I ROAD PASS REGION OF
OF ALASKA Broad Pass region of Alas ch has long been considered >le souive of mineral wealth :en on additional interest he announcement of the hosen for the Government connecting the Pacific dth the interior of Alaska, nticipation of the probable for information about this the United States Geological began the work of map s topography and geology i, and now presents the re F the work in Bulletin 608, H. Moffit, “The Broad Pass Alaska.” 1 Pass is the western part dde glacial valley which Is d by steep, straight moun alls and which lies parallel great east-west range on •th and connects the upper of Chulitna and Susitna Nenana river, a tributary Tanana, occupies the east •t of the region. The valley ck River, which crosses Pass just above the narrow of the Nenana, before that passes through the Alaska privides the route by which ilroad will cross from the ■Chulitna drainage basin to ' the Tanana. The upper f streams tributary to Chul ;d Jack rivers overlap each within Broad Pass, there be appreciable divide between, the grades from the head Chulitna to the head of the are gentle and there is no lion. North and south of Pass are high mountains, m the north are part of the range from which, only 70 o the west, rise Mount Mc and, near by on the east, •al Mountain and Mount There is a fair growth of in the larger valleys but f the country is above t.im le. This region has long ■een a favorite hunting ground for he Indians of the Susitna Valley. The geologic conditions in the region appear to be favorable to mineralization, but no valuable ore bodies have yet been discovered. The most favorable reports come fromthe district just west of Broad Pass, near the head of Chulitna River, where prospecting has been carried on for several years. Val Idez Creek, an important gold plac I er district, lies about 30 miles east of the pass. Along some of the streams between Broad Pass and ^ aldez Creek there are prospects of placer gold, which, however, has not been found in commercial quantity. Copper prospects, too, have been discovered in several parts of the region, and at one place, Coal Creek, there is a small area of coal. The railroad, which will probably soon reach this region, will aid grately in its development. The wealth of the Broad Pass region appears to be mineral rather than agricultural, and it can be profit ably exploited only by a greater population and through bette means of transportation. EXPEDITION AND RELIEF IMPRISONED IN ICE NEW YORK, Dec. 10—Word reached the American Museum of Natural History here today that both the Crockerland expedition and a relief party sent to its aid will spend the winter icebound in the Arctic. Letters received from Donlad B. McMillan, leader of the Crockerland expedition, by way of Copenhagen, said that the men of his party were preparing to spend the winter in the Arctic and to con tinue explorations in the spring. Dr. Edmund O. Hovey, who is lead ing the relief party, is on the steamer George B. Cluett and re ports his ship frozen in at North Star bay, 120 miles nor th of Etah, jhe base of the McMillan expedition. There is no indication that the two parties have succeeded in estab lishing communication with each other. _ COMMUNICATION Editor of the Progressive, Ketchikan, Alaska. Sir:—1 In your issue of Wecember 1st we (here at Loring,) noticed a let ted from Marshal Bishop of Juneau to Mr. Carlson, in regard to the re ward for the arrest of Krause. Will you kindly answer (in the next Progressive) the following ques tions? What authority did Mr. Carlson have to arrest Krause ? If Mr. Carlson was not an officer would he not have layed himself liable to prosecution for impersonating an officer if he had attempted to Itrrest Krause ? Every one of us here imagine that Mr. Carlson is entitled to at least a portion of the reward. Is Mr. Bishoy using the mail in at tempting to defraud and send threatening letters? Loring, Dec. 3, 1915. With much respect A FISHERMAN Note:—The above questions were clearly set forth in the issue of the Progresive of the date in the letter mentioned.

HOW ANIMALS ACT UNDER FIRE Animals on European firing lines have an eventful existence says an English writer. “Bombardments affect different animals in differ ent ways. Dogs, as a rule, show great distress when shells burst near them, and howl piteously. On the other hand, they have been known to dash along the front of a trench during infantry fire, barking and apparently enjoying the noise. “Cats, judging by the few in stances related to me, do not care whether thew are shelled or ‘ma chined’ as long as they have a dry (orner and food when they are hungry. There have been instances of lost dogs and cats venturing Into the British trenches during an engage ment. Some of them lived in lot tages near the firing line—long since destroyed—and clung to the lemnants uf their homes; others strayed a long distance. A nonde script dog with an Arm.entieres ad dress on his collar, turned up near Wytschaete early one morning, spent the day with a Territorial battalion, disappeared at dusk, and was never seen again. “A West Country ” Yeomanry contingent was adopted in the thick of a fight near Fortuin in May by a black cat, which surviv ed a bombardment which killed many men, and has since lived sumptuously in billets with an identification disk around its neck. “Regimental mascots appear, to have the best time, for they stay in billets, live on the fat of the land, anr are made much of by the local inhabitants. The pampered terrier of a certain famous regiment of foot guards sat on the top of a transport wagon at the tail of the battalion and barked at all the civilian dogs he passed.” 4 See NEWMAN > for Christmas Cards and Price Tickets dUiJUUiJi AaaA *aaA ^ ^ AAA.
