Slavery in Alaska.
Acting on information contained in
a letter from William A. Davis, prin
cipal of tbe public schools of Unalas
ka, charging that slavery is still prac
ticed in parts uf Alaska, Secretary
Hitchcock has requestsd the Depart
ment of Justice, through its agents, to
make an investigation and see if steps
can be taken to stop this practioe. In
bis letter Mr. Davis asserts that there
are in Unalaska a number of pitiful,
forlorn little Eskimo girls held in bon
dage. They are said to bj -the slaves

drudge«, deprived uf association with
free children, and forbidden educa
These children are poor orphans,
whose means of support has been tak

families, uot for ordinary service like
working girls in other parts of the
country, but as common slaves. They
have no playmates, ¿nd do not enjoy
any of the privileges or delights of
childhood. From tbe slave child they
grow into the slave women, and no
matter what tbe finer feelings of tbe
child may be, she must put them
awav and pay for her orphanage and
her poverty at me coat of her health
and all hope of happiness or relief
from her life of drudgery.

Scott’s Emulsion is the mod

the consumptive. Pork is too
rough for sensitive stomachs.
Scott’s Emulsion is the most
refined of fats, especially
prepared for easy digestion.
Feeding him fat in this
way, which is often the only
way, is half the battle, but
Scott’s Emulsion does more
than that. There is some
