WORK PROGRESSES
ON PORTAGE ROAD
SULZER. Sept. 11.? A crew of a
dozen men under Superintendent L.
T. Merry of the Alaska Road Commis
sion, are making rapid progress on
overhauling the Portage Road. The
road is being straightened up and
generally repaired, an extension on
both sides will be made to deep wa
ter, and the curduroy will be covered
over with gravel. This will make a
vast improvement in the degree of
comfort derived by the public in us
ing this highway, for while the cordu
roy was solid enough, it was so rough
that it was next to impossible to ride

ver it. The tide flats at either end
f the road have also caused much
uconvcnience. and with the road ex
ended beyond these there will be a
,Teat improvement. Williams and
iubbard contemplate the installation
if an auto at an early date, and this
vill doubtless make the Portage an
ren more popular route of travel,

JEW AMERICAN
LINE FOR CHINA
TRADE IN SIGHT
SAN FRANCISCO. Sept. 3.? A
'hinese-owned steamship company
trill enter active competition on the
>acific and fight for the control of
he trade now falling into the hands
if the Japanese by the retirement of
he Pacific Mail Company. The first
hip of the new line?a vessel with
iuge freight and steerage accommo
dntions?will arrive in San Francisco
two months from now.
The new company will be incorpor
ated for 15,000,000, the money being
subscribed by Chinese both in San
Fsancisio and tne Orient. Later a
government subsidy will be asked, it
is said. On this side of the ocean,
the organization work is being ac
complished by the Chinese Six Com
panies and the Chinese Chamber of
Commerce, according to Attorney John
R. McNabe, of the former body.
At several preliminary meetings
the plan met with enthusiastic sup
port by local Chinese and resulted in
determining to Inrorporate when $1,
i >00,000 was in sight.
The pioneer ship in the new line
will fly the British flag, acordlng to
information reaching here from the.
Orient. It will be one of the vessels
now running between Hong Kong
ports and ports in India and the Strait
Settlements. It can accommodate
but a few f>rst-cla38 passengers, but
it will carry 10,000 tons of freight and
j 400 steerage passengers.
Later two or three similar boats
will be added. These, according to
present plans, will prevent a falling
off in trade between China and Amer
ica, until modern ships can be either
purchased orf built. z

PETERSBURG IS
OUT AFTER A
MARINE HOSPITAL
The Petersburg Commercial Club
had a busy session Wednesday even
ing, a variety of matters coming up
for discussion and action.
The secretary was instructed to the
write to several steamship companies
an urgent request that space be re
served for fresh fish shipments by all
steamers making this port. This ac
tion was necessitated by the fact that
a couple of shipments had been pass
ed up by steamers lately, resulting
in heavy expense and much inconven
ience to the shippers, Tho matter
is also to be taken up with the com
mercial bodies of Tacoma and Seat
tle.
It was also decided to correspond
with Sitka business men in regard to
the establishment of boat service, for
passengers and freight between that
point and Petersburg, it being report
ed that the Sitka people have had
such an enterprise under considera
tions. If the reply is favorable it
is the intention of the club to send a
delegate to Sitka to arrange for co
operation in the undertaking by Pet
ersburgh business men.
Tho need of a customs office in Pet
ersburg was discussed, and Bteps ta
ken to ascertain if its establishment
cannot be brought about. It was
pointed out that an office at this point
would bo of greater convenience to
the fishing fleet than at any other
place in Southeastern Alaska, and also
to shippers, and that the growing
business will soon make it a neces
sity.
It was decided to again take up the
matter of getting cable service for
Petersburg in place of the present
wireless service. After consulting
with Sargent Stewart, the club will
correspond with the proper authori
ties.
i ul' unui suujeci ui uincussiuu wua
tho inauguration of a movement to
ward securing the establishment of a
marine hospital In Alaska. Tho sec
retary was instructed to correspond
regarding the matter with Delegate
James WIckersham; also to suggest
that there la no more favorable point
in the Territory than Petersburg for
such an institution, and that Peters
burg Is therefore a declared candidate
for It.?(Petersburg Roport.)
