Ho hud lots of business on hand for awhile, but ho finally "look a tumble" and loft the town in disgust. The opera house janitor and Kate Field had a lively competition Friday evening on tho Alaska question. While Kate was considered by the audience more flowery In her treatment of the subject, the janitor was credited with greater realism. Kate hold the audience at first but tho janitor began to gain and at length received almost universal attention, even causing Kate s mind to wander occasionally.

The failure to have lire in tho opera house for Kate Field's lecture, took away any prospect of pleasure there might have been in store for the audience. Many wore unable to sit through and left tho hall, and those who remained wore so chilled that they could give only scant attention to what was said. Tho lecturer gave a graphic account of tho people of that far away land, of their hiibits of life, manners, resources, etc. In a less arctic temperature tho audience might have warmed to tho subject, but the speaker was chilled and tho people wore stiff, and altogether it was not all that was anticipated. Kate told two things which should be remembered: Alaska Is one- fifth of tho United States, and Alaskan juries take an emetic to clear their minds on entering tho jury room.
