CLEVER PLAY AT DREAM.
If you married a nice
Sweet girl who had money
And got some of the money
After the wedding,
Would you skip right away?
That is just what one fellow did in
"The Thousand Dollar Husband," the
new movie bill at the Dream yester*
day. But after he had spikked he found
out that he did care for the girl, went
back, was forgiven and everything end
ed as it should—on the screen. Blanche
Sweet was the girl and she was sup- !
ported by a big cast of Dasky stars.
This bill is on tonight and tomorrow

Yes sir, there were twenty-two of
the swelleat gowns one ever spied, worn
by Mme. Petrova in “A Scarlet Wo
man” at the Coliseum last night and
then some. There isn't a man. woman
or child in Juneau that should miss
those gowns. Mme Petrova knows how
to wear them, too. This Metro fea
ture is perhaps the best that has been
seen here for months.
There are about five plots to start
with them they simmer down to one
big thrilling one. The scenes art
magnificent, the cast large and such
a variety of places where the many
exciting parts of this play are laid!
There were big houses last night and

Peggy Hyland as the star, certainly
knocks old King Alcohol and Demon

; perance play as “Ten Nights in a Bar
' room,” only more elaborate, plenty of
comedy as a chaser, well staged and
everything about it tip-top. It will
! not do any hurt to see it, as the Ter
ritory is going dry anyway, so one
might as well see the evils of drink
now as any other time.
MANAGER GROSS GETS
THE BIG ATTRACTIONS.
Manager Gross, besides securing the
big feature “The Garden of Knowl
edge,” which starts at the Coliseum the
night of the Fourth, has taken two
big productions which Thomas G. Ba
ker brought north with him, “The
Eyes of the World” and “Romona.”
1 And right now let it be understood
1 that at the Metropolitan theatre in
Seattle yesterday “The Eyes of the
World” was presented there.
Mr. Baker has the features with him,
and Juneau will see the original here
just a week after Seattle has seen
them. There were only twelve different
releases and Mr. Baker has one which
will be taken through Alaska. “Ra
mona” is the second big production
and that will be shown here at the
Coliseum following “The Eyis of the
Mr. Baker, by the way. has been in
Juneau before, visiting his sister. Mrs.
Guy McNaughton. He is an old-time
theatrical man and is also up in the
movie game. He Is now taking the
two big features through the territory.
With him are musicians who will be
at the Coliseum when these are pro
duced, as special music Is required for
these mammoth movie features.
OR. SUCOEN APPEARS
Even though Dr. picture!
deal with Alaska there nevertheless are
sure to be many things of interest to
Alaskans themselves in “The Lure of
Alaska” which Dr. Sugden will pre
sent at the Palace theatre Tuesday eve
ning next. Some of the picture show
local scenes and should be of particu
lar interest. There is one very amus
ing picture showing Mr. Jackson who
operated the Jaxon rink “catching” a
trout and perhaps it is just as well Mr.
Jackson is not here to see the finish
of this marvelous example of trout
fishing. There is a 'series of views of
the Takue glacier showing its face
breaking and crashing into the sea that
few residents have ever seen so per
fectly and there are other views of the
mines and of street scenes which will
ill go to show that in his lecture tours
of the states Dr. Sugden has not ne
glected Juneau In the least.
One of the biggest thrills of the
series is of the Whitehorse Rapids
where Dr. Sugden piloted for three
years for the Canadian Mounted Po
lice. Dr. Sugden was one of the ablest
pilots in the Klondike days and when
he made his Alaskan pictures to show
the outside world the true Alaska, one
of the first things he had taken was
himself running the rapids. The pic
tures are unusually clear and show
in all realism the dangers that the
♦arly gold seeker had to pass through.
The close of the lecture has always
been the great bit, and even in places
where dog team are not novelties, the
oicture of the dog team travelling on
<lare ice and Dr. Sugden’s story that
iccompanies it are always sure to get
i big laugh. The story is of the meet
ing of Mala mute Rill and Bishop Rowe
—the (list noted for his ability as a
msser, the second for his goodness and
•piety. The meeting of these two men
>n the trail is a scream and the way
Dr. Sugden conjures up all the terri
ble blasphemy that Rill used without
timself using a single profane word

Too bad some of these stars cannot

for they would have as great a recep

ORGAN RECITAL AT
A congregation that nearly filled

recital given by Professor Wells. It
was pronounced by music-lovers who
were present, "the best music they
had heard for a long time.”
Doubtless most of thoffe present

The heavier, as well as the other
parts showed the possibilities and
capacity of the organ in the expres
sion of all the moods of the human
heart—illustrating both the trumphant
joy of the overflowing heart' as well
as the quiet peace of the soul which
has found its goal.
If a recital is given again on other
flrst-Sunday evenings, the music will
include a greater variety of the var
ious types of expression.

Virgil Strickler of the
| First Church of Boston
Speaks at Palace
Virgil O'. Strickler. S. 11.. tnent
i her of the Board of Lectureship of
1 The Mother Church, The First
Church of Christ, Scientist, of Bos
ton, last night at the Palace deliver-1
ed a most interesting address. The i
[lecturer was introduced by Royal A. j
Mr. Strickicr in his lecture said:
Ah it becomes more generally un
derstood that through the ministry
of Christian Science people are be
ing healed of sickness, sin, unhappl-j
ness, worry, fear and other discord •
ant conditions, there is an ever-in|
creasing desire upon the part of the
general public to learn how these
results are accomplished. It is the
purpose of this lecture to explain
how Christian Science does these
things. There is no mystery about
Christian Science healing. It can
bo stated without any reservation
whatever that every person who is
willing to do so may learn how to
heal sickness and to destroy the de
sire to sin for himself and others
through Christian Science.
It is said that thore are more
than two hundred different kinds
of the Christian religion alone, not
to mention the hundreds of otbei
forms of religions that are not Chris
tion. It is a fact that people do not
entertain widely differing religious
believe. In many instances the dif
forences are irreconcilable, and yet
every one believes with all. of the
sincerity of which he is capable,
that his own particular beliefs are
true. It must be 'conceded that, in
the main, all people are equally hon
est, and equally sincere in their re
ligious beliefs. The only reason why
they are grouped together in differ
ent forms of religions is because they
honestly believe tliut through their
own particular “form of religion they
will find the good which they so
[ earnestly desire.
As one considers the subject of
religion from this broad viewpoint
it becomes entirely plain that most
of the people In the world are believ
ing as their religion many things
that are not true.
True religion consists o' spiritual
truth, and not of erroneous beliefs;
hence it follows that one’s religion
is limited to the amount, of spiritual
truth he knows, and that erroneous
religious beliefs are only so many
delusions that serve no other pur
pose than to obstruct spiritual
Christian Science aims to destroy |
erroneous religious beliefs by sub- j
stituting a knowledge of truth in !
place thereof, and to destroy out of!
the human mind all evil qualities
by planting good qualities in their
stead. It wages relentless warfare
against all wrong mental qualities.
It seeks to substitute love in place
of hate, unselfishness in place of
selfishness, honesty in place of dis
honesty. and truth in place of error.
It lays tremendous emphasis upon
the necessity for “bringing into cap
tivity every thought to the obedience
of Christ." (11 Cor. x, 5)) as the
| Bible commands. It shows that the
cause of all disease and sin Is men
j tal. and not physical, and that both
! sickness and sin are destroyed by
! the evangelization of the human men
1 tallty with truth and love. It teaches
■ without any reservation whatever
that the truth taught and practiced
by Jesus, when understood and ap
plied, is sufficient without drugs or
any material means to heal the sick
and regenerate the sinner, and Chris
tlan Scientists everywhere are en
gaged daily in demonstrating any
proving this to be true.
Mrs. Eddy Is acknowledged to be
the discoverer and founder of Chris
tian Science, and many people ask
what it is that she has dicovered. in
reply it can ge said that she has
discovered the law of Spirit which
is spiritual truth.
Mrs. Eddy discovered the law of
Spirit as truly as Sir Isaac Newton
discovered the law of gravitation,
and this tact should be thoroughly
understood. Just as Newton discovj
ered that the movements of material i
bodies are regulated and governed j
by this material law, so Mrs. Bddv
discovered the Principle that gov
erns the entire Universe, including
every detail in the lives .of, men.
That supreme, creative, governing,
omnipresent Mind or Principle is

THROUGH AID OF SULZER
SEATTLE, Juno 2&. The Alaska
Bureau, Seattle Chamber of Com
merce and Commercial Club, has re
cently received u copy of the report
of the U. S. Corps of Engineers,
strongly recommending the dredging
and improvement of Dry Strait, Alas
ku, at an estimated cost of $2,000,000.
Delegate Charles A. Sulzer has In
troduced a bill In Congress author
izing the work. J. U.!? McPherson,
manager of the Alaskjf r Bureau. In
commenting on this project, said:
"The dredging and opening to wa
ter navigation of Dry Strait, Alas
ka. Is a most essential improvement
to the growing commerce of Alaska.
The improvement of this Strait to
provide for the passage of steam
ships engaged in Alaska traffic will
eliminate the narrow and shallow
Wrangell Narrows and the long de
tour via Cape Decision, and will pro
vide a continuous inside passage for
all sized vessels through the waters
of Southeastern Alaska.”
