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
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
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
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.

ONE NORTHERN WHALING
COMPANY WILL BE IDLE
SEATTLE.?Notified of its infrac
tion of the contract labor laws too
late to make preparations with them
this season, the Alaska Whaling Co.,
which last season operated extensive
ly in northern waters, will this year
be unable to make its usual catch.
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
GOVERNORS CANNOT FILL
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

upon the governor to order a popu
lar election unless he is authorized by I
legislative act to make temporary ap
