ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7. 1912 at the postofflce at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1879. A SUBSCRIPTION RATES: O^e year, by mail $10.00 Six months, by mall 6.00 Per month, delive-ed 1.00 AUSTRIA'S VEXATION AND THE CAUSE OF IT SOME of those who permit their angry (Missions to rise because of Austria's persistent meddling in the Balkan situation prob ably do not consider the sore disappointment the Vienna gov ernment suffers because of the apparently inevitable settlement of the Near Eastern situation along lines that are not taking that country into account. For generations Vienna has looked toward the Southeast as furnishing an opportunity to re-establish the glories of that country that once was Germania, but that was compelled to surrender its name as well as vast rich areas to the North, both of which were garnered into a new Germany by the virile and capable Prussians and their center is now Berlin. And these same Prussians encouraged Vienna in its hope for territorial expansion toward Constantinople. It was the the great Bismarck in the negotiations that followed last defeat of Austria by Prussia when the Hapsburgs and the Hohenzollerens quarreled over the division of the spoils of their joint victory over poor little Denmark, who suggested that Au stria must grow "that way," throwing his muscular arm into a vigorous gesture toward the Sultan's domain. Of course, Bismarck was offering salve to wounds that he was causing by insistantly carving his pound of flesh from the northern extremity of Austria's dominion. Yet there was logic in his suggestion. Austria had been slowly regaining territory that it had lost to the Mohammedans that at one time shouted heathen peons from the very walls of Vienna itself. And that slow march southward has continued?too slowly, it has devel oped. hence the vexation at Vienna. Hungarians and other peo ples have acknowledged obesiance to the ancient capital of Ger mania. and only a brief time ago Bosnia became a Hapsburg province. The Balkan war has dimmed Vienese visions. If Austria cannot dictate peace terms in such a way as to retain an opening for a wedge in the Southeast her southward march will proceed no farther. With a tight alliance of warlike and educated peo ple at her south, the implacable Germans hanging over her north. Russia at the east and France on the west, the delimina tion of Austrian limitations will have been fixed. It is little wonder that Vienna is sorely vexed. If there is a time in the year when the average man can be pardoned for regretting that he is in Alaska it is along about the middle of April when various mayors and such like down in the States are tossing that "first ball of the season" over?or, rather, trying to toss is over. LA FOLLETTE AND THE PRESIDENT THE New York World thinks good will come of the friendly understanding that seems to exist between President Wilson and Senator La Follette. In fact, the New York paper has come to the conclusion that the Wisconsin man is pretty much of a Democrat himself. Speaking of his recent visit to the Pres ident the New York World says: "Senator La Follette, who conferred with President Wilson recently, calls himself a Republican. He is the Republican who has proved that under the Presidency of Theodore Roosevelt 'the trusts increased from 149 to 10.020.' He is the Republican who has charged that the panic of 1907 'was manufactured by Wall street in terests which bluffed Mr. Roosevelt into anapproval of the Tennessee Coal and Iron merger.' He is the Repub lican who has said more than once that 'Mr. Tai't as President violated every true principle of his party.' He it the Republican who has said over and over again that under the rule of McKinley, Roosevelt and Taft 'the financial control of American industry and com merce passed into the hands of fourteen men,' whom he named. A Republican holding these views ought to be able not only to confer with President Wilson but to co-operate with him." Seattle just won't let Portland stay ahead of her in any thing if she can help it. The Oregon metropolis sent $3,500 to the flood sufferers and the Spirit City came through with $6,500. At that the $500 donation of iittle old Nome up on the frozen Bering Sea was far greater than the gifts from either of the big cities of the North Paicfic, when one takes population into account. But then, Nome, too, has a record to maintain. It contributed $14,700 to the sufferers of the San Francisco earth quake and fire. The Post-Intelligencer thinks it about time to begin taking James Hamilton Lewis more seriously. Well, there have been a good many scattered back along the last two or three decades that have had occasion to wish they had taken him more ser iously before they began doing so. Those municipal elections in the East indicate that the coun try is fast contracting the habit of electing Democrats. Yet the habit is one that will be found easier to discard than most hab its are if the Democratic administration does not perform as Democrats have been preaching. If these Balkans once get Turkey safely out of Europe they will doubtless be ready to join Secretary William J. Bryan and Dr. David Starr Jordan in the propogation of permanent world peace sentiment.
