TREADWELL, Nov 17? Yesterday
afternoon the Tread well and Alaska
Gastineau football teams met on the
local athletic grounds for the first of
a series of games this year. The for
mer team was defeated by the score
of 21 to ??. The weather was ideal for
football, cold and snappy, but there
was a strong wind blowing, making
forward passes and punting difficult.
The field was in good condition, but !
rather slow in places on account of
the fresh covering of sand that had
recently been tilled in.
There was a large attendance in
spite of the cold weather, many hav
ing come over on the special ferries
Gastineau won 011 team-work and
superior weight, although the Island
lads fought a very hard game and
were several times close upon the
White and Maroon goal. The Alas
ka-G.astineaus outweighed the Island
boys about 5 pounds to the man. on the
average. This superior weight made
a stone wall of Gastineau's line which
the Treadwell team were unable to
penetrate for any considerable yard
The Juneau boys were the first to
arrive on the field, reaching the grid
iron at 2 p. m. Treadwell. arriving
a few minutes later. I'race was in

Treadwell again took possession of
the ball. Right halfback Mauseth at
tempted to kick out from behind the
goal, but the ball hit the goal post and
rebounded into the channel. Left
halfback Perkins then thought the
time was propitious for a bath, plunged
into tile bay and recovered the ball
for a 'ouch down. Thomson kicked
the goal.? score, 7.
During the rest of the first quarter
there was much brilliant playing the
ball surging back and tort.h in the cen

danger, would punt out. Treadwell

their favor, while the wind carried

the ball on Treadwell's 30-yard line.
The second quarter opened with
Juneau's unsuccessful attempts at
going through Treadwell's line.. It
was then that Quarterback Jameson
sent Perkins around the Islander's i
left end. Perkins' interference was
perfect and with the aid of Quarter
back Jameson, ran the 30 yards for
touchdown number two. Thomson
kicked the goal, score 7, total 14 to 0.
Gastineau was penalized numerous
times for offside playing. At the close
of the first half Treadwell tried time
and again to run Gastineau's ends, but
unable to get past Healy and Postle,

PIONEER OF NOME

("apt. A. K. Ludlow, pioneer whaler
anil prospector, who is now in Ju
neau enroute to the Pioneers' Home
at Sitka, has spent 43 summers of his
life in the North, 28 of which were
aboard ship following the calling of
catching polar whale. For the lat
ler 15 years, however, he has been
prospecting on Seward peninsula.
Speaking of Louis Lane and his
schooner Polar Bear, Capt. Ludlow
said: "I notice Louis has gone into
Walker, A. L. Spaeth, A. W. Schla
which marks the boundary between
Alaska and Canada. He has certain
ly picked out a good place to winter.
Yes. 1 was there in 1875. We were

it "The .Mudhole" on account of the
shallow water in Camden bay and be
cause it was full of polar whales. It
reminded us of a mudhole full of eels.
There were 16 ships in the fleet of
1 >75 and we all got all we could han
dle. Our ships tilled up in a few days
at Camden taking the whales as fast
us they could be cut up, and squared
a way for home. The other twelve
filit-d up just about as quickly at He
turn Reef, about 25 miles west of
Camden Hay and they squared away
for home also. Those were good days.
"This Return Reef, running out from
the coast forms a wicked trap for the
unwary. At certain seasons or most
any time for that matter the ice pack
may come down upon you and if you
are close in and on the east side of
the reef you're, caught, that's all, and
there's no telling when you'll get out.
"in 1824 Sir John Franklin, who had
lift his ships farther east reached Re-;
turn Point in small boats and after
camping there for a time returned to
his ship. It is from this circumstance
that the point gets its name. If Sir
John had continued 140 miles farther
west he would have discovered the
long sought Northwest Passage, and
have reached the Pacific.
"Afterward I was in Nome when
Capt. Roal Amundsen came through
with the little (Jjoa and we gave him
a royal reception.

that the steamship Curacao, now par

HAVE EINE HOME
? o-o ?
The new service buildings for the
Alaska-Gastineau company's Perse
verance mine crews and administra
tion are practically completed
and are now being put to use in part.
By the end of this week or early next '
week all of them will be occupied.
With these new buildings a working j
force of 500 can be very comfortably
cared for. The structures just com
pleted consist of the Main building
or boarding house, the staff house, aud
a new bunk house.
The main building is in the form
of a letter "T," the main structure be
ing 40x150 with a wing setting off
50x70. It is two stories and basement.
The first floor contains the large din
ing room, seating a crew of 500, a
small dining room for the staff, seat
ing 40; kitchen with its cold stor
age plant and other adjuncts. The sec
ond floor contains a large club room,
reading room, general offices and stor?
rooms. The bowling alley is in the
The club room is provided with bil
liard and pool tables which are now be- ;
ing set up, and the reading room is
large and comfortable. The dining
room occupies the entire first floor of
the main structure, while the kitchen
is in the center wing and the service
to the dining room radiates from it.
The kitchen is worthy of notice, it
has been modernized right up to the
minute. A fine bakery is a part of it,
a cold storage plant is advantageously
placed and power elevators run direct
to the stores on the floor above. A
high pressure boiler furnishes heat for
cooking purposes, and all kitchen ma
chinery, such as grinders, etc., are
moved by electric motors. There are
also two low pressure boilers in the
basement to furnish heat for all of
the buildings in the group except the
staff which has its own heating plant.
Every arrangement for perfect sani
tation has been carried out.
The new bunk house is 30xl?0 and
has room for 120 men. It, like the
main building, is thoroughly modern.
It is furnished well and made very
comfortable. There are drying rooms,
change rooms and baths. Immediate
ly in front of this building and over
looking the valley the foundations have
been laid for another building just like
it that will be built next spring. The
old boarding house will immediately
ly be remodeled into a bunk house
which, added to the old bunk house,
now in use brings the capacity of the
combined building to 300, making to
tal bunkhouse accommodations at the
present time or as soon as the changes
are made 420. There are now 300 at
The staff house stands out on the
point of the bluff and has a sweeping
view of the valley. It contains 22 bed
rooms and parlors and is made very
comfortable with up-to-date lavatories
and all the adjuncts of a home, except
the kitchen and dining room. The staff
is provided for by a staff dining room
in the main building. This building is j
heated by its own plant, a hot water
Down in the valley several nice cot
tages are being finished for the men

ARMY Of MEN tOR
The erection of a large concrete
product plant in Juneau, mention of
which was made in The Daily Empire
a short time ago, is now fully assured,
official announcement having been giv
en out today by the management of
the Concrete Products Manufacturing
company, under which name the con

city. The company will soon begin
the erection of its plant, which when
completed will employ an army of
men. The machinery and material
for the new enterprise has arrived and
it is expected that the work of con
struction will begin at once.
Speaking of the enterprise, the
management says: "The new company
will manufacture all kinds of building
units, out of concrete, such as build
ing blocks for walls, bricks, chimney
blocks, pilings for foundations, sanitary
sewer pipe, all sizes, together with an
endless variety of ornamental products
for porches, and garden furniture.
"It is also the intention to build
concrete scows for the transportation
of the raw material., as well as the

"Steam curing is the most essen
tial point, particularly in this North

curing of the products, and besides it
enhances the value over the old meth
od of curing immensely.

ern plant, equipped with the latest im
proved labor-saving appliances."

SEATTLE, Nov. 15. ? Puget Sound
mariners are much interested in the
announcement that the Canadian gov

"dead" section alotfg the British Co
lumbia coast by ordering the construc
tion of a new wireless station on Chat- ,
ham Point, which lies almost half way
between Cape Lazo and Alert bay, and
ultimately connect with Prince Rupert,
from which place Ketchikan and
Northern points may be reached.
With the establishment of the sta- j
tion steamships plying up and down
the British Columbia coast will never
be out of touch with the wireless sta
tions between Victoria and Prince Ru
pert. The radio-telegraph department,
it is said, is now considering the pro
posal to build the new Chatham Point
Owing to the exceptionally high hills
which rise almost perpendicularly from
the tortuous channel between Cape
Lazo and Alert Bay it is impossible
for these two stations to communicate
at any time. When the coastwise
steamships are in this "dead" stretch
they cannot dispatch or receive any
messages. The station of Chatham
Point would do away with this non
communicative section, and vessels
equipped with wireless would no soon
er slip out of the radius of one sta
tion than they would be within the
range of the next wireless tower.
Although the station which, accord
ing to reports, is to be Buildt at Lan
gara Island off the northwest corner
of the Queen Charlotte Islands, may
be built by the Dominion government,
it is not certain that the lofty mast will
not be raised there for some time at
any rate. When transpacific steam
ships are running into Prince Rupert
the tower will be needed there, but it
will not be required for some time yet.
