Greely, chief of the United States
eignal service corps, passed through
the city this morning bound for Se
attle, where he will make arrange
ments for the landing of tho Alaskan
cable connecting that city with Ju
neau and Sitka.
The mission of General Greely at

ing of the cable is to confer with
the coast army officers and the busi
ness men of Seattle relative to a
place for the landing of the cable.

a war measure, it is also to be used

Fort Lawson. However, if this was
the only landing the remoteness from
Seattlo would destroy most of its
value for commercial purposes.
Two plans havo been suggested in
this connection. The one most favor
able Is to land the cable at the fort
and connect It with- a land wiro to
tho city. The work of laying the ca
ble Is to be undertaken at once. The
general during his Western trip will
also arrange many other details.
