ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7, 1912 at the jiostolllce at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3, 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: 0?e year, by mall Six months, by mall 5.0U Per month, delivered SIR RICHARD M'BRIDE. LL. D. SIR RICHARD M'BRIDE British Columbia's brilliant Premier, has been made a "Doctor of Law." The University oi Cal ifornia conferred the degree of LL.D. upon him a few days ago. The honor is well placed. Sir Richard is a Pacific Coast boy that has made good in a great big way. Thousands of friends that have known him since they were lads together, and who have never got over the habit of calling him "Dick" Mc Bride, have watched his successful career as lawyer, politician and statesman with personal interest, and rejoice that the world is coming to know him as they know him. People will hear more yet of Sir Richard. If his health remains good he will take high rank among the great Canadians before he shall have run his course. The Yaldez Prospector says: "One of the candidates for the baseball team of the Chicago university bears the name of Keliikaapunihonua. Can you imagine the college coach shout ing. 'Slide Keliikaapunihonua, slide?'" Xo, no; if Keliikaapun ihonua ever develops into a Ty Cobb, the last 13 letters of his name will go into the discard and he will go down in history as an Irishman. A NEW EPOCH FOR AN ANCIENT PEOPLE. THE complete overthrow of Turkey in Europe marks another great epoch in the record of that section of the world that cradled history in its toddling days. It was 522 years ago that the Mohamedans took Adrianople, and confined the remnant of the Eastern Roman Empire that even in that day wore laur els that had been gathering lustre for more than 1.000 years, to Constantinople and the Adriatic and Aegean shores that were accessible to the fleets of Greece and Rome. Sixty-two years later Mohamed II forced Constantinople, that had gained age as Bizantyne before Constantine the Great had changed its name ten centuries before, to surrender after Constantine XIII. had been killed. He had been fighting in its defense all his lifetime, as had most of his predecessors for centuries before him. From that day to the present the major part of that sec tion of the world, made famous by Alexander, the Caesars, Con stantine and the others of ancient history, has been under the complete control of the enemies of Christianity. Yet, de spite all the efforts of the Sultan and his cohorts, the spark of the Western religion was kept alive in that Near East for the intervening 500 years. And, while civilization reached a very low ebb among the hunted and hounded followers of the Christ in the Ottoman Empire that spread its tenacles out all over the Balkan peninsula, including Greece, the islands of the Agean and Adriatic seas and almost to Crimea, on the Black Sea, the de scendants of the glorious people that once had conquered the world never ceased to dream of the day when vengeance would be theirs. The ambition of the Russian government to acquire an outlet on the Mediterranean and the religious zeal of the Russian people provided the Balkan Christians the means for; preparation for the great contest, long prayed for but that was delayed until the present. In the war of 1878 Russia forced Turkey to recognize the independence of Roumania. Bulgaria, Montenegro, Servia, Herzegovania and Bosnia. Greece had al-j ready gained her independence. Freedom and Western education al methods began the dilficult task of remaking a people that generations of subjugation had all but destroyed. Progress was slow at first, but of recent years it has been going at race-horse speed. A few years ago the statesmen in control of the affairs of the little nations began the creation of military establishments, and planning for the crash of war. In the mid-nineties it broke out on the Grecian frontier, but the Balkan rulers knew the time) was not yet, so, with difficulty, they held their people in leash,' and permitted poor, little Greece to be humiliated. A short half-year ago Italy completed the work that Eng land and France had been doing in Africa. That country took Tripoli, thus removing the last vestige of Turkish control in, the darkest continent, practically destroyed the Ottoman navy and reduced its island possessions to defenseless condition. After-pro longed and thoughtful conferences the wise men of the little kingdoms of the Southeast decided that the hour to strike had come, and, like a thunderbolt out of the sky, the pent up fury that had been accumulating for five centuries was let loose along the whole Turkish frontier, and on the waters of her long coast line. The movement was well-timed and the preparation ? * ' J* . , _ -i rn for it had been all that the wise men hoped ana Denevea. iur key must retire to Asia where the Constantines so long confined it. The descendants of ancient Macedonia have done the work themselves that Crusaders and Austrians and Russians failed to accomplish. But the great work of the Balkans is yet before them. The ancestors of this crude people, in the day of their glory, paced the world in arts, letters, commerce, agriculture and manufac ture. Their victories of peace were even greater than their tri umphs of arms. The real work of Balkan prince and statesman will be to master problems that will come when peace shall have been restored. Then will the test as to the capacity of the mod ern Balkan people to regain for their race the position among the peoples of the world held by it in ancient times be applied. The Skagway Alaskan says: 'The only newspaper man in Alaska that said anything about witnessing the recent eclipse was the editor of the Seward Gateway. The eclipse occurred at two o'clock in the morning." What are we to understand? Were the others in bed, or are they beyond the point of comprehension at that hour of the morning? Washington State celebrated her "Apple Day" on April 5th. A few days previously "'Salmon Day" was commemorated. Now why not a "Potato Day," and "Hop Day." and "Butter and Cheese Day," and "Lumber Day," and all the other "Days" in order and in turn ? If Washington is going to celebrate a "Day" for each of the industries for which that great State is noted there will be so much celebrating on Puget Sound that something will have to be done to devise means to do the work that is, necessary to keep the production up to the reord that has been established. DAVID STARR JORDAN AGAINST BIG ARMY SAN FRANCISCO, "San Francisco has just about as much use for the soldiers and warships stationed here as I have for the buttons decorating tiie tails of my coat," said Dr. David Starr Jordan, president of Stanford University, and world peace-advocate in speaking on "The high cost of liv ing." Dr. Jordan declared that the | possibility of war between the United States and Japan is slight. "War between real nations does not take place any more," he said. "Hair of all the money in the world is spent! in protecting one nation against an-1 other." "A dollar now is worth about 70 cents. World taxation has about dou bled since 1897, with a steadily grow ing expenditure for armament." j In the United States Commissioner's Court for the District of Alaska, Div: No. 1, Yakutat Precinct.

J. M. DAVIS, Referee. ;+< j JUST A QUESTION OF VIEW FOINT Tho Valdez Minor has figured it out after careful study, that the govern ment should build a railroad from Valdez to Fairbanks. The Cordova Alaskan has likewise figured a line from Cordova. Tho Gateway figures one from Seward, the Pioneer Press, figures its from Haines; but a gov ernment owned line from Skagway via the White river and Yukon, with a proper system of feeders, such as we have in our mind's eye, would solve the transportation question in Alaska forever?Skagway Alaskan.
