BIG STORM HITS
CANNERY VESSEL
SEATTLE, Sept. 5.?Bringing^ 89.
410 case of canned salmon, 1,135 bar
rels of salt salmon, shipments of emp
ty oil drums and 417 cannery workers
and fishermen of the white and yellow
races, the ship St. Francis and' the
kark W. B. Flint, of Llbby, McNeil &
Llbby's fleet of cannery vessels, made
port this morning from Bering sea.
Both report cold and rainy weather
throughout the summer in the North.
On the way down the Flint ran Into a
36-hour gale that gave her a hard
battlo. mountainous seas ripping the
bark's 650-ballon stoel water tank from
its position amidships and knocking
It against tho port railing.
The Flint. Capt Andrew Aa9, with
First Mate F. D. Swain, was stationed
all summer at the company's Koggu
log plant on the Kvajok. River Bristol
! Bay. She left the plant August 12,
! bringing cold weather south with her.
; Half way between Unimak Pass and
Cape Flattery she ran into the gale.
It blewyfrom the west, reaching its cli
max in a six-hour burst of furious
winds and seas. Mate Swain believes
? it was the tail end of a typhoon. The
same sea that broke the steel lashings
of the water tank tore loose a deck
load of empty steel oil drums on the
port side and humped up another load
of oil drums amidship.
Swain, who has been sailing to Alas
ka since 1891, declares such weather
is unprcedented at this time of the
year. He reports that weather condl
: tlous in Bering sea have been knocked
galley west all summer.
The Flint brought 25,<110 cases of
i canned salmon, 535 barrels of salt sal
mon, 100 empty oil drums, seventy
i seven white workers and sixty-five
Chinese and Japanese workers.
The St. "Francis, Capt. J. A. Rosen
: green, with First Mate A. J. Nielsen,
| was stationed at the company's Nush
I agak plant. She sailed for Seattle Au
gust 17. and with the exception of a
minor gale this side of Unimak Pass
had an uneventful voyage, making the
run from the pass to Flattery in nine
days.
The St. Frdffcis brought 64,000 cases
of canned salmon. 600 barrels of salt
I salmon. 170 white workers and 100

SHARICK TELLS
WHY IT RAINS
According to I. J. Sharick. who has
been in tho Jewelry business in Jun-J
euu for many years and who for ten
years kept a weather record for Jun
eau, thd* Capital City, is located in
a certain zone that is ruled entirely
by temperature so far as rainfall is
concerned. Atmospheric pressure has
nothing whatever to do with the pre
cipitation of rain, he declares, and
barometer readings are of no value
in trying to select picnic weather in
this section.
This zone, according to Mr. Shar
lck, occupies an area of about 30 to
50 miles In width by 200 to 250 miles
In length and lies between tho coast
range of^tnountalns of the mainland
and the chain of mountainous Islands
that form the outer wall of tho basin.
The moisture from which the rain
fall In this zono Is derived Is always
hero, Mr. Sharick says ? has been
caught and trapped by these moun
tain ranges of the mainland and the
chain of Islands. It (the moisture)
mores up or down as the temperature
dictates. A warm dry spell sends the
moisture up Just 'like smoke through
a chimney. It remains In the upper
air area until the proper temperature
causes It to fall again as rain.
The temperature most favorable for
rainfall Is between 43 to 68. It hardly
ever rains when tho temperature 1b
above 60, and very little fnlls when
the temperature has descended to 40.
The rainfall Is governed, Mr. Sharick
says, by the warmth of the ocean
and the altitude of the mountains
which cause the varying temperatures.
CYRIL SCOTT FEATURING
AT THE JUNEAU THEATRE
Another of the great "Famous Play
ers' series goes on at the Juneau thea
tre tonight. Mr. Jack Hepburn, man
ager, announces tfiat it will have a
season of four nights?tonight, and
Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The at
traction to be offered is the thrilling,
modern romance, "The Day of Days,"
with New York at night as the back
ground. Gotham high society figures
conspicuously in the play.
Cyril Scott, the eminent actor who
won such sensational success In the
stellar roles of "Prince Chap," "The
Lottery Man." aud other dramatic tri
umphs, Is ldealy cast in the "Day of
Days" as a young bookkeeper named
Percival who has led an uneventful
life until fate chooses him as the cen
tral figure in one of the strangest
plots ever woven about the life of the
metropolis. Percival finds himself in
the midst of a series of thrilling epi
sodes that take him from the lowly
earth to the high peaks of romance.
The story Rets down to the heart of
New York and feels the pulse of the
great American metropolis.
