During tlie winter months, when 11n* interior of Alaska is popularly supiiosei l o lie isolated, mail is delivered in Fairbanks on an aver age ot twice a vviek ho well has tlie contract lie* i. handled that it is very seldom that tin* mail is late, and never that any unreasonable de lay occurs During last winter, from October to June, about sixty con signments of mail from tin* Outside, either first class or second class were delivered. Since June 11. when the Iasi trail mail was received, then have l*t i n fourteen Outside mails re reived by tin* river route This in ( hides the mail to be brought in by tiie Koyukuk. This has not been the fault of tilt Northern Commercial company, lot its contract with the government hat in every ease been lived tip to He tween Fugle and Tanana the com pany is supposed to bring one tnai a week; and between Tanana am: Fairbanks it is called on to carrj six mails i vert month. A refer elite to the mail receipt book at tht post office will chow that even more mails have be. n deliverd by the com pany than the contract calls tor Hut these mails tin- not net essarih Outside mails, anil the contract i: complied with if a few ■■way" letters are brought here It is not the torn pane's fault if Outside mail is no offered, and it is always prepared ti carry it when it is on hand. Tht fault lie: with, the department, whirl evidently has neglected tt providt for us as carefully during the sea son of open navigation as during tin winter. it looks like bad management some where In this progressive age i ought to follow that such an ins portant commodity as Uncle Sam': mail should make better time whet the going is good than when obsta cits have to be overcome. The rivei route has been selected because from the popular viewpoint, it is tht line of least resistance. But it ha: proved a failure under existing con ditions and it is time to look arounc for a better system. Mail, to the mer chants and businessmen of a com inanity situated as is Fairbanks, is e very important matter, and the short citing of the time of transit by ever a day is well worth striving for il the better time can be made with out lessening the certainty of a rea sonable regularity. A great deal has been said and written regarding the possibilities of tne Valdez trail as a summer route of travel, and it is only a few weeks ago tha. Major Richardson made a fast trip over it with a wagon. With the Copper River & Northwestern Railroad operating trains in the summer time with reg ularity. and thus cutting out the worst part of the trail, there should be no great difficulty in bringing in the first class mails over the trail all summer. If the company is able to keep the road open all this winter there need be no cessation in the service, and the mail could be routed that way all the year round. Once let it be used as a summer mail route, and the Valdez trail will be so improved, at no very great expense, as to make of it a good wagon road. It is not recommended that there be any change in the routing of the second class mails during the sum mer, as this would be neither feasi ble economically nor just to the present contractors, who are working under a four-year contract signed last June. In any case a slight delay in the arrival of second class matter is seldom fraught with any serious con sequences, and the present carriers have consistently demonstrated that they are willing to do all that lays in their power to expedite the deliv ery. II this transportation of the first class mail over the summer route is deemed advisable it is not a bit too soon to commence an agitation for the adoption of the plan. A petition to the department, advocating the change, should be circulated at once. If it will result in Fairbanks getting as good a mail service in the sum mer as it has enjoyed in the win ter it is surely something worth striving for. WOOD INSPECTOR NEEDED. Knrly as it is in the season num erous complaints have* been made to The C'tlzen in regard to alleged short measure given by some of the men selling we»od in town This is r.ot the tirst time these complaints have been heard, for they have been, frequent every winter, and there is little doubt that many huudreds of cords of wood that existed only in the imagination of the men male ic the -ale- have been charged and t aid for 1 is easy enough to advise that the wood should always he measured before it is paid for. hut this is not always feasible. Frequently the man ordering the wood is not pres ent when it is delivered and kicks made later have not the same force as those voices! before the wood is unloaded. Neither is it every woman who knows just how to measure a cord wood, hut there is every reason why she should be protected to at least a reasonable extent. In nearly every city of am size elsewhere there is an inspector of weights and measures, and deal ers are kept within reasonable hounds through fear of a penalty accruing from an attempt to extort from the purchaser money for some thing which tliar purchaser has not received In Canada the govern ment takes <;ire of the consumer by appointing in every town a weights and measures inspector, and lit is this official's duty to Inspect I all the scales in use and keep the same kind of t;ih on commodities ! sold by measure. ' such an official could nr appointed for Fairbanks l>> ordinance, and. .if one-tenth of the complaints made are warranted, his salary would be saved to the public in one month at this time of the year Let an I ordinance he passed providing a ! severe penalty for the man who 'i tries to sell for a cord of wood ; what is less than a cord and dis honest dealers will soon quit the practice of trying to hand out short measure No honest man will he , hurt, but the man who is trying to 'steal will lie afraid to take a chance Jin continuing dishonesty because he ] knows that the publicity that would he given to his first appearant e be fore the city magistrate would ma terialh harm his business. One of the present city officials ; could be appointed inspector of j measures at a trifling increase in Ibis sala-'y. and the mere fact that ; he was there to enforce the ordin ance would, of itself, be sufficient i in almost all cases to stop the dis ! honest practice. Such an appoint J tnent is urged on the city council, any member of which can easilv con vince himself that there are many complaints being made if he will take the trouble to inquire among his acquaintances. This is the time of the jear when most people art getting in their winter's wood and it would seem to be a good time to in augurate a new order of things whereby the householder and tner chant can be afforded some degree of protection and assurance that they arc getting what they are paying for. i mu tin re are men engaged in the wood business who conduct their business honestly goes without say ing. These would not be hurt in any particular by the ordinance. They would, instead, be helped lie cause the illicit competition they have had to cope with would be eli'.nina'ed. I!ut that the practice of giving short measure has been indulged in by others is equally cer tain. and this practice should be stopped. THAT DETENTION HOSPITAL. Because the bill appropriating $2">, 000 for the erection and equipment of detention hospitals for the insane at Fairbanks and Nome failed to make any provision for the purchase of a site for the hospitals there is a considerable danger that the build ing may not be erected here until Congress shall have rectified the er ror and made another appropriation of money for the purchase of the necessary land. As Alaskans have already had many examples of the celerity with which Congress works for Alaska none will be enthusiastic of getting any immediate results. it has been frequently held that no part of the money appropriated for the erection of a government building shall be expended on a site, and properly drawn bills provide that the appropriation shall include both site and erection. If this bill had done so the judge and marshal of this division could at once call for ■jius iui me erection oi tne maiding, and go right ahead with it as soon as the governor of the territory had given his approval to the plans. The way the matter stands now, how ever. there is every likelikood that at the coming short session congress will be too busy to pay heed to any such matter as this for Alaska, and we shall have to wait until the new Congress has settled down to work next spring. This means waiting for about another year for the bill to be signed. But there is another way out of the difficulty. If a site were donated the work could be commenced at once, and this. Judge Overfield states, is the course which would be pursued. Here is a splendid oppor tunity for some philanthropist who has the welfare of the city at heart, and a couple of lots on his hands for whiih he lias no particular use. to earn the thanks of the communi ty otherwise, the city mav find that it has the necessary land to do nate for tin- purpose Mayor Nor dale and his confreres on the coun cil can l>e safely counted on to take prompt action along the lines which they consider best for the city's interests ALASKA AND CONSERVATION. What do we want with this worthless area, this region of savages and wild beasts, of des erts of shifting sand and whir) winds of dust, of cactus and prairie dogs? To what use could w* ever hope to put these great deserts or these endless moun tain ranges, impenetrable, and covered to their base with per petual snow ? What t an we ever hope to do with this Western Coast of three thousand miles, rock-bound, cheerless and unin j viting. and not a harbor on it — w hat use have we for such a country? Mr President 1 will never vote one cent from the public treasury to place the Pa cific Coast one inch nearer to Boston than 't is now." A little over fifty years ago these 1 words rang through the hall of Cott ! gress as the gn at orator of that day. Daniel Webster. brought his fist down so emphatically on his desk, while his countenance and voice por trayed bn utter disgust f ir demands from the far away Oregon country; "What did a frontiersman like Dr. Marcus Whitman and other mission ! arii s and explorers know of the fu |turo possibilities of this vast, waste less territory. Why, here were men i who had been in the fur trade for | years who declared tlie country ab solutely worthless, excepting for the | trappers.” Ah. short-sighted “t'n«le Dan.*' He I could net even see through the ; scheme ot the fur trailers in keep ! emigration out of their trapping tur rit >rv. Die earlv missionaries were j men and women of culture and edit j cation, character, of principle an 1 'determination—and with mind; clear ] and calculating. They and come from the far Hast, and knew a I country'.; future when nronerlv de | vcloped. They realized 1 lie Atlan [lie coast was a wilderness at one lime and could ouickiy recognize the West as a land of many advantages for a great future common wealth. These men braved the hostilities | ot savage Indians and the ravages of wild beasts—plodded throng,a deep 'snows and swam rivers, subsisted on : ro us and raw meats, to re .id the seat of government to lav iHo claims of the Oregon country before Con gress They begged of those “on the throne" to give the scattering emigrants some protection and to .a sist in opening a better trail from the Missouri river to the Pacific ocean. But the dilatory Congress lis icned to the speeches like Daniel Webster*, while hundreds of emi grants were being massacred by In dians and years were lost which j would have put the Northwest in its present progressive and commercial condition a long time ago. Short | sightedness and ignorance of social ianil civil matters of the Pacific Xortli j west on the part of some in Con |gress has stunted many legitimate | projects, and when the "powers” are i legislating on supposed conservation I and giving the matter an artesian [flow of oratory like Daniel Web j ster. they have a powerful had case of constipation of practical knowl j edge. There is today in Congress quite a number of "I'ncie Dan's” endeav oring tj dictate to the pioneers ot Alaska. There are those in Washing ton who imagine that Alaska is populated principally by Esquimos, Indians and rough miners, and that the only real tame men we have is either the one sent as a delegate to Congress or those whom the govern ment appoints to office and sends out from the East to "show" poor, ignorant (?) Alaskans how to handle the affairs of the territory. Like the pioneers of the Old Oregon coun try. these Alaskans have come from far and near opened trails and blazed the way — to one of the rich est countries on the face of the globe—men of sterling character, men of education and progressive ideas, and a wide and far-seeing knowledge of present conditions and future pos sibilities There are lawyers and judges capable of bringing to justice any who might illegitimately lay claim to any ground. Hundreds of pioneers have staked claims in com pliance with the law, and fully ex peeling me assistance or a wise gov ernment in making it possible (or highways and railroads to reach cer tain localities which would put a' mine on a paying basis. There are hundreds of vacant chairs at the fireside in a far-away home—aching hearts and children deprived of the actual necessities of life, while a pioneer husband and father in the Northland awaits the action of a dilatory legislation. Alaska was purchased for $7,000, 00'), rn amount which ihe fisneries alone has paid many times over. She has produced a quarter of a billion cut of her goldfields and has a deposit of copper, coal and other minerals worth more than the gold and gold mining in Alaska is Just in its infancy.

It earnestly to be hoped that the Delegate will succeed, before i the nex election, in getting enact jell a law which will give to Alas ha the Australian ballot and a reg i 1st ration system. Past elections have deinotytrated that the "While' | vote of the country might easily b< j subverted and rendered litigator} | bv the wholesale voting of a lot o I transients, who have absolutely no i interest in the country beyond the ! summer job on a railroad or at a ! cannery that it affords.

Start in with what j you have and it will grow." Dick i.arramore was very much im pressed with his aunt’s advice. He ! talked with Jenny about it. and they agreed that they would make a be ' ginning ar once. Together they could | raise $7a and they knew of a cot j tage they could get for $20 a month. I bey fixed a date for their wedding and began to hunt for furniture that they could pick out at a small cost One day Dick heard of an auction sale of household goods that was to I take place in a neighboring village land concluded to go over and see I if he could get anything that would help him and Jenny at their house keeping. He bought a dining table for $1 and a sideboard for $tb Among other things put up for sale was a basket full of shells, eggs and other ofdities. Dick had always taken great interest in curious things and had quite a collection of old dirk knives, bits of uncommon metals, shells and other articles. There were two large eggs in the basket he saw at the auction that excited his curiosity. He had never seen eggs of that size or shape. He forgot for the time being that he needed furniture and began to bid on the basket of curios. An old woman st emed to covet them and bid against him till she had rais ed her offer to $7. Dick bid $7.25. and the basket was knocked down to him. That brought him to his senses. He had invested abotit one-tenth of all be had to spend on furniture in a basket of worthless trinkets. He was so disgusted with himself that he left the auction and drove home. The boldest thing he had ever thus far done was facing Jenny, showing her, among his purchases, the basket of kuiekknacks. "Why, Dick!” she exclaimed when she saw the latter. Dick hung his head. "They’ll make a nice ornament for our sitting room.” said the girl, see ing by Dick’s rueful appearance that he regretted his purchase as much as she did. and. putting her arms around his neck, she gave him a kiss. "What big eggs those are!" she said. “What bird laid them?” "I don’t know.” said Dick, "and I don’t care." “We’ll ask Prof. Drummond." Jenny showed Professor Drummond the eggs, and he pronounced them auk’s eggs. "What’s an auk?” asked Jenny. "Alcidae—swimming birds with a po'nted bill, very short wings and legs placed very far back. Penguins belong to the alcidae family. I'm not sure." he continued, examining the eggs critically, “but these are eggs of the great auk.” "Is the great auk superior to the rest?" asked Jenny "In one respect. They are extreme Iv rare Indeed. I think they an extinct " If they are extinct how came these eggs to I e in existence?" "They must have been procured before the bird's extinction. At any rate. they are great curiosities They must be very valuable." Jenny's heart leaped with Joy. Per haps they could sell them for what Dick gave for them This would buy some kitchen utensils she needed. "Do you think, professor." she ask ed. "that we could get as much as f7.2."> for them?" The professor smiled "If they are great auk's eggs." lie | replied, "you can get more than a I hundred times $7 Jenny opened I eyes. "I would advis you to put them away carefully, i will bring Profes sor Wilson, the naturalist, to see them. He will settle the question whether they are great auk's eggs or , not ” Jenny put the eggs away. It was fall she eotihl do to keep from telling I !'< k v hat the professor nil sail, hot she shrank from raising her lover’s expectations to have them blighted, so she kept her secret, and the next day the two professors called, looked at the eggs, and Professor Wilson pronounced the eggs those of the great auk. Me gave their value at about a thousand dollars each. He amoed to send a man who would of fer tht m all they were worth except a fair protit. Jt’tnv kept her secret in line stvlo. though site said. “Heaven knows uh.it a struggle I have to do sol" j One t.ight when Dick came t> see lur she said to him: "Dick, you know what a poor busi i ness you showed yourself in buy ling that basket of trinkets" I’ka-e bury that matter." Well, since you were so stupid as to buy those things 1 think 1 had letter sell them for you. I’ve sold the two big eggs already." "Sold them?" "Yes 1 got a good price for them." "How much?” "Two thousand dollars." "Stop your nonsense and tell me.” Jenny drew a cheek for $2,000 and tried to show it to him. but it* r feel ing. own-,.me her. and, throwing her arms around his neck, he could see nothing at all. They spent the rest of the even ing locked in each other's arms and I lanning what they would do with their wealth. j GASTRONOMICAL QUOTATIONS. — Show a fair presence and put off these frowns, and ill-beseeming sem i blance of a feast.

He fore the National Republican league last night Mr. Roosevelt denounced the methods of Tammany Hall. It is understood that President Taft is mi.'h pleased with the indorsement he leceived at the convention, anu has pledged himself to support tHe ticket named. Henry L.
