ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
Published by the EMPIRE PRINTING COMPANY JOHN W. TROY, Editor and Manager. Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7. 1912 at the postofflce at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1279. SUBSCRIPTION RATE8: Q?e year, by mall $10.00 | Six months, by mall 6.00) Per month, delivered 1-00 GOOD NEWS. THE assurance that Charles Goldstein will erect a five-story, modern, fire-proof building during the present year in which to house his big stores is good news to the people of Ju neau. It will mark another long forward stride in the permanent development of the city. Mr. Goldstein has been planning for this progressive departure for sime time. Inability to secure a suitable location for his business during the period of construc tion threatened to frustrate his purpose until he was successful in securing a lease on the McGrath corner, announcement of which was made yesterday. Happily this last obstacle has been removed, and the city will share benefits with an enterprising merchant in the fruition of his long cherished plans. ??????? We can imagine no better use for the navies of the world than for them to join in a friendly parade half way round the world?unless it be a mission of mercy such as that now being performed by the ships of Japan. THE SEWERAGE QUESTION. THE complaint that has been made with reference to Juneau's sewerage system which permits the dumping of the city's sewage at a point on the water front above low tide is sound. The condition should be remedied at the earliest possible moment. However, this much can be said: The sewerage system of the city has been greatly improved during the last year. The city council expended quite a lot of money in extending the system in parts of the town where there was nothing between the residents and intolerable conditions. Juneau is growing fast, and like with all rapidly growing towns the demands upon the municipal treas ury have been heavy. The city is not permitted to contract a debt beyond the anticipated annual income, and, necessarily, some of the work that is needed very much has had to go over until an other year when new funds will become available. In the meantime all the garbage and refuse that does not go into the sewers should be dumped beyond the danger line. If we cannot make needed improvements, we must do the best we can with the means at our command. Those American horses that take their exercise on the Juar ez race tracks may be Constitutionalists. They have broken two records since Huerta's men lost control of the city. CLEARING THE DECKS FOR PROGRESS THE Seattle Post-Intelligencer, for more than a generation the strongest high tariff champion of the Coast, says "the taritF has been taken out of the realms of uncertainty." It believes this, with Wilson's declaration for peace, and the fact "the banking and ciurrency bill, now a law, is universally recog nized as a vast improvement over the previous law, and promises to be of immense and permanent value to the business of the country," have opened the way "for a final settlement along the lines of co-operation between the government and the big in dustrial corporations, and for a removal thus of the one thing which operates to keep investors out of the market." That is justification of the position of President Wilson and his supporters in the last campaign from one of the ablest of their antagonists in that fight; and it is an admission that the President and those associated with him in law-making and law enforcing are keeping the faith. It is a fair and honorable con-! fession, and in line with the attitude of the best thought of the country. The decks of the old Ship of State are being cleared of ac cummulated debris and she will soon be making undreamed-of progress. If Gen. Huerta would pray for a just cause as earnestly as he prays for good generals it might profit Mexico more. NEW YEAR IS DOING WELL. IT IS now admitted that the Alaska railroad bill will pass both branches of Congress and be signed by the President within a few weeks at least. That it will be followed by legislation that will facilitate the opening of the coal lands of the Territory' is admitted. The tariff barriers to trade and commerce have been removed. The Panama Canal will soon be completed, fur ther reducing the cost of those things that are essential in the work of developing the natural resources of the country. The new year is unfolding to view the good things that it has in store for Alaska with astounding rapidity. The Petersburg Progressive has passed its first milestone. | It is a healthy yearling. GLEANINGS OF GREAT NORTHERN EMPIRE ci ?f. or The cold weather and the winds are interfering with the catches of the fishermen of Southeastern Alaska, ac- cc cording to the Ketchikan Miner. * * ? o* The Standard Oil company is lay- si ing in a stock of oil at Ketchikan fr that will enable Ashing craft and the Alaska liners that burn oil to secure a fuel supply at that point whenever re- uj quired. di ? ? ? a The Canadian-Klondike company, of ai Dawson, operated one of its dredges hi 271 days in 1913. This beats all Klon dike records, and is believed to sur- j pass any record In the North. The tr previous best record in the Klondike ri was 238 days held by the same dredge, j pi Whitehorse is iu the midst of an ex ting curling tournament A dozen ' more rinks are in the contest. * # * E. Vaglio and John Conta, of Van mver. will in the early spring drive ?0 head of cattle into the Chisana rer the Kluane trail with which to tpply the new mining district with esh beef. * ? * It is said that in the various clean is that were made last season in the 'edging operations in the Klondike ton of lead in the shape of bullets id shot that had been discharged by jnters ana miners was recovered. ? ? * Prospectors in the Totatlanlka dis lct below Fairbanks on theTanana ver are turning to fox farming. Mur ay Brothers and Cook were the 9rst to branch out In that business when they secured a beautiful Bllver gray feinalo and a black male fox. Others then went into the business. ? * * Royal R. Pullety of Skagway, a graduate of the University of Wash ington. who earned fame while at that institution us a football player ajid ] member of the eight-oar rowing crow, ? recently arrived at Skagway from Daw- 3 son where he is employed by one of J tho big dredging companies as an < electrical engineer. He will leave soon ^ for a trip to the States. j * * * j Tho Alaska Co-Operatlve Fish com- i pany of Wrangell has contracted to ? supply a San Francisco cafe with one ton of fresh fish every week. It is [ thought this will be the beginning of ? the marketing of Alaska fish direct ! from the producer to the consumer. [ ? ? * The Wrangell Sentinel says that > that town is infested with the lot 4 jumper, and it advised the people to * prepare themselves to protect their < property. 4 * J LOST FUR IS RECOVERED. 1 ?*? | Miss Klonda Olds has recovered 3 the brown fur neck piece which was 1 lost Sunday night while she was sleigh j riding with other Juneau high School i students between Juneau and Sheep creek Sunday night which was adver tised for in The Empire yesterday eve ning.
