ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE Published by the EMPIRE PRINTING COMPANY JOHN W. TROY, Editor and Manager. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: One year, by mail ? 510.00 Entered as aecond-clasn matter November 7. .1912, at the postofllco at Ju neau, Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1S79. WICKERSHAM PROPOSAL NOT GOOD The provision in Delegate Wickersham's road bill that on and after July 1, 1916. the proceeds from the occupation or li cense tax collected by the Federal government outside of the in corporated towns in Alaska shall be turned into the Territorial treasury, and applied by the Alaska Legislature in certain man ner therein set forth, should be defeated. There is only one ex cuse for the continuation of the Alaska license tax system. That is its encouragement to Congress to appropriate money from the Federal treasury to go with the proceeds from the tax toward aiding in the construction of Alaska roads. If that excuse is to be removed, the whole system should should be abolished. The taxation of the people of Alaska, except insofar as they are taxed under the general revenue producing taws of the whole Nation, is of right a matter that concerns only the people of this Territory. The people of Alaska, through their Legislature, should levy all the taxes that are imposed upon themselves, and provide for the expenditure. If the people of the Territory are not capable of this they are not capable of any manner of self government. The people of Alaska have recognized the iniquity of the Federal license tax law for many years, but as it has been a means toward securing appropriations from the Federal govern ment, for Alaska road purposes they have refrained from attack rag it earnestly. Delegate Wickersham's bill, if passed as it was introduced, would destroy the sole excuse for the system. It should be abolished entrely or it should remain as it it. THE HEIGHT OF ABSURDITY. The campaign that the people of Juneau have inaugurated to secure from Congress the privilege of voting bonds for the erection of a suitable school house in the city is a reminder of the need for a full Territorial form of government here without the irksome restrictions which make government so difficult in the North. If we had the form of government that we should have in Alaska such matters as these could be arranged at home as they were arranged by the people in all other American Ter ritories in their day. It is the height of absurdity when you come to look into it. Here we have a permanent community?one that has been thriv ing more more than a third of a century?and one that is built as solidly as the rock of ages, and needing a school house at a cost of $75,000 for which we are ready to pay. yet we have to go to a Congress, that is so busy with the affairs of the mightiest Na tion in the world that its members could not take a holiday re-| cess, for permission to act. A single citizen of Juneau recently issued bonds, based on the value of a single building and the ground on which it stands, for a greater amount than Juneau asks to bond the entire city for a school building, and he found a ready market for the securities, yet the whole people of the community are denied the right to act without getting the special permission of Congress. It is high time that the people of Alaska had self-govern ment. However, notwithstanding the humiliation, it is up to the people of this city to place the matter before Congress. Juneau must have the school puilding. It is an absolute necessity, and one that is pressing. We should have the building before the beginning of a new school year, and the only way to get it is to go after it in the way that has been proposed. Mrs. Harrison having given her consent, Carter H. Harrison will become a candidate for the Democratic nomination for May or of Chicago again this year. Mr. Harrison has already served five terms as Mayor of his city?an unsurpassed Chicago rec ord, and equalled only by the present Mayor's father, Carter Harrison the First, who also served five terms. Heretofore a Harrison ambition has equalled a nomination for Mayor by the Chicago Democrats, and a nomination has been equivalent to an" Alaskans fought for more than ten years before they got a partial measure of self-government. It took them nearly half that time to win the active support of their own population. They will fight another ten years if that is necessary to get the full measure to which they are entitled. Fortunately they have started with the President of the country on their side. It is announced that 1918 will see the last of the fire-horse in New "lork. So we shall make for speed, noise and economy i at the expense of romance. But while gasoline may "run" with ' the machine," it can never, thank the stars! displace the plump < old plodders of the circus barebeack act. The sawdust ring is ! still safe from the devil-wagon. i 1 Between Lord Kitchener, who guessed that the war might ! last three years, and President Poincare, who thinks it may end j within 1915, there is a considerable difference. The two state ments are alike, however, in being intended quite as much for j the enemy as for the speaker's countrymen. < The North American Indian has been officially declared not i to be a Mongolian, but simply a red Indian of the red race. This : leaves tfib question where the Indians came from just where it i was when the Indians were discovered. Villa is soon to issue a "green book" in justification of his < policy toward Carranza. At this rate the available colors will r soon be exhausted. But will any warring power or ruler consent \ to publish a black book? * c The German Government, according to our Consul General 1 genera], has limited the use of food grains in brewing and dis- j, tilling. So the evidence piles up that this is a sober as well as 15 WHY MAYQFVfi WIFE OPPOSED NOMINATION Recently it war- announced In Chi H. Harrison.

THE ORIGIN OF THE KISS Can anyono point to ono repeated act that has had mo.ro Influence on the destiny of tho hfiman race than. Its origin I? burled so deeply in tho debris of the past that tho spade of analysis would have to dig through several volumes of language to find it logically: but it seems to us that it represented, and still represents, a de sire of two souls for closer union. It matters not what form of soul craves the sympathy involved in the klss-vtho kiss is tho outward expres sion of this craving. Then consider its result ? consider it as a factor. Tho betrayal kiss of Iscariot was tho immediate causo of giving to tho world its finest creed; the kiss of somo al luring woman has changed tho his rory of many a nation?for the crav ing for the closor union may bo eith er a good or an evil craving; vast pol itical schemes have been thwarted by the same method. And the lives that have been chang ed?the women who have staked their ail of this life and tho futuro on that first kiss; and the mon who have found In a kiss tho rock upon which their voyage of life has ended as a wreck. Truly the kiss seems to have been almost the arbiter of Fate.?(Ex.) IT'S DANGEROUS, NO DOUBT (From the Ohio State Jaurnal) Tho trouble with preparedness for war is that as soon as you get it you want to take it out and sco how it works. THE EXPLANATION (Frorr. the Washington Post.) A possible explanation of the mark ed decrease in mountain feuds is that the survivors have moved to Now York. PORTLAND'S WAY (From the Boston Herald.) Portland. Ore., with 300,000 people, has very few automobile accidonts and no joy riding. A rock pile, where all convicted automobllists are set to work, tells tho story. A SAD REMINDER (From the World, New York.) A free soup kitchen for unemployed women and girls is a saddening re minder of woman's equal participation with men in the burden as well as in tho gain of wage earning. WHERE YOU'LL FIND 'EM. (From tho Washington Post.) If you miss your friends from the accustomed route it may be that they are breaking in their new neckties along some lonely side street. DIPLOMATIC DANGER (From tho Now York Herald.) But may not Mr. Bryan's strong en dorsement of prohibition be construed by the kaiser as a distinct breach of neutrality in favor of the czar? . .The biggest drug store In Alaska. The store that has what you want when you want It. The store that gives the service. The Store where you are always welcome.
