A man who owns a number of houses in the city said a few days ago, that people inquired of him almost every day for rent houses. The great Tread well mines and mills fur nish employment at good wages for thousands of men for 3(13 days in the j year. These men have families and they are bringing them to Douglas and : are building up little homes iu the city, i Cor many years Douglas has run along easily and quietly and has made no pretensions to greatness; was simply looked upon as a mining camp and the ?I uneau papers in speaking of the Tread well mills, referred to them as "across the channel from Juneau." l>ut things are changed now and Douglas City is pushing to the front and will so<m take its place, where it j belongs, as the first city in Alaska. This being the case, the business i men and property owners of our town.' are beginning to realize the need of a united effort for the general good, i They all appreciate the need of a unity : ?faction; of organization and of co-; operation. In talking along these lines with j some of the prominent business men of the city we were gratilied to tind | that all agree that what Douglas needs is a chamber of commerce or a board j of trade. One man said, "It is cue of the most, essential things for the prosperity of the town. They have organizations of. this kind in every town in Alaska." Another said, "1 aiu heartily in favor of it and am williug to do anything I j ran." Still another said, "Just the proper: thing, 1 wish you would begin to punch them up." So, that is what we are now trying to do. "Agitate the matter." An orgaui-1 zatiou should In? effected, composed of all the business men of the city, and we think the time is at hand when a start can easily be made, and the necessity is too apparent to require further com-. ment. I Indians and Whiskey. Yesterday morning about 3 o'clock j the peaceable, law abiding citizens down on the beach below the sawmill were awakened from their slumbers by She howls and cries of a number of Indians, that whiskey had transformed into veritable fiends. Deputy Marshal McElheny was soon on the ground aud fouud one Mortimer Austin, an Indian, with a knife wonud in his neck, from which the blood was pouring in liberal quantities. Upon inquiry, the woun ded Indian said that Haider Bob and Haider Sarah had done the deed. Sarah was soon found and locked up and a secoud trip brought Bob. Mar shal McElheuv took them to Juneau on the first boat and lodged them in the cooler. Judge Malcolm came overabout noon yesterday and took a sworn statement of Austin, who is hovering between life and death. Whiskey selling to Indians should be stopped on Douglas Island aud the officers of the law should have the earnest co-operation of every eitizen in the effort to-accomplish this one-thing. Basket Picnic. Sivcn by the Ladies' Social Union of the M. E. Church, to be held m the Juneau Opera Houser on Thursday evening, 23th of May, 1S99-.

C.) Company C, Alaska National Guard. The Douglas Island branch of the Alaska National Guards starts out in a healthy manner and, if the interest continues, we will probably soon have an organization hero of which wo may be proud. Mr. Chas. A. Phelps has been ap pointed, by Adjt. Gen. Kelsey, as com manding and recruitiug officer for the present, or until an election is held and a full staff of officers selected. Following we give the muster roll as signed: We, the undersigned, hereby associate ourselves together for the purpose of forming a military company in the Alaska National Guards.under the laws of the United States and the District of Alaska.

Mr. Wirt, pastor of the Con gregational church of this city was a passenger 011 the Topeka for the south. He leaves for the purpose of making a trip to New York in the in terests of the church and general church work in Alaska. Mr. Wirt is a good, man, an earnest, eloquent preacher and a live, wide-a-wake, hustling business man. He is doing much good in Alaska and his church could not find another man who could take his place. There is some talk of Mr. Wirt taking per sonal supervision of the general work throughout Alaska. If such should be the case, Douglas City would lose him as a pastor. We would much regret this, but no doubt it would be to the interests of the church to make such a change. ^HE Comet....
