HIGHER THAN INDICATED
First Surrey Made by 'Government Along. Southeastern
Territory Coast Was Hurriedly Compiled So Reports '
; ; , ' - Captain Werllch, Lighthouse Inspector. rL'V
Ths mountains and sjlaolers alone tbe
' southeastern Alsskan coaat are much
higher than the figures given tj the
goyernment charts. Not that the peaks
have grown since the last survey, but
It-was made tiurrtedl and' under' dif
ficulties not -conducive -to accuracy. A
second survey Is being made- and it has
, already led to the discovery that gla
ciers tower several hundred feet higher
over the sea, than the maps Indicate.
This "Interesting information" r wis
brought here when Captain P. , J.
Werflch, lighthouse inspector of
, this district, returned from a 7.000-mile
cruise along the coast . of- Alaska and
among the Islands In the north Paclflo
and Behring aea. The cruise waa made
on the stanctt and finely equipped ten-
; der .- Armaria, which , waa recently
brought out frqm the Atlantlo coaat.
The Armerla reached Seattle yesterday
and Captain Werllch came by rail to
Portland because of urgent business.
Thwmerla win proceed to the head
'ni it Astoria, soon. - . -

"Surveys of the glaciers along' Lynn
canal are being made by. our geological
department," said Captain .Werllch,
"and I wag told by the officer In charge
that the mountains are considerably
higher uian shown by the first survey;
This, bears out Observations I -made on
previous visits to that part of the eoun-
'Researches ere olng on In several
places along the Alaska coaat, two
. scientific apeditlans, the Boston Tech
nological , and the Carnegie, being in
the Held. - I met the former Jn. board
t the Lydla at Unalaska and the latter
on the brig Galatea at Sitka, The Boa
ton Technological has been examining
the volcanoes on Unalaska extensively
and the conclusion has been reached that
Immense quantities of sulphur are with
in easy reach. Those In charge of the
expedition are very enthusiastic over
the result OA. their visits to the vol
canoes on W Smalt Island and say the
sulphur thef ,!ln plain view Is fully as
' good as thai shipped here from Japan."
An account of the- entire, ti lu. whK-h

going on after, leaving Portland early
i the spring. ,AU the lighthouse sta
tions and towns along tbe coast wire

In communication with the outside world
. since the vlalt of the Under Heather
. several months before.
- Keeper Ole Olson at Scotch Cap light
gave a graphic account of how It took
him a month to reach his station when
appointed about the first of ths year. He
had been transferred from one of the
Alaskan coaat stations nearby and took
the steamer- Dora- for - his new home.
Such a high aurf waa running that the
ateamer could not get near lana xnr a
whole month and In the meantime
Keeper Oleon remained on board and
did duty at the wheel. He waa Anally
put ashore at Middle Point, a small
place consisting of one hut occupied
py m trapper nimni nownorrp.
It Is about 11 miles north of Scotch
Cap and Olrfon decided to walk to the
station - tnat nignt. - starting out ai
o'clock in the evening he walked and
walk, iMrlir all ntaht In the ' deeD
snow and early In the morning fell
asleep In the drifts from exnauation.
Somehow or other he did not f reese to
death, but -awoke much refreshed and
continued : on hla way . toward Scotch
Cap. He arrived there at 1 o'clock in
the afternoon. Everybody declared hia

Thlnga are quiet In Alaska this sum

"Nomqi has suffered much from serious
strikes, and other places are dull and
dead. Men are hanging around doing
nothing and it was said that a number
of steamers would be taken off their
run because of the decline In business.

PROMINENT HOTELMEN REVIVE
I OLD MEMORIES AFTER 1 8 YEARS
J.Tbt II years H. C Bowers aad James
', T. Clyde, formerly manager of the Hotel
f Havtland Of Cincinnati, who 1 In Port
land on hla-way to Seattle to assume
ths management of the new Savoy hotel,
..' had not mat, yet upon their meeting in
; the Portland; hotel Saturday- night they
' recognised each others immediately and
; commented' upon the lack of change In
fone another's appearance.
a Chen the hotel managers got together
-'a corner " of the hotel and talked
'' Jut old times' In New Tor, which
'Viace they both left to come west with
'Billy" Lee In m. Mr. Bowers went
to Spokane, Mr. Clyde to Kaneaa City
' and Mr. Lee to Taooma. - Mr., Lee has
s alnce died, but many traveling men who
' came to 'the coast remember him well
,' In connection with V.r; Bowers and Mr.
Clyde. 4 . .
v. Mr- Clyde started In the hotel bual
- Tieas In San Francisco, but earns to Port
land on several occasions while en ths
. coast, the last time being In 1814. ' In
speaking about his former vlslta to the
Hose City he said:
Evea in thoss daya Portland always
had the appearance of a substantial,
conservative, wealthy city. . She never
impressed on as being a frontier town.
Of course her development hag been re
markable. Why, the walla of the Port
land had not been thought of at that
time. If I remember. correctly. .All of
the city waa down on the river front
and tbe wooda covered the greater por
tion of the west aide.
"These buildings that are going vp
and have gone, up are the surprises I
have met with. . No one ever dreamed
of them In the days when Z waa In
Portland. -The ' inhabitants thought
Portland would probably grow to be a
goodly slsed ' city, but' few looked to
see her- the metropolis aha has grown
to be." i , ' -
Mr. Clyde ' la accompanied by Mrs.
Clyde" and their children. They will be
In Portland several days, when they
will leave for Seattle. Mr. and Mrs.
Clyde have many friends In Portland,
who have been showing them the sights
of the olty.

Metal Under thm Quicksilver.
W. F. Bedell, a Portland mechanical
engineer, has succeeded In harmonising
specific '.gravity and amalgamation In
worklnaout an amalgamator which sev
eral well-known mining men hold will
shortly revolutionise - gold mining.
Briefly stated, Mr. Bedell haa aooom
pllshed what for 40 years mining engi
neers all over ths world have tried to
do deliver the product from ths placers
and from the mill, into, and under ths
quicksilver by. means of gravity and
jtamnrctud air - - .....
BMtUi invention is Known as ine
"flour gold amalgamator," a small port
able contrivance, easily handled and
weighing only 460 pounds. - It can be
shipped to any mining camp without
the least trouble and coats to manu
facture only 150. It requires but eight
horsenower to onerats with a handling
capacity of 100 tone.
The new Invention without ths use of
gravity pressure or compressed air de
livers the nroduet into and under the
qulckallver by mesne . of two hollow
shafts which axtsnd down Into the
quicksilver and these shafts are con
stantly in motion, seeping toe quick

All oartlclss In ths product which will
amalgamate, or of a apeciflo gravity
aa great or greater than that of quick
silver, remain in the pan and the lighter
material or waste, psssss through the
quicksilver, and coming to the surface,
is disposed of through aa adjustable
outlet which is properly constructed in
the center of the pan and for ths exclu
sive purpose. '
-Tor nearly a year thoss Interested
have been perfecting the new machine
and- now It t reported nearly ready for
market. Dally demonstrations are made
at the Colorado Agricultural building,
Iewls and dark- fair grounds. Six ma
chines are completed and the Manufac
turing tt , Guarantee - corporation has
been formed to manufacture and handle
the amalgamators. Nona will be sold,
the company preferring to lease them to
mines at a monthly rental of 150. Pres-
