NEED FOR DIRECT PRIMARIES '
AS THE people of Alaska approach
the time when they are to make
selections of candidates for Del
egate to Congress and members of the
Leglsalture. the handicap resulting
from the lack of a primary election
law is becoming more and more in ev
idence. The inadequacy of the self
government in this Territory?the ab
sence of necessary authority on the
part of the Legislature and the worn
out and thoroughly discredited meth
ods of selecting candidates for office?
is the chief drawback to harmouious
and progressive action on the part of
The convention system is being put
aside everywhere as a failure. It has
been discovered that it does not oper
ate in a manner that is representa- i
tive of the people. It offers too many
chances for defeating the will of the
masses. It too often prevents the pre
sentation of men and issues to the peo
ple on election day in such manner as
to get a full and fair expression of the
popular will on things of real import
ance. It contributes to the creation of
fictitious issues. It complicates rather
than simplifies problems of greatest
The situation in Alaska is particu
larly unpropitious for the operation of
the old convention system. The Ter
ritory is large, and the people widely
scattered. In the past conventions of
all parties have been fairly well at
tended by those of the section immed
iately contigious to the convention
city, but other sections have been rep- i
resented by a few delegates with many j
proxies. It is not strange that bick- i
ering and discontent have followed I
The time Is at hand when Alaska i
should have a primary election law.!
Circumstances make it necessary for :
us to put up with the convention sys-1 i
tem this year, but we should never i
again have a nominating convention in |

infantry; 918 artllelry and 977 cavalry. ,
In addition to this little army he has

increased to 11.000 men.
A MISGOVERNED STATE.
(New York World.)
ON THE principle that charity
should begin at home. Ameri
cans ought not to ignore the
war now in progressiug in Colorado.
In some respects it presents issues]
of more importance to this country,
than any that have been raised in Mex
A battle between striking miners
and State troops in which many lives
have been lost could not have taken
place if all the right were on one side i
and all the wrong on the other. The
trouble is of long standing. It pro
ceeds from a determination on the part
ot labor to organize. It has been in
tensified by the enrollment of the State
on the side of the Rockefeller Inter
ests. which "are willing to sacrillce
all their Investments In Colorado" rath
er than yield on this point.
If reason, humanity and true Ameri
canism were intluential in controlling
public opinion lu that commonwealth,
there would have been peace with
honor in Its mining regions long ago.
DISTRUST AND JINGOES.
ONE of the causes for the feeling
of distrust of the United States
among the Latin American Re
publics is that American Jingoes are
doing their best to prove to them that
we are not what we pretend to be. The
President says the United tSates will
never seek another foot of territory
by conquest, for instance, and then
Senator Borah, while all the jingo horde
applauds, says "if the American flag is
once raised in Mexico it will never
come down again."
That is Just what South America
and Europe think of much of the fine
words that come from the United
States. They measure us by the
standard of the old diplomatic lang
uage that was made to conceal and
not express purpose. They think we
give hollow promises for favors. They
judge us by our jingoes.
It is not strange that this is true.
How can we expect foreigners to have
higher regard for our plighted word
than our own people have?
The record the United States is try
ing to live down?to be specific, the
rape of Colombia and conquest of Pan
ama and the tolls exemption?makes it
all the more dillicult to convince oth
ers of our good faith in the face of the
Imperialistic shrieking of the jingoes
and those who would discredit the ad
Among Amefica's greatest enemies
are her jingoes?the "strong arm and
Iron heel" heroes who would send oth
ers to the front to die for their
Strange as it might appear to those
ivho have looked for war in every un
favorable breeze that blows from the
Orient. Japan was the first of all the
S'ations to anuouncc her strict neutral
ty after 'he United States had taken
