ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE'
J. F. A. STRONG Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered as second-class matter November 7, 1912 at the postolllce at Ju neau. Alaska, under the Act of March 3. 1S79. SUBSCRIPTION RATES: year, by mail $10.00 Six months, by muil 6.00 Per month, delivered 1.00 THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE INAUGURATION. THE inauguration of Gov. Strong marks the final step in the evolution of the rule by the people in Alaska. It is a fitting sequence to the passage of the home rule bill for the Terri tory and the first session of a Legislature of Alaskans. It is meet that the first home-made Alaskan laws should be executed by a man of the choosing of the people of the North, and Gov. Strong was selected for the Governorship by the people of Alas ka as completely as though he had been elected to the office by their votes instead of having been appointed upon their petition. It is appropriate that the self-made legislation of Alaska should be interpreted and put into operation by one who has had faith in the capacity of the people to rule themselves, and who was a pioneer in the movement that has finally put government in their hands as fully as it is possible for residents of a terri tory belonging to the United States to have it. The extreme satisfaction of the people of Alaska in the course of events that culminated yesterday in the inauguration of Gov. Strong is in a large measure a recognition of the eternal fitness of the climax to the long battle they have waged for self government in this Territory. Probably no man in the North so thoroughly typifies the spirit that was the life of the struggle that has resulted in such a glorious triumph as the new Gover nor of Alaska, whose 1C years' Northern residence has made him an Alaskan in all the term implies- The people understand this, and they are pleased beyond expression. The "back to the people" movement has struck the National capital. Citizens of the District of Columbia are seeking self government. Somehow that Wilsonian way of thinking has a wonderful grip when it gets fairly at work. JUDGE JENNINGS THE induction of Robert \V. Jennings into othce as Judge of the United States District Court for the First Judicial Di vision of Alaska Tuesday at Ketchikan meets with the satis faction of the people of this Territory. His appointment was an excellent one?one that is worthy of the administration that made it. Judge Jennings is a very able lawyer, and one who en tertains and practices the highest ethics of his profession. He is a brilliant man of scholarly attainments, and his integrity is of the highest order. He possesses all the qualifications of heart and mind, education, experience and temperment necessary to make an ideal jurist. The change in the affairs of the Nation resulting from the election last November when there was a complete reversal in the status of the major political parties on the country is just reaching Alaska. The retirement of Judge Thomas R. Lyons to private life marks the termination of an official career in Alaska that has been acceptible to the people and creditable to the man that made it. Probably no judge ever retired from office possessing the confidence of the people in a greater degree than Judge Ly ons possesses that of those who know him in Southeastern Alas ka.
