COPPER RIVER ROAD
CORDOVA, Aug. 9.? Lewis E.
Smoot, who is said to be a personal
representative of tho Secretary of the
Interior, Hon. Franklin K. Lane, was
a Cordova visitor yesterday. Ho Is
a passenger on the steamer North
western and made the trip over the
Copper River & Northwestern rail
way to Miles and Childs glaciers. The
trip was a revelation to Mr. Smoot
and he was very enthusiastic about
it in his pralso of the wonderful
sights he saw and also the thorough
ly equipped road over which he trav
eled. He had evidently not expected
to find such a railroad in Alaska,
judging from his expressions.
From those who talked with Mr.
Smoot it was learned that he was on
a tour of Investigation of Alaska har
bor conditions for railroad terminals,
with a view to their adaptability in
handling the local coal when it is
opened up and ready for market He
is on his way to Portage Bay and
Anchorage, but expects to return to
Cordova and study conditions here.
This is Mr. Smoot's first visit to Al
aska, and it is understood that he is
a railroad contractor in tho States."
