ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG JOHN W. TROY. Editor. Telephone No. 3-7-4 Kiitered as second-claas matter November 7. 1912 at the poatotlice at Ju neau. Aiaaku. under the Act of March 3. 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: CX*e year, by mail 310.00 Six mouth*. by mail 6.00 Per month, delivered 1.00 A PANIC SUPPRESSED WE ARE told that a financial panic that might well have been the most disastrous in many years was averted only a few days ago, because Wall Street has discovered that it is: dealing with a new kind of President. For years the Government's established policy in the matter of financial depression has been simple and fatal. Washington waited until the panic had begun, until confidence and credit were undermined, and then turned the United States Treasury) over to Wall Street, while the stock gamblers salvaged what they coLld from the wreck. The W ilson policy is to suppress the panic at the start and not at the finish. With this end in view Secretary McAdoo announced that he was prepared to issue $500,000,000 in emergency currency un der the Aldrich-Vreeland act. Wall Street recovered immediately, from its hysteria and its bankers, with characteristic patriotism, began to denounce the Secretary for his "absurd offer." The fact is now pointed out with a wealth of detail that there is plenty of currency in circulation and that no emergency currency is necessary, but a week or so ago Wall Street was point ing out with an equal wealth of detail that one of the disturbing ele ments in the situation was the necessity that would exist in a! few weeks for immense sums to move the crops. The truth is that there was plenty of money all the time, and except for the con dition of the European money market, there was no reason what ever for Wall Street's attack of nerves. Proving it is the most important service that the Treasury has rendered by its ofTei of emergency currency. Wall Street's hysteria was rapidly inoculating the entire country, and the Wil son administration has -topped the nonsense before it became serious. THK LAST WORD IN STEAMSHIPS IT IS claimed that the Imperatur, the "largest ship afloat," which recently completed her maiden voyage from Hamburg to New York, adds something more than magnitude to the record of ocean liners. She augments the luxury of millionaire travel. No oth.-r feature of her excellences or extravagances has given rise to more admiration than this. The thirfty German of simple habits has developed a sea style that makes the aristocratic Bri ton gasp and the affluent American stare. It is told that the bright particular stars in the glittering galaxy of luxuries, which comprise ballrooms, palm courts, Pom peian baths, and grills and cafes de luxe, are a pair of apartments called by some "self-contained flats," and by others "Kaiser suites." Each of these is said to contain accommodations for ten persons, including servants. They have private dining, as well as drawing room; also private decks "floored and walled with green marble, to which one steps from the French windows of the dining room." It is added that the cost of either of these suits for a trip during the busy season is $5,000 and $.'>,500 dur ing the slack season. But why quote figures in matters of this kind? The poor will continue to walk on land, and never go to sea in these floating p; latial apartment houses. ALASKA'S SUMMER CLIMATE SPEAKING about the weather, who is there, who likes sun shine and warmth, that can truthfully complain of the quality of weather that has prevailed in this section for considerably more than a month past? These June days are beautiful, indeed, and if the wealthy denizens of the sweltering cities of the East could but realize that here in Alaska there is a veritable summer paradise the steamship companies would be swamped with pas sengers. Alaska's resources Have been tlie suujeci oi siuiy, uui >?*it ers, for some reason or other, have devoted but little attention to our climate, except to condemn it. They have taken it for granted that nothing could be said in defense of Alaska's climate. How could they, when icebergs, eternal snows, polar bears and fur-clad Eskimos are always associated in the minds of the peo ple of the I'nited States whenever the name of Alaska is men tioned. t?o to any Eastern city and meet the people; and if they should ask you where you live and you say "Alaska," immediate ly they shudder as if stricken by a sudden icy blast, direct from the North Pole, and button up their coats. If you should at tempt to explain to them that Alaska's climate is better than their own. they gaze upon you with an incredulous stare and mentally they place you in the Ananias club. The icebergs, the polar bear, the Eskimo are all visualized, and it is an almost nope less task to enlighten their cold and dark understanding. However, much good work has been done in disseminating real information about Alaska as a summer resort, as the yearly increasing stream of travel indicates. Some time it will be borne in on the minds of the benighted Easterners, yes and Westerners, that Alaska has an ideal summer climate, and that nowadays, icebergs, totem poles and peltry are no longer its leading attrac-i tions.

The trip was marred by an accident that might have proved fatal. In casting Mrs. Taylor fell in and went under, and but for the timely assistance of some of her companions she probably would have drowned. Before the accident the party was having good luck. Afterward the trout refused to bite. In spite of the accident the trip was thoroughly en joyed. The "Luca I'." called for the Gam bler bay mail last night. Messrs.
