GOVERNMENT,
Skagway Business Man Tells Portland Ore
gonian the District of Alaska QShould
Be Organized As a Territory
While visiting in the states C. B.
Baraden, of this city, is making full
use of his opportunity to five voice to
A!as*a's cry for self government. The
following is from the Portland Ore
jo.iian:
"C. B. Baraden, who represents Ross
Biggins & Co., one of the largest mer
cantile concerns in Southeastern Alas
ka, having extensive business interests
ut Juneau and Skagway and dealing all
through the Yukon Territory, is in
j Portland on a business trip. In an In
terview, Mr. Harrsden said he oonsld
le.s Alasnt. one of the most wonderful
countries in the world, and expressed
himself as well pleased with present
conditions and the future outlook, and
that what is must needed is home rule
under a territorial form of government.
Be said:
" 'We have, without doubt, 50,000 to
tO.OOO white people in Alaska at the
present; bright, progi essive men scat
tered all over Alaska, who are perfect
[ ly able to make laws and see that they
are properly executed. The population
li rapidly increasing and a home rule
form of government would develop the
country in a manner that would sur
prise the world, and 1 think the powers
at Washington should give this matter
immediate attention. There it certain
ly no other place in the United States,
and probably not in the world, that has
as much minerals of all kinds as are in
Alaska, and the fish industry would be
simply ecormous if properly perpetuat
ed. We want home rule aDd believe
we are fully entitled to it, and with a
very few exceptions the entire people
demand it.
I " 'Fairbanks, about 1!50 miles up the
Tanana river, without doubt will be the
camp this season, and everything points
to a big rush there in the early spring.
The diggings around Fairbanks are rich
without any question, and there is no
doubt but that it is destined to I e a
large camp for several years.' "
Atlln Miner Killed
James Kennedy, an individual miner,
was killed by falling timber on Spruce ,
creek, January 22. Interment, was at
the Atlin cemetery January 24. Ken- 1
nedy was a young man and a native of |

cirnp.

May Join British Columbia
There is said to be a strong move
ment on foot not only in the Klondike
