THE WHARF PROPOSITION.
THE JUNEAU wharf proposition
should be a matter of accounting
and the application of the sound
business axiom that every business
concern should pay a reasonable inter
est on the investment in it In mak
ing the rate of wharfage the actual
cost of the wharf at the present time
together with such improvements, if
any. as may be required, the present
Income and the estimated income for
the future should be taken as founda
tions from which to figure. Whether
or not the wharf has made or lost
money in the past. It has been a good
investment for Juneau. However, as
Mr. Willis has said, the demand for
municipal improvements comes from
too many quarters for the city to main
tain an enterprise of the magnitude
of the City Dock for the benefit of
shippers without a fair return ou the
money that is tied up in it.
No one favors the sale or lease of
the property so far as we know. At |
least no one has suggested the propo-'
sition in the city council. Juneau will
retain her municipal dock, and she
will continue to sell coal to her citi-'
zens at a price that is fair to them. On
the other hand, sound business princi
ples must be applied to the city's af
fairs. It would be unfair to tax . ^ J
property owners to maintain a dock at
a loss unless to prevent monopoly as j
existed in the early days of that insti
tution's career. Juneau has many
places to expend its revenues where
they will benefit all the citizens of the
That brings us to where we began.
The question is one of bookkeeping
and business, and The Empire has ab
solute confidence that the city council
will handle the matter in a manner
that will be fair to all concerned and
serve Juneau's best interest. It has
shown ample capacity and disposition I
to meet its responsibilities in too
many instances to question it at this
The late Gov. William Ogilvie, form
er Commissioner of Yukon Territory,
geologist and all round scientist, who
was as closely associated with the op
ening of the Canadian North as any
other man. has left a rare legacy to
those who survive him in his book.

son News urges that the book be made
a part of the curriculum of the public

IN THE WRONG PARTY.
? MOS PINCHOT cannot read Goo.
W. Perkins out of the Progres
sive party without reading
Theodore Roosevelt out too. Mr.
Roosevelt is Just as ardent a believer
in "the protection of private monop
oly' as Mr. Perkins. Mr. Roosevelt
is just as ardent an advocate of the
theory that "the trusts are useful and
sacred institutions," and that "those
who attack them are bent upon the
destruction of all healthy industry on
a large scale."
All that Amos Plnchot need do to
convince himself is to read Mr. Roose
velt's messages to Congress and his
public speeches since he left the
White House. Perkinism Is Roosevelt
Ism. and Rooseveltlsm Is Perkinism.
The corner-stone of the Progressive
structure is erected upon the princi
ple of regulated monopoly.
If Amos Pinchot stands for the de
struction of monopoly. Instead of its
regulation as stand Perkins and
Roosevelt, the only matter with hitn
is that he is In the wrong political
party. He belongs with Wood row Wil
son and the progressive Democrats and
not with Theodore Roosevelt and the
Here Is how they reason that Pin
chot must not drive Perkins out of the
Progressive party: If Perkins is in
tolerable. so is Boss Flinn; if both go.
there will be none to provide cam
paign funds; many investigations have
demonstrated that The Colonel likes
campaign funds; Perkins must be re
The debt that the United States
owes Colombia for taking Panama
away from that country is Just as great
an obligation now that it is proposed
to pay it as it was when it was sim
ply an accademlc theory. The best
way to treat a debt, if you have the
money. Is to pay it.
The defeat of the Constitutionalists
at Zacetacas possibly had something
to do with the hasty reconciliation of
Villa and Carranza. The presence of
Villa seems to be a necessary element
in securing Constitutionalist victories.
