cP fdgn for
the federal pm-liamon; nouse it ('an
herra (the Commonwealth capital
site) which was . isj • -tided in Septem
ber. inn, in ar<*n11 nt of the outbreak
of the war, A traliau architects de
clared this w pi •» iically giving the
thing to the I'nited States.” By this
wa ■ meant the advantage held by Am
ericans in that their nation is not at
war.
The Victorian Institute of Architects
Protested against proceeding with the
competition at present, but the min
ister of home affairs, King O'Malley,
a Canadian who was once a New York
bank clerk, replied that the decision
was that of the cabinet and was unani
mous; that while some architects
might not be able to compete on ac
count of the war, sufficient talent
should be available to ensure a satis
factory range of designs being submit
ted.
As announced by Mr. O'Malley, the
terms of the competition are: De
signs must be in by January 31, 1917.
A total sum of $30,000 will be paid in
premiums for the first eight designs,
the first design entitling its author
to $10,000. The judges will be G. T.
I’oole, Australia; Sir John J. fturnett.
Great Britain; Victor Daloux, France;
Kliel Saarinen, Russia, and Louis H.
Wagner, Chicago. The ministry will
employ the architect placed first by
■ the judges for the initial portion of
the building, but only provisionally,
for subsequent stages, inasmuch as
the construction of the edifice will be
spread over a number of years,

Carl Watson, of Seward, drew a
sentence of one year in the Valdez
jail for using a gun to emphasize his
request of the bartender of the Pal
ace saloon at that place to provide
him with the wherewithal to assuage
his thirst.

Following a quarrel between A. N.
Brown, a mine operator on Lucky
gulch, Livingood creek, and Bob Mann,
the latter struck Brown alongside the
face with his fist, presumably with a
rock concealed therein. Brown's face
was badly crushed and he was taken
to the hospital.

The finding of a $20 gold piece in
the cleanup of a Nome beach miner
recently was given publicity, and
brings to light the fact that a native
there has picked up several $5 and
$10 pieces during the past summer,
and an Eskimo found a $20 gold piece.
It is said that some of the natives
make a regular practice of searching
the beach there for lost coins.

I was not president of the Mine Owners’ Association
at the time the letter published by George Dooley was
issued.
My term of office ended September 1, 1907, when I
resigned.
While I was president of the Mine Owners’ Associa
tion it issued no such letter, nor did it discriminate in any
way against union labor. The operators belonging to the
organization were at that time paying $6.00 per day in
stead of $5.00, as mentioned in the letter published by
Dooley. JOHN RONAN.
