By Cable to the Daily Cateway Washington, I), l'.. Nov. I The j comptroller of the currency has decided j to allow more teaehers and a larger fund for the support of Alaska schools than ia*t year. This decision i* based on the returns of otimated prosnective attendance from the different dU t riels. A letter was received recent It from (iuv. Brady h\ !•'. <1. Hale of the local j school lwiard. stating that under the ; ruling of the comptroller Seward, as an unincorporated town, would be entitled i to only one teacher and a live months’ school at government expense. An at tempt ha* been made to induce the comptroller to change his ruling hut whether the decision announced in the j telegraph new* today is due to such ! reversal, is only guesswork. Last winter Seward paid more than *5.000 to the government in license and j received $500 for the support of its schools. * Among the Portland’s freight was j *i.\ big hoh*leds. consigned to D. t '. I Brownell. The sleds were a special order for Contractor Harty, who has a j contract near the tunnels. The newest stampede in the interior | is to the Novakak t. It is a river heading up toward the Kuskokwim and flowing into the Yukon eighty-five miles | below the Xanana. NO FROST VET ON COOK INLET Waters Absolutely free from Ice and Railroad Graders Work in Soft Ground. “No frost yet at the head of Turn-j [ again Arm," is the report brought! j down tins week by \\. H. Poland,! general manager and chief engineer of the Alaska Central. When he left! there was not a film of ice on the waters of < 'ook Inlet. < »n the comparatively level stretch hetween mill’s .*»•» and • *•» of the line rraders are working in soft ground. Although the nights are chilly the 'thermometer has rarely touched the frost line and has not yet heen low I enough to fre-’/e the ground. Mecause of this the graders have heen kept persistently at dirt work. There is , plenty of rock work but it is being saved up for the cold weather. This side of the tunnels work is pro ! grossing well. The end ot the track is now on mile 44, and with the com pletion of several rock obstructions will lie laid almost, to the lirst tunnel, on mile lit. It is expected that this : will he done by the middle of next mont h. The tunnel camp is established on mile p>. The storehouse and bunk liouse are built and everything is in readiness for the winter’s session. A good roadway was linishe.i >me time ago. Men arc engaged now in elear . ing away rock ad .10 :it to both portals 1 of the tunnel, preparatory to boring, which will begin in a few wi cks. Kx • cept a few stretches of rock within a • mile of the tunnel the i*:ul will be complete before tie* end ot tie* year. : A majority of tie men employed all ; winter will hi* on the ten miles this side of Turnagain Arm, tie* head of I which is at flu* end of mile ,;.i. Mr. Poland was accompanied on h’s 1 trip to tin* Inlet, by c. P. 1*rtutcis, I treasurer of the railroad company, and I Pert Holland of the engineering corps. ! They went on the north side of the : north side of the Arm to a point as far as Sunrise and crossed over to that place. Men who came in yesterday from the j Inlet report that it had been raining J there a little for a day or two before. This is the lirst rain for several weeks along Turnagain Arm. The weather had been not only dry, hut warm. WILL RECEIVE i IMPORTS HERE Seward now has a deputy inspector of customs in the person of W. M. Sauers, of the Seward Commercial | C ompany. Mr. Sauers was sworn in i Thursday by Deputy Inspector Edward L. Spiers of Valdez, to whom he will ! report. Mr. Spiers came over on tin* Portland and returned on the same steamer. Hereafter imports can be landed at Seward and Mr. Sauers will collect I the duty. This is the first step toward making Seward a suh-port, from which vessels can clear. It has already been promised that Seward shall he a suh port next year some time. Some people might think that the promise could he quickly fulfilled, in asmuch as it requires only an order from the secretary of the treasury, but persons who entertain such a strange hallucination do not know how many miles of red tape span the distance be tween a promise and a fulfillment 'through one of the national depart ments. Several dozen minor officials have to earn their salaries by making i reports and recommendations before ! the labyrinth of red tape which hinds Seward to Valdez can be untangled. It would he contrary to all adminis trative rules to cut the tape as Alex ; underdid the (iordian knot. Consequently for some months longer steamers loaded with men and freight f» r Seward will have to go into Valdez to get permission to come here. The annual howl of a car shortage is , going up all over the country.
