THE ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
VOL. II.. NO 1SS JUNEAU. ALASKA. WEDNESDAY. JU*NE 18. 1913. PRICE TEN CENTS PRESIDENT STARTED THINGS GOING Business Men Favoring New Waterfront Avenue Interest in the movement to estab lish a waterfront thoroughfare is growing all the time. Kvery day the subject is discussed where two or more business men can be found to gether. The grea activity along the present waterfront but serves to ac centuate that interest. Speaking of tlie scheme. Henry Shattuck said that he thought it would be a splendid thing front the general scope of the tentative plans, at least so far as outlined There was no question of the necessity of provid ing another outlet for the shipping dis trict. .Mr. Shattuck said that he would like to have the matter receive con sideration by the city government. He thinks that if definite plans were drawn and submitted for the consid eration of the people most interested and found feasible, that the coun cil would take favorable action on the matter, if it met with the approval of I the property owners most interested. J. t\ McBride. manager of the C. W. Young Company, said: "1 am most certainly in favor of a waterfront thoroughfare, one that will connect the Sheep creek and Salmon creek government roads This street would become the main irtery of Juneau. It would provide a water level avenue connecting the two industrial districts on each side of the town and become a great economic factor in the hand ling of freight and supplies that must reach those industrial districts. It would also afford egress to the only available territory for the physical expansion of the town. Moreover, a very earnest argument in favor of the roadway along the waterfront is the value it will have in giving increased lire protection to the town. A street such as this would be of inestimable benefit in case of tire along the water t'ront. It would make every place eas ily accessible to the tire department. We are no longer a village, we have grown into a city and are confronted with a city's needs. We should rise to the occasion and meet the de mauds." Charles Goldstein, head of the big Goldstein stores, said: "Yes, 1 think it is a splendid idea to create this waterfront avenue. If the wharf own ers will join in the plan there ought not to be any difficulty in bringing it about. While it would not benefit me individually, 1 realize that it would be of great benefit to the whole town and am therefore in favor of it." JUNEAU PLANS TO I RECEIVE VISITORS ?o-o?

MILDRED DREWETT GOES TO NEW HOME Little Mildred Prewett gets a new iome. This decision was arrived at ?y Judge R. W. Jennings of the district ourt, in reviewing the case that has >een before him for the past several lays. The solution to the tense situ ition was offered through the agree nent to adopt the child in the dis rict court by Charles E. Hooker and vife this morning. As has been stat ed the child was placed in the custody >f Mrs. Orloff King, subject to the or lers of the court April 13, 1912, at the ermination or a trial in which the nirents William and Mamie Prewett vere divorced. In giving his decision on the hear ng which has just closed Judge Jen lings reviewed the evidence offered md called attention to the status of :he ease. The court holds that the evi lence introduced attacking the moral lualifications of Mrs. King are not well-founded and also that even though :he mother. Mrs. Prewett. may not be :he proper person to have the custody >f the child, her desires are entitled to consideration. The decision holds that Mrs. King is now living outside the Jurisdiction of the court. The court referred to the offer to adopt by Charles E. Hooker and wife and of the willingness of the child's natural mother to acquiesce in such action and made an order that Mrs. Orloff King should deliver the child into the custody of Charles E. Hooker and wife to be held by them until further or der of this court, and, upon adoption of the child by them, this court will relinquish all jurisdiction in the prem ises. LIEUT.

JUNEAU BASEBALL MEN IN NO PANIC "There is absolutely no truth in the report," said Manager Tom Kudouich, "that the management of the Juneau baseball club contemplated amalga mation with the Aluska-Gastiueau team or any other baseball organiza tion in Juneau. We will continue through wtih the series according to schedule and it will be as the Juneau baseballl team. Because we have lost two games out of three there is no reason for a panic. There will un doubtedly be some changes in the line-up. but I am not prepared to say at this time just what those changes will be. The season is young yet, and ? Juneau is not whipped." Speaking for the Alaska-Gastineau baseball interests, Mr. Thane said: "1 have left the running of the team to Lawrence Heedy, as manager, and to Dick Wulzen, as captain. What ever they say, goes. Personally, 1 am in favor of a strictly Alaska-Gastineau team, and during my trips to the var ious divisions 1 find that the employees are all in favor of this stand also. There is a great amount of enthusiasm at the various camps in regard to our team and us the nine is being main tained for the benefit of our employ ees. I believe their wishes should be acceded to in this regard. I ant pleased at the showing the colts have made so far this season, even though we haven't struck our true gait yet. By the end of the season we will be going some." Mr. Wulzen said: "Tnose are mj sentiments, also." Reedy said: "We are here to stick.

The next of the series between Ju neau and Douglas-Treadwell will be played on the Juneau grounds next Sunday. Charles W. Carter, manager of the C. W. Young Tigers, said: "I am op posed to this talk of consolidation. Our team was organized among our own employees purely for sport and for their pi eursae kthe their pleasure and we will not break it up. There is no reason why it should be done. I will do all 1 can to aid the Juneau baseball team and to keep up the interest in baseball. It has not yet been shown that the Ju I neau team is without resources." o?o?o DISCOUNTING A STRONG LIKING FOR CHICKEN ?o-o? Mayor Charles W. Carter, who in semi-private life is manager of the C. W.

The President also told other mem-i hers of the Senate and House of Rep resentatives that he desires that Con gress provide lor the building of gov ernment railroads in Alaska.
