THE ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
VOL ? NQ 1S5 JUNEAU. ALASKA. FRIDAY, JUNE 13, 1913. PRICE TEN CENTS BIG FIRE CONSUMES SUNRISE CUY ?* Big Pacific Coast Dock Provides for Boulevard Tentative plans are now being con sidered by several business men to I push through the great waterfront thoroughfare. The Pacific Toast Steamship Company is practically com mitted to it. When Vice President J. C. Ford was in Juneau last winter he declared his intentions to assist in every way possible toward giving Ju neau splendid dockage facilities and the idea of this great waterfront street appealed to him as essential to the | scheme. Plans are now complete for! the new dock and provision is made j for the thoroughfare to cross the prop erty. Kxclusive of this dock site the j Pacitic Const Company has sold all of its property along Franklin street retaining only the two approaches on j either end of the block from Franklin ! street to the dock. This dock will be | six hundred feet in length. There is j a possibility that two concrete ware houses will be built on the inner side for the accomodation of shippers. The. street aft?-r passing the new dock would swing across the outer edge of the Shattuck and C. \V. Young prop erty and then again pass over the Pa citic Coast property, including the present dock of the co npanv and ad jacent property. Front this point the( str??-t will have no further private property to cross until reaching the Hats at the mouth of Cold creek. The ferry slip will of course be shut iu by this new street but an excellent lo cation can easily be provided at the foot of Main street, which would be ex tended down to the water's edge if the new thoroughfare is built. As soon as the new dock is built and the thoroughfare created, the Pa ciflc Coast Company, in accordance with the plans as announced by Mr. Ford last winter, will undoubtedly re plat the property, including the pres ent dock and adjacent title lauds and place it on the market. In making the replat care will, of course, be tagen to provide generous means of ap proach front every direction by ded icating cross streets leading front Front to all parts of the property. P. C. Brown, the mechanical engin eer. who has charge of the bridge and building department of the Pacific Coast Company, is now in Juneau. Or ders have been given by the company to let the contract at once for the building of the approaches for the great dock that is to be biult in front of the block on which the Juneau Iron Works is located.

Recently Dr. Tur rentine has been to the Westward hav ing gone to Kodiak on the last trip of the Admiral Sampson. The particu lar duty that has called him to this part of Alaska at this time is to in vestigate the possible fertilizer re sources of the country. There are two expeditions in the field now, one un der Prof. Kigg, the other under Prof. Frye. both of the University of Wash ington. These gentlemen have char tered the cruising launches Gjoa and Znrembo and are accompanied by a party of scientists on each boat. The expeditions are for the purpose of investigating the kelp forests or fields in Southeastern and Southwestern Alaska for the purpose of determining their value and possibilities in pro ducing fertilizer. The task Dr. Tur rentine has set himself is to find a means of consuming the fish cannery waste in conjunction with kelp in the manufacture of fertilizer. Dr. Turrentine says that he has found possibilities of getting results from the canneries in the Cook Inlet country, but has not yet fairly started on his investigations. He will remain in Alaska during the greater part of the summer making invesigations along this line, lie says it is rather too early to get a practical idea of what may be accomplished.

This is one of those sepctacular extravaganzas that people have been known to travel thousands of miles to witness. The photo play is divided into four parts and is intended to cover the history of humanity from the first scene in the Garden of Eden down to the pres ent day. The first part presents the allegorical story of the fall of man, as taken from Milton's "Paradise Lost." I'art two deals with the coming of the Messiah as taken from the "Sessiade," by Klopstok. Fragments of the pas sion play are presented. Part three' shows the influence of our so-called sciences in working evil among the children of men. This part has a touch of Goethe's "FauBt" in it and some of the censure of Marie Correli. Part four is divided into two long reels, and deals with modern days. Satan is still shown to be a very busy entity, working evil among all classes, but using in particular, the power of the rich. The whole theme is a ser mon on the evil and falsity of mortal thought and aspiration, and points the way to spiritual realization of truth and happiness. u u v ************ ? CALL OF THE MOOSE. ? ?
