PROGRESSIVE MEASURES BEFORE LEGISLATURE
THE Alaska Legislature is not shying at the consideration of
legislation such as has become known throughout the coun
try as progressive. Yesterday the House passed the woman
suffrage bill, one of the measures that advocates of the "uplift"
expect much from, and there were introduced in the Senate bills
regulating lobbying and stock-selling. Previously eight-hour bills
had been introduced in each house. There are several of these
bills, and they apply to the mining industry, all public works and
to women, generally, no matter where employed. All these are
of the so-called progressive measures that are being seriously j
considered by the legislatures of the country, and all of them, no|
doubt, will be given serious thought by the Northern legislators.
It' the Allies are not coerced into accepting a settlement
of the Balkan war that is distasteful to them, as Japan was co
erced in the peace negotiations with Russia a few years back,
there will be little of Turkey left in Europe. The Allies propose
to let Turkey retain about 1,500 square miles of territory sur
rounding Constantinople and pay for the war. If these terms
are not accepted promptly the Balkan armies will have Constan
tinople beseiged and then they will likely ask that it, too, be
given up.
DO NOT WAIT FOR A VISITING COMMITTEE
THE proposal that a joint committee of the United States
Senate and House of Representatives visit Alaska should
not be pressed too hard untii it is discovered whether or not
the powers that be can be persuaded to take up Alaska matters
at the special session of Congress. The people are pretty well
united upon what they want from Congress, and they will be
prepared to make their wants fairly clear to the average Con
gressman as soon as they get the opportunity so to do. We
now have a Legislature of our own as well as a Delegate to Con
gress to speak for us, and they will see that the people who re
side in the Territory are properly represented. It is more diffi
cult than it was once upon a time for selfish lobbyists to put
things over.
r T ? J. P-nnblin L." I ono IfDdVC U'Vlflt VlP
secretary 01 inti initnui riaimuu i\. jj?uv ?<>v
was talking about when he said that it would be unnecessary
for him to make a trip to Alaska to determine what would be
his course in the affairs of the Territory. He has lived long in
the West, and he knows all about the capacity of the Western
people to make their needs and desires known so clearly that he
who runs may read.
Of course, we would like to have a committee of Congress
come to Alaska. We would royally welcome all the members of
the Senate and House if they would give us the chance to. We
would give Secretary Lane the time of his life if he would show
us his sunny countenance and give us an opportunity to enjoy
up here on our own soil the wit and wisdom that he always
exudes. We would feel honored beyond measure if the great man
that is our President would come to our patriotic, liberty-loving
country and learn to know us as we are and let our people learn
to know him as he is.
However, gentlemen in authority, do not wait for all this to
be brought about before taking up Alaska questions. We are
ready to take a chance on our ability to make you see our way,
and we have faith in you. We believe if there is action at all
that it will reasonably satisfactory.
It was appropriate that the woman suffrage bill should be
the first measure to go through a house of the Alaska Legis
lature. Alaskans are nothing if not gallant.
WASHINGTON WILL STAND BY ALASKA
THERE are many faithful servants of Democracy that would
like to become patriotic Alaskans if they could come to the
territory with official commissions tightly locked in their
hand bags. Of that we are given evidence daily. Those from
the State of Washington, however, will get scant encouragement
from the Democratic organization of that State. It is on rec
ord as favoring Alaska for Alaskans?and it desires that Alas
kans should pick those of their fellows that they would have to
serve them. There are many not passed middle age in the Ever
green State who remember the days when they were combating
carpet-bag rule themselves, and they are constitutionally opposed
to a system that would foist it upon a community. It is not
strange, therefore, that we find the Washingtonians and the Alas
kans at the capital fraternizing.
SEATTLE DEMOCRATS TRY
TO HELP ALASKA
A resolution urging President Wood
row Wilson to take immediate action
in matters of vital interest to Alas
ka was adopted at a largely attended
meeting of the King County Democrat
ic Club last Saturday.
The resolution was drawn by P. H.
Watt, formerly of Nome, and speeches
urging its adoption were made by Mau
rice D. Leehey. of Seattle, and John
L. Steel, of Landlock. Alaska. Follow
ing is the resolution, which will at
once be forwarded to the President:
WHEREAS. Despite the fact that
the Territory of Alaska has never been
given proper consideration by the gov
ernment at Washington, but has been
hampered ly unjust restrictions which
have hindered the development of its
morvelous resources, and prevented its
progress, yet, during the forty-six
years of American occupancy, it has
added $500,000,000 to the wealth of the
United States .and,
WHEREAS, The first recognition of
justice to Alaska was given w^n the
Democratic party following its prin
ciples of self-government, forced the
passage of a law creating a territorial
Legislature for Alaska, and,
WHEREAS, A definite government
policy is necessary to promote the de
velopment of Alaska, and some defi
nite course should be adopted by the
government without further delay,
now therefore be it
RESOLVED. By the King County
Democratic Club of Seattle, Washing
ton, as follows:
1.?That we deeply appreciate the
action initiated by the Democratic
House of Representatives in the last
Congress.
2.?That we respectfully urge upon
the President that he recommend to
Congress that the consideration of
Alaska affairs be made a part of the
program for the special session, to the
end that definite government policy,
us liberal as possible, but definite in
any event, be promptly established
for the development of the natural re
sources of Alaska, especially the coal
deposits, and that railroads be con
structed from the Pacific Coast of Alas
ka to the great interior waterways.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That
copies of these resolutions be forward
ed to the President of the United
States, to the delegates in Congress
from Alaska, to the secretary of the
interior, and to the chairman of the
committees on territories in the Sen
ate and House of Representatives.
GOOI) WORDS FOR JUEAU
AND THE LEGISLATURE
"Juneau is booming," said Major J.
F. A. Strong to the Seattle Post-lntel
ligencer last Monday, "and there is
every indication of greater prosperity
within the next year. If any more
' people come to the city 1 do not know
what we will do with them, as every
house and store in the town is rented."
| He thinks that the new Alaska Legis
j lature will compare favorably with a
like body in any other part of the
United States, even to good looks.
After staying two days in this city Maj.
and Mrs. Strong will leave for Wash
ington and other points in the East.
