President Opposes Territorial
Governm nt for Alaska
In commenting upon the probability
of the reappointment of governor
lira ly, Walter E. Ciark, Washington
correspondent of the P. I. says:
" It has been represented to the
president, however, that the governor
has given an honest administration,
and that honesty, when it can be
found, goes u long way in Alaska; also,
that the governor is an intelligent and
progressive advocate' of the best things
for the territory.
"He has aroused some bitterness in
Alaska by his outspoken opposition to
a territorial form of grvernment; but
this is not held against him by the
pressdent. Mr. Roosevelt believes the
territory should be represented by a
delegate in congress, but he is by no
means committed to the ide% of self
government for Alaska, and in fact be
believes present conditions hardly
justify it. In this respect, of course,
he differs with many intelligent
authorities but in denying the wisdom
of a territorial form of government he
believes he is conserving the best in
ierests of the Alaskans themselves."
