It 1? a peculiar thing that every pa
per in Alaska that favors territorial
government is edital l>v a man who
never saw the great interior of Alaska,
and everyone who has seen Alaska and
traveled over it as the senatorial com
mittee did, are opposed to it.? Valdez
The Prospector's statement is char
acteristic of the monarchists press of
Alaska In that it is without foundation
in fact. It is not true that none of the
editors of papers which are favoring
territorial government for this district
have never been in the Alaskan inter
ior, but it would have no bearing on
the question if it were true. The fact
that the thousands who live in the
great interior country are themselves
favorable to territorial government is
indicative of what the conditions of
that section require.

Adam Goldworthy Bnrned
Adam Goldworthy, a Henderson
creek miner, was burned to death In
the Reindeer roadhouse, near Damson,
about two weeks ago. The discovery
of the tragedy resulted from the report
of teamsters, who, In passing the site
of the roadhouse, found it had been re
duced to a lot of smoking embers. An
unfed and unblanketed horse stood shiv
ering in the barn, showing it had been
left longer than Intended by its master.
The teamsters reported the details of
their find to the police at Indian river
crossing. Constable Qervalse was Im
mediately detailed from that post to
make an investigation of the theory
that someone had been burned to death
in the fire.
By the time the constable reached
the scene the ashes were cold, aud he
had no difficulty in searching them.
He had not proceeded far with the
work when he came across the charred
corpse of Goldworthy.
