NO QUORUM FOR
COUNCIL LAST NIGHT ?
Captain J. T. Martin, chief of police '
of the city of Juneau did not get an '
opportunity to have his resignation 1
acted upon last evening for the reason
that there was no quorum present,
and his request to be relieved of the '
duties of office could not be granted ]
by the City Council.
Mayor C. W. Carter called the coun
cilmen to order and ordered roll call. <
but could not secure the required num
ber on account of the absence of
Councilmen Huribut, Pullen and Ged
des. His honor then adjourned the ,
meeting until Wednesday evening at ,
$ o'clock. At this point in the pro- (
ceedings Mr. Martin asked to have his j
resignation accepted, but was informed .
by the Mayor that he could only ac- ,
cept and file it for action by the coun- ,
cil at the forthcoming meeting, in (
connection with this action Mr. Car- j
ter paid Capt. Martin a nice compli
ment for his conduct as an officer and ,
said that it was with sincere regret .
that circumstances necessitated the
change, but he hoped the police offi- j
cer did not retain any hard or ill feel- ,
ing toward the council, and assured
him that the council membership felt ,
only the highest respect for him.
City Attorney Marshall added that
Capt. Martin, as chief of police did
not confine himself alone to the du- <
ties of the office but had done- many (
things for the promotion of the moral s
welfare of the city: he had gone out
of the routine of his dut'es to serve j
the city, and no matter how long Ju- )
neau remained a municipality, it j
would never have a more consciencious
and efficient officer than Capt. Mar- ,
tin. whose resignation had been pre
Mayor Carter then told Capt. Mar
tin that he was to continue as chief
of police until such time as the coun- ,
cil acted upon his resignation. After ;
mutual thanks, the council adjourned. ?
SPRING BEGINS WITH
VERNAL EQUINOX TODAY
Today la the first day of spring. ,
The vernal equinox occured this morn- t
Ing at about 2 o'clock. Juneau time. ;
when the center of the sun passed ]
the equator on its northward jour- ,
ney. As a matter of fact, however, |
we have bad 12 hours or more of sun- ;
shine each day for several days. There i
has been enough of Old Sol north of
the equator for its rays to be visible
for more than 12 hours at Washing
ton since last Wednesday. On that
day the son rose at the National capi
tal at 9 minutes past 6 a. m. and set '
at 9 minutes past 6 p. m. At this lati
tude the preponderance of sunshine
over darkness will increase rapidly
until the summer solstice which will
occur at Juneau this year at about 9
p. m.. June 21st. making that day the
longest of the year.
MOTION PICTURES TO BE
AT THE NEW LOUVRE
W. S. Scribner and L. L. Clay, the
new proprietors of the Louvre, have
decided upon a marked innovation for
their place of business. They are go
ing to add motion pictures to the es
tablishment. The pictures will be
shown at the rear of the bar, and ar
rangements have been made to se
cure carefully selected films for the
place. The show will be free.
The committee appointed to secure
baseball grounds has completed its
work and will report at the meeting
of the Baseball Association which has
been called by Chairman B. L. Thane
for next Tuesday evening in his of
fices. Mr. Thane states that if the
association ratifies tho work of the
committee and he believes that it will,
that the entire business will be cleaned
up at the Tuesday night meeting, and
withlng twenty-four hours active work
of preparing the park can be under
way. It is considered unwise to make
known the plans that the committee
have decided upon until the associa
tion has passed on the matter.
THE WEATHER TODAY.
Twenty-four hours ending at 3 p.m.:
MAY WALK THROUGH
MOUNTAIN APRIL 1
The Sheep Creek tunnel will likely
be finished, and Col. Jackling may
walk through the mountain from
Sheep Creek to Gold Creek, before
April 1. If the present rate of pro
gress continues it will certainly be
finished before that time?there is a
distance of 350 feet separating the
crews working from the Perseverance
end and Paddy O'Nlel's experts. There
remains eleven days in which to do
the stunt. For the past three days
O'Nell's men have averaged 2S feet
each day, while the Perseverance crew
is making 13 feet each day or a total
of 41 feet. In order to finish by April
1, the two crews must average close
to 32 feet. It is the hope to have it
ready for Col. Jackling to walk through
and inspect when he comes from the
South. He will arrive on March 28
and is scheduled to leave April 1 or
