JUNEAU, ALASKA, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 5, 1913
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
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
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
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
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
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.

A PIRATICAL TRUST
SUPPORTING a motion for arrest of judgment in the case of
Cash-Register Trust convicts, their lawyers presented the
familiar plea of monopoly that the Sherman law "creates
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.
IN INNOKO DISTRICT
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.
