Writing under the caption, "How It
Grows," the Douglas Island Newt ex
prtsses lu t?tj laudable pride in the
wonderful ptogreas of lu home (own
aod it gives a ?kj sensible reason for
ltf adrmoamaot. la Um laat five rears
Douglas ha* gained 100 par cent, in
population tad the growth has been
a'oog line* that oount tor permanency
and clvia health. In 1900 the place wu
a more or Iwa unorganised settlement
possessing little or no ambitioae tor Its
fetor*. Now It la a little city of homee
In which live people poeeeastng pride
in their municipality and oooftdeot hope
tor ooming greatness.
la explaining the changed conditions,
the Douglas Island News says:
"To some the reaeon tor this rapid
growth may not be apparent. To oth
ers who hare given .he matter careful
thought. It la as plain aa day. The first
and moat Important of the events thai
hare combined to bring about this
healthy ooodltlon la the fact that as
an incorporated town Douglas has been
able to take on a measure of self-gov
ernment. Her people hare beea priv
tledged to partake of the revenues aris
ing from the license tax, and with it
build a eity.
"Not alone haa the increased dignity
accompany ,ng thia event added to tbe
importance of th? town, but, having a
governing power of their own chooeing,
the peo*le have tolt that they were
aooaebodv. that they .were not mere
alavee, working ou' some other peoplee'
Reason ng from this basis, the truth
of which la self-avldent to every man
who comprehends the cause and signif
icance of American greaUK.se, the
News jaat u truthfully and very ap'ly
"It la ? quMtion if thia one condition,
which bu done to much for Doug'aa,
which kM pulled her out of the mire
taxi clay of a ahiflleee, Indiffer* nt,
don't-care village, and haa placed her
feet upon the eoltd rock of progre*",
would oot If applied to the people of
Alaska bring about ilmilar reeu.ta.
Oir* her only ? taate of self-rule, and
Alaaka will (row aa Douylaa ha*
frown ? ? ? ?
"The American people will progress
a oder the freedom which tSe flag ia
auppoaed to guarantee, but the; want
to be independent, they want a voice
la their own affaira, they don't make
food alavea."
Torlea art fond of prating about the
lack of atabillty of Alaaka. the popula
te of which they say 4a nomadic aod
thla they urge aa a reaaoo why self
government should oot be given the
ptople. The condition of which they
eoaiplala la rather a reeult of the lack
?f home rule than the cau?e tor deny
ing It to the people. Give Alaakant to
understand that thla dlatrict la their
verr owa la which to fashion aa ft eat
a com asoa wealth aa they are capahlr
of making and a civfe pride will follow

(Norn# Nugget.)
The efforts of the chamber of com
merce (which are just beginning) to aid
in the securing of an elected delegate
to ret reeent Alaska in the legialature
of Alaska, tilting in Waahington, are to
be commended, on the aame principle
that "half a loaf ia better than no
bread. " A delegate in congrees would
be little better than a messenger be
tween the hall of the house of represen
tatives and the committee rooms, but
even this would be better than no mes
senger at all. Man; full-fledged repre
sentatives and senators are little more.
But the fght that is before the people
of Alaska, in the opinion of the Nugget,
and which Iran see Ddi in importance
the election of a delegate, ia territorial
autonomy. Urder existing conditions
if a delegate were elected, he would
represent only an unorganised district
?a territory "without form and void;"
but were we given full territorial pow
ers, we could then take our place among
the organised territories, and thus have
the benefits accruing from home rule.
It is apparent that In formulating a
system of territorial government for
Alaska many serious pro! lems would
have to be met and many difficulties,
largely geographical, must be over
come. Alaskt. is an empire In itaelf,
and its great dimensions, coupled with
the diverse geographical conditions,
present a problem whoee successful
solution demands skill and care. Ulti
mately, of course, Alaska, like aacient
Gaul, must be divided into three parte,
each the nucleus of a future state, but
in the meantime, it is submitted, that a
territorial form of government, em
bracing Alaska as it stands today,
would be a long step toward the actual
foundation of a comprehensivj system
of self-government. It ts needless to
point out that government from and by
Washington is an abject failure, and
our only hope lies largely in governing
ourselvei as our forefathers have done
for geoeratiooa.
