REPRESENTATIVE HUMPHREY
OF ALL the absurd arguments put
forth against the repeal of the
canal tolls exemption clause,
the most redlculous was that advanced
yesterday by Representative Hum
phrey. of Seattle. Clearly the speech
was delivered for home consumption,
because even one of the obtuse parti
sanship of Mr. Humphrey could scarce
ly hope that there is a single member
of the House of Representatives who
does not fully understand that there
is absolutely no possible connection
between the free toils question and
competition between American and
English and Japanese shipping. The
free tolls clause exemption applies only
to American coastwfse traffic, and Eng
lish and Japanese ships cannot en- j
gage in that. American ships that are.
competing with Japanese and British
shipping in the foreign trade will havei
to pay the same tolls that the foreign
ships pay, no matter what the fate of I
the repeal bill might be. Indeed, one;
would think that Mr. Humphrey has |
greatly over estimated the ignorance
of his constituents if he entertains any
hope that his speech will help him
with the Seattle electorate in the
slightest degree.
rni8 recaus mai one 01 me curious
things in connection with the 20th |
century history of the Northwest Is
the circumstance that Seattle?one of
the most progressive cities of the West
?has kept Will E. Humphrey In Con
gress for six terms In all that time
he has never for an instant shown a
single symptom of real statesmanship.
He has consistently, during the whole
eleven long years of his Congressional
service, opposed to the very best of
his biggoted ability every progressive
thing that has been suggested. Until;
compelled by the force of public opin
ion in his own city to support the Al
aska railroad bill, he has opposed or
remained silent on every proposition
that the people of Alaska have ever'
asked for. The Territorial govern
ment bill for Alaska was secured in
spite of his opposition. He has con
tributed more than any other man on;
earth toward the ill-feeling that exists'
in Alaska toward Seattle, not because
of any particular ability?because he
possesses little?but because the peo
ple of Alaska have felt that they have
had a right to demand the services of
Seattle's Congressional representative. I
and they have never had it He has
. persistently and everlastingly opposed
Alaska's representative In Congress in
all that he has done or tried to do for
the Territory.
Mr. Humphrey's Congressional car
eer has been devoted to three things:
(1) Abusing Democrats, Progressives.
Socialists, and Independents; (2) ex
tolling the virtues of the old standpat
Republican party, depending upon the
brute force of (he Republican majority
in his district for his reward; and (3)
l securing appropriations for the Brem
ton navy yard and the Lake Wash
, ington canal.
' If Seattle would cement the good
feeling that is beginning to develop
between that city and A'aska it will
avail itself of the first opportunity to
retire this worse than useless and un
ornmental member of Congress to prl
J vate life.
Last night at Seattle, since the fore
going wns written. Mayor Hiram C.
I Gill took occasion to repudiate, in be
half of the citizens of his city, the ab
| surd attack of Representative Hum
phrey on the President, and said that
Seattle is not at all proud of Hum
phrey anhow. Mayor Gill is doing his
level best to demonstrate that he has
caught up with the times.
The multiplicity of the "reasons" at
tributed to the President by the oppo
sition for wanting the canal tolls ex
emption clause repealed is indicative
of the confusion that has resulted from
over-anxiety for campaign material.

neau needs your service.
Another day has passed and there
has been no attempt to make the
charges against the Juneau municipal
administration definite and certain,
nor has any proof of the general charg
es been submitted.
Secretary of the Interior Lane has
caused a beautiful body of water in
the Glacier National Park to be named
Lake Ellen Wilson for the wife of the
President?a happy compliment to the
first lady of the land.
At the suggestion of President Wil
son a bill will be presented to Con
gress to make Col. Goethals a Major
General as a reward for his work on
the Fanama canal.
At least the Panama canal tolls fight
demonstrated who is who in the Dem
ocratic party. His name is Wilson
and his right bower'3 name is Bryan.
