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.

their shoes during the last few days
on account of the sphinx-like silence
maintained by "Larry" Reedy (better

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. Iu Juneau?Joe Snow, J.

Alaska Liner Probably
Gone, But all are Safe
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.
Her wireless signals of distress were
picked up at once, and the revenue
cutter Tahotna was dispatched from
Dutch Harbor to the ill-fated craft.
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. Under
the latter name she plied between
Coos Hay and San Francisco and be
tween the latter port and Seattle. 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. She is insured for $15o.00o.
