ATTACK ON CONSTANTINOPLE FAILS SHEEP CREEK AND THE WORK BEING DONE THERE A number of the officials of the Alaska-Castlneau company, together with invited guests constituto<l on ex cursion party to the Sheep creek de velopment work yesterday. The ride down was made on the Santa Klta leaving Juneau at 11 a.m. A short stay was made at the beach camp where luncheon was served. Clearing a Millsite. At this point a body of men are slashing and cleaning the mill and townsite. The point chosen is well sheltered and there seems to be am ple room for building of reduction works, ofllces. ijuarters for the men, and such other structures as the com pany may devise. After luncheon the party was car ried by the tram over the summit where a train running over the con necting railroad was boarder! and the short mey ,.i.;Je to the r.?w Portal camp. Disembarking the party inspected the new buildings which have just been completed. UP-to-Date Buildings. These buildings are certainly up to-date in every respect. The com-1 pressor house is conveniently locat-1 oil and besides containing all of the power generating machinery to be utilized in boring the great tunnel also houses the steam heating plant that ser\es every building in the camp The mess house is built across the street from the compressor house and is arranged so that supplies may reach the kitchen door direct from the cars. A Lang range and all of the best utilities are in evidence. The dressing room for the men con tains a locker for each individual which is rigged for drying clothes. A large building provides baths and other comforts and is to be used as a club house. Pool tables are to be installed and a library provided. Modern Quarters for Men. The sleeping or living apartments are all that could be desired and show in a market! way that care for the workmen has been the first' thought. The entire camp is supplied with' steam heat, electric light and modern i sanitary plumbing, a sewerage sys tem is installed which keeps the wa ter of the place free from contamina tion. The arrangement and construc tion of the buildings shows that com fort. economy and security have been the watchwords both In design and execution. The capacity of the camp is not large, probably limited to 75 men, but it is designed for the tunnel crew I only. At present the tunnel crew Is housed in the buildings of the old Sheep creek mill but will be trans ferred to their new quarters within a week. Inspecting the Tunnel. Lighting candles the party entered the portals of the tunnel now under construction and filed in single col umn under the mighty mountain that envelopes the hidden wealth. A short pilgrimage brought the party to the face of the tunnel where the deafening noise of Foreman O'Neill s drills made conversation impossible. These drills were started last week, as announced in The Empire, and are ! rapidly gnawing through the green I stone toward the ledges of the chain of properties owned by the Alaska Gastineau Company. Another 300 feet of progress will pierce the wall, after which the tunnel will proceed $.000 feet through the ledge matter to a point of intersection with the Perseverance mine tunnel which has an elevation of about 700 feet higher. The two tunnels are to be connected by a shaft after which the ore will all be carried to the main reduction plant on the beach. Emerging from the tunnel the party took great pleasure in viewing the old Sheep creett workings and other points of interest. Robert Semple is superintendent of this division.
