ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG JOHN W. TROY, Editor. Telephone No. 3-7-4 Lutercd as second-class matter November 7. 1912 at the postotlice at Ju ueau. Alaska, under the Act of .March 3. 1S79. : SUBSCRIPTION RATES: O^e year, by mail $10.00 Six mouths, by mail 6.00 1'er mouth, delivered l.Oo COMING TO ALASKA PASSENGER traffic to the different sections of Alaska promis es to be heavy this summer, according to the transportation companies. 'I he Alameda, of the Alaska Steamship Com pany, which arrived last night from Seattle, enroute to the West ward. carried a full passenger list of which only a small percent age was of the tourist class. Nearly all the others were bound for points on the coast and in the interior. Among them were a number of former Alaskans who had been trying their "luck" in various Western States, but who were glad to get back to Alaska. "Alaska is the best country 1 know of," said one of these. "If a man can't get on in this territory he can't do well anywhere." This man had spent the past year in Nevada where he had been engaged in mining, and while he did not disparage the Sage brush State, he gleefully admitted that he could do much better in Alaska, where the opportunities were larger and success more certain. ^ l- ..1 J Alaska is tin- laiui 01 opportunity, ine tact snouiu ue n.cjn uppermost in the minds of all Alaskans. And it should be passed along to others. There is plenty of room for willing workers in this territory. The industrious and capable need not fear, but neither this nor any other country under the sun is a good place for the incompetent and the shiftless. Alaska's mountain chains allure the prospector, and the rich placer gold deposits are equal ly inviting. The sea is full of as good fish as ever were caught; land tit for agricultural purposes is not wanting; the forests are extensive: there is abundance of coal?if it could be mined, which it will be soon?and as for health, one can have it in abundance, for the climate is conducive to health and long life, and there is none of that "cribbed, cabined and confined" feeling that is found in the congested "centers of civilization." Alaska's population should be 250.000 by the year 1920, for it cannot be doubted that a new era in the Territory's develop ment is dawning. The House committee on the election of President and Vice President has decided to propose an amendment to the Constitu tion limiting the tenure of the President to one term. It will probably recommend that that term shall be extended to six years. Another amendment should be submitted with that one. If the President's term is to be six years, that of members of the House should be three. If these changes were made they would lessen the frequency of elections and give the people more time for business. Why not try it? HUMPHREY DOIXCr A MAN'S WORK T F REPRESENTATIVE WILL E. HUMPHREY does nothing 1 more than to keep Pinchot so busy that he can't interfere while Western Senators and Representatives are securing legislation that will compel some of his bureaus to release their grasp on the Independence of the West he will have done something worth while. Pinchot is a menace to Western devel opment and to self-government. He. more than any other one man, has been responsible for the growth of a sentiment in the East that has demanded the placing of the West into reservations and the government of the reservations by Eastern-made bureaus and special agents. He. more than anyone else, inspired Roosevelt's infamous New Na tionalism. that has caused great alien principalities to be set apart within Western States and Territories in which there is not and cannot be any semblance of self-government. These bureaus?particularly the forestry bureau which was trained by Pinchot?have succeeded in stretching their authority to such an extent that it comprehends all the functions of government. Pin chot has bragged about the manner in which the bureau estab lished to care for trees has interfered with water rights, graz ing afFairs and matters of police regulation that concern West ern communities. He has utilized government resources to maintain a press bureau for the purpose of developing a senti ment in the East that will support the high-handed beauracratic form of government that he and the other New Nationalists have engrafted on the Nation. He has stood for the government of the West by the East. If Representative Humphrey can keep this demagogic Rep resentative of a class, that would take the authority of govern ment out of the hands of the people and place it in the hands of big-stick-armed, hobby-horse cavalry, engaged, while the really big men of the West regain for the people the right of self-gov ernment. he will have done one man's work. Newspaper men have come to recognize that their Western education is not complete until they visit Alaska. The battle is half won at least. They will have to quit charging the antics of The Colonel to intoxication. He has established his claim to sobriety in a court of law. Now the. question suggests itself, what is it that produces the effect ? He Wanted More and Better. j "Bang!" went the rifles at the ma neuvers. "Oo-oo!" screamed the pret ty girl?a nice, decorus. surprised lit tle scream. She stepped backward in to the arms of a young man. "Oh!" said she. blushing. "I was frightened by the rifles. I beg your pardon." "Not at all." said the young man. "Let's go over and watch the artil lery."?Cincinnati Times-Star. o?o?o Waffles all day at "TT and I" Lunch Room. 4-141m. Something to Break.

CASE "DODIE" CANFIELD TELLS GOOD HOUN' DA >VG STORY Here'8 the last story on the "Houn'j Dawg" song, and it comes to us via no less distinguished a narrator than Dodie Canfield, youthful star of the Juvenile Bostonians, who had the te merity to sing the dolorous ballad of the Missouri canine no longer ago than last June. The why and the where fore of Miss Can field's daring were that the place of singing was the Pal ace of Queen l.iliuokalani, in Hono lulu. and that she was the very first singer to introduce the Champ Clark warsong to the Island region. It earned a tremendous hit. other of the I company say. but that is not Miss Can field's story, which is: After the well-known air had gone the rounds for a brief week in the Isl lands the natives picked it up. The tune became epidemic in their vil lages and spread with the rapidity and persistency of the Manila itch. Any day. to the plunk-plunk of ukuleles? queer, guitar-like native Instruments could be heard a hundred times the chanted Hawaiian translation of the Ozark folksong. Finally the newspapers took their inning, each telling a different his tory and source of origin for the song. Only one. however, lived true to the traditions laid down by the great pal ladiums of the United States which had so busily gone over the ground a year before. This journal one morn | ing solemnly explained that in the , Missouri ballad of annonymous com ' position had been recognized by a i Honolulu anthropologist a familiar j folksong of past ages composed by a | princess of a long-forgotten native In the United States Commissioner's Court for the District of Alaska, Div.
