he have anything to say about it - its none
of your business - I resent your action".
I demanded that Heilig go at once and
get me a copy of his telegram which he
did, and I presented it to Mountjoy to
read - it was as follows.
"Valdez, Oct. 31, 1904.
John L. Long, Deputy, Fairbanks, Alaska.
With your first report you sent declaration
of intention of Day and Lyden. Where have you
accounted for the fees. Mountjoy arrived
yesterday. He contends there is no authority
in law for appointment of license inspector.
Do not pay Spring salary until advised by
me. Official business. A. R. Heilig
