SUBSCRIPTION RATES: $10.00 Q?e year, by tnail 5.00 Six mouths, by mail 1.00 rer month, delivered JUNEAU. ALASKA. FRIDAY, MARCH 7, 1913 THE HOPE OF THE PEOPLE AND THE CAUSE THE American people are expecting more from President \\ il son than they have looked for from any chief executive at the beginning of his term of office in a generation. He comes into authority with a commission direct from the masses to set a greatly disturbed house in order. No man realizes this more clearly than does the new President himself. His sponsors in the campaigns for the nomination and election promised much from him. and the people have been educated to expect per formance. These expectations have been so vividly set forth that already doubting Thomases have appeared in many sections of the country, and the dispatches tell us that there are fearsome ones in Lon don editorial offices that are skeptical about the capacity of the official to accomplish as effectively as the candidate promised. Put in spite of doubters and skeptics there is that in the record of Woodrow Wilson which causes the people to continue expecting, with hope of fulfillment, that self-government will reach nearer the mark of perfection in the Nation during the administration that has just begun than it has reached in this country in many moons The inspiring record that has cre ated this confidence is not one that lies in a dim and intangible past, but it is one that continued up to almost the very day of his inauguration as President. The work accomplished in the last thirty days of Governor Wilson's tenure of office as the head of New Jersey's State gov ernment has demonstrated that his is not a head that can be turned by the glamor of high position and tends to increase con fidence and hope that everywhere prevails. Speaking of these last days of Governor Wilson in New Jer sey. the New York World says: "On the surface it appears to have taken only a month to ;v\ i/.e the odious corporation laws of New Jersey. The V - wt rt introduced on the 2th of January. By the sig n;r c t :ie liovernor they became laws one month later. "Yet this reform has been in progress for more than a gen eration. First of all came popular recognition of the outrageous system by means of which crafty lawyers had made the State a safe harbor for commercial and industrial pirates. Then came agitation, criticism, accusation. Then came Democratic triumph. Then cam* Woodrow Wilson. Then came a Legislature instruct ed to co-operate with Woodrow Wilson. "To transfer New Jersey from the head of the list of trust ridden States to the top of the column of the most progressive States would have been considered not long ago a stupendous undertaking, but in point of fact it was easy. It was easy be cause the people mow#. It was easy because they had right leadership and recognized it. It was easy because they elected to office men pledged to public instead of private service. "The processes by which the State which gives to the Re public its President-elect has overcome thirty years of wrong and oppression in thirty days cannot fail to be of interest to the Nation." And this work was accomplished after Governor Wilson had been made President Wilson by an overwhelming vote of his countrymen and at a time when his supporters in all sections of the Nation were clamoring for his presence at celebrations and jollification meetings in his honor. The signs of the times cer tainly encourage a buoyancy of the spirit. Edgar E. Clark, the new chairman of the Interstate Com merce Commission, is one of the oldest members, in point of ser vice. on that commission. It is now reported that he will have to give way before long to Louis D. Brandies, the famous Massa chusetts lawyer and economic reformer. The secession of the State of Sonora from Mexico will cause many of the gray-haired pioneers of the Southwest, who com plained bitterly because the territory embraced in that State and Lower California was not retained by the United States in the settlement of the Mexican war, to join the "I-told-you-so" class. GOVERNOR LISTER AND HIS LEGISLATURE THE State of Washington is just now stirred up over the war that is waging between the Democratic Governor, Ernest Lister, and the Republican Legislature. Governor Lister has vetoed bills appropriating $1,800,000 for expenditure on seven State highways and $500,000 for rebuilding the State nor mal school at Cheney, Spokane County, which burned a year or more ago, and for the maintenance of the same. The State has two other normal schools, one located at Ellensburg, in Eastern Washington, and the other at Bellingham, Western Washing ton. In vetoing the bills Governor Lister explained that he was controlled by his promise to the voters of the State that the ex penditures would be kept within the income. In addition, he thinks the necessary work on the State highways can be per formed at less expense than the amount provided in the appro priation bill and that the State can get along very well with two well-equipped normal schools. Governor Lister also has given out a statement to the peo ple in which he calls attention to the failure of the Legislature to pass any of the bills recommended by him for the simplifi cation and economization of the operating machinery of the State. This failure, he says, made it necessary for him to seek elsewhere for a method of cutting down expenses. While there is some difference of opinion as to the merits of the vetoed bills, there is no place in the State for anything but praise for Washington's clean, and able young Governor for his courageous determination to fulfill his campaign promises to the taxpayers. 11111111111i1111111111111111111111II Add to the Comfort and Charm of Your Home !!

GORHAM CO. | j Dawson has just compromised a long rate contest with the corporation that supplies the municipality and its citizens with light. The company has made a substantial cut in prices, but the reduction was made only after the Government was seriously considering a public-owned lighting system. Everyone that kno\ Frank Lane, the new Secretary of the Interior, expected that he would declare himself on Alaska de velopment in the frank manner in which he did. In the meantime the representatives of the people of Alaska in the Senate and i House of Representatives are setting themselves about the task of giving him the benefit of their views on Alaska matters. j POETRY AND POLITICS 1 Just as the grass begins to shoot and the birds twitter the first tw't of spring, the voice of the spring politician is heard. Who will be mayor, and who will run for councilmcn, are ques tions! Soon the answer must be found, so everybody should register at the city clerk's office.?Douglas News. DOUGLAS SPRUCING UP Marshal Shafer and his assistants gave the streets a much needed bath the other day. It would indeed be a nice thing if the dose could be repeat ed at least once each week during the spring and summer. It would cost a bit of money, but we think it would be j well spent. And then, really, it is about time Douglas put on a little more airs than she has in the past.? Douglas News.

BUSY DAYS ON THE DAWSON TRAIL The busy season In overland trail travel is at hand, says the Dawson News. The White Pass has just re ceived forty new horses from the out side. and has them at work along the line, largely on the south end, and is expecting twenty more. These horses are the best for general stage purposes that can be procured. Form erly the White Pass got most of its horses i n Eastern Oregon and Eastern Washington, where the type of animal desired is raised extensive ly. Dr. Coutts was the buyer for years. This year another man was entrusted with the purchasing. Each season 50 or more horses are brought in by the company to replenish the supply. Every year some are dis qualified for the fast work, and grad ually go into other services. Three stages a week are now expect ed over the White Pass trail, and a lit tle later four and five may come. The increased business is due to the spring shipments of perishable and other freight, and the return of many Yu koners who have been south on a va cation of a few months. From now on the incoming travel will be good un til the middle of April, and will be particularly brisk in March. NOTICE TO SUBSCRIBERS.
