BUNNELL PREDICTS
BOOM FOR ALASKA
COPPER INDUSTRY
FAIRBANKS, May 17.?During the
last few weeks the soaring of the cop
per quotations has caused consider
able comment In Fairbanks, and all
who have any interest In copper
properties In Alaska are rejoicing.
The mo3t recent quotations show that
copper Is selling at 20 cents now.
which Is the highest selling figure
reached In years. Among the closest
observers of the copper market is
Judge Bunnell, who for many years
resided In the Third Judicial division,
where some of the largest copper
properties In the country are situated.
Last night, Judge Bunnell, In talk
ing of copper, said he expected to see
the Prince William sound country
and the other coppor centers boom
ing for the next few years, owing to
the European conflict. The demand
for copper is greater now than it has
been at any time since war wa? de
clared last summer, and it secnis to
be'increasing dally.
Judge Bunnell thinks that the de
mand for smelters on Princo William
Sound will be so great In the next
few years, that it will bo absolutol;
necessary to extend the governmen
railroad or some railroad, from th<
coal field to Valdez or some nearb;
point, in order that coal may bo ha<
at a reasonable figure for the smelt
crs, which must inevitably bo built
.At many places on Prince Willlan
Sound, there are copper propcrtloi
that can be workod at a good profi
while the prices are soaring, and Mr
Bunnell thinks that they will bo pu
to work.
Even If the war should end now
the demand for copper for the nex'
fow years, will be so great that th<
Industry in Alaska will be a winner
Immediately after the war brok<
out, the bottom fell out of the coppei
market and those Interested In coppei
properties were much discouraged bu
conditions have altered to such an ex
tent now that those who held on ar<
Jubilant over the outlook for profits

Yokole Defeat Poddlero
Thoro was another game of base
ball In Juneau yesterday which ca
caped the honorable attention of some
10,000 or 15,000 people living on the
Channel.
It was a supreme, nerve-racking, in
tensely exciting and intentionally ex
fa iliar&ting test of ' the ski-diamond
prowresB of two aggregations known
as the yokels and The Peddlers. Tho
Yokels triumphed after 7 innings of
play, driving Rone Cosgrovo from the
rubber by scoring five runs on one
hit and eight errors. Prior to Mr.
Cosgrovo's sally into tho pitcher's
box, the score was a tio, C to 6. The
final result was 11 to 6, with tho
abused Peddlers on tho short end of
tho score. Features of the game, in
cluded Brewster's stead work in tho
pinchcB, Oscar Hart's great overcoat
stop, Cosgrove'a pepper and Jerry
Gallagher's sensational catch at first.
Blackatone^Zlegler did good work for
the Peddlers until tho fatal seventh.
Wells umpired.

Rain Hurt Sunday Fishing
Tho heavy rains of Saturday night,
which piuddied the wntors of tho fa
vorite trput streams, kept the fish
from biting yesterday, according to
a number of anglorn who returned
wtyh empty baskets. Thcro was ab
solutely "no biting" at tho streams
ncqir Juneau, and fishers who went
farther brought back the samo hard
luck talc.
Next Shoot Tuesday
The next shoot of tho Juneau Gun
Club will bo tomorrow evening, on the
Wllolughby avenue trap range. Sec
retary Prod Bergor, of tho local gun
club, has made up a list of secret
handicaps, which the club shootorB
will compete for tho handsome tro
phy hung up by George Garrison, of
tho Union Metallic Cartridge-Reming
ton Arms Company.
"Walt For Sunshine."
The fans who braved yesterday's
weather to witness tho ball game
have been asking tho managers of the
teams to wait until the sunshine ar
rives beforo playing another game.
They argue that owing to the Incon
sistency of tho weather man's dope,!
that the arrangomont should be un-i
derstood that tho teams would play
when It Is bright and clear, Instead |
of scheduling tho game ahead, and
passing up good weather for bad. j
Organize Rifle Clubs. .
Thane has organized a rifle club,
and It Is believed Juneau and Tread
well will follow suit Ammunition le
given to all rifle clubs affiliated with
the National Association, at a mini
mum cost. Congress having arranged
this in order to stimulate marksman
ship all over the United .States. In
some States rifle clubs are given tho
old Krag rifles, free of charge, whore
the men do not care to Join the nation

The Baseball Game
Juneau spoiled two double plays for
Treadwell by sliding into second. Red
mond onco had to step over King,
and lost his throw as a consequence.
Both teams have shown a lot of the
inside stuff latoly.
Both infields played high-class ball,
yesterday. Callan's work was par
ticularly bright, having five assists
without a miscuc.
There was sonic betting, but it was
under cover. Tho fans prefer no bet
ting, especially opposing betting by
the players.
Brockel, Juneau's new infiieler,
showed up well at second, but could
not connect safely yesterday. Ho is
big and' strong, and works hard.
Lewis and King seem to have tho
number of ambitious baso runnofli.
There woro very few burglaries of the
3ort yesterday.
Kcrtls, Redmond, Wood and Dutton
Shone particularly well with tho stick
yesterday, while Rose, Callan, Baxter,
tn& King pilod up Juneau's five hits.
Treadwell got one more safety than
their opponents.
Baxter got one hit yesterday, but
ilmost had another- Wood knocked
lown'a scorcher In the eighth, which
md shot from tho big fellow's bat.
Carl Lewis split a finger-on his
.hrowing hand yesterday and Baxter
vaa spiked. Fossas was knocked
lown when one of Killeen's slants
taught him in the back of tho head.
Both Ford and Killeen worked right
ilong, neither showing sigs of giving
ip. Tho two pitchers are much alike .
n this respect, as thoy figure that the ]
jame Is not decided until the last
nan Is out.
Rose mado a good peg In tho fifth
nning. to catch Dutton. Johnson had
lit to deep center, but Dutton boat
he throw-in with somothing to spare.
