The quicksilver mines at Choquak, ; Alaska, said to be the richest in the world, will be operated on a large scale next summer.

It is stated that "Red Ellis," owner of the Cliff mine, near Valdez, who has leased his property for five years, draws down $250 a day as his percentage. An arrival from Koyukuk now in the Fairbanks country says that there is a miner called Switz up there who could clean up a ?100,000 any season, is he so desired. Instead he is content to take out only sufficient to provide him with an annual grubstake.

Miss Hilda Evauson,a Juneau sten ographer, has thrown up her job 1o go to the Iditarod, where sho will marry Dan W. Sutherland, formerly U.S. mar shal in the First Alaska divisiou. Work has begun on the 200 stamp mill on the Ebner property at Juneau. The stamps weigh 1,500 lbs. each and will drop 105 times per minute. The ore is free milling aud averagos about $3.45 per ton. The company plans to continue to build until 1,000 stamps are installed. Juneau papers are lamenting the loss to the town of a glove manufacturer who has packed his plant and moved to British Columbia. The government refused to allow gloves made from deer skins to be shipped from Alaska, on the ground that it would be a viola ! tion of the game laws. The steamship Dolphin recently car ried from Alaska to Seattle a shipment of $225,000 in gold bullion. Purser Ira Cohen, who has heard about the recent thefts, took no chauces, but ate his meals in his stateroom where the gold j was stored. The same ship carried over 8100,000 in the registered mail. The pack of the Chilkoot Fisheries i company, above Haines, this year j amounted to 42,000 cases, and because it was 10,000 cases more than was ex pected, manager F. O. Burkhardt gave the Indian fishermen and their squaws 1 a potlatch dance at A. B. hall in Haines ! says an exchange. There were more , than 300 natives present. When paid off it was found that Jim Lee for six weeks fishing had earned $680, having caught 8,500 fish in that time. The crew was paid $25,000 for the season's work. 1 The P.-I. says: Having received a cablegram from Juneau that Slavon- j iaus at the Treadwell mine had decided I upon the murder of two Washington , street employment agency men, Cap tain of detectives Charles Tennant and Detectives Lee Barbee and Tom Hay- ( den met the Cottage City on her arri- j val here yesterday. The dispatch had stated that the Slavonians had ohosen four men by lot to do the deed, and 1 that the four were on the Cottage City. Four Slavonians on the boat were questioned, but soon convinced the sleuths that they were on their way to work in Eastern Washington. Tho ca blegram is thought to be the outcome of a plot. . 1. O'Connor mftolesak and Retail Dealer in mral The Seward Gateway of the 10th say?: Yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock a trag edy occurred at Knik in which thr ee men were shot. Sam Reinhart was kill ed outright, Ira Isaacs lies in a critical condition, and Bert Stewart was wound ed in both legs. The shooting occurred at Frank's roadhouee, but the cause of the trouble cannot be learned. Due to the increase in the number o prospectors and miners on the Kusko- i kwim river in Southwestern Alaska, and its tributaries, a new shipping com pany will be formed to operate between Seat tle and the Upper Kuakokwim next season. The first part of the route, between Seattle and Good news bay, to the south of Kuskokwitn bay, will be performed by vessels of over 1,200 tons. The second stage of t he journey, be tween Goodnews bay and Bethel, a, distance of 2S0 miles, will be performed by power schooners of a couple of hun dred tons burden. The third stage will be iu Hat bottomed stern wheel river steamers, from Betl.al to Tokotua, a distance of nearly 600 miles. Th<- name of the new company will be the Kusko kwitn Transportation company. The lditarod Pioneer say?: There is no denying the fact that the announce ment of the cabling of a brewery to lditarod City is the cau-e of much gen eral rejoicing. The news comes from Fairbanks and is to the effect that the Barthel Brewing company of that city is shipping the plant of the old Arctic brewery which they purchased last j winter. The water here has not keen all that it should be in quality, though nothing can be said about the quantity. For this reason many have found it difficult to drink much water. The j coming of the brewery will in a measure ! solve the problem, for the product of the Arctic plaut has been universally ; recommended for cooliug hot pipes, re moving cobwebs and taking the stains out of unimpeachable characters. Housewives find it useful in keeping the family together, and husbands have employed it in the solution of difficult business propositions. Taken with a j cheese sandwich it may be found a de lightful substitute for postum cereal. Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Murphy were among the passengers aboard the Cot tage City which arrived from Skagway yesterday says the Seattle P.- 1. When last seen in Seattle, Mrs. Murphy, who is nineteen years of age, was Miss Alice King the daughter of Rev. G. Clement King of Ballard. Now she is the wife i of an actor, as the result of a romance that began last spring aboard a Yukon river steamer bound from Whitehorse to Dawson. Mr. Murphy is a member Df the Howard stock company which returned on the Cottage City yesterday from a successful tour of Alaska. The company went north la9t May on the Cottage City. Miss King arrived in Skagway about the same time on the Dolphin. She was going to Fairbanks to visit a brother and by chance trav eled on the same river boat as the the atrical company. The trip down the river occupied several days. She and Mr. Murphy found each other much in | each other's company. They fell in love. Miss King continued to Fair banks while the company stopped to play at Dawson. When the company reached Fairbanks the marriage was solemnized. On the tug Equator are two cats. Baby and Darky, which are credited with being the first to herald the run of salmon up the (Jhignik river this year. On the night of June 14 the two cats ran about the deck and refused to go to sleep, in spite of the multitude of well-directed boots which were aimed at them by various members of the crew. The next morning the river was full of leaping salmon. The fiist through train to the town of Chitina, on line of the Copper river railroad arrived there on the 17th drawing a long line of cars loaded with building materials and supplies. This event also marks the completion of the railroad to mile 135, the most difficult part of the road with the deep cuts and tunnels. The remaining 65 miles are ail graded. The road is also connected with the Fairbanks trail, thus insuring Interior Alaska quicker time, travel and mail. The August number of the Sitka Th linnet contains the following an nouncement in big, bold type: The Sitka Training school has closed its doors forever! On its ground which a few days ago was dotted with happy boys and girls, a cont raotor and force of men are hard at work and by the coming of another summer the Sheldon Jackson school will stand leady to carry on the work so uobly done iu the oM buildings. The same paper also says: For twenty-eight years the old school has stood as the vanguard of native education in Alaska, but the tooth of time aud the unceasing tramp of growing feet have worn the build ings until they are no longer service able. The new buildings which take their place will have the capacity to carry on the work so nobly begun. A large school building with gymnasium, a building for large girls, one for little girls, two buildings for the boys and a laundry with a central heating plant are in the plans. Of the buildings to be replaced by the new ones much has been written, we will say again that the Boys' Home, the original building of the group, was built by Dr. Jackson in 1881, out of lumber he got from a wrecked flsh cannery at Old Sitka. The Girls' Home was built out of logs, old and new lumber in 1881. The laundry was made out of a lot of old sheds about twenty years ago and equipped with second-hand machinery. The ma chinery has been patched until now only the patches remain. Only four pupils remain iu the school. All the rest have been sent to their homes or placed in good hands. The teachers have in part gone elsewhere. Miss Kale, Miss Dill and Miss Crockett will teach in the public schools of the West Coast states. Miss Doren is teaching in the native public school of Juneau. Mr. Beck and family have gone to his old home in New York to enjoy a well earned vacation. It has been nine years since they have been in the States. The other teachers are here looking af ter the many things connected with the change from old to new.
