THE ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE_
i, NO. JUNEAU, ALASKA. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1912. PRICE TEN CENTS COL JACKLING FORSEES BIG THINGS A Stampless Mill to Be Erected A stampless stamp mill; steel an-1 concrete bound together in complete and harmonious units, as iudestruct able as time, will be the constructive form of the new buildings to be erect ed by the Alaska-Gastiueau Company in their great industrial project at Sheep creek. "The buildings are all to be of steel and concrete and modeled after our mills in other localities." said Col. I). C. Jackling to The Empire lu speak ing of the development work now be ing done by the Alaska-Gastineau Com pany. The reduction plant at Sheep creek will be the same as is used on nearly all of the other properties of which Col. Jackling is the directing head. The ores have been thoroughly tested out and it is known that the same methods used in Utah. Nevada, Ari zona. and Butte. Mont., will be appli cable here. The rock to be crushed is largely of the same character and the mineral content will respond as readily to the same treatment The mills to be erected will there-' fore be of the same type. There will be no stamps but the system used by the Jackling companies in other local ities will be inaugurated here. While it will be a new departure in the min ing and milling iudustry of Alaska.; it has been demonstrated by several years of experience to be the most economical known method of ex-' tractiug ore values. As a conse quence the Jackling companies have been working properties of very low grade mineral content at a good pro fit. "The first unit to be built at Sheep creek." said Col. Jackling. "will have a capacity of an ordinary 1200-stamp mill. This unit of the industrial proj ect we hope to have finished by the end of next summer." Col. Jackling has been all over the companies work that is now under way. On Saturday he took in thei Sheep creek division; on Sunday the Salmon creek power development, and yesterday was given to the Persever ance mine. "1 am certainly well pleased with the manner in which General Man ager B. L. Thane has handled the work up here," said the Colonel. "I consider it remarkable that so much should be accomplished during so brief a season. Another most pleas ing thought is the aptness with which the working force here grasped the situation and so quickly adapted them selves to some changes that were found to be necessary. I have been in this development business a long time, but I never saw so much ac complished under like conditions." It is expected to have the first unit of the Salmon creek power station working by the middle of Januury. Next season there will be an effort made to complete the big dam de signed and the power development will be carried to its full limit. The Sheep creek tunnel Is progressing sat isfactorily and development work at the Perseverance Is demonstrating a higher appreciation of the proerties held by the company. "We have ore bodies here that will keep the mills grinding for genera tions," said Col. Jackling, "and the people of Juneau should realize that this means a permanency of such a nature as a manufacturing concern. When I was here before I stated that I expected to see the largest quartz mills in the world on Gastincau chan nel, and I see no reason why I should retract that statement now." Some of the mills of Utah have a capacity of 12,000 tons dally. This would seem to Indicate that there is an industry of some magnitude in store for Juneau." Col. Jackling says that he will have to leave soon, not because he Is In a hurry to get away from Juneau, which he says is like summer now, com pared with Butte, but because he has work calling him. INQUIRY INTO |i BUILDING METHODS A great many peopie in Juneau are beginning to talk about the new build- I ings now under construction and ! tho.se contemplated in the near fu- i ture. Naturally in those buildings that are (or the accommodation o( < the public, the question of safety is c receiving some attention. I Ever since the burning of the Ju- ; neau hotel and its frightful loss of s life, a great many have believed that i there should be more care bestowed < for the safety of the public in plan- i ning structures of that nature. i At the present time there are two j theatre buildings under process of con struction and a great deal of comment i has been heard about them. These < buildings have now progressed far i enough that some idea may be gained ; as to the provisions for the safety of < the patrons of those places. V business man said to a represen tative of The Empire: "One of the new play houses under construction < will certainly be a death-trap, the i other I have not looked over, but I hope that an investigation will be made so that errors in construction can be changed before there is a chance for disaster." He did not know whether there . was a building ordinance in the city or not. but he believed there should be. some regulations governing the construction of buildings, especially those intended for hotels and places of amusement Now is the time to buy holly at GOLDSTEIN'S. ???

Genereaux of ttye San Francisco underwriters is aboard the Northwestern enroute to Seward.

Vaptain Genereaux has on board the Northwestern pumps and other useful tackle in the salvage business. From last reports the Dora was ly ing in a favorable position and it is thought that if decent weather pre vails that in a few days temporary re pairs can be made and the ship float ed ready for tow into dry dock. It is quite likely that Cordova will, on her next trip South, drag the Dora down to Seattle for a thorough over hauling. It is not thought, that great damage is done. Lloyd's carried about $20,000 on the Dora. THE DISAPPEARANCE OE WILLIAM WARD No truce has been found of the lost Billy Ward, a well known pioneer, who was last seen in Juneau about Oct 10.

J., Dec. 17.?In an Interview at his home here last night President-elect Wilson discussed the kind of men he wanted In his cabinet. He said that before deciding on the personnel of his official family he would have to determine the typo of cabinet .he wanted. This question ho stated would include whether it was to be a political cabinet, constructed of purely political material, or a per sonal cabinet made up of men whose fitness for the different positions was known to him personally and upon whose Judgment he would like to loan Mr. Wilson decllnod to make any statement as to the men he had in mind, but it can bo stated upon ex cellent authority that Representatives A. Mitchell Palmer, of Pennsylvania and Albert Sidney BurloBon, of Texas, j Senator Gore of Oklahoma, Josephusj Daniels, of. North Carolina, and Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, of Washington, D.
