TODAY THE IRISH RULE.
IT IS St. Patrick's Day. and Alaska,
like with other portions of the
Uulted States, and all that there
in is have been surrendered to the
Irish. And the surrender has been
freely made as we Rive to those who
have just claim to the gift. No day

Of course, the reason why all?old
line Americans and all the worthy
strains of latter day Americans. Jew
and Gentile?give first place among
the imigrant holidays to St. Patrick's
day is that the Irish lead the great
trek from overcrowded and oppressed
Europe to the newly established
American Republic. They were our
first immigrants to come in cargo
lots. And they made good. They loik
a leading part in making the Great
Republic a Greater Republic. Those
that were here when they came and
those that came after recognize the
handiwork of the sons of Hibernia in
the United States, and they feel that
it is good. Therefore, they join fre-lv
in helping them to celebrate, one day
each year, the fact that they are Irish
or of Irish extraction as well as Amer
Another instance of the prevailing
Eastern ignorance of Alaskan condi
tions is told in the difficulty that Al
bert Berry, of this city, has had in try
ing to place an order with a Massa
chusetts manufacturing house. One
might very well believe that there are
more reasons than Wall Street mis
management for the troubles of the
New Haven railroad that have be
come a National scandal. If Eastern
railway agents would get a school
geography of North America and make
themselves familiar with its contents
they might increase their traffic con
WOMEN AND REGISTRATION, j
IF THE women of Juneau are re
fraining from registering because
of discliuation to tell their ages it
is because they have been wrongfully
advised as to what is necessary. No
woman that registers is required to
give her age. nor man either, for that
matter. Women and men are obliged
to say that they are over the age of
21 years, and that is all. Many of
those that have registered as voters?
both men and women?have the words
"legal age" written after their names,
and that is al! that is required.
There is no excuse and there has
been none for all this talk about im
pertinent questions being asked wo
men?unless the talk has been the re-|
suit of more or less crude attempts
The women of Juneau should regis
ter. .They are as greatly interested
in the welfare of the community as
are the men. They are particularly
interested in school matters. They
should not only treat the suffrage that
has been extended to them as a priv
ilege. but it should be regarded as a
A NEW GILL.
THE DECLARATIONS and conduct
of Mayor Gill since his election
to the office of Mayor would
seem to Justify the hope of those who
accepted his campaign promise thnt
j he would give Seattle a different ad
ministration than any he bad ever
been connected with in the past His
appointment to the office of chief of
police of a man who had done as much
as any man in the city to make "Gill
ism" unpopular, one who had de
nounced him from the platform in
scathing words time after time and
opposed him strenuously in every
campaign he had ever made for May
I or?including the one that has just
ended?and his speech last night at
a banquet must be accepted as tokens
of a determination to fulfill pre-elec
tion promises. It really looks as
though it was not the Gill of "Gillisin"
who was elected Mayor of Seattle.
The statement given by Senator Ro
den to Secretary of the Interior Lane
outlining his ideas on the immediate
. legislative needs of Alaska should
make some of the people who have
attacked him in connection with the
railroad bill legislation feel ashamed
FIGHTING WITH BOOMERANGS.
IF THE doctrines of Socialists ever
come into vogue in the country it
, will be because they can stand up
under calm and dispassionate dis
cussion. It will not be through
malicious, villifying and falsifying
attacks on fellow citizens such as
characterize the campaign being con
ducted by the Socialist organ in this
city. The people of Juneau and of
Southeastern Alaskan have known
Charlie Carter, and Harry Raymond,
and Bill Case, and William Geddes and
John Reck, and John R. Willis and
William Britt and the others who are
1 on the present City Council and who
are candidates on the Citizen's ticket
to serve on the next, for many years,
and they know that they are not
i crooks or thieves. They know that
they are square, enterprising and pub
lic spirited business men who have la
bored long for Alaska. They will re
sent the attempt to blacken their repu
tations, and the resentment will be
in evidence in the ballot box on the
evening of election day. Juneau So
cialists are fighting with boomerangs.
Nome is now after a government
railroad. Secretary I^ane probably was
taking into account Western aggress
iveness when he predicted a complete
railroad system for Alaska before the
government quits construction once it
begins in the North.
It is appropriate that we should be
gay with the Irish on their gala day.
No race has contributed quite so much
to the gaiety of our country as the
Irish, and evidence of appreciation is
At that, there will be many an Irish
man to celebrate the Emerald Isle's
holiday over a lunch of lager and lim
burger. Such is the result of the mix
ture of races in the great American
