OPEN THE COAL.
It is more than probable that the
government could recover the expense
of opening the Matanuska coal fields
before the close of the present war if
it opened them at once. British ships
and others that have been engaged in
the work of hauling coal from various
parts of the earth cannot travel now
so freely. Thousand and thousands
of men in European countries who had
been engaged in digging coal are en
gaged in war. American ships are
free to enter any port la the world and
could make markets for American
coal as they are going to make mark
ets for other American commodities.
The great navies of the powers will
use tremendous quantities of coal and
the price is sure to go very high
should the great war last a few
months, and the chances are that it
will last for years as neither of the
nations engaged can quit without step
ping out of the class of ruling powers.
Before the coming of the winter the
government could have the nation se
cured from lack of coal if it only went
to work. Is it possible to bring this
fact home to the minds of the people
of Washington??Seward Gateway.

GERMANY'S ECONOMIC
, PROGRESS AND WEALTH
Dr. Karl Heltferlch. director of the
Deutsche Bank of Berlin, gives an ex
haustive summary of Germany's econ
omic progress and national wealth In
a pamphlet Issued recently and trans
lated luto English by tho Germanlstc
Solclety of Amortca. He says:
"Our economic development has en
abled us and will contlnuo to enable
us to raise huge sums needed to bring
our defensive forces on land and water
to such a point In numbers and equip
ment us will permit us to confront any
enemy without fear. The political re
generation of Germany and tho re-es
tabllshment of our military power,
which has guaranteed us liberty and
freedom, laid the foundation for the
unfolding of our economic power. And
conversely, the increase of our eco
nomic power supports and strengthens
our political and military position."
Among the facts contained in Dr.
Helfferlch's summary of Germany's
economic condition and wealth Is the
statement that the yearly birth-rate
In Germany Is in excess of the death
rate to the extent of 800,000 souls, end
has been at this rate for many years.
In the territory composing the Ger
man empire there lived In the year
1810 only 26,000,000 people. In 1S71
when the empire was founded the
population had risen to 41,000,000. It
now numbers nearly 70,000,000.
LEMONS GOING UP.
"People will not bo so free with
handing out lemons If the market con
tinues as at present Indicated," said
a leading Juneau merchant today.
Within- the past few days lemons havo
jumped from $6 to $9.50 per cose
wholesale in Seattle. Lemons now re
tail at 45 cents a dozen in Juneau as
against 35 cents about a week ago.

FINDING OF WATCH
POINTS TO SUICIDE
?1_
Discovery of a watch in Ellensburg
which was identified by a brother as
the timepiece which supposedly had
been taken from Aimer J. Anderson
during a scuffle with a highwayman
on University Street Thursday morn
ing, in which Anderson was fatally
wounded, led local police today to de
clare their belief that Anderson in
stead of fighting with a robber had .
committed suicide.
The theory was predicted on the
disclosure that the watch which An
derson said the robber had taken was.
pawned in Ellensburg by Anderson j
himself August 6 for $10, on the day!
Anderson left for Seattle.
Aimer J. Anderson waB formerly a.
mining man of Valdez, Alaska. Early L
Thursday morning he was found in an j ?
alley between Third and Fourth Ave- ]
nues off University Street, seriously ?
wounded. Soveral shots had been !
fired, one at close range to Anderson's \
body. Subsequently Anderson died as .
a result of his wounds. Before his '
death ho told the police that he had
been held up and had drawn his own
pistol to fight oft the robber.?Seattle
