ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG JOHN W. TROY. Editor. Telephone No. 3-7-4 fchitercd as secoud-cla&s matter November 7. 1912 at the postotlice at Ju ueuu, Alaska, uuder the Aci of March 3. 1S79. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: year, hy i*ii $10.00 Six mouths, by mail ?. 5.00 I'er mouth, delivered 1.00 LOW YUKON RATES IN EFFECT WITH the beginning of inland navigation in Alaska a few days ago the talk of lower freight and passenger rates for those oi the f ukon of which we had heard so much was translated into actuality, lhe prevailing passenger or freight charge everywhere on the Yukon waterway, no matter the direc tion or distance one may go or send freight, is 50 per cent oi the amount heretofore prevailing. In some instances, it is said, the reductions are even more than that. This wholesale rate reduction has already resulted in a marked change in trade conditions. Greater tonnage is ottering for the Yukon than ever before was the case, and the indications are that later shipments will be larger than they have been in the past. And this is not all. General Manager 0. L. Dickeson, of the White Pass, says the new rates have come to remain?at least, they will remain until they shall be further reduced. He says the White Pass has entered the lower Yukon tratlic as a per manent proposition, and that it will continue to reduce freight rates as fast as growing commerce will make that possible. The statement of Mr. Dickeson is signficant. It indicates that he does not recognize the conditions now obtaining on the Yukon as those of "a rate war," but that he considers them the result of ligitimate competition, and he seems to see profits in the new "half-rate" that has been put into effect. Let us hope that he sees aright. If ligitimate. sharp competition can be maintained on the Yukon river, and competing railroads provided for the people of the interior, the growth of Northern tratlic will be enormous. Illinois is extending to women the right of suffrage on the installment plan. First they were permitted to vote at school elections. Now they are allowed to vote for statutory officers. Next, probably, will be the constitutional amendment, and full citizenship. SIMPL1EYING GOVERNMENT PORTLAND. OREGON, and Denver, Colorado, have adopted the commission form of government, and now both of those cities, of more than 20U.000 population, will be governed by commissions of five men. In Portland the Mayor, who is also a commissioner, receives a salary of $6,000. The other four com missioners get $->.000 each. In both Portland and Denver the government is non-partisan in character. All the big cities of the Far West now, except San Fran cisco and Seattle, have the non-partisan commission form of gov ernment. and Seattle's government is non-partisan, and the Coun cil consists of only nine members all elected from the city at large. The movement toward non-partisanship in all things except those that have to do with the issues that separate political parties is making rapid strides in this country. In many of the States there is a growing demand that county governments be removed from politics. Gov. Ernest Lister recommended that the last Sate Legislature in Washington pass a law providing for the non-partisan election of county officers, and he recently, in a speech at Seattle renewed his support of that principle. All of the newspapers of Seattle, except the Times, are advocating such a course, and it is almost certain to be adopted at an early date in that State. It is probable that, when it is adopted, it will include all State officers except the Governor and members of the legislature. The effect of this non-partisan movement in local affairs, if carried far enough, would be to relieve National political or ganizations of local political machines on the one hand, and on the other it would permit the people of communities to decide local questions on their merits. It would make issues clear-cut and easily understood. It would simplify government in the country, and that is what the advocates of commission govern ment and local non-partisanship are seeking to do. Kansas is all worked up over an anticipated shortage of har vest hands. Why not a shortage? With the thermometer there hovering around the 100-in-the-shade mark, who would want to remain in Kansas? The peevishness of those lobbyists who are attacking Pres ident Wilson should be overlooked. They are not used to being spanked and it is but natural that they should make faces. While there are few that will admit thai they are supersti tious. there are many that be a little might careful today. It is Friday, the 13th. BLACK FOX FARM BEING ESTABLISHED IN HAINES Tom Lahey. of Haines. is establishing a fox farm near that place. H<? has had wonderful success this spring in securing animals with which to stock the farm. Already more than twenty fine foxes have been secured. Of the twenty, all of which are in good con dition, five are the very rare black j variety. It Is .Mr. Lahey's intention; to raise nothing but cross-fox and the; valuable black, unless good specimens of silver greys are obtained. His id4,a is to get a large stock of black. A pair of perfect black fox are worth close to $3,000. o?o?o WHEN YOU want to eat well, go to the Commercial Cafe Dining Room. Lunch Counter, Private Boxes. The choicest viands at lowest prices.

The yell of the chief herder, the rattle of chips and the merry laugh of the lassies is heard no more. All is changed. Where once the stage rattled and shook beneath the feet of a buck and wing dancer, a so ber. six-hole rhnge softly smokes. It is now only a quiet, peaceable hotel with dining room in connection. As in days gone by, drinks may be had at the bar. The old Opera House has changed with the times. Formerly no one wanted to sleep, and the noise made it impossible. Now it is so quiet that you feel sleepy when you enter the door.?Douglas News. o?o?o Secretary Daniels has changed a great many of the marine terms, but hasn't yet found a new name for sea sickness. 11 n 111111111111 i 111111 m 111111111111111111 a 11 n 11111 i will move in a few days to my new store building ? ? on the corner of ,. ii FRANKLIN & FERRY STREETS jj 11 I CHARICK | :: Jim kj jeweler & optician j: i i i i i i i i i i i i i i 1 i i i i i i i i ii i i i i i i i i ii i imi i i i i ii i i ii i NEWS COMMENT ?o-o?
