NOW ALL MEN BY THESE PRESENTS, That I, J. M. Tanner of Juneau, Alaska, have made, constituted, and appointed, and by these pres­ents do make, constitute and appoint E. Valentine of the same place my true and lawful attorney for me and in my name, place and stead, and for any use to sell and transfer, bargain and bond, sell or lease all of my property, personal or real, in the town of Skaguay, to whom and on such terms as my said attorney may deem best, and by such instruments or means as may be agreed upon between him and any other party or parties and to prosecute action in my name if necessary.

Giving and granting unto my said attorney full power and au­thority to do and perform all and every act and thing whatsoever requisite and necessary to be done in and about the premises as fully to all intents and purposes as I might or could do if per­sonally present, with full power of substitution and revocation hereby ratifying and confirming all that my said attorney shall lawfully do or cause to be done by virtue of these presents.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF I hereunto set my hand and seal this 4th day of October, A. D. 1897.
