Cliance9 Not Bright for Sub
port tit Tanau*
The chances for the establishment of
a Subport of entry at Fairbanks are
not good. Wa ter K Clark, the Post
Intelligencer's Washington city cor
respondent says on the subject in the
Post-Intelligencer: ^
A report reached the treasury de
partment today that the White Pass &
Yukon rai road was about to ask the
department to establssh one or more
ports of entry in the Tan an* region in
Alaska, so thv foreign vessels might
be enabled to carry on commerce with
the new mining towns there.
At pre* 'nt there is no regularly
constituted 'subport of entry in the
Tanana country, and it is probable that
there will be none in the near future,
if at all. Foreign steamers are, there
fore, not allowed to land passengers or
cargoes, and the business is restricted
to American* The same situation ex
isted at Nome until two years ago, de
spite the iTort of Canadian commercial
interests to have a subport es.ablished
there. A custom^ officer was stationed
at Nome, but the establishment of a
subport was deferred for some time.
The change has male little difference
with the trade of Nome: all the ship
ments. practically, both to and from
that pluc ', are handled by American
steamship owners. It is possib'e that
a subport mav be established some time
at Fairbanks on the Tanaoa. but such
a step is not even in contemplation at
