ONLY ONE GAME Of BALL TOMORROW Tomorrow afternoon Tom Radon ich's Indians, otherwise the Juneau j accredited baseball team, will play with the Douglas-Treadwell regulars known locally as the Wildcats. For a time it looked as if .Mr. Radonich's Indians would all disappear like the famous little Indians of nursery rhyme but that contingency has been obviat ed. The line-up of the two teams could not be obtained at a late hour this af ternoon. but it probable that there will be little change. It is known, how ever. that Zott will play with the In- j dianes. (lame will be called at 2:30. Morning Game Off. It is all off with Charley Quacken bush's "Squareheads."?he had so many of Tom Radonich's Indians on; the pay roll of the Juneau Construc tion Company that a protest strong enough to shake Mount Juneau went1 up.

His Indians must' be good Indians and play only when and where he gave instructions?Tom had his way. so the morning game scheduled with the C. *W. Young Ti gers is off and Charley Carter is not sorry. As a consequence everybody can sleep late Sunday morning and the maroon suits can be hung on the line. A Cheeky Outfit. C. F.

JOSEPH KAELIN Juneau, Alaska, May 23, 1913?5-23-1 BEN HUR RECITAL DECIDED SUCCESS The recital of Ben Hur at Elks' hall last night was an unqualified success. Mrs. J. C. McBrlde captivated the large audience by her splendid work. Gen. Lew Wallace's great masterpiece suits her personality and offers excep tional chances for bringing out the dramatic ability which she possesses in a remarkable degree. In her con ception of the characters she de-' scribed, she displays keen percep tion, and in the emotional parts her work was grand. She reviewed the great novel from the estrangement of the bosom friends, "Judah" (Ben Hur) and "Messala," through to the cleans ing of the former's mother and sister of leprosy; the scene following the cleasing from leprosy was brought out with magniflcient tact and precision. The description of the sea fight and the rescue; the final conquest in the chariot race were brought out with splendid effect and held the closest attention of the audience. Mrs. McBride's work was enhanced by the excellent performance of the or ganizations that assisted in the en tertainment. The mixed chorus com posed of the members of the Juneau Ladies' Musical Club and the Orpheus Club, under the direction of Willis E. Nowell, the capable conductor of those organizations, rendered "Glory to God," from Handel's "Messiah," as the finale to part first, and the "Hal lelujah Chorus," from the same work at the conclusion of part fourth. Mr. Harry J. Fisher sang with great feel ing "Till the Sands of the Desert Grow Cold," at the conclusion of part second, and the Juneau High School Band played an appropriate selection at the conclusion of part third which | contained the description of the char iot race. Mrs. Royal A. Gunnison pre [ sided at the piano and her work was ! faultless. The music furnished was all exceueni. anu me cum u H>v.v that Mr. Nowell has two excellent or ganizations under his control. Mr. Schell has improved the Juneau band wonderfully in the past few months. The ladies of the chorus from the Musical Club were: Mesdames Law rence, Gabbs. Pettit, Nowell. Mc Naught on. Kaser. Woodford. Valen tine, Hooker, Winn. Burford, Frie man. Nelson. Sigman, Kashevaroff. Davis, and Misses Hero, Chambers, McGill, Chapin. The gentlemen of the chorus from the Orpheus Club were A. A. Gabbs, H. J. Fisher, B. D. Blakeslee, A. W. Rhodes, A. Ferte, W. C. Iirish, E. D. Vaut, Cedric Da vis. T. J. McCaul, J. H. King. L. O. Egginton. J. B. Stevens, C. B. Walker, Guy McNaughton and J. W. Bell. The sum realized from the enter tainment will form the necleus of a fund with which to establish a good public library that is to be estab lished on the completion of the new high school building. With this ne cleus which is not unimportant it is believed that the library will speedily grow into a great institution and be come a source of recognized useful ness to the community. The initial movement of Mrs. J. C. McBride to establish a creditable public library in Juneau was a pronounced success. o?o?o iMISSION AT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH The services at the Catholic church are being well attended throughout the week. Last night Father Donnelly spoke on the lack of the spirit of re ligion manifested in these isolated re gions. He drew attention to an as certained fact that many men living altogether without religion in Alaska and heedless of God's law, resumed all their old religious practices as soon as they returned to their home sur roundings. He discussed the problem from many viewpoints and illustrated it with the immortal parable of the Prodigal Son. The mission will end on Sunday. Holy Mass Is at 7 a. m. and 10:30. The Sacrament of Confir mation will be solemnly administered before the last mass by the Rev. P. B. Donnelly, O.M.I, In the evening at 8 o'clock the concluding sermon will be preached. \J U V NEW MANAGER FOR JUALIN TAKES CHARGE Albert N&deau, superintendent at Jualin, came down from the mines to meet L.
