BASEBALL SEASON FAIRLY STARTED
THE baseball game yesterday between Juneau and Douglas
may be said to have been the beginning of the local baseball
season. It was the first game in the series that has been
agreed upon for the championship pennant between teams rep
resenting the two sides of the channel, and, inasmuch as each town
had won one game before it was played, it makes a fair starting
point. Baseball is a wholesome, manly sport. It is the recog
nized American national game. It otters pleasing and healthful
recreation to those that enjoy witnessing its playing, and these
include practically the entire population. The people of the Gas
tineau cities may well congratulate themselves that all the indi
cations are favorable for a season of first-class amateur base
Juneau has taken hold of the Fourth of July proposition in
a manner that means that the celebration will be one of great suc
cess. But Juneau has contracted the habit of taking hold of pub
lic propositions in just that way. and there has been no one to
suggest that the habit be broken.
THE departure of Representative Thomas Gatfney for his home
at Nome takes away from the Capital the last of the non
resident members of the first Alaska Legislature that made
the early spring months of 1913 notable ones in the affairs of
our great Territory, and removes from our city a sturdy, cour
ageous character that we have all learned to admire and like. Mr.
Gatfney is a man of strong convictions, an active conscience and
a capable mind that has been trained by an experienced life among
the working classes of the West. While he was recognized in the
Legislature as the special friend of the workingman, his view
point was, generally speaking, broad, and his genial disposition
and gentlemanly conduct gained friends for him among those of
all classes. He returns to his Nome constituency with the knowl
edge that he has fought a good fight and kept the faith. The
Empire predicts that the people of Alaska will hear more from
Mr. Gatfney as the years pass 011.
If anything more than the frequent reunion of Federal and
Confederate veterans were required to demonstrate that there
is no longer anything left of the sting that came from the Civil
War it is furnished by the fact that there has not been asingle
remark about the recognition of "Rebel Brigadiers" by the pres
ent administration notwithstanding that the President has ap
pointed scions of the Breekenridge, Lamar, Stephens, Lee and
other famous Confederate families to office.
CHANGES IN THE CONSTITUTION
THE promulgation of the Seventeenth amendment to the Con
stitution Saturday recalls that after all this Republic, that
was regarded as the acme of progressivism when it was
launched, is conservative in its progression. While it does not
hesitate to take radical steps when its mind is clear as to their
necessity, it takes plenty of time to deliberate before arriving
at a radical conclusion. The Seventeenth amendment marks the
second great change that has been made in the fundamental
law since the settlement of the issues growing out of the Civil
War more than forty years ago?and the two are directly con
nected with the same general proposition.
In the century and a quarter that has elapse d since the adop
tion of the Constitution there have been but seventeen amend
ments adopted to that instrument, and even that statement, with
out explanation, would give an exaggerated idea of the changes
that have taken place, for the important amendments may be
properlyr consolidated into two groups?three if we include the
first ten amendments, the bill-of-rights amendments, the adop
tion of which was practically agreed upon as a condition precedent
to the ratification of the Constitution in the first instance. The
eleventh amendment had nothing to do with fundamental prin
ciples, but simply more clearly defined the powers of the federal
courts, and properly belongs with the first group. The twelfth
amendment, likewise, was a matter of detail, providing for a more
definite manner of choosing the President and Vice-President,
and was the result of the tangle that the country got into
when Jefferson and Burr, candidates of their party for Presi
dent and Vice-President respectively, received me same numuei
of votes for President because each Presidential elector at that
time cast two votes for President instead of one for President
and one for Vice-President as provided for in that amendment.
The first real change, therefore, in the Constitution came
with the Civil War. The thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth
amendments, adopted between 1865 and 1870, abolished slav
ery, made Negroes citizens, and conferred the elective franchise
upon the colored citizens.
The second change has begun with the sixteenth and seven
teenth amendments. The first of these provides for the income
tax and the second for the direct election of Senators. Both are
the result of the progressive movement that was fairly launched
in the famous campaign of 1896. Whether more will come be
fore the tide of that movement begins to ebb or not, only time
This is a far more conservative record than those that made
the constitution expected. In fact, some of the constitution mak
ers favored the holding of constitutional conventions at stated
periods. Jefferson, who was in France at the time the conven
tion was in session, once espoused this plan, and suggested conven
tions to consider the fundamental law not less frequently than
one in every twenty years.
Those who think the Republican party was wrecked by the
failure of the conferences of the leaders that attended the Re
publican convention at Chicago last year and who expect to heal
the breaches by more conferring by those at the top are reckon
ing from the wrong star. The wounds in the organization were
caused by deep-seated differences among the masses, and there
the healing processes of time must work thmselves out if that
party is again to assume the formidable place in the affairs of
the Nation that it once occupied.
While as a general proposition traffice rate wars intoxicate
rather than develop trade and commerce and usually result in a
reaction that carries the final cost to the consumers, the White
Pass & Yukon and the Northern Navigation Company seem to
have concluded that there is no other way of settling the ques-|
tion of supremacy on the Yukon river, so the people of the North
will accept what enjoyment and profit they can from the war
while it lasts, and consider the antidote for the after effects when
the day for that shall arrive.
No one has yet accused Sir Thomas Lipton of being anything
but a game sportsman, yet he did wait until Nat Herreshoff1
was out of the way before making his fourth challenge for the
YUKON NAVIGATION WILL
HE LATE IN STARTING
Word received at Juneau is that
the ice probably will not move out of
Lake La Large for more than a week
yet. It is solid at the present time
and gives no promise of breaking up
soon. At Skagway it is not believed
that the first boat will sail from White
horse for Dawson until June 10th, and
possibly later than that.
Those in Juneau that contemplate
going down the river are advised by
those that left this place early in the
week to catch the first boat that they
had as well remain where they are for
