J. J.Tynan, General
Manager of th'e>
Union Iron Works
Local Lieutenants Go East to
Conclude Negotiations to
Sell Hunters Point
A* exclusively predicted by The Call
early this month, John A. McGregor,
president of the Union Iron works, and
J. J. Tynan, general manager of the
works, have gone east for an important
conference with Charles M. .Schwab
of the Bethlehem Iron works, the own
er of the local plant.
This conference has bearing upon the
impending sale to the United States
government of the Hunters point dry
dock and shipbuilding plant, which is
a part of the Union Iron works. The
character of the transaction by which
this plant is to be converted into a
great naval dockyard has been fully de
scribed In The Call and the establish
ment of such a naval base will bring
millions of dollars and thousands of
new residents to San Francisco. ,'.'-•
Another matter upon which Schwab
wishes to confer with his lieutenants is
said to be the,acquirement by the com
pany of another large piece of land not
far from Hunters point. Schwab is said
to have long had his eyes upon that
section, which Is peculiarly well suited
for the establishment of a great Indus
trial plant by reason of Its ample water
frontage and accessibility by rail.

Alaska Development Held Back,
He Says, by Greed and
Political Ambition
NEW YORK, July 22. — Theodore
Roosevelt has an article on the devel
opment of Alaska in today's issue of
the Outlook. He declares two factors
to be responsible for retarding progress
in this direction; "great capitalists who
wish to develop Alaska by , making
enormous fortunes. for themselves out
side of and In defiance of the law," and
the congressmen, who, "under pretense
of hostility to the corporations, decline
to permit the passage of - legislation
which , will enable them to do their
work honestly and to develop the coal
fields with a fair profit to ' themselves,
while doing justice to others."
Referring'specifically; to the Con
troller bay case, Roosevelt says: ;.
In this connection I : wish also to
call attention to the essential fact
as ■ regards the Controller bay sit
uation. •Controller bay, under
actual conditions, . offers the only
chance, or at any rate, very much
5 the r best chance . for a ; free outlet
from the great Bering river coal
fields. It was the comparative duty
of the government service to .keep
this outlet free and not to dispose
Of it to any Individual or individ
The government should have held
this land in perpetuity, permitting
its use by any individual or cor
poration " only under conditions
that would subserve the general
public interest. Unfortunately, the
interior department last October
eliminated from the government re
serve not only the 320 acres, the
elimination of /Which Was mis
takenly recommended by the agri
cultural department, but 12,800
Whether there was or was not
impropriety in the way in which
the elimination was brought about
or whether or not there was im
propriety in the action which re
sulted in the instant filing of
claims by Ryan and others does not
go to the root of the matter. The
root of the matter is that no such
elimination should have | been made"
by the interior department. , The
public interest demanded that this
land should be kept under public
control and that to prevent monop
oly Its use should be permitted only
under such conditions as the public
need required.
Remember always that such ac-
tlon would not have hindered devel-
opment; it would have favored de
velopment, for It would have en
abled any honest corporations.to
come In and do its part In develop
ing the country without fear of be
ing crowded out by some other cor
poration* which; - through unwise
government action, might obtain a
monopolistic right.
It is absolutely essential to the
proper development of our water
ways. within the United States and
it is.essential to the proper devel
opment of. the Alaska coal fields.
