ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE!
JOHN W. TKOY, Editor and Manager. Published by the EMPIRE PRINTING COMPANY t Kntsrsd as secoud-class matter November 7, 1912 at tbe poet office at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3, 1879.

WHAT effect the war now being waged in Europe will have upon the United States is a matter of more than passing interest, viewed from almost any angle. Of one thing we may be assured. This country will not become em broiled in it. A dignified and a strict neutrality will be main tained. No combination of circumstances can possibly arise I that would make this nation an active participant in the Eu ropean conflict. The first direct result of the declaration of war in Europe, so far as the United States is concerned, has been to. paralyze the stock market. European holders of American stocks are responsible for this condition. In a panic they wished to re alize upon their holdings and the wholesale dumping of stocks demoralized the market to such an extent that the New York Stock Exchange was compelled to close its doors. This does not mean that there is a scarcity of money in America. There is plenty of it, but flooding the country with stocks held in Eu rope necessarily would affect unfavorably American stocks cf all kinds no matter by whom they were held. The demand for our agricultural products by Europe will no doubt be greater than ever before: and this may also be true of our manufactures. With most of Europe's industries paralyzed by what is termed in the dispatches the most terri ble war since the fall of the Roman Empire, America will be called upon to meet the needs of the nations involved in it. Con ditions in the United State* will speedily adjust themselves to meet those of the European countries, and we will profit large ly because of the insensate strife that has been precipitated by the act of a European war lord. The United States could get along exceedingly well without the kind of prosperity that fol lows in the wake of war. Prosperity for us in this war means starvation, desolation and death for the unhappy countries of Europe now embarked upon a titanic struggle the net result of which will be the sacrifice of much human life, the waste of treas ure, and the impoverishment of the combatants. BITING THE HAND THAT WOULD FEED IT. IT may be stated as a postulate that Seattle has benefitted, di rectly and indirectly, by the gold discoveries in Alaska, and the development that has followed, much more than any other city; also that Washington State has been a large bene ficiary. Much Alaska money has been invested, wisely and un wisely, in Seattle buildings and real estate; much money wrung from the goldfields of Alaska and the North has been planted in the soil of the Evergreen State, sometimes with pro fit to the planter, sometimes to his sorrow and grief. Seattle through the force of circumstances?adventitious and otherwise ?has been enabled to command a large share of the trade and gold of Alaska. Alaskans are good customers and usually they pay their bills promptly and pleasantly. And so when business has been active in Alaska and the mines yielding generously of their riches, Seattle has grown and prospered and waxed rich and great When business has declined in Alaska, through a decrease in the mineral output or by reason of the crass and stupid Alaskan policies of the two preceding National adminis trations. Seattle languished; business suffered perceptibly and the boom in real estate diminished with promptness, coupled with disappointment and disaster. In justice to Seattle and her live citizenship let it be admit ted that the importance of Alaska as a valuable "asset" of Seat tle is fully recognized by them. Their withers are wrung when ever the business of Seattle with Alaska decreases; for what ever may be the faults, follies and foibles of Seattle and her people, overlooking a good thing is not one of them. Also let it be admitted that the people of Seattle have exhibited a keen? if somewhat selfish?interest in Alaska's prosperity. On many occasions they have rendered good and efficient service, and they have rendered it ungrudgingly. For which, at all times, thanks. With the coming of the present National administration into power t\ me the initiation of adecidedly new Alaska policy. The do-nothing-bottle-up-the-country-dog-in-the-manger policy of the two preceding administrations has been abandoned, and in its place a constructive, developing policy is assured. The im portance of Alaska as a country abounding in marvelous natural resources has been recognized for the first time by this National government and the first steps have been taken to thrust in the master key and unlock the doors so that these resources may be used legitimately for the benefit of the people, including those of Seattle. And yet the leading newspapers of that cityT and one of its representatives in Corgress miss no opportunity to mis represent and pillory the administration that is attempting to bring grist to the Seattle mill by striking the shackles that have hitherto bound Alaska. It is surely like biting the hand that would feed it. But to what base uses may the pursuit of bittetr political partisanism come! * 1 11 G OLDEST BANK IN ALASKA < The B. M.
