ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7. 1912 at the postottlce at Ju neau, Alaska, uuder the Act of March 3, 1879. 2 SUBSCRIPTION RATES: year, by mail $10.00 Six months, by mail 5.00 Per mouth, delivered l.OO ALASKA'S CAl'SE AGAINST PINCHOTISM THE cause of the people of Alaska against Pinchotism is strongly put in the Shoup memorial that was introduced in the House of Representatives Tuesday. The resources of Alaska will serve men only when they are used. They are use less when locked up in a wilderness, and their lack of use is the cause of uncountable waste. Every day that every man loses because he is deprived of an opportunity to work or to better his condition in any way by the idleness of Alaska's resources is a day wasted. The welfare of all men demands that every man should have opportunity for employment, and that time should not be wasted. The demand of the hour in Alaska is that the resources of the country shall be set at work for the inhabitants of the country and those who are ready and willing to become inhabitants. Any policy that prevents this is inimical to the public welfare. President Wilson has truly said that "reserva tion is not conservation." The highest kind of conservation is that which conserves time and opportunity for men and women. Let us have some of it in Alaska. Senator Wesley L. Jones, of Washington, is out progressing the Progressives, though he has steadfastly refused to leave the Republican party. He has just introduced a bill in the United States Senate that would levy an inheritance tax for the bene fit of the Nation that would range all the way from one per cent, of modest estates to half of the swollen fortunes of the great multimillionaires. By the way, Senator Jones will come before the people shortly for re-election to the United States Senate. LOW FREIGHTS AND RATE WARS LOW freight rates are always desirable. They reduce the cost of living and production. Consequently they increase demand, and thus stimulate trade at both ends of the line. The fight the people of Yukon Territory are making for lower rates from the White Pass & Yukon is a natural contest for peo ple. that are interested in making the most out of their country, to make. And. it is not unlikely that the White Pass could af ford to carry passengers and freight at lower rates than it is carrying them and still make a profit on its business. We do not know. If so, the rates should be reduced. However, there is one thing that those who are interested in having as many of the passengers and as much of the tonnage, that is enroute to the Interior, as possible to go via the "Inside Passage" and down the Yukon River, instead via the ocean and up the river, can not afford to forget: The White Pass & Yukon Route is their only hope. It is very much to be desired that the line of steam ers that company proposes to operate on the Lower Yukon this summer will do well. Therefore, it might not be for the best in the long run to encourage a disastrous rate war. Rate wars are not permanent and do not result in a stable growth of trade. They are like artificial stimulants. They are demoralizing, and the after-effect is bad. Get the rates as low as are comensurate with good business, but do not get Northern transportation intoxicated. Wholsesome competition is a good thing, and de serves encouragement, but a ruinous rate war in the long run hurts others as well as those that lose money in the traffic. Wh:- : do those Massachusetts men mean by electing anoth er Democratic Congressman? Do they desire to handicap the party with a majority that already is cumbersome, or have they contracted the habit? LUCK IN A TACOMA RESIDENCE IN THIS day and time when the thoughts of so many are turned toward office-getting, when men are wont to be careful about the shoulder over which they catch the first glimpse of a new moon, and spend a great deal of time sedulously searching memories for lucky talismen, it might be interesting to consider Tacoma. Nothing has seemed to lead to success in securing high office like a residence in the City of Destiny. President Wilson's Secretary of the Interior once resided in Tacoma, where he was editor of a nwspaper and where he met and married his wife. Hugh C. Wallace who was said to be slated for the ambassador ship to France claims Tacoma as his residence, though he has lived most of the time for a decade at Washington, and, it is averred, has not voted in Tacoma for eight years. Maurice A. Langhorne, said to be slated for appointment as United States District Attorney for Western Washington, is a Tacoma lawyer. Gov. Ernest Lister, of the State of Washington, is a citizen of Tacoma, and Frank M. Lamborn, recently appointed by him to the best paying office in the State administration, is a member of a Tacoma printing firm. Henry Drum, of Seattle, recently ap pointed warden of the Washington State penitentiary, was form erly a Tacoma banker and a resident of that city when he was ac tive in politics. Not only has fate been kind to these former Tacoma men since the Democrats came into power, but residence in that city has been lucky for Republicans and others who have sought office of recent years. Alaska's Delegate to Congress was a Tacoman for many years. Judge Cushman, who served on the bench in Alaska for a while and quit it oniy to take a life job as United States District Judge for Western Washington, resides in Taco ma. Supreme Court Justices Parker and Ellis, Lieut.-Gov. Hart., Secretary of State Howell, and State Treasurer Meath, of Wash ington, are all voters in Tacoma. And, considered Dy una large, cnese lacoma men are capaDie and clean officials and are rendering the people good service. It might be added, as a matter of local interest, that Major J. F. A. Strong, who has been generally endorsed by the people of Alaska for Governor of this Territory, was resident of Ta coma for several years where he was editor of the Tacoma Ledger.

The arrest of a man at Chicago yesterday charged with par ticipating in the New Westminster bank robbery reminds us that those Canadians are some chasers when they get after a man that has committed crime in their country. They sure would make good Indians. How those upon whom the weatherman has been perpetrat ing his pranks for, lo, these many years, envy President Wilson that one swift kick he got in with the Presidential boot before Willis Moore could make his getaway! WHITEHORSE PROPERTY TO BE WORKED Reports are reaching town that the Grafter mine on which development work has been carried on since lust fall, is looking better now than at any time since the Atlas Mining com pany has been operating there. It is said that large ore bodies are be ing revealed and that the ore is of much higher grade than that being mined at the Pueblo. Diamond drills will be put to work on the Grafter soon in order that the extent of the ore bodies may be determined. It 1b said the Atlas Mining company will j not further develop the Valerie, but | will permit its option to lapse.? ' Whitehorse Star. WOMAN WIRELESS OPER ATOR HAS CLOSE CALL KETCHIKAN, Alaska. April 8.? The steamer Windbar, Captain H. E. Soule, arrived here this afternoon from King cove and Excursion Inlet, where the vessel unloaded cannery supplies. On the return trip the vessel en countered a severe storm and during the heavy laboring of the vessel a dy namo in the wireless room was torn loose, pounding heavily from side to side, smashing the wireless instru ments and all the furniture in the room. Mrs. H. E. Soule, wife of the captain, who is the wireless operator, left the room but a moment before, thus escaping probable serious injury. The vessel was brought up into the wind and the dynamo made fast. The Windbar is en route to Belling ham for another load of cannery sup ! plies. CARRIER PIGEONS AS FISHER FOLK Probably the greatest innovation in the fishing trade yet heard of on the Pacific coast is to be adopted by J. j Sidney Smith, of the Atlin Fisheries, | Limited, whose headquarters are in Prince Rupert, says the Prince Ru pert Empire. In order that he may keep in con-i stant touch with his trawlers engaged in the Hecate straits and north and west of Queen Charlotte Islands, Mr.' Smith has placed an order for a large ; number of carrier pigeons, whose home coop will be in this city. Each I boat going out to the fish banks will take ten or a dozen birds on board to be liberated whenever it is desired to send a message to the head office of the company. As the boats are seldom more than a hundred miles from here, messages can be delivered within less than two hours, the average speed of a carrier pigeon being from sixty to seventy miles an hour. Mr. Smith's unique scheme will be watched with a great deal of interest. If a success, no doubt other Companies engaged in the fishing business here and along thej coast may follow the example. ANOTHER GOOD WORD FOR SECRETARY LANE There is no doubt but that Alasku will get all there is coming to her from Hon. Franklin K. Lane, Secre tary of the Interior in President Wil son's cabinet. By the last mail the editor of the Star, who was very well acquainted with Mr. Lane when he was editor of a paper in Tacoma, Wash., twenty years ago, received from him a personal letter, which closed with these words: "I hope I may be of service to Alaska in the next four years." We know Mr. Lane sufficiently well to assure the people of Alaska that he means just what he says.?Whitehorse Star. THEY NEED EDUCATION.
