ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7. 1912 at the postotllce at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3, 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: Q?e year, by mall $10.00 Six months, by mail 6.00 Per month, delivered t.00 SUPPORT THE CITY COUNCIL. The people of Juneau elected seven good men to serve them on the city council yesterday and they haye re-elected a member of the school board who has rendered valuable service in the past. The municipal and school affairs are in good and safe hands. It is now the civic duty of every citizen in the community to give those they have chosen to office the support that they will need in the performance of their duties. These men have undertaken the task of serving the people without price as a matter of public spirit. That they will give the public the best service of which they are capable none doubts. The least the public can do is to aid them in every way possible to get the best results for our city. Juneau is at the beginning of an era of prosperity such as Southeastern Alaska has never before witnessed. The hour for which many have waited is at hand. To make the most of it requires that there be team work all along the line, and it is up to every citizen to do his part. It is "Prof." Ta people will hardly be expected to think of it that ^ oeen difficult enough to get used to "Col." Rooseve. will probably continue to say "Mr.' Toft. 1 ALASKA LEGISLATURE WILL BE AGAINST WHITE SLAVE TRAFFIC The evident disposition of the Alaska Legislature to pass a stringent white slave law is pleasing to good citizens. The people of the United States have set the seal of their dis approval on the traffc in human beings. They have determined to put an end to the business of selling women. Those lowest of humans, the procurers and the men who live from the profits of; women's shame, must go. That it is the purpose of the Alaska Legislature to put Alaska in line with the other states and terri tories that are making this fight for decency is plain, and it will merit the praise that it will receive for doing its duty. As was predicted, the fall of Adrianople was followed quick ly by Turkey's begging for peace at any price that would save Constantinople. As for the West, at least. Franklin K. Lane is just now tht most popular claimant for the distinction of being the "Man 01 the Hour." "JEFFERSON SIMPLICITY" AT WASHINGTON 4 4 T effersonian Simplicity" are not merely words having a Dem J ocratic sound with the new administration. President Wil son has inaugurated a method of directness in the perform ance of his duties and in his contact with the people of the Na tion that is well described by that trite Democratic shiboleth. Speaking of some of the new customs that have been inaugurat ed by the President, the New York World says: "President Wilson will try to get along without a military aide who has been the faithful shadow of the last two Presidents. His box at the opera or theatre will not be draped with the nation al colors. The military staff of the White House has been re duced. "Mr. Roosevelt's fondness for the spectacular developed about the White House the appearance of a third-rate German court. Like John Adams, he had a keen eye to show and color and form for the impression that high public office might make upon the people. And so there gradually developed about the people's Chief Executive the trappings that surround the army's Chief of Staff. "That this should be disagreeable to a man of Mr. Wilson's democratic tastes and essentially civilian character was to be expected." And yesterday the President announced that he will talk to the newspapermen of the country directly and in the first person. A day or two before it was learned that he will pay for his theatre tickets, and not accept passess to anything. The "Pres idents yacht" has been discarded. He will act like a plain Amer ican citizen whenever that is possible. Verily, "Jefferson Sim plicity" is here. The eight-hour law that passed the Senate yesterday was so amended before its passage that it requires men to work full eight hours. That means, under the terms of the bill, the change of shifts will take place at the face of the mine where actual work is being performed and the laborers' time will begin there. It was also amended so that in case of an emergency in placer districts a man may work longer than eight hours, and this was defined to mean that where there is danger that the shortage of water might result in damage to an operator an emergency will be construed to exist that will permit him to work longer than eight hours and make use of all the water that might be avail able day or night. The frightful frequency of fatal accidents to those Mexicans who disagree with President Huerta is something wonderful. If the Mexican insurgents are not being assassinated they are the most unlucky mortals among men. The municipal election is over. Let us now close up the ranks and all work together for JUNEAU. STROLLER NOT STRONG FOR INDIAN VOTERS A bill to extend to Indians the fran chise was forcefully "set upon" In the introduced the bill should be recall Alaska legislature. The member who ed.
