How many people In the Pulp and.
Paper Manufacturing business know
that there is enough pulp wood in
Alaska to perpetually supply the ton
nage of newsprint now made in Am-1
erican mills? Who says so? The I
Government of the United States of!
America has issued Bulletins on this
subject, and the Forestry Department j
of your Uncle Sam's business has 1
complete records of the Government !
owned timber in Alaska to prove 1
this.
And the Good laird seems to have :
it all figured out that newsprint .
should some day lie made in Alaska,
for He provided, in addition to ilie
pulp wood, water powers of high de
gree with which lo produce the pulp i
Unde Sam's employes have kept a
record of the run-off at many points
for the past ten years and. in sum •
instances. complete topographical
maps are available, the results of,
many months of surveys, to prov
that these powers really exist hun
dreds of thousands of continuous
horsepower.
Alaska is not a perpetual rcfrigei
ator, as many think. It gets cooler.
in winter than in summer, of course, i
ft does this everywhere the world j
over, almost, but the Ocean passages
and inlets never freeze, and trans

In winter, the days are short, and

winter, touches on this lower Alaska
coast as well, to the end that front
ilti' Notrlhern Hritish Columbia Un
to and North of Juneau. Alaska, the
winter is mild and with the exception
of occasional snows and a few day
hovering above zero, tlie climate iv
about Hie same as in Hritish Co
lumbia.
Hut the summers are cool, ami the
days are long. Tlie longest day i i !
the year not so many miles north of |
Juneau, the sun shines full 24 hours, i
and the people do not know when to j
go to bed. They work by the clock.j
eat by the clock, hut then seem,
to forget the clock, and seem never
to sleep.
YYildflowers, in fact all vegetation,
woi k overtime. I never saw prettier
wildflowcrs anywhere, nor ate better
strawberries, even in Oregon where
they are supreme.
The sunsets when there are any,
are beautiful to say the least. I have
not t oiuniand of words to paint their
beauty.
Of course, it rains—and some rain,
too but that is what keeps up the
wonderful lakes and rivers, feeding
the powers and supplying that most
oi all needed plant food, moisture for
trees pulp wood.
Not all kinds of trees, hut lots of
them. Only two kinds of pulp wood
gro win Alaska—spruce and hem
lock. and practically no other kinds
rf trees are to be found. Probably
not over 2 per c ent of tlie total are;
of other specie:-, chiefly cedar, no fir j
hut a little scrub pine.
Trees from 12 inches to 26 inches I
at th estump. and 100 to 200 feet j

i aft or load on barge or scow. Easy I
to tow and eusy to look upon. Be- j
sides, tlie Government will be easy
on the first people who undertake
to go into business in tlie Territory,
to use this wonderful product of the;
Northland.
1 have been over many sections of
British Columbia. Ontario, aud Que
bec provinces. There is nothing that
I have seen up (hat way to compare
with this Alaska npulp wood, either
in quantity per acre, or section or
in quality. And, the climate is so
far ahead of Ontario and Quebec
that they umnot he considered in
the same class.
The distance front the large paper
consuming markets of the United
Slutes. is not so great as one might
think. It is only a day or two fav
ther away by steamer, than the far
thest North Pulp and Paper mill now
operating at Ocean Falls, B. C , now
shipping paper to all countries or the
world it is a day farther away from
Powell Klver. than from Ocean Falls.
Alaska is probably three weeks to
a month away from New York by
steamer, and a shorter distance from
the Southern States, many of which
are now being supplied from British
Columbia.
more can I say? Those in
lerested in a perpetual supply of I
pulp wood should look Into Alaska
and move qulclcly.

from the Republican party. Roose
velt accepted the i hallenge and soon
after his arrival in Chicago, his ad
herents left the party ' convention
and organized the Progressive or
Hull Moose convention and nomin
ated Roosevelt for the presidency.
The defeat of both Roosevelt ami
Tuft by Woodrow Wilson, the Demo-j
jeratic nominee, took McKinley down;
to defeat in his home district and he I
was out of Congress! in 1913 and |
1911. He was again elected to the |
house, however, and in 1921 was j
elected to the Senate by a few thous-j
