?u fee red At Douglas Ppst-ufflce as Second Class Mall Matter. Wednesday, May 23rd, 1906 ? ?? ? ?? CHARLE3 A. MOPP Editor and Proprietor. .. ._ PUBLISHED EVERY WEDNESDAY MEMORIAL DAY EXERCISES I A committee consisting of the presid ing officer of each of the fraternal orders of the city,has been appointed to arrange a program for Memorial Day;, Mr. H. H. Sterling of the Masonic Lodge, Mr. John McCorraick of the Knights of Pythias, Mr. J. G. Zimmer man of the Eagles, Dr. W.L. Harrison ! of the Odd Fellows, and Mrs. A. L. Anderson of the Rebekahs. A part of this committee met last night and partially outlined the pro gram, and will meet again on Friday evening to complete it. As far as ar ranged the plan is as follows: All of the people of Douglas Island mre invited to assemble at Natatorium Hall on Wednesday, May 30th, at 2 o'clock, p. m. Here will be presented a short program to consist of music by the band, songs by the children, a prayer, readings, a short address, &c. Immediately after the exercises the procession, led by the band, will form i and march to the cemetery. It is the desire of the committee that some kind of a floral offering be placed on every grave in the cemetery. To i accomplish this end it is necessary to have the help of the ladies and child ren. Nature is spreading all over the Island a carpet of green leaves, dotted here and there with bright blossoms | and daioty blooms. All will be accept-; able for this occasion, and many will-! ing hearts aud hands will be needed to ? gather them and prepare them into bouquets and wreathes. The ladies and girls are requested to j meet at Natatorium Hall on the even ing before, to prepare the decorations, | as much as possible, and the children j are requested to help by bringing bunches of blossoms and green leaves, j Memorial Day has become more than I a day to do honor to the soldier dead, j It is a day sacred to the American j people in the memory of those who lie sleeping their last sleep in the silent grave. They whose hearts have bled in j sorrow are comforted by the assurance that their loved ones are not forgotten, and grief is lessened by love's labor, performed in tbe simple act of laying on the grave those bright spriug flowers that carry a promise of resurrection. THE COUNCIL The council met Monday erening as ; usual, all members being present. The reports of the 7arioo9 committees j showed that the work planned is progressing. The excavation for the ? water reservoir is well under way; and ; the council will 9?on be ready to ask ; for bids for transporting lumber. The repairs to the Natatorium have been started. Clean-up notices have been posted around the city, and the annual renovation of unsavory places is on. A committee from the fire depart- ( meat waited on the Council and stated i that, at a union meeting of the com-j panie9 of that organization, it had been decided on to hold a grand fireman's picnic at Crystal Falls Park on or1 about the 24th day of June. The com-! mittee further stated that the pienic was to be held at the park so that a greater number of the people of Douglas and Treadwell could attend, i The firemen expect to repair the road and improve the park by their own efforts, but asked that the council build a pavilion at the park. After careful consideration the council agreed to grant the request. The bill of J. P. Jorgensen &. Co. for $17.50 was approved and a warrant was drawn for the amount. All lovers of high class entertainment will l?e glad to know that Mise Grace Bonnerr an impersonator and ventrilo quist, will appear in our city, Friday, svening,May 25.

FIREMEN'S MIDSUMMER PICNIC A union meeting of the Douglas Fire Department was held last night at House No. 1. Committees were ap pointed to complete arrangements for the Grand Picnic at Crystal Falls Park on June 24th. The picnic is to be given 1 by, and under the direciion of the Fire men, but the invitation is to be general to the people of the three towns on Gas tineaux Channel. It is to be a regular old-fashioned basket picnic, with swings for the children, a dancing pavilion for the young folks, and a quiet, shady nook for the old folks. Crystal Falls Park is situated within j easy walking distance of Douglas, ou ! the banks of Lawson Creek. It is a , I Datural park; one of nature's nooks, i protected by friendly bills from cold 1 breezes, and brightened by a sparkling, j dashing, mountain stream. The firemen propose to cut trails, j build roads and move stumps, to fur ther improve the park. The Douglas ; Council has decided to erect a dancing I pavilion on the grounds. The work j thus commenced will go far toward: converting a lonely, deserted spot into a place for merrymaking. DANGEROUS TO NEGLECT A COLD How often do we hear it remarked: "It's only a cold," aud a few days later learn that the man is on his back with pneumonia. This is of such common ; occurrence that a cold, however slight, should not be disregarded. Chamber laiu's Cough Remedy counteracts any tendency of a cold to result in pneu monia, and has gained its great popu larity and extensive sale by its prompt cnres of this most common ailment. It always cures and is pleasant to take. For sale by J. Heubner.

IF AS RICH AS ROCKEFELLER If you had all the wealth of Rocke feller, the Standard Oil magnate, yon could not bay a better medicine for bowel complaints than Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. The most eminent physician can not prescribe a better preparation for colic and diarrhoea, both for children and 1 adnlts. The uniform success of this remedy has shown it to be superior to j all others. It never fails, and when reduced with water and sweetened, is pleasant to take. Every family should be supplied with it, NOTICE To whok r.t mxy concern; We, the uudersigned, owners of the Crystal group of mines, situated at Snettisham > Bay, will net be responsible for any j debts incurred by Barney Heius, for , labor or otherwise.

It makes : little-difference to the main body of the territory whether the temporary capital be at Sitka or Juneau, but everybody outside of Juneau ought to bowl against the erection of any val uable buildings at either place which would inevitably influence the reten tion of the capita] away from the region where it should be located permanent ly ^-Seward Gateway, MAN ?is the?
