I Latest Novelties in Tobacco Jars and Pipe Racks at Burford's THE ORPHEUM GETS GREATEST EILM Starting Thursday the Orpheum Theatre will exhibit what is conceded to be the peer of all feature ill m pro ductions. Homer's Odyssey presages a new era in tllui making. It thrills und staggers imagination and the most remarkable of all is the fact of getting giant's lone eye with It. They thou escape by binding each other under bheep belonging to the giunt. After the voyagers are safely in their boat they throw back taunts to the enraged giant, who in a fit of extreme anger breaks off the top of a mountain and such wonderful, living, breathing, sen-| sationul realism into moving pictures.; The history of the great work has been handed down from father to son for i the last 5,000 years and it is no doubt quite familiar to the majority of Ju neau people. The film depicts in a, most vivid manner how Ulysses and his companions after falling into the j hands of the mamoth cave dwelling giant Cyclopes, light the sharp end of a tree by the fire and put out the I luirls at the ship, just missing it. Continuing the little band of Ulysses encounter many strange adventures, and it sets one wondering how it is possible to photograph such enorm ities. The production is in three reels of three thousand feet of gorgeously tint ed colored film and will surely be a big surprise to the picture goers who see it. The regular show will be run in addition to this special. SCENE FROM HOMER'S ODVSSEVAT ORPHBUM THEATRE TOMOR ROW NIGHT WRANGELL BOOSTS STICKINE ROUTE The Wrangell Chamber of Com merce has issued a pamphlet setting forth the advantages of the Wrangell Stikine route to the new gold diggings, which they call the "Nahlin Placer Strike," but which hjis been variously described as the "Teslin." Jennings river," or "Silver Creek" districts by others. The Wrangell business men represent that the distance for the overland trip, from Telegraph creek, on the Stikine, to be 115 miles. The circular, in part, reads: "In vew of the conflicting reports in circulation in regard to the extent and ; exact location of the recent placer gold discovery northeast of Wrangell i in British Columbia, the Wrangell Chamber of Commerce feel it due to themselves and the public to make a statement pertaining to the special advantages of the route to the new strike via Wrangell and Telegraph creek( over all other routes recom mended from other sources. The Wrangell Chamber of Commerce is not. at this early date, in a position to con Arm or deny the discovery of gold in paying quantities. None of the parties who have staked claims appear to have come out as yet, ex cept the Indian. Skookum Jim, who is understood, on good authority, to have one claim recorded on each of the three new creeks discovered. Location and Trails "The Chamber of Commerce is, how ever. reliably informed that 305 claims have been recorded on four new creeks, including 107 claims on Sil ver creek. Silver creek and the three other creeks mentioned are now defi nitely known to be on the headwaters of Teslin River, flowing out of Level Mountain just across a low divide from the Nahlin river, and about 25 miles east of the Telegraph creek-Teslin Lake pack trail, at the point where the trail crosses the Nahlin river. The Teslin trail runs between Telegraph creek and Teslin Lake and is under stood to have cost the Canadian gov ernment $125,000, to build, in 1898. The trail is kept in good repair from Telegraph creek to Nahlin Station, a distance of 90 miles, being used every year by Telegraph creek pack trains freighting supplies for the Canadian government telegraph stations. Sup plies for the telegraph stations be ween Nahlin and Atlin are also packed from Telegraph creek to Nakina river, which is about 60 miles from Atlin and 150 miles from Telegraph creek. Big game Hunters who outfit at Telegraph creek go in every year to the Nahlin country after caribou. Moose and mountain sheep in the immediate vi cinity of the new strike. The Tele graph creek Indians own the native hunting rights there and many of them have placer claims staked. It can thus be seen that the strike is in a country tributary to Telegraph creek, from which it is a distance about 115 miles. "The freight rates from Wrangell to Telegraph creek are from two to two and one-half cents per pound. The Hudson's Bay Company have a river steamer with a freight capacity of 200 tons running on the Stikine between Wrangell and Telegraph creek from about May 20th to September 1st. There are also several power boats available carrying passengers and freight from May 10th to October 15th. INGCRSOLL HAS EIGHT-HOUR BILL Representative Charles E. Inger : oil. of Ketchikan, has introduced an eight-hour bill in the House that is designed to meet the objections that have been raised to the Gaffney-Ro den bill. It limits its scope to quartz mining, and provides for eight hours of actual work in the mine, requiring the laborer to go to and return from work and his meals on his own time. Col. Ingersoll attempted to get his bill passed the committee on labor, apiial and immigration, which has the Roden-Gaffney labor bill under con sideration. Representative Thomas Gaffney is chairman of this committee and he is committeed to his own bill. Col. Ingersoll moved, yesterday, to! have his bill referred to the committee on mining and manufactures. Mr. Gaff ney was not In at the time the motion was made, but others caught the pur- j port of the motion, and began a mild > form of filibuster until the arrival of Mr. Gaffney. The latter succeeded in getting the bill to his committee. The committee on labor, capital and immigration was instructed to report upon all eight-hour bills that have been referred to it at the same time. ALASKAN MAKES FORTUNE IN ENGLAND Nat Lyons, formerly an Alaskan printer and prospector, turned his Northern exeprience into profit to him self in an unusual manner. He was visiting last year at his old home, St. Ives Bay, Cornwall, England. His con nection with the stream tin deposits of Seward peninsula enabled him to recognize the tin the seasands of his native land. Assays disclosed that the sand carried 15 pounds of tin to the square yard, and ? as the tin is worth 40 cents a pound it made the sand worth $6 to the yard. Lyons organized a company that ac quired 1,200,000 square yards of the Cornwall sands, and the $500,000 ne cessary to hold and develop it was quickly secured. Cornwall has been producing tin for many centuries, but the sands along this particular shore were never believed to be v tuable until the prac ticed eye of the Alaskan discerned its riches. Lyons' last residence in Alaska was at Iditarod, where he was employed on the Jditarod Pioneer. FIRST BANKING BILL BEFORE LEGISLATURE The first banking bill to make its appearance in the Legislature has been introduced by Representative Milo Kelly, of Knik. It is understood that Representative W. T. Burns, of Fairbanks, has a mining bill in course of preparation, but so far it has not been given to the public. Among the salient features of Mr. Kelly's bill are the following: It makes the Secretary of the Ter ritory ox-ofllcio Bank Examiner; re quires a minimum of $25,000 paid up capital; not less than five incorpora tors; every director to be a bona fide stockholder; no money shall be loaned to any director or other officer, nor Bhnll an overdraft be permitted them; makes it unlawful for any bank to pur-1 chase the capital stock in whole or part of any other bank, except where it is made necessary in order to get security or satisfaction of a debt prev iously contracted with the bank; each bank is assessed $100 to bear the ex pense of maintaining a bank examiner; all banks must report to the bank ex aminer at least three timeB a year, , SPECIAL THIS WEEK JUST RECEIVED?A shipment of fancy apples. $1.25 per box?GOLD STEIN'S Lf. j"i I 1 I I 1 I 1 I 1 I M'-H-H H I I 1 M-l The 'Model'1 :: I1 This Is a f ? ? y RESTAURANT J II J T I ? ? *r ;; Fred Vinton Tom McMullen j; ?gBMII?WIBH H I Fire-Proof Buildings Cheap as Wooden Structures Plans and specifications for reinforced concrete buildings and piles, and cement houses, prepared by C.
