July 11?Four Unit ed States revenue cutters have been ordered to go to the rescue of people reported to be in Jeopardy through the eruption of Mt. Katmat and oth er Alaska peninsula volcanoes. GRANBY'S ALASKA MINES PAY FROM BEGINNING) ?+? rhe Boston News Bureau, one of the I leading financial papers of the Fast, j commenting upon the Northern invest-1 inents of the Granby smelting people, says: "The Hidden creek property which the Grunby Consolidated put into com mission a short time ago has been making a slight profit from the first. This has strengthened confidence of the management, regarding the future prospects of this acquisition. With its three stacks running, the new smelter at Anyox has increased its tonnage to 1500 tons of ore daily, although by the end of the year, if not sooner, the plant should easily handle 2000 tons. "August had been named as the month in which the first refined copper from the new property would be ready for the market, but there is already available 1.500.000 pounds of Hidden creek product in addition to regular contribution from Grand Forks. "The company has under consider ation the acquisition of a quartz prop erty which carries copper, gold and I silver values. Some of the quartz has been used at Anyox as a flux for Hid den creek ores. Its value would be two-fold?as a flux and for its precious metals contents, which would reduce the cost of handling the material. "The fact that precious metals con tents of the Hidden creek ores average richer than had been anticipated and more than cover freight charge of blister copper to New York has been the primary factor In that property showing profits." + * > MARINE NOTES + + * The Mariposa is expected from the Westward tomorrow.

SKAGWAY ROAD SURVEY COMPLETED Engineer L. T. Merry, wba was de< tailed by the Alaska RoadtJommls sion to survey thtf proposed government wagon road from Skagway to the summit of the White Pass, has Just returned to Juneau after complet ing the work and is now preparing the maps and data which are to be submitted to the board. The road is designed to connect at the interna tional boundary line at the summit with the Canadian system of wagon roads reaching to tho Atlln section and to Yukon Territory as far south as Dawson. The new road will have a grade from Skagway to the BUinmlt averag ing less than flvo per cent and at no point in the entire dlstanco will it exceed eight per cent. An effort was made In making the present survey to keep outside the right of way of the White Pass and Yukon railroad as much as possible, therefore there are but three crossings made on the entire route, one at the present pub lic crossing at Clark's homestead, an other near mile No. 4, and the Anal crossing near the summit. The new route as located makes State street the point of departure from Skagway going northward, and at its terminus on the banks of Skag way river, the latter will be crossed by a standard pile bridge, the west end abutting on the U. S. military re serve adjoining the H. D. Clark home stead. now known as Sunnyside farm. The road according to the new sur vey will from this point follow the old "97 trail for a considerable distance, but deflects at the point where the old trail led toward Black lake, but keeps on the west side of Skagway river, however, to Roclcy Point, thus avoiding the long and torturous hill to Black lake and what is worse the abominable slide country through which the old Brackett road was built in '98, and also the climb over Porcu pine hill. ikn ?1.1 ltnA *t\n runi'wuifi IUC UiU lllic Ul IUO trail, the road will pass through the site of historic Llarsville, which Is now ti pleasant meadow, and then approach a sheer wall of granite which will en tall In road construction, either tres tle work or extensive cribbing for a distance. Clinging to Its granite cliffs the road continues on its way to a spot just a little North of Rocky Point when it crosses to the east side of the river and holds to that bank nearly to the summit, and then it again crosses to the west side. At mile post No. 7 of the White Pass and Yukon railroad, the real scenic value of the roadway becomes apparent and continues to grow more impressive in its beautiful confusion as the road winds its way through the rock-ribbed canyon of the Skagway to old White Pass City, once a wild rol- 1 licking hamlet living off the travelling 1 public, but now reduced to a huddle 1 of deserted and decaying cabins. The aspect continues to grow in Interest until the very summit Is reached. It i9 certain when completed to grow into great favor and become in time 1 a great thoroughfare for summer tourists In their automobiles. 1 The old Brackett road, which was 1 the cause of many serious mishaps to both man and beast in the early days following Its construction, followed the east side of the Skagway river 1 from Its town starting point to the 1 East fork of Skagway river and then swung across to Porcupine hill on a high bridge. After passing over the hill it again swung back to the east side at Rocky Point on another high 1 bridge. Much of the first part of the 1 road traversed a section that was 1 abominable for slides, for the most part, however, it clung to the walls ] of the river canyon and was built largely of corduroy in lieu of grading and ditching. Much of the timber on 1 the old road is still sound nfter fifteen 1 years of idleness and disuse. While making the present survey Mr. Merry and his assistants Ed Ach- ? ison and Herman Olson of Skagway, pitched their camp on the site of the ancient town of Llarsville. They had 1 delightful weather conditions for do ing the work which required about six weeks. ri.EARINft TITLE TO EBNER PROPERTY Deeds and assignments were placed on record this morning for the pur pose* of clearing up the title to the Kbner property and placing It in the Ebner Gold Mining company, which is the new Ebner company.
