July 13.?The statement of President Hayden, of the Alaska j Gold Mines Company. In yesterday's; Boston News Bureau, that dividends would probably be Inaugurated next July, has naturally aroused inquiry as to what the rate is llkoly to be. It is too early to Btate with dellnlteness what Alaska Gold will be able to ac complish In the way of costs and re coveries, although the original esti mates of the company engineers un doubtedly will be improved upon. When the company was first taken in hand by the Hayden-Stone inter ests, it was estimated that the ore would average $1.50 per ton, nnd that the\costs of operating would be nbout 75 cents per ton, leaving a profit of a like amout per ton. Results to date j in thro two sections of the mill now in operation show that those esti mates were most conservative. But even on the original estimates, with the treatment of 10,000 tons of ore per day, which will be the capac ity of the plant next July, when the dividends are commenced, profits, would b? $75,000 per day, or say agout $2,250,000 per annum, figuring 300 working days to the year. Alaska Goid has 800,000 shares out standing, with all bonds converted, but with the $1,000;000 of convertible bonds which will probably be issued this fall, capitalization on which earn ings after January, 1915. are to be fi gured will be around 840,000. The j 10,000 ton plant therefore should pro- j duce earnings of better than $2.60 per share, which would make it pos sible to establish dividends of $2 per share. These earnings may seem some what small, but It Ir to be remem bered. first that officials will be sur prised if the profit per ton Is not materially in excess of 75 cents, and second, that the 10,000-ton plant will be supporting a capitalization of say 840.000 shares, whereas the capacity could be doubled or trebled with a capital increase of probably not more than 100,000 shares. In other .words.' Alaska Gold with an Insignificant in crease in share capitalization could earn either twice or three times as much as will be possible next July when dividends are started. The company's progressive earning power with a 10,000, 20,000 and 30. 000 ton plant. Is shown in the follow ing table: Share Yearly Per capital earnings share 10.000 S50.000 $2,250,000 $2.50 20.000 900.000 4,500,000 5100 30.000 950.000 6,750.000 7.00 The above share capitalizations are maximum which will be required, while the earnings are the minimum. The actual results should materially better the above estimates.?(Boston News Bureau.)

Raymond Go. ^ Phone 28 SEATTLE LAWYER AND DEMOCRAT LOCATES HERE William A. Holzheimer, a prominent member of the bar in Seattle for more than a decade, arrived in Juneau yes terday on tho Admiral Watson. and will locate in this city. Before com ing to tho coast and locating In Seat tle, Mr. Holzheimer practiced law in Utah and Idaho. "1 began tho practice of law in a mining town." said Mr. Holzheimer, "and 1 have felt like a rish out or wa ter since I loft it. 1 made up my mind that I would return to one, and Ju neau is the most promising of all the mining cities that I know about. I have come here to stay and will open a law office within a few days." In addition to his prominence at the bar, Mr. Holzheimcr has been a leader in politics in Seattle and the State of Washington. He was tho Democratic nominee for Attorney General of Washington in 1908, and was one of the organisers of tho King County Democratic Club which has been the most active political or ganization in Seattle for several years. He was the first chairman of tho Seattle Democratic city commit tee after the adoption of tho direct primary law. Mr. Holzhcimer's wife nnd daughter will join him at Juneau as Soon as the Panama Pacific Exposition shall have closed. Mrs. Holzheimer is one of the five commissioners that have charge of the Washington State ex hibit at the exposition, and the other commissioners elected her to be hos tess at the Washington building. She will remain there until the close of the fair. After graduating from Ann Arbor, Mr. Holzheimer located in the Tin tic mining district of Utah, an dim mediately became prominent at the bar nnd in politics. He served as | prosecuting attorney, was chairman I of the school board and occupied oth official positions. and was looked upon ! as one of the leaders of the Democrat ic party of he State. Among other activities. Mr. Holzheimer became I the owner of a newspaper?the Eu reka Republican?and conducted that ! in addition to his other activities. Mr. Holzheimer is a past exalted ruler of the Elks, and his friends up and down the coast are legion. UKKMAIN SITUATION HURTING RUSINESS BOSTON, July 21.?The general sit uation seems to be becoming more mixed and perplexing every day. Peo S pie are growing more conservative all the time. and. excepting war or | ders. are apparently doing as little as possible. From a strictly financial and econct mic standpoint this country is In a remarkably strong position, but there I is an uncertainty that prevails -which checks any disposition to expand. In terest at the moment naturally cen ters In the German reply to Presi dent Wilson's second note. This is ; said to have been handed ^to \Ambas ! sudor Gerard and is geing forwarded to Washington in code. Unofficial i information is that the reply is not favorable. If it should not meet President Wilson's demands, then a third note may be sent to Germany which would require another answer. There Is a probability, of course, that President V.ilson will not longer parley, and that he will sever diplo matic relations with Germany at once. This would likely result in the calling of Congress in special session, which might lead to a genuine crisis. The security market is naturally nervous. There is constant liquida tion by Europe, although the greatest selling pressure is undoubtedly by the professional traders. That trouble is that there is no aggressive or concert ed buying, so that prices decline eas ily. Traders are undoubtedly look ing for weak spots to attack. The short interert must be increasing per ceptibly. Money remains extremely easy, and nothing can change this position im mediately. unless further develop ments should cause an absolute lack of confidence on the part of leaders. The banks are not only rich in re severs, but there is the Federal Bank to fall back upon should condi tions requir-?. The market Is certainly one of great possibilities. It may not be a market for small men. but to the man who can finance his operations, under any and all circumstances, stocks assur edly look cheap. One of the best judges of the sit uation says: "The success of the British war loan the resistance of the Russians and the declaration of Lord Kitchener that he can now equip men as fast as they enlist, are the really important fac tors.?(Bastor. News Bureau.) MORE ABOUT THE FAIRBANKS STRIKE FAIRBANKS, July 15.?More than 200 Russians, who usually work as la borers in mines, came to town last night, after refusing to meet the cut of $1 per day made by the operators when in compliance wl^h the law en acted by the last Territorial legis lature, the hours of labor were re duced from ten to eight. United States Marshal IiVin, expecting trou ble, has wired Washington, asking permission to swear in a couple of special deputies. A few of the operators are defy ing the law and are working under the old scale?$5 per day of ten hours Many of the Russian laborers are de parting from the country. A delega tion of their leaders left this morning for Ester Creek to induce the laborers there to quit unless the old wage scale is rstaored. Strike Decreases Output FAIRBANKS, July 16.? Several hundred Russian laborers held a meet ing here last night and voted that un less the operators agree to pay their scale of $5 a day of eight hours they will go to Seattle. The opera tors are not at all likely to meet the demand. E. M. Koyes, a big opera tor in the Chatanika district, offered $5.50 a day for ten hours, but the of fer was declined. Every day the strike is In progress the gold output of this camp is re duced by about $20,000. So far the strikers have been orderly. The operators blame the strike on the membors of the last Territorial Legislature, who passed n law pro hibiting miners nnd "others from working more than eight hours a day. It is probable than an effort will bo made to revoke the law at the next session. AMERICANS BUYING. BACK SECURITIES ?+? BOSTON, July 10.?At the begin ning of the war Europe hold some what in excess of $3,000,000,000 of American bonds, on which we remit ted an annual interest toll of about $140,000,000. This total has already been whittled down materially by li quidation, which has reached consid erable proportions since the advent of the new British -loan, offered to yield about 4.60 per cent.; and in n protracted war the process is apt to continue, uftdcr incentives of patriot ism, profit or necessity, individual or national. (jurrcni saies 01 usicti doihis auoru a suggestive though necessarily In adequate idea of the extent of the for eign liquidation which is going, on constantly in the American market. During recent weeks un uncommonly large volume of bond transactions on the New York Stock Exchange has been labeled "seller 30." While this does not conclusively establish the fact, it is generally accepted as prima facie evidence of European origin of the sale. Tlndoubtedly the bulk of transactions providing for delayed de livery represent European liquidation, and, furthermore. It is to be remem bered that the New "York exchange is the selling medium only for those is sues which have the best market there. Sales In the outside market are probably very much larger, Just as the ordinary sales of bonds to invest ors in the outside market are vastly larger than the transactions on the floor of the Stock Exchange.?(Bos ton News Bureau.)
