Entered at Douglas Post-office as Second Class Mull Matter. Wednesday, June Gth,190G ?? ? ? CHARLES A. HOPP Editor and Proprietor. PUBLISHED EVERY WEDNESDAY PARENTS AND CHILDREN. The other day a little Douglas boy put a lighted firecracker in his mouth aud held it there until it exploded. No other injury resulted than a mouthful of burned powder and paper, and a badly scared and well spanked boy. That he escaped more serious conse quences of his rash act is remarkable. We hare heard it said that there is a special providence that looks out for fools aud children. We are always glad when children are not made to suffer, but our sympathy does not al ways extend to the former. When a grown man so far forgets as to throw lighted crackers at a crowd of children, he belongs iu the fool class aud should be dealt with. A few years ago a utiio utmi nuu dumb boy in Douglas lost his eyesight, from the effects of a firecracker thrown on the street by some thoughtless person. When we think of that poor child's condition, we are led to believe that it would be better to abandon fire crackers as a means of celebrating. Especially should little childreu be j kept away from them. Fourth of July celebrations always | leave behind a chapter of accidents. It j may be that some of the little bright j eyes that are today so full of fun, will! be destroyed and the beautiful little soul shut out forever from the light of; day. It will then be too late for any thing but vain regrets. Don't put dan ger in the path of the children by giv ing them explosives to play with. COUNCIL MEETING. At the regular Monday evening meet-! >ng of the city council, all members were present. An audience granting a franchise to S. D. Chittenden aud H. Stuart Brin-1 ley, their heirs or assigns, to operate a j street railway in the city of Douglas,! was read and passed to a secoud read- j ing, and afterwards referred to tbe; committee on Streets and Public Prop erty. Mr. O'Connor, chairman of the com - j mittee on Fire and Water Supply, re ported that the excavation for the water reservoir would be completed by Saturday evening next. The commit tee was authorized to order the neces sary supplies to proceed with the work.! Several complaints of unsanitary conditions, existing in the city, were made by citizens present at the meet ing, and the committees were instruct ed to take action at once. The proposal of Surveyor Kund to make charts of the original townsite and locate the blocks, &c., was discuss ed, and the committee on Streets and Public Property was authorized to se cure his services. Bids for transporting the lumber for the water tank were opened, and the contract was awarded to James Mc Kanna, at $4.50 per thousand feet. Bills against the city were paid as follows: Dr. A.

The Alaska Steamship Company's liner, the Dolphin, now carries the broom over all the Southeastern Alaska ; fleet, she haviug made the run from Port Townsend to the Douglas wharf in exactly 63 hours and 19 minutes. The Str. City of Seattle left Towu-} send at 1 o'clock, a. m., on June 1st.! Tho Dolphin left Townsnud at 1:36 p. j m. of the same day and sighted tho Se- \ attle coming out from Vancouver audi well in the lead. It was then nip and j tuck between the two flyers clear up to I J Queen Charlotte Sound. In passing ! Egg Island the boats were on opposite 1 sides of tho Island and out of sight of i each other. Here the Dolphin made a ! spurt aud gained the lead, which she continued to increase. She arrived at Ketchikan 2 hours and 30 minutes ahead of the Seattle. The Dolphin lay 2)6 hours at Ketchikan and pulled out just as the Seattle was coming iu. Tho Dolphin arrived at Douglas at 4:135 a.m. on Juuo 4th. The Seattle arrived at 2:20 p. m. the same day. The Dolphin has always been a pop ular boat with the travelling public, and will now be much moro so. Her increased speed is no doubt due to tho ' new Babcock & Wilcox boilers that! ' have been recently installed. Other ? improvements have also been made, i For the comfort of patrons the state i rooms have been removed from the din-j | ing room, which has been remodeled and enlarged very much after the plau of the Jefferson. Another very import ant feature is the change iu the state rooms, many of which have been made . j over from three-berth to two-berth l rooms. The berths are wide and com fortable. Alaskans contemplating a trip will do well to try the Dolphin. I Go to the Eagle Cigar Store for a good smoke. Have you seen the new line of shirt! waists at the Treadwell Store. !
