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
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
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
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? *
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

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
Truly the kiss seems to have been
almost the arbiter of Fate.?(Ex.)
