CLERK PLEADS FOR
SIX O'CLOCK CLOSING
DOUGLAS. March 27, To the Editor:
An agreement is being circulated
among the business men of this town
for signatures pledging them to close
their stores at 6 p. m., except on the
16th and 17th days of each month and
on Saturday evenings.
It seems to me that the agreement
should be signed. The business men
of this town ought to be able to do
what has been done in other towns of
more and less population.
The indications are that an eight
l hour day will go into effect at an early
date. That will make it particularly
easy for everyone to do his shopping
before 6 o'clock.
Six o'clock closing will not only ben
efit the clerks that now stay in the
stores 13 and 14 hours a day. but it
will benefit the proprietors. With it
in effect they would have a chance
to show people that they are more than
mere machines. How many business
men in Douglas attend the shows, fire
meetings, lodge meetings or other
meetings such as they might attend
if they had their evenings away from
business?
Proprietors ana cierKH aum- nuuiu
be benefitted if they could give some
of their time to these things.
Six o'clock closing would not only
make better conditions all around, but
it would save the lighting bills 50 per
cent in the winter time and this is
quite an item in many of our mercan
tile establishments.
The people would spend just as
much at the stores. They could easily
do their shopping in regular hours if 1
they knew that the stores would be
closed at a specified time.
This agreement would have gone In
to effect two years ago when the ques
tion was first aggitated if it had not
been that three or four houses would
not sign it. The men that blocked it
think they are good business men, but
I think they are short-sighted rather
than long-headed.
The agreement does not include pool
rooms, saloons, ice cream palors nor
any of the places of amusement It
only includes the clothing, grocery,
hardware and other mercantile estab
lishments that deal in the necessities.
Juneau can close at 6 p. m., why
can't Douglas?

lows' hall Wednesday, April 2, at 8

LEVY'S YUKON I
LAUNCH ARRIVES I
Louis Levy's new launch, Marlnice, II
arrived last night from Petersburg in I
charge of Frank Walter, who will be 11
Its chief navigator on the Yukon river. I
The trip was made from Petersburg in I
13 hours. ' I
The Maurinice was built on San I
Francisco Bay and shipped to Ketchi-Jl
kan. It came from that place to Ju- I
neau under its own power, and will I
proceed to Skagway, from where it I
will be shipned over the White Pass I
and launched again at Whitehorse. It I
is intended for use on the Yukon river, I
ind will replace a smaller launch for- I
raerly used on that river by Mr. Levy I
in connection with his occupation as I
a fur buyer. It is 32 feet in length I
and is provided with highly im- I
proved engines, capable of develop- I
ing a high rate of speed.
Frank Walter, who has charge of I
the Marinince, is a native of Holy I
Cross Mission, Alaska, and for several I
years has been in the employ of Mr. I
Levy.
The Marinice is lying at the sawmill I
dock, and has attracted a great deal I
of attention from local people. *
