Evidently the bill to establish a Development Board for Alaska leaves r chance to govern the territory b\ a small bunch of outsiders. It is to be assumed that Secretary Lane never meant it to be as it appears and it is alsu to be assumed that Delegate Wickersham did not mean to have the affairs of Alaska conducted by a numerically small and non-elective body like that board. On the other hand it is hard to understand how Mr. l-ane or Mr. Wicker sham, both of them lawyers, could have overlooked the significance of that little clause. Do they really mean that the majority of the Development Board is to be composed of men who are not Alaskans and that those men will have everything to say in the matters of the greatest importance to Alaska ? This would bo a complete volte face in the case of the Delegate and something incomprehensible in the case of the Secretary of the Interior. Let us look into this bill some more. Card playing in a country like Alaska in winter time helps to pass away some terribly dull period.-. As things begin to look now can! playing promises to become substituted for everything else but the necessary duties of the day. When an evening is long and dark and cold that little round table with the stove and the light and the painted pieces of card paper pre sent some mighty attractions. Has anyone here ever got down to study card playing exactly? That is, study it for the purpose of learning what effects it exercises on those who indulge in it often. Is it waste of time or a splendid manner in which to kill a miserable time? What good does it do and what harm does it do? Poes it make the time so pleasant that it prevents one from doing something else that might be better or worse? Does it sharpen the intellect by compelling c ne to watch the play or does it dull the wits by keeping one from thinking generally or some other mental recreation? Card playing is one of those things that are immortal because of their own qualities. You may think and think for ever about why cards are for evil or good, and you might knock them and knock them and knock them for ever, or praise them and praise them but people will play them and play them, and it is something in this old world that anyone can do just as he likets. STORK SAVES HIM CINCINNATI, 0., Jan. 31.—“I was expecting a visit from the stork, Judge, ami was in a hurry to get home,” said Audry Abraham, when arraigned before Municipal Judge Fox charged with speeding. “Have you ever been arrested be fore?” asked the Judge. “Yes, about two years ago for the same offense, and I had the same ex ! euse.” “My, that stork is keeping you busy,” said Judge Fox. with a smile.

See ad. 11-1—tf ' HE SAYS “PREPAREDNESS WILL RUSSIANIZE AMERICA” BOSTON, Jan. 10.—Speaking in Faneuil Hall thi^ afternoon before the ■ closing session of the conference of the Society to Eliminate Economic Causes of War, Raymond L. Bridg I man, publicist, declared the most vital purpose of preparedness is not preparedness for war, but prepared ness against war. He said in part: “Nor is our purpose preparedness for war, but preparedness against war; not that we may be able to fight successfully, if we are forced, but j that wo may not be forced. “The present popular craze for pre j parednees for war leads straight to militarism. Prussian preparedness, the very root of modern militarism, was the direct cause of the exhaust i ing armaments of modern European | nations. Militarism inevitably per ! verts national moral sense. It breeds ! treachery, the policy of frightful ness, J cruelty, slaughter, the trampling of i treaties as scraps of paper, the sink j ing of Lusitanias, the murder of the j Armenian nations, the shooting of ! Edith Cavells. Human nature is the I same in America as abroad. That is I what preparedness for war will do for | us.” Roger Sherman Hoar, ex-assis I tant attorney-general, who was the j next speaker, said: “Let us waste no time trying to stop the present war. That question will be settled by the belligerents themselves. If we would prevent war, we must eliminate the causes of war. Cause should be distinguished from occasion. The cause is what builds the pyre for a world conflagra tion, whereas the occasion is merely the match that happens to set it off. The monster we must blame for lay ing the foundation for the present war is a Jekyll-Hyde sort of deity, whose good name is Patriotism and whose bad name is Nationalism. A few score years ago we owed our al legiance to the state, today we owe it to the nation, tomorrow we shall owe it to the inter-nation."
