A permanent 15-cent passenger rate between Juneau and all channel points, effective Saturday morning, today was decided on by the Juneau Ferry & Navigation Company and an nouncement to this effect was mado by J. P. Corbus, treasurer of tho company. The company also will start work immediately on the con struction of a waiting room on the ferry approach, and will equip the forry "Alma" with steel gangways, for tho purpose of insuring safety to pas sengers. "Safety First," will become the slo gan of the Juneau Ferry & Naviga tion company and according to the plans of Manager Edward J. Mar grie every effort will be put forth to improve tho service from time to time. The present ferry schedule will continue in force until winter, when a new schedule will be inaugurated, it is planned. Low Electric Rate for Cooking Possible. If tho plans of the Alaska Electric Light & Powor Company material ize. a low rate for electric cooking will be established sometime in the near future. The light company is allied with the ferry company and during his visit here Mr. Corbus, in terested in both concerns, has inves tigated the feasibility of making a flat low rate for electricity when used for cooking and heating purpos es. "Our plans are not yet fully ma tured in this direction," he said this morning, "but we hope to carry them out before long. A low rate for oloc tricity used for cooking and heating would not only help the public; it would help us to improve our service and sell the over-load of current that our new equipment at the power plant provides." Rate Reduction Will Be Permanent The reduced rate on the ferry is a permanent move, Mr. Corbus said. "We hare been In the ferry business here for the past thirty years," Mr. Corbus continued, "and I feel that we have given 'Gastineau channel as good a service as the business warranted. When Juneau began to grow fast three years ago we realized that we must havo new and faster boats, and In our ferry 'Alma' I think that we have as good a ferry as you will find anywhere. She is fast, and safe, and I hope the people of the channel will continue to support our eiforts to give you better service, and greater efficiency in all departments. Wo have had the plans drawn for the new waiting room, and work will commence immediately on its con struction." Sell Commuter's Tickets. Commuation tickets at the rate of two for twenty-five cents have been placed on sale at the Ferry company's office, in Third street. Mr. Corbus at one time was super intendent of the Alaska-Treadwell gold mines. Ho resides in Los Ga tos, Calif., and has been spending sev eral days here, in company with Mrs. Corbus and Miss Mary Corbus. They will leave Juneau tomorrow morning on the steamship Princess Alice, on their return home. NO LET UP TO BIG WAR ORDERS NEW YORK, Aug. 25.? Russian re verses and the German submarine campaign have been attended by no slowing down on tho part of the Al lies in placing munitions contracts. Large industrial concerns have add ed to orders already in hand, and a number of smaller plants have become known munition makers. Among the latter may be mentioned Henry Dis tin & Sens. Philadelphia, said to bo working on 2,000,000 steel shrapnel bars for Bridgeport Projective Co.; the Sandard Steel Car Company, of New Castle. Pa., which booked an or der for 75.000 shells?the second it has received; and the Pool Engineer ing & Machine Company, of Baltimore whose recent order for parts of shells brings its total business to between $5,000,000 and $6,500,000. The Balti more Tube Company Is manufacturing 9,000,000 pounds of brass tubing for the Allies. Another Baltimore concern which has come Into prominence is the Spedden Shipbuilding Co., which has been tendered a contract for 1,875,000 shells, to cost about $17 each, bring ing the total to more than $30,000,000. The company is seeking to sub-let a part of the work, and will not sign a contract until subcontracts have been arranged. It Is understood a payment of 25 per cent, will be made whon the contract is signed. The American Steel Foundries Co. is negotiating on contracts estimated as high as $50,000,000wlth options on a similar amount. An official, how ever, does not believe the business being figured on exceeds $20,000,000. Tho work contemplated Includos high oxploslvo shells and sharpnel as well us heavy castings. Tho New York Air Brake Company is also likely to expand its operations by the addition of some $20,000,000 to its war contracts, on which a profit of 25 per cent is figured. It is already working on orders totaling $16,500, 000, mostly for shells and cartridge cases, on which a profit of $3,000,000 is assured. The Baltimore Malleable Iron & Steel Company has signed contracts for 700 motor trucks for France and England, 700 trailers for Russia, and 25,000 Iron containers for powder and food. It will manufacture only the parts, which will be assembled in Philadelphia. Tho General Electric Company is understood to have added $12,000,000 to its contracts, and shell contracts of the Westinghouso Eleceric Com pany have grown substantially since the placing of the original order for $4,500,000. It is working on a total of 1,800,000 rifles. By December the Studebaker Cro poration will have completed over $20 000,000 of its war business, on which the profit is estimated at $4,000,000. William Tod Co., at Youngstown, is doubling its capacity for shrapnel castings, which it is turning out for the Canadian Car & Foundry Com pany. The National Steel Car Com pany, (Canada), is also busy on a va riety of munitions, understood to have been placed under sub-contracts with the Canadian Car & Foundry Com pany. Other Equipment companies which continue to figure largely are the American Car & Foundry Com pany, and the Pressed Steel Car Com pany. Roumania is said to have placed orders in this country for 500,000 Manllcher rifle cartridges,. and has recently ordered 10,000,000 shells, be ing valuod at $150,000,000, one-half of the contract going to the Bethlehem Steel Corporation. Russia is also in quiring for 2,000,000,000 cartridges, with very little prospect of securing deliveries before the first half of the next year. Italy in the last few days has bought 800,000 overcoats and 1, 000,000 blankets in America. The Bri tish government is also in this mar ket for about 20,000 tons of sulphuric acid. The most likely recipient is said to be the Tennessee Copper Com pany, which is already supplying acid to tho Du Ponts. Companies with war business in hand are steadily enlarging their ca pacity. The Bethlchom Steel has pur chased the plant of Detrick & Harvey Machine Company, in Baltimore, for which approximately $225,000 was paid. The American Can Company bought a. large factory at Kenilworth N. J? and also secured a lease on the old Pearline works at Edgewater, N. J. Shells will be made at Edgewater and filled at Kenilworth, it is an nounced. Twenty-two buildings will be erected at Dundolk at the plant of the Bartlott Hayward Company of Baltimore, and a long pier will be constructed to facilitate shipments.?
