BUY AT HOME One of the essential things In the development of a country is the patronage of hone industries and institutions wherever that is possible. And nearly all of the time that would be not only possible but profitable on Gastineau channel. Such manufacturing institutions as we have In this section give value for their money, and our stores are up-to-date and reasonable in their prices. However, if every one would make it a practice to purchase all that he has to buy at local houses, we would have better and larger manufacturing in stitutions and larger and better stores. If the money that is sent out of Juneau to mail order houses and to outside manufacturing concerns were spent at home, it would have a wonderful effect on trade here. The merchats and others would carry larger stocks of goods, give employment to more men and create a greater volume of business all round. Xnd the local dealers are entitled to this sort of treatment. They have payrolls that help to give us population. They pay taxes that help to run our municipalities, give us streets and the other municipal institutions. They help to support our schools, our churches, fraternal societies, to care for our needy and everything that makes the communities worth living in. Give them the support they are entitled to?and that is every possible dollar's worth?and they will be able to give us even better service than they are now giving. Let every man buy what he can on Gastineau channel, and the result will be improved Gastineau channel communities. THE PRESIDENT AND WICK'S FISH Wlckersham says the President has taken no ac tion on Alaska fisheries questions notwithstanding that "I?ME,?WIOKERSHAM, WROTE HIM A LETTER." Probably the President never saw the letter. Probably It was sent to the proper Department by the Presi dent's Secretary. At least that was where the subject matter of the letter was discussed to the dislike of Wlckersham. And what did Wlckersham do then? Did he call on the President and ask for an interview? No. He did not care a tinker's hoot about what the President's attitude might be. He had a copy of that letter, and he was only trying to make up a record for another campaign anyhow. He was not after re sults. He was after something that would make a noise like campaign thunder. CRITICISED DEMOCRATS The charge Is made that certain Democrats who formerly supported Wickersham In his efforts to se cure an Alaska Legislature have gone over to "tho enemy," and they are severely criticised for It. These Democrats aided Wickersham in securing his "first step toward self-government." They were prepared to aid him to secure the second and third steps. But notwithstanding that he was invited by the President to take the next step, he not only re fused to do so, but criticised the President for extend ing him the invitation. The Democrats who aided Wickersham before be cause he favored the first step toward self-government are still for self-government. Wickersham was left at the end of the first step. If some of those who opposed the taking of the first step have now accepted the inevitable and are willing to keep step with the progressive Democrats, who refused to stop the fight for self-government when Wickersham stopped, the progressive Democrats are willing to have their aid. The progressive Democrats stand for principles rather than men. They desire to utilize all in Alaska that stands fairly and squarely for self-government and progress as long as it so stands. They are not hero worshipers on the one hand nor bile-iadcn vengeance seekers on the other hand. They are marching for ward?always forward?and they are glad when joined by those who may have formerly hampered rather than aided their progress. They will not refuse any man the right to stand up for Alaska. They are not blind, bigoted Bourbons. They would be glad to have Wickersham join them in their fight for self-govern ment notwithstanding his many wanton betrayals of the cause?howbelt. they will never again cease to watch him. Wickersham is coming to Alaska to make the hills ring with his denunciations of the administration. He is angry through and through because the President, Cabinet officers and Senators and Congressmen and all the others of high and low degree did not come to hlai. and ask "what would yot have?" Ho will attempt to convince people that It Is tho President's fault that he never met and talked with the chief executive of tho Nation. "The Proslden should have come to me?WIckersham?and asked for a chart and program," is the attitudo. By tho way, the presence in Alaska of Dr. Coo and the near approach of Wickorsham causes one to recall that when the late Legislature was in session Delegate WIckersham informed vhc members that he would get a law passed that would bring the Insane of the Territory back to Alaska. He pledged that he would have an insane asylum locatr-d at Skagway. But Alaska's insane are still In Or' gon. Some more i "piffle in Washington and peddle in Alaska!" Senator Sulzer stands for progress and efficiency. Senator Sulzer will not be a Delegate to Congress from Alaska for many months un-il he knows and Is known by all the Senators and Representatives in Con gress who aro worth while and all the Cabinet officers who have anything to do with Alaska. He will go to Washington and get results. A GOOD CITIZEN GONE (Port Townsend Leader) In the tragic death of Hon. D. S. Tr*y. of Chim acum. Jefferaon county and the State of Washington have lost the citizen who could least be spared. Progressive, Industrious, generous, affable; combining keen business Judgment with an open-handednoss which could not bear to see a fellow man In trouble, his good acts were as numberless as the sands of the sea. Of a mental and moral calibre which had made him one of the biggest men in the State, and pointed to even bigger possibilities in the future, he was taken away in the full vigor of manhood, with his work but partly done. .Many a hopelessly involved farmer of the Northwest who has had the benefit of his advice and financial assistance will miss the friend who helped him over the hard places; many a prosperous man will long remember the spirit of loyalty and fair ness which was his governing principle; many a friend will miss his lovable smile, warm hand clasp and never-failing word of encouragement. It is indeed a pity that the incomprehensible scheme of things should decree that the one most needed should he taken away. The memory of "Dave" Troy will be cherished for years by thousands of people of the State of Washington. The world would be a better place to live in if it contained more men cast in the same mold. FOR BETTER OR WORSE (Fairbanks News-Miner) Whether or not road building in Alaska will be hastened through the passage of Delegate Wicker sham's anti-road commission bill, now pending before Congress. Is a question which should receive the ser ious consideration of Northerners, whose future pros perity depends largely upon the rapid Improvement and extension of the elaborate system of wagon roads with which we have been provided by Colonel Rich ardson and his collegues of the Alaska Road Commis sion. The bill Introduced by the Delegate empowers the Territorial Legislature to "alter, amend, modify or repeal" the act of Congress relating to the construc tion and maintenance of wagon roads and trails in Alaska and, if passed, might be used by the Terri torial lawmakers to put an end to the commission of which Colonel Richardson is the moving spirit. ? ? ? * ? Knowing the hostile attitude of Delegate Wicker sham toward the head of the road commission, we are inclined to regard the pending measure with sus picion. If approved by Congress it will prove a dan gerous weapon in the hands of partisan legislators. NOT THE TIME TO CHANGE PILOTS (Whitehorse Star) White nobody supposed for a minute that the country would go to the everlasting bo^-wows if Mr. Hushes should be elected President, the fact that Woodrow Wilson has proven that he can safeguard the interests of the country during the most trying period through which it has ever passed, is suffic ient Inducement to the average voter to let well enough alone. That Mr. Hughes is an awfully nice man is not denied or even questioned. The majority of men are nice but oodles of them would make a sad mess of sailing the Ship of State.. Therefore as Mr. Wilson knows the course and as Mr. Hughes has never sailed it. the present is not an auspicious thne for changing pilots. If Wilson had not made good. It would be different, but he has made good in the past, is making good in the present and will make good in the future. Vive la Wilson. A FUNNY SIGHT (St. Ix>uis Republic) A Republican candidate going up and down the country complaining about President Wilson's diplo matic appointments makes a funny sight. Ambassador Herrick. whose case pains Mr. Hughes so deeply, knew nothing about diplomacy when lie went to Paris. He was president of a savings bank and an Ohio politic ian. Nevertheless. Herrick succeeded Henry White, a diplomat of long experience who knew France be cause he was educated there. GAG PUT ON DELEGATE (Valdez Miner) It is a fortunate thing that those Fairbanksans put a gag on Delegate Wickersham before he worked further damage to our interior trail appropriation. Had he been permitted to have his way he would tear up the road and destroy alt communication between the two towns to avenge his fancied grievance against the Road Commission. This is one Alaskan body that our Delegate has been forced to let alone; and the fact has galled him until he has become batty over it. It is a good thing for Valdez that the Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce stepped in and reminded the Hon. James that he was elected to serve all the people. HARD NUTS FOR HUGHES TO CRACK (Philadelphia Record) Would you have recognized Huerta? Would you be in favor o intervention in Mexico? Would you urge universal compulsory military service? Would you have urged upon Congress an embargo on shipments of munitions to the Allies? Are you in favor of ship subsidies? What are your specific complaints against the Federal reserve system? What would you have done about Belgium and the Lusitania? Dr. Alfred Hulse Brooks, head of the U. S. Geolo gical Survey work in Alaska, who is enroute to this part of the Territory, to'.d a Seattle reporter that he was neither a doctor of medicine nor a doctor of law; that the title which he bears was given to him by the people of Alaska, and that he values it more highly than any degree that could be conferred by a university. Dr. Brooks is a typical sourdough. Alaska has no firmer friend than this highly efficient official. Mining men in Alaska have learned to regard the opinion of Dr. Brooks above that of any other geolo gist In the country.?(Anchorage Times.) The town will appreciate the early installation of the electric light and power system. We trust that at least the main street of Anchorage will be lighted, so that a person may get about during the hours of darkness with some degree of comfort as well as safety.?(Anchorage Times.)

Those who havo never tested the usefulness to them of tho classified ndu arc apt to wonder about what the' cost will be of securing, through advertising, the result? they desire. What Is It costing you per dny, to be out of work? What 1b It costing you per day, to be without a tcn unt for that house, apartment or store? What Is It costing you to have a vacant furnished room. What Is It costing you to "get nlong" without needed help In your home, In your business? Would tho expense, each dny, for a classified ad be greater than the expense Incurred Inevitably through trust ing to luck about these things?
