The Juneau Ferry and Navigation company's new Juneau-Douglas-Treadwell-Thano ferry boat Alma, In command of Capt. Waldo States, sailed for Juneau Saturday af ternoon. Tho Alma will reach Juneau about the middle of the present week, and assume her run almost Immediately. She Is tho largest motor power boat on the Paciflc coast, and the last word In daylight passenger craft construct ion. Description of The Craft The Railway and Marine News, of Seattle, the principal Paciflc Coast transportation publication, in its June issue, contains the following concern ing the Alma: "The .Jma, the largest motor pas senger boat built at a Seattle yard and declared by experts to be tho finest fype constructed on tho Paciflc Coast, was successfully launched from the yards of Nilsen & Kelez on the East Waterway, Seattle, May 20. "Destined for service between Juu eau, Douglas, Treadwell and Thane, the Alma Is a tribute to the growth of Alaska's capital and of her sister towns of Southeastern Alaska. Three years ago a 25-passenger boat was sufficient for this service. Last year a* 65-foot passenger carrier, the Amy, was built to meet demands of tho I growing traffic, and this year, with all facilities outgrown, the Juneau Ferry and Navigation Company placed the order for the Alma. "The Alma measures 93 feet in length. 19.6 feet in beam and 9 feot in depth, is larger than tho recently launched Suquamlsh and, as the old City of Long Beach, now the City of Angeles, Is being converted to steam, Is the largest motor passenger boat on the Coast as far as can be deter mined from local records. She can carry 125 passengers inside cabins and another 125 outside. "As tho Alma will ply back and forth across the open Gastlneau Chan nel, staunchness was made the key note of her construction by Naval Architect L. E. Geary, who designed her and supervised the building. No expense has been Bpared in making her "safe" in every way and she rep resents an investment of more than $30,000. "Four watertight bulkheads, which make her practically unslnkable, are safety features of her construction. The forward collision bulkhead is of steel. Her fuel tanks are of steel in stead of galvanized iron. The engine room is floored with cement and wall I ed with asbestos and sheets of gal vanized iron. All fuel pipes are car | ried abovo the floor and danger from lire thus is reduced to a minimum. "Equipment of tho Alma includes the most modern of appliances. Two 150 h. p. Speedway engines will pro pel her at a speed of twelve knots. She has a steam heating and electric lighting plant, a three-kilowatt com pressor and pumping set in add;tion to a second generator connected to the engine to store the batteries while under way." COUNCIL MEETS AS TAX EQUALIZERS TOMORROW The members of the Juneau City Council will meet tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock as a board of equalization to examine the assessment rolls as prepared by City Assessor James A.
