BROAD PASS ORE
AGAIN DISCUSSED
CORDOVA. 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.)

in Alaska will remember the Misses

ritan hospital at Valdez two years ago

FREE BOOK SYSTEM
ADOPTED AT SEWARD
SEWARD. Oct. 25.?At a meeting
of the Seward school, board, held last
night at the residence of Mrs. Frank
U Ballalne. they adopted the "free
j book system" for the Seward public
| schools to take effect immediately.
The plan provides for the school board
purchasing all new books ordorod this
year, and loan them out to the schol
ars for their study free of charge,
making the teacher responsible for
their safe return. In cases of need
less damage done to a book the stu
dent will be fined according to the
damage done. Hereafter all books
will be furnished free to scholars and
In case a pupil desires to own his own
text book he can do so by paying the
cost price to the teacher. This sys
tern has been successfully tried out
in many other cities, and is hoped
to improve the school system In this
| city. .
JOE JOURDEN, OF NOME
IS FROZEN TO DEATH
NOME. Oct. 23.?Joseph J. Jour
den, a pioneer merchant of Nome, was
frozen to death the other night on
i the river, having wandered away from
the road during a storm which sud
dently blew in from the north. 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.
Jourden had been on the creeks
looking after some mining property
in which he is interested and was
caught in the storm while returning
to town. He had been id the riveis
as his clothing was frozen when the
body was found.?(Nome Nugget.)

WOMEN AT WAR
OVER AT SHOW
SAN FRANCISCO ? The cat clubs
are fighting again.
D. O. Lively, chief of the Exposi
! Hon livestock deportment, probably
will get all scratched up before he
gets through with the cat show
planned for November 27. He had
arranged for a nice, friendly cat show,
with Grimalkin receiving plaqno for
the tribe.
Then sprang up the Pacific Cat
Club and the California Cat Club as
rivals for the honor of having one of
their members appointed judge of all
tho cats.
Lively appointed Mrs. Jack Gordon,
who has written a book about cats,
as judge. She is a member of the Pa
cific Cat Club. Immediately Mrs. E. S.
Warren of Hay ward, member of the
California Club and aspirant for the
honor, started a war. She and all her
friends have refused to have anything
to do with the show. Further devel
opments are promised.?(Chronicle.)
"SAKE" CUPS ARE DENOUNCED.
TOKYO ? 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 spirit
of the protest was that this custom had
the tendency to encourage the drinking
of spirituous liquors. 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.
Sake is the native alcoholic drink
of the Japanese people, corresponding
somewhat to the whiskey of the United
States and Great Britain and tho vod
ka of Russia.?(Spokesman Review.)

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.

SPY USES CHIMNEY 8MOKE.
A French papers gives the story of
Bmoko from a chimney being employed
to give Information to the enemy. The
members of a battalion of French In
fantry that had moved Into a well
covered country and thought them
selves concealed were Inundated with
shells. The ofllcers were astonished
at the accuracy with which these shells j
were delivered and sought to find out
who was giving signals to the enemy.
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. These signals, which had
been agreed upon between the spy and
the enemy, readily informed the Ger
