Oct. 18.?Among those who have property In the Broad Paas country are Don S. Ray and W. M. Springer, the former claiming that the ore there assays from $2 to $360 per ton. Springer says he panned ore in the leads on the property worth $45 to the ton. These men were recently In Seward on their way Outside. "The extent of the Broad Pass for matlon is twenty-five miles long," said Springer. "It has all been located and all shows strong mineralization. The claims from Costello creek through to the Ohio creek district show values. "There is no chance for a man to put in a mill on any of the ground now and make money, bnt when the rail road reaches that district it will be a different matter. "The Guggenheims and Gastlneau people could not agreo with owners on details or options, but there are others. "When It comes to giving an option j on ground of the obvious values that this ground contains for throe years with no payment down, nothing do ing. We can hold it until the railroad is finished Just as well as the Guggen heims. The report by Dunkle that there is not enough ore in right to load a donkey shows that the Guggs in this case are either knaves or fools, has been the other part. "There ire practically no miners left in the Broad Pass district now, all of them having finished their as sessment work and have come out for; the winter. There were probably 100 men in the district during the sum-j mer."?(Cordova Times.) LAKINA MINE SOON TO SHIP COPPER CORDOVA. Oct. 29.?Brer since J. L. Harper, of Seattle, took a bond on the group of claims owned by the takina Copper Company of Spokane In the Kennecott district there have been rumors of big things to he done with that property, and recent de velopments appear to have Justified the rumors. Mr. Haper has had a group of men at work for several weeks working out trulls and build ing a wagon road from the mine to the railway at Long Lake station, and when that gentleman appeared in person three weeks ago with an ad ditional force of miners and laborers the activities were materially in creased. Two weeks ago Col. A. M. Dewey r Seattle came in. accompan ied by ue>rge B. Baker and other Washington capitalists, and it is now reported that the funds for the mov ing of a large tonnage or ore to the smelters at Tacoma are assured. While prospecting the property on Castle Mountain the miners in the employ of Mr. Harper are said to have opened up a large body of high-grade shipping ore. and this is now being sacked for hauling as soon as road conditions make such movement pos sible. Those familiar with the Ken necott district freely predict for the Lakina Mines a future as bright as that of the Bonanza or Jumbo. Mr. Harper Is now building a wagon road from the mouth of mill creek to the mine on the mountain, from which point the ore will be hauled direct to the railroad without transfer. A camp for the accommodation of forty men Is now being equipped on the moun tain side near the mine and overlook ing the valley of the Lakina river and tho towering peaks of Castle Mountain. Mount Blackburn, Bell Mountain and glaciers, and the majes tic heights of several other lunges. All of which spells "activity* for this mining district already made famous by the greatest copper producing mines In America. Col. Dewey passed through Cordova yesterday on his way to the outside. oT a Times reporter he spoke in the highest terms of what he called "the Harper plan" of mine management. The Colonel is enthusiastic over the ore showing on Castle Mountain, and predicts a bright future for the Kakina Copper mines. These mines are own ed by a syndicate of influential men in Seattle and Duluth, for whom Col. Dewey made the trip of Inspection. Mr. Harper being the local represen tative and manager in Alaska. Among those interested In the property may be mentioned Georgo B. Baker# own er or much business property in Se attle; J \V. and \Y. J. Kahlo, owners of the Crescent Manufacturing Com pany of Seattle; William H. Plnck, retired Seattle Jeweler. C. K. DesCamp and others. The Lakina Copper mines consist of a group ot,--claims on which devolop ment work han been under way for several years, tut not until J. L. Har per oppeared on the scene during the present season has anything worth mentioning been accomplished. The principle ore Bhowing is of native copper, bornlte and copper gldnce, all valuable ore as found In this dis trict. The Bonanza and the Jumbo mines carries these same ores at the surface.?(Cordova Times.) __ ??* FORMER VALDEZ NURSES PROSPERING IN STATES VALDEZ, Oct. 23.?Many persons in Alaska will remember the Misses Graco K and Gertrude Holmes, who wore connected with the Good Sama ritan hospital at Valdez two years ago and will be pleased to learn that they are both prospering in the States.

His death adds another to the long list of tragedies which have resulted there since the discovery of gold, as the arrival of winter has never failed in claiming one or two victims. Jourdcn is an old timer in that dis trict having been one of tbo first of the miners to come north after the discovery of gold on tho beach there. He engaged in the mercantile busi ness and later opened a saloon on Steadmnn avenue, where he wan en gaged in business at the time of his death.

A protest, addressed to Count Okuma, the premier, against the awarding of sake cups for merito rious services, was read and enthusi astically adopted at a recent meeting of leading temperance advocates, both men and women of Tokyo.

The presidents of the National Temperance league, the National Woman's Christian Tem perance union and the Foreign Auxil ary of the National Woman's Christian Temperance union were delegated to wait on Count Okuma and present the protest.

Tho grout dynamic lorco tbat pro polif the German war machine is the kalaer. Whether in Berlin or traveling by train or motor to ve^'is war fronts, or aff'tho Imperial grand army head quartern In Northern Franco the Ger man war lord is In constant touch with every detail of his* armies and govern ment. declares a remarkable volume just published in Germany. Tho author is a correspondent of a Berlin newspaper, who has been prl vlligod to remain with the kaiser over since tho latter took to the flolcl. If not In porsonal conference with his cabinet officers, who come to the field headquarters frequently, the kai sor is always in touc^ with them by wire. The first floor of the imperial field abode, the correspondent explains la a vorltable tolephono exchange through which tho kaiser can have im mediate communication with his gen i-rals In the east or wost on short no tice. Those wires also stretch out to ev ery neutral capital of Europe, enabling; the war lord to converse with his dif ferent ambassadors. More wires con nect with the big German wireless ? atlons, giving the orders to the Im perial Held office scope, if noccssary. The kaiser's special train in which he makes his frequent dashes to the eastern and western fronts, consists of 10 coaches, modern, but not luxur iantly furnished. At first the train was painted a bluish-white color, so that soldiers and civilians could recog nize the Imperial traveler and cheer him, but fear that hostile aviators might drop bombs on the royal equip ago causes the train to be repainted from time time In various colors. The kaiser Is protected while travel ing by a large forco of socret field police. The guards are seldom notice ablo, but are always near to make sure that no spies or dynamiters are prowl ing about. Cabinet ministers, court officials, doctors, military attaches, hair dress ers. chauffeurs and coachmen, says the writer, are included in the curious population which incade the town in which the general staff temporarily takes up quarters. The kaiser Is often surrounded by almost his entire cabinet, despite their availability over the wire. These meet inga usually take place at filed head quarters In the morning. The kaiser always presides, with the chief of Btaff or chancellor at his immidiate right. Councils of war are always held at night. For HART SCHAFFNER & MARX suits see H. S. GRAVES the CLOTH ING MAN.

In a farm house at no great distance from the battalion a German, dis guised as a peasant, was found seated before a chimney In which was a great wood fire. The pseudo-peasant was alternately rising and lowering a chimney cover or screen, which caused the smoke to come from the chimney in long or short puffs as he desired. While doing this he looked through a window upon the field where the French battalion was performing its evolutions.
