Minerals of the Mt. Wrangell
Patient Steps In the Subjugation of
the Land Described?Resources of
the Country Mapped.
The activities of the twentieth century
nre not all prosaic. There arc still" uncon
quered regions of the earth that draw to
them heroic souls that are the pioneers?
literally the road breakers, or Bahnbrccher,
as the Germans so aptly call them?for the
rest of mankind. Explorers and cartogra
phers are claiming and mapping new wil
dernesses no less enthusiastically and much
more effectively than In the days of Chris
topher Columbus and Richard Hakluyt.
The spirit of the age, which Is nothing If
not scientific, demands that the tale of their
achievements be told simply, but between
the lines the sympathetic reader, who can
see and judge alike the old exploits and the
new. catches the shadow of the dramatic.
The Mt. Wrangell District.
Tt fails upon him as he turns the pages of
Professional Paper No. 15, published by
the United States geological survey, which
concerns the mineral resources of the
Mount Wrangell district. Alaska. In this
paper the authors. Messrs. Walter C. Men
denhall and Frank C. Schrader. have de
scribed in plain language the chief topo
graphic and geologic features and the min
eral deposits of that district, but the
thoughtful reader who carefully scans the
photographs of thos* bleak regions and the
topographic map that accompanies the pa
per will realize the difficulties and the mag
nitude of the work. This report has been
Issued In advance of the contoured maps,
which will accompany a later report on the
general geology of th*> district. In order to
place it at an early date in the hands of
those Interested the topographic material
has been brought together in one liachured
map, which Is contldently presented as the
most complete and accurate representation
of the physical features of the district cen
tering in Mount Wrangell that Is now avail
Subjugation of the Land.
The Impression of the need for heroic
temper in work of this nature is strength
ened by perusal of the short introduction
that opens the paper. In it are recounted
the patient steps thus far taken in the sub
jugation of the land. The extent to which
this conquest has progressed is most
clearly indicated by the growth in populi
tion find in m neral output shown by ti e
statistics of Alaska in the last twenty
years. Its population of 4:?<) whites in 1HN >
had Increased to 3". !U'l in 1900. During
the decade between 1X90 and 1900 the an
nual value of Its output of precious metals
rose from $772,197 to JS.2tJ5.772.
Gold Discoveries.
The larger part of this growth began
with the discovery, late In the autumn of
lSOt'i. of the placer deposits of Klondike
river, in Canadian Yukon territory. An
important part of the general movement to
ward Alaska that followed was directed to
ward Copper r.ver. the immigration there |
first reaching considerable proportions la
the spring of lM'.VS, Previous to this some
thing of the geography and geology of the
Copper river valley had been letrned
through a number of explorat.ons conduct
ed In 1?S4. 1SK5 and l.Ol. mainly under the
auspices of the War Department. Except
for these surveys nothing of consequence
was done within the Copper river btsin
previous to 1MW, and the Prince William
sound district had been inhabited only ty
natives and those whites who were en
gaged in the salmon fisheries or had es
tablished trading stations for carrying on
fur trattle with the natives.
Crossed the Mountains.
During the season of 1S9S about 4.0><J
people were landed at Valdes, about 3,000
of whom crossed forbidding mountains,
nearly 100 miles wide and <5,000 feet high, to
reach the Copper river valley. A year later
not more than 3U0 of the original 4.0 0 re
mained .n the country, but it was they who
undertook the first real work done In the
Chlstochina gold field and located the
Nikolai topper mine. The development of
the interior advanced rapidly with the con
struction of the military trail, directed by
Major Abcrcrombie In 1899. 1900 and 19 ?l.
At the same t.me map work was carried on
by officers of the United States army, who
made known the geographic details of that |
part of the Chugach range lying between
Valdes bay and the Klutlnu and Copper
Mineral Resources Mapped.
in 11100 Messrs. Schrader. Spencer, (Jer
dine and Wltherspoon, all of the United
States geological survey, spent the summer
In the Copper River region. As a result of
their work during that season the Kotsina
and Ohltlna valleys and all their various
routes of approach were accurately map
ped. and the first comprehensive account
of the geology and the mineral resources
of the district from the hands of compe
tent experts was published.
At the same time the signal corps of the
United States army took up the work of
telegr iph construction. A line was begun
at Valdes In 1900, and during the summer
of UX?2 was completed by way of the Cop
per liiver valley and Mentasta pass to
Eagle, on the Yukon, connecting there with
the line to Dawson, thus completing tele
graphic communication between the In
terior of Alaska and the outside world.
Recognizing the prospective Importance of
the cistrlct, the United States geological
survey In 1902 expended one-half of Its
Alaskan appropriation In dispatching to the
region two well-equlped parties to con
tinue the work begun in 1H00, until a prac
tically complete map of the Copper basin
und the economically important contiguous
regions should be made. It was the fur
ther object of those Intrusted with the
work to examine such mineral deposits of
the district as had not been examined In
Treasures of Alaska.
It sounds matter of fact enough; In real
ity It is a twentieth-century version of the
old Nlblungen story. Treasures are there
of gold and silver, of copper and of coal.
Heroes there are a plenty, ready to do and
dare all for possession of the hoard. To
push their way across the trackless
Stretches of that northern land, searching
for the places where the treasures lie. is
not so difficult for the bold and hardy, but
to know the treasure when they see It.
and to bring It out when they have found
It?that is the twentieth-century difficulty.
To make this work easier, season after
season a special band of men, members of
the United States geological survey, are
using In that distant land all the cunning
of their training and ex[>erlence, and are
writing directions for all the world of mod
ern argonauts. The particular report
noted above, which was first announced
some months ago. may now be obtained
from the director of the geological survey.

Nothing but praise is heard concerning
the Sunday school convention, which was
held the first of the week In the Congre
gational Church. November 2-4. and already
plans are being laid for next year. Part
of the plan leading up to the convention

time In February by the Primary Teachers
Union, at which prominent out-of-town
primary workers will assist. While the
Sunday School Association is not a gov
ernmental body and does not enact leg
islation for its constituent members, yet
its utterances are considered important as
voicing the sentiment of Sunday school
people. One of the most Important of the
resolutions adopted by the convention was
one relating to the international un'iorm
lesson series, now in use by more P1".1}

parts of the world.
The resolution referred to is to the effect
that "we recognize in the internaUona

march of real progress. The fidelity, jtidg
ment and success with which the lesaon
committee is performing a task of great
difficulty, give occasion lorour Profound
gratitude, and we believe that the same
plan may safely be continued, and with
growing acceptance and usefulness.
"We are glad that the plan embraces the
study of the whole Bible, and that e?
i perlence has shown It adapted to all ages
and classes. Among the results of Its
adoption and use we bring testimony to
th" 'First*Interest In Bible study is stim

The chapter of the Daughters of the King
of St. Mark s Episcopal Church, corner of
3d and A streets southeast, has decided to
take up "home department work in con- |
nectlon with the Sunday school. The object
will be to secure systematic study of the ,
Christian faith on the part of as many ot j
the members of the parish as P'^siblo_
One-half hour's study a week w'll be

One by one. it Is said, the churches of the
city are taking up this phase of Sunday
school work, and the action of the ot.
Mark's chapter is but an example of the
general movement. In many instances the
necessity of calling upon large numbers of
the church members has. It is claimed, im
peded the movement, as visiting all has
been regarded as a tedious and almost end
less undertaking, but by a proper division
of the lists among large staffs of "visitors,'
each individual of whom is thus required to
call on only ten or twenty members a
month or a quarter, as the case may be,
this difficulty, it is said, has been consider
ably obviated. A large number of the
Protestant churches in this city and in
other American cities have taken up the
matter, and so Important has this branch of
Sunday school labors become that it has.
been recognized as a distinct and essential
movement by the Sunday School Associa
tion of the District of Columbia to the ex
tent that special sessions were devoted to a
discussion of its problems at the annual
convention of the association, held this
week at the First Congregational Church.
It is the intention of the Sunday school
workers of the District to do their best to
excite new interest In this matter, and it
is their hope that they will meet with un
precedented success.
An encouraging feature of the movement,
in the minds of those most interested in It,
is the way in which the home students re
ceive the lesson literature distributed to
them by the women visitors. It 1b said that
no difficulty is experienced In securing a
sincere and active membership, and that
many persons who cannot or will not at
tend Sunday schools will study the Inter
national Bible'lessons each week In' .their
homes and make satisfactory reports to
the visitors at stated intervals. The depart
ments are, in most cases, under the direc
tion of superintendents, as are the regular
The whole question of Bible study in the
home is awakening much Interest in church
circles, and It is believed by many that.the
energies of the various denominations will
be bent in the direction of instituting and
fostering It in the future. It may, it is
sard, become one of the most Important
modern religious movements.
Rev. Thomas Needham. Bible evangelist,
has been conducting meetings for two
weeks in the Church of the United Brethren
in Christ, corner of R and North Capitol
streets. Much interest has been manifested
in the.=<? meetings. Bible lessons have been
given in the afternoons of this week from
4 to 5 o'clock. Last Sunday the church
was crowded when Mr. Needham preached.
Many Illustrations from his personal experi

by the cannibals by a cross on his arm.

The Gurley Memorial Presbyterian En
deavorers enjoyed a very pleasant Hal
loween party at the church last Saturday
night. Ghostly' Invitations had been sent
out, written oij- black paper with white Ink
and Inclosed iti black envelopes bearing a
design of skull and cross bones In place of
a stamp. On arriving the x-lsitors were met
by several silent ghosts, who merely pointed
to the room where wraps might be left. A
number having come, it was announced that
the company was to follow a dismal trail
under the guidance of a ghost, and for their
safety a rope was stretched along the route.
This announcement met with an enthusias
tic response, and before the party had gone
very far all were made to feel that they
surely must have been expected by the
ghosts, who appeared from every dark cor
ner. All having followed the rope to its
end, the company was seated in a circle and
the members were obliged to pass to each
other various articles of a clammy nature
without permitting them to'drop.
A gloomy efTect was given to the room, the
darkness being only partly dispelled by the
glimmering lights from a few jack-o'-lan
terns with crude faces and a occasional
illuminated outline of skull and cross
bones. These lanterns were heavily banked
with branches of autumn leaves, and In
stead of giving light they appeared only to
Intensify the darkness. In one corner the
fortunes of the guests were told in the light
of a mysterious Same by a gipsy, who is
known at other times as Miss Grace Burger.
A great deal of amusement was caused by
silhouettes of those present which were
thrown on a sheet, <the company being di
vided and each side guessing those of the
opposite side.
Refreshments consisting of apples, pop
corn and lemonade were served, and all
present gave evidence of enjoying the.affair,
which was the result of the efforts of the
social committee, under the direction of
Miss N. B. Heizer and Miss Grace De Rie

Topic: "Great Men of the Bible: What Elijah
Tearht-s Us"?2 Kings 2: 1-12; Matthew 11: 14;
James 5: 17, 18.
2 Kings: L And it came to pass, when the
Lord would take up Elijah into heaven by
a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha
from Gilgal.
2. And Elijah said unto Elisha, Tarry
hert;, I ppay thee: for the Lord hath sent
me to Bethel. And Eiiaha said unto him.
As the Lord liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I
will not leave thee. So they went down to
3. And the sons of the prophets that were
at Bethel came forth to Elisha. and said
unto him, Knowest thou that the Lord will
take away thy master from thy head today?
And he said,' Yea, I know it; hold ye your
4. And Elijah said unto him, Elisha,
tarry here I pray thee; for the Lord hath
sent me to Jericho. And he said. As the
Lord liveth and as thy soul liveth, I will not
leave thee. So they came to Jericho.
5. And the sons of the prophets that "were
at Jericho came to Elisha and said unto
him, Knowest thou that the Lord will take
away thy master from thy head today?
And he answered. Yea, I know K; hold ye
your oeace.
6. And Elijah said unto hlqn, Tarry, I pray
thee, here; for the Lord hath sent me to
Jordan. And he said. As the Lord liveth,
and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave
thee. And they two went on.
7. And fifty men of the 90ns of the proph
ets went and stood to view afar oft; and
they two stood by Jordan.
8. And Elijah took his mantle and wrap
ped It together and smote the waters, and
they were divided hither and thither, so
that they two went over on dry ground.
9. And it came to pass, when they were
gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha,
Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be
taken away from thee. And Elisha. said, I
pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit
be upon me.
10. And he said. Thou hast asked a hard
thing: nevertheless. If thou see me wlien I
am taken from thee. It shall be so unto
thee; but if not. it shall not be so.
11. And it came to pass, as they still
went on, and talked, that, behold, there
appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of
fire, and parted them both asunder, and
Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
12. And Elisha saw it, and he cried. My
father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and
the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no
more; and he took hold of his own clothes,
and rent them in two pieces.
Matthew ii:14. And if ye will receive it,
this is Elias, which was for to come.
James 5: 17. Elias was a man subject to
lake passions as we are, and he prayed
earnestly that it might not rain, and It
I rained not on earth for the space of three
i years and six months.
18. And he prayed again, and the heaven
gave rain, and the earth brought forth her
One translation of the name Elijah gives
Its meanin-g as "J?hovah is my strength."
Mr. Meyer says: "This gives the key to his
life. God was the strength of his life; of
whom should he be afraid? When the
wicked, even his enemies and foes, came on
bim to eat up his flesh, they stumbled and
fell. Thougli an host should encamp against
him, his heart should" not fear. What a
revelation Is given us in this name! Oh,
that It were true of each of us! Yet. why
should it not be? Let us from henceforth
cease from our own strength, which at the
best Is weakness, and lert us appropriate
God's by daily, hourly faith. This then shall
be the motto of our future lives, 'In the
Lord have I righteousness and strength; I
can do all things through Christ which
strenglheth me; ttie Lord is my strength
and song, and He is become my salva
tion.' "
The charax-ters of the great men we have
been studying for tthe past few weeks
stand out from others like bright jewels of
unsual size and value. We hardly class
them with ourselves. They seem to have
more of the divine in their natures than we
have. We admire them and emulate them,
but still we easily excuse ourselves if we do
not follow closely all their virtues, because
they seem to be something far bejind us in
natural gifts. It is almost startling there
fore to read that this great Elijah, God's
prophet, who could do so many wonders in
the name of God, and upon whom the power
of God rested so fully, was a "man of like
passions with ourselves." This brings Eli
jah down to the possibilities of our own
There was a wistfulness about Elisha as
he stuck to Elijah, following from point to
point, longing for that double portion of his
master's spirit. Would to God that more of
us could so admire the saints who walk in
Cod's footsteps, and so long for the same
clo^ fellowship with Jesus that we would
devote ourselves to watching them and fol
lowing them about, trying to study out
their secret and make It ours. Each one of
you knows some man or woman who seems
to you Elijah-like in life, doing great ser
vice for God. being greatly blessed and
wondrously cared for in time when others
were in trouble and distress. Each one of
us has wondered over these earthly saints
and felt rebuked sometimes that we were
not more like them, but excused ourselves
with a hopeless feeling that It was Impos
sible. But the trouble is when a saint does
come our way, or a prophet, we are so ter
ribly uncomfortable contrasting our own
lives with his. that we get out of his way as
much as possible for our own peace of
mind. But Elisha watched the man whom
he admired, and loved and took not his eyes
away from him until the sight was given
him of the chariot and horses of flame,
sign and signet of that "double portion"
that was to be his if he followed and
watched faithfully. It Is worth while ask
ing ourselves the question whether, if we
followed more closely our master, watched
more closely His prophets, we, too. might not
be given a portion of the wonder-working
spirit that should enable us to "remove
mountains" with our faith.
Applied Truth.
When Wishart, the great Scotch preach
er. was seized by the authorities for heresy,
young John Knox wanted to go with him to
suffer and die with him If need were, tn
order that he might be privileged to add his
testimony to that of Ms master. "No," sold
Wishart, who had perceived what manner
of man it waa he had for a pupil. "No, go
bo me now to your bairns. God wants you
to live for him, not die for him." Thus
Wishart went to the ?take, and Knox went
home, not to be heard of again tor years.
He was ready for either life or death, as
God willed. It some times takes more
strength to live an Elijah life than to die
or be carried away In the glory of Are. Eli
jah went through some hard dark times.
Just an do you and I, bat hia end was glory.
May not yours and mine be also?

Have the different points in Elijah's life
brought out, to show the human side of his
character. Emphasize his weaknesses,
showing their parallel in our own lives. Ask
the members who take up these different
incidents In his Ufa to show also how his
only strength was in God. For Instance,
recall tho time when he sat down under a
Juniper tree and requested that he might
die. Show how like us sometimes. Speak
of God's tenderness with him and how he
was always helped otlt of any difficulty.
Make your central thought that God will
help us each to do great things for Him
if we care to be Ills chosen ones, though it
may be but an humble way In which we are
to begin.

"The porcupine may not be a desirable

"True," replied the fox, "but he is apt to
be an awful flatterer."
"Flatterer!" echoed the coon.
"Yes," answered the fox. "he is apt to
