CANAL TOLLS QUESTION
BECOMES I'ARTY MATTER
(New York World)
Let no Democrat in Congress think
that he can build himself up by tearing
the President down.
Let no Democrat in Congress think
that he can advance his own politicali
fortunes by discrediting the adminis
tration of his party.
Let no Democrat in Congress think |
that a divided Democracy can com
mand popular confidence at the polls, j
When the November elections are
held, every Democrat in the North j
will have to stand or fall by his party's
record. No man will be judged byj
himself alone. He will be judged by
what hie party has doue and what it
has left undone.
The success that the Democratic
party has thus far achieved has been
brought about by harmony of action
under the leadership of the President
There may be Democrats in Congress
who believe they are better fitted for
such leadership than Woodrow Wil
son. There may be Democrats in Con
gress who think that if the party could
be pursuaded to mutiny against the
President, their opportunity of leader
ship would come next. If so. they are
living in a fool's paradise.
If the Democratic party cannot com
mand public confidence under Wilson's
leadership, it cannot commaud popu
lar confidence under anybody's leader
ship. If it cannot win under him. -it
?
cannot win at all. That applies to
1916 no less than 1914. Every Demo
crat who Is fighting the President
is fighting for Democratic defeat and
for Democratic disaster.
All the elements of opposition to the
President and his policies are on the
side of the Democratic dissention. This
is their opportunity. If they can split
the Democratic party, they see the
way open to the repeal of the Under
wood-Simmonu tariff. If they can dis
credit the President they see the way
open to the repeal of the Ricome tax.
They see the way open to the amend
ment of the Banking and Currency law
for the benefit of Wall Street. They
see the way open to defeat the admin
istration's trust legislation and break
the Sherman anti-trust law. They see
I the way open to the undoing of every
I thing the Wilson administration has
j done. They see the way open to the
restoration of Special Privilege and
its re-establishment iu power,
j All this sordid crew has wrapped
the American flag around it and in the
name of the cash-register patriotism
j is marching against the President. Pub
lic opinion has been manufactured by
the same processes by which Lemuel
Ely Quigg used to accelerate It for the
profit of the Metropolitan traction cor
ruptionists. And this opiniou is daunt
ed by men who are trying to turn it
into dollars and cents for themselves.
The time is past when the Panama
canal tolls bill can be Judged alone
on its economic merits and demerits.
' The time 1m pa3t when It can bo Judged 1
alone on the Issue of treaty obliga-^
Hons. A now issue has been created.!
Is the Democratic party to bo split
by tho enemies of Democratic princl- j
pies? Is a Democratic President to be .
repudiated because he has kept the
faith? Is the Democratic party to
drive itself out of power and sink
back to tho impotent minority In
I which it has found Itself most of the
time since I860 because partisan op-:
poncnts of the party are attempting
10 discredit Its leader for partisan
purposes?

THIS 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, dont 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 way 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

terns cannot stand anything harsh?by \

these tablets eaten just before going to bed will help to restore
your bowels to normal activity at a time when, your body A

of taking that tablet (or say two, if your case is ob- f
stinate),your bowels'iciU move easily and naturally f
in the morning. The use of Rexall Orderlies f
for a few days afterward will restore nor- f .

COLLECTOR PUGH
RETURNS OPTIMISTIC
Things are humming around Ketchl
i kan and the West coast of Prince of .
Wales^ Island, according to Collector
of Customs J. F. Pugh, who returned
to Juneau on the Jefferson Tuesday
front a ten-days trip of inspection. The
cannery men and the fishermen are
getting ready for the approaching sea
son and the country has attracted a
great many mining men from differ
ent sections of the States and British
Columbia.
Mr. Pugh states that Ketchikan Is
unusually lively at this time. The
'town looks prosperous and is filling
up with fisher folk and mining men.
Quite a hit of interest is being taken
by outsiders in the mining enterprises
and prospects of that section. Thq
cannery men are looking forward to
and preparing for an extra good sea
son.
The Granby people are in the fiold
looking for more copper properties,
but have not yet begun shipping from
, Hadlcy.
Sulzer and the West coast also looks
good. Mr. Pugh says, and that he be
lieves that section has a great future.
The mines at Sulzer employ 50 men
and they are shipping from 800 to 1000
tons of copper ore to the Tacoma smel
ter each month. While at Sulzer Mr.
Pugh was the guest of Charles A. Sul
zer. manager of the Sulzer mines.
The barge America was at Ketchikan
enroute to Valdez with 1000 tons of
miscelaneous cargo for the Midas'
mine. There were also 70 men aboard |
the barge enroute to the MUlas mine.,
At Wrangell. as well as other places1
along the line there was great activ
ity noticeable among the cannery men
and fishermen.

PROPOSED ALASKA COAL
LEASING MEASURE
(Fairbanks Tlmon)
Tbo nowB that tho administration
measuro which has for its purpose tho t
oponlng to development of tho Alaska
coal flolds Is certain to be enacted Into {
law In the near future will be wel
comed by Alaskans as warmly as was <
tho^newB as the passage of tho rail
road bill. For It means that one of '
the Territory's greatest resources since .
l\)06 "bottled" by tho arbitrary decree
of President Roosevelt, Is to be placed ,
at the disposal of the people to whom
It properly belongs, In such form as i
will permit Its rightful use and pro
vent monopolistic exploitation. *
Tho Ferris bill appears to have met '
and successfully overcomo all the ob- .
jectlons that have been made against
former leasing bills, and to bo couched ,
In such terms as apparently should bo
acceptable to both large and small op- J
orators. It provides that tho leasing '
of coal lands, other than certain tracts
sot aside for the use of the govern- 1
ment In tho Bering and Matanuska
fields, shall be on a royalty basis of '
2 cents a ton, with an additional grad- ,
ed rental ranging from 25 cents to $1
per acre.
Tho reservation by tho government
of 12,800 acres which Is to be mined
under tho direction of tho President
will act as a check on monopoly; but
this Is more effectively assured by tho i
provision that no person or corpora
tlon Is to be allowed to have an Inter
est In more than 2,660 acres, under
penalty of flno and Imprisonment. The
Department of the Interior agreed with
the American Mining Congress com
mittee, when the latter was trying to
get action on the coal fields, that the
area should bo at least 2,560 acres to
Justify the expense of opening a mine.
Except that the bill embodies a pro
vision that congress is to readjust the
leasing terms and conditions, there is
no time stated for which the leases
are to run, and this is a question on
which there is likely to be some con
troversy. Mining operators insist that
the term of a leasehold should be for
such time as might be necessary to
work out the coal, but requiring con
tinuous work, and few would be satis
fied with a term shorter than thirty
; years.
Delegate IVlckersham would amend
J the Ferris bill with provision that the
leasing system apply only to the high
j grade coals of the Bering and Matan
uska fields, and that tho lignite and
; inferior grades of coal of the Interior
j be thrown open to public entry. He
I also suggested that the coal in the
Matanuska and Bering fields, outside
! of the reserved tracts, be mined under
a tonnage system with a government
royalty, or, instead of leasing the coal
to companies, he would have It fixed
so that any individual needing coal
could mine It himself and pay the gov
ernment royalty of so much per ton.
