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. - . - .-' .. Z-yna Canal arrays. i "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 jasiea 7 aays, would rill goooaisa book, for there was always something going on after, leaving Portland early i the spring. ,AU the lighthouse sta tions and towns along tbe coast wire visited, and soms of them had not been 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 eacate from 1 freezing to death was mlrau1mia. Thlnga are quiet In Alaska this sum rcer." continued Captain Werllch. "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.

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.

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 silver alive and aotlve and distributing tbe product squally and uniformly, ex-nnalne- to fha action of the aulcksilver every particle of value, regardleaa of Us minuteness. 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.
