SEWARD, ALASKA, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY, X 1916.
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
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
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.

' 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."
