ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. .'1-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7, 1012 at the postolllce at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1570. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: Q?e year, by mail $10.00' Six months, by mail 5.00 Per month, delivered ... l.Oo "WHERE THERE IS A WILL THERE IS A WAY" k^Y/HERE there is a will there is away," is an old saying, \A' and it often has been proved to be a true saying by the men of the North. The people of Juneau are going to demonstrate its vitality again. This city is confronted with a crying need for a new school house. There is not enough money in the treasury with which to build it. and the law-making au thorities have refused municipalities the authority 10 create in debtedness. The situation had to be met some other way. The citizens of Juneau have the will to meet it. and the school board discovered the way. The people have set their approval upon the "way." and a NEW SCHOOL HOUSE WILL BE BUILT. The plan is for enterprising citizens to pledge their credit as security for the money needed, and to depend upon the good faith of the community to protect them from individual loss.! Of course, the dependence will not be in vain. That goes with-' out saying. Be it marked down to the credit of the citizenry of the North there has never been default in the performance of a public obligation by any Alaska community. While this plan of the citizens of Juneau is not entirely new, it is worth much to know that the same old spirit that has met seemingly impossible conditions here in Juneau and in other cities of Alaska is still a thing of life. Fairbanks built a school house because those in that town having money took a chance on the honesty of their community. Under similar conditions the people of Skagway put in a munici pal water works. Now the people of Juneau are going to come to the front and build a school house, and when time demands it. they are going to meet any municipal problem that might present itself in the same manner, just as they solved the fuel, the munici pal dock, and other problems, each in its time. A grandson of the great Napoleon has been discovered work ing in a Los Angeles lumber yard. At that he is doing more for his age than he would be doing were he attempting to follow the steps of his illustrious progenitor. LET rs ACT UPON MR. M'BRIDE'S SUGGESTION THE suggestion made to the people of Juneau through The Empire the other day by John C. McBride that the time is at hand when the municipality should improve its fire de partment is timely. The plan proposed by Mr. McBride. also, is along lines that are sound. This does not mean that Juneau has not an efficient volunteer fire department, because the re verse is true. The men that make up that organization have given too much good service to the community to be criticised in any manner, but they should have the equipment and the op portunity to do better. The department should be properly housed, and there should be two or three paid men so that day or night there would one or more men on the ground, caring for the appa ratus and prepared to sound an alarm on the instant of notice that would indicate to all members of the department the location of the fire. Horses should be provided to quickly convey the appa ratus wherever needed. This is a matter of importance if this city is to reap the re ward that conditions warrant the people in expecting. The peo ple of Juneau are expecting capital to come here for investment in new industries, buildings, etc. There is ample employment here for it. The capital is ready to come. We want it to come. We need it. as all growing towns need it. It is up to the people to otTer every inducement possible to bring it here. The nature of the fire protection afforded by a community to those whose money is placed in buildings, machinery and stocks of goods is one of the first things the would-be investor looks into. The improvements suggested by Mr. McBride need not af fect the organization of the fire department at all. They could be so arranged as to give its officers and members simply a better chance to do the work that they are called upon to perform. Let us act upon Mr. McBride's suggestion, and get busy. The only Chinamen ever about the premises when a battle between Chinese tongs was fought are those that were shot so bad that they required assistance. Of course, they were inno cent by-standers. WILLIAM PIGOTT?ALASKA'S FRIEND NO ONE that knows William Pigott will be surprised to read his statement that he is not and will not be a candidate for the governorship or for any other federal office in Alaska. Mr. Pigott knows Alaska and its people, and he is a democrat? with a small "d" as well as a capital "D." He is thoroughly in sympathy with the spirit of the people that fought for self-gov ernment until they got their own legislature, and he believes their self-government should not begin and end with the law making power, but that it should extend to all branches of gov ernment in the Territory. Mr. Pigott is one of those friends that Alaska has in the States that have done real work for it. He has done it, without reward or hope of reward, solely from his interest in having done that which should be done. Mr. Pigott is one of Seattle's best citizens and one of the best Democrats in the West. It is a good thing Weatherman Moore resigned Saturday. He can still come to Alaska. He probably has no friends else where in the Nation. Count upon the average American political meeting to find candidates for office if it is up to it to do so. Yesterday there was not a candidate for office in Juneau. Today there are twen ty?eighteen for the city council and two for the school board. The telegraph editor was confronted with a task yesterday such as try men's nerve. The dispatches that came over the wire indicated that a Spanish-American President had died a nat ure1 death. He courageously, whether wisely or not time will tell, printed it. I ? 11 n i m 11111111111 n n m iiH-H t? Forced Out of Business ;;j By owner of Building. Had no lease.

A few years ago a sad attempt was made to beautify our gold coins. Then came the celebrated Lin coln cent. Now we have the buffalo nickel. Whatever may be said of the art expressed by these pieces, they are more like medals, tokens, bangles, fobs or beer checks than money. Their inscriptions are indistinct and \. ith a little wear will disappear. Our coinage ought not to be left wholly to the caprice of artists. Legibility should be the first consideration, with ornamentation second. There should be absolutely no uncertainty as to de nominations. The Liberty head used to be con : idt red appropriate for our coins. If an act of Congress is neecssary to re store it and keep it. that body should be heard from without delay. P. I).

Winters, Nome pioneer who sold to the Pioneer Mining Com pany the famous Portland bench prop erties on Little river, that-gavc second life to the big Seward peninsula min ing company, was killed as the result of an accident" in San Francisco week : before last.
