NOW IS THE HUE
Now is the time for the
people of Seward to get to
gether and stay together. 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. ✓

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

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.

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
