THE FREEDOM OF COMMERCE.
ALTHOUGH the new tariff bill has been in effect only since
last October practically all of the thinkers of the country
are now ready to concede that the United States has aban- i
doned its former high tariff policy for all time. The belief is gen- e
eral that the present tariff law is the highest that we will ever 0
have. It is thought, even by most of those business men who *
were formerly high-tariff supporters, that when changes are
made in the schedules now in force they will be downward
changes rather than upward. |?
Not only is this the conclusion so far as the United States c
is concerned, but it is believed that the result of our experience *
will bring about reductions in other countries. It is said that 8
the high tariff men of England have about decided that the fight t
for higher duties must be abandoned in that country, and Canada v
is now in the midst of another tariff reduction campaign, lead by:'
the brilliant Laurier. hero of many Northern political battles. The J
tariff reformers in Canada have made such headway that the Con- a
servative party government has already appointed a commission 0
to investigate the tariff and its bearing on the high cost of liv- e
ing. The commission is instructed to report upon where tariff
reductions can be made in such a way as not to jeopardize the
the Canadian business.
Even from Germany come rumblings of a tariff controversy a
that is gathering momentum. ; v
So it goes. The trend of public thought everywhere is to- 11
ward the freedom of commerce and industry. i o
W. E. Wilcox, United States bank examiner, is an enthus-L
iastic booster for this place, which he recognizes as one of the j
important and permanent mining sections of the Nation. This is j
now an old story with Juneau. One need only to become familiar \
with the actual conditions existing here to become convinced as
to the permanency and stability of the place. J
A POSSIBLE REASON FOR NEW NATIONALISM. ,a
POSSIBLY one of the reasons why Mr. Pinchot and other al- (
leged reformers have carried their so-called reforms to ?
Washington for enactment and administration rather than
to the separate States is that the people of the States within i
which they would have their plans carried into execution would 1
reject their theories. On the other hand there are always those
at Washington who are willing to support almost anything, com- 1
ing to them with the badge of "reform" conspicuously emblazon- 1
ed upon it, so long as those whom it would afflict are the constit- v
uents of somebody else.
It is significant that the theories of New Nationalism get (
more earnest support in the conservative East, than they get in. '
the progressive West. The West tyas been progressive so long
and knows so well the fundamental principles involved in pro
gressivism that it can distinguish between the genuine article '
and the spurious without difficulty.
The Chinese President has dissolved his country's parlia- 1
ment. Now that it has elected him to be chief executive of the J
Nation and witnessed his inauguration he can see no reason why
it should stick around any longer. 8
SETH MANN IN LINE WITH THE OTHERS. 5
SETH MANN, the personal representative of President Wilson (
on an extensive Alaskan tour, has added his voice to the j
chorus that is ascending from the whole West. Following j
the suggestions of Gov. Strong, Secretary Lane, Delegate Wick- "
ersham and the others, in office and out, who are interested in t
Alaska, either materialy or intellectualy, he urges the government .
to construct railroads and wagon roads in the Territory and to "
open the coal lands. Let the good work go on. t
