Thomas Itlgg, Jr., was asked this
question tho other day In Washington,
"Governor, what's tho matter with
Aln.skn? Some peoplo refer to It as
the most bedeviled, harassed and gov-ernment-pecked
possession of tho Unit

der the Impression that the Alaskan
country was rich in gold, silver, cop
per, coal, timber, lino agricultural
lands and other vast natural re
sources and tliereforo ought to be mak
ing i npld strides In ndvnnccmcnt ntong
all lines. Yet we understand It Is
i.elther progressing nor oven standing
still, but Is actually going backward.
What's tbo answer?"
"There Is absolutely nothing tho
ninttcr with Alaska," was his quick
and earnest reply. "Wo hnvo every
thing that goes to inaku u solid, permanent community.
"There Is, though, something radlcnlly wrong with tho management. Tho
whole government of the territory Is a crn.y quilt.

The Macedonian Cry for Economy
Senator W. II. King of Utah
(Dem.), Is active In any debnto on
matters of economy. Ho said recently
In a debate on tho proposed budget
system, in part:
"Wo have believed that our re
sources were limitless nnd thnt no Im
providence nor extravagance could
jeopardize nor endnnger our future
We hnve regarded our country as vast
In nren and unrestricted In power.
Wo have employed tho microscope.
We hnve Insisted upon doing big
things In n big wny. Wo hnvo op
posed conservation nnd economy nnd
thrift nnd a Jenlous regard for tho
small things whether they wero mate
rial or abstract."
Thin characteristic Is pre-eminently
American nnd has found expression
In our private IIvch. In our business nf
fairs, and In our administration of our
municipal state and national govern
ments. This Iew, which has hecomo
n national unit, has developed a spirit of prodigality and extravngnnce. Wo
hnve not worked Inteuslwly nor applied ourselves with tho scientific and In
vestigating spirit to the details of life.
