FURTHER CONTROVERSY IS CAUSED IN THE WEYERHORST ISSUE1 i Joseph Weyerhorst today filed a supplemental surveyors' report of ex penditures on the Weyerhorst group? of lode claims located on Douglas Isl and showing that 1500 worth of work has been performed on each claim in the group. John Rustgard. as attorney for Weyerhorst also filed a brief in sup port of the report, contending that development work for patent on a min ing claim may be performed after the expiration of the period of publica tion, as part of the work in this case was done. He also contended that all work done by alleged trespassers on a mining claim may be cited by the prior claimant as part of his de velopment work. This action on me pan 01 wever horst is pursuant to a notice from the officers of the local land office re quiring him to show cause why the application or patent to the lode claims should not be rejected for the reason that $500 worth of work had not been done on or for the benefit of each of the claims in the group. The Weyerhorst claims are located on Douglas Island near Swanson Creek, opposite Juneau, and Is the' subject of a controversy and adverse claim in the local land office. The Weyerhorst claims were located a couple of years ago and an adverse claim was filed a short time later by Frank Perrie. who claims to have had the claims located for a number of years. Perrie also claims that he ha3 performed the annual assessment work on the claims *or each year since their orlg'nal location and that they were not open to entry by any one.

COUNCIL NOW PREPARED ON WATER ISSUE (Continued From Page One) pony would adYtso, In view of tho ser iousness of the present situation. It is solely on tho request of these var ious groups that I am hero this even ing." Granite Creek Plan. Mr. Thane stated there were two propositions the people of Juneau could turn to, Granite creek or Sal mon creek. Mr. Thane went Into a very thorough and detailed discussion of the two creeks, fclB remarks show ing engineering Information. Granite creek, said Mr. Thane, while capable of furnishing an absolute supply of water during the summer months would hardly bo adequate during tho winter months. A dam would of ne cessity have to be constructed, which would entail great expense. There would bo much rock work occass.'oned and one of tho chief contentions would bo the obtaining of the right to use the water of Granite creek from the various concerns holding optional pos session. Mr. Thano also stated that to his mind there would also be great danger of polutlon. Salmon Creek Plan. The Salmon Creek proposition, how ever was best suited to the needs of | Juneau, according to Mr. Thane's es I tlmatlon. There la a reservoir and i also a dam. The city could tap the 1 water for Its supply a short distance from the lower wheel, then sink a caisson. The overflow would thus be allowed to go Into tho bay. Tho Al aska Gastincau company would In ev |ery way render all assistance to the city for such a Bystem. The piping for th^ system would cost at least $20,000. The cost of both terminals with pumps, a 50 horse power Dels sel engine would bo another cost of approximately $20,000, but this would Insure a half million gallon supply dally. Tho entire cost of bringing present mains would bo In round num bers. about $50,000. Method of Financing. The method of undertaking this en terprise would *ue for thirty or forty persons actively Interested In the community to underwrite the system, then Issue bonds redeemable within n certain period. These bonds, would of course, bo Interest bearing, replied Mr. Thane, and the entire system could be offered to the city which would represent an ent're equipment. The group of underwriters should bo nlllowed some *refit for their trouble but this would bo satisfactorily ad lusted in tho difference between sov en per cent bonds and the profit which would ultimately be reached between fifteen of sixteen per cent. "Of course," said Mr. Thane, "I would bo my Idea that this group of under writers would be a representative group of Juneau citizens." Water Not Now Poluted. When Mr. Thane completed his for mal discussion he was asked to be "eatod at the counciimen's table and foln In the subsequent discussion. Vctlng Mayor Willis stated that re garding the present system of water mains. It would only bo a matter of a very short time before nearly tho en Mre system would necessarily be re placed. "Many mains are now leak ?ng," said Mr. Willis, "and I know from fact that this lc ono of the rea sons why there In a water shortage at present. Together with these leaks tho shortage Is aggravated by tho per s'stent refusal of the citizens to shut off their water Instead of allowing tap3 to remain open In order to pre vent freezing of their pipes." Fire Chief Frleman stated that for tho benefit of the councllmen present and the people of Juneau In general, he wished to report that diir'ng the afternoon, In company with others, he had made an Inspection and could authoritatively state that there was no lold Creek water entering the city mains now. Mr. Frleman said many citizens wero becoming needlessly ex c'ted. fearing polluted water was en tering the mains and causing tho present sickness. water for Analyrla. At this point Councilman Brltt asked that a resolution be adopted Instruct ing the city clerk to send a gallon of city water to the University of Wash ?ngton for a thorough test. Mr. Thane suggested thai with the gallon of 'he present city water there would also be sent a gallon of Salmon creek water. Both Ideas were adopted and Mr. Thane further suggested and stated If It was the wish of the coun cil. he would have the engineer de partment of the Alaska Gastlneau company prepare maps showing the drainage of the source of the two water supplies with all other data which would be In Itself complcto In formation for those making the an alysis. Mr. Thane's suggestion was chberfully adopted. The final admonishment to the special comm'ttce was to havo an au dience with Manager Lewis of the present water system, as soon as pos sible after his arrival In Juneau, which would be some time this month. Water for Fire Purposes. H. P. Crowther stated from the Goor of the chamber, that at any time he could be of service to the special wafer comm',ttea, giving engineer's advice, he would readily placo him self at the committee's disposal. Fearing the present cold snap might cause a water shortage, when water would be necessary, the council adopted a resolution authorizing the Are marshal to notify the Alaska El ectric Light &. Power company to turn nto tho city mains tho company's flow from Gold Creek. Tho council stated that this action would only bo deemed urgent in case of fire if tho regular supply was insufficient. A letter was ordered sont to Ed. Mar;, gerle of the Alaska Electric Light & Power company, notifying him of the council's act'on and thanking him for his offer which was made to the city through Councilman Miller.

WAR SIDELIGHT 8 + ? + A king's mesengcr, returned to Lon don, tells of a recent casualty of war which he deplores. At Mark Ker i there Is a small British naval Btaff employed by the Greek government.. An officer who had risen from Its ranks went Into an Athens restaurant, whereupon ono of the Baron Schenck staff, having cocked his eye at the newcomer, spat ostentatiously In his direction. Tho Britisher insisted to the manager thct, as there were ladles present, this offensive German de part. The latter refused, and tho Br.'t isher told him in Greek that when he did leave ho would be thrashed on the street. Tho German fnlsely declared that he understood any Greek, but upon leaving was followed to the street and was felled by the Britisher with one solar plexus blow. At the hospital the doctor informed the Ger man that he was dying. "All right," came the retort, "do not make a fuss about it, 1 brought It on myself." "That was not a bad sort,'1 concludes the story-teller." Dr. Narlm Boy, secretary of the Young Turk party, stated in Berlin that Turkey Is plentifully supplied with fopd and raw materials which she will share with Germany when trans-' portatlon is arranged. Ho claims 30, 000,OOo kilograms of cotton can bo spared, and 10,000,000 k'los reserved in Turkish homes, as well as 88,000, 000 pounds of copper. About 8000 dogs have been used in connection with military operations of the Central Powers, the guard and ambulance dogs being of great bcr vice. Request was made some time ago to return from the United States to Germany all trained German sheep 1 ilogs In this country . The British foreign ofllcc announces that 109 bags of parcel post mail from the United States seized on a Swedish steamer were found to contain rub ber and were consigned to n Swedish forwarding agent for material destined for Germany. Zoppel'n raids have reduced Lon don's fire loss, according to leading 'Ire Insurance publications, by mak- , inc people more careful and watchful and by training them to act instantly in time of fire. WASHINGTON ? Inventors have been flooding the war department with suggestions since the outbreak of the European war, the board of or dnance and fortifications having re- j viewed an avcrago of three hundred proposals a month, acordlr.g to Its nnnual report made public recently. A now system has been Inaugurated under which tho department heads will pass on these suggestions in the first Instance, relieving the board of much useless labor, as many of them have no value. A Paris dispatch declares tho Green election a farce, stating that only one third of the 700,000 voters cast bal lots. Venezllos supporters declare !t a victory, as ho requested followers not to vote. Tho United States has again pro tested to tho presence of British cruisers off tho port of New York. Britain denied that her cruisers had come within tho three-mile limit at the time of the vrst protest sent after the Danish steamer VInland was pur sued to this port. The Greek Prime Minister Bkoul oudis, in an interview with the Lon don Daily Chronicle's correspondent, sayB: "Wo are at the most critical moment of our history. The future Is black as night, but the time has come when the truth should be known about Greeco's attitude and Greece's policy. My country has been maligned; her government has been attacked. Yet the fault is not ours. It Is the Pour Power Allianco, not we, who are res ponsible. Tho allies have flouted and angered Greece, instead of dealing with us frankly. If tbo allies had come frankly to Greece and said, 'Come in with us. Wo want your aid. You may count on clearly defined re compense ct the end of the struggle," Greece could not havo hesitated for a single minute. Instead. England and Franco began by demanding sacrifices from Greece." A New York Times correspondent states that women are digging the Berlin subway, and in project to tun nel under the Spree river, women are employed as shaft-sinkers. Iron-work ers, pipe-fitters and riveters. Middle aged women armed with night-sticks serve as city watchmen.
