ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7, 1912 at the postofflce at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: Oce year, by mail $10.00 Six months, by mail 6.00 Per month, delivered 100 JUNEAU, ALASKA, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 5, 1913 PRESIDENT WILSON. WOODROVV WILSON is now President of the United States. His Cabinet has been selected. The Congress is Democrat ic in both branches. The new Administration begins its course under favorable auspices. It has the endorsement of the people and much is expected of it. The Democratic party has been again taken on trust after sixteen years spent in the wilder ness. Its triumph at the polls was the result of the Republican party's indifference to the demands of the people. Drunk with long-continued power its leaders became a law unto themselves. They disregarded the changing conditions of the times in their lust for power. They became bourbons through the process of devolution. They ceased to learn and they could not forget the long, fat years of continuous supremacy. Detruncation followed with the birth of the Progressive party, and today the historic Republican party, once so firmly entrenched, ranks next to the Socialist. In these facts the Democracy should learn its lesson. Bour bonism is no longer a factor in national politics. It long since was proved to be a fungus growth on the body politic. Yet it is not quite dead, as witnesses the Republican debacle. It may also be found in splotches here and there within the Democratic party, though shorn of its former prestige and influence. It was scourged at Baltimore, but though bruised it is not entirely | broken. And it may be expected to show its head now and then, and perhaps Its teeth, notwithstanding the clear and positive dec larations of the Democratic national platform, and the avowed progressive policies as enunciated by President Wilson. But his Administration will undoubtedly meet troubled waters. The party of which he is now the national leader has promised much and the people who entrusted it with power are going to de mand the redemption of every pledge, as they should. The tar iff must be revised, not in the interests of its beneficiaries, but in the interest of the great mass of consumers. There are many Democratic tariff beneficiaries as well as Republican and Pro gressive: and when their sacred idol is threatened they are usual ly found united in the common cause of plunder. These are party men for profit only: to them patriotism and pelf are synono mous. A Democratic administration must curb them by tariff reductions, and the complete control of trusts and combinations of which the high-protective tariff has been the wet-nurse. These, we conceive, to be the two most important problems the right solution of which confronts President Wilson and his party. But there are many others of vital importance to the country, and if they be met and solved courageously and honestly the Demo cratic party will be assured of a long continuance of power. But if the contrary course is pursued the overthrow of the party will be complete four years hence, and it may not again expect to re ceive the confidence of the people, but another will take its place. An administration marked with wisdom, and the keenest knowledge and appreciation of the country's needs may be ex pected from President Wilson. He has courage; he has ability of a high order: he is a patriot of a fine type and behind him he has the best wishes of the American people, and we are con fident that he will not be found wanting, and that his adminis tration will be such as will make progressive history for the na tion. PRESIDENT WILSON'S CABINET. THERE are at least two national figures in President Wil son's official family, and a number of others who are well up to the front. Of course William Jennings Bryan is the premier, and perhaps next to him in the public eye is Frank lin K. Lane, of California, Secretary of the Interior. For a num ber of years Mr. Lane has been a member of the Interstate Com merce Commission, and his work there has given him a national reputation. Some twenty-five years ago he was a hard-working newspaper man in Tacoma. Postmaster-General Burleson, of Texas, has served in Con gress for many years, and is a man of commanding ability. William G. McAdoo, of New York, may be also said to be a man of national reputation. He originated the idea of build ing railroad tunnels under the Hudson river, and carried it to successful completion, and at the same time he showed himself to be a financial genius. He came out of the South a young and unknown man, and by the sheer force of genius achieved mon umental successwithin a few brief years. James C. McReynolds, the Attorney-General, comes from Tennessee, and he served as an assistant attorney-general for a short time, under Attorney-General Bonaparte, in President Roosevelt's administration. The new Secretary of Commerce, William C. Redfield, is a manufacturer of Brooklyn, N. Y. He is an ardent tariff re former and is besides a tariff expert. He was a member of the Sixty-second Congress. Josephus Daniels, of North Carolina, who has been selected for the Navy portfolio, is a newspaper publisher and editor of that State, and this is his first appearance in national affairs; he is a cultured man of wide experience, however. Lindley M. Garrison, of New Jersey, Secretary of War is unknown to national fame, but he has been closely identified with President Wilson in his fight for the regeneration of New Jersey. W. B. Wilson, Secretary of Labor, has been a member of Congress from the Fifteenth Pennsylvania district, for a num ber of years, and has been closely identified with the labor cause. Of the new Secretary of Agriculture, David F. Houston, of Missouri, The Empire knows nothing. He is not found in "Who's Who." but he will no doubt prove acceptable successor to "Tama Jim" Wilson, who has presided over the Agricultural Depart ment for sixteen years.

Are bribery, false pretense, intimidation, slander, discrim ination, forestalling and monopoly new crimes? It was proved against the Cash-Register Trust that it bribed the employees of competitors and of railroad and telegraph companies that it maintained fraudulent "competition;" that by threats and libel lous attacks upon the credit of its true competitors it brought them to ruin; that it kept a "graveyard" exhibit of competitive machines which it had put out of business, always open to the inspection of inventors and investors who comtemplate compe tition; that is missused the patent laws in order to harass its rivals; that when competitors would not close out their enter prises at its order it destroyed them by cutting prices below cost, and that all of these acts were the result of a conspiracy, deliberate and long-continued In twenty years the trust broke up 150 competing manu- j facturers and established its monopoly so securely that it now controls more than 95 per cent of the business. 'Whether we ex amine the offenses above named in detail or take them all to-; gether as showing intent to monopolize an industry, the crimes involved at every stage, and the great central crime to which ; they all lead, are not new crimes but old crimes, as old, indeed, as the common law. CRIPPLE CREEK, IN INNOKO DISTRICT i Fred Anderson, a former resident of Iditarod. has written a letter from ' Cripple, the new camp on the Innoko, | telling of the progress which has been made there during the past month or more. The letter, which was written to Anderson's partner, savs that in the bottom of a shaft recently sunk on Cripple creek, the sum of $14 was cleaned up. and that much of the gold was of large size, some of the pieces weighing sixty cents. Anderson claims that a real pay streak has been uncovered on Colo rado creek, in the same region. The ground is shallow, and the pay thus far found averages from two to three cents to the pan. which is a good thing, considering the ease with which the ground can be worked. On Cripple creek the pay had been located in three places at the time the letter was written, and Anderson stated that they were expecting to find more pay soon. Those who know Anderson, say that what he says can be relied upon, and the good report has aroused consider able interest at Iditarod and the near vicinity, though it is doubtful if any Iditaroders will leave for the new camp on the strength of the news con tained in the letter. SCOTT FOUND PLANT LIFE AT THE POLE CHRISTCHURCH, N. Z., March 5.? According to information given out by Commander Evans, of the Terra Nova. Lieutenant Scott found at the South Pole many plant fossils which are of a variety grown in temperate climates. From their nature and from other signs which he found the famous ex plorer was of the opinion that at some time the land of South America and Australia extended clear to the Ant arctic regions. At several places they were annoyed by the gaseous fumes that came from 1! THE Underwood TYPEWRITER 'The machine you will eventually buy' R. C.
