Mass Meeting at Nenana
Expresses Disapproval of
Engineering Commission
Long - smoldering resent menu
against the Alaskan engineering
commission, because of an apparent
lack of interest in the development
of Interior Alaska, was whipped into
flame by the receipt of information
from Anchorage indicating a further
curtailment of construction activities
in this division, says the Nenana
News. The public feeling found
expression at a mass meeting held
at the firehall at which it was de
cided to take immediate steps to
bring about a more friendly and
interested attitude toward Alaska
on the part of those in charge of
the government enterprise, or upon
the part of those who will succeed
them shortly if the plans of the
meeting are crowned with success.
It was the sense of the meeting,
expressed in no uncertain manner,
that both Chairman Mears and En
gineer in Charge Browne be re
moved from their positions without
delay and that men be appointed
to succeed them who will take a
real interest in Alaska. The re
quest was in the form of a motion
which carried enthusiastically and
the grounds for removal are alleged
incompetence, together with disre
gard for the purpose for which tha.
railroad was originally intended to
be constructed.
Commissioner McDonald, who was
delegated by the Nenana Commercial
Club some time ago to meet Secre
tary Payne on the occasion of that
official’s visit to the Alaska coast,
but who was unable to do so be
cause of the secretary’s unexpected
early departure from Anchorage,
read to the meeting a length letter
which he had sent to the secretary,
explaining the purpose of the mis
sion on which he had been sent
from Nenana. The letter presents
fully the situation in Interior Alas
ka and should have proved very
helpful in informing the secretary
regarding local conditions.
After numerous complains had
been aired, and conditions discussed
at considerable length, it was for
mally decided to name a committee
to communicate with Secretary
Payne for the purpose of ^curing
relief which is deemed of vital im
portance to the future of Interior
Alaska and to the success of the
government railroad after it is com
pleted. The committee named is
composed of Commissioner R. S. Mc
Donald, Robert Joseph Diven, Martin
Nash, Dr. J. R. Bowen, Joe Fischer
and Herhan Anderson. This com
mittee met this afternoon but was
not ready, at the time of going to
press, to give out anything for 1
publication.
Notwithstanding the tact, that the
meeting was arranged hurriedly and ;
without general notice to the public,
there were about forty in attend
ance, representative of the town and
the district in general. Mayor .Toe
O Connor acted as chairman.
The direct cause of the meeting
was the receipt of instructions from
Anchorage to close the local at .mut
ing office and to transfer all of the
work to the headquarters of the
southern division. The instrre!ions '
were received by Chief Accountant
McIntosh, his orders being to close
bis department on Saturday night.
There is also some talk of trans
ferring the accounting force of the
stores department to Healy, but!
General Storekeeper R. S. Donald
son informed the News last night
that definite action had not been
taken up to that time and probably
no change would be made, if at all,
until the return of Engineer in
Charge Browne. There has been
no curtailment in store forces and
none is contemplated immediately.
It is claimed that a tidal wave that
did a lot of damage on the Japan
ese coast was noticed on the west
coast of Prince of Wales island.
The waves were of unusual size.

PERMIT BIRCH
CUTTING FROM
PUBLIC LANDS
FAIRBANKS, Nov. 27— In an of
ficial notification from the general
land office, timber cruiser and spe
cial agent, H, K. Carlisle, whose
headquarters are in the local land
office, received information to the
effect that the timber regulations
have been modified to permit of the
cutting of birch from the public
lands of Alaska, for export and sale.
There is a great scarcity of hard
woods in the United States at the
present time, for the manufacture of
furniture, and dealers are looking to
Alaska, for a supply of birch wood.
Already three big lumber concerns
in the United States have made ap
plications for the cutting of birch,
in the Cooks inlet country, and pre
parations are in progress, in that re
gion, for lumbering on a large scale.
It is believed that several more ap
plications for birch for export pur
poses will be filed in the near future
and the development of this new in
dustry in the Tanana valley, where
birch in quantity can be found, may
be counted among the possibilities.
The act of congress approved June
5th (Public No. 24G, 66th congress)
making appropriation for sundry civil
expenses of the government, con
tained a provision that hereafter
birch timber may be exported from
Alaska.
Reports made from time to time to
the department of the interior indi
cate that there is considerable white
birch, which is a hardwood suitable
for the manufacture of furniture,
flooring and finishings, on some of
the public lands along and near the
government railroad in the Susitna
valley and also in the Matanuska
and Tanana valleys, and small
valleys along the coast.
The market in Alaska for this
class of timber for manufacturing
purposes has been extremely limited
and such use as it has been put to
has chiefly been for fuel.
The provision authorizing its ex
portation was enacted with a view
to encouraging for a more appro
priate and beneficial purpose.
Sales of birch timber suitable for
manufacturing purposes are author
ized by the general land office in
quantity that it will be capable of
producing during the period covered
by the contract of sale.
When a ten years’ supply is sold |
the period within which the same
must be cut (10 years) will begin to
run from the time the contract of
sale is executed if the manufacturing
plant has been built, or from the
time the mill has been constructed
and ready to begin operations, if it
is to l,o built, hut in no case will
more than a two years' deduction
lie allowed fur eons ruction, and each
contract shall contain a provision
that all rights acquired thereunder
shall be forfeited if operations have
not .been commenced within three
years from tlio date of execution o!
the contract, unless upon satisfactory ,
showing, the secretary of the in
terior shall, in his discretion, excuse
the delay.
Intending applicants should file
their applications in duplicate with
the receiver of the U. S. land office
for the district wherein the lands
to he cut over are situated.
The rules for the enforcement of
the new provision are not applicable
to national forests, Indian and Eski
mo claims, prior homesteads or min
ing claims and lands embraced in
reservations and withdrawals by
executive order.
