ALASKA IMPRESSES INDIANA MEN T. W. Engiehart, a Gary, Indiana, capitalist. A. Z. Olson, mining engineer from the same place and G. W. Pos ter. the well known Alaska mining man. who is heavily interested In prop erties at Port Houghton, have been visiting Juneau and were gue3ts of the Occidental H&toi. while in the city. They just ran up to have a look at the capital of Alaska, so thoy said and were too pressed for time to in spect the mines, but they all. declare themselves mightily impressed with Juneau and the mining resources back of the place. They are coming again next summer. "This Alaska country Is great," said Mr. Olson, ."and is little understood. When we left Chicago the snow was - lying on the ground to a depth of two feet and the thermometers regis ? terod several degrees below xero. Here ." we find it warm and comfortable. Al aska has a great future. Its minora! wealth is perhaps greater than that of all the States combined. There ? are but a handful of people hero com paratively." Mr. Foster is vice-president of the Houghton Bay Mining Company which owns the mines in which he is Inter ested. There has been a considerable amount of development work done on the property. More than $20,000 hav ing been expended in this way. It is a copper-gold property. Mr. Foster has been giving the proporty his at tention for anumber of years. It is probable that it will be taken over by Eastern capital soon. Mr. Englehart says that he likes the country so well that he wants to come again and stay longer. He is impressed with the mining possibili ties and thinks Juneau will be a great city. We are at your service day and night, Butler-Mauro & Co.. 06 Front St. ? 13-15-tf : : 1 ? " .?

He told hi: story or. the French Lino plor yesterday. "I was born at Br^st and served In the Marine Corps'of tho French navy," ho said. "Eight years ago 1 went to Canada ar-d bccamo a fui trapper, buying ray supplies from the Hudson Bay Company and selling, my furs to them. At ijort Providence, where tho company has a trading sta tlon, there Is a tribe <if Indians, whose chief's namo Is Peter Squlrrol. The only other whito men besides mysoll are tho company's two or threo agents Married Indian Chief's Daughter. "I liked tho life it tho forest, got a government lot, bilS a log house and established my line of traps. II is a wild, cold counjry, but there it good money there, and my broth-or In-law last winter fathered ?1G,00C worth of furs and sjld them, but in tho spring ho found himself $600 In debt to the company'. "Peter Squirrel has 1 daughter, Mag dalene, the pretties lidlan girl In the province. I was lonejy and far away from my people. Sie was good tc look upon, and bright, and n good i housokcoper. Wo were married o ! year ago. Then word camo that my | country was at war. I was far out ; on my line of trapt and was making ! my way back to tie cabin homo, at which place I expected to find a baby when I arrived. inen, wuu uio van iw tuum uuun and fight ringing in my heart, I foil ill in one of my hull on the trap line. My Indian assistant found mo there Ho came seventy-five miles along the routo I should have covered to find me. Ho mado mo as comfortablo as ho could and set out for tho Canadian Northwest ^iounted Police, 300 mlloa away, to corno and look out for mo, as I had inflammation of the lungs. "A mounted pollcoman came, bring' ing an interpreter with him lest 1 could not spoak English. Thrco days tlioy doctored me, left medicines, and went. But before they wont they found a little black fox In one of my traps and I gavo it to the interpreter for his trouble. It was worth $600 to him. Then I set out for home. "Thero my wife said that if my country called me I must go, though just then of all times she needed my comfort and attention, alono in the forest as she was, and expecting tho baby. With blanket?, a gun, bannock broad, flour and dried moose meat I started up the Mackenzie river to ward tho south until I mot voyagers paddling the way I wanted to go. They gave mo lifts over some of tho bad places, which 1 was grateful for, as I had traveled 1,700 miles to walk to get to the nearest railroad station. Their lifts made my walking-trip on ly 1,300, as I figure :t out. Walked Ice-Botnd River. "It was 600 miles of walking to Fort Chlpeywan on Athabaska Lake, The Ice closed tho river, and I had to walk this, following the windings of tho river to Great Slave.Lake, and then tho Athabaska river to Fort Chineywan. "Here I found another Frenchman, Joseph GIraud. thirty years old, a voyager, who was on his way to Join tho army In France. He also had heard of the war verj late, and was anxious to get on. Tlurc Commander A. H. L. Mullor of tht Royal North Northwest Mounted Police, gave us documents, testifying that wo were making every effort to reach our col ors. "It was whilo at Fcrt Chlpewyan that voyngerB starting a day after 1 did arrived with news that my wife had a fine big son. I never felt so like turning back, but I came on with GIraud, discarding our guns and ev erything I didn't need. At night we lay down on the snow wrapped in blankets, with our feet to the fire and slept like tirod dogs. "With tho river closed, the rafts men and voyagers gone, we nearly wore oursolvcs out. One day when our flour and meat were all gono and with no gun, two moose calmly walk ed4 Into camp add looked us over. But at last by dint of fishing and trapping to live, wo reachod the little railroad station, a hundred miles north of Ed monton, Alberta, and took tho first train cast. We wero In Montreal on Thursday and Friday morning and got hero today. Going across to my country from hero seems to be but a step or two after what we have been through. "If I livo I shall bo back on the Mackenzie after the war, for I want to see that little fellow. My wife has taken him and gone home to her folks at Fort Smith, I expect. It Is i wonderful country up there, and once tho lure of tho trapper's life gets into your blood you will be drawn back to it In spifo of*1 yourself." 25 per cent discount on all holi day goods.

GUGGENHEIMS BUY INTO BROAD PASS SEWARD, Doc. 21.?That the Gu* gonhcims havo made a big deal by which thoy have acquired largo in- ' toreats ? in the Broad Pubs country, and. that the great smelting firm is about to. doyolop that section ou a very extensive scalo is the informs tipn which comes from sources which are believed to be reliable. It is nlso stated, but not positively, that the purchasers of the property of the Wells boys aro really the Guggenheims and that Tom Aitkon who was mentioned as the purchaser, represented them. Pooplo who bolievo this to be true otpto that not only, will this deal ex erpiso a most Important influence on! the mining conditions in this region! but that it will also have a most im portant bearing on the railroad ques tion for reasons that can be readily understood when It Is remembered that trancpnrtation to the Broad Pass country will require an outlet in this neighborhood. Altkcn is a wealthy man on his own account but the well known desire of the Guggenhcims to made deals through middlemen Is said to be the cause of their using him in this capacity. One fact which bears out this statement is that Aitken nov cr visited the Broad Pass himself and It Is certain that ho never purchased for himself property which he himBelf Lad never seen although ho cc/aid easily havo visited It. The fact is that Aitken met Engineer Newsome who, it is well known, represented the Guggenhcims here, indeed it was so well known that ho was the Gug genheim man that for him to try to mnko the deal would let everyone know who wa3 back of It, and the last thing the Guggenheims want to do, for obvious reasons, is to let anyone know that they have any finger in those mining deals. But one thing is about as certain as anything could be which is not proven by documents and that is the Guggenhcims arc now in the Broad Pass country to stay, it has been learned since the story of the deal for the Broad Pass prop erty was published that Mr. Aitken has really gone to Skagway and thence to the interior a3 he said he was go ing to do. He has gone to Dawson to got a dredge to place on property on Candle Crook in tbo ICuskokwim. The fact that he did not go to Broad Pass after making the deal may bo regarded as very significant?(Sew ard Gateway.) , r3 A Cliii A Al'io'i-tdy r'iro-l'ruuf Hotel H |!
