I shall certainly resign after a
short time, in case I am confirmed,
if these accounts are not paid.
Its enough to give my time and strength
to the support and establishment of
law and justice in Alaska without
paying my own expenses while doing
"FIRE AT FAIRBANKS, ALASKA.
Business Section Wiped Out - Food
Supply in Jeopardy.
SEATTLE, Wash., May 23.-A dispatch
to the Post Intelligencer says that the en-
tire business section of the town of Fair-
banks, Alaska, was destroyed by fire which
started in the Fairbanks building, a three-
story frame structure, yesterday. Details
of the disaster are meager, but it is feared
that the food supply of the town has been
destroyed and great suffering may result.
Nothing was left standing in the section
lying between the water front and 3d ave-
nue, and Stacey and Turner streets. The
work of the fire fighters was centered in the
block of warehouses owned by the Northern
Commercial Company, in order to protect
the food supply of the town, and the result
is still in doubt.
The loss is estimated at a million dollars,
and it is announced that the heavier busi-
ness interests of the town are already plan-
ning to rebuild. No lives were lost."
This means that the Apple building
- Mrs. Cards restaurant & Miss .
building as well as the News building
all of which I own - are burned -
and that my rents of $400 a mo.
are cut off. Well, let the tail go
