Capital Stock of the Company is $30,000,000. Chicago, tion has contracts June 27. Official eonfirma- been Riven the report that have been let for the con of the Alaska Central road. struetion The contractors are the Seward Con struction company of Chicago, the gen eral manager of which is John Dowie. Under the terms of the contract the first 2T miles of road is to be completed the niesent year, and the remainder next year. It is, claimed the road will be a paying enterprise after the com pletion of the first 23 miles of road. The Alaska Central railway company is organized under the laws of the state of Washington to construct a standard gauge road from the Pacific coast at Resurrection bay northward to the Ta- nana liver, 150 miles above its junction iw-ith the Yukon. The length of the j trunk, line will be 4VA miles. ' Pireotors of the comnany are: G. W. jPickinson, tormerly general manages j of the Northern Pacilic; F. August lieinze of Montana copper fame; Sen iator (e-orge Turner; E. K.

The company is capitalized for 130.- ! ini'i.iM f. cunsistmc of nrirt.Oui) shares ; common stock and Do, OHO shares of 5 I per cent, preferred stock, all of the par value of $r,0 a share. In addition $3,000, .Onii first mortgage 5 per cent. 30-year gold bonds base been issued, redeem 'alile after April 1, 1-MiS, at 105. It is claim i'l that all arrangements for the tinariciu.g of the company have been 'completed, the securities having beeri . underwritten by a large New York trust company, i Construction work will be begun im ; mevliately. the route having been sur j vr'ed and the survey accepted by the ! 1 uited States governmeijt. The com- Tiaay has secured a 200 foot right of way j and town sites every ten miles. The 1 route presents no engineering diffieul- tics. There are two slant stretches ag gregating six miles of 2 per cent grade. itie rest ot tne grade is light. The southern terminus of the road is at Seward, on Resurrection llay, and the northern terminus is in the center of the Tti nana gold fields, which are said by the officials to be the richest anil most extensive in Alaska. The entire route is said to be rich in timber of merchantable size and abounds in coal of good steaming quality. Resides cop per, gold, platinum and petroleum are said to abound tn great quantities and the entire territory offers agricultural possibilities equal to those of ilichigun, Minnesota or Iowa. A financial statement issued by the finance committee of the company savs . 1 that on a conservative estimate the road win carry ,,ii.'.ino through passengers the I first y ar and that the income from this should he $:!,OiiO.O00 a, year at the Freight earnings for the first source outset year are estimated at 000.000.

Its financial office is in Chicago. RAILWAY BUILDING. Record for Past Six Months Some what Disappointing. Railway building in the Vnited States has not progressed as rapidly during the first six months of lHO.'i as had been ex pected, says the Railway Age. The un rest in ihe labor world, due to the epi demic of strikes, and the high prices of track material have caused the post ponemont of much important work, and the difficulty of securing rails has con tinued, making it impossible to lay track as fast as the- roadway was completed. The more important lines which were started last year or earlier are being pushed to completion as rapidly as con ditions will permit, but other new pro- ; jeet s are making slower progress. ' The new' mileage completed during the ! first half of liJ2 amounted to 2,314 j miles, and the total for the entire 12 j months of that year aggregated 5.6S4 j mill s. It has been confidently expected j that the track laid in line? would exceed n.iNiO miles, but tlie figures for the first six months do not make it certain that i such a result will be attained. Our re turns for the six months are not en- ; tircly complete, but it is believed that the reports yet to be receive'! will not ise the present figures, M mills of track laid to June HO. 1!(V5, on 173 and ten itoi ies. j materially merr I which show 2.'. from January 1 1 lini s in 2S state These figure's are exclusive of many private and logging roads built for tem porary use. and do not include any of the numerous interurban electric lines that have lean built in many states, serae of which conteanplate doing a light freight as well as passenger business. Ther e are 11 states w hie h have e om ph ted no new road, as follows: New ITampshire, Wrmnnt, Rhcule Islan 1, ( 'onriect ii-ut. New Jersey. Delaware, Maryland, Nebraska. South Dakota. Wyoming and Nevada. The eastern states mentioned will add very little if .any new track this year, but in South Dakota. Wyoming and Nevada leiv lines are under e'onstruction, and in Ne vada tiaeklaying is just beginning on the San Pedro. Lis Angeb s & Salt Lake ILL t 041;. A weak stomach is the cause of all sickness.

HOSTETTEB'S STOMACH BITTERS to Daggett, : Cat., nearly 200 miles, Oklanoma leads ail other states and territories with 240 miles to her credit, I land lexas is second with 205 miles, ! which is 21 miles less than the figures j of that state for the first six months of 11102. Indian Territory stands third with 1 20o miles; .New Mexico fourth with 132 j mih-s; Pennsylvania fifth with 12S i miles; Iowa sixth with 117 miles; Utah seventh with 10s miles, and Arkansas eighth with 103 miles. ' These are the only states and territories showing over loo miles each. The larga r portion of the new work is located in the south and southwest, although there is con siderable activity in the Pacific states, where 2o'J miles of new line have been completed since January 1. Nineteen states west of the M ississippi river show additions aggregating 1.4b5 miles, of which b56 n dies have been built in eigiit southwestern states, "while the 10 stops south of the Ohio and east of the Mis sissippi have completed 3'j2 miles. Among the large systems whicri have laid track on important extensions this year are the St. Rouis & San Francisco, 2"6 miles: Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe, 120 miles; Chicago. Milwaukee Sc St. Paul, miles; Missouri Pacific, 75 miles: Chicago. Rock Island & Pacific, including the Choctaw, Oklahoma & Gulf, 62 miles. The Rock Island, which has many new lines planned., has ex panded by absorption rather than by construction and on account of the ac quisitions made in the pest few months the construction of much projected mileage will not be necessary. Although the track laid this year is less than that shown for the first half of 1902, traeklaying is just beginning on several prominent lines, including the Denver. Northwestern & Pacific. the San Pedro. Ros Angeles & Salt Lake and the Mobile, Jackson & Kansas City, all of which promise to make ex tensive additions before January 1. The Misr-ouri Pacific and the Kansas City, Mexico & Orient have much grade com pleted in addition to that on which track has been laid and will push the work of tracklaying during the last half of the year. in short, the mileage of road wav made ready for the rails exceeds the length of track laid by many hun dreds of miles. TELEGRAPHERS dtTIT WORK. Ten Rock Island Employes at Tren ton Walk Out. Trenton. Mo., June 27. Ten Rock Is land operators in the local offices struck Friday for an increase in wages.
