ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
PUBLISHED BY THE EMPIRE PRINTING COMPANY JOHN W. TflOY. Editor and Manager SUBSCRIPTION RATES: One year, by mall. In advance ?..|10.00 Six months, by mall. In advance, 6.00 Per month, delivered .... LOO Entered as second-class matter November 7, 1912, at the postoffice at Jnnean. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1879. SENATOR ROOT AND THE SHORTER BALLOT Senator Root, admittedly the strongest man in the New York State constitutional convention, won his fight for a shorter ballot only in part He lost the At torney-General. He urged that only the Governor, Lieu tenant-Governor and the Comptroller be elective. He went so far as to favor the abolition of the office of Attorney-General rather than to have him elected by the people. He said that if he were Governor of New York he would rather have no Attorney-General than to have one that was not answerable to the Governor. He has stood first and last tor fixed responsibility in government However. It appears that the constitution that will be submitted to the people will provide for tho election of the Governor, Lieutenant-Governor, Comptroller and Attorney-General. The State Treasurer, Engineer. Su perintendent of Education, lnsufhnce Commissioner, various inspectors, commissions and heads of all other departments will be appointed by the Governor, If the proposed constitution is adopted. Senator Root won an important fight for the self government of municipalities. This has been one of the time-old bones of contention In New York. The State has insisted upon retaining a control over New York City. In this fight. Senator Root espaused the cause for which Tammany has contended for decades. He urged the right of New York City to govern herself ir respective of whether she did it well or ill, and he is said to have won a substantial victory, but not so great as ho had hoped. Another contest of great imporiance in new ivn State is yet to be fought out?and that Is the question of representation In the State Legislature. New York City contains a clear majority of the population of New York State, but the majority against her in the State Legislature is large. The people "Up-State" havo in sisted upon retaining control in the Legislature. The metropolitan delegation in the Constitutional convention contend that representation in the Legislature should be based upon population. If they win that, and the Leg islature abides by the constitution, greater New York will have a legislative majority hereafter. "Up-State" members of the convention contend that territorial area should be taken into account in the distribution of leg islative representation. Whether they will be able to hold out against the incisive arguments that are being advanced by Senator Root and others that government is for people rather than acres remains to be seen. While these matters are all regarded as Important, heretofore they have been subordinate to the shorter ballot contest. To this more than anything else Sena tor Root has given attention, and. apparently, the con vention has contracted the habit of giving first place in its deliberations to whatever happens to be on Sen ator Root's mind. "TURN ABOUT IS FAIR PLAY." The Seattle Times says Alaska is now furnishing Washington State with officials in addition to the oth er good things that have gone to Seattle from this Territory. This statement is based on the fact that since the appointment of Mrs. W. A. Holzheimer to be one of the Washington commissioners to the Panama Pacific exposition, her husband, one of the best known lawyers and Democratic leaders ofSeattle, has become a resident of Juneau. No doubt the novelty of the sit uation appeals strongly to those on the Outside. It is also novel to Alaskans. But after all. Washington State has nothing about which to object. That State has furnished many officials to Alaska, and there is an old saw which runs that "turn about is fairplay." However, there Is another special reason why Wash ington has no grievance. Alaska is furnishing the State of Washington a most gracious as well as talent ed official. In this Instance, at least, the obligations are all on the side of the State which Mrs. Holzheimer is temporarily serving. SHIPPING BUTTER TO AUSTRALIA. Last winter and the winter before American high tariff papers were commisserating with the farmers be cause Australian butter was shipped to the United States and sold at prices less than it could be made in this country. It wa3 all due to the Underwood tariff, of course. But the whirligig of time has changed things. This summer, which, of course, is Australia's winter, butter is being shipped from the United States to Aus tralia. In other words, things have worked about in such a way that American farmers are selling their sur plus while it is fresh, instead of carrying it in cold storage, and in our winter season we can buy from the summer oversupply of the Antipodes. If this is a result of the removal of the artificial barriers to commerce the result might be fairly satisfactory in the end to both producers and consumers. - CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS. The Mining and Scientific Press prints a diagram showing the fluctuations of business in the United States for the last eight and a half years. It shows that the low point in that time was reached early in 1908, when it was more than 40 per cent, below normal. There was a quick recovery, however, and at the beginning of 1909 it was nearly 40 per cent above normal. A gradual decline set in almost immediately, and the tendency was downward until it was 20 per cent, below normal at the beginning of 1911. The beginning of 1913 showed it 20 per cent, above normal again, when another de cline started and continued until the beginning of 1914, when it started to gain sharply and continued until the war started and sent it to 20 per cent, below normal once more. Since the beginning of the present year it has been advancing at a rapid rate, and had reached within five per cent of ndrmal at the first of July with the advance continuing. "While I did not vote for him, President Wilson is my President and I am supporting his foreign policy," said "Uncle Joe" Cannon, and by the remark he added to tho list of his admirers more than he has done by any remark for a long time. It might he a good plan to pass up the award inj of the Nobel prize tor this year, and make It a "double header" next yoar. It might add to the Inducement^ toi some of those heads ot European Nations to enter i contest for It Huerta may come to regard himself as ono of th< poople who did not know when to let well enougt alone. When The Colonel said that Got. Johnson was hli choice for President he probably meaqt his second choice. New York City may yet get big enough to overconn Albany rule by taking the state capital on as a suburb "INVISIBLE GOVERNMENT." (New York World.) Some think that Ellhu Root exaggerated when h< said that for forty years our Stato Government has beer as representative as the Government of Venezuela." The Brooklyn Eagle, for instance, calls this "hyper bole;" In a passage quoted elsewhere it says our Gov ernors have been pretty free of bosslsm; Flower and Morton because they were rich; Hill and Odell because they were bosses themselves; Tildon, Cleveland, Roose velt and Glynn as strong men. Higglns "had much -ol Independence." Hughes "defied everybody" and "won out." For the record, it is wortn wane to repuui uiai the "hyperbole" is not Mr. Root's. His picturesque phrase merely drives home the truth. Since Tiklen's war on corrupt bosses, no Governor of New York has been able to do his best, free of boss es. Of the meaker men the converse statement would be absurd. Hill dealt with other bosses, and was in the end drowned by them. Odell was Governor-boss,; but he had to satisfy the lesser chiefs. Cleveland dealt with Crocker frankly; even asking him to keep Thomas F. Grady from Albany for his "personal comfort." Roose velt promised before election "on all matters of import' ance (to) consult Senator Piatt as leader of the party," kept his pledge fairly, for an impulsive man, and was "shelved" in the Vice Presidency by Piatt against his own impotent protests. Huges was renominated in 1908 because he was necessary to the national campaign, but driven out of politics in his second term?a calamity from which his party has not recovered. So much for "Invisible Government" affecting Gov ernors. It affects Legislatures by rewarding pliant tools and denying nomination to men of independence. It affects State Departments by naming at "the tail of the ticket" the creatures of bosses, who use the busi ness offices of the State as nests for patronage, and sometimes as lairs for jobbery. Toward "Invisible Government" the duty of the Con stitutional Convention is fortunately clear. It is to leave the Direct Primary for legislative action under the pres sure of public opinion. It is to reorganize the offices of the State for business efficiency and responsibility to the Governor, and through him to the people. It is to cut oft the "tail of the ticket," in which bosslam has its will of the departments by tbe Short Ballot. Organize a business system for the State, headed by a Governor who can govern through control of the executive departments, and we shall have taken a long step toward the abolition of Invisible Government THE HANDICAP OF TANANA (Fairbanks Times.) One of the chief obstacles in the way of more ex pensive operating in the Fairbanks district is the ex cessive cost of fuel. The high price of provisions and other supplies is a burden which has Increased mater ially since the early days of the camp, but the fuel prob lem is one which renders operations extremely hazard ous. and in many cases impossible. This is a condition which should not exist in any part of Alaska. There is an abundance of water power in nearly every district, and vast quantities of coal are scattered over the Territory, awaiting development. With either of these sources of cheap power made available, the number of working mines would increase rapidly. There are many hard rock properties adjacent to Fair banks and thousands of acres of placer ground through out the Tanana Valley which can be worked profitably under more favorable conditions. There are also many idle claims of known value on the nearby creeks which will contribute largely to the output of the camp when ever this single Item of cost'ls reduced. But until we have cheaper power we cannot hope for material improvement in local conditions. With the cost of wood Increasing annually, and the area of the richer paystreaks diminishing steadily, we cannot reasonably expect increased activity; we cannot, in fact, hope to maintain an even prosperity. The camp is declining and it will continue to decline until cheap power comes to take the place of the present expensive method of op erating. This is a condition whtcn at once myites itseir ap parent to newcomers, especially to men familiar with modern methods of operating. They realize the possi bilities of low-priced power, and while they may not know the extent and valuo of the gold-bearing area ad jacent to Fairbanks, it does not take them long to grasp the importance of lessening the power burden under which the operators of our district are compelled to la bor. They realize, perhaps, more than we do ourselves, the need of improved working conditions. The subject is one requiring publicity?lots of pub licity?much more than we can give it through the lim ited channels at our command. We want the mombcrs of Congress to know that a central power plant is as im portant to Interior Alaska as the railroad which the gov ernment is now constructing; we want them to be made aware of our needs so that they may act intelligently on the question when it comes before them for consid eration, as it undoubtedly will during the next session of Congress. Eugene N. Foss's determination "to lead the popu lar movement" as a Republican candidate for Governor shows that the old spirit of the Pilgrim Fathers has not yet departed from Massachusetts. Whenever there is a popular movement Eugene N. Foss is prepared to lead it on any ticket on which he can get the nomina tion. In a State paved with monuments of self-sacri fice. there are few records of more persistent self-sac rifice than this.?(New York World.) It Is reported that a secret agent of the German Em bassy approached Samnel Gompers and offered to make him independent for life if he would procure strikes at arms plants. When is a man Independent for life if he Isn't when he is the head labor leader?? (Louisville Courier-Journal.) Since "Freedom shrieked when Kosciusko fell," her voice has been little heard in Poland. But between the Kaiser's and Czar's promises of autonomy she may be heard from in another tone when either is able to "pro duce the goods."?(New York World.) "A number of our people came here from Europe to escape militarism," says "Representative Hay. A few of them have apparently forgotten that little clrcum stance.?(Chicago Herald.)
