TO BE MORE THAN DOT’BLE THAT OP ANT OTHER ALASKA NEvVSPAlER. GETTING THE CART RE I-'ORE THE HORSE. At every session of* llu Tenitoriil Legislature we hear people declaring amitiM the tiling ol tech nical and administrative public places by appointment ; i d againsCffcanfening addition:,1 powers and duties upon Federal1 officials and assigning in support of their position that to do these tilings is in violation ol the principle .of Self-go Vermont. Tliofce who arffuW this way are mistaking the shadow ol governin'nt ioi the substance. Sell-government does not depend upon the personnel of tlie public service but uiion the source of authority. When the Governor or tlie Alaska' Koail Commission or any Commissioner or other Federal official Is given work to do by tilt Territorial Legislature lie becomes to the extent o* tlie duties required tlie servant of tlie Territory, an I lie must account to the Territoy fo his stewardship instead of to the authorities at Washington Self government depends almost wholly upon whether the public servants are responsible to the people o Alaska, whether they are tlie servants of Alaska, or whether they are responsible to authorities at Wash ington, servants of tlie Nation. Our problem is not as to whom shall he the servant, but as lo whom servant, tilt all1 lie bo The fact is that by conferring duties on Federal servants and agents in Alaska the Legislature may get co-iopcraUojp.. effiuieney amt economy, that other wise eptild not be secured, and tlie tendency is to commandeer tile Federal service or agency, in par at least, to the service rtf tlie people of Alaska EnalMferfed thought nowhere is in favor of tii election of servants Lo administrative or technics, positions. in municipal affairs it lias been all Ini; completely eliminated in the country, and in th< Plates? for many years tlie tendency has been toward shorter ballots and the selection of public servants by tiifc Governor- or a controlling head The State of Washington recently adopted a Cabinet system having a .single mail at the head of eacli of seven or eight ‘important departments, and the heads of these departments and the Governor con-titute a Cabine: or General Board, to run all the affairs of tlie State All of these men are appointed by the Governor. The only offoicials in the State of Washington that ar. elective are those which are provided for in tin Constitution, and for years there has been more .> less agitation in that Slate for a Constitutional C'ou \ontion for the purpose, among other tilings, of re uueing the number of officials that are elective b; the people. In that direction lies efficient and n sponsible government ROMANTIC AND SUCCESSFUL CAREER ENDS Fred K. Sander, .apiiali •, urt collector, travel " ■clubman, wizard ot nance, hero ol' adventure an* romance, 'dispenser of an him and happiness, died last week in Seattle at the comparatively young age el CO years. His care.-r vv„ ■ a living demonstratiot rd the fact that ihe age of romance lias continued dovvi to tlie present. He lived the life of liis own choosing made- Ilia dreams come true. tic ran away from hi war desire. "d home at Corinth, Miss., where lie war born, when lie was a very young boy, and traveled from city to city, earning his way as a bootblack and newsboy in the cities, as a candy butcher on trains and doing whatever opportunity pn oned, to «ir an honest dollar. He shipped as a cabin boy am visited nearly every seaport in the world. lie hie done all this befor. he left St. lafliis for the Pacific < casi at the ripe age of fifteen years, working hi way across the continent as a candy butcher, and ! e way he learned to be a boe keeper, and worked in that capacity in Sail Fran cisco, until lie hatched out an idea for money makin in tlie hast Indies. He shipped as a cabin boy for * hose Waters, and at tile age of "4 he closed out ill intends tin tv and returned to San Fiancteco it. $118,dim, made k. trading in the Orient. This h< quickly lost in old mining, and again went to sea shipping as stow aid. Ilia ^hip touche.! mi Keatll and while his vess.e was lying in port there in 1*7 lie had a light si . a sailor and had U> go to a hot j'ital. lie* sta d in Seattle to do as much as any one man In the .1. up .cut of that city. He began as a bookkeeper, ■ ••n-ieil as a largo operator mi financial man.lbs and once „t America's greatest collectors o paintings and patrons ot tin* arts. lie was a piont" in the buiidi: g e.i street car lines in Seattle, an one of tlie large.' operators in real estate that city ever had lie • ,| out his street car lines before he had be n in S-.'tb ten years, taking a profit of $400,000, most ot which in invented in real estate and other street cm tile from which his profits were * normous. Mr. Sander- colli, •ion of paintings contained many of tin worlds g,. ■ ea mas;‘"'pieces -one, "Si John Preaching in tin Wilderness " for which h refuged an offer of $<;. .. but the one that he jai/.ii inost « J. Q | painted during tlie Civil W ar time, and Fred Sunder was Hie model. The ui . u|. ,|. In . ;lit-e>ed South ein lioy was then blacking bools and selling news papers in New York, carrying his papers under bis atm with his •‘shine" outfit slung over his shoulder. He got a customer tor a shine, who had leaned against a brick wall and put bis foot on the quickly unslung kit, when the great portrayer of juvenile street life came along ami caught the picture. Years afterward the Seattle capitalist bought the resultant painting, paying a price that would have been a large fortune in any city when it was painted. While he was a very rich man when be died it he had devot 'd his whole attention to money-making Fred Sander would probably have been one of the wealthiest of Americans. lie was a wizard in busi ness affairs. liis mind grasped an opportunity in stantanqpusly, and hi develop'd ideas with mar velous executive abilit' Hut. after, his first Seattle made fortune was realized, when be was yet a young man of 34 or 35, he devoted more than half bis time to travel, the enjoyment ot the beauty places id’ the world, the art galleries, theatres, architecture, and all I that appealed to, bis si me of beauty and bis emo tional nature. Almost always be was accompanied on bis trips by his family, wife, sou and daughter, for he was a very successful family man. His home in Seattle, beautifully 't in Washington J’artk, is one that architects, artist- and novelists would rave about. Although, as far as known, he never attended school a day in his life. Fred Sander—no one ever says Mr. Sander -aci|uirtd an education that included the mastery of several languages, deep knowledge of ihe sciences, familiarity with tlte literary classics of all the ages and the courtley finish of a Chesterfield. With his other activities be was always interested id public matters, and wus prominent in many civc organizations. For a good many years be took a live ly interest in Democratic politics, and at one time about decided to follow a political career, but bis interest in travel intervened and be gave up the idea. It was a full and successful life that Fred Sander li ved-T-full of adventure, romance, emotion, busi nessf and things’ hfeautfful, not to mention, best of all, a very happy family life. His nature was filled with sunshine, cheerfulness, kindliness and happiness He lived the life lliq.t most boys dream. LLOYD GEORGE’S ESCAPE. Lloyd George lias succersfuly negotiated another liairbreadth (scape. Tlie Knglisli Premier is either tlio luckiest or*lar the most skillful of all the War Prime Ministers. He is the only National leader of the war period who still is at the head of his, Government, and his country has experienced more crises and more turbulent times than any of the others. For seven years lie has lived through and ’eei'ii the central figure in the greatest storm period of modern British history. That he lias played a strong impel with great cleverness his bitterest enemy will admit. It is not at all improbable that George's con tinued supremacy lias been due, in part at least, to the fact that things have been so strenuous in Groat Britain and that the people have been afraid to change captains. It is not among flic impossible tilings tl.nl if complete peace and tnunjuility could b<‘ assured Hie British Isles that the people would in sist upon a change of Prime Ministers. The sentiment of the Senators on the Britt Bill was unmistakable. The vote was unanimous. Bryan's plan for ‘^disarmament by agreement if possible but for example if necessary” will undoubt-, edly meet with enthusiastic approval at Tokio. At feast there is one Great American whose talent all acclaim. We might have our differences about all the others but Babe Ruth is hero to all. Alaska’s Population. (Cincinnati Enquirer, i The Census Bureau discloses the fact that Alaska': population has fallen to a lower level than in 1900, having in all about 1(1,000 fewer people than in 1910. But there is no reason for discouragement in thi. situation. Alaska is capable of supporting a groat population Some day millions of indust -ics, happy people will I developing its wonderful resources, ether nations and territories suffered drops in popula tion during the war.
