Nome, Alaska. Charges have lately
been made against some of the Federal
officials of Alaska regarding s.une min
ing claims, or cases iu which individual
rights clashed with corporation inter
ests. These charges were investigated
by the Ass't Att'y Geueral, who went
to Alaska for that purpose, and though
their nature has not been made pnblic,
the President ha* ordered the removal
of Judge Brown of the Juneau district,
and of U. 8. Marshall Richards of the
Nome district. It was reported, also,
that Judge Moore had been asked to
resign, but that turned out to be un
true; and people here, who know him,
would hesitate to believe him capable
of any crooked work.

JUST A WORD.
When I was in New York and other
Eastern cities this fall I purchased the
handsomest line of Holiday goods I
have ever had, consisting of Hand
painted China, Gold Vases, Imperial
Bronze Statuary, Gold Clocks, Toilet
Sets, etc., in addition to the latest
pieces of Jewelry. Most of these goods
are already in and it is not one bit too
early to buy for Xmas and if you call
and like any you can have them laid
aside until wanted. The early customers
get the best selection and I am already
selling Xmas goods.
