On May 22, 1906, Fairbanks was ravaged by a fire that destroyed most of the buildings. The same year, Barnette was brought to court by James H.
, Barnette's backer from 1901. Barnette had not honored his promise to share a third of profits from the venture which in five years had made him a wealthy man. Before the Washington State Supreme Court,
demanded a half of the assets Barnette had accumulated since the time of Causten's investment. Barnette protested that

The "Fairbanks Daily Times" (which had only begun publishing a daily edition that year) ran a banner headline: "EX-CONVICT". On June 26, 1908 the court ruled in favor of

In January 1879, the firm was founded in New York City as Browne & Witter through the partnership of
Browne and William C. Witter. Soon thereafter, the firm was renamed Browne, Witter and Kenyon after William H. Kenyon joined the partnership. In 1899, the firm changed its name to Kenyon & Kenyon. That same year, Kenyon became one of the first law firms to hire a female attorney.
Barnette and Smith used the $6,000 from
to hire Charles Adams, captain of the 150 foot sternwheeler, the "Lavelle Young". Captain Adams agreed to carry the E.T. and Isabelle Barnette, Charles Smith, their employees and their cargo to the head of navigation of the Tanana River, at least as far as the Chena Slough. This was 200 miles short of Tanana Crossing, where Captain William R. Abercrombie had just completed the U.S. Army's trail between Valdez and Eagle. The construction of the Valdez-Eagle Trail seemed to confirm Healy's vision of the "All-American Route" to the Klondike. But it was late in the year, when Alaska's glacier-fed rivers run shallow, and Adams doubted that the heavily-laden steamer could make it that far.
In 1901, Barnette partnered with Charles Smith, an acquaintance from Circle, arranging for $20,000 in supplies to be shipped from San Francisco, California to St. Michael. Back in Circle, he purchased the 124 foot steamer "Arctic Boy", steaming down the Yukon to meet the cargo with the intention of carrying it back up the river to establish the trading post. At St. Michael, the "Arctic Boy" was loaded with 130 tons of merchandise, but the steamer ran aground before reaching the mouth of the Yukon and had to be beached in order to save the cargo. Having no other means to transport the merchandise further, Barnette and Smith sold it to local entrepreneurs, only to repurchase it when customs officer James H.
invested $6,000 in the enterprise in return for a third share of profits.
