WRANGELL AND
PETERSBURG TO
GO DRY, BELIEF
Both Wrangell and Petersburg will
have a second election September 14
to determine whether they want sa
loons. But only those people who did
not vote at the election on May 24 will
bo allowed to express themselves at
the second election, according to ad
vices received today from Ketchikan.
Judge Robert W. Jennings conduct
ed hearings at Petersburg Monday,
and at Wrangell Tuesday, and tomor
row will pass on the liquor license
question at Ketcblkun, where he is
holding court.
It is believed here that both Wran
gell and Petersburg will go dry. This
belief is based on the fact that the
vote cast May 24 was very close, and
that the majority of those who did
not go to the polls wero supporters of
tho dry cause.

an amount of fish which would equal
208,200 cases of salmon.
The affidavit of the North Pacific
Wharf & Trading company shows a
release of 3,653,000 salmon fry and
represents a total of 36,530 cases.
On every hundredth fry released
the companies are allowed one case
of fish free of tax.

15-CENT RATE
INAUGURATED
BY FERRY CO.
A permanent 15-cent passenger rate
between Juneau and all channel
points, effective Saturday morning,
today was decided on by the Juneau
Ferry & Navigation Company and an
nouncement to this effect was mado
by J. P. Corbus, treasurer of tho
company. The company also will
start work immediately on the con
struction of a waiting room on the
ferry approach, and will equip the
forry "Alma" with steel gangways, for
tho purpose of insuring safety to pas
sengers.
"Safety First," will become the slo
gan of the Juneau Ferry & Naviga
tion company and according to the
plans of Manager Edward J. Mar
grie every effort will be put forth
to improve tho service from time to
time. The present ferry schedule will
continue in force until winter, when
a new schedule will be inaugurated,
it is planned.
Low Electric Rate for Cooking
Possible.
If tho plans of the Alaska Electric
Light & Powor Company material
ize. a low rate for electric cooking
will be established sometime in the
near future. The light company is
allied with the ferry company and
during his visit here Mr. Corbus, in
terested in both concerns, has inves
tigated the feasibility of making a
flat low rate for electricity when
used for cooking and heating purpos
es. "Our plans are not yet fully ma
tured in this direction," he said this
morning, "but we hope to carry them
out before long. A low rate for oloc
tricity used for cooking and heating
would not only help the public; it
would help us to improve our service
and sell the over-load of current that
our new equipment at the power
plant provides."
Rate Reduction Will Be Permanent
The reduced rate on the ferry is a
permanent move, Mr. Corbus said.
"We hare been In the ferry business
here for the past thirty years," Mr.
Corbus continued, "and I feel that we
have given 'Gastineau channel as good
a service as the business warranted.
When Juneau began to grow fast
three years ago we realized that we
must havo new and faster boats, and
In our ferry 'Alma' I think that we
have as good a ferry as you will find
anywhere. She is fast, and safe,
and I hope the people of the channel
will continue to support our eiforts to
give you better service, and greater
efficiency in all departments. Wo
have had the plans drawn for the
new waiting room, and work will
commence immediately on its con
struction."
Sell Commuter's Tickets.
Commuation tickets at the rate of
two for twenty-five cents have been
placed on sale at the Ferry company's
office, in Third street.
Mr. Corbus at one time was super
intendent of the Alaska-Treadwell
gold mines. Ho resides in Los Ga
tos, Calif., and has been spending sev
eral days here, in company with Mrs.
Corbus and Miss Mary Corbus. They
will leave Juneau tomorrow morning
on the steamship Princess Alice, on
their return home.
NO LET UP TO
BIG WAR ORDERS
NEW YORK, Aug. 25.? Russian re
verses and the German submarine
campaign have been attended by no
slowing down on tho part of the Al
lies in placing munitions contracts.
Large industrial concerns have add
ed to orders already in hand, and a
number of smaller plants have become
known munition makers. Among the
latter may be mentioned Henry Dis
tin & Sens. Philadelphia, said to bo
working on 2,000,000 steel shrapnel
bars for Bridgeport Projective Co.;
the Sandard Steel Car Company, of
New Castle. Pa., which booked an or
der for 75.000 shells?the second it
has received; and the Pool Engineer
ing & Machine Company, of Baltimore
whose recent order for parts of shells
brings its total business to between
$5,000,000 and $6,500,000. The Balti
more Tube Company Is manufacturing
9,000,000 pounds of brass tubing for
the Allies.
Another Baltimore concern which
has come Into prominence is the
Spedden Shipbuilding Co., which has
been tendered a contract for 1,875,000
shells, to cost about $17 each, bring
ing the total to more than $30,000,000.
The company is seeking to sub-let a
part of the work, and will not sign
a contract until subcontracts have
been arranged. It Is understood a
payment of 25 per cent, will be made
whon the contract is signed.
The American Steel Foundries Co.
is negotiating on contracts estimated
as high as $50,000,000wlth options on
a similar amount. An official, how
ever, does not believe the business
being figured on exceeds $20,000,000.
Tho work contemplated Includos high
oxploslvo shells and sharpnel as well
us heavy castings.
Tho New York Air Brake Company
is also likely to expand its operations
by the addition of some $20,000,000 to
its war contracts, on which a profit
of 25 per cent is figured. It is already
working on orders totaling $16,500,
000, mostly for shells and cartridge
cases, on which a profit of $3,000,000
is assured.
The Baltimore Malleable Iron &
Steel Company has signed contracts
for 700 motor trucks for France and
England, 700 trailers for Russia, and
25,000 Iron containers for powder and
food. It will manufacture only the
parts, which will be assembled in
Philadelphia.
Tho General Electric Company is
understood to have added $12,000,000
to its contracts, and shell contracts
of the Westinghouso Eleceric Com
pany have grown substantially since
the placing of the original order for
$4,500,000. It is working on a total
of 1,800,000 rifles.
By December the Studebaker Cro
poration will have completed over $20
000,000 of its war business, on which
the profit is estimated at $4,000,000.
William Tod Co., at Youngstown, is
doubling its capacity for shrapnel
castings, which it is turning out for
the Canadian Car & Foundry Com
pany. The National Steel Car Com
pany, (Canada), is also busy on a va
riety of munitions, understood to have
been placed under sub-contracts with
the Canadian Car & Foundry Com
pany. Other Equipment companies
which continue to figure largely are
the American Car & Foundry Com
pany, and the Pressed Steel Car Com
pany.
Roumania is said to have placed
orders in this country for 500,000
Manllcher rifle cartridges,. and has
recently ordered 10,000,000 shells, be
ing valuod at $150,000,000, one-half of
the contract going to the Bethlehem
Steel Corporation. Russia is also in
quiring for 2,000,000,000 cartridges,
with very little prospect of securing
deliveries before the first half of the
next year. Italy in the last few days
has bought 800,000 overcoats and 1,
000,000 blankets in America. The Bri
tish government is also in this mar
ket for about 20,000 tons of sulphuric
acid. The most likely recipient is
said to be the Tennessee Copper Com
pany, which is already supplying acid
to tho Du Ponts.
Companies with war business in
hand are steadily enlarging their ca
pacity. The Bethlchom Steel has pur
chased the plant of Detrick & Harvey
Machine Company, in Baltimore, for
which approximately $225,000 was
paid. The American Can Company
bought a. large factory at Kenilworth
N. J? and also secured a lease on the
old Pearline works at Edgewater, N.
J. Shells will be made at Edgewater
and filled at Kenilworth, it is an
nounced. Twenty-two buildings will
be erected at Dundolk at the plant
of the Bartlott Hayward Company of
Baltimore, and a long pier will be
constructed to facilitate shipments.?
