ALASKA SUPPLY CO., juneau j 1 Sparks from Douglas DOUGLAS. March 18.?Last night one of the largest crowds that ever packed the Treadwell Club witnessed the smoker given by the Treadwell Firemen. By 8 o'clock the hall was nearly full, although the smoker was supposed to start at 8 o'clock. It was nearly 9 before the tlrst event was pulled off. There was u wrestling match between Hayes, of Treadwell, and Aalto. of Douglas, in which Hayes took two fulls straight from Aalto. Wasco pinned Smith's shoulders to the mat twice in succession in the b heavyweight wrestling match. There I were no decisions given in the boxing I matches. The Douglas dairy has a norse anu wagon to do its delivering. A large crowd was at the opening of the sale of Easter bonnets at P. H. Fox's yesterday.

ALASKA-IRELAND HOME RULE SMOKER The Alaska - Ireland Home-Rule smoker, given by the Treadwell lire department at the Treadwell Club last night, to celebrate the day of Ire land's patron saint, was certainly one grand success. The firemen of both Douglas and Juneau were invited and , were present in large numbers. Mem bers of the Legislative Assembly had been invited to visit the mines during the day and take in the smoker at night .and they were also present and were still talking about the affair this morning. There was not a dull moment from the start until the last act on the pro gram. Monte Snow, always popular, started things going by singing some old Irish ballads and he was followed by Burke and Casey, two real Irish lads that can tear off an Irish jig in jig style. The Livle Sisters, two little girls, by special request then gave a high land fling to the accompaniment of the ^ bagpipe. The audience went wild and the wee lassies did a horn pipe. A ; man from Nome threw a handfull of ? silver on the stage?another man from ! Fairbanks followed suit, and then the " silver commenced 10 rain on me a 105c. ? ? Bruning's "Long ? Handled Dipper ! that Hung by the Sink" was given in I inimitable style and the audience was * so well pleased that he responded with . a humorous story in rhyme on the day | selected to honor St. Patrick. A splendid string band gave some ? selections and then the first athletic ! number, a lightweight westling match ; between Hays and Aalto, furnished ni ? terest until the last fall. Hays won ' two fafls. This was followed by ? some heavyweights, Smith vs. Wasco, who pulled oft their stunt in record time, Wasco getting both falls. Then there followed seven boxing matches, viz: Solomon vs. Adains, Dermody vs. Ryan, Grundler vs. De Montozon, Johns vs. Harris, Francks ? vs. Penglase, Aalto vs. Kurkus. ? An eight-piece orchestra of consid | erable class played stirring Irish airs ? during all the intermissions.

MATHIS DENTIST Opp. Postoffice, Over Rexall Drug Store DOUGLAS, - - ALASKA NO JURY DUTY TOR WOMEN The prospect of the passage of the woman's suffrage bill has caused the women of Juneau and probably else where in the territory, to wonder whether or not it will make women eli blgle to service on juries. Much of the opposition to woman suffrage bills among women has been caused by a desire not to be compelled to do jury service. The consensus of opinion among lawyers is that the Shoup bill does not make women eligible for ser vice in this capacity. The qualifications for jurors are set forth in the Alaska code separately from the statute fixing the qualifica tions of electors. The Shoup bill does not affect this statute at all. It sim ply extends the elective franchise 10 women and leaves the law with ref erence to the qualification of jurors alone. The law specifies in plain language that a juror must be a "male" citizen. In some of the States in which wom en vote they are also required to serve as jurors when called upon by the State to do so. In others, notably Washington, women called for jury service have a right to claim exemp tion as have lawyers, ministers of tho gospel, men over 60 years of age, etc. Many of them exercise their right to exemption though women are not in frequently seen on juries in that State.

NEW PRESIDENT IS BASEBALL FAN A recent Washington dispatch says that President Wilson probably will take advantage of his Presidential baseball pass when the Washington team opens the American League seas on there Apr. 10 with New York. Pres ident Taft last year pitched the ball into the field for the opening, and Pres ident Wilson this season may do the same. It is not unlikely that the President frequently will be a spectator at the big games, for it is known that he is somewhat of a "fan."
