Bishop P. T. Rowe of the Episcopal
church, who has for his field work the
entire territory of ' Alaska, with Mrs.
Rowe, arrived in Los Angeles yester
day on his way home from Washing

dent Roosevelt and the senate the true
conditions of affairs in the district and
ask for some relief. ' : .;,.-'
"Alaska has been treated very shab
bily by the government," Bishop Rowe
said yesterday, at the Angelus hotol,
just before leaving there to deliver
an address , before -the Ebell. club.
"We would have received no-.atten

we have received some slight recog

are coming. . ' :V
"In my talk with the president I pre
sented the true conditions as I knew
them. The government has built no
roads. There can be little or no devel

found far inland, but unless there is a
way of getting in supplies the work
ing of the mines cannot be satisfac
"What has the government done for
the territory in the way of peniten
tiaries and lnaano asylums? Nothing.
We are now contracting with Port
land to take care of our unfortunates.
"One thing given us In the past flvo
years Is a . decent, legal code and the
organization of the country into three
judicial districts. Before 1900 we wor
ried along under the miserable Oregon
code. The war department has been
kindest of all. It has given us tele
"President Roosevelt believed that
something should be done for the ter
ritory, and the senate was also In
hearty accord with improving the con
ditions, but the house of representa
tives was only lukewarm. It did not
see where it was going to get returns
for Ita concurrence with the president
and the senate on the question.
"A year ago there was rather a
gloomy outlook for Alaska, but today
the future looks much brighter. Fair
banks, on the Tanana river, 500 miles
inland from Valdez, . is to become t'io
future gold . producing district of the
territory. The region Is extremely rich,
but access to it Is very difficult."
Bishop Rowe has spent nine years in
the territory, and Is a zealous worker in
anything that pertains to its welfare.
Active, of wiry build, inured to all the
hardships of a life in the Arctic zon<»,
he is a tireless worker in the establish

of a churchman's life in the far north.
In speaking of .the financial assist,

SCORES INTEMPERANCE EVILS
Rev. M. P. Smith Makes Address at St.
"Drunkenness . dethrones man and
takes supremacy from him. It makes
of man a hideous caricature of God's
noblest work. Surely if there is re
joicing in heaven over the one repent
ant sinner, there Is hellish glee in those
that hate God over a drunkard."
These were the sentiments expressed
by Rev. M. P. Smith, C. S. P., last
evening in an address on "The Liquor
Question" at St. Mary's church.
Father Smith spoke to a large congre
gation, outlining the temptations and
evils of liquor. He said in part: '.'': J
"We find in the Holy Scriptures
many times statements regarding this
sin, the greatest of all . evils. The
Scriptures give a warning and judg
ment upon those who let themselves
become victims of this habit. Drunk
enness separates us here and hereafter
from the blessed friendship of the Lord
who created and redeemed us.
"Let • use look upon the effects of
drunkenness upon the body. It un
mans man. Drunkenness takes the
brightness from the eye and the hue
of health from the cheek, robs the
step of its elastic grace and Inverts
the whole order. It makes the soul,
which should be the mistress, the
"Tho cities aro burdened with enor
mous expenses and debts. The amount
of money used Is appalling. It is equal
to the assessed value of tho whole
United States, with the exception of
three states. Drunkenness is no re
specter of persons. It has assailed tho
very priest at the altar and made him
a reproach to the church to which he
has been ordained. A man who is
given up to tho habitual excess of
liquor ceases to be a good Christian."
Father Smith closed with an elo
quent plea for total abstinence.
