DEMPSEY BELIEVES
HE WAS POISONED AT
TIME OF TUNNEY CO
NEW YORK. Dec. S. Jack j
Dnnpsey told the New h oi k Am-j
erican representative in Los An
geles that he believed he was pois
oned before the Tunney light.
Physicians confirmed his suspicion
the day after the bout.
Dempsey said: "I was in such
an alarming condition, I called the I
doctor the day after the tight. I
was afraid there was some organic
disorder. The physician told me
there were strong symptoms of
poison."
Dempsey said Tex Rickard told
him before the tight that “Tunney
got sick flying from Stroudburg so
do me the favor and don't stop him
too fast; let him stay three or four
rounds. This is the greatest crowd
we ever had and I want to givi
them a run for their money ”
Dempsey said: "I almost had tc
laugh in his face as he was worry
ing about the wrong man. I was
so weak when I reached the anna
that I almost fell getting out of the
automobile."

trails is proce'ding accoiding to a
definite program that lias been con
curred in by Federal and Terri
torial agencies and when the work
is completed there will lie a com
prehensive, well-coordinated system
of transportation routes throughout
the more important parts of the
Territory. A change in policy by
the Bureau of Public Iloads adopted
after a conference with the Chief
Engineer in Washington last win
ter, makes possible a logical de
velopment of roads and trails. Here
tofore the standards adopted by the
Bureau of Public Itoads were not
always adaptable to the conditions
in the Territory. I’nder the new
policy they can construct roads and
trails to meet local conditions and
their Held of operations has been
increased.
Fur Farm Leasing
The law authorizing leasing of
lands for fur farming, recommended
by the Secretary of the Interior and
passed by Congress last year has
placed that industry un a better
basis.
Reindeer Industry
The yearly increase in the number
of reindeer exceeds the demands for
the meat and an effort should be
made to extend the market and
provide transportation to centers of
distribution for the frozen meat
otherwise the herds will deteriorate
and the ranges be overstocked. Ap
proximately two-thirds of the rein
deer in the Territory belong t) the
natives and the herds are increasing
so rapidly that irreparable damage
will result unless some provision is
made for protecting the ranges and

allocating the grazing lands. There
is urgent need for o new law which
Will enable the Secretary of the In
terior to allot and lease the graz
ing lands. Such a hill passed the
Senate last year but failed to he
considered in the House.
Indian Education
Tile Bureau of Hdtiealiou is charged
with tile administration if all mat
ters pertaining to the welfare of til"
natives, a system of schools and hos
pitals is maintained throughout th"1
territory and the results of long
years of patient endeavor are up
parent in the improved conditions
in tile villages where these inslilu-1
lions have been established. How
ever much remains to be accomplish
i oil. The facilities for medical relief
are inadequate, closer supervision of
the reindeer is essential and addi
tional industrial schools schools
should lie provided.
Floating Clinic
Tile motorboat | rovided last year
and outfitted as a floating clinic was
not placed in commission until about
! ihe middle of July hence tiie working
. season was only about half what it
should he if it is ready when navi
gation opens. Properly equipped and
in charge of an efficient personnel
Hie boat will he of inestimable bene
fit to the residents along the in
terior rivers. The doctor and nurses
’should lie supplemented with a dent
ist and lie permanently employed.
Federal Building
An adequate Federal Building is
ait important factor in tlie coordina
I lion of Hie Federal Departments fn
j Alaska. Detailed reports accompanied
iiy tentative sketches of office space
land a map of the building site have
been submitted to the Treasury De
i partment but there seems to tie some
1 question about Hie status of the pro
, jeet. It is Imped that the matter will
! he arranged and Hint tile necessary
j plans will he prepared anil tlie work
(started in the near future.
Alaska Game Law
i The Alaska Game Haw imposes
j various taxes on the residents of I ha
: territory, Hie Territorial legislature
is vested with authority to impose
j similar taxes and in fact does impose
j them, lliese (axes are a source of
j revenue and the territory iH entitled
ilo them. Double taxation is not just,
hence the tax provisions of Hie Game
Haw insofar as they affect, residents
of tile territory should be repealed.
The residents of the interior, espec
ially the natives, have been aided liv
the removal of restrictions on beaver
skins. Hie natives rely on the wintei
catch of fur for their existence and
| when closed seasons are Imposed
| they are forced to take their skins
j and sell them to dealers in eontrn
| band fur at a reduced price. The
! trapping of fur bearing animals is
t prohibited in many sections anil ini
1 mediate Investigation should be
made to determine whether or not
these restrictions cannot be removed
altogether or at least changed to per
mit the trappers to take a limited
number of skins.
Care of Insane
The insane of Alaska are cared for
under contract at Federal expense in
a private institution. The Secretary
of the Interior has submited a report
to Congress on the situation and it is
hoped that provision will be made to
care for lliese unfortunates in a Gov
ernment hospital.
Health Guarded
Because of the abnormal number
of smallpox eases on the Pacific
Coast in the winter of 1925-2G quar
antine measures were placed in ef
fect and all passengers enroute to
Alaska were examined. The Public
Health Service cooperated with the

Territorial Health Service and 11.851
passengers were vaccinated, in the
territory (he members of the Terri
torial Health ''oard, Surgeons of the
Public Health Service, and the phy
sicians of the Itmvuu of Education
vaccinated all who applied lo Ilium.
It is estimated mat about one fourth
of Hie population was treated. As a
result there were no eases of small
pox reported in the territory, Having
in mind Hie diptheria epidemic of
1921-25 and Hr- inadequate prepara
tions that had been made to meet
such an emergency, it was decided
to take all possible precautions lo
prevent a recurrence of those con
ditions. The Territorial Health
Hoard and the l-. S. Ilureau of Edu
cation have distributed smallpox vac
cine anil diptheria anti-toxin to ail
Hie larger towns and villages in tile
territory. Written instructions have
been prepared and sent to each sia
lion, which il is believed will enable
any intelligent person to administer
the vaccine in case of an emergency.
Incorrigible Indians
An Industrial school for incorrigi
ble native hoys should lie provided in
Alaska. The Federal Judges recom
mend this because they are frequent
ly confronted with the necessity of
disciplining these boys and it Is a
difficult situation. There are no suit
able institutions in Alaska- and it is ;
expensive and unsatisfactory to seni
the hoys to state institutions even
though they may lie such institution
that will accept them'. The new en
vironment may be desirable hut 111
change in climate and mode of living
is not conducive lo continued good j
health. Furthermore it is becoming
almost Impossible to find accommo
dations in reform schools. It is not
desirable nor advisable to send lbest
boys to jail because the inevitable
result is that in some of Hie villages
there are boys and girls who are ex
erting an undesirable influence on
their associates. They cannot Ic
placed in restraint because of (lie
lack of suitable house of correction
and in some instances they are de
uied admission to the schools be
cause of their delinquencies.
For the biennium ending March
21, 1927 the Territorial Legislature
appropriated $910,111.76 for the sup
i port of schools and the Agricultural
[ College. This /Is about 46 per cent
of the total revenues and represents
a per capita expenditure of about
$17.00 per annum for the white pop
ulation. For the same period $t!08.
400, or about 16 per cent of the rove
! uues were allotted to the support of
| eleemosnary institutions, the care of
indigents, dependent children and re
I lief of destitution. This is a per
capita expenditure of about $0.00
per annum for the white population.
It is believed that tlie per capita ex
penditure shown above is not ex
ceeded by any stale or territory.
Arctic Strategic Position
Alaska, because of its strategic
I position, was chosen as the objective
of the Amundsen I’olar Expedition
on (lie journey from Spitzhergen
over the North Hole. The “Norge"
was safely landed at Teller after a
successful trip across the polar le
gions and there the ship was dis
mailed and packed for shipment to
Italy. The Wilkins Expedition se
lected Point Harrow as a base for
Its explorations and during tlie win
ter several flights were made be
tween Fairbanks and Point Harrow.
These expeditions demonstrated that
transportation over air routes during
the winter months is possible and
not unusually dangerous.
Aerial Mapping
The U. S. Geological Survey of the
nlterlor Department and the U. S.
Navy joined in an expedition tor the 1
purpose of making aerial photo
graphs of Southeastern Alaska. I Hi -
iug the summer most of the larger
islands and a portion of the main
land were photographed. From these
photographs it is possible to map the
forest areas, power sites, coast line
and principal topographic features.
Since only u portion of the coastal
atea of Alaska lias been photograph
ed the work should be continued un
til all of the forested region lias been
mapped.
Severe Restrictions
Under the existing mining law
greater restrictions are imposed on
the placer miner in Alaska than in
the public land states. Such restrii
tions retard development and should
be removed. It is believed that the
establishment, of one Federal agency
in the Territory charged with tile en
forcement of all laws would promote
effieigency and reduce the cost of
administration.

The happiness of Steffen's victory
