MacDonald Says World's Largest Gold Body here I Joseph Mac Donald made the atate ment more than ten years ago, while holding the position of superintend ent of the great Treadwell mines, that he believed the Alaska-Juneau, sit uated less than 2 miles from town, in Silver How basin, was the biggest gold quart/, mine in the world. Yesterday, Mr. MacDouald, who had hut just re turned from a trip of inspection through tlie wonderful development work, declared that he was now pos itive that his statement made prior to leaving Juneau was being proved true. "The Alaska-Juneau mine," he said, "is the greatest mine I have ever seen, and is coming up to the predictions that 1 made over ten years ago. "The mine has been worked from the top in a small way for a number of years. Now, the ore body is cut by the great tunnels and it" is prov ing to be of immense magnitude. Ex cepting the big iron deposits of the Massaba range, I do not know of a larger ore deposit in the world than that held in the zone immediately back of Juneau. The same ore shoots that penetrate the Alaska-Juneau property are in the Perseverance proper ! ty. Yes, I have every reason! to believe that it is Just as good. The j Kbner property lying next to the Alas-j ka-Juneau is another good property j that I am acquainted with, and though the values may not be so high, it is my opinion that it will yield at least a dollar per ton profit. "I have gone through the Alaska Juneau property recently and am thor oughly acquainted with its resources The Ilrst ore body encountered is 500 feet wide and will yield 78,750,000 tons; the portion in the basin below J the old workings is 1200 ft. wide and j 1500 ft. in length, and will yield 176,-1 400,000. The two bodies will yield a grand total of 254,150,000 tons. .Mining and milling 5,000 tons per day it will take 141 years to work out the j property above the tunnel level. The ore has a value running from $2.25 to $2.80 per ton. Under the gravity system that is being in stalled it can he mined and milled tor cents per ton allowing ten cents loss in tailings or lack of recov ery. I am working a big mine down in Mexico, hut in magnitude it is small (Continued to Page 3.) _ . j Floating Court House on Way SEATTLE, June 27. ? The Cutter Thetis arrived here from San Fran- | cisco last night on her way to Alaska ] to become a floating court house for , Judge ltobert \V.

POSTER KELLY IN TROUBLE AGAIN |s SEATTLE, June 27.?Mrs. Kelly has again instituted divorce against S.

Apparently there was a 1 complete reconciliation, and the Kellys began living together again. o?o?o REPRESENTATIVE OF WILSON ON JEFFERSON Among the excursionists on the Jef ferson is a personal representative of President Woodrow Wilson. After the trip he will make a report directly to the President on conditions in the North as he sees them. Seth Mann, alawyer of San Fran cisco, who is said to be particularly fitted for an intelligent study of Alas ka conditions on account of his famil iarity with mining and mining law, guiucd through his handling of many ca*es of quartz and placer litigation in the California courts, has received the apointment from President Wil son. Mr. Mann has been practicing law in California for many years, and though he has never held ollice, has been consistently prominent in Demo cratic circles. Mr. Mann Friend of Secretary Lane. The appointment of Mr. Mann was the direct result of the receipt by President Wilson of the comprehen sive album of amps and pictures of Aluska. compiled by the Alaska bureau and presented to the President. With the album went a note explaining the tour to be taken this summer and ask ing that a representative be appoint ed to accompany the excursion and i make a report to the President. The I President then assured Senator W. ! L. Jones and Charles 0. Helfnor that ' he would appoint some one to make I the trip. [ Mr. Mann was appointed at the sug r gestion of Secretary of the Interior I Franklin K. Lane. Mr. Mann made the nominating speech before the con ; ventlon when Secretary Lane was a . candidate for Governor of California. o?o?o CARD FROM C.

McPherson, while the Jefferson was in Wrangell. stating that the Jefferson would ar rive in Juneau today at noon and re main until evening.
