When Secretary of State Sewnrd, in 1807, bought Alaskn from Russia for about 87,000,000, tbe transaction was genorally rognrded with diafavor in the United Matea. It was consutereu a tool- iali wasto of Anierican monej-, and the only excuse or explnnation tlien oflered was that the payment of tlns nmount tor thnt trozen region was u moue ot coin pcnsation to Ituala for friendliness mun ifested nnd seivices rendered to the United States during the civil war. The natlve naine Alaskn meant "great land," it wns said, nnd the land was without doubt inipressively great in areu; but no one nttached any valuo to that halt inillion square nnles of sup tosed biirii'tineH-t and miow nnd ice, presumably uninbabitnble b civilized men nnd far removed from civilized lands. lt had been only n btirden to Hussia, nnd the Czar nnd hla nicn of htnte wero glad to be rid of it. The seals and fisheries hnd been n t-ource of some rovenue, but not enough to defray the cost of adininistration. Yet forty years later, in 1900, a small fraction of thnt "great land'' hnd produced in gold the suin of S103,;i48,700. more than four tcen timcs tbe nmount of the purchascd money. Within tho last ten years Sewnrd PenliiKiila alone hns produced over $37,000,000, about 7,500.000 of which is credited to the year 1000 more thnn enough to pay the bill for the Territory. At firet all of the gold miniug was dono in the gravels of the creeks, but during recent years the pan nnd tbe sluice box of the nlacer miner have in some placos given way to the ore mill of the lode miner. who has kept pace with the geologist in his search for the original aources of the golden sands and nuggets of the placers. The search atill continues, as may be learned from the United States Geological Survey's report on tiie nrogress of investigations of the mineral recources of Alaskn in 1900, just nubhsheu. Thia volume. whicJi may oe obtained on application to the Director of the Survey at Washington, D. C, contains a general nccount of the pro- gress of surveys and the conditions of the niining industry, by A. H. Brooka, geologist in charge of mineral mvesti- eatious in Alaska, and a number of de tailed reports on various portions of the Territory by other memwrs ot tne lorce, Investiirations were made in south' eastern Alaska, in the Yakutat-Alsek region. about Controller Bay and Cook InTet, on Seard Peninaula, and in the Yukon dlstrict. These investigations did not relate solely to gold, but com prised examinationsof deposits of conper, tin, and other metals, ns well as beus of coal. seepages of petroleura, avatlable 8upplies of building stone and gypsum, and water resources for placer mining. Less than one-fourth or the area ot the Territory has been mapped and less than ono-8ixth has been surveyed geo logically. Itisworthy of note that al though nearly half a million dollars has been spent on Alaskan Burveys and in vestigations, this it less than one-half of one per cent of the value of the gold output during the period covered by the surveys. Trnnsportation probiems are Btui in tbe forefront throughout Alaaka. Steamboat service, both on the rivers and on the sea and its mlets, is being rapidly improved, but except on a few short railwaya overland trnnsportation lastlll very pnmittve. lne Alaaknn Road Commission is doing much to help the niining interests in various partsofthe Territory by highway and trail conatruction. Year by year the demand for railway connection of the inland region with open water becomes more imperntive, nnd until such roads are built the interior of the Territory can be but Blightly developed.
