ALASKAN INDIANS AND CITIZENSHIP.
THE ultimate destiny of the Indians of Alaska is full Americar
citizenship with its rights and manifold duties, including
the right to vote and participate in all the affairs of gov
ernment. This is the prize that should be held up by the white
race as an inducement for the Indians of the North to adjust
themselves to the fast changing conditions in this Territory. AH
assistance should be rendered the Indians in the work that they
have undertaken in their organization, the Alaska Native Broth
erhood, the purpose of which is better to qualify the members of
their race for citizenship when the time shall arrive to bestow it
However, no real friend of the Indians should urge that the
franchise be granted to them until they are ready to use it in
telligently. The need for care in this respect is all the greater
because of the unsettled conditions. The status of our govern
ment is in process of evolution. The duties of citizenship in Al
aska for the next few years will require educated intelligence of
a high order. The road leading toward the future commonwealth
should be marked by those who have had experience in self-gov
ernment and self-restraint. The work that lies tf&fore us is not
that which should be performed by a race that is just emerging
from conditions of barbarism.
The welfare of both the white race and the Indians in Alas
ka demands that we should profit by the bitter experience of the
South from the premature enfranchisement of a race unaccus
tomed to self-government. The situation demands more of citi
zens than most of the Indians are qualified to render. It would
be a cruel injustice to them to place burdens upon them that they
are not prepared for.
Allen Weir, Washington's first Secretary of State, has con
tributed a last word to the discussion of the question as to the
proper age at which to marry, a problem that is still holding the
attention of many Eastern newspapers, preachers and sociolo
gists. Mr. Weir applies Artemus Ward's rule for setting hens.
Artemus said that "the best and in fact the only proper time to
set a hen is when she wants to set."
NEW NATIONALISM GONE MAD.
MRS. EVA MORLEY MURPHY, who announces her candi
dacy for the Progressive nomination for Congress in Kan
has, has adopted a platform for herself that should bring
joy to New Nationalists. She favors National prohibition, Na
tional woman suffrage, National workmen's compensation, Nation
al minimum wages, and National anti-child labor laws, etc.
All of these matters have heretofore been regarded as prop
er subjects for State control, and headway has been made in the
regulation of each of them by the separate States.
The disposition of some of our Progressive friends to take
every reform to the National government is not in the interest of
real progress. Progress is made faster by permitting the more
progressive States to take the lead and demonstrate the useful
ness of different methods. Those that prove satisfactory are
taken up immediately by other States, and amended in such way
as to make them applicable to conditions within their boundar
ies. By this method they spread from State to State.
The practicability of the workingmen's compensation law,
for instance, under State control has been demonstrated. The
law is now in effect in Washington, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin,
California and Oregon, and New York has just enacted it. That
it will be passed by other States is a foregone conclusion. It is
working perfectly in Washington, the first State to develop it in
its fullest measure. ?
In fact, it has been demonstrated in Alaska that workmen's
compensation can be worked out even without a State-wide
law. The Treadwell mines have a perfectly working industrial
insurance system in full operation in their business, and it is
giving so much satisfaction that there has not been a personal
injury damage suit against the Treadwell company for almost
a decade, notwithstanding that more than 1500 men have been
employed there all the time.
Every town in the country?not an exception between Ma
chias and Barrow?has a champion baseball team. There is not
a doubt about it. It has been decided during the winter beyond
question or cavil. Every radiator fan will present to you the
indisputable evidence if you will give him half a chance at
any time before the opening of the baseball season.
The Prince Rupert Empire says Whitehorse was named in
honor of "Stroller" White, who got his name from the "languid
way in which he starts on a stampede." That is about two horses
RECEIVED GOOD NEWS
This is the Fairbanks News' descrip
tion of the receipt of the news of
the pasasge of the Alaska rail
road bill by the people of the Tanana
"Everybody is happy. The Alaska
railroad bill passed the Senate this
afternoon and all Fairbanks is cele
brating, the whistles of the city hav
ing announced the glad tidings short
ly ofter two o'clock this afternoon.
"Simultaneously with the blowing
of the N. C. whistle, a fire alarm was
turned in at the city hall and the boys
of the fire department therefore had a
run in celebration of the big event
However, the alarm proved to be a
false one. as, when both rigs of the
department reached the N. C. wood
yard. where the fire was supposed to
be. all they found was a laborer pil
ing wood and not dreaming of fires,
railroads or anything else.
"The origin of the first alarm seem:
to be a mystery. It being the opinlot
of some that a practical joker wai
back of the entire proceeding. Th<
boys of the fire department Bay tha
it makes no difference to them ai
long as they made the run as a cele
bration, although they are of the opln
ion that the joker, whoever he wai
could have given them a much shortei
run had he wished.
"Shortly after the news from Wash
ington was received at the News-Mine
office and telephoned over town, thi
flags began to come to the fore. Th<
flag over the American Bank of Alas
ka was the first to come to light, th<
banner at the First National Bank be
ing a close second. Other prepara
tions for a celebration are still belni
made, and the city will therefore b
In gala attire all day tomorrow.
"Excitement is at its height all ove
the city. On all corners people ar
to be Been talking over the passage
of tho bill and many are the congratu
lations and handshakes which are be
ing passed among the business men
and the citizens in general. 'Pros
