THE ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
Yoi? II.. NO 186 JUNEAU, ALASKA, SATURDAY. JUNE 14, 1913. PRICK fEN CKN1S SS. YUKON DOUBTLESS TOTAL WRECK Two Games of Big Base Ball Coming Tomorrow From present indications tomorrow's [ base ball Karnes will bring out ban ner crowds. The interest is becoming more feverish as the season progress es. The close standing of all the con testants but serves to accentuate that interest. The Juneau earn goes to Douglas to play the third of the ten game series. The standing so far is even. It is not known yet whether the Douglas-Tread well line-up will be changed so as to include the new bat tery or not. These new ones are fresh front the University of Washington and said to be good. Tom Kadonich has not much to say except that he expects his men to win. W. Harris, the clever back stop for Juneau, had his arm shattered in the last inning of Wednesday evening's game by be ing hit with a pitched ball and he will probably be out of the .tame. On the home grounds the ('. W. Young Tigers and the Alaska-Gastin eau Terriers will engage in a death struggle, judging from the statements that are flying about. Charley Carter says there is not the slightest doubt j 1 t?ut that the Tigers will win. "We don't need to make any changes," said Carter, "to beat that aggregation, bat if we find it expedient, why we have , the material. We hired a young one, onely a few days ago that is a jim dandy. Me can stand the regulation j distance from a solid board fence and ' write his name on it by dipping the ball in paint?and that's what I call control. But we will not use this kit ten unless we have to. Saegers is still j good for winning from the class we have been up against." There's a Reason. The members of the C. W. Young nine are full of beaming smiles and good humor today. There's a reason! The conceit and self-confidence with which they had become inoculated by reason of two victories over their ri ! vals, the Alaska-Gastineau terriers. | hits been seeping away from them via their shoes during the last few days on account of the sphinx-like silence maintained by "Larry" Reedy (better (Continued to Page 3.) SALOON MEN MUST TAKE CENSUS NOW Judge Hubert W. Jennings has set a new rule that is to govern the action of the court iu the matter of passing on applications for 1 censes to sell liquors. For the pur|>ose of getting this idea before those engaged in the business a conference was held this afternoon at which all of the saloon men in town were requested to be present. Nearly all engaged in the busines in Juneau were present. The rule is laid down that the sa loon men themselves must furnish the court satisfactory evidence that the majority of the white citizens over twenty-one years of age living within two miles of the place where liquors are sold, have consented, and. this evidence must be obtained by the taking of a census once each year, by and under supervision of persons sat isfactory to the court; also that such census must be made at the expense of those engaged in th>> business. That matters may be facilitated for the present occasion the court sug-' gested the names of parties that would be satisfactory to take such census in the cities of Juneau and Douglas.

The pro duction made a tremendous hit. and is being generalv discussed by those that witnessed it today. The film was splendidly produced, and it is a masterpiece. Hackett, a prince among matinee heroes, and one of the most talented men on the American stage, was seen at his best in his best play.

Alaska Liner Probably Gone, But all are Safe I SEATTLE, June 14.?The steamship ' Yukon is doubtless a total loss Such if the information received from Capt. Archie McKay at the olllces of the Alaska Coast Company today, though his dispatcher give very meagre de tails. The vessel was sailing on the usual course, en route from Bethel and other Kuskokwim points and Good News bay to Seattle, when she struck the rocks yesterday in Unimak pass.

She reached the Yukon at midnight, and took the four passengers and all the crew except four men on board. These she took to Unalaska. Four, members of the crew are standing by the ship, and they will remain as long as there is any chance of saving her. The Yukon had discharged all of her cargo and was returning to her home port light, having only a small quantity of ballast in the hold. She had taken on four passengers, all from Good News Hay. and carried a crew of thirty-five men. The Victoria, that is expected to sail from Nome lor Seattle today, will stop at Cnalaska and g?-t the passen gers and crew of the Yukon and bring them to this port. The Yukon is an iron steamship and was built at Philadelphia in 1S7'J, and was the Spanish liner Culm, ply ing between Havana and Key West for several years. Afterwasd her name was changed to the Argonauta Hater she took an American register and her name was changed to the Co coa and Inter the M. !?'. Plant.

Her name was changed to Yukon when the Alaska Coast Company put Iter on (lie Alaska run ' The management of the Alaska Coast Company announced todaj that if the Yukon shall prov< to be a loss, another vessel will be plaeed on the run.
