ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE!
Telephone No. 3-7-4 JOHN W. TROY, Editor and Manager. Published by the EMPIRE PRINTING COMPANY Entered an second-class matter November 7. 1912 at the postoflice at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: year, by mall $10.00 Six months, by mail 6.00 Per month, delivered 1.00 THE MOTIVE. APPARENTLY unable to under- > stand why a newspaper should j defend public officials ouly for; the reason that they have been un justly attacked. The Douglas Island News has been searching for a "mo tive" behind The Empire's defense of members of the Alaska Legislature whom Delegate Wickersham accused of hostility to the Alaska railroad bill recently passed by Congress. It thinks it has discovered the purpose to be an effort to defeat Delegate Wickersham for re-election. Wrong again, as usual. Whenever The Empire shall con clude that the best interest of the peo ple of Alaska can be better served by the defeat of Delegate Wickersham than by his re-election, if that timo shall ever arrive, it will say so and why, and it will try to make its mean-; ing just as plain as it has tried to make it with reference to the seven Alaska Senators whom he wrongfully assailed in the Congressional record. The Empire has always beeu among the first papers iu Alaska to give praise to Delegate Wickersham when he has worked in the interest of Al aska. It agrees with the Douglas Is land News that he did excellent work for the railroad bill. His speech open ing the debate in the House of Repre sentatives was exceptioually strong. If some of the unnecessary personal ities had beeu omitted it would have been stronger?stronger because, true or otherwise, they either never had any bearing on the subject matter of his speech or they had long since ceased to have. However, there was so much that was pertinent and ably presented that the speech was proper ly very effective. And Jt by no means constituted all the work that the Dele gate to Congress from Alaska did for! the railroad bill. He labored for it with might aud main from the hour that he concluded that a railroad should be built in Alaska by the gov ernment* until the bill had been finally nnased. !. No. The Empire has not defended members of the Alaska Legislature for the purpose of defeating Delegate Wickersham for re-election, but it could not and cannot yet see any rea son why any uewspaper should have endorsed the attack that he made up on them except to protect the man who had made the attack. It was cer tainly not because the members of the Legislature had done or meant to do anything inimical to the best in terest of Alaska or in opposition to the railroad bill. The Empire believes that the time has arrived when the people of Alas ka should quit the pernicious habit of attacking public officials unless the public good requires that they be at tacked?and, when made, charges against them should be based on facts. Generally speakiug and without ref erence to any specific incident, the determination? of Building Inspector A'instedt and the City Council to en-; force complianoe with the Juneau building ordinance is praiseworthy. Mr. Winstedt says the ordinance was well prepared, is comprehensive and meets the requirements of the situ-j ation in Juneau fairly. If that is cor rect, and we know of nothing to the contrary, it is well. However, If there are defects in the ordinance they should be corrected. At any rate the law should be regarded to the letter. The Indications that point to ap proaching war remind one of the old < Indian's sign of rain. The Indian is | BUSCH COTTAGE BUILDING. The handsome new cottage of Will iam Busch on his fine view lot on court house hill is rapidly nearing comple tion. The outside walls are up and the roof is now being placed. t t ? TESTING ROCK CRUSHER The Bush-Soles company, local con-! tractors, are today trying out the mu-1 nicipal rock crusher. SCHOOL POSITIONS FILLED. The school board has definitely se-i lected the following teachers for the accompanying positions: Miss McGill. Sth grade. Miss Couture, 1st grade. Miss Andrews, high school. Miss Morgan. 3rd grade. Miss Case. 4th grade. Miss Getchell. 6th grade. Miss Dyer. 2nd grade. Mrs. Struble, 7th grade. No action was taken on the 5th grade position nor on the principal and his assistant. Royal typewriters. See W. H. Case. ?3-17-tt. ' quoted as saying that the best sign ot rain is when it is black all around and pouring down in the middle. CARRANZA AND SOVEREIGNTY. CARRANZA asks Tor the removal of the United States forces from Vera Cruz 011 the ground that their presence is in violation of the National sovereignty, and then sug gests very plainly that the National sovereignty is represented by him? Gen. Carranza. himself. Yet he has not a soldier or civil representative within 500 miles of Vera Cruz, and the citizens of that place recognized Huer ta as the representative of Mexican sovereignty. These Mexican execu tives nre great men when they are looking at maps and have stenogra phers and typewriters convenient. While, apparently, London bankers do not like to turn down the Canadian borrowers, that was a pretty good hint that they gave them the other day when they asked that they not ask for so many and such large loans. ALASKA'S DEBT TO DEMOCRACY. (Cordova Times.) GOV. STRONG of Alaska and Gov. Lister of Washington, will leave Seattle on the 5th of next month for a tour of the sea coast towns. Cor dova should see that these distinguish ed visitors get a proper welcome. They are both vitally interested in the welfare of the territory, and should be able to tell our people what the latest plans for the development of our resources will do for us. The new ly organized Democratic club of Cor dova is trying to arrange a public meeting to be held on their arrival, at which all our citizens will be given an opportunity to meet them. If the plans as outlined are successful, the two Governors will deliver addresses while here and they may be sure of a packed house to hear them. Gov. Strong bids fair to become the most famous Governor that the Territory has ever had, for it seems certain that un der his administration the Territory is about to make wonderful progress. As a Democratic Governor he will come to Cordova as the representative of the party that has kept its pledges to the people, aud as the representative of the party that has done more to make Alaska a better place to live in and in crease the material welfare of us all in one short year than the Republican party has done in years of misguided government of Alaska. Is it any won der that Republicans by the score are allying themselves with the Democrat ic party in Alaska? Such political conversions show the earnest strivings of the conscience of an honest man to express his appreciation of work well done. Considering the deep gratitude that the people of Cordova feel for the Democratic party because of its ser vices to Alaska, we should all welcome (he opportunity to express that grati tude by giving a royal greeting to the two distinguished Democrats that will soon visit us. We can not do too much for them. If those Mexicans knew of the war feeling in Alaska and knew Alaskans better they would probably want to exclude Alaskans as well as Texans J when undertaking to whip the United States. If Carranza. Villa and Huerta join j forces there should be a war of suffi cient magnitude to create heroes enough to last the country for another 50 years. NOTICE TO CREDITORS.
