THE DREAMERS"
OCCASIONALLY a reader discovers
a gem of newspaper literature that stands
out so far above the ordinary run of written expression as to be in a class by itself.
Not often are these jewels found in the
daily papers���in fact the sordidness with
which the modern daily is crammed seems
to permeate even into that holy of holies,
the sanctum sanctorum where the editorials are written, and to reduce the "brain
column" to the level of mediocrity.
Ii is in the highways and byways
that the reader must search for the best
writing���in the weekly or monthly publications which in many instances are more
or less hobbies of their publishers. Such
a classic is contained in the last number of
the Alaska Weekly to reach us, an editorial by "E.W.K.". In this editorial Earl
Knight has taken a few pearls of the
English language and strung them into
a necklace of beautiful expression that
glows like the soul of a poet. And underneath the words is a thought which will
strike a responsive chord in the mind of
any reader who possesses an atom of imagination.
We were discussing this editorial with
a boyhood friend, now white haired, who
has spent the greater part of his life in
the north.   As a feeler we asked:
you think perhaps Earl has written over
the heads of most of his readers?"
"Absolutely not," he quickly replied.
"I believe that in the north you will find
a higher average of intelligence than can
be found in any other section of the globe.
Many came here to escape the artificial
ties of so-called civilization. Nearly all
came because they had sufficient imagination to visualize a freedom of thought and
action they could never attain in the old
thickly settled sections. No sir, you may
be sure this article will be clipped and preserved in many a cabin scrap-book."
The editorial is entitled "The Dreamers" and reads as follows:
We only met him a couple of weeks
ago, although we have read his work and
have felt that we knew him for a long
time. We sat in his room and talked of
many things���of journalism, of literature,
of art, of those things we would like to
write and couldn't, of the things we had
written and did not publish because of
shrinking from laying bare our hearts���
but most ef all we talked of the Alaska
this man knows and loves with his very
soul. A few days later when we met in a
hotel lobby he said to a friend by way of
introduction, "I want you to meet the
dreamer." I was abashed and shocked���
for I have striven to be practical and to
tear the golden woof of dreams out of my
soul. He may be right���I have since been
wondering, and wondering if I would
change it if I might.
"Don't, ly sublime. Whether the dream
j takes shape in the spires of a
noble cathedral or the massive
pile of masonry that house3 a
"Ford" plant���it is the dream
that counts���and only the dreamer who lives, "If you can dream
and not make dreams your master," well���we accept the hazard
���for without the dream the
world is murky grey.
The limitation of humanity is
the limitation of man's imagina ;
tion. That which may be imagined may be accomplished;
only that which is beyond man's
capacity to dream is outside the
realm of possiole achievement.
Alaska is a land of the stuff of
which dreams and dreamers are
made. Young, virile���with an
enthusiasm kept clean and fresh
with the winds that blow from
snowy peak and open stretch of
tossing water. It is a land peopled with dreamers who have
not made dreams their master���
whe are destined to translate
them, instead, into the building
ef an empire. Slowly���at times
with hea-'t-breaking delay���the
dream takes shape���a road here,
a trail there, a mine is opened
and another storehouse of wealth
lends its share; and never dees
the real Alaskan through disappointment, obstacle, er apparent
failure lose for a moment the
vision which is his.

John Boyle O'Reilly, adventurer, soldier of fortune and poet���gifted with all
the mystical insight into the beauteous things of
life, which is a heritage of the sons of the Emerald Isle, once wrote a poem called "The Dreamer."
We read it, in the now fast receding days of our
impressionable youth, and one couplet has haunted
us through the years like the delicately sweet fragrance of the wild rose that lined the roadsides of
our barefoot days when all life was a dream cf a
great tomorrow to be ours for the taking���just a
~~~ ~ simple line,  "For the  Dreamer
lives forever, and the toiler dies
in a day."
All the world loves a drea.iner
���the busy, practical, workaday
world may look on him with supercilious aloofness and upraised
eyebrow, but its heart is envious
of the dream that never fails the
dreamer���the world is his, the
glittering star-jewels in the blue
vault of heaven, the moon that
peeps from behind the fleecy
lacery of flying clouds, the efful
gent sun and the tiny wildflower
that braves the early spring are
a part of him and weave themselves into the multicolored tapestry of his dreams. He sees
each one of the magnificent and
dainty artifices under which God
hides.
It is the dreamer of dreams
and the singer of songs who has
made life more abundant and
rendered the mur.dane world a
better place to pass this hour of
life. Whether it he with palette
and brush, chisel and mallet or
the pen, through which man
strives to give his dream to the
world is all one. To the ear of a
master the chords of a Chopin
nocturne, the ring of a dreamer's
pick against the rock, the whir
of factory wheels, the realization
of some man's dream���are equal.
