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 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. Miss Bonner comes
for the benefit of the Ladies' League of
the Congregational church, Esmeralda,
a drama in four acts will be presented.
The work for the excavation ?of the
new water reservoir, which the city is
building for fire protection, is going
ahead rapidly under the supervision of
Foreman Jack Cottrell. The present
plan is for a reservoir 50xSQ> ft, with Q>
ft. walls. This will hold about
gallons of water,

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
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 ,
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
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.
On last Friday evening Miss Ethel
Erickson was very pleasantly surprised !
by a nnmber of her young friends who ,
came prepared to stay all evening.
After adjourning to the old Odd:
Fellows building cards were in order,
at which M. B. Gilligan won tbeGeutle
mau's Prize and Miss Hilda Liljestrand :
won the Ladies' Prize. Th e affair
wound up with a dance.
Among those present were Misses |
Mildred Powell, Hildnr Liljestrand,'
Bessie JohnsoD, Maud Liljestrand. i

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,
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. He is workiug the
mine under a permit from the owners,;
subject to a lease.

the territory whether the temporary
capital be at Sitka or Juneau, but
everybody outside of Juneau ought to
