ordered by the commission, which has
not been delivered, anil if the deliv
eries are not made before the dost
of navigation at Anchorage, he said
it would tie up all construction v.oWc
until spring, and probably longer, at
that end of the line.

j WAGON ROADS FOR
M. I). Snodgrass, who has spent
some time past in the Matanuska dis
trict, is very favorably impressed
with its agricultural possibilities.
Last year, he states, wheat, oats, and
barley were matured there and yield
ed very favorably, while potatoes and
i the ordinary garden products gave ex
* cellent returns despite the unfavor
able season. This year, with normal
' conditions, he expects to see a great1
gain in the output of that section and |
at the greatly enhanced prices for ail J
farm products the farmers of that
section will do well.
One of the most pressing needs of
that section, Mr. Snodgrass states, is
wagon roads as feeders to the rail
road. Under present conditions he
says, the agriculturists are experienc
ing the greatest difficulty in getting
their produce to market, and in team
ing their supplies and provisions to
their homesteads from the railroads.
An effort will be made to have the ter
ritorial road overseer for this divi
sion look into the matter with a view
to securing as much work as possible
on the roads of that section.
This month Snodgrass will go to
Fairbanks to relieve J. VV. Neal, sup
erintendent of the station there, who,
will leave the service and will go to
California, where he has a large ranch;
of his own that he will devote himself
to in the future.
