C., correspondent for the Post-In telligencer, sends the following: Mineral production increased more rapidly in Alaska last year than in any of the states or other territories. In Washington, the gain in output of miueral products was very large, and nearly kept pace with the great in crease for the United States at large. Oregon did not make quite as good a showing. The complete returns of the mineral production of all the states and terri tories are soon to bo published by the United States geological survey, and ' comparisons, wholly favorable to 1900, will be made with the preceding year. For the whole country, the production of all minerals last jrear amounted to $1.902, 505, 20G, a gain of $278,570,480, or more than 17 per cent. The most notable thing about the Alaska output, as compared with 1905, was the production of gold; but in a smaller way the increase in copper pro duction was quite as notable. Alaska is rapidly becoming a great copper field, and although no great number of mines has yet been developed on a commercial basis, it is certain that many properties will reach the ship ment stage within the next few years. The rapid gain in gold production in Alaska this year is well understood; the increase was far larger than that of any other political division of the United States. No coal mines have been developed on a large scale in Alaska, but the production of this mineral in the northern part of the terri tory for mining purposes showed a large gain last year as compared with 1905. The production of coal in Alaska in 190G wa9 5,541 tons, as against 3,774 , tons in 1905; the production of copper was 8,085,010 pounds, as against 4,900, 1 S00 pounds; of gold, 1,000,029.91 tine i ouuces (based on mine reports), as \ against 750,101.28; of lead, eight tons, | as compared with no production the year before; and of silver, 100,908 flue , ounces, as against 132,734. These are ! the first complete figures of mineral j production in 1900. The following | table gives the values of mineral pro | ducts in Alaska in 1905 and 1900: 1995 1900 I Coal 8 13,250 S 17,974 | Copper 759,034 1,G70,330 \ Gold 15,030,000 22,030,791 ! Lead 912 I i Silver 80,105 111,206 Total S 10,483,759 5:3,871,055 The total does not correspond ex : ' actly with the separate items named ; i in the table, but in the totals are in i eluded a few figures under "miscel j laneous production." George F. Cotterill Democratic state senator, made a speech before the King County Democratic club in which he referred to the newly appointed judge * ; I to succeed James Wickersham in the i ! i i third divisiou in Alaska as "the kind of > a man Eastern influences are able to I I find a place for in a country about | which they know little." , I "Silas II. Reed came originally from oue of the country counties of Illinois , and was an attorney much like any J other attorney in the farmer couuties," ! said Senator Cotterill. "Evidently he wanted to better hia condition, although he had been prosecuting attorney. He was appointed register of the land of fice in Oklahoma, and when state officers were elected he managed to get the nomination for attorney general on | the Republican ticket, but he was de feated with the rest of the ticket for state offices. He very promptly began looking around for another office, and the first chance was the Alaska judge ship. He betrayed his knowledge of Alaska when he said it was a country where there were no hotels with baths. His experience as a lawyer has had ta do with water rights, farms, and such subjects, and he has no experience with the problems that a judge will meet with on the coast and in mining coun tries. This is another instance where | Eastern influences have saddled on a new country defeated, disgruntled | politicians." According to Judge Wickersham Alaska is already under territorial gov ernment and doean't need any partica ; iar legislation in order to accomplish the very things for which the Juneau convention contended. According to I the Judge Alaska is as much of a terri tory of the United States as Washing ton was before statehood, and if that be true then there is no reason why a govornor should not be appointed to co-operate with the legislature to be elected. ?
