A Second Grand Jury Convened in
Extraordinary Session on
important Matter.
A 111.11111*1' grand jury i> bring
drawn to meet on Jan. -Till to
inquire info certain mailers
brought l.o the attention of the
court and requiring immediate at
tention. The clerk of the court
and jury commissioner are exer
cising great care in only select
ing the best men in the commun
ity as members of this body, a
new list from which to draw from
having been prepared by Clerk of
t he Court Angus McBride.
The purpose for which the sec
ond grand jury of the year has
been assembled is to judicially
inquire into the reason why cer
tain of our citizens are not pur
chasing tickets to Hie firemen’s
hall, inasmuch as the object in
giving- the dance is to purchase
a lire alarm system, a mailer of
benefit and protection In every
resident of the city, he they
householders or renters. Buy
your tickets and avoid an inqui
sition by the grand jury into
either your sanity or financial
standing, the only two legal ex
cuses for not lending a helping
hand to a public cause.

'Panama-Pacific exposition here in

it ails an expenditure of $100,000,

Rugged mountain scenery will
greet the visitors. .War a crash

main camp with its Chinese res

Red-shirled miners will pan the

dull intervals between shootings,
and there will be horn spoons and
pans in plenty for everyone to
try his hand at placer mining.
Let the tenderfoot well conceal

Sulzer for Governor.
Chas. Sulzer, prominent min
ing man of Prince of Wales is
land, ami brother of Governor
Sulzer, of Mew York, will he the
next governor of Alaska, succeed
ing Walter E. Clark late in March.
This is tile genuine political dope
arriving by the last mail from
an Eastern source which is au
thentic, and sets at rest a great
deal of speculation locally.
There had heretofore been sev
eral aspirants in the Held for gov
ernor, it being known that the
resignation of Governor Clark
would he in the hands of Presi
dent Wilson when he assumes of
fice on March 4, and if being gen
erally conceded that the appoint
ment would he made early, as the
office of governor of a territory
is generally considered the per
sonal representative of the ad
ministration.
Chas. Sulzer has been at. I lie
head of the Alaska Industrial
company, mining for copper on
Prince of Wales Island, for a doz
en years and is well known in this
section of Alaska. He is a broth
er ofGoveriior William Sulzer and
has not been identified with any
particular faction of the party in
Alaska. The appointment of Sul
zer is sure to bring satisfaction,
particularly in this section where
he is so well and favorably known.
