MacDonald Says World's
Largest Gold Body here
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
"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

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. Jennings and the oth-1 |
er officers of his court that will go to |
the Alaska Westward for two months^
beginning July 15th.
SEATTLE, June 27.?Mrs. Kelly has
again instituted divorce against S.
Foster Kelly, her husband, the form- :
er Seattle banker who acquired a
great deal of notoriety a few years
I ago by eloping with Mrs. iva May I
1 Henry, wife of a bank clerk in the in
stitution of which he was an officer. 1
After the elopement, Kelly and Mrs
Henry separated and the former re
turned to his wife who dismissed the 1
suit she had started against him nnd
forgave him. Apparently there was a 1
complete reconciliation, and the Kellys
began living together again.
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
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.
IMease take notice that we
have no agent or agents in the

place of business, and that is at

the Juneau Commercial Club, received
a cablegram from J. I.. McPherson,
while the Jefferson was in Wrangell.
stating that the Jefferson would ar
rive in Juneau today at noon and re
main until evening. This cable to Mr
Reck, of course, was an error on the
?part of some person, but nothing ser

it was erroneous. The later advices
are in line with the itinerary ar
ranged before the Jefferson sailed
from Seattle and as published i i The
