ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7. 11112 at the postofllce at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: Q^e year, by mall $10.00 Six months, by mail 5.00 Per month, delivered 1.00 A QUESTION OF THE NATIVE AND THE BALLOT THERE are two bills before the Legislature dealing with In dian Suffrage. One of them, by Senator Millard, deprives the natives of any rights they may have in the premises unless they shall have severed their tribal relations, and taken up the white man's method of living, and unless they can read and write the English language. The other, by Representative Shoup, assuming, seemingly, tnat tne incuans now nave no npi to vote, gives those of them that have severed their tribal re lations. learned to read and write English and began to live like white men the right to prove the facts and become voters. This is a question that deserves consideration, and the desid eratum. unquestionably, is the restriction of native voting to a minimum, if, indeed, it shall be permitted at all for some years to come. Notwithstanding the really excellent progress that is being made in the education and development of the Alaska na tives there are very few of them that have anything approach ing such a conception of governmental affairs that it would make them intelligent voters, and it would be decidely unfair to those cf them that do not possess it and to those whose work is among them to make of them a football in Alaska politics. The av erage Indian of the North is beset with so many temptations already that his path is a rocky one. It would be far better to be too slow rather than too fast in extending the franchise to his race. Let us not burden our young country with the problem of an unqualified electorate. The terrible experience of the South must not be repeated in the North. The attitude of the new administration toward Alaska prob lems, as indicated by the desire to take them up and settle them along constructive lines, could not be more satisfactory to the people of this Territory. THE PATHOS OF "UNCLE JOE'S" RETIREMENT THERE is something rather pathetic about the retirement of "Uncle Joe" Cannon and the way he takes it. Notwithstand ing that he takes with him into private life world's goods and personal friendships in quantity that would make most men feel rich beyond deserts. Cannon quit Washington reluctantly. He lingered at the national capital several weeks after his official life had ceased to be. He left a theater of action from which all that he had stood for and fought valient battles for during the whole long length of his strenuous lifetime has been discard ed. He witnessed the incoming of an administration that, pro fessedly at least, stands for the common good of all rather than the benefit of its friends. He heard the acclaim of approval that greeted the summons issued by President Wilson to all the forces of humanity, and he felt the heartfelt thanks of a whole nation when the new President assured the people that he will not fail them if they will but counsel and sustain him. And, strange as it would have seemed once upon a time, the cynicism with which the veteran of the standpat brigade was wont to combat these "dreamers of Arcadian dreams" had passed away. At last he had come to realize that the "old order changeth," that the Amer ican people had in fact adopted a new standard with which to measure men and policies, and that he belongs to a generation that is passed, tie is now. apparently in sadness rather than in bitterness, retiring to a constituency of neighbors and personal friends that has repudiated him, as an official, and the things for which he has stood. Like James Buchanan, he lived on into a generation that had passed his time. The situation excites sympathy and pity for rather than rancor toward "Uncle Joe." Does the refusal of President Wilson to force the Chinese government to let American bankers in on the profits of their national loan mean that there is an early eclipse in store for "Dollar Diplomacy?" That snow on Puget Sound following so closely on the heels of the cold wave that recently swept over Alaska reminds us that March weather has always had a reputation for fickleness. Those French Cabinets are about as stable as Mexican Pres idents. Evidently "Boss" Cox mixed up in other things than politics. LAMONT WINS BIG RUBY DOG RACE RUBY. March 2.?The Ruby Derby dog race was pulled off March 1st but with very little betting or en thusiasm because of the very heavy with a very good crowd turning out trail and the poor conditions under which the race had to be run. First prize was won by Jack I^amont, the mail carrier, who made the distance of 58 miles and return in sevent hours, twelve minutes and ten seconds. He was followed closely by George Carl, of Ruby, who came in but eighteen minutes later, taking second money, while third place was captured by Mi nook, a native of Nulato. who pulled in eighteen minutes after Carl. forced Out of Business by owner of building.
