ANCHORAGE MAY
CHANGE ITS NAME
While at the new town of Anchor
age recently Gov. J. F. A. Strong said
that he would like for the people of
that city to change the name of their
growing little city to something that
would have a broader meaning than
"Anchorage." The suggestion has
caused a great deal of comment, and
all classes of people arc becoming
Interested in a new name for the new
est city in Alaska.
Among the names that have been
suggested are "Matanuskn," "Alaska
City," "Terminal." "Woodrow," and
"Wilson City."
Mears Suggests Matanuska.
In a letter to the Cook Inlet Pio
neer, Lieut. Frederick Mears of the
railroad engineering commission,
suggested "Matanuska." saying that
the town that will be established at
the coal fields could then be called
"Chlckaloon."
The letter follows:
"Following the expressed wish of
the Governor that a new name be giv
en to the town of Anchorage. 'Matan
uska' is suggested as being appropri
ate because of the geographical po
sltion of tho town in relation to the
coal flclds.
"This will doubtless be the ship
ping point for Matanuska coal and
Is a name well known throughout the
United States, identifying this sec
tion of Alaska.
"The town in the coal fields could
be called 'Chlckaloon' and the Junc
tion could be designated 'Chlckaloon
Junction.'
"If this name meets with the ap
proval of the residents, 1 would be1
pleased to suggest it to the proper
authorities.
"The Cook Inlet Pioneer has kindly
consented to receive votes on this
name and publish the result in next
week's Issue."
PROPOSAL TO
STANDARDIZE
U. S. DOLLAR
?+?
President Wilson wishes to Interna
tionalize the United States dollar. Ad
mirable!
The dollar ought to be the coin in
which all Americans think from Pat
agonia to the North Poral sea. There
?
are many different dollars and have j
been since the first ono was made:
five centuries ago in Germany, but [
ours is the best dollar that is or was.
Washington. Irving labelled it "the
Almighty dollar, that great object of!
universal devotion throughout our
land." In the Spanish-American
countries the invariably refer to the
dollar of our republic as n "dollar
gold," while thoir is a "dollar Mex,"
the Mex being short for Mexican,
worth two Mexican dollars. They use
dollars in China and down in the
Malay Peninsula. There is a Dutch
dollar in the various islands belong
ing to Holland.
Germany's standard of value was
also a dollar until after the Franco
Prussian war. wh;n mark was put
upon the throne.
The first dollar was made from sil
ver mined in Bohemia, end it was
called a "Joachim's thaler."
It bore an efllgy of St. Joachim.
Tlmt thaler has had many differ
ent dresses such as daier, dclar, Da
older, tolero, before budding forth
into the English language as dollar.
Our American dollar was born the
year the Constitution of the United
States was made in Independence
:iquoro. Gouvcrneur Morris was the
daddy of our dollars and cents.
Up until that time the American
Colonies and states had used the
. English pounds, shillings, pence and
i farthings. Down in the Spanish landB
they had what all our best story writ
ers never full to mention as pieces of
eight They were very often called
dollars by those who used them.
But the United States dollar has
stability as well as history behind
it. It is what Frederick T. Chandler
would call "very pretty money."
It would be a great advance to
ward that dreamed-of Pan-America
were this gold dollar to become the
1 monetary unit for the whole Western
Hemisphere.
My broker friend, William Sher
| rerd, who is just home from Californ
ia via the northern border of Mexico,
had an illustration of what cheap
I money means. Ho bought a five-dol
lar note issued by Carranza for a
quarter.?Philadelphia Lodger.
