At last tho way to tho development
of the Alaskan coal fields is opening,
says the Mining and Scientific Press.
The first great need Is transportation.
Following its euactment, a law pro
: vidlug for the leasing of tho coal lands
' Is on the administration program, and
| a bfll for such an act hus already been
Introduced .in both House and Senate.
The railroad bill Is a good one in
most particulars. Whatover differ
ences of opinion as to government
ownership of railroads may remain,
the system uffords the only way out as
conditions now exist, and If tho gov
ernment is to build railroads in Alaska
or elsewhere we think that public opin
ion Is unuulmous to the effect that the
organization and control of tho work
should be as much Uko that obtaining
at Panama as possible.
On Business Principle*.
There, Col. G. W. Goethals and his
associates made a success because of
the recognition of tho fact that, if the
government is going into business it
must recognize business principles. In
particular, authority must go with re
sponsibility and a definite plan must
be formulated in advance. In the new
bill the whole authority and responsi
bility for building the proposed rail
road lines Is lodged in the President,
and adequate fuuds are made available
from tho first. Plans can be made, and
contracts can be let, with full assur
ance that the money will be forthcom
ing at the time and In tho amounts
Recognizes Pioneers.
It is further provided that the gov
ernment may buy or lease existing
lines, and we are glad to see that some
return, at least, is to be made to the
pioneer railroad builders of Alaska
who have every Justification for com
plaint at the change in the rules of
the game that was made after their
work began. We believe in the active
development of the Territory. We see
no reason why another Scandinavia
with its vigorous civilization, may not
be added to the world, and we consider
it a proper public enterprise to open
the way to such a development. There
is just one feature of the new law
that appeals to us as particularly bad
?that is the provision that no engin
eer may be appointed to a position on
the work at a salary exceeding $3,000
without approval of the Senate.
No Politics Are Wanted.
Possibly this is merely a childish at
tempt to "save face" on the part of
power loving Senators who, having
consented to a big program, are not
quite able to do It wholly and gener
ously. The limitation, however, smells
strongly of hopes for political spoils.
Nothing would moro surely or com
pletely disgust the American Nation
with the whole policy of government
ownership than to have the taint of
partisan politics ovor tho system. That
may be one way to defeat what many
oppononts find It inconvenient to light
Following the railroad bill Is one
providing a leasing system for the coal
fields. We aro already on record as
favoring such a plan. There are many
who honestly oppose It, but It 1b now
generally conceded that such a sys
tem is Inevitable, and we bellevo those
now in opposition will ultimately find
Its disadvantages fower and less Im
portant than thoy now fear. We aro
glad to noto that an indeterminate per
iod of lease is provided, as was urged
by the Mining and Metallurgical So
Must Fulfill Conditions.
Tho leases are to bo for tho whole of
the coal in the ground, and the lessee
continues in possession so long as he
fulfills the stipulated cnodltions. Cer
tain rights of revision at intervals of
twenty years are reserved to the Sec
retary of the Interior, and this Is as
reasonable as the usual right to revise
rentals in the case of ground leases in
cities. Tho amount of royalty, above
a minimum of 2 cents per ton, is fixed
by the leasees through competitive bid
ding. A small but increasing acreage
tax applies during tho period that the
land lies idle before operations begin,
and all funds arising from these leases
are to bo applied to the development,
improvement and betterment of Alas
ka, including railroad building. All,
this is excellent Wo like less the re
striction on acreage, though an allow
ance of 2,560 acres is more liberal than
the old 640-acre limit of the general
coal land law. The most important
feature of the law to which we would
tako exception is that making string
ent provision against any possible con
solidation of claims.
Better to Have Open Way.
It would probably be impossible,
however, to obtain any legislation at
this time which did not Include some
such provision, and It is bettor to havo
a way open than to wait indefinitely
for the best way. The system pro
posed is workable. It has many good
points, and we hope it will be prompt
ly put in operation. Alaska has been
too long neglected.
(Whitchorse Star)
Wo made a dozen breaches just be
yond the ocean's reaches
We climbed nnd clawed and scrambled
o'er an hundred flrce divides!
With a photo to remind us of the dear
ones left behind us
Lot fall the growth of ages In the
shroe of human tides!
Left tho lore of town and city with
their wealth of love and pity
Left the women and the children, and
the womat, of our dreams
Solved the getting and the giving, loft
forays the bond-slave's living
And panned and rocked and sluiced
upon a thousand virgin streams!
Through creek and mountain mazes
you may trace us by our blazes
Where we parted veils of silence, and
beheld new dawns arise!
Let loose the dream of ages, that re
pined in golden cages
Filled to the rim the worlds heart
with gold and gaunt surprise!
By our camp lire's sodden ashes and
our crumbling empty caches
By cabins whore the the-wolves skulk
and sightless young caress
Where the trail for some had ended,
nnd the last great veil was rended
T ie lonely nameless graves?the mile
stones of the wilderness!

Tho Hon. Woodrow Wilson .presi

useful and helpful sense, was one of
Mr. Roosevelt's hobbles. He believed
in keeping the people in touch with
what the government was doing, and
the policy developed a large and whole

of enormous value to him.

Moro than any president of modern
times. Mr. Wilson has developed the
administrative possibilities of the high
office to which the American people
called him.
The attitude he has assumed toward
Congress, Ills frequent and open con
ferences with the law-makers, his
frank advise on legislative policies, and
his open-mlndness concerning his own
Intentions and purposes as the exe

government, have all tondod to make
him one of the most successful chief
executives the nation has over had.

I IIIS simple rule of health is daily called attention to by every doctor in the land, whose first question to
the patient almost invariably is, "Are your bowels regular?" Yet there's not one person in fifty who
^ takes proper care of the bowels. And the result of this foolish neglect is nine-tenths of all ill-health.
If today you are unable to free your body of waste matter at the usual time, or if the act causes straining,
pains and discomfort, don't let that condition occur again tomorrow. Unless your bowels can carry away the
waste materials left after food is digested, decay sets in, the poisons of which, taken up by the blood, increase
the risk of Typhoid Fever, Appendicitis, and many other serious diseases.
In treating constipation, there is a right icay and a wrong way. The wrong way is to take harsh purga
tives which even though they do clear the bowels, cause griping and nausea, injure the delicate tissues, and
so disturb the normal functions as to cause the return of constipation. The right way is to help Nature to
produce natural movement, without pain or discomfort, by using
