Seward Daily Gateway (Newspaper) - November 23, 1905, Seward, AlaskaDAILY GATEWAY GATEWAY PUBLISHING CO. SEWARD. - - ALASKA, SUBSCRIPTION RATES: $1.00 per month: ${2.00 per year. Thursday. xoy!•:Mm::: hmw> NO TIME FOR CAUTION This is not the year for Seward men to he cautious. The growth of the town has been hampered all summer and fall through lack of building material. There was a justification for thi> in the spring when the town was Mill an experiment, hut that time is past. If the business men of Seward want the town to grow they must carry stocks to meet the demands they expect in the future. Several buildings are now standing half-finished because there i> no mater- ial to proceed with construction, others would he under way if there were any assurance that the lot owners could get the material to complete them promptly. A local merchant >aid this week that he had been wait- ing for weeks to get the lumber to build a live-room cottage. A young man came in on the Oregon with money to build a large lodginghouse. He could not get material to finish any part of it and threatens to go out on the next boat. It* he does bo will not curry below a Battering report of the town, and nobody can blame him it lie tolls exactly what he found here. It i> true that the steamship corn- paries are partly* to blame for condi- tions. If they would put enough boats on the run to carry freight as fast as it N ordered instead of leaving it piled vv on the docks at Seattle there would ho more building material in Seward today. The companies say they have chartered all the boats they can g*et, which is probably true, but it they want to hold the business of this port they must change the system ot hunt- ing for boats after the freight is piled up on them. They should start a little sooner. Somebody else may* start first. No apology is offered to readers of the Catewav for the enlargement of the paper to four pages, increasing its J/.e 1 *\ more than one-third. Seward merchants wanted more space in which to tell what they have for sale and the easiness manager said it would he had judgment not to take all the adver- tisements he could get. He insists that they are more interesting reading than editorials and pay better. It-looks funnv at this distance to see % the jamboree in the Seattle convention over the nomination of a delegate to Congress who will have as much chance of getting a seat in the National House as John l). Rockefeller has of getting through the pearly gates. The passage of a camel through the eye of a needle i> easy in comparison. While the Alaska convention has been in session the Russian revolu- tionists have been total]v unable to % create noise enough to make them- selves heard. When men with money to pay for beds have to sleep on hotel tloors or warm chairs it looks as if a building boom is due in Seward. The men who waited so long at Sel- dovia for a boat might have located homesteads. They had time enough to prove up. It begins to look as if the rain supply in this neck of the woods has been vex ha listed. DAILY WEATHER REPORT Temperature at 7 a. m........ *.30. Temperature at 2 p. 42.
