An Iowa Syndicate Proposes to Bull! It
Via Copper River.
IS ASKED FOR
Company is Capitalized at Tbirty Mil
lions and Asks the- L'nitcd States
to Advance to It ,i.ooo for Each
Mile of Railroad Built, Construe
tion to be L'ndcr Direct Charge of
Secretary of the Interior.
Sw York, Jan. 30. A dispatch to
the Herald says :
Several Iowa men have asked congress
to grant a subsidy of $16,000 a mile for a
railway and telegraph line to the Klon
dike. Representative Curtis, of Iowa, In
trodaced a bill in the house Saturday
to carry out the wishes of the syndicate.
This syndicate has organized the Cup
per River & Yukon Hail road Company,
and they ask congress to grant them
the right to incorporate for fifty years,
to give them right of way for the rail
road and telegraph line Irora Yaldes
inlet, Alaska, over this route east and
northeast through the pass and along
the mountains, north and east to the
Copper River bottoms and thence up the
west bank of the river to tho Slahana
river and Matasta lake; thence through
Matasta pass and east to the little Tokio
river and thence down the left branch
and np the right and thence southwest to
and up Copper creek as far as the cop
per mines extend.
It is provided that a branch line shall
be built from touio point east of Manias
ta past down some stream to the Yukon
river to t'e Canadian boundary .
This company is to be capitalized at
$30,000,000. It Is to have tho right to
bond and mortgage the line at not to
exceed $30,000 per mi'e, but this mort
gage is to be subsequent to the claim of
the United States for the $16,000 per
mile advanced by the government.
Provision is made for appointment by
the president of iupctors, who shall
wlLees the construction of the line ai.d
report each ten miles built, and upon
receiving the inspector's certificate the
government shall issue thirty-year three
per cent bonds, which shall be pro facto
a first mortgage on the railway and all
The measure requires that the road
thill be built at the rate of forty
miles a year, and its construction to tie
under the immediate supervision of the
secretary of the interior.
Its Friends Confident of Favorable Ac
tion in the Senate Daring the
Nsw York, Jan. 30. A dispatch to
the herald from Washington says:
It is the understanding of the senate
naval committee that the naval person
nel bill will come np for consideration
in the senate during the coming week.
Friends of the measure are confident of
favorable action, but fear it will be
loaded down with injurious amend
ments. The department is anxious that the
measure become a law as it passed the
bouse, and without the provisions in
serted by the senate committee, author
izing the appointment into the service
of volunteer officers under 25 years who
served during tho war. It hM been
foond, however, that if the president
chooses, he can make the provision
practically useless. He is required to
raake such appointments within two
years trom the date of the passage of
the act. Few of these officers are not
over 24 years, and it would not be abso
lutely necessary for the president to
make more than tbirty appointments,
and these in the lower grades.
Orders have been issued by the navy
department detaching all retired officers
except those on duty as prizj commis
sioners, from active service and ordering
them to proceed to their homes. Eighty
per cent of the volunteer officers have
American Vessels Predominate.
Sah Fbascisco, Jan.30. The Ameri
ran shipping interests of the Hawaiian
Islands have largely increased since their
annexation to the United States. There
are now loading for or on the way to the
island! fiftj vessels, of whicn tnirty
five fly the American flag, five the Brit
ish, throe the Norwegian and two the
German. These veesels bail from Tar
iona torU. most of them laden with gen

with cargoes of ugar.
WORLD HAS SEEN
Cold Strike at Isabella Ground, Colo.
Far Exceedes the Wildest Ex
pectations. Denver, Jan. 30. A special to the
hes from Cripple Creek, Colo., says ol
the recent strike in Isabella Orouod:
Your correspondent saw chunks of syl
vanite that were three inches thick, and
solid metal, and chunks of oxidized ore
of same width that be whittled with a
Docket knife. No assays have been made
I on the rock ; It is not necessary, but
pieces of free-gold ore, if ore it can be
called at all, rnn over $500,000 per ton.
The Mollie Gibs u never produced any
ore that carried more ounces in silver
per ton than the Isabella does In gold.
With every hour's work the streak is
lengthening and widening. Joining the
metallic body there are six feet of quartz
that will rnn from $1000 to$'J000 per ton.
Manager Kilburn sai.l : "I don't like
to say anything that will excite people
any more than they are at present. The
metallic ore body has doubled in size
both ways since yesterday morning.
Some of the pieces of ore are 80 per
cent gold. I never saw such mineral,
ami I do not believe its like was ever
mined in this or any other camp in the
world. We have bad no assays taken on
the rock, hut a ton of it conld be picked
out that would run anywhere from
$50,000 to $200,000. The strike was
made in a new ore body at a depth of
850 feet. The chute has been cut at the
seventh level 200 feet above, and aleo at
the fifth. At the latter place the assay
was obtained in the breast of the drift
yesterday, on two feet of ore that went
better than $1000 per ton. There is at
least blocked out in one level, between
the ninth and seventh levels $5,000,000
worth of ore."
AN AGREEMENT IS
NOW IN SIGHT
Negotiations for an American-Canadian
Trade Treaty Have Taken a Favor
JCkw York, Jan. A dispatch to the
Herald from Washington says: Pros
pects for an agreement between the
British and American j tint high com
mission on questions affecting Canada
and the United States have greatly im
proved within the last week, and it is
expected now that a complete agreement
on all points will be reached early in
Reciprocity has been the stumbling
block in the way of the commission.
The principal poiDt of friction was in re
gard to the duty on lumber imposed
nnder the Dingley law. Candians de
manded concessions on this that the
American commissioners were not at
first willing to make.
This question has not been settled,
but It is understood that both sides are
more conciliatory, each being anxious
that the entire negotiations should not
fail on account of one point of agree
ment. Bit Lire Saved.
Mr. J. E. Lilly, a prominent citizen
of Hannibal, Mo., lately bad a wonder
ful deliverance from a frightlul death.
In telling of it he says: "I was taken
with typhoid fever, that ran into pneu
monia. My Inngs became hardened. I
was so weak I couldn't even sit np in
bed. Nothing helped me. I expected
to soon die of consumption, when I
heard of Dr. King's New Discovery.
One bottle gave great relief. I con
tinued to use it, and now am well and
strong. I cau't say too much in its
praise." This marvellous medicine is
the surest and quickest core in the world
for all throat aud lung trouble. Regular
size 50 cents and (1.00. Trial bottle
