i VOl. | SEWARD, ALASIv \, FRIDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 0, 1908 NO. 79 _ __— ---—n TAFT HAS 316, j POSSIBLY 334; Only Official Count Can Deter m mine Result in Missouri. Next Congress Republican by 30 ——... ..— By Cable to Tbo Daily Gateway. Chicago, Nov. 0—Practically com plete returns from all the states give Taft 319 sure electorial votes, Bryan j 149. The 18 electorial votes of Mis-! souri are tlie only ones at all doubtful. Taft is ahead in the state by a few hundred, with seventy precincts to hear from. The democrats still claim the state, but returns are adding to the • Taft plurality. The missing precincts, however, can easily change the Mis-, souri vote either way. With the 18, from Missouri, Waft's total electoral vote would be 334, Only the ollicial count can determine Missouri's vote, s Colorado is for Bryan by about 3000 \ plurality, with fifty precincts from re mote counties yet to report. Nebraska and t 'olorado are the only northern states carried by Bryan. Ot the southern states, Taft carried Maryland, Deleware, West Virginia j and Oklahoma. The republicans will have at least 30 j majority in the house of representa tives of the next congress. Meet me at the Branch * —-—-i SOLDIER'S ADDITIONAL *H. A.

December 14. 1908, From Seward to Interior Access Is Mow Easy Every Day of the Year to Gold, Copper and Coal Districts, and to Timber and Agricultural Areas Embracing 15,000.000 Acres. With the Girdwood-Indian creek trail completed, Seward for the first time has an open route all the year round to every part of interior Alaska, including the Yentna district, \ aldez creek, and the Tanana country from Fairbanks to Gibbon. The trail by way of the Alaska Cen tral raiload to the end of the track at mile 52, thence by the roadbed to mile 75 at Girdwoood, has practical ly a level grade, and is so easy that it has been covered repeatedly in a single day. From Gird wood to Indian creek, 12 miles, is the waterlevel trail along the north shore of Turnagain Arm which the government has just com pleted. It follows the Alaska Central survey. Fp Indian creek over a divide of onlv 700 or 800 feet altitude, with an ascent of about 5 per cent, on the In dian creek side and a decent of less ! than l per cent, on the Eagle river: side, the route is so favorable that all who have traveled it say that one horse can haul two tons on a sled the entire distance. The 50 miles from Indian creek to Knik can be made in a day, as it has been many times by Alfred Lowell. From lvnik to Fairbanks up the Susitna valley through the Broad pass of the Alaskan range at an altitude of 2500 feet and down the Cantwell, the j distance is about 250 miles. It is only i 150 miles from Knik to Valdez creek, 100 miles to the Yentna diggings, 30 miles to the new quartz mines where | stamp mills are being installed on Willow creek, 25 miles to the Mata nuska coal tields, 15 miles to the Knik copper properties, and 200 miles by either the Kwim or the Simpson pass to the headwaters of the Kuskokwim vallev. The opening of the new route gives Central Alaska unobstructed access to the coast at Seward eve y day in the year for the first time. In the country tributary to this route are the extensive coal tields of the Matanuska, the Talkeetnn, the Chulit na, the Yentna and the Cantwell val leys, embracing a known area, accord ing to the reports of the United States Geological survey, of 45,000 square miles, and a probable area of 100,000 square miles: many ledges of copper and quartz gold, the richest placer dig gings yet discovered in Alaska, a tim ber belt embracing 15,000,000 acres of the best qualities of spruce, hemlock and birch, and agricultural and stock grazing lands in the Susitna and tribu tary valleys covering a region 125 miles east and west by 200 miles north and south The surveyed route of the Alaska Central passes midway through this great district.

Meet me at the Branch. * I Geological Report for 1908, just Issued, Says Alaska Has Supply for Centuries. By Cable to The Daily tr«teway. Washington, I). C., Nov. (j—Alfred Brooks, in his report of the geological survey of Alaska for 1903, issued today, says coal areas exist in the explored parts of Alaska covering an area of not less than 200,000 square miles. Much of the coal, he says, is oi so high a grade as to make Alaska the certain storehouse of fuel for the com merce of the Pacific ocean for centu ries to come. The report says that the great de posits of bituminous and anthracite coals of the Matanuska valley are equal to the best grades of Welsh and Pennsylvania coals, and are invaluable to the government for* consumption by ! the navy. Government survey parties working on the Alaska peninsula this summer, the report says, found good placer ! ground on Unga and neighboring is • lands, which promise important de velopments. ■ ■■ ■ ■ — ■— ■■ •* —* • " . — j SUMMONS UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
