THE ADMINISTRATION AND
ALASKA.
THE President and Congress have
kept faith. They have fulfilled
their promise to give us a railroad,
and they have given us another token
that we may depend upon the adopt
tion of the other laws. necessary for
the development of Alaska.
The administration has done well
by Alaska thus far. It has done so
because it has applied the principles
of democratic government to the Ter
ritory. It has given the people of the
North that which they would have.
It has permitted the people to decide
for themselves, and that is democracy.
It has. also, with the one exception
of the Second Judicial Division, given
us Alaskans to serve in public office,
and they have been Alaskans who are
democratic Democrats?big. broad and
competent officials who have lived
long in the North, who know the coun
try and its needs, and they are making
good just as all Alaskans knew
that they would.
The administration and its repre-'
sentatives in the North are doing their
part to create confidence in Alaska in
the party that is in power. They are
demonstrating that it is a party of per
formance.
In doing this they have created an
obligation that members of their party
in Alaska must meet. Northern Demo
crats must rise to the occasion and
meet the demands of the broader cit
izenship that inevitably will come with
greater development. They owe that
much to the administration that has
done so much for the Territory, and
they owe it to Alaska and their fellow
< './ens of the North.
President W'ilson and Congress are
fast bringing about a condition that
will make it unpopular to complain!
<>;' the Nation's treatment of Alaska.
They are eradicating the Alaska prob
lem.
THE PARTISAN SIDE OF it.
Representative will
K HUMPHREY and other par
tisan Republicans would like to
have people think that Great Britain
has put something over on the Wilson
and Bryan administration of our for-1
-tn affairs because the latter are ask
ing Congress to repeal the bill giving
American coastwise ships the free use
of the Panama canal. They point to
th- advantage promised American
ships that the President and Secre
tary of State are asking to have with
drawn. However, the matter has
been made quite plain to the people, i
and it is not likely that they will be i
fool* d. They understand that, so far
as the diplomatic side of the contro
versy is concerned. President Wilson i
and Secretary Bryan are only asking *
that the United States keep in good
faith a Republican made treaty. Dem- i
ocrats had no part In negotiating and i
concluding the Hav-Pauncefote treaty.: ?
nor had they anything to do with the,1
buccaneering expedition that gave it t
life. Both the treaty and the subse
quent rape of Colombia, through which i
we acquired the Isthmus of Panama 1
and created somehting for the treaty l
to apply to. were Republican escap
ades. However, at the time the treaty
was made the Republicans spoke for
the Nation. Their promises were the <
promises of the American people. The I
present administration simply asks f
that the United States make its plight
ed word good.
Mr. Wilson and Mr. Bryan have an i
old-fashioned idea that among Na- '
tions as among individuals it is worth
while to be square. The average
American cltien will not look upon
that as evidence of weakness.
Really, Alaska IS a part of the
United States. We suspected it would
come to that when we heard that Wil
son had been chosen President, and
the suspicion has been growing in in
tensity as time has sped its course.
THE DIFFERENCE.
THE Juneau Empire rakes
Archdeacon Stuck over
the coals for sticking
his saintly nose into the rail
road controversy, but stands
manfully by the seven sly
Senators. The Empire's as
pirations are more political
than religious. ? Douglas Isl
and News.
Wrong again. The Senators were
trying to help the people of Alaska to
get the railroad they desired. The
Archdeacon was quoted as saying they
did not need the railroad.
While Americans have often griev
ously offended our Canadian cousins
by referring to the Klondike as being
in Alaska, here come an Eastern Ca
nadian paper that probably has no
geography in its office. The Toronto
Saturday Night refers to Rex Beach
as a writer of Klondike stories.
THE LUCK OF FAIRBANKS.
F HI DAY, the thirteenth, is a day
when one's thoughts turn lightly
to superstitions, anil it is easy
to think of omens, the element of
chance, the turn of luck and things
like that. That, in Alaska, always
means the consideration of Fairbanks,
the child of good fortune among North
ern communities. Founded by chance,
good luck has attended the place
throughout its brilliant career.
Fairbanks was established where
it is by Capt. Barnetto because the
steamer on which he was ascending
the Tanana river could get no farther
up stream, and, winter approaching,
the steamboat master, fearing that he
would be unable to reach the Yukon
again that season if he granted the
request of the trader to take his car
go back, dumped the unwilling city
builder on the banks of Chena slough
with his stock of merchandise. That
winter placer gold was discovered on
Pedro and Fairbanks creeks, and the
next summer on Cleary creek. The
trading post became a city o\'er night
and people came to turn millions of
gold into the channels of trade annu
ally. One gold-producing creek after
another was discovered just as those
which had come before had passed
their zeniths. Then, as the placer
camp was waning, quartz gold was dis
covered. and coal.
Now, while all the coast towns are
anxious to the point of nerve ruina
tion over the question of the location
of the tidewater terminus of the gov
ernment railroad, at Fairbanks it Is
a case of "ish-ka-bibble." That place
will at least get one end of the rail
road, and all that it asks is that the
road be built as straight as possible
from the coast to the town.
For the second time this year toduy
we have the Friday the thirteenth
combination, so beware. If one gets
through today all right he should be
safe until Friday. Nov. 13th, at least.
"We have linked Alaska to us by a
more friendly tie." said President Wil
son. Yes, indeed. Alaskan can now
sing "Good, Old U. S. A. with spirit.;
