ALASKA DEVELOPS IN SPITE OF GOVERNMENT
THE figures that tell the story of the wonderful development
of Alaska's fat resources that is taking place, notwithstand
ing the enforcement of a government policy that could not
have worked more effectively had its designers planned it for
purpose of strangulation, is astounding the world to the south
of us. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, commenting upon the re
markable showing made by the annual report of Collector of Cus
toms J. R. Willis, says it is doubtful "whether an equal number
of people elsewhere in the world have developed trade approach
ing such proportions." And all this has been brought about in
spite of "the throttling hand of the Washington bureaus."
The Post-Intelligencer's editorial is so apt in fitting into
the Alaska situation that it is worthy of reproduction. It follows:
"The customs statistics show a large expansion in the trade
of Alaska for the past year, notwithstanding the manner in
which the development of that territory has been arrested
through the bottling up of all of those resources from the pos
sibility of utilization. The throttling hand of Washington bu
reaus has as yet been kept off of some of the resources of the
territory, and private enterprise has been permitted to handle
them. It is in these directions, and these alone, that Alaska has
developed.
"The report of the collector of customs for the district
shows that during 1912 the trade of Alaska, with its limited pop
ulation. totaled the extraordinary amount of $72,741,060. It is
doubtful whether an equal number of people elsewhere in the
world have developed trade approaching such proportions. Alas
ka. though hampered in dozens of different directions, yet ex
ported merchandise and bullion to the amount of $45,928,719,
of which less than half was of gold and silver. Its import trade
amounted to $21,992,761. the greater portion of which came from
Seattle. The balance of trade in favor of Alaska for the year
was upwards of $20,000,000. a fact which will give some line!
on the manner in which the great territory will expand when
given equal opportunities with other parts of the country, such
opportunities as were given all other territories during their
infant days.
"The only resources which the Alaskans are permitted to
develop or utilize are the mines of precious metals and the fish
eries. The rest of them are bottled up, not by the laws of congress,
but by executive reservations which annul those laws, reserva
tions created when Gifford Pinchot was the dictator of the land
policies of the government."
NEW YORK SUN ARRAINGNS ALASKA POLICY
THE administration at Washington is keenly alive to its duty
to Alaska. That it must at the earliest possible date provide
for the removal of the barriers, erected and maintained by
meddlesome officials at Washington, that have stood between the
people and accomplishment for the last six or seven years, is
understood. Consequently, constructive plans are of more con
cern at this time than are complaints, yet it is refreshing when
o:. h >ars an arraignment by an Eastern paper of a course that so
well covers the situation that has obtained as this from the New
Work Sun:
"A Government-built railroad privately operated; a private
ly-built. privately-owned railroad; a Govemment-built, Govern
n ? operated railroad; any of these in Alaska is to be preferred
to the Government-decreed and Government-enforced stagnation
that now afflicts the abused territory.
"If anything could be more offensive to common sense than
the opportunities for fraud that have been encouraged in the
-ettlement of some of our territories, it would be the ridiculous
policy that for years has denied to Alaska the benefits of devel
opment."
Nothing but profit can result from the adoption by the Leg
slature of the Millard resolution providing for the appointment
of a joint committee to prepare a bill covering the coal lands
situation in Alaska that will embrace the conclusions of the peo
ple of Alaska. It is, in effect, an acceptance of Secretary Frank
lin K. Lane's request for the views of those who can help him to
reach conclusions.
