Time was passing. The men began to bring in their women and children. The mining camp became a town. The big mines with their nozzles and sluices took over, and the pick and shovel miners, working for themselves, became fewer and fewer as more and more men went to work in the big mines. Eventually the Treadwell mine employed hundreds of men in its big, open Glory Hole. It was said in Juneau that every day a man died in the mines.


In that first ten years schools and churches were built.
