The Douglas Island News. ? THE NEWS AT HOME. What the Editor of the Record Saw ami Heard While a Visitor at the News Office. It bus been a source of much grntifl-! cation to the publishers of the News to note the complimentary manner in which this paper is received by the good people of Douglas Island, and in our mention of the many little inci- j dents.that have occurred which furnish j proof of the sincere friendship that the ' readers of this paper have for the News, j we oujy stated what was the truth, and in a mild form at that, yet to many we j know it has appeared more in the spirit of jest than a stern reality. The News ! has taken no backward step, but every issue finds it advancing and adding more readers to its already large num ber of subscribers. The.editor of the Record made us a pleasant visit a few days ago and his bright little paper records the follow ing: "After a grand right and left with the boys we went down to ?eo our old friends, McBride A Hopp, of the great religious weekly, the News, in fact, the only church organ read outside a Sun day school. We had no more than got into the office when a handsome lady, a dream of perpetual bliss, came tripping in and the conversation that ensued was something like this: 'How do you expect us to live without yesterday's paper?' 'Did you not get the paper?] asked the scribe on watch. 'No, we cannot either eat or sleep without the News.' That settled it with the Re cord man. He ducked. To live iu a place where ft newspaper's efforts are appreciated was a dream which we only never hoped to realize and the shock of reality was terriflic." Interviews with the News mau of this nature are frequent?so frequent that we have ceased to make mention of them. It has been our desire and am bition to make this paper a family ne cessity?our wish has been gratified. Yes, women?"dreams of perpetual bliss"?cry for it, children must have it and the aged will not do without it. In deed, gentle reader, our cup of happi ness is full. When Alaska secures two more judges, why ain't Judge Heid in it? We don't know why. The Record and Miner get to this of fice "once and a while," but much oft ener they don't. Judge Day of Skaguay is one of tlie attorneys that has business before the court at Juneau this week. L. G. Kaufman went down on the Cottage City. We hope he will conduct himself in a proper manner while away. Our friend, Judge Louis K. Pratt, came down from Skaguay 011 the Cot tage City aud is in attendance at court at Juneau. '?Dad'' Kaufman is back from the Sound country looking well, lie had a pleasant vacation and took a much needed rest. Miss Jordison did not get the News last week. Her conduct is an excep tion to the rule?she didn't cry, but she gave the News man the devil. Rev. C. J. Larsen, wife and daughter, Edith, made the News office a pleasant call last Friday evening. The religious character of the News was, however, not discussed. We understand that Epstyn,the jolly clerk in the Blum &.Co. store, is put ting in his leisure time on perfecting a patent, which is a man's shirt that can be taken oif and on without unfasten ing the "galluses." Mr. and Mrs. John G. Heid enter tained a box party at the theater last Friday night. The invited were Judge and Mrs. Johnson aud Louis L. and Mrs. Blumenthal. We are pleased to say that Mrs. Mc Bride and little May, wife and daugh ter of the senior editor of the News, are improving in health in Seattle and will probably make us a visit in May. The foreman and printers howled for copy all day Friday, but there was no copy. If you think it an easy task to furnish copy when you are thinking of being the owner of a valuable mining claim, why, just try it. Ed Casebolt was laid up with a se vere cold last week. Seventeen of his truest friends prescribed remedies and he tried every one of them and when last heard from he was still alive, but ! sulfering more from the mediciues than he was l'rom the cold. Attorney Donohoe is having a tustle with the grip. A News mail saw him ? last Thursday and he looked like a ! weather beaten chrysanthemum. We ! were surprised to see him so sick?he ; reads the News every Week. "When we want to know what is go ing 011 over at Douglas aud Juneau, we read the News," said Judg^ Johnson to the News man. Women and children not only cry for it, but sturdy, cold | blooded judges must and will have it. The senior editor of the News is high ly elated over an expert report on one I of his mining claims in the Porcupine. If this good news should prove true, we are goiug to start a saloon and cigar stand where everything will be free to our frieuds. The News man goes to Haines Mis sion, Seward City, Skaguay and Dyea this week. Look out for our write-up in next week's issue. The trip will be made on the Woicott and the man that goes up that way and don't take that boat isn't posted. We were over at Juneau Friday. We were not feeling very well, but a good look at Capt. Crocket fixed us out all right. You couldn't, make a crusty, ill tempered cuss out of the captain. We wish we could say as much of all the captains that sail in Alaska waters. ' i ....GENUINE....
