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.

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.
