The seizure of American ships by the British government is a matter
which might have very serious consequences. The intention of the allied
powers to prevent this country from taking advantage of the war to build up
its merchant marine by buying German ships is rather strange to say the
least of it. It seems to be such an awfully selfish procedure. It reminds one
of the action of some beach comber who tries to keep everyone else aw’ay
from securing any of the valuable wreckage washed ashore.
In the present cool moment no possibility seems to be further away than
a war between this country and Britain and France. The present govern
ment of the British empire, aside altogether from considerations relating
to the present war, is one of the finest and most liberal in the world. Indeed,
strange as it may sound, the Liberal government of Asquith, Lloyd George
und their colleagues is actually superior in some ways to the government of
France which is really a bureaucracy rather than a republic and the con
templation of war between such a government and the l nited States looks
like a mental monstrosity, but constant irritation brings about strange re
sults and the continued seizure of ships might very well supply such an
If the British only seized ships that had always been American on the
plea that they were supplying the enemy the matter would look not half as
bad as the capture of ships taken front German register, for the seizure of
the latter is evidently the means adopted to prevent this country in a most
high-handed manner from doing what it likes with ships in its own waters.
Such a procedure is even more impertinent than the demand that the l nited
states could not conduct the affairs of the Panama canal as it thought fit.
A radical revulsion of feeling must occur in this country however, before
war between the two great English speaking people could become a possibi
lity. Nothing is so terrible as the thought of shooting men who speak the
same language and who almost appear to he the same people, but the Civil
*var is a terrible example of what danger exists at all times of a rupture
between kindred people.
It is strange what effect a difference in language can exercise. Each
nationality rather despises the other if it has a ditferent tongue. I.ike a lot
of childen we have the idea that a man who does not act and speak as we do
must be inferior. For this reason a war against a nation which has a strange
vocabularlv never looks as had as a war with people who talk like yourself.
The further off people are and the less understood their language the less
vou are interested in them. To kill Chinamen is nothing . Io kill a lurk
is hardly much more. Io kill a Russian is a trifle worse. Io kill 1 rench
men begins to look bad and to kill an Englishman, an Irishman or a Scotch
man or a Canadian gives one a decidedly creepy feeling. But, “there is no
iage like love to hatred turned."
RUN OF LIEGE AND N VMl'R
BEDLl.W Oct. 20.—The following
descruptions of the devastation at
Liege are translated from accounts
in the Tageblatt.
“We reached Liege on the evening
of a stormy day. We traveled through
streets where the smoke of burned
houses was still curling upward^
streets that showed no signs of life.
Patrols marched through the city.
The beautiful shops across from the
university were a field of ruins. 1 was
told that two nights before, on Aug.
21st, shots came from these shops as
if by prearrangement. The inhabit
ant of the houses were dragged out,
the women were torn from the men,
and whoever had a weapon in his
hands was shot. In a few minutes the
streets was sown with corpses. The
houses were set on fire. %.
“Eye-witnesses described for me»
the details of the conquest of Liege.
Loucin, the strongest fort, was bom
bared by the newest Krupp guns,
which were stationed in the market
place, in the middle of the city. Every
window pane in the vicinity was
broken by the concussion, and pieces
of roof fell from some of the houses.
The fort soon surrendered. A division
of Jaeger were the first men to enter
the fort. The destruction was terri
ble. About 400 corpse lay piled in
side the stone walls. The stench w'as
unbearable. About 200 wounded were
counted. The only man uninjured was
the commandant. A wounded man,
who evidently was about to be operat
ed on, lay in the lazarett. He had been
killed by a shell. Liege had altogether
thirteen forts. Nine were taken by
infantry storm, the others were re
duced by artillery. The forts are be
ing repaired for German use by the
inhabitants of the city who get six
franc* a day for their work.”
George R. Gosliaw
To the Voters of the Third Division:
As it is impossible for me at this time, owing to the close of the
mining and business season at this placer camp, to come before you
in person, I find it necessary to make this announcement through the
medium of the press.
I desire your vote for Senator of the Territorial Legislature, from
the Third Division, at the Election on Tuesday, November the
My friends have not urged me to seek this office, nor does the
office seek me, I SEEK THE OFFICE, and I want your support and
I am solely responsible for my candidacy, and have made no
pledges or promises to any individual, party or concern, and if elect
ed will go to Juneau, absolutely unhampered with ties of any kind;
to do that which will advance the interests of the whole people of
Alaska:—not to go there and vote “aye and nay” during the session,
but to work with a will and a knowledge of affairs, gained from a
considerable experience, especially in this Division, and continue such
work, throughout the year and entire term of office.
If you feel that you can NOT honestly and sincerely cast your
ballot for any of the other candidates for this office, THEN VOTE
FOR ME. Yours very truly,
GEORGE R. GOSHAW.
