DEFEAT OF GEORGE E. RYAN.
THE reported defeat of George E. Ryan for the United States
marshalship in Western Washington and the appointment
of another Tacoma man to a high office in that State will
be depressivingly disappointing to the Democratic party organi
zation of Washington. Seattle with three times the population of
Tacoma and more than four times the number of Democratic votes
has not received as many'offices since the change of administra
tion as has the latter place. The excuse is offered that Seattle
Democrats are divided and not working harmoniously. The fact
of the matter is that those of Seattle who oppose the organiza
tion have not carried a primary within ten years and cannot do <
it in another ten. They do not elect enough delegates or precinct
committeemen to make a convention or committee meeting in
Seattle seem otherwise than a harmony love feast, yet, by using
the social influence at the National capital of men who never lived
in Seattle or King County, they have been able to catch the ear)
of those in high office.
No man in the State of Washington has done as much to per- j
feet the organization that swept Gov. Ernest Lister into office
and which came so near carrying the Evergreen State for Wilson j
as George Ryan has done. If the Democratic party shall elect a
United States Senator in that State* this year it will be because
George Ryan and others who have worked at his side have kept 1
the Democratic party true to progressive principles in spite of
those who have secured most of the offices through the appoint
ing powers. (
However, George Ryan is a democrat?the little "d" is used
purposely?who is such from principle and not for spoils. His
strength will be even greater because he was refused the only,
political appointment he ever asked. The reactionaries will find
him to be the same tireless and consummate organizer in the fu- '
ture that he has been in the past. He is still a leader and past
master in the direction of energy in one of the most patriotic
bands of progressive Democrats that ever organized for the pub
lic good?a band that will not permit misdirected officials of high
rank to destroy the usefulness of the Democratic party in a sov
ereign State.
Congress resumes its work at the National capital today, and
at the top of the calendar of both houses are the Alaska railroad
bills. It is the consensus of Western opinion that Senators and
Representatives cannot work too fast upon them. It is generally
conceded that the administration bill will pass both houses as
soon as a vote can be secured.
CHAMBERLAIN ABANDONS TARIFF FIGHT.
JOSEPH CHAMBERLAIN, prophet of the English high tariff
element, has announced that he will never again run for Par
liament, and practically admits that the cause for higher tar
iffs in England was lost for all time when the United States be
came a low tariff Nation.
The trend of British opinion seems to justify the reported
conclusion of the aged British statesman. It is believed on the
other side of the Atlantic that the new American tariff law will
enable American manufacturers to produce cheaper and become
competitors for the trade of the world in many things that have
heretorfore been monopolized by the British and Germans.
All of which is to say that when President Wilson referred '
to the "long generation through" fight for tariff reform in the
United States as a continuous battle for the freedom of com- 1
merce he spoke from a store house of knowledge the discovery of
the possession of which is causing all sorts and conditions of
men in this country and the world to recognize in him a states- 1
man of the first magnitude.

POVERTY UNKNOWN
DOWN AT WRANGELL
After speaking of the accomplish
ments of the last year in Alaska and
the cinditfon in which the New Year
finds the Territory, the Wrangell Sen
tinel has done:
"The same progressive spirit has
been shown in Wrangell. The town
has quit talking nbout doing things
and is doing them. We have extend
ed our water system; we have added
new industries; there has been consid
erable construction work done; we are
building a better class of residences,
which have added greatly to the beau
ty of our town, and wo have improved
our streets. The Sentinel is proud
of what Wrangell has accomplished.
Our development has not been one-sid
ed; our people have made money and
are in the way of making more. Pov
erty is unknown-among us."
