SALE TO GOVERNMENT
SAfE WAY OUT
BOSTON'.?Should the United States
government aecept the otter of the
Alaska Syndicate for tho sale of .the
Copper River & Northwestern Rail
road, the Morgan-Guggenheim Inter
ests. who have put more than $25,000.
000 Into tho project will at hut find
a safe way out of their railroad in
vestment.
Tho syndicate also owns tho Bonan
za mine, probably the high grade
world, and several smnller coper prop
erties. The only returns which havo
come to the members of the syndi
cate have been in the dividends paid
by ttap Kennecott Mines Co.. the $2.
500,000 corporation which owns and
operates the copper properties. Last
year this copper dividend amounted
ord follows:
1914 ... .... $1,000,000
1912 3.000.000
Total 5,000.000
Proceedings looking to a sale to the
government have gone no further than
the tentative stage. J. P. Morgan ia
behalf of the Syndicate, of which he
Is a member, has takeo up the sub
ject of selling tho Copper River road
to the government with Franklin K.
l-aue. secretary of tho Interior.
The Syndicate has always been di
vided equally between tho Guggen
helms and J. P. Morgan & Co.. al
though each of those interests is. un
derstood to have disposed of some of
iheir holdings.
The Bonanza mine has lately came
across another find of 70 per cent.!

coppor ore. thereby adding greatly
to Its value, Tho property also con
tains low grado matorlal, but with the
70 per cent ore as a sweetener, the
results prove very satisfactory and
most profitable to tho company.
The Coppor River Railroad, whlci
was built by tho Syndicate, stands to
day tho most costly railroad In tht
world, as approximately $25,Q00.00(
was spent upon a very small mileage
The pllroad has an authorized Issut
of 150,000,000 bonds which were "dls
t.-ibuted to some extent, but upot
which no Interest has ovor been paid
In fact, not until the past year did
the railroad earn Its operating charg
There was produced In Alaska dur
lng 1914 approximately 20,S50,00(
pounds of copper ore. against 21.659,
000 pounds in the preceding year, th<
bulk -f which .was contributed by tht
Kcnnecott Co. Tho output would havt
been greater but for the extremelj
lov. prices which prevailed from mid
year. Until the first of August sever
copper mines were operating in Alas
ka, hut at tho close of the year, foui
wore still turning out the metal. Plant
had been made for the Inauguration
of operations of two more producers
but the inability to finance tho prop
erties. forced the abandonment or tht
proposed plans. Had they matured
there would have been nine producing
mines In tho year end. comparing with
seven In mid-year.?(Boston News Bu

EXCHANGE GREETINGS
One of the most tangible evidences
. of an g 1 o-Amor lean, amity provaleut in ;
the Northland was manifested yestor- ,
? day by the exchange of greetings bo- ]
, twoon tho govornors of the Tcrrltor- .
. ics of Alaska and Yukon. Governor
Strong of Alaska wired greetings from
Juneau to Commissioner Black at ,
Dawson. Commissioner Black lm- -
mediately sent back a happy roply. j
The two messages follow: ,
From Governor Strong.
"Juneau, Alaska. Dec. 31, 191-1.
I (via Eagle.) i
Governor George Black,
Dawson, Y. T.
Alaska- etxends best wishes i
to hor neighbor for n happy 1
and prosperous New Year.
STRONG,

) From Commissioner Black.
"Dawson, Y. T., Jan. 1. 1015.

; greeting# and best wishes for
a happy and prosperous Now
| Year, which conditions for
Yukon are dependent upon the
; success of the arms of Great
Britain and her Allies.
GEORGE BEACK.
?' Commissioner."
NEED OF ROAD FUNDS
SHOWN AT SEWARD
The urgency of Col. Wilds P. Rich- ,
? ardson's recommendation for a larger '
' appropriation for road and trail lm
; provement in Alaska is emphasized in
i the following article from the Seward '
i Gateway:
"With Just two hundred dollars arJ ''
improvement could be" made on the
Seward-Idltarod trail that would make
an Imracnso change for the better. This
i% the consensus of opinion of those
who have recently boon over It. The .
worst place on the trail according to '
J. E. Riley Is thtt from Indian Creek
divide to Eagle river, a stretcn 01 ov
er twenty miles. On that part of the
trail there are dead fails for every
twenty feet which make travelling ox
i ceedingly difficult but which could be
removed with a very small oxpense.
In many places it isjiecossary to un
hitch dogs from tho sleds. In some
places the Willows have not even been
cut. "An Indian going out to shoot
moose would make a better trail than
that" said Mr. Riley; Ali the travel
ers agice that Seward ought to have
something done at once."

THE 1915 RESOLUTIONS.
Prom tho Pittsburgh Press.
Somo people hnvo just ordinarily
good memories, and othors still re
moinber their New Years resolutions.
From the Columbus Dispatch.
Say. let's quit talking about the
breaking of resolutions. Everybody
ought to do ?wliac he can to help the
maker keep them, if they aro good.
From tho Birmingham Age-Herald.
Men who signed the pledge January
L are already beginning to eye the
:aicndar with feverish looks.
From tho Buffalo Commercial.
Probably a lot of people who made
Kew Year resolutions will soon be
seeking an excuse for breaking them
from the fact that the lat fell on Fri
vrom the Richmon Times-Dispatch.
Just now the height of imagination
.vould bo to think that the condition

Aberdeen Decides.
Once more, this time nuthoratlvoly,
it is said, Aberdeen has Joined the
Northwestern league, taking the Port
land-Ballnrd franchlso. Citizens of
Aberdeen, Hoqutnm, and Montpsano,
'oil Grays Harbor, aro said to have put
up the money and a team will be put
? Nelson on the Warpath.

'Whitted Is Traded.
The Braves have parted company
with George Whitted. an untried pitch
er, and come cash, in return for Sh'er
f wood Mageo.
Battle- March Sixth.
! According tr advices from El Paso,
the Jack Johnson-Jess Willard cham
pionship battle will take place at Juar
ez. March 6. That is only about six
.weeks off. Johnson already has start
ed training for the bout, but Willard
i continues to display unusual inactivity
; for a person who hopes to. omorgo
successfully from a most difficult task.
Tho chnuces arc that the fight-lov
! ing public will display very ittlo inter
est in the match. Thero is no way to
figure that Willard stands a ichancc
to win. There is nothing In his record
to create tho impression that he has
oven a right to figure on mooting the
champion.
Wiliard has fought twonty-flve
times. He started In 1911, yet ho lias
met but ono opponent of anything like
class, and that was Gunboat Smith,
who got the decision over him after
twenty rounds of milling. How Wil
lard can bo figured to have a chance
with Johnson if the colored chumpion
is anything like himself is hard to
understand.
Mack's Share 40 Per Cent.
Contrary to general belief, Connie
Mack only owns 40 per cent, of the
stock in tho Athletics. Uncle Bon
Shlbc owns a like nmount and his son
Tom, owns 20 per cent. Mack, how
over, is given free rein in doing about
anything he cares to do in running the
business in the characteristic Mack
way.
Reds Perking Up.
It begins to look like tho Reds mean
business. Manager Herzog is busy
these days, and claims to have both
Catchers Dooin and Wingo in honor
bound. Shcchan, a second baseman
from the Central Imaguc, has been
purchused and will be ono of tho now
faces in the Cincinnati team when it
staras South for Spring practice. Oth
er trades and deals are pending.
Welsh vs. Griffiths.
Froddio Welsh, lightweight cham
pion of tho world, is matched to meet
Johhnie Griffiths, holder of the Aus
tralian title, in a twelve-round bout at
Akron, O., Feb. 1. Griffiths will be
required to make 135 pounds at C
Vanderbltt Race at Fair.
On Washington's birthday, twe
days after tho opening of the Panama
, Pacific International Exposition, will
take place tho International Vanderbill
cup race at San Francisco. Five dayc
later, on February 27th, the second
great auto race for world'B records
the Grand Prix, is scheduled at th.<
same place.
. Thus, the Panama-Pacific Expos!
tion will start right from the juini
with ono of the biggest thrills whicl

months' life of an exposition, which
Its projectors stato, is the biggest oi
all expositions ever attempted.
Tho racetrack Is laid down in c
course which curves in and out foi
two miles of tho exhibits of palaces
gardons and pavilions of forty-twc
participating nations and forty-three
states and territories. It is a most rc
markable and spectacular course.

Team of Youngsters.
Tho Phillies, by swapping Lobcrt
?for Domaree, Adams and Stock, com
olcte their plan of putting a team of |
youngsters in the field, on tho same 6
plan as Connie Mack has adopted. t
Devore'c Motto. E
The motto of Josh Devoro, accord- j
ing to George Stalllngs, is: "I would J
rather bo the mascot to a winner than ]
a bench warmor to a loser." Josh is J
to a certain extent a bench warmer to j
tho Boston Braves. He gets Into the 5
game only rarely, yet StaUings would j
be loath to let him go. '<>,
