ALASKA SENATORS BOOSTED I
RAILROAD BILL AT CAPITAL
"Three members of the Alaska Ter- 1
ritorial Senate who signed the famous
letter to Secretary of the Interior
Franklin K. Lane were at Washington
for a part or all of the time that the
Senate and House of Representatives
were debating the Alaska railroad bill
and they urged the passage of the
measure upon their friends at every ;
opportunity. At least two of the mem- 1
bers of the Seuate endorsed the meas
ure in writing to the Secretary of the i
Interior." said a man who was in
Washington at that time.
"Perhaps It is not generally known,"
continued the late Washington visit
or. "that the charges made against
these Senators by Delegate James
Wickersham. was not delivered in a
speech In Congress, but were 'extend
ed' in the Congressional Record un
der the privilege that is granted mem
era."

FOR ATLIN SECTION jj
VI
James McCloskey. who arrived on tj
the Humboldt yesterday from an ex- It
tended visit in the States, predicts 0I
that this will be a banner year in the
Atlin country. The McCloskey broth
tn, James and John, of Juneau. are;p
among the heavier Atlin mining oper
ators and are thoroughly familiar with Q|
conditions that exist there. Speaking:
jf the season's outlook Mr. McCloskey j
said: J
"We expect to begin earlier, to work
more men and to take out more gold
than in any season since we com-: .
menced operating. John will go in Jl
and start operations about April 15. ;
and I will remain here until July be- j*
fore going in. The Atlin country will '
have a remarkably successful season ,
this year. Everybody will do better '
than in past years. The strike on ?
O'Donnell river will help swell the 1
output to a large amount compared ^
with previous years, and conditions
arc generally favorable for a good
season." ? ^

BERING COAL NOT ,
SUITABLE EOR NAVY
WASHINGTON, March 28?Secre
tary of the Navy Josephuu Danlols re
ported to Congress yesterday after
noon that the coal of the Bering river
Molds is unsuitable for use in the navy "
according to tests made by the Geol- <
ogical survey officials, officials ut An- v
nnpolis, and aboard the Maryland. He
said that all of the tests were unfa
vorable except that the Alaska coal
made less smoke than normal. Tho
report states that the Bering river
coal is incapable of generating a suf- ''
ficient quantity of steam and could 1
produce only about 60 per cent, efflc- c
,ency of power.
Director of the Bureau of Mines l'
Holmes is quoted as authority for the P
statement that tho Bering coal could 8
be mined only at great cost. Ho says e
it is full of faults, and that it would
be chiefly valuable if turned into coke
and shiped.

nan of Senator John W. Weeks, of n
the government establish a line of fast u
naval cruisers to carry mail and pas
sengers and freight between the Unit- ^
d States and South American, Atlan
tic and Pacific ports.
This plan is one that was suggest
ed first by WiBiain J. Bryan several
years ago, following an extensive tour
of South America, b
Mr. Bryan suggested it as a method 11
of extending American commerce with- "
out the evils of subsidies and in a ?'
manner where the government would
be benefitted, in case of necessity, by I
the investment in the ships.

BIG DIVIDENDS ON
70 CENTS A TON PROFIT )'
Thompson, Towle & Company's ^
News Letter, speaking of the profits
of the Utah Copper Company, one of
the Jackling properties, and low grade ?
operators, says:
"An analysis of the last quarterly
report of the Utah Copper Co., de
velops the interesting point that from
2,113,080 tons of rock treiited, whfch -v
averaged 1.2165% copper, net earnings v
of $1/479,787 wore derived. This is
just 70c per ton profit. ( p
"Of course the low tenor of the rock
treated the past quarter was largely
responsible for this, but it is interest
ing to note the ability of the Utah (1
Copper Co. to develop such largo net s!
earnings when it gets. buLTOouier^tou U
profit out of the mining, transporta
tion and milling of a ton of rock. This A
Bhould likewise prove of considerable
interest to stockholders of the Alaska
Cold .Mines Co., as the original esti
mates of that company only promised n
a profit of 75c per ton of rock treat- a
ed." ? c
