ITALIAN CONSUL
MAKES QUICK TRIP
FAIRBANKS, July 20.?Making the
trip from San Francisco to Fairbanks
in 12 days actual traveling time was
the record made by Ferdlnando Daneo,
royal consul general of Italy for the
Pacific coast, wly> arrived here early
last Monday morning and departed
Thursday evening on the steamer Ta
nana. This Is declared to bo the most
rapid trip ever made between the Gold
en Gate and Interior Alaska.
Including stop-overs, the trip made
by Consul Daneo was 15 days, but he
was detained by business matters and
other things for a total of three days
throughout the trip. Ke waB accom
panied by F. M. Andreanl, of the leg
al department of the Italian consulate
in San Francisco, who served as sec
retary for the consul.
The purpose of Mr. Daneo's visit
to Alaska was to look into the labor
situation here with a view of deter
mining the opportunities for Italian la
borers. now in other sections of the
West, for work when the construction
of the government railroad Is started.
He is not of the opinion, however,
that many Italian people will come to
Alaska to live, as he thinks they pre
fer a Southern climate like that of
their own native country.
Mr. Daneo's official district takes in
California, Oregon, Washington. Alas
ka and Nevada. He explained after
arriving here that in Oregon and
Washington are many Italians that
have been employed on railroad work,
having given much satisfaction In that
capacity, and he wanted to bo prepar
ed to answer any questions concerning
the possibility of their getting work in
Alaska on the new railroad. With the
except of a short stop In Juneau,
Mr. Daneo and Mr. Andreanl will re
turn directly to San Francisco.
"This is a very beautiful and inter
esting country," said Mr. Daneo before
departing, "and I believe that there
| are great agricultural possibilities
here. The trip has been a revelation
to me. and I have enjoyed every hour
of it. in spite of the difficulties of the
automobile ride from the coast. ?

FAIRBANKS RIFLEMEN
TO HAVE TOURNEY
?4?
FAIRBANKS. Aug. 1. ? Somewhat
later than in former years, the mem
bers of the Tanana Valley Rifle club
will meet in the near future to arrange
a schedule for the number of con
tests that are to be held at the range
this summer. A number of trophies
are to be contested for. and the offi
cers of the club expect to Bee some
interesting matches.
Owing to the fact that mosquitoes
have been more troublesome at the
range this year than in the past few
seasons, the shoot has been post
poned for a few weeks. Now that
the new company of soldiers has
arrived at Fort Gibbon, it is stated
that a number of the members of the
club are anxious to arrange a match
the same as held the last two years,
and invitations may bo issued to the
army men.

TALKS OF ALASKA
COPPER IN SEATTLE
SEATTLE, Aug. 5.?Ambler J. Stew
art, vtco president of tho Alaska Cop
per Corporation, of New York, which
owns about a thousand acreB of cop
per bearing land In Alaska, has Just
returned from a three weeks' trip to
the company's mining district and Is
stopping at the New Washington on
his way home.
Mr. Stewart has with him several
specimens of the two kinds of ore pro
duced by the corporation's mines,
some of It Is a beautiful blue bornlte
and some of sort of fool's gold, known
as chalcopyrite, sprinkled through var
ious kinds of rock In bright yellow
patchos.
"The copper mines in the United
States yield an ore which runs from
1 to 4 per cent in copper taken off the
vein. This of ours runs from 40 to 70
per cent, and at the Tacoma smelter
they say that the bornlte is the easiest
copper ore In tho world to reduce.
"Our mines are on tho Kushkulana
river, a tributary of the Chltlnn a short
distance from where It flows into the
Copper river. J. P. Morgan has prom
ised to build a railroad to it In case
the production warrants. We have
taken out about $15,000,000 in three
years, so you can see that the produc
tion warrants It, but wo are going to
build our own railroad, eighteen miles
long, into tho heart of tho district. Wo
are taking out 200 to 300 tons of ore
a day, which is of course low as com
pared to the big mines In America,
but the amount of metal we get from
it compares very favorably with any
of them."?Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

FAIRBANKS SOCIALISTS
There Is lack of harmony among
Fairbanks Socialists. The Alaska So
cialist, published at Fairbanks, has
declared war upon the methods that
were adopted to securo the nomination
of Jack Brooks, and Bays Lena Morrow
Lewis used "machine" methods and
violated the secret ballot.
The Socialist says:
"The action of Lena Morrow Lewis,
in compelling the members of the So
cialist party to write their names on
the back of the ballot, while voting on
tho referendum for candidate for Del
egate to Congress, has been severely
condemned by many Socialists and oth
ers, and it is said that a great number
of them have stated that they will not
abide by tho result of the corrupt
method used by her to carry out her
apparent purpose?tho nomination of
Brooks.
"Lena Morrow Lewis, who if she
could get enough people to join h'or
machine, would then, through such ma
chine become political boss of Alaska
and we would then have the same kind
of government, probably, In Alaska
that they had in the National office of
the Socialist party about 1910. We
want no political bosses in Alaska,
not even Socialist bosses."
On the other hand. Socialists of
Fairbanks have passed resolutions con
demning and repudiating the Alaska
Socialist.

the chief instrument in the selling of
the stock of the company.
