THREE VIEWS OF I
FAIRBANKS AS A
QUARTZ DISTRICT
The Fairbanks Times presents three
views of the Fairbanks region as a j'
Quartz district?one by the "Optimist" j
one by the "Pessimist," and one by
"Impartial Observer." They follow: '
The Optimist
In reply to the question, "Will the
Fairbanks district make a quartz sec
tion?" The Optimist replied:
"Make a quartz camp: why It al
ready Is a quartz camp. This Is one
1 of the richest quartz countries in the
world. Several men will mako a for
tune this summer if they can get j
their ore through the mill. I have
been a hard rock miner all my life and ,
! I never saw a better looking quartz
i country than the country right around '
;; Fairbanks creek. And all the Riuface
indications arc that the ledges are ,
not going to pinch out. I've beou to
, all the properties around here and 1
tell you that there Is not a single one
that Is not going to make a good
quartz mine. The boys are .working
hard, and everyone Is satisfied with
the outlook, and that shows that they,
have the goods. When the railroad
? comes In Fairbanks will bo one of the
, | richest quartz camps in America: I've
been all over the States, and I have
i never seen a better looking quartz
; country than this one is. This lum
mer Is going to see more activity
than ever before in quartz around
here, and I expect to see old Fair
banks creek produce a million dollars
in quartz within the next year.
"In three years, placer will be a
thing of the past. Every quartz dis
trict has a boom, then quiets dov^n,
and then proves whether or not It in
worth staying with. Well, quartz In
this district had its boom, quieted
down and has already proven that it
i" worth staying with. What more
can you want than that?"
The Pessimist
The Impartial observer asked The!
Pessimist this question: "Will Fair- 1
banks make a quartz camp?"
The Pessimist answered that it '
would not. The Pessimst was certain 1
that there was no chance of Fair
banks ever being a quartz camp. Per
sonally for the last nine years he had 1
been a quartz prospector, he had sunk I
shafts and driven tunnels, he had dis- I
covered prospects, and he had done
his assessment work regularly, and
with his partner had worked steadily
and earnestly. Therefore ho ought '
to be in a position to know. His con- I
elusions were that Fairbanks would
never have quartz in paying quanti
ties. He told the impartial Observer 1
that he had refused to have his claim
bonded for one hundred thousand dol
lars. and that an English Syndicate
had offered to do five thousand dol- j
lars' worth of work a month on hi3 i
claim for a year, but as the corpora- ?
tlon would not pay enough money j
down, The Pessimist had refused the j
offer. But still he works away trying ?
to uncover something that does not
exist, struggling with ceaseless energy
to find that which according to his
own words is not to be found in this
upart of Alaska.
The Impartial Observer
The Impartial Observer is not a
quartz expert, he is not even a miner,
but he molded all the stories he heard
and everything he saw in the quartz
belt together, and reached this con
clusion:
Fairbanks has excellent quart*:
prospects. Experienced hard rock min
ers say that the quartz belt has all
the appearances of turning out well.
There are many stringers that c?Ji
be and are being worked at a profit
Xo quartz miner believes that the
Fairbanks quartz district has been
given a fair test. A mill with a larg
er capacity Is essential to successful
prospecting. The men who arc giv
ing their time and spending t:.
money believe that this will ultimate
ly he a quartz camp, but that much
more time will be required to prove
that it is. There is not a single shaft
deep enough to definitely show wheth
er the ledges are lasting. With the
proper equipment for handling the -
ore, Fairbanks 'creek would produce "
one million dollars a year for five :
years with the amount of ore now in
sight. Xo mine or prospect is being
worked all the time. Most of the
prospectors have no place to put tbo
ore after it Is mined and before it
is run through the mill. Bettor roads
arc needed in the quartz belt, so that
the ore can be hauled to the mill at
a reasonable rate. There is not a
quartz mine in the district as yet, but
there are a hundred prospects that if
they were on the Outside would be
gobbled up by capital in less time
than it takes to tell about them.
HOMESTEAD CLAIM DENIED.
This morning's mail brought to the |
local land ofllce the decision of the
Commissioner in regard to the case
of the United States vs James Gird
wood in connection with a homestead
claim filed by the defendant at Gla
cier, Alaska. The claim comprises 80 f
acres and is declared forfeited be- ?
cause Girdwood failed to comply with
the homestead law. The land in r;;
question is located on the line of the :
Alaska Northern railway in Turna
gain Arm. and at one time was occu- ?;
pied adversely to the government's )
claim by a small town made up en j
tlrely of construction workers to the
number of about three hundred, who
were employed on the railroad.
COAL CLAIM DENIED.
Notice has been received by the
local land ofllce of the decision of
the Commissioner in regard to the
case of the United States vs Wendell
McLaughlin, assignee of E. J. Rath
bone. McLaughlin had filed a coal p
claim in the Bering river district and &
the government sustains the charge f'j
of fraud in that McLaughlin failed to [j
open a coal mine, as requirod by law. pi

art Fur Co., of Seattle, passed through
to Knik on the Admiral Evans tcday.

bard.
