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. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: 0*e year, by mall $10.00 ; Six months, by mall 5.00 Per month, delivered 1.00 SOMETHING ABOUT THE FIRST DIVISION WE HAVE all heard of words spoken "half in jest and wholly | in earnest," but it is hoped that the speeches made by members of the Alaska Legislature last night, criticising Southeastern Alaska and Juneau, were not intended to possess the second meaning embraced in them. They probably did not, for there is no section of this Territory more loyal to the prin ciples and sentiment that permeate Alaska than is the First Division. The people of this section of the Territory have sup ported those measures that other sections have desired with all the energy and enthusiasm that they have given to the support of the measures that concern themselves alone. In three out of four elections for Delegate to Congress they have given the majority of their votes to candidates from the Interior. They have freely consented that taxes collected in their division should be expended on roads in other sections because the welfare of i Alaska required that they be so used. They are Alaskans, in all the term implies, and stand for one Alaska, ever bigger and ever better. They are the equal in patriotism and the quality of their public spirit of any people on earth. The wonderful baseball players that make up the team of the Philadelphia Athletics are making a start as if they mean to prevent the Red Sox or any other aggregation from again nos ing them out of the privilege of upholding the standard of the American League that has defeated the National League for the world's championship for the last three years. With what is I probably the strongest infield that has been in the game for a decade and their pitchers in 1910 and 1911 form, they are win ning everything before them. However, it is a far cry from April to September and many things might happen. A HALF MILLION NOT TOO MUCH WHEN Representative Arthur G. Shoup introduced a memor ial asking- Congress for $500,000 in addition to the $200, 000 that already has been appropriated for a public build ing in Juneau he did not make the figure too high. There will be need for a government building in this city to house the federal and territorial officers such as it would require that amount to construct. In addition to chambers and committee rooms for the two houses of the Legislature, offices for the Governor, Surveyor General and Secretary of the Territory, for the various officers and commissions that have been established and the officers and commissions that will be established; for the customs house, postotfice, immigration offices, internal revenue offices, forestry bureau and other officers of the federal government existing and certain to come should be provided. And in providing for them, it will be necessary to take the future into account. The time is near at hand when Alaska will take a new start, and grow by leaps and bounds. It is a foolish policy that provides for con ditions that existed yesterday when we know there will be so many tomorrows, and Alaska has had a surfeit of foolishness. Those Belgian workingmen that struck for the right of franchise and for the principle of "one man, one vote" deserved the success that they won. No one can fail to regret the loss of $700,000 a day that the strike entailed during the ten days that it was in operation because waste, no matter where it oc curs, is not a good thing, but the victory for right principles of government won by them was worth the cost. ANOTHER GRAND JURY WANTED FOR SEATTLE SEATTLE and King County, Washington, had hardly gotten .'he business left behind by one grand jury cleared up, before here comes the Seattle Sun demanding that another be called. It wants the County Commissioners investigated, and the so-called "court-house steal" looked into. While we know nothing of the truth or lack of truth in the charges it is desired that the grand jury investigate at this particular time, there is merit in the Sun's suggestion that a community as large as King County?numbering now some 300,000 inhabitants?should have a grand jury at least once a year. It is difficult for a prosecut ing attorney's office that has to devote so much time to the pros ecution of criminals and in advising county officers to find time al so to make inquiry and investigation as to whether or not sys tems of graft are being developed here and there in the public service. The knowledge that an investigating body of citizens will assemble at more or less regular intervals to look into things gen erally always has a beneficial effect. The time has not arrived when our civilization can get along wholly without a grand jury. Are we to understand that the refusal of those Uaiilornians to pay Mr. Knox for the services that they think he attempted to render the candidacy of Mr. Taft are an indication of the Progressive?mark the capital "P"?trend of thought in that State, or was it because they believe the results indicate that the services were not worth paying for?
