A SIDE-LIGHT ON THE ATTITUDE OF SECRETARY LANE
THE attitude of Franklin K. Lane, while he was yet a member
of the Interstate Commerce Commission, toward Alaska rail
roads encourage those Alaskans interested in railroad con
struction in the Territory to believe that he will be friendly to
the development of an adequate transportation system in the
North. To a delegation of Alaskans that called upon him two
weeks before his appointment as Secretary of the Interior Mr.
Lane, after securing all the information he could from them about
transportation conditions in Alaska, is said to have remarked:
"It is a sham that the railroads in Alaska are taxed. I
think they deserve to be subsidized."
' > a -j? a.
There is no question Out tnat tne development ox me inter
ior of Alaska along comprehensive lines requires, as a condi
tion precedent, the construction of a railroad system that will
reach all points of the Territory. The fact that all railroad
building has been discontinued is ample proof that there is no
profit in railroad operation under conditions as they exist. If
we are to get more railroads they must be built by the gov
ernment or they must receive encouragement rather than tax
ation by it. Xo system of interior transportation, probably, will
ever completely meet the requirements until there is some of
both. The government is being urged to build the great trunk
lines, and probably that will be done. When they shall have
been constructed, feeders will have to be provided, and every
reasonable inducement should be offered to encourage their con
struction.
It is a satisfaction to know that the man at the head of the
Interior Department realizes the immensity of the problem that
the people of Alaska and the federal government, that is seeking
to aid and encourage the development of this Territory, are up
against in the matter of providing the transportation facilities
that are absolutely essential to Alaskan progress.
Adrianople has fallen. The last stronghold outside of Con
stantinople and the little peninsula upon which that ancient city
stands has been wrested from the Turks. It must now be peace
or the banishment of Turkey from Europe. The allies are left
free to concentrate their attack on the Turkish capital. The re
sult will probably be peace within a very few days.
ANOTHER, AND GREATER CALAMITY
THE people of the country had hardly adjusted themselves to
the shock resulting from the terrible disaster that had be
fallen Omaha, when they were overwhelmed by the greater
calamity that has been visited by an inscrutible Providence upon
the people of Ohio and Indiana. While the figures thus far ob
tainable have been based upon the fragmentary and discon
nected reports newspapers have been able to get over delapitated
and demoralized telegraph and telephone systems, and are prob
ably greatly exaggerated, yet the devastated district is so wide
spread that there is no doubt that one of the greatest disasters
that ever has befallen the Nation has taken place. And, worst
of all, the suffering has but just commenced. Floods do not con
fine their machinations to restricted districts. They cover areas
so great that concentration in relief work is a physical impossi
bility. No matter what may be the diligence of the State and
National governments, there will be thousands of the distressed
that will have to work out their own salvation without the aid
of an assisting hand. For years poverty and, in many instances,
no doubt, want will haunt doors that have never been troubled
by the wolf.
It is a terrible catastrophe and one that fully justifies the
strenuous efforts toward relief that are being put forth by the
National and State governments.
While the early reports from the flooded districts of the East
probably exaggerate the loss of life, they probably underesti
mate the loss of property, and convey an inadequate idea of the
commercial disaster that has come to the Nation.
THE ELECTION OF COL. LEWIS
THE election of Col. James Hamilton Lewis as United States
Senator from the great State of Illinois brings pleasure tc
a host of friends of the former Seattle lawyer, politician anc
orator on the Pacific Coast, and honors one of the most unique
characters on the continent. Col. Lewis came to Seattle as a bo>
from Georgia in the middle eighties. Although he had managec
to get an education at the University of Virginia, and to ac
quire a learning and develop oratorical abilities far beyond his
years, he had no money. So he began life as a longshoreman
Members of the Southern colony in the Puget Sound metropo
lis "discovered" him, and he was appointed to a position in th<
office of the clerk of the court. While there, he gave his ser
vices to lawyers engaged in the trial of important cases, anc
soon attracted the attention of bench, bar and?more importan
to Lewis?populace. In a few years the people of Washingtoi
Territory discovered that one of the Nation's greatest orator:
was a fellow citizen. He went up like a rocket, but unlike th<
rocket he remained in the heavens to glow as the refulgent orl
of day and be seen of a Nation. He served the people of hi:
adopted commonwealth in the Territorial legislature, J>nd wa:
sent by them to Congress. Defeated for re-election he went t<
Chicago, where he served four years as corporation counsel
and added to his reputation as an orator and lawyer.
Col. Lewis has accumulated a modest fortune, in the prac
tice of his profession, and now he goes to the United States Sen
ate, where he will further attract the attention of his country
men. And he is yet a young man, as public men are measured
having just passed his fiftieth birthday.

TWO JUNEAU MEN
BELIEVED TO BE LOST
Wm. Doughtery and Robert Suace,
of Juneau, aged 60 and 26 respectively,
are believed to have been lost some
where between Wrangell and the Taku
is the report o fMessrs. Tyers, Harris
and Boots, of the gasboat Klooch. The
crew of the Klooch. recently down
from Juneau to nsn in waters uuuruj
to Wrangell, helped the pair, who were
making the trip in a 22-foot sealing
boat, across the Taku and loaned them
a skiff to use the mainder of the
journey. The Klooch has been in
twice to see if Dougherty and Suace
had arrived here and to get the skiff,
but they have not made port as yet,
and as the boats came across the Taku
about a month ago, the crew of the
Klooch fear the pair may have been
caught in a storm and wrecked. The
sealing boat was equipped with a
motor and was giving trouble when
they crossed the windy Taku.?Wrang
