General Manager Wheeler, who returned this week from the Outside, having left Chicago on April 19. stopping three weeks in Seattle after reaching the coast, says the outlook for tourist trav el to Alaska and the Yukon is very encouraging?that hundreds who come west to visit tho Panama Exposition at Frisco, will roako the northern trip and that a large number of those who come up tho Alaskan coast will visit tho Yukon before returning to their homes in the east. Mr. Wheeler has been busy since his arrival but says he his found all departments In just as go>>d condition as though he had been right here all the time, the various superintendents each being "Johnny on the spot" in his respective department. He also spoke of the successful work being carried on at the shipyards where the various steamers are being overhauled before being placed in commission and of how the big lower river steamers. Alaska and Yukon, have been succes fullv changed fiom wood into oil burn ners. Mr. Wheeler will probably be here for some time but in the event of anything developing in mining circles, will leave at once for the outside on important business* ? (Whitehorse Star.) COPPER OUTLOOK FOR WHITEHORSE WHITEHORSE. May 22 ?The lat-i est reports from the outside are that j copper Is now selling at-22 cents per ; pound and will probably reach thirty | cents within the next six weeks or two months, the supply of all Europe be] ing exhausted and the United States and Canada being practically the on ly countries where it can be produced at present. In connection with the above, it iaj in order to mention that General Man ager Wheeler of the W. P. & Y. R.. and General Manager Greenough of the Atlas Mining Company, both of whom returned Tuesday from the out-; side. have, as yet nothing definite] to announce about the resumption of work at the Pueblo but. like President Wilson in connection with the Europ ean war. are "watching and waiting" while hopeful that "the cat will Jump." In the meanwhile, there are several copper properties in this locality that could be very profitably operated with copper at even much less than the | price quoted.?(Whitehorse Star.) ? ? ? SEATTLE ASKED TO AID LIBRARY SEATTLE, May 21.?From Council. Alaska. 100 miles northeast of Nome, on the Seward peninsula, comes an ap peal to the Alaska bureau of the Seat tle Chamber of Commerce for help In restocking the library of the Arctic Brotherhood, which was. destroyed by fire last winter. The letter says: "Camp Council. No. 11. Arctic Bro therhood, has just experienced the misfortune of having a fire in its li brary. whfch destroyed the entire col lection of about 1,000 books. "The Arctic Brotherhood is the one fraternal organization of the little : mining camp of Council upon which devolves the duty of caring for the social and lterary needs of its people. I Good books and good magazines are ; needed very much during the long winter months and the A. B. library i lias heretofore supplied the need. Now ' it is gone and the scanty funds of the | camp will all be required to make the necessary repairs on the building its ; self, leaving very little, if anything, to provide a new kapply of books. "We know there must be hundreds, perhaps thousands of people who prob ably would only be too glad to 'con tribute good books from their own .11 | brary if only they knew our need. The difficulty is to get in touch with the ones who would help." The Alaska bureau submits this ap peal to the people of Seattle. The bu reau will be glad to receive books and magazines at its headquarters in the Chamber of Commerce on the eighth floor of the Central building, and will forward them to the Alaska mining camp near the Arctic Circle with Seattle's compliments.?(Seattle1 Post Intelligencer.) ? ? + ? ? + ?? + ? + ???!? ? ?!? + ?!? -!? 41 v ?> HAINES ITEMS ?> ? ? ? ? + ? + + 4t^4,4i + ?!? ?t> <? 4- + HAINES. May 22.? United States Commissioner J. J. Kennedy has had two gangs of men out fighting fire for the greater part of the last week; one over on-the Katzlbene river, and the other on the Haines peninsula below Mud Bay, and reports that now they have the fire under control. E. P. Wood, who has been up to the westward as far as Seward, where he went with a view of obtaining em ployment on the government railroad.' has returned to Haines, and says that in his opinion those In charge of the construction work are going at it in the right manner, and In the interests of the laboring man; that -they are not giving out any large contracts, but only small ones, which one. two three or four men can do by their own labor, by that means eliminating all chances for graft and the oppres sion of the men who do the work. Some one who did not have the fear of the law before his eyes, stole Mr. s Winterberger's bulletin off of the l church door. Mr. Winterberger 13 under the impression that some per- I son in favor of the saloons did it. but ; It matters not who the guilty one is. 1 it was wrong, and no fair minded ' person in Haines will uphold any such I work. Nothing is ever' gained by : wrong doing. H. O. Banta has gone up to his: < homestead to. establish actual resi-i clence. and will only be in Haines j ( from now on as a visitor. 1 E. A.

To night they play "Tipperary Mary," and tomorrow night their bill will bo King Dodo." The Sunday night bill has not been announced. This is the "wliylVfor their insom nia?Tuesday night they played in Prince Rupert, B. C.V and an hour af ter the show they were aboard the gasoline launch El Paso, bound for Kotchlkan. to fill an enegagemcnt at that place in time to catch the steam ship Mariposa on to Juneau. No time slept on the launch ride, according to "Mother" I-ang, guardian of tho flock, and when the boat finally reached Ketchikan it was almost time fop the curtain to rise on their performance. So on the stago they went and played and laughed and sang, while Tongass residents applauded and encored. Im mediately after the show they were hustled aboard the Mariposa and dis covered that the boat was crowded with passengers for the interior and the westward. Accordingly all but a few of tho kiddies slept in the socinl hall, or tried to sleop. Last night it was the same performance hero, rush ing to the theatre from the boat. Reports this morning from their ho tel say the kiddies lallcd to respond to the ringing of alarm clocks, and at noon several of them were still in Dreamland. GERMAN-AMERICANS BACK UP WILSON The New York World of May 17th contains the following: What would your organizations do If America and Germany became In volved In war? This question was put yesterday by The World to officials of German shooting societies In several of the larger cities. They replied that they, naturalized Americans, would stand by their adopted country, even to the point of bearing arms against their Fatherland. Their statements fol low: SIOUX CITY.. Ia.. ?"We will stand by the President to the last ditch, al though it should neccesitatc our tak ing up arms against our beloved Fa therland," Rudolph Beerend, Presi dent of Deutscher Kriegerbund von Nord Amerika, tho American branch of tho Sons of German Veterans-, who in their loyalty to Germany have been prominent features of the European war. made this statement today. He was speaking for more than 9,000 prominent German-Americans. "All of our members able to bear arms will enlist under the banner of our adopted country In case war is declared," he concluded. Philadelphia ? Emii Guenttier President of the Guenther Lumber company, a member of the Union league and a leading spirit in the Sclieutzen Verein, said today: "Expressions of loyalty to the Pres ident by citizens of German birth arc neither new nor unexpected. From the day that Pastor Muhlcnburg laid aside his clerical robes and stood forth in the full uniform of the Continental army, throughout the Civil War. when men of Gorman extraction were%found among officers and privates, to the present day?wherever our govern ment has been in need, there has nev er been a call unanswered by the former sons of the Fatherland and their descendents." "Let us not speak of war," said Franz Ehrich, jr., counsel for the Pennsylvania branch of the German American Alliance, which in this city has a membership of 45,000. "I do not believe the United iJtatos will be come involved in war, but it it does, German-Americans will be found fight ing for the land of our adoption, shoul der to shoulder with every true citi zen of the United States.' "Every American should heartily support the President's declaration," Mr. Ehrllch continued. CINCINNATI, O.?-Herman Rocick er laughed when asked what he though the attitude of the German shooting societies of the city would ; be in case of a war with Germany. j Mr. Roeinker is "king" of ono of ] the largest of tlicso organizations and i 1 member of four others, one of these , being composed of former soldiers, :'j ?We arc all America now," said Mr. i Roeickcr. "We have been naturalized i md have sworn to uphold America, i rhat is what we would do, stand by " jur country. j "We have nothing to do now with I Scrmany. There are at least 1,000 > nembers of German shooting socie les in this city, and i know all of I hesc men are loyal Americans, who ( vould aid this country in case of a 1 var with Germany." ( CHICAGO?Officors of tho Chicago Schuetzcn Verein, the only German shooting corps in Chicago, said it would he absurd to suppose that their organization would not support the United States to a man in the ovent of difficultly with Germany. Circuit Judge Gcorgo Kersten. President of tho club, said that numorous enlist ments might bo expected among the younger members. "Above all," said Emil Dcmme, the treasurer of tho organization, "wo are Americans. The United States Btands first in our hearts, for it is the land we have chosen as our home. To a man wo will support Prcsidont Wilson in whatever ho does." Similar opinions were expressed by Police Lieut. Max Heidclmcir, Comp troller of the organization, and former Sheriff Zimmer, who was an official of the Scheutzen Verein. MALTED MILK FOR MADISON SCHOOL MAIDS MADISON. "Wis., May 22.? About 141,200 malted milks are consumed annually by the Btudonts of tho Uni versity of Wisconsin, at a cost of $14,120, enough money to buy a good meal for 56,480 people. This is not a mere guess, but the carefully com piled figures submitted by dealers in the University district. The straws used in the malted milk if placed in a direct line would roach 13 miles. The malted milk consumed would fill a reservoir of 13,000 gal lons Over three tons of the dry pow der is consumed in a year. Figures show that 1,040,000 cigar ettes are consumed annually by stu dents, at a cost of $7800. Tho cigar ettes, if placed in a direct line, would reach around Lake Mondota twice. Thero is enough paper in the cigar ettes consumed to make a library of 1300 books of pages each. _ PANAMA'S INFLUENCE ON TRADE R6UTES It Is impossible to forenst definitely what will be the changes in trade routes mado by the opening of the Panama Canal, the event which is now being celebrated by the Panama Pa cific Exposition at San Francisco, cer tain factors may be outlined, howev er. which will operate to the great ad vantage of commercial Interests. It may bo that our greatest return from the canal will then bo found in a rapid development of the western and mountain states, or Increased mil itary effectiveness, rather than in a capacity traffic through the waterway. On the other hand, when wo strike a balance to show the "net" of a de cade's expercince, our foreign trade may havo found the shorter route a key to long desired markets in Asia, Western South America and Oceania; the trade of Western Europe and Eng land may have paid us an attractive toll in order to roach, by way of tho canal; Canada, the Pacific States and points in tno rar East. It 1b true that distances by water ? between many important markets are shorter than before the canal existed. Eight thousand miles have heen"Top ped from the coast-to-coast voyage. China is now about equidistant from New York and London by sea. Port In south eastern Australia, New Zea land and Japan are nearer New York than London. With African, Wost In iian and Carribean ports can bo reached mqre quickly by vessels sail ing from the Pacific coast. Nearly six thousand miles have been clipped off the water route from Liverpool to Vancouver. The Atlantic Coast ship pers can make now records to cer tain trade contcrs in Asia and on the ivestern coast of South America. But the workday buslnoss of carry ng the world's goods is not concorn ?d alone with the shortest distance PCtwoen two points and the making of ;imc records. A good freighter usual y costs more than half a million dol ars. Interest on this investment is jarned by keeping the holds full of 'reight?arfd often the longest way af ords the most opportunities to pick ip cargoes. There may be moro profit gained in he end when the sailings orders spe* :ify Aden, Calcutta, Titlcorin. Colom )o, Madras, Karlkai, Pondicherry, jingapore, Manila and Hong Kong han when they name only Hon? Kong, t is the comparative profitableness of he alternative routes under working :onditions which must finally dccido iow the trade routes will be shifted >y the Panama Canal. Changes arc already under way, | lowever. During August, September I nd October of 1913 fifty-six per cent, f the freight that left California for s; he Atlantic Coast went by rail. Sta isticsjindicate that a year later, dur ng the same three months of 1914, he railroads obtained but thirty-nine er cent of this trade. Already sail- j to Shanghai and Yokohama by way of the Panama Canal. KETCHIKAN HAS TWO NEW COUNCILMEN Old facia# disappeared and new ones took their places at the councH ckam wns unanimously elected by the Conn J. Henoglmn's fnlluro to qualify. When Mr. Walkor had been sworn in, Geo. M. Chesnoy tendered his resignation an councilman owing to the fact that he had moved to Goorgo Inlet and was thus unable to continue in the office. The resignation was accepted and an advisory ballot taken to select his successor. Fivo votes were cast, P. 0. Shark receiving two. Mrs. W. A. Bryant, one, W. C. Strong one, and W. H. Patching one. A discussion fol lowed, on who could bo considered as available timber for the ofllcd, after which a second ballot was taken, that resulted In the unanimous choice for Mr. Patching, and lie wns declared elected.?(Ketchikan Miner.)
