FIRE DAMAGES CORD
WOOD AT FAIRBANKS
On account of the fact that few of 11
the ranchers are in town today it is j i
difficult to ascertain the amount of! (
wood restroyed by the fires that have
been raging in the neighboring hills
during the past few days. So far as i
known Charles T. Crozier of Birch |
Hill, who lost 125 cords of four-foot i
wood is the greatest sufferer. I
Other losses were sustained by i
Frazler. who took up a homestead this j j
winter on the other side of Isabelle (
creek, and who had 25 cords burned: '
and a man right across from FTaz
ier's who lost between 20 and 30 cords
and J. H. Riding, who is out to the
extent of about 25 cords.
As far as can be ascertained the
fires are about out, although there |
is the danger than the high wind pre-1
railing will start them up agaln.

CHATANIKA TRAIL
BEST SAYS ZUG
FAIRBANKS. June 1.-That the j
new trail from Chatanikn to the new
diggings in the Tolovana is better
than the present route being usee",
from Olnes was the statement made
last evening by John Zug. superinten
dent of the Alaska Road Commission.
He said further that he did not wish
to say that the present Chataniku
trail is better than any that could be
constructed from Olnes. but he con
siders it better than the Olnes road
as it stands today. Mr. Zug went ov
er to Chatanlka trail as far as Wash
ington creek, and speaks in the high
est terms of the work done by^N.
G. Cox. who had but little money and
few men at his disposal.
Several weeks ago. Mr. Zug made
a trip to the new diggings by way of
the Olnes trail. Upon returning to
town, he said that he had found that
trail was not in as good condition as
it might be. but that a good rond could
be built from Olnes to the Tolovana.
Yesterday, at the invitation of the
business men of Chatanlka. he made
the trip out over that trail, and was
much pleased with it.
Mr. Zug expects to make a trip
over the Happy Creek trail, in order
that he may be able to report per
sonally to Colonel Richardson just
how the land lies.
RUBY HAS GOOD
SPRING CLEANUP
FAIRBANKS. June 1. That Ruby
is looking remarkably good and that
the spring cleanups were better than
anticipated by the mining men. is
stated by A. E. Light, the special
agent for the prevention of liquor
traffic among th^ natives. The op
erators of the Ruby district look for
\ season that will be even better than
last year, and it Is expected that the
output will be larger.
Selch. Deiz. & Walker, during the ,
winter, expected that when they ,
cleaned up their dump, they would
take out approximately $80,000, When
they started to sluice, they cleaned
up half the dump and took out $90.- (
?00. |,
Alex Larson found dirt that would ,
run about seven dollars to the foot ;
on Long Creek. He has let lays on .
the ground and it will be operated in
lividually. ,
Little Crime Among Indians ,
Mr. Light reports, regarding his >
own work that he finds there is less
iiquor traffic among the natives the
natives along the Yukon than at any
time in years. He attributes this to
the fact that so many convictions j <
were secured which threw fear into' j
the hearts of the others.?(Fairbanks 1 ]

GUGGENHEIM STOCK
REACHES HIGH POINT
NEW YORK, Juno 15.? Guggen
heim shares Saturday made a new
high record of 67%.
Accompanying this strength are re
ports In banking circles that plans
have been undor consideration for the
distribution of a portion of security
holdings which constitute the bulk of
assets; and also that complete dis
tribution of these assets has been con
templated. Members of M. Guggen
heim's Sons declined to discuss tho
report, but a representative of the
company declared It was net undor
discussion.
In the light of tho possibility of
such an action, it is interesting to
calculate the valuo of Guggenheim
shares In such a contingency. At tho
present market prices for these
stocks, plus the value at which the
Alaska-Yukon properties and equip
ment are carried on balance sheet, in
addition to cash and demand loans
which stood at $11,837,273 on Decem
ber 31, last, tho company has dis
tributable assets totaling $65,623,939.
This gives a book value to the 831,732
shares of tho Guggenheim Explora
tion company outstanding of better
than 78%. This stock closed Friday
at 64.
These assets may be tabulated as
follows, the market price being ap
proximated:
Utah Copper $27,910,776
Chino Copper 4,594,250
Ray Consolidated Copper 3,857.500
Amor. Smelt. & Ref. Co.. 5,699,000
Amer. Smelt. Sec pfd, A.... 2,860,660
Yukon Gold 7.S17.218
Alaska ? Yukon Property
and equipment 1,047,262
Cash and demand loans.... 11,937,273
Total $65,623,939
Tho balance sheet of December 31,
last, gives on its liability side only
capital liabilities of $20,793,300, un
paid taxes (estimated) of $32,000 and
surplus of $24,972,000. Unpaid taxes
could be more than met from the $59.
500 of miscellaneous investments, ac
counts collectible, etc.
On the basis of dividend Increases
made a fortnight ago by Utah, Chino,
and Ray companies, the Guggenheim
Exploration income is now running
close to $3,500,000 yearly. Interest
received on loans would bring tho in
come up toward the $4,000,000 mark.
With the large profits accruing to the
copper producing companies from the
high prices for copper and activity of
the refineries of the Smelting com
pany. which are running virtually at
capacltyl. greater returns on these
shares mny be considered probable.?
