Brady for re appointment should represent by infer ence that honesty is a scarce article in this district. It has been the habit of the governor to malign Alaska and it is in keeping with the eternal fitness of things that his supporters should speak deprecatingly of the peo ple over which they would install him as chief executive in perpetuity. It will seem strange, however, to hear that anyone had urged that Gov. Brady is an "intelligent and progress ive advocate of the best things for the territory." If Gov. Brady has ever stood for progress in Alaska, the people of this district have no knowledge of the fact. He has fought with all of his stubborn nature every proposition for advancement that has been proposed for the distri.t.. He opposed with all the bitterness of which he is capable the movement in 189P, which resulted in a convention through which the people of the district could express themselves. He opposed the plan to have a delegate to congress, until the indignation meetings taught him that his position was in jeopardy. He has characterized the sturdy prospectors, miners, and business men, who are making Alaska a white man's country, as adventurers who are preying upon the Indians, and when he announced his conversion to the proposition for a delegate in congress, he did so on con dition that the Indians could vote, so as to protect themselves against the vhite men of the district. Still later, in order that he could make a point against the accomplishment of the hope of the people for self-government, he has asserted that the district is retro grading. If his record shall commend Gov. Brady to President Roosevelt as that of an "intelligent and progressive advo cate of the best things lor the terri tory," then God help the territory there is help in sight from no other source. The Russian fleet seems to make greater progress toward its own de struction than it does toward that of the enemy. E. J. White, who will soon become editor of the Whitehorse Star, is one of the beat newspaper men in the north and one of the best fellows on earth. The reasons urged for the election of school teachers in the spring by the present school board, rather than in the summer by *the board that will be chosen in June, seems conclusive. There is no douut but that the peop:e are willing to leave the matter with the members of the school board in in whom they have ample confidence, and who have given the matter careful thought.
