WELL KNOWN MINER
. DDES AT SULZER
KETCHIKAN. Oct 23.?As the re
sult of a fall he received a week or
ten days ago at Wrangell, C. T. Rey
nolds, one of the best-known miners
and prospectors of the West Coast,
died at Sulxer Wednesday morning,
and his body was brought here for
interment by his partner W. T. Wright
on last night's mail boat. Deceased
had been Interested in several of the
larger mining deals on Hetta Inlet,
having been engaged with Mr. Wright
in opening up and developing a gold
property at Nucwa at the time of his
death. He was a member of the Ma
sonic fraternity.?(Ketchikan Miner.)
lynn canal arrivals.
The Georgia, arriving from Lynn
Canal ports, brought the following
passengers for Juneau: From Skag
way?J. Campbell, enroute to Tena
kee; from Haines?W. Ensor. E. Col
vin. L. Wilkenson; from Kensington
?C. Beck; from Jualin ? Stewart

Hurley, B. B. Xeidlng.
McCarthys home again
Genial George J. McCarthy, Juneau
agent for the Pacific Alaska Naviga
tion Company, is back on the job,
having returned from an extended
visit to Puget Sound cities. Mrs. Mc
Carthy came home with him and they
are both glad to be in Juneau once
more.
HONESTY OF BASEBALL
AGAIN DEMONSTRATED
The total rocelpts of $226,739 ^om
the four gamos of the World's Series,
and the handsome bonuses paid to
the players of both the winning and
losing team, strikingly illustrates the
nancial proportions to which the na
tional gfuno ha* grown. But this
year's series has done miore than
show "the money there is in It." It
has vindicated the honesty of the
game Itself, in spite of the commer
cialism of its management.
To have prolonged the contest
through seven games, with the cham
pionship hanging in the balance to
j the end. would have been worth at
least $100,000 to the owners. As it
is, they have profited little. If at all,
from the shorter series because of
the heavier expenses. Where they
will gain will be In the more favor
able attitude of the public toward
baseball as a result of the demonstra
tion that games are decided on their
merles and without suspicion of
"jockeying" with a view to larger
gate receipts.?(New York World.)

GOLDSTEIN EMPOR
IUM ENTERTAINS
(Continued from Page 1.)
rendered In his usual masterful Btyle.
, MUjs Edith Kempthorno presided
at the piano In a faultless manner and
in addition to playing accompaniments
for various mimical numbers gave
some very pleasing piano selections,
Including "Tristoss" by Chaminade,
and "Flnllndla," by Sibelius.
Miss Crystal B. Snow In splendid
voice sang "Vlaka's Song" and "To
All Eternity" with much feeling.
Mpnte A. Snow sang "My Torea
dor" in a most pleasing manner, his
clear enunciation being much appre
ciated by those standing at a distance
as well as by those more advantag
eously situated.
Under the leadership of Director
Willis E. Nowell, and assisted by the
excellent work of Miss Kempthorno
who -presided at the piano, the two
numbers rendered by the Juneau
Musical Club, "The Joys of Spring,"
and "Good Night, Good Night, Bo
loved," were thoroughly appreciated.
Souvenir Giving.
At the close of the musical feature
of the entertainment the enjoyable
task of presenting each lady guest
with a souvenir gift of the occasion
was taken in hand. Hand-painted
china, serviceable and beautiful,
formed the nature of the gifts for the
most part. And in addition many of
those presont were given boquets and
boutonnleres from the store of floral
wealth with which the place was dec
orated.
Building Inspected.
Hundreds of those present took
occasion to inspect the entire build
ing, after travelling over tho threo
floors devoted to the great depart
ment stores. The passenger eleva
tors were kept busy both in carrying
people to the different floors devoted
to the great mercantile establishment
and to the upper floors of the build
ing which contain upwards of 60 offi
ces all now tenanted by professional
men, government officials, and busi
ness institutions. ?*
The great structure seen at close
range is a revelation to many who
live here in Juneau and have even
watched it grow day by day into tho
handsome building that it is. "One
might imagine himself on Second ave
nue, Seattle," said a man from Thane,
who was wandering with the crowds
along the mezzanine floor of the dry
goods and clothing department. "Yes,"
said his companion from Treadwell,
"or on State street, Chicago."
An Appreciation.
Charles Goldstein, head of the Gold
stein Improvement company, owners
of the handsome structure just com
pleted and also head of the Goldstein
Emporium, said last night that he
could not find words that would ex
press the deep appreciation he felt
toward A. W. Qulst, manager of the
Quist Construction company, which
erected the big 5-story concrete struc
ture, for tho satisfactory manner in
which it was accomplished. Mr.
Quist, he said, broke ground just six
months ago and has turned the build
ing over complete in every detail ac
cording to agreement despite the un
favorable conditions that exist here,
which are naturally detrimental for
work of this magnitude.
CARD OF THANKS
?+?
I desire to offer my sincere thanks
to Mr. Willis E. Nowell. Miss Edith
Kempthorne, Miss Crystal Snow, Mr.
M. A. Snow, and to the ladies and
gentlemen of the Juneau Musical
Club, who, by their excellent musical
productions, contributed in a large
way to the pleasure of those present
and to the grand success of the for
mal opening of Goldstein's Emporium.
CHARLES .GOLDSTEIN.

METLAKAHTLA IS
PROGRESSING NOW
W. G. Beattlo, superintendent of In
dian schools for SouthensterrwUaBka
has Just returned from a trip of in
spection to Matlakahtla, tho largest
Indian town In Alaska. Mctlakahtla
now has a population of botwco^ 600
and 700" natlve\ Indians, who arc a
thrifty and progressive people, aspir
ing to a greater advance in tho scale
of human endeavor. ?
A part of Mr. Beattlc's mission to
Metlakahtla was 'in connection with
the proposed new government school
building for that place which is about
to be realized. Speaking of the mat
ter. Mr. Beattlo said:
"The government school nt Metla
kahtla now has an enrollment of 150
pupils, and Indications are that this
enrollment will bo increased to 200
in a short time. As there are only
four teachers employed at Metlakahtla j
at the present time, a request has
gone forward to the Commissioner of
Education to add another teacher to
the faculty of this growing school.
"Tho secretary of tho Interior has
set aDart a piece of ground 400 feet
by 870 feet, for tho ubo of the Bureau
of Education as a location for school
buildings, gardens, and teachers' quar
ters, and whatever else may be nec
essary in the development of edu
cational work in the Annette Island
Reserve. He has authorized the erec
tion of a school building containing
class rooms for regular school work,
a manual training shop, rooms for
classes in domestic science and art,
and a small gymnasium which will
also be used as an assembly room.
"An architect is now at work on
these plans and hopes to hnvc them
completed so that work on tho build
ing may beglrt^ln the near future.
"At present a hall belonging to the
Metlakahtla Benevolent Society, and
an old storo building are being utiliz
ed as schoolrooms.
"Tho native people of the town are
enthusiastic over tho government
school and speak highly of its worlc
For a long tiino they have been anx
ious that the government carry on
this work and that Mr. -Duncan devote
his whole time and energies to the
church and its activities. They feel
now that their hopes are being real
ized and many of the natives who
have for a number of years lived in
Ketchikan or other localities are this
year returning to Metlakahtla to mnke
that placo their permanent homo.
"Tho town council now have charge
of the water system and they aro dis
cussing plans for the extension of the
water supply into a regular town wa
ter system.
"They have recently installed a num
ber of gasoline street lights which
have added much to the convenience
of the people and to tho appearance
of tho town at night."

A GENERAL SUBJECT I
Our Autumn and Winter offerings in haberdashery are now completely mobilized,
and full lines of cravats, shirts half hose and underwear are at the front. It is diffi
cult to generalize on the good points of these smart clothes; they were all selected for
men who exercise keen discrimination in the matter of dress.
Why not place your order now for the things you'll need this winter. Prices have - ,
not advanced, but \hat may not apply to the future. |T
A CHARACTERFUL DERBY
Every face requires a certain style of derby to conform to it. An inexperienced
salesman may hand you twenty different patterns before you find the one which looks
right. Such aimless trying on of hats is indeed trying. In our store every salesman
knows the style you'll like and quickly select it.
Our winter models are particularly smart this year. If the idea of a new hat is
in your head, come in and let us fit one properly on it.
