VOL II NO 165 JUNEAU, ALASKA, MONDAY, MAY 19, 1913. PRICE TEN CENTS GOV. JOHNSON SIGNS ANTI-ALIEN BILL Gov. Clark Pleased With Indian liquor Traffic Work Gov. Walter E. Clark is pleased with tlie results that have been achieved b> the organized light* that has been made to suppress the liquor traffic among the natives of Alaska. Summarizing this work. Saturday, the Co\? ruor gave out the following state ment : "It is a singular fact that the great success attending the elforts to sup pr? ss the liquor traffic among the na tives during the last two years, re sulting : i many prosecutions in the courts, is responsible for the impres sion in 'lie public mind that this il 1< gal traffic is actually on the increase at the present time. No impression could be farther away from the facts. The illegal liquor traffic is compara ti fly small at present, but a large part of the public apparently believes it is increasing simply because the number of successful prosecutions in court is increasing. "Since July 1. 1911. a new plan of dealing with the illegal liquor traffic among the natives has been carried out by the Governor's office. The work lias been prosecuted so quietly that a great many persons have not even known that the work was being done bj this office. In Southeastern Alaska where the principal work has been carried on. two special agents were employed for a period of a year and a half and one special agent for a period of one year and ten months. During that time, as a result of the J work of these agents, 122 arrests have been made of persons engaged in the illegal traffic in liquor among the natives. Of these, 102 were heard before United States Commissioners. 05 were bound over and 7 were not held to answer: S3 true bills were found by grand juries. 17 not true bills, while in 5 cases no action was taki n by the grand jury. Many more arrests could have been made, but in no case was an arrest made unless (Continued to Page 3.) Captain Carter's Tigers Win In Last Half That was certainly some baseball on i the Casey Shattuck iot yesterday. Tie threat of Charley Carter to make the Tigers take to the water if they lost ami swim baek to town was very effective they kept scratching all the time and although handled pretty rough at times by the Terriers they pulled through score 20 to 19 and two chances left. There was a good crowd in attendance and many of them stayed until the finish although it started to rain at the end of the fourth inning. The Terriers went to bat first: Ben son got transportation; Holt hit to short and was thrown out at first: Whipple swung three times through the ozone; Bayless hit a tiny little tly to short result nil. Zott bunted1 and was safe: McBride struck an at titude but failed to connect with the' ball: Saegers thought Carter had the ::?)-30 trained on him and he swatted the ball so hard that he oroke the bat. it was too hot to handle and he roost ed on second while Zott raced home; Albertson hit a tantalizing slow one and was safe, while Saegers scored on the play; l.oucks struck out and Albertson who had ptrloined third was nipped trying to get home?re sult two runs. Lewis hit safe: WulZen hit to short but Albertson fumbled: Lewis moved to second: Hoot walked and the bases were full: Healey hit for two bags and Lewis and Wulzen scored: .Ma lone was hit by ball: Benson sacri ficed scoring Hoot: Holt struck out and Whipple repeated past perform ance result three runs. Cornell popped to third: (Carter walked toward the 30-30) Cardiner hit safe; Frieman hit safe; Fisher hit for two. Cardiner and Frieman scoring; Zott fouled out: McBride hit safe scoring Fisher, Saegers lined one too hot to handle and was safe, scoring j .McBride; Albertson was hit by ball; j Loucks hit to third and was safe on an error scoring Saegers; Cornell hit that would have been ordinarily safe but Bayless made a sensational catch retiring the side?result five runs. The Terriers failed to do anything in their behalf of the third while the Tigers added four more to their bulg ing account. Something happened iu the fourth. The Terriers fell on to Saegers and when the account was added up they had the magic seven on the board making a total of ten, only one behind. In their half the Tigers came back with three more, making fourteen iu all. The Terriers got one in the sixth and another in the eighth while the Tigers failed to connect until their half of the eighth when they again jumped onto Malone and annexed four more making a to tal of eighteen while the opponents had but thirteen. Then the fireworks were started in the last inning and when the Terriors retired they had an nex* d six runs giving them a lead of 0 ie over the Tigers. The situation was intensely interesting. The first man up was safe at first, the next went down; a past ball allowed the runner to get to second; a hit allowed the runner to score: another safe one and a passed ball allowed the winning run to get in with two chances left.

JUNEAU INDIANS LOSE TO DOUGLAS Douglas put it all o\er the Juneau regulars on the Douglas grounds yes terday afternoon?score t>-2. It all happened in the first three innings. Douglas got one in each half of the first and second and in the third ! hopped onto young Dermody in great; shape. With one in and the bases! full Dermody changed places with Mai loy but it was too late before Malloy was warmed up Ferris' Wildcats had annexed three more. After this Mal loy had them so tame they would eat out of his hand, the hits obtained be ing so scattered that nothing came of them. Young Jeems Chambers had Kadonich's Indians buffaloed from the start and he kept them in that hyp notic state until the sixth inning when inadvertantly a run was slipped over. In the last chance he allowed them to get one more just to keep them from going home discouraged? but he was never in danger. A great crowd was in attendance and there was no lack of in terest in the game. The errors piled up a little higher than lovers of the sport like to note but it was a bad day and the grounds are not in first class con dition. There was complaint about the ferry service not being able to handle the crowd that wanted to attend the game. Following is the line-up of both teams. ?Douglas Juneau? J.

If Tom Kadonich had been attend . ing to business as manager of Ju neau's best instead of "jumping town . lots for placer mining purposes" the > story might have been different. Henry Anderson who played first for Juneau was manager for Lincoln high . school team last year. Kalal, who played first for Douglas . used to be a star with Fort Seward. Malloy got a two-bagger but tried to stretch it into three and was lost Hurlbutt brought in the first score for Juneau, but Hurlbutt has the habit. Chic Harris made the second and ' last score for the losers. Dahl. the premier outfielder landed ? a long fly on Mike O'Connor's roof > and while the Douglas lad couln't ; make the complete circuit on the hit ? he got well around and made the - first score for his team. r Fairchild made a three-base hit in i the sixth but died on third. With three men on bases in the first - of the second Dermody failed to come s through with the necessary. Juneau had three on bases again in the fourth but Shepard could not de i liver the goods.
