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

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
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.

neau June 2nd. Judge Royal A. Gun
nison, who had gone to Ketchkan foi
the purpose of having Judge Thomas
it. Lyons set the date, returned toda:
on the Al-Ki. It was agreed at Ketchi
kan to let the hearing over setting th<
dates go until June 2.
Job Printing at The Empire Office
The City of Seattle with Major and
Mrs. J. F. A. Strong on hoard sailed
from Ketchikan this morning and will
) be due at Gastineau channel at noon
tomorrow. Cablegrams from Ketchi
kan said that the City of Seattle would
stop at Juueau before going to the isl
and. However, as all the plans for
the reception of the new Governor of
Alaska and Mrs. Strong contemplate
that there will be a reception on the
island first, both Major Strong and the
captain of the steamship have been
wired informing them of the condi
tion and it is believed that the change
will be made.
The reception committee have de
cided that the people of Juneau will
j go over to Douglas on a special ferry
when the City of Seattle comes tomor
row noon, taking the Juueau brass
band along. They will then bring Ma
jor and Mrs. Strong over to Juneau.
Plans for the reception to be held in
Juneau Wednesday night will be de
cided definitely tonight. T. J. Mar
tin. president of Pioneers of Alaska,
cabled Major Strong at Wrangell, ask
ing him to meet with them tomorrow
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.

Notes and Jolts.
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.

Sails for Juneau,
SEATTLE, May ID.?Judge UobL
W. Jennings, the new United States

plete the term of the District Court at I
that place. Mr. Kustgard said there
were still four minor cases to try at

There was an excellent attendance
yesterday both morning and evening
at the church of the Nativity, to hear
the Rev. Father Donnelly begin his [
series of lectures to Catholics and j
non-Cathloics. High Mass was sung |
at 10:30 by the Rev. Father Brown. <
The singing of the choir was of a very i
high order. The subject of the open-!
ing lecture was "Indifference to Re-;
ligion." The preacher drew a graph
ic picture of the blind man of Jericho
being healed by Jesus and contrasted
the eagerness of this man for his
sight with the apathy and indifference
of so many Christians who are dark
ened by spiritual blindness. In the
evening the great "Loss of the Age"
was discussed. It was described as
the loss of the "Sense of Sin." A
very powerful sermon filled with ar
gument and scriptural illustration
brought this truth clearly home to
the hearers. Father Donnelly speaks
with a pleasing facility and his dra

dence. The congregational hymn
singing was bright and inspiriting.

will be given.
