NOME MEN MAKE
QUICK TRIP OUT
CORDOVA. Feb. 10.?J. A. Vint, a
mining man ot Seward pcttisula, who
arrived in Cordova on yesterday's late
train made a record trip from Nome
to the coast. Ho and Barry Kcown left
Nome with a string of good dogs and
mushed over tho trail to Fairbanks,
covering tho distance in nineteen trav
eling days. Mr. Keown remained at
Fairbanks for a few days, but as Mr.
ho came right through to CMtlna with
a team of five dogs, and covered the
distance in less than five, days, mak
ing the trip from Nome to Cordova
unddr twenty-four days, in tho hope
that ho wculd catch the Alameda, that
sailed from hero yesterday morning.
Mr. Vint is very optimistic about
tho Nome country. which he hclioves
is stll one of the best piacer camps
n Alaska. At present thcro arc fifty
three dredges on tho peninsula and the
results from practically all of them
have been satisfactory. Ho believes
Ncme will bo a big gold producer for
years to comc.
As ho Intends returning North la
March Mr. Vint left his dogs at Chit
iaa where ho will pick thorn up and
make the long overland journey back
to Nome.?(Tmos.)
DELEGATE WILL COME
NORTH NEXT SUMMER

FAIT B ANKS. Feb. 1.?That JamcB
Wickcrshara. tielegate from Alaska,
will probably spend tbo summer la
Fairbanks. th?? woH ?n a
letter from the delegate to his brother.
Ed. V.'ickersham. Thu delegate, how
ever. also states that If there Is an
extra session of congress, he will bo
compelled to remain In Washington
until that Is over, which would curtail
the length of time he would be allow
ed to remain north. It is understood
that Mrs. Wicker-ham will accompany
her husband north
Other advices rdccelved are to the
effect that the delegate will first go
to Juneau where he will be in attend
ance at the session of the legislature
It is presumed that he will then go
to Fairbanks.
Slaco Delegate Wickcrsham was
first elected to represent Alaska In
Congress In 1908, he and his wife have
spent very little time In Fairbanks,
their residence there being interspers
ed with long periods of absence on ac
count of the Delegate's official busi
ness at Washington.
The Empire guarantees its adver
tisers the largest circulation of any

A.TLI NMINING MAN :i
TALKS ATLIN MINES jv
Tom Klrkland, a mining man of At
in, sees bright prospects ahead for
:ho Atiin mining district In an inter- ^
.?low given the Skngway Alaskan he c
"Of the quartz properties in the y
listrict, the Engineer mine, the Kirk- ,
and group adjoining, and tho Law- *
son group, aro steadily increasing in y
.'alue and are all now woll past the ~
mccrtain stage. Tho Lawson group, f
md the Kirkiand and Brown groups,
n which I am interested, are show
n; up extremely rich ore. Out of b
L900 pounds of ore from tho Lawson
;roup over 12 ounces of gold were
jbtaincd, or $247, as this gold goes '
>19 to the ounce. The returns from
his ore wcro recovered by the use v
)f a 45-pound tost stamp mill run by
vator power on tho property. There ,,
iro about 60 or SO tons of tho same ^
:haracter of ore in sight 0
"All the abovo properties aro woll c
supplied with water for power pur- 0
joses and thoro is plenty of good j.
.imber in tho immodiate vicinity.
"Thore aro also some good low- t
trade quartz properties in the Atlin f
listrict. I own one on Pino creek, ,
tear Atlin. with a ledge moro than ^
100 feet in width which averages
S7.S0 per ton In tho cross-cut tunnel. "c
Some picked samples of the ore from
his ledge assayed as high as $517 v
>er ton. Thore is good water power n
>n tho property and millions of tons t
>f ore in sight. ,,
"Thore is one of tho best gold-sil
>er-Iead properties in British Columbia cl
>n Fourth of July creek, called tho
3ig Canyon group, owned by Tom ,,
Paughn and John Malloy."
"For confirmation or what I say in v
?egard to all of thoso properties I re- g
'er you to tho government report of -
Dr. Calrnes of the Dominion Geolog-(
cal survey.
"The placer miners on O'Donnell p
?Ivor and Spruce :reok? aro doing well
tnd making very largo cleanups. Other
:reeks in the district are also good
>roc.uccrs. Taking it all around, tho
U!Ia district is In a vory prosperous T
:ondition, notwithstanding tho unsat- .
s factory mining laws and othpr draw
iacl:s which the propector and mining .
nan have to contond with. '
"What tbiB northern country needs p
s government assistance In the devel
ipment" and advertising of Its vast and p
mmenseiy valuable minor&r resources.
"As it Is at present the prospector
?r miner is charged every time he
urns around.
"Special mining laws aro needed for
mr outlying mineral districts in Brit
sh Columbia to assist in their devel
opment, not laws to hold the men who
,ro working to that end hack."
>KAG WAY'S NEW WHARF s
TO BE IMPROVEMENT u
??
The new wharf that will replace D
ho old Moore wharf, belonging to the c
V'hlte Pass and recently burned, will P
e a great Improvement to the Gato
ray city. A largo forco of men aro
t work on the wharf, which la rapidly u
pproaching completion.
Superintendent V. I. Hahn, of th"
t'hlixj Pass, describing tho wharf to
he Skagway Alaskan, says: al
"The new wharf will have a straight ^
roni.'610 feet long with a railroad tc
racl: running down tho faco for a dls- M;
mco of 520 feet This track will
>avo tho bluff Just behind the small C<
arohouso on the approach and cross
le tourist.platform and .approach,
sachlng the faCo of the dock where
ae old office used to stand. It will Si
o used for unloading coal, machinery,
ay, and oats direct from boats to
ars, and tourist trains will run down
lero directly opposite boats.
"The new office- will be located
long the approach on the west side
ust north of whoro tho wharf gate
iras located; tho stock pons will all
10 located whoro tho north pons form'
rly wcro hut will be enlargefFso that
ho samo number of cattlo can be
mndlcd that uBcd to bo taken care
if at both sots of pens; JuRt south of
ho pens will bo a largo domestic
rarohouso 80 x 200 feet, with a bag
?ge room built on tho-north end ol
t; Just south of that will bo an opon
paco 125 foot long for lumbor, ma
hinery, and other miscellaneous
relght. below this will bo a bonded
rarehouBe SO x 100 foot
"Tho freight capacity of theso two
louses will bo nearly tho same as
hat of tho five old ones. They will
io set back 10 feet from the bluff side
if the wharf and tho scales placed ln^
Ido tho houses In the door-ways. This
rill facilitate tho loading of cars which
rill hereafter bo dono to much better
dvantago and with less switching,
'ho 10-foot gangways wtlf bo roofod
ver. This wharf will average a groat
r width than tho old ono on account
f tho straight front, tho old wharl
laving been rather crooked and hug
tng tho shore lino. For somo distance
ho new wharf front will bo about 35
ee't further out to sea and cross this
tretch wo will uso 110 foot croosotod

f from 30 to 34 feet.
"The two tracks in tho rear of the
rharf will bo placed on a solid fill
nd a 6-lnch water main run under

er of fire plugs and hose houses.
"Tho lighting system will ho up to
