THE ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
VOL. 1, NO. 25. JUNEAU, ALASKA, MONDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1912. PRICE TEN CENTS * ? GERMANY HURLS DEFI AT RUSSIA PHYSICAL SHOWING ON ALASKA-JUNEAU Usually the flrsi question by a stranger. landing at the City dock in Juneau, is about the activity on the side hill almost directly facing the questiouer. While still talking a number of blasts are heard in rapid succession and the stranger is in formed that this is the portal of a tunnel which is the terminal of a tramway system, leading to a great gold mine, and neairby is pointed out the spot where the 150-stamp mill is to be built and in operation during the coming summer. The Property. The group of claims belonging to the Alaska- Juneau Company are in the same gold belt as the Persever ance mine. Sheep creek properties, and other claims of the Alaska-Gas tineau Company. For some time the Alaska-Juneau Company has operated a 30-stamp mill on one of it properties common ly known as the "Little Treadwell." The mine and mill are both under the supervision of Mr. George Jones When President Bradley, who is the principal owner in the Alaska-Ju neau Company, decided to build a new mill on the beach in Juneau, and to bring the ore from the mine to it for reduction, he naturally wanted the great undertaking In ca pable hands. Superintendent Kinzie said let George do it. therefore this shall be a story of what George Jones has done this past year. Main Tunnel. The main tunnel starting on the south side of Snowslide gulch, has been driven back under the moun tain a distance of 4.350 feet. This tunnel will be 6.000 feet long when completed and at its inner terminal a raise of 1.0f>0 feet will be made to connect with the present levels of the "Little Treadwell" mine. The tunnel runs through a greenstone for mation most of the way. but they have now just passed a contact and are working in what appears to be a graphitic slate. They are using timbers at this point. This tunnel is 7x9 and is pro greasing satisfactorily. There arc two machine drills in use. The Trams Completed. All of the connecting tramways are completed and in use. Following along the tram 1,500 feet in a south erly direction tunnel number one is reached. This tunnel 250 feet long is finished. Another 800 feet of tramway brings the observer to tunnel number two. This tunnel will be 450 feet long. It is being built by contract. The con tractors are in about 90 feet on the north end and back about 40 feet from the south portal. Tunnel Number Three. Two hundred feet south of tunnel number two is tunnel number three. It is planned to carry water through this tunnel and the floor will conse quently be lower than the other al lowing the car tracks to be laid on trestle work above. This tunnel Is to be 2.200 feet long terminating at the beach. It will require consider able time and skill to finish this work. They are working on this tun nel with hand drills. Around on the south portal of this tunuel an effort is being made to in stall machine drills. The compres sor is in position and the power is at hand, but a certain bit of machin ery is missing which, however, will be here when the Spokane arrives. The Flume. A service flume has been construct ed and is ready for use. This flume 3x3 is 12.000 feet long and is de signed to furnish water for the bat teries of the new mill and to help in generating power. The flume, and tramway with its tunnel connections parallel each other as to grade having an elevation of about 430 feet at the main or Gold creek tunnel, and 400 at the end of the line near the beach. There are about 90 men employed at the present time on the work un der way. All or most of these men live in Juneau and board themselves. BIG PAYROLLS FOR JUNEAU VERY SOON .Mr. J. A. Hellenthal of the firm of Hellenthal & Hellenthal. who recent ly returned from San Francisco, was Interviewed by an Umpire reporter to day. .Mr. Hellenthal says that Ju neau is everywhere regarded as one of the great quartz mining centers. "Everyone seems to realize," he says, that the development work now in progress is bound to make Juneau a city of considerable population." When asked in regard to the Alas ka-Juneau, Mr. Hellenthal said: "I know of no change in the plans from those already announced by Presi dent ? Bradley and G teral Superin tendent Kinzie. The work work out lined in these plans is being rush* d to completion with ail possible speed. Both President Bradley and Superin tendent Kinzie feel certain that the company will have 150 stamps in op eration by next fall. To these, 150 , additional stamps will be added as the work progresses. "President Bradley likes Juneau and it his intention in connection with his operations here to carry out his general policy of upbuilding the community in which he operates. N'o company store will be established nor will the company build any board ing houses. Since the mill will be built close to town, it will be possi ble to operate a train between the mill and the Basin mines to take the : employees to and from their work, and enable the entire mine crew as well as the mill crew to live in Ju neau. "These plans if carried out will of i-ourse add largely to the population of Juneau and do much to Increase ; its general prosperity. "I predict that within the next year : this city will at least double its pop ulation." TAG DAY WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL. Russcl Casey is looking for a safe place to put the overs resulting from the tag sales of Friday and Satur day. which was instituted for the pur- > pose of raising funds for the new football suits of the high school lads.; FROM MRS.

Dec. 2.?The report from CoiiBtnutinople to the effect that the peace protocol, arranged by the Bul garian and Turkish plenipotentiaries, would not be signed until TueBday, has given rise to a suspicion that not oven u temporary armistice has been agreed upon, a situation that may be duo to the peremptory de mands of the allleB.
