OPPOSITION TO ALASKA BILL COLLAPSING.
THE apparent collapse of the hope of those who have sought to
defeat the passage of the Alaska railroad bill is a natural
result of the tremenduously fine victory for the bill in the
Senate. It is also another evidence of the futility of opposing
anything in Congress for which the administration stands. Suc
cess has followed the President and his policies so persistently
that no one now seriously thinks of interfering with the consum
mation of his plans.
While Alaska cannot afford to forget what those in the Ter
ritory and out of it have done for the advancement of the legis
lation required for the development of the North, it must be 8d
mitted that their battle really was won when Woodrow Wilson
was elected President. The President has been the backbone of
the battle. He grasped the justness of Alaska's demands from
the beginning and had the courage to act upon his convictions.
Because of that the Alaska problem, which was one of the con-i
tributing causes for the failure of the last administration, is ad-;
ding to his fame and popularity.
* V
Gov. Black announced the other day at Dawson that he would
give marriage licenses as prizes to the bachelors who defeated
the benedicts at curling. This caused a wag to ask if he would
have given the married men divorces if they had been victorious.
A LESSON IN MONEY CONTROL.
HOW finance controls in respect to armaments is very well il
lustrated in the case of Brazil. Germany wished to streng
then her Reichsbank gold reserves. She, therefore, bought
international commercial bills in London and in due time called
for the gold. England promptly put up her bank rate and called
upon Brazil to pay up. The stock of gold in Brazil went down to
the extent of $50,000,000.
Brazilian coffee went down with a thud in the Hamburg
market?the great coffee market of the world?and the Germans
were astounded at the fall in the face of poor coffee crop expecta
tions. Germany found some of her best commercial customers
financially pinched, and Brazil put her $15,000,000 dreadnought
in the international market.
Thus did Germany attempt to teach Grandmother England
how to suck eggs in finance, and thus did Grandmother show Wil
liam how to break eggs in the international omelette.
Those Londoners missed a chance for a rare hargain when
they destroyed the city seal that has been in use since 1380 be
fore an American curio collector could get to them.
WHY SHOULD THEY WORRY?
.
THOSE Mexican Federal troops that flew across the border
from Ojinaga into the United States can afford to laugh at
the jeers and anathemas of Huerta, and those of his troops
who have not yet faced the terrible Villa. They, at least, are get
ting three square American meals a day at Fort Bliss. Perhaps
some of those wry faces that are being made at them are due
to envy rather than scorn.
Mayor Mitchel of New York is like Paterson, New Jersey, in
one respect. He is destined to have his name mispelled. Mitchel,
with one "1" is as awkard as Paterson with one "t."
BIG BUSINESS AND THE MESSAGE.
;
(Seattle Sun.)
THE equanimity with which political leaders and the business,
world have received President Wilson's last message indi
cates a wholesome condition in the country. The President
has accomplished what seemed to be an impossible thing?he has
forced all parties to accept his program, in principle, at least.
At the moment there seems to be no disposition in Congress
to oppose measures embodying the ideas outlined by the President i
in his address, and that ought to mean, speedy action by Congress
on the several proposals made by the president.
What is of more importance, however, is the attitude "big
business" interests have assumed toward the program of the ad
ministration. Temperate in tone, yet vigorous enough in langu
age and in general trend, it has caused no alarm, and that fact
may be accepted as meaning that the leading financiers of the
country have decided to accept the president's outlined policies,;
and to put what we -peak of as "big business" on an entirely new
basis.
Things are changing rather rapidly in this country, and
Woodrow Wilson, by wise counsel and safe guidance, is helping
them to change.
They are urging Gov. Foss to establish an Independent party
in .Massachusetts. May be he will, but Foss always has an eye
out for business. It is more likely that he won't.
