PUEBLO MINE IS
BEING PREPARED TO SHIP ORE: WH1TEHORSE, July 30.- While there is small ltklthood that the Pueb lo mine will resume operations in time to ship ore before next spring, there is no doubt but that arrange ments, now under way, will be com pleted whereby the work of pump ing the water out of the shafts wilt be inaugurated in time to start ship ping ore as soon as weather condi cltions will permit early next year. I In the meantime, however the pre vailing high price of copper is prov ing a mighty stlmulous in this local ity and there is a liklihood that sev eral properties will be active within a short time. The Grafter Mining company is now shipping about 235 tons of higr grade copper ore every week and the scope of operations is geing steadily broad ened. A large deposit of very rich ore was recently struck in that mine and no time will be wasted among mining and shipping it while the price of copper is so remunerative. The owners of the Anaconda which made a good shipment of ore recent- ? ly are so pleased with the results that they are now arranging to let a contract for development work on the property. Robert Lowe, who is a part owner of the War Eagle, is talking strong ly of starting work thero where a fine lot of good ore is already on the dump. Miss Ryan who owns the Empress of India claim, artother excellent property, is also contemplating min ing and shipping. Like the War Ea gle. there are already several car -loads of high grade ore already out and ready for shipment.?(Whltehorse Star. VALDEZ DIKE WITHSTANDS HIGHEST WATER IN HISTORY VALDEZ. July 25.?

Vice Presi dent Baxter, of the Copper River & Northwestern railway, arrived in town last night from out on the line, having made the trip from Tiekel to Abercromble canyon by boat, as the track is overflowed in spots between Tiekel and Mile 54. Although the water is at present above any high water mark previous ly known, since the road was located, .Mr. Baxter did not apprehend any ser ious damage to the rond, providing it recedes during the next few days. Until such time, no repairs can bo made. The track is under water for about 13 miles, which is from threo to six fecjt deep in places. Ouo or two biats of several smnll bridges have been washed away and some of the embankments have caved in. As soon as the water goes down, a large force of men will be puf to work and it is not believed that It will take long to repair the roadbed and have trains running regularly.?(Cordovu Times) MOOSE PASS STRIKE IS VERY RICH SEWARD, July 26.?What is prob ably the richest quartz strike ever made In Alaska has Just been made by i-'rauk Skeen and J. Wi Stevenson In the Moose Pass district. The strike was made on the eighth of this last month and the two lucky finders re turned yesterday with five ounces of gold which they panned from the ledge on tbo surface. The extraor dinary richness of the ore may be judged from the fact that they wash ed several pans worth two to three dollurs and did this In a small twelve( inch pan while part of the dirt punn ed was solid rock that, of course, could not be washed. Mr. Skeen says the rock is the richest he has ever seen in a long career devoted to min ing. The ledge is fourteen inches wide at its greatest width, and has been traced for sixty feet. The dis coverers estimate the value of the rock for all that distance at $1,000 to $2,500 a ton and they believe that the amount of rock exposed carries not less than $150,000. The claims owned by Messrs. Skeen and Stevenson nre known a3 the Champion and the Gladiator. Another indication of the richness of the lit tle ledge is that one man can mortar out an ounce a day from the solid dock. Some of the ore was brought in by the discoverers and shows free gold all over it. Dr. Baughman, who has been visiting the place came hack also yesterday and coincides with the view that the find is of amazing richness and of the most extreme im portance to the whole district.?(Sew ard Gateway.)

Bulgurla, in any event, must know exactly what compensa tion tho sacrifices dcraundcd of her will bring. Our army is stronger than ever. Wo are ready to face all eventualities." Forty-five years ago France declar ed war on Prussia, and the govern ment of Napoleon III. entered upon a short campaign that ruined the country and brought about the down fall of his dynasty. By that war, which lasted ton months France ced ed to Prussia two rich Rhine provinc es which wore Alsace and Lorraine, and paid an Indemnity of $1,000,000, 000, the greatest which any victor ious nation has ever exacted from a vanquished one. Prince Hohenloho-Langenburg, on his way to Constantinople to act as (ierman charge d'affairs during the absence of Baron von Gangenheim, has passed through Bucharest. He is stated to have made great efforts to induce Roumania to permit the passage of war material for Turkey, promising that in case of her con sent Germany immediately would de liver munitions ordered by Roumania before tho outbreak of tho war. ?? * German papers publish a letter by Field Marshal Mackenscn who Rays: "No one in Germany wanted war, least of all the Kaiser. England Is the author of this world conflagra tion. France and Russia only follow ed her lead in their hatred towards Germany. Russia is a tenacious op ponent and has prepared for obsti nate resistance. Our losses are great but we shall hold out. We shall and must win. It is Inevitable." ?+? The British admiralty received 16, 000 offers of new scientific devices during the first five months of the war. Many were from Americans. Another 16,000 have been proffered in the past five months. One device promises to render battleships im mune from submarine attacks. The nature of this device is being kept a profound "secret. A London cable says besides lim iting hours which liquor may be sold in towns where the government has taken over the control of the sale of liquors, the board of control, appoint ed to deal with the munitions areas, has ordered that there shall bo no treating and has prohibited the giv ing of credit for liquor. A shortage nnd advance in the price of Turkish cigarette tobacco are predicted by President Dickson, of the Tobacco Products company. The war has cut off the Levantino sup ply and greatly reduced acreage plant ed. Much tobacco land has been put into grain. John E. Redmond, Irish national ist leader, in New York World says that Irclnnd has sent 127,000 men to the British colors. Recruiting is going on at the rate of 6,000 to 7,000 weekly. Ulster volunteers number 25,000. The London County Council spec ial eummcr lunguage classes have on ly 18 students studying German, while there are 30 new classes with 1073 students studying French, and eight Russian classes with 96 stu dents. The Empress of Russia has con sented to the d8tributlon among 1, 000,000 soldiers of Russia copies of the Bible contributed by children of American Sunday schools. The labor of the great number of prisoners of war?more than a mil lion Russians?has been utllizod in reclaiming more than 186,000 acres of marshland In Prussia alone. The Ger mans claim that this valuable addi tion of land Is of considerable import ance to their national economy, and much more so. as this year's endeav ors of private organizations in the same direction has resulted in the re claiming of 62,000 acres In addition to the above. ?*? The London Chronicle reprints an article from the Berlin Vorwaerts, describing the number of Idle stores and ruined tradespeople, the pres ence of more soldiers in the streets than in time of peaco and that wo men are at work in all kinds of In dustries, illustrating "the vibrations of that awful drama of war." The House of Commons has with drawn vote of $1,250,000 for works to be carried out for the relief of the un employed as there is now work for all. Gifts of the United States for relief of the Belgians average $41,000 a day. ? Capt. Simon Lake, owner of tho Lake Torpedo Boat Co., now con structing submarines for the govern ment says: "In 1905 when I was dis cussing the submarine question with Admiral von Tlrpitz he said "Never mind the small ones.
