on Home Rule
The following excerpts are taken
from a speech delivered by Col. Sol
Kipiusky, of Haines, as printed in the
Douglas Island News of Nov. 27, 1907.
The occasion that called forth the
burst of oratory was the Republican
"Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentl
nieu: 1 deem it an honor, a privilege
and a pleasure to be a delegate to this
Republican territorial convention. 1
believe that this will prove a notable
gathering and that it will accomplish
much good; it will bettor the condition
of our people, and advance the wel
fare of this great country.
"At some former territorial con
ventions, I stood in this same hall, ad
vocating home rule for Alaska; and it
is now indeeed it great pleasure to
have the convention adopt the reso
lutions that it did today (applause).
"The people of the head waters of
Lynn canal, whom I have the honor to
represent, are a good, industrious, law
abiding people. They have no par
ticular grienvance against His Excel
lency Governor llogatt, nor against
the other present otlicials. What they
want is that which, by right, they are
entitled to; to be ruled by laws made
by those who have the welfare of the
people at heart.
"To speak frankly, it is my belief,
that, had the present government otli
cials in this territory the right to vote,
the majority of them would vote for
home rule, (loud applause.)
"In 1SG7. 'Alaska' -an English cor
ruption of the Icelandish 'Alakshoa,'
which means the land of glaciers?is
the land that was turned over by the
savage bear of Russia to the golden I
eagle of America, for the considera
tion of $7,200,000.
"Fellow citizens that was quite a
sum, but you must remember that the
j two seal islands of St. George and St.
Paul in Bering sea have supplied the
fair sex of the world with seal skin
coats. The revenue of the two isl
ands and what the Alaska Commer
cial Company has gained from them
has paid double ? yes. treble the
amount Secretary Seward paid for the
"Alaska is yet in her infancy, and
like an infant we are treated by our
mother government?according to the
treatment we have received, she acts <
more like a step-mother than a nat- 1
ural mother. For seventeen long
years we were ruled with an iron <
arm, military rule, until 1884, when <
the first civil law and organic act 1
were extended to our territory; and I
that's the same identical carpetbag
government we have today. Under
the military rule we were in the fry- i
ing pan, today under the carpetbaggers <
we are in the fire. * * * * Our
motto must and shall be 'Alaska for
Alaskans' and 'Down with the carpet
baggers,' or, better expressed In the
regular wooden-shoe language heraut:
mit-him.' (cheers and applause.)
"What we want is home rule; to be
ruled by our own people, under laws
framed by people that understand our
wants. ***** Fellow citi
zens, they say that we are not ripe
for home rule. It seems that the fair
daughters of Hawaii are ripe for home
rule; the Philippines are ripe for
home rule. The Cubans are perhaps,
made of finer clay than we Alaskans,
so they can rule themselves. (Ap
plause that made the galleries shake.)
"Fellow citizens, when shall we be
fit? When our eyes are closed and
our arms folded on our breasts;
after we are summoned to our fath
ers; when we are on that journey
from whence no earthly traveler re
turns? Too late. At that time, fel
low citizens, we will not care wheth
er school keeps or not.
"Now is the time. While our eyes are
opened we can distinguish between
right and wrong; between friends and
foes;- while our mouths are open we
can express our wants; while our
hearts throb for freedom we can hear
the sweet sound of the liberty bell
ringing (more applause.)
"Towns have sprung up in our
neighborhood, rich mines have been
discovered and developed, and sal
mon fisheries are operating extensive
ly. We are a producing people. No
more on our knees begging, we de
mand better treatment.
"Fellow citizens, let us instruct our
delegates to demand home rule for
Alaska, and keep on demanding it, un
til we get it. When we do get it, it
will prove to be the greatest blessing
we ever received from a cruel, near

good propositions are coming to New

them to come way up here and throw
their money into something they know
nothing about. There is capital to be
invested in proved properties and
there is money available for develop

we who have merely prospects can
not expect to realize before there has
been some development."

MONTH OF MARCH
This is the first of March, the month
that is supposed, in popular supersti
tion, to govern itself by the manner of
its coming in?if like a lion, then it
will go out like a lamb, and vice versa.
This is another superstition that
should be relegated to the ash heap
along with the woodhcuck.
At the risk of starting a rancorous
controversy with Stroller White, who
has defended every irrational supersti
tion from the mythology of the Chal
deans down to goose-grease for influ
enzy, we repeat that there is nothing
in the Lion and Lamb theory.
March is simply an ordinary divis
ion of time, and until the coming of
the Christians, it did not occur at
this period of the season at all, but
was the first month instead of the
third, consequently the Lion and Lamb
did not apply either in theory or prac
tice. A hundred and sixty years ago,
at which time White began to conjure
with wish-bones and monkey with the
zodiac, the English people adopted the
new reckoning, and White, having
served as consul on the British side,
adopted the changed calendar?along
with the wood chuck, ice worm, ser
pent, lion and lamb falsities.
We are willing that our readers shall
indulge themselves in a little harmless
fancy, but we do not want the stamp
of approval put upon it by a govern
Does this glorious, high tariffed and
star spangle bannered commonwealth
send its representatives to contiguous
empires for the purpose of divining
with the entrals of fowls? It does not,
Our consuls are supposed to make
tyranny tremble, and not to witch with
forked sticks and make love philters
and charms out of strange insects and
The truth about March is this: It
was invented as a period in which to
inaugurate a Democratic president
about every sixteen years. Caesar got
too fresh with the ides of March
once, and he was laid where a cer
tain other consul will be, if he does- .H
not regulate his ideas more to the !
paths of truth and veracity. This
may cause international complications,
and we don't care if it does, we have
the truth, though "h?1 itself should
gape, and yawning receive us whole."
