Xoy my How 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 lodging House. He could not get material to finish any part of it and threatens to go out on the next boat. It he does to 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 conditions. If they would put enough boats on the run to carry freight As fast As it n ordered instead of leaving it piled Vav on the docks at Seattle there would to More building material in Seward today. The companies say they have chartered All the boats they can get which is probably True but it they want to hold the business of this port they must change the system of 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 Cate was for the enlargement of the paper to four pages increasing its 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 advertisements he could get. He insists that they Are More interesting Reading than editorials and pay better. It looks funny 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 revolutionists 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 floors 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 a listed. Daily weather report temperature at 7 a. A. .30. Temperature at 2 p. 42.
