I CASH COLE'S ARABS FURNISHED SOME THRILLS An exciting runaway furnished thrills for downtown pedestrians yes terday evening?hut no one was hurt and little damage resulted. Cash Cole's young Arabs became frightened a* a salmon that was thrown to the city dock from a dishing boat, and started like a flash. The team raced up Front street turning corners with precision until reaching Main street ' when unfortunately the Pacific coast building stood directly across their ; path. They charged like a regiment of German cavalry right Into the building but got no farther than the desk of P. M. Davis in the Alaska Transfer company's office when they came down with a crash. One of the animals broke through the floor ing with one hoof and reecived some scratches. LEAVING FOR TYEE.

Peterson, ono of Ju nenu's oldest pioneers who dlod in St. Ann's hospital from the effects of kid ney trouble last Tuesday, was burled from the undertaking parlors of the C. W. Young company yesterday after noon. Dunkard A. Peterson was a native of Norway and about 60 years of ago. He came to Juneau while yet a young man, In 1884, and spont halt of his three scoro years hero and in nearby camps. He was a member of the "Al aska '87 Pioneers." E. Valentine and others who have known him longest say that he was a good man?a pion eer in the real sense of the term and a genuine hewer of wood?ono of those who helped subdue the wlldernoss and make Alaska settlements fit abodes of civilization. He was educated to be an architect and was a mechanic of no mean abil ity. After his business career he fol lowed carpentry here and at the dif ferent camps. Built First 8aw Mill. His first business venture in Alas ka was the building and operating of the first sawmill in this section. In partnership with "Yank" Boggs, he built the sawmill at Sheep creek near ' tho spot where the now industrial town of Thane now stands. For a long time this mill supplied the grow ing village of Juneau and tho raining camps nearby with lumber. Establishes Juneau Business. Later Petrson established himself in the drug business In Juneau. He became associated with a man named Schmeig and under tho Arm name of Schmclg and Peterson a drug Btore was maintained on the spot where Mrs. Winn's milinery store now stands. Still later Peterson engaged in the brewing business, conducting one of the first browing establishments in Juneau. This venture was a failure and marked the end of Peterson's commercial career in Alaska. Hewer of Wood Again. After his failure in the brewery, Pot erson returned to his calling of car penter and builder, but he was never again active in tho community's af fairs. Gradually the retirement be came so pronounced that he was al most forgotten In the rush of the new life that came to Juneau with the op ening up of mining activities and it is doubtful if many have a very distinct memory of1 him. He kept the even tenor of his way, working at his trade either in town when work was plenti ful or at some camp. When tho last illness came ho was working at his trade at Dundas bay. He passed out as ho came in?a hewer of wood. Mary, Queen of Scotts At the Orpehum Tonight. Edison's historical "Mary Stuart" in three reels, was surely a masterpiece and warf intensely interesting from start to finish. It was accurate in ev ery detail; photographically superb and acted by one of the strongest casts ever assembled in one photoplay. Beautiful Miriam Nesbitt as Queen Elizabeth and Mary Fuller as Mary Stuart, the lovely queen of France and Scotland, were perfect in their re spective parts. Every' school child should see this historical drama. In addition to the above a pretty little drama by the Patho Co., entitled "The Right Way," with Crane Wilbur in the lead, and "Papa Puts One Over," a comedy by the Vltagraph Co., com pleted the performance. Remember tonight Is your last op portunity to see this class A show Watch for the "Man of Mystery?this Is a vaudeville turn in two different specialties?Saturday night In addition to the regular show. Don't forget to vote at the Elks' Carnival, for you may get a three months' pass. NOTICE. Any person knowing where our ten der Is, notify the Davis Bros.
