TP Cpipanp tp Hpifprt pn § II the
Routes to New Camp and Pos
sible Future of Diggings.
Ross J. Kenney, who was chief
inspector for the road commis
sion on the Valdez dike, is now at
’McCarthy, according to word re
ceived by the commission, en
route to the Chisana to investi
gate the many routes into the new
diggings, both winter and sum
mer, the cost of construction of
roads and trails into the camp,
the possible future of tfie camp
as indicated by its present devel
opment and make to the officers
of the commission a full and de
tailed report.
Mr. Kenney left here on the
Alameda and will spend the bal
ance of the season securing the
necessary data and will, as far as
possible, make a first hand in
spection of all the* routes, both
Canadian and American, leading
to the new camp.
The commission is most con
cerned about a winter route and
Mr. Kenney has received special
instructions to make a careful
study of the country with the ob
ject of constructing the winter
trail.
The road commission had plan
ned to construct a bridge across
the. Nizina river last winter, but
the tie-up on the Cordova road
made its construction impossi
ble, as the bridge timbers were
dtdayed at Cordova until the sea
son was so far gone as to make
it impracticable for the transpor
tation of the material from Mc
Carthy to the city' selected by the
engineer officer of the commis
sion. |
The Nizina will be spanned this
winter as the material is Mow at
McCarthy and even should the
line be tied up again, as is ex
pected, yet the bridge will he
built.
The Cordova merchants are
clamoring for I lie construe! ion of
'a road from McCarthy over the
Seolai pass to the White river,
while the Chitina merchants and
prospectors assert that the Cul
kana route is I he only way In
lake any c|iianlity of supplies in
to the Chisana, because of the
favorid grades, tine road going
up the Copper to iIs head and
then dropping across a small di
vide into I he Tunana river and up
tlial stream to the Chisana. The
Culkana route has the added ad
vantage of being in timber all the
way and the prospector who de
sires to go inlo I he new diggings
cheap can save much money by
starling from Valdez over I he
governmeiil road to the Culkana
and then follow the Chitina route.
The cost of transportation <>f
horses, feed and outfits from Cor
dova lo Chitina can he saved by
starting from Valdez, and il is
generally believed that I be Val
dez-Culkana route will be the
most generally used next winter.
It Pays to Advertise.
The one tiling taught by tile
primary elect ions so far is that
it i» I he candidate who advertises
who gels the nominal ion. From
all over the country where the
primary system has been adopt
ed, from candidates of high and
low degree of both parlies comes
Ihe verdict—it pays to advertise.

Candidate who advertises is the
man who has won out everywhere
thra year.
Senator Jonathan Bourne,
father of the primary, was one of
those who did not believe in ad
vertising. Let my good deeds ad
vertise me, was his thought. He
had his name put on the ticket,
and then let nature take its
course. The other fellow adver
tised in the newspapers and Jon
athan will stay at home for six
more years.
In the primary election for
governor of Florida, E. M. Sem
ple declared he did not believe in
advertising. The other candidate
did. Occasionally Semple got a
vote, but he was snowed under.

Say the Camp Is Small
at Best.
Seattle, Aug. 35.— Many disap
pointed stampeders are returned
to this city from the Shushanna
country and they claim that the
camp is small and that the stor

wore not justified by the facts.
Many more are expected to re

VALUABLE DOG KILLED
BY A DYIHG BEAR
Ketchikan, July 31—Falling
out of a huge fir tree from a
-height of fifty feet when shot by
hunters yesterday, a black bear,
weighing 400 pounds, struck
squarely on a hound valued at
$500, killing the animal instant
ly. The incident was the result
of an hour’s chase, in which sev
eral of the townspeople, bent on
avenging (lie slaughter of the on
ly two cows in town, look part.
Warned by the baying hounds
that lie was in danger, bruin
took refuge in a fir tree. A few
‘minutes later a parly of six
hunters emptied their rifles into
the tree top.
Pierced by several bullets the
animal released its hold and
crashed through the branches to
the. ground. One of the hounds,
eager to sieze I he bear, rushed
in, but misjudged the distance
find received the full imparl of
the animal’s weight.
