PERHAPS the administration !?
fortunate that the newspaper
opposition to It In Seattle Is of
such small and untruthful character
that It will, tn the end. help rather
than hurt. For Instance, the Post
Intelligencer, commenting upon a de
claration by Secretary of the Navy
Daniels that Admiral Mayo at Tampl
co "committed his government to a
course of action in support of his de
mands" that was "not contemplated
in diplomatic channels." says:
"This country did not back up
his demands, but receded from
them at the mediation confer
The truth is that the country more
than backed up Admiral Mayo's de
mands both in Mexican waters and at
Niagara Palls. The United States
seized and occupied the principal sea
port of Mexico, and the American
flag has been flying over it for nearly
three months. At Niagara Palls this
country insisted that Huerta must re
tire from his office as the price of
a successful termination of the med
iation. How much further would the
Post-Intelligencer have the United
States go in the matter? What se
verer penalty would it have this
country impose on Huerta?
A Berlin department store has fail
ed owing nearly $10,00.000. Is that,
too. due to the American tariff and
the Wilson administration?
"FIGHTING JOE" MARTIN BACK.
ttl ?s 1GHTING JOE" MARTIN, who
f was Premier of British Co
lumbia and author of the
statute which excluded Americans
from the ownership of mines in the
Atlin district more than a dozen years
ago. has returned to British Columbia
and taken up his residence in that
Province. Since leaving British Co
lumbia. more than ten years ago. Mar
tin has had a career as a Liberal
party member of the British parlia
ment. Before going there he served
a.- Attorney-General aud Minister of
Kducallon in Manitoba for 10 years
prior to 1802. and for four years after
ward he represented a Winnipeg con
stituency in the Dominion Parliament
as a Liberal.
What the cause that brought Mar
tin back to British Columbia is not
disclosed, but the chances are. if his
health is good, that he will soon be
in politics again. Perhaps it would
be unfair to speculate upon the prob
ability that he has returned in an
ticipation of Sir Richard McBride's
accepting the position as High Com
missioner for Canada at London and
his consequent retirement from Brit
i ish Columbia politics. However, it is
i not too much to say that he departed
from the Province soon after Sir
Richard -then "Dick" McBride?be
came Provincial Premier and demon
strated his popularitv.
There should be a good attendance
i at the Juneau Democratic club meet
ing tonight. The meeting will take up
the serious work of preparing for the
: primary, which will select representa
; cives of the Juneau Democracy in the
Territorial convention, and that of
determining the sentiment of Juneau
Democrats on the issues that confront
the people of Alaska. These are mat
ters that concern everybody in the
Territory, and every Juneau Demo
crat should participate in the proceed
ings as far as he can do so.
Nothing but hard luck for the rail
roads. First there was no freight at
all. and now there Is more freight
than they can handle. When Is this
persecution to stop?
The objection to the appointment of
Thomas D. Jones to the Federal Re
serve Board on the ground that he is
an unknown man is no longer valid.
