ALASKA DAILY EMPIRE
J. F. A. STltONG JOHN W. TROY, Editor. Telephone No. 3-7-4 Entered a* M-couU-cla?? matter November 7. lt*12 at the poatotllce at Ju neau.

SENATORS IT WAS to be expected that opposition would be developed in the I'nited States Senate to the passage of the Alaska rail mad bill bill. There are man\ people in this country who are ?ppo>ed to government ownership and operation of railroads, be sides tm rnU . > oi Congress. These are entitled to their opinions, which are doubtless honest and sincere. In fact many Alaskans, and warm friends of Alaska, are not wedded to the paternal prin ciples invoiced in government-owned enterprises including rail roads. liu: government-owned mil roads and steamship lines are not new things in the I'nited States. The government owns and operates the r'aiiatnu railroad which connects the cities ol Colon and Panama on the isthmus. The government also owns and op erates the Panama Steamship Company with a line ol steamers between New York and Coion. And these enterprises are suc cessiully managed too, and without noise or friction. And soon this same government ol ours will be operating the Panama Can al. owned by the people, and it need not be doubted that it too will be operated along successful lines. Y\ hy then, this opposition to government-owned and gov ernment-operated railroads in Alaska? It is not an experiment, for it has been tried as we have pointed out, and with success. The conditions found in Alaska are such as should command spe cific treatment. The pans followed in the settlement of the West can not now be applied to Alaska. Vast land grants were bestowed upon transcontinental railroads, without money and without price. That species ol paternalism would not be toler ated now. and yet it can not be expected that railroads will be constructed in Alaska by private individuals, or corporations, under existing conditions, without substantial aid in the form of subsidies or government guarantees of bonds for their con struction. Years ago the federal government was not at all slow in guaranteeing bonds for the building of railroads in the Phil ippines. and that w..s an experiment that proved successful. But in Alaska with one of its greatest natural resources tied up hard and fast, do Senators of the I'nited States think that men with money are going to tumble over each other in order to invest it in the building of Alaska railroads? That, indeed, would be an absurd deduction. 1 A* ft | If. then, the railroads necessary for the development 01 .Alas ka can not be provided except by the government itself?that government itself having placed barriers in the way of individ ual elfort?it is only a reasonable proposition that the govern ment should step in and furnish the means of transportation that the necessities of the Territory demand. Senators and others may well lay aside their preconceived or inherited ideas concern ing this question, so far as it appertains to Alaska. Alaska, among the possessions of the United States, stands in a class by itself, and. therefore, demands special consideration by Con gress. if it is to develop and prosper to the degree to which its magnificent resources entitle it. Members of Congress may well change their point of view at a time when the growth of a great section of a great country is at stake. Chinese on the island of Macao fired bombs and crackers to stop a cyclone by placating the gods. By the way, how recently did one Hatfield receive money for making rain fall in the Klon dike, and also in sunny, Southern California? Why then talk of the Chinaman or his gods, when attempting to placate a cy clone? ALASKA. A LAND OF MARVELS HOW vast a country is Alaska, and how little is known con cerning it or its great natural resources, its aboriginal in habitants and other striking features is well illustrated by an article from Nushagak, on the southern coast of Bering Sea, which was published in these columns yesterday. The article contained several distinct and interesting stories, besides that which told of the people who inhabit the fens and marshes of that section, who probably represent the lowest class of natives found in Alaska, and who exhibit the least amount of intelli gence. Their environment is probably responsible for their ab ject, poverty-stricken state, and the hand of the government has never been reached out to succor them and enable them to lead more comfortable, and. therefore, better lives. Certainly the most miserable class of natives are found in the Yukon and Kuskokwim deltas, their very remoteness from civilized centers adding to the difficulties of their precarious existence. It would seem as though those regions present a field for "uplift work." The habits, customs and modes of life as found among these peoples present a study that may be found no where else in North America, not even among the Eskimo tribes of the still farther North. The article referred to also furnishes stories of bird and an imal life, (if the fish found in the ajacent waters and the nu mtrous lakes and lagoons, with which the country abounds, while any one who has traversed the toe-twisting tundra need not be told about the insect life that is only found in its fullest fruition and activity among the endless swamps of that region.
