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
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
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.

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.
