Both xi ..j mm w.o! 'a"a. .. nim .ll.a. l, HUG are firm in their conviction that Dr. Cook and his party made the ascent on the southeastern slope of Mount McKInley, after a futile attempt to reach the summit on the west. Mr. and Mrs. Wade spent the en tire summer of 1906, 1 respecting along the southern base' of Mount McKInley, they tell a Portland report er. While searching for "pay dirt" about the foot of the mountain they came upon Dr. Cook and his party- camped at Dutch Creek, a branch of the Kahijtna, which drains the southwestern side of the moun tain. This was on the afternoon of July 14, 1906, according to entries In a diary kept by Mrs. Wade of her sojourn in the wilds near the base of the mountain. Cook and hU party were then camped about 20 miles from Mount McKInley and to the southwest. After a few hours' visit in the Cook camp, during which Dr. Cook expressed his determination to reach the summit of the mountain, the Wade party pressed on eastward. According to statements Of Mr. and Mrs. Wade, verified by maps and diary note3, the Wade party contin ued eastward, along the foot of the mountain, for four weeks and event ually reached the southeastern base 0.R.&N. Railway Files Objections Board of Equalization Asked to Re duce. Assessment from $25,000 to $7,000, The O. R. ft N. through its repre sentative filed objections before the board of equalization to the assess ment of the road by County Assess or B. F, Miller and asked that the amount be reduced from $23,000 a mile to $7,000 a mile. Tue matter w3 taken under ad visement by the board, but as It has been officially stated that the cost of the road was $28,000 a mile It is scarcely probable that the demands for a reduction will be acceded to. Very few other objections were filed. A few tax-payers thought their assessments were higher than their neighbors and registered complaints, but on the whole the assess ment seems to have been considered just and equitable, The board will be in session until November 18, i a a aaaaano clio zscnacanca a a D o a a a a a n a a El n a a B a n a n a a a n M a a a n a a a a a a a ca a a a a a a a a Remodeling of Store Room Now In Progress We Must Have Room and in order to get that room we will give a liberal discount on all ymmmmeir ood Lawns, Dimities, etc. and in fact on many things that are too numerous to mention in this small space.
