To ward oil' nil possible opposition, as before stated, tin* John Jrving Navigation Co.  secured tho two wharves, Atliu possesses.  They also, or their agents, secured every  ! avenue that led from the water hack, witli  perhaps one exception. The udveut of the  Kutli ou Atliii Lake uud .their having to  land passengers on a boom of logs near the  sawmill does uot redound to the ciedit of  tlie John Irving Navigation Co.  The company has been advertised as the  ovv ners of the tramway operating across tlie  portage from Taku, but this is questionable, since the company has failed to comply witli tlie requirements, of the contract.

Women are practically barred out of tho  government service in the departments at  Washington.
