CAUSE ton COMPLAINT.
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

THE STRAIGHT Of IT
Skagway cltuen? are laluriii under
a misaprehension of the lav. ?! n the*
claim that the *x- 1 ;il rul< pertdnlnp
to bawdy houM^ an<': nibbling >'o not
come uu>l> r the contrv! o( tii strict
official* I'nder tin* <. t.> the
que?tio.iof liiiuor !i< ?. :?i laliH
cation* of ! In - i !?, i\ itijr - ; . ision*.
U left entirvlv i ? ie ih> judge.
It was evident that the na jital lejfi-e
lator* intended to hold the judge re
sponsible for the -aloon license. 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
Had the Dispatch informed Itself on
Skagwav conditions, it woui I proliahly
have remained silent on the subject
which It tries to discuss.

on the freighter Venture. Mr. Shaw ,
states that before that shall have been

company will -receive, in the near fu
ture, a large consignment of the \\ el
lington washnut coal. 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.

of four soldiers on theii way to Kort

The deserters wore brought to Skag
