MUSEUM GETS
BURIAL PLATE
ANCIENT DATE
Another interesting relic of Rus
sian days of occupation of Alaska
has been added to the Alaska Mu
seum by the presentation of a brass
plate, believed to have come from
an old Russian grave, by James Rus
sell of Juneau. While it is impos
sible to accurately fix the date of the
plate, it is possible that it goes as far
back as 1800, although it may be of
a later date, according to Rev. A. P.
Kashevaroff, curator of the museum.
Mr. Russell procured the plate
from an old Indian who claimed to
have received it from his grandfather
who was a native of Yakutat. Accord
ing to the story told by this native,
the plate was in possession of his
family long before he has any recol
lection.
'The Yakutat post was established
in 1795 by Baronoff and was destroyed
by the Indians in 1905 in reprisal for
the Sitka trouble in 1804. There is
»P record of the names of the peo
ple residing at the Yakutat post other
than those of its three commanders,
Kuskoff, Polomoshni and Larionoi'f.
The latter with the rest of the Rus
sians at the post were killed in the
Indian attack, only Larionoff’s wife
and children boing spared.
There is no name, date, place or
other mark o£ positive identification
by which the time can be fixed. In
scribed on the plate in Russian script
is an epitaph which has been trans
lated by Rev. Kashevaroff as follows:
Being born with a sympathetic and
tender soul,
He hastened along the pathway of
this thorny life.
But first he had experienced two
severe events:
A bloody war and bold journey
around the world.
Mournful friends in an unpeopled and
languid country
Have honored his dust with a warm
and sincere tear.
Relatives and dear ones beyond the
blue seas:
Do not grieve for him, he has been
called by the heavens.
i lie plate has been in the psses
sion of Mr. Russell for about 10 years.
Although its possession originally by
Yakutat natives might indicate that
it came from that place, according to
Rev. Kashevaroff, it may have come
from the Russian post, Nutchek, es
tablished on Hinchinbrook Island in
Prince William sound prior to the
founding of Yakutat, or it may even
have come from Sitka and been man
ufactured there years after the de
struction of Yakutat. The plate is
25 inches high by 15 inches wide and
about one-eighth of an inch thick. It
has been placed on exhibition in the
museum.

Press) .—Colton Secret III, a British
Friesian cow, has set a new record

milk in 24 hours. In nine months she

times her own weight.

BRITISH WISH
TO STAVE OFF
EMIGRATION
LONDON, Jan, 29 (by Associated
Press).—The British government is
begnining to put into effect its plan
to keep within the boundaries of the
British empire the emigrants from
England, cotland, Whies and Ireland
who want to seek new homes in dis
tant parts of the world.
This empire settlement schemejias
been held in abeyance since the war
because there were so many soldiers
to be repatriated; j>ut the first large
party comprising 1,100 emigrants has
just left for Australia. This party is
under government direction and the
emigrants received a certain amount
of government assistance.
(Sir James Connelly, agent here for
western Australia, announces that for
the next two years 1,000 emigrants
will be sent to Australia each month,
their passage being paid by the gov
ernment.
The government has openly ex
pressed its disfavor toward schemes
for emigration from the British Isles
to South American countries. In con
sequence, a campaign by Peru to in
duce Engljsh and Scotch to come
there and settle has been abandoned
after hundreds of them had accepted
offers for free transportation to that
country.
STOWAWAYS SEEKING
PASSAGE TO AMERICA
HAMBURG, Jan. 29 (by Associated
Press). — Stowaways from virtually
every country in the world were found
aboard the Spanish steamer Mar del
Norte before it sailed from here for
the United States. The captain had
to call the port authorities to help him
clear his ship of the unusual number
who were seeking an unpaid passage
to America.
Among the stowaways were Eng
lishmen, Americans, Australians,
Africans, Chinese and Indians, as well
as a number of Germans. All declared
they wanted to go to the United
States to find employment.
