IT XT~ 1C_ JUNEAU, ALASKA, THURSDAY, MAY 22, 1913. PRICE TEN CENTS \ OL. II., NU. lb/. _ Citizens Meet Gov. and Mrs. Strong at Reception The people of Juneau. Douglas and 1 Treadwell paid their respects to Gov ernor John F. A. Strong and Mrs. Strong at the public reception held at Kites' hall last night under the auspices of the Juneau Democratic Club. As previously arranged and announced in the pap* rs tin* members of the Dem ocratic club and the ladies' committee escorted the Governor and Mrs. Strong 1 to the hall. The Juneau High School l and paraded the streets and after en- j tering the hall played several stirring airs while the audience was being seat-1 ed. Through some misunderstanding ? f the hour many did not arrive until inter nine. However, at eight o'clock promptly Mayor Carter in a few well chosen words presented Alaska's new Governor. Governor Strong made a brief but I very earnest address. I.ike his speech i earlier in the day the tone was opti- j mistic and the keynote of his remarks | breathed an appeal for unity of pur-1 pose among the people of Alaska the '? common heritage of all who make this country home. He said that he [ had been asked by Secretary of the interior Lane how it was that the people from all the different sections of Alaska hail asked that he be ap pointed to the otlice of Governor and he replied because he was one of .;*.ein; he had been through all the hardships and trials incident to the early days: knew their troubles and their joys, their burdens and their as pirations; he knew them and they knew him for he had been one of them for sixteen years. He emphasized the fact that lie was still one of them, the Governor of all the people, ready and I willing to do all that was in his power' toward promoting their prosperity and happiness. The Governor referred very briefly to the conditions of the country and to its resources and declared that he not only believed but had a firm con viction that Alaska was now entering upon a new era?an era of progress, development and prosperity. Speak- i ing of the national administration's plans for Alaska, he affirmed his be lief that every pledge of the Demo-| cratic party would be redeemed; that a broad and liberal policy would be enforced toward Alaska, encouraging! industry and home building. Speaking of the work of Alaska's; first legislature. Governor Strong said that he was proud of the work accom plished by that body. He was assured that many good laws had been enact ed. and beyond all this, the meeting of the Legislative assembly had re sulted in cementing the bonds of friendship between the different sec tions so far removed from each other, in this country of magnificent dis-1 tances. it had resulted in creating a; newer, broader and better Alaskan i spirit, in bringing to the fore the com-! inanity of interest in the territory, by recognizing that what effects each sec tion Is the concern of all. Governor Strong said that he was grateful for the cordial reception ten dered himself and .Mrs. Strong by the people of Gastineau channel towns and pleased to be at home again. At the conclusion of the address the reception committee assisted in pre senting the people to Governor and i .Mrs. Strong. A constant stream passed down the reception line until after 9:30, many of them having come too late to hear the address passed in from the street while others were passing out.

Strong took tho oath that made him eighth Governor of the Territory of Alaska. The oath was adminis tered by Grover C. Winn, United States Court Commissioner, on the south portico of the United States court house, while hundreds of citi zens of Juneau. Douglas, Treadwell and other Alaska towns, men and boys with bared heads, filled the court house yard and the steps that lead to the front entrance of the building. Mrs. Strong, Gov. Walter E. Clark, and members of the inaugural com mittee occupied the stand with the in coming Governor. The new Governor made a notable inaugural address in which he spoke for unity of purpose among Alaskans, saying that "the spirit of sectionalism should be discouraged:" declared that the development of Alaska demanded that railroads should be constructed; urged that there should be "rational use" of the natural resources of the Territory without undue waste or mere exploitation; suggested that ef forts should be made to turn the tide of home seekers that is now moving into the Northwest territories to Alas ka, saying that Alaska offers allur-1 ing inducements to both men und cap-j ital; paid a glowing tribute to Alaska and its people and gave a comprehen sive summary of the conditions that caused and kept alive the faith that he has in them; praised the attitude of the Wilson administration toward Alaska; pledged the best that is in him to the service of the people in furthering those things that will be conducive of the best interests of Alaska as a whole; asked for the co operation of the people, and expressed his appreciation and that of the people of Alaska for the services rendered the Territory by his predecessor. Alaskans Assemble Early. Long before the hour arrived for the simple, yet dignified ceremony for the inaugural of Gov. Strong arrived, cit iens of Juneau began pouring into the court house yard. There were hun dreds present when United States Commissioner Grover C. Winn, who had been designated to administer the oath, came out from the court house building and took his position on the south portico. He was followed by Gov. Clark and .Mrs. Strong, and then came Gov.-elect Strong and Senator H. T. Tripp, chairman of the inaugu ral committee, on his right and Rep resentative Thomas Gaffney, of Nome, member of the committee on his left. The other members of the inaugural committee ? Representative William Stubbins, of Douglas; .Mayor C. W. Carter, Democratic Committeeman Z. R. Cheney, J. B. Marshall. Mayor M. J. O'Connor, of Douglas; Charles A. Hopp. 11. A. Bishop, R. A. Kinzie and B. L. Thane?followed. Ex.Gov. Clark Introduces Successor. After Gov. Strong had taken the oath of office Ex-Gov. Clark congratu lated him, wishing him a successful administration and expressed satisfac tion that the people of Alaska had the Governor that they desired. He in troduced Gov. Strong to the assembled citizens, saying: "My Fellow Citizens: "I have great honor and pleasure in presenting and in commending to the loyal support of all the people of the Territory my successor in office, the Honorable John F. A. Strong, eighth Governor of Alaska." GOV. STRONG'S INAUGURAL ADDRESS IN FULL The inaugural address, that was de livered in a clear and impressive man ner and warmly received, follows: "Custom seems to have decreed that upon induction into office the Gover nor of a State or Territory shall de i liver an inaugdral address setting forth, or at least outlining, to some extent, the policies which he will adopt during the administration of the office to which he has been called. "While the powers of the Governor of Alaska are somewhat limited, there is much that he may be enabled to do, by way of recommendation to and co operation with the Congress, the Na tional administration and the Terri torial Legislature, whose first session ended a few days ago, and during which, so far as I have been able to determine, not only was a goodly quota of wholesome legislation enact ed, but a foundation was laid for the guidance of future Legislative As semblies. Old Order Changes. "A change of National administra tion necessarily brings some changes in the National policies as well as in the administrative offices, and I am deeply sensible of the fact that with the inauguration of a Democratic ad ministration at the National capital the old order has changed and a new one has taken place. As Aliaskans we are vitally interested in the change, for whatsoever shall be the outcome ?whether the policies of the party now in power shall meet the expecta tions of the American people or not? they will be those which must be ac cepted for the ensutng four years, it is submitted as the best thought of the dominant party. "And while we as intelligent citi zens of the last of the continental ter 1 ritories are deeply interested in the general welfare of the Nation, naturally our greatest concern centers in our own great commonwealth. Many of us have given the best years of our i lives to it; we have fought its battles I courageously and with a single mind r edness of purpose; we have been In ? stant in season and out of season serving what we believed would make for its progress and prosperity. In many things we have failed, or come short of the ideals we have set up, but the progress that has been made under the many hardships and han dicaps that only a pioneer people can fully understand, have been such as to amply demonstrate the mettle of the men and women who are aiding in the developing and upbuilding of the Territory. "The history of Alaska is both old and new, but its industrial story is of such recent origin that it may be said to extend back little more than a quarter of a century. And yet if we will rellect for a moment we shall find that much has been accomplished in that time. While the Alaska pan handle, even then gave promise of its present importance, the great sec tions to the Westward were practi cally unknown sixteen years ago. Since that time towns have been biult, mines have been opened, rail roads have been constructed, and sub stantial progress made in other lines of human endeavor. Not much was known of the great interior country and Northwestern Alaska until 1SS7, and later, but there are now numer out towns and prosperous communi ties where once supposedly hostile Indians had their habitat. Unity of People Demanded. "These references are made simply to show that Alaska has made sub stantial progress due largely to the sublime faith, courage, and persever ance of the people who are today lay ing the foundation of an empire in the making?a great country which in the time to come will be added to the sisterhood of the Suites. The growth, progress and prosperity of Alaska de mands unity of purpose on the part of its people. When its vast propor tions are considered one need not won der that sectional differences are like ly to manifest themselves; but the spirit of sectionalism should be dis couraged and in its place be culti vated the idea that Alaska is our com mon heritage, and the welfare of each section should be the concern of all others. In this way we shall estab lish and nurture an Alaskan spirit as broad, as great and as grand as the magnificent commonwealth in whose present and future greatness we all believe. Rational Use of Resources "A residence of many years in this Northern country, during which I have been able to acquire some knowledge of the potential possibilities of its different geographical and .iudicial di visions convinces me that, no fears may be entertained as to the status that Alaska will take among the nat ural wealth producing countries of the world. The natural resources are here, and if that rational use be made of them, as it is believed will be the case, we may confidently expect that in the not distant future other pros perous towns and busy districts will arise in what is now the wilderness; and the towns now established will grow apace until they have become the busy metropoliees of their re spective regions, and ten sof thous ands will dwell in comfort and happi ness where now is found only the si lent of the primeval. This is no fanci ful picture, but rather a plain predic tion of the coming greatness of the Territory when it shall have come in to its own by reason of the develop ment of the vast natural resources that bountiful .Mother Nature has im planted in land and sea. Railroads Are Demanded. "The people of Alaska are a unit in the demand for additional railroad transportation facilities, realizing that it is only by this means that the great interior country can be opened to the development which its promise war rants. and the coast and inland sec tions brought into close commercial relations. With the view of bringing about this result, a bill has been pre pared and introduced in the Congress providing for the construction and op eration by the Federal government of seven hundred and * thirty-three miles of railroad from some point or points on the coast, with connecting lines to the coal deposits of Bering river and the Matanuska. In this con nection it may be added that this proposed plan of railroad construc tion has been endorsed by the Secre tary of the Interior, and this being the case, it may be assumed that the Congress will pass the necessary leg islation by which these railroads will be built and operated. As a corollary to the building of railroads will come the opening to development of the coal fields for commercial purposes, and such development must be an inestimable boon for all portions of the Territory. I Resources Should Not Be Exploited. "The proper use of the lands and the resources of the Territory com mends itself to the people of Alaska. None of these resources should be the subject of waste or mere exploitation; and due care should be taken to the end that none be destroyed, this being particularly true of the fishing induS' try which is destined to assume im creasing proportions with proper su pervision and adequate conservatioa Alaska Needs Men and Capital. "It will not be denied that Alaska offers opportunities to all people whc are seeking homes and the chance tc improve their financial condition; anc it is submitted that efforts should b( made to attract hither some of th< many thousands who are anuuall} leaving the United States to fine homes in the Canadian Northwest Alaska's agricultural possibilities ar< attractive and with rightly directed ef forts and with due encouragement 01 the part of the Federal and Territoria governments farming in Alaska shouh receive a substantial impetus. Alaski needs men of brawn and brain to de velop its resources; it needs capital and to both I believe it offers allur ing inducement. National Policies Favorable. "Although not yet fully formulated the policies to be adopted by the National Administration toward Alas ka promise to be liberal and such as will tend to promote the development of the Territory along sane and per manent lines. It is recognized that the foundation for Alaska's future growth and prosperity must be broad and comprehensive. The building i must not be for the present alone, but due care must be taken to build wise ly and well that the people not only of today, but those who shall* come after them shall have a share. Only in this way will a great and prosper ous commonwealth be maintained and its resources made of permanent ben efit. Dedicates Himself to Alaska. "Perhaps I need scarcely say that the best that is within me shall be given to securing for this Territory, as far as 1 may be able, as its execu tive head, such legislation by the Con gress and the Territorial Legislature, as shall be conducive to its best in terests; to secure the impartial admin istration of the laws throughout the Territory; and to aid and assist in every way the development of the various sections. In this the earnest co-operation of all the people is neces sary if results are to accrue; and un less results ary the outgrowth of com mon efforts, co-operation must be es teemed a failure. # "With faith in the fair mindedness of the people of Alaska, and with the knowledge that in the past, as a citi zen, 1 have stood for that which was deemed to be the best for all the Ter ritory, I wish to renew the pledge that 1 shall as far as within me lies de I vnti? invself to the promotion of ev erything that lias for its object the upbuilding of the Territory and the prosperity and happiness of its peo ple. 1 am but a steward of the peo ple for the time being, and 1 fully realize that if 1 have not their sup port and their sympathy that the suc cess which I so greatly desire cannot be mine. New Era Dawns. "While some of the past years have been dull, grey and disheartening, be cause of conditions that have arisen, and which need not be discussed here, I believe a new era is dawning and that the greatest industrial develop ment that Alaska has ever witnessed is at hand?an industrial and com mercial development that will embrace the entire Territory and which will place it in the forefront of progres sive and permanently prosperous com monwealths. Compliments Gov. Clark. "In conclusion, let me say that it affords me the greatest pleasure at this time to bear testimony to the work that has been accomplished by my distinguished predecessor, Cover nor Clark, who has shown by his ad ministerial acts that he has the inter ests of Alaska at heart, and his sym pathy with the aspirations and desires of the people of Alaska is broad and deep. For myself and on behalf of the people of Alaska I desire to ex press the hope that we shall have the pleasure of again meeting Gov. and Mrs. Clark in the Territory:, and I wish to assure them that the best wishes of the Alaskan people go with them in all things that will make for their happiness and prosperity." o?o?o PEOPLE SHOW THEIR COMPLETE SATISFACTION The complete satisfaction of the people of Alaska over the consum mation of their fight for the appoint ment of Gov. Strong to be chief execu tive of the Territory was shown in many ways yesterday. Happiness and contentment rather than exultation were depicted in the countenances of the people that so universally observed the occasion as a holiday. The spon taneous display of American flags, and the disposition of people to shake hands with each other were manifes tations that were more in evidence than the spirit that brings out shouts and hilarity, though there were cheers both for Gov. Strong and Gov. Clark. That the new Governor of Alaska has not only the confidence of the peo ple of Alaska but their afTection has been demonstrated by the people of the North in thousands of ways since the announcement of his appointment by the President, and It was never more in evidence than it has been since his arrival in the Capital City. o?o?o GOV. STRONG BtUlNS WORK AS EXECUTIVE Gov. John F. A. Strong commenced his first day's work as Alaska's chief executive this morning, arriving at the office at the customary hour. His desk was encumbered with mail and other matters that will keep him very busy for several days. The first ofil ? cial act of Governor Strong was the reappointment of W. W. Shorthill to ? be secretary to the Governor. Mr. , Shorthill will remain with the office for some time. C. R. Reid was also i reappointed janitor of the building. ? He has been busy with routine mat ? ters and in trying to familiarize him I self with his new duties. There is } much that requires attention in the ; office and he is trying to take care ol r that which seems most urgent, i Many callers have made the jour . ney up the hill to the Governor's office 5 today, nearly all of whom, were per . sons who failed to get an opportunitj \ yesterday to extend their felicitations 1 to the Governor. 1 o?o?o i Waffles all day at "U and I" Luncl Room. 4-1-llm American Reply Creates Dangerous Situation TOKYO, May 22.?The reply of the!

The Governor of Alaska should be an in dependent citizen and free to act with out dictation from Washington." Nine Dead ?o-o? CORDOVA, May 22. ?
