VOL II. NO. 159. JUNEAU, ALASKA, MONDAY, MAY 12. 1913. PRICE TEN CENTS STRONG EXPECTS GOOD LEGISLATION Governor Clark Extends Quarantine to Treadwell Today Gov. Walter K. Clark issued1 a quarantine order that provides that children under the ago of 16 years are not permitted to enter or leave Tread well until further notice. The order is similar in all respects to the order is sued forbidding children to enter or leave Douglas. M. J. O'Connor. May or of Douglas, has made an order, act ing in accord with the order of the Governor, forbidding the children of Douglas to gather in public places, aud Tread well has made an order that chil dren must not go from Treadwell to Douglas or from Douglas to Tread well. The cause for the establishment of quarantine is the existence of an ep idemic of scarlet fever on the Island. The Governor's order, issued Sat- i urdav. placing a quarantine on Doug las after reciting the Governor's au- t thority to act as commissioner of I health, is as follows: ?< In view of the presence of several ] case# of scarlet fever iu the incor porated town of Douglas. Alaska, a quarantine is hereby declared to the i extent and upon the conditions named, as follows: All children under the age of sixteen years are forbidedn to enter the town! of Douglas or to leave the town of Douglas for the purpose of visiting any other town or settlement. All parents, guardians, or other per sons having such children in their charge are held responsible for their compliance with this quarantine or der: the said order to be and remain in force until further notice. The public health olllcer of the town of Douglas will, under the provisions of this act referred to, remain in charge of the local quarantine regu lations of the town of Douglas, and in the work of carrying out these regu lations he will have the support of the commissioner of health of the Ter ritory. & Juneau Trims Boys Prom Across Channel An immense crowd was out yester day to watch the opening game of the season between the regular teams of Castineau channel towns. There was a great tournout of rooters and fair fans from the Douglas Island communi ties and intense interest was manifest ed from the start to tir.ish. Juneau. 8; Tread well. 7; tells the last chapter, but no one would have guessed it that way. Tom Radonich's braves had horseshoes hanging all over them selves but if L. Chambers had come through with the necessary bingle on the last chance while his little brother James was roosting on sec ond the game might tave been going yet. Hut the "ifs" make baseball un certain and interesting. The weather petulant at the start but after a few splashes of rain duri ig the first in ning sunshine prevailed. The story follows: Treadwell went to bat first with their premier fielder Dahl at bat who hit safe: t'oughlin popped out to Malloy: Kertis hit a slow grounder, was safe, stole second while Dahl moved to third: J. Chambers hit a slow one to first which l.oucks stepped right in front of the runner; instead of tagging his man first he at tempted to head off Dahl at the plate and lost both: Linscoi: laid one down to first just like Chambers had done and the previous play was repeated Kertis scoring: L. Chambers flew out to left field: Raines next up and made a hit that looked like a home run but Allen made a sensational one hand catch saving two runs. C. Harris led oft' for Juneau and walked: Zott laid down a safe one movirg Harris; Hurl butt had a good eye and walked: Mal loy hit a hot one that bounded over third. Harris and Zott scoring; Gray fanned the atmosphere three times and retired: \V. Harris hit to short and was thrown out at first score 2 and 2. Juneau never got a man across the pan after this until the seventh when Spehard and I.oucks scored. Douglas annexed a run in the third and two more in the fifth. It looked to be their game until Malloy in the eighth, after Hurlbut had hil safe, sent the ball away out amongst the spruce trees and chased Hur butt across the plate. A combination of hits and errors allowed two more runs which were enough to win. The Treadwell lads al most caused heart failure for Radon ich in their half of the ninth when Dahl lead off with a triple and scored on Coughlin's hit that followed. Ker tis struck out but Jimmy Chambers ! cauie through with a bingle scoring Coughlin. It looked dangerous and was getting exciting. But Linscott and L. Chambers failed to help out and the game ended. The line-up ot' the teams follows. ?Treadwell Juneau? Uockafeller p Malloy Raines c W. Harris Kertis lb Loucks Linscott lib Gray J. Chambers 3b C.

He has a splendid line-up all the way through and the team shows class in team work. Captain .Mauseth knows how to play a team. The Juneau team needs a liberal j education in team work and also some ' practice if they hope to break even with that bunch of wildcats across the channel. Young Dahl is certainly some class as a tielder. He reminds one of Lee Magee. a Seattle first baseman, now with St. Louis, who used to climb the bleacher fence and pull them down. ?He is also some swatter. Mauseth plays short like a veteran and handled everything coming his way faultlessly. The Chambers brothers are to Tread well what the Harris brothers are to Juneau?a good bit of sound baseball timber. Dolly Gray can make a lot of noise 'out on second. Allen's sensational catch in the first was only equalled by Dahl's work in the same garden. Young Hurlbutt, barring a wild throw, played a faultless game and ate up everything that came his way. He is a young disciple of Honus Wagner ! when it comes to stick work. Malloy pitched a good steady game and made the sensational hit of the day?a home run. Rockafeller, although he walked sev eral, kept the hits down and was not in danger until the 7th when Malloy ; fell on him and lost the ball. Considering the rough condition of the grounds it was an excellent game ij for the first game of the season.
