SEATTLE BUSINESS
MAN IS ENCOURAGED
?
William Pigott. president of the
Seattle Car & Foundry company and
vice-president of the Pacific Coast
Steel company. believes President
Wood row Wilson will carry out his
??anti-trust" legislative program, with
certain amendments which Congress
is likely to place in the administra
tion bills and that business will be
better. He returned last night from
an extended business trip to the East,
where he made a careful study of
conditions, thereby ascertaining, he
said this morning, that Seattle's posi
tion is a very happy and fortunate!
one and that the Pacific Coast is due I
for a big revival of trade, commerce
and Industrial development.
" The administration regulative trade
and trust bill will be passed, perhaps
not as first drawn, and It will be well
that these matters are finally dispos
ed of now." said Mr. Pigott. "Person
ally. I have determined, after making
a careful scrutiny of business and
business men?the manufacturers and
public sentiment In the East, that
Investors of the country?are not so
much afraid of the progressive legis
lator in Republican, in Democratic or
in Progressive ranks, as he is In fear
of the professional politician who ad
vocates extreme radicalism and stirs
up false Issues for the sole and selfish
purpose of grabbing an office."?Seat

DAWSON MAKES
UNDCRSIRA6LES WALK
i
Dawson Is conducting i campaign
against undesirable residents. Those ,
who are found to be of :he unwanted
class who are subject tj deportation
are being "bluetlcketed" out of the
country.
The Dawson News of July 17 says:
'Two of the ten men who were
rounded up the first of the week and
taken before E. E. Stockton, immi
gration inspector, on the ground that
they were undesirables, have been
bluetlcketed. They were found to bo
aliens, and, after a careful examina
tion. were told that their jjresenco
here no longer was required. They
were Informed of the time of the
departure of the next steamer, and
are understood to have taken the
track for another country.
"The others who were up for exami
nation were not all found of the
most desirable stripe, but some as
i sorted they are Canadian citizens, and
In that event cannot be deported.
They are being watched, and so
long as they walk the straight and
narrow path are exempt from arrest
on any specific charge, but the police
say that while the matter of citizen
ship Is being looked up carefully, the
movements of any under suspicion
also are being watched carefully."
Newspaper Approves.
Commenting upon the action of the
Immigration inspector tho Dawson
News says:
"The action tanen oy iuiuiiB?iwy
Inspector Stockton to rid the city of
undesirables is to be commended.
He should, and doubtless will, re
ceive the support of all the law-abid
ing citizens of the community. Many
business men spoke yesterday In
praise of the step, and were em
phatic in the pronouncement that
the city ill can afford to have their ilk
sojourning here.
"The tinhorn and surething gambler
and his stripe are a detriment to
every line of legitimate business and
enterprise of the community. Business
houses find that sudh undesirables
get away with the hard-earned cash
of wage-earners and that as a conse
quence bills are not paid, and the
injury is felt all along the line.
"When it becomes known In other
cities that Dawson is making short
shrift of the sharks, the town will
have little more trouble on the old
score."
STANDARD OIL PLANT TO
BE FINISHED AUG. 15
Great progress is being made on
the Standard Oil company's storage
depot Just South of Juneau and it is
now believed that the work will be
complete by August 15.
The pile driving for the dock has
just been completed and the pre
liminary work on the foundations for
the big storage tanks is well advanced.
The warehouses and cottages for the
help that will be employed are also
progressing satisfactorily.
W. J. BRYAN ON THE Jf
COLOMBIAN AWARD I,
We believe that thinking pooplo In
the United States as a whole deplore
the disposition to drag the question
of compensation to the republic of
Colombia for such losses as It sustain
ed through the separation of Panama
Into partisan politics. The belief or
conviction that Colombia Is Justly en
titled to reparation at tho hands of her
powerful neighbor Is. to say the least, ,
widespread. The fact that Colombia
did not. from tho Washington view
point of the period, exhibit expected
or demanded friendliness In the nego
tiations preliminary to the uprising
of Panama and the establishment In
that province of an Independent re
public. has practically no bearing up
on the equities in the proposed
scheme of settlement. And It cannot
be denied that Colombia has suffered
great loss both in money and national
prestige through acts for which the
Unltod States does not wish to shirk
direct responsibility.
Mr. Bryan holds that the proposed
payment to Colombia of $25,000,000
will only partly compensate her for
the financial loss she hag sustained;
those who disagree with him, while
confessing that something Is due. de
cline to say how much. Colombia Is
prepared to go Into a court of arbi
tration for tho establishment of her
claim. "Our nation," says the Secre
tary of State, "being much the larger
nation and having refused to arbitrate,
takes upon Itself the responsibility of
doing justice to Colombia." And he
adds forcibly: "Not only Is it our duty
to do Justice to Colombia, but In case
of doubt as to what la Just, we must ?
resolve that doubt against ourselves I
and In favor of Colombia." The sum I
Involved Is large. It Is true, but the I
debt It Is Intended to pay Is great. Be- I
cause It Is realized by the government
at Washington as a debt that cannot
be wiped out by money alone, regret ij=
Is offered as part of tho reparation, I
and this has been hotly denounced as |||
a confession of wrong-doing, as an act III
of uncalled-for national humility.
We do not feel that this Is In any
sense a personal or a partlzan matter.
Rather the government at Washing
ton. representative of the people of
the United States, must be regarded
In this matter as far above all person
ality and partisanship. It cannot af
ford to be less than Just, less than |
generous, or less than frank in its I
dealings with Colombia. It does not
humiliate. It dignifies Itself, by refus- J=
Ing to treat a small nation with less
consideration than It would grant a
great one.?Christian Science Monitor.

HOW TO GET A CALIFORNIA HOME
in Palermo
ARE YOU A PRACTICAL BUSINESS MAN with a
yearning at the bottom of your heart to break away some day
from the rush of business?
ARE YOU A PROFESSIONAL MAN anxious to pro
vide, with your surplus earnings, a productive home, to which ?
you can retire when your capacity for hard work declines?
DO YOU WANT TO PROVIDE AGAINST OLD AGE
by acquiring a beautiful country home?
ARE YOU A CAPITALIST, who would like to own a
profitable country home?
ARE YOU TIRED OF WORKING FOR SOMEONE
ELSE and anxious to become independent?
CAN YOU SAVE A SMALL AMOUNT OF MONEY
regularly that you would like to put into a safe investment
which will yield you big returns?
ARE YOU A FAMILY MAN, anxious, on account of ill
health in your family, to move to a healthy climate where you
can pursue a profitable business?
ARE YOU DISGUSTED WITH CANNED LIFE in
the city and do you long to live happily in a peaceful, profi
table country?
DO YOU WANT A COMFORTABLE INCOME acquir
ed honestly?
ARE YOU A MECHANIC, tired of the humdrum life
you live every day?
i\
?
Are you sick of your surroundings but hesitate to move away because of doubt as to your
business prospects? Do you want to leave your family, when you die, MORE than life
insurance?a profitable estate?
The Answer to Every Question Is: GET a CALIFORNIA HOME
California is the Place for You
You can find in the orange and olive lands at Palermo, California, a profitable, healthy
home, at prices absolutely within reach of your pocketbook.
?
Before leaving California for a two weeks' visit in Juneau I had a piece of land that I own at Palermo subdivided into 10 acre tracts and propose to oiler these small farms while I
am in Juneau at wholesale prices, or in other words you can secure 10 acres at the same price per acre you would have to pay tor 1000 acres or more. This section of California is in
what is known as the "proven Orange and Olive belt" where the best Olives and the earliest and best Oranges in the State are grown. Oranges are marketed from this section from
six weeks to two months earlier than the Southern California district, thus bringing the best prices.
Crops are never bothered by frosts as they are in the South. The first Orange tree ever planted in California is in this district and is still bearing fruit, and standing as a monument
to the adaptability of Butte County soil and climate to the growth of Citrus Fruits. You can grow almost anything here and it is easier to tell you what you can not grow than what
you can. Cut out Pineapple, Cocoanuts and Bananas and you will about have the list. The property I am offering is locpted at Palermo, Butte County, and is \\ mile from the West
ern Pacific Railroad, one mile from the Southern Pacific Station and three miles from the Northern Electric, thus affording the best of transportation facilities.
The land is compartively level and is ready for the plow; no rocks, stumps or brush on the land. There is an Olive grove directly across the road from the property that is worth
today $1,000 or more per acre. There is plenty of water for irrigation.
Good school on corner opposite tract. In fact there are so many advantages possessed by this tract and locality that it is impossible to enumerate them here.
As stated above I propose to sell these "Small Farms" at Wholesale Prices and give the purchaser the benefits of all commissions which are usually paid to agents. I own the prop
erty and it is all paid for as the abstract which I have with me will show. Furthermore I want some of my buyers to see the property so that they can tell people just what a bargain
they got, and will give to the first five persons purchasing tracts, a round trip ticket, including berth and meals (by steamer) to San Francisco and return which can be used at any
time within one year. For reference as to my reliability I will refer you to any reputable business man in Juneau, Seattle or San Francisco. This is an exceptional offer and one
that will net you great returns. Buy a tract for your boy or girl and let it lay for five years as an investment. Land not as good as this is today selling in Southern California for from
$500 to $600 per acre. I have only a limited number of tracts for sale. PRICE $100 PER ACRE. TERMS: $35 PER ACRE DOWN,
Balance in three equal payments, with privilege of paying off indebtedness any time before due. Interest 6%. FIVE PERCENT DISCOUNT FOR CASH.
