:: Alaska News Notes | 1 1 1 1 t I I !? It t I 1 1 1 I 1 H-H Mill E. R. Patten, an old prospector, died of starvation on the trail while com ing in from Healey River. Fairbanks district, where he had been pros pecting. He and his partner, Andy Roth, were on their road in when their supplies ran out and Patten be gan to weaken. Roth pushed on to reach a road house where he could get food and help for Patten, which he succeeded in doing, but he and his companions were three days in find ing Patten's body, the dead man hav ing wandered away during his last moments. The launch Corsair, which was wrecked at Katalla while unloading freight front the ttertha. is a total loss. Two men who have been try ing to salve the engine have been severely burned by an explosion of gasoline which finished the wrecking of the boat, says the Valdez Miner. Ered Muller, one of the meu en gaged in trying to save the engine was so badly burned by the explo sion that it is doubtful if he can re cover. Most of the freight was washed ofT the scows during the storm, and what little has been recovered is damaged by water. The Corsair was on fire for some time before going on the rocks. Al. Ness, who was killed, was in the engine room fighting fire, and when washed overboard it is believed, the sudden chill killed him. as the body was recovered ten minutes later where is was washed ashore. It is claimed death was not due to drown ing. Nothing is known as to what Di rector Holmes will do to replace his supplies, now lost for the second time. A new oil burner has been in stalled in the Ellaraar mine, to gether with a tank of 1,500 barrels capacity, which, it is thought will greatly reduce the running expense of the mine. The mine dock has been entirely overhauled, creosoted piles being used throughout. A five ton skip will soon be Installed which will do away with the old method of pushing cars from the bunkers to the ship. "Husky" King is back from Port Wells, where he has been prospect ing all summer with no little suc cess. being part owner of a number of promising properties. The boys from that section all agree that "Hus ky" came honestly by his nickname. ?Valdez Miner. A postofflce has been established at Copper Mountain, the camp of the Great Northern Development Co. The new office is called Phillips, and the postmaster is William Arnold. Mrs. R. S. Packard, eldest daughter of Col. B. F. Millard, of Valdez. died recently in Los Angeles. The vein on the Minnie claim on Shoup glacier is said to have opened up fabulously rich, being literally spotted with gold. The vein is from Ave to eighteen inches in width. A. H. Hall and M. H. Johnson ar rived in Valdez recently, having come direct from the Iditarod. by way of Fairbanks. They found the trail in good condition for traveling, having made the trip, to the coast leisurely in 1 4days. Most of the travel is being directed by way of Chitina, by road house men on the trail. It is reported that there is a fight on between the Alaska Packers' As sociation and the Northwestern Fish eries Company, on one hand, and the Lib by .McNeil & Libby people and the Booth Fish Company, on the other hand, the former seeking to drive the latter from the Alaska field, says the Prospector. In this scrap the small cannery men will have to go out of business, and there will be no new ones established as the price of canned salmon is too low to pack at a profit. ALASKA NEWS NOTES. Permission has been granted to the United States Marshal of Fourth di vision. to appoint a roving Deputy Marshal, whose duty, it will be to serve on the creeks to give aid where It is needed. The permit, was only granted after recommendations by the grand Jury and repeated ef forts of the office in Fairbanks. The big herd of caribou which an nually comes south to the headwaters of the Chena, Salcha and Goodpaster rivers recently crossed the Yukon in the neighborhood of Woodchopper creek and Charlie river. This is somewhat farther to the east than is customary, and it may be a week or two longer before stray bands from the big herd wander into the Big Chena country. There were some thing like 10,000 caribou in this herd. Of all the mastodons ever found the one recently uncovered on Coffee creek in Kougarok district seems to beat the record. The work of dig ging out the skeleton has proceeded far enough to ascertain that the tusks are 12 feet 6 inches in length. The preservation of the hair of the brute Is considered to be most re markable. Some of the tundra sur rounding the skeleton has been brought to Nome. It carries a large gauntity of hair which has remained intact throughout the ages since the giant beast died. Let Winter & Pond do your fram ing. Latest designs in mouldings just received. ???

TRAVELLER TALKS AND PHILOSOPHIZES Evert Nymanover. who Is stopping at tho Occidental while waiting for passage to Sitka, came lately to Alas ka from the Southern Hemisphere. At Rotorua, the Yellowstone Park of New Zealand, he paid a visit to u Maori chief, whose body was half tattooed, and purchased from mm a punamu (so-called green diamond, or Jade), for a pendant, which he now wears. On entering the chief's resi dence Mr. Nymanover was greeted thus: "Tannnrgwt Pukchn Parkchar," which means, "Good morning, Mr. White man." Honolulu, the traveler says, is the finest city he ever has visited. The climate Is ideal to perfection, '"but the natives sufTer complete extinction at the hands of a small bunch of white missionaries, who came there about ninety years ago. There are over CO, 000 Japenese and about 30,000 Chin ese in Hawaii, all slaves. The Ha wailans number something like 30, 000. "Queer," Mr. Nymanover remarked, "the whole civilization from Alpha to Omega of historic white man, means the most exacting, relentless, cruel slavery to every body, save the 'elect rich.' And this mastodon contempro rary seems to always llnd 'green pas tures' ready; us for Instance, In Hawaii, not to mention continental America Itself, a world of tragedy for gotten, and still so remurknbly fresh. Scientists talk of somersaults in the Terra Firma, etc., but here we see the very same happening In that remarkable conglomeration, people call the social fabric of man." WHO KNOWS AUSTIN LIND? \V.
