MAKING DEMAND
ON GOVERNMENT!
English People Are Signing
Petition that the
Germans Be Scored
for Execution.
LONDON, Auk. "2.- A petition Is I
now being circulated throughout,
England which will be presented
to the government demanding that
the death of Capt. Charles Fryntt
be avenged. This petition was start
ed two days ago, following the
speech of Prime Minister Asqulth
that when peace was finally con
cluded JJtat the terms be so coti
strurici" that the authorities re- 1
sponsible for the execution of the i
English steamer captain should be;
brought to the bar of Justice. The !
feeling through the British Isles 1
is still Intense against the tier-!
mnn ;inthnrities for the killing of I
Captain Fryatt. It is believed that
at leant a million signatures will
be attached to the government pe
tition.
Germans Claim Treachery.
BERLIN. Aug. 22. (By wireless
to Sayville.)?"German newspapers
discussing British comment in re
gard to the execution of Capt. Char
les Fryatt, of the British steamship
Brussels, declaring unanimously that
the British commentators ure at
tempting to confuse the facts by
pretending that the captain waB sen
tenced to death because he defended
himself against aggression," says
the Overseas News Agency.
"Ab a matter of fact the sentence
was imposed because he undertook
a treacherous surprise attack on a
German submarine in order to gain
the prize offered for the destruction
of a submarine.
"The newspapers insist further
more that the Germans never admit
ted the unlimited right of defense,
and that it Is Irrevelant whether
Great Britain agrees with this stand
point, inasmuch as British legal
views are dependent on considera
tion of expediency and not of jus
tice. For example, the British war
of starvation ugalnst an uuarmed
population of Germany is absolutely
opposed to International law.
"As for the indignation shown by
the British press, the German news
papers refer to the murder o*' men
on a German submarine by the Brit
ish patrol boat Baraloug. to the case
of the British trawler King Stephen,
which refused to save the crew of 1
the wrecked Zeppelin L-l!), and to
the butcheries of the Irish. They
also recall the fact that the heroine
of Loos recently was made the re
cipient of a Britisli decoration for
the cowardly and treacherous mur
tier of five German soldierH."

WICKERSHAM
SCOLDS CITY
! FOR NO HELP
Delegate Says He Has
Had Wo Aid in Fight
to Secure Capitol.
for Juneau.
k
HIS LETTER TO MAYOR
Muyor B. D. Stewart has received
a letter from Delegate Juinea Wick
er sham In which the latter ways the
cupitol building bill will not be
passed by Congress until the short
term of Congress, and scolding the
people of Juneau for not aiding him
to secure the passage of the meas
ure.
Delegate WIckersham's letter, dat
~.i ..a uf??i.u?iAni A iiciiut 0 nnrl
eu in >uiau...bLU.. ...........
addressed to Mayor B. D. Stewart,
follows:
"1 have your letter of July 28th
saying you are authorized by tho
City Council to urge that I put forth
all possible efforts looking toward
the Immediate commencement of
construction on the Government
building at Juneau, without waiting
for further appropriation for the
same.
"There are two reasons why ^lils
can not be done. First, the Demo
cratic caucus has determined not to
pass tho public buildings bill until
December, Nothing 1 nor any one
else can tio will change this situa
tion. Tho authorization for the ex
tra $.'100,000 will not be had until
that time and any effort we might
expend In that behalf would be
wasted for the caucus determination
is fixed ar.:l final. Congress is just
about to determine all the business
which can possibly be consummated
and nothing else will be considered.
To open the gates to one bill would
.be to open them to all and the com
mittee will not permit It.
"The second reason why nothing
can be done at this moment is that
the only authorization we have now
for the Government building at Ju
neau is tho original bill which I got
passed authorizing the expenditure
of $200,000. The new authorization
for the additional $200,000 will not
be passed mini next uecuuiuci. i>?
fore any money can be expended on
the new building the plana and speci
fications must be prepared. If we
should urge upon the architect's of
fice the preparation of plans for a
$200,000 building they would have to
be entirely redrawn when the addi
tional appropriation-?'for $200,000 is
mude next winter. In short, the
architect's office In the Treasury De
partment would not consider the
preparation of plans for a $200,000
building as long p.s Congress has
approved an , authorization for the
additional $300,000. 'Neither would
the architect prepare plans for a
$500,000 building until''the authoriza
tion has pasted through Congress In
Decejnber. If we are satisfied to
take a $200,000 building we could
probably get the plans prepared and
some money spent but If we want
the $500,Odd building we will have to
wait until December when the bill
passes. I assume everybody in Ju
neau would prefer to wait until
December and get the additional au
thorization and have a $500,000 build
ing. Anyway we can get the $500,
000 building now as i|ulck as we
ran get the $200,000 building and
for that reason I can not make any
effort at this time to secure the
action you ask for.
"Permit me to call your attention
to the fact that this application is
about eight months too late any way.
The people of Juneau ought to give
me some assistance in this matter
of u public building. For two or
three years I have not had the
slightest assistance in the matter
but very much in the way of ob
stacles to overcome. I suggest to
you that your people get ready to
assist me In December. If you will
<? anaMnl committee of the
"liamber uf Commerce, City Couu
cll, or any other organization which
muy be interested in the public wel
fare, prepare -to go to work with me
In December we will be able to get
the Juneau public building erected
next summer. If it is neglected for
two or three long years you will
just be out the use of your public1
building two or three years longer."
CIVIL CASE WILL"
BE TRIED IN THE
COURT ON MONDAY
-?
The first civil caso to be tried
during the time before the regular
opening of the court term In Sep
tember, will be the one of the Bos
ton Croup Cold Mining Company vs.
William Britt, John B. Marshall and
others. The complaint was filed af
ter William Britt had started work
on a new residence ou Seventh
Street and recites that the building
will block a roadway from Seventh
Street to the Kbner Basin which be
Ioiiks to the Boston Croup property.
and which has been maintained a.t I
a public road for the past 20 years.
The complainings company asks that
the road be loft open, the defend
ants to remove all structures from
the road, pay the costs of the suit
and $500 damages. The trial will
start next Monday morning.
