THE ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
VOL. 1. NO. 22. JUNEAU, ALASKA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 1912. PRICE TEN CENTS CITY OF ADRIANOPOLE IS BURNING How Halibut Fishermen Lose Half of the Price The business men of Juneau are Retting interested in the agitation started by The Empire for a plan looking to the welfare of local fisher men. Mr. McKanna. of the tirm of Ged des & McKanna. stated this uioruing that losses sustained by the local fish ermen were getting more serious all the time. "We get the returns for many of the fishermen who ship to the Seat tie dealers." he said, "and It is a shame the way that culling system I of those dealers is cutting down the cash returns, which should be ninde to the tishermen. "This morning we got the returns from a late shipment and we find a shriukage of 50 per cent in value has been sustained or at least reported damage to that amount is declared by the Seattle dealers. This means the tishermen get only half the prices of the market quotation." FIRST UNIT, SALMON CREEK, ABOUT READY FOR USE .Many wiseacres shook their heads when it was announced lagt June thai the Perseverance mine would be able to use Salmon creek power this win ter, but developments under Chief Kn gineer Wallenburg and Superintend ent Frick have followed in such rapid succession that today the results sought are practically at hand. The bin flume is entirely finished and the intake built ready to divert the water from the lower dam. The pipe line is all laid and nothing re mains to complete the connection ex cept the building of the penstock which will be accomplished within the next two days.

The power house is finished and all the concrete foundations are built for carrying the heavy uiachin : ery. The large generators are on the ground ready to be set up and the immense pelton wheels are here ready to be sent out. The tranformer station is nearing completion and the big transformers are on the ground ready to be In stalled All of this, however, is but the first unit in the great power project of the Alaska-tiastineau Company un der the direction of General Manager B. L. Thane. The working force will keep right on until all the plans have been carried out in their entirety. THE STEAMER GEORGIA HAS VERY PINE RECORD When the steamer Georgia tied up at her regular berth yesterday morn ing she had completed one thousand voyages over her present run which consists of round trips between Sitka and Skagwav with Juneau in the cen ter. The distance covered in this re markable run totals up 350.000 miles which would be equal to circumnavi gating the globe 16 times. In the many years she has sailed over the tranquil summer seas of this inland water course, the staunch lit tle vessel has conveyed nearly all of the local excursion parties to and from either of the terminal points. All of the great sporting tourneys of both Skagwav and Juneau have al ways depended on the little ship and never an evil mishap resulted. But the path of the Georgia was not always strewn with sunshine? the winter solstice always brought the dread taku and many interesting tales could be told of the part she has played in the great drama of life wherein mountainous seas, and bat tling winds played opposite?wherein rescued shipwrecked seafarers made fitting climax to such worthy acting. For th<- past eight years Captain Kd Thornton has stood at his post guiding the little craft through all the trials and vicissitudes to which a true seaman becomes inured. In passing, a few of the things out of the ordinary may be recounted: She picked up the wrecked crew of the Marichan after they came to! disaster and deserted the ship at False bay. The Georgia was on the way to Sitka when Captain Thornton caught a glimpse through the drift-' ing snow, of a camp fire on the beach. He paused to investigate and found ? NO PAPER TOMORROW. In accordance with an established custom there will be no issue of The Daily Umpire tomorrow, so as to give the force an opportunity to share in Thanksgiving Day and Its festivities.

They had escaped with nothing but matches, coal oil. some flour and a few bot ties of beer. They were taken aboard and carried to Sitka and then back to | Juneau. .More recently the Georgia rescued the people from the Yucatan when she was wrecked in Cross sound. Still later the Georgia again was summon ed to the relief of the Princess May when she struck on Sentinel island reef. The most thrilling experience, how ever, happened in Upper Lynn Canal some distance this side of Skagway. A bitter cold wind swept over Chil coot and tore down the canal increas ing in velocity till it was a raging gale. All night the little ship kept bucking both wind and wave making less than two miles each hour. All the while the spray dashed over her house forming a mountain of ice as it congealed in the frigid temperature. Before reaching the harbor of Skag way the vessel was so top heavy that she was well nigh unmanageable, but on the morning of Dec. 9. 1909, was finally docked at the Northern termin al. Axes were procured as soon as the ship was tied up and Purser Jack Davies was chopped out of his room. The boat presented a most remark able appearance. Ice extended out ward from her stern a distance of three feet. The shrouds were one solid column of ice as thick as a man's body and the whole deck and house wore the cold armor in like proportion. It took two days with a stream of hot water to get her back in traveling trim. THE HUMBOLDT'S OUTGOING PASSENGER LIST.
