J. F. A. STRONG ] Telephone No. 3-7-4 ? Entered as second-clans matter November 7, 1912 at the postoflice at Ju- * neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1879.

MORE OF THE SEATTLE CONTEST ONE of the principal features of the recent municipal election in Seattlie was overlooked in the press dispatches from the Puget Sound metropolis. That was the defeat of the Grif fiths' police bill. As a matter of fact, the tight over this law was the big issue of the campaign. Councilman Austin E. Griffiths - hail secured the passage through the city council of a bill that cur- ? tailed the powers of the police in making arrests. It was vetoed J< by Mayor George F. Cotterill, and passed by the council over the < . veto. The supporters of the mayor secured the necessary signa-| tures. and the bill was submitted to the people under the charter provision giving the voters the right of the referendum. Those favoring the adoption of the bill contended that the po lice had employed measures in enforcing the laws that were too drastic and deprived citizens of personal rights. It was alleged that houses were broken into in violation of the constitution, and no longer was the old axiom that a "man's home is his castle" a rule of action. The Griffiths' bill made it a crime for a policeman to make unlawful arrests or entrances to buildings upon suspicion that crime would be uncovered by the action. The op ponents of the measure contended that the placing of criminal re sponsibility upon the police for making what they 'termed "mis takes" in making arrests, etc.. would so intimidate the custodians of peace and good order that the police would naturally become inethcient. and that crime of all kinds would run riot in the city. The line-up soon developed into a contest between those that had favored the election of Mayor George F. Cotterill a year ago arid those that had supported the former deposed Mayor Hiram C. Gill. It was the same unremittant war. now more than two de cades old. between the supporters of "good government" and the "liberal element." breaking out in a new place. I The result was a victory for Mayor Cotterill. The Griffiths' bill was defeated by a close vote, but Councilman Griffiths was elected by a narrow margin to succeed himself on the council. Thomas A. Parish, who lead the poll of the councilmanic candi dates. strongly opposed the Griffiths' bill. He had been a candi date for mayor a year ago. but was eliminated in the primaries. Subsequently he supported Mayor Cotterill notwithstanding that he is a leading Republican and the Mayor one of the most promi nent Democrats of the Evergreen State. The war between police and burglars in Tacoma and San Francisco is becoming more deadly than the common run of Span ish American rebellions. If one were to judge from results he would say that the un lawful procedure of the militant suffragettes of Great Britain and the spectacular performances of the Atlantic seaboard suffra gettes of this continent are not so helpful of the cause they pro fess to serve as has been the dignified and lady-like conduct of the Western women. Women now vote in every Pacific Coast State, and in nearly all the Rocky Mountain commonwealths, while there is but one State east of the Mississippi river where equal suffrage prevails, and that State is called Western by those of the East. Those Sonora "constitutional rebels" are going about the business of separating Northern from Southern Mexico as if they intended to succeed. The activity of the Great Northern Steamship Company in preparing for the trade that will follow the completion of the Pa nama canal is just a straw that indicates the beneficient results that will come to the Pacific Coast from that great work. Lower transportation charges mean more trade and more trade always mean more profits. Whatever might be said of the good taste or lack of good taste in Delegate Wickersham's using the time of the joint ses- ! sion of the Legislature last night in attacking members of the body none will question the wisdom of the vote that permitted the , Delegate to Congress from proceeding with his address to the end. SULZER'S NAME CONTROLS SENTIMENTS NEW YORK. March 10. ? A Wall j street Reform bill, presented in the! Legislature, was regarded with suspic- i ion by the real opponents of stock; gambling, until it was explained that the measure came direct from Gov. Sul/er. The tlrst belief provoked by the introduction of the measure was, that the inspiration for it came from ? those who hope to prevent any genu-! ine Stock Exchange reform by the Leg islature this session. When it became . known that Gov. Sulzer favors the bill, sentiment toward it changed immed iately.

Georgeson. of the Depart ment of Agriculture, left on the Al Ki for the South. While in the States he will secure summer pasturage for the government cattle that were re moved from Kodiak island to Toppen ish. Washington, last fall. The great fall of ashes from the Mt. Katmai vol cano last year destroyed the forage on the island, and it was found neces sary to remove the Galway herd, that had been kept there several years, from the territory last year. They will not return North until next year. Prof. Georgeson arrived in Juneau Saturday from Sitka on the Georgia. He will return North next summer.
