ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG JOHN W. TROY, Editor. Telephone No. 3-7-4 Kutered as secoud-class matter November 7, 1D13 at the postotlice at Ju ueau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 13711. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: year, by mail $10.00 i Six months, by mail 5.00 i Per month, delivered 1.00 110LSE LEAVES LOOPHOLE FOR ALASKA LATER anil more complete accounts show that the Democrat ic House caucus let t a good-sized loophole tor the Alaska question when it decided that nothing out the tariff, cur rency and emergency appropriations should be considered at this session ot' Congress. It provided that any matter specially asked for by the President might be taken up. With the caucus decision in view, those that are interested in Alaska matters are trying to secure the early passage of the Alaska bill by the Senate, and then they will seek to have the President ask the House to pass the bill. That would auto matically place it on the House program. Now let us pray that the Senate will get busy quickly. In appointing Hermon \V. Craven, of Seattle, to be a mem-' ber of the federal civil service commission President Wilson se cured for his administration the services of one of the ablest and best citizens of the Northwest. .Mr. Craven is a lawyer of learning, an orator ot talent and a public-spirited citizen who is, always at the service of those who are devoting time and energy to the improvement of conditions in his city. In fact, he is usual ly a leader in up-lift movements there. WORKING FOR THE COMMON GOOD SPEAKER COLLINS, of the House of Representatives, shows the right spirit. He would try to inoculate the people of Alaska with the work-together idea. It cannot be denied suc cessfully that this is needed. The unification of Alaska would be a long step forward in the work of obtaining for the Territory that recognition which is so essential to its progress and pros perity. Of course this is a big country. It is so vast that the people of the different geographical sections are practically strangers to each other. It has been urged that because of this wide separation, geographically, there is little or nothing in com mon between them. This is not the case. The people of the dif ferent divisions are all interested in the common welfare of Alaska. Or. if they are not they should be, and the time to be gin the cultivation of the spirit of unity is now. The establish ment of a territorial legislature has been the means of bringing the people of the four judicial divisions closer together. It has laid the foundation for a better understanding of the needs of each and of its people. And now in order to reap the fullest ad vantage of a closer union the spirit of mutual helpfulness must be still further developed. Why should the people of one section of Alaska selfishly disregard the appeals of another for help, aid or encouragement? The injury of one should be the concern of all. The prosperity of all should unite all in a common pur pose. There is room for all and opportunity for all. The building of a railroad to the interior country will bene fit all Alaska. It will promote friendly intercourse and develop trade and commerce while opening up new and potentially rich virgin regions. Therefore let everybody help to spread unity of purpose and unselfish individual effort on the part of all Alas kans to work together for the common good. It is not disparagement of any of those who were his com petitors to say that President Wilson made an excellent appoint ment when he selected Fred M. Brown, of Valdez, to be Judge of the United States District Court for the Third Judicial Di vision. .Mr. Brown is a pioneer of Alaska, a lawyer of excellent capabilities, a good man and the friend of all that know him. LET US HOPE FOR PEACE ____ IT WILL cause genuine sorrow throughout the civilized world if the Balkan Alries, thai have won a glorious victory in a war as just as any that ever was fought, cannot arrange a set llement of the differences of opinions and conflict of ambitions arising out of that contest without resorting to fratricidal war. The perfection of a combination of these little Nations to battle a traditional enemy of their people and of Christianity and the manner in which they conducted the war for righteousness that followed won for them the admiration of the civilized world. They have, apparently eliminated the Turks as factors in Euro pean affairs, a thing that more pretentious Nations had been striving in vain to accomplish for centuries. It will be too bad if they fall to fighting among themselves, and in that way lose the opportunity that is theirs to re-establish the prestige of a people that had the keeping of civilization in its babyhood days. Let us hope that reason will displace passion in the land of an cient Macedonia while it is yet time to avoid further bloodshed. The publication of the testimony in the Roosevelt case, wherein the various kinds of cocktails, mint julips and other American drinks have been mentioned, has caused much amuse ment in Britain. It has set the English newspapers at work pre paring "glossaries" of American drinks wherein the ingredients of the various mixtures are set forth and the manner of their making described. It is affording our British cousins much amusement. Mrs. George F. Cotter; 11. wife of the Mayor of Seattle, is serving on the June panel of the jury in the Superior Court of King County. She declined to exercise her right to be excused, preferring to perform her duties as a citizen in accordance with her conception of them. It is said that there are no swear words in Esperanto. Is that the reason that the traveling public is so slow to adopt it? ALASKA INTERIOR EXPERIENCES HOT SUN SEATTLE. June 5.?Real summery weather came ye6terdav to Alaska.
