ALASKA DAILY" EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG JOHN W. TROY, Editor. Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered a* second-class matter November 7, 11*12 at the postollice at Ju ueau, Alaska, under the Act of March 3, 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: Oj>o year, by mail $10.00 Six mouths, by mail 6.00 Per mouth, delivered . 1.00 BUILD THE WATERFRONT THOROUGHFARE THK movement on the part of citizens of Juneau to have a thoroughfare opened from lower franklin street up the chan nel along the waterfront of the city is one that should re ceive earnest consideration. Juneau is destined to be a large city. Its population is growing rapidly, and the rate of gain will in crease. As the town gets larger, its prestige will become greater and it will draw more and more trade from other points in South eastern Alaska. If the city is to reap the reward that its lo cation entitles it to. it must provide room for those that would engage in business and manufucture here, and it must otfer ade quate facilities to accommodate the commerce that will naturally come to tlie metropolis of a quickly developing and rich section of the country. The dockage and rathe handling facilities of Juneau are now taxed to their uttermost in caring for the ships and freight that the industrial development and the trade that already is here bring to the port, and the enterprises that are now under way point to a time in the immediate future when they will be unable to meet the demand. The duty of the hour for the property owners and business men of this city is to prepare the way for a bigger Juneau. One of the necessary steps in the preparation is to enlarge water front facilities and to provide room for those that would come here and assist in building a real metropolis. To build a thorough fare along the whole waterfront would seem to be the first thing to do. The Argentine Republic is apparently envious of the excit ment that other South American republics have been enjoying. They have invited The Colonel to make some speeches in their country?probably as a counter attraction. ALASKA VOLCANOES HARMLESS TRANSPORTATION men?always quick to catch the pulse of the traveling' public?complain that sensational stories about smoking Alaska volcanoes appearing in the papers?those of the East, particularly,?have some effect on the Northern tourist travel, and they are taking means to counteract it. The fact of the matter is that the volcanoes of Alaska are far re moved from the courses of travel, and do not and cannot in any manner become dangerous to travelers or commerce in any way whatever. This is so well known to those that understand Alas ka conditions that the newspapers, probably, have not taken the pains that they should have taken to make it clear so that those who are not familiar with the situation might understand. The smoking volcanoes on the Alaska peninsula and in the Alaska range of mountains are simply added attractions to the country. They have been emitting smoke and ashes at inter mit tant intervals for ages. They have not interferred in any way with commerce or development, and they cannot do so. All of them are miles away from the navigable waters or the grow ing towns and mining camps. ? Just as P.ryan was getting the domicile for that "dove of peace" under way comes the news of war in the Philippines. "The best laid plans of men and mice, etc." The "trust busters" are now after organized baseball. Are they trying to make the movement unpopular? YUKON RATE WAR IS NOW ON ?o-o? DAWSON, V. T? June G.?The long-1 promised rate war on the Yukon open-[ ed today when the White I'ass steam- j er Canadian and the Side Streams I Navigation Company's steamer Vi dette. allied to the Northern Commer cial Company by a through traffic ar rangement, sailed side by side tor; Whitehorse. Each company cut last j year's freight and passenger rate 50, per cent. There is no special move ment out. and it is uot expected thaC there will be much until che usual; fall travel out for the winter. Lake; La liar ge will probably not open for a week or teu days. The absence of snow in Southern Yukon last winter resulted in extra thick ice. and the cool weather of spring, with no wind, made the lake ice last. Steamers are now plying the Yukon river 2,000 miles northward from Labarge to St. Michael. The steamer Corwln reached St., Michael yesterday. This is the earl iest opening in thirty-seven years, one exception. Five oc?-an steamers will run to the < mouth of the Yukon from San Fran cisco and Seattle regularly. The Northern Navigation Company have the largest freight business for the Yukon in the history of tfTe company. The rate on their line from Coast points to Dawson is $50 per ton. o?o?o YUKON TRAFFIC PROBLEM BECOMES INTERESTING Interest in the transportation war for the Yukon river business is be coming intense. As yet we have not heard of any slashes in th<? passen ger rates, but the traveling public expects to be told soon that it is cheaper to travel than to stay at home. Late reports from Whltehorse indicate that it will not be many days before navigation on the mighty Yu kon will be in full swing.?Skagway Alaskan. o?o?o GLEANINGS FROM GREAT NORTHERN EMPIRE ?o-o? Prince Rupert is having a new court house built. It will be a temporary structure, and will be completed with in the next two months. ? * ? A fox farm is to be located some place near Prince Rupert. The pro moter of the enterprise already has secured a half dozen foxes, and he is looking for more. ? * ? Mrs. Hans Nelson, wife of a well known resident of Wrangell, and for merely a resident of ePtersburg, died last week at Wrangell. She is sur vived by her husband, a daughter and a son, all of Wrangell. * * * The citizens of Wrangell are pre paring for a celebration of the Fourth of July. Committees have been ap pointed, and it is proposed to make an old-fashioned, town affair of it. * * v The three forest service boats ar rived at Ketchikan last Saturday. One of them proceeded later to Petersburg, another to Sitka and the last to Fish Egg. They are being used by forest rangers in their work. * * * President O. L. Dickeson, of the White Pass, who arrived early this week from the South, stayed only a short time at Skagway when he pro ceeded to Whitehorse. and took per sonal charge of the White Pass end of the Yukon river traffic warfare. ? ? ? The White Pass has sent the Amer ican river steam White Seal into the Yukon traffic below Fort Gibbon at which point it will connect with the Pairbanks-Dawson White Pass steam ers. The White Seal will operate from Tanana to St. Michael, but will par ticulurly seek traffic from Iditarod and Kuby. It has been an independently f operated rive.r craft heretofore. ? ? * More than 1.000 tons of potatoes and. other vegetables were grown at Fair-1 banks last year in addition to the hay and grain that was raised. It is ex pected that this will be incerased this; year. ? * * A ship of the "Pirates of Lea" was J organised at Skagway the other day.1 Speaker E. B. t'ollins was one of the organizing pirates. The ship was christened "Goingyet," and she is a I sister ship of the "Goingsonie" of Jn-i neau. ? * ? The clipper launch, that will be used by the officers of the White Pass! on the Yukon river as.a yacht and for emergencies where great speed is de sired. arrived at Skagway on the Lee vlanaw the other day, and was trans ported to Whitehorse. * * ? Twenty tons of powder were set off in one blast at Prince Kupert last week. It was done by the street department. Earlier in the season | they used 50 tons in one blast when the top of a hill in the town was de-; stroyed. o?o?o SCANDINAVIAN GROCERY?Opp. City dock; just opened; fresh stock. Serial 01518.
