GREAT COMMERCIAL GATE

River Business Increaslnq From Year
to Year Will Make a Great City at
the Mouth of the Yukon People
Want Harbor Improvement.
Will II. Drill, special correspondent
for tho Seattlo Star, with tho sena
torial commission In Alaska, writing
from St. Michaels, says ot that far
"The thing which Impresses tho
visitor first about St. Michaels Is the
groat amount of money tied up there.
When tho trading company combine
was effected two or three yoars ago
and four of tho five companies operat
ing In the country were combined,
great fleets of river steamboats went
out of business.
'!A score of these boats are now
on tho beach at St, Michael waiting
for the elements to completo tho de
struction which has already tfegun.
Ten or a dn7.en of these boats nro
floating palaces, or worn a year or
two ago, but they have now been
abandoned and It would hardly be
possible to sell them for junk.
"These boats cost their builders
anywhere from $75,000 to $175,000
apiece and tho total cost of tho croft
now abandoned In St. Michael harbor
would nguro considerably over $1,
000,000. Naturally nil, these beached
boats give tho town an ancient and
gloomy appearance, and when tho en
thusiastic company 'boomers tell of
the future of St. Michael one does
, not need to turn around lo sec one
. of these massive hulks staring him in
mi nt ftin fnnot
and placing a good-sized 'copper' on
tho 'boomer's' enthusiasm.
"St. Michael would, however, g've
promise of being nt some time a
very Important point, were It not for
one thing. Its chief advantage Is Its
harbor, tho only one on the western
coast of Alaska. There Is no doubt
that tho Yukon country Is destined
to a steady growth and that the nat
ural business of the river Is bound to
Increase, In spite of- the fnct that the
great rush Is over and the boom Is
"There can, however, ' never be a
town of any size at this point, for
tho whole Island Is a military reserva
tion, and even the big company plants
are there only by permission of tho
"Tho lslnnd wns reserved years ago
as a military reservation and unless
a good part of It Is reopened the fu
ture city at the mouth of the Yukon
must be built nt some other point.
"The people of St. Michael, partic
ularly the big commercial compan
ies, nro very anxious for tho Improve
ment of their harbor, and particu
larly for the improvement of the
mouth of tho Yukon.
"The great spread of tho waters
at the mouth 'of the delta mnko nav
igation there dlffloult and future con
gresses will doubtless see millions of
dollars In river and harbor appro
priation bills for tho Improvement of
this harbor and this water way."

To K. W. Schmidt's pharmacy: Dear
Sirs. As agents for the Fulton Com

facts in the Call office In this city
that should Interest you and the edi
tors of Oregon, as well as newspaper
men generally We copy now from
a letter from Clifford Houso of the
"However Improbable may seem tho
statement that Brlghts' Disease and
Diabetes aro now curable In a great
majority of all cases, It Is well within
tho province of some of us in tho busi
ness department of the Call to know
that it Is true. Mr. Edward Short
of this department was given up by
his physicians as a victim of DIaDotes,
and Is now perfectly well. Tho mother
of one of tho editorial staff has also
recovered from Diabetes. This was
so conclusive that I told a friend, a
well-to-do citizen '6T Duluth, Minn.,
who had Ilrights' Disease, and ho too
wo ...in niun n,iii tlint nu ex-suurume
