ONE ALAKA PAPER IS SATISFIED
THK Iditarod Pioneer is pretty well satisfied with political con
ditions in Alaska and the Nation generally. Events have
demonstrated that it is thoroughly in tune with the public
sentiment ol the Alaska people and the American people. In
July last it placed at the head of its editorial colmun the names of
Wilson and .Marshall for President and Vice President; James
Wickersham for Delegate to Congress, and J. F. A. Strong for
Governor. In August the people of Alaska re-elected Judge Wick
ersham Delegate to Congress, so his name was taken down. A
little later it placed the name of Henry Roden for Territorial
Senator with those of Wilson, Marshall and Strong. Vet some
what later the name of D. A. Sutherland was added as its other
candidate for Senator, and the names of W. T. Burns, E. if. Col
lins. Pan Driscoll and J. J. M daily were placed with the others as;
its candidates ;\>r membership in the House of Representatives.
At the election in November the people of the Nation elected
Wilson and .Marshall, and the people of the Fourth Division elect
ed Roden. Sutherland, Burns, Collins, Driscoll and Mulally, leav
onl) the name of J. F. A. Strong at the Pioneer masthead. In
April, the President appointed Major Strong Governor, and the
Pioneer's victory was comple e. Its straight ticket was success
ful. though i; took three elect ons to clean up the slate, and neces
sitated the election of Democrats, Republicans, Progressives and
Independents in political divisions of three different classifica
tions.
Commenting upon this remarkable chain of circumstances,;
tin- Pioneer modestly says;
"The Iditarod Pioneer does not claim any credit for
election of any of the gentlemen mentioned above. Their
own worth is responsible. But it is gratifying to learn
what the Iditarod Pioneer thought on July G all Alaska
thought August 13 and November 5, and President Wil
son approved April 18, 1913."
Those Senator- that are further reducing the tariff sched
ules from the rates fixed by the Underwood bill may desire to
prevent the House from getting all of the popularity.
ONE WOULD EXPECT BETTER THINGS OF LESLIE'S
THE revenue cutter Thetis has been converted into
a floating court and is about to proceed to the
Alaskan coast carrying a cargo of judges and court
officials. It will stop first at Sitka and from that point
go up all the navigable rivers. All cases that have
arisen since the close of navigation will be tried on board,
with juries called from the vicinity.?Leslie's Weekly.
At least Leslie's did not attempt to particularize just which
"navigable rivers" about Sitka will be ascended, nor did it ven
ture t-? >ay when "the close i f navigation" occurred at that place.
Really, >?ne would expect better things than this from Leslie's,
for which J. J. Underwood is a writer on Alaska topics and whose
own Robert I). Heinl has visited this Territory.
With two good pitchers, everybody hitting, and all on their
toes all the time that Douglas team is well calculated to develop
baseball enthusiasts. It is no wonder that all the people on the
other side of the channel are becoming fans.
Juneau Tide Lands
Bill Before Congress
(Continued from Page 1.)
in reference to the matter referred to'
in my l*-tt?-r and bill 1 a ill notify you
further."
Delegate to Secretary of the Interior
Delegate Wickers.hum. in writiig to
the Secretary of the Interior, said:
"Herewith I inclose tour your infor
mation a copy ot 11. K. 307'i. introduced
by me on June in, 1M3. and being
a bill to empower the tlovernc-r of
Alaska to survey the tide flats and
harbor area in frout of the town of
Juneau and also to survey a tract of
about seventy-seven acres north of
and udjoiuing the towu of Juneau; the
purpose beiug to reserve the h irbor
area and to sell the lots on the high ?
ground adjoining the town so tb'it the
town itself may be extended acd al
lowed to grow.
"Herewith I inclose a statement in!
relation to the redemption of the Ju
neau tide flats which was prepared by
the Juneau Commercial Club which
gives the reason why this should be
done. The town is very limited it. area
and unless it is permitted to extend
to this tide land must inevitably be
crippled for want of room.
"There is another item of In'erest
to your I>epartment which is nor. cov
ered by -he bill but which it may be
necessary to cover by some amend
ment The Auk Indians have a num
ber of houses situated on the shore
back of a part of the seventy-seven
acres of t de lands which is mentioned
in the bil . Some arrangement ought
to be made by which their village
could be surveyed and title conveyed
to them. Their property is not. on
t ie tide land proper but is immediate
ly adjoining and practically berween
the tide Und and Juneau.
"I wish this matter could he re
ferred to some one in your Depart
ment to whom I could make full ex
planation and if you will advl*e me
whom I can consult with as a repre
sentative of your Department I will
cull us suuu us may be and go over
ilie mailer fully, ll is a mailer of very
great importance to Juucuu, which lias
now reached its maximum or habitable j
area aud tuust have more ground."
