RAILROAD WILL BE RUSHED IE WEATHER GOOD "There will be no break in the work on the Alaska railroad this winter," jaid J. F.

Edes is planning to go to Washington in November, but his de parture will not in any way affect tho construction work. Funds are still available and the matter of mon ey will not be of such great import ance in connection with the railroad as will the weather, which may force a cessation of the work." Hope For Good Winter If this winter is anything like the last winter winter there is little doubt but what active construction on the railroad out of Anchorage will be kept up without cessation. All winter sup plies for the construction camps will leave Seattle not later than October IS, as the ice in Cook's Inlet may form at any tome and prevent the govern ment from getting enough material tq keep tho crows at work.

No Cash There is a scarcity of cash at An chorage, and an abundance of govern ment cheques, which has tended to force the "keep the money at home" policy.

While there are some people at Anchorage who believe Seward will eventually become the metropolis of that section, owing to the certainty that during the winter season boats will be unable to get to Anchorage, the Anchorage boosters point to the statement of Chairman Edes, which intimated that tho government would try and ship all coal from the Matan uska fields by way of Anchorage.

"The French people are realizing to the fullest measure the struggle they aro engaged in and are making every provision to meet It. This spir it should also be shown by Canadians" declared Sir Robert.
