Washington. Nov. 5. Dr. W. II. Evans
and Benton Killin, Commissioner ap
pointed to inveetegate the agricultural
possibilities of Alaska, have submitted
their reports to Sretarycf Agriculture
Wilson. The reports agree that whil
comparatively little agriculture exists
there It Is poMe that enough of cer

sustain a cocsidVraMo population, pro

tivated areas ia Alaska are conrtned to
small kitchen gardens in which are
grown many rf our earlier and harlier
vegetables. Stm-k raising la carried on
to a very limited extent.
The possible extension of the pastur
age and gardening area is quite con
siderable. Estimates are made of an
expense) cf SJOO per acre In preparing the
soil for cultivation. What agriculture
there will be in Alaska will lie sub
sidiary to fishing and other industries,
according to Killin' separate report.
Fishermen will locate on Alaskan lands
and make homes, and these will supply
