J. F. A. Strong will be re appointed. It is said that he is solid with the Wilson administration. Also, say Alaskans who ought to | Know, that Judge Robert W. Jennings of the First Judicial Division will be reappointed. He is saiu to stand well with the Alaska party and with the National party. Tile same is asserted m behalf of Judge Fred M. Drown ot the Third ’Division and Judge Charles K. Dunnell of the Fourtn. Changes in Nome District Outside of these officials, more or less uncertainty exists. It is said by | some that there will be a wholesale | political housecloaning in the Second | or Nome division. It is charged that * the federal officials there have per sistently ignored tlie local Democratic committee: that a good many Repubii can holdovers have been kept in office, and that many of the federal officials ; worked actively‘for James Wicker sham and against Charles A. Sulzer the Democratic candidate. The marshal's office in the Fourth Jdmsion has been more or less of a political storm center, and it is ex pected things will be doing in that section. \V. W. Spence. district attorney of the Third division, is slated for t?ie axe. ’n the opinion of some party men. His prosecution of the Valdez club, the charges that lu* tilled many offices with relatives, and the allega I tions that he is too friendly to the in terests of .Janies Wickersh im. are among the cases of his poor stand I ing. Charges have been made already | and tiled at Washington, 1>. C.

Sulzer, candi date for delegate. Those seeking of fices are assiduously courting the good favor of these two men and their dose friends. Moreover, there has been and is now a lot of quiet soft footing from Alaska to Washington, I). C., in th hopes of working the poli tical combinations ami landing some thing. It is indicated, however, from ! Washington, D. C., sources, that there will be “nothing doing” unless the indorsement of the Alaska Territorial committeeman is first obtained. In any event, the game is becoming intensely interesting, and from all in dications and signs it will not be long before something will drop. OIL SHALE LAND RESERVED FOR USE OF THE NAVY WASHINGTON.—(Special) — The most important single act during the mouth in connection with the elassili ' cation of mineral lands was the crea tion of two naval oil shale reserves, one of 4.">,440 acres in western Colo rado, and one of Sf!,.V>4 acres in north western Utah. The lands thus set , apart for the use of the navy contain bodies of shale which, when mined and distilled in properly constructed retorts, yield oil of good quality. Thus far oil has not been extracted j from shale in the Unitel States in commercial quantities, since the dis covery of crude oil developed by wells, . because oil can be secured in the lat ter way much more cheaply than through the more complex process of extracting it from shales. But the oil ! shale industry ha* existed in Scotland j for half a century in spite of the competition of the oil fields of the world and the time will doubtless come when the large oil shale deposits of western United States will also be developed in a commercial way. These naval oil shale reserves have boon created to provide for the needs of the navy during that future time when the ordinary oil fields have been so reduced that it becomes prac ticable and profitable to distill the more expensive shale oils. ■ WHY NOT trade at The Bazaar, j It saves you money.
