EXPANSION PLANS
SEATTLE, Dec. 5.? The Alaska
Steamship Company has definitely de
cided to boy two moro modern steam
freighters, if it can get the type of
vessel desired and also has negotia
tions under way for chartering its
Noire liner Victoria for winter voyag
es in the San Francisco-Oriental route
according to Information obtained
yesterday afternoon from John H.
'lunch, general freight and passenger
agent of the corporation.
Bunch Intends to leave tomorrow
night for San Francisco in connection
with the negotiations for chartering
the Victoria. From San Francisco he
wi'l eo to Chicago, where he will meet
Vice-President and General Manager
P. W. Baxter, of the steamship com
pany. There they will confer with
F. C. Elliott, president of the White
Pass & Yukon system, in regard to
an exchange of rates and other busi
ness connected with Northern traffic
next spring and summer. From Chi
cago. Baxter and Bunch will travel to
the Atlantic coast to look for two
suitable steam freighters. The com
pany has received a number of offers
of Great Lake freighters.
s<-m? time age the Alaska Steam
ship Company purchased the Great
luikes freighters Bennington and Bur
llngton for its Alaska route. The two
f-?icht?r? are now being converted
into oil burners in New York. Later
they will shift to Philadelphia to load
cargoes for the Pacific coast. They
will sail from Philadelphia January
15 and arrive here the middle of
March, making the voyage by way of
the strait of Magellan. Baxter and
Bunch will inspect the work on the
two vessels.
Most of their time In the east, how
ever. will be given to looking for the
two additional freighters which the
company has decided to purchase.
In regard to the Nomo liner Vic
toria, the company has received a
number of offers of charters, the best
being in the San Franclsco-Orienta!
route, with Hongkong as the far east
ern temlnus. This Is the route from
which the Victoria was operated from
Tacoma years ago by the Northern
Pacific railroad in conjunction with
the steamships Olympla and Tacoma
? The Tacoma was caught In the ice
near Vladivostok while trying to run
; the Japanese blockade In the Russo
Japanese war and fell an easy prey
I to one of the Mikado's warships. She
, was seized as a war prize and sold by
the Japanese government. Since then
j she has operated under the Japanese
| flag, taking the name of Shikotan Ma
I ru.

j tion now known as the Alaska Steam

KELP BEDS HAVE
GREAT POSSIBILITIES
?+?
A year's output of potash from the
kelp of Puget Sound would bring $S.
000.000 at the present war tlmo pric
es. according to Professor George B
Rlgg. of the botany department, of
'ho University of Washington. Dr.
Rlgg surveyed tho present status of
tho kelp industry In a popular sctcnce
'e'eture on the campus Wednesday.
Kelp Is abundant and easily acces
sible In the Sound, ho said, and throo
factories might bo kept busy working
every day of the year, each produc
ing 5.000 tons of muriate of potash
vearly. Each would consume 600 tons
of the seaweed dully. Ordinarily the
year's production of 15.000 tons of pot
aeh on tho sound would be worth
*600.000. tho average price being al
moist $40 per ton. At the present
time It brings about $40 a ton.
Fifty thousand tons of kelp could
he harvested yearly along tho Pacific
coast, Dr. Rlgg asserted.
The beds lie from Mexico to Alaska,
xnd are of course not all commercial
ly accessible.

ALASKA GROWTH
IS SHOWN BY
INCREASED TRADE
SEATTLE, Doc. 7.?Alaska's com
merce will exceed $100,000,000 this
year, an increase of more than 40 per
cent, as compared with last year. As
only $2,000,000 of this amount can be
attributed to the government approp
riation for railroad construction, tho
Increase Is regarded ns coming from
development. The projects now un
der way and contemplated for 1916
will be 20 per cent, greater than that
of this year.
Merchants and commercial men
of both Portland and San Francisco
according to newspaper clippings just
received by J. L. McPherson, secre
tary of tho Alaska bhreau of tho So
p.ttlo Chamber of Commerce, are cast
ing envious eyes at tho Northern tree
upon which hangs the golden commer
cial plum, and Alaskans, without any ;
Ill-feeling towards Seattle, are encour
aging them to become competitors
for tho trade. The Northerners ft- j
guro thoy have nothing to loso by
competition and something might be
gained.
Among those who have recently de- j
Uvercd speeches before commercial
organizations In Portland and San:
Francisco urging these cities to look;
to the North for business are Bbhop
P. T. Itowe of the Episcopal diocese |
of Alaska, and James Wickcrsham.
delegate in Congress from Alaska,
both warm friends of Seattle.
Portland Urged To Try
Wlckersham was informed that the
project to establish o line of steam- j
ships between Portland and Alaska i
two years ago failed because the ves
sels were unable to get any return
freights. He then encouraged Port-.
land to make another try for the
trade next year, when cargoes of coal
from the Matanuska fields will be of
fered.
"These are just straws which show
which way the wind Is blowing," de
clared McPherson. "The bureau has
made a lot of friends in Alaska, and
we have straightened out n number
of misunderstandings. San Francis
co and Portland are constantly after
the Northern trade. They never- let
an opportunity slip, but having tho
advantage of the short haul, Seattle
has a shade tho best of it.
"Tho quickness with which San
Francisco can grasp a situation was
demonstrated this summer, when an
timony began to rise In prices. As
joon as the season opened, ore buy
ers from San Francisco went into
Fairbanks and other parts of the Ter
ritory looking for business. It sim
oly Indicates that tho Northern trade
is something upon which Soattlc
should keep an ever watchful eye,
md the efforts to unite the Torrltory
md Seattle in close bonds of friend
hip never should bo relaxed.?(J. J.
Underwocd In Seattle Times.)

tho war Lord Kitchener said to him:

Mr. Redmond added: "It is not 6,

been sent from Ireland?a perfectly
