Mr. O'Connor was warmly greeted when
he arose to apeak. ' He aald he 'was In
America to obtain Its moral and material
support and then added:
"At this point I must mak a correction
of a report which In one respect I am sure
does not represent what I said In a speech
In Brooklyn last night. I did not state
that President Roosevelt would say some
thing on the Irish question which may
make possible th realization of our hopes.
If I had made any such statement I would
have aald something for which I had no
warrant. What I did say was that the
English masses and the Irish manses both
consider lilsn the man who made peace
between Russia and Japan and that both
regard htm as a friend and that the dny
might come when they would welcome
hgn as one of the mediators In trying to t
end the day or lamentable estrangement j
between the Ktigllsh and Irish p-ople." j

WASHINGTON. Ocl. a.-No romance is
of keener interest than the story of the
development of the mining Industry In
Alaeka during the last decade. It is at
tes'ed roughly by th Increase in the value
of It annual output from fi'.too.OMi in 189,1
to more than tlo.OOU.noo in 1W6. The gold
production of 196, according lo reports of
the United Bisks geological survey. In
creased probably SO per cent over lHot.
An Important fact in the advancement of
Alaska' mineral Industry during the last
decade, says the report, is the gnat reduc
tion In mining cost that 'has taken place
during this period. The pioneer miners of
the Yukon could no t afford to handle
gravel averaging r9 than Jlo or 115 to th -cubic
yard. In the same district good
wage ran now be made, even by crude
methods, in extracting gold from pay
streaks averaging leas than 15 to the cubic
yard. ' '
