GOLDSTEIN BLOCK
READY SEPT. 15
Thl3 morning Contractor A. W.
Qulat stated that the now Goldstein
Block would be ready tor occupancy
throughout by September 15. It was
feared for a time that the electric
elevators for the big building were
lost on the Admiral Sampson, but it
is now believed that the only equip
ment of any consequence for the
building that was shipped on the
wrecked vessel was the plumbing fix
tures and this order was duplicated
by cable instructions and shipped on
the Dolphin.
The two upper floors that ore de
voted to offices are ready for occu
pancy now except for the finishing
hardware that should also be here al
most Immediately. Many of the pros
pective tenants expect to move Into
their new quarters in the big struct
ure within the next few days.
Mr. Goldstein hopes to begin mov
ing his stores Into the new quarters
early in the month, but It is not likely
that they will be fully settled in the
new homo before September 15.

ATTRACTING ATTENTION

good deal of attention yesterday while
the fine weather prevailed and was a
favorite parade for those who wanted
to enjoy the healthful exercise of
walking. Tho planking Is now all
laid and there remains but about 300
foet more to lay until tho turn Is
made toward solid ground. Tho piles
are all driven nnd the stringers laid
and It is estimated that before the
week Is gone the thoroughfare will be
connected up with the Casey-Shattuck
addition nnd furnish North Juneau
with a splendid highway to the busi
ness section.
There are evidences of building un
der way at different points and saving
the tract In front of Auk Indian vil
lage, which the government reserved
especially for the Indians of the vil
lage, little remains that does not
show some attempt at physical im
provements.
