On the 19th I sent a
telegram to Gov. Hoggatt, Wash. D. C.
asking for information about Judge
Reid & where he would be here. Recd.
ans. today saying he was in Seattle
on his way to Valdes. Banking
matters are settled down - the 1st Nat
& W-A. are on a clearing house
basis of repudiation and the
Fairbanks Bk. will go on the same
basis on Monday. This scheme
is a practical repudiation of all
their debts until after the clean
=up in the spring and summer.
- but its even then better than a
receiver and 5% on the dollar!
The newspaper blackguardism has
also quieted down - the weather
is fine & it's a good time to rest.
