ALASKA NOTES I The big drive at the Uacum Fort was a pronounced success, according to those who attended. $5,500 was subscribed by the soldiers, which added to the sum already subscribed totals nearly $ I.'1.000- a splendid sum when it is considered that but a lit tle over 200 men are at present sta tioned at the Post. Fifty pounds of gold, or about $11, 000 worth, was brought in to Valdez ^ist week from the Valdez Creek property, which has been running a small crew of men. This is one of the best properties in the division and under good management would produce a foriune for the stockhold ers.— (Valdez Miner.) Reports coming from Marshal show that the camp is still In the ring. Several large clean-ups are reported as recently coming out of Willow Creek. Warren Nelson and Fred Cope have returned from a trip to Dan Creek, says the McCarthy News, where they witnessed several clean ups. Klopfer & Cmpany have clean ed up over $3,000 to date and Cliff Cayonette Is also doing well. Edward W. Roberts, who arrived at Nome recently from Council had to] abandon hope of mining this season! owing to an absolute lack of water. He has been unable to do a particle of mining this season. He has pre pared against a water shortage in the future by buying the Miller dredg-j er on Warm Creek which will later be installed on his ground on Crook ed river. The "Russian Kid” otherwise well known as A. W. Balzimier, recently sold his copper property on Dan Creek to Martin Harrais, and will receive $",0,000 on the deal, while still retaining certain interests. Mr.! Balzimier states that the property is at the head of Dan Creek, about 2G, mils from McCarthy and was origin-’ ally located by him about two years ago. Reports from Dexter Creek in the Second Division say that the dredge owned by Ayer, Kittleson and others located near the mouth of Dexter is now completed and the machinery . was turned over for the first time a few days ago. The dredge was brought down, Nome river from Hob son Creek during the past Spring1 and has been in process of construc tion since the snow disappeared. A prospector recently sent out a sample of ore from Nome, wet tests convincing him by the reaction that the ores contained platinum. He asked the assayers to wire in actual gold contents and if any platinum later to write by mail. He received $18 and a wire "some platinum,” which sent a thrill through him and he is now anxiously awaiting’ the arrival of the assay sheet. All the material for the dredge on Fairbanks Creek has been removed to the claim on which the dredge will be worked and the teams be engaged In the hauling have re turned to Fairbanks. Although the material has all been delivered it will be a few days before the dredge will be working owing to adjustments of a minor nature to be made, it is expected that several weeks work will b^ ahead at the dredge before the freezeup. Conditions In the Port Clarenpe section are better than In most of the other camps in the Seward Pen Insula. The tin dredge is losing no time and the work on Lost river is being pressed by those in charge. It is admitted that the outlook is growing better for the tin ore lodes in this district. The demand for tin is attracting mnch attention to this neglected field which has been the happy stamping ground of many pro moters. John Parser arrived from halibut Cove in one of the lust steamers and reports that section of the coun try in apr extremely prosperous con dition He says there will be about fopr hundred people there this win ter. nearly all of whom will be en gaged in the herring fishing business, according tp the Valdez Prospector. A skunk farm at Homer Spit, acrosa from Kacbemak Bay has been established. A mau named McEwen has a fax ranch on one of the group of Ywhon Islands near KachemaV Hay. An Indian also has a large tpx farm on one of the Islands, where be hat over 300 animals. William Gibbons and wife have established [ i fox fsrm at Aurora, across fromf Kacbemak The chrome iron mine at Port Cha tham is turning out good ore.

The Admiral Schley recently brought out fifty tons to the smelter at Tacoma. Two hundred tons were left on the dock for one of the next boats. Ilick Doherty’s sawmill at Port Chatham is now working full blast. Seldovia is booming, says Mr. Par ker. The new dock has just been completed. There are now four eat ing houses, three rooming houses, two pool halls and three grocery stores and several other business re cently started at this new town. The cannery at this place put up a good pack of salmon this summer. Jack Tansey d'd extremely well this season with his t i ll trap. He in-[ tends extending it out further next season. i Mr. Parker will return on the firstl boat leaving for the Westward to | look after his herring interests at1 Halibut Cove. GOODS EXCHANGED IN LIEU OF COIN BY BOLSHEVIK^ MOSCOW, Nov. 7.—The lock of1 money and the great depreciation of the Russian ruble has compelled the Soviet government to resort to the primitive form of trade,—ex change of goods. This form has been applied in Russia in a limit ed degree, because of lack of man ufacthred articles, the government giving the peasants agricultural ma ehnery, leather goods, nail, matches! and other such necessaries and re-1 eeiving the equivalent value In j grain. It is* the intention of the. Department of Food to introduce the exchange of goods system into internatoinal trade and for this pur pose it sent a special emissary to Norway to negotiate witli the Nor wegian government. ’Phone it to The Empire. No. 374. GREAT TASK BEFORE UNITED STATES IS AFTER THE WAR WASHINGTON, Nov. 7.—In the great task of internal reconsturc tion after the war, the War Indus tries Board seems cetain to contin ue in existence and play a large part in the transformation of war manufacturing back to peace time production. This is one feature of the government's program for eas ing the nation's business from the pitch of war to the pursuits of peace without conculsing it in the pro cess. In a sense, the program is tentative, because its formulation has just begun. Nevertheless the planning for peace is giving all gov ernment agencies in Washington these days material 'for as syste matic thought as the prosecution of war. Industrial reconstruction, next to demobilization of the army, is probably the most important phase of these plans. How to stop the manufacture of shells, of guns, of army and navy supplies, without stopping the industrial wheels which made them, and to furnish new work for these wheels, is a problem which agencies of the War Indus tries Board will be called on . to Rolve. This means that the hun dreds of industrial and commercial leaders who have been called to Washington will have to continue their services for essential peace work, or substitutes for them to be found. SOVIET NEWSPAPERS PLEASED OVER DELAY CAUSED GERMANS MOSCOW, Nov, 7.—Soviet news papers were enthusiastic over the news of the destruction of Tunnel 36 on the Trans-Siberian Railway east of Irkutsk in the Lake Raikal section, and declared the hindrance would delay American and Japan ese troops froiji six months to one year in their movement to relieve the Czecho-Slovaks. The Izvestia says the Soviet forces exploded 1, 040 pounds of dynamite in the tun nel and destroyed it completely. This tunnel is one of a series of forty-eight which carries the railway through the bases of moun tains and hills jutting into Lake Raikal. NEW ZEALAND NOW POPU LAR WITH AMERICAN TOURISTS New Zealand is now the goal «f the many tourists from the United States, more having visited the Do minion in 1917 than in previous years, according to Commerce Re ports, which say: "The New Zealand Governmenl has a very complete tourist depart ment, with two equally good tourist stations—one at Rotorua in North Island and the other in tlie vicinity of Mount Cook in South Island. These are not only very popular for New Zealanders, but for Austral ians and Americans as well. “The rapid development of the rural districts of New Zealand by the farmers, dairymen and stock raisers, together with the general use of the motor car, has brought to the fore the necessity of better highways. The campaign for this improvement will open in earnest on the return of the soldiers at the close of the war. Perfection Oil Heater stands guard against dampness and chill in the home.
