| in the First division and ho looks for
a large pluarllty here for Charleo E.
Bunnell. Democratic candidate for Del
j cgate to Cougresa.
Speaking of the Territory in gen
eral. Mr. Baxter says that he is con
stantly receiving advices from every
section of the. Territory and that
such reports are nil of the right kind
?increasing strength for the Demo
cratic candidate. The Wilson admin
istration, Mr. Baxter says is respon
sible for the large gains being made
to the Democratic ranks.
The tide he says is so strong now
that nothing can head it off. Ho con
fldentely predicts that Bunnell will

HELLENTHAL & HELLENTHAL
IN NEW QUARTERS
The law Arm of Hellenthal & Hel
lenthal have moved into the fourth
floor of the Goldstein block. They
have a suite of three rooms on the
fourth floor immediately below the
U. S. land office and facing the ele
vator. It is doubtful if there is an
other law office in Alaska that can
measure up to the new quarters in
which this Arm is established. The
center room of the suite Is larger than
most office rooms and it is used for
the library and reception room. J. A.
Hellenthal has his private office to
the right and Simon is located in the
room adjoining the library on the left
Everything about the place is cheer-1
ful and comfortable.

BIG FUEL OIL TANK
IS NOW BEING BUILT
The construction of the great 15,
000-gallon fuel oil tank for the Alaska
Light and Power company Is now
well under way. People living In the
north end of town are constantly re
minded of this fact by the almost
ceaseless beating of the automatic
riveters. The bottom is now nearly
completed but it will be some time
before the sides have grown to the
required height. Tho tank occupies
a position almost.abreast of the small
tank which has heretofore served the
company for fuel purposes but which
is now entirely too small.
The company is building now with
{ a view of furnishing a much larger
community than Juneau is at present
with all the light and power that may
be required for general purposes. The
1 steam plant Is of course an auxiliary
I of the water power station. Water,
however, is not too plentiful during
the winter months and even in teh
best part of the% season the company
is using up to the limit.
PAVING WAY FOR
ANNEXATION TO JUNEAU
Attorney J. H. Cobb is preparing an
ordlnanco to bo submitted to the City
Council of Juneau, providing for spec
ial elections to be held for tho pur
pose of passing on the question of an
nexing certain portions of the Golden
Beld addition thnt are now outside the
; city limits.
The ordinance will provide for sep
arate elections, the one to be held in
I the territory to be annexed in which
all of the inhabitants of that territory
will be allowed to participate and the
other in the city where all legal vot
ers will have an opportunity to voice
their sentiments on tho proposition.
It is possible that the owners of oth
er property continguous to Juneau may
do the same thing before the fall elec
tion is over.
ARIZONA AT GRAND

people of Juneau next Sunday night.
Arizona is one of the great plays of
the American stage, and it Is claimed
by experts that It Is even better as a
moving picture production that it was
from the stage.
LAND OFFICE SETTLED IN
NEW QUARTERS NEXT WEEK"
The local U. S. land office expects
to finish moving and to become set
tled in the big new Goldstein block
early next week. The great safe of

DOUGLAS EAGLES
CARRY Off PRIZE
The blrdB were out Inst night?ev
erybody noticed them. They came 120
strong from Douglas Island and swoop
ing down on the great carnival carried
awny tho big prize. It was Fraternal
night at the big show?tho third In
stalment of tho week's offering of un
alloyed fuu. Douglas Aerie, No. 117,
Fraternal Order of Eagles, formed tho
particular point of brilliancy Id. last
night's doings. The turnout was cer
tainly as gratifying as It was surpris
ing to those who witnessed It.
Just about the appointed hour for
the opening of tho great auditorium
for the evening's entertainment the
body marched down main street In
uniform headed by Paul Kegel's well
tralnod band from Treadwell. They
had tho right-of-way over all and
as might bo expected from well-trained
eagles carried everything by storm.
Seventy-five of them formed the
drill team. Twenty-five In each group
wore garb of the three national colors,
>ed, white nnd blue.
Another feature of the gnrb worn
by the Douglas Island . Eagles was tho
miner'B lamps placed prominently in
tho caps of those who wore them.
The drill was a revelation to many
who witnessed It. Tho body of men
were under the personal leadership
of President Joe Robertson, of the
Douglas Aerie and showed evidence of
thorough and intelligent training both
in their evolutions and in giving the
yells of the exercise. One of the
prettiest sights was when they formed
tho "F. O. E." Insignia of tho order.
At the conclusion of tho drill. Mas
ter of ceremonies G. F.. Forrest, Ex
alted Ruler, presented the Aerie with
a prize?a handsome leather chair for
tho Aerie home in Douglas.
Interest Increasing.
The third night of the big carnival
shows an ever Increasing Interest In
the great event. Everybody Is warm
ing up, and each evening things move
with a faster pace.
Percy Smith Is still operating the
shooting gal'ery and taking In more
money than some local nlmrods get
in ducks.
Harry Brunn Is taking In so much
money at the Ashing pond that the
management had to get him an assist
ant
H. R.' Shepard Is still dealing out
candy at the wheel of fortune and It
Is a sight to watch him talk money
out of the fair sex.
Dave Housel took off his coat last
night and ran the roulette wheel for
a long time.
"Dirty Dora" Is really gono and last
night they had a baby whale In the
tank formerly occupied by tho strange
wild girl.
The dance hall seems to grow more
popular all the time and Prof. John
Sumpf'B famous orchestra Is kept busy
all the time.
Baby Contest Growing.
If tilings keep on Increasing, John
McLaughlin will hnvo to get help In
tho bnby voting precinct. The list of
candidates Is long and the voting Is
getting more active all the time. Every
Indication last night pointed to a very
heavy vote for tho Douglas Island
babes.
"Dirty Dora" is Dead.
"Dirty Dora" died from mudnrltus
and confelietic, a complication that is
fatal. There being no one ot her
tribe this side of Unga to walk slow
ly behind the cortage there will be n
quiet funeral.
Baby Whale and Caberet
The baby whale will be on exhibi
tion Instead of poor Dora. * ?
The cabaret dance Is the real thing,
Bowman and Porcelle are going very
strong and making friends with their
clever singing.

AT THE GRAND.
?+?
Tho feature film "Power of the
Hypnotist," will bo seen for the last
time tonight. It is a good film and
plenscd a crowded house last night.
Sunday night "A-rlaonu," tho grout
feature film by tho Famous Players,
is on at tho Grand. A leading motion
picture magazine describing this film
says:
"About two months ago two hun
dred spectators gathered at the Astor
theatro. They were thentrical and mo
tion picture folk, there to see the film
version of Augustus Thomas' great
play "Arizona," produced under the
direction of one of America's fore )
most playwrights and producers.
Thomas himself.
"They were eager to see what he
had done. They were eager to see
how Arizona would lend itself to mo
tion pictures. They were eager to
see how a cast of favorites of tho
speaking stage would appear on tho
screen.
"All sat in silence whilo the six
reels were run off. Then a spontan
eous outburst of applause, which last
ed five minutes, from persons unused
to applauding, showed their enthus
iasm over what they had seen and set
an official vordict of unqualified ap
proval. It was unanimous. There
was no dissenter, no one lukewarm."
Properly to take up every point
in this film would take reams of pa
per. Further, oft ropeated praise gets
tiresome. The man who didn't see
the film doesn't understand how de
serving the praise is, and the man
who saw it doesn't need to bo told.

has been spending her vacation in Al
