ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE!
PUBLISHED BY THE EMPIRE PRINTING COMPANY ? JOHN W. TROY, Editor and Manager SUBSCRIPTION RATES: One year, by mall. In advance 110.00 Six months, by mall. In advance. 6.00 ( Per month, delivered 1.00 Entered as sccond-class matter November 7. 1912/ at the postotflce at Jnnean. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1879. THE ELECTIONS While comment on^Tuesday's elections In the eight States that voted Is premature li^he absence of more Information as to the number of votes cast and the ex tent to which local issues were involved, nothing ap pears thus far that should be discouraging to the ad ministration. The Republicans gained the Governor in Massachusetts?a State which they carried last year for everything except the Governorship?and the Demo crats gained the Governor in Maryland? a State that was within their control in everything except the Gov ernorship. Kentucky and Mississippi remain Demo cratic. as last year, and New York. New Jersey and Pennsylvania remain Republican as they were last year. In Ohio. Cincinnati went Republican as she did at the last election, and the State again defeated prohibition. However, the defeat of woman suffrage la the three States which voted upon that question and the tremen dous defeat of the "Root constitution" In New York In dicate that there is a reactionary tendency on the part of the voters in the East which might. If persisted in, work to the advantage of the Republican party. Tam many's victory In New York City is a further indication that many people have become tired of trying to reform their government. Yet. the opposition to the adminis tration has carried nothing that it failed to carry last *L ? ?-J ???1 f Inn va*r\l> year, and last year tne party 01 me ?uiuiui?.i.v.wU the House of Representaatlves and made a net gain of three Senators. There la one thing that must not be overlooked In these off year elections, and that is that the party in power must stand on a record that la Nation-wide while the "outs" can attack the "ins" in each State at their weakest point in that State and attack with the strong est issues that they might have in the State. In the National contest, the "outs." like the "ins." must line up on a Nation-wide platform with a Nation-wide can didate. This year and last every element of the op position naturally was In opposition, each element hope ful that the Nation-wide line up next year may be on lines that will be satisfactory to it. This Is a situation that often worked to the advantage of the Democratic party when it was out of power. It frequently carried States in the off-year elections only to lose them in the following Presidential election. However, while the result of the elections this year, like those of last year, clearly indicate that there will be no walk-over in tbe 1916 contest, and that the cam paign will be fought with vigor throughout the Nation, it must be borne in mind that before next year's vot ing there will be immediately behind tbe voters a period of more than a year of good times,- while in* the contest this week the wave of prosperity had not been moving sufficiently long to reach all classes. In spite or those majorities on the Atlantic sea board. the West still has woman suffrage, and she is very well satisfied with it. -??? DELEGATE MISREPRESENTS Again has the record carried the fact of misrepre sentation to Delegate Wickersham. Late last year the Delegate in letters to the Juneau and Fairbanks Com mercial Clubs charged that Col. Richardson had lied when he said that he had endeavored to secure larger appropriations for expenditure on Alaska roads. Col. Richardson asked the War Department for the records, and their production proved that the Delegate and not the Colonel was guilty of misrepresentation. Col. Richardson bad asked for larger appropriations and had prepared a statement showing their necessity. The fact of the whole matter is Delegate Wicker sham has never done any real service in connection with securing money for Alaska roads. It was discovered that he hod not, and he Introduced his monstrous bill of last year and said, in effect, "see what I have done!" Not content with that, probably realising that it would be recognized as a belated effort to whitewash his own record, he charged that Col. Richardson had got all the money for roads that he had ever asked for. Tho record shows that the Delegate wrote too much. ROUMANIA AND GREECE While the details of the continued success of the Austro-German invasion of Serbia and the Italian of fensive movement against Austria are ai> very interest ing. the big war news thus far of the present week is the almost certainty that Roumonla has df-clded to join the Allies?that and the announcement that Germany has decided to establish a blockade of Greek ports. Of course, the announcement that the remaining neutral Balkan powers Insists that the Gorman invasion of Ser bia must be checked before she enters tho conflict, and the Intimation by Greece that she must no assured mai Great Britain. Prance and Italy must assure her that they will send enough troops into the southeast to pro tect her again Invasion, make the price that is de manded a high one, yet that is what the Allies will have to do anyhow, unloss they determine to abandon their effort to open the Dardanelles and their war on Tur key. While the events of the past have put many a pro phet to shame, there seems to be every indication that before many days we may expect to see Roumania and Greece in the war. When it was flashed over the world last July that the trade balance in favor of the United States for the fiscal year just ended bad been more than $1,000,000, 000, everybody caught his breath. Yet if we should date our fiscul year - from the first of -November in stead of the first of July, our balance for the year end in October 31st would be $1,700,000,000; In other words, the first four months of the present fiscal year show a gain over the first four months of the last of $700,000,000. If the next eight months should maln [ tain the gain over last year, the trade balance will be $3,100,000,000 for the present fiscal year. Some of those diplomats of the Allies huve evi dently road American history, and been impressed with , that remark about hanging together or having to hang separately. Prance and the United States have tblked over a number of things quite amicably in the past, but the other day was the first time they ever talked over the - so*. I PREPAREDNESS] is a question of deeper significance than mere national militarism. It presents a vital personal issue, one that comes right home to you. If you have not given the matter any thought, it is your duty to do so now. Should Immediately be Prepared Against Fire! This is a duty you owe not only to yourself, but to your family as well, a duty paramount to all other considerations, because there is nqver a night when your lit* H tie ones are tucked into their beds that you have any assurance the house will not take fire before morning. ? Insurance Will Not Protect Against This Danger ;t and no amount of insurance money collected after their lives have been snifTed out, k* in this horrible manner, can return them to your arms. When the emergency of extin guishing an incipient fire in vour home aris ;s, the only protection that protects is i=l PYRENE ^=1 It is a fluid contained in an extinguisher so small that it may be operated by a child. It weighs only six pounds, filled ready for use. It is so cheap that its cost becomes neg Iligible when compared to its great value in times of emergency. There are two kinds of extinguishers: 57.00 BRASS EXTINGUISHER ft 7.00 58.00 Nickel Plated Extinguisher 58.00 j The home use of PYRENE outweighs the business use to just that extent which a human life is more important than mere dollars. Any fire in its early stages can be easily and quickly extinguished with this simple little invention. Some idea of the ex tinguishing power of PYRENE may be drawn from the fact that it has Extinguished An Electric Arc of 600 volts at 1200 amperes in 3 seconds, an electric arc of 220 volts at 2000 amperes in 2 seconds, and an electric arc of 500 volts at 500 amperes with one application of PYRENE. For the Extinguishment of tiasolene Jires it has no equal. By equipping your home, your place of business, your shop, your fj mill, your launch or your boat with this simple little device, you will thereby effect great er security of human life, and protect your property against destruction.

Some people waste a lot of time tell ing other people not to waste theirs. Many are called. But tew get up until they are good and ready. The trouble with being easy-going and good-natured, is that other peo ple want to use you for a door mat. Cheer up. If there were no bills on tho road the Journey would be mighty monotonous. A stingy man sure likes to work the word economy to death. Oh. well, things might be worse. The Republicans so far have not ac cused the Democrats of starting the war in Europe. There aro a whole lot of us who are covered with callouses from not having enough money who would like to take a chance on the troubles sup posed to come from having too much | money. No Fun Fon Him "1 never see that monkey skylark ing," remarked a man who understood monkey language. "I never see him swinging by the tall or having fun of j sort." "Oh, that monk has accumulated 3,000,000 cocoanuts," explained an old chimpanzee. "Ho lias to spend all his time watching 'em. He can't have any i fun."?(Louisville Courier-Journal) No Joke "It is often quite hard," remarked old Mr. Wall, "To think of the things we would like to recall.; But it is no trouble at all, you can bet. To think of the things we would like to forget." ?(Cincinnati Enquirer.) ? OCCIDENTAL HOTEL AND ANNEX Rates?75c to $2.60 Per Day Weekly Rates on Request Phone 11 ?i.. ?
