CANVASS FOR DIRECTORY i
TO BEGIN JAN. 20TH
*
The Juneau Investment company will
>n or about Jan. 20 begin a canvass of
:he city for the purpose of obtaining a
1st of names and addresses of all in
habitants of Juneau to be placed in fr
the new city directory it is now pre
paring; and it respectfully requests
that its representatives be given every
possible assistance on the part of
those upon whom they call, in order
that this work may be expedited as ^
much as possible.
It is the purpose of this company to
tiave this book ready for distribution
by March 1st, and if the citizens are
as ready to lend their assistance, as
have been the business men to give
their support, this will be possible. Al
most every business man in our city
has already reserved advertising space
in this directory, and although we be
lieve It to be one of the best advertis- m
ing mediums available, it is quite evl- 111
dent that the "Juneau spirit" has en- ,n
tered in it to a very great extent. Our
business men seem willing and anx- W
ious to "booBt" anything that will
"boost" Juneau. We believe our direc
tory will be a good thing for the city;
we feel that our contention is con- Ji
firmed by the support we have been ol
given; and we are very grateful In- fo
deed. T
This book will be printed and bound th
in Juneau, which fact insures a super- ir
lor product in that respect; and it is fb
our intention that its contents will
prove useful to our citizens; and a
"Doost" for the town. T
