ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE!
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7. 1912 at the postotllce at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: Q?e year, by mail $10.00 Six months, by mail 5.00 Per month, delivered 1.00 AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT THE courtesy of the Juneau Ferry and Navigation Company in changing the schedule of the ferry service between Juneau and Douglas. Tread well and Sheep creek that Juneau eve ning newspapers might give their customers in these nearby towns better service is keenly appreciated, and The Empire ack nowledges its appreciation in this public manner with a great deal of pleasure. The hour at which the late telegraph news is received at Juneau has made is a difficult matter to give the peo ple of Douglas, Treadwell and Sheep creek the service that they are entitled to and at the same time do justice to the readers of Juneau. The extra half-hour that we will have, beginning Monday, in which to make the ferry, will aid materially those that make The Empire, and it will be a service to the readers of the paper on the other end of the line. Secretary Lane has pretty thoroughly committed himself to the policy of permitting Alaskans to run Alaska in their own way. He now says that he will in no wise interfere in the gub ernatorial appointments in the Territory. One of these days those that have been trotting off to Washington whenever they desire something choice in Alaska will awaken to the fact that we have self-government. ?THE WORLD DO MOVE " IT IS well for one to look backward in history once in a while that he might discover a landmark passed some time before by the Ship of State that will serve as a basis from which to measure the speed at which our civilization is moving. The pub lication of the platform adopted by Joseph Pulitzer, when he took over the New York World from Jay Gould, on the thirtieth anniversary of the transfer, makes a very suitable mile-post from which to reckon. When Pulitizer went from St. Louis to New York to enter metropolitan journalism as the owner of his own paper he was regarded in the East as a Western radical. In fact, he was so regarded by the people of the West where he had lived. And, it must be admitted, that the estimate of him was based on fact. A little more than a score years before that time he had come to the United States because his radicalism made Europe an un genial habitation for him, and he had scarcely landed in this land of free speech before he discovered that it, too, was more conservative than he would have it. When this radical man went to New York and announced the platform that was reprinted in the World May 10th be was denounced by the community, in which the doctrines of Depew were still regarded highly, as a revolutionist and communist. But how tame this platform reads in the year 1913: \ 1. Tax luxuries. 2. Tax inheritances. 3. Tax large incomes. 4. Tax monopolies. 5. Tax the privileges of corporations. 6- A tariff for revenue. 7. Reform the civil service. 8. Punish corrupt office-holders. 9. Punish vote-buying. 10. Punish employers who coerce their employees in elections. There is today no political party in any State of the Union so conservative that its platform-makers would not feel it neces sary to add something to Pulitzer's 30-year old program that would appeal to the progressive element of the population were they attempting to set down the issues for a political campaign. There is no doubt about it. "The world do move." That Cordova correspondent that sent out the telegram say ing that a piledriver had been wrecked and nine persons drowned ?and giving the names of four of the dead?should remember that it is usually best for a newspaper man to confine himself to statements of facts and let the reader do his own guessing. Death is too grave a matter to be treated lightly in the news. Ser ious consequences have come from offenses not so great as this from Cordova. Imposition upon a newspaper that is try ing to give its readers accurate information about the happenings of the day, while secondary in importance in this instance, should not be practiced by correspondents. Do those victories that the home teams are winning right along on their home grounds in the Northwestern league indi cate that the umpires are striving for bleacher popularity? BULGARIANS ASK FOR BIG INDEMNITY PARIS. May 21?The Bulgarian min istry has announced that the Balkan States will ask from Turkey a war indemnity of 5400.000.000. This will be partly ofTset by the Balkan Na tions each agreeing to assume an amount of the National debt of Tur key proportional to the amount of its territory each country takes over. o?o?o NOMINATION OF BATTLE HELD UP WASHINGTON.
