ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG JOHN W. TROY, Editor. Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered a* second-class matter November 7. lai-' at the postotlice at Ju ueau, Alaska, under the Act of March 3, 1S79. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: U^e year, by uuui $10.00 Six mouths, by mail 6.00 1 1'er mouth, delivered l.Oo I ONE ALAKA PAPER IS SATISFIED THK Iditarod Pioneer is pretty well satisfied with political con ditions in Alaska and the Nation generally. Events have demonstrated that it is thoroughly in tune with the public sentiment ol the Alaska people and the American people. In July last it placed at the head of its editorial colmun the names of Wilson and .Marshall for President and Vice President; James Wickersham for Delegate to Congress, and J. F. A. Strong for Governor. In August the people of Alaska re-elected Judge Wick ersham Delegate to Congress, so his name was taken down. A little later it placed the name of Henry Roden for Territorial Senator with those of Wilson, Marshall and Strong. Vet some what later the name of D. A. Sutherland was added as its other candidate for Senator, and the names of W. T. Burns, E. if. Col lins. Pan Driscoll and J. J. M daily were placed with the others as; its candidates ;\>r membership in the House of Representatives. At the election in November the people of the Nation elected Wilson and .Marshall, and the people of the Fourth Division elect ed Roden. Sutherland, Burns, Collins, Driscoll and Mulally, leav onl) the name of J. F. A. Strong at the Pioneer masthead. In April, the President appointed Major Strong Governor, and the Pioneer's victory was comple e. Its straight ticket was success ful. though i; took three elect ons to clean up the slate, and neces sitated the election of Democrats, Republicans, Progressives and Independents in political divisions of three different classifica tions. Commenting upon this remarkable chain of circumstances,; tin- Pioneer modestly says; "The Iditarod Pioneer does not claim any credit for election of any of the gentlemen mentioned above. Their own worth is responsible. But it is gratifying to learn what the Iditarod Pioneer thought on July G all Alaska thought August 13 and November 5, and President Wil son approved April 18, 1913." Those Senator- that are further reducing the tariff sched ules from the rates fixed by the Underwood bill may desire to prevent the House from getting all of the popularity. ONE WOULD EXPECT BETTER THINGS OF LESLIE'S THE revenue cutter Thetis has been converted into a floating court and is about to proceed to the Alaskan coast carrying a cargo of judges and court officials. It will stop first at Sitka and from that point go up all the navigable rivers. All cases that have arisen since the close of navigation will be tried on board, with juries called from the vicinity.?Leslie's Weekly. At least Leslie's did not attempt to particularize just which "navigable rivers" about Sitka will be ascended, nor did it ven ture t-? >ay when "the close i f navigation" occurred at that place. Really, >?ne would expect better things than this from Leslie's, for which J. J. Underwood is a writer on Alaska topics and whose own Robert I). Heinl has visited this Territory. With two good pitchers, everybody hitting, and all on their toes all the time that Douglas team is well calculated to develop baseball enthusiasts. It is no wonder that all the people on the other side of the channel are becoming fans. Juneau Tide Lands Bill Before Congress (Continued from Page 1.) in reference to the matter referred to' in my l*-tt?-r and bill 1 a ill notify you further." Delegate to Secretary of the Interior Delegate Wickers.hum. in writiig to the Secretary of the Interior, said: "Herewith I inclose tour your infor mation a copy ot 11.

"Herewith I inclose a statement in! relation to the redemption of the Ju neau tide flats which was prepared by the Juneau Commercial Club which gives the reason why this should be done. The town is very limited it. area and unless it is permitted to extend to this tide land must inevitably be crippled for want of room. "There is another item of In'erest to your I>epartment which is nor. cov ered by -he bill but which it may be necessary to cover by some amend ment The Auk Indians have a num ber of houses situated on the shore back of a part of the seventy-seven acres of t de lands which is mentioned in the bil . Some arrangement ought to be made by which their village could be surveyed and title conveyed to them. Their property is not. on t ie tide land proper but is immediate ly adjoining and practically berween the tide Und and Juneau. "I wish this matter could he re ferred to some one in your Depart ment to whom I could make full ex planation and if you will advl*e me whom I can consult with as a repre sentative of your Department I will cull us suuu us may be and go over ilie mailer fully, ll is a mailer of very great importance to Juucuu, which lias now reached its maximum or habitable j area aud tuust have more ground."
