THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19, 191(5 Read the article from that St. Paul paper in today s paper and then ask yourselves what sort ot a paity could have sent out so disgusting a libel on the people ot tins part of Alaska. By mentioning the name of a certain prominent official of the engineering commission m this article this correspondent leaves the impression that the official holds the views expressed in the story but it can safely be said that the official never intended any such thing. The correspondence is dated at Seward and it is to be presumed that a Seward man wrote it. He says the people here are sore because they could not graft ofl the government. This matter ought to be looked into and an\ correspondent who could have been guilty of so cowaulh and contemptible a libel on the people ot this city should not he permitted to retain the power tor indicting harm on the place where he presumably makes a living. There is no way of telling who the traitor could he. but if there ever was a traitor to his community this is one. The Episcopalian Conference has decided finally to retain the word “obey* in the marriage ceremony. Ibis was done after lots of protest against the idea that a wom an should make a vow of obedience to her husband. There is some strange reason for keeping that word in the cere mony unquestionably. It cannot be that the vow is meant to be kept, for who ever heard of a woman that obeyed a man? Indeed, who ever heard of a woman that did not force obedience from a man? \\ ith all respect to churches the vow should he changed to'iove, honor and boss/ The Anchorage papers are also attacking the Alaska Road Commission but they give the whole thing away when they show that they do so for the purpose of getting most of the money of the commission spent at Anchorage. This even might be condoned if they would only not try to injure Seward in their fight for their own town. 1 he Anchorage papers openly say that Colonel Richardson would be wasting money to build a road from Seward to Kenai lake, and these same papers have Seward people backing them in their fight. In the issue of October 12 the Daily paper over there hints that politics only could give the “two Ford cars at Seward” a road to Kenai, and in the issue of the 13th the same paper says we should not get such a road. People who say Seward is attacking Anch orage might read this and get a lesson. They might also see the motive behind the attack on Colonel Richardson. The following is an excerpt from the editorial of October 13 in the paper alluded to: “Seward is advocating an automobile road from that point to Kenai lake. The proposed road would probably be employed more for pleasure than anything else, to give the inhabitants of the Resurrection bay town a chance to take an auto ride occasionally. Before constructing any roads for mere pleasure, the Alaska road commission will do well to give roads and trails that are necessary to the development of the country. If the Seward people must have an auto ride, let them take the auto car on the rail wav line.” » . _— LKT 15 CONTROL OUR OWN 5CHOOLS The undersigned urges the passage of H U •'* .»t»:.

Congress has passed a leasing law for development of coal mines. Consumers need the coal. Jiut most likely Alaskans will con tinue to buy British Columbia coal for some time. Mr. Albert Johnson, con gressman from Washington, who ha> been to the westward says that the. members of the engineering commis sion have no authority to make any rates. Naturally those taking leases for 1 coal before they spend a few thousand . or few million dollars in opening up; coal want to know what it will cost them to get it hauled to tidewater. They must expect to compete with coal and California oil and transpor tation is one of the main essentials of cost. Since the engineers have powers only to build railroads and not make rates, it will be necessary to get through legislation from Congress be fore any guarantee of rates can be as sured coal and other shippers. -Ju neau Dispatch.
