What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Believed the Country Will Be Capable of Sapporting 10,00,0,- 000 Persona in Something Like Comfort. Some idea of the future of Alaska and its almost boundless resources is given by Harrington Emerson in the Engineering Magazine. Mr. Emerson believes that Alaska can support 'a population of 10,000,000 personsin com- fort, and that at no,distant day It will. be one of the world's richest min- ing and farming districts. The ideas of this explorer are expressed in part aa follows: . \'The Yukon, the fourth largest river in the world, navigable for more than 2,000 miles above its mouth and run- ning in a great semi -circle from iouth- ram I ern to northwestern Alaska, forms a natural highway. All this was known long ago; but it was not knotvn that the interior contained 190 000 square miles of farrang lands and al- most limitless . areas of the richest mineral lands in the world. It is in this unsubclued country that thou- sands of miles of railroad must be built, that great areas will cpen for settlement, absorbing and keeping busy 2,600,000 workers as fast as they choose to go. \It is. however, not the agricultural resources that will immediately at- tract the largest influx of population and capital. About 140 miles from Valdez in the Chittyna valley are very great copper deposits, which doting the last season have been visited by many experts. Some cf the ores run ss per cent, copper, and there are many thousand tons in sight aisaxing 161 er cent. \A great mountain slide has occurred In this region revealing, it Is claimed, as much 11F 40,000,000 tons of high- grade copper ores. Valdez bay and the low pass north of it are the American gateways to the Yukon calley. and al- ready a railroad ha s.been surveyed and partly graced to the intevior. for the copper, thongh it can be quarried like the iron ores of Lake Superior. with- out a railroad will temain wortheas. The railroad itself is assured an un- limited tonnage. Is is fie shortest line to Dawson and the Yukon valley, and what is of more importance, it can carry supplies delivered at Val- dez from sailing vessels or deep draft ocean steamers in all the months of the year, with only one break of bulk at Valdez. and also reach the deep navigable Yukon and the Koyekuk a month earlier than by the Yukon mouth, which is closed by Behring sea ice until July 1. \As shown in the history of the White Pass railroad. the Ingoing traf- fic would in itself be sufficient to war- rant a railroad, but from Dawson the only export is gold. about 70 tons a year. while this road will net only car- ry all the United States government troops and supplies, for which masy hundred thousand dollars are spent, but it will have the unlirn'ted out- bound tonnage f high-grade copper oreg, which, with a freight rate of two dollirs a ton from Valdez to the smel- ters of Puget sotnidi will scarcely be treated in the Interior. \It is not too mach to expect that improvement in transportation facili- ties alone will convert central Alaska into as closely a populated and pros- perous region as Colorado, as the Black Hills, of South Dakota, as the rich mining region of British Colum- bia.\ NEW PHASE IN PHOTOGRAPHY. Artists Now Go to Psalm's@ Instead of Awaiting a Call irons Them • It is no longer regarded as the prop- er thing in society to go to a photo- graph gal'ery to have one's picture taken. Leaders of the smart set at the east have decreed that the artists shall come to the house of the sitters, although an extra charge is involved In the new arrangement. Only Fifth avenue photographers are willing to photograph women in their homes and the men who do this at-home work must be artists of the first class, re- ports a New York paper. These pic- tures in the home have revolutionized one fashion. Formerly a woman would weer all her jewels and take her stand before the camera in her moat pretentious frock, but now these dis- play pictures are tabooed and the woman dresses simply. A favorite pose with one ph6tographer has the subject in a picture hat, with bare shoulders and wearing a simple string of pearls. More recent even than the dashing bat and glistening Shoulders is the photographing of young matrons with their children. In England these pic- tures are in great vogue and the wom- an who poses wears a house gown sug- gestive of the calm of the nursery. The photograph of the lovely countess of Warwick with her daughter was one of the most popular in England. Lady Warwick's arms were entwined about the pretty child, and the picture was sold just the same as those of. Ellen Terry, Edna May and other celebri;.ies. Another woman who A photographed always with her child isik Rachel, countess of Dudley, wife of the lord lieutenant of Ireland. The count- ess is one of the great English beauties.

After graduating she accepted the professorship of Greek at Hastings college, Nebraska, and was married in 1S91 to Prof. Edwin E. Slosson, pro- fessor of chemistry at the University of Wyoming in Laramie. In Wyoming the prisoners of tfie state penitentiary were at one time kept without work on account of the opposition of the trades unions to their employment. Men depriv ed of the saving grace of work, no matter to what part of the community they belong. soon become thrown out of their balance. That happened to the prisoners, who got into a peculiarly morbid and unruly condition. It was in that frame of mind that Mrs. Slosson conceived the idea which the authorities permitted her to put into practice. She arranged for a series of Sunday afternoon talks and experimental lectures by the profes- sors of the university. She herself gave two lectures before the convicts, and when the minister who was acting as the chaplain left the town the prisoners petitioned the governor to appoint her chaplain. Be acceded to the request, and since July. 1899. she has filled the office not only to the satisfaction of the authorities, but, what is more important, to the satisfaction of those who are the en- forced members of her congregation. The prisoners number some 220 and consist for the most, part of young men who have gone west from a spirit of adventure and have got into trou- ble either through drink or from \get - tin g — Th — e — Viatia on The wrong ca We,\ as cattle stealing is euphoniously re- ferred to by the men themselves.
