July 10.—TP.e miry appropriations which were pa-sed by the senate last uiuht in- x ni»* an appropriation of fifteen •.ho asand dollars for the purchase of dditional ground for the federal building in Fairbanks, i his amount as s cured by the Tanana people by .strenuous efforts on their part ami those of their representatives. The uranting; of the money is regarded as a most favorable sign that Fairbanks viii at least be close to the govern- ment railroad terminal, but all mat- ters of importance to Alaska are cou- pled in the minds of the people with the railroad question and the appro- priation of the money may have no connection with the question at all. When the bill finally passed the senate it included all the Alaska ap- propriations which had been recom- mended by the committee. Tnese in- clude the fifty thousand dollars for the Alaska exhibit at the Panama ex- position nothing ffrther done in CHIEF OF POLICE CASE \othing further has been done con- cerning the request made by the mayor for the resignation of Chief of Police (.uest.

The councilman also stated that only a majority of the council could force the resignation of an offi- cial. The matter may come up at the j meeting next Monday although it is considered likely by some that it will pass off without further action.

He made \bis statement today to the president himself while visiting in the white bouse Mid it *Jas given out as an en- dorsement of the statement of the president to account for the bad times. The president declared the diillne to be merely “psychological and the whole* country had been in- clined to laugh at him but the state- ment of Ford now rather bears out the president's, although the chances are good that Ford will also be made the butt of ridicule. He seems to think that because the people txport- ed bad times because of democrats government the bad times cam**, just as disease is said to come because one is afraid of it.

There was something do- ing all day long in Hope and it was all good. The day’s doings started in the morning by a salute of twenty- one guns, each gun consisting ol three sticks of giant lashed together. After the salute there was a parade of all male residents of the camp to the Seiffert headquarters, and then the day’s sports began. Horse races, loot races, boat races, and all kinds of ath- letic contests and a big dinner in which the entire camp joined under one roof. , The feature of the day’s celebration however was the baseball game be- tween a picked team Irom the Gus Seiffert forces and a select aggrega- tion from the Matthieson Mining company. There was a corps of um- pires and referees and when the smoke cleared away after nine des- perate innings the score stood thir- teen to four in favor of the Nome ag- gregation and there was gloom in th* camp of the Home Guards. The da\ s sports were brought to a fitting close by a grand ball at the town hall and speeches and songs. , T, “Sport” Smith and b rank Burley, the Seiffert song and dance artists, put on their little sketch, The Rummv and the Roughnek and made the hit of the evening’s entertain- ment, and Mr. Burley’s rendition of the latest outside success, Youve Made Me What I Am Today estab- lished a new mark in vocal efforts in Hope. The dance lasted until well in- to the fifth and now Hope is so well pleased with the showing that they are planning on having another b.g celebration on Labor Day.

BIG POLITICAL BATTLE BEGINS first shot delkoate elec- tion I'H.HT WILL HE I'lREi) TONKiHT HY THE DEMO- CRATS OF SEWARD The first shot in the battle for elec- , tion of delegate to congress will prob- ably be fired tonight when the local Democrats meet to select nominees for election as delegates to the territorial convention which will be held in Skagway in August. The election ot the delegates will take place at the primaries which must be held here on or before July IS. The chief subject for contention at the meeting tonight will arise from the expressed desire of some mem- bers of the local club to endorse the candidature of Delegate Wickersham. | Feeling on this matter is said to run high so that the meeting should be an interesting one. Some of the regu- lars declare that what they call the ; Frame Democrats will make an at- ! tempt to capture the meeting and la- i ter to select their men as delegates to the convention.
