SENDS NAMES TO SENATE
[Special Dispatch to Daily Alaskan]
Washington, Doc. 8 ? Among the
nominations sent by the president yes
terday to the senate for confirmation
were the following for positions in
Alaska:
Royal A. Gannlson, of New York, to
be judge of the United States district
court (or the First Alaska division,
with headquarters at Juneau.
John G. Brady, of Alaska, to be gov
ernor of Alaska, reappointed.
William L. Distin, of Alaska, to be
surveyor general of Alaska, reap
pointed.
BEST THING
Alaska Shunld Have Territ
orial Government
(Seattle Post-Intelligencer)
After alt, it seeius to the outside ob
server that a full territorial govern
ment, precisely on the lines of olher
territorial governments, is the best
possible solution of the, question what
to do for Alasku. There is nothing in
the situation of Alaska which makes it
radically dissimilar from other terri
tories, save the one thing that a con
siderable number of the people who re
side in Alaska during the summer
months leave during the winter, and
thus, while they have every interest
in the territory, can hardly be classed
as permanent residents.
This matter of residence, however,
is a matter of individual election. A
man whose interests aro in Alaska and
who reside there during all those parts
of (tie year when it is possiole or
prolitable to follow his vocation there,
may, if he elects, claim a residence in
the territory. He cannot, however,
also claim a residence elsewhere and
exercise the rights of citizenship in
another place.
Alaska has a larger imputation, oven
in the winter time, than was had by
any of the territories ever established,
at '.he time they were organized as
territories. It is as easily pos.-ible for
Alaska to elect a representative legis
lature as it was for any of the terri
tories created half a century ago, when
means of transportation were primitive,
to do the same thing, but they all did.
A territorial government for Alaska,
with a local legislature to pass all need
ful laws, would relieve congress from
the necessity of legislating for the
territory, and would permit the people
to be largely self-governing. The
arguments against granting Alaska a
full territorial form of government do
not seem sound. If precedents count
for anything, the precedents in olher
territories show that most of the argu
ments are without u solid basis.
