MOTHERS BARTER THEIR DAUGHTERS. Congress Will Be Requested to Put a Stop to Shocking Traffic in Far North. Tacoma, Wash. —Selling girls* for a financial consideration before they are hardly old enough to don long skirts is the traffic engaged in by mothers in Alaska. The laws governing that territory are powerless to stop the infamous enterprise or punish the persons engaging in it. This is the story told by Mrs. C. R. Reynolds, who has spent many years in Juneau, Sitka and Douglas. She says the unnatural mothers belong to all nationalities, but that the practice is carried on to a greater extent among the Russians than any other class. So alarming has the condition become, according to Mrs. Reynolds, that she decided to consult officers of the Washington Children’s Home Society, the head of the State Board of Charities and other persons engaged in religious work. In response to her representations L. J. Covington put the matter before the trustees of the Washington Children’s Home ...

Maretti, the. defeated candidate for trustee of the Guadalupe school district, has taken legal steps to contest the election. The complaint is made against A. V. Wooley, his successful opponent. The sailors and their officers are being given the time of their lives in Los Angeles and all reports say the naval visitors are the best behaved lot of marines that ever stepped ashore with a jingle. No salt goes with this story, which is a paradox. Wonderful reports come from Santa Barbara about the glorious rain Lompoc received. A. reporter on the Indepeneent sniffed of the gale and then drew on his imagination for a column write-up on the rain and consequent prospects. Why, we didn’t have enough wet to dampen Father Time’s whiskers! ...
