DIRECT ELECTION OF SENATORS IS ACCOMPLISHED
IT IS an old saying that "a new broom sweeps clean," and that
might be the explanation of the rapidity with which Demo-1
cratic State legislatures have acted upon the constitutional
amendment providing for the the election of United States Sena
tors by direct vote of the people. Anyhow, the fact is this
amendment has been adopted with almost unprecedented quick
ness. It was proposed by the Democratic Congress less than a
year ago. and it will now become the law of the land as soon as
it shall have been proclaimed by President Wilson. The Dem
ocratic legislatures, following the platform promises of the party
to the letter, have ratified it in such quick succession that it has
puzzled the newspaper writers to keeep up with the procession.
Less than a month ago they were predicting that it would prob
ably not become effective until after the 1914 elections. The
last Senatorial dead-lock has taken place. Senators hereafter:
willl be elected by the people directly, and campaigns will have)
to be made for popular support on issues that concern the whole
people as candidates for the House of Representatives and Gov
ernorships are compelled to make them. The result will bring
the United States Senate into closer touch with the people and
make it more responsive to public sentiment than it has been
heretofore. It is a long step forward in popular government;
in this country.
When the President proclaims the new amendment it will
become the 17th amendment to the Constitution, and the sec
ond to be adopted since the ratification of the 15th amendment,
conferring the right of suffrage upon the Negroes in 1870. The
16th amendment was proclaimed by former President Taft, and
provided for an income tax.
President Wilson has promised a whole evening to Alas
ka. That is particularly refreshing when we consider that some
thing usually happens when Mr. Wilson devotes his personal at
tention to it. His evenings with problems of interest are not
social affairs.
UNDERWOOD WRITES FOR LESLIE'S
J J. UNDERWOOD, a pioneer newspaper man of Nome, who
? has been all over the Northern territory, and whose book,
"Alaska, an Empire in the Making," willl soon come from
the presses of an Eastern publishing house, has been engaged by
Leslie's Weekly to write a series of articles on Alaska. Mr.
Underwood has handled Alaska matters on the Seattle Times for
several years. Underwood's particular penchant is riddling the
conservation policies of Pinchot, and we can expect something
rare and racy in his articles for Leslie's. Their appearance will
be looked for with interest.
THE RELATION OF THE PRESIDENCY TO CONGRESS
PRESIDENT WILSON has taken the larger view of the du
ties of the Presidency. He has taken the position that the
constitutional provisions that make it the duty of the Presi
dent to advise Congress from time to time as to what he thinks
it should do and to sign or veto bills as he sees his duty place
responsibility upon the President for legislation as well as upon
Congress, and that it, therefore, becomes his duty to confer with
and assist members of the Senate and House of Representatives
in the preparation of legislation. To make that point clear he
appeared before Congress and read his message to it personally,
and he has announced that he will spend a considerable portion
of his time whenever there are things of importance doing in
Congress in his office at the capitol, where he will consult with
any Senator or Representative that desires to confer with him.
President Taft followed the other policy, particularly in the
first part of his administration. He assumed that the legislative
and executive branches of the government are entirely separate,
and he did not regard himself as a part of the legislative branch.
The result was that the Payr \ldrich tariff monstrosity was
made before his eyes, and grew big enough to destroy his ad
ministration and his parly before he attempted to interfere. Had
President Taft taken the same view of the duties of the Presi
dency that President Wilson has taken, the political history of
the last four years might have been materially different.
President Wilson has determined to make his administration
one of accomplishment, and he has set about the work in the
manner that he and other capable Governors have found so ef
fective in the regeneration of State governments. He has, in
fact, taken the leadership of his party and assumed responsi
bility to see that it performs in accordance with its promises.
The Greek people have accepted their new King Constantine
as the fulfillment of prophecies that are 500 years old in their
kingdom. Since the death of the last Constantine, in 1453, that
terminated the Byzantine rulers, it has been a saying in Greece
that in good time there would come out of Greece another Con
stantine that would establish his court at Constantinople. It
is said that it is confidently expected in Greece that the new
King will re-establish the old Macedonian Empire and have its
capital at Constantinople?ancient Byzantine.
The sympathy of the average citizen is with California in
the effort to adopt legislation that will prevent the establish
ment within her borders of alien farming communities. The
matter, in-so-far as American internal affairs are concerned,
is one over which the State has complete jurisdiction, and the
disposition of Japan to interfere with the local affairs of West
em States is becoming tiresome.

HARD FIGHT FOR
MARYLAND SENATOR
BALTIMORE, Apr! 1 S.?W. Cabell
Bruce, who was one of the lenders
among the original Wilson men of
Maryland and worked In season and
out to bring about his nomination for
president, announced his candidacy to
the senate before the legislature to
succeed Senator VV. I'. Jackson, w ho
was appointed to succed the late
Senator Isador Rayner. He will be
opposed by Blair Lee, a member of
the ramous Virginia family of that
name. Lee is the Democratic leader
in the state .senate and competed
with Young Gorman for the Demo
cratic nomination for governor last
year. Lee, also, is a progressive Dem- j
ocrat.. Both Bruce and Lee have |
sought to secure the influence of
President Wilson, but the president j
has announced that he will take no j
part in the contest.
It is said that the president has ex
pressed the hope that Marbury will
be successful in defeating Senator j
John Walter Smith for the seat now
occupied by the latter.
