ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG JOHN W. TROY, Editor. Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7, 1912 at tlie postotlice at Ju ueau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3, 1&79. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: year, by mail $10.00 Six months, by mail 5.00 Her month, delivered 10i? A W1LSONIAN CHARACTERISTIC THE definite and decisive manner in which President Wilson brought the currency problem that has been worrying states men in the United States for so long a time to a focus is characteristic of him. The country has a competent man at its head, lit' is one that does things. He arrives at conclusions, and he has the nerve necessary to execute in accordance with his conclusions. Under his leadership there will be progress. The rare simplicity of the President's method of thinking makes it possible for him to reach definite decisions where other statesmen have hesitated. He has a way of keeping his mind free and the ultimate end that it is sought to arrive at constantly in view; and the end with him always is the welfare of all. He sees clearly and reasons from cause to effect with an exactness that is inspiring. He is able to disregard the special pleas of special interests in a manner that is singularly fortunate for the best interests of the country. In the special instance that has called forth this comment, the currency problem, the President has been fortunate in the fact that the Democratic party, upon which he mrst depend for votes to put his program through Congress, has no record that it must measure up to for consistency's sake. It has been in a position to approach the question in a scientific frame of mind, and to listen to the conclusions of the President without preju dice. The result has been that the President and the leaders of his party in Congress have offered a plan of action that is, appar ently, acceptable to all the people of the country, save, perhaps, those that are profiting unduely from the inelastic and restricted currency system that is now in force in the Nation. Despite all the effort of the civilized peoples of Europe the Balkan nations that stood shoulder to shoulder for so long in the war against the Mohammedans are fighting among themselves over the spoils of that contest, and once again the fields of Mac edonia will be drenched in human blood. It is too bad. People had hoped for better things from the Balkans. We had thought that they had made more progress, and were nearer a modern civilization. Apparently we had expected too much. JUNEAU'S BUILDING IN THE first half of this year two firms of contractors have completed and got under way buildings and alterations to build ings in this city the total cost of which will amount to more than $125,000. Other contractors have been active, and dozens of buildings have been erected and scores of others altered and improved through day work where there have been no contracts. This activity would have been greater had it not been impossible at times to get supplies and material with which to prosecute the work. Yet there has been no attempt to force a boom at Ju neau. The building, the growth and the developments have been the natural results of the opening of her great ore deposits. Peo ple have been simply preparing to care for the business that is offering at their doors. Juneau's growth is and has been un forced. In fact it has not kept up with the natural demand. It must be faster in the future than it has been in the past. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer says that "nothing on earth, above it or below it, could have induced Taft to sign the sundry civil appropriation bill." No. nor the tariff bill nor, probably, the currency bill that will be passed. That, in part at least, is why the people of only two States voted to give him a chance to sign or veto anything. JUNEAU'S TITLE CLEAR THERE is not a spot on that part of the earth that lies within the domain of Uncle Sam where there is greater cause for a genuine, patriotic Fourth of July celebration this year thari in Juneau. Since the last natal day of the Nation the princi ples of the Declaration of Independence ? the adoption of which caused the Fourth of July to be set apart as a day dedicated to freedom and liberty in thought and action and as a holiday com memorative of the right of people to govern themselves ? have been applied to Alaska, and developments have made this city the best there is in this good country. Juneau's title to a celebration is clear, so let us celebrate and let us be glad that we are Ameri cans and Alaskans as we do it. QUEEN MARY suppressed a book that Princess Patrica of Connaught wrote concerning her impressions of Americans and Canadians for fear, it is said, that it would give of fense to those on this side of the Atlantic. With all appreciation for the consideration the gracious Queen has exhibited for the feelings of her North American kinfolk, her solicitude was un necessary. Americans and Canadians really enjoy being criti cised by a pretty young lady and if Princess "Pat" has failed to get the viewpoint of the New World, amusement would be the harshest emotion that she could possibly arouse. UNCLE SAM A BOY AGAIN UNCLE SAM will celebrate his 137th birthday tomorrow with a spirit that would indicate that he has discovered the germ of eternal youth that has been sought so persistently by the sages of the ages. He will play ball, shoot off fire-crackers, make spreadeagle speeches, run foot races and otherwise per form as he did in the days of his boyhood with all the enthusiasm that is characteristic of his natural buoyancy. And why not? His ideals have remained as they were when he was given to the world by the men of '76, and he has but recently renewed his confession of faith and received a new baptism of the spirit that inspired his fathers. It is meet and proper, then, that he should feel young, kick up his heels and enjoy himself on his birthday as becomes one that is in possession of the vigor of the spirit of the youth that looks forward toward a future of usefulness and happiness rather than backward toward things that have been. -C-++ I I CHARICK JLa ? k/ JEWELER & OPTICIAN Is open for business in new store on corner j FRANKLIN & FERRY STREETS f HATS AND SHOES TO BE GIVEN AWAY! ? o-o ?
