FAIRBANKS FRIENDS ji
OF WICK AND ERWIN QUARRELj FAIRBANKS, Dec. 16. ? There Is considerable controversy here regard ing reports from Delegate James Wickersham and United States Mar- t shal L. T. Erwin concerning the de- l cision of the government to start rail- i road work from Nenana Instead of < Fairbanks. Each accuse the other of 1 knocking. Wickersham men here ac cuse Marshal Erwin of being n "but lusky." alleging that ho was called to ] Washington to answer charges against him and not as a representative of the people. Friends of Marshal Erwin i say that his only participation in . tho railroad controversy was to seek to have the decision to begin work at i Nenana and not at Fairbanks changed. They also allege that Dclegato Wick- ; ersham was not watching the game i in tho Interest of the people, or he I would have known in time to in- I tercede in behalf of Fairbanks be- : fore the decision was made. WICK SHOUTS GUGGENHEIM Dispatches from Washington say that Delegate Wickersham has de clared that antagonism of District Attorney W. N. Spence to certain Quggcnheim interosts at Valdcz is be hind the charges that have been made against him by the Democrats of tho Third Division. WOODCHOPPER TO SUCCEED TOFTY AS BIG TOWN ?*? FAIRBANKS. Nov. 29.?That the coming of spring will see the town of Tofty practically transplanted from its present location to a point on Sullivan creek, at the mouth of Wood chopper creek, is the statement of Dick Morris, of the Tofty Mercantile firm of Fowler & Morris, who arrived In Fairbanks Thursday evening from the lower river. The reason for the move is obvious, as pay of a richness heretofore unknown in the Hot Springs camp has been discovered on the Bock ground, on Sullivan creek. A town has already started there, according to Mr. Morris. There are three saloons already established and at least one mercantile house is open for business. Among the saloon men who have opened up In the now lo cation is "Mickey" Woods, of Tanana. Many of the buildings composing the new town have been moved down from Tofty. Fowler & Morris them selves still have their establishments at Tofty. but are planning either to move or build another store at Wood chopper.?(Fairbanks Times.) WHITEHORSE MINE TO OPERATE i WHITEHORSE, Dec. 10.?In a let ter to the editor of the Star, W. D. Greenough. writing from Seattle un der date of November 23, says condi tions on the outside have been very much against him but that the "Rubi con" has been crossed and that opera tions at the Pueblo copper mine will be started early in the spring. Mr. Greenough did not say in tho letter when he would leave for this place but It is thought that he, accom panied by Mrs. Greenough, who Join ed him on the outside a month ago, : will arrive in Skagwav on tho Princess Sophia, which is due thero Wednesday of next week, in which event they will be home a week from today. As the Pueblo mine was allowed to fill with water when work was sus pended there in September, of 1914, it will probably require from six to eight weeks to pump it out. Other wise there will be but little prelimi nary work to do. There are some thing over 7,000 cords of wood cut in the vicinity of the mine and ready for hauling in. Resumption of operations at the Pueblo means that work will be pro vided for fully two hundred men.? Whitehorso Star. MORE GOOD NEWS FROM LIVENGOOD ?+? FAIRBANKS, Nov. 29.?Last week, word was received from Tolovana that In drifting across their claim. Curry & Kettleson. on the Red claim, had found pay for a distance of 95 feet. More good news was received from their claim yesterday from a late ar rival from the new camp. A few days ago, the operators had drifted upstream for a distance of about 50 feet and had found better dirt than at the bottom of their shaft. At the upper end of the drift, it was stated that they were getting many pans that would run 50 cents each. Whllo the development work con tinues and while the town of Brooks is taking on quite a metropolitan appearance, no rapid headway is bo -Sapoodsoad eqt qiJM opvtn 3uj ALLMETAL WEATHERSTRIPS?

INTERIOR RAILWAY WORK IS TO BE FROM NENANA I - SEATTLE, Dec. 8.?Fairbanks, the ,'iterlor metropolis of Alaska, which stands to win so much by the con j-.ruction of a govornmont railroad In tlie Territory, will be temporarily crippled next summer by un agency which It was expected would greatly benefit that city, says J. J. Under wood in tho Seattle Times. Secretary of tho Interior Franklin K. Lane, according to a dispatch from the Times' correspondent at Wash ington, this morning Informed Dele gate James Wickersham, Alaska's Alaska's representative In Congress, that the Alaska engineering commis sion will begin construction of the road from two new points, one from Seward extending northwards, and the other from tho mouth of the Ne nana river southward to tho Ncnnna coal fields. The mouth of the Nenana Is about sixty miles below Fairbanks, and there is no doubt that a large por tion of the Fairbanks population will stampede to the new city which will thero be established. The secretary intlmatod to Judge Wickersham that the construction from the Nenana river to Fairbanks will be undertaken later. The work on tho section of road from Anchor ago to the- Matanuska coal fields will bo continued. Whilo Fairbanks may receive a tem porary setback by this plan it will hasten the time when the Interior country will benefit from railroad con struction as the thing that is badly needed In Fairbanks development is cheap fuel and this will be supplied from tho Nenana flolds. The construction of the short piece of road to connect this field with river transportation on tho Tanana, according to ithe estimate of tho Al aska Engineering Commission will bo $225,000. This is a part of the approp riation of approximately $9,000,000 which will be asked for by Secretary Lane. The estimates submitted to Con gress contemplate the construction of the rood to the Matanuska coal fields, but whether this will be finished next year, is dependent upon tho time when the money bccomos available. If no appropriation is made until the civil sundry bill passes work will bo suspended this winter. ICE AT ANCHORAGE BLOCKS FREIGHTER SEWARD. Dec. 10.?Although Har bormaster Locko and others sent from Anchorage by Lieut. Frederick Mears of tho Alaska Engineering. Commis sion to investigate Ice conditions at Goose Bay. across Cook Inlet from Anchorage, .reported .that tho ice thero was not as thick as at Anchor age. the Alaska Steamship company refused to send the big freighter Sew ard there to unload. Locke reported that the steamship could break her way through the ice to the cannery wharf at Goose Bay, but the company officials said that the ice field below Anchorage, where the floes from Knlk arm and Turn again Arm meet, would endanger the Rafoty of the vessel. The ice in Turn again Arm was reported heavier than at any other time in the last fivo years. Tho Seward is discharging hero her entire cargo of railroad material and supplies for the government' construc tion camp at Anchorage. Ah a result Anchorage will be virtually without fire protection this winter, the Sew ard's cargo Including complete equip ment for the Anchorage fire depart ment. The Alaska road commission is pre paring to keep the Seward-Anchorage trail passable all winter. One section of the trail near Glacier Crock is so obstructed by snowslldes and ice hat an entire day is required for the mail teams to travel twelve miles. Colonel Revell, the mail contractor, has five drags at work, keeping the trail open across Indian creek summit, where the snow already is several feet deep. There are twenty inches of snow at Anchorage. A light snow fell here, but the weather became milder yesterday and tho snow in Seward is melting. Unredeemed diamonds at big bar gains.
