Saiwad a* wood-daa.-- natter NovemNrf 7. 1912. at the poatotQco at Ju neau. Al&aka. uadar the Act of March Z. 1S79. GOV. STRONG'S MESSAGE. Gov. Strong's message to the Alaska Legislature is admir able. The recommendations are definite and certain, well consid ered and applicable to the situation in Alaska. The argument in favor of fall Territorial form of govern ment is unanswerable, am: the intimation that we should not waste opportunity to secure more powers for our people by chas ing the phantom of Statehood, at this time, is timely, and to the" point. We can get full Territorial form of government, but there is not the slightest chance in sight for Statehood. One needs but to look back over the history of the long struggles of Terri tories for Statehood and use a little common sense to realize how childish is the talk of asking for admission to the Union for Alaska or any part of it at the present time. There is, further, not an informed man in the Territory who does not realize that Alaska is not prepared yet to bear the expense of a State govern ment. The Governor's recommendations in favor of the Australian ballot, registration, a corrupt practices act and a direct primary could not be better. The time has arrived to nip in the bud vic ious practices in the conduct of elections. The recommendations with reference to taxation are ex cellent. In the whole message?which filled more than five columns of The Empire?there is but one suggestion which we cannot endorse, and we can offer no suggestion of "sins of omission." Wo disagree with the Governor only on the point of an Attor ney-General. We believe that the Legislature should create the office of Attorney-General, and make the official a servant of the Territory and the Territory only. Rut, when one considers the situation that confronts Alaska, this is a small matter. Gov. Strong's first message to an Alaskan Legislature?like with his first and second reports to the Secretary of the .Inter ior?is a state paper that demonstrates the fact that Alaska has a real Alaskan governor, and one worthy of leadership. BREAD WARS. t\c "bread war" is what newspapers have characterized the new phase of the conflict in Europe. The phrase has come into use because of the shifting of interest from the see-sawing: strife between the armies on the battle lines to the war on ocean com merce. But this is not the first "bread war" on a large scale that the world has witnessed. And it would not be the first one to lead to important consequences, should further complica tions arise. Great Britain's war against Napoleon developed into a contest that involved the shipping interests of the world, and it finally resulted in war between the United States and Great Britain?the termination of which marked the beginning of the century of peace between the two great Anglo-Saxon Na tions that has been the subject of much comment and many ' celebrations within the last ten weeks. Great Britain attempted to starve the "Grand Army" into submission during the early days of the last century just as she is now trying to starve the Kaiser's great figting machine. She declared a blockade against France as she has now declared a blockade against Germany. France retaliated, and the seizure of American ships became an international industry, until the United States stopped it. We retaliate on France first, and engaged that country in naval warfare, capturing many of her merchantmen. Peace and understanding with France did not finally come in a satisfactory manner until the close of the ne gotiations which resulted in the Louisiana purchase. The United States attempted to bring Great Britain to time by declaring an embargo on commerce with Europe. While this movement was directed against all of the belligerents it was more harmful to Great Britain than France because France's shipping was at the mercy- of the English anyhow. Britain's war on American commerce continued until the United States adopted a policy of retaili^ion. We attacked British commerce, engaged her -war ships and finally declared war. While the Ghent peace treaty did not refer to the troubles between the United States and England over shipping matters, American shipping had been free from interference by the English navy from that day until the troubles arising out of the "bread war" now in progress in Europe come upon us. That President Wilson will endeavor as earnestly as Jeffer son did to keep his country from engaging in war there is no doubt. It is also far more likely that he will succeed, partly for the reason that the United States has become a great Nation?! the richest and the one,with the greatest potential strength of all Nations?and it is not likely that those~in Europe now en gaged in a life and death struggle would care to court conflict with us. ????? If the present legislators make the best of their "full powers" it will be found that Alaska enjoys about all tiie "full territorial form of government" ..he can get away with for the present, and the additional powers will come as they are needed, along with State hood.?(Dispatch.) When will the Dispatch quit taking foolish powders? The big iceberg reported in the Atlantic by a ship captain just arrived at New York might as well realize that it has lost all chance of holding its old title as the principal terror of the seas. Come to think of it. it is rather strange that Great Britain doesn't justify her use of the American flag on the ground that Americans have in the past made a very practical use of the British lion's taiL The situation in Europe reminds us of the cheerful fact that war,-like luck,, may stay bad for six months and then get worse.

Vice-President dMcJuaflfitoo Ci?Kler "A HOUSE DIVIDED AGAINST ITSELF" (Chicago Herald) American oxport trado, dosplto old difficulties and now ones. Is growing by leaps and bounds. These gains aro gratifying. They ore the result of peace In a war-mad world. They re cover some of tho losses thrust by the war upon a nation bfamclcss for Ub horrors. But what shall it profit the American republic If she gain the trade c; the whole world and lose her own soul?the soul of her un ity In thought and feeling of citi zenship.? That is the dangor of tho situation confronting this nation today. Under tho shadow or that danger It Is time forThe plainest of plain speaking. See ing that danger, he is no American who sits silent. Wo are at peace with the warring nations of Europe and with all Na tions. No feo threatens us, save with intent to gain our aid. Somo Intri gues exist, of cajolery mingled with menace. We can afford to Ignore them so long as we remain united and at peaco among ourselves. But fre are not at peace among our selves^ The bitterness of war-riven Europe aro transplanting to our own soil, and they aro taking root. To the shame be It recorded, the hands of even Americans are busy In this hate breeding task. Appeals aro mado to motives and emotions that should havo died when with uplifted hand alleg iance waa sworn to the United States. Within the last four days at Chica go those who willed have listened to speakers who sowed broadcast tho seeds of blood feud where only bro therhood should grow, who have oven sought to fan tho flames of racial animosity where b!rth entanglements should have withered as mown weeds under the sun of entry' into tho now citizenship. And theso seeds are taking root. Does any thinking inon or wonian imagine that the "patriotic" utteranc es of Miss Parkhurst or of Mr. O'Leary can have any effect on tho war in Europe? Is it not evident to every thinking and real American man and woman that tho effect hero must, so far as they have any effect, bo dan gerous to our domestic peace? It is time to stop and think. Let us road anew what our President, our chosen chief magistrate, said in his appeal to us: Every man who really loves America wilt act and speak in the true spirit of neutrality, tho spirit of impartiality and fairness and friendliness to all concerned.*** It will bo oasy to excite pas sion. and difficult to aiiny it. Those responsible for exciting it assume a heavy responsibility ?responsibility for no less than the peoplb of the United States, whose love of their country should unito them' as Americans, all bound in honor and affection to think first of her, may bo divid ed into camps of hostile opinion, hot against each other. * ? ? I speak a solemn word of warn ing against tho deepest, most subtle, most ossontial breach of neautrality which may spring out of partisanship, out of passionate ly taking sides. * * ? ? ? MY THOUGHT IS OF EM ERICA. This is not Germany. This is not England. This It not Austria, nor France, nor Russia, nor Serbia, nor Belgium, that pitiable Niobe of Na tions. This is AMERICA. Hero wo must all be Americans, not only first but last and all the tlmo?not only in name and word, but in fact and act? if we are to llvo together In peace and unity. There Is no other way. The European war madness has In vaded American business, finance, its commerce and Industry. Because of It some Amorican men walk tlio streets In despair and some American women and children are in want of food. It will take all our wit and will, all our zeal and strength, to remedy these evils at home and to do what we may 1 to bind up tho wounds anl relieve the distresses abroad. Keep the war out of American poli tics, tho Amorican city, the American home. Bar it everlastingly from our American citizenship. This we can ; and this we must. When tempted to do otherwise let us remember the words spoken by Him who spake as never man spake: If a Kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 1 Every kingdom divided against itself shall be brought to desola tion; and ovory city or house di vided against itself shall not stand. CORDOVA'S GOOD FORTUNE IN SECURING BIG RADIO STATION (Cordova Times.) 1 Cordova Is to bo congratulated ap- i on its selection as one of the sites for the construction of a bis' naval radio station. The good news was re ceived yesterday from Washington ' in a telegram sent by our townoman," Geo. C. Hazolet, to the ,'ccal Chamber of Commerce, of which organization he is the president and accroditod representative at the national capi tal This means moro to tho town than possibly appears on tho surface, and If Mr. Hnzelot Is In any way re sponsible for having brought It about ho is entitled to a full measure of credit z Even Blnce last summer It has been known that tho Navy Department con torn plated tho building of sir of tho largest aerial stations In existence, five of said plants to bo located at strategic points in the States and ono In Alaska, to form a part of a naval oyntem In tho event of war. Commander Taylor, of tho cruiser Buffalo, wan delegated to make an In vestigation of conditions along Prince William Sound-and to recommend the most suitable site. This he did and the honor foil to Cordova. The now plant, which It Is said will bo about ten times as large nnd pow erful an the present navy station at Whltoshed, Is to be located at Mile 13, along the Copper River & North western railway. Tho selection of this slto is believed by many to be significant, in relation to government railroad construction In Alaska We aro Informed by Mr. Hazolet that the work on the aerial plant will begin in June. This means that one of the cruisers will be in our harbor most of tho coming season, and thus Cor dova is to dorlvc a great and Immed iate benefit, as was evidenced by tho short stay of the Buffalo In the lo cal port last year.^ ? ; * POIMTED PARAGRAPHS * * Some men think that they are over worked when they spend their em ployers' time talking about It.?(Pltts burgfih Sun.) There are some men complaining about the luck of men who wouldn't give a hand to honest labor If a Job were to knock thom down and chaso them Bcven blocks down Main street. ?(Houston Post.) Many a man Is a failure as the ar chitect of his own fortune because ho restricted himself to the building of ^air castles.?(Atlanta Journal.) The most Impotent woman Is the one who rushes up to the pay-enter car after the door has been closed and the signal to go ahead has been given. She cannot even express her emotions.?(Toledo Blade.) To knock requires no superior tal ent?(New York Y?*orld.) The man who knocks his tow nhas a family that Is in need of the sym pathy of others.?(New York World.) It Is easier to pose as a prophet than it is to stand from under when your predictions go tamo.?(New York World.) Measure, weigh and Inspect your self and toss the rust, dust and junk that you find into the mlllpond. and throw back your shoulders and step off as if you are bound to g6t some where.?(Milwaukee Sentinel.) EAST CATCHING UP (New . York World) Both New Jersey and Massachu setts, through tholr Legislatures, have decided to vote next fall on constitu tional amendments granting women the suffrage. Now York Is already in line and Rhode Island is propating to fall Into step. The East, so long despised west ot tho Missouri as un progrossivo, seems to bo engaged in a conspiracy to disprove the charge, at least to the extent of testing by popu lar vote which course separate States shall pursue. NO BRITISH PROTEST (Washington Post.) Count Zeppelin's desire to fly to theso shores will not be interferred with by any fierce protests from Lon don. THE MOOSE (Bridgeport Telegram) Col. Roosevelt urges a law to save the moose from extinction. But we are not clear as to whether he moans tho animals of the votes. WOULD DEMAND DELIVERY .
