NUGGET STOLEN; BEING PURSUED Thievei Make Getaway With Boat Fittings From Fernet and Other Loot Some time after midnight Tues day the guftboal Nugget, belonging to Simpson lc Wright of the Nugget Shop in Juneau, was stolen from her mooring near the ferry float In Ju neau and Is now being pursued by Deputy U. 8. Marshal N. 0. Hardy on the gas boat Dixon, who left Ju neau after a fishing vessel had ar rived there with the information (hat the boat had been seen In llsr low's cove, near Point Retreat. Uesldes stealing tbo boat the thieves took a compass and a ship's clock from the ferry boat Alma, a set of flvc-cell batteries from the Teddy and something over eighty pair of roller skates and a quantity of tools from the Coliseum theatre. It Is claimed that those commit ting the robberies arc known and that It Is a gang of three men who have been in Juneau for some time, two of them working for W. D. Cross at the Coliseum theatre. Mr. Cross bad arranged It so they could get grocorles for their own use snd they stocked up the boat at various stores In the city before leaving. The Nugget was formerly the gas boat Jack-a-Dan of Skagway. built in Juneau in 1918 for Mrs. Max Smith. The craft Is 34 feet long and last year was rebuilt and a new 20-h.p. engine installed. The tanks were full of oil and there was said to be enough fuel on board to run her 400 miles. The batteries had been removed from the boat and to equip her for running a set from the Teddy was stolen. It Is considered slmost Impossible for the men to make good their es cape. as sooner or later they must , go Into some port for oil. and every point where there Is a cable or wire less lias been notified to be on tha lookout. The danger, as it appears lo tbe owners of the vessel and the stolen goods on hosrd. is that they finding a boat in pursuit ? may either burn or scuttle the Nugget mid try to make their escape Into l lie woods. Both Simpson and Wright, owners if the stolen craft, and the Juneau Kerry & Navigation Company, own ?rs of the stolen fittings, are offer ing rewards (or the return of the ;oodn. ? A report of the capture or other new* In regards to tl? boat. U ex ported momentarily from Deputy Marshal Hardy at the marshal's of lice In Juneau.
