ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7. 1912 at the postotlice at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1S79. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: year, by mail $10.00 Six months, by mail 6.00 Per month, delivered 1.00 ANOTHER SEASON BEGINS. THE sailing of the Corwin and the departure of the Bering sea patrol fleet marks the beginning of another season of ac tivity in Northern Alaska. In the next five months those virile men of that section of the Territory will strive with all their might to concentrate in less than a half year a full year's accomplishment. Every day will be made to count. Not a mom ent will be lost. They have been storing up energy and making plans for the fray during a long winter, and they go forth as war riors to a battlefield. Before the ides of October shall be with us, they will have added millions to the gold supply of the world, and a harvest of furs and curios will have been sent into the marts of trade in exchange for the sinews with which to make another furious campaign next year. It is an interesting life, and they are interesting men that follow it. One of these days, the problem of winter transportation to this farther section of Alaska will have been solved. When that time comes, there will be a whole year in which the development of the Bering sea and Arctic ocean section can proceed along orderly lines. Yet it is not likely that the Arctic summer season will ever lose any of its strenuousness. Certainly it will not as long as the present generation of Alaskans continues active there. Last Thursday for the second time Secretary of Commerce Redfi'eld announced that the government would investigate any cut in wages that might be made following the enactment of the Underwood taritl* bill, and President Wilson ratified the first state ment made by his Cabinet officer some time ago. Evidently, it is the intention of the executive department that the bill shall have a fair trial. PRESIDENT INSISTS UPON FULFILLMENT. WHETHER the tariff bill shall proove good or ill President Wil son has determined that it shall fulfill Democratic promises and that no man shall have cause to characterize its enact ment as "party perfidy and dishonor." The demand for free raw materials and for cheaper necessities must be acceded to, and the manufacturers must be compelled to get down to a competitive basis, and depend upon the quality and price of their goods rather than a cinch on the market to keep their lactories going. Sup port of these principles is being made the test of Democracy by the President, and he has announced that it is his purpose to ascertain whether or not the people have selected a Democrat ic majority in the United States Senate. W hile there is objection to the President's course by those whose profits will be curtailed by the withdrawal of the special benefits that the high tariff has been bestowing upon them, the masses of the people are unquestionably upholding the adminis tration. Even those that have supported high tariff, as a matter of public policy rather than for selfish purposes, recognize the rec titude of the President and the justice of his position, and are hoping that he will succeed in securing a fair trial for the prin ciples and policies of the Democratic party. Most of those Senators that seem to be so desirous of master ing the schedules that they might discover where they stand on the tariff bill are really trying to discover what their constituents will do to them at the next election if they vote for or against the bill. HALF-HOLIDAYS FOR GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES SECRETARY OF COMMERCE WILLIAM C. REDFIELD'S movement to have government employees given a Saturday half-holiday should be successful. It should not be confined to the employees of the District of Columbia either. It should ex tend throughout the country. Most of the employers of labor in office and other sedent* ry occupations are giving employees a half-day off during the week, and Uncle Sam should not be less generous than the others. Anything that has a tendency to make life worth living to those that are doing the drudgery in the work of the world is worthy of the most careful consideration. It is not a wonder that Secretary Redfield is receiving congratula tory letters and telegrams from all sections of the country and from those in all stations of life. The Pall Mall Gazette's "Wishy Washington" is almost worth the rest of the hullabaloo that has risen from the Bryan "grape juice" dinner. SULZER BEGINS THE WAR. GOV. WILLIAM SULZER has laid down the law?Democrats must support the direct primary bill or not be recognized as Democrats at the State capital. He declared to the Demo cratic members of the Legislature and the Democratic county chairman that he would hold those of them that oppose his pri mary to be political enem es, and that he would fight them to the last ditch. He said to them in plain language that he understands the game of politics, and that he knows New York State. He told them that all his skill as a politician and all his knowledge of the people will be utilized to crush those that do not stand for the keeping of the Democratic pledge for a primary election law. And next week he takes the stump in the finish fight under the rules he has laid down. It is not strange that the democratic Democrats of New York are well pleased. At last they have a leader, one with the cour age to attack Murphy and with the skill to whip him. It is the first time the masses of the State have had such an one since Tilden. The result of the contest is likely to be a duplication of that battle in the 70s, when Tweed was driven into retirement, and Tammany confined to its little island. If Sulzer, and Roosevelt, and Hearst do not get to quarreling over who shall work in the lead they will make an effective tandem team in a campaign anyhow.

Its two steam whalers, the Unimak and Kodiak, now iu Seattle, will re main at their docks until time to go out next season. Last season the Alaska Whaling Co. operated the old Norwegian steam whaler, which was fitted up as a rendering plant and anchored close to shore near where the two new whalers were operating. Late this spring the company was notified by the government that in anchoring the Norwegian vessel in American wa ters and refining the American pro duct aboard the vessel they were vio lating the contract labor law. The notification came too late in the season that it was impossible for the whaling company to make other arrangements to handle its products, and as a result the entire plant will J this year remain idle. Besides the rendering plant on the j Admiralen, the company has a for- j tilizing factory at Akutan. This year additional machinery will be installed j and next season both oil and fertiliz er will be handled from that point, which will be the main station of the company. GOVERNORS CANNOT FILL SENATORIAL VACANCIES ? s WASHINGTON, May 17?One of the most significant changes wrought by the adoption of the amendment to the federal constitution providing for the election of United States Sena tors by direct vote of the people is that it deprives the governors of the states of the power to appoint sena tors in case of vacancies when the legislature is not in session. Unless the legislature expressly empowers the governor to appoint he can do nothing in such a contingency. The following clause in the amend ment is the one that governs the fill ing of vacancies. "When vacancies happen in the rep resentation of any state in the sen ate. the executive authority of such j state shall issue writs of election to fill such vacancies, provided that the j legislature of any state may empower the executive thereof to make tern-' porary appointments until the people fill up the vacancies by election as the legislature may direct. Under the constitution, before it power to fill a vacancy In the senate power to fill a vacancy 1 nthe senate by appointment until the legislature met. Hereafter it is made mandatory upon the governor to order a popu lar election unless he is authorized by I legislative act to make temporary ap pointments. That Will Help Some. Anyhow the fact that the grand jury is in session will cause the grafters and crooks to lay low for a season.? Seattle Sun.

"Yes," replied the dealer who does not wish to offend; "that is to say, I think it will be cheaper this summer than it will next." Position of Advantage.
