ALASKA'S Blfi GROWTH
Rapid Development of Our
SOOH TO BE OEOSSED BY EAILWATS
All Rail CommgnicatloD From Jiew
York to I'aria la Slant Inimeiiae
Bllneral, Aarlooltnral and Foreit
Wealth to Be Developed Alaskan
Flauertea Rich Beyond Calcolallon..
Alaska being u topic of the hour,
now that the boundary decision has
been given in faVor of the United
States there Is timely interest in the
fctory told by William 11. Stewart in
the current World's Work of its won
derfully rapid development. The whole
vast stretch of the far northwest, Ca
nadian as well as American, is now
repeating the wonderfhl story of Cali
fornia's magical growth.
Within a year or two Alaska will be
traversed by railroads almost from end
to end. Nome, the western terminals
of. the railroad system of northwestern
Alaska, is already a city of 25,000 pop
ulation. The railroad tracks that run
to Nome are farthest north of all the
world. They are almost within the
arctic circle. Nome has good hotels,
daily papers, banks, electric lights, tele
graphs and telephones in short, a com
plete outfit of civilization. It is con
nected by cable with St. Michael's and
by telegraph with Dawson and Skag
uay. When the railroads now building and
projected are completed it will only
need a short northern spur from Rus
sia's great Siberian railroad to give all
rail communication from New York to
Paris. Meantime Dawson is the eiy
to which all railroad building leads.
Dawson has 12,000 population, and its
municipal equipment includes all mod
ern improvements. Its assessment for
taxation is over $11,000,000. It is now
installing a $5,000,000 water supply
The Yukon river is open to naviga
tion from May to October, and forty
stern wheel steamboats ply between
Dawson and St. Michael's, covering the
1,000 miles in about ten days.
Primarily the railroads so far have
been built to tap the enormous min
eral wealth of :Alaska and the Cana
dian Yukon. But." contrary to old no
tions, there is immense agricultural
and forest wealth to be developed in
the Hudson bay, north Saskatchewan
and Peace river districts. ' Nearly a
thousand miles north of the boundary
between Alaska and the Canadian
northwest, in the valley of the Peace
river, wheat, barley and oats are grown
in quantities limited only by the num
ber of farmers. The most northerly
roller process flour mill on the conti
nent has just been built at' Vermillion.
The wheat which took the first prize
at the Centennial exhibition of ,1S7G at
Philadelphia came from the Peace riv
er country, which is estimated to con
tain more than 15,000,000 acres of good
grain growing soil.
The postal service of this empire in
embryo is a wonder. Mail steamers
leave the Pacific coast daily, bringing
bags from Sitka, Skaguay, Nome and
other points by all manner of means
wagons, dog sleds, etc. Russian rein
deer carry the sacks over frozen lakes
and snow covered hills with remark
able rapidity. The highest salaried
postal official In the world serves in
Alaska.' He Is paid ?25,000 a year for
carrying the mail fortnightly to Fort
Yukon, providing his own dogs and
sleds for the purpose. Alaska has now
upward of 100 post offices, and mails
are collected and delivered regularly
beyond the arctic circle.
The fisheries of Alaska are rich be
yond calculation. Its cod banks are be
lieved to equal in wealth those of New
foundland. More than half of our en
tire salmon product is" Alaskan, and
last year it was worth $7,000,000, ex
actly what we paid Russia for the
The winters of Alaska are less rig
orous than those of Wyoming or Mon
tana, and horses and cattle are worked
there ' without fear of being frozen.
The cold is intense, but there are no
storms. Except on the coast of Be
ring sea all the hardy vegetables are
grown with marked success through
out Alaska and the Canadian Yukon,
south of the arctic circle.
As a measure of Alaska's growth it
la noted that her total foreign trade,
all she bought and all she sold, in
1802 was -less than $29,000 in value,
while for the fiscal year ended June
30 last it reached a total of $35,000,000.
American and British settlers are
pushing steadily north into this great
territory in about equal numbers, and
Mr. Stewart says that ."the entire
Canadian northwest is already more
American th"an British in its adminis
President Roosevelt, speaking at Seat
tie in May last,1 predicted that men
now living "would see Alaska one of
the greatest and most populous states
of the entire Union."' It may be that
it will become too great and populous
for one state or even for two. .Its
area is larger than that of eighteen of
the present states of the Union, in
cluding New York, Pennsylvania, Vir
ginia, Indiana, Louisiana and Maine.
To use another comparison, Alaska in
cludes more ''territory'' than the British
isles, France, Germany, Portugal ind
Belgium all put together.' The future
of such an imperial domain' must be
great indeed. ,
"When misty, misty' mornings come.
When wild geese low are flying
And down along the reedy marsh
The mallard drakes are crying;
"When cattle leave the highest hills
And blackbirds flock together ' -
By all these signs the hunter knows
v jlas come good minting weather.

Training Canaries to Sins by Sleaaa
of fBlrd OrBam."
King Edward's newest hobby is
training canary birds to sing. He has
had fitted up ln Windsor castle a large
aviary, to which hundreds of English
canaries have been sent in the last
tivo months, says the Chicago Tribune.
Here bird trainers from Germany are
busy Improving the voice of the Eng
lish canary by means of "bird organs"
and the suggestion found in hearing
the better voiced German canary sing.
The birds pass through a regular
course of singing lessons and take from
three to six months to "finish."
The common method of training is
to place the canaries in small cages,
each one separated from the next,
around the waifs of a square room. In
the center of the room will be placed
a "bird organ," au instrument some
thing like a large musical box, on
vyhich the "roll" is played by a man
who aits and turns the handle. Grad
ually the birds begin to copy the notes
until at last they are perfect. Another
form of "bird organ" is worked by
Water running through a series of
small pipes, and in cases where this
Is used the note acquired is called the
"water bubble note," as opposed to the
A better arrangement Is to replace
the organ with one of the exceptionally
fine singing canaries, who sings gayly
in his cage and raises such a wave of
envy In the breasts of his hearers that
they quickly strive to outdo him. The
note of the Harz mountain rollers is
quite distinctive and unlike that of
any other variety, and this bird is
being used by King Edward to train
his English canaries.

Why Jonrph M. Bottomley Left Ches

Mr. and Mrs. Joseph M. Bottomley,
ardent disciples of John Alexander
Dowie, leader of the restoration host,
now in New York, recently left Ches
ter, Pa., for Zion City, where they will
make their future home, says the Phil
Mr. Bottomley, who is blind and
helpless, in an interview said:
"Yes. we are going back to ion, a
place people generally have a mistaken
idea about. We first went to Zion City
when building lots were offered for
sale. When I first went there I was
in bad shape indeed. All the doctors
told me before going west that I could
not live, and, in fact. I wanted to die.
I had to be fed and handled like a
child. Today my general health is as
good as It ever was. I eat and sleep
well and have not an ache or pain.
This favorable change I attribute to
prayer and the doctrine of Dr. Dowie.
I hope to have the full use of my lower
limbs in time and have every Veason to
believe that my lost sight will return."

There also is a collection of modern

CHAMBERLAIN AT HOME
Private Life of England's For
mer Colonial Secretary.
SIMPLICITY IS ITS KEYNOTE.
He Cares Little or Kothlnff For Show.
How He Lives at Home Amid His
Famous Flower Beds Talces Little
Exercise, nn " Hour's Ciardenlnjc
Enough-HIi Slethod of Preparing
In the hubbub of invective and
calumny, amid, a "perpetual hail of
pamphlets and leaflets and newspaper
articles, Joseph Chamberlain, England's
former colonial secretary, reassures his
followers by his very air of complete
indifference to the storm raging around
him, and when the uproar is at its
worst he calmly lays out a new garden
bed, says the London Mail.
Mr. Chamberlain's home is at Iligh
bury, a large, well to do house in the
residential quarter of Birmingham. Be
hind the gates a spacious garden rises
somewhat steeply to an invisible house,
and through this garden winds the
drive. Here are the famous flower beds
which occupy Mr. Chamberlain's lei
sure and banish the burdens of im
The house itself externally is large,
modern and undistinguished. Stand
ing under the glass portico at its door,
the visitor is confronted by a whole
series of doors, which open one behind
the other. Through them he passes to
a large hall, paneled with light wood,
surrounded by a gallery, with a great
fire burning in the hearth and a bear
skin rug before it. The magazines and
papers lio neatly arranged.
The hall is lighted by a chandelier of
electric lights, and around it are vases,
rugs'and rare embroideries from the
east. It is pervaded by an air of sim
plicity, which is the keynote in Mr.
Chamberlain's public and private life.
Like most really great men, he cares
little or nothing for show.
Ills life on the eve of his recent Glas
gow speech was very . trying on him,
notwithstanding his appearance of
calm. In the first place, the uivre
physical strain is1 excessive, and only a
man in the robustest of health and the
very pink of condition could accom
plish what he does. His years are sixty-seven,
but he is so young, so alert
and so vigorous that he might be taken
for his own sqn.
Mr. Chamberlain rises late in the
morning, for the minister in the house
of commons must habituate himself to
late hours. His most serious business
is the management of his correspond
ence, which shows a tendency to out
grow all manageable bounds. He re
ceives as a rule over 200 letters a day
and not only reads them all and an
swers them, but perforce has to an
swer them with the extremest ' care.
They may contain riddles asked by
faithful followers or traps laid by art
ful opponents. The statesman has to
be always on his guard.
Two shorthand clerks take down the
instructions for the answers under the
supervision of Mr. Chamberlain's pri
vate secretary. But even so, with all
possible assistance, ihis routine work
takes many hours. While the letters
are In hand there is a perpetual stream
of telegrams In cipher from ministers
or au clair from less distinguished
men. not less troublesome than the
letters and often requiring even great
er tact and care in handling.
Nor is this all. At such time as the
present, on the eve of a great and his
toric speech, correspondents beset the
house in their efforts to discover its
secrets. Mr. Chamberlain has the rep
utation of treating them exceedingly
well. He never if he can helfl it sends
them empty away and is ready to talk
with them at any time. Even at this
moment, when his mind is full of.what
he is going to say and what he is go
ing to leave unsaid, be is not Inaccessi
ble. He works far Into the night, f He
takes a bath before dinner, dines at 8
in the simplest fashion with bis fam
ily and after dinner sets to work. On
the Saturday before ' his recent Glas
gow speech he was at work until 3 in
the morning answering his correspond
ents and preparing his speech. One
or two days of late when he has not
felt fit he has taken matters a little
more easily, but his is a strenuous life.
Of exercise he needs and wants little.
An hour's gardening is enough. '
In the preparation of his speech hel
uses run notes, ms racts are worked
ut with extreme care.. For the pres
ent controversy he has had the most
careful calculations made by the most
accomplished authorities. He tries his
speeches over before delivery, declaim
ing them to his secretary while smok
ing a brier pipe. In his large library
he has two libraries at Highburya
listener might have heard the things
which were flashed all over the world
from Glasgow. ,
In his political work he receives great
assistance from his son, the new chan
cellor of the exchequer, who inherits
his eyeglass, his aptitude for politics
and his judgment. Austin Chamber
lain lives with him at Highbury and
assists id the management of the ever
growing correspondence. Mrs. Cham
berlain takes the warmest Interest in
all that her hubsand attempts, and her
grace and tact are never at fault. The
happy family life which the younger
Pitt lacked and the want of which,
perhaps, explains certain weaknesses
In him that are not to be found in Mr.
Chamberlain is here.
Constant Inquiries are made by Mr.
Chamberlain's friends and Sympathiz
ers as to their leader's health. With
absolute truth it can.be said that it
was never better. He seems to grow
younger, not older, as the years, go by.
