Nome Paper on the Situation There.
1 here is no doubt that the situation is
serious enough, and it promises to grow
worse, of course, with the passing of time.
I he tucstion naturally arises, what shall
be done w Ith the great number of men who
aie unable to obtain employment and who
beliiK "bro!e," are unable to leave the
lomitrv? It is a serious question. Indeed,
and one that demands immediate alien
lion. I he News Ins referred In it before,
believing it to be ol ttnl impoitaiue to
this (.(immunity. I his (ommiuiity cannot
take i.ne ot the gteat number of indigent,
neither (.in it purdi.ise transportation to
the outside lor tliem at (.uireiit rates. It
is, therefore, up to tile transportation com
panies .iikI the government. I he former
might gixe a low rate and the latter could
gu irantee the payment. In this way the
situation would be lelleved, as in. my men
who .iic only too iiinIous to leturn to
their loriner homes would be able to do so.
It is 110 use to moralize over conditions,
I he oulv wa Is to i.ue them as promptlv
as possible when the arise. Weaie up
agiiusta vciy uuple.is.uit and meu.uing
situation. It must be met. I hese peo
ple must be gotten out of the country be
hue navigation does. I he (. hamber of
Commrue has outlined the jcilou It will
t iKe. I he government will be asked to
atloid transportation, and tills seems to be
the only pi.uticable solution of a bad case.
And the solution is repugnant to anv man
ol independent spiilt. Hut "spirit" does
uotdiun; in (.ises lIKe these. It is the
duly of the government to see that these
unlortuiiates, who are unable to leave the
(.ouutry by reason ol lack of means, be
given tree transportation out of the
couutrv. t-.Ultorlal in Nome Dally News,

Pelton Water Motor
Is so superior to all others as regards strenth, durability and economy of
water, in fact all that constitutes a HIGH CLASS WATER MOTOR,
as to admit of no comparison, adapted to every variety of service and
made of sizes varying Irom the fraction of i up to too H. P. Recent
scientific tests made at the Michigan University in connection with sev
eral other motors claimed tn be the best on the market showed 45 per
cent hlRher efficiency in favor of tavor of the PELTON, while the rela
tive cost per H. P. to buy was only one-third to one-half that of others.
Water companies desiring to make the best of their water supply should
discriminate In favor of the PELTON. Deliveries made from New York
or San Francisco, as may alford the best freight rates. Circulars free.
One of these motors can be seen any time operating THK MINKH presses.
