PUBLISHED EVERY WEDNESDAY As election day draws nearer, the in terest and excitement increases. In some cases the enthusiasm not only bubbles, but boils. It is a good sign when men of all classes and occupa tions take an active, vital interest in municipal affairs. Much discussion can only reveal the truth. Douglas surely has a faculty for waking up at these times, and we have no hesitancy in stating that the judgment of the voters may be depended on to lead them to a careful and just decision, in the majority of cases. The first number of "The Alaska Monthly", an illustrated magazine pub lished at Juueau, is at haud. It con tains half-tone engravings of such prominent pioneer citizens as Joe Juneau, Dick Harris, O. L. Sandstone, J no. G. Heid and Henry States. It has departments devoted to such iDtresting matters as Alaskan agriculture, min ing, railroads* fish, shipping and Si washes. As a magazine, this publica tion finds the field clear. The pro prietors have no reason to feel ashamed of the first number. GOV. HOGGATTS RECEPTl ON When Gov. Hoggatt returns to bis home in Southeastern Alaska, he will be received in a manner that will no doubt be a source of gratification to him, and an indication of the warm hearted patriotic enthusiasm of the people in this section of Uncle Sam's domain. Last Saturday night a committee of thirty representatives of the three towns on Gastineaux channel, met at the Chamber of Commerce rooms at Juneau, and there perfected plans for the grandest reception ever given to any man in Alaska. The affair is to be held on Douglas Island, at Treadwell City, at the Treadwell Club building. The plan comprises a reception, ball, and banquet. It is to be a popular demonstration, and everybody is to be invited. It is the plan to provide the new governor an opportunity to meet and shake hands with the people. At the meeting held last Saturday, Mr. H. P. Stow, assistant;.superintend ent of the Treadwell mines, was elected President: W. W. Shorthill, Secretary: John F. Malony, Vice President; and B. M. Behrends, Treasurer. Committees were appointed, as fol lows: ? tt I-* m Executive Committee; ju. r. oiuw Chairman, Bach, Stubbing Duckworth Willis, Young and Hammond.

Anderson 6 00 Douglas Island News 60 00 Marshal McDonald reported to the council the eatire outlines of a plan to construct a large reservoir on the hill above town for water for fire purposes. The plan provides for the construction of a dam across Bear creek abd a pipe line into the city. An expert has given an opinion that a reservoir, capable of holding half a million gallons of water, could be constructed at a cost of not to exceed p thousand dollars. The plan is worthy of careful consideration. A GREAT SUBJECT "Does Death End All?" "Involution and Evolution, or Does Death End All? and Is Instinct Immortal?" The dis cussion of this theme will be a practi cal reply to a variety of questions asked by evolutionists and materialists on Douglas Island. It will be shown in the disc.ussiou of this subject, in the Cougregational church on Sunday evening, April 1st, at 8 o'clock: That is life which causes organization, and not organization which causes life. Matter in living tissues is directed, controlled, arranged, so as to subserve the most varied and complex purposes. Only matter and mind exist in the uni verse. Matter in living tissues must therefore be arranged either by matter or mind. No material properties or forces are kuown to be capable of pro ducing the arrangements which exist in living tissues. In the present state of kn Avledge,these arrangements must be referred to mind or life as their source. Bioplasm exhibits peculiar actions found nowhere in not living matter. It exhibits different actions iu every different animal and vegetable tissue.' For each class of the peculiar actions there must be a peculiar cause. That cause must be either matter or mind. But the cause has qualities which cannot, without self-contradic tion, be attributed to inert matter. It must therefore exist in the life, or , an immaterial element of the organiza j tion. It is plain that before matter which forms the tissues has entered j the organization, the plan of the tis sues is involved in the earliest bio plasts. There is forcast involved, therefore, in the action of the bio 1 plasts. Forcast is not an attribute of matter, but of mind. An immaterial element exists therefore, in living or 1 ganisms. It is hoped the same intense interest will again be manifest at this service as was last Sunday in a > crowded house. Rev. D. Holford, B.D., ' Pastor. i k I [ NOTICE TO CREDITORS Is xks commissioner's court, junk al precinct, division no. 1, district of al aska, sitting in probate.
