SEW\KI>, Al.ASK V. Tl ESI)AY, Jl Nli 1, 1915. Seward is glad to have Chairman K'des hack once again. While the peo ple of thi-, district know that Mr. Kdes and the other members of the commis sion reported to the president and the secretary of the interior strictly what they had ascertained in relation to the country and the different routes, the feeling exists that tin* names of the members of the government engineering commission must always he associated with Seward's success. In the selection of Mr. Riles to head the commission the administration was influenced only by the fact that Mr. Kdes had achieved eminence in his profession. In the selection of this route for the great trunk line the admin istration wa> undoubtedly influenced only by the impartial report of the com mission. There were tights made by other places hut Mr. Kdes, Mr. Mears, Mr. Riggs and the administration found what all the people iff this district honestly believe, and that i> that no other route offered the same advantages. All of them chose according to the facts in spite of the strong pressure brought from other quarters. And now when the chairman of the commission begins the work he does so amongst friends who want to see him so successful that his name will al ways bt* associated with the development of the great territory. The government is now preparing evidently not only to dispose of the tow nsite at Vitchorage but may also st>li the lots on the ground taken over in this city. The following interview with Vgent Christensen of the land of fice before he left Juneau for Vnchurage tells more of the intentions than anything else that has been printed: “We ha\e no regulation* or acts to go by in this matter and the members of the commission and myself will take the matter up and make recommenda tions to the department. 1 really do not know what method will be used in disponing of the lots. We may decide to hold them and lease them at a nominal rental, or we may sell them at a nominal sum with certain restric tions making the sale for the benefit of the public and not the speculators. “Then again we may sell them at auction to the hightest bidder, but I hardly think so, as that would he playing into the hands of the speculators who ha\e money to invest. “People hu\e been rushing into Ship Creek so last and settling on the reservation that they are hampering the railroad work and something must he done with them. Mr. Warner will survey the tow nsite and probably the settlers will be moved so a> not to interfere with the work. “There will probably he a tow nsite at Matanuska Junction where the branch to the coal Helds leaves the main line and we will ha>e to make the necessary surveys there, and maybe at a couple of other places up the line. Then the large tract at Seward will probably be laid out and placed on the market although we cannot tell what regulations the department will finally make in the matter.” Machinery for Prompt Shipment Machine Shop Boilers and Engines Wood Working Shop Gasoline Engines Blacksmith Machines \ir Compressors Sheet Metal Works Hoists and Pumps BOTH NEW AND USED MACHINES FERINE MACHINERY COMPANY SEATTLE NEWS FROM ALL PARTS OF THE NORTHLAND The lure of a new Alaskan camp is upon the people of Cordova.
