June amounted to approximator 9,
<>00.000 pounds. The net earnings
available for dividends wore in ex-|
cess of $1,1100,000, equal to $1.1G a
share. This is at the rate of $15 a
share per annum. A production as!
great as 9,000.000 pounds per month;
Is not expected to be maintained

tween 35.000,000 and 30.000,000 pounds
far in excess of the earlier estimates. J
Application will soon be made to
list Kennecott Copper on the New

ANCHORAGE, July 10.? Uncle ,
Sum's debut as an auctioneer in town- ,
dte lots in Alaska was made hero
:hls afternoon and was attended by ,
indcnlablo success. Bidding was real
y active and prices were raised by (
bidders in the crowd of upwards of ,
1500 people, from two to three times
:ho appraisement niado by tho Gov- ,
jrninont's agents. A total of about
$30,000 was received from vthe sale
if the first 45 lots.
A. Christianson, of the General
Land Office, conducted the sale nnd
officiated as auctioneer. The proceed
ings wero conducted out in the open
air on the present unofficial town
sitefl near the new railroad tracks.
The auctioneer and his clerks who
kept the official record of the sales,
were located upon a temporary
frame platform, while the bidder's
and interested spectators stood group
ed about them.
Mr. Christianson made an extended
address, explanatory of the sale and
of the government's plans itj connec
tion with the construction of the rail
road from Seward to Fairbanks, with
out the injectment of any now infor
mation of any new Information oln
this already widely discussed nation
al project. He was given the closest
attention of tho crowd, which appear
ed to ge in a general good humor.
There were no signs of tho agitation
that mljtht have been anticipated be
cause of recent expressions of dissat
isfaction over the auction plan of sale
in preference to a proposed lottery

ery lot which the fortunnte fellow
in the lottery would be called upon
to pay for the land. There was noth
ing to bo heard of the cry "that the
poor man is being discriminated
against in favor of tho rich man."
Neither was there any indication of
the appearance of agents of any syn
dicate intend upon grabbing of the
entire townsite. as some timid folks
had professed to dread as a possibil
It was a serious-minded crowd that
attended the sale. There waa little
hilarity attending the bidding, al
though occasionally some fellow could
be heard indulging in good natured
comment upon the price paid by some
successful bidder. But ns a whole,
the buyers were evidently men in
tent upon business which tliey were
n#t divulging to their numerous
chance acquaintances. Anchorage cer
tainly got off to a good start on its
new homesite. .
The first successful bidder was a

PITTSBURGH?AIIIgb havo placed
lddltional orders In Pittsburgh for
1,000,000 bayonets, 1,000,000 rifles and
1920,000 worth of trace chains, ac
,-ordlng to a Pittsburgh banker, who
Inclined to give further details.
On account of tho increased rtum
3or of orders received recently, be
:ween 800 nnd 900 men are working
light and day at the plant of the H.
K. Porter Co. The largest order Is
from the Russian government, which -
culls for 22 locomotives weighing 72 ?>
tons each, and for 11 locomotives
weighting G7 tons each. Tho com
pany also has a finishing order for
13 locomotives of a lighter typo from
Havana, Cuba. Orders also havo re
cently been received from .the govern
ments of Brazil and tho Argentine.
NEW YORK.?There has been no
let-up of the placing of war orders
with-Amerlca'h manufacturers In the
last few days. Bankers estimate new
business reported in that period at
close to $100,000,000.
It is said that war orders to tho
value of $500,000,000 havo been plac- -
ed through the firm of J. P. Morgan i
& Company to date, $400,000,000 of |
whi^h is Tor the account of Gi^eat .
Recent orders covered a wider <
range of commodities than hitherto, j
Indicating a moro general demand by <
the Allies for American products be- '
lng asido from those which are strict
ly munitions. j
Great Britain, for instance, placed 1
a new order for 115,000,000 younds of ! I
granulated sugar, valued at $5,250,000 ^ I
Shipments arc to be made at 4.65
cents per pound net cash in bond.
Tho French government is reported to i
have bought 2,690,000 pounds in San ,
Domingo raw sugar at 3.72 cents per
pound, c. i. f.
Apart from that tendency and the
placing of the American order, the
feature of last week was the distri

steel. The total shrapnel steel or
ders taken by the Lackawanna Steel
Company arc close to 100,000 tons.
The Colt Patent Firearms Manufac
turing company decided to double its
plant at Hartford, Conn., to fill the
huge war orders for machine guns.
One of the factories to be so utilized
has not been used for firearms man

a mont'i or two. It Is 1350 feet long
and 327 feet wide.
The Republic Rubber Company, of
Youngs town. Pa., took an order for
$500,000 worth of solid rubber tires.
The Hendcz Manufacturing Com

One of the other import features
of the last few days is the develop
ment of the export movement of war
supplies to the rush point. In the
past few months shipments of sup
plies have been confined largely to
powder, food stuffs and horses, but
now the exportation of shells is be
coming a feature. The Bethlehem
Steel Company is shipping 25,000 big
shells a day.
The return of Sir Thomas Shaugh
nessy and the arrival here of D. A.
Thomas added a ned interest to the
complaint of tho Canadians as to the
way they have been treated in war
orders. It is understood Sir Thomas
returned with enormous orders, that
arc expected to keep all the Canadian
plnnts busy at capacity fwor a great
many months. The business will be I
handled through the purchasing de
partment of tho Canadian Pacific.
