NORTH TO F.
Au international excursion from
the North to tho San Francisco fair Is
contemplated by tho Prince Ruport
Board of Trade, and an effort Is be
log put forth by thnt organization to
Interest the towns of Southeastern
Alaska In the proposition. It is plan
ned to charter a steamer?the Prince
j George of the Grand Trunk and the
Princess Magulnna of tho Canadian
Pacific have been suggested as being
available from Prince Rupert.
Tho plans thus far are tentative,
and nothing definite will be done un
til it la ascertained approximately as
to how many would consider the trip
The idea, as far as it has been de
veloped. is set forth in a -letter re
ceived by P. L. Gommctt. of the Alas
kan hotel, from F. S. Wright, com
missioner of the Prince Ruport Board
of Trade. The letter is dated April
6, and Is as follows:
"Although at the present time, no
arrangements have bcon mado in re
gard to roduced rates from Alaskan
points to Prince Ruport for the bone
fit of those intending to make the
trip. I think it will be possible to do
so. after wo get some 'idea of how
many may be contemplating making
the trip from those points.
The proposition has received fa
vorable notice locally, and reserva
vatlons are being made rapidly, so it
is important that anyone who wishes
to mako the trip, socuro their accom
modations early. It would also assist
arrangements considerably, if people
would notify me as soon as possiblo in
a preliminary way as .to going, so that
the necessary allotments of berthing
could be mado for each town.
"At the present timo the boat we
intend to use will be the S. S, Prince
Rupert, provided we can fill the noc
essary guarantee of 150 passengers,
failing In that it is expectod that the
S. S. Maquinna will make the trip
with a guarantee of 100 passengers.
"Tho excursion haB its conception in
the attempt to comblno "publicity at
the fair for the North" and at the
same time to furnish Northerners with
the opportunity of visiting tho fair un
der exceptional conditions as to com
fort and cost. No effort will be spar
ed to make the trip an enjoyable one
from start to finish, and a successful
issue should greatly assiBt in foster
ing that spirit of Camaradie between
cities of the North so necessary to
the welfare of all.
"We trust our proposal will appeal
to the people of Juneau."

of fine land was purchased at Mooseheart near Chicago by the Supreme lodge, Loy
al Order of Moose of the World, and dedicated by the Vice-President of the U. ;
S., Hon. Thomas R. Marshall, July 27, 1913, for the world's largest vocational \
school. Millions of dollars are being spent in erecting and maintaining a free j
school there for children of members of this Order which is also erecting a large
Moose Sanitarium and Home for aged and infirm members. Already about 500 j
children are being trained in the allied trades and arts at Mooseheart. In a re
cent article in the Chicago Tribune, Henry M. Hyde, said of Mooseheart: "A
great farm school which owes nothing to the benefiction of any philanthropist, |
about which there is no taint of public or private charity. A school which starts J
with an annual income of $500,000.00; a school which is owned in common by half 3
a million men of modest position and income." Every member of Juneau Lodge J
.No. 700 is entitled to the vocational education for his children at Mooseheart
which also provides for the care of himself and wife in old age. The Charter is j
now open and a cordialy invitation is extended to all men of the Caucasian race
able to read and write the English language, of good moral characters and believ- ;
ers in a Supreme Being. For a short time only the initiation fee will be $5.
Dues are $3.25 quarterly in advance and entitle you to doctor's services free for
yourself and family and $9 per week when sick. File your application today with J
Dr. Mahone in the Goldstein building and be one of the next large class for in- \
itiation. i \
