ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7. 1912 at the postofllce at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1S79. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: (X?e year, by mail $10.00 Six months, by mail 5.00 Per month, delivered 1.00 THE CHANNEL SHOULD BE OPENED. THERE is no good reason why the United States government should not make a survey of Gastineau channel and deter mine what it would cost to make a passageway for craft across the Bar that would shorten the distance between Juneau and Skagway 25 miles. The cost to shipping engaged in traffic on the Southeastern Alaska route because it is compelled to dou ble Douglas island is immense. The government has spent mil lions in removing conditions that are .not nearly so onerous. The memorial that was introduced in the legislature yesterday, ask ing that the government survey the channel, should pass, and Congress should make the appropriation it suggests. It would be found, without doubt, that the cost of the work required to make the channel navigable would be a mere pittance in comparison to the benefits that would result annually to mil lions of dollars worth of shipping. The ratification of the Constitutional amendment providing for the direct election or' United States Senators will make many extra legislative sessions necessary. In many of the States that will have to ehoose a Senator before another regular meeting of the legislature the election laws make no provision for the nomin ation and election of United States Senators, and in all of these there must be special sessions. Among the number is Washing ton. THE CANADIAN SITUATION THE Canadian Liberals are making desperate efforts to un horse the Conservatives in the Dominion. They are trying to force an election on the proposed "Canadian Navy" bill that appropriates some $35,000,000 a year for the establishment of a fleet of warcraft for the Dominion that will become a part of the Imperial military establishment in case of war. The Lib erals believe if they can compel the Borden ministry to "go to the people" on the question while the venerable Laurier is in health and fighting trim that they can gain power once again. Borden has thus far refused to accept the challenge that is hurled at him almost daily, but continues to say that the Conserv atives will pass the bill without an election. However, while he possesses the voting strength to do so. he is either fearful and hesitating or he is mending his fences preparatory to an election. In appointing Dr. Osborne, of Wyoming, asistant Secretary of State. President Wilson has honored one of the big men of the West. Dr. Osborne has been governor of Wyoming and rep resented the State in Congress. He has been the leader of his party in his State ever since it was admitted into the Union, and was prominent there in territorial days. He is known of all the citizens of Wyoming as a physician, stock raiser, and philan thropist. It is said, even by his political opponents, that no man ever called upon him for assistance of any kind in vain. NICHOLAS OF^ MONTENEGRO PLAYS STRONG GAME NICHOLAS, of Montenegro, would play a great hand at poker. He is a master at "bluffing." and he is not afraid to "call" when he strongly suspects that he holds the top hand. Of couse. he occassionally makes mistakes?for instance, a few days ago. when dispatches eminated from his capital that Monte negrins and Servians had captured Scutari, he was depending too much upon what he expected to "draw." He was convinced that Scutari would fall, and with good cause, for five Turkish forts had been taken. It was important that the occupation of Scutari should be accomplished before the demonstration of the powers became too menacing, so it was permitted to go out that the city had succumbed to the assaults of the allies. However, Nicholas plays too good a game to permit a mistake in calcula tions like that to embarrass him. With 40,000 soldiers?a mere stack of "white chips"?he is defying the "concert of the pow ers"?supposedly, at least, with a whole wrackful of "yellows" at their command?to shoot while he vigorously pursues his war upon the city that he covets and which the great nations of Europe have told him to let alone. In the meantime, he is making the concert of the powers look like a house of cards. Englishmen think the suffragettes are after the Bank of Eng land. The women had better look out, or the charge that they are not qualified to participate in politics is likely to be proved against them. It has been a long time since male politicians have been accused of using dynamite to get at the money. Their methods are more modern than that. The strength of the various parties in the House of Represen tatives as shown in the vote for Speaker was, Democrats, 271; Republicans, 111; Progressives, 18. There were 35 absentees, 20 of whom were Democrats. A Washington State supreme court justice was fined the other day for violating a city ordinance of the staid capital city. My, how this talk of recalling the judiciary has emboldened the little fellows! Those Japanese must like that California land pretty well. The elder statesmen of Tokio are willing that citizens of their own country should foreswear their Emepror in order to get it. Does "Scotty" Allen's defeat after two victories in the an nual Sweepstakes race indicate that Nome dogs, also, have an aversion to third terms? The Clean-Up. "Did you find anything in that house?" asked the footpad "Nothing worth while," answered the burglar. "But it's bad luck to come away empty handed, so I brought along the watchdog and a lot of burglar alarm apparatus." As Times Change. "When a family seemed pinched in circumstances the first thing we ask ed was whether the husband played the horse races." "Yes." replied Miss Cayenne. "Now, the first thing we ask is whether a man's wife plays bridge." 11IIIIIII11111111 > j: Have Only I: Ten Days Greater \!

His "break" on the subject of home rule for Ireland has alarmed some people unduly. He is not likely to repeat that. Foreign affairs are not properly open to stump discussion by him. But why should he be silent about do mestic affairs? Are there not, on the contrary, three good reasons why he should discuss them with his fellow citizens whenever opportunity pre sents itself and his views are sought. (1) What the country has voted for and what the Democratic party has promised, is Bryanism. Now, who un derstands Bryanlsm so well as its au thor? Whenever there is dispute be appealed to? Or. put It in the lin go of the card tuble, when in doubt why should not Democracy play Bry an? It considers him trumps. And undoubtedly he took every trick last i November. The administration will need j an orator. Every administration has i had one. Who so fit, then, as Mr. I Bryan for this administration? in fact, he is the only orator in the cab-; inet. Some of the other members < spepk well, but only as many men ? do who participate in public affairs. [ Mr. Bryan is the one spellbinder in the company: and when the presi dent himself is unable to appear and explain progress why should not Mr. Bryan take his place and meet the demand? (3) The desire to hear Mr. Bry-j an which has remained keen for six teen years, is keener today probably than at any time since it was first manifested. Both sides recognize him as a winner. His old admirers are enthusiastic beyond measure. His old opponents conced to him un NOTICE OF JUDICIAL SALE Whereas, on the 2nd day of April, 1913, an order of sale was issued out of the District Court for Alaska, Di vision No. 1. at Juneau, in the case of British Columbia Development As sociation, and Sir John George Craggs, as Receiver of the assets of said asso ciation. vs. The North Pacific Wharves & Trading Company, and to me direct ed and delivered as Referee appointed in said cause, commanding me to sell as under execution all the right title and interest which the said defendant had, on the 9th day of August, 1907. or at any time thereafter, in and to the following described property to wit: That certain wharf property, and other properties, situated, lying and being at. and immediately southeast of the town of Skagway, Alaska, known and held as and called "Moore's Wharf Property," together with the wharf approaches to the same, and to gether with the land beginning at the north end of said approach to said wharf and running and extending south from and along the said Moore's Wharf (along the bluff on the east shore of Skagway Bay), to the wharf now constructed, claimed and owned by the Pacific & Arctic Railway & Navigation Company the southernmost terminus of the said wharf property having originally been marked and fixed by the southernmost ringbolt placed on a point or rock on said shore by William Moore, and together with all property rights and franchis es. privileges, warehouses and other buildings and improvements, approach es to said wharf, extensions, and all other property of any other kind or nature whatsoever being in or about said Moore's Wharf at the time of trie matting 01 Baia mortgage, ?uu amu i together with all and singular the fix tures, improvements, rightB, privileges, tenements, hereditaments, and appur tenances. thereunto belonging or in any wise appurtaining, and the rever sion or reversions, remainder or re mainders, rents issues and profits thereof.

As much as should be asked is thut a man so in fluential with his tongue bridle it. somewhat now that he is filling a great office; that when speaking he be more the interpreter than the agi tator; that the orator shade off a little into the executive. Gen. Harrison was his own orator on many occasions, and a very com petent one, but. Secretary Blaine sometimes spoke for the administra tion. Secretary Boot made some very important speeches for the Roosevelt administration, and Secretary Knox performed similar services for the Tuft administration. .Mr. Wilson will need Mr. Bryan in a like capacity, and is fortunate in having a man so ad mirably equipped and so willing to respond.?Washington Star. in the United States Commissioner's Court for the District of Alaska, Div.
