Assistant. Mr. Steely, who left here
for Juneau some little time back, have

their environment. Mr. Bartlett is
Manager of the Gastineau Hotel, while
Mr. Steely is employed at the Cain
Hotel- and both wish to be remem
bered to their friends.

PICTURE SHOW HOUSES REDUCE
NUMBER OF SALOONS
NKW FORK, Oct. 1—Owing to the
organization of the moving picture
show houses to fight the liquor traf
fic that resulted in an increase iu
saloon licenses, six hundred saloons
have decided to quit the business to
lar.
The playhouses have recently been
waging war upon the saloons by giv
ing splendid shows to Sravr crowds,
thereby reducing the saloon patron
age. This together with the increase
of license- fee, is given as the reason
for closing out.
