(By The Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 10, The first signs of inter-section
al rivalry in the Democratic party since their victories in
the election last Tuesday, appeared with the certainty that
the northern Democrats were opening a drive to capture the
speakership of the House of Representatives, for which al
so, the south is contending. a
The northern contingent of the Democratic party declar
ed that the South had been in the saddle for four years be
cause they held the majority leadership and chairmanship
of all major committees. However, the southern Democrats
ask for more power, and emphasized the fact that the north
ern Democrats now have more seats than the south.
Representative Martin Kennedy, a
Tammany Democrat, who disclosed
the drive said that he believed “New
York was entitled to the speaker
ship.” This fact topped the lis‘t

tinued to attack the budget, relief,
and public works problems.

NOME’S NEW BUSINESS
DIRECTORY SHOWING
REBUILDING HOUSES
(Continued From Yesterday)
Going eastward on First avenue in the block between
Federal Way and Stedman, we come to the place where the
fire originated, the Golden Gate Hotel. This was a three
story structure, formerly owned by Jas. A. Swartzell, who
died here several years ago. Across from the Golden Gate
were several residences and warehouses which were also
buttled to the ground, as were several other adjoining build
ings on both sides of the hotel. The fire also burned resi
dences and warehouses directly North for one block.
Back onto Front street again where was located The
Board of Trade, beer parlor, card and pool room, owned by
H. B. Phillips and James Hewitt. This was a large twb
story building and very long. Above the Board of Trade
were several rooms for lodging and the homes of Mr. and
Mrs. Hewitt and Mr. Phillips. Mr. Hewitt it is understood
is planning on building next spring, on the site of the old
Board of Trade, destroyed in a November fire 1926. Mr.
Phillips has opened a card room and beer parlor on First
Avenue several doors west of the Telephone office.
Next door to the Board of Trade, westward, was an office
building in which O. D. Cochran had his law office and libr
ary. Below him was a repair shop.
Across the street from this building was the Modem bate,
a restaurant being run by Harry Brandt, and which was
destroyed by fire. Above the Cafe were the dental offices
of Dr. H. G. Hughes. The building was the property of Ed.
Gross. —
Next door to the Modern Cafe was the Surprise Store,
owned and operated by Mrs. C. C. Crooks, carrying general
merchandise. Mrs. Crooks and her daughter Miss Phyllis
had their home in the rear of the building, loosing every
thing when the flames burned their way down Front street.
Next westward to a little alley-way which ran northward
from Front street was the old Horseshoe Saloon and across
the alley-way was the office of the Roust Airways arid the
home of Harry Nelson and family connected with that com
pany. This building was also completely burned. At pres
ent the Roust Airways have erected a building on the corner
of First Avenue and B street' which will serve as an office
and the home of the Nelsons’.
Across the street from the old Roust Airways building
was the garage of the Nome Motor Company operated by
C. M. Allyn and Bud Harper. This building was also burn
ed. The Nome Motor Coompany is now coonstructing a
large building on Front street and Hunter Way, to be used
as their garage and repair shops and living quarters above.
Next door to the garage on Front street was the business
house of Harry Hagen, optician and jeweler. This building
was also destroyed by the flames. The Hagens’, wife and
daughter too, lost their home on First Avenue near the
Court House. At present the jewelry store is located in
the second house westward from the old Pioneer Mining
Company office building, now being used as the Court
House.
Adjoining the old location of the Koust Airways was
a storage house belonging to the Lomen Drug Store. This
was also burned to the ground. Next to that was the for
mer Independent Meat Market and cold storage plant own
ed by Lehmann’s, the front part being used as a restaurant
and the rear housing the cold storage plant.
John Lichtenberg Hardware was located next door. It
was a large two story building with living quarters above
and storage and warehouse in the rear. Mr. Lichtenberg is
now located in the former Eskimo Church on Stedman ave*
nue, but is planning on moving into his new building within
a very short time, The new building is being erected about
100 feet east of his old location and will be on the corner
of the new Barracks Square.
Next to the hardware store The Nome Daily Nugget, was
burned to the ground with the loss of its entire printing
plant and home of the Maynard family above. The Nome
Nugget office is temporarily located in the Bering Brother
hood club house, next door to the Methodist church on
Second avenue and C street.

Code Violations
Cause of Setback
Coast Business
(By The Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Nov. 10— In
creasing code violations cost the
Pacific Coast “no real improvement
in business over a year ago.”
Such was the fact discovered by
the American Federation of Labor
Survey just completed.
Failure to enforce code regula
tions was given as one of the causes
fo# code viql^ions increasing; the
drought and lack of cooperation in
business, the National Recovery Ad
ministration declared “were items
of real importance,” regarding exis
ting conditions.
July 19th, 1933. He was held for
twenty-five thousand dollars ran
som.
The assault on Miss Margaref
Hvirtienna was made a few miles
north of Albany, as her automobile
sped past a parked car, where a
man was standing on the running
board. She was unable to identify
the man she stated.
This attack was believed to be
evidence that others interested dir
ectly in the kidnapping were making
threats, to be sure that those persons
already apprehended, did not dis
close all they knew.
The long arm of the Federal gov
ernment, during the past ten mon
ths has reached out and plucked ev
ery major kidnapper, and those
connected with any kidnappings
which approached national promin
ence. Uncle Sam’s record in 1934
is 100 percent, even going back far
enough to nab the Lindbergh kid
napper.
