In n-.y 10 years' experience In Alaska
I have noticed that nine out of ten

the states say they have large mining

machinery or dredges. The truth more
than likely is that they have "cold

Also. I notice that men who have
not made a success of mining, whom
we call "chalrwarmers" here, try to
rush Into print as soon as tSey 'get

now is that something of the truth
concerning conditions here be told. The
stories of rich strikes, which have been

It has been published in s"me papers
that Alaska produced more than a mil
lion dollars more gold in 1910 than it
did In l'i. Nome was unable to
maintain its streets, sidewalks or sew

It does not even own Its own fire team.

problem It takes from four to seven
men to operate a dredger, which will
do the work of from ao to 100 men.
All but two dredges bring In their

POST IS DECLINED
John F. 0'Shea Will Not Serve
on Port Commission.
PRESS OF BUSINESS PLEA
Captain Albert Crowe to Accept
Place on Board, Suggests Syste
matizing Methods of Con
ducting All Affairs.
Pleading press of business locally
and the fact that there are strong
probabilities that he will be absent
from the state for a considerable
period, John F. O'Shea, appointed by
Governor West as his personal choice
as the seventh membew of the Port of
Portland Commission, has decided that
he cannot accept the position. He said
last night that he had reached that
decision after, giving the matter deep
"Being a member of such a body Is
an important position, and I feel that
to fill it properly a person should be
ready at all times to give the details
his attention," said Mr. O'Shea. "My
business Is such that I cannot spare
the time, and besides, I contemplate
trips outside of Oregon, and In being
away for a long period I would be
holding a position that another could
fill advantageously who has the time."
West to Name Another.
The appointment of Mr. O'Shea was
generally satisfactory, and it was par
ticularly gratifying to himself and
friends that the state's chief executive
honored him In that regard. His
declination of the post will give Gov
ernor West another opportunity to
exercise his prerogative of naming the
last member. K. D. Inman, Captain
Albert Crowe and James Macgulre
were appointed with Mr. O'Shea as new
members, there being W. D. Wheel
wright, J. C. Alnsworth and C. F.
Adams, of the present personnel, to
"While I have no desire to appear
presuming or as directing the affairs
of the Commission, no doubt every
man appointed to a public office soon
forms ideas of new methods that might
be introduced," said Captain Crowe,
when asked yesterday for an expres
sion of his opinion as to the work the
new body should undertake. "System
is everything, I believe, and that Is
shown in the manner In which the
office of Superintendent Campion is
conducted. That I am somewhat fa
miliar with, because of having con
stant business in maritime circles.
Harmony Easily Attained.
"There should be no difficulty main
taining the objects of the Commission
harmoniously, and like most established
enterprises, there will probably be in
troduced new features. I think that
all public bodies should maintain a
complete Inventory of property and
equipment In their possession. In the
Port of Portland's affairs a list of
vessels and gear would be valuable,
because It could be checked over fre
quently and at any period an idea could
be gained of the cost of each depart
ment in the way of maintenance, what
new work or equipment had been as
signed to different vessels since the
Inventory waa made.
"I feel that such matters should be
handled by an active committee made
up of men with time to visit the ves
sels, public drydocks and other depart
ments frequently, so that they would
be In touch with the situation and,
I when questions arise at meetings, they
could act Intelligently, and at the same
time explain features that might not
be familiar to other members. Also,
heads of departments should file re
ports at each monthly meeting, show
ing business handled by them and their
men. expenditures and receipts, and
Mr. Macgulre. who, until five years
ago, when he embarked in business for
himself, followed mechanical pursuits,
said that while his appointment on the
Commission was unsolicited, and that
he would not have viewed the sugges
tion of his name favorably, he In
tended to remain in the work. He
sums up his Ideas In one statement,
and that is. the Commission should be
organized and conducted along lines
that promise the best results for the
general Interests of Portland.
