BEATTIE, Secy. 7-2t HAINES IS AFTER J THAT_RAILROAD HAINES, March 7.?Haines has de termined to get a railroad to the Tan ana Valley if that is possible, and there is a settled conviction hero that it is possible. The matter has been ta'ten up with Premier Sir Richard McBride, of British Columbia, and maps and In formation have been placed In his hands, showing the availability of the Halnes-Interior route, for the purpose of getting him and tho Canadian gov ernment interested In it. H. P. Blrk inbine, the civil engineer of this place, prepared tho data. The Haines Demo cratic Club appointed a committee to prepare an argument in support of the proposition. The committee, which was composed of Steve Ragun, S. J. Weltzman and G. W. Hlnchmnn, wrote a letter to Sir Richard, in which it was said: "From the tide-water at Haines to the International boundary line is a distance of 45 miles. From the Inter national line to the British-Yukon Ter ritory line is 35 miles.- From the Brit ish Columbia-Yukon Territory line to the Yukon Territory-Alaska line is 240 miles. From the Alaska line on would be measured according to where It terminated. At a glance you can see the portion of the road which would be in British Columbia is not great, but we want to impress upon you that it is very rich in resources. We think you could find no other section of Brit ish Columbia, anyway near the same distance across, that is nearly so rich as this section. uovcrnmcni nua runuo. "Wo fear that rocent Congrosslonal actions and newspaper articles lead you to believe that our Government could not build their portion of this road, should one be built from here, and also open the coal fields. It Is true the coal fields were used as ar gument In securing the passage of the measure, yet, tho measure provides for the building of 1,000 miles of rail road. To say, for argument's seke only, that our government would buy the Copper River road which ex ends In from Cordova, and would then vxtend the line on to Fairbanks; then from Seward to the Matanuska coal fields; then build from Katalla to Bering riv er; and then would build from Haines to the British Columbia boundary and from the Yukon Territory boundary to Fairbanks, they would Btill have 16 miles to spare from tho 1000 miles au thorized. Best Route. "By reference to a map showing alti tudes you will note this proposed route traverses river valleys length wlBe, al so runs lengthwise of the mountain ranges thereby encountering a lesser number of barriers to be surmounted than any other of the proposed Alaska routes, and we submit that this, again, will cause Interest from our govern ment as well as that of yours. Also we desfre to call attention to the fact that these valleys are rich in grazing and agriculture possibilities, and we submit that agriculture furnishes greater tonnage, for a railroad than even the best of the lode mining camps.
