although it. h unlikely that any ex
cept the high grndo coals of the Pa
cific coast and tho Matanuska and
Boring river fields are suitable for
shipment far from the mines, many
others may be locally of extreme im
portance and great value.
The coal milling Industry of Alnska
Is still practically undeveloped, the
total pioducllon for 1000 tho year
of greatest output being CGC0 short
tons, valued at $20,000. Tho most
activo mining opeintions have been
on Cook Inlet, In southwestern Alas
ka, on the Yukon, In Seward penin
sula and at Capo Llsburne, all under
taken to provide fuel for local use, by
small coast-wise or river steamers,
at mining camps, and at canneries.

THE geological survey of tho Unit
ed States government at Wash
ington is continuing its field work in
Alaska to ascertain thc extent of that
country's coal supply, two of it3 ex
perts having been thu3 employed
since early in May and they have al
ready finished tho work in thc south
eastern part' of that territory and It
is thought that tho Investigations this
year will add greatly to the existing
knowledge of the coal resources that
far north.
Alaska has 600,000 'square 'miles,
and of this it is estimated that over
12,500 squaro miles aro underlain by
coal bearing rocks which contain
largo seams and over 1200 more have
workablo coal ranging in age from
carboniferous to tertiary and In com
position from anthraclto of good
qualify through high grade seml
bltumlnous steam and cooking coals
and ordinary bituminous coal to lig
nites of various characters. Many of
tho known coal deposits arc of great
thickness, especially whero the coal
carries a largo carbon content, but
high grade of coal and great thick
ness of b'eds rare as a rulo accom
panied by geologic structure unfav
orable to mining.
From tho Pacific coast to tho
Behrlng sea and the ''Arctic slope,
through the valleys of Copper and
Yukon rivers and, their tributaries
coal beds aro widely distributed; and
necessary if car3 were not released
more promptly. These warnings
have been repeated more lately In
other quarters, and the utmost effait
i3 being made by tho company to se
cure the cooperation of tho shippers
in getting tho freest use of its caiy,
and to mnko shippers realize that tho
use of freight cars as storage ware
houses Is unfair both to tho railroad
and to other shippers.
FIGURES compiled at tho request of
E. H. Harrlman show tho great
extent to which Pacific Coast shippers
are delaying the unloading of freight
cars urgently needed to move the
record breaking freight traffic on the
Southern Pacific. The rcords of the
principal California and Oregon ship
ping centers show that since April 1st
an average of 3632 cars per day were
hold overtime for unloading on tho
Harrlman lines in the two states.
From that date on May 1st condi
tions grew rapidly worse, but the
June records show considerable im
provement owing to tho railroad's In
sistence that earn be released. Port
land shlppeis on April 1 were holding
07 1 car3, which they had Increased to
832 on May 1, and teduqetl to 216 by
June 11. San Francisco had 1S60
cars tied up on April 1, was holding
2358 May 1, and 1640 June 12. Oak
land's record was 494 for April 1,
429 for May 1, and 365 for the mid
dle of this month. Sacramento and
Los Angeles shippers are holding 150
more cars now than on May 1.
Tlio average number of cars so
withheld from service aggregate over
twenty per cent of tho total new
equipment bought by the Union Pa
cific and Southern Pacific for deliv
ery up to July 1. This new equip
ment amounts to 8,000 cars for the
latter system and 7,000 for the Union
Pacific lines. Tho advantage ship
pers would derive from this large ad
dition to tho Harrlman lines' equip
ment, involving an outlay of $31,000
000, Is materially offset by shippers'
delays in unloading and releasing
Owing to the freight congestion
four months ago, when tho Southern
Pacific was loading forty cars a day
into San Francisco in excess of tho
number of cars unloaded, warning
was given that embargoes or in
creased demurrage charges would bo

Like seeks like Is an eternal law of nature Although but imperfectly recognised, s
absolute This same law holds good in building of factories A factory is built always at
that point where there are fewest obstacles to be overcome, where tributary raw materials are unlim
ited and markets unrestricted If this holds good in one case it will hold good in several--a dozen
or a hundred
North Bend but a few years ago had one factory, soon it had several, now there are a dozen, and the raw materials are her
for a hundred more. Factories make payrolls, these in turn create business houses which invite banks, jobbers, traders and trans
portation facilities, and all go to the making of a city because "Its Payroll Talks," which creates a demand, for real estate There
is beaten pthto our door because we have the best bargains in North Bsn:l real estate
