PRESIDENT ASKS FOR NEW CODE FOR ALASKA Special Dispatch to Daily Alaskan.] Washington, Dec. 8 ? The president's message was sent to congress yesterday afternoon. It deals extensively with Alaskan questons. A new code is rec ommended for the district. The presi dent says it has, in some respects, out grown the laws that have been pro vided by congress. Such legislation as that recommended in the report of the attorney general, he says, is impera tive. It is recommended that congress divest the district court judges and clerks 'of Alaska of administrative or executive functions and give them to the governor, making the governorship a real linstead of a nominal position. This, ho says, would relieve the judges of much of the strife that now embar rasses the judiciary of the north. It is also recommended that more moDey be expended in Alaska and that more dis trict judges be provided. The principal features of the message in national matters arelthe earnest rec ommendation for a strong army and navy and encouragement by legislation of the merchant marine. The problem of the wage earners is discussed and the president says their rights must be protected. He says the day has gone when corporations can be handled in defiance of the public well fare. The message recommends a compre hensive revision of the national natur alization laws. Forest reserves are discussed at length and the announcement is made that it is a principal of the administra tion that forests are for use and not or nament. - NON-PARTIZAN TICKETS WIN [Special Dispatch to Daily Alaskan.] Seattle, Dec. 7?
