FAIRBANKS' DREAM THAT
IS COMING TRUE
?&
There is an old love song entitled,
"When Dreams Come True." The sen
timent is beautiful, but who is there
that believes that they do?
Yet Fairbanks dreamed of a rail
road long years ago. It was only a
dream, though, and dismissed as such.
The first one to make his dream pub
licly known, remarked that he would
stay in the Interior until he could ride
out on the cars. He is still In the In
terior.
But this is one of the dreams which
is coming true. When Congress con
venes again in a few days, the Alaska
railroad bill is first on the docket It
has passed through the preliminary
fires, its weak points have been
strengthened, it has no determined op
position, and we are only waiting for
the news of its passage to flash West
and North.
? Then the real stampede to Alaska
will begin. It will, of course, be no
such rough and tumble affair as the
days of '98, but North In search of
homes will come the sturdy stock from
the United States, a steady influx of
settlers and Investors that will double
the population before the road is com
pleted.
Again 'It is opportune to say to the
pld-timers who have never been able
to make a clean-up, now is the mo
ment to cast about for something to
seize onto. This is legitimate. You
ire entitled to it. It Is not a case of
preying upon "suckers" who may be
attracted North; it is a case of realiz
ing on property that can be worked
when transportation becomes cheap?
when the dream of Alaska comes true.
