An Eastern View of the
Alaska Coal Question
The Chicago later-Ocean discusses
i' Alaska matters in the following edi
"D. M. Stewart, of Seward, Alaska,
writes informingly in a recent issue
of the San Francisco Call of the needs
of that territory, whose material devel
i opuient has practically stood still for
seven years because Mr. Roosevelt
had bad dreams about 'Guggenheims,'
j and the 'conservationists' have never
since been willing to give Alaska a
chance to grow unless they could pre
scribe the pattern.
"The proof of Alaska's industrial
and commercial stagnation is seen
when figures are compared. Alaska's
trade with the mainland in 1011 was
$55,924,404,000. Her average trade for
the years 1004-1011 was $55,802,077.
When a country of Alaska's enormous
natural resources fails to show any
more increase of business than- the fig
ures of 1011 show when compared with
the eight-year average it is evident
that somo exterior force Is holding
that country back.
"What has caused Alaska's recent
troubles, according to Mr. Stewart,
was the circulation and wide-spread
acceptance of a yarn to the effect that
there were just two good coal fields
in Alaska, which 'certain grasping,
greedy 'malefactors' of New York had
conspired to gobble up. to tlje ever
lasting Injury of the shivering resi
dents of Alaska and the eternal im
poverishment of the American peo
pie.' Most of us remember the cry of
alarm that was raised and how Mr.
Roosevelt responded by withdrawing
from entry every inch of coal land in
"The residents of Seward are now
paying $17 a ton for British Columbia
coal when within 150 miles of them
are enormous supplies of better coal
which could be laid down at their
doors at a good profit at $5 to $6 per
ton, if they were only allowed to mine
it. Such a situation Is beyond even
the imagination of a comic playright.
It had to happen in jrder to be be
lieved, even on t he farce-comedy
"It Is quite possibly true that cer
tain men of great wealth sought to
gain possession of valuable coal de
posits in Alaska. But in stopping bo
called 'malefactors' to whom he hap
pened to have a particular aversion,
Mr. Roosevelt forgot all about the
thousands of men of very Hmall means
in Alaska who wanted and needed
"Mr. Stewart says that public senti
ment in Alaska favors a rational leas
ing system of coal lands as the ex
pedient course under present condi
tions. Alaska should certainly be per
mitted to mine and use her own coal.
The further continuance of the dead
lock of the past seven years would be
i simply idiotic. No wonder that born
Americans in Alaska openly advocate
j secession and annexation to Canada."
The Seal Islands and How !
They Were Despoiled
The acquisition ol" the seal islands?
or rather the leasing ot' the real rook
eries by the Alaska Commercial Co.,
reads like a romance. The 1'riby
lov islands, which compose the fain
, ous seal rookeries, were discovered by
a Russian man-of-war, during the Rus
sian occupation of Alaska. When the
United States took over Alaska from
the Russians, an officer in the Russian
navy, who was on board the warship
which found the seal rookeries,
thought he saw an opportunity to
make some money, and he did. He is
now living on the fat of the land in
I San Francisco.
The officer left his warship and pro
ceeded to the Golden Gate city. To
the Slosses he told of the seal rooker
ies. saying that if they would declare
him in on the profits which might be
gained through the sale of seal skins,
he would pilot one of their vessels to
the scene. The offer was readily ac
cepted by the Slosses.
In 1S69 a vessel left San Francisco
harbor, ostensibly enroute to the Sand
wich islands, but in reality bound for
the seal rookeries. The Itiissinn naval
o.'llcer was aboard. The Pribylov isl
ands were reached in due time, and
the rookeries were there, as the Rus
sian had claimed.
The Alaska Commercial company
was formed by San Francisco people,
and by the aid of the Califoria dele
gation in Congress, a twenty-year
lease was obtained by it to the seal isl
ands. The company was allowed to
kill as many seal as it wished, for
which it paid the government $2 per
Of course no attention was paid to
the matter in Congress, as Alaska was
considered of no importance anyway.

the court that a member of the gang
