PAGE SIX FAIRBANKS. ALASKA, WEDNESDAY, JULY 1, 1931. DAILY NEWS-MINER OUR INTERESTS AT NATIONAL CAPITAL .. (By W. A. S.) WASHINGTON, June 15, — James M. Pearl, of Fairbanks, was a delegate to the Presbyterian general assembly, recently held at Pittsburgh. Afterwards he came to Washington to receive treatment for his eyes and last week entered the U. S. naval hospital, to be transferred to Walter Reed Hospital within a few days, when opportunity presents. He is a Spanish American war veteran. The post office department reports a number of vacancies, applications for reestablishing offices, etc., in Alaska, upon which action will soon be taken. At Valdez George Warner resigned April 1 to take s. position as deputy marshal, and placed Mrs. Owen S. Meals In charge of the office. As this is a presidential office a permanent appointment will not be made until Congress convenes, but Mrs. Meals and Geo. W. Robbing are candidates for acting postmaster. At Teller Postmaster Jack Warren resigned and moved away leaving his assistant Loretta Anderson in charge. Both she and Mrs. Edgar P. Tweet are candidates for the position. At Chomley the postmaster, Chas. E. Keil; resigned and Andrew Wigen, the only applicant, will likely be named to succeed him. Raymond A. Perry has resigned as postmaster at Punter and Charles Otteson and C. A. Wlthrow have been suggested as available successors. Owing to the death of Charles E. Perelle there is a vacancy in the office at Chic- hagof, which is being conducted by Lee Atkinson as assistant postmaster. He will likely be appointed to the vacancy. Frank Lyons, the postmaster at Nulato, recently died and the office is being cared for by Mr. .Russell, who has been recommended for postmaster, as has also Orval Jones, who is endorsed by most of the residents of that community. Postmaster Thomas H. Payne has left Taku Harbor and Cecil J. Cummings will likely succeed him as postmaster. Applications have been filed for reestablishing postoffices along the Alaska Railroad at Palmer, with J. .-W. Felton as postmaster, and at Lakeview, with Howard L. Long as Postmaster. The residents of Ugashik, south of Egegik' and west of Kan- atak, petition for the . reestablishment? of a postoffice at. Ugashik with Florence M, Hanson as postmaster. Since the railroad ceased to operate from Fairbanks to Chatanika a new Chatanika has been established about a mile distant and the people there now wish a post, office, with Joe O'Connor as postmaster. Offices are now wanted at Ferry, with Val Diebold as postmaster, at Chickaloon, with Ross Heeky as postmaster, and at Tolovana, with Henry w. Martin as postmaster. 000,000 in gold. Frank H. Waskey, now residin at DiUingham, was Alaska's firs Delegate, serving from August 14 1906, until March 3, 1907. He ha always retained .an interest in the doings of Congress and recently made a request for the bound vol umes of the Congressional Recorc during the past ten years. Nine mail sacks of these volumes were shipped to'htm the other day, and he may have to enlarge his cabta to care for them. Old timers in the North will remember Iginio Gaglione, who resided in Alaska continuously for 16 years, from 1898 to 1914, and who won fame and gold as the discoverer of Vault Creek, in the Fairbanks district. He took out his first papers in Juneau in 1896 and was made a citizen in Nome in 1901. In 1914 he returned to Italy to visit his sick and aged parents, and remained thre 1925, when he returned to the United States as a "temporary visitor," as he had sacrificed his American citizenship by his residence of over five years in the land of his birth. He has since been engaged in business in Seattle importing rare statuary and manu- acturing ceramics, aad is an active member of the chamber of commerce. But now the emigration of- Icers say that he must return to Italy. He will soon be given a hearing at Seattle and the result will be transmitted to the secre- ary of labor. If it is decided that he be deported his friends are hoping that his previous good life and splendid character will be fav- irably considered by the secretary and result in his remaining in Seattle. ELECTRIC "BRAIN" WILL SOLVE MATHEMATICAL PROBLEMS Construction of a machine which which will utilize electricity and light to solve mathematical problems that otherwise might require billions of years to complete, has been started at the University of California, says Popular Mechanics Magazine, The purpose of this electric "brain" will be to aid in the determination of factors of large numbers greater than two billion, and in other mathematical calculations. It consists of a shaft on which thirty gears of 100 teeth each are set. Meshing with the gears are thirty other gears with a varying number of teeth. Under each tooth in the second series is a small hole, and when the machine is ready for use, some of the holes are plugged and others are open. A beam of light is cast on the side of the apparatus arui then it is set in motion by means of an electric motor. The main- shaft gears all revolve at the same speed, but the gears meshing with them vary in speed. When in the course of perhaps hundreds of thousands of revolutions, one hole Matt Nieminen, Anchorage manager for Alaskan Airways, Inc., was in the East last week and truly said: "We fly in a day as far as a dog team can go in a mooth, so Alaska is the ideal country for airplanes." Mrs. Dan Sutherland and son Donald will leave in a few days for the White Mountains, New Hampshire, where they will join the former Delegate and spend the summer months there. The land office has advised Nils Andreas Olsen, of Ketchikan, that his homestead entry has been favorably considered and a patent issued.
