ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG JOHN W. TROY. Editor. Telephone No. 3-7-1 Entered aa becoud-olabb matter November 7. 1912 ut the postolllce at Ju ueau. Alaska, uuder the Act of Mured J. 1679. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: U?e year, by mall ..$10.00 Six mouth*. by mail 6.00 Per moutb. delivered 1.00 ROOF OF THE CONTINENT CONQUERED TIJK "top oi tlu' continent" has boon scaled, not by Ih\ Cook..! in?r yet b Professor ilerschel Parker, but by a clergyman? Rev. A chdcacon Hudson Stuck, and companions. All are seasoned A alkalis, hence the success that crowned their ell'orts. Air. MeKit: . y is tlu- highest peak of the North American continent, at . .ill t-; forts hitherto made to reach its topmcrst; I?iiit resulted : failure. It is a matter of congratulation that the! feat was accomplished bv real Alaskans; but who else could have! been expected t do it? In deeds of this kind, where strength,* endurano and intelligence are needed, who are better fitted than' these men <>.' he North v ho know the country and its conditions' and who are nured to every phase of the rugged life that thei hard>" exploit : and voyagei*. must meet? i am > nt name of Mt. .McKinley was Di-na-le. By that I nana t wa.> Known long before the Russians acquired a foot hold .11 tlu country. Snow-capped, silent, majestic for uncounted Centura s perhaps the aborgines had gazed upon it with both awe and atlection. for was not the mountain which stood watch and ward with P.-na-le, now called by the prosaic name of .Mt. For aker, known > the ancients as "Di-an-le's Wife?" What son of ?? geographer it was who changed the names of thesi grand mountain peaks we do not know, but, it is sub mitted. almos* sacrilege was committed when the nomenclature' was thus "improved." Some sentiment might have inspired J the substitution <>! "McKinley" for De-na-le. but surely there was no M-niiment. apparent or real, in the changing of the name of I)i-na-le> helpmeet to "Foraker"?a name that stands for little that is l(?:t> ?>r inspiring in American history. Dr. Frederick A. Cook wrote a book in which he detailed with some circumstantially, but little verisimilitude, his alleged scaling Mt. Mckinley. I?ut the world will doubtless get in book form tlu adventures of Archdeacon Stuck and his brave companioi s u ale conquering the roof of the continent. And the book will be worth while. A I'ittsiuigh man happily announces that he has invented a typewriter that can spell. What will he do when she gets married ? INI ERENDKNCK DAY CELEBRATIONS MOST of the leading Alaska towns are busy making prepara tions for the celebration of Independence Day. The fires of patriotism seem to be burning more brightly than for several years past. The people are more hopeful; they afe tak ing on new courage, for the clouds of depression that have been hanging low for half a lecade bid fair to be dissipated by the sun of prosperity that is already beginning to rise. This feeling is as gmeral as it is welcome; and so Alaska towns wii oyfully celebrate the glorious Fourth. Juneau will put on her best attire and "cull out a holiday," and so will her neighbor- Douglas; and Sitka, the ancient capital, now coming into a new lif. and new prosperity,will observe the Nation's one hundred ami thirty-seventh bithrday in a manner befitting the oldest town on the l'acilic Coast. Thus the old and the new? Sitka the "ancient of days" long-forgotten, and Ruby-on-the Vukon, youngest of Alaska towns?will acclaim the day that I marked the foundation of a new and now mighty nation and the beginning o! a new freedom whose benign influences have girdled the earth. Speaking <>f climbers, what about Archdeacon Stuck? He is strictly entitled to be somewhat stuck-up over his success in getting up in the world. What? LIVING AND LEARNING AX OFFICIAL of tht Wells Fargo Express Company is quot ed as saying that the gross business of the express com panies has not been seriously diminished by the parcel l>o>t: that the loss in the small package business has been virtual ly offset by gains in tra lie where the post does not compete. This, then, is the result of a public convenience against which the combined express companies were arrayed for years. It was as serted again and again that a parcel post system would be in jurious to the companies to an extent that would amount to ruin. So strongly was the argument impressed upon Congress that the establishment of a parcel post on adequate scale was delayed for twenty years. There is, however, nothing in the outcome to surprise those who have given any attention to the operation of economic forces. The creation of a new energy or a new facility always generates new wealth and new activities to make use of it. Build a rail road across a desert and people will go there and found cities. Invent a typewriting machine and you do not drive secretaries out of business but make a demand for five times as many as before. Daniel Webste:* believed the opening of Western lands for homesteads would craw labor from New England and check its prosperity. Grave and reverend Senators denounced Seward's purchase of Alaska, ant denominated it an ice-box. The express companies are learning only what every generation of conserva tives learned before them?that the blessings of progress come to them as well as the progressives. DEMAND FOR ROADS FROM ALL ALASKA The Alaska Koad Commission has received rnanv petitions and requests from ail sections of the district call ing for aid and urging the construc tion of better roads and trails, but the limited appropriations of Congress have badly handicapped the work and favorable action cannot be taken this year. Col. W. P. Richardson, president of the road commission, is hopeful that at the next session of Congress appro priations will be passed allowing the commission to build roads and traile i to the many sections of the Territor> now crying for roads that its resourcet may be opened and developed. "Few people can realize," said the Colonel, "the great mineral resources of the Territory unless they have trav eled as I have Into many of the new sections being developed by the pros pectors and miners, who so frequent ly plead for roads they need and which they are entitled to have constructed, I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I > I I I I I I I II II 1 I I I 1 I II II II H I I I I I I I I I I i *? i I I CHARICK :: JL# %$ 0 M JEWELER & OPTICIAN ;; Is open for business in new store i on corner ;; jj FRANKLIN & FERRY STREETS jj 1 I 11 l 111 1111 111111 111 II i I 11111 but which the commission cannot build because of the luck of funds." | If Congress could be brought to re alize the great undeveloped wealth of the country depending upon the con struction of wagon roads and trails for their development large sums would be given the commission for the.work.?Vuldez Miner. o?o?o Piiy averaging to the square foot was struck in the Hoffman faction 011 'l!\a creek.
