Most of us are inclined to get very nervous when we learn of some little hitch in the emergency appropriation but we should remember that the railroad money contained in that appropriation is only one item and that it might not at ail be in question. For aught we know to the contrary the bill might be held up because of some clause providing for money for some thing at Kalamazoo. By the way. the Gateway never said the bill had been signed by the president; It quoted the purser of a steamboat as saying so. It is most likely that the people will vote today for the election of a mayor separately from the city council and only goodness knows yet who will be the choice but whoever he is he will have the sympathy of the public if he is fated to preside over men to whom a knowledge of parliamentary rules or courtesy is as thoir knowledge of the other world. Mayor Thompson of Chicago, according to the advices on yesterday’s boat, is charged with accepting money from employees of the city over whom he had control. This charge may be false and it may not be. Thomp son has recently closed saloons on Sundays and has done other things which were likely to cause some attempt to injure him, but, on the other hand, an organization bearing the prepossessing title of Young People's t ivie league is the one which has accused him. Young people are not usually the kind to bring false accusations ami there is a suggestion borne home to the mind by the two words that is certainly unfavorable to the mayor. In addition U> this there is always the suspicion that public bodies which have the privilege of hiring men at the expense of the taxpayers and which raise their salaries ami emoluments beyond reason have some strong personal reason for their supposed generosity. There is not a man of us who has followed politic® even as an observer who has not encountered some of the most disgusting dishonesty amongst men who have been elected by the people. One of the chief methods of thievery is that which is alleged against Thompson. The elected men hire people on the taxpayer’s money, try to make the tax roll as large as possible, raise the wages of the employees as high as they can ami then compel those salaried people to “come across.” Thank heaven all public bodies are not this way but enough of them adopt those methods to make a man believe that all employees if possible should be chosen by the people themselves. Sometimes it happens that the majority of a public body is honest but only too often it also happens that the dishonest members are the ones who get control of the salaried officials. They make it a point to do so.

THE MINER’S STORE FRANK J. COTTER, Manager Phone Adams 131 “Don’t Forget the Parcel Post” Seward, Alaska — HENRY FORD. Henry Ford has beon called a jack .tss and a clown because he hired a ship and sailed across the bca to stop the most frightful slaughter the world has ever known. The big thing in his action is not the question j whether he will or will not stop the; war, but the fact that he is willing to try! It was by trying that he got! where he is. Hut still he keeps on , trying. In the face of overwhelming odds, ( in spite of a world-wide criticism, he, is willing to undertake the greatest job that ever fell to the lot of a human being in the world’s history. He brushes aside the thousands of columns of newspaper criticisms, he ignores the public utterance of so-j called statesmen, he sets his face to-1 ward the most glorious goal that any j man ever hoped to achieve—and goes j on his way Trying. So far, he is the only person who! ias taken a definite step toward end ing the war. True it may not be the right step, you got that by trying. The men who sit in swivel chairs and sneer and make funny jokes about that man Ford are not taking steps of any kind to end the war. The job looks too big and too hopeless to them. It looks big to Ford and may be it looks hopeless to him. But he’s got the nerve to try and spends his own money. Asking aid of no man. What a nation this would bo, if each industry could be headed by a bord who was willing to try, what chance would any other nation under the sun have with us. What if more of us were willing to try and less of us were slaves of convention and creatures of habit. There is a word in the dictionary called can’t, leave it there. Never use it. Well we’ve been “Henry Fording” it for the past twelve years, and expect to keep right at it, until the Powers that be, and the Engineers that direct it, awaken to the fact that Seward is the Begin ning and Final jumping off place of construction of Government railroads Si Alaska.
