ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7. 1912 at the postofflce at Ju neau, Alaska, under the Act of March 3, 1S79. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: Q?e year, by mail $10.00 Six months, by mail 5.00 Per month, delivered 1-00 JUNEAU. ALASKA, THURSDAY, MARCH 6, 1913 A RESOLUTION THAT RINGS TRUE REPRESENTATIVE Gaffney's resolution, that was adopted by the Legislature yesterday, asking President Wilson to ap point only bona fide residents of Alaska to places of trust in the territory will no doubt meet a responsive ear at the Na tional Capital for it is in accordance with the platform promise of the Democratic National Convention that selected Woodrow Wilson as the standard bearer of his party. The specific limi tation by the resolution of the term "bona fide resident" to those whose residence does not depend upon office holding and to those that have not transferred their residnce to other climes is a reasonable and logical definition of the meaning of that platform promise. Those placed on guard in Alaska should be men whose every interest is wrapped up in their residence in the North. They should be men that look upon Alaska as home and that desire to make that home a fit habitation for a growing civili zation. There is no doubt about the Alaskan spirit of the Alas ka Legislature. Are those Republican office-holders that are sending in their resignations to the President trying to cultivate friendships among Democrats? If so thev seem to know how. Is it possible that General Orzoco has been fighting for cash instead of the down-trodden people of Mexico? He says he will quit for a few millions in silver. LEGISLATURE STANDS FOR DEVELOPMENT IN UNANIMOUSLY adopting Senator Millard's resolution, ap proving the report of the Alaska Railroad Commission and urging President Wilson to ask Congress at its special ses sion to translate the recommendations of the commission into law. the Alaska Legislature went on record for the development of Alaska along lines that will add to the prosperous population of the territory. The sentiment of the first joint resolution to; be adopted by the Legislature is the sentiment of the people of Alaska and of everyone that knows the conditions existing in the territory. That it will receive the earnest consideration of the new President is the belief of all tha* have noted the anxiety of Mr. Wilson to know what the masses of the people desire. The situation in Mexico suggests that Ambassador Henry Lane Wilson -might have reasons other than political ones for wanting to let go . The promotion of the Mexican commandant of the guard that was taking the late former President Madero to the govern ment prison when the latter was killed will not serve to dispel; the lingering suspicion that the killing was really an assassina tion. SENATE HONORS BRYAN'S RIGHT HAND MAN THE selection of Senator Kern as the Democratic Senate leader was a fitting conplement of the work that was started at Baltimore where the Hoosier statesman played such an im portant part as Bryan's right hand man in the battle to prevent the bosses from controlling the party's action. The first skirm ish between progressive and conservative in the Baltimore con vention came over the selection of a temporary chairman. The: conservative national committee had selected Judge Parker for the honor. Bryan protested, and it was Kern that he named to lead the progressive hosts. Kern pleaded for harmony, but see ing that it was no where about declined the honor Bryan had tried to bestow upon him, saying that when there was a fight there was but one man to lead those opposing the interests, and that man was the great Nebraskan himself. Bryan and Kern lost the honors of contest that day only to win them back a week later multiplied a hundredfold, when Wilson secured the Presidential nomination. The harvest is now for the people. Wilson is President, Bryan heads the Cabinet and Kern leads in the Senate. Let us have light! Congressman Richmond Pearson Hob son. who. as a young naval lieutenant, was the hero of the fa mous Merimac episode at Saniago de Cuba, has declared war upon the suffragettes. Memory recalls when the gallant Hob son was younger and was want to kiss any member of the fair sex that would permit. What, pray, has caused this inconsist ent grouch? JUDGE LYONS PRAISED BY VALDEZ BAR The Y&ldez bar association tendered Judge Thomas R. Lyons a reception in the Tillicum club rooms before his departure from that town fro Ju neau. Prominent personages of the city, including the city officials, were present, together with a large num ber of citizens. Speeches were made in eulogy of Judge Lyons, praising him for his fair and impartial handling of the cases that came up for trial in Valdez dur ing the last term of the distdict court. In responding Judge Lyons said that the people, the press and the bar of all the Divisions of Alaska had treated him with every courtesy. From his experience on the bench he was con vinced that the Alaskans were the best losers in the world. That when de cisions went against them they cher ished no animosity against the court. but came right up and declared them selves willing to abide by the decis ions. He believed that his decisions had been in accordance with the law fact and in every instance, though it is possible that in following the stat utes, some injustices might have re sulted to individuals, but that was the fault of the law which he had sworn to follow. He was highly cheered when he closed his remarks. ALASKAN WRITES FROM EAST AFRICA C. E. Bunnell, the local attorney re ceived on the last mail a letter from G. M. Richards, a mining engineer, who is well known here, and who was for many months in charge of the work at the Reynolds-Alaska copper mine. Mr. Richards is now in Nya Lukemba, Congo, German East Afri ca. The letter was mailed on Dec. 6th and reached here the last boat: II I I I 11 I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I i I I I I I I I I I I ?

I thank heaven that the work keeps rne very busy. Just now the rainy season Is In full swing and the weather Is rather cold and disagree able. We have had some very good shooting, and 1 have killed my first elephant, also three buffalo, several hippo, and a number of antelope. One of the men shot a fine specimen of lion. 1 haven't managed to see one. I captured a young antelope alive and had him for some time, but one night a hyena came and carried him off. "Four of the men. including my self. have had slight attacks of fever, but altogether it is a very healthy section. Our lowest altitude is about 3,000 feet and we have elevations from that up to 10,000. At times it is really uncomfortably cool, although we have not yet had snow."?Valdez Prospector. INNOKO DISTRICT IS SURE QUARTZ CAMP Manager Joaquin, of the Kiskokwim Commercial Company post at Takot-f na. reports business in that section as better than last year. This is due in a measure to the Cripple strike, but the Takotna itself is also looking healthy, and the same can be said for the old Innoko diggings, says the Idit arod Pioneer. Regarding tne proposal 10 put dredges on Ophir and Ganes creek, in which enterprise the Kuskokwiin Commercial Company is heavily in terested, Mr. Joaquin says that will depend entirely upon the result of the prospecting now being done on the ground with a drill. The work has been retarded by the exceptionally cold weather, but is doubtless going forward now. The quartz outlook in the Innoko district is very encouraging, and there seems to be no doubt about a quartz camp resulting in a year or two. At present several outfits are prospect ing for quartz, and although they are hampered by lack of capital, work is progressing steadily. The Independ ence, on the summit between Ganes and Yankee creeks, is showing up ex ceptionally weel at a depth of 150 feet. A toy crusher taken into the district did not prove satisfactory and is out of commission, but Mr. Joaquin as sures us the machinery necessary to work the Independence and other properties will be brought in. Charley Peterson says the talk over there is that a very good summer is in sight for the whole district.?Idita-1 rod Pioneer. CHARGES AGAINST 60 COAL CLAIMANTS Register Walker has sent out no tices to sixty coal claimants includ ing the Green and Morrow groups, in volving coal lands in the Bering river district, to the effect that the commis sioner of the general land ofllce has preferred charges against their loca tions.
