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.
