THE GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE.
Continued from page two.
Thero arc important questions to
be weighed by you in tho considera
tion of this subject. Should such
local governments be established in
communities that do not asked for
them? Should tho whole area of the
territory be ocuupiedliy such govern
ments, or should experiments be
made in one or two localities before
going further? What will be the
approximate ottrden of tho aggre
gate taxation of tho city or county
uid tho territory on the tax payer?
How will the small proprietor bo
affected by such combined taxation,
and by the probable greater string
ency of municipal regulations? These
questions arc better answered be
fore than after the character of
such corporations is finally" qttled.
Probably the most satisfactory
method of conferring s'ucji privileges
is by means of a general statute,
stating the conditions", precedent
to the cstablmhmcnt of such govern
incuts, and tho principles and limita
tions to be recognized in their organ!
zation, under which any community
within the conditions may prooced
to acquire corporate existence
whenever it1 sliall so desire.
Should the Legislature find un
able, at' tins session, to agree poun
satisfactory legislation in this mat
ter, it would doubtless facilitate the
progress of the work m the future
if it should mako provision for the
appointment and adequate pay or
a commission of several persons to
prepare a general scheme for both
county and city government, and
report to the next regular session of
The excutive is in correspondence
Federal Government in regard to
tho temporary services of an expert
forester to examine the forests of
the territory, and advise the Govern
ment on questions pertaining tO' their
preservation, the need of rcforest-
ng, and the extent to which deforest
ing may be safely permitted. The
Bureau favors sending one of its
own skilled foresters as soon as one
can be spared. Tho territory will
however, be required to pay his ex
penses and a reasonable salary. An
item has boen,p'Iaced in the estimates
for this purpose
The plan of the Department of
Agriculture at Washington to esta
blish an, agricultural experiment
statlon( here is ono of great impor
tance to the territory. Jsucn a sta
tion, conducted by trained men
will be of inestimable value to our
agricultural population in testiug
the capabilities of various plants
producing food, fibre and other
valuable products in our climato and
soils, and in introducing scientific
methods of cultivation. The small
farmer will be especially benefited
bp such experiments, and it is to
the prosperity of the small fanner
that much of our social and political
advancement will depend. Our own
Department of Agriculturo and
Forestry will work with such a sta
tion in promoting the development
of our agricultural resources.
