Lockers have been built around the walls for each individual member of the team and in one corner there is a shower bath. A punching bag and oth er adjuncts for light training will be added.

Speaking about attendance. .Manager Tom Kadonich :s out selling i season tickets for the games to be j played on the home grounds. .Mr. Rad-i onich says that if enough tickets are sold the plan of charging a general admission will not be necessary, but i if not. then admission will have to be ; charged for each game. Tom says that; his men are enthusiastically working out every night and that they will give a good acount of themselves when the umpire says "play ball." Captain Mauseth has been making medicine' over on the Island during the past few days and it is a cinch that noth-! ing is being overlooked that will help them to take the coin back home. It \ is even whispered that they will come | loaded with private purses to be wagered on the game. Jack McBride Says Charley Carter's star second base-1 man says that the C. W. Young Ti gers will tear the hide ot* the Gastin eau Terriers, when next they come to gether "You may say for me." said i .McBride. "that we have something to unfold that will surprise the public more than the Nile green suits that Reedy is so proud of?everybody will sit up and take notice. I'd be sur prised if they get another game this season. They'll be wearin* those Nile j greens back in the stopes after a few [ games with us. We are just getting j onto the fact a few changes in posi- j tions will strengthen the team up a whole lot and this will be done." At this juncture Tom Saegers. the Tiger star pitcher, said he though it would be a shame to wear those nice green | suits back in the mines. "Why; wouldn't be a good plan to give them to the Juvenile Bostonians??that is. I of course, if they are not afraid of the hoodoo of wearing the rags of losers." j o?o?o ORPHEUM PHOTO PLAY IS VERY CLASSY A classy program at the Orpheum last night furnished good entertain ment for a fair sized crowd.

SHEEP CREEK ROAD BEING FINISHED? It is possible that the government road from Juneau to Sheep creek road may not be tinished this year. Should this misfortune be realized it will mean the loss to Juneau of bus iness amounting to at least $100,000 each month according to a well in formed business man who is iu close touch with the developments at Sheep creek. "This possibility must be eliminated by quick and concerted ac tion." said the business man referred to. "before it is too late." At the time the Sheep creek road was projected the City of Juneau agreed to build the collecting link from the lower end of Franklin street to the point where the road starts on the embankment and the Alaska-Gastineau agreed to do a certain amount of work on the Sheep creek end coming toward town. Both the City of Juneau and the Alaska-Gastineau Company have performed their parts of the agree ment. but there is now a big possibil ity that "Uncle Sam" will fail. Jack Hayes wbo lias cnarge 01 iue road building for the Alaska road commission in this part of the Terri tory said this morning that he was get ting along line with the work. The crew was now down opposite the Treadwell camp and there was but little more than a mile yet to finish, but a great deal of rojk work had to i be done in that mile. "We haven't enough money to finish the work." he said when approached on the sub ject. "at least not under the present appropriation?it is too bad. This is fine weather for road building and I did want to get it finished." An effort will be made to overcome the difficulty. It is believed that Col. Richardson will find some way of keep ing the work going when he is made acquainted with the facts. The failure to complete the road this season and at an early date will result in some changes in the plans of the company operating at Sheep creek. o?o?o MISS ALMA DELANEY WEDS GEORGE C.
