CABIN ROBBERS AS
BAD AS MURDERERS
Honesty Is the best policy, and tho
best practice too. for that matter.
Honesty does not mean being straight
because you are afraid of being
caught, but honesty Is really keeping
In the narrow path when you know
that your wickedness would never be
found out. There are some honest men
in Alaska, and there are some who are
only pretty honest Then, too, there
aro some people In this beautiful
Northland who are so desperately
mean that "hangln's too good for
"em." We hnve no desire to be guard
ed In this statement, that tho man
who will deliberately rob an unprotect
ed cabin, and destroy what he docs
not steal. Is worse than a murderer.
All over the North thero are cabins
built by miners, trappers, prospectors,
or hunters, where there is a stove, a
bunk, a small supply of provisions and
usually some dry wood. A man who
Is lost or in distress. Is welcome to |
enter and help himself to the com
forts of the place. This has been the
custom for years, and In time past
these rights were respected by every-1
body. Times have changed, and a
cabin in the wilderness Is no longer
safe. Malicious devils, in the garb of
men. now enter these places, steal
everything they can carry, and de
stroy the rest. One of the first acts
of the Alaska legislature should have
been a law, directed against this form
of depredation, making the penalty so
severe that the fear of discovery would
hold some of the evildoers in check.

SPECIAL SESSION
FOR DELINQUENTS
The city council hold a special ses
sion last night for the purpose of tak
ing action toward the collection of de
linquent personal taxes. The amount
unpaid is not large and the roll of de
linquents was ordered published in
the Alaska Dally Emplro. The tax
must be paid before September 24. All
members of the council were present
I except Geddes.
Discuss Finance.
Chairman J. R. Willis proposed a fl
I nance plan which was adopted. The
plan In brief is to have the citizens ot
Juneau carry warrants that may In
future be issued when there are no
funds with which to pay the same, j
JL ui'UU wurrmua wui uc (wtunvu vv
draw interest at 8 per cent until
called. They ar<j to be Issued in
amounts of not less than $1000 and
only to meet actual current expenses.
The banks. It was asserted, will loan
money up to a certain sum on notes
with responsible endorsers.
The council in addition to taking up
old debts of the city, has paid out ap
proximately $25,000 this year in street
improvements. It requires about $1,
500 per month to run tho city in addi
tion to the expenses of tho public
schools Including teachers' salaries.
The general discussion that followed
developed that the city was in no Im
mediate want, in fact was in pretty
good shape, but it was believed that
precautionary steps should be taken
toward providing for the future. Sev
eral citizens have assured members
of the council that they are willing
to loan the city money on these war
rants that it Is proposed to Issue.
Routine Matters.
A number of bills were audited and
ordered paid.
A proposal from R. \V. Wulzen and
others for the improvement of Soventh
street between Gold and Main streets
was agreed to. The proposition is for
the city and abutting ^property to di
vide the cost.
A petition for the improvement of
Gold street between Fifth and Sixth
was referred. An application for the
appointment of health officers was re
ferred.
The plan of laying In a supply of
coal was discussed.
PLEDGE AGAINST MURDER.
An exchange comes with the follow
ing, which should have been circulated
among tho rulers of Europe, some
years ago: "Brother, hero is my pledge
to you: I refuse to kill your father. 1
refuse to plunge a boynot into the
breast of your sister's brother. I re
fuse to slaughter your sweetheart's
lover. I refuse to murder your wife's
husband. I refuse to butcher your lit
tle child's father. I refuse to wet the
earth with blood and blind kind eyes
with tears. I refuse to assassinate
you and then hide my stained lists
in the folds of any flag." ? Douglas

TIRLEMONT IS TOWN
OF HISTORIC INTEREST
As the German host swings north
ward comes again In line of strifo the
historic spot of Tirlomont where the
deserter Dumourlex made his last
great stand as lender of the French
in 1793 when he put the Austrlans to
rout. Today tho city stands with its
walls dismantled, at the edgo of an ex
tensive forest, two hundred feet
above the river Geete. It has long
been the favorite summer resort of
pleasure-loving Parisians. The Castle
of Tirlomont, now serving as a bar
racks and military prison, was in 1370
the scat of Charles V and among oth
ers of Its Interesting associations may
be listed the facts that It was the
birthplace of Charles IX, of Margaret
of Navarre, of Henry II and Louis
XIV. James II of England and most
of his family lived and died there in
exile.
A STRUCTURE OF
SUBSTANTIAL PLANKS
The Democratic Territorial conven
tion at Skagway had proper apprecia
tion of the great work done for Al
aska by tho present national adminis
tration, and pays n deserved tribute
to the splendid efforts of President
Wilson .and his immediate family. In
addition the platform declares for
many needed reforms in this Terri
tory and for measures that would tend
to the betterment of conditions and
tho development of Alaska. Then too
there Is a declaration for the primary
election law and the Australian ballot.
These are progressive measuros
that must come in time and sentiment
should be so exerted as to bring them
quickly. Tho regulation of the fisher
ies Is another matter that is urged,
also the giving of full Territorial
powers to Alaska. In fact the plat
form is filled with substantial planks
upon which a great country could suc
cessfully be builded and a Democracy
established that would endure for gen
erations.?Cordova Alaskan.
FRANK ALDRICH HEADS
PIONEERS OF ALASKA j
Among those chosen as officers for

of the Pioneers of Alaska were sev
eral local men. Frank Aldrlch, who
has been chosen as the Grand Presi
dent, Is an old time Nomeite who has
spent 21 years ,'n the North. To hold
the position of Grand President it is
necessary that the candidate shall
have held all the important positions
positions in tho local Igloo first and
then all the intermediate positions in
the Grand Ix>dge. Mr. Aldrich who
now heads the Pioneers of this Terri
tory has spent but few weeks on the

ber of the Moose, and was one of tho
