In ■a few short months the boat bound for the north will be bringing capacity loads 01 people to Seward. Most of us do not realize just what thn means for Seward. None of us know how wel off he is. Business men who are not making as large pro fits this year as they did the last, and who are not selling as much goods across the counter have lost their per spective just as the worke has who cant get the big mor ey he did during the war and who is spending all he make? in meeting the high cost of living. Many are making sacri fices, but it is better to sac rifice a little than to lose the whole loaf as we might have had a-panic occurred as ar. aftermath of the war. We are well off and don’t know it Common sense will lead us to be thankful that we didn’t get a worse jolt af ter such a cataclyamic war as the recent one, instead of sighing and complaining be cause the dollars are fewer and harder to get Business reports indicate that a million or two work ers are out of employment The man who walks the street and can find nothin' to do, is meeting one of tiu most discouraging erfperien ces of life. It is not surpris ing that he rebels against th social system. ✓ n * * i « some oi mese people arc in no wise to blame. Other, have helped create the condi tion of which they complain Business concerns usually turn off their least efficien people first Those who have done less work since thei. pay was doubled by the war are not in any position ti find fault. Also those who squander ed their money on superflui ties, helped make capital scarce by their lack of tnrif t If money spent extravagant ly had been put into banks £ great many industries, now shut down would have beer, able to secure funds and tc keep running. Thrift and economy anc hard work are the best guar antees of regular industry. Also the capitalist has a very heavy responsibility to keep his plant running if he can ftrdbly do so. Our responsibiliy at the present time lies in keeping the town of Seward running and the most sure and best way to do this is to get toget her on every subject that is vital to the future welfare of the town. Unless we do those people who are coming to Alaska this season with the idea of making Alaska their i future home will pass thru < Seward and journey on. The 1 only possible way we car. i keep $ep> in Seward is by j v united effort If this cannot be done there will be no im< mediate future for the towr of Seward. Bill Suggested By C. D. Gar field—Is Unanimously Ei dorsed by AU—Measure i: Fully Explained. A round of applause greel ed the announcement that £ bill for a law was being pre pared barring aliens fron fishing in Alaska. It was prt pared by Charles D. Garfielt: during an address made as sembled fishermen and othe; at Union Hall in Juneau re cently on the value and util ization of fish byproducts ir Alaska. The speaker said that i' was proposed to pass a lav that no one save a citizen oi the United States or one whc had declared his intention d becoming a citizen a yeai prior to the time he wished to engage in fishing should he i-Jlowed to engage in fish ing and that every such per son must be a bona fide resi dent of the territory at least a year, before engaging in fishing. It was pointed out that the fishermen for most of the canneries to the westward aow employed men who are brought from the outside, vho are paid off, not in the territory, but after they re turn outside, and who contri bale nothing to the support of the territory. The logical offset of the law, Mr. Gar field said in answer to a ques don would be to compel the fish packers to hire their nen from among the bona fide residents in the South eastern Alaska and other A1 .skaa fowns. « m /> r • i 1 « . < mi . ».»arno;a saia tne men jinployed for the short fish ng season to the westward aade more money than was nade by the fishermen of Joutheasiom Alaska for a onger season. The speak er showed that from over 240,000,000 worth of fish! .aken from the territory less ban ten per cent, remained; n the territory. Mr. Garfield went into de rail regarding the different neetiugs held under the di action of the bureau of fish* jries, resulting in the recent 'iew rules restricting stream ishing for the propagation j and repioauction of salmon,i .s well as the work of the Uaska Territorial Fish com-. nission in planting salmon fry in lakes and streams. He \ laid that to artificially repro I .luce fish enough for the nor mal salmon run in Alaska a -ine of naicheries stretching from Juneau to Cordova •could be in cessary. A number- of questions re lating to the subject were out to Mr. Cc rfield. A mo tion was put and it was the unanimous sentiment of aV those present by a standing cote that tlie j roposed biiJ barring. Jierts should tie en acted into a 'aw V 1' - ."i About twelve of the Reg- ; liars who hold down differ- | mt jobs along the right of ! vay returned to their jxrts j ;his morning after spending | ;he week end in Seward, vh • / • % !
