GREAT IMPOUNDING DAM
HOLDS TREMENDOUS ENERGY
Tho impounding dam of the Alaska
Gastineau Mining company at Salmon
creek has already caught and is hold
ing 10,000 acre-feet of >tfater, half the
capacity of the reservoir created by
the construction of the dam. Water
to a depth of 118 feet is backed up
against the great concreto wall.
This on account of the elevation
gives the water in storage a valuation
of 10,000 kilowat months or equal to
a thousand horse power per month if
this sourco was used exclusively to
turn the great pelton wheels of the
two power stations operated by the
company, but the natural flow of the
stream furnishes enough yet and tho
storage will continue to Increase.
Mr. Thane said this morning that
there is already more water in the
reservoir than they had hoped to ac
cumulate this season after tho com
pletion of the great dam.

INTERIOR LOOKS
GOOD TO RUGGLES
The Hcaley river strike soeniB to bo |
genuine, says D. M. Ruggles, Alaska
representative of the Northwost Min
ing Journal who has Just arrived In
Juneau from a tour of the Interior
country. "I saV six boilers In tho
country that are^belng usod for pros
pecting. and I saw three holes to
bedrock, all of which contained pay,"
said Mr. Ruggles. "There nre not a
great many In the camp, perhaps 20
all told, but they arc all working."
The Hoaley rlvor diggings are about
half way between McCarthy and the
Tanana Crossing. Mr. Ruggles states
that there Is n well defined rumor of
another new strike on an unknown
stream lying somewhere between the |
sources of the Little Delta and a tri
butary of tho Susltna country.
This reported strlko is In a section
of the country where some Fairbanks
people had been prospecting for the
past three years and about 20 tons
of supplies are now being sent into
that particular section. Machinery
will be sent in also if tho trails are
In condition and the machinery can
be had.
Coming back over the trail, Mr. Rug
gles met several men coming out of
the Chlsana diggings who had good
pokes of dust, and they seemed to be
satisfied.
lieorge W. Sins uuu a guuu season
on Vnldez Creek, according to Mr.
Rugglcs, and has his hydraulic plnnt
installed nnd working. During the 30
days that it operated after being set
up this season, the cleanup indicated
that next season's output will reach
$300,000.
Mr. Rugglcs brings optimistic re
ports from the Fairbanks section. Ho
says that tho gold output for the
Fourth division ? Including Ruby will
equal, If not exceed $4,000,000, for the
season Just closing, nnd thut there Is
moro gold yet to be mined in the
placers of the Fairbanks section than
that part of the country hns already
produced.
Tho prospects are also good, accord
ing to Mr. Rugglcs and all the coun
try needs to go ahead is capital to
develop tho mineral resources, espec
ially tho quartz properties. The U.
S. Smelting and Refining Company,
he says, have a man on the ground,
investigating conditions and proper
ties.
The Kantishna country, Mr. Rugglcs
declares, will develop into a produc
ing section in both plnccr and quartz
as soon as conditions arc right to
make development possible.
Mr. Ruggles Is a guest at the Hotel
Cain while In Juneau and says that
he Is pleased with tho development
that is going on in this section. He
expects to leave for tho South soon.

GREATEST SHOPPING
PORTS OF THE WORLD
THANE, Oct. 20?To the Editor
Please give the names of the three
greatest shipping ports of the world
for tho year 1913 and the amount of
tonnage passing through each.
A.
Differences in the manner of meas
urement makes it difficult to answer
tho questions categorically. The
latest available figures are: (1) New
York, 1913, 28,834,780 tons entered and
cleared; (2) Hamburg, 1911, 27,404,
989 tons; (3) Antwerp, 1911, 26,656,480.
Rotterdam, with 21,852,676 tons Is
fourth, and London. 20,977,223, tons,
and Hongkong, 20,490,520 tons rank
fifth and sixth. Owing to the differ
ences in systems of measurement, one
authority places the first three ship
ping ports in their order as New York,
Antwerp and London.
In the value of the exports and Im
ports the order Is changed, as fol
lows:
(1) New York, again taking first
rank, with $1,966,226,617; (2) Hamburg
$1,960,779,855; (3) London, $1,866,930,
782; with Liverpool, $1,816,983,279, a
close fourth, and Antwerp, $1,120,047,
300 completing the billion dollar group.
