HALF MILLION IS APPROPRIATED FOR I MINE DEVELOPMENT ""After spending three weeks lu ex amining all of the possibilities of the Dora. Hallum, Mammoth. Stone Cab in. "*? Brooklyn. Boston and Salmon creek groups of mining claims to ;gether with the possibilities for pow er on Gold. Salmon and Lemon creeks and after comparing the reports o: mining engineers, hydraulic engin , cert, nssayers, mineralogists, geolo gists am! others. 1 am satisfied that a large investment can be safely rec ommend v on these properties." said, Marshall A. Barney, a corporation attorney from New York City to an Empire reporter today. "Further than this 1 wilt not he quoted and have nothing to say. Who I represent and the purpose of my visit to your beau tiful city, will appear at the proper time but I must refrain from dis cussion just now. I do wish, howev er, to deny the statement made in a Sunday morning paper that 1 am here investigating where JSOO.OOO has been spent. Nothing could be more erron eous. Mr. H. W. Martin, Hie pro-j iuoter and. the head and front Of this enterprise, has been fully appraised of every expenditure made here and, is convor ^ant with every detail. There is nothing to investigate in any manner. shape or form and such a statement is not only untrue but ri diculous. Mr. George R. Noble, who has had charge of the situation here, has the entire confidence of not only Mr. Martin but ull of his associates as well, tie is a man of the highest integrity and every dollar and penny expended by him has been continu ously ao 'untcd for in such manner as would extinguish the lantern of Diogenes I also wish to deny their -tftatement "where all this money went ds a mystery." as set forth in the same ** oaner. "Mystery" Rumor Pooh-Poohed. j "Then is no mystery whatsoever, Mill I will guarantee Mr. Martin knows of the purchase of every pound of nails. You may be assured there will ncvpjii.bc any-*mys:ery" in connection any undertakings of Mr. Mar tin. He Is a twentieth century busi ness mar. wiio "works iron* six a. m. to ten p. m. and knows where every penny"of every dollar is expended on properties promoted by him. "This proposition not only looks 'sound to me but I will say that af ter goinc over all of the reports and x-especially tho report made by Mr. R. ' A. Kinzie. who bnilt up an internation al reputation by his successful direc ?tion of the Treadwell, that I have be ?come very enthusiastic?in fact too much so for a lawyer who should nev er forget, not only to be conservative tout also never forget his 'whereas' ;and "Wherefores-"" ?SCk Barney refused to comment fur thei^W to deny or affirm the current reports. It was learned on excellent author ity. however, that a syndicate was now forming in New York for the purpose of advancing $500,000 with which to immediately prospect all of the properties. That the several shafts, tunnels and cross cuts now ?started would not be continued with the exception of the Hallum tunnel which will be cut through all five of the mountain properties. In thq ?place of the other developments the ?company will continue its prospect ing work by diamond drilling. The Salmon creek dam, constructed by Mr. Noble will be enlarged and the !>emon creek power development started shortly. Mr. Barney stated that he would have nothing to do with the direction of the work and was not here for that purpose. Noble to Return. When asked if Mr. Noble would re-! turn. Mr. Barney replied, that Mr. No-; bir most certainly would and that "the * statement in the other paper that Mr. Noble Is in the East straightening out a tangle is also, untrue. He is in Se attle in charge of the equipment of a refinery being financed by Mr. Mar tin and there is no tangle. There h;is been a misunderstanding of the situa ? don in the East that caused a shut down on money. That situation is now -<v l&c way to being cleared. :gchecks does not constitute -angle and that is all that this nation needs and Mr. Noble has nothing to do with that part of it and in no manner personally responsible." Mr. Barney would neither deny or affirm the report that D. D. Muir. for merly in charge of the Ebncr mine, 1 would not return. "All I can say Is that I approved the form of a cer tain contract between the United Staes Smelting people and H. W. Mar tin?)Srsonally before I left New York. I 2m. not at liberty to disclose the particulars at this time nor to state that it pertain? to the Ebner mine. I would suggest that there has been circulated enough inaccuracy (to use -;a mild term) about this proposition and that the people fn my judgment would like something a little more au thentic.

Williams, known all over Alaska and the Yukon as "Ned" Williams, passed Into ihs last sleep and his body was taken South this morning on the Jefferson, to Seattle, Tor interment In Eagles' Rest, the burial place of the Seattle lodge of Eagles. Mrs. Williams, who saw her husband allvo but two min utes. accompanied the remains. When ten Mariposa arrived from Seward, Williams was in a critical condition, and an ambulance was tel ephoned for by Mrs. Williams, who met the boat. Williams was con scious only for a moment after the Mariposa had docked. That was when he was told that ho had arrived at Juneau. He smiled, murmured his thanks that he had "held out." and a moment later breathed his last. The order for the ambulance was counter manded. and in its place the black morgue wagon from the Young par lors met the boat. Death was due to diabetes, aggra vated by complications. He was in a serious condition when he left Sew ard on the Mariposa and only his de termination to live until he could see his wife, who was waiting hero, kept the spark of life bright within him. He was born in Buffalo, X. Y., thirty five years ago. He had lived in the West since a boy. and came to Alas ka in 1S97. He and Mrs. Williams had lived in Dawson, Fairbanks, Xome and other camps. Three years ago they moved to Ketchikan. The Shisana stampede called him u-pros pecting again, but last year his health broke down while he was working here in the Alaskan buffet, and he went to the States. When his health improved, he came back Xortli. go ing to Seward this year. there is no news because things have not yet culminated. Mr. Kinzie's re port has changed the entire sentiment in the East, but there is nothing de finite to say at this time except that I am so entranced with your magnifi cent scenery, your healthy, romping, delightful children, and may I be per mitted to add, your beautiful ladles, that it is difficult to occupy myself with mine examinations." (XOTE?Half an hour after M. A. Barney arrived in Juneau a month ago a representative of The Empire, who had been wired a "tig" concerning his visit, hopght an interview with him. Mr. Barney denied his identity, but later admitted the purpose of his vis it and after declaring that premature publication of the details of his mis sion to Juneau would hurt his plans, and those of his clients.
