ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-1 Entered as second-class matter November 7. 11)12 at the postofllce at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1S79. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: Q?e year, by mail $10.00 Six months, by mail 5.00 Per month, delivered l?00 HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING ASSURED THERE is no longer any doubt but that the funds necessary to provide an adequate high sehool building, properly equipped, will be raised. The $2(5,000 already pledged is a guarantee of that. When the next school year begins all the school children of the city will be well housed and have all the necessary facilities to do good work. Of course, more money must be secured, but that will be done. The people of Juneau have demonstrated that they do not stop half-way in an under taking. The manner in which the people of Juneau have responded to the call for money with which to give the city better school fa cilities makes a resident of the city proud of his residence and citizenship in it. It demonstrates?if demonstration were neces sary?that the men and women and spirit that mean city build ing along the right lines are here. It proves?if proof were neces sary?that Juneau will continue the march of progress, and that it will live up to its opportunities. The school board, and everybody concerned in raising this money, are deserving of high praise. They have done two good jobs. They have provided handsomely for the youth of the city and they have proved the mettle of Juneauites. The London News thinks there is danger to the peace of the world in Bryan's "grape juice" dinners. It seriously urges that some testy, old diplomat might get angry over being compelled to eat his dinner without wine with which to wash it down, and start trouble. How hard it is for some not look upon affairs of government as matters purely personal THE REJUVENATION OF SITKA THE rejuvenation of Sitka is a matter in which all Alaskans can well afford to take pride. This old city is the historical center of Alaska. Established more than a century ago, it is the oldest white settlement on the American Pacific. The Greek Catholic cathedral with its pictures and relics, the old buildings and populous cemeteries are all reminders of the gen erations that have come and gone since the first settlement of Alaska. It was here that the Stars and Stripes were first raised over Alaska soil, and here was the seat of the first American as well as the last Russian government. But Sitka is well adapted to the purposes of modern civil ization. It is one of the beauty spots of the Pacific Coast, and it is the center of a section of the country that abounds in re sources such as provide sustenance for men and women. Its mineral, fisheries and commercial advantages are coming to be known, and their development will make a new city. Its inhabi tants can look to the future with hope more important than the reverence with which they have viewed the past. At least "grape juice" diplomacy fits in better with twen tieth century sentiment than "grape shot" diplomacy that was so popular a few generations back would fit. A GOOD MAN IS DEAD. NO SADDER duty has come to the newspaper men of Alaska, Yukon Territory and Washington State in a long time than that of chronicling the death at Tacoma of Capt. Richard Roediger. Capt. Richard Roediger was a man that wo .1 worth knowing. He knew the newspaper business from the ground up ward. and he knew men. All that have ever been associated with him in any way and all that knew him well loved him and ad mired him. and are richer because of the association and knowl edge. He was the soul of honor, always loyal to principles and friendships, and thorough in his work. A good man is dead. May he rest as a man that lived his life and did his work well desrves to rest. "I shall try to knock down sectionalism, and work for a united Alaska." In these characteristic words Major Strong gave a hint of what will b3 the cornerstone of the administrative structure he will erect here in Alaska. And when Major Strong "tries" to do anything he usually does it. The outlook for the men and women of the North gets brighters every day. The influence of the widow of the late President Grover Cleveland, who is an anti-woman suffragist, will probably be off set by the influence of the feminine members of the household of the present President Woodrow Wilson. The President's daughters are as ardently in favor of votes for women as Mrs. Preston is opposed to them. Professors Have Stimulus. The remarkable career of Wood row Wilson is no doubt encouraging a uum ber of college professors to special en deavors in popular discourse on eco nomics.?Washington Herald. It Is Confusing. Calendarically speaking, vacation is but a few days off. Financially speak ing. it seems off in the eighth zone somewhere.?Washington Herald. The Acme of Radicalism. An agricultural paper proposes to guarantee cantaloupes. Besides this the guarantee of bank deposits is a safe, sane and conservative measure. ?New York Sun. Both Sides. "I don't believe half of what I see in print" "Of course not Half of what you see is always contradicting the other half." Discreet Delay. "What is your objection to my ap pointment ?" "Nothing personal," replied the em inent official. "I want to postpone as long as possiblue the bitter disappoint ment that hundreds will feel when J fill the position." Hopes Destroyed. Alas, how often here below Our expectations bump Because some umpire doesn't know The proper way to ump! Lack of Sentiment. "You think poets are likely to be ; lacking in true sentiment?" "Yes," replied Miss Cayenne. "A poet cannot be trully concerned, with sentiment whose first impulse on hear i ing of a tragic event is to think up all the words that can be used for rhymes in connection with it" The Lovera Monarch Is the popu lar bit size. **? FISHERMEN MOVE FAMILIES TO SITKA. SITKA, May 14.?The Booth Fish eries Company have their cold storage building nearly completed; and by the first of July expect to have their dock built, machinery installed, and be freezing fish. Unlike the other cold storage companies in Alaska, the Booths will handle all kinds of mar ketable fish, so their fishermen will be able to realize on everything that gets foul of their lines. The captains of forty halibut schooners have al ready made preperations to move their families to Sitka, and these, with the crews, will make a very substantial increase in the population. Then, if the Booths are as successful as they expect to be, many others will follow. GEORGE W. PERKINS TO HE WITNESS WASHINGTON, May 16.?George W. Perkins will be called as a witness before the Senate committee on ter ritories to explain certain circum stances recited recently by John E. Bnllaine, of Seattle, in connection with , plans for building railroads in Alas ka. Ballaine testified that George W.! Perkins told him that there would be ! no railroad building in Alaska until after the government had issued pat-: ents to certain coal lands for which ! the Guggenheims had applications; pending. This tilleged threat by Mr. i Perkins' business associates to ob struct the development of Alaska un less patents to coal lands were issued to the Alaska syndicate, known as the Morgan - Guggenheim syndicate, impressed the Senate committee pro foundly. Mr. Ballaine asked the committee to call Mr. Perkins as a witness. The witness offered to produce before the committee a telegram alleged to have been sent by George W. Prkins to a New York broker, directing the broker to give certain information to a mem ber of President Taft's Cabinet, pro vided Mr. Perkins would consent that the witness might produce a copy of it SITKA PHYSICIAN TO HAVE FLOATING PALACE SITKA, May 14.?Peter Simpson & Co. have begun the construction of a big houseboat for Dr. T. H. White. She will be seventy feet long, twenty two feet beam, sheathed with six-inch planking, built of Oregon fir, finished In hardwood, and cost twelve thous and dollars. The big lloating home will be propelled from one to another of the beautiful bays on the west coast of Baranoff and Chichagoff by a 76 horsepower Hartle engine. This is the first of this type of pleasure ves sel to appear in Alaska waters; but the country is so ideally adapted to it that we may expect to see many more follow in the near future. Some good power boats are being built in the oth er Sitka shops. HUNTERS AND TRAPPERS:? Highest cash price paid for all kinds of raw furs at Will's store. 4-7-tf.

Down on the city dock the great building erected tor the Juneau ; cold storage plant is receiving its tin ashing touches. A force of men is en gaged on the Cheney property exca vating for the foundations of the new business block the contract for which was recently let to Cleveland & Cleve land. Across the street the walls are being raised on the new Shatiuck building. A little farther along the concrete foundations for the new hotel building of McCloskey brothers, Caro and Hooker, are being laid and the superstructure will soon be going up. Next the projecting front of the new Valentine building attracts attention. A small new building on the Decker property is just finished, the wooden forms are being set and the concrete walls built for the new Jaeger & Er ickson building. Many old buildings have been remodeled and furnished up with fresh paint until they look new?Franklin street looks alive. In the United States Commissioner's Court for the District of Alaska, Div.
