ALASKA GOLD'S
EARNING POWER
PRESENT^ANI) FUTURE
BOSTON. 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

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.)
