ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG f JOHN W. TROY, Editor. 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: O** year, by mail $10.00 Six mouths, by mail 5-00 Per month, delivered 1-0U A NEW INDUSTRY N2WS comes from Wrangell that there is a movement on loot to establish a wood pulp mill near that thriving town, a concession of some 20,000 acres of timber land having been secured from the government. It is to be hoped that this pulp plant is the precursor of a number of similar enterprises in Alaska. There is no reason why Alaska should not be an import ant factor in the production of pulp for the manufacture of pa per. We have abundance of suitable wood, which can be utilized to great advantage in this way. If not made use of in due seas on it goes to waste. New industrial enterprises are as necessary to Alaska's per manent growth and prosperity as they are elsewhere. It may be set down as a fact that Alaska is beginning to attract the at-' tent ion of people elsewhere in the United States and in Europe because of its industrial opportunities. Water power is a most important adjunct in manufacturing in this age of electricity. So it need not be wondered that manufacturers and capitalists are looking to countries which have water power to oifer and the i natural resources that may be transformed into finished prod-1 ucts of everyday use. It cannot be doubted that the Southeastern and Southwest ern Alaska coasts offer splendid opportunities that will be eager ly sought for the development of our natural resources in the coming years. If one-half the reports be true as to labor conditions in the coal mines of West Virginia, that State is a right oRe to be ashamed of. ANARCHISTS IN EVENING CLOTHES. WE ARE told that the National capital is now filled with lob byists who are endeavoring to influence tariff legislation in the interests of the manufacturers. Before the Underwood bill had passed the House, certain manufacturers who had grown rich by capitalizing the tariff laws of the United States began to threaten a general reduction in wages if their favored industries were put on a competitive basis. Mr. Underwood's reply was that if any manufacturer re duced wages on the pretext that taritf revision had made it neces sary, the Department of Commerce would proceed to examine his books and ascertain whether he was telling the truth or ly ing. The facts would be made public. Mr. Underwood was immediately deluged with high-protec tion denunciation. When Secretary Redfield declared he would carry out the Underwood program, some of these manufacturers declared they would either close their factories or move to Eur ope. That is the measure of tariff-bloated patriotism. Having been subsidized all these years by the American people, those ar rogant anarchists of industry now are serving notice that the subsidy must be continued or they will retaliate upon the country whose opportunities and generosity have made them rich. They will accept tariff reduction only on the condition that labor is mulcted. That is their ultimatum to the Congress and the Pres ident. And these are the gentlmen who declaim against the in dustrial Hay woods who threaten the employer with ruin and starvation if they cannot rule government, while they themselves threaten labor with ruin and starvation if their pleas for high protection are unheeded! Anarchy in evening clothes is no more attractive than anarchy in overalls. Labor does not propose to be liquidated, if we read aright the signs of the times, so long as the profits of management are what they have been in the past and what they are today. Nor can the reasonable reductions of the tariff now proposed suffice for an excuse for reduction in wages until liquidation has been ruthlessly applied to the evils of management as these now exist. Congressman Humphrey, if he should secure an. investiga tion of the forest service, may discover "a nigger in the wood pile." LET THE BATTLE RAGE. THE rate war that is about to be waged between the White Pass & Yukon Railroad and the Northern Navigation Com pany, will be viewed with much equanimity by Alaskans and Yukoners, who will be the gainers. Neither concern is entitled to sympathy. Both have charged "all the traffic would bear," and more, for many years. Both have paid heavy profits to their stockholders, and if the miner, the prospector and merchant's load be lightened temporarily, the fighting rivals will not suffer materially. Neither Alaska nor the Yukon owe the belligerents any thing?not even their good will. Both corporations have found the north countries rich ground for exploitation and they have never missed an opportunity to milk it to the last drop. Both have exercised a complete?not to say grinding?monopoly, and each has done much to retard the development of its respective domain, by the levying of unjust and inequitable tribute upon a helpless people in order to enrich its foreign owners. And yet both probably actually believe that they have been the greatest developing factors of the North, and will perhaps tell of the sacrifices they have made, the expenses entailed in their altruistic efforts to carry the white man's burden, or per chance they may even recount their heavy losses?but never one word about the enormous profits wrung from the men who have made this country what it is, despite spoilation and spoilators. I Let the battle rage. No Northern tears will be shed for the dying or the dead. Fitting Reward for Good Work.

BOSTON MAGAZINE PRAISES SELECTIONS Joe Mitchell Chappelle, in his "Af fairs at Washington" department of his own National Magazine, published at boston, praises the attitude of the administration toward Alaska and the appointments that have been made for the Territory. In the June number just at hand he says: "The new administration has been especially fortunate in its Alaskan ap pointments. Major Strong, the newly appointed Governor, will undoubtedly give our arctic territory an elllcient and enterprising administration. The appointment of Kobert W. Jennings as Judge of the United States District Court of the First Division, is also in keeping with the determination to give Alaska a territorial government equal to the needs of an enormous area, rich tin minerals and other resources, and occupied by a resourceful and enter prising people. "The untimely death of .Mr. A. J. j Daly, late national committeeman from Alaska, shortly after completing his work at Baltimore, deprived the Dem ocratic organization of Alaska of a leader who has been identified for the past twenty years not only with the politics but the business develop ment of Alaska. It seemed fitting that the territorial and division com mitteemen should approve for the po sition of marshal of the Second Divis-I ion the appointment of Mr. J. P. Daly, a brother of the late committeemanI who had so long served his party in the Far North. "The Alaskan situation has always been strenuous and picturesquely ex citing from the first rush and perils of the earlier inundation of prospectors and speculators following the discov ery of gold down to the present time. Incriminations and recriminations be tween officials and competing compan ies have abounded, and the northern territory as a result has presented a fertile field for the muckraker. until the general public is impressed with the idea that wire-pulling has vied with mining as one of Alaska's chief injlus tries. As was remarked by a depart ment official who visited Alaska during the summer, the Democratic party of Alaska will indeed put a feather in its cap if harmony can be established between the industrial and political leaders of that splendid territory." o?O?0 JOSEPH W. FOLK AFTER SENATORSHIP JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., May 29.?I A State official is authority for the statement that Former Gov. Joseph W. Folk has determined to enter the contest against Senator William J.' Stone, or any other Democrat who may seek the job for Stone's seat in the United States Senate. That ac tion on the part of the ex-governor had been anticipated by the politicians here. It is said that he has already be gun his campaign. o?o?0 HUNTERS AND TRAPPERS:?
