ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7, 1912 at the postofllce at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3, 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: O^o year, by mall $10.00 Six months, by mail 5.00 Per month, delivered 1.00 ATLIN MAY PROFIT FROM NEW STRIKE THE people of the Atlin district in British Columbia, expect to profit as greatly by the stampede into Jennings river and the Teslin district as the new country itself will. Those in terested in the old camp contend that many of the stampeders will learn a great deal of the Atlin district by passing through it. and that that knowledge will result in further prospecting and further development there. The Atlin district has been a steady producer for nearly fifteen years, and every year results in un covering pay dirt in some new spot. If a sufficient number of prospectors and miners could be induced to give Atlin their at tention it is not unlikely that they could create something akin to a boom there. The new prospectors would have the history of a fairly successful placer mining country behind them so as to aid them in doing intelligent work. Anyhow, here is hoping that Atlin's fondest expectations might be more than realized. Every voter in Juneau should take sufficient interest in the selection of suitable men to manage municipal and school affairs to attend the meeting at the council chamber this evening, and to give the whole people the benefit of his counsel and advice if he has any to give that he thinks would be of value. Juneau is in the midst of the most interesting period of its municipal career, and it needs the best service every* citizen can give it. M'COMBS WILL NOT ACCEPT OFFICE THE Washington correspondents have had a terrible time of it in placing William F. McCombs, chairman of the National Democratic Committee. They had him in the Cabinet until the final announcement of the personnel of the President's ad visers. They have been sending him to Paris alternately with two or three others that they could not bring themselves to dis associate with that post. At last they have him placed. He will continue to practice law in New York city and do politics as a side-line. The fact that Mr. McCombs has earned any honor that the new administration or his party could give him together with the other fact that he is big enough and good enough to grace any post was probably responsible for the insistence that he was to have a high position. That he was offered a place in the Cabinet and the position as Ambassador to France is admit ted by President Woodrow Wilson. Skagway is one of the towns in the North where they have had two well defined parties for municipal purposes. They have been called the "Citizens' Party" and the "Taxpayers' Party." The Skagway Alaskan thinks it time to drop the party alignment and have a free-for-all, with the names of all candidates on one ballot and under one designation. It thinks there is no such sharp division of sentiment on the issues that now confront the mu nicipality as would warrant the continuation of party organiza tions. AMBASSADOR WILSON SEEMS TO BE LOSING OUT THE announcement that George W. Guthrie, of Pennsylvania, will be appointed ambassador to Mexico indicates that the friends of Henry Lane Wilson have not succeeded in con vincing the new administration that he has done his work well. When the New York World and other papers attacked Mr. Wil son the latter's Indiana and Washington friends began a cam paign to secure his re-appointment by President Wilson. At least, they urged, if he could not be reappointed that he be continued at his post long enough to make it plain that the administration had vindicated him. Former Senator Turner, of Spokane, interceded in his behalf, and New York papers say that the Indiana contingent had succeeded in securing the good offices of Vice President Thomas R. Marshall for him. The Ambassador to Mexico had a powerful friend at court until the sudden resignation of Huntington Wilson, first as sistant Secretary of State, the other day. Huntington Wilson was so devoted to his Washington-Indiana namesake that he re fused entrance to his office to the Washington correspondents of those newspapers that had been criticising the American Am bassador. In commenting upon the action of Mr. Wilson in denying his office to its Washington correspondent, the New York World says, "he had no difficulty in visiting Mr. Bryan, the head* of the Department in his office." A Nome paper tells of a surgical operation at that place where one of the local physicians "removed a considerable por tion of all the fingers of both hands and feet." Continuing, it says the patient "stood the operation heroically although he has since been suffering considerable pain as a result of the opera tion." We have always wondered how it would feel to have the fingers removed from the feet. Now we know. It hurts. Whenever the denizens of the Middle West become so tired that they cannot longer endure the harsh climatic conditions of Ossawattamie and Oskaloosa they will be welcomed to temper ate Alaska. YUKON'S LEGISLATURE MEETS THIS WEEK The Yukon Territorial Council will meet at Dawson Thursday, March 27th, pursuant to call therefor issued by Go". George Black. Commissioner for Yukon Territory. Heretofore the meet ings of the council have taken place in August. The early date has been decided upon for this year largely be cause it will give a whole summer sea son in which to do the public work that might be ordered instead of a few weeks late in the season. The Whltehorse Star, commenting upon the change in the program says: "Commissioner George Black is wise in having the annual session of the, [Yukon council held early in the year, 1 as then the entire summer and fall is ahead In which public work can be carried on. In past years, previous to the present administration, council meetings were usualy held In August and the result was that a goodly por tion of the road building in those days was performed late in the fall and after the bad weather set in, when it was not possible for full value to be derived" from the monies expended."

The party had reached Kluane lake before Fisher left for town, but the horses were greatly fagged and sadly in need of rest. From Kluane on to the head of White river, while the trail will be wholly unbroken, it is thought the traveling will be much easier as | no high ranges are to be crossed. The Hamshaw party left here with fourteen of the best horses ever brought North for a similar purpose.? i Whitehorse Star. THE EAGLE BREWING CO. has just completed extensive improve ments in the brewery and is now fully prepared to handle the large bus iness coming to it this season. I In order to give its customers the very best beer than can be obtained, carloads of malt have been ordered from the East and Bohemian hops have just arrived from Germany, duty on which has recently been paid to the U. S. custom house in Juneau. The Eastern malt, imported Bohemian hops, combined with the best water in the world insures the production of a beer equal to any produced in the United States. The brewery has ; been in operation since 1898 and is i therefore a Pioneer Industry and en titled to a liberal patronage. EAGLE BREWING CO.. ?Mar.?22-24-29. S.
