GEN. DAVIDSON
HAS EINE OFFICES
Charles E. Davidson. Surveyor Gen
eral and ex-offlclo Secretary of the
Territory of Alaska, Is established
with his entire office force in their
handsomo new quarters in the big
concrete Goldstein Block this morn
ing. They commenced moving from
the old offices Saturday morning and
worked all day yesterday. The new
offices are probably the finest In all
Alaska. They occupy positions along
the south and west side of the top
floor of the tall building and have
commanding views of the town and
harbor.
| The suite contains five offices all
told and two large supply closets and
a lavatory. The first office encoun
tered at the head of the stairs and
near the elevator Is the offltJ1 of Sec
retary of the Territory, which ,'s con
j nected with the private office of the
Surveyor General. Next to the Sur
veyor General's private office is the
main office of the Surveyor General.
I This office Is In the corner of the
building and contains a fire and bur
glar proof vault. It is also connected
with Mr. Davidson's private office.
Immediately adjoining on the west
side Is the office of the chief drafts
man, adjoining it the main drafting
room, the area of which is greater by
far than any of the others. The sup
ply closets are conveniently located
adjacent to tho drafting rooms.
The elevator Is not yet in opera
tion for the carrying of passengers
and will probably not be used for that
purpose for several days on account
of the work that Is still in progress on
the building below the top floor, but
the stairs have been placed in condi
tion so that tho general public may
use this mode of reaching the upper
most floor.

JUNEAU TO HAVE
SERVICE STATION
The TJ. S. forestry service with
headquarters for Alaska in Ketchikan,
has determined to establish a perm
anent station in Juneau. A site has
been chosen and the contract let" for
the erection of a dock and float for
the forestry boats on a strip of water
front between the Alaska Juneau com
pany's dock and powder house. Other
buildings will be erected later."
W. 0. Weigle, chief of the service,
who is staying at the Hotel Cain, said
last* night that a man would be sta
tioned here at once to take care of
the needs of this end of the district
temporarily.
Beginning with next spring an office
will be maintainor here permanent
ly. The growing lumber Industry in
this section andvthe fact that the
U. S. land office is located here are
given as reasons for establishing the
new station.
John Sailes, who was awarded the
contract for erecting the dock and float
for the forestry service, has already
secured the piling and will begin the
work of driving them tomorrow.
ENGINEER MINE IS
PROVING VERY RICH
The famous Engineer group of
claims, of Atlln, owned and operated
by Capt. James Alexander, is proving
one of the richest mines in the north,
if not on the continent. Although
working on a small scale, a force of
but fifteen men being employed and
only a two-stamp mill, an average of
more than three pounds of gold Is be
ing milled ddily. says the Whitehorse
Star. The first shipment of gold to
the outside was made a few days ago
when fifty pounds, the result of fifteen
and a half days work, constituted the
consignment.
Sufficient development work on the
Engineer property has been dono to
justify the assertion that it is a gigan
tic proposition. The ledge Is eight
feet in width and increases in richness
as far down as a shaft has been sunk,
120 feet. The ledge has also been ,
tapped at a depth of 400 feet. How (
much deeper the ledge extends is un
known. but there is already enough
ore blocked out to produce millions
of dollars worth of gold.
Although the property pays nicely (
on the small basis on which it is being
operated. Captain Alexander contem- ,
plates installing additional machinery
and increasing mining facilities by an- (
other year.
