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.
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. _
Editor of the Progressive,
Ketchikan, Alaska.
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
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
Note:—The above questions were
clearly set forth in the issue of
the Progresive of the date in the
letter mentioned. We commented
editorially on the action of the
Marshal and covered every point
asked in the above letter.—Ed.

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
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.”
