In the 36 years that elapse!
while it was operating under territor
ial government there were two extra
sessions of the legislature. One o
these was to provide ways and mean* to

ing the white settlements on Puget
(ouivd, and the other was after the ter
ritory had '.acquired a population ex
ceeding a quarter of a million souls ami
when the business had become so great
that a 40-day s' session was found to be
too short a time for the legislature to
complete its work in. The one extra
session was at a time of extreme peril,
and the other after the territory had
become amply able to bear the expense.
Moat of the legislatures in Washington
territory turned back into the federal
treasurv an unexpended balance of the
appropriation made by congress for leg
isla'tve expense?. In U? this unex
pended balance exceeded M000.
The Daily Alaskan believes that the
administrations of Alaskan municipali
ty and the commercial development
of the district have disclosed the peo
ple of Alaska t ) tx?sess a high order of
intelligence, integrity and business ca
pacity. It believes in Alaska's present
and its future, and it has confidence in
the patriotism, public spirit and hon
esty of its people. It protests that to
aaaer tthat they should be denied self-gov
eminent because some people residing
in some other locality at sometime in
their history displayed an incapacity or
were criminally extravagant Is as libel
ous on the fair name of Alaska as it is
childish and absurd.
The Portland Oregoiiian and other
newspapers have concluded chat the
Bryan strength in the democratic na
tional convention will be strong enough
to prevent the nomination of Parker.
It suggests Major McClellan, of New
York, as a probable nominee.
The Whitehorse excursion which
will take place one week from tomor
row is worth; of patronage for many
reasons. It will be an inexpensive out
ing, taking with it an opportunity to
witness an excellent program of ath
letic and field sports. It will also en
courage the further development of the
good feeling between the two White
Pass cities that already exists in a
marked degree, and which is a neces
sary element in promoting the develop
ment of the northern country.
The Nome News says "the democrats
have carried New York city in presi
dential elections by 160,000, and then
they failed to carry the state."
It is not quite so bad as that. A
democratic majority of 80, 000 below
Harlem always meant a democratic vic
tory in the state until recent year*. In
1902 the democratic majority below the
Harlem exceeded 130,000 for the first
time in history, and the state was lost.

Three years ago I suffered from a num

the same time. I was treated by a
physician and he stated that I would

was out of order, and that the kidneys
were not performing their functions
right, and got a box of Doan's Kidney

did all that was claimed for them On
previous occasions when one appeared
