MINING MAN PREDICTS BIG FUTURE FOR JUNEAU Thos. A. Parker, a prominent min ing man of the Cook Inlet section, has been in Juneau for the past sov- i oral days attending to some business matters, but nevertheless has found time to have a look at the develop ment work now In progress In and around Juneau. Ho has tramped up all the gulches where work Is in progress nnd has been able to get his impressions from personal contact rather than from other sources. To an Empire representative he said: "Yes, I've been here about two weeks and during this time I have visited the various mining properties under development "It is my candid opinion that Ju neau, the old stamping grounds of the original Alaska sourdough, is on the ove of entering into a new era of life?one so changed from the pres ent that few of the minds of Juneau's citizens have but a vague conception of it. "I venture to say that by the end o' another five years the boundaries i of the city of Juneau will extend from the Shattuck saw mill along the i shores of Gastineau channel to the ] power station at Salmon Creek, i When the extensive development work now under way is Anally completed | and the gold bearing rock is being i crushed by the thousands of tons < dally this camp will be another Home i Btake. Possibly It will become the i rival of the great gold producing cen ter In South Africa. "This town of Juneau, which has for such a long period of time re mained stagnant will take on new life and vigor. There will be new blood transferred Into the municipal arteries and plenty of it; the little city will come out of this state of coma and start down the lane of prog ress and prosperity which can only end with the building of a large, healthy municipality from the pres ent nucleus. "In this section the mining indus try is blessed with ample water pow er and an equable climate. Electric ity will be the chief factor in carry ing on the mining Industry which will insure a great saving in the matter , of handling rock. This economic fac tor will permit the grinding of ore that otherwise would swell the waste pile or remain untouched in the cor rugated hills. "The development work as It has progressed thus far speaks of the ability and energy of the men In charge and when completed will be a worthy monument to the engineer directing the physical and financial departments of the institutions. "I have visited many water power sites from British Columbia to Cali fornia and of course have seen some of much greater magnitude than these, but none of them were better installed than these in the vicinity of Juneau. "Yes, I am an optimist. I am al ways cheerful and hopeful when I contemplate Alaska's resources, es pecially those I have come In con tact with personally. Sometimes de velopment work will cause an opti mist's views to seek oblivion, but active physical work must be done to bring about the change. "Ever hear of the Irishman who was working on the skeleton frame of a sky-scraper? Well, he fell from a thirteenth floor girdle and as he was passing a fellow workman on the third floor he sang out: 'I'm alright yet.' He was an optimist." JackJohnson Is Arrested CHICACTCr-!Wr. 8. ?
