Recent arrivals from the westward report that the big mountains in the vicinity of Cook inlet are smoking, but as yet no ashes have fallen. K. J. McChesney, who was hurt at Port Wells recently, is recovering at Valdez. His foot, that it was feared he would lose, is rapidly healing. It is announced that the big 300 stamp mill to be erected near Juneau by the Alaska Juneau Gold Mining Co., will be completed by October 15th. I Unless business men show more in terest in the organization, the Wrangell volunteer fire department threatens to disband. Wrangell needs another fire. j The Juneau town council has passed i an ordinance prohibiting street orators from holding forth in that town. Henceforth such characters will have to hire a hall. According to the report of Sumner S. Smith, mine inspector for Alaska, there have been twelve accidental deaths in the mines of Alaska during the past two years.

The merchants of Fairbanks estimate : that the cut in freight rates ou mer- j chandise aud machinery to be shipped in will mean a saving of ?200,000 this year to the people of that place aloue.

The fraternal aud social societies will participate iu | the midnight carnival. 1 A stamp mill has been set in opera- j tion on No. 17 above discovery on Fair- j banks creek. It is workiug on quartz : from the Teddy R. property on Moose j creek. There is work in sight to keep ! the mill going all summer.

O'Connor Wholesale and Retail Dealer in general Merchandise The Fidalgo Mining Co., in charge of Thomas Blakney, is now one of the shippers of copper ore, having joined the list last winter, when the first shipment was made after the installa tion of a tram and the construction of a wharf. At Fairbanks t he jury in the case of Stein vs. Aloom, after a deadlock last ing for twenty four hours, decided the case itifavor of the plaintiff by tossing a coin. The defendant has filed notice of appeal on the ground that the jury arrived at the verdict illegally. This is the third trial of this case, which grew out of the division of profits of a har ness deal. The farmers of the Tanana valley have formed themselves into an asso ciation. From information gathered from the various members it is believed that enough potatoes can be raised the coming year to supply the demand for the entire district. The merchants of the various towns will be asked to co operate with the ranchers, and to give preference to home grown spuds. Here is what Pinchotism is doing to Alaska: The British tramp steamer Rupert City, laden with Canadian coal, is at (Jnalaska unloading its cargo, which is for the use of the United States revenue cutter fleet. Within a few leagues of Unalaska are fine beds of native coal, but uuder the Pin.chot theory of conservation they are being preserved foi generations yet unborn. ? Seward Gateway. Al. Clark, one of the old timers of Dawson, Y. T., and at one time or an other located at almost all the import ant camps in Alaska, passed through Seattle a few years ago with about 80, 000 feet of moving picture films to be used in taking views iu sections of Alaska that have uever been visited by white men. Mr. Clark has been living iu the states the last nine years, mak ing his home in Sau Francisco. President Wilson has given assur auces to Senators Joues and Chamber lain that he will lend his support to the bill which bears the names of these two senators, for railroad coo struction in Alaska, and will urge his party leaders to the passage of this biil at the pending session. There ia one proviso which the president makes: his consent is conditioned that the consid- 1 eration of this particular measure shall not interfere with or endanger the ad ministration's legislative program of tariff revision aud currency reform. Seattle steamship companies have been notified that arrangements have beeu made with the war department and the uavy department whereby operators in charge of the army sta tions in Alaska and the radio operators in charge of Alaskan stations will ac cept as official business messages re garding aids to navigation from masters of steamships operating in Alaskau waters. These messages are to be ad dressed to the light house inspector, Ketchikan, Alaska. Steamship masters have been requested to use this means of communication freely in order that the light house service may be promptly informed as to any aids requiring at tention. P. W. Whelpley, the fox man repre senting New Brunswick capitalists, has purchased, for a substantial amount, three or four fox islands to the west from fox farmers who have long en gaged in this industry, says the Seward Gateway. Andre* Griswold, L. Beed and Samuel Appelgate, western Alaska j pioneers, have sold their holdings to Whelpley, who, it is said, will engage in fox faroiiug upon an extensive scale in behalf of the iuterests he represents. There i9 a reason for the coolness of j the climate for the past year, and the ; lateness of the present spring It is owing to the eruption of Mt. Katmai. The goose bone, the grouud hog and the musk rat houses have absolutely nothing to do with it. An eminent scientist says the big Alaska volcano whs the guilty party; aud a scientist who ha9 spent years in college 9inging "Good NightJLadies" aud shouting that rah, rah stuff, ought to know more about weather, especially night air, j than all the goose bouea in the ceme tery. ? Alaskan. The total sum of $076,550 has beeu produced by the Little Cliff mine since , the small three-stamp mill was started working on the claims in May, 1910, a little over three years ago. In a run of 30 hours $13,000 was produced. It was this little mine, the pioueer of them all, which started the Valdez camp as a producing section of Alaska. With a capital stock of 100,000 shares, but of which only one-fourth was needed to place the claims iu the dividend class, the stockholders in this company have received mauy times their original in vestment, and will receive many thou sands more, as present indications point to a large body of ore on the | property. ? Miner. A determined and well-sustaiued at tempt is to be made to introduce one I or two species of Alaska salmon ou the , New England coast. The present con dition of New England rivers precludes the possibility of re-establishing the .large native salmon therein; but there is a prospect of introducing small species of Alaska salmou which spawn near the sea aud would not be affected by obstructions and the greatly changed physical character of the head waters which for some year9 have prac tically prohibited natural spawning of the Atlantic salmon. The salmon that will be used are excellent food fish and will prove very acceptable substitutes for the native species. Ana now senator n.ey riiiimtuuumuo forth with a bill that will throw open the coal fields of Alaska to locatiou. And Senator LaPollette says the bill for the government' building of rail roads in Alaska will be passed at this session, with the support of President Wilson. If this thing keeps on eveiy man and woman in Alaska will want to be enrolled under the banner of dem* ocraoy. It really looks as though the deliverance of Alaska was near at band, thanks to the democratic party and the sincerity of their leaders. With coal legislation and railroad construction the problem will have been solved, and Alaska will soon blossom as the rose and her people become prosperous and contented.? Ohitina Leader.
