expense has boon spared in getting
the desired results. U is now without
doubt one of the handsomest and
most substantial fraternal buildings
on the Pacific coast, certainly the ?
finest in all the North. The building
the property of Juneau Lodge No. 420,
B. P. O. E. The work that has dust
been brought to a successful conclus-;

the board of trustees of the lodge, at|
an expense of several thousands of ?
dollars.

The foyer and main entrance have
been so completely changed as to;
be unrecognizable. The entry to tho|
bowling alleys has been closed and a
partition built shutting off the stair
way leadftg to the auditorium and
lodge rooms of the second and third
floors respectively. A second entrance
gives access to the stairway. The en
trance hall has been somewhat re
duced in size but is still ample for
the purpose o: the lodge and club
membership.
The entrance to the club rooms
which occupy practically all of tho first
floor Is to the left of the main en-:
trance hall. One steps direct'y into;
the social hall, a large comfortable
room about 25x27 foot In dimension.
A long high arch supports the ceiling
and adds to the attractiveness
of the room. From the opposite wall
of the social hall is found the entrance
to the library and reading room, which
is quite spacious, being of about the
same dimensions as the social hall.'
Boyond the library Is the office of the'
secretary of the lodg'o and nearby,
is the boiler room and heating plant.
Tho bowling alleys are entered from
the social hall and occupy practically
all of the east half of tho first floor.
Very little change has been made
hero except the new redecorating of
tho entire room. A cozy little buffet
has been created from a portion of
tho old foyer and it is also entered
from tho social hall on the right of
the main entrance to the room.
New Furnishings.
The wood work of the entire interior
of the building has been done in a
richly polished dark oak. A lot of ne(v
furniture has been installed and the 1
interior finishings have been entirely j:
renewed in perfect harmony and good
taste. The library is carpeted in >
green wilton: the social hail In brown
of the same excellent quality. Great :
photograph panel^ sweeping the walls i
of tow sides of the social hall contain i
photographs of the lodge membership. ;
Other attractive wall decorations con- 1
sist of mounted heads one of which is !
a caribou, tho gift of the lato Capt
m. Moore who porished with" th<
wreck of his ship Admiral Sampsoi
a fow months ago. The antlers o
this caribou head have a spread o
four inches creator than tho recori
head of the world's trophy hunter?
The club values tho trophy ver;
highly.

and third floors respectively as wel
as all hallways havo been laid ii
heavy battleship linoleum. Tho audi
torium has been entirely redecorated

prove its condition for dandng pui
poses. Great steel rod trusses hav
been placed ovor the stag? span closi
to tho ceiling to relieve tho straL
from the floor above.
The balcony has been remodollc*
and completely changed by the ores
tiou of two comfortable dresslni
rooms. The one designod for th

beautiful pier glass. Tho floor o

DOUGLAS NEEDS A
COMMERCIAL ORGANIZATIOI
Douglas Is a good town. Wo have
steady pay roll that makes us gla
and happy once each month. Then w
are flush for a few days and spen
our money qulto freely. Then wo cloi
up until pay day comes again. Dougln
business mou appreciate the sourc
from whence "all blessings flow," bu
seldom stop to consider ways an
moans to build up tho commercial ir
torests of the town. If wo doponde
for our revenues on transit travo
copper or placor mines, fishing o
farming, wo might be moro watch ft
of our Interests, and moro ofton fee
tho sting of hard tines. The intoroct
of a town that expects to grow ah
thrlvo must bo looked after by it
citizens. It will novor got ahead b
drifting. What cannot bo accomplish
od by tho ofTorts of idlviduals may b
dono by a united effort. This fact 1
appreciated by most live towns. Fo
this reason commercial clubs are 01
ganized. The town of Douglas one
boasted of such an organization. I
did one glorious deod and then la;
down and died. And there was no on
who seemed to caro. Since then ar
portunitles by tho score have lookei
on us and then, lllco the prioct am
Lovlto, they have "passed us by oi
tho othor side." Why not form a net
club composed of every business mai
In Douglas who Is ready to lay asldi
his personal prejudices to pull for hi;
town.?(Douglas News.)
