ALASKA ESSLY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7, 1912 at the postofllce at Ju neau. Alaska, uuder the Act of March 3. 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: 0?e year, by mail $10.00 ytx mouths, by mail 6.00 Per month, delivered 1.00 A TIME WHEN TAFT WAS RIGHT WHILE former President Taft was usually wrong in his con clusions on Alaska matters, the receipt at Juneau yester day of a patent to some Controller Bay lands issued to "Dick" Ryan, recalls one time when he came out of a contro versy that waged fiercely for a brief period with colors flying high. Pinchot had thought he had discovered in the executive order releasing 1.200 acres of the Chugach forest a deliberate plot to give the Guggenheims a monopoly of an entrance to the coal lands. Ryan was supposed to be the agent for these horri ble people that were trying to gobble up Alaska. He had applied for a patent to 160 acres of ground on this land that had been attached to a forest reserve, but that had no tree on it that a pruning hook could not easily negotiate. The application for a patent was being carefully scrutinized. Somebody pretended to have discovered a letter written from "Dick" Ryan to Secretary of the Interior Richard A. Ballinger whom he was alleged to have addressed as "Dear Dick," in which he explained that "Charley" Taft had assisted Ryan in getting his brother, the President, to released the lands desired from the reserve. The alleged letter was one of those chummy kind that seemed to disclose a gnral un drstanding on the part of Ryan. Ballinger and all the members of the Taft family. From that time forward the "Dick to Dick" letter entered into the controversy and was regarded as evi dence of a conspiracy. The charges that were hurled at Taft by Pinchot and others of the unelected and invisible members of the famous Roosevelt court were sizzling hot. Controller Bay was represented in magazine and newspaper as being the one spot in all Alaska upon the control of which depended the freedom of the race, and Taft proposed to take it from a Pinchot forest and give it to the Guggenheims! Roosevelt took the matter up in The Outlook, and the battle was furious. Then Taft wrote a message to Congress, after having been asked for an explana tion. He showed that Controller Bay had been rejected as a suitable harbor by the Guggenheims and others; that it was un safe and unwanted by anybody?but "Dick" Ryan, of course, and "Dick" was getting it to unload on someone that had never seen it.?and, as a matter of fact, three-fourths of the avail able Controller Bay property was still open for purchase and had been for months and no one would have it. The President so completely riddled the teapot in which the tempest had been raging that the Congressional investigation was dropped. Roose velt became silent, and poor Pinchot was called upon for so many explanations by those that had taken his word for it all that he made a trip to Alaska seking to discover a hole through which to escape. President Wilson is a President for everybody. He even writes his messages short enough for everybody to read them and plain enough for anybody to understand them. WAR DECLARED ON HIGH-TARIFF DEMOCRATS THE New York World that lead the newspaper fight that was made for the nomination of Woodrow Wilson for President, and which one of our leading magazine editors picked out a short time ago as the strongest edited paper in the United States, has declared war on the high-tariff Democrats in Congress and is asking them to quit the party. The World, like the President, is a low-tariff Democrat. It, like the President, thinks the Under wood bill a splendid fulfillment of Democratic pledges, and it propose to make support of it a test of the right to member ship in the Democratic party. Here is the way the World goes aftre the so-called high-tar iff Democrats: "There are men in Congress who are Democrats until they encounter a Democratic principle. They are Democrats until a Democratic platform is to be made effective. They are Democrats until a party pledge is to be redeemed. Then they become Republicans. "Now that a Tariff bill to curb monopoly and re duce the cost of living is under consideration, some of these gentlemen occupy the centre of the stage. The cane-sugar Democrats are certain to vote against it. Various wool Democrats may join them. If they do as they threaten, the resulting law may not be a Dem ocratic tariff-reform measure. It is likely to be a Re publican protective-tariff measure rooted in privilege and greed. "Why. for example, should anybody in Louisiana call himself a Democrat? Hardly a man in public life in that State supports Democratic principles. Yet most of the people affiliate with the Democratic party. They attend its caucuses and conventions. They subscribe to its platforms. They take the stump for the ticket and vote it straight. They give a fine imitation of-De mocracy until asked in Congress to favor Democratic policy, when they stampede to the Republican side. "Democratic tariff principles have not been hidden from the people. They have been proclaimed over and over again, and the people have accepted them. The cane and beet sugar States have accepted them. The wool States have accepted them. Why then should men elected by those who indorse these principles now have to be entreated not to vote with the Republicans? "The Democratic party has renounced privilege. It must also renounce those in its ranks who cling to privi lege. Political housecleaning is as necessary as domes tic housecleaning. It is time for the Democratic house cleaning at Washington to begin." BRYAN'S VISIT TO CALIFORNIA. THE Wilson administration is about to add another precedent to the innovations that it already has established. The Sec retary of State is on his way to consult with a state legisla ture, that of California, first-hand. The fact that the National administration and the California state administration are at agreement insofar as the principles involved in the proposed California legislation are concerned makes it easy guessing that there will be no serious disagreement between them over the matter. The National administration believes in the right of a state to govern itself and the Californians do not propose to vio late any of the Nation's treaties. It will be arranged, in all prob ability, so that the people of California will be satisfied and Japan will not have any valid excuse to offer objections. But the fact that both the Nation and the State are concerned in the matter makes it proper that there should be consultation and agreement, and Wilson and Bryan have adopted the most sensible method of consultation, and the one that is most likely to result in agree ment.
