There is no doubt but that the mer chants of Skagway have just cause of complaint against the Pacific (.'oast Steamship i'ompany. which, for the imritoMi of securing a little extra busi ness, delaved the Cltj of Seattle for 3K hours longer than was utvessarv. When a '.rans|iortaiion company pub lishes a schedule it is morally bound to operate as nearly on the time as adver tised as possible. That much is obvi ous. Merchants, business men of all classes, are required to accommodate themselves to the schedirte. They make arrangements in connection with business matters regulated to conform to the time tables of steamship compa nies for davs in advance of the sailings. It is not fair to them nor to the travel ing public to make arbitrary chauges without giving notice This is partic ularly true as to this northern country, where so much de|iends upon the op ?? rat ion of the stea1 ship-> !. .-onnect us with the sta' * !>.!)* Ve? chants have a right to ki. ?? ii. ,i.lv.:uv' . where IsMsible. what :o ? \pwt of transporta tion companies, that : l.?-\ 1. t. not l>e at a disadv:i. i? >u ' h i ipetitive war for trad--.

The amount in each settlement i-> tirst de termined by the judge. Those apply ing tor license-. must satisf\ the judge a* to their good intention*. I'nder the code no gambling is allowed in any liar room. Bawdy hou-.es cannot secure a liquor license, ami therefore have no right to sell liquor in competition with ?he licensed saloon. Unfairly the city of Ska^'oay asks the district officials to x?ume the res|>onsibility of an open town when it is contrary to their oath of office. Juneau Dispatch. Who told the Juneau Dispatch what the people of Skagway claim? The people of Skagwa* have never claimed that thequrstionof gambling and the social evil were not matter* over which the code gives the federal court* jurisdiction. Skagway.i's do not have to be taught their A It Is. This is the second time the Dispatch has attacked citizens of this town re cently. and in both instances it has dis played absolute ignorance as to the sit uation. Once the city council was at tacked, ami its members referred to as grafters. The article was libelous, ?ml hail the meml<ers of the council thought the einie worth the |iowder, they might have had the editor of the Dis|?ateh righting for his lilierty in the district court The greatest fault with the Dispatch is a habit of discussing matters of which it knows nothing. The law lo Alaska is not unlike that in other sections of ll? I'nilnl Slates which gives lioth municipalities and the state* jurisdiction over misdemean ors. That is known here as well as it is in the office of the Dispatch. What the people of this city do claim is that it has become the universal isustom throughout thw Cnited Stales to put certain minor offenses, among which are some of those over whi'-h the fed eral authorities in this city assumed jurisdiction, alMolutely in the hands of the municipalities. Ami the peo ple of Skagway, say further, that it U not entirely becoming in the federal authorities to complain at the manner in which the cit* of Skagway has been enforcing the law. when, as a matter of fact, it has followed the precedent made bv those same federal authorities, during the several years ihey have been in office. The question of saloon licenses does not figure in the matter Wall. Had the Dispatch informed Itself on Skagwav conditions, it woui I proliahly have remained silent on the subject which It tries to discuss. Itirch Bark Baskets. at I'ase A Dra per'*.

This is used particularly for ranges, ami is made by being washed down and sifted through screens that leave the coal about the size of walnuts. It is clean and it is claimed for it that it will hold an even tire longer, and is thus more desirable for cooking purines. MSMMMMMMilMNMWMMWWII PtRSONAL MENTION 4-4^w<w**w?otie4MWWW?6eiMe?hi-4i B.

FOR TRIAL Two Deserters Hi ought From Egbert Two deserters from the United State* army werr brought out from Kort Kg bert to be tried at Skagway, arriving here last night. The guard consisted of four soldiers on theii way to Kort Law ton to bo discharged. They wont south on the City of Seattle. The deserters wore brought to Skag way for trial because there are not suf licent ottlcers at Fort Kg bert, near Eagle, to constitute a court martial. A court martial has already been or ganized at Skagway. It Is believed tho men will plead guilty to desertion, us they had como in and given them selves up.

The hall was in good condi tion. the music furnished by* Messrs. Callurman, Hlaiichardand Patrick, was excellent, and the crowd was just right. Then every number on the mimical program was well rendered and cut hus iastically applauded. The surprise, a cake ?alk, participated in by some of the l>e?t known mcniliers of the Arctic lirotherhood, was immense. Light re freshments were served, and a delight ful time was had by all. l.o^rmnkliitt In MpiIco. In northwest Mexico the courting Is all done by tlio lady.
