Valdez Electric Company JEANIE REPLACES S. S. SAMPSON i - Alaska Coast Company Plan Many Changes in Present Alaska Liner —Jeanie Will Take Run. SEATTLE, Nov. 22.—The Alaska Coast company have announced the withdrawal of the steamer Admiral Sampson on her return from the present northern trip and the placing of the. steamer Jeanie on the run in her place. The change is made temporarily so that repairs can be made to the Sampson. When inter viewed by a representative of the Prospector Frank Watson, general agent of the company, who is mak ing the round trip on the Sampson, gave the Prospector the following Statement: "The Pacific-Alaska Navigation Company, the holding company of the Alaska Coast Company and the Alas ka-Pacific Steamship Company, an- i nounce the purchase of the steam-1 ors Admiral Dewey and Admiral Sch- j ley, which vessels, at the present: time, are in Brooklyn, N. Y.. from ' which port they will sail about Jan.: 25th via the Panama canal for the Pacific coast, arriving in Seattle ^ about Feb. 10th, where they will join the steamer Admiral Farragut on the Seattle-San Francisco, route, thus re-, lieving the steamers Admiral Samp son and S. S. Watson. “The company further announce the placing on the Southwestern Alaska route of the steamers. Ad- i miral Evans and the Admiral Wat- j son (now called the Buckman and Watson), effective Feb. 1st, on a ten day schedule, sailings from Tacoma and Seattle on the 5th, 15th and 25th of each monlth, calling at all the regular ports of call—port to port j schedule to be published later. Be fore being placed in this service both vessels will be thoroughly overhauled j and refitted with especial attention to 1 be given to the wants and comforts . of Alaska travel. The passenger ac- j commodations will be practically re-! built and many new features will be added and improvements made that; will make both vessels attractive to! the traveling public. Both vessels are oil burners and absolutely double-bot tom throughout and are especially adapted, for the Southwestern am. the Southeastern Alaska route. "In. order 'o facilitate the plans it became absolutely necessary to with draw the Admiral Sampson from the run, effective with the return of the vessel to Seattle this present trip. Upon arrival in Seattle she will re place the S. S. Buckman on the Se attle-San Francisco route and that vessel will go into the hands of the contractors for the making of the changes as stated above. Under her new name of the Admiral Evans, she will make her initial trip to Alaska on Feb. 5th. The Admiral Bewey and the Admiral Schley will arrive on the 10th, the Admiral Sampson will sail from Seattle for Alaska ports on the : 15th of Feb., where, with the Ad- i miral Evans, will keep the schedule J until the Admiral Watson can be placed in commission, which will be about April 16th. in giving tne above uetauen ac count of plans we <lo so feeling that an explanation is due to our patrons, j who have so faithfully supported us in the past, and furthermore, it has ; always been the policy of the com- i pany to he very trank with its pa- j Irons and the public in general, and f'or this reason we have endeavored to explain very thoroughly the mat ter of our intentions concerning the Southwestern Alaska route, as well sis j our plans for making these changes with the idea of showing the impossi bility of keeping the Sampson on the run and being ready for the demands of our patrons in the early spring rush. Up to within a short time ago it was the plans of the officials of the company to run the Sampson all winter, but, brought face to face with the problem of making these changes both with and on the vessels, it was found Imperative, much to the regret of all, to take the Admiral Sampson off the run Immediately. The atten tion of our patrons is drawn to the contemplated service for 1914 as fol lows: “On the Seattle-San Francisco route—Admiral Dewey, Admiral Far ragut and the Admiral Schley. “On the Southwestern Alaska route —Admiral Evans and Admiral Wat son, leaving Tacoma and Seattle ev ery ten days. j “Admiral Sampson, unattached, ' which makes it possible for us to keep our schedule all the year round, ns when a vessel Is laid up for an 'till'd overhauling.” Marca Rica Cigars VALDEZ M!OST POPULAR SMOKE INTEQRIDAD'8 BELMONT'S VAN DYKET SMOKECRAFT’S EL SIDELLO’S REPRESENTA’S OPTIMO’S LOVERA’S Direct From The Factory INGRAM & BUSH EXCLUSIVE CIGAR DEALERS.
