MAYOR JOHN RECK.
THE City Council could not have
pleased the people more had it
tried never so hard than it did
when it selected John Reck to be
Mayor. It did what the people would
have done for themselves had they'
been given the opportunity. There is
uo man in this city who possesses,
more general information about Ju
neau or who knows its people better
than John Iteck. nor is there one who
is sounder on business matters, morel
public spirited or unselfishly interest
ed in the city's welfare. It requires
no prophet to predict that he will
make a ue.xcelieut Mayor; it requires j
only familiarity with his record in Ju
The great glee that is exhibited by!
the newspapers and in the political
speeches of those opposing the Demo
cratic administration, because of the
division of sentiment with reference |
to the canal -tolls question, tells its
ow n story. They are not particularly
interested in free tolls, but immensely
so in a chance to divide the party'
that is giving the country the best
administration it has had in a gener
ation. They want the offices.
SPEAKING of the complete change
that the last two weeks have,
brought about in the attitude of
the British people towarcUthe two po-j
litical parties of England, the London
Times says: "This amazing government
has profited by its error." The "error"
was, of course, the determination to;
pass and enforce the home rule bill J
for Ireland, pursuant to the declared i
policy of the Liberal party prior to j
its victory at the polls. It may be
that the Times is right. It is pub
lished n London aud its editors con
sider British politics with all the ad
\antage of first hand information and
long familiarity. However, on this
side of the Atlantic opinion is more
likely to b> that Asquith and his party
and home rule have profltted by thej
"ama. ing" spectacle of the preaching
by the Unionists of armed rebellion
against the government, aud by Union
ist encouragement of sedition in the!
Over here it looks mightily as though >
the "error" was committed by the op
position and not the government, and
that the profit has gone where it of
It is a very complimentary commen
tary upon the personnel of the new
City Council of Juucuu that It has so
many members who possess all the
qualifications necessary to make a kooiI
THE competition among the mem
bers of President Wilson's Cab
inet for first place in the affec
tions of Alaska is becoming keen. If
Congress only does as Cabinet mem
bers have asked it to do, when the
Alaskan of the future looks at the Ter
ritorial capitol building he will think
of McAdoo; wheu he considers the
liberal land laws, the administration
of Federal governmental functions and
the developing railroad it will be the
kindly and handsome face of Lane that
will present itself before his mental
vision, and all those who travel up and
down the coast will bless the memory
of Kedfleld for providing safety to nav
Whenever a political party is driven
to "twisting the lion's tail" for a po
litical issue it is a sign that it Is hard
pressed on domestic questions, which,
after all, concern people most.
SEATTLE newspapers are exhibit
ing a peculiar brand of appre
ciation for the work the admin
istration is doing for the development
of the West?for the opeuing of Alas
ka to development and the restoration
of American principles of government
to the administration of the public do
main. They are giving columns of
space to Representative Humphrey's
campaign literature abusing the Pres
ident and Cabinet and the majority
party in Congress. Probably they
would like a return of the chaotic land
conditions and another long period of
neglect for Alaska such as obtained
when the Republicans were in power
at Washington and Humphrey's cur
ious sort of politics was in flower in
The affirmative vote for the free
tolls repeal bill in the House was made
up as follows: Democrats, 222; Re
publicans. 24; Progressives. 2. The
opposition was: Republicans. 92; Dem
ocrats. 52; Progressives, 18.
