WILLOUGHBY AVENUE
COST ABOUT $20,000
Councilman William Geddes was
present at last night's meeting of the
city council and informally gave out
the Information that the great plank
f waterfront thoroughfare, known as
Wllloughby avenue was practically
| completed, but official report is not
! yet In. Automobiles passed over the
l new roadway yesterday evening and
j made the Journey to Salmon creek via
the water level route, although the
highway needs gravel on that portion
passing through North Juneau. Tho
| owners of the Casey-Shattuck addition
are hauling gravel now and laying it
where It passes through their property.
The big improvement has cost ap
proximately $20,000. Accodrlng to Mr.
Geddes the planked portion which is |
built on piling the entire distance Is
approximately 3,000 feet long and the
city has furnished lumber costing ap
proximately $8,000. The balance has
been furnished by property owners
fronting on the boulevard and by sub
scriptions from others benefitted by
the improvement.
That portion of the great highway
that passes in front of Auk Indian vil
lage was built without laying any bur
den upon the nativo owners of the
abutting property and this money had
to be secured from other sources.
Councilman William Geddes and Tom
Knudson were active in the. work and
secured most of the funds for this
stretch. Mr. Geddes has also dovoted
a great deal of his time and personal
attention to the matter of pushing the
work along in an economic way after
the money was secured.

FAULKNER TELLS WHY
PRISONERS DO NOT WORK
The Department of Justice haf ob
jected to the employment of Federal
prisoners on the government roads,
sotely because the department does
not want to incur the expense of em
ploying the extra guards that would
be required for such work, according
to H. L. Faulkner, formor United
States marshal for the First division,
who addressed the city council on the
matter last night. This fact was
brought out, Mr. Faulkner said,
through a talk with It. J. W. Brewster,
Inspector of prisoners for the De
partment of Justice who visited Ju
i neau last week. Mr. Brewster said
that if the Alaska Koad Commission
would undertake to furnish the guards
he had little doubt but that the De
partment of Justice would permit the
I employment of prisoners on the gov
J eminent roads of Alaska.
| The purpose of Mr. Faulkner's ad
dress to the council last night was
to have the city government make for
mal application to the Alaska Road
Commission for the appointment of a
man employed by the commission on
the roads who could bo deputized by
I the marshal's office to take charge of
the prisoners.
The city council assured Mr. Faulk
ner that the matter would be taken
! up with the Road Commission.

ASSOCIATION ADOPTS ,
MEETING DAY AND BY-LAWS ,

The Juneau branch of the Mer- (
chants' Protective Association of Al- |
aska, at the meeting held Wednesday (
night fixed the second Tuosday of each ,
month and 2 p. in. of that day as the j
time to hold regular meetings of the (
organization. Other important busl- (
ness to come before the meeting was (
the reception of the report of the
committee on by-laws, which report
was adopted after due consideration,
and the by-laws ordered printed for
distribution to the members.
A friendly feeling Is being cultivat
ed among the merchants of Southeast
ern Alaska by the work of the asBO- i
elation and uniform methods are be- ,
ing adopted for the extension of cred
it, which, it Is hoped, will result In
good, not only to the merchants, but
to their patrons as well.
At the last meeting a partial list
of delinquent debtors was exhibited
which shows clearly that in order to
protect the honest credit purchaser, it ]
is necessary for merchants to co-op
erate in the elimination of the dishon
est debtor.
This work also has a tendency to
ward economy. The honest patron,
whether he pays cash or buys on cred
it Is compelled to carry the burden of
the dishonest debtor, and for this rea
son it is to the interest of every hon
est patron that the undesirable pur
caser be eliminated.
