THE CONVICTION OF KRAUSE
The conviction of Edward Krause of first degree
murder for slaying and robbing James Plunkett, a
Juneau pioneer, is a matter for congratulation, and
credit will be freely extended to United States Dis
trict Attorney James A. Smlser and those who have
worked under him in marshalling the evidence and
presenting it to the jury, and to the unflinching per
formance of the jurors. In fact, the conduct of all the
Krause cases is entirely creditable to the United States
officials and the others who gathered the evidence,
link by link until a chain that will lead to the scaf
fold. if last night's verdict stands the tests of the
higher courts, was woven?and it is creditable to the
citizenry taat furnished the jurors and general moral
No one who has followed the evidence in the
Krause cases can escape the conviction that one of
the arch-criminals of the century was run to
earth when the men who were sent on the trail ot
Krause after the disappearance of William Christie
a little over a year ago got in their work. Five
times he has been placet^ on trial for felonies since
that time, and five convictions have resulted. It is
stated that facts that would sustain 32 further in
dictments?37 in all?have been dug up by those
who have conducted the investigations. If the theatre
of the Krause career had been on the Atlantic sea
board where the population is dense, in the field of the
newspapers of national fame, there w-ould not be a
hamlet in the land where his face would not be fa
miliar to the people and where his name would not
be linked with those of the master fiends of the ages.
With four murders, and perhaps five, traced to his
hands, and many other crimes, including robbery,
forgery, impersonating an officer, impersonating his
own murdered victims, and other diabolical acts, he
will go down in the history of Alaska as the worst
of all her criminals?not excepting "Soapy" Smith.
It adds to the feeling of security in the North
to realize that we have the officials and the disposi
tion to follow such a criminal to the bitter end. It is
creditable to Southeastern Alaska citizenry that five
juries have promptly and unhesitatingly found verdicts
of gui'.ty after hearing the tales of crime. In all the
?>0 men who have sat upon juries that have tried
Krause there has been not one with maudlin or un
balanced sympathies to prevent the irresistible and
unerring march of justiae. The time has passed when
men can murder and steal in the North with im
The Empire joints in the congratulations to all
those who have had to do with the five convictions
of Edward Krause. They have done a great deal
to add to the stability of Alaska's political lnstitu- i
Hons, and to the security of her society.
WELCOME TO MR. GRIGSBY 1
Southeastern Alaska will welcome the coming of ]
George B. Grigsby?Alaska pioneer, leading lawyer 1
of Nome, former mayor of the Westernmost American '
municipality, idol of the people of Seward Peninsula, |
and fine Alaska citizen. Mr. Grigsby, who ar- ;
rived in the capital city last night, will open his i
campaign in the First Division with a speech here *
tomorrow night at the Coliseum, where he will handle j
the issues of the campaign without glove9. He is
said to be the best platform speaker in the Terri
tory. His personality is attractive. His ability un- y
Mr. Grigsby is the candidate of the Democratic ?
party for Attorney-General of the Territory of Alaska, r
and he brings with him to this Division a reputation, p
earned by hard work and retaining by unfailing in- '
tegrity of purpose, second to none in Alaska. The p
voters of Juneau 3hould not miss the opportunity to n
hear him. He will tell them many things that they Is
should know. And, his standing in the Territory as 0
a former official, a citizen ar.d a candidate for high ?
office, entitle him to a hearing from those of all t<
political parties. a
The Coliseum should be filled to overflowing b
Friday night. p
DISARMAMENT IN TEXAS n
We imagine that the freeborn citizens of Texas ly
will read with considerable interest a suggestion from
New London. Conn., that neutral zones. 30 miles wide h'L
on each side of the border be established and patrolled to
jointly by the troops of Mexico and the United States, ti
the inhabitants on both sides to be disarmed. It is
said this suggestion come3 from the Mexican commis- jc
sioners, and if it does, we conclude that they have j to
not reckoned sufficiently upon Texas. The people down
there are inclined to be proud and stand upon their
constitutional rights, ono of which is to bear arms.
They havo not been invading Mexico and the State
has exhibited no incapacity to hold its people to an
observance of the rights of Mexico. Therefore Texas
is very likely to Inquire why a strip of its territory
20 miles wide and as long as the international boun
dary should be put under martial law. We fancy the
inquiry will be difficult to answer.
The Fairbanks Times, urging people to be Repub
licans, says the Republican party has been Alaska's
good friend and that it is the party that is pledged
to Alaska's welfare. So? The Republican National
platform does not mention Alaska. Candidate Hughes
devoted 20 words to the Territory in his Seattle
speech, and then to say only that he would like to
see tho Territory developed. In the East Republican
campaign orators are attacking the Wilson adminis
tration for its extravagance In building a $35,000,000
railroad in the Territory.
Democrats should not fail to attend* the meeting
of the Juneau Democratic Club tonight. Those who
attend will have an opportunity to meet Mr. Grlgsby,
the party nominee for Attorney-General.
Save Friday night for the Grigsby rally?at the
Coliseum?It will be free to all.
COAL FROM ALASKA
(New York Times)
Now there is news from Alaska of more import
ance to our people, and possibly more Interesting,
than the report about the work of Stefansson's Can
adian exploring expedition that was sent to the Times
from Nome last week by Dr. Anderson. He end his
associates are bringing to Seattle, with a collection
of Eskimo folklore and cat's cradle games, some speci
mens of copper which they found. But the copper de
posits are not in the United States Territory, being
situated a little east of Alaska, and they have no
commercial value because they are practically inac
cessible. We have an abundance of copper in Alaska,
at places where it can easily be mined and shipped
to our Pacific coast states, which received $26,000,000
worth of it last year. And wo also have in Alaska an
enormous quantity of coal. The news we are going
to say something about relates to this coal and a rail
The first trainload of coal from the famous and
very extensive .Matanuska coal field was brought down
by rail to tidewater, at Anchorage, a distance of sev
enty-one miles, on the 16th. This railroad is a new
one that our government has been building with money
appropriated by Congress. When the Matanuska
mines or deposits were reached last week the achieve
ments were celebrated with as much warmth of ap
preciation as could be found in so cold a country. A
party of enthusiastic citizens was carried to the coal
fields from Anchorage in a special train chartered b;
the little city's chamber of commerce. In this party
were officers of the Engineering Commission which
supervised construction of the railroad, and the Rev.
Peter Trimble Rowe, Bishop of Alaska. They saw the
first trainload of coal beginning its journey to the
port of Anchorage and a ship.
This is good news for Alaska and for the people
and industries of our Pacific Coast States. There
is no end of coal up there. The cost of coal in
Oregon. Washington and California will be largely
reduced. East year wo received nearly $67,000,000
worth of copper, canned salmon, furs, gold and silver
from this great northern Territory, which was bought
in 1S67 for only $7,200,000. Hereafter much will be
added for coal.
When wo have lived for some time in Alaska we
pay little attention to the extraordinary place occu
pied by the malamute in Alaskan life although the
brute permeates almost every phase of it. He is to
Alaska what the camel is to Arabia. He is indigenous
to the soil of the Territory. He gives local colors to
stories of Alaska as a kangaroo gives it to Australia
and long ago Alaska would have probably enshrined
him as its national and only beloved emblem if he
were only pretty enough and could conduct himself
with anything approaching gentility.
It is impossible anywhere in the whole length
and breadth of the Territory to get away ifrom him.
Touch at Petersburg or Wrangell or Ketchikan for
the first time coming north and you hear his chorus.
Steam down the Yukon river, up the Takhini, the
Tanana, any of them and the first intimation you
receive that you are approaching a village comes
from the malamute answer to the steamer whistle.
Travel the trail and you either have him along as
your best friend or you must hide your bacon to
keep some stray specimen from eating it. Enter a
modern town and he runs between your legs on the
me maimute is a peculiar beast. un tno trail
he is man's best friend. He has made the gold
discoveries and the consequent development of the
Territory possible. The malmute has opened Alaska
to man. The other side of the Malamuto. however,
is that he is a treacherous wretch. Over and over
again when he is traveling in packs he has taken (
human lives. Near the city of Nome a few years 1
ago a pack almost completely devoured a boy in his ;
teens. But he is not to blame for all this. He prob
ably threw the boy down first in play and then saw 3
no harm in doing the rest. He is only a dog.
In nature he is just like the Territory and its
Native inhabitants. For this reason he is worth
jtudying. Ho Is an uncultivated type of dog a3 the 1
Territory and the Territory's Natives are uncultivated.
No three things in this world harmonize with such
poetic perfection in their three different spheres
as the wilder parts of Alaska, especially near the
aouth of the Yukon, and the Native and the Mala- 1
nute. Each of them is possessed of an uncanny t
peace of exterior and of a latent and fatal fierceness.
Nothiug can kill so quickly as the wilderness when I
it becomes aroused and of the Malamutes and Na
:ives the same holds true. The Maiamute is not j
>nly indigeous to the land but he is part of it. He s
trows as naturally out of it as weeds grow out of
incultivated ground. Let us hope that as the coun- 11
ry and its original inhabitants only need care to
lourish the Maiamute only needs the same to make *
lim an animal of which we might be proud.
Wickersham was a good Delegate, probably, ten
ears ago. But times arc changing rapidly and Wick
s as far behind the times as it is possible for a
nan to be and draw his salary. Our opposition to
dm is derived from the fact that the Territory needs ...
lew blood. Sulzer would be more popular in a Re- -1
ublican Congress and wield more influence in mat- ^
era pertaining to the good of the Territory than ?
rould Wick, who i3 living in the dim and "musty" <?
ast. A business administration calls for a business *|
ran at the head of Territorial affairs. Wickersham o
$ not a business man; he belongs to the old school ?
f demagogic politicians. Sulzer has made a success ^
f his business as a miner; Wickersham has made o
failure of his business as a politician. Is it wise ?
3 continue to waste our time in Congress by electing J |
man who has nothing tcr commend him in the past <?
ut his faculty for making enemies??(Valdez Pros- *>
ector.) < J
It should always be remembered that people make <>
