Phone 297 NEW POSTOfflCE READY THURSDAY The new postoffice building being: erected by B. M. Bobrends on Third street, near Seward is practically completed and will bo turned over to the government Thursday morning, Oc tober 1. It is probable howover, that Postmaster Earle Hunter may elect i to defer moving into tho structuro un til Saturday, Oct. 3, as a matter of convenience in the conduct of the postoffice business. Tho new postof (ice building is situated in a natural focal point for the people of Juneau, and is within easy distance and ac cess to all transportation facilities. > The building is as near indestruc table as concrote and steel can make it?nothing but concrete and stool be ing U3ed in the construction of the building proper?only the fixtures and fittings are made of othor material. It occupies a space 50 feet square and is , two stories in height including the \ high-ceilingcd basement. Tho com-1 mercial style of architecture has been : followed with a view of adding some what to the height of the building when the government has finished us ing it for a postoffice. j, The main entrance is in the center of the building from Third street. A recess vestibule contains a pair of < double action doors which always < swing at the demand of the public nev er being locked at any time day or night. To the left of the main en- . trance and opening from the lobby, is the private office- of the postmaster , and just a few feet beyond the coun ter begins and extends parallel with the front to the aisle on the right side of the building; here it turns at right , angles and continues to the rear end ( of the aisle where a door is placed en tering the working space of the build ing. ] Above the counter are ranged 900 modern combination lock boxes. The money order window and the stamp window are located a little to the left of the main entrance whllo two gen eral delivery windows are placed al most in front of it. At the end of the ^ right aisle the parcels post and letter drops are placed. The lobby is connected with the working space by two doors, one op ening into the private office of the postmaster and the other at the end .of the right aisle. Each of these doors 1 is fitted with solid bronze cylinder locks, as is also the delivery door that ' opens from the working space onto the> ' solid concrete walk outside the build ing and extending from the rear of! the building to Third street. The out- ^ side delivery door is protected by steel screening. The working space is commodious and carefully arranged. Thero aro , elegant cloak rooms and lavatories fit ted up for both male and female help that may be employed by the institu tion. The working tables and other ' accourtements to be used are all of the most modern make. The ceilings of the lobby and work ing space are 16 feet in height and arranged in nine large panels scparat | ed by massive beams of concrete and steel beautifully finished. In the cen ter of each of these panels are Im mense electric globes which shed a light that gives the entire interior a classic effect. The wood work of the counter is done in bronze green to harmonize with the bronze letter box es. The floors are done in terrasso. a combination of marble chips and cement inlaid in different colors. I These have been reduced to a smooth surface by an electric grinding ma- ' chine that has been employed for the past week or so. The building is heated by 900 sur face feet of hot water radiators. The < honeywell system has been installed with the heating plant In the base ment. The building la a distinctively ju neau production. The plana were made by the supervising architect, C. , W. Wlnstad and the cohsJxuction has 1 all been done by day labor under his . Immediate direction. It is doubtful If there is a city anywhere in the coun try of less than 50,000 inhabitants that ( : can boast of a postoffice building the equal of the one Juneau is just acquir ing through the enterprise of Mr. Beh- i i rends.

The Department of Justice has In structed District Attorney John J. Rea gan to proceed at once in the matter and Mr. Reagan will Immediately ask the district court for a mandate com pelling the removal of the buildings mentioned and the vacation of the property. "Tho government has de clared." Mr. Reagan said, "that the buildings that now encumber the prop erty to be a nuisance and is proceed ing to wipe it out." District Attorney Reagan stated that It Is not usual for the government to interofero with tideland holders who ire occupying government tldelands for legitimate purposes unless the prop erty in question Is required for gov ernment purposes. He further stated that the government expected to re tain the watorfront In question when cleared of its present buildings for dock purposes. The Federal government has always retained possession of the tide lands of the various Territories until such Territories became States, according to Mr. Reagan and then allowed title to these tide lands to pass to such States which in turn have sold or re tained possession according to the will of tho State governments. Usually the States holding tide lands have al lowed parties with improvements tho first opportunity to buy tide lnnds at tho prices fixed by tho State in which the lands are situated. MAN ON TRIAL TRIES TO ESCAPE Judging from tho actions of Roinolo Ceasarl, now on trial for his life on the charge of murdering Dominlco Melis, he has more confidence in his legs than in courts, lawyers and jur ies. Tuesday of this week Ceasarl was being given light exercise by walking around in the barracks square in cus tody of Constable King, one of the nembers of tho Royal N. W. M. P. A-ho accompanied him from Dawson. \fter several laps had been completed and when on tho south side of tho tquaro and near the virgin forest, the prisoner darted from the side of his custodian like a meteor and beaded for the uncut. Beforo ho had covered ten feet King was also unlimbering but his feet were in his pathway and le fell sprawling to the ground. Ris ing immediately he fired his pistol in the air at which Ceasarl dropped to the ground and was again on his feet In an instant and going like a mara thon winner. King fired again and this time the bullet ploughed a hole In the atmosphere close to Ceasari's head, and tho latter, thinking a ma chine gun was at work, dropped to the ground and waited until King reached him, when both pursued and pursuer wended their way back to the barracks puffing like exhausted freight engines. Since that time Mr. Ceasari has obtained fresh air through i crack in the wall.?Whitehorse Star. Special sale on Fountain Syringes and hot water bottles. 25 per cent discount for this week only.
