THE SEVEN SENATORS AGAIN.
THE JUNEAU EMPIRE still
continues its defense of the
seven Senators who wrote
the now famous letter to Secretary
Lane. They have failed to answer,
however, the charge that they
were qualifying their official acts
by private acts. As servants of
the people all things they did as
representing Alaska should have
been done official)* and not in se
cret. Opponents of the measure
seized the letter with avidity as
valuable ammunition in their at
tack on the bill. If it had not been
for this disclosure made back in
Washington, no one in Alaska
would have known of the letter.
Yet as servants of the people
what right had they to send a pri
vate letter, officially garbed, on a
public matter. Yet The Empire,
discussing the matter in a recent 1
issue, petulantly says: "Oh, let us
be fair."?Cordova Times. .
Now, once more, be fair. The let
ter that has caused so much discussion
was dated and signed April 30th, the
day before the Legislature adjourned,
and not April 13th, as appears in the
Congressional Record. The Legisla-1
ture had adopted a special rule several
days before that it would not consider
new business. ; 1
The letter was not Intended as ex- J
pressing opposition to a government
railroad in Alaska, and it did not ex- c
press it. It pretended to be, and it c
was. an explanation. It was not out a
of harmony with the official record of ^
the Legislature. |8
We suggest, and wo make the sug- 1
gestion in the same good faith that we
believe that those who make the Cor- jc
dova Times, the Douglas News and v
other newspapers entertain toward all; "
things Alaskan, that they could ac- >u
complish more for the North by devot- c
lng their energies toward building up l'
the Territory than they are accom- 11
plishing in this campaign to destroy "
men who have done and are doing u
their duty as citizens and servants of 0
the people as they have seen and see p
it. If they desire to re-elect Judge w
Wickersham it is their privilege to do c
what they can to that end. If they s
think he ought to be re-elected they ^
ought to support him. But. in that v
case, let them give him an affirmative p
support on his record, and not try to p
make the selection by a process of d
elimination. It would be far more ?l
complimentary to him. more in accord ?l
with right principles, and less likely
to leave a bad taste. icl
The farther south Villa gets with his ^
army the harder he finds the fighting a
?and the harder the fighting the more n
the old bandit seems to enjoy life. If ?
things continue to go as they have
been going he should have the time
of his life when he enters Mexico w
THE RESERVE BANKS. t(
THE criticism over the location of ?
the reserve banks is subsiding Sl
as people are becoming better
acquainted with the situation. The 3
law, limiting the number of them to,11
twelve, made it impossible for the or-:
ganizing committee to gratify the am-1 e
bltions of all of the cities desiring j ?
banks, and the desire to make the
separate banks as nearly equal in size!
as practicable made it impossible to ^
permit the trend of banking business .
to control in each instance.
If area had been considered alone. |
the reserve banks of the large East-j
ern cities would have nearly all of the;
capital. Likewise, if the trend of bank- i P?
ing business had controlled entirely.; ?
The committee considered first of all! Li
the equality of the banking power of g?
the separate regions, and next, the ac-fis
cessibility of the different cities within tb
the regions. | es

The New York World, commenting
upon the dissatisfaction of Northern
New Jersey nud Western Connecticut,
where the most persistent criticism
has been offered, says:
"The organizers, in maklug out
the districts, were undoubtedly
guided to establish as far as prac
ticable an equality of banking
power between the several re
serve banks, and no one had so
strongly emphasized this consider
ation as the advocates of a cen
tral bank. If upper New York
Stato conveniently could have
been attached to some other dis
trict. this would doubtless have
been done, and the Northern New
Jersey and Western Connecticut
banks would then have been In
cluded in the New York City dis
trict. But where else was upper
New York Stato to be placed?

THE TARIFF AND PRICES.
NOW and again one reads an op
position speech or editorial
twitting the party in power be
:ause the "new tariff law has not re
luced the cost of living." They usu
ally point to thet tact that coal has not
teen reduced in price or that wool has
;oue higher since it was put on the
No careful student ever expected or
laimed that the reduction ot the tariff
,-ould materially reduce the cost ot
ving immediately. Lower prices
lust come through the operation of
ompetition, and a reduced tariff was !
tie first necessary step toward restor- '
ig competition. It the supply of coal

p. The best that auy one could reus
nably hope from the tariff was to
lace Canadian coal iu competition
'ith American. But there can be no
ompetition when the demand is as
reat as both countries can supply,
hould the supply increase until the
arious coal mine owners begin com
eting for the available markets it will
e found that the Canadian coal pro
ucers will be able to sell cheaper iu
lis country than they have sold in
in places wnere mere is compeuuuu ]
lere have already been reductions in |
rices. Manufactured woolen goods,
utter and sugar, for instance, have
II been slightly reduced as a direct
i>sult of competition or in anticipation

tore keen when the protection to the
merican producer was removed in
hole or part.
The tariff law was, as the President
as stated, designed as the first step
?ward the freedom of business from
rtlflcial conditions?from the effects
f unwholesome stimulants, from the
jpport of props that held many down
hile holding some up. It was de
igned to put the business of the coun
?y on a normal and scientific basis. |
Lower tariff rates cannot alter the
Efect of the law of supply and de
land on prices. They can and do en

possible for foreign goods to com
ste for the American markets. When
its competition shall become sufll
