DOUGLAS CIVIS CLUB
TO IMPROVE CEMETERY
DOUGLAS, June 10. ? At the last
meeting of the Douglas Island Civic
Improvement Club the question of
fencing the cemetery came up for dis
cussion and a committee, consisting
of Mesdanies Robers. Richards, Hile,
McCormick and Feusi, and Messrs.
Hopp, Galwas, Gillis, John Hensen and
Varmaman, was appointed to visit the
cemetery with the object of dterinin
ing the possibilities there, and the
cost of fencing.
The results will be reported at a
special meeting of the club Wednes
day, June 11th, 1913, at the school
bouse.
The fencing of the cemetery is the
one big tiling that the club has under
taken to do this year and should re
ceive the support of every citizen, as
well-kept cemeteries are significant of
higher civilization.
At an early meeting of the club this
year an amount of $50.00 was sub
scribed as a beginning of the cemetery
fund, to which individual donations
may be added. These donations can
be left with John Hensen at his office.
The Civic Club hopes to add substan
tially to the original subscription by
money raised from a few good enter
tainments to be given in the near fu
ture.
The club has also decided to take
up the three different lines of work
and every one interested in civic af
fairs. literary work, or child's welfare
work is requested to be present at the
Wednesday evening meeting.
There is much work to be done in
all of these lines, particularly in the
Child Welfare League. It should meet
with unlimited interest as it will em
brace so much. Its principal object
should be the bringing about of a bet
ter condition o faftairs. regarding play
grounds, gymnasiums, etc.
There are many things to be done
for the boys and girls of all ages to
interest them in things of a higher
moral nature; teaching them to read
good books; admire good pictures: en
joy good music; see good shows; have
good conduct: choose good compan
ions. and become good citizens.

SENATOR TANNER IS
A JUNEAU VISITOR

visitor from Skagway today. He ar
rived on the Alameda and will remain
here until tomorrow evening. Sena
tor Tanner came to Juneau on legal
business. He says business is good at

EAKIN GOES TO I
KOYUKUKAND YUKON
Henry M. Eakin, who has heen one
of the government geologists employed
lor the past several years in Alaska,
passed through on the .Mariposa en
route to the interior where he will
continue the surveys in the Yukon
Koyukuk region. .Mr. Eakin will put
in tiie entire season iu that locality.
He will work from Fort Hamlin, on
the Yukon, to Hughes, on the Koyu
kuk, covering that particular section
formerly known as the Red .Moun- j
tain district but now known as the In- 1
dian River district. He will then trav- ,
el across country to Ruby.
Speaking of the Juneau outlook, Mr.
Eakin said that this town was des
tined to be a great mining city. The!
geological department has a very high :
opinion of the Juneau section. Mr.
Eakin also said that he had seen
some very line specimens from the
Skagway section and other Lynn can
al points. He thinks that all Alaska

coming.
OLD-TIMER AGAIN
IN CAPITAL CITY
Wes .Matlock arrived in Juneau last i
night on the .Mariposa aud will re
main here a few days. Mr. iMatlock
did not haul the gravel that forms
Chicken Ridge (now known as Gas
tineau Heights) but he was here a
long time ago. In 1897 Mr. Matlock
bought the old log church and con- i
verted the property into a brewery in |
1898. However, the placer fever was
running high in 1899 and he became <
infected aud sailed for Nome.
The Seward peninsula metropolis
has been his habitat ever since those
exciting days and he is now engaged
in dredge mining on Solomon river.
He is now enroute to his mining in- i
terests, but will tarry a few days In !
Juneau. Speaking of the town last .
night he said that he was glad to see -
the evidences of prosperity that were 1
visible at the present time and ex- (
pressed the opinion that the people .
here could not fully appreciate the I
greatness to which Juneau is destined, j
