Discussing Means of I
Building Alaska Roads
A late dispatch from Washington
says: There appears to bo a wide dif
ference of opinion among those most
interested in the construction of gov
eminent railroads in Alaska, which
was urged so strongly by President |
Taft in his recent message to Con
gress, as to the best plan to be fol
lowed in framing legislation toward
On the other hand, practically ev
ery one who will have the work in
charge is determined not to let per
sonal views interfere with the final
success of the enterprise as a whole,
and Delegate Wickersham. Senator
Jones and Representative Humphrey
already are at work trying to get the
proposition more definitely before
Delegate Wickersham believes it
would l?e better, in introducing the
necessary legislation, to provide for
government construction of the pro
posed roads. He does not believe as
do a number of others that this would
mean slow construction. He believes
that it would move as rapidly and
successfully as the Panama canal.
Much of the material now in use there I
will be available for use in Alaska as
early as July 1. as well as a consid
erable part of the canal force, and I
Mr. Wickersham is prepared to urge
construction of the proposed Alaska
railroad under the same auspices.
.Mr. Humphrey is inclined at pres
ent to have the government guaran
tee the bonds or the road and have ac
tual construction undertaken by pri
vate persons, but both the Alaska del
egate and .Mr. Humphrey are willing
to get together with other interested
persons to obtain the most available
There seems to be but little chance
that the committee on territories will
be able to consider the president's
message and the accompanying report
of the Alaska Railroad Commission at
this session of Congress, because of
the tardiness with which the report
was put into Mr. Taft's hands. It was
the original plan of Congress to have
the information at its disposal early
in December and to give the matter
Now that it has been made practi
cally impossible to obtain action be
fore March 4, Mr. Wickersham and the
other interested in the project are
bending their efforts toward persuad
ing President-elect Wilson to include
Alaska railroads in the legislative pro
gram of the forthcoming extra session
Mr. Wilson already has expressed
himself as decidedly interested in the
topic, and it Is felt In Washington that
he will give his consent to considera
tion of the matter immediately after
(the house sends the tariff legislation
to the Senate.
News Notes of Interest
from the National Capital
WASHINGTON. Feb. 13. Tlu>
House Bunking and Currency Commit
tee is preparing to consiler the report
of that body on the Money Trust,
which Chairman l'ujo, with the aid
of Samuel Untermeyer, counsel for
the Fujo sub-committee, is now draft
ing. It will be well toward the end
of the session before the report, with
its legislative recommendations, can
be worked through the sub-committee
and the full committee to the House.
Chairman Fujo is working day and
night framing his version of the re
port. As framed by him it will em
brace recommendations on the follow
ing principal points:
Regulations of clearing houses
through the postotlice department by
forbidding the use of the mails for
transmitting of certain transactions
deemed evil, such as short sales, ma
nipulation and the establishment of
Regulation of clearing house through
an act making their incorporation a
condition precedent to the member
ship of national banks in such or
ganizations, charters to eliminate the
regulation of interest or exchange
charges by clearing houses.
Stringent provisions to prevent na
tional banks from loaning to their of
licers or directors and to prevent na
tional banks or their oflicers from par
ticipating in syndicate flotations of
Opposition is looked for both in the
nib-committee and in the full commit

The bill incorporating the Rocke

or the benefit of mankind, has struck

lassed the House, came up before the
Senate Judiciary Committee. The sen

.Many objections were advanced, the
most important being the contention
that a general measure should be
passed and that the general law

Mr. Carnegie, and other philathro
pists. It was held that there should
be no more such individual bills
passed and that the gonreal law
should mention, or "immortalize" no
No agreement seemed possible on
any of the points involved. The entire

Mr. Slayden admitted.
"Well," said Uncle Joe Cannon. "I |
am surprised to learn that there are
so many 'E. Z. Marks' in the House."

VfcKenzie River Trader
Doesn't Believe Stefansson
Joseph Jacquot, a trader formerly |
tationed at the mouth of the MacKen
ie river places little credence in Stef
nsson's red-haired Eskimo story.
Vriting to the Dawson News, where
;e is spending the winter, Jacquot
"Having read in your paper about
he red-haired Eskimos, reported by
Itefansson. I wish to say I do not
elieve the story, as Hanbury and
larrell passed there long before Stef
msson had ever been there; also the
htholic priest who is among them
ow. These people never said a
ord about Eskimos so fair as that,
.s for the fairness of these Eskimos,;
there is nothing strange about that,
as one meets some very fair ones at
Herschel Island, but they are descen
dants of whalers from San Francisco.
These may be descendants from the
lost men of the Franklin expedition.
"Hanbury and Darrell say that
they met Eskimos very light in color,
but it was ou account of not using
fire. But as for the red hair and
whiskers, it sounds fishy. I also know
two Eskimos who wintered twice on
Victoria Island, and I have seen many
of those Eskimos, but they never said
a word about red hairs, so that story
may go all right with people who do
not know anything about that country,
but it does not catch with me."
