was slightly the lowest bidder.

DIETRICH SAYS AID ALASKA
Former Senator Adrocatei OoTiromeot
Help for Railroads in Peninsula.
TRADE POSSIBLE THROUGH GOOD LINES
Says Senator Beveridce Predicts
Passaae by .est Conaress ot
Bill to Promote Develop
ment of Northwest.
Former Senator Dietrich of Hastings Is
In the city Inspecting plans of the archi
tect who Is preparing for an addition to
Hotel Bostwlck at Hastings.
Mr. Dietrich Is deeply Interested In the
development ot Alaska. Speaking on this
subject, he said:
"While I have no financial Interest In any 1
scheme for railroads In Alaska, I think,
now that the government has aided the
Philippines by guaranteeing the interest on
railroad bonds. It should, under proper re
strictions, take similar action In the mat
ter of a railroad In Alaska.
"My recent trip to that coutnry, In which
we coHsted from the southernmost point of
Icy Cape and came back by way of Siberia,
shows that the most feasible route Is from
Valdea to Eagle. The government has forts
at both places and the line could be used
as a military route aa well as for com
merce. Uy constructing a line from Valdea,
on the coast, to Eagle, on the Yukon, the
greater part of the trade of the British
Yukon would be deflected to American soli.
as well as that of the towns in United
States territory. The proposed road would
cross the Sannnah river at a point 300 miles
below the head of navigation and this
would give water communication to points
now reached by devious routes to interior
points. It will, through the Sananah, resell
the new developments at Fairbanks which
Is said to be one of the rlchent districts of
Alaska. At Eagle the road will touch the
Yukon sixty miles from Dawson. The river
there Is much deeper and stays open much
longer than the river above Dawson and
that at least two months more river traffic
can be obtained with Dawson than at
present. Skirting the Copper river the
road will tap valuable copper mines and
some paying placer gold mines. The dis
tance between Valdes and Eagle Is 4.'J feet.
The most difficult problem to solve Is that
of heavy snow at Valdea which might Inter
fere with the operation of the line in winter,
but this can be provided for.
"The bill which I introduced In congress
to aid In the development ot Alaska had
the approval of the department of the
Interior, the president and the senate com
mittee to which It was referred. Senator
Beverldge tells me that a similar bill will
be proposed by the senate at the next
POLICY GOOD TO DAY'S END
Haling; Rendered by Judge Retells
In Salt Involving- Daratloa
Judge Estelle has made a ruling that a
policy of Insurance on which the premium
Is to be paid "on or before" a certain day
holds good until the last stroke of the
midnight hour on that day.
The court's ruling was made In the case
of the Richardson Drug company against
the Prudential Insurance company. The
drug company sued to recover something
over $390 which had been paid as the yearly
premium on a 110,000 life insurance policy
held by the late James Richardson. This
premium was due to be paid pn or before
February 8 of each year. The Richardson
company paid the premium before the 8th
by check to St. Louis, and on the morning
of February 8 Mr. Richardson committed
Later the drug company sued to recover
the premium. The Insurance company en
tered a general demurrer, and It waa In
overruling this that Judge Estelle gave his
ruling as outlined.

Major George R. Cecil, Thirtieth Infan
try, Fort Crook, has been detailed to at
tend the encampment of the Nebraska Na
tional Guard at Kearney August H to 16
for the purpose of Inspection and Insiruc
tlon. The detail la made In conformity with
the nstinnal law providing for the assign
ment of regular army officers to duty with
state militia encampments, with the view
to increasing the efficiency of the mllltta.
Major General George M. Handull, now In
command of the northern military division
at St. Ixiuls, will go on the retired list Oc
tober 8 and probably will be succeeded by
Brigadier General t rank D. Baldwin, who
will reach the age of retirement in the com
ing spring. There may, however, be a hitch
In General Baldwin s appointment, as he Is
ranked by Brigadier Generals Fred D.
Grant. J. Franklin Bell and Frederick Fun
stnn. It is given out from Washington that
Generals Grant and Funston have volun
tarily relinquished their claims by relative
seniority in favor of General Baldwin In
order that the latter may reach the, rank
of major general before his retirement and
exercise the actual command of that rank
for a short while. Such being the case.
only General Bell stands between General
Baldwin and the coveted additional star
to his shoulder straps. It Is thought In
army circles that General Bell also may
courteously withdraw his claims In favor
of General Baldwin.

murder. Is the woman wlio a short time
ago wrote to Oovernor Cummins and askod
