Prince of Monaco
Coming to Juneau ,
r
? I r
The Prince of Monaco will be in Ju
neau during the coming summer, ac
cording to B. D. Beattle. who is en-,
gaged in the business of bringing big;
game hunters to Alaska, and of tnak-1
ing arrangements for their sport up
on arrival here. The Prince of Monaco
is recognized as one of the true sports
men of the world and Is lavish in the
expenditure of money along those
lines. He maintains a 250-foot yacht
on the Atlantic, requiring a crew of
50 men to care for it. In his letter
to Mr. Beattie the Prince says that he
has fully considered all points in the
great Northland and has determined
that Juuaau is the best (dace to make
hts headquarters, tits letter' was for
the purpose of having Mr. Beattle
make arrangements for his hunting in
this country- Accompanying the Prince
on^this expedition will be three other
noted sportsmen of continental Eur
ope.
Among other European sportsmen
who will visit Juneau during the com
ing summer will be Mr. and Mrs.
James Morris, who were here last year,
and a prominent Pari# banker. Mr.
and Mrs. Morris were delighted with
their visit last year and declared oaf1
leaving that they would return again
some day; that they are coming so
soon demonstrates that the call of the
North Is Irresistible to those who have
heard It.
Several hunting parties, consisting
of Eastern men of note have also com- >
munlcated with Mr. Beattie for the|
purpose of making arrangements for!
spending a few weeks in Alaska dur-l
ing the coming summer.
FIRE DESTROYS BUNK
HOUSE AND HOIST
Kire destroyed the old Hammond
house at the lower end of Sheep creek '
basin and the hoist house for the
Sheep Creek tramway this morning
and for a time threatened not only the
experimental mill nearby but also the
Sheep creek settlement ou account of
the raging forest fire that resulted
from the burning house. At 7:30 the
fire had gained considerable headway
in the forest and things looked ser
ious. Practically all the men in camp. <
between 300 and 400 were called out
to stamp it out. At 1 p. m.. the situa- |
tion was reported to be safe and what i
fire that remains Is under control and |
will be effectively stamped out before I
the fighting force quits.
The Hammond House was a large :
two-story structure built several years i
ago for a residence for the manager <
of the old Sheep creek mines, and it i
was being used as a bunk house by
the Alaska Gastineau Mining company.
The flames from the burning build
ing caught in the dry grass and under
brush and the hea%*y wind that is pre
vailing carried the fire toward the
beach camp. Before its progress could
be stopped it caught the hoist build
ing and reducing it to ashes swept on
toward the settlement. The hill soon
swarmed with men and its further
progress in that direction was stopped.
According to latest reports It was all
out except a little stretch of timber
on the opposite side of Sheep creek.
IT IS "GOVERNOR

i.lton became Acting Governor of A1
a^ka. This is the first time this re
sponsibility has been placed upon Gen.

NEW NOTION STORE
OPENED IN JUNEAU
Juneau secured a new and promis
ing mercantile establishment when
Mrs. A. Christopher opened the new
store next to I. Goldstein's lower
Front street place. The New Store
carries a large stock of all manner of
notions. There is probably not a larg
er variety of novelties carried In all of
Alaska, and Mrs. Cristopher is desir
ous of having people visit her place
and inspect the goods. She is confi
dent that she can satisfy anybody's
notion about almost anything.
NEW CONTRACTING FIRM
LOCATES IN JUNEAU
McDonald and Hart constitute a new
firm of carpenters and contractors to
open offices in Juneau. They are lo
cated at McCloskey's cigar store, and
are prepared to figure with those hav
ing buildings to erect or improvements

DRAPER CLUB MOVES
FOR PUBLIC LIBRARY 1
J
I
At an enthusiastic meeting of the t
Draper Club held yesterday afternoon t
it was decided to establish and main- y
tain a free public library for this com
muity. In seeking support for the ?
movement, the Draper Club Issued this j,
statement:
"William J. Bryan says: Tho sys- t
tern of free public libraries now being ?
established in the country is the most j,
important development of modern j,
times.. The library i* a centoi- f:om *,
which radiates an ever widening in- q
fluence for the enlightenment, the up
lift and the advancement of the com- t]
miraity." v
"The club will need the support of j,
all the citizens of Juneau in this un- 0
dmnking. which will supply :i long-;
felt want. That the Capital of Alaska, w
should continue longer to be without ((
a public library and reading room11,
would be deplorable. As a oommer-l.
clal center and distributing point for;n
Southeastern Alaska. Juneau cannot L,
cannot afford to be without a library,
which Sir Walter Besant calls 'The; R
greatest educational factor wo have.' i
Not only the townsfolk, but the stu
dents In the high school and gram-'
mar grades win r?-ap the benefit of
this movement"
