The Juneau Pirates lost aonther game to tlie Islaud Wildcats on the IhjukuIs grounds yesterday afternoon. It was one of those games embracing all kinds of playing with sensational" surprises. Juneau went into the game w ith but three of the former line-up. C. Harris, llurlbutt and Molloy. The team has been materially strengthened, but loose work, combined with first-class support for Pittman. gave Douglas Tread well another victory. The sen sational rally of the Pirates in their half of the ninth was extremely ex-i roiling. It was a pitchers' battle in 'which Pitt man had. except in three | instances, gilt-edge sunport. and in ; w hich Hunt was handicapped by eight errors. There was at one time occasion for looking up the rules over the contlict ing decisions of the umpires. Field Umpire Barrugar insisted that Bayless was safe on third, McClain insisted that he was out. The rules make it plain that the umpire behind the bat decides on third base territory when the tield umpire is engaged on first or second bus*-. It was a very close de cision.

Juneau Gives Tourists Big Time of Their Trip The reception tendered by Juneau to the excursion party of the Alaska Bureau of the New Seattle Cham ber of Commerce was a success in ev ery particualr. The plans arranged to show the people the great uniting development going on in and about Juueau were carried out successfully. mau> availing themselves of the op portunity to study conditions at first hand. The social tealures of the re ception were accepted iu the same hearty spirit 111 which they were ex tended and the entire party continued its journey with th?* kindliest feel ings toward the Capital City. The ball in the evening was a very happy occasion 'I t e large auditor ium of Kiks' hall was taxed to its ca pacity. Co v. J. K. A. Strong with Mrs. Scott C. Bou? led the grand march followed closely by Mr. Seth Maun, the personal representative of the President, and .Mrs. Stroug. K. H. Hamilton, representing the Hearst papers, said that he was more interested in the people of Alaska than in the country's resources He waut eti to know what the people want from Congress. He said that he believed that be had found the clue and was working to spread this information. Scott C. Bone chief ?*dilor of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, said that he I was amazed at the amount of develop ment that was going on about Ju mail and the tremendous resources' that are here. Anything that con- j cerned the welfare of Alaska was of j gnat moment to Seattle. It was his idea that every member of the editor ial statY of his paper should become personally acquaint* d with Alaska so that they could write intelligently about it. This was the reason per sonal visits were being made at this time. Clyde I. Morris, a pioneer of Nome, I and for two years president of the Arc tic Club, of Seattle, was one of the; enthusiastic converts to the coming i greatuos of Juneau. He visited the Perseverance mine in Silver Bow bas in. and he is convinced that Juneau is the center of what is destined to be i he bigg. si gold producing district ?>f the world. Mr. Morris is a con tractor. and built nearly all of thej railroads of Seward peninsula. He, will quit the excursion at Nome and remain there, where lie still has large iuterests, until later in the seasou.

Tonight they leave White aorse for Dawson. TREASURER SMITH ARRIVES IN JUNEAU W. (!. Smith, the newly appointed Territorial Treasurer, arrived in Ju neau on the Admiral Sampson early yesterday morning. While in the city he is the guest of tlov. J F. A. Strong and Mr*. Strong While his term of office does not begiu for some time Mr. Smith has already commenced work. This morning the Territorial Treas urer began making out the forms to it*- used in the collection of poll taxes throughout the Territory as provided .u the act passed by the recent ses sion of the Territorial Legislature. It is essential that these blank forms and assessment rolls he placed in the hands of the United States court com missioners who have been created poll tax collector by the act, as soon as ftos*ible so that collection can be made before the summer season is over. Mr Smith was formerly cashier of the First flank of Katallu and is very familiar with conditions around Con troller hay and the Bering river coal and oil I elds. The people of Katalta. Mr. Smith states, are hopeful over the future outlook for that section. The prospect of favorable government ac tion looking toward the encourage meut of development of the coal and oil resources has inspired them with new xeal. The Katalla Development Company is being reorganised as the Alaska Oil and Kehuing Company and it is un derstood that sufficient capital has been secured to place it on a sound basis and to increase the capacity of the plant. At present gasoline and other petrolium products for the local trade only are beiug supplied. The government has experienced much difficulty and vexatious delay iu getting out the coal samples for the navy department Only an insignifi cant amount has been conveyed to tide water thus far on ucouut of the transportation conditions. The boats built to bring the coal from the river banks, where it hud been hauled dur ing the winter, were unfitted for the work and new small boats had to be built The Maryland has put in new buoys in Controller bay rendering those wa ters safer for navigation. The cruis er has now gone to Seward but will return for the coal about August 1. SEVEN FOOT VEIN STRUCK AT JUALIN Albert Xadeau. superintendent of tiie Algunican Development company, owners of the Jualin mines, arrived from Jualin 011 the launch Pacific last night. Mr. Nadeau will remain in Juneau for a few days attending to business mutters. Everything is mov ing along smoothly at Jualin. accord ing to Mr. Xadeau and the mines are showing up well. "We have been doing development work," said Mr. Xadeau. "and recently iu running a crosscut from the old workings encountered when iu about forty feet, an ore shoot over seven feet in width that is very good. This is indeed verp promising. We now have three faces on the ore body and are now timbering the old shaft, ami will be siuging by July 20. The shaft will be 7x16 and a contract has been let for sinking 200 feet." o?0?0 Waffles all day at "U and I" I.unch i Room. 1 It I. SHAW SPEAKS ON CONDITIONS ?o-o? "The Kenai peninsula is a region of potential possibilities iu a mineral way," said L. F. Shaw, editor of the Seward Gateway, who arrived yester duy on the Alameda, "but its develop ment is seriously retarded by the with drawal of the Matanuska coal fields, our logical fuel supply. But under the present administration," he con tinued, "we are hopeful for the lift ing of the embargo on coal, so neces sary to our growth iu a material way. "1 find that a wrong impression prevails here with regard to the clos ing down of the Alaska Northern rail road," said Shaw. "I hold no brief for this corporation, but it is just as well that the facts be known. The Alaska Central Railroad company was granted immunity, by act of Congress, from the annual tax of $100 per mile until the year 1916. The bondholders of this corporation, through foreclos ure proceedings, fell heir to this rail way property together with all its equities and organized the Alaska Northern Railway Company. After operating two years, the railway com panj's officials were notified, late last fall, that the government had a claim for mileage taxes, aggregating $67, 000. against the corporation. The sit uation. therefore, is this: The Alas ka Northern company maintains that the immunity extended to the former company is an equity similar to the right-of-way equity, acquired through I bona fide purchase. The government. or wither the Department or justice, takes tlte technical ground that the immunity was granted to a corpora tion known as the Alaska Central Rail road Company not the Alaska North ern Railway Company, which it holds 1 is an entirely different concern. "The Alaska Northern people have been advised that if they operate the road, they will, as a company, be li able to a penalty of $1,000 for each day trains are run and the officials be subject to criminal prosecution. In this dilemma there was no other course to pursue than to close down the road, pending an adjustment of the matter. "For the temporary relief of the min ing operators depending on the rail way for transportation facilities, the railway company placed a small auto car at the disposal of a citizens' com mittee, running it and paying the ex penses entailed in its operation." Mr. Shaw is a brother-in-law to Judge Thomas R. Lyons, having married Margaret Lyons, the Judge'H sister, who is well known in Juneau. Mr. Shaw is a member of the Demo cratic divisional committee of the Third Division and is a sourdough newspaper man of Alaska. o?o?o R. 1). PINNEO IS A JUNEAU VISITOR K. D.
