LEGISLATURE DID WELL
WHEN all is said and done the verdict of the people of
Alaska should be one of approval of the first Alaska Leg
islature. The members gave the Territory sixty days of hard,
conscientious effort. They went into all the matters that came
before them, and investigated the conditions existing in the Ter
ritory with painstaking care and with the legislative needs of the
people uppermost in their minds. They did nothing hastily, and
they acted throughout from high motives. They accomplished
a great deal of good work, and they brought the people of the
territory closer together than they ever have been before. They
left undone things that should have been done without doubt,
and none know it so well as the very men that have been work-1
ing out the problems of self-government at Elks' hall for the last
two months. That every need ot tne lerniory couiu mn uc* mt-i
at the first session of the Legislature must have been expected.
The Legisglature was blazing a new trail, and it had but sixty[
days in which to do its work. It took most of that time to make
anything like an adequate survey of the field. If its session could
have been extended another thirty days it would have accom
plished much more than it did. However, all things considered,
the Legislature did well, and is deserving praise from the peo
ple of the North. It cleared the decks, and has prepared the
Ship of State for action. The next Legislature will find its task
Bryan's refusal to serve wine at official dinners ha.> oecome
an international question. One would think that, with the war
in Europe, the Japanese complications on the Pacific, the status
of the Panama canal unsettled, Mexico in the throes of anarchy
and China on the verge of civil war on account of international
loans, the papers and international gossips would have enough
things of real importance to keep their minds occupied.
ONE OF THE GOOD ACTS.
WHEN people are discussing the work of the Alaska Legisla
ture. and enumerating the good work that it has accom
plished, the passage of the bill conferring the vote upon
the women of the North should not be overlooked. That was one
of the most just, most righteous and sanest measures adopted.
The women of the North are doing a part in the development of
Alaska that is the equal in importance with that the men of the
Territory are doing. Here as elsewhere a larger percentage of thei
women are attached to the most stable and permanent element of
the population than is the case with the men. and the stable and
permanent people of any community constitute its most intel
ligent citizenry. It is the elecment that is really interested in
the development of those things that count for civilization. The
enfranchisement of the women of Alaska was a tremendous re
inforcement to the better element of voters and they will prove a
valuable asset in the work of building up a commonwealth.
MASSACHUSETTS AND THE NEW TARIFF
THAT election in Massachusetts, when a Democrat was elect
ed to succeed John W. Weeks, who had been chosen to the
United States Senate, in the House of Representatives, was
not only an endorsement of the Underwood tariff bill but it was a
rebuke to Gov. Eugene N. Foss, of Massachusetts, Democrat,
who had protested that the tariff bill is not a faithful party!
measure. He said it was too much of a free trade bill and did
not recognize the principle of protection sufficiently to safeguard
the interests of Massachusetts manufacturers. The campaign in
the 13th Massachusetts district was fought directly on the Un
derwood bill as an issue. The district is located in the South-j
eastern section of the State where the manufacturing interests
are strongly entrenched. The victory for those supporting the
measure was emphatic. The Democrats were given a plurality j
of more than 4.000 as against a Republican plurality of nearly
2,500 less than six months before, notwithstanding that the
new United States Senator Weeks actively participated in be
half of the Republican nominee. The result is regarded through
out the East as a clear indication of the trend of public opinion.
It is looked upon as a very pronounced verdict of approval of the
new administration, and it has strengthened it materially in its
fight for the fulfillment of platform pledges.
Juneau parts with the members of the first Legislature with
regret. The people of the Capital City have enjayed their pres
ence and their company immensely. They have come to like
them collectively and individually. When chance or duty calls anj
one of them here again, he will find a warm place in the heart.1
of all the people awaiting him.
If anyone in Alaska, in a moment of impatience or other
wise, ever said an unkind or disrespectful word about the Unitec
States military cable or anyone connected with it, we ventun
that he is sorry for it and ready to take it back. Two weeks'
dealing with the various lines that make up the long, circuitoiu
route through Canada have convinced everybody that the ca!
ble line is pure gold, unalloyed and undefiled.
"We've got to have harmony."
"How are we going to get it?"
"By making the other fellows change
their tunes or else keep quiet."
"Do you think it is wise to send a wo
man to prison for suffragetting?"
"No." Replied the London police
man. "The first thing we know there
won't be any peace and quiet, even in
Douglas Island Norwegians will cel
ebrate "17de Mai Fest," the Norway
Fourth of July, on the 17th of May.?
A Cosmic Reflection.
"Here," said the man of pensiv
mien, "is something that I dashed o
in an idle hour."
"Well," said the man beside th
waste basket. There's no reason fa
printing it There's no use of idly cor
suming both time and space."
An Income Taxer.

His objection he'll relax,
If the income tax is provided,
He won't worry 'bout the tax.

Company, of Valdez, has been with
drawn from the market. It is said the
company has enough money to insure
development work, and the showing

the sale of any more stock until fur

value for it.

FAST TIME MADE
OVER FAIRBANKS TRAIL
The Fairbanks Times says that the
fastest time made over the winter trail
between Chitina and Fairbanks was
accomplished by the stage that
reached Fairbanks on the evening of
March 28. Records of previous runs
were broken, and the new one, 3 days
and 23 hours, was hung up. The last
stretch of 128 miles from Rapids was
made without a stop, changes of hors
es being made at each station. The
distance between Fairbanks and Chit
ina is 311 miles, so the average dis
tance covered each day was 7S miles.
