What Are the Powers of I
the Alaska Legislature?;
ii
Since tilt* passing of the home
rule hill, and more particularly since
the territorial election, the question
of the powers conferred upon the leg
islature what it can and what it
cannot do have formed the subject
of much argument throughout the ter
ritory. A recent Issue of the Nome
Nugget says:
"Several attorneys of Nome have
been requested within the past couple
of days to give their opinion as to
what are the real powers grunted to
the Alaska legislature.
"Most seem to agree that it can cer
tainly levy taxes on most private prop
erty. but not one would commit him
self. without preparation, to a state
ment as to the manner in which the
money so obtained could be spent.
"It is certain, of course, that the
legislature cannot interfere with the
Judiciary. It seems to be specifically
mentioned in the bill that the legis^
lature cannot interfere with the game
laws, fisheries, roads, schools, rail
roads, insane people and various other
matters. Vet the concensus of opin
ion amongst Nome attorneys is that
the legislature can kill the poll tax,
and some believe that it can accom
plish almost anything usually within
the province of territorial govern
ments Outside.
"A majority of the legal men inter
viewed appeared to believe that the
amendment giving a Senate does not
add to the power of the legislature,
but several say that the restrictions (
specified in the bill will be found not *
to be so general as people suppose. <
Speaking in an offhand way the attor- <
neys expressed the opinion that the J
bill gives much more power than the <
people generally suppose, but on be- <
ing pressed to particularize each plead- J
ed lack of opportunity to study the '
bill with sufficient care to permit them- <
selves to be quoted." '
A TANANA PHILOSOPHER
AND WHAT HE OBSERVES
"I don't smoke very often," said a
well known Tannna business man.
"and when 1 do smoke, I would much
rather buy my own cigars than to have
them given to me; but that part of
what I have to say is immaterial. What
1 want to call your attention to is
to some curious incidents that 1 have
been noting for years and perhaps you j
can satisfactorily explain some of
them." says the Yukon Valley News.
"For instance- it frequently happens
that the mails will come and go for
a month or two without bringing me
a single letter, and then again I will
go to the postotllce upon the arrival
of a certain mail and my box will be
filled to overflowing with letters
some of them from rich widows, de
siring matrimonial partners, and oth
ers merely relating to business af
fairs; or. as another illustration; I
may not sell a single dollar's worth of
a certain kind of canned goods in my
stock for over a year and then sudden
ly there will be a demand for that par
ticular brand of canned stuff that will
clean out my stock in a single day.
Then again there may not have been
any sickness in the town for a long
time and suddenly I will learn that
half of my customers are suffering
from acute indigestion. Do you grasp
the penomenon? Or 1 may not have
had a lady visitor come into my store
in several weeks and then again a
day will come when the entire female
population seems to have descended
upon me and my general merchandise
store look as if I was having a bar
gain sale in Indies' furnishings. Do
you get the phenomenal part of it?
Well, what has caused me to think
of this just now is something that oc
curred today. Now, 1 don't have a
cigar given to me on an average of
more than once in three month, but
J today three gentlemen presented me,
each with a cigar, and each of the ci
gars had a busted wrapper. I tell you
there is something phenomenal in
what we may describe as the similar
ity of successive occurrences. You
can't explain these things to me by
saying that they just happen that
way."

a higher rating than that of the Dakota all-Hard
Wheat Patent Flour.
Considering that this scientific combination of Past

from 20 to 2oc'r less than what has always been con
sidered the highest grade of breadstuff, you can readily
