James L. Galen Returns
From That Country
Copper is There in Quantity to
Make an Empire of That Dis

Its Future Greatness.
"Copper will be king some day in
that great wilderness and maae of
mountains now commonly termed the
head of the White, Tanana and Cop
per rivers," said James I* Galen, who
arrived in Nome the other day front
the headwaters of the Tanana, where'
he spent the past summer. Mr. Oaten
can speak on the book, for he is from
Montana, where cotper Is the metal

his exploitation of the rich distrir.* -
from which he has just arrived.
Hr. Galen is fascinated with the
great mineral wealth that lays locked
In the heart of that region. He says
the one key to unlock this wealth and
make it possible for an empire of
riches to be born is transportal loti.
“Give ins a railroad, and I will re

The stories that come now and then
from that Eden-like tract down baker
creek way Impress listeners as deeply
as must those tales of marvelous nat
ural conditions described by Lewis nr
Clark, of their west, ages ago. A
stranger's powers of conception must
Le strained In visiting the valley of
the Tanana. If he comes on a stage
in December he is likeiy to experience
the bitterness of 70-below-zero atmos
Given that this stranger has made
the trip in and out last winter, and
that he returned yesterday on the Tan
ana, he would have bad to realise that
this place was the birthplace of trop
ical plants requiring climatic condi
tions as far temoved from 70 below
zero as Louisiana is from Athabasca.
William Casey, of the Hotel North
ern, brought a large plant of native
tobacco back with him from the Baker
hot springs. It is over four feet high
and in full bloom. The plant Is on
exhibition In front of the Hotel North
ern. and la the object of a great many
persons’ admiration.
‘‘Why, you can't conceive what a
marvel that steam-htated soil Is down
there," declared Casey, last night.
‘‘That tobacco is one of scores of the
same size. Many are far taller and
have greater foliage.
"Mr. Kaishner, who raised the
plants, tells me he is doing It at the
request of the government, to which
he will report upon the growth. He
raised the big patch from a few seeds
obtained from the department of ag*
i lculture.
“But summer squash, canteloupes
and such are things be does know
about, and he will startle Fairbanks
produce dealers in a week or so with
a shipment of Hubbard and Rocky
Ford varieties that will make them
sit up and look some curious.
Among t/iose Casey mentioned as
being at the springs now is George
Byrnes, the insurance man. He says
that Qeorge la taking three baths a
day, eats a wheelbarrow load and
lalks of getting thin. At the las:
weighing he was gaining but three
pounds a day.—Fairbanks Times.
Freight traffic on Cook inlet near
Seward, this season has exceeded all
precedent. Captain Blodgett says that
the three boats of the mos'iuito flee'
on the Inlet liaves cariled more Hum
2,900 tons from Seldovia to the upper
ports since navigation opened early In
April. This Included the supplies fur
the Alaska Commercial Company's
stores. Palmer and Hemlng at Knlk,
Tyooaok. Susitna station and other
supply points. Several hundred tons
were taken up for the Crow Creek
Mining Company, 8 \V. Wible and
James Girdwood for their hydraulic
operations on Tumagain Arm.
Captain Blodgett believes that tbe
entrance of the railroad to t'ie region
along the arms of the inlet and the
Susitna valley, will greatly Increase
the steamer traffic on the inlet and
that the number of vessels engaged
will soon be doubled and trebled.
That the railroad will reach some
points now accessible only by boat he
concedes, but the influx of population
which will follow the building of the
railroad will enormously increase th*
freight traffic to the Interior, and much
of it can be handled more cheaply and
advantageously by the Inlet and rive:
boats than by the railroad.
Hereafter freight can be transferred
at Seldovia much more easily than In
the past, because of the erection of
Herbert’s wharf. This is nearly com
plete, and small steamers can land be
side it now. It will be 1,000 feet long
from the shore, and will have a T at
the outer end, where ocean steamers
can dock. It has a warehouse 100 feet
long, and Cuplalu Blodgett sqys It Is
a first-class dock in every respect.
Heretofore freight from ocean steami
era has been lightered to the beach.
An interesting feature of this dock
is that the piles have been driven by
Siwash power. About fifteen natives
puli up the hammer by means of a long
rope. They do not bring results quite
as fast as a steam pile driver, but the
hammer drops with the same force and
