ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-4 Kntered as second-class matter November 7, 1912 at the postofilce at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3, 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: 9?e year, by mail $10.00 Six months, by mall 5.00 1'er month, delivered 1-0? A QUESTION OF VIEWPOINT AND ITS LESSON. A GENTLEMAN who has been a subscriber to The Empire for several months, called at the office yesterday evening, and requested that his paper be "stopped." He assigned as the reason for his action that we are "boosting" the town too much. Of course there was no hesitation in taking his name from the list, although the Empire desires readers and patrons among those that disagree with its positions and policies as well as among those that agree with it. But that is not the point. The fact of the matter is. The Empire has not been "boom ing" Juneau; and "booming" rather than "boosting," is prob ably what the disgruntled subscriber had in his mind?so far as "boosting" is concerned, we are just getting fairly started at that work. We have been simply recording the news as it has transpired from day to day?recording daily events, the story of matured and maturing plans of our citizens and of the work that is being done in the city.. If the result of this daily task of the newspaperman can be construed into "booming" the city, Ju neau is fortunate. It means that things are being done and planned that will make a city here in which we will all be glad to live. And this is the fact. When one considers all the big things, that are being worked out here, it is not strange that here and; there will be iound a man that will look upon the telling about it as "booming." There is not a city on the whole Pacific Coast where the outlook is so bright and inspiring as it is at Juneau. There is no place that offers more inducements to investors or a better field to intelligent men of enterprise. In the meantime the Empire will not "boom" Juneau, but just watch it "boost!" That, next to the publication of the news, is what it is here for. New York Sun editors turn lightly to thoughts of poesy anyhow, and with spring and Senator James Hamilton Lewis with us at the same time the inspiration is simply irresistible. They just have to do it. INGRAM MEMORIAL SHOULD PASS THE Ingram educational memorial is a movement along the right lines. There should be a uniform school system es tablished in Alaska, that development along modern lines of education work should be harmonious and effective. Under conditions as they exist at the present time each school district in the territory is practically a unit in itself, and is independ ent of every other unit. The time has come in the development of Alaskan civilization when there should be organized co-opera tion in the development of a school system for the territory that will give those that are growing into men and women in the North all the advantages that the youth of other sections of the nation enjoy. There is a great work to be performed in Alas ka. and much of it will be left for the growing generation to do. It will require well prepared men and women to do that work as it should be done. A burning question at Seattle just now is as to whether they will or will not have aviation at the "Potlatch" in July. It seems to be largely a matter of cost. .JUST A LITTLE ABOUT HISTORY. A WASHINGTON dispatch that has been printed in many pa pers in the West said that President Woodrow Wilson was the first President since James Madison to read a message to Congress, and in the same paragraph is the statement that it had not been done before for 112 years. Some Washington news paper man at Washington got his wires crossed, and the tele graph editors let his mistake get by them. The fact is, James Madison did not become President until 104 years ago, and did not retire until 96 years ago. John Adams retired from the Pres idency and was succeeded by Thomas Jefferson 112 years be fore the inauguration of Woodrow Wilson. Jefferson sent his messages to Congress in writing, and all of his successors fol lowed the precedent he established until Wilson broke it the other day. Washington, Adams, the elder, and Wilson are the Presidents that have appeared before Congress to deliver their messages orally. AN EXCELLENT APPOINTMENT WALTER H. PAGE, the new ambassador to Great Britain, is splendidly qualified for the duties that devolve upon the most important diplomatic official of the United States government next to the Secretary of State. He is not only a scholar and an editor, whose mind has been stored with general information to such an extent that it is comparable with an encyclopedia, but he possesses a practical knowledge of bus iness affairs, gained through experience as president of the suc cessful publishing house of the Doubleday-Page Company. He is 59 years of age, but looks younger and continues to enjoy the buoyancy of youth in a remarkable degree. He is a native of North Carolina, and a member of an old Southern family that has produced thinkers and writers and capable men for genera tions. He has labored for success in accomplishing results rather than in accumulating wealth. Therefore, he is not a rich man, as riches are measured nowadays, and will go to London having to depend upon the salary that attaches to his office to meet his expenses rather than upon a private income. The appointment is a good one?one that meausres up to the highest ideals of the past in the selection of our diplomatic rep resentatives. Lewi* is no Joke. As a matter of fact Jim Ham Lew is Is no Joke. He is broad-minded, cultured gentleman, and his ability and eloquence will be welcomed in the Senate. And his name is James Hamilton Lewis.?San Francisco Ex I aminer. Expensive Oh, talk is cheap, we're often told. With grim disapprobation? But not the kind that is unrolled At an investigation.

Bennett, editor of the Washington Post, and Thomas F. Logan, editorial writer for that publi cation, in recognition of the splendid work they have done during the last few years in presenting questions to the public in their true light. "The dinner was presided over by Delegate Wickersham. of Alaska, and among those present, in addition to the guests of honor, were Senator Key Pittman, of Nevada: Charles G. Heif-! ner, T. P. .McDonald. A. N. Brown, j Casey Moran and J. E. Ballaine, of i Seattle; Dudley P. Harrison, o^ Nome: ! secretary to Senator Pittman: Donald McKenzie, of Nelson; Dick Ryan, and Falcon Joslin, of Fairbanks. "The entire Alaska railroad situa-: tion was discussed during the evening! in a manner which led everyone to be-< lieve that more genuine understand-j ing between the Alaskans holding dif-j ferent views had been arrived at than; at any of the previous conferences 011 the topic. Senator Pittman took an extensive part in the discussion, j " 'If you leave the construction of railroads in Alaska to private capital,' said the senator 'Alaska will remain undeveloped for a hundred years. I, am in favor of immediate construc tion by the government.'" For home-made pastry and best cof fee go to "U and I" Lunch Roome. lm.

ALASKA BUREAU OFFERS MAPS TO CONGRESS At the instance of the Alaska bu reau authorization for u reproduction of its comprehensive book of maps was given by the new Seattle Cham ber of Commerce. These reproduc tions will be offered to congress us an aid in dealing with Alaska mat ters. There is no collection of maps of Alasku containing as much valua ble data as those in the Alaska bu reau of the chamber. Captain R. H. Stretch, formerly civ il engineer with the Copper River & Northwestern and White Pass & Yu kon railways, has been at work for many weeks completing the collection and there is no doubt they will prove a valuable mite of information to con gressmen studying Alaska matters.?
