COMMISSIONER AT TOKOTNA IS OUT FOR ROADS “ Writes Strong Letter in Support of District Petition — in support of the petition for schools, communication and roads for the Tokotna and Ophir districts, which was published in the Gateway of yesterday, the following letter has been reecived from U. S. Commission er W. F. Gredn, M. D., and D. D. S., for Mt. McKinley precinct, who re sides at Tokotna. •‘The Kuskokwim, Mt. McKinley, lnnoko, lditarod, and the Ruby Re cording precincts have united in our efforts to get some recognition from the proper departments in the way of increased mail service and in suitable and appropriate road build* ng for which the government has never spent one-cent or turned a shoveful of dirt. “We need a road from the head of navigation here on the Kuskokvrim river to the Innoko and the points made in the petition along these lines are all valid and the plain truth. W'e need connection with Anchorage, Seward and the railroad by a wagon road that is navigable for horses and men in the summer time so we can get in touch with the coast and the states without going away up north ; to Nome. “Wre have a large copper ledge on the west fork of the Nixen fork of the Tokotna river. We have Tung sten also. We have the richest placer i ground on Candle creek per square foot of bed rock that has ever been uncovered in Alaska—bar none. We have large deposits of coal on the Big river which you will not find on the maps. One vein shows up for over 20 feet in thickness. But with all this and more too we are fenced off by lack,of transportation and communi cation. These we must have and pro pose to have them. “All of which (and more if you wish it) is respectfully submitted for your consideration and help with the 1 powers that be. Yours truly, ”W. F.
