THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-SATURDAY, JULY 12, 1902.
Special Correspondence of The Tribune.
MILLION DOLLARS 4 month Is
Atlto estimate mado by the Bureau
of Statistics of tho present vrtluo
of tlio market which "frozen
Abulia" offers the producers nnd manu
facture of tlio United Stnlos,
"Commercial Alaska In 1001" Is the title
of a monograph Just Issued by the Treas
ury Bureau of Statistics, ln.lt nre pre
'vented some Rtrlklng flguresnbout this
(Until recently) little explored nnd little
understood territory of the United States.
Uv reason of tho nppllcotlon of modern
systems of travel nnd transportation,
Alaska Is now as accessible as Arizona.
Tlirco days of travel by modern ocean
steamers from Seattle, among tho Islands
and along tho coast which forms tho
southeastern extension of Alaska, lands
the traveler nt Skngwny; twelve hours by
rail over tho mountains carries him to tho
head-waters of tho Yukon, where com
fortable, nnd well-equipped river steamers
tarry him to the gold Held of central
Alaska, or down tho Yukon river, which
Is navigable for more than 2,000 miles nt
this season of tho year. From the mouth
of tho Yukon another comparatively short
trip, by Btenmer, carries him to Cnpu
Nome tho latest nnd greatest of the gold
Ileitis of Alaska.
Gold, fish arid furs are, according to this
monograph, tho principal Industries of
Alaska, at tho present time, and they
send to the United States llfteen million
dollars' worth of their products, eight mil
lions of gold, nix millions ot flsh-chlcfly
salmon and the remainder furs.
The cost of Alaska wns J7,20O,0OO. Tho
revenue which the government has de
rived from It since Its purchase amounts
to over nine million dollars, nnd tho
vnlue of tlio products nre now twice ns
much every year ns It cost. The total
value of the products of Alaska brought
to tho United States Blnce Its purchase Is
(according to tho beat estimates that the
Bureau of Statistics is able to mnkc)
about 330 millions, of which fifty millions
is precious metals, fifty millions products
of the fisheries chiefly salmon-and fifty
million moro furs chiefly Bcal fur. Prob
ably fifty million dollars of American
capital uro Invested In Alnskan industries
nnd business enterprises, Including trans
portation systems. In the salmon fisheries
ulonc, the companies engaged have a.
capitalization of twenty-two million dol
lars and the value of their plants, Includ
ing vessels, is given nt twclvo million dol
lars. In the mining industries, there nre
large investments the great quartz mill
ot Juneau being the largest quartz stamp
mill In the world, while several other
quartz mills represent large Investments.
With the inflow of capital, the develop
ment of the transportation systems, and
tho gold discoveries, has como the build
ing up of towns and the development of
cities with modern conveniences of life.
Nome City, which is located but a com
paratively short distance south of the
Arctic circle, has now a population of
over 32,000; postal facilities have been so
extended that the number of postofflccs
is now afcout sixty, and malls nre being
regularly delivered north of tho Arctic
Agricultural possibilities In Alaska
have, until within a recent period, been
considered of but slight importance. As
the country was explorod, however, and
its conditions of climate and soil studied,
its natural products observed, and experi
ments mado with various classes of agri
cultural productions, it, became apparent
that the agricultural possibilities of the
country, and especially of the south and
Miuthcast, where tho climate is modified
by the Japan current, wero oi consiucr
nble Importance, in view of the practica
bility of furnishing at least a part of the
food supply of tho population which the
varied resources of Alaska seem likely to
Mistnln nnd make permanent. These ob-s-crvatlons
and experiments lead those
who liavo participated In them to the be
lief that vegetables in great variety can
bo produced all along tho southern coast
and in the valley of the "Yukon, nnd by
vume the possibility of the successful pro
duction of wheat and oats is strongly sup
ported. The grasses for the support of
eattlo are abundant, and the experiment
with live stock thus far justify the belief
that this feature of the food require
ments of Alaska may bo furnished by the
development of stock farms in the south
ern section. In the north, vast areas are
covered with a moss similar to that upon
which tho reindeer thrives In other parts
of the Arctic regions, and in view of this
fact, tho introduction of reindeer from Si
beria was begun a few years slnco and
has proved extremely successful, about
11,000 now being distributed through north
west Alaska, and tho experiment has
advanced sufficiently to justify the confi
dent belief that tho reindeer will, within
a few years, prove an important feature
in furnishing both tho transportation and
food supply of northern and northwest
The gross area of Alaska Is, according
to tho 1900 census, DD0.S0I. The governor
of Alaska, in a recent leport, states that
this ii equal to the combined area of tho
twenty states of Maine, Now Hnmpshlre,
Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhodo Island,
Connecticut, New Yoilt, New Jersey,
Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Vir
ginia, West Virginia, North Carolina,
South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Ala
bama, Mississippi and Tennessee.

COST OF WHITE HOUSE BUSI
NESS. Waldo Fawcett, In tho World's Work.
Asldo from tho president's salary and
the expense of keeping tho white house In
repair, it costs the government only
about $65,000 a. year to operate tho cstab
ishment. Of this amount $30,000 is ex
pended in the salaries of tho thirty men
on tho executive pay roll. These r.uigo
from the secretary to tho president, with
a salary of $3,000 a year, down to mes
sengers and doorkeepers whoso pay is
In some instances perhaps one-tenth that
sum. This remaining $15,000 defrays all
the other expenses tho replacing of
worn-out office furniture, typewriter le
palrs, stationery, nnd feed for the half
dozen horses in the white houso stables.
Of courso tho executivo office has tho
benefit of many economics beyond the
reach of the thrifty merchant. For in
stance, all ofllclnl mall is franked, sav
ing approximately $20 a day. Speel.il

Wall Street Review.
New York, July 11., Opening prices lhl
morning were nt tho highest uverage
lovel of tho day. There were striking
ndvnnccs afterwards, notably In Rock
Inland and Missouri Pacific, but these
proved unavailing to sustain tho genet al
market which sagged slowly but stead
ily throughout tho rest of tho session.
The majority of stocks closed lower than
last night and tho declines wero substan
tial In such stocks ni New York Central,
Chesapeake nnd Ohio, Ulilcugo and
Northwestern and olheis which havo re
cently been prominent In tho rise. .Tho'
spurt nt tho opening was duo especially
to the encouragement felt on nccount
of tho government's crop report, espe
cially In respect to corn, which had a
stimulating effect on tlio demand for
grain carrying 'roads. But It becamo
plain nt onco that tho buying wns con
spicuous only in Missouri Paclilcs nnd
Rock Island, which stocks uro particu
larly associated with the bull leaders
of tho maikct. Atchison nnd tho other
Pnclllrs did not move moro than a frac
tion nt any time. Tho mnrket closed dull
and ensj. Total sales for tho day 501,
000 shares. Bonds Wero qulto dull and
irregular. Total sales, par value, $1,973,
