PULP INDUSTRY AN ACCOM
PLISHED FACT
The wood pulp Industry in Alaska
has ceased to be a mere hope. It is
here—an accomplished fact. Alaska is
making wood pulp and shipping it.
Hereafter it will appear with the
fish, copper, gold and other leading
products of the north. The people of
the north are under obligations to
the Kennedy brothers, Mr. Lassa and
their associates for pioneering this
industry to a successful conclusion.
It is a great thing to know that the
development of the wood pulp and pa
per business of Alaska is already un
der way, and that the first mill is in
operation.
And this is but the beginning of
this industry. There will be many
such plants as that at Speel river
in the near future, and in addition
we may expect great paper mills
at an early date to make finished
paper from the wrood pulp.
The development of the pulp busi
ness in southeastern Alaska should
bring more people here in the end to
make permanent homes than have
the mining and fishing industries.
Pulp and paper mills will bring, of
course, a great logging and lumbering
industry, and they will add to the
fleet of small craft plying the waters
of southeastern Alaska. They will
mean additional business, and a wid
er market for the products of the
soil and the sea. They will mean
a busy population for twelve months
in the year—for the winter as well
as the summer.
Let the good work go on.—Juneau
Empire.
KEEP A-SCRATCHIN’
Students of political economy have
fatrly grown hoarse telling the world
at large that the so-called "quiet
ness" prevailing in industry and its
corollaries is purely psychological;
that while, it is true, a certain re
adjustment and shaking down is in
progress, there is no reason why the
and of it should not be hastened by
ojjJimlstic action suited to the
thought. But if the average person
is loth to believe that the economists
know what they are talking about,
he can get an object lesson that
should be helpful right in his own
backyard; or, if not there, certainly
in the rear area of his neighbor’s
home. To-wit, the rooster.
Times there are indeed when
worms are scarce, the rooster finds,
yet he keeps right on a-scratching.
The fact that he cannot find a
worm in the first few minutes of his
work merely whets his determina
tion to work all the harder. And,'
what is more, he advertises the fact
that he is right on the job; he ruf
fles his feathers and makes the
gravel rattle until not a feathered in
habitant in the ward but knows that
Chanticleer has set his mind on win
ning out. Eventually, of course, his
endeavors are rewarded. By his tri
umphant "Cock-a-rook-a-roo-o-o!” he
gives voice to vindication of his be
lief. He knew he would find what
he was seeking, if he kept on trying,
and he has proved himself correct in
his surmise.
Never a rooster that ever quit so
long as he had a scratch in him. But
-hdw different with humans when the
godsips of the business barnyard say
that the worms are scarce and hard
to find. Chanticleer wouldn’t believe
them, but then he is not so sensitive
to the chill cross-urrents of adversity
as he would be if he were human.
The wingless prototypes of Chantic
leer are not only more likely to feel
that the oltlook is hopeless, but they
evdn fail to do as he does in ad
vertising by his very semblance of
energy that he is determined to
prdvo the pessimists wrong.
The Biblical injunction of “go to
the aunt," when in need of inspira
tion to be industrious, might very
well be paraphrased to include our
well-known barnyard friend in the
present case. If the temporarily dis
heartened could but ape the cheery
insistence of the rooster—advertis
ing as he does, so that the world may
know they are still on the job and
"a-scratchin’"—there is no reason to
believe that they will not have an op
portunity to crow much sooner than
they had dreamed.—Ketchikan Chron
icle.
