THE example in patriotic citizenship set by the big Southeast
em Alaska mining companies?the Alaska-Treadwell, the
Alaska-Juneau and the Alaska-Gastineau?in paying or an
nouncing their intention to pay their Territorial taxes, and the
statements made by B. L. Thane and R. A. Kinzie, the senior
officers of these companies in Alaska, in which they set aside
any temporary advantage that might accrue to their compan
ies for the greater good that follows the unhampered conduct of
public business, should have a wholesome effect in this Territory.
This is a time in the history of Alaska that calls for construc
tive citizenship. It is a time when carping critics and disor
ganizes could do incalculable mischief if permitted to lead. It
is not a time to stand too firmly on technicalities when the in
tent of law-makes is clear, and the administrative officers are
trying to carry out the intent in good faith in the interest of the
It would be a great thing for Alaska if othes would follow
the good example of these captains of industry. The dilemma in
which the Territory finds itself will not continue for long. Eith
er Congress or the Territorial Legislature will rectify the error,
if an error has been made, before long. In the meantime we can
not afford to permit chaotic conditions to prevail.
The President's vacation ought not to be delayed by the
representatives of the trusts who are crowding in upon him with
tardy professions of a willingness to obey the law. These peni
tents are perfectly able to obey the law while he recuperates his
health. They will find no change in him or in the law when he
returns to work.
ALASKA ANOTHER NEW ENGLAND?
(New York World J
WE HAVE not yet been educated to the point of thinking of
Alaska as another New England. For that reason some
of Secretary Lane's statements in his annual report may i
seem overstrained. But he is dealing with simple facts and
The great peninsula that at the time of its purchase from
Russia was contemptuously called "Seward's Folly" comprises a
territory one-fifth the size of the United States. For agricultur
al purposes. Secretary Lane says, "it has been estimated that
there are 50,000,000 acres of land that will make homes for a
people as sturdy as those of New England," and which "will pro
duce in abundance all that can be raised in the Scandinavian
countries?the hardy cereals and vegetables, the meats and ber
ries, off which 9,000,000 people live in Norway, Sweden and Fin
But after forty-five years, except for the exploitation of its,
mines, fisheries and forests, Alaska is unused and undeveloped
land, with less than 1,000 miles of wagon road and practically
no railroads. Considering how keen has been the demand for
public lands where the Government has recently opened Indian
reservations for settlement, Secretary Lane is convinced that
the time has come to start an Alaska boom. If only 7,000 out
of 46,000 applicants for registration could be provided with home
steads on a tract of land in Montana, why may not settlers for
Alaska be found if opportunity is afforded them in the Northern
