Gastlneau-Juneau won the 1914
championship from Douglas-Treadwell
in a sensational 1-0 game on the Ju
neau Recreation park grounds yester
day afternoon. It was one of the finest
exhibitions of baseball ever seen in
the North and the most interesting of
the series of fifteen agreed upon by
the management of the contending
teams. Each team had previously
won seven games and each was de
termined to take the last and honor
game of the scries.
The winning run was made in the
last half of the seventh. Hester hit
safe to right: Reid followed with an
! infield fielder's choice which Kertis
i foozled with a bad throw to second and
; both men were safe; they advanced on
a passed ball; Cy Wright, Instead of
| sacrificing tried to kick the ball and
j struck out: Molloy toyed with the
i bat and Hester scored on a wild pitch;
I Molloy hit to first and Reid was nipped
I at the plate; Molloy tried to purloin
I second and was caught, thus retir
ing the side.
I The Juneau girls in the grandstand
I nearly had heart failure in the open
' ing half of the next inning when Con
nors lined out a long one that passed
Reid between left and center and roll
ed into the creek. It was good for
three and looked like a homer. Mol
loy retrieved the ball and threw to
Callen, who in turn made a lightning
and perfect peg to the plate, nipping
the runner and shutting off the run
which would have caused a tie and
perhaps the loss of the game. This
was the best chance the Island lads
had during the game.

the two teams were on the firing line
and honors between them were about
even. Ford struck out 8, and Pittman
7, but the latter walked only one, while
Ford let four get away. The wild pitch
made by Pittman allowed the winning
run for Juneau.

J. H. Cobb, the lawyer of thiB city,
Is a friend of Thomas Watt Qrogory,
i yesterday appointed by President
1 Woodrow Wilson to bo Attorney-Gen
eral of the United Statos to succeed
James C.. McReynolds, promoted to
the Supreme Court bench.
Attorney-General Gregory, Postmas
ter-General Burleson and Mr. Cobb
were mombers of the first class In
the Law School of the University of
Texas. The Dean of the Law School
at that time was Oran M. Roberts,
"tho Old Alcalde," known as ono of
the great Chief Justices of Texas.
There were only fourteen In the class,
and two of these are now Cabinet
members. Another, R. A. Pleasants,
| Is Chief Justice of the Court of Civil
Appeals of Texas. Mr. CobtT naturaly
feels very proud of his old classmates.
T. W. Gregory first came into fame
as a lawyer In the prosecution, as spe
, clal counsel for the States of Texas,
of the Waters-Pierce Oil Co., In which
ho securod a conviction and a flno of
$3,000,000. The case was takon
through all tho courts till it finally
reached the Supremo Court of the
United States, whero the case was af
firmed, and the fine ultimately paid.
Mr. Gregory was tho leader in the
pre-conventlon campaign In Texas In
19l? which In the primaries went ov
erwhelmingly for Wilson; and Tex
as was the only one of the larger
States, which In the convention, never
cast a vote from the beginning to the
end, for any other candidate. Through
that memorable five days' battle Gre
gory, as one of the Delegates-at-Large
from Texas, was one of the most ac
tive and earnest supporters of the
For about a year past Mr. Gregory
has been In charge of tho govern
ment's side In the controversy with
the New Haven railroad.
Speaking of tho new Attorney-Gen
eral, Mr. Cobb says: "His natural
ability, which is of tho highest order,
as well as his wide experience, pre
eminently qualifies him for the high
place to which he has been appoint
$60,000 CHISANA
DAWSON, Aug. 7. ? Tho Dawson
News says: Major Moodle, command
er of the Royal Northwest Mounted
Police In tho Yukon, has Just received
advices from Constable Bowcn, In
charge of the post at Snag, on the
White river, saying a report had reach
ed there that Andy Taylor, A. Beis
wanger and "Windy" Johnson were
held up and robbed of $60,000 In gold
from the Chlsana. The story was
brought to Snag by mushors en route
from the Chlsana. Tho holdup Is said
to have occurred on the Chlttistono
river, on the trail from Chlsana to
McCarthy, and the gold Is reported
to have belonged to Ives and com
pany. The report from Snag Is dated
July 27.
Taylor is well known as the sour
dough packer and trail blazer of the
White River country. He was one
of the early stakers in tho Chlsana
camp, and last year brought to Daw
son the first gold from that camp
and the stories which started the
general stampede to Chlsana.
Belswanger Is another old-timer In
the White River country.
E. Schlnk, Dawson trader, who ar
rived this weok from Chlsana, says
that the day before he left Taylor
and party were getting ready to
leave for McCarthy with a pack
train, and that it was reported they
were to take out $50,000 In gold.
Mr. Schlnk heard nothing later of
the reported holdup, but said that
when the outfit was preparing for the
trip boys at the roadhouse had fears
of bad men being in the country
and some had predicted that some
day a holdup would take place.
Chlsana to Produce $500,000.
Charley Bush, Charley Drake, Ray
Haydon and Lyle Robinson, who re
turned to Dawson yesterday from the
Chisana, report that they heard the
story on the trail of the alleged hold
up, but do not know that It Is true.
Some of the party states Ives was
3ecn hastily leaving the camp with
revolvers and a horse. They say the
Chlsana Is so full of liars and knock
ers that there Is no believing any
tale that comes out of the region.
The output of the camp for its entire
life, some of them think, will be
about $500,000. Discovery claim and
several others are reported worked
out Billy James Is in the camp, but
is not getting a big lot of pay. It
is said he spent most of the $40,000
which he received last year in fight
ing lawsuits over the ground.

Tho last gap in the long contemplat
ed waterfront thoroughfare connect
ing the docks and business suction of
Juneau with tho government road and
tho territory to tho north of town was
completed today. Tho last stretch con
sisted of 650 feet lying in front of
Auk Indian village and reaching from
near West Sixth street to'tho north
westerly limits of the Alaska Light
and Power company's proporty. This
stretch was commenced about eight
days ago and the work has continued
night and day. #
This gives tho City of Juneau a
much needed highway, & water level
street from tho docks and down town
business section vto tho government
road running north from town and
which formerly could only be reached
by passing over a tortuous and nar
row congested road lending over tho
hill. It offers direct communication
to tho attractive territory north of the
city and will offer inducements for
home builders to settlo there.
The building of this street has been
tho dream of many of the older citi
zens of tho placo, but tho attitude of
tho Federal government and objec
tions of the inhabitants of Auk In
dian village have been a sttrinbling
block in the way. Tho city council
immediately preceding the present
body committed tho city to the plan I
and took some first stops toward the
accomplishing of the work but were
halted for lack of funds and other rea
sons. The present city council prom
ised bofore election that they would
put the street through and have work
ed as steadily toward that end as a
depleted city treasury would permit.
William Geddcs, members of the
former city council a8 well as the pres
ent, has given the work his undivided
attention. When the city adopted the
policy of furnishing the lumber as far
as the property owners cared to go
on condition that the latter furnish
the piling and do the work, It was up
to somebody to see that money was
raised to meet the city's agreement in
front of Auk village. Tho inhabitants
of the village of course would not pay
and thero were other stretches whore
government property could not bo lev
ied on for this purpose. Councilman
Geddes and Tom Knudson went out
among tho owners and settlers on tho
property beyond aud secured tho ne
cessary funds and they have watched
every cent of the money expended to
good advantage.
The Alaska Electric Light and Pow
er company built the roadway in front
of their holdings at their own expense
and tho owners of the Casey-Shattuck
addition are buildlug a good solid
street from tho present terminus on
their property to tho government Sal- ,
mon creek road. ,
Plans aro now being considered for ,
providing slips and mooring quarters
for the growing fleet of small craft
at some convenient place along the j
thoroughfare. Already much building (
activity is in evidence along the new ]
street by owners of private Interests. (
The native Indian population and
owners of tho property of Auk village
will proflt greatly through the con
struction of the new roadway. It Is '
estimated that the improvement will 1
increase the value of their holdings to 1
three times its former worth and 1
make new ground accessible for them
besides offering better waterfront fa- ?
cillties than they could ever have un- <
der old conditions. The city is bound
by agreement not to claim title to the I
ground occupied by the thoroughfare i
and to protect the Indians from inter- 1
lopors or jumpers if any should at
tempt to secure possession of any of
the tide lands abutting on this stretch 4
of roadway or parallel to it. Resl- ^
dents and owners of property beyond j
who worked so hard to got the road- ,
way through also feel very strongly j
on tho subject and will lend full sup- .
port to the protection of the native '
Indians In their rights to this proper- .
