PRAISE FOR THE
DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM
As everyone expected the Democrat
ic convention at Skagway came out
again for the appointment of Alaskans
to Alaskan positions.
This policy is one that should be sup
ported by people of all parties in the
territory. Even honest pride ought
to be enough to make us resent the
idea of sending men here to admin
ister our affairs. We have people in
Alaska who are perfectly capable of
tilling all the positions and in spite
of the fact that the present administra
tion has performed great services for
the Territory It is felt as a sort of
personal slight to get turned down for
outsiders.
It hardly seems likely that a law
yer appointed from outside to the Alas
ka bench could know as much about
the conditions as a lawyer who has
lived several years here and knows all
about the various workings of the min
ing laws and others.
Some of the appointees from the out
ride have actually brought in tftelr as
sistants and it must be mighty hard on
men who have given their best years
to the Territory to be compelled to
continue to take chances while strang
ers grab the snaps.?Seward Gateway.

WAR HARMLESS
TO ALASKA
General Manager B. L. Thane, of
the Alaska Gastilneau Mining com
pany, thinks that there 1b nothing in
the conditions created by the European
war that should cause concern among
Alaskans. Material conditions here
he thinks are sound, . even though
there may be a slacking up in develop
ment temporarily. "So far as the Al
aska Ga8tlncau Mining company is
concerned," he said, "the work will
continue just as outlined and the mills
will be flnlBhed on time. There will
be no cessation of the work at Ken
sington either. Everything will move
along Just as planned."
While the European war has caused
a big drop in the prices of copper the
markets of that contlnont being closed
and a resutllng reduction in the copper
production of the United States, Mr.
Thane does not think that Alaska will
materially suffer by It to any great
extent. All told perhaps 20,000 miners
engaged in the production of copper
have been temporarily laid ofT, but
all of the Jackling mines will con
tinue to operato on reduced schedules
until normal conditions return.
Alaska, northern British Columbia
and Yukon Territory are becoming
factors in copper production. The
Sulzer properties, and other mines in
the Ketchikan district have been ship
ping and are preparing to ship. The
Guggenheim mines in the Copper Riv
er district and those at Whltehorse
and Portland canal districts of Cana
da have been steady producers. Many
people have begun to think about the
effect that the European war may
have on these properties and the In
dustrial centers they have creatod.
President 0. L. Ulckeson, of the
White Pass, Is quoted by Senator J.
M. Tanner, of Skagway, as saying
that he Is trying to make arrange
ments that will permit the Whltehorse
mines to continue shipping until fall
at least
CAPE COD'S CANAL
BEiNG OVERLOOKED
While the world has watched with
intcsnse Interest the great work of
cutting the Panama Canal across the
Isthmus, comparatively little has been
said about the Cape Cod Canal, which
will be officially opened tomorrow. Yet
the canal across the Cape Cod penin
sula may even compare with the great
canal at Panama In point of traffic.
It Is estimated, for Instance, that the
Panama Canal will have, at least in
Its Initial stages, only a tonnage of
10,600,000; that of Suez In 1912 was
20,275,000 net tons, while the freight
annually passing around Cape Cod,
and practically all of which may be ex
pected to use the canal, Is more than
twice the estimate for Panama, and Is
even greater than that at Suez.
That there will be a strong Induce
ment to have all frplght now shipped
around Cape Cod sent through the ca
nal is readily seen when it is stated
that more than 2,000 ships and between
600 and 700 lives have been lost In the
stormy passages around the Cape. By
means of the canal this long and dan
gerous passage round Cape Cod will
be transferred to a short and safe one
of the few miles lying between Buz
zard's Bay and Cape Cod Bay, an im
mense saving in tlmo and distance,
with a complete elimination of the
perils which for more than 200 years
have been the dread of sailors.
Why an enterprise of such obvious
utility and humanity has waited so
long for accomplishment can only be
explained by the force of custom. Had
the United States government been
farslghted, the Cape Cod Canal would
long ago have been dug as a part of a
coastal system whoso importance In
coast defense and protection has been
recognized but lost as an urgent issue
by our Immunity of a hundred years
from invasion.?New York World.

T. J. PATTERSON
Almost recovered from Injuries ho
received In the Grand Tr\y>k dock flro
when he escaped by dropping from a
second story window, T. J. Patterson
of the Alaska Barge company was ablo
to bo about yesterday for tho first
time since tho conflugaratlon. Ho wnB
confined to bed In his apartments In
tho hotel Frye for eight days.
When he dropped from the window
he landed with such force on tho dock
that he was unconscious for nearly an
hour. He was discovered lying In the
smoko and flame by T. E. Geary, the
naval architect. He Is still suffering
to some extent from bruises.
Mr. Patterson Is one of the best-Ilk

RUBY CAMP TO BE
BEST OF INTERIOR
That tho Kuby district will become
tho best mining district of tho Inter
ior of Alaska is the firm conviction of
George Anderson, tho Juneau musi
cian, who returned on the Jefferson
from a successful business trip to the
Interior.
"The reports from Long creek," said
Mr. Anderson, "have been particular
ly favorable this year, and other
creeks in its neighborhood are re
sponding handsomely to tho work
there this year."
Mr. Anderson visited Fairbanks, Cir
cle, Fortymlle, Dawson, Whltehorse
and Lynn canal cities during hi i ab
sence from Juneau.
WASHINGTON STILL
HAS FUN WITH BO
??? *t
Stepping right Into the front rank
of an administration in Washington
that is adorned with such given names
as Woodrow and Josephus, and Frank
lin, and Lindley, and?we had almost
forgotten?Cato, it is no wonder that
the new assistant Secretary of the In
terior gave newspaper men and others
who have their abiding places in ho
tel lobbies a shock when he inscribed
on the register "Bo Sweeney, Wash
ington," meaning the State. Timid in
quiries as t,o whether the new arrival's
name unabbreviated was Beau, Boaz
or Bonaparte, and diplomatic insinua
tions that something ought to be add
ed to Bo to make the name fit a place
so near the cabinet, brought the em
phatic explanation from its owner that
he had written it Bo and ft was going
to stay Bo, because it is the name giv
en him by his parents and his god
fathers and his godmothers. A per
fectly valid reason, and, therefore,
Washington greets Hon. Bo Sweeney,
assistant Secretary of the Interior.
Welcome, thrice welcome, Bo. The
name becomes an American classic.
May it not, possibly, grace the cabinet
Itself before the government cbanges;
and after that?well, who knows? ?

CONSTRUCTION OF ROAD
LOOKS LONG WAY OFF
Hon. Thomas Taylor, minister of
public works for British Columbia,
who went into Dawson the first of the
month with the crowd of Mystic
Shriners, came out last night and took
the Princess Alice for home in com
pany with the remainder of the
party.
While in Dawson, in speaking of
the development of the northern coun
try, he incidentally mentioned to a
Dawson News man the proposed high
way from Skagway to the interior ov
er White Pass, through northern Brit
ish Columbia, and to connect with' the
present government road at White
horse. The News says:
"Referring to the proposed highway
from Skagway through White Pass
and a strip of British Columbia to the
interior, Mr. Taylor says he is look
ing over the route in a general way
when passing through on the train,
but has no definite plans as to Brit
ish Columbia participation."?Skagway
