With the. cessation of hostilities be tween the principal belligerents in tin : great, war some of tin.* quicksilver pro ducers were decidedly pessimistic as re | gards the future of tin? iudustrv. They expected an immediate influx of foreign quicksilver and a fall in prices approx-j innately to ihe level of those thtt pre-: vailed early in 1914. The present con ditions, however, appear to indicate that at least, some of the producers were unduly apprehensive of immediate disaster._ [t is now 38 days since the winter m iil service started over the far-famed Cordova-Fairbanks-Y ukon-River- Ruby Opliir- tditarod- Flat - sureshot - never mis.s- fire - continued-in-our-next route, and no through mail as yet. There’s [ no mistaking the fact that that is the great get-there plan for prompt deliv ery. If 500 miles is a good thing to add to a dugteam mail route, why not put on about a thousand miles more and give the mail a little journey to Kotzebue Sound via the Koyukuk coun try? This suggestion (which is exceed ; ugly silly) is just as reasonable as the I present frame-up.
