NO OCCASION FOR LOSING SLEEP
MR. WARREN and the other officers of the law have brought
Joseph MacDonald from Mexico to Juneau to answer a
charge of crime laid at his door by a grand jury. He is
here within the jurisdiction of the court and has been placed on
his defense. He will be tried and cleared of the stigma or he
will be convicted and serve the demands of justice. Thus far
e very officer connected with his indictment and apprehension
has done his duty effectively, and we have no reason to doubt
that those having charge of further proceedings will perform
their duties in like manner and in regular order as become of
ficers of the courts. There is nothing in the whole matter thatf
need cause people to lose any sleep or to cease working for Ju
neau's welfare along harmonious lines for a single minute. Let
us all stay good natured, and give our attention to more profitable;
things than street corner trials.
Do not fail to go to the polls tomorrow and vote. Pick the
candidates yourself, but do it without malice or spite with the
single thought of Juneau's welfare in your mind.
THOSE AUSTRIAN DEMANDS
THE demands of Austria, to which Montenegro consented un
der pressure from Russia and France, about which there
have been meager reports in The Empire press dispatches,
\ re that the bombardment of Scutari should cease until the ci
vilians in the city were given an opportunity to escape from it!
and that Scutari should eventually become the possession of the
new nation of Albania that is to be established on the shores
of the Adriatic. Montenegro claimed that ample notice had
been given of the proposed bombardment, that the fire of its
army's guns were directed against the defenses of the city rather
than the city itself, and if the city suffered from the effects of
the firing, under the laws of warfare, the responsibility was upon
the defending forces that could stop it any minute by surren
dering. The Montenegrin government also claimed that it had a
right to the possession of Scutari by right of conquest. It made
the concession demanded, however,, under protest, and after it
had addressed a note to the powers complaining of what it styled
the unlawful interference of Austria.
Only one candidate has accepted the nomination for treas
urer of the Juneau school board as provided for in the ordinance
?Mr. Willis E. Xowell. who is a candidate for re-election. Mr.
Xowell has served Juneau well in the past and there is no question
in anybody's mind but that he will continue doing so.
SEXATORS WILL BE ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE
LIEUT.-GOV. HART, of Washington, is authority for the state
ment that only three more States will have to ratify the con
stitutional amendment for the direct election of Senators
to make the amendment effective. He says that more than this
number in addition to those that already have acted
will ratify the amendment before the Congressional
elections of 1914, and that no more Senators will be
elected by State Legislatures except in the case of Maryland,
where Senator Jackson holds a seat through the temporary ap
pointment of the governor, unless a vacancy shall occur before
the next election. The Post-Intelligencer figures that there must
be six more States to ratify the amendment, but it agrees with
Lieut.-Gov. Hart that these will be forthcoming within a year.
Gov. James M. Cox, of Ohio, who has control of the relief
work at Dayton and other points in Ohio is the owner of a daily
newspaper at Dayton, and is a severe loser himself through the
disaster that came to that city.
If there are citizens in Cuba that like tranquility and peace
they probably offer thanks to the gods that control the move
ments of men. that the United States came into existence, every
time they think of what is transpiring in Mexico.
The gold-miners, lawyers, doctors and merchants in the Alas
ka Legislature are just now receiving a liberal education in the
fishing business. It is a safe guess that they know more about
fish traps, purse seins, gill nets, iron chinks, etc., and the habits,
likes and dislikes of salmon, than they ever dreamed that there
was to know.
When in doubt about what to say just speak a good word
for Juneau. You will be doing a favor to your auditor as well
as helping Alaska.

CREATING OEEICE
or TREASURER
Representative Svindseth today in
troduced a bill in the House providing
for the creation of the office of Terri
torial Treasurer. An emergency
is made to expire January 1st, 1915,

the bill becomes a law.
The bill provides that the first in
cumbeut of the office shall be elected
by the legislative assembly at a joint
session in the hall of the House and
that a ballot shall be taken each day
until such officer shall have been elect
ed. The term of the first incumbent
is made to expire January first, 1915.
Provision is made for the election of
all succeeding treasurers of the Ter
ritory at each bi-ennial Territorial el
ection at the time members of the leg
islature are chosen.
The Territorial treasurer must be
a citizen of the United States 25 years
of age at the time of his election and
must have been a bona fide resident
and citizen of the Territory at least
three years prior to his election to the
office. He must give a bond of $100,
000 which can be raised at the option
of the governor at such time that in

in his custody warrant the increase.
The official residence of the treas
urer is designated at Juneau and his
duties require that he shall be the
custodian of all the moneys of the Ter
ritory* from whatever source, and to
pay out of said funds by warrant
only. The funds must be kept in not
less than three banks or depositaries
and be divided acording to the direc
tion of a commission consisting of
himself, the governor and the secre
tary of the territory.
The fiscal year will begin on January
first of each year and end at midnight
of December thirtyflrst of each year.
Provision is made for reports, inspec
tion of books, and punishment for mis
appropriation of funds.
The treasurer's salary is fixed at
$4,000 a year.
