TO BE $8,000,000 IN SEVEN MONTHS BOSTON. Oct. lS.?The basts for expectation of dividends on the Kenne cott Copper at the rate of $5 per share per annum In January Is that from the present prlco of copper the company Is earning more than twice this sum. Under the mortgage in denture one-half of the net earnings must be set aside for the redemption of the $10,000,000 10-year bonds until these have been paid off or converted into stock. The bonds are callable after June 1. 1917 at 105. or exchange able into stock at $25 per share be tween June 1. 1817 and June 1. 1927. The company began its year June 1 and for the first three months pro duced 40.000.000 pounds in the suc ceeding four months so that January 1st there should be a production of 63.000.000 pounds for seven months and a profit therefrom of about 13 cents or over $S,000.000. Out of this mnst be taken Interest at the rate of six per cent, on the bonds. A. quarterly dividend of $1.25 in January on 720.000 shares would call for only $900.000. When Kennecott bonds are converted the dividends on 1,120.000 shares should be no less even with a 13-cent copper market. Kennecott people say that every thing is now arranged so that month ly shipments In winter should be equal to those in the summer months. (Boston News Bureau.) PRESS CLUB HEARS TALK BY SUZZALLO SEATTLE, OcL 18. ? That school men and editors have like aims and that the duties of the latter begin concurrently with the conclusion of the former's work, was the declaration of Dr. Henry Suzzallo. president of the University of Washington, who, with Mrs. Suzzallo. was guest of honor last evening at a reception and muslcale tendered by the Seattle Press Club. 'The school man.", he said, "takes the youngster when his mind is plas tic and teaches him; the editor takes the man when he is mature and tough and teaches him. The school launches the future citizen with the intellect ual tools necessary to take his part as a useful member of society. The press keeps his interest keen in the life about him: presents facts upon which . he passes his judgments; shows him the stream of events; in short, keeps him informed."?(Seattlo Times.) PRESIDENT'S FIANCEE HAS RELATIVE IN CITY OF SEATTLE SEATTLE, Oct. 19.?Mrs. Elizabeth Gait, fiancee of the president of the United States, was in Senttle at the time of the Alaska Yukon Pacific expo sition with a party of women and vis ited at the home of Mrs. John Y.

Occ. 21.?Of particular local interest is the current appear ance at the Grand theatre of Lem Hel ge. the famous Alaskan baritone, who is widely known in the Northland, and who has a host of friends in this city and in San Francisco. Ho is being seen at the local vaudeville house with Miss Virginia Libert! under tho stage ensemble of the "Helbert Duo," and thereby hangs a romance. Lem Helge, "the Handsome Miner," as he is known In Alaska, has accum ulated a moderate fortune as a result of his years in the North, and hasn't the slightest desire to go Into vaude ville for a living. He wouldn't appear at the Grand theatre for an excellent salary offered him by Manager Eu gene Levy, but he did say that he would go on without any salary what ever and sing for Seattle audiences, as a number of his friends had expressed a desire to see him at a public per formance. The romance comes in through the fact that Helge heard Miss Llbertl sing, became deeply Impressed with her beautiful soprano voice and ob tained her consent to a joint appear ance with him at the Grand theatre. It wouldn't be a surprise, rumor whis pers. if Miss Llbertl became Mrs. Helge before Helge returns to the North.

FLAMES DESTROY HALIBUT SCHOONER SEATTLE, Oct. 21.?Flames caused by the back-firing of the engine burn ed th<? halibut schooner Mars of Seat ? tie to the water's edge near Peters burg last week causing a loss of ap proximately $2000. News of the ves sel's destruction was receivod today by Sundc & d'Evers, ship chandlers in the Colman Dock, in a letter from Capt. Jens Varang. master and own er. Varang bought tho schooner only a short time ago from Sunde & d'Ev ers. The vessel was not insured. The Mars carried flvo men. All escaped from the burning schooner without injury. For years the Mars had oporated out of Seattle, as a member of tho pout's fleet of independent halibut schooners. She was a one-dory ves sel, ranking amoug the small schoon ers of her type. Built in 1903, the Mars was one of the veterans of the present fleet. Whon she was launched, a much small er typo of schooner was used in the halibut Ashing industry, and in her day she stood high on the list. Sunde & Erland, now Sunde & d'Evers, pur chased tho vessel four years ago and until the sale to Captain Varang, op crated her on the Alaska banks out of Seattle. VALDEZ DESTINED FOR GOOD TIMES SEATTLE, Oct. 20.?With three or four quartz claims taking out bullion and with the Midas mine shoving cop per ore Into Its bunkers ready for shipment, Valdez, Alaska, according to H. Y. Saint, secretary of the North Yakima Business Men's Association, who has just returned from a summer spent In the North, is well along the trail to prosperity. Saint went north ! specifically to examine the property of the Cameron-Johnson company and ' (o make arrangements for reopening it. The veins in these claims ran Into a fault, and were lost, but the hot weather last summer shrunk the ad joining glacier to a depth of more tlr?n 100 feet and exposed the reefs on the othor side of the fault. Whllo in the ? north. Saint now at the Rainier Grand, 1 took occasion to investigate other i properties In the Valdez and contig uous Port Wells district. Of these, the Granite mine, financ ! od by Jafet Llndeberg and J. E. Chll berg of Seattle, looks like a three time winner. The property is turn ; ing out money every day, and the mill is running steadily. The vein has been cut In a 'ower level, about 500 feet below the present workings, An up-raise shaft is being driven to drain the water from the upper levels. There i is sufficient ore in sight to keep the plant running for many years. The Cliff mine, which has been op : crating for some time, has been clos ed down pending the adjudication of some suits filed against "Red" Ellis ?nobody ever knew his real first name?the owner of the property. The Ramsay-Ruthorford property, however, is sending a small sack of bullion to Valdez every two weeks, and the op orators have plenty of high grade ore blocked out. The Valdez Mining Company is doing a lot of development work and Jack Miller took out $50, 000 from the Slate Creek placer dig gings last season. A syndicate of Pennsylvania capitalists has bonded a big copper property and set aside $250,000 for preliminary development. The Midas Copper mine, owned by the Granby Smelting Company, is now in much better ore and is filling the bunkers preparatory to shipment, and altogether, Valdez is in a very pros perous condition.?(Seattle Times.) KETCHIKAN ROUTE NEEDS MORE SHIPS SEATTLE. Oct. 19.?More Import ant to the people of Ketchikan than the European war and Its influence Is the question of adequate transpor tation facilities on the Seattle-Ketchi kan route, according to Mayor John R. Beegle, of Ketchikan, who is in this < Ity on his way to San Francisco. That the intercity trade between the two places could be increased in val ue by many thousands of dollars through bettor commercial connec tions is the mayor's belief. "You can't buy what you want if you can't get it to your home," said Mayor Beegle at the Hotel Stevens, '"and in that statement you sum up the difficulties experienced in Kotchi kan by the people of the northern city. The inhabitants, more prosper ous than ever before this season on account of good markets for copper and pink salmon, have been willing to buy liberally in Seattle, but have been unable to do so. "The opening of Anchorage as the southern terminus of the Alaska rail road is causing the ships to come to Ketchikan with capacity cargoes for the westward Alaskan cities, and no room for the orders of Ketchikan citi- i 7.enR. Even fresh vegetables have i been scarce in the north thiB year be- i cause of the shipment of machinory I xnd hcacy implements to Anchorage. I point of the steamship company is a I serious one. Business in Ketchikan 1 and, in fact, in most all Alaska points, is distinctively a Bummer business. The companies must make enough profit in four months to offset an * increasing loss on shipments during ' tro remaining eight months. The peo- 1 plo of Ketchikan, however, bolieve 1 I l hat If more boa to were placed on the 4 run during the rush season the com panies would come nearer to realiz ing an annual profit In the four-month period than at present." ?
