MAURICE LEEHEY NOT
INTERESTED IN ROUTES
A letter received from Alaurico D.
Leehey, the well known mining law
yer of Seattle, who has an extensive
Alaska law practice, and who was at
torney for the original Chlsana loca
tors who won their suits recently
at Cordova, say* he is not interested
In any particular route for Alaska's
Several days ago it was published
in various Alaska newspapers that
Mr. Leehey had purchased 15 town
lots at Seward and that he believed
that the Alaska railroad would be
built from that place.
Mr. Leehey. writing under date of
April 21 from Seattle, says:
To the Editor:?In a recent issue
you mentioned my purchase of town
lots at Seward, and added that I
believe Seward " will be the terminus
of the railroad to the Alaska interior."
I am not vain enough to suppose
that anyone cares what I believe on
that subject. Out I fear the state
ment may cause some people to. mis
construe my activity in behalf of Al
aska railway legislation, and perhaps
also that of my associates in the Al
aska Bureau with whom I spent some
months in Washington doing what
little we could to secure the early
passage or tne Dill, i nope nououy
will believe 1 had or have any special
interest whatever in any particular
route, or any interest other than the
general benefits of Alaska develop
The lots mentioned were really
deeded me in trust to carry 'out a con
tract by which a law suit was set
tled. It was only natural that your
Seward correspondent should assume
it to be a purchase, based on such be
lief. but I have no information and
have taken no interest In the dis
cussion of the merits of different
Yours very truly,
MAURICE D. LEEHEY.
Representative Humphrey of Wash
ington is occupying a good deal of the
time of the House with his partisan
speeches. Possibly he aspires soon
to be in the class of Representative
Mann of Illinois, the minority leader,
who seems to be persuaded that parti- j
san bitterness aud recklessness of
speech are the best proof of good
generalship.?New York World.

WHITEHORSE AS FOX
Whitehorse, from present indica
tions. gives promise of becoming the
center of one of the biggest industries
of the^ present age, that of fox breed
ing and raising. Already one com
pany has been formed, backed by a
number of the most promncnt men in
tKsv TAMUAM. ~ .. S~
tut- icuuur^i ttiiu arrKu^cuit'iKB ait: >
under way for the formation of an
other which will likely be followed by
others in the future. Showings made
by similiar industries in the east, New
Brunswick. Prince Edward Island and
Massachusetts, prove the fox business '
to be one of the best paying of all
modern industries. Whltehorse is
admirably situated for the fox busi- 1
ness, being practically in the center
of the greatest fur country on the 1
American continent. The location of
a number of fox farms at or near
Whitehorse will prove a great stimu-1
lus to local trade.?Whitehorse Star.

SHOWS BIG GAINS
The Boston News Bureau, one of
the leading financial papers of the
country, commenting upon the show
ing for March and indications for
April for the Utah Copper company,
one of Col. D. C. Jackllng properties,
"Preliminary figures indicate that f
for the month of March the Utah Cop- ?
per Co. registered a new high record J
output at 12,700,000 pounds. This is
almost 1,000,000 pounds larger than
any previous month and is at the rate
of over 150,000,000 pounds per an
num. It goes without saying that
this production is vastly in excess of
the output shown by any single mln-:
lug operation in the world.
"The company is now beginning to(
reap the benefits of the advance in J
the stripping work, and it is more
than likely that the present month of
April will also record a very large out

excessively large tonnage treated, but J
to the better grade of ore now being!

is being made.

"Foreninst the Government."
Leader'Jim Mann ought to remove
himself from out of the Washington at
mosphere for a time. Mr. Mann de
clares that the surest way to rehabili
tate the Republican party is to pre
sent a solid front against the Wilson
administration. In other words, no
matter what the issue, no matter
where the right lies, it will help the
Republican party if it will line up sol
idly against the Democratic adminis
tration. Mr. Mann has yet to learn
that the "old stuff" in politics no long

now permitting the leaders to do their
thinking for them.?Lincoln Common
