GOVERNMENT WORK
BOOMS KN1K COUNTRY
KX1K, Alaska, Juno 14.?The un
precedented activity in business and
mining interests centering in Kuik
has received a new impetus through
the coming of (Jeorge Watkin Evans,
the coal milling expert and engineer,
detuiled by the govermneut to super
vise the mining of 800 tons of coal
in tile .Matanubka coal fields. Mr. Ev
ans is now superintending the cou
I struction of two light-draught bouts,
with which he purposes to undertake
the navigation of the .Mutunuska riv
er. if the experiment proves success
tul, the UO tons of government sup
plies, will be transported at least hulf
of the distance to the coal fields on
the river. This will greatly expedite
the work, as well as materially reduce
the expense of "packing." Mr. Evans
estimates that the govermneut will
spend, approximately $85,000 in the
work of miuiug and transporting coal
from the Mutunuska fields to tidewa
ter?a circumstance that constitutes
a large factor in the immediate future
prosperity of Kuik.

CANADIAN CAPITALISTS
BEGIN WORK AT KNIK
KXIK, Alaska, June 14.?The Cold
Itulliou mine, which was bonded to
Canadian capitalists in April, has been
taken over by the new operators, who |
brought in a large consignment of sup-1
plies, horses, and men. Work has also j
been started on the Alilo Kelly prop
erty, and that of C. W. Martin is ex
pected to open this mouth.

CREDIT FOR PEACE TO
RUSSIA AND FRANCE
PARIS, June 18.?To the Russian
government and the French bankers
more than anything else is due cred
it for the apparent passing of the prob
ability of war between the Balkan
States in the settlement of the diff
erences that arose out of the war
with Turkey. From the beginning the
Russian government exerted all of its
influence with all the countries con
cerned in the interest of peace, and
the French bankers, who had been pro
viding the countries with funds in the
conduct of their war against Turkey,
shut Balkan credit off entirely. This
was done at the suggestion of the
French government, it is believed, and
the government acted when implored
to do so by Russia.

NORTHERN TOURIST SEA
SON IS OPENING UP GREAT
The Spokane will leave Seattle to
night on the first trip of the 1U13 tour
ist season. Every berth and room has
been taken for the occasion. The do
' mand for tourist travel has also neces
sitated making a change in the sail
ing dates and schedule of the City of
Seattle. The City of Seattle will sail
June 20 aud travel to Juneau via Sit
ka.
The Jefferson of the Alaska Steam
ship Company has also disarranged
her sailing dates in order to bring
the Seattle Chamber of Commerce ex
cursion leaving Seattle June 21. The
Dolphin of this line will probably re
lieve the situation some during July
and the big liners traveling to the
Westward will probably continue to
make their regular trips carrying
round trip excursionists to the points
I along the regular runs only. The Ad
miral Sampson of the Alaska Coast
Company will also carry many round
trip excursionists.
C. D. Dunnau, passenger traffic man
ager of the Pacific Coast Steamship
Company will accompany the first ex
cursion trip of the Spokane this year,
as usual. .Mrs. Mary E. Hurt, official
lecturer for the company, will accom
pany each excursion, as she has done
for the last several seasons.

KNIK BOOMING BEYOND
CAPACITY OF BUILDINGS
KNIK, Alaska, June 14.?The pop
ulation of Knik continues to grow
apace, and we are credibly informed
that Brown & Hawkins, the Seward
merchants, will open a new store here
before July 1. House room is at a
premium, despite the building activ
ity of the past winter, and a half-doz
en more families are reported enroute
to Knik from Seattle.
The recent return of Hon. Milo Kel
ly and Mrs. Kelly, from Juneau, was
the occasion for a public meeting of
the Knik Commercial Club, at which
Mr. Kelly gave a very informing talk
concerning the work of the lirst Alas
ka Legislature. Questions asked by
miners and prospectors present indi
cated a keen and intelligent interest
in the legislation enacted, chiefly the
mining and eight-hour-day laws; and
a hearty vote of thanks was extended
to Mr. Kelly, on behalf of the constit
uents he has so satisfactorily repre
sented.
Knik will celebrate our National
and Territorial independence with a
street parade and a fiine program at
Community hall, on the evening of
July 4.
The possible taking over, by the
government, of the Alaska Northern
Railroad, and its extension to the coal
llelds, is said to be responsible for
a greatly reduced appropriation for
road building, this season. However,
$4,000 is available for this section,
and Supterintendent of Road Construc
tion Eide, of Seward, has taken sup
plies and a dozen men from Knik to
make needed improvements on the
wagon road to the Willow creek min
ing district.

WILLIAMS SUGGESTS
AMENDMENTS OF MERIT
Senator John Sharp Williams had
a suggestion in regurd to the income
tax which is eminently sound, al
though he did not press it as an
amendment to the pending bill. It
was to exempt an additional $1,000
from the income of a married man and
the further sum of $500 for each of
his children. There is many a man
with a $5,000 income who has for his
personal uses a smaller sum than he
had when was a youthful clerk on
small wages.?Seattle Post-Intelligen
