BOURBON'S ALWAYS WITH US.
ONE OF the incongruous things
in connection with this ago of
progress is the constant pres
ence of the bourbon?the man who
never forgets and never learns. Ev
ery now and again we meet him. He
is the man who thinks reform move
ments are passing fancies rather than
processes of evolutiou. With smug
self-satisfaction he revels In thoughts
of the day when the old order will re
turn. He is always ready to believe
that the time is about at hand again
when a few "superior" men can gath
er in a back office or at a club table
and arrange the destiny of a State or
a Nation. He clings to the idea that
people are "coming to their senses"
and beginning to realize that they are
not capable of managing their own
affairs and are about ready to syndi
cate government authority again. He
sees just ahead the repeal of the di
rect primary and the initiative and
referendum laws and all the other
laws that have come into effect since
the beginning of the "back to the peo
In Europe the bourbon always sees
the republics about to become man
archies. Just now he is very active
over there in predicting that the
United States will soon tire of self
government and select a King. He
thinks he sees in the controlling lead
ership of the present President in this
country an admission of the failure of
rule by the masses, and a disposition
to place an expert at the head of the
The bourbon cannot see that Wil
son's leadership is unquestioned be
cause he. going to the White House
fresh from the people with instruc
tions from them, is striving with
might and main and success to trans
late the people's desires into law.. No
bourbon could learn that because a
bourbon's nature prevents him from
learning anything. For a century and
a quarter European monarchists have
been predicting periodically that the
American republic is about to become
a monarchy. Yet today the country's
institutions contain more pure democ
racy thau ever before.
Of course the bourbon is never a
careful student of history. If he were
he would realize that people never
surrender rights that they once se
cure. He would realize that fail
ures of self-government do not result
from recessions by the people from
advanced positions. Failures have
come only when combinations have
succeeded in cheating the people and
usurping powers. The combinations
and their methods in turn are defeat
ed when more democracy is applied
to the government.
It is amusing to bear the Seattle
Times trying to prove that Mayor
CotteriH's Senatorial ambitions have
been blighted by the recent election
in that city and to realize that a new
c:ty charter is now being formulated
by a body of men presided over by
Judge William Hickman Moore and
among whom sit Dr. Eagleson. E. F.
Blaine. A. V. Bullion. Thomas H. Bol
ton, W. M. Calhoun. Thomas S. Lippy,
Elmer E. Todd and C. J. EricKson, an
' chosen to office at the election re
J. Y. C. Kellogg. Charles W. Doyle.
NEW SIDE TO CANAL TOLLS
GOV. LISTER, of Washington, has
Injected a new Idea into the dis
cussion concerning the repeal
of the Panama free tolls provision. He
contends that American ships cannot
compete on an even basis with foreign
ships. Therefore, he says. British Co
lumbia lumber, which can be shipped
to Eastecn American ports in foreign
vessels, will have au advantage over
Washington and Oregon lumber which
must be shipped, if at all. in American
bottoms. Gov. Lister thinks the Amer
ican lumberman of the Pacific coast
should be given an opportunity to
compete on an even basis with Can
adian mills. He suggests, as possible
remedies, that American lumber car
riers have their canal tolls rebated to
them or that foreign ships be permit
ted to engage in traffic between Amer
ican Atlantic and Pacific ports.
The suggestions of Gov. Lister arc
worthy of more than passing notice.
The same causes that have operated
to force American shiping out of for
eign, commerce would operate to give
Canadians an advantage over Ameri
cans in shipping from ocean to ocean
through the Panama canal. However,
so far as the lumber trade is con
cerned, the objections are more theo
retical than anything else. The fact
that American mills have secured
many big lumber contracts during the
last few years in Western Canada in
competition with the British Columbia
mills indicate that the Puget Sound
lumber industry is not suffering from
The declaration of the head of the
house of Guggenheim in favor of the
government ownership of railroads,
telegraphs and telephones was a cruel
pronouncement just now when Pin
chot is about to launch his Pennsyl
vania campaign. It will necessitate
a delay in New Nationalism activities
until a new scare-crow can be manu
If Secretary Lane remains at the
head of the Interior Department long
enough and keeps his health Alaska
will eventually have a comprehensive
railroad scheme. The statement given
out by him the other day shows plain
ly that he believes the railroads au
thorized by the recent legislation are
but the beginnings of the system that
will be built in the North.
The interest the business men of
Juneau are taking in baseball and
other outdoor sports means that this
work of city building shall not be all
a matter of dull care. We shall have
some healthful play as we go along.
The success of the Juneau Commer
cial Club's canvass for members is
encouraging. Juneau is preparing to
retain first position in the Alaska pro
cession that is about to march at
, double quick time.
FORMER ALASKAN WEDS
Clarence L. Andrews, formerly a
deputy collector In the United States
customs service in Alaska at Skag
way and afterward at Eagle, was mar

proaching marriage was made by Mr.
Andrews in a letter received by W.
H. Case, of this city, in the last mail
from the South. The letter was dated
at Oakland. March 6th.
Mr. and Mrs. Andrews were to leave
for the East, via the Southern Pacific,

gone about a month.

turn to Alaska during the coming sum
