The lies eases against, the Alaska Water, Light & Telephone company in the district court were shortened today by settlement of the action for conversion of personal property.

The observance of a day of thanks giving by the people of this nation has been an annual custom, having its beginning in the days of the Pil grim fathers, who thus early in the history of our country set apart a day for the giving of thanks to Al mighty God for mercies vouchsafed and blessings bestowed upon them as strangers in a strange land. As such it has been again recognized by the President of the United States, and, in accordance therewith, I, J. F. A. Strong, governor of the Territory of Alaska, do appoint Thursday, the twenty-seventh day of November, nineteen hundred and thirteen, a day of thanksgiving. And I recommend that upon that day the people of Alaska do refrain as far as may be possible from labor and unite in returning thanks to the Giver of all good things for the bless'ngs bestowed and fhe favors re ceived at His nands; for the peace that pervades the nation: for the prosperity that it enjoys: for the pro gress that the people of Alaska have made in the development of the boun tiful resources of the territory, and > for Lhe promise which the future af- j fords for the upbuilding of a mighty j commonwealth where life, liberty and : the pursuit of happiness shall be j fully assured to all. And while giv- ; ing thanks for the blessings we en- ! joy, let us not be unmindful of those who may be less fortunate in life and rememb r that all are bound by the | ties of a common brotherhood. Given under my hand and the Seal of Alaska, in Juneau, the capital, this , fifth day of November, in the year j of our Lord, one tnousand nine hun dr d and thirteen, and of the inde pend nee of th United States of America, the one hundred and thirty eighth.
