CORDOVA, ALASKA, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1918.
HAVE A LITTLE SENSE.
V liile we cannot Relieve that there are enough foolish peo
ple in Alaska who will vote Alaska back into the lawless condi
tiwn it was in in the days of ‘98, and at the same time vote their
municipalities into poverty and their schools into inefficient
conditions, we nevertheless cannot stop the work of warning the
people what to expect if they allow the chimera of prohibition
to intluencc enough votes to abolish licensed liquor houses.
Yesterday’s and today's papers certainly had enough evidence
ot the face that prohibition does not prohibit, taking the case
of Seat I le.
Then* is so much whiskey in Seattle today that it is as
cheap and as easy to get as it was when the saloons were all
open only the revenue troin the sale of liquor is prohibited—
t lie sale continues, and is in the hands of the lawless class. There
is so much whiskey in Seattle that a rival bootlegging gang was
able to steal it by the auto truck load', 200 cases at a time — it
could never be stolen in such quantities while licensed' condi
tions maintained there.
When any man or woman tolls you that it is impossible to
get liquor anywhere on earth where prohibition is “in force,”
they tell you something that your reason and experience tells
you is not true. If they couldn’t find it there they didn’t seek
it. \\ hei'ever there is a demand the supply will be present—it
ma\ be in hiding and of inferior order, but it will be where the
demand is. Twelve men sell liquor in Fairbanks today. Under
prohibition fifty or many times fifty men would be selling li
quor in Fam banks and all hell couldn’t prevent it — they
would', however, be contributing nothing to the upkeep of the

ili» youth of our city just what Prohibition teaches the youth of
• •very Prohibition camp; teaching them to be sneaks and that
there is no crime in lawlessness unless you are found out. Whis
key could be shipped In here, and it would be shipped in and de
livered at the front door of anti-prohibitionists and at the back
door of the prohibitionist, but there would be no revenue from
the sale thereof and only harm could come from Prohibition.
There will be more “prohibition” news from Seattle, as
th da; - go by, for there is lawlessness everywhere where prohi
bition i- working. As civilization exists today crime and' dis
aster are the sought-after news stories, and the press correspon
dent' run to them. Watch for the stories of whiskey crimes
and the outrages in Seattle, and watch for the publication of
i . Seattle tax levy for the ensuing year and the evidences of
financial decay in that town of “Fourflushville.” Prohibition
blights wherever it touches, in Seattle no less than anywhere,
and you better consider before you ballot whether you wish to
I>ut the boots to Alaska and spread disaster and lawlessness
over this territory.—Fairbanks News-Miner.
-:o;
While he may have kept us out of war, his peace has cost
us more lives than McKinley’s triumphant war with Spain.
--;o:
Vi'count Bryce has struck a match that ought to light a
new way lor both F.ngland and Germany.
Falkeiihawn seems determined to take “a fall out of”
Koumania in order to avenge his own fall from high power.
-;o;
Carranza proposes an intensive campaign against Villa,
w hom he hopes to catch. Watchful waiting is a poor remedy
against war.
-;o:
I‘resident Wilson is a man of nerve—or reckless unwisdom,
lb sent Secretary Daniels into Maine to make sixteen speeches,
and Maine .'poke like a scorned woman. Now he proposes to
send Daniels into the central states.
-;o:
Portland schools had a dishwashing contest and a boy won
it. The invasion of the business world by women rauy plunge
masculinity into the suds. The fact that a boy voluntarily
washes dishes in a public contest is not a happy omen.
-:o:
Literature of the French novel type, not long ago surrep
titiously read when at all, now enjoys the widest vogue and is
featured in the lending stories of the magazines. Matters which
in real life are spoken of in whispers glare blatantly forth in
type for all.
-:o:
Announcement by the navy department that the four new
dreadnoughts authorized in the naval preparedness bill will be
named Colorado, Washington, Maryland and West Virginia,
sends a tremendous rivalry among the states for these honors.
These will be the largest and most powerful vessels afloat.
-:o;
Harold F. McCormick, a Chicago millionaire, proposes a
plan. It is unfortunate that In* is a millionaire. It is a more
m less pathetic fact that since Ford spoke some months ago the
public doesn’t hear well when a millionaire speaks. McCor
mick’s project proposes that “selected neutral countries” shall
ask the waning nations what they’re fighting about. This is
not going to improve the auditory connection between million
.Tires and ns of the “mob.”
