With re ard to a right of way through Key tone (Jauyou, the laws of the United states and the laws of Alaska read as follows : - Passage of Railroad through Jauyons—That any railroad company whose right of way, or whose track or road bed upon such right of way, passes through auy canyon, pass or detile, SHALL NOT PREVENT any other railroad coin puny from the use and oc cupancy of said canyon, pass or defile for the purpose of its road in common with the road first located.”—(30 Stac L. 407. Chap.299. Sec 3.) The Alaska Home Railway has relied upon the maintenance of the law and this confidence has not been misplaced As a resuit of the uncalled for shoot ing in the canyon, two offenders are in jail. While some alarmists have called for troops, the civil authorities have proven themselves amply able to pre serve the public peace. The thanks of the whole community are duo Judge Harlan and Judge Scott, for the altogether admirable manner iu which they have handled thie wnfortu uate affair; also to Marshal Wybrand and his level headed assistant, Marsha Dooley. _ ( The Washington authorities have sent ont troops as a precautionary measure, but as a matter of fact the civil authorities are equal to any j •emergency. Tue Prospector ” feels it io due the city of Valdez to extend its congratulations for the very sensi ble way all the people have conducted themselves and the way the authorities have maintained law and order. Violence and lawlessness can ! not be tolerated and the public senti ment of the whole country will see to it that order and peace are maintained. The reports that coyote hoies had been piepared by the Guggenheim men was apparently borne out, when three of th( were found and exploded. They were in the first rook cut, about 40 feet beyond the point reached by the leader.' of the Home Railway employ- j ees. it is fortunate indeed that the I latter were stopped before reaching j these boles for bad they been exploded j the casualties would have been far in excess of the present number. It Las come to our observation that agents of the Katalla road are making all kinds of otters to the laborers em* ployed here, in the effort to get them down to the Guggenheim metropolis. While we -are always glad t o see a laboring man better his position by getting more salary, we don’t like to see them ohange jobs on mere prom ises. When Mr. Katalla Man says be will give more wages than is paid hare, see if he will sign a contract to do so. Don’t go to Katalla nntil you hare a contract stating how much you will receive.

Discoveries of simi-lignite coal In immense deposits on the Itugruk river and an increasing output from the mines opened here have reduced the price of fuel on Seward peninsula. Frooj Washington, a report has just been issued by the geological depart ment which shows that the production of copper has doubled each season for the past two years. The prophecy is made that from now on phenomenal increases will result from the greater, number of mines that are being opened up, and the fact that many which have been blocked out will, with the instal* lation of new machinery, become big producers. Alaska is declared to be the district which in a few years will control the copper markets of the world. A feature of the report is the thorough manner in which the Copper river country, and the islands of the Alaskan coast are illustrated by col lored maps showing the extent of the copper- bearing areas.

Cider, soda pop, and other soft drinks are served, and large crowds are attracted. The resorts are doing more busiuess than ever, but it is be lieved the impetus is due to the nov elty will soon wear off. Married at Portland Announcements have been received of the marrirge of Simeon Poot and Miss Mary A. Preschern at Portland, Sep. 11,1907. The wedding was a quiet one and the couple, after a short honey moon trip, left Seattle for Val dez on the Bertha. Seattle, Sept. 20—Following is the text of the resolution adopted by the Seattle Chamber of Commerce yester day endorsing the Home Railway: “Whereas, the Alaska Home Railway project was heretofore referred to the Committee on Transportation and said committee reported as follows:—‘Seat tle, Sept. 24, 1907—Thfe Committee on Transportation beg to report that they have investigated the Alaska Home Railway project and recommend that the Chamber of Commerce, if consist ent, pass a resolution endorsing the en terprise. < Signed) J.

Cordova Mines Sold "Two copper mines near this city has practically been sold within the last •few days says the Cordova ’Alaskan. The -Cordova ..Cppper -Company”^ mine, situated about a mile and a half from the railroad dook, has been bargained for and practically sold to an eastern syndicate for 1200,000. The head office of the concern has been no tified of the deal through their agent here, and as soon as word can be re ceived from them the property will be turned over to the new owners. This property, better known as the Shepard claims is considered one of the best mines in this immediate locality. The other group of four claims sold ! are located at the head of Cordova bay ! and are a group of the new strike made ! by Tremble and Powell some five or six weeks ago. The claims were sold to Mr. Frank Becker of Seattle, for a cash consideration. It is the intention of the new proprietors to begin work on both properties jast as soon as pre liminary arrangements can be made. The Kelly brothers and *os. Diggs of this city are heavily interested in both properties. ORDINANCE NO. 48 ORDINANCE TO COMPEL CHILDREN OF SCHOOL AGE TO ATTEND THE VALDEZ PUBLIC SCHOOL.
