Indications point to the year 1921
being the greatest year for develop
ment along all lines in Alaska that
the territory has ever experienced.
Eastern papers, papers that are read
by millions of people, papers that
guide public thought and determine
the policies of the nation, are tak
ing Alaska seriously at last. Not
only are they taking the territory
seriously, but they are, without ex
ception, advocating a wider free
dom for the people here, a release
from a bureaucratic government and
from a tangle of departments that
duplicate each others’ work when
they are not absolutely antagonistic.
The nation is being taught to
realize that Alaska is an asset of
untold permanent value instead of
a flimsy treasure box to be looted
as quickly as possible and then de
serted. The United States is begin
ning to learn that the wealth of
the territory will steadily increase
if its natural resources are properly
developed and fostered.
It is believed a big concentrating
proposition has been located 18 miles
down Portland canal from Hyder on
the Alaska side. The property, as
described by Emil Davis, consists of
eight claims which are crossed by an
immense vein at least 200 feet in
width, and samples brought to camp
show a considerable amount of
molybdenite and give encouraging
assay returns in gold and silver. The
big lead lies only one and one-half
miles distant from tidewater, and all
physical features are favorable to
its economical development. The
property is owned by Emil Davis and
J. W. Marr.
Interest is centering more and
more on the Alaska side of the
Salmon river on account of new dis
coveries and good results obtained
from the development of older prop
erties. On Fish creek it is now
conceded that there is more than an
even chance that at least three pro
perties will become shippers. These
are the Titan group, owned by S. P.
and Jack Fitzgerald and L. .lessen,
upon which diamond drilling is now
proceedings, the Fish Creek Mining
Company’s property, a Seattle cor
poration registered in Alaska, of
which W. R. Tonkin is president and
manager, and the Lucky Boy group
owned by S. Q. Benson and asso
ciates.
At Seven-mile, Dan and Andy
Lindeborg have been developing a
property, and to date have driven
more than 100 feet on a lead which
is said to give values around $200
per ton. This is right on the wagon
road.
The New Alaska has taken a new
lease of life and it is stated on
authority that development will be
carried on all winter. The property
is at Eleven-mile and is crossed by
a wagon road.
Numerous locations have been
made Ibis season on Texas creek
and several outfits have worked all
summer.
The government will complete the
bridge this fall across Salmon river
at the mouth of Texas, which will
give access to these properties and
also provide a much better route to

claims on the B. C. side than that |
now followed. Such properties as!
the Forty-Nine, Hercules and claims j
on the west side of Salmon glacier
will be especially benefitted.
A series of several snow sheds
have recently been completed at the
Alaska Juneau mine to protect the
track used for tramming waste rock
from the mill to the channel. The
sheds are built where the track
is exposed and apt to become
blocked with snow during heavy
snow falls. With these sheds con
structed the management hopes to be
able to tram rock all the year
around.
Winter mining activity is expected
in the Kantishna district. A hy
draulic outfit is being installed by
Billy Taylor and H. Van Orsdel for
extensive use next season. Dr. Suth
erland. Jack Howell and Carl Sel
borg of Fairbanks, are installing an
other hydraulic plant in the Kan
tishna district. Thomas Aitkin is
continuing operations in the Kantish
na on his galena mine. Much of the
ore taken from the mine during the
summer could not be transported on
account, of low water, but Aitkin an
nounces that the work will continue
to be operated all winter.
W. A. Muloche, engineer for the
Algonican Development Company, en
gaged in developing a mine on the
Bear river in the Hyder district,
and up until last fall in work on
the Jualin mines in Berners bay
district, was in Juneau last week.
He has been representing the com
pany in the Hyder district this
summer. Several years ago he was j
stationed at Jualin as an assayer.
Significance is attached to his visit
on account of the statement made
during the summer by Jean Vano
phem, president of the company, that
work would be resumed this winter
and that the development program
would be carried out until the mine
is on a producing basis.
Roy Clothier, with a small force of
men, has been developing the pro
perty of the Indian Mines Ltd., on
Salmon river with gratifying results.
A new vein of high grade ore, free
from zinc, has been opened up. Mr.
Clothier’ is highly pleased with the
results so inexpensively obtained.
This company owns four claims on
the west side of Cascade creek, op
posite the Bush claims, on the south
end of Missouri ridge, between the
Salmon river glacier and Cascade
creek. They are at an elevation of
about 2.400 feet and fourteen miles
from tide-water at Stewart. No work
has been done on the property since
1913.
FRANCE GIVES STATUE
AMBASSADOR WALLACE

PARIS, Nov. 3 (by Associated!
Press.)—A miniature statue repre-1
seuting the French soldier has been I
presented to Ambassador Wallace by |
a committee of the friends of the!
polytechnic school of Paris. The ■
presentation took place in the Ameri
can embassy and the purpose of
the gift was to express to the am
bassador and to America the school’s j
appreciation for American aid.
The statue is that of a French I
soldier with a banner uplifted to
ward the sky and is entitled “For
Country, for Science, for Glory.” The
original of the statue is at West
Point. It was given to the United
States military academy by a com
mittee of the polytechnic school
which visited America last spring
and is by the French sculptor,
Theunissen.
