ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7, 15)12 at the postofllce at Ju ucau, Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: Ou>e year, by mail $10.00 Six months, by mall 6.00 Per month, delivered 1.00 GO SLOW ON INDIAN QUESTION THE Legislature should go slow and know its ground thor oughly before taking up Indian problems of any kind. For more than a century the Indians have been regarded as wards of the Nation, and the people of Alaska cannot afford to do anything that will give Uncle Sam any excuse to shunt his guardianship duties toward Northern natives off onto the tax payers of this Territory. The care and education of the native races of the North are National obligations, and they must be performed by the Nation. It recognizes its duty in the prem ises and has the machinery through which to perform it. Let us permit that machinery to work. The white people of this Territory have many problems of their own to solve, problems that if properly cared for will sufficiently tax their resources. The list of those who come to the aid of the school board in its laudable undertaking to build a school house in Juneau will be an honor roll, and a place on it should be sought. Do not wait to be asked for aid. See or call up Senator H. T. Tripp, Mr. Willis E. Nowell or Mr. H. J. Fisher, members of the school board, and offer them the use of what credit you can afford to give. It will never cost a cent and it will be a public service. OMAHA'S SAD PLIGHT THE result of the tornado that has destroyed hundreds of lives and ten millions of property in Omaha has shocked the whole nation, and the sympathy of a. great-hearted people has been extended to those of that city and elsewhere that are in distress. Their plight is pitiable, though it is one that many have looked for. The thought that great suffering would result if one of those terrible cyclones that frequent the Mississippi valley should strike a large city has been one that often has caused people to shudder. Many small* towns have been almost completely destroyed by them, and once before a large city?St. Louis?was struck, and 'there, as in Omaha, the destruction of buildings was followed by fire. Relatively, Re gina, in the Canadian Province of Alberta, was damaged more than either of the American cites have been. But such thoughts as these do not make lighter the burden that is Omaha's. The people of that stricken city are entitled to the sympathy and aid that is being freely given. The institution of an Igloo of the Pioneers of Alaska at Juneau will have a tendency to strengthen the ties that bind Southeastern Alaska to the remainder of the Territory. This is an order that was founded in the newer sections of Alaska, and it is a matter for congratulations that the movement to unite the older pioneers of the Territory's capital city with those that have conquered the more difficult conditions of the farther North has met with such a hearty response. MAKE JEFFERSON'S BIRTHDAY A HOLIDAY i BEFORE passing the Millard legal holiday bill the Legislature very properly amended it to make the birthday of the Great Emancipator Lincoln a holiday for school purposes. Other States have made Lincoln's birthday a legal holiday, and it has been a just recognition of one of the greatest characters of the world's history. Now, there should be one more amendment adopted. April 13th?Jefferson's birthday?should be included with the 12th of February. Had it not been for the wisdom and foresight of Jefferson the United States would never have had a foothold on the Eastern ocean. His purchase of Louisiana gave his country the west bank of the Missippi river, and his Lewis and Clarke expedition extended its claims westward to the shores of the Pacific. Had this Western expansion of a century ago not taken place, the United States would not have had any use for Alaska, and there would not* have been a leg islative body of Americans in session at Juneau. The fact that no other Western State or Territory has honored Jefferson in this way makes the obligation on the part of Alaska to do so greater rather than less. The House of Representatives passed its third bill yester day?the Shoup juvenile court bill. The woman suffrage bill and the compulsory educational bills had already been passed by the House. Mr. Shoup, therefore, has the credit of author ship of the first three bills to receive the approval of the branch of the Legislature of which he is a member. The Socialists have determined to do their part toward adding some spice to Juneau's municipal election. With more than twice as many candidates in the field as there are offices to to fill the Juneau voters will have no difficulty in selecting competent officials to keep the municipal ship of state in safe waters. The farther we go along with the new administration the more clearly is it being demonstrated to us that its policy will be Alaska for Alaskans. RUBY DISTRICT LOOKING BETTER Ninety-six dollars to the pan? picked dirt?reported to have been produced on a Long creek lay that bad been thrown up by Pierce and Lynn. 'Ten- and fifteen-dollar pans are common. C. K. Snow, of Ruby, writes to Senator Sutherland, "and the boys will make big money." Henry and Miller, operating on the "Sly Ann" fraction adjoining "Windy" bench claim on Long creek, are mak ing good inonyed according to Mr. Snow. Dr. Moore and his partner have just to be used in their operations. E. Coke Hill and Charlie Hoxie were out on the creeks recently. They are jubilant over the outlok. $61.50-nugget was found at the mouth of "Fourth of July" creek, and there is some very rich dirt on this creek. God pay has also been found on Bear pup and on the "Mascot" fraction. The postofflce at Rumy handled $65, 000 in money orders between Nov. 5 last and Feb. 22 of this year. Ruby and the tributary creeks together have a population of about 1,000. SEAL SHIPT OYSTERS?Frerh at the local agency?CHAS. GOLDSTEIN 1111II1111111111111111111 III 111111??
