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. -

WIDER SCOPE FOR
FEDERAL COURTS
[Special Dispatch to Daily Alaskan.]
Washington, Dec. 7 ? In his annual
report, the attorney gen*r?.l recom
mends that full authority should be
conferred upon United States courts to
issue bench warrants for the arrest of
anv person charged with a crime by an
indictment in his court and that the
warrant be valid for service anywhere
in the confines of American territory
and that it be sufficient warrant for the
production of the accused in the court
where the indictment was returned.
