Charles Harper Alive Again  - It is with great pleasure that the Banner is able to announce that Chas. Harper is still in the land of the living.  As Mark Twain says, the report of his death was greatly exaggerated. It was V.B. Butcher on J. S. Shultz's place who died and Madam Rumor got her report mixed up.  All of us have to die soon enough anyway and the Banner regrets having caused the premature death of Mr. Harper. Said gentleman is up and about now, just a fraction pale yet.

The Alaska Exposition

Seattle, Wash    April 30

Seattle is the first city to count its climate, its mountains, lakes, fishing, and hunting as regular exhibits in an exposition, but that is what it is doing in the case of the Alaska – Yukon- Pacific Exposition which opens on June 1. The best black bass fishing in the state is to be had in Lake Washington, upon the banks of which the exposition has been builded. It is possible to take a canoe from the exposition dock and within two hours bring in a creel of black bass and lake trout weighing from a half pound to three.  Or one may go on Lake Union, which makes another line of the fair grounds, and catch crappie or green bass as long as he cares to sit in a boat and pull them out. *
