The meeting waa very enthusiastic and was at tended by about 350 people. About aeventeen thousand dollara of the money waa pledged at the meeting. Briefly atated, the project is the one that H. II. Snow worked on laat summer. An option waa taken on the Femmer & Hitter dock site on Willoughby avenue, for the sum of $15,000. Mapa and surveys were made of the property and Mr. Snow wont East to intereat capital. An nttorncy In Roston wired Kmery Val entine, who had been working with Mr. Snow on the project, that cer tain interests at Boston and New York were willing to erect a plant capable of freezing 6.000,000 pounds of fish and to expend on It $400,000 If the city of Juneau would donate a site and subscribe for 150,000 worth of stock.

Payments are to be made as actual construction Is car ried on. Stock Is to be issued for the $50,000, but the $16,000 for the site Is a donation. Most all of the business and pro fessional men of the community are taking an active part In raising the money, which must be pledged by December 16. From all reports.

It Is said that the capital Invested before the plant and dis tribution system Is complete will reach a million dollars. 1'p until yesterday afternoon the announced subscriptions amounted to $30,000, and the fund was grow ing fast, with a live committee working on the matter. II. H. Snow, who promoted the ileal, was the man who. with a sur veyor. spent some time In Douglaa last summer examining the water front. The city of Douglas secured options on a number of lots em braced In a block of waterfront. The city council bought the options. When Snow went Bast he had the ofTcr of this free site In his pocket and also the Juneau proposition. It seems that the men with the capital decided In favor of the Juneau pro ject.
