PRAISE FOR MESSAGE.
The Boston News Bureau, the Wall Street Jour
nal and other financial newspapers vie with the daily
and weekly papers of the South and West in praise for
President Wilson's message. It Is stated by the Wall
Street Journal that the message was received on the
"Street" with favor, and the Chicago Herald. Independ
ent, says it was received by the people as a new dec
laration of Americanism and adds that it will leave a
lasting impression on the American people.
The Boston News Bureau, which says that the dif
ferences over the message will not be as to its intent
or the principles involved, but will be as to the details
only. It follows this declaration with the statement:
"The more one studies business conditions
the more one is impressed with the improve
ment under way.
"All through the West sentiment Is most
optimistic. Then again, the most gratifying re
ports are those coming from the South. When
we recall the situation in the South a year ago
the contrast is most striking.
"It Is generally believed that 1916 will be a
most prosperous year for business men in all
lines. It is believed further that conditions
will be such as will generate the initiative, and
that we shall see a breadth beyond any dreams
of a year ago."
And it may be added that the new year seemB to
promise to introduce a new wave of Wisconsin popu
larity such as has cn several occasions swept over
the country. The St. Louis Republic predicts that by
the t mo the Presidential campaign is fairly under way.
President Wilson will tower so greatly above everyone
else in the public eye that his election will have been
The death of Senator Francis Marion Cockreli. of
Missouri, removes a man who was a prominent and
highly honorable actor in the theatre of American public
life in his day. He served his state according to bis
conception of his duty faithfully, efficiently and hon
orably In the Confederate army, during the Civil War.
Afterward he became an able lawyer and entered poli
tics. a: did so many of his associates. And his upward
career was one that is familiar In the United States.
He became a member of the State Legislature, a Rep
r< ent&tive in Congress and a United States Senator
being a colleague of the late Senator Vest. In the St.
Louis convention which nominated Alton B. Parker for
President, he received the support of his-state for the
Presidency, and was supported in the balloting by Will
Jam J. Bryan. He retired from the Senate, where he
took prominent place, when his state went Republican In
1904 and elected Senator Warner, a Republican. Ho was
a man of the highest character, and one who served his
President Wilson and four members of hlB cabinet
voted for woman suffrage this year. Tho President and
Secretary of War Garrison voted for the proposed con
stitutional amendment in New Jersey. Secretary of the
Treasury McAdoo and Secretary of Commerce Redfield
voted for votes for women in New York, and Secretary
of Labor Wilson did likewise In Pennsylvania. Secretary
of State Lansing could not get away to New York on
election day, and, as a result, he did not vote at all.
One of the most appreciative Christmas gifts this
year to Juneau will be the addition of several hundred
people to the city through the extension of tho city
limits. And Juneau's return for the gift will bo citizen
ship In tho best city of the West to several hundred J
INTERESTED IN* WIRELESS
The efforts which arc to be made this winter to
widen the field of usefulness of the wireless stations
throughout Interior Alaska will be watched with In
terest by the public. Any move in the direction of
Improved service between Alaska and the States will
bo welcomed. It may not bo possible entirely to elimi
nate the delays Incident to the frequent breaking of the
cable, but if these periods are only partially bridged
by the wireless stations, they will have rendered a
valuable service to Alaska and Alaskans, especially those
residing In the Interior country.
So long as we are compelled to depend entirely upon
the cable, there is little liklihood that messages will
travel with greater certainty than they do at present
The cable Is undependnoic. It is old and worn and rests
on a bed of rocks which constantly threatens interrup
tion. We need an auxiliary cable, but lacking that, we
should have some other means of avoiding costly and
annoying Interruptions which are becoming more fre
quent as the years pass.
AN UNCLOUDED INTELLECT
Field Marshal Von Hindenburg is something more
than a successful soldier. He is a student of Interna
tional affairs and views them in a remarkably unpreju
The Times yesterday published a statement, given
out by the genius of the East Prussian swamps In
which the speaker bluntly declared that peace would
not como immediately through mediation but ultimate
ly as a result of engagements on various fields of bat
Hindenburg knows the Russians are not at the end
of their resources. As va soldier, he realizes that neith
er Britain nor France has been weakened by the Teu
tonic victories of this year. As a level-headed individ
ual. he is aware that nations in such an admirable po
sition as the Allies will not cease fighting while their
foe is at the height of his military success.
It has been stated on the best of authority that Mr.
Wickersham is willing to accept the nomination of the.
regular Republicans next year. This in itself suggests
a most interesting possibility in territorial politics. It
would seem impossible that all old wounds could be
healed up so quckly. It is likely that some Republicans
would be ready to support him If he returned to the
fold, but the official heads could hardly ever in this
world receive him with open arms. It is possible that
the return of Wlckcrshaiu to the Republican party will
result in splitting it in the territory.?Seward Gateway.
ROCK SLIDE VICTIM
After searching for nearly twenty
four hours In the slide rock and debris
at the Alaska Juneau mill site, the
body of J. C. Bynrd was found at 2
o'clock yesterday afternoon a?<J ?
moved from the place of the accident.
The hody was found near the bottom
of the slide and was terribly mangled.
One leg was entirely severed from
the body and the other was hanging
by a few cords, while the head and
shoulders were badly lacerated.
Federal Mining Inspector S. B.
Smith investigated the accident yes-!
terday afternoon. After examing the
slide he declared that indications ;
were that the rock had caved by wa
ter freezing in the fissures, causing
an expansion. The rock at the scene
is very blocky and it requires eternal
vlligance on the part of the compar
and the men. Inspector Smith said,
to avoid accident. The ralll-slte is the
steepest in the world.
R. E. Walker, an undertaker of Bil
lings. Mont., last night at the request
of Byard's friends, undertook to make
Byard's features recognizable. The
body is atC. W. Young's.
