ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7. 1912 at the postoflice at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1879. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: 0?e year, by mail $10.00 Six months, by mail 6.00 Per month, delivered 1.00 REDUCTION OF WORLD'S GOLD SUPPLY AND ITS EFFECT ON ALASKA. THE decrease in gold production that has been noticeable dur ing the last few years is attracting not a little discussion in the world's financial circles. Those that are interested in maintaining property values at something like those now pre vailing are becoming anxious about the situation, and already are giving the matter serious consideration. The plans to pro vide a more elastic currency in the United States will be formu lated with the purpose of supplying the deficiency in the gold supply, yet generally there is a trend of thought that it would be well if there could be an increase in the production of gold. The prevalence of this opinion cannot fail to stimulate the ef forts toward development of gold-producing properties in Alas ka. The Wall Street Journal recently discussed the stoppage of the flow of new gold into the channels of trade that has been prevailing. It quotes a recent article from the Economiste Francaise. written by Pierre Leroy-Balieu, the French economist, in which the writer insists that the annual rate of production of gold has come to a practical siandtsill during the past five years, instead of mounting steadily upwards, as it did during the years following the Boer war. , Turning to figures, the Journal says the present stock of gold money in the world is about $7,500,000,000 .and it thinks that after deducting that used in the arts and the annual absorp tion of gold by India, which, incidentaly, has been increasing heavily in recent years, the present annual addition to the world's stock of gold can hardly be in excess of $250,000,000. This is practically no surplus. "Accepting this contention to be true," proceeds the Jour nal. "and further, that no future increases in the production of gold are likely, there will be fair opportunity to test how sound the quantitative theory of money is in relation to prevailing high prices. If production of gold has reached its maximum, and is to decline rather than advance hereafter, then, according to this theory, prices of all commodities are destined to tend stead ily downward, in response to the growing scarcity of gold." The Democrats were accused in the House of Representa tives the other day of cleaning their feet on the Progressive p.uty's door mat. Are we to infer that it is conceded that their feet are clean? That is the important intimation in the charge. GOVERNMENT 3Y THE PEOPLE THE contention that the direct methods of legislation that have been invoked to bring government closer to the people have a tendency to make demagogues and hypocrites of those that would serve in representative capacity is not based on logic nor is it substantiated by experience. In fact they are having the opposite effect in those States where they are being worked out. They have a tendency to make issues clearer and to force candidates for office to stick closer to principals. They require those seeking legislation to take the masses into their confidence. They add to the responsibilities of citizenship, and have a sobering effect on the average man. One of the ills from which the body politic has suffered has been the indifference of the citizen. Many of those whose wel f- rt requires constructive legislation have shown so little inter est in matters of public importance that they have left the field of discussion to those who pander to the support of classes of citizens that have votes to give, or to those that have special in terests to serve. They become interested in public matters only when a legislature is in session, and then, all too frequently, they discover, or think that they discover, that a platform or an ante election pledge should be broken in the interest of the general good. The result is unkept platform promises and these have done more than anything else in the world to cause the wide spread dissatisfaction at the course of government that exists. Where the people are in command of their government, is sues involving the public welfare are threshed out before the elections, and the people are informed about them. The re sult is always a better understanding among those of all classes of the population and of all manner of employment. If more of the conservative men and women of the country, that are honestly interested in the up-building of the country, would spend more of their time and talent in discussing what they think should be done and why, and less in proclaiming their distrust of the masses they would not be regarded with so much suspicion. It is the most natural thing in the world for voters to view with distrust the actions of those who will not put faith in them. The sane, patriotic, up-building workingmen are in a large majority among the laboring classes. Let them have the infor mation necessary upon which to act intelligently, and no legiti mate industry will suffer at their hands. No interest that will bear scrutiny in the light of a full knowledge of its working need fear to trust the people, and no interest that will not bear such scrutiny deserves public sup port. A London newspaper says England does not welcome Amer ican militant suffragettes on its shores. That is fair. We are not hankering after any of the British militant suffragettes on our shores. It is horse and horse. THE WOMAN SUFFRAGE VOTE IN MICHIGAN THE cause of woman suffrage that came so nearly carrying the election in Michigan last November was lost by a sub stantial majority in the spring election this month. The change of sentiment is due, probably, in a large measure to the capers of the militant suffragettes of Great Britain and the spec tacular performances of those of the American Atlantic seaboard. The bomb-throwing, house-burning, fighting women of England and the foolish enthusiasts of our own country are doing more to overcome the work of the really earnest, sincere and sane men and women that have devoted time and talent to securing the light of franchise for women than any other influence with which the latter have to contend.
