PEOPLE WILL NOT STAMPEDE.
THE people of Juneau should not, and we believe they will
not, permit loose talk about the packing of juries or other
manner of misconduct on the part of those who are serving
the public to stampede them. They should not, and we believe
they will not. impeach the good intentions or capabilities of men
whom they know as well as they know those who are serving
them in the various branches of government here until they have
facts upon which to base their judgment.
We have great faith in the ability and disposition of Ameri
can people to judge fairly and accurately when they know all the
facts. We also believe that they are not nearly so easily fooled
as to the facts as some people seem to think. Too many genera
tions of them have lived in a time when the court of last resort is
the average citizen.
There have been times, however, when people have done in
justice usually because they were misinformed. Men are some
times too busy or too careless to go to the bottom of things. They
depend upon newspapers for their information.
For that reason, the first duty of a newspaper is to publish
the news as it is?to give in plain language, such as all may
understand, the truth about actual occurrences. If the people
have the evidence they can draw their own conclusions and pub
lish them. This does not mean that a newspaper should not form
conclusions and publish them. It does not mean that a newspaper
should not speculate upon probable and possible causes and re
sults of the doings of men. but the statement of the facts as they
are and the speculations, surmises and imaginings should not be
confused or comingled in such a way that readers cannot dis
tinguish between them.
People have passed the fire alrm period in the development
of the new order. They are in the constructive period. They
are not tearing things to pieces so much as they are setting the
House in order, and they know pretty well who is helping them
in their task and who is simply making a noise.
NOT JUST CORRECT.
IN ANOTHER column is an editorial from the New York World
in which it says that the government railroad in Alaska is
being built because it is a case of Government or Guggenheim.
It says the question is whether the State that will be created in
Alaska will be a Guggenheim State or a free State.
That is not just correct. The fact is that it has become a
case of a Government railroad or no railroad at all. The Gug
genheims say they do not contemplate and have not contemplated
for a long time any further railroad building in Alaska. Nor
would any one else build a railroad under conditions as they are.
The suggestion that the Government railroad is to be built
that Alaska may become a free State instead of a Gpggenheim
State is also far-fetched. The people of the West have shown
that they can take care of themselves against the Guggenheims
or any body of capitalists or would-be-monopolists when they
have the powers of government in their hands. It is true
that there was a time when California was a Huntington State,
and when combinations of railroad and other interests owned
Washington, Oregon and other Western States, but that time
The people of Alaska are not afraid but that they can take
care of themselves when they shall have become so numerous
as to be given the right of Statehood. What they want is the'
development that will hasten the day when they will have a
State government through which to take care of themselves.
That is why they want the government railroad.
The Washington Evening Star thinks the United States Sen
ate too slow a place for either Col. Roosevelt or Col. Bryan. If
both were there at the same time, perhaps the Senate would
not be so slow.
RESTORING FREE GOVERNMENT.
WHEN the House of Representatives voted to investigate the
mining strikes in Northern Michigan and Colorado it set
on foot an inquiry of much wider scope. Congress has no
particular duty relative to local labor conflicts, but by the Consti
tution of the United States it is charged with the duty of guaran
teeing "to every Sate in this Union a republican form of govern
The recent troubles in Michigan and Colorado, like those of
a year ago in West Virginia, have revealed issues political and
governmental that were more important than any that pertained
solely to industry. A despotism by mine-owners is as hateful as
one that rests upon military exploits. The man in a distant count
ing room may be as tyrannical as the man on horseback.
A Senate committee's inquiry in West Virginia put an end
to abuses there that ought to be impossible in a Republic. Pro
ceeding with equal vigor, the House committee should score sim
ilar triumphs for free government in two other States.
The Chinese crew of a British steamer that mutinied over a
question of politics must have thought it was sailing through
Now that Japan has discovered the tango, it will not have
much time to worry about its treaty rights in the United States.
