There was never a time in the history of this Territory

NORTHERN CONDITIONS
NEVER SO BRIGHT
Never have conditions in AluSka
looked brighter lor a banner year in
business than at present. From Nome
to Skagway, all cities are preparing
for added business and many of them
are enjoying the resumption of traf
fic which has already begun. That
there is to be an enormous increase
in'the Interior business is evidenced
by the way the transportation com
panies are starting out to capture it
One of the foremost to see the com
ing events is the White Pass Rail
way Company. With new boats on
the lower Yukon and new boats being
put into service connecting Seattle,
with Fairbanks in a through transpor
tation service, evidences the foreshad
owing of activities to come.
The government is sure to begin 1
the construction of railroads within
the next year, which means the de
velopment of the country along many
lines Coal mining has already be
gun, and gold and copper mining is'
increasing by leaps and bounds.
The increasing output of the Atlin
[mining district and the new strikes in
j the Teslin is even now adding to the
business that is being done in Skag
[ way. Juneau is enormously increas
ing her mining development: the
White river, and Kluane countries are
showing better than ever before, and
j there is a promise of a railroad being
constructed tapping the rich deposits
in the districts back of Haines.
Coming right down to home affairs
we hear it rumored, from good sourc
es, that the White Pass is to stand
ardise their system and begin laying
a broad guage track before the clos
ng of another season. It is with that
end in view, that no new equipment is
1 being ordered for the present sys
tem. Considering all things, there is
every reason to believe in a coming
era of prosperity that will satisfy the
most pessimistic. -Skagway Alaskan.
