TOUCHING SCENE AT JUNEAU Man Who Made Keystone Canyon Famous Makes More History Eu Route to Cordova. When the Yucatan tied up at Jun eau last Saturday Ed Hasey hustled down the gangplank and greeted Gov. Hoggatt, who was standing on the dock, and the twain walked to one side and held a long, confidential conversation, while other distinguish ed Guggenheims stood back and wait ed for the goveruor to recognize them. 8" W. Eccles and W. It. Rust, Frank Burns and Stephen Birch were pas sengers 011 the Yucatau but the gov ernor saw them not until he finished his confab with Hasey. The interview was strictly private and as no report of its subject matter has been passed along to a curious . public the world remains in ignorance f of the affairs of state, war or finance •; which were discussed by the Damon * and Phythias of Guggenhelmdom. * Mayhap the proletariat will never '<* know whether the Guggenheim's gov ernor and minister of war were fram ing up a new system for the complete subjugation of Alaska Roughnecks who resist tho rule of Hoggatt and Hasey, or wore merely arranging for Hasey to keep the peace on election day, in Cordova, whither he was drifting. Nevertheless this beautiful scene afforded much interest to spectators and not a little to the big Guggen heims on the boat who figured in the Hoggatt game like rural callers in the White House waiting for the pres ident to get throug talking to Bill j * Taft. Seward Is Unable To Play That there is a bright lining behind the most gloomy cloud was evidenced j yesterday afternoon when a message ' from Seward was received stating that it will be impossible for the ball players of that town to meet Valdez tomorrow. The message came less, than an hour after the announcement i that the Elsie could not make the1 trip filled with sadness the hearts of the ball players and the fans. The 1 baseball players were not the only i ones to suffer because of the fact that the Elsie management went hack on ! its agreement. Al Grigshy of the I Valdez Dock Company used to bo i agont for the Elsie but ho resigned some time ago. Deepite this fact he has been taken to task for "going back on his bargain" and as he had nothing to do with it he has been kept busy explaining.

WOMEN TALK AND BUILDING BURNS Gossipers Prevent Sending Alarm by Refusing to Give Up the Telephone. LOSS AMOUNTS TO 530.000 Raisin Packing Plant in Fresno Goes Up in Smoke Because of Odd Delay. Fresno, C'al., July IS—Woman's fondness for gossip combined with her stubbornness resulted in a $30,000 lire just at the edge of this city yesterday afternoon. It was not because the conversation was heated that the flre resulted but because of the fact that the women chose to hold it over a telephone and refused to give up the lino to the frantic foreman of the Big Eagle Raisin Packing House. No one but central and themselves knows how long the women had been talking, and so far this detail has not become public, but it is known that they talked for more than tive minutes after the Are was first discovered and that they indignantly refused to give up the line when implored to do so by the foreman. "Ain't he sassy" said the woman who was talkiug about "Jane's husband" and "Let your old packing house burn" said the other. Time and again the foreman im plored that for only a minute he be granted the use of the line that he might call the tire department, but, the only result was abuse for "butting in," and at last the heat from the flames drove him from the telephone. He stood and watched the destruction of the plant and for all he knows to the contrary the women are talking yet. While the foreman was trying to telephone, another employe ran six blocks to the next nearest telephone and sent in an alarm. The depart ment responded but arrived too late to do more than cool off the ruins. I The plant was owned by Noble Bros.

FOR WIGKERSHAM 'Republicans of First District Rallying to Support of Former Judge. DEFEAT OF CORSOX CERTAIX Democratic Candidate Has Better Chance of Victory Than Ho^att's Man. Juneau, July IS—Word that James Wickersham has re-entered the dele gate tight was received here with great rejoicing on the part of thos^ opposed to Governor Hoggatt, and to his candidate, John Corson, Tho anti-Hoggatt republicans organized last night and are making all prepara tions to assure the First district going for Wickershain by a big majority. A fat campaign fund has been pledged and the campaign will extend to every polling place in the district. Corson is clearly out of the race in this section and many of his former workers have deserted him to go into the Wickersham camp. Several of these are among the prominent re publicans who will take the stump for Wickersham and the Corson forces ! are stunned by the manner in which : his following has loft him. They now ! realize that Corson's only hold on the voters was because he was the only I out and out republican in the field. Corson has also lost strength by his | repeated repudiation of Governor | Hoggatt. The governor was only 5 supporting Corson because of the ! latter's republicanism and now that I Wickersham is in the field all except ! two of the Hoggatt newspapers are I roasting Corson and predicting his I defeat by both Ronan and Wiuker 1 sham. The support of the other news papers is divided between Wicker ; sham and Konan, but the Wicker 1 sham men declare that he will poll practically the entire republican vote and will get a good slice of the dem ocratic strength. Nome Still On a Dead One Nome, July 17—Cale's election is : conceded here and despite the fact j that he has withdrawn hundreds cheered for him at a monster meeting held last night. A committee was ' appointed to wire him to renew the j fight and to apprise him of the at , titude of the people of the Seward | peninsula. It is evident from the foregoing that Nome, at the timo the message was filed, had not learned of James VVlckersham's determination to again become a candidate for election as delegate.—Ed.
