games behind they regard the pros !

the direction of Coach Kennedy, of
Treadwell. They have played several

COMMERCIAL MEN
ARE OPTIMISTIC
"Conditions were never so good at
bottom as now," said J. F. Chamber
lin, the well known commercial man,
who arrived in Juneau on the last Mar
iposa after an extensive visit in the
States. "The prosperity that is com
ing now," he said, "is resting on a
sound foundation. Everybody realiz
es it and in the past few weeks there
has been a marked evidence of it in
every line. During nineteen days ol
January last one of the largest estab
lishments in Seattle did more business
than during the whole of January last
year and last year was not so bad.
"The passage of the new currency
law had much to do with it. During
the discussion of this bill in Congress
a course of lectures on the plan was
delivered in Seattle and these lectures
were given earnest attention by Seat
tle business men with the result that
everyone is very familiar with the ad
vantages that are to be reaped through
its operation, t'nder the new law
money will be available to carry on
legitimate enterprises and people will
put their capital at work confident that
it will not be lost.
"There will be a large expansion of
busincs and a great industrial develop
ment inaugurated almost immediately,
without any wildcattlng feature. The
relations of the banks of the country
to the reserve banks is such that there
is no Incentive to over-speculation and
yet security and assistance to legiti
mate business. Confidence has been
restored.
"In coast cities much thought Is
centered on Alaska. With the passago
of the railroad bill and the opening up
of the coal mines, Alaska is certain to
be the scene of a great development
and the population will increase rap
idly."

Big Historical
Production Tonight
Patrons of the Grand theatre will
get to see something far out of the
ordinary in the big three-reel fea
ture, "The Law of the WeBt," and the
management promises that this will
be one of the most sensational and
realistic films ever shown In Juneau,
and worth ten times the regular price
of admission. In seeing this big pro
duction with Its big battles, Indian
massacres, and strong love story in
connection, you cannot help but look
back and see what our grandfathers
and Indian fighters of 1872 went
through. The Kay Bee film people
employ Indians to act in these pictures
and are taken in the identical places
where great battles have occurred, so
that you actually study history and
see those battles as If you were on
the battlefield forty years ago. Don't
miss this chance as you might not get
another. To send you home happy and
laughing we will put on a very lauglu
able reel entitled "Overcoats," which
you are sure to enjoy to the fullest
extent.
