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
Let every man buy what he can on Gastineau
channel, and the result will be improved Gastineau
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.
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
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
FOR BETTER OR WORSE
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
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
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
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

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
