A question ha* been raised as to in
justice of the conclusions arrived at bv
the Daily Alaskan that the disasters
which have followed the Russian arms
in the Orient are due to incompetency
and corruption in high places which
are beyond remedy because that coun
try is a monarchy in the government
of which the people have no voice. It
is said in answer to this position that
Japan is also a monarchy, and that Rus
sian defeats cannot be taken as the vic
tories of a free people.
It is true that Japan is not a repub
lic, but it is a limited monarchy, the
popular branch of the law making
power of which is chosen by popular
election. However, this is not the
main reason why the conditions in
Japan are not those that naturally re
sult in countries where the (towers of
govern ment are placed completely
in the hands of the common people. At
the present time the Japanese people
are swayed by a peculiar but fervent
patriotism which has inspired alt strata
of society in that land. A fanaticism,
pec-iliar with Oriental peoples, such as
for generations at a time has caused
Asiatics to seek the opport unity to die
far their religious convictions, just now
is operating to take the place with the
Japanese of the patriotism which in
other countries comes from a realiza
tion on the part of the masses that they
are the government and that when
they fight a national foe, they tight for
their own rights as freemen.
... .71
... It
Unless the Japanese nation, like that
of Great Britain anil other limited
monarchies, shall continue constantly
to increase the extent of those functions
of government exercised by the com
mon people and to a corresponding ex
tent curtail those that are now en
joyed by the royalty, the fanatical pa
triotism that induced the thousands to
(five up their lives at Fort Arthur in a
hopeless service to their emperor the
other day will subside, and Japan, like
Chin*, will become a plaything for am
bitious peoples oho know more t!-an
they of the pleasures of being free.
Seattle has decided to name a public
park of that city "Admiral Phelps
Park," in honor of Admiral Tbomas S.
Phelps, who, as a lieutenant, at the
time of the Indian war in lOi came to
the relief of the place with the "Old
Navy" ship Decatur and turned th? tide
of the unequal contest in favor of the
beseiged settlers The decision of the
city council to honor the name of the
saviour of the founders of their place
was reached at a time when Capt
Thomas S. Phelps, Jr.. son of the pio
neer hero, wai at Seattle in command
of a ship of the "New Navy." The
honor was a deserved one, and the con
ferring of it will be as gratifying to the
many friends of "Tom" Phelps, of the
present generation, one of the best men
in the American navy, as it will be to
those who recognize the claim to Seat
tie's regard possessed by his famous
father, who recently passed away.
"Oily Tom" is the name that has
been given Thomas Tiggart, the chair
man of the democratic national com
mittee. It is said he is a twin brother
to all the tricks that are known to
American politics.
If the weather man will only make
up for the shortage on the front end of

William Kid rod, solicitor for F. A.

of residence corner of l">th and Dock
streets, Tacoma, Wash, says: "Last
-ummer for about a month I had pain
in my back so severe that I could
hardly stand it. I also had other symp
toms which convinced me that it was
ray kidneys that were the causp of the
trouble and the sccretio-s from those
organs were too frequent in action,
especially at night, disturbing my rest.
I heard people speak well of Doan's
Kidney Pills and this induced me to get
a box. Before I had finished the box
the pain in my back and other sym|>
toms disappeared. I am a poor band to
take medicine, but when I find one
which comes up to the representations
made for it like Doan's Kidney Pills do,
I am only too glad to recommend it at
every opportunity."'
