A DAY DEDICATED TO THE IRISH
THIS is St. Patrick's Day, a day that the American people
have dedicated to their Irish citizens. That the occasion
is generally celebrated throughout the nation is an appro
priate compliment to a race that has done much for the per
petuity of American institutions and for American development.
The first great movement of immigrants to the United States was
composed of the liberty-loving, virile sons of the long oppressed
Emerald Isle, and they adapted themselves to conditions in this
country as if to the manor born. They found here conditions
that gave the great talents of their race opportunity to expand,
and they recognized it on the instant of landing. It is not
strange, therefore, that they became patriotic Americans, from
the beginning and at once identified themselves with our indus
tries. our transportation companies, our mines, our agriculture
and our politics. Nor is it strange that their buoyant spirit and
aggressive patriotism has become ind.isolubly identified with our
national life and our history. Before the middle of the last cen
tury it became as a bv-word that every Irish baby, no matter
where born, came into the world shouting for the Stars and
Stripes, and regarded his early childhood days as time spent in
growing large enough to come to America and take up his duties
as an American citizen. The result has been that today there
are more than five times as many Irish and descendants of Irish
in the United States as there are in Ireland.
The Irish have enriched the American people at least as
greatly as has any other race. Their genius has shown particu
larly brilliantly in all the learned professions and in the great
works of construction that have caused the country to develop
at a pace unparalleled in the history of the world. Our literature
is permiated with a wit and humor that came to us through the
Irish and our politics have been nearer dominated by those having
Hibernian blood in their veins than by any other element of our
population.
The Irish are entitled to all the consideration the race gets
out of the annual St. Patrick's Day celebration.
The dispatches say thousands of women will quit Massa
chusetts and go to reside in some commonwealth that will give
them equal suffrage if that State does not act quickly. Wonder
if Representative Shoup hadn't heard of the Bay State situation,
and isn't seeking to increase Alaska's population.
ALL ABOUT A NAME
THE question of the name by which the mining district in
the Teslin country, that is attracting the attention of the
people of the Northwest, shall be known is just now agitat
ing newspaper writers. This always has been perplexing problem
after the discovery of a new strike, and it is particularly so in the
instance of the latest strike. The "Teslin country" covers too
much area to be sufficiently specific. Teslin Lake and Teslin
River drain a very large portion of Northern British Columbia
and Southern Yukon Territory, and the name is too general to
suit the situation that confronts those writing about the*stam
pede that is now fairly under way.
The new strike was made on Silver Creek, a tributary of Jen
nings River, which flows into Lake Teslin. It is said, however,
that there is pay dirt on many of the other tributaries of Jen
nings River, so it would not be fair to limit the country to the
"Silver Creek" district. All things considered the "Jennings
River District" seems to be the fairest designation of the gold
bearing country that is now serving as a lodestone to the pros
pectors of the country.
Those British and Washington hoodlums that are interfer
ing with legitimate activities of the suffragettes are doing more
for the cause of woman suffrage than the over-spectular suf
fragettes themselves.
LaFollette has been welcomed at the White House after
three years of ostracism. What is that old saw about "little
straws, etc?"
FORMER PROSECUTOR
CONDEMNS SYSTEM
NEW YORK. Marsh 15.?"I do not
think that Becker would be in the
death cell at Sing Sing today if he had
been subject to proper discipline." Eu
gene A. Philbin, former District-At
torney for this county and now regent
of the University of the State of New
York, declared yesterday to the Wag
ner committee on remedial police leg
islation.
"I firmly believe," Mr. Philbin con
tinued, "that if we had a proper ad
ministration and discipline of the po
lice force the Becker case would never
have occurred and that today we
would not have the disorder that does
exist notwithstanding the earnest ef
forts that Mr. Waldo is making, ac
cording to his understanding, In the
way of gunmen, in the way of shoot
ing. in the way of bombs that are being
exploded in various places and all
that.
"I don't think these conditions would
exist if we had such a discipline as I
mean?not merely a discipline in the
way of punishment but a discipline
that would be exercised almost as a
man exercises discipline over his chil
dren."
