ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE] gubhshed by the EMPIRE PRINTING COMPANY j JOHN W. TROY, Editor and Manager. Telephone No. 3-7-4 Enteral as second-class matter November 7. 1912 at the poBtofflco at Ju aeau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3, 1S79. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: toe year, by mall $10.00 Six months, by mall 6.00 Per month, delivered 1.00 JOIN THE COMMERCIAL CLUB. THE campaign of the Juneau Commercial Club for more mem bers and a re-awakened interest in the organization should meet with a ready response. The era of growth and de velopment in Alaska is now upon us, and the pace at which pro gress will move will soon be swift. Already the Territory is at tracting the attention of the world as never before. Men in all sections of the country are looking to Alaska as a place to go to or as a promising field in which to make investment, and Juneau is looked upon as the leading city in the Territory. The people of this city should organize and be in position to take the lead in work that will be necessary to give intelligent direction to those things of a public nature that will come with this development, and to protect and advance the interests of Juneau all the time. There is no better vehicle for this task than a wide-awake and tive commercial club. The Juneau Commercial Club has done; lot of good work along these lines already. It could do more it were supported more generally, and had the benefit of the nsel and ability of all instead of a few. Every business man ne city, the property owners and others who are interested in welfare of Juneau and Alaska should join the club and at end its meetings. Senator Fall, Republican, of New Mexico, who has attacked the administration's Mexican policy, is a .corporation lawyer ; who was a Southern Democrat but for whom the Democratic party became too progressive. He is interested in Mexico and is attorney for many interests whose properties located there are suffering on account of the disturbed conditions in that country. For him to think that the immediate restoration of an orderly condition in Mexico is the most important thing before the country is the most natural thing in the world. He is a be liever in dollar diplomacy as are a great many of those who are doing business near the Mexican border. OLDEST DAILY PAPER TALKS OF ITSELF THE SKAGWAY DAILY ALASKAN passed into its seven teenth' year with the beginning of the present month. The Alaskan made its first appearance Feb. 1, 1898, and has issued continuously since that date. It is the oldest daily news-i paper published in Alaska. In commenting upon its eventful career and the outlook the Skagway paper says: "Since its establishment the ownership of the Daily Alaskan has changed hands several times, but through all these changes the policy of the paper has ever re mained the same?the advancement of the best inter ests of the Territory as a whole and of those of the town of Skagway in particular. "The Daily Alaskan, in common with all the busi ness interests of the Territory, has had its lean years and its years of plenty, but through them all has re tained its faith in the future greatness and stability of the wonderful region which the boundaries of the Ter ritory embrace and has always felt assured that in time would come a recogintion and understanding of the immense resources which were only awaiting the magic touch of capital to awaken them into life and activity. "With the steps that are now being taken by the Federal Government for the opening up of the Terri tory we believe that the time we have so long hoped for is near at hand and we shall with renewed hope and cour age continue our efforts for the welfare and advance ment of the land which we have adopted as our home." Our progressive friends are planning upon getting all that they can out of the magic of The Colonel's popularity and voice and capacity for campaigning this year. They have him slated for two weeks in Maine and two weeks in Pennsylvania and for the nomination for Governor in New York. However, so far as the last named honor is concerned, it is not certain that they could not do better. Oscar Strauss, the Progressive candidate, received more votes for Governor than Roosevelt received in New York for President at the election in 1912. This weather suggests that Juneau might spend a little time profitably in organizing for the baseball season. An inventory of the material on hand should be taken immediately and the decision made as to what is required in order to give the people entertainment and recreation such as no sport provides as well as the great National game. TWO INTERESTING LETTERS FROM CHISANA DIGGINGS E. J. Sliter, writing to a rrtend In Juneau under date of February 1st at Chisana says after a months' resi-1 dence in that place. "This does not look like a mining camp to me. No; new strikes have been made during j the winter, but plenty of prospecting has been done. Nearly everyone is discouraged and many are leaving ever)- day for interior camps and the Outside. Grub is 35 to 75 cents per pound and not too plentiful. There is no work to be had nor a dollar to be made." he says the travelling over the glacier was tough and that many horses were lost in the crevasses and some men had narrow escapes. Mar tin Crahin slipped in one and dropped i thirty feet but was rescued. Frank Pratt well known mining op erator, formerly of Candle, writing from Cb'-ana under date of February 11 says: "The camp looks prosperous and healthy. There are many fine cabins and about 350 people in the camp. Grub is selling at 30 cents per pound." DRUG STORE PURCHASE AN ERROR.
