O'CONNOR Latest Novelties in Tobacco Jars and Pipe Racks at Burford's PRINCE RUPERT HAS SALT MINE A salt mine has been developed on the Skeena river 45 miles inland from Prince Rupert, and it already is ship plug salt to the fisheries of Northern British Columbia. The discovery of salt beds was made some time ago, but they did not promise to be suffic iently large to be developed into ship ping properties on a large scale until late last mouth, when a drill test was being made by a company of Prince Rupert men, in which F. H. Mobley, I D. Whiteford, John .Moffatt, and oth ers are interested, disclosed a large bed of pure salt. The discovery was made at Mile 45 on the Skeena river, and Is four miles east of Telegraph creek. The Prince Rupert Empire contains this account of an experimental ship ment of salt that was made from the property a few days ago: "Crippen s Boneless Herring, Ltd., received a consignment of salt a few days ago from the salt mine near Mile 4G. in which Mr. F. H. Mobley, of Stewart & Mobley, is interested. The consignment amounted to one ton, and according to Mr. Crippen. is of excep tionally good quality." JUNEAU MAN WANTS SKAG WA Y VEGETA BLES A gentleman from Juneau is in the j city today and says Juneau wants Skagway grown celery. Not only does Juneau want our celery, but she stands ready to take large quan ' tities of Skagway ranch products of all kinds. Last season demonstrated to the Capital city that the tenderest and most succulent celery that ever came to that city was produced In Skagway. This city can be made another Kalamazoo in the matter of growing celery. Nature has peculiarly fitted the soil tor its production. The stalks grow large and crisp and bring the highest market price. Visitors to Skagway, which include tourists from all over the world, are a unit in acknowledging the superiority of I our celery to that taken from any | garden in the world. What is true of celery is likewise true of cauliflower, lettuce, and cab bage. One trouble with Skagway is that most of her residents are, or \ have been miners, and the mining thought is uppermost. We get excit ed over the mention of a dinky gold stringer, while thousands of dollars are overlooked in this valley through neglect to cultivate the soil.' One hundred acres in the Skag way valley, divided up into a dozen ranches and thoroughly cultivated, will produce more revenue than any gold mine in Alaska outside of the Treadwell. We are rich in resourc es if we would but awake to a reali zation of our possibilities. One day's actual tilling of the soil right here is more valuable than a year's dreaming of some gold depos its somewhere else. Shafts may fill with water and tunnels cave. But ag riculture is always with us. The ground remain s productive. Skag way soil has been proven. There is pay in every inch of it.?Skagway Alaskan. CAPT. WARNER WILL COiMMANI) ALAMEDA Officials of the Alaska Steamship company announce that when the Alameda sails north on April 19, she will be in command of Captain Fred Warner, one of the most widely known masters sailing Alaskan wa ters. Captain John Johnson, who has for merly been in command of the Ala meda in former summers, is now the master of the Seward. The Alameda will sail for Prince William sound ports via the inside passage, touching at Ketchikan, Ju neau and Skagway. NEW CABINET MEMBERS ALL YOUNG FELLOWS WASHINGTON. ? Washingtonians who are fond of making observations and comparisons just now are finish ing their "sizing up" of President Wil son's new cabinet. Classification ac cording to whiskers is impossible, be cause only one member wears them. Classification according to age is dif ficult, because all are young. So the classification is being made by noses and chins. The average age of the cabinet is 50 years and 5 months. Secretary of Commerce Redfield?he with the ros eate whiskers--is the "patriach.", hav ing attained the age of 55. Secretary Bryan?once styled the "Boy Orator of the Platte"?is next in senority at 53. Secretaries Houston, Lane, Mc Adoo and Garrison and Postmaster General Burleson are still romping youths under 50. Anyone unkind enough to remem ber the ages of Taft cabinet members knows that only two members of that body were less than 50?Secretary of War Stimson and Postmaster Gener al Hitchcock.

Lovett, head of the Southern Pacific and Union Pacific railways, will sub mit plans for the dissolution of the two companies to the United States district court here, notwithstanding that they do not meet with the approv al of Attorney General James CMc Reynolds. His plans contemplate the placing of the $126,000,000 worth of Union Pacific Btock held by the Southern Pacific in the hands of a trustee for a time to be limited by the court, the Southern Pacific to re ceive beneficiary certificates for the stock that will permit it to receive the dividends, but the stock to be dis franchised at all elections and from representation on the board of direct ors. The Department of Justice will op pose the confirmation of the plan of Mr. Lovett as not being in harmony with the decision of the court in the dissolution of the two coinpunies was ordered. ALASKAN NAVIGATOR DIES IN NORTH ?KETCHIKAN, Alaska, April 8.?The Steamship City of Seattle arrived here j last night with the body of Andrew Johnson, a well-known Alaska captain of boats running in Southeastern Al aska waters. Johnson was enroute from his home in Portland, Ore, to Killisnoo, where he was to take command of the steam er Dolphin, but was stricken .with heart failure while the vessel was en route from Punter Bay to Excursion I Inlet.

GOVERNMENT PREPARES FOR CORDOVA BUILDING The postoffice department is al ready seeking information with refer ence to the securing of a site at Cor dova for a public building for which an appropriation of $100,000 was made by Congress last session. People of the city have been requested to offer suitable sites for the structure as do nations or with a price stated. The purpose is to get work started as soon as possible. BUSINESS IMPROVING ON PUGET SOUND Late newspapers to arrive from Se attle chronicle the fact that business properties in Seattle, particularly in the vicinity of Fourth, Westlake, Fifth and Sixth Avenues, between Pine and Virginia streets, in the "Denny re grade" district, is moving at a rapid rate. Sales and options approximat ing $2,000,000 were recorded in the 1 space of a few days last week. Wil liam Randolph Hearst, the newspaper man( was among those to take options. It is thought that he again contem plates establishing a morning news paper in Seattle. The movement is attributed to a more liberal policy on the part of the banks than has obtained for the last few years, and is hailed as a harbing er of more prosperous times in the whole Northwest. It is believed that the confidence the bankers feel in the stability of business conditions will result in an early resumption of com mercial and industrial activity. Correct Gardening "I suppose you will make a garden this year?" "No, I've concluded to go at the proposition scientifically. I'll put in this year learning the La-tin names of insects that have to be destroyed. Then I'll put in another year studying chemistry as it affects soil fertiliza tion, and then maybe I'll plant a few peas and string beans." 11II111 I I I 11 II I I I 11 I I I 11 1 i i Personal Mention :: J I II I I I I I n " I 1 1 I I I I I I I I I I M.
