BANKERS MUST DEFEND
BOWLING ALLEY HONORS
The bankers' bowlers, who gained a
victory over the "overdrafts" Satur
day night at the Blks'-alleys, will have
to defend their honors. The over
drafts have secured attorneys, and the
lawyers will meet the bankers in mor
tal combat, probably some evening thlB
week. Jim Barragar, who is some
bowler, himself, said it is no wonder
that the bankers defeated the over
draft fellows when one considers the
Interest that was taken?but interest
does not always fall toward the banks
when bankers have lawyers to con
tend with.

out system" against the lawyers, and

victory to their standard Saturday ?

CHINA JOE HOLDS
OPEN HOUSE NOW
Chiua Joe, one of Juneau's oldest in
habitants is receiving in honor of the
beginning of a new year in China.
This has been a fixed hubit with China
Joe, and for more than thirty years ho j
has had the latch string out in his '
Juneau home, and has welcomed old :
and young on this annual occasion. He I
has rich candies and fruits from the i
Flowery Empire for women and chil- i
dren, and serves something cheering I
to male adults, but what is still more i
ingratiating he gives the smile of <
loyal friendship to all.
Always friendly with the whites and I
kind to the qeedy, China Joe endeared <
himself to the early pioneers. In one
particular Instance he won their last- <
ing friendship. He had a monopoly of !
flour during one winter when boats
were many months apart, and instead <
of realizing a handsome profit as many I
white merchants have since been
known to do in the Northland, he kept
the price of bread the same. Later
when the great Chinese exodus from
the Pacific Coast set in, during 1885,
Joe was allowed to remain, while all ]
the other Chinese, employees of Tread- (
well, were driven from the mines and i
forced to leave the country.
China Joe is said to have come to ]
Alaska first in 1874, touching at Wran
gell, while following the great gold
rush to the Cassiar country. Three ,
years later he returned to Wrangell (
and still later went to Sitka. In 1881
ho was caught with the gold fever and
foil, wed the rush to Silver Bow basin,
at which .time the strike was made on
Gold creek and the the town of Ju
neau was formed. Arriving here he
established himself on the identical
spot which has continued to be his
Still clinging to his little place at
Main and Third streets, ^hlna Joej
lives, and continues In his unobtruslvo
way to cultivate the little garden cre
ated on the plot of ground surround
ing his house way back In 1881. Un
abashed by the changes and muta
tions of time he continues his peace
ful existence. If he is surprised at the
wonderful growth of Juneau ho gives
no evidence of it. During all these
years he has maintained his small
garden on the lot occupied in part
by his house and has busied himself
at other work betimes. If the years
