WORTHY OF ENCOURAGEMENT.
THE plans of the Juneau high schools boys to make a tour of
other towns of Southeastern Alaska and meet their basket
ball teams are worthy of encouragement. Interest in ath
letics should be encouraged. It encouiages temperance and right
living. It prepare* for the competition in the struggle that will
follow the eJiool '-fe. It adds spice and variety to youthful ex
Such trips as that which is planned by the Juneau boys are
approved by the teaching profession everywhere, because in ad
dition to the benefit that comes from interest in athletics gener
ally, they add to the breadth of the youthful viewpoint, and they
prepare those that go out with the reputation of the home school
in their keeping to become used to feeling personal responsibility, i
and accustomed to doing team work.
They do still more. They have a tendency to awaken an in- 1
terest in the schools and the youth of the land among those
who long since have ended their school days. They advertise the
schools and the need to have thought of those who will have ?
charge of the country after those now in their prime shall have !
ceased to become active. ]
By all means, let's do what we can for the boys and girls. (
They are, after all, Alaska's best and most valuable product. 1
ABOUT FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES.
THE fundamental principles of government involved in the con- 1
troversy over the use of the streets of Juneau for mass ]
meetings are the right of the public to their use for the pur- (
poses of traffic and the obligation of good citizens to obey the <
laws made by the majority or its legally constituted representa
tives. With these eliminated the question becomes one of pub
lic policy. The streets afford convenient places for men to hold
meetings when better places are not available. When their use' ,
for that purpose does not conflict with the right of the public to ?
their use for the purposes of traffic we can see no good reason J
why they should not be so used. c
However, in Juneau, there is an ordinance that prohibits the J
use of the streets for street meetings. The reasons assigned for
the passage of the ordinance by the lawful representatives of
the people, who have legal control of the streets, are that,
the thoroughfares of the city are narrow and that traffic is
growing. They contend that it would work a hardship upon the ^
public to overburden the streets, and that the public's right to
their use should be protected.
While that ordinance is in effect it is the law of the com
munity, and good citizenship requires that its terms should be
obeyed, just as all the other laws of the community should be r
obeyed. Alaska has a government which recognizes the right of j
the majority to control, and it provides frequent elections where
the will of the majority may be ascertained. There is no more *
excuse for law defiance in Juneau than there is in any section of *
the United States, or in any other self-governing country. d
So far as right principles are concerned, they are seldom on
the side of law-breakers. They are not so in Juneau.
HE re-adjustment of business" is the President's phrase.
1 Oil and tobacco have been re-adjusted and so has Union i
Pacific. About sixty civil and criminal proceedings
against other, monopolistic enterprises are pending. Some busi
nesses have refused to be re-adjusted, because they have held
that good law-breakers need no such discipline. Others have 0
clung to the idea that in the course of time they would be able 1
to re-adjust the people and the Government of the United States, k
"Re-adjustment" is the kindest word ever used by a Presi
dent. Those in need of it may supply it themselves peaceably and
profitably, or, failing in that, they may get it in dissolutions, fines
or penitentiary sentences, if they prefer. It is "re-adjustment"
that is coming
THE WEST IN THE SENATE.
THE West is fortunate in the class of Senators it has at the
National capital. It is fortunate that it has so many really
able men among those that constitute the "majority"
there. Chamberlain and Lane, of Oregon; Thomas and Shafroth,
of Colorado; Walsh and Myers, of Montana; Newlands and Pitt
man, of Nevada, and Smith and Ashurst, of Arizona, constitute
a considerable part of the administration force in the upper House
of Congress, both in point of ability and in numbers. Among them
are some of the real Senate leaders?strong, progressive and ver
sitile tribunes of the masses. The Republican Senators of the
West?about equally numerous?contain some of the ablest men
in the "minority." Borah, of Idaho, strong, eloquent and pro
gressive; Jones, of Washington, by no means unworthy of his 1
place among the members of the "greatest law-making body;"
Smoot, of Utah, frequently called the leader of the "stand pat"
element, and Warren and Clark, of Wyoming, influential, notwith
standing strong reactionary tendencies, on account of their long
terms of service, are among the Western Republicans; while the
two most "progressive" of the Progressive Senators, Poindexter,
of Washington, and Works, of California, are of the West. They
constitute a strong body of men, all things considered, and their
viewpoints, generally speaking, are Western. ?
These men, while differing as to detail, are prepared to sup
port the administration measure for a government-built and con
trolled railroad in Alaska. And most of them will support, reas
onable, useful and local control, as far as possible, of the resources
of the West. With such men in the Senate and a statesmanlike
administration in the Executive branch of the Government the
West may reasonably look forward to a square deal and an en
lightened governmental policy.
