RIGHT IN TOWN
Frank A. Brown, vice president of
? the Boston Group Gold Mining Com
! pany, announced lust week, mention
| of which was made in the Empire,
that a crew of men were at work on
? an open cut to get a test on the sur
I face showing of the property to com
pare with previous mill tests from the
100-foot level.
This property is adjoining the city
limits of the town of Juneau. If Mr.
M. M. Rice, M. E., who examined the
property and reported thereon in 1905
is not at fault, the faith of the owners
Is justltied and their hopes may be
realized in which event another pro
ducing industry would be given to
Juneau that would add to the measure
of prosperity that is now assured.
According to the report this prop
erty embracing six claims has a body
of ore similar to that of Treudwell,
105 feet in width between walls slate
and greenstone with a value ranging
from $2.50 to $3.50 per ton with an
average free milling value of $3.00
per ton.
The report calls attention to the
geological formation, and to the loca
tion of the property with reference
to Treadwell. Perseverance, Ebner
and Sbeop creek mines aud submits
that the inducements offered for the
prosecution of further development
are worthy of consideration.
Mr. Brown himself thinks that in
the near future that capital will be
available for further development and
that their property will develop into
a good paying producer.
DARING OF RUSSIANS.
Not far from the sleepy town of
Sitka in Alaska there is a spot as
sociated with early Russian history
which President Taft has recently,
set aside as a national reservation.
The associations of the place have
long been recognized, and during his
administration Governor Brady caus
ed some totem poles to be erected
here to mark the spot where the Rus
sians made a successful stand against
the natives.
This national reservation was cre
ated under the law tor the preserva
tion of American antiquities, and as
a result tiftv-seven acres, through
which flows the beautiful Indian riv
er, will be free from settlement or
molestation. On this tract are the
graves of a midshipman and six sai
lors who perished in the conquest
of 1804. The setting aside of this
spot is a tribute to Russian daring
in the history of the Pacific coast.
.Much of the early history of the
settlement of Alaska is connected
with Gov. Baranoff, that slight, hos
pitable, roystering adventurer who
was a queer mixture of ability, cruel
ty and gentleness. He went from St.
Paul. Alaska, to establish a capital on
the island where is now the town of
Sitka, and after being handicapped
in more ways than one and fighting
several battles with the natives he
finally took possession of the tract
which is now a national reservation.
He erected fortifications and build
ings and started a commercial cen
ter for Russia Alaska, but he accom
plished these things only after much
discouragement and loss of life in
the long struggle.
The reservation, which is not far
from the curving shore of the bay of
Sitka, has an approach not surpassed
for beauty on the whole Pacific
coast. From Sitka to the site of the
reservation the Russians laid out a
marvelous "lover's lane" many years
ago. It is a walk built along the
curving beach, through the woods,
across and along the banks of the
pretty Indian river. Up and down
this walk the Russians used to stroll
and present day dwellers in Sitka
also make it a resort.
RETURNS FROM SITKA.
Evert Nynianover, a quondam
journalist from Minneapolis, now a
piano expert, who has been lately
touring the world, returned to Juneau
on the Georgia from Sitka. Mr. Ny
nianover is on record as having tuned
Madame Melba's baby grand, and the
piano of Willis E. Nowell, the Kube
lik of Alaska. Mr. Nynianover will
leave for Seattle within a short time,
well satisfied with his trip to Alaska.

Matters
SEATTLE. Dec. 1.?It Ik report
ed here on excellent authority that
the gold output or the Idltarod coun
try will this year reach threo millions
or a little bettor. The Yukon Gold
Company, u Guggenheim corporation,
is credited with having taken out a
million from August 15 to the clos
ing down of operations, with one
dredge working. They cleaned up
every four days aud according to the
at&toment made, the smallest clean
tip was 54,000 and tho largest $83,
000.
Otter creek, on which the Guggen
heims hud options, has not passed in
to their hands; the options having
lapsed, itlley & Mnrston's on Dis
covery claim, Ottor, Increased their
price nnd purchased a lotof adjoin
ing ground. Their option price was
$80,000.
Representative-elect Milo Kelly, of
Knlk, is out. In an Interview hero In
which tho statement is inude that
the Alnskn legislature will petition
President Wilson to retain tho pres
eit federal otllcials in Alaska, on the
grounds of experience and various
other qualities. Democrats and Re
publicans hero alike laugh at the
statement?not because there are not
lacking Republican officials in Alas
ka who have had experience and who
have given satisfaction?but because
the Democrats have been so bug ab
sent from the "pie-counter," that ex
perience and qualifications for offices
;re not likely to avail them to any
extent in their efforts to retain their
offices. Those who know Mr. Kelly
well, say he must have been perpetrat
ng one or his Jokes on a newspaper
.vrlter. Kelly himself Is a Repub
lican.

Juneau is noi iikuo i?o um;
!n Alasku that Is experiencing a min
ing boom. The Kougarok district of
:5c ward peninsula, is attracting much
attention. James Kelliher took in
:i dredge to the Kougarok last win
ter, and last summer it paid all ex
penses incurred in three clean-ups, so
next summer will see three more
dredges going in there, and there Is
now quite a scramble for river chan
nel ground.
The proposed Impeachment pro
reeding against Judge C. D. Murane,
of the Second judicial division is
causing some little excitement here
and quite a few are wondering if it
will end there. Probably it will, in
view of the fact that there will be a
Democratic administration after
.March -I, and it will be passed up to
the Democrats who can use the
charges against Judge Murane as a
pretext for removing him from office,
if they so desire.
There have been several columns
of newspaper notoriety over the Mu
rane matter and the Tiberg case. Ti
I erg was arrested at the instance of
the Pioneer Mining Company, of
Nome, on an indictment charging him
with having stolen some $14,000 from
the company's sluice boxes while in
the employ of that company. He was
tried last fall at Nome and was ac
quitted. He is now sueing the Pio
neer Company and Deputy Marshal
Joel F. Warren and other, who made
the arrest, for $660,000 damages for
false arrest, and also for the return
of his $14,000 which was taken from
him and which he has not been able
to get back. This $14,000 was in the
shape of a draft on a Seattle bank,
and when Tiberg was acquitted the
draft was a part of the court records,
and when his attorneys claimed and
got the draft they found it had been <
already cashed by the Pioneer Mill- <
ing Company, and it seems as if it ^
was through a ruling of Judge Mu-|1
rane, that the company secured pos- [ j
session of the draft. This is now bo ' 2
ing used as a basis for the charges j
that are being made against Murane.1 4
There are ntatiy Alaskans registered 2
here in the hotels from all parts of \ 1
the territory, from Ketchikan to I <
Nome, and one is always sure of ?
meeting some Alaskans he knows,
on the streets or about the various -i
hotels. There is much talk of Ju- [
there promises to be a considerable '
rush np there the coming spring.
