NEW CONTROL
OVER RIVERS
AND HARBORS
JUNEAU, Feb. 28.—An order just
issued by the war department creates
a separate rivers and harbors district
for Alaska and names Col. James G.
Steese as district engineer with Capt. ]
C. S. Ward as district disbursing of
ficer, according to telegraphic ad
vices received by Capt. Ward at Ju
neau. Juneau will be headquarters
for the new district, th<* order becom
ing effective on April 1, next.
“The creation of an Alaska rivers
and harbors district means that all
the improvements on rivers and har
bors in the territory will be handled
by officials in the territory who are
on the ground all the time and not
referred to the Seattle district as has
been the case for the past 11 or 12
years,” said Capt. Ward. “It means
also that any question pertaining to
navigation in Alaska waters, includ
ing navigable- inland waters, will be
in the jurisdiction of the Alaska dis
trict and hearings on such matters
will be held in Alaska. For instance,
the question as to whether or not
fish traps furnish a menace to navi
gation, which has been considered
in the past in hearings in Seattle,
should it arise in the future would be
handled by the district engineer in
charge of the Alaska district,” said
Capt. Ward.
Capt. Ward said as far as he >
knew there is at this time but three I
rivers and harbors projects in Alas-1
ka. The Nome harbor and break
water project is an active one which
is included in current estimates;
the Apoon mouth of the Yukon river
is inactive but carries certain esti
mates annually for maintenance; the
third one, Wrangell narrows, is in the
isceptive stage. A survey has been
made there by Col. Schulz, Seattle
district engineer who has submitted
a report containing recommendations
which are unknown herd. Any fu
ture work resulting from that repirt
will be in charge of Col. Steese.
“Alaska at one time and up until
1909 was a separate district, but
in that year was attached to the
Seattle district where it has re
mained until the present. On April
1, it again becomes a district and will
be in the Northern Pacific division
under the jurisdiction of Col. James
B. Cavanaugh.”
The appointment of Col. Steese as
district engineer and Capt. Ward as
distbursing officer for the district
does not alter their present status on
the Alaska road commission. Col.
Steese will remain as president and
Capt. Ward disbursing officer for the
commission.
ARRANGING DETAILS
OF BIG TIMBER PERMIT
Scott Calhoun of Seattle, attorney
for eastern investors connected with
the Gastineau pulp and paper pro
ject at Juneau, has the papers in his
officein connection with a two bil
lion feet permit to cut pulp timber j
in the Tongass forest reserve on Ad
miralty island.
There has been some controversy
between the forestry department and
the eastern pulp investors over the
terms of the contract. As soon as
these differences can be ironed out
the forestry department will adver
tise the timber for ninety days, and
it is expected the Gastineau com
pany will make a satisfactory bid.
Attorney Calhoun stated he had
been informed some weeks ago by
both Col. Jackling and B. L. Thane
that the financial end of the pulp and
paper operations had been arranged
and he understood the company is
to move part of the Gastineau mine
equipment to other properties, if
necessary, but he was not entirely
clear that the Gastineau company
would close mining operations unless
it was forced to do so by reason of
a demand for jiower to be used in
a more profitable pulp and paper in
dustry.

BELIEVED TWO
MORE MEN DEAD
FATED ISLAND
KETCHIKAN, Feb. 28.—Natives re-'
ported to customs officials here that
they had found the gas boat Vinland
a total wreck on the south shore of
Mary Island, near here. Apparently
the accident occurred about ten days
ago.
Nobody was aboard, but papers
found in the cabin indicate that the
boae, equipped for salmon trolling,
left Ballard, Wash., January 1 8and
Port Townsend four days later.
T. P. Paxton, of Seattle, owner of
the wrecked gas boat was not one of
themen aboard as was at first be
lieved.
Paxton came north on a passenger
steamer and is safe in Ketchikan.
Harry Loomis and Carl Erickson
manned the Vinland, which was
equipped for salmon trolling, and
both are thought to have perished.
Deputy Marshal Walter B. Sharpe
and a companion are making a
search of the island, which is the
same upon which Leslie Williams of
Ketchikan and Lighthouse Keeper
Herbert Scott lost their lives from
exposure about six weeks ago.
Search if the island so far has
failed to reveal any trace of the
missing men.
