ABOUT THE MAIL.
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,

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

| A Good Beginning |
j are making a mistake in not marry
j ing Jenny now. 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’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
