WORK FOR JUNEAU1TES
The suggestion for the formation of a civic club to
be composed of Juneau business men and taxpayers to
work In connection with the City Council and other civic
organizations for the progressive advancement of Ju
neau's best interest is timely. It possesses the quality
of common sense and sound business judgment. There
Is not a legitimate business in Juneau that does not
depend for full measure of success as much upon com
munity development as It does upon Individual effort.
The further suggestion, that au adequate supply of
pure water Is one of the matters that such an organiza
tion could aid the City Council in securing for the city.
Is sanely sensible. If the men who are used to doing
big things take proper. interest In this and other mat
ters, they can materially aid the municipal government
In many ways. They can assist it In getting good bar
gains for the city, and in securing the advice and using
the knowledge of more men who know.
As further suggested, there are many other things
that such an organization could do in backing up and
working with the City government, the Commercial
Club?and other organizations that would work for the
The development of Juneau and Gasticeau channel
to the fullest extent warranted by the conditions that
surround us is a matter that concerns every business
man. property owner and resident on the channel. Ev
ery business man should consider community develop
ment as one of the important branches of his individual
business. It is an important branch of It, and the one
that promises the greatest returns for the time and ef
fort devoted to it. There is absolutely nothing that
counts so much for individual profit and progress as
united, co-operative community action for the common
Much has been said in Alaska about the "Seattle
spirit." The real "Seattle spirit" means simply that
Seattle business men risked everything upon the growth
and development of their city. That is what we need
here. Let every Gastineau channel man risk every
thing that he has and hopes to have upon the growth
and development of the community. The resources,
strategical position and trend of the times arc all In
conspiracy to make a great city here. There is none on
the channel who cannot make more by developing the
city than he can in any other way. The marvels wrought
by the "Seattle spirit" are the proofs. Let us develop
a "Gastineau channel spirit." Let us make Juneau as
big as we can. and the finest city of her size in the
West We can do it
OUR SPURIOUS VOTERS
In support of his contention that the United States
should have universal military training. Col. Roosevelt
says that "the citizen who does not fit himself to fight
for the country is not entitled to vote In deciding that
By this the Colonel means that only those who
serve time In the army should be permitted to vote.
Too bad. isn't it. that we did not discover this be
fore? Here is the United States, nearly 140 years of
age. grown from thirteen struggling colonies of 3.000,
000 people to 48 States and three Territories of more
than 100.000.000 Inhabitants and she has been governed
mostly throughout all that time by people who were not
of right entitled to vote! We have even had Presi
dents?Jefferson, the Adamses. Madison, Monroe, Van
Buren, Tyler, Polk, Buchanan, Johnson, Arthur, Cleve
land, Taft and Wilson?who never had military training,
and, of courso, wcro not rightly quallfiod to voto. let
alone beinr fit to guard the destinies of a Nation! All
of our Chief Justices?Marshall, Taney, Chase, Puller,
White and the others?should never have been permit

cy, and Black, and Seward, and Washburn, and Evarts,
and Blaine, and Bayard, and Root, and Lansing and
Then think of Alaska! Our Delegate, disqualified

FEAR IS OF SPECULATION
The Boston News Bureau, commenting on the sit
uation that will be presented to the American people
with the coming of the New Year, says;
"Statistics that will be presented with the
new year cannot fail to create enthusiasm.
This will finally be reflected in the security
markets. The danger Is that the buying dis
position cannot bo controlled."
It Is certainly a happy situation when, after eight
years of a downward tendency in business and finance,
that it Is feared thdt the people will discover that times
are so good that they will be unable to control their
The question of a full form of Territorial govern
ment Is one that Involves both business and American
principles. The lack of local authority in Alaska Is
retarding the development of the Torrltory, and Ameri
can principles demand self-government for tho Territory.
Those who are opposing full Territorial form of gov
ernment are holding back Alaskan progress and devel
opment, and they are opposing the best American sen
There is ono great, fundamental difference between
President Wilson and former President Roosevelt on
the question of National preparedness. President Wil
son plans a strictly volunteer army Including reserves.
Roosevelt favors compulsory universal service. The
difference is that between a democracy and militaristic
imperialism. Tho other former President, Mr. Taft, sup
ports the position of President Wilson, of course.
The Petersburg Report complains because the "Ju
neau papers" discovered "an anarchistic society with
headquarters at Petersburg of which Krause was the
head." Don't say "papers." The Empire's only refer
ence to the story was to deny it. Nor did Tho Empire
contain the story of the English battleship searching
for reservists, nor the devil club story..
"There's a reason" for The Colonel's desire for the
United States to enter the war in Europe. It is fur
nished by the interview given Sydney Brooks, New York
correspondent of the London Timoa and London Mail.
The Colonel wanted to lead 12,000 "Rough Riders" into
One of the first and most Important steps in the
movement for co-operation in community development
on Gastincau channel will be the extension of the muni
cipal limits of Juneau at the election December 20. Let
us all get in step in the march of progress.
Altogether, this situation presents lots of oppor
tunities for troublo. as long as there are countries that
are willing to cause trouble in order to satiate desire
for expansion and profits.
The duty not only devolves upon tho United States
*;o be prepared to be her own defendor, but she must
be prepared to be a big brother for Latin America.
The Administration policy aims as far from a career
of militarism as it does from ono of vandalism.

TWO SMALL FIRES
At 6:30 last night the Are depart
ment was called out by a chimney
blaze in Thomns Hanson's cabin on
5th an<l Gold streets. The blazo was
extinguished in a few moments and
before any damage was done.
At almost exactly the same time
this morning the department was call
ed again, this time to put out a brush
flro which had started on the hill
side back of the Alexander apart
ments and which had probably been
started by a match or clgarct thrown
into tho grass by someone coming
down the troll from the Alaska-Juneau
mine. Although a considcarble area
of brush was consumed, no serious
damage was done.
Chief Sim Frelman of tho fire de
partment urges that unusual precau
tion be taken against flreB at the pres
ent time, and states that there is spe
cial danger now on account of the
wind and the fact that tho whole city
is as dry as tinder. Two fire wardens
were on duty lost night and will pa
trol the residence section as long as
the high wind lasts.
There will be no more lessonB given
at Turner Dancing Academy until af
