\\ ICKERSHAM'S TIDELANDS BILL
DELEGATE WICKERSHAMS bill for the survey and sale
of the tidelauds in front of and adjacent to the townsite of
Juneau will meet a pressing necessity should it be passed
by Congress. This is a proposition that has been much discussed
and has received the almost unanimous endorsement of the cit
izens. Juneau is a growing community. Its permanence is as
sured and, thereto;e. there promises to be a constantly increasing
population for many years to come. To accommodate this pop
ulation there must be an expansion of the area available for
townsite purposes. This is so potent that it cannot be successful
ly denied, and the reclamation of the tidelands will afford the
necessary territory that must be had to meet the increasing de
mands that will arise for business property.
By securing the tidelands for the use of the city the proposed
building of the waterfront boulevard which has been received
with favor, will bring the reclaimed tidelands area in close touch
with the present business portion of the town
Congress should pass this bill without hesitation. The tide
lands can be made use of now to the great advantage of a growing
town.
The fame of the Johnson family in the world of sport is
being added to daily. In this neck of the woods Douglas* John
son has been added to the list of the other Johnson champions that
include the American League's premier pitcher. California's ten
nis champion and others?not to mention "Li'l Mistah A'tha,"
who is having such a hard time of it in Chicago.
A COAST OBJECT LESSON
TWO steamers plying in Alaska waters have been wrecked
within the past two weeks and in both cases the alleged
cause of the disasters have been attributed to the same
cause?uncharted rocks upon which the vessels impinged them
selves. Fortunately no lives were lost in either of the wrecks,
but this was a mere matter of luck, because under less propi
tious conditions there might have been a heavy toll of life.
These ever-recurring wrecks not only accentuate the necissity
of more lighthouses and other aids to navigation, but they
would seem to point to the need of a revision of the marine
charts by making new surveys.
The Alaska coast is notorious for its insufficiency of light
houses and navigation aids, and although there has been an in
crease in their number from year to year there is still a lament
able lack of these necessary adjuncts to safe-guard navigation
of the coast waters.
The coast line of Alaska's southern neighbor. British Co
lumbia. is dotted with lights, and the traveler needs but to con
trast the condition there with the scarcity of lights along our
own coast and his conclusions will be to our own discredit. Alas
ka needs more lighthouses and lights and she needs them now,
and not next year or seven years hence.
After all it might fall to the lot of one of those rebellions,
that are more or less permanent inhabitants down in Mex
ico, to teach the world the effectiveness of aeroplanes as engines
of war.
IiOir.HT, NOT "THRUST"
RECENTLY former President Taft in an address admonished
President Wilson to "go slow on Philippine independence."
Then he went on to say that "the islands were thrust upon
us by circumstances over which we had no control." If his infor
mation as to the incapacity of the natives is no more accurate
than this, it is not entitled to much consideration at the White
House.
Unless history has played us false the Philippines were not
thrust upon us. On the other hand by imperative orders from
Washington our peace commissioners, who negotiated the treaty
with Spain, or Paris, against their own judgment paid $20,00.
000 for them. After protracted debate in the United States
Senate the treaty was ratified with only three votes to spare,
many Republicans opposing it. It would, therefore, seem as if
we "thrust" the Philippines upon ourselves very laboriously and
expensively, for a purpose which is yet a mystery.
(iotham newspaper writers are telling the people of the
country that The Colonel is not satisfied with his arrangements
with the Outlook and that he will establish a magazine in New
York of his own as soon as his contract with that publication
shall have expired.
While the University of Washington's eight-oared team
onlv won third place in the great intercollegiate regatta on the
Hudson, the three first boats came in so closely together that the
trip of the Pacific Coast champions East was probably worth
to the Western universities what it cost the people of Seattle
