KETCHIKAN MEN !!
TO PROSPECT IN
STICKINE COUNTRY I
W RANG ELL. July 15?Another evi
dence of renewed activity In tnin-i
ing up the Strickine river waa the!
visit last week of F. T. Leahy, rep
resenting the Alaska Venture Co., a
corporation financed by London cap
italists. who recently purchased and
are now operating what is known as
the Smuggler Cove group of mines'
near Ketchikan. Mr. Leahy was ac-'
companies by W. B. Gilmour, of Ket-|
chikan. a well known mining ex
pert, prospector and operator in the.
Southeastern Alaska district. Mr.;
Gilmour prospected, to some extent,
near the boundary line in 1898 and
says if the stuff found at that time
has not got away, there can be some
thing worth while done up there.
The present good prices for all
metals is a great inducement for op-:
orators to open up and develop new.
properties, for they can dispose of the
tow grade ores that are usually en
countered in the surface workings at
prices that wilt almost if not quite
pay developing expenses, in other
words, be on a paying basis from the
grass roots.?(Wrange 11 Sentinel)

TREADWELL YIELDS
NEARLY Si,000,000
The Treadwell properties on Doug
las Island produced a total of $3,832,
374 during the year 1914 according to
reports published In the Bast. The
profits wero $1,769,360, and the divi
dends paid $1,406,180.
The Boston News-Bureau of July 13
contains the following concerning the
annual showing of the Treadwell
properties:
"Of the three operating gold prop
erties in Alaska controlled by the
Bradley-Mills interests, the Alasku
Treadwell Gold Mining Company was
the only one to show greater profits
in 1914 than In 1913.
"The Treadwell Company's profits
were $1,351,402, against $1,223,437 In
1913: Alaska Mexican, $170,020, as
against $171,797, and the Alaska Unit
ed $247,938. against $385,065.
"The operations of the three com
panies in detail were as follows:
1914 Treadwell Mexican United
Ore crushed
tons) .. $ 910,285 $233,457 $485,314
Yield 2,357,561 509,023 965.790
Net profit 1,351,402 170,020 247,938
Deprecia
tion 250.953 25,451 81,153
Dividends 1,100,000 144,000 162,180
"Alaska Troaclwell paid dividends
of 22 per cent, for the year, which
was the same as in 1913, Alaska Mexi
can paid 16 per cent, against 20 per
cent., while the Alaska United cut its
rate from 46 to IS per cent.
"At the end of 1914 the Alaska
Treadwell reported 7,159,253 tons of
ore in reserve, against 6,093,308 tons
at the end of 1913, the value perton
being 52.48, against 52.67. The yield
?*rom the Treadwell production last
year dropped to 52.60 from 52.66 per
ton. which, however, was more than
offset by lowering in costs from 51-21
in 1914 to 51.08. The Mexican com
pany's yield was 52.18 per ton, com
paring with 52.15 in the preceding
year, with operating costs 51.45 per
tonfl against 51.39. The Mexican com
pany's ore reserves were the lowest
-eported for several years.
"The Alaska United also operated
at a higher average cost than in the
preceding year. Its ore reserves
showed an increase in tonnage but a
felling off in values. s
"A joint power plant has been set
up to supply electricity not only for
the Alaska Treadwell, Alaska Mexi
can and Alaska United, but for the
\laska Juneau Gold Mining Co., con
trolled_ by the same interests."
VALDEZ MERCHANTS
START TO REBUILD
?+?
"Valdez merchants have begun to
rebuild their stores, and although the
city looks black and dismal, there Is
a strong feeling of optimism, and the
city will not long show the efrects of
the fire last week." said S. Evan
Hodge. Alaska manager of the West
inghousc Company, today. Mr. Hodge

BROAD PASS MAY BE
GRAVE DISAPPOINTMENT
That a number of miners and pros
pectorr who have gone into the new
ly discovered Broad Pass country
searching for. quartz deposits are go
ing to be disappointed, is the opinion
expressed by Stephen Birch, presi
dent of the Kennecott Copper Com
pany, who was in Juneau Saturday.
In an interview given to the Seattle
Times Just before his departure for
the North. Mr. Birch said:
"We had an expedition in that re
gion all winter," said Birch, "and the
properties we had under option fail
ed to stand up under investigation.
The members of the expedition didn't
find enough shipping ore to load a
pack horse. There may be some ton
nage in that country, but the mem
bers of our expedition failed to dis
covber it.
"The only tonnage that will be de
veloped. so far as we were able to
learn, will come from the Matanuska
coal-fields, .and with the exception of
that used In the navy that will not
be anything enormous. Many of the
battleships are now bunting fuel oil.
"The market for Alaska coal will
come largely from Alaska itself. It
will be used in developing and creat
ing various Industries. Practically
every big plant in Alaska now burns
California fuel oil."
CHICKEN RANCH?
AND NOT ROADHOUSE
Denying that they intended estab
lishing a soft-drink roadhouse on the
Lund Farm. 8 miles north of Juneau,
Mr. and Mrs. M. V. Johnson said to
day they were to raise chickens on
the property they have acquired, and
to make their home there?nothing
more.
"We have a shipment of 300 thor
oughbred chickens coming on one of
the first boats, and will cater to the
Juneau markets," Mrs. Johnson Bald
this morning. "We are not going to
run a road-house. This is to be our
home."
OR. MYERS TO GO TO

H.Tinn, of Seattle, arrived up from
the south on the Humboldt last night,

ination of the Delhi as she lies. When
