THE KRAUSE CASE AND THE NEWS
Besides laying the disappearance and pos
sible murder of Christie upon the shoulders of
Krausc. local papers have not hesitated to add
every imaginable form of crime, including
three or four murders, robbery and anarchy.
They have even gone so far as to declare that
an anarchistic siclety existed at Petersburg,
the bright little town at the head of Wrangell
Narrows, of which society Krausc was the mov
ing spirit and head. In fact, these papers have
shown an altogether vindictive spirit in the mat
ter. inspired, perhaps. In one case, by a rooted
hatred for all peoples of Oerman origin, and in
both a play for sensational news. The introduc
tion of so many suspicions, which in most cases,
are not at all well founded and in some in
stances positively foolish, and the positive mat
ter in which they have been declared, has in
flamed the minds of the people on both sides
of the channel until there is even talk of the
lyqnching when the prisoner Is brought North.
If Edward Krause is to be found guilty let him
be punished, but it is surely not the province
of a reputable newspaper to poison the minds ,
of the people of this community against him
that prejudices will usurp the place of Justice.
As far as the Douglas paper's comment refers to
The Empire, it is wrong both as to facts and conclus

day as it has developed. Including the testimony of!

that he was convinced that Krauso had killed Christie.
Moe and Plunkctt.
In commenting upon the Krause news, after saying
that the presumption of innocence would follow the ac
cused to the end. The Empire, a week ago said:
"The public's interest is only that all of the facts
may be presented to impartial men for a decision, and:
there is no cause to believe that this interest will
not be fully satisfied. The machinery' of the law has
been set in motion. Let it operate unhindered by pas- :
sion or prejudice or preconceived opinion."
More than ten days ago The Empire said, under the f
trading. "So Race Question Involved." that "there if
cot a scintilla of evidence thus far that there is any
connection between Krause's or Christie's nationality
and the kidnaping and probable killing of the respected j
Douglas Island citizen." The Empire continued:
"If Krause had guilty connection with the disap
pearance of Christie he did not act because he was a
German, but because he was cither insane or a crim
Further than that. The Empire has no "hatred."
"deep-rooted" or otherwise, for the Gorman people. It
has often paid tribute to the sturdy race of people from
Central Europe that has contributed so much to the
American Nation and its glory. It has every confidence
in the patriotism and Americanism of the German ele
ment of our population. It believes that they arc Amer
icans first. They are progenitors of generations of Ameri
can people. It believes that those "professional Germans,"
who arw seeking to capitalise their blood by abusing the
adminstriation for being for "America first," are doing
a great Injustice to the great majority of a fine ele
ment of Americans in whoso veins run Qerman blood.
Delegate Wickershum apologized for his purpose to
introduce a statehood bill for Alaska by saying that it
would take a long time to get statehood even after an
enabling act were passed. He said there would have
to be a constitutional convention, to bo followed by an
election to approve the constitution and then the ap
proval of the constitution by Congress would bo neces
sary. Very well, then why shouldn't the people of At
aska have self-government while all this Is taking place?
The Delegate could get self-government by asking for
The climate of Seward is now on trial before the
government of the United States and it surely is hold
ing up Its end well. Just at this moment it is proving
itself to be the mildest and the finest in Alaska. On this
day. the third of November. 1915. the sun rose with all
the brightness and warmth that one could hardly expect
in Seattle or Portland. Seward, as far as its climate is
taken Into account, is no more Alaska than Prince Ru
pert is. Already some of the people have have been
drawn hither by the railroad excitement are showing
their disappointment. Having read jail the "best inform
ed works" about Alaska they came expecting to sec men
dressed In parkas and mukluks, while dog teams raced
out Into the blizzards. In their minds' eyes they saw
men walking the streets in snowshoes and sklls, but
October came and wont and they saw less snow thaa
they could see in Montana. This was some disappoint
ment. but when November came and no snow came near
er than the mountain peaks they began to unlearn all
they had ever learned of the Territory. One disgusted
lady declared the other day that Seward Is Just liko
any old town outside. She has discovered for herself
what it is impossible, apparently, to get people outside
to understand. But it is a fact.
A TIP FROM THE BUTCHER
(Marshfleld (Ore.) Record.)
Mrs. Norman E. Gait's butcher says: "Mrs. Gait
can tell the difference between a sirloin and a porter
house steak: between a tender roast and a tough one. Sho
never carries a memorandum book with her and yet
she knows Just exactly what she wants."
Everyone has heard from everywhere praise of the
bride-to-be of the President. But it strikes us that
of all of it we like what the butcher says best.
Young_ men of today who are contemplating matri
mony will do well to heed what the butcher says about
the future first lady of the land.
This page is still old fashioned enough to believe
the wife who is a poor cook and a careless buyer is re
sponsible for a great many of the wrecks on the sea
WARM SPOT FOR WILSON.
There is a strong effort being made to create the
impression that the Republicans will win tho next gen
eral election and Alaskan political plans are being
formed with such an impression as a groundwork. We
are sure to have a Republican candidate for the Con
gressional arce in tho election next year because of
the very blief. groundless or not. that the Republicans
will win the Presidency. Democrats will certainly not
concede* any such thing. They have perfect confidence,
apparently, that the splendid record of Wilson will be
enough to hold him in the chair and every Alaskan, of
any old shape of politics, should have a warm spot in
his heart for the present administration.
When one studies the fundamental conditions of the
country and is guided by those considerations alone one
is strong in tho idea that we are facing a period of
prosperity greater than anything that has been seen in
the past.?(Boston News Bureau.)
FUR SEAL HERD
A census of the seals resorting to
the Prlbllof Islands has been taken
by the resident officials of the United
States Bureau of Fisheries. The first
part was made at the height of the
harem formation in July. From the
preliminary figures that have been re
jceived by wireless messages it ap
pears that the number of harems
on St. Paul Island this season was
17S against 136 In 1914. an Increase
of 35 per cent.: while on St. George
Island the number of harems increas
ed from 243 in 1914 to 362 or 49 per
cent. The number of Idle bulls on St.
Paul Island during the year was 546.
and on St. George island 127. making
a total for both islands of 673, an
increase of 501 over 1914.
The second count made early last
August was addressed to the pups.
The number of pups bora this year
was 88.127 on St Paul Island and
15,389 on St. George Island, a total
of 103,526. The births of this year
exceeded those of last year by 10,276,
or 11 per cent. The number of dead
pups found was 1810 or 1.7 per cent,
indicating no abnormal mortality
among either the pups or their moth
ers. The average number of cows
per harem this year calculated by di
viding the total number of pups born
(equivalent to the number of breed
ing cows) by the total number of har
ems was 46. In 1914 it was 59.8; in
1913 65.8; and in 1912, 60.4.
These figures indicate that the Al
aska seal herd at the end of the
breeding season of 1915 consisted of
; approximately a third of a million ani
mals of both sexes and all ages, an
increase of aboht 40,000 over the last
The killing of seals on the Prlbllof
: Islands was restricted in 1914, through
provisions of existing law, to such
numbers of male seals as were need
ed to supply food for the native In
| habitants. The' secretary of Com
merce fixed upon 3500 as the maxi
mum number which might properly be
killed on St. George Island and 971 on
St. Paul Island. The annual shipment
of fur seal skins, to the number of
2884, was mado in October.
