"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
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
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.
