Latest Novelties in Tobacco Jars and Pipe Racks at Burford's | how 1916 Bears on I Bryan-Wilson's Cabinet * < ? < ? <? WASHINGTON, Jan. 17.?It Ib said * here that William J. Bryan would * not accept the State portfolio unless _ President-elect Wilson should make j It clear In his inaugural address that ? one term In the White House is all i ? he would expect or could ask for un \ | der the pledgo of the Democratic J | platform adopted at Baltimore. The ? Baltimore platform says: ? We favor a single Presidential I term, and to that end we urge the * adoption of an amendment to the ? Constitution making the President \ of the United States ineligible for ? re-election, and we pledge the can ? didate of the convention to this L principle. Democrats of Congress believe that * if Mr. Wilson is silent in his inaugu - ray address on this Important subject _ the public will consider him a candi date to succeed himself. If Mr. Wilson declares that he in terprets the single-term plank of the platform to apply to him, and that he will not be a candidate to succeed . himself, there will be no reason why Mr. Bryan should not accept a Cab-| inet place. It is an open secret that Mr. Bryan thinks that plank means one term for Wilson and that Bryan's enthus iastic friends expect to support Bry an for the Democratic nomination. Democrats who have been to New Jersey to see Mr. Wilson do not think that he considers the single-term pledge binding upon him. William G. McAdoo of New York is' calling on friends in Congress. He has seen a number of Democratic Sen-!1 | ators. He has said wherever he has been that he is not a candidate for I . a Cabinet place and does not want one, | but the impression left after his vis- i its is that he would not turn down | an offer of a portfolio. 11 Just after the election it was re- i ported in Washington that Mr. Mc- : Adoo and William P. McCombs had quarreled and were no longer friends. < This story is generally believed here t now, and it is not thought that Mr. j McAdoo will be offered a Cabinet , job. s I President Taft while willing to sub-1: mit to arbitration the questions at i issue between Great Britain and the i i United States over Panama Canal tolls, but he does not favor arbitra tion by The Hague Tribunal. That this Is the correct statement of his position became known here last night upon his return from New York. Although ho has not yet given the matter of a tribunal much thought, tho President probably would prefer a special board of arbitration com posed of an equal number of citizens of the United States and Great Brit ain. Such was to be the composition of the arbitral court he proposed to settle any vital question arising be tween nations when he spoke on be half of the arbitration treaties. The President has expressed to friends the view that at The Hague all Kurope would be against this nation, and that the moral pressure on the court would be enormous because all Europe is interested in Panama tolls just as much as is England. In a court on which only Great Britain and the United States were repre sented, it is argued, there would be a much greater chance for a fair de-l cision. Several Democratic Senators have voiced the opinion that a special tri-1 bunal be created to arbitrate this dis pute. In the near future Senator Clarke of Arkansas will introduce a bill for the expiration of the terms of post-1 masters of the first, second and third class upon some particular day oft the year. July 1 may be fixed. The bill may include District Attorneys, Collectors and Marshals. The suggestion does not meet with I favor from some Democrats, on the ground that it looks like a scheme to ?rab the patronage prematurely. The I plan seems to have originated with Mr. Clarke. It has not been laid be-l fore any committee or presented to i caucus of Democratic Senators. In formulating his suggestion, Mr. Clarke, it is said, did not have in I nind the incoming administration of President Wilson, but believed it ad ? isablo that some specific time be as ligned for the termination of official jositions. It is improbable that such i measure could be passed at this lession and its fate at the extraordi nary session Is problematical. ! Lode Mining in Other Districts of Territory Lode Mining in Other Districts. The influx of prospectors into the, Innoko-Iditarod region during the last J two years has stimulated the search j for lode deposits, but little has yet been accomplished in actual develop ment. In 1912 an auriferous quartz deposit was opened on Gaines creek, and a small mill was installed. This operation has been successful and is an indication of the possibilities of lode mining. More important is the fact that many other metalliferous veins have ben found and that the ge ologic conditions are favorable to their occurrence in considerable areas of the Innoko basin and adjacent por tions of the Kuskokwim basin. The Apollo mine, on Unga island, continued in 1912 to be the only pro ductive lode mine in southwestern Alaska. Some work was continued on lode prospects in the Iliamna region, notably on the Duryea silver lead de posit. There was but little advance in quartz mining during 1912 in Seward peninsula. Some prospecting was done, as well as assessment work on j a large number of claims. The New Era Mining Co., opened a quartz lead near Snow Gulch, where a 4-stamp mill has been installed. Considerable ore was also treated at the Nome cus tom mill. Plans have also been made to install a stamp on a property lo cated near Bluff, 60 miles east Nome. Copper Mining. The Increased copper production of 1912, compared with 1911, is to cred ited to the Chitina and Prince William Sound districts. The rise in the price of copper led to much prospecting and dead-work in these as well as In other districts. The Jumbo and Rush & Brown mines were the only considerable shippers of copper ore in the Ketchi " kan district. It appears that the Mount Andrew mine was idle for most of the year, but plans have been for mulated for systematic development. Developments were continued on the It, the Red Wing, the Vittory, and the Lhote & Sanford properties, and steps were taken looking to the reopening of the Copper Mountain mine. Some work was also done on a copper-bear ing vein at Sumdum, in the Juneau district. The Kennecott-Bonanza mine is the only one in the Kotsina-Chitina die trict from which shipments were made in 1912, but a large amount of devel opment work wub done on other prop erties. The concentrator installed in 1911 at the Bonanza mine was operat ed during 1912. At the west end of the field work was continued on the Mother Lode, Nikolai, and Westover properties and also on a property lo cated on an island in the Kennecott Glacier. Prospecting and developing were especially active in the vicinity of Kuskulana river. Here the largest operations were thoso of the Great Northern Development Company, which completed about 5,000 feet of development work. The Alaska Con solidated Copper Company carried on development work on Nugget creek and on the Rarus group of claims. The Alaska United Copper Exploration Company continued work on the large number of claims located on Pc:cu plne creek. In addition to the above, a large number of claims were being opened in the Kuskulana region dur j ing tho summer of 1912. This field is now readily accessible from the rail way, and a branch has been surveyed which would permit the shipment of ore. On Prince William Sound shipments were made by tho Ellamar Mining Company, the Threeman Mining Com pany, the Landlocked Bay Copper Min ing Company, and the Beatson Cop per Company, located on Latouche isl and. In addition to productive prop erties, there were a large number of claims on which development work was carried on, some of which give promise of soon reaching a shipping stage. A notable advance was that made on the Soloman Gulch proper ty, near Valdez, where a force of men was engaged during the year in open ing a chalco pyrite ore body. But little advance was made in cop per prospecting in those Inlar.d dis tricts which are far from transporta tion. About 25 men are said to be carrying on prospecting and assess ment work in the White river region, and there are also some in the Na besna district. Prospectors report the finding of copper ore on Sheep Mountain, in the Matanuska valley. Some copper ore has also ben found on a tributary of the McLaren river, in the headwater region of the Susit na. A little development work was also continued on the copper pros pects of the Iliamna region, in South western Alaska.
