110LSE LEAVES LOOPHOLE FOR ALASKA
LATER anil more complete accounts show that the Democrat
ic House caucus let t a good-sized loophole tor the Alaska
question when it decided that nothing out the tariff, cur
rency and emergency appropriations should be considered at this
session ot' Congress. It provided that any matter specially asked
for by the President might be taken up.
With the caucus decision in view, those that are interested
in Alaska matters are trying to secure the early passage of the
Alaska bill by the Senate, and then they will seek to have the
President ask the House to pass the bill. That would auto
matically place it on the House program.
Now let us pray that the Senate will get busy quickly.
In appointing Hermon \V. Craven, of Seattle, to be a mem-'
ber of the federal civil service commission President Wilson se
cured for his administration the services of one of the ablest
and best citizens of the Northwest. .Mr. Craven is a lawyer of
learning, an orator ot talent and a public-spirited citizen who is,
always at the service of those who are devoting time and energy
to the improvement of conditions in his city. In fact, he is usual
ly a leader in up-lift movements there.
WORKING FOR THE COMMON GOOD
SPEAKER COLLINS, of the House of Representatives, shows
the right spirit. He would try to inoculate the people of
Alaska with the work-together idea. It cannot be denied suc
cessfully that this is needed. The unification of Alaska would
be a long step forward in the work of obtaining for the Territory
that recognition which is so essential to its progress and pros
perity. Of course this is a big country. It is so vast that the
people of the different geographical sections are practically
strangers to each other. It has been urged that because of this
wide separation, geographically, there is little or nothing in com
mon between them. This is not the case. The people of the dif
ferent divisions are all interested in the common welfare of
Alaska. Or. if they are not they should be, and the time to be
gin the cultivation of the spirit of unity is now. The establish
ment of a territorial legislature has been the means of bringing
the people of the four judicial divisions closer together. It has
laid the foundation for a better understanding of the needs of
each and of its people. And now in order to reap the fullest ad
vantage of a closer union the spirit of mutual helpfulness must
be still further developed. Why should the people of one section
of Alaska selfishly disregard the appeals of another for help,
aid or encouragement? The injury of one should be the concern
of all. The prosperity of all should unite all in a common pur
pose. There is room for all and opportunity for all.
The building of a railroad to the interior country will bene
fit all Alaska. It will promote friendly intercourse and develop
trade and commerce while opening up new and potentially rich
virgin regions. Therefore let everybody help to spread unity of
purpose and unselfish individual effort on the part of all Alas
kans to work together for the common good.
It is not disparagement of any of those who were his com
petitors to say that President Wilson made an excellent appoint
ment when he selected Fred M. Brown, of Valdez, to be Judge
of the United States District Court for the Third Judicial Di
vision. .Mr. Brown is a pioneer of Alaska, a lawyer of excellent
capabilities, a good man and the friend of all that know him.
LET US HOPE FOR PEACE
IT WILL cause genuine sorrow throughout the civilized world
if the Balkan Alries, thai have won a glorious victory in a war
as just as any that ever was fought, cannot arrange a set
llement of the differences of opinions and conflict of ambitions
arising out of that contest without resorting to fratricidal war.
The perfection of a combination of these little Nations to battle
a traditional enemy of their people and of Christianity and the
manner in which they conducted the war for righteousness that
followed won for them the admiration of the civilized world.
They have, apparently eliminated the Turks as factors in Euro
pean affairs, a thing that more pretentious Nations had been
striving in vain to accomplish for centuries. It will be too bad
if they fall to fighting among themselves, and in that way lose
the opportunity that is theirs to re-establish the prestige of a
people that had the keeping of civilization in its babyhood days.
Let us hope that reason will displace passion in the land of an
cient Macedonia while it is yet time to avoid further bloodshed.
The publication of the testimony in the Roosevelt case,
wherein the various kinds of cocktails, mint julips and other
American drinks have been mentioned, has caused much amuse
ment in Britain. It has set the English newspapers at work pre
paring "glossaries" of American drinks wherein the ingredients
of the various mixtures are set forth and the manner of their
making described. It is affording our British cousins much
Mrs. George F. Cotter; 11. wife of the Mayor of Seattle, is
serving on the June panel of the jury in the Superior Court of
King County. She declined to exercise her right to be excused,
preferring to perform her duties as a citizen in accordance with
her conception of them.
It is said that there are no swear words in Esperanto. Is
that the reason that the traveling public is so slow to adopt it?
