JUNEAU TWENTY ONE YEARS AGO A 21-year old copy of the Alaska Journal, published In Juneau in the early '90s by E. 0. Sylvester, was pick ed up by John Winn and George C. Burford a few days ago. A careful perusal of the publication, dated July 22. 1893, throws interesting lights on the Juneau of that time, and Alas kan conditions as they were then. Only a few who are yet doing bus jiess in Juneau are among the adver tisers in the paper, and while familiar names appear in the news columns most of them have passed out of the city's life. The editorial and news columns of the publication disclose that publlo school affairs were among the mat ters that occupied the attention of the people, and in that and other discus sions it is evident that Juneauites thought at that time that they had passed from the prospecting and ex perimental era Into that of a develop ed mining center. Local home gov ernment was urged by the Journal in school matters, and the argument ad vanced wnB one that is familiar to those who knew E. 0. Sylvester as a champion of full Territorial govern ment for the Territory a few years later. Fisheries Development Started. The fisheries Industry and locations for canneries and other fishing plants wore Just becoming to bo matters of local interest in Juneau In 1893, and in the first advertisement to appear In the paper, the profession card of "John F. Malony, Attorney-at-Law," is tho legend: "Mining claims and fishing sites bought and sold." Occupying a choice place among the advertisers appears that of "B. M. Behrends, Dealer in General Merchan disc." L. V. Winter's name appears in the advertisement of "Landerkin & Win ter. Photographers." They advertise ( Continued on Page 4.)
