Got. J. F. A. Strong has made appeals to the people In general and through their commercial bodies and other or ganizations to cooperate in the mat ter to the end that Alaska may par ticipate, in the great exposition In a creditable manner. He has warned the people that there will be no funds from the Federal appropriation for the collection of an exhibit, nor for Its maintenance beyond a few thousands of dollars, and that if the people do not act on their own account Alaska will not be fairly represented at the exhibition. President H. J. Fisher, of the Com mercial club has been giving consid erable thought to the matter and is In hearty sympathy with the Interest manifested by Gov. Strong in the mat ter. Mr. Fisher would like to see a large attendance at the meeting and would like to hear expressions on the subject as to the best way of accom plishing the desired end. The future development of Juneau's resources it is argued by most mining men will now. and for some time to come, have to depend largely od home capital, on account of the havoc creat ed in financial circles by the great war in Europe. In order to attract home capital it is urged that it will be necessary to make home people acquainted with the resources that are to be developed. The Coat Question. Another important subject that will I probably be touched on is the danger of a coal shortage for Alaska towns in event of the British Columbia coal being shut off through some turn in the fortune of war. This is a burn ing question that is agitating the minds of several coast communities in Alas ka who depend largely on the Brit ish Columbia mines for coal. Nearly every town on the coast has sent letters and petitions urging con gress to hurry coal legislation to the end that Alaska coal may be speedily placed on the market. President Fish er of the Juneau Commercial Club would like to know If the people of Juneau are interested in the question. Gov. Strong has also brought this matter before the commercial organ izations in tho towns of Alaska and has assured the people of Alaska com munities through their commercial bodies that he takes a deep interest in a matter that is of such vital con cern to them. Senator Key Pittman of Nevada, who lived in Nome in the early days and who has proved himself a strong friend of Alaska on all occasions has taken hold of tho matter in earnest and is working hard to have the leas ing bill now pending acted upon and to further such other legislation as may be of benefit to the people re ceive attention.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF WOODROW WILSON The Democratic Congressional com mittee has Issued the following re sume of accomplishments and state ment concerning the policies of Presi dent Woojbow Wilson: I. A firm foreign policy?one of watch ful waiting?which prevented a war with Mexico, and made Impossible un told loss of lives, the demoralization of business, and a staggering war debt. On the other hand the Mexican people have advanced as never before by the ProeWent's fight to restore to them possession of their land. n. A revision of the rules of business without the usual and heretofore In evitable panic. As the result of the efforts of the President the laws have been made the same for everybody? big and little?not by wholesale denun ciation and litigation, but by peace able and JudlclouB means. III. Refutation of the oft-repeated taunts that the Democratic party had not capacity for solving questions requir ing constructive treatment Witness the currency, tariff, Incotno tax, the nearly completed trust bills and other wise legislation that not only received the votes of Democrats, but the votes of Republicans and Bull Moosers as well In both the Senate and House. IV. A tariff that compels the trusts to sell as cheaply to you as to the people of foreign lands. Framed without con cessions to special Interests. V. A currency law under which you got your money when you need It?one that prevents panics and Insures sta ble financial conditions. VI. An income tax that places upon the rich a Just proportion of the $1,000, 000.000 a year, which is now the cost of maintaining the Federal Govern ment. VII. An arbitration act providing for con ciliation and arbitration In controver sies between capital and labor, which has already been successfully employ ed in preventing great strikes that would have tied up the entire railway business of the nation. VIII. Enlargement of the scopo of the par eel post, which has reduced tho cost of transportation, and become a last ing and convenient instrument of bene fit to the consumer and producer. IX. Trust laws based on the Golden Rule ?"The trusts must do unto others as they would have others do unto them," 1. e.. Obey court decrees! Abandon unfair cut-throat competi tion! Cease discriminating between pur chasers of their goods! Disgorge control of competitors ac quired under the "holding company" system. Surrender the enormous power wielded through interlocking dictor ates! (Note?This gives you and your son a better chance in life.) X. Legislation provided for cooperative agricultural extension work. XL The fostering and development of commerce at home and abroad as nev er before. Legislation recently enacted will result in the dispatch of commer cial attaches to all foreign countries in addition to tho location of offices of this branch of the service in the vari ous large cities at home. ' _ - FINALLY. Your President has worked untir ingly and with a sincerity entirely new to our political life for what he considered the best interests of man kind. He has worked unceasingly and without vacation?day in and day out ?for the rank and flle of the public and not for any clique or group. He has worked for peace?peace at home as well as peace abroad. The record made by Woodrow Wil son is without parallel in the entire history of the Nation. ROOSEVELT RIDICULES BRYAN PEACE TREATIES NEW YORK, Aug. 29.?Col.
