"The re-nomination of I Ion. W. H. West
over and Hon. J. J. Harrington for judges
of the district court of the Fifteenth ju
dicial district is a merited recognition of
deserving men. Both of those judges are
faithful, able and impartial interpreters of
the law. Their policy on the bench has
been to dispose of business in such a way
that litigants have their cases tried without
unnecessary delay. It has been their con
stant aim to deal fairly between all persons.
The rights of the humblest citizen have
boan carefully guarded. No favors have
been shown to any powerful interest.
Neither of tlieus men are controlled by any
corporate interest There Is no question
about their integrity. There is no litigant
or attorney in the Fifteenth Judicial dis
trict can truthfully say aught against the
conduct of these men. They have been
all that just judges should be. All litigants
have had an opportunity to be fully and
fnirly heard. All cases have received care
ful and conscientious attention. Their de
cisions have been based on honest con
victions. No perbou acquainted with the
workings of our court believes otherwise.
They have not held cases under advise

in this district. The law of private ven

I year. Vigilance committees were numer

cattle thieves were at work. Right here
in Jioit county nunureus ot cattle were
stolen every year. Since these judges have
been on the bench the laws of the state
have been enforced. As a result the man
with the rope; the man with the branding
iron; the man with the mask have disap
peared. We hear no more of lynching,
cattle rustlers and "Gulch boys." The

NEWS FROM THE FAR NORTH.
An Interesting Letter Received from
a Former Alliance Citizen.
The following letter was received by
Mrs. Snow from her son, C. K., who
is now in the far north, and its contents
will prove interesting not only to the
family but also to others interested in
news from Uncle Sam's possessions in
the land of perpetual snow.
Nome, Alaska, Julyi2, 1903.
We saw the ice fields four days ago,
so you see this is a very late season.
Today there is a cold rain but the rain
is good for mining. That was a bad
fire we had as you will see by the
paper I send but the town has been
very lucky this winter. I send you
papers nearly every week so you must
be weli informed aout the work of
the camp. As for C. K., ho is the
same as usual. . I don't see how I can
say anything more along that line. As
I must be out early in the morning I
think I will retire. It is 10 o'clock p.
m. and broad daylight.
As I have no news to write I just
wrote you about how it scorns when
the mail comes in about Christmas,
Wo recofved our last outside mail by
boat on October 25, and three weeks
later the last boat in the Roadsted
heaved anchor and with a farewell
blast, that was echoed and reechoed
from the surrounding hills (which were
already robed in their winter's mantle),
slje slowly steamed southward. The
many whistles of Nome bade her
"Godspeed" with all their might, which
was taken up by those nearest town
and carried on and on up the
creeks, over the divides and down the
gulches, each whistle announcing to
its little group of miners that the last
boat of the season was leaving.
Thousands of hearts beat farewell in
that slow, heavy manner peculiar to
hearts at such times, and many an in
voluntary sigh could bo heard that day
as we stood on the beach. I watched
that speck in the distance with its long
trail of black smoke like the breath of
sme living thing, as it seemed to creep
farther and farther away.
As the crowd on the beach grew less
and less aud the last handful of stragg
lers slowly went their way, each one
felt that the connecting link wa9 broken,

that wc were isolated from the rost of the
world and it would be months before
we would hear from the great "outside."
The days rolled on and all things took
their natural course.
We lived in a little world of our own.
As holidays drew near the impatience
to hear from our loved ones seemed to
be revived by the memory of bygone
days. One can find groups of men
and women in the parlor, business meuat
the office and little squads in the sa
loons, all discussing that one theme
which was uppermost in the minds of
all, "when will the mail come in."
Well wc knew that the faithful dog
teams and hardy carriers were shorten
ing that long stretch of 2,000 miles
down the mighty Yukon and up the
Behriifg coast, which lay between us
and those coveted letters so dear to us
but so worthless to another.
New Year came rnd- with it vague
rumors of mail; which grew daily aud
varied greatly. No one' seems able to
tell from whence the rumors came, but
all in hopes they were true. Finally,
on the 16th of January the entire town
was animated to hear that the mail had
reached the long telephone line only
125 milos away and would be in Nome
in two days, if thqruworo no blizzards.
All the "Sourdoughs" and seamou as
well as many "Chuchalkoes" took ob
servations aud passed their opinion as
to the weather for tlic next 48 hours.
Evoryone visited ovoryonc qlse that
eve'uing. The saloons and gambling
houses wore crowded. Many con
jectures were made as to the tidings of
the first mail, now so near at hand.

happy land to the southwaul. As the
mail carriqr reported at the telephones
of the various road houses along the
trail it was sure that he was making
good time and his dops wore holding
out well. The climax was reached
however when ho 'phoned that he
would arrive in Nome by noon Sun
day, several hours earlier than was ex
pected. The tide of discussion now
was whether or not ho coul;l make that
time. Many, a yarn was retold con
cerning fast do teams to show that it
was impossible, and there were many
to praise the qualities of the carrier as
a capital musher who understood dog-
ology in every phase. The time drew
near, and in he comes making his word
good and swinging his loug line of tired
dogs, with their precious load, up to
the postoffice at 7 o'clock, five hours
ahead of time. He, had traveled all
night, making excellent time on his
section of the 2,000 miles, as had each
carrier on that long route, considering
the poor trail of early" winter and the
short days of December, when the sun
only peeps over the edge long enough
to say "Good morning" aud then re
tires for the long cold night.
The postmaster and eleiks wore

stamps. The long lo6ked for music, to

ing some foreign language, and no one
mado any effort to answer. Still the
crowd grew and still the stamp sound
ed. Some of the patrons were forced
to leave the line from cold but most of
them stood bravely by. The few who
had lock-boxes were nervously locking
and unlocking them, slamming them
each time as though there was danger
of the mail breaking out. Suddenly
there was a low murmur. . The stamp
stopped and each one jostled his neigh

for their cabins or some other more
comfortable place. Some hesitated as

their letters to open them and Irani
what message of joy or sorrow they
bore, and there were those who turned
away empty handed, often with a faint
smile and a light romar,. but the ery
picture of disappointment nevertheless.
