LOW YUKON RATES IN EFFECT
WITH the beginning of inland navigation in Alaska a few
days ago the talk of lower freight and passenger rates for
those oi the f ukon of which we had heard so much was
translated into actuality, lhe prevailing passenger or freight
charge everywhere on the Yukon waterway, no matter the direc
tion or distance one may go or send freight, is 50 per cent oi the
amount heretofore prevailing. In some instances, it is said, the
reductions are even more than that.
This wholesale rate reduction has already resulted in a
marked change in trade conditions. Greater tonnage is ottering
for the Yukon than ever before was the case, and the indications
are that later shipments will be larger than they have been in
And this is not all. General Manager 0. L. Dickeson, of
the White Pass, says the new rates have come to remain?at
least, they will remain until they shall be further reduced. He
says the White Pass has entered the lower Yukon tratlic as a per
manent proposition, and that it will continue to reduce freight
rates as fast as growing commerce will make that possible.
The statement of Mr. Dickeson is signficant. It indicates
that he does not recognize the conditions now obtaining on the
Yukon as those of "a rate war," but that he considers them the
result of ligitimate competition, and he seems to see profits in
the new "half-rate" that has been put into effect. Let us hope
that he sees aright. If ligitimate. sharp competition can be
maintained on the Yukon river, and competing railroads
provided for the people of the interior, the growth of Northern
tratlic will be enormous.
Illinois is extending to women the right of suffrage on the
installment plan. First they were permitted to vote at school
elections. Now they are allowed to vote for statutory officers.
Next, probably, will be the constitutional amendment, and full
PORTLAND. OREGON, and Denver, Colorado, have adopted
the commission form of government, and now both of those
cities, of more than 20U.000 population, will be governed by
commissions of five men. In Portland the Mayor, who is also a
commissioner, receives a salary of $6,000. The other four com
missioners get $->.000 each. In both Portland and Denver the
government is non-partisan in character.
All the big cities of the Far West now, except San Fran
cisco and Seattle, have the non-partisan commission form of gov
ernment. and Seattle's government is non-partisan, and the Coun
cil consists of only nine members all elected from the city at
The movement toward non-partisanship in all things except
those that have to do with the issues that separate political
parties is making rapid strides in this country. In many of the
States there is a growing demand that county governments be
removed from politics. Gov. Ernest Lister recommended that
the last Sate Legislature in Washington pass a law providing
for the non-partisan election of county officers, and he recently,
in a speech at Seattle renewed his support of that principle. All
of the newspapers of Seattle, except the Times, are advocating
such a course, and it is almost certain to be adopted at an early
date in that State. It is probable that, when it is adopted,
it will include all State officers except the Governor and members
of the legislature.
The effect of this non-partisan movement in local affairs,
if carried far enough, would be to relieve National political or
ganizations of local political machines on the one hand, and on
the other it would permit the people of communities to decide
local questions on their merits. It would make issues clear-cut
and easily understood. It would simplify government in the
country, and that is what the advocates of commission govern
ment and local non-partisanship are seeking to do.
Kansas is all worked up over an anticipated shortage of har
vest hands. Why not a shortage? With the thermometer there
hovering around the 100-in-the-shade mark, who would want to
remain in Kansas?
The peevishness of those lobbyists who are attacking Pres
ident Wilson should be overlooked. They are not used to being
spanked and it is but natural that they should make faces.
While there are few that will admit thai they are supersti
tious. there are many that be a little might careful today. It
is Friday, the 13th.
BLACK FOX FARM BEING
ESTABLISHED IN HAINES
Tom Lahey. of Haines. is establishing
a fox farm near that place. H<? has
had wonderful success this spring in
securing animals with which to stock
the farm. Already more than twenty
fine foxes have been secured. Of the
twenty, all of which are in good con
dition, five are the very rare black j
variety. It Is .Mr. Lahey's intention;
to raise nothing but cross-fox and the;
valuable black, unless good specimens
of silver greys are obtained. His id4,a
is to get a large stock of black. A
pair of perfect black fox are worth
close to $3,000.

BRING NEW THINGS
Down at the Douglas Opera House,
where once all was bustle and life,
peace reigns. The yell of the chief
herder, the rattle of chips and the
merry laugh of the lassies is heard no
more. All is changed. Where once the
stage rattled and shook beneath the
feet of a buck and wing dancer, a so
ber. six-hole rhnge softly smokes. It
is now only a quiet, peaceable hotel
with dining room in connection. As
in days gone by, drinks may be had
at the bar. The old Opera House has
changed with the times. Formerly no
one wanted to sleep, and the noise
made it impossible. Now it is so quiet
that you feel sleepy when you enter
the door.?Douglas News.
