Albert T. Bellows, of New York

took the doctors an hour. to get his jaw

The 4ovrrnmeat of Alaska
Governor Knapp, of Alaska, has made
a very full report relative to that terri
tory for the fiscal year of 1S91, and pre
sents a variety of interesting facts. He
devotes considerable space to the ceo
graphy and typocraphy of tbe country,
including its stresm9. spr'ngs, volcanoes,
etc. He says tbe interior of the territory
exhiDits extremes of beat and cold, with
long winters and short summers, and has
a dry atmosphere throughout all sea
sins. Tbe const line from Dixon en
trance to the extreme west of the Alaskan
peninsala, has a mild and equitable and
moist climate. The higher latitudes are
severe. These climatic conditions nat
urally determine the location of the pop
Uoverrjor Knapp has undertaken to
organize an Indian police, but at the
time of his report had only one corps,
consisting or 14 privates and one
officer, the difficulty being to find men
whose efficiency and trustworthiness
would warrant the issue of commissions,
mis is not a nattering picture oi the na
tive Alaskan; but tbe police so far ap
pointed have proved of great value in
controlling the drunken and dissolute
villagers. There is a territorial militia
of 48 men and three officers,
and plans are under way to increase the
"army" by the addition of a company of
These things enter into the sys'em of
government, but more important conser
vators are the educational agencies at
work. There ate 13 government day
schools, of which three are white, and
favorable progress is making, though tbe
absence of a compulsory law is rt get ted.
Tbe missions and churuhes are doing,
perhaps, tbe most effective work. ' Tbe
two distinctly industrial schools are in
bigh favor, and good practical results ere
obtaining. With a view to tbe better
ment of all conditions of government and
tbe development of the territory, tbe pro-
tection of its fisheries, mines, etc.. it is
strongly urged that some sort of action
be taken to perfect, change, or mc cl fy
present methods of jurisdiction It is
thought by many wbo have given tbe
matter consideration that a code espec
ially adapted to the needs of Alaska, em
bracing such additions of government
machinery as may be required, would be
tbe beat thins: at present attainable.
Gov Knaoo is of the opinion this would

iiy of making regulations subject to

offens -s enumerated in the criminal code.
from lietty larceny to murder, seems to
be cr treed up on the docket against nas
tive and foreign Alaskans, it is certainly
desirable that some well denned system
of law should be established

Qov. Knapp says it is "'so Urgely carried
on by temporary inhabitants and non
residents, by such uous'iHl and concealed
metrjotis. tbat it is especially difficult to
obtain full information regardicg it " But
the exports were comput d at $8 941.
515 50. against imports to the value of
$3,252,550. The fisheries, of course, are
the greatest resources, though the miner
al resotroes are develrping unexpectedly .
Altogether Alaska is proving a rich pos
session, and in a few years the United
S ates will have reason to give thanks
for its purchase.
