Sparks From
Douglas
DOUGLAS, Dec. 2.? Tho Dolphin
went South at noon today.
The funeral of Francis Forrest
Richards, who died In Seattle last
Monday, was held yesterday at 2 p.
m., from St. Luke's Episcopal church.
A large number of friends attended.
The services were conducted by Rev.
G. Retilson, of Juneau.
Miss Cassle King is suffering from
neuralgia.
Mrs. Wm. Stubbins and Miss Doris
Oliver will be home tomorrow, on the
Spokane, after a trip of several weeks
in the Sound cities.
All schools have closed in Doug
las and Treadwell, on account of the
scarlet fever epidemic. The schools
will probably be closed until after the
holidays.
The show at the Treadwell Club,
which was postponed las' Saturday
night, owing to the death of Francis
Richards, will take place this evo
ning; children under sixteen years of
age, will not be allowed at any of
the show houses, skating rinks, or
any public gathering until the pres
ent scare of scarlet fever abates.
Miss Lillian Llljestrand is return
ing on the Spokane tomorrow.
This is a good time for the young
sters to save their money for Christ
mas since they can't spend it for pub
lic amusements.
The following took passage on the
Dolphin: Sam Vovich, Henry Monroe,
Nick L. Lee, T. Tahallashl, Paul
Coster. S. Vakovich, R. Plgonovlch,
S. Dahovashi, Nick Chorovlch.
N. G. Neville will move into the
house formerly occupied by M. G.
Rogers and family. Mr. and Mrs.
Neville have been living In the Con
gregational parsonage for tho last
year.
Nick S. Lee, a Treadwell employee
for several years, left for the Sound
on the steamer Dolphin.
The City Council held a special
meeting yesterday to determine what
action should be taken to prevent the
spread of scarlet fever. From their
investigation it is apparent that the
blame for the spread of this epidem
ic can be laid to Dr. Dr. Weyerhorst,
who. it Is alleged, did not report his
cases to the City Council as he
should have done and as all the other
physicians have done, and it Is up
to the council to see that all men,
practitioners and others, comply with
the law.
ANOTHER BIG
MINING DEAL
The Jersey City group of claims on
Douglas island were on last Satur
day bonded to \V. G. Stegman. of Ju
neau, representing Eastern capitalists.
Negotiations for the transfer of this
property have been under way for
the past month. During that time
the property was thoroughly exam
ined with very satisfactory results.
Few people outside of Douglas isl
and know of the Jersey City group,
as the owners have quietly und pa- ;
tiently. but optimistically performed
their assessment work for the past
seventeen years with a firm and abid- ;
ing faith that sooner or later they
would not have to seek a purchaser, .
as the merits of the claims would .
bring him their way. That time has
arrived and the Jersey City group
might be said to have passed the
prospect stage. The development
work done on these claims to date i
consists of a shaft eighty feet, a cross i
cut forty feet and a drift twenty-nine i
feet, all in pay ore. i
The ore body differs somewhat from ;
Treadwell though running parallel to '
that great deposit, and being only
one-half mile distant. The forma- j
tion is eaxctly the same as Tread- ]
well, being a contact ledge between I
the slate and greenstone, but the Jer- j
soy City carries its greatest valueB* I
in free gold. Some of the richest I
specimens ever found in Alaska i
quartz were taken out of the drift I
last summer.
The Jersey City group was locat- 1
ed in 1896 by James Mitchell, Joe I
McKone and "Cordwood Jim." The 1
present owners are M. J. O'Connor i
and James Mitchell, of Douglas; S. 1
Zenger and Wm. Meyer, of Juneau. i
According to the terms of the bond i
active development work must begin '
on May 1, and the day is not far dis- I
tant when Douglas Island will have <
another producing mine.
The papers transferring the proper- i
ty were signed Saturday and the i
deed is held in escrow by the First 1
National ban!. of Juneau, to be de- i
livered to its rightful owners on No
vember 30, 1913. 1
? \
TEMPORARILY CLOSED. i
1
There will be no entertainment of
any kind at the Treadwell Club until
further notice. This action is taken 1
on account of the scarlet fever epi- I
domic now prevalent. 1
