ALASKA DAiLY EMPIRE
Telephone No. 3-7-4
JOHN W. TROY, Editor and Manager.
Published by the EMPIRE PRINTING COMPANY
Kntered as second-class matter November 7, 1912 at the postofflce at Ju
neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1S79.
SUBSCRIPTION RATES:
Q9* year, by mall $10.00
Six months, by mall .' 6.00
Per month, delivered 1.00
by the dollar and cents
standard.
THERE are some people who re
fuse to measure a foreign poli
cy?or a domestic, for that ma*
ter?by any other standard than dol
lars and cents. Let these consider
that the United States has reached a
stage of development where the com
mercial life of the Nation depends up
on its foreign markets. Lost year we
exported from this country products
of farm and factory amounting in
value to 52.465.SS4.14?. That is
two billion, four hundred and sixty
three and a half million dollars more
than free tolls to American coastwise
ships would amount to. and to a con
siderable degree the extent of this
trade depends upon the good will of
foreign countries.
The President and Mr. Bryan are|
not only right in principle but they
are pretty good business men.
If the centralization process should
continue, the President and his Cab
inet will become big policemen. Then
we might have to create bureaus to
handle the foreign affairs, the customs,
the army and the navy, interstate com
merce and other little things like that.,
prohibition and centraliza
TION*.
Reformers with but a single
panacea for all the ills to which
man is heir have contracted the
habit of taking their troubles to Wash
ington. The prohibitionists, following;
the lead of some of the woman suff
rage advocates, have determined to!
make their fight against John Barley
corn a National matter. They are'
seeking to secure an amendment to
the Federal Constitution providing for(
the suppression of the liquor traffic
Former Mayor George F. Cotterill. of
Seattle, has announced that he will
make that and a woman suffrage con
stitutional amendment parts of his
platform in his race for the Democratic
nomination for United States Senator.
The prohibitionists claim that 55
per cent, of the American people live
in prohibition territory, and that
nearly 72 per cent, of the area of the
Nation is dry- They advance these
circumstances as their warrant for
making the question a National one.
Do the prohibitionists fully realize
where the success of their program
| would lead? It would mean the polic
ing of the country by the Federal gov
| eminent. It would add thousands to
the already too numerous petty Fed
eral rulers that arc quartered on the
people. It would be another blow to
self-government and further centrali
zation of authority in Washington.
We have seen this class of legisla
tion used to regulate all manner of lo
cal matters. The Federal internal rev
enue laws and the statutes regulating
the use of the mails and prohibiting
the white slave traffic have been fruit
ful in placing local police matters in
the Federal rather than State courts.
If we add the liquor traffic to the Na
tional matters, we had as well turn
all the criminal and police functions of
the States over to the National govern
ment. and be done with It.
One would think the prohibitionists
would be satisfied with capturing State
after State, as they have been doing,
rather than to take the risk of align
ing State right advocates against their
cause. Particularly is that true when
the circumstance that most of the
dry territory is in that part of the
country where the doctrine of State
rights is most strongly adhered to is
considered.
The return of prosperity to the min
ing industry of Ketchikan indicated
by a particularly lucid interview given
The Empire by B. L. Thane the other
day is one of the pleasing features of
the year's developments.
The success that has thus far at
tended the efforts of the Draper Club
to provide Juneau with a public li
brary is another "". idence of the unity
of the Juneau spirit. The great turn
out at their May day dance was cred
itable to the people of this city.
An least the Dirigo's mishap was not
chargeable to an uncharted rock.
Whidby Island was located on the
maps sometime ago.
This weather causes the fans to
have increased interest in Jackson and
Molloy's wonders.
FEATURES OF THE CAMP
FIRE GIRLS' ENTERTAINMENT
Besides the character songs and Wo
helo ceremony that will be included in |
the program on Friday. May Sth. in
Elks' hall, the Camp Fire Girls will
dance some quaint old folk dances that
will be seen for the first time in Ju
neau. "
Judge Gunnison has kindly promised
to make a speech during the perform
ance: and the varied evenings' enter
tainment will close with a dance. Prof.
Sumpf has been entrusted to provide
the music.
Photographs have today been placed
on view in the stores, and they all
form striking pictures.
Miss Kempthorne intends to send
them for exhibition to the Outdoor
and Wohelo magazines. ' '
Tickets for the entertainment and
dance are on sale at Barragar's and
Nelson's stores.
