MR. CHENEY AND HIS MISSION
ZR. CHENEY" returns to Juneau with every right to feet
?that he is entitled to all the congratulations that are being
heaped upon him. His mission to the nation's capital was
completely successful, judge it from any standpoint you will.
He went East with the endorsement of the organization of his
party for the position of Democratic National Committeeman.
He was elected. He urged the appointment of genuine, resident
Alaskans to federal positions of responsibility in this Territory.
The President and the members of his Cabinet have agreed that
only such will be appointed, and the appointments that have been
made thus far have been men?and a woman?that are Alas
kans in all that the term implies. He urged that Congress sup
plement the work of the administration with legislation that will
facilitate the opening of Alaska to settlement and the develop
ment of its resources?a work that was stayed by the New Na
tionalism and bureacracy introduced by former President Roose
velt and adhered to by former President Taft. Congress is al
ready at work on the Chamberlain-VVickersham bill.
Of course, Mr. Cheney does not claim all the credit for the
satisfactory manner in which the new administration has taken
up Alaska matters, nor will anyone claim the credit for him.
However, his influence was thrown in favor of the things that
the people of Alaska most desire, and the administration is mak
ing a good start to do the things that he and the other people of
Alaska stand for. He has helped the good cause along by exhib-:
iting an activity in keeping with a healthy public spirit, and he
has been active on the side of the people of Alaska. All the
people will reap the benefit, as they usually do from all unsel
fish. patriotic public service. The Empire joins in extending
congratulations to Mr. Cheney.
Let's see, how many millions was it Frank Chance received
to make a winning team out of the New Y'ork Americans? Well,
he hasn't earned much of it yet. Maybe he is on a strike.
DEMAND FOR INITIATIVE AND REFERENDUM
THE fight between Gov. Sulzer and Murphy, where one citi
zen is interposing to prevent the people's legislature from
keeping its pledges to the people, and that between Presi
dent Wilson and the New Jersey machine, where a few bosses
that have been repeatedly rebuked by the voters of the State are
preventing the fulfillment of party platforms, are bringing the
question of the initiative and referendum home to those of the
East. The New York World says that the initiative and referen
dum are unsound in theory, and it commends the indisputable
logic of Elihu Root in his argument against them, but it insists
the legislatures are giving daily object lessons of their need as
a practical means of enforcing the popular will.
No one can controvert the argument that representative gov
ernment is more intelligent and more effective than direct gov
ernment when it is representative. But machines, bosses and
special privilege beneficiaries have been so successful in prevent
ing representatives from representing their constituents that it
is becoming necessary for the people to reserve the right to them
selves to act directly when necessary. When the people of a
State or a community adopt the initiative and referendum they
usually discover that the need for their use disappears. They have
a tendency to make representatives acutely sensative about their
performances. To use a similie that his often served President
Wilson, they are the loaded guns behind the door that guard
against midnight attacks.
Those Philadelphia ball teams are doing pretty well when
one considers the reputation of their town for speed. The quak
ers are leading both the major leagues.
THE ROBBER\ OF MONTENEGRO
PEOPLE gene-ahy will extend their sympathy to little Monte
negro that so heroically battled the Turks until they were
compelled to give up Scutari and now is compelled at the dic
tation of the Powers to surrender the prize its people have desired
so long. By all the lules o: fairness and right there is but one
people in the world that would have right to prevent Montenegro
from retaining Scutar?the people of Scutari.
But that always has been the policy of the Powers of Eu
rope. They have followed the rule that " might makes right."
They know nothing of justice or equity or fair-play. They do as
nations the very things that the laws of Holy Writ and of man
prohibit nidividuals from doing. They act on the theory that
crime is not crime if done by a sufficiently large collection of in
dividuals acting together. They have made the little nations
of their continent whining and begging weaklings by their bull
dozing and brutal policies. They have maintained until this
day the ethics of barbarism as national standards.
Like the eagle, that so many of them have very appropriate
ly adopted as the symbol of nationality, which lazily and lordly
watches from some vantage point for opportunity to compel by
display of superior strength and power osprey or fish-hawk to
give up some hardly earned prize, the Powers of Europe are con
stantly on guard awaiting chance to force a little nation to give
up something that selfishness or caprice might create taste for.
Verily, the millenium is yet afar off.
GLEANIGS FROM GREAT
NORTHERN EMPIRE
There is not at present a vacant

Never before have small birds been
so numerous in and around White

not song birds, it is pleasing to see
them here in such great numbers.?

The Fundy Fox Farming Company
that has been making quite a record
with its farm near St Johns, New
Brunswick, has established a branch

cured four acres of land near that
place and is out after live foxes.

erations on Fourth of July creek early
last year, after hauling the machin

been installed two years previously.
But. owing to lack of water, little was
accomplished.

Fifty thousand pounds of dynamite
were shot off in one blast at Prince ltu
pert last week in destroying an un
sightly knoll that was in the way of
progress at that town. The blast cost;
$5,000, and shook the country for miles
around. Moving picture productions !
of the blast were taken. The demon- \
st rat ion was witnessed by all the citi
zens of the city?from a safe dis
tance. of course.

Word has been received from Thor-1
j man. 12 miles above Telegraph creek, j
on the Stickine river, that an agita-i
tor that was on his way to the Nah-i
lin strike in the Teslin country, had
tarried with the Indians at that place
and is trying to set the natives
against the missionaries. The mis
sionaries think, however, that the
strong arm of the government will
prevent any great harm from result
ing.
