LOCAL LABOR SITUATION.
WHILE Juneau is crowded with idle men and those seeking
employment should .not come here just now, it must not
be thought that the situation here is unhealthy, or that
there is anything of the mushroom order about the town. The
long, cold spell that prevailed in January caused a water short
age in the mining industry which made it necessary for mining
companies to lay off a great number of men. Other work in con
nection with mining development was suspended in the late fall
until the early spring, causing other men to be laid off for a
few of the winter months. In addition to this, men who have
heart! of the prosperity of the city have been coming to Juneau
on every boat seeking employment that is not here for them.
With the opening of spring there will be more work in Ju
neau and vicinity than ever before in the history of the city.
There will be more than enough, probably, to give employment
to all who are here. However, it must not be forgotten that the
means of travel have placed Juneau very close to the centers of
population in the Coast States, and an over-supply of labor could
very easily occur at any time.
The United States Smelting and Refining company is going
straight ahead with those plans to form a consolidation of Ju
neau mining companies and to install another of the great gold
mining plants of the world, that are collecting here, in a man
ner that causes the residents of this city to indulge in further self
congratulation because they are here.
WHEN President Wilson said that the President and Congress
are not holding office for the purpose of enacting their
own ideas into law but for the purpose of honestly trans
lating the ascertained will of the people into a working National
program he gave a definition to the duties of those acting in a
representative capacity that establishes the genuiness of his de
Many strong men take a different position as to the duties
of representatives of the people in a republic. They assert that
when a man is chosen to office he is chosen to think as well as
to act for those who choose him. Their theory is that the selec
tion of men to make laws and execute them is a sifting process
that gives the people the right to select their own rulers. They
reason that it being impracticable for the people to meet together
or to co-ordinate in any effective manner in the affairs of gov
ernment that republican form of government was arranged so
that they could choose from among their number those to gov
ern them. Their contention is that men thus chosen are selected
because they possess pre-eminent abilities or genius for govern
ment, and that they are selected to carry our their own ideas.
This position is consistent with republican government, and
it is the plan followed in many of the republics of the world, but
it is not the theory of democracy. The advocacy of the demo
cratic theory by Jefferson, and its acceptance under Jackson, when
the convention and party platform system were put into opera
tion. caused this country to be designated by economists and by
statesmen, as Lincoln, a democratic republic. The ascendency
of democracy caused the Republican party founded by Jefferson
to become the Democratic-Republican party before his retirement
from the Presidency, and, later, the Democratic party. The lat-;
ter name was selected by the party in convention assembled at
the suggestion of Jackson when the first party platform was pro
mulgated so that people could vote for measures rather than men.
However, the Hamilton-personal-agency theory of govern
ment has never been without advocates in our country, and for
a few decades it became so strong that people came to say that
party platforms were made to get into office on rather than to
serve as working programs after election. The failure of the
party platform under this regime caused the introduction of the
initiative, referendum and recall in many States?or the appli
cation of more democracy as a cure for the ills of a democracy.
The democratic movement that brought forth the initiative,
referendum and recall?the "back to the people" movement?
finally resulted in the selection of Wilson for the Nation's head
The Republican party of Lincoln was a democratic party, but
the democratic theory of government was necessarily abandoned;
owing to the exegencies of the war that prevailed during his ad
ministration. They were retained in a state of suspension by
those of the Hamilton-personaf-agency school, who came to dom
inate that party, down until this latter day triumph of democracy.
But now there is no doubt but that the people have returned
' to the democracy of Jefferson and Jackson and Lincoln. This
country is again a democratic-republic . That is what Wilson
meant when he said that it is the duty of the administration to
translate into law the ascertained will of the people.
Chairman Houston exercised the traditional eloquence of a
blue grass orator in behalf of Alaska, but his facts came from
one who knows just the same.
