A QUESTION THAT WONT DOWN.
THE question of houses in which to
lire will not down in Juneau.
The experience of I. J. Sharick.
recorded yesterday is that of others
who have houses to rent There are
about a score of applicants for every
available house. Juneau won't and
cannot develop as it ought until this
condition is met. The only way to
meet it is to build more houses. There
is no other question of more pressing
Importance before this city. What is
the use of planning big things that re
quire the employment of people if
there is no place for those who have
work here to live?
Representative Frank O. Smith, who
has contracted the habit of trying to j
give Southeastern Alaska to Canada.'
is a Maryland farmer, aged 55 years,
who is serving his first term in Con
gress. He lives in a Repablican dls
trict but was elected as a Democrat inj
the tidal wave of 1912. This is not j
necessarily intended as an obituary,
for Alaskans regard him as harmless, j
COME HOME. COLONEL; COME
WASHINGTON newspapers have
amusing accounts of the at
tempts of their reporters to in
terview Dr. Lyman Abbott concerning
the Mexican and free tolls propositions. j
He was evasive as to both questions.,
but said perhaps "we" think the
United States should have intervened 1
against both Huerta and the Const!- 1
tutionalists a long time ago. and that
"we" are not in favor of free tolls.;
Poor old Doctor! It was a shame for j1
The Colonel to stay away where the ?
Doctor could not consult him when 1
such stirring things were occuring at j
home. It must be embarrassing to the j
Doctor not to be certain as to what i
"we" think about these important t
matters. Get back. Colonel, quick. 11
and relieve the Doctor's distress. It t
is plain that his guessing at what you' i
would think is getting on his nerves.| t
I THE SILVER LINING.
E' VERY cloud is said to have a sli
ver lining. The bright spot In
the war clouds that have hung
?over the Gulf of Mexico and the South
: Pacific for the last two weeks is the
, demontsration of the preparedness of
| the American military establishment
| for service and its capacity to
serve when needed. In this instance
the performance of the navy was par
ticularly brilliant. Within one week
from the time that the United States
began preparing for armed conflict,
we had 17 war vessels in Vera Cruz J
harbor mounting 249 guns and carry
ing 9,000 men. The city had been cap
tured and 5,000 men were ashore,
fighting when and where necessary.
Another week saw a force of infan
try there and yesterday It, too, was
landed just nine days from the time
the city fell into the hands of Admir
Not only did the navy demonstrate
its mobility, but its officers and men
exhibited the fact that they can fight
on land as well as sea. Most of Ad
miral Fletcher's work was that of a
Brigadier-General, and the men did
the work of infantrymen and artillery
men, and they did the work they were
called upon to do well.
All of which is not only satisfying
to National pride, but It creates a
sense of confident security that is
worth a great deal.
The circumstances that Me.<ico does
not appreciate the decent and kindly
:reatment that the United States has
shown that country is no reason why
.ve should proceed to prove to them
hat we are what they think we are in
(tead of the decent sort of folk that
ve claim to be.
The Hearst-McLean cabal is ac
rused by the Washington Herald of
rying to prove that Wilson pulled off
he Mexican fleet movement to save
he free-tolls repeal. This is only one
>f the things that have contributed
o the popularity of the repeal bill.
