The Empire and Its readers are under obligation to the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company for coming to the relief of the situation resulting from the failure of the United States cable which ceased working Mon day evening. It was after noon yesterday beforo it was realized that there was danger that there would be no communication between Alaska and Seattle. To make matters worse, the White Pass line was out of commis sion. and efforts to get a telegraphic service oven the Canadian line failed. The wireless was then tried, and with the active assistance of the Marconi people it was but a short time before the dispatches began coming How long the Alaska cable will be out of commis sion is not known at this writing. The difficulty the newspapers are encountering this year with the cable Is exasperating. The annoyance to those engaged in business is also a great deal. There is little hope of escape from theso numerous interruptions of the service until a new cable shall have been laid between Alaska and Seattle, and the people of Alaska should make the need for an additional cable plain. The work is too great for a single cable, anyhow, and the periodical interruptions of the service but add to the great need for an additional line between Alas ka and Seattle. PROSPERITY AT HAND That the United States has already entered on an era of business and trade revival ib the admission of the financial papers of the East. The term "admission" is used advisedly, for many of the financial publica tions were reluctant to admit that anything good would come to the country under the Wilson administration. It is admitted also, that a great deal ot this pros perity that now looms large throughout the Industrial centers of the East is due to the new currency and banking law. The fact that the banks of the West for the first time in history are not asking for money with which to "move the crops" is a concrete object lesson of the working of this law. Notwithstanding that the largest crop In point of tonnage and valuation in the history of the country Is already beginning to mave from farm to city, money is being loaned Is being loaned in New York as low as 3V4 per cent, on one year's time, and "call money" is ^represented as begging tak ers at 2 per cent. This is unprecedented for the first of August. The steel industry and other manufacuring indus tries are booming. The mining States are working at a. speed never before witnessed. It is clear that all that is now needed to make busi ness good from the Atlantic to the Pacific is a demand for lumber. The lumber trade is slow in gaining way largely because of the lack of foreign demand. Other countries are not as prosperous as the United States, and they are not buying lumber. Our mills produce more than our own country can consume. However, it is statecd that even with lumber there are signs that the domestic demand will be large during the fall and early winter. There will be some of the Western towns, which are over-populated because the prosperity of former days rested rather upon real estate and promotion spec ulations than upon trade and the employment of labor in the industries, where the recovery will not be as rapid as it has been in the Bast, but it will not be long before labor will be employed there, and the man who produces will be able to market his product at an advantage. It is stated in New York. Chicago and other cen ters that there is not an idle man' who cannot secure work if he desires it and is capable of working. The Boston News Bureau, referring to the situa tion July 24th says: Nothing could be healthier than the money conditions. Year money in New York has ac tually loaned as law as 3*4 per cent, and time money market broadly speaking is on a 3t? per cent, basis. Call money goes begging at 2 per cent. It is obvious that America has the ,-inews of wat with which tc finance a boom of immense scope. The steel business is jumping forward by leaps and bounds in all departments. All of the big stmctural steel plants are working on fnll time, which is a commentary upon the ex tent of the domestic demand. The demand for steel to be used in connection with munition orders from both abroad and home is tremen dous. All of this baying is stimulating the iron market greatly. It is difficult to point to amy big manufac turing or mining industry in the country that is not gathering business momentum with every succeeding day. War orders have long since ceased to be the explanation. The United States has entered upon a new era of revival, which gives not the slightest sign of abate ment. RUSSIA'S BACK DOOR Even German thoroughness in material prepara tion for military eventualities, amazing as it has been, does not seem to have been able to reach what may prove to be a vital factor in the ultimate decision of the titanic struggle now raging in Russia. The factor is what may be termed "Russia's back door." Students of our foreign trade returns had suspect: ed its rapid widening, now related in detail. They had noted that while our exports to European Russia in the ten months ending with last April had fallen to less than J17.000.000 fronf over $26,000,000 in the same per iod in the same months a year earlier, exports to As iatic Russia had jumped from around $1,000;000 to nearly $19,000,000. The "blockades" and "war zones" has changed trade channels rather than acted as trade stoppers. Of course this is not the only country from which Russia is drawing supplies through her back door. While we have heard of cargoes of cotton coming out through the Panama Canal, of the 400 locomotives and 20,000 freight cars due before the end of August from America, we also hear of shiploads of rifles and cart ridges already arrived from Japan and of naval guns from Engalnd for ships building on the Black Sea. We have heard of a great harbor already crowded with shipping and of the swift building of more docks and wharves at which to unload the more and nioro ships that are coming. That truly amazing German thoroughness stopped Russia's front door on the Baltic and has so far barred the sldo door from the Dardanelles. Undoubtedly It took Into account this back door, though not ablo to stop it. And so It may come about that the decision on the plains of Poland will eventually bo mode not jso much on the firing line as on the wharves of Vladivos tok and on tho railway line that connects the battle front with Russia's back' door. The various generals in Mexico all profess to be working for the same beneflclent end, though employ ing different means. Each blames the other for a con tinuance of the troubles. Listens like tho varicolored books of Europe. Carranzlstas have captured Mexico City for the fourth time. While the game Is progressing, there has not been much scoring. It is still anybody's victory. South Africa continues to bear witness to the gen ius of the statesmanship that was bold enough to trust the people that the empire had conquered. The need of funds may enable financiers to do more toward discouraging war than peace advocates have been ablo to accomplish. We trust both Germany and Britain are both con versant with the fact that the only thing cool about Woodrow is his head. A RECRUIT FROM PARTISANSHIP. (Chicago Herald.) Under the heading "Stand by the President" the New York Tribune led its editorial page last Friday with an article of a kind that would have made the old fashioned thlck-and-thin "party" editor foam with wrath or left speechless with indignation. Noting, with some exaggeration, perhaps, the di vision in the Democratic ranks caused by Mr. Bryan's secession?noting also the efforts in certain quarters to numerate and tabulate "the votes Mr. Wilson will lose" because of his thought in international relations is of America and humanity first?the New York Tri bune concludes: In this situation there is just one thing for Republicans to do. The support of a President defending American lives and rights must be complete and unfaltering. ? ? ? It would be better for the Republican party to Indorse Woodrow Wilson in 1916 than to permit the principle to be established that to defend American interests is to commit political sui cide. How's that from the Republican newspaper found ed by. Horace Greeley, and the most conspicuous Repub lican newspaper now printed in the nation's largest cityf Verily, this world does move, and in other sens es than meant by the famous saying of the Italian as tronomer. In The Herald's opinion its New York contempor ary considerably exaggerates the effects of Mr. Bryan's secession. In The Herald's observation the chief ef fect of the numerations and tabulations to which it re fers is to make hard the way of candidates for public office who are entirely loyal Americans but who hap pen to have inherited "German" names. However, the Herald gladly welcomes to the grow ing ranks of independent American journalism this latest recruit from partisanship. WEALTH IN COPPER (Seattle Post-Intelligencer.) With one week's shipments of Alaska copper ore to Puget Sound showing a total value exceeding $1,000, 000, it Is entirely possible that the value of the copper output of the Territory may ultimately exceed the val ue of the annual gold product. Prior to the present war copper touched such a price level as to cause the shutting down of the North ern mines. With the war nations now in the market for large quanties of copper the price has risen to a profitable point, and the mines are working to capac ity. The Northern ore Is shipped to the Tacoma smel ter, which under the influence of the expanding de mand, has been obliged to lncreas its capacity. Ulti mately a smelter may be erected at Cordova, but with the increasing use of the metal there should be ample business for both smelters. With the opening of the coal fields, the stimulant of a large copper production and the usual liberal yield of gold. Alaska is beginning the period of awakening so long looked for by its good friends. BETTER BUSINESS IN SIGHT. (Cordova Times) Times are picking up. There's a rift in the cun mull, and the silver?and copper?lining is appearing. The worst seems to be over. Business men who have been sitting on the fire escape with their fingers cross ed are beginning to move back into the building. Manu facturers are recovering from the dissipations of an en forced vacation. And besides, the good old summer time is here. Capital is poking Its timid poll out of the thicket where it has been hiding since the Lord knows when. The American nation is recovering Its equilibrium, and its ordinary calmness of demeanor and more cor rect perspectlveness in business matters. All along the line comes reports of strengthening in mercantile and industrial lines. More men are finding employment. There are fewer people out of employment at Cordova and throughout the Copper River Valley than for some time past. In fact, the entire Nation is rolling up its sleeves for work. SCHOOL FOR ANCHORAGE (Cook Inlet Pioneer.) The initiatory steps have been taken with respect to the establishment of a public school at Anchorage, and it is now assured that this fall will see the little folk wending their way, books in hand, to the seat of learning. It is very gratifying that this Important mat ter should receive such promp attention. If we are to retain the families, It is our duty to provide schools for the education of their children. Given a first class school here, families now living where there are no school facilities, will, in many cases, removo here. Following in the footsteps of the schools, churches of various denominations should be established; the various lodge orders represented should have social I clubs for the entertainment and comfort of members and some enterprising individual should erect a com modious hall for dancing purposes. Theso things are essential to the moral welfare of a community. All the heroes are not. in Europe. We see by the Boston exchanges that somebody Is trying to start a Senator Wboks boom for the presidency.?(Columbia S. C. State.) The Czar has 100,000 musicians, says an exchange. He should swap them all for a few soldiers.?(Detroit Free Press.) Kitchener is ready to help all those fellows In Eng land who "only want a fighting chance."?(Wall Street Journal.)

So efficient is the German spy sys tem at Washington that - the rosult of tho tests, which convicted a Ger man submarine of having torpedoed the Nebraskan, were in tho hands of the Berlin government before Wash ington officials had read the report of tho experts. Berlin, quick to see the point, at once cabled a note of apology to America. This was made public before the results of the met al test were made known. John Lloyd Balderston, writing re cently from Berne, Switzerland, says in the Sunday Post that Grand Admir al von Tlrpitz plans to break out into the Atlantic ocean with all his first line ships. If the British fleet gives battle a great German army will dis embark on English shores. There aro 1,000 heavy gjins on the Island of Hel igoland, of which 400 are 14-inch or greater calibre, with a 20-mile range. The British casualty list up to July Sshows 3865 officers killed 7662 wound ed and 1115 reported as missing. Among tho overseas contingent tho Indians lost 22 killed, 28 wounded; Australians. 3 killed, 18 wounded, and the Canadians 15 killed 30 wounded. NOTICE OF SETTLEMENT OF AC COUNT.
