Owing to Its steep site, there will be no hoisting11 in the new mill and the cost of milling will be materially reduced because of this condition. A million feet of lumber Is being dls-1 charged at the mill dock, for use in construction work in the mine and mill, and in the auxiliary departments, I The dock is to be greatly enlarged but as. the piling ncd silis were put 1 in pface several months ago the work of decking will not require any great length of time. According to J. H. Mackenzie, the pilot mill will be used as a base for the mixing of concrete for the foun dations of the new mill. Charles G. Bruff. construction engineer, is work ing on the plans of the mill, which have been slightly revised to meet several changes made since Mr. Bruit and Mr. Mackenzie arrived in Juneau. Grading for the power plant and oil storage tanks is well under way. The oil tank will have a capacity of 55. 000 barrels and will be located not far from the power plant. The lat ter will consist of two 5.000-kIlowatt turbo generators, one of which will be a reserve. MRS. CAMPEN'S FATHER STRICKEN LAST NIGHT \V. F.

Two or three clues have been run down by the officers but all havo proved fruitless. Mrs. Christie has placed the note, slipped under door late Saturday night, in the hands of the marshal's office and it is thought the note may be the means of unrav eling the myster. Mrs. Christie be lieves that her husband is still alive but is nervous and fears that the per sons who abducted her husband may do her bodily harm. Mr. Christie has been known to a number of Douglas people practical ly all his life, having come from the same town in Scotland, and they state that he has always been known as a mar who would never harm any one and was always quiet and unassuming Mrs. Christie, who formerly was Mrs C.

When asked how the slit got in the ? J curtain he stated that his mother j had cut it there with a knife just be- i fore she left the house with the In- t ; jured man and that after she had < cut a little slit she said, "Oh, what's ! ' the use." and put the knife down. i On cross examination he answered | ; affirmatively a question put by Mr. j Cheney in which the defendant's > ' counsel had asked if Mrs. Campen had not cut the slit while the curtain was still burning and then said, "Oh, what's the use?" On further cross examination the , child admitted that he had been con- , tinuously with his father ever since ( he was brought to Juneau about a week after the shooting occurred, and ? that he had talked with his mother > but twice during that time, and then \ only when someone was with him. He 1 stated that he has been Instructed by ; hiR father to keep away from his mother, and admitted that he and his father had discussed the affair ( practically every time they talked to-' \ gether.

On cross examination Mr. Cheney brought out that the pistol which Mrs. Campen used had been lying In a , suitcase on top of a- sewing machine ? at tho end of the bed, and thus sup i ported his testimony made to tho i Jury in the preliminary statement of the case, to the effect that in order to , get hold of the pistol Mrs. Campen . was obliged to step around the cor . ner made by the curtain shielding the bed, and that as Campen came to : ward her tho corner of the curtain ? came between them and .extended far enough out to be directly in front of ? the right half of her body, and con i sequerttly In the way of the right hand ? in which she held the pisjol as she s fired.
