QOD HELP ALASKA
To the people of Alaska it will not
seem strange that those who are press
ing the candidacy of Got. 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
If his record shall commend Gov.
Brady to President Roosevelt as that of

cate of the best things lor the terri
tory," then God help the territory

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

Douglas Ptople; Shoot A.w?y
Juneau, April 13 ?A shooting scrape
between a man named Parkelso who
passes under the name of Collins, and
Pbor master Herring, of Douglas, took
place at Douglas this afternoon. Two
shots were exchanged, but fortunately
no one was injured. Par kelson has
been bothering a Douglas woman
named Evans, with his attentions, and
the woman appealed to Poormaster
Herring for protection. Herring spoke
to Collins about the matter and de
manded that he deaist from bothering
Collins was obstinate and in the
course of the argument drew a gun and
Bred p*int blank at Herring. Her
ring's son, who was present, immedi
ately returned the shot. Neither shot
took effect. Collins was arrested.
