SOME OMAHA IGNORANCE Seattle Paper Enlightens a Carper at Alaska The Seattle Trade Register talus this fall out of a Middle West paper: “The Omaha Trade Exhibit exposes woeful ignorance respecting Alaska when it says: ‘The gold output of Alaska is estimated hr the current year at KU)0(\0<)0. not a v« y large figure when the cost of getting *ho metal is taken into consideration, and when the further fact that goldisabout the only product oi the hleaK northern territory is considered. The expense of living and the cost ot production will certainly more than consume all of the gold produced this year, it we are to believe the stories which come to us.’ It would be just as correct to say that Omaha is nothing hut a hog pen and immeasurable filthy, because it has a hog market. Alaska's tish out put annually exceeds $20,000,000 in value: it has untold value in copper coal, oil, marble and other products, has large and rich agricultural areas and many sections with abetter climate than many other sections ol the l nited States. The above quotation is the worst of misrepresentation.' Harold Walby, who has been with the railroad company several months, will L’o to Seattle on the Santa Clara.
