THREE GUESSERS TIE
FOR SECOND PRIZE j
Three guessers tied for second prize ;
in the Alaskan Cafe navigation con
test. The lucky men were A. R. Jones, 1
of Seattle, a traveling salesman; J. C.
Stanley, the local architect, and F. j
Terry.
The prize Is $15 worth of meals. s
The guessing contest was decided 1
upon the hour of the arrival of the *
Alaska, the first boat to sail from 1
Whitehorse. She reached Dawson at
7:59 p. m.. June 3. The three guess- 4
ers named predicted June 3 at S o'
clock as the date, and were, therefore,
within one minute of the right time.
The Casca. which sailed from White
horse an hour and a half behind the J
Alaska beat her to that place by four fc
minutes, arriving at 755. While the,"
prie winning was based upon the ar- i
rival of the first boat to sail from |"
Whitehorse. the result would have r
been the same if the Casca's time had
been accepted. I

'LION AND MOUSE"
ON SUNDAY NIGHT
On account of numerous requests
ilanager Arthur Foi has decided that
lis Royal Players will present the
Lion and the Mouse" Sunday night
nstead of Monday, reserving the
Girl of the Golden West" for Monday
light.
Speaking of the place the Royal
'layers won in the hearts of Victoria
heatre lovers in general and the re
eption given Miss Edythe Elliott in
he "Lion and the Mouse" in purlieu
ar, the Victoria Daily Times says:
"The Royal Players have won a
dace in the affections of the patrons
f the Victoria theatre not realized un
il the ringing cheers which followed
lie climax of the third act of 'The
.ion and the Mouse' last night were
eard.
"There is no precedent in the thea
rlcal history of Victoria for the mag
lificent demonstration following Miss
Elliott's enunciation of the great
peech with which Charles Clein
irought the most thrilling scene of i
lis most powerful drama to a close,
luch ovations in the past have been
eserved for world famous musicians
nd music hall artists, and the spon
aneity with which the audience ac
orded this distinction to the purely
ramatic performance of Miss Elliott!
as an eloquent tribute to the simpllc-l
:y and effectiveness with which she!
layed the part.
"The personation of the unre'entlng;
elfish old money king, 'John Burk-i
tt Rider.' was hardly less telling,
'harles E. Royal, under whose direc-j
Ion the company's productions are
taged. interpreted the part in a con
incing manner. He is a Dnished ac
or; his ability to sink his identity in
he character portrayal being an In
aluable asset in stock."

BRUNER WARNS
AGAINST "WILDCATS"
Ed. C. Snyder, Washington corres
pondent of the Omaha Beo, and In
charge of the publlclyt department of
tho National Rivers and Harbors Con
gress, which haB 267 American news
papers on its mailing list, at the sug
gestion of Senator Elwood Bruner, of
Nome, has sent a warning out to the
people of the United Statesc to be
careful about Investing in Alaska com
panies that have been organized on
the strength of the publicity this Ter
ritory received in Washington last win
ter.
The article which Is appearing In
many papers is as follows:
"With the beginning of work on the
Alaska railway, for which tho general
government has appropriated $35,000,
000, all sorts of 'wild-cat' mining
schemes will be unloaded upon the
people of tho United States, If they are
not careful, according to a statement
'made by Elwood Bruner of Nome, Al
1 aska. a Senator of the Territorial leg
| islature. Mr. Bruner, who has been In
; Washington for the past four months
looking after several bills before Con
gress In which the legislature of Alas
ka is Interested, said, before leaving
for his far Northern home: 'The peo
ple of the States must fight shy of wild
cat mining schemes which promoters
will foist upon them. It has been the
constant aim of the legislature of
Alaska to keep the credit of the Tcr
; ritory first class. When tho question
of a government-owned railroad came
' before tho legislature It was most gen
erally conceded that the moment tho
; bill making appropriations for the
road had passed Congress, it would be
the signal for the advent of hundreds
of 'Wallingfords' and get-rich-qulck ad
venturers who, later on would drift
back to the States in duo season, with
tho most unheard-of stories of rich
finds, fnbulous placers, and a wealth
of descrpition that woud out-Mun
chausen old Baron Munchausen him
self. ?
"In view of these conditions I would
advise the people who are seriously
considering the purchase of Alaska
mining stock to go slow. Get some
one In whom you have confidence to
examine the property before you pur
chase, otherwise you stand to get
stung good and hard."
JUALIN OWNERS
HERE JUNE 19
Superintendent A. N. Nadeau, of the
Jualin mine, who is in Juneau today, is
just in receipt of a cablegram saying
that Jean Vanophem, of Brussels, Bel
gium. who is the central figure among
the owners of tho mine, will arrive In
Juneau June 19th with a party of nine
capitalists and mining men. Mr. Van
ophem is now in Cobalt, Ontario, in
specting silver mines that he owns
there.
Things Progressing at Mine.
The A. G. Lindsay, arriving last
night, has a shipment of 450 tons of
lumber, rails, cars and other supplies
including a span of mules, for the Ju
alin mine. She will leave Juneau for
the mine tomorrow night to discharge
the freight.
Mr. Nadeau says there are 125 men
working at the mine now, represent
ing a pay roll of 525,000 a month. They
are driving the big 8,000-foot tunnel
in at the rate of 450 fceet a month.
More than 800 feet are already driv
en. It is expected to have the work
completed within a year. After the
first of next year crews will be worked
from both ends of the tunnel.
Eight drill men were taken out to
the mini last night by Capt. Tibbets in
his launch Bristol.
Superintendent Nadeau says the
stamp mill will be working soon.
CONSTIPATION RELIEVED

Unless Rexall Orderlies relievo your
bowel troubles and make you feel like
coming back to thank us for telling
you about them, then come back any
way, and ask us to give you back your
money. This is just as strong as we
can make this guarantee, and we want
to make it strong, because we believe
that Rexall Orderlies are the best bow
el remedy mode.

ing and strengthening them, and make
you feel great. They promote easy
and regular bowel action, help to

ercome its cause. In these things
they differ from old-fashioned, harsh,
disagreeable salts and other physics

worse condition than ever. They taste
like candy and even children like
them. They are particularly good for
children and for delicate and aged peo
ple. In vest pocket tin boxes; 10c, 25c

JUNEAU WINS
GREAT GAME
R H E i
Gastlncau-Juneau 2 4 2 |
Douglas-Treadwoll 0 0 2 |
Walter Ford was the hero of yes- .
terday's baseball ganjo. Ho pitched 1
major league ball, and plucked the
sting of Plttman's no hln no run game <
last Monday by repeating the perform- 1
anco for tho Juneau team. The offi
cial score gives Douglas neither a hit ]
nor a run.
Douglas got one man on third base,
and that was no fault of Ford. Dug
gan dropped the ball on the third ]
strike for Redmond, and he threw the ]
ball over Hester's head at first. Rod- i
mond stopped at second, and went to
third on a passed ball. Ho died there. |
Juneau scored first,In the first In- i
nlng, Hester hitting Jor three bases ]
and Reid following with a clean hit. i
Theer was no more scoring until the i
last half of tho eighth when Wright i
hit; went to second ^n Molloy's sac- 1
rlflce; was held at third on Ford's hit, 1
the latter taking second, but scored a 1
momost later when Callan hit. Reid,
running for Ford, took third, but was
called out at the plate, much to the
disgust of Juneau rooters, when he 1
tried to come home on Duggan's bunt. 1
Hester's center field fly ended John- i
son's only bad inning. i
Wurth saved Ford's air-tight gaino >
by stealing a two or three bagger from
Wood, Douglas' long hitting short
stop, just as It was going out into the
| brush. J
Johnson pitched a splendid game, <
and his support was excellent. Callan, (
who succeeded Hurlbntt at third fon,
Juneau, Mullen at short, Wright, of ,
the C. W. Young Tigers, at second, and ,
Hester at first, gavo Ford a stonewall J
support. f
Callan was particularly brilliant, t
nnd Hester's scooping at first capturod |
the fnns. ,
The real class of Ford's work In the ,
box may be realized when one consid- ,
ers thnt In two out of the four games (
ho has worked in hero only three balls |
were hit out of the Infield. Yesterday j
there were two, and In tho first game (
only one. In the four games there t
has been but seven clean, unquestion
able hits made against him. He
struck out 17 batsman In tho first
game and 12 last night.
Tho performance of the players of \
both tenms aroused the enthusiasm of *
the fans to a high pitch. The effect 1
of the few days practice the Juneau \
team hnve had this week and which '
was prevented before last Sunday's '
game showed in their work. s
The game was about as nearly the
equal of professoinal bnsoball at its j
best as one gets a change to sec, and
It far surpassed the average.
