Gov. J. F. A. Strong was present at ' the meeting and in an earnest and il- 1 lumiuating talk 'aid the matter before the meeting, explaining that if a spec- 1 ial appropriation was not secured Al aska will practically be without repre sentation at the exposition, and also telling what steps the governor's office and the delegate to congress had taken to secure an appropriation. In reply' to the question raised that the govern- ' ment might object to making an np- 1 propriation for an Alaska exhibit on ' account of having voted $35,000,000 for a railroad. Gov. Strong stated that ac- ' cording to the bill as passed, the cost ' of building the Alaska railroad will be 1 taken from funds realized through the sale of Alaska lands and this could not ' be urged as grounds for denying an : adequate appropriation for the exposi- j tioo.

Alaska's worth , as a potential asset of the Nation has been established.and now It remains - for Its people to act in unity that they may enjoy the fullest fruition of this vise and progressive legislation.
