GOV. SULZER AND MURPHY
THE break between Gov. William Sulzer. of New York, and
Leader Charles F. Murphy, of Tammany, was inevitable. Sul
zer is and always has been in close touch with the progres
sive element of the people. The machine methods of the Tam
many chieftain are abhorrent to those from whom New York's
new governor has received his inspiration, and when the latter
found Murphy's henchmen and Murphy's methods permeating
all the departments and bureaus of the State it is no surprise to
those who know him that a house-cleaning should begin. That it
did begin so early in his administration augurs well for the con
tinued success of the governor and of progressive Democracy in
ihe Empire State.
The people of New York State are not different from those
of other States. Give them a leader that will direct their efforts
and they will go just as far toward making their State pro
gressive as the people of New Jersey, New Hampshire and other
Eastern States have gone.
Gov. Sulzer is not only doing well for his State, but he is
doing good politics. Former Gov. John A. Dix's fate should dem
onstrate this fact to the most obtuse. He had the same oppor
tunity that came to Gov. Sulzer. but he did not grasp it. He
turned the State over to Murphy, and the result was that a year
after his election, through a tremendous Democratic landslide,
the Republicans carried the legislative election by a majority
more emphatic than any they had received in many years. It
took a Baltimore convention, a Woodrow Wilson and a resultant
landslide again to give the Democrats'an opportunity to do what
Gov. Dix had not done. Fortunately for the party and for the
State of New York a Sulzer was carried into the governor's
chair by the second victory of his party, and for the first time
since Cleveland and Hill Tammany's boss has been driven out of
the capital, and told that henceforth he must confine his activ
ities. if. indeed, he shall be permitted to remain active at all, to
the affairs below Harlem. The humiliation of the Democratic
party in New York dates from the ascendency of Tammany in
it. It ceased to be a force for good when the Tammany leaders
assumed the directing hand in its affairs, and the people would
have none of it.
? ' ' ? * Li. -1 A L..
The situation that is oeing urougru awui uj uuv. ou^a
is even more hopeful than that of the days of Cleveland and
Hill, for Gov. Sulzer has powerful support in the Tammany or
ganization itself in addition to a large following in the metropo
lis that is his because those that compose it know him and be
lieve in him. There are thousands of young men?educated men
of standing in the professional callings and the business world
?members of the Tammany organization who are thoroughly
progressive and who approved of the drubbing Bryan gave Mur
phy at Baltimore. All these men require as an inducement to
assert themselves is a leader such as Gov. Sulzer is proving him
self to be. and it is a good guess that within another two years
Murphy will be making the fight of his busy lifetime to retain]
the leadership of Tammany and that he will have no time to med
dle in bigger politics at all.
In the meantime, the whole country is profiting. New York
is so emphatically the hub of this continent that its local af
fairs are matters of public interest everywhere, and a good ex
ample there is worth much throughout the Nation. Let the
good work go on. The prayers of all supporters of good govern
ment are with Gov. Sulzer.
The people of Alaska must not think that because the Alas
ka Legislature is holding short sessions and has passed no bills
that its members are not working or that the first session will
be a do-nothing meeting. The members of the legislature are
giving serious attention to the business that brought them to
the capital, and The Empire is confident that they will work
out solutions for most of their problems before departing for their
homes. They are men of ability and all of them thorough Alas
kans. The fact that they are going slow and giving much time
to deliberation and consultation speaks in favor of their capacity
rather than against them. ?
SEPARATION A PROBABLE SOLUTION
IT NEED create no great surprise if the final solution of the dif
ficulties in harassed Mexico shall be dismemberment. Except
in the cases of Mexico and Brazil it has been impossible,
seemingly, for any great number of the Spanish Americans or
any great area of the territory populated by them to continue
long as one nation. Distrust and suspicion combined with am
bition and intrigue are natural traits of this adventuresome peo
ple, and those are not the traits that count for co-operation and
stability. The South American Spaniards had hardly deprived
the mother country of its authority in the Western continent be
fore they fell to quarreling among themselves over the powers
of government, and a dozen small nations were born. The result
has been that in some of them, in most instances those of small
est area, there has been peace for comparatively long periods of
time. Factional differences are being developed in Mexico that
will make it more and more difficult again to unite the several
States of the republic on a basis that will be sufficiently satis
factory to all. It would have been better, probably, for the Mex
ican people if the American boundary had been established
farther south a half century ago.
By a vote of twenty-nine to nine the British Columbia Leg
islature defeated woman suffrage. Dr. Young, member from At
lin and Minister of Education in the Cabinet of Premier Richard
McBride, supported the measure.
The people of Alaska will follow the work of Gov. Sulzer
in New York with greater interest, probably, than those of any
other section of the country outside of his own State, because he
is almost an Alaskan himself. He has spent much of his time in
this territory, has invested largely of his money here, and has
been our best friend at Washington and in the East. His suc
cesses are those of one of our own people. More power to him.
President Wilson will not permit anything .to be done that
will subject his administration to the charge of nepotism. The
Democratics of Washington and Oregon have urged the appoint
ment of Capt. A. M. Wilson as commissioner to the Philippines.
"Capt. Wilson is a cousin of mine," the President is represented
as having said, " and that makes it absolutely impossible for
me to consider his application for appointment. I shall feel
barred from appointing any member of my own family to office."
The impression prevails in Washington that in contests for
place from the Wilson administration original progressive Dem
ocrats will have all the best of the argument to start with. It is
believed by newspaper correspondents at the National Capital
that the applicants for positions from the State of Washington,
having the endorsement of the original Wilson men, will be
the lucky ones.

LIKES HER NAME
NEW YORK, March 13?When Miss
Celia Cohen, of Dorchester, Con., was
twenty-five she determined that she
would not marry anyone if it involved
her changing her name. Her mother's
maiden name was Cohen, and both of
her grandmothers were Cohens before
their marriage. Her sister married a
Cohen. She turned down two flatter
ing proposals because the would-be
grooms were not Cohens. A short
time ago a Dorchester young man,
named Cohen, pressed his love suit.
"His name was Cohen," said Miss
Cohen, "and I allowed him to pay some
attention to me." The engagement
of Miss Cohen was announced at a
party last night when it was discov
ered that her fiance's mother's maiden
name was Cohen. All those at the
engagement party were Cohens.
