COURTSHIP IM ALASKA, v
Clrramitanm Thkt romblnad to Mak4)
Mr. Warnkm'4 Marrlac a Fall are.
John AVarnken Is a bold mariner
and fisherman who, during the past
seven mo nth a, has b?en engned at a
fishing station in Alaska, but is now on
the briny ocean as a coasting seaman.
There L a heavy burden on John's
heart and mind, and it will require a
great deal of patience before he re
lieves himself of the weight. This
burden is no less than a separation
from his lady love in far-off Alaska.
Fortwo years past AVarnken, or, as he
is termed, "Mokel-plated Johnny."
has been hopelessly smitten with the
charms of the young daughter of an
old half-breed Aleut rejoicing In the
r.amo of SlelekotT. Nightly he would
venture on a frail boat across the
raging waters of the river to visit his
lady-love, but beyond the signs that the
lovers are to greet their inamoratas
with, neither he nor she were able to
converse with one another unless by
the aid of an interpreter.
Matters, however, culminated in a
proposal of marriage during August
last. The proposition was accepted,
and it was arranged that the wedding
should take place when the Russian
priest visited the village. The eccle
siastic arrived, but Johnny co-laborers
were grievously disappointed, and
Johnny himself saw his visions of bliss
fading when the priest refused to marry
him until he could procure some docu
mentary evidence to prove that he had
no wife living. His hopes thus dashed
to the ground, he moped and pondered
so seriously that his condition, both
mentally and physically became alarm
ing. When Bishop Validmir visited
Alaska, Warnken applied to him for
permission to marry his dear Marc la,
but again he met with a refusal. With
a determination worthy of a better
cause, he resolved to endeavor to marry
his lady-love under the laws of the
United States. He stated to the father
that by getting her to Kadjak he
thought to enlist the services of the
school teacher, who Is an ordained min
ister and also acts under a dispensa
tion from trovernor Swineiord. as a
justice of the peace. With many em
braces and vows of eternal lovo ex
changed In a pantomimic manner,
Johnny and his fair Marcia bid adieu.
When the vessel returned to the fish
ery a letter was received from the fickle
mariner stating that "as he could not
obtain work in Kadjak for the winter
his dear Marcia must wait for him till
next year. Meanwhile he would save
his money and work hard this winter
so as to marry her in the coming sum'
mer. This letter was written in Rus
sian to the girl's father and evoked
considerable wrath on the head of the
departed swain. When tho last vessel
left the fishing station there were ra
mors that the fair Marcia had trans
ferred her affections to a friend of
Johnny's, who remains at tho station
during the present winter. It may be
tated that the Russian priests and
Bishop Vladimir view with great dis
like the marriage of any Aleut or Creole
woman to an American. Cor. Chi
