Wednesday, October 28, 1908. CHARLES A. HOPP Editor and Proprietor. PUBLISHED EVERY WEDNESDAY An Ever Present Help Our esteemed contemporary, the Alaska Daily Record, comes nobly to our assistance in the tight for the in- 1 terests of Douglas Island, and where the News, "through a sense of delicacy," refrained from mentioning the names of our detractors, the Record bluntly tells the dear people just whoaud what we meant. How kind. And what a splendid thing it is for a newspaper not to be burdened with such a thing as a sense of delicacy. It requires a great deal of tact to con ' demu a fault in a brother in such a way that the brother is not euraged by i our words rather than enlighteued as to the error of his way. One who has such tact may, when he tlnds a brother whose feet have strayed from the straight aud narrow paths of rectitude and right, briug such a brother back to the fold. Kind words aud loviug deeds are powerful arguments. Auathemas aud billiugsgate but broadeu the chasm 'twixt right and wrong. No mau whose sou has transgressed | the law will write his name upon the wall that the gaping crowd may learu his shame. Rather will the wise man lead his i>on to the woodshed, and there in the .sileot solitude he will administer to him the 9trap-oil of a father's advice. , There are always two elements which i enter iuto every controversy; the right and the wrong. No man can say that he has a comer on all the right, any j more thau he has on all the goodness j and virtue and wisdom of the world, i So there is always a chance that the other fellow may be a little right, a little good or a little virtuous. Taking these things into consideration, it is never wise to be too blamed positive about any? hiug. But to get back to the question. The News has no crow to pick. It has no desire to put anybody off the earth. It honestly believed, and does yet, that no j good can come of repeated and contiu- j uous attacks upon the Treadwell Com pany, or any other company or individ- j ual doing business in Alaska. If there is a wrong, where the public is con cerned, out upon it and have done with it. That's all right. But if the howl is kept up continuously the public begins to perceive that there i9 some sinister motive back of it and discredits the whole business. Thereby no good is accomplished. Standing on the Douglas wharf the spot where Victor Soaulding and his associates made a splendid discovery of gold-beariog quartz is plainly visible with the naked eye. There is nothing remarkable about this except that it il luitrates how little of this country has been really prospected. And the men who make prospecting a business are very few. Doaglas Island has maybe ten or a dozen, and Juneau possibly as many more. As compared with the vast extent of country yet unexplored, they are but a handfull. One of the great needs of this section is men who will take their pick and shoxel and go out into the hills seeking for the treas ures that lie buried there. Excused The teacher? And why didn't you come to school yesterday? The pupil ? Please ma'am, me muvver didn't know school commenced yes tiddy, and she borrored Mrs. Green's almanic an' it wuz a last year's one. The teaoher ? And didn't your father know the day that the schools opened? The pupil? No, ma'am. He don't know nuffin 'bout days. The teachor ? How's that? The pupil? He works nights. School Report The "Gastineau" meets this coming Friday and will hold their third pro" j gram of this year. War has been deolared between the freshmen and the sophomores and juniors.

Leivers, '12. Absent Minded Hubby A minister's wife, a doct.or'3 wife and a traveling man's wife met one day re cently and were talking about the for getfulness of their husbands. The minister's wife thought her hus band was the most forgetful man living because he would go to church and for get nis notes and no one could make out what he was trying to preach about. The doctor's wife thought her hus band was the most fo getful, for he would often start out to see a patieut aud forget his medicine ca*e and, there fore, travel mile9 for nothing. "Well," said the traveling man's wife, "my husband beats that. lie came home the other day and patted moon the cheek aud said, "I believe I have seeu you before, little girl. What is your name?"'
