A change in fur regulations pro
hibits the killing of blue foxes, in
Southwestern Alaska and portion of
tile Westward region, except by fur
farmers or their authorized agents on
their own land, according to tele
graphic advices received from Wash
ington by E, P. Walker, chief of the
Biological Survey in Alaska. This j
regulation closes the open season for
bine foxes in these regions.
Mr. Walker is not able at this time
to state exactly which portions of the
Westward region are included in the
regulation as the advice was not clear
ly defined. He expects to receive aj
written confirmation as to the regu- j
lation, on one of the next boats, when !
he will make known the exact regula
The regulation has been made as a i
protection to the fox farmers from J
poachers, Mr. Walker said, and elim- j
inated any excuse that foxes caught j
are taken from lands outside of re-j
serves. |

An invitation to participate in the
National Travel and Outdoor Life
Exposition, to be staged in Chicago
early next spring, has been extended
to the Territory, according to an
announcement by Gov. Scott C. Bone.
It is suggested that Alaska arrange
for an exhibit representative of the
fishing, game, scenic and other at
tractions for persons desiring to
spend their summer vacations in the
outdoor world.
All sections of the country, it was
stated, in a letter received by Gover
nor Bone, from Maine to California,
and from Washington state to Flor
ida, will be represented in the ex
hibits. The big show will be held in
the famous Chicago Coliseum from
May 7 to 12.
The purpose of the exposition is
to further the campaign of inducing
American tourists to "See America
First." Many new tourists regions
have been opened up through pub
licity gained in former similar shows,
it is claimed.
If necessary financial arrangements
can be made, it is possible that an
Alaskan exhibit will be sent, the
Governor intimated. The Territory
has no fund for such purposes and
Alaska participation is largely de
pendent on financial and other as
sistance from independent sources.
The Governor now has the matter
under consideration and hopes to find
a way in which to take advantage of
the opportunity thus offered to ad
vertise Alaska's outdoor life and
tourist possibilities.

tising regularly In the Cordova
Daily Times.

SEATTLE, Jan. 12.—Oil in Alaska
was fully discussed the other even
ing at a dinner given at the Rainier
Club by Chairman A. S. Kerry to the
other 34 members of the Alaska de
partment of the Seattle Chamber of
Commerce. There has been some de
lay in the operations of the two big
oil companies now preparing to sink
wells in the Cold Bay district, and it
is not expected that actual drilling
for oil will start until the fore part
of February. On the question of fake
oil companies now selling thousands
of dollars worth of stock in this
city, Mr. Kerry said:
“While the strongly financed and
dominating oil companies in this
country today expect to discover oil
in commercial quantities in Alaska,
no other small fry oil company is in
the field spending a dollar in de
velopment, nor do any of them expect
to do so. Yet the circulars of fake
Alaska oil companies are flooding
the local market, and their stock will
never be worth a dollar.”
Mr. Kerry’s Westward Develop
ment Company’s interest in Alaska
oil lands has been manifested in in
ducing the Standard Oil and the As
sociated Oil Companies to get into
Alaska and drill. His company’s ob
jects having been accomplished, have
ended there.
BAY CITY, Mich., Jan. 13.—Admit
ting his love for the wife of the man
he is alleged to have murdered, Har
old H. Mendell declares he will seek
out the young woman, of whose
whereabouts he is now unaware, as
soon as he is free.
Mendell was charged with slaying
his chum, Rollin Morgan, after the
latter’s body was retrieved from the
Kawkawiin River, buried, then disin
terred and re-examined.
“1 loved Patty the first time I saw
her; then my wife put me up to kiss
ing her,” Mendell declares.
Expects Release
The accused man confidently ex
pects to be released.
“I’ll see Patty again,” Mendell de
cleared recently. “If she does not
come to me I'll go to her some way.”
Mrs. Morgan is reported to be in Albu
querque, New Mexico.
Mendell blames his wife for getting
him into his present predicament.
“She got me into it first, even
though unintentionally,” he said.
Discussing his love for Patty, he said:
“When you have lost your heart to a
girl, when she has taken possession
of your soul, you love her so much
you would die for her, yet find the
holding arm of the conventions—the
desire to kiss her is in you, oh, so
much!—then she up and kisses you
jt’s all over!”
Blames Husband
Morgan encouraged him to be
friendly with Mrs. Morgan, Mendell J
“He was a person who liked to have
one admire and he chummy with his
wife," he said. “Then he would tease
h r about whoever happened to be
their mutual friend. But Patty was
always true and faithful to Rollin.
Oh, how I wish I could see her!”
There are many obstacles in the
way of Mendell's anticipated release,
however. First, there is an investiga
tion into Mendell’s sanity by a com
mission of two physicians, and if he is
found sane there will be a murder
Mendell appeared greatly agitated
when told that his sanity was to be
tested. He said that his memory, save
for some minor occurrences since the
arrest, was clear and. well defined.
“My trouble shows to what length
a woman will go in her efforts to get
revenge,” he said. “I have been mar
ried 14 years, but I would not care to
predict what my own wife might do
on impulse. This charge against me
looks like the work of a jealous wo
men. Yet I do not honestly believe
my wife is responsible for it.”
There will be a special communica
tion of Mt. McKinley Lodge, No. 1S3,
F. & A. M., Friday evening at 8
o’clock. Work in first and third de
ll-2t. H. W. ACHISON, Secy.
