"juveniles like

|
Mother Lung's "Kiddies," the famil
, iur title applied to the Juveuilo Bos
, tonians, are enjoying their Northern
experiences hugely according to state
! meats made to The Empire. "1 like
Juneau," said Miss Blllie O'Neil, "es
pecially when the sun shines." Miss
O'Neil is the handsome brunette, who
takes the part of the dlgnilied father
of romantic girls, or as priest and fath
er confessor on occasion. Miss O'
Neil hails from Omaha and claims
| friendship with William Jennings Bry
an. She also has friends of long stand
ing here in Juneau.
Inu Mitchell is the beautiful blonde
prima donna aud heroine of all the
romantic productions. Miss Mitchell
is from Ashland, a little Wisconsin
town on Lake Superior. She has en
joyed every moment of the time in
Alaska. Thorn Hellen is a native of
Stuttgart, Germany. She is the hand
some brunette that faultlessly inter
prets the heroic male figures in the
musical dramas that are presented.
? STUBBY MY LING
> At Orpheum, Saturday, iu "Olivette"
. Miss ilellen is very much impressed
j with the grandeur of Alaska scenery
1 and is looking forward to the trip
? down the might Yukon.
Dixie White is the pretty and clev
er blonde that usually plays the part
of a swell gentlman friend or chum to
the hero. Miss White is much im
pressed with Alaska. She was fas
? einated with the fishing around Ketchi
' kan and likes Juneau. Miss White is
_ a Seattle girl. Miss I'alsy Henry and
Miss Daisy Henry are two little mites
of nervous energy, wit and intelli
gence that help to make the wheels
go round?Patsy always has one of
the leading male comedy parts. The
Henry sisters are also from the Spir
it City. Miss Bee Myling and Miss
j Stubby Myling are two pretty little
I Montana girls that are important in
every production that goes on. Stub
by usually plays opposite to Doris
Can Held. Doris Canfield, as a young
man, is a large percentage of the life
. of each production. She certainly
- has few equals in comedy parts. It
1 is said that Cauadians, like the Eng
lish, have 110 sense of humor, yet she
is a native of Port Arthur, Ontario,
but really now claims Ogdensburg,
New York, as home. Vera Lockhart
is a stately blondet from Buffalo, New
York. She has the par tof "Duke
. Des Iffs," in "Olivette," which is to
be presented in Juneau Saturday night.
Mazie Hill is a very pretty brunette
:and one of the leaders of the chorus,
when not taking more important parts.
' She likes her work and will rise in
? che profession. Her home is in Kl
' leusbuig, Washington. Pete Crawford,
' is a handsome blonde from the Sun
?
> ny South. She has a part in the
I "Dream Girl," and works in the chor
I us part ot the time. Miss Crawford is
1 from Oklahoma. Blanche Ogden is a
! very pretty little girl with a winsome
voice urd quaint manner that winu her
' many friends. She is nearly always
> cast lor a ballad or song specialty in
every appearance. Miss Ogden is
J very English. Her home is in Lon
? don, England.
, Mrs. Lang is delighted with Alaska.
"I think Juneau is such a quaint and
picturesque place," she said, "but I've
been puzzled over one thing. I would
like to know whether that mountain
(Mt. Juneau) was squeezed out of the
town or whether the town just slipped
like a skirt from the form of the
mountain. It looks as if that great
pinnacle might fall over some time
and crush the place."
Bert Lang is also an enthusiastic
booster of the North. "Say, this is
the greatest land on earth," he said,
"I have never seen such grand scenery
as is to be found in this section around
Juneau?and health, my, this is a
healthy place. I feel so good I want
to go out and kill a bear." If the ice
in LeBarge hangs on a little longer,
Mr. Lang will secure a guide and take
a bear hunt before leaving Gastineau
channel.

RELIGIOUS PAPER
PRAISES CABINET
The two journalists of the Cabinet,
Secretary Bryan and Secretary Dan
iels, with timely and trenchant words,
have rebuked the section of the Ameri
can press that now is busy arousing
the war passion of the nation by faked
news, by distorted interpretations of
orders issuing from Washington ofli
ciasl and by unmistakable fanning of
the flame of race prejudice. The vig
or and candor of this attack upon a dis
reputable minority of American journ
alists will be welcomed by the press
of the country, which, judged by a poll
made by Japanese natiouuls resident
in America, has been preponderatlng
ly on the side of amity and mainte
nance of good will. The Bismarck
saying that "the windows our press
smashes we shall have to pay for" is
one that the present administration
evidently has more firmly fixed in
mind than was the case when, in 1898,
some of the same journals now busy
in throwing "saud into the bearings"
were forcing the hand of the govern
ment in negotiations with Spain.
Under tne guise ui u pseuuiri/unmi-1
ism the sensational journalist may vir- j
tually be a traitor not only to his coun
try but to the highest civilization of'
his time. Treason may mask under
the face of ultra-loyalty to country.
The nominal goal may be war for de
fense of national Interests; the real,
aim may be stimulus of a hectic crav
ing for sensational newspapers. Nor
is this charge of social treason against
the journalistic war-promoter one that
falls alone from the lips of idealists'
like Tolstoi or Bryan. Evidence from
responsible diplomats and from journ
alists with consciences is corrobora
tive.
Candor of denunciation and vigor
of action against journalism of a
strife-provoking kind is not confined,
in these days, to the field of interna
itional relations. The national Con
gress of mothers now in session in
Boston has had laid before it by the
I secretary of the Religious Education
j Association an argument relative to j
parental responsibility in choice of
the family daily newspaper. it is,
based on the fundamental premise
that no home can consider as other
than treasonable to civilization and
decent family life any journalist who
proposes to make the stable product I
of his daily offering the record of hu
manity's crimes and destructive acts. |

LONELY PROSPECTOR
COMMITS SUICIDE
E. J. Stier, Uuited States couimis
"sioner lor the Kuskokwim district,
has written an interesting account of
the suicide about 45 miles up Stony,
river, a tributary of the Kuskokwim,
and 05 miles from Georgetown, of E.
C. Tawuey, a lonely prospector. The
man killed himself in February. The
dead body was discovered in March,
and Commissioner Stier took the wit-1
uesses, a jury and dog teams to the
cabin of the dead man where one of
the most expensive inquests ever held
in Alaska determined that -the man
had committed suicide. Tawuey, he
coming ill and helpless, had shot his i
dog aud then himself, using a 12-j
guage shotgun. The body was propped
up in bed; the gun barrel grasped in
the right, and a string was tied to the
trigger at one end and the other held
in the left hand. One foot was in
the bite of the string.
The following note was found close
at hand:

'"MR. E. C. TAWNEY.
"Tony.'"
The pelts referred to In the note
were found in the tent. They were ,
sold for $70.
The body was buried near where it"
was found.
The expenses of the inquest amount
ed to $1,072.25, of which $48 was wit
ness fees; $184 jurors' fees; $544 dog
team hire; $30 digging grave; $10
