[BUSINESS MEN TO
CONSIDER EXHIBIT
? -
At the next meeting of the Juneau
Commercial club which will be In the
city council chambers next Tuesday
night, the Importance of taking some
definite and united action in the mat
ter of having an adequato exhibit In
the Panama Pacific Exposition at San
Francisco, wflll be fully discussed.
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. Theo
dore Roosevelt today again, ridiculed
the Bryan peace treaties to which he

England speeches. He said the war

futility of trying to establish peaco
through treaties.

ated with the portraits of the royal
generals at the head of armies at the
front. Pictures of the Crown Prince
