THE FISHERIES QUESTION
WHILE the antifish trap bill has been practically defeated,
good will result from its introduction in the Alaska Leg
islature and the hearings that were held by the joint Sen
ate and House committees when it was being considered. The
members of the Legislature and the people generally possess a
lot of information that thy did not have on the second greatest
industry of the North. They are far better prepared to deal
vi'h fisheries questions than they were six weeks ago.
While the opponents of the fish trap were not successful in
convincing the members of the Legislature or ihe people that
the fish traps are ruinous per se to the iishing industry, it was
disclosed at the hearings that something must be done to pre
vent the depletion of the Alaska salmon to the point thai the
annual pack becomes so small that there will be profit to neither
fishermen nor packers.
The light of the great mass of testimony makes considera
tion of what should be done an easier task than it looked to be in
the beginning. Effective means of permitting more salmon to reach
the spawning grounds in the streams and. lakes must be devised
and strictly enforced, and there must be hatcheries, scie: titicallv
operated. This much is conceded by both fishermen and cannery
men.
There is a genuine regret among Americans because of
the near departure of James Bryce. the veteran publicist, who
has so eminently served Great Britain as ambassador at Wash
ington. No foreigner has made a closer or more comprehensive
study of the American people than has this Englishman, and
nope has been more emphatic in giving expression to the good
that he discovered or more fair in his criticisms. It is not often
tha* the writings of an alien are accepted as leading text books
on the politics and civics of a country, but that has been the
case with "Bryce's American Commonwealth" and other works
by the same author. He is accepted as an authority of the high
est order on American institutions by Americans themselves.
PRAISE FOR TARIFF BILL
AGREEMENT is pretty nearly general among the Eastern
newspapers, that are just arriving in Alaska, that the new.
I'nderwood tariff bill is a carefully drawn measure that
will fully meet the purposes for which it is inteded. It is not,
it "? conceded by most authorities, exactly a tariff for revvnue only;
measure, yet it provides lower tariffs and a longer free list than
any tariff bill that has been proposed in Congress since the Civil
War. The bill was devised to restore competition in business and
to reduce the cost of living without paralysing any ligitimate
American industry. It was the purpose of its authors to ex
punge the monoply-fostering graft ami special privilege from 'he
iai 'a, and it is the concensus of opinion thai this will be accom
plished by th* I nderwood bill.
Of course, here and there is a newspaper that does not see
any virtue in the bill at all. Most of these, however, are papers
closely allied with some industry or combination that has been
profiting from some of the special privilege features of the pres
ent tariff laws, or they are from sugar and wool States where
there is unquestionably genuine opposition to the bill. It is ad
mitted by supporters of the bill that, while it was the purpose
of its authors not to injure any ligimate industry, when it came
to the point of reducing the cost of living?of those things that
men and women eat and wear?there was no hesitation in cutting J
rates, and questions were not asked as to whom would be hurt?
by the reductions.
The Now York World's summary of trie bill is expressive
of she generally accepted verdict upon it. The World says:
"Against the bill as a whole The World believes
there can be little sincere and disinterested opposition.
It is an honest measure. It is a reasonable measure.
It is an intelligent measure. It is a progressive measure.
It is not the product of intrigue and log-rolling. It was
bought with no corrupt contributions to a campaign
fund. It was framed by the representatives of the people
and not by the representatives of privileged interests.
It is a bill to promote the welfare of the many, not the
profits of the few, and the Democratic party can stand
by it in all honor and in all good faith."
The thoughts that spring uppermost in the mind of the Col
onel when he considers the popularity of the direct methods of
President Wilson, as exemplified in the delivery of his inaugural
address in person and in the conferences that he held with Sen
ators and Representatives at the capitol building, can be imag
ined. We can all but hear the gnashing of Oyster Bay molars
when The Strenuous One is thinking of the opportunities that
did not occur to him when he was President.
No one is surprised at the fact that peace has been estab
lished between Bryan and Clark. They have fought the fight
for progress along the same lines too long for each not fully to
understand the merit and good faith of the other.
The gloom and pesimism that prevails at Mexico City is
probably due to the fact that insurgents are devloping down in
that country faster than "accidents" can be arranged.
President Wilson will go through with California to the
end?and all loyal Pacific Coast men and women will enlist with
them.

SKAGWAY IS TOO
HEALTHY FOR HOSPITAL
Thef cut thut Skaway is notorious
ly healthy Is a well established fact |
to which the Hoard of Trustees of the!
White Pass hospital association will'
attest. The association, which is man
ured and controlled by employees of1
til.- White Pass & Yukon Route, re
cently balanced up accounts for the
year 1912 showing a deficit of $1,500,
due entirely to Skagway's pure air and
sunshine and consequent lack of busi-!
iness.
There was a mixed feeling among'
the Trustees, of joy over the com
munity's henlth and doubts as to;
"that darned deficit," but a cash do-1
nation of the total amount from Pres-1
ident Dickeson, of the White Pass,;
has cleared the path for another year.
This generous contribution is much
appreciated by the members of the
Association.?Skagway Alaskan.

WASHINGTON. April 19. ? Secre

one on President Wilson and the oth

a cabinet meeting the other day.
"Gentlmen," he solemnly declared,
"I have an announcement of interna
tional importance to make."
Kvery cabinet member straightened I
in his chair, the California anti-alien
land bill and Japan simultaneously'
popping into every mind. Then Uryan
grinned and read a cable announcing
the birth of a son to his daughter,
