Because ?f the fact that they are terrible dan- j gers to life and limb their sale will not be permitted. Advocates of a "safe and saue" celebration would eliminate the cracker entirely, but such a coarse de tracts much of the impressiveness of the day, for Americans are, down at the bottom of their hearts, a shooting,! fighting race, and loye above all things, the smell of gunpowder. "Where can I get a house?" is the question hardest to answer in Douglas, and it is asked many times every day. A Douglas real estate agent s-aid this morning that he had turned away a dozeu applicants for reut houses in the last few days. An indication of a good lively town, but a serious matter for those who wish to locate here. Why don't some local capitalist build fifteen or tweuty rent houses? Flowers placed on a grave in the Douglas cemetery just before Memorial Day disappeared in a mysterious mau ? ner. Such vandalismcbarged to natives ! might find an excuse, but in this case j it was not a native who afterwards dis played the Sowers. No punishment is too severe in >uch a cast*. AH of t he members of the Alaska legislature have departed from Juueau, and the only excitement is over the ap pointrnent of a United States commis sioner to souceed Gruver Cleveland Winn, who should succeed himself if there is anything in a good democratic name. Something new in life preservers at ! Jensen's, it takes the place of a cush ion and pillow, and passes inspection on all motor boats as a life preserver. Ask to see it when you pass by. Roscoe Laughlin returned via the Jefferson from Tacoma, where he was called by the death of bis brother, Robert. Mrs, Laugh 1 in and son, Matt, and Mis. Bent ley went south on the Al-Ki. Considerable rivalry has developed in Douglas among those who love flowers, as to the first sweet pea. Mrs. Dave Russell won out, when a blossom opened its fragrant petals on Sunday, June 1st. The Douglas Opera House has treated itself to a new coat of paint aud a new ; name. Hereafter thie establishment is to be known as the Douglas Opera House hotel. A dining room is to be operated in connection with the hotel J I Archie McDonald, of Portland, Ore.,, came north on the Jefferson to spend ! the summer in Alaska. Archie lived in Douglas a good many years,, aud wher ever he gets tired of the beat and dust of a Portland summer he comes back for a time. Mrs. McDonald is at her home in Portland. The Civic Improvement Club will i hold a special meeting Jane 11th, 1913s ! at the school house to make arrange ments for the special lines of study which the club is contemplating^ in stead of having just one meeting a mouth the club will have a weekly meeting, oue evening being devoted to mothers' welfare work, another to civic work and another to literary worfc. AU members and others interested in auy one or more of thes9 lines are cordially invited to be present next Wednesday evening. At the end of every six- weeks one of the departments will givea pro gram, covering the line of its study. Billy McCormick came north on the; Jefferson, after an absenee of nine year*, during which time he has lived in Seattle. He is on bis way to Sitka to install a cold storage plant. Billy was in Donglas on that Fourth of July when the gang plank broke on the ferry dock, throwing a hundred or more men, women and children into the water. Billy was on the dock after the crash and when he saw the little children struggling ia the water, he : threw off his coat and jumped in. Be ing a strong swimmer he rescned a j number of the little folks who might tave drowned but for his timely help. ; The First Game The game of baseball played on the Douglas grounds Snnday afternoon was the first of the summer series of ten games to be played betweeu the Douglas Island and Juneau teams. Each game is to be for a purse of $100 arranged for by the management of the two teams. Had it not been for errors the score I would have been nothing to nothing at the end of the ninth inning. As it was -Juneau scored oue in the first aud three in the secoud.and Douglas on? in the second, all due to ragged fielding. It was a beautiful day ? baseball weather waim and bright. Douglas ex pected to win, but the fates decreed otherwise. The boys worked hard, tried hard, but lock was agaiust them aud at the end of the second iuning the score stood 4 to 1 in favor of the dark-horse team from the capital. It was along about this time, or a little later, that Capt. Mausetb, of the Doug las team, pulled off a stunt aud a Douglas fau fell in a fit, which monop opolized the interest of the crowd gath ered to witness the game.. From the second to the end of the ninth neither side could negotiate a run. Pitt man, the new Douglas lliuger, plainly fhowed good metal and you could- see the smoke coming out of Catcher Bob Cout;hliurs glove. On the other haud, Denuy Malloy was at his best, and with splendid support man aged to keep Douglas from making a score, as the only one to get a hit was Luther Chambers.
