ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7, 19111 at the postotllce at Ju ueau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: Opv year, by mail $10.00 Six months, by mail 6.00 Per month, delivered 1.00 THE MINERS' AND PROSPECTORS' HOMES IF THE Alaska Legislature had done nothing else to justify its being the session that is nearing an end would be worth while for the work that has been done toward establishing homes in the Territory for indigent miners and prospectors. There will be two such homes?one in the Interior and one on the coast. The home on the coast will occupy the buildings formerly used as marine barracks at Sitka that have been turned over to the Territory for that purpose. It will be ideally located for the use for which it is intended. The home in the Interior will be lo cated by a commission at the head of which will be the Governor of Alaska, in accordance with the provisions of the bill of Rep resentative Dan Driscoll that was passed, and. by the adoption of the amendment by Senator Henry Roden, the commission is given a sum sufficient to secure a site for the home. The pioneers that came into the North and uncovered the wealth of resources that await an opportunity to serve men are entitled to a guarantee of comfort and ease in the days when they are old. Society that they have served well owes them that much, and the fact that the Alaska Legislature has admitted the obligation and set about to keep it in good faith is creditable. While the credit for the good work done belongs to all the members of the Legislature, it is not out of place t-o say that, the activity of Representative Frank A. Aldrich, chairman of the; committee on Territorial Institutions, whose committee handled the legislation, is entitled to the thanks of the people of the Ter ritory. Representative Arthur G. Shoup and Delegate James Wickersham, also, did good work with the departments at Wash ington. in securing the marine barracks at Sitka for this laudable purpose. Those optimists that expect to settle the troubles that come from Mexican disputants, whose bullets that are meant for one another come over the boundary line into American towns, by purchasing a large slice of territory off of Northern Mexico must not forget that even if we get Lower California and Sonora there will still be a boundary line between our country and Mex ico. and the Mexicans will have our $30,000,000 with which to buy ammunition. Of course, we could then buy Chihuahua, and then Durango?but that reminds one of Schneider's cutting his dog's tail otf one inch at a time so it wouldn't hurt so much. A NEW POLITICAL ERA IN THE UNITED STATE THE direct manner in which President Woodrow Wilson and his cabinet have set about serving the American people has not only captured the imagination of the country but it has won the respect and conlidence of men in all the walks of life. There is no longer talk about the incapacity of those that have been out of power for so many years, and there is .expectation all along the line that platform pledges will be faithfully regarded. The simple, JelFersonian way the President and the members of his cabinet have of taking the people into their confidence, and dealing frankly in a man-to-man manner with everybody is get ting results in the Nation as it has gotten them in separate States, and it is disipating clouds of doubt and pessimism that long have hung like palls over the commercial and political world. Even the conservative Washington Post has been captured by the new order of things. Commenting upon the Wilsonian way it recently said: "There is something extremely refreshing in the President's cutting o:" the red tape of precedent regard ing his relations with Congress. His actions are those of an American and a Democrat. Contrary to the sug gestion that his reading of the message was like 'read ing the speech from the trone,' or that his visit to the Senate side was a wielding of the big stick, it is ap parent now that his personal appearance at the Capitol is in fact a return to democratic methods, instead of a departure from them. "There is some reticence as to the scope of the con ference between the President and Senators on the fi nance committee. The obstacles ahead of united party action in the Senate were pointed out, doubtless, with frankness. It is not to be presumed that the meeting was a mere polite passing of the time of day. Mr. Wil son was not there simply for the novelty of the exepr ience, but to smooth the way for the enactment of the tariff bill. If information was not volunteered, we may be sure that he asked for it. Senators who are in his confidence and who are anxious to pass the bill must have expressed their concern over the situation that is opening up. "The mere fact that the President visited the Uap itol and went into the Senate situation is sufficient proof that he sees where the danger lies, and that he intends to do his best to pilot the bill through the stormy wa ters. His visit exhibited once more his direct, unosten tatious, and earnest manner of administering his office, and there is no question that his manner is popular with the people." The visit of Secretary of State William J. Bryan to Califor nia to consult directly with the Governor and the members of the legislature with reference to the Japanese question there is another manifestation of the new way of serving the people in the way that will get desired results. All signs indicate that a new era has begun in the political life of America. Nathaniel Greene, for many years City Clerk of Juneau, has been elected City Clerk of Cordova. Mr. Greene served Ju neau faithfully, and he will give the people of the Westward city an efficient administration. If some of that territory of Northern Mexico should fall into American hands Mexicans would not have to worry so much over the fact that they are Mexicans. They would have some thing else to worry about. Those people that thought the Alaska-Gastineau and the C. YV. Young ball players were trying to talk themselves into a pennant were fooled. The scrap was intense, and there is likely to be some more. Let it come. The Colonel has been heard from. He is trying to get into the Japanese-California affair?probably to lay a foundation so that he can claim the credit, for political purposes later on, for the settlement of the trouble that has called Bryan to Sacra mento. WILSON TAKING CARE OF "STROLLER'S" FRIENDS Another of the editor's old, tried and true friends has just been appointed to a good position. The honor, integ rity and ability of Robert \V. Jennings of Juneau have been recognized and fittingly rewarded, he having been nuide United States district Judge for the first judicial division of Alaska. An able lawyer with an acute sense of right and justice, he will make an ad mirable otticial. Such appointments as are now being made in Alaska will place that territory on a much higher plane of respectability than she has hitherto occupied.?Whitehorse Star. MAYBE HE WAS TRAINING A Pedro creek. Fairbanks mining | district, miner was arrested at Fair ' banks charged with stealing three feather pillows, a powder rag, sever al bottles of perfume and some arti cles of jewelry. It is said to be the first offense the man was ever charged with. A PECULIAR SOUTHERNER "For a Southerner," comments a newspaper chronicler. "Secretary Dan iels is something of an anomaly, for he neither smokes, drinks nor swears." Why not go the limit, and add that 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, apd together with all property rights and franchlri? 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 the making of said mortgage, ana aiso together with all and singular the fix tures, improvements, rights, privileges, tenements, hereditaments, and appur tenances, thereunto belonging or In any wise appurtalnlng, and the rever sion or reversions, remainder or re mainders, rents Issues and profits thereof.
