SEWARD PEOPLE j
MAKING HOMES SEVERAL HAVE LEASED THE GROUND NEAR RAILROAD AROl’SD THE LAKE. — Under the new regulations which were explained in the Gateway oi several months ago quite a few local people have taken leases on govern ment property around Kenai Lake and along the railroad near the lake. It is not generally known, however, that the forestry authorities last summer went over the ground and surveyed off the holdings of the peo ple who had taken up ground under leases in the forest reserve. After this survey some of the people who had taken five acres, the amount al lowed by the law. have had their holdings cut down. A1 Roberts, for instance, who had live acres where the creek crosses the railroad on its way to the lake near Mile 211 has had his holding cut from five acres to a tract which is only one hundred feet by two hundred feet. A few* others in the same neighborhood also had the size of their tracts cut down and W. A. McNeilley *was the first man to get the full five acres. The others were eut dow n because they had .aken up ground on the creek and too close to the railroad, it is said. Mr. McNeilley*s five acres is seven hun dred feet deep with three hundred , feet on the railroad. On the lake the forest people also reserved the usual sixty feet along the water front. Harney Flaherty, who had quite a big .-act, ha»l most of it taken from him. even his garden which he had culti ated, because he had failed to file on • t before the district was reserved. He had taken it up before the new regulations giving leases of five acres had gone into etTeet. Some Seward j people who have taken up tracts are Wayne Blue, Helenius, who had the contract to clear the Terminal tract, EMPRESS THEATRE NEW A. B. HALL Tuesday, Nov. 23 rd 8:15 P.

BALLAINE In its issue of November 17 the Cordova Times takes a whack at our j dear old friend Major John E. Bal laine. It hints that John has subsi- j dized a newspaper, or something, and j that he has been able to publish articles about a conspiracy hatched by the Guggs and others. The Cor dova paper says a certain article, “which emanated from John E. Hal-j laine and the veriest kind of rot.” The Times finishes up by declaring that ninety per cent of the Cordova 'people do not want the government to buy the Copper River Railroad. All they want, it says, is that the government open up the resources back of Cordova. 'John Rallaine, of Seward, has again burst forth in print to air an imagi nary plot to a great scheme afoot to discredit the work of the Alaska En gineering Commission and the further construction of a government railroad from the westward. John has these “pipe dreams” periodically and he is not taken very seriously by those who know him well.—Cordova Times.
