? GEN. DISTIN IS
BOOSTING ALASKA
; ?+?
? Gen. W. L. Dlstin is at his old home
! In Qulncy, III., and the Qulncy Dully
| Herald of Fob. 6th, contains a two-col
? umn story concerning him and his
views on Alaska.
I Among other things the Herald says:
1 "Gen. William L. Dlstin, the man
! who has served as surveyor-general
| of Alaska for a greater number of
; years than any other man living, ar
? rived In Qulncy Thursday afternoon
I at 3:30 o'clock and Is now at the homo
[ of his daughter, Mrs. L. E. Emmons,
? Jr., at 2304 Main street, for a visit.
, Ho will be In Qulncy for soino time to
visit his older friends and then ho In
tends to mnke a trip on which he will
visit Chicago, Cincinnati and Washing
j ton. While he has no dellnlte plans
for the future other than that of en
Joying a well earned vacation, Gen.
Dlstin will In course of time return
to Alaska.
Alaska His Home.
"Alaska Is the adopted homo of
Gen. Distin. He was In business in
Quincy and his relatives reside here.
The Gem City naturally will always
have a warm spot in his heart and
when ho makes the trip hero, he is
always glad to do so, because of the
ties that draw him. After sixteen
years c' service in Alaska, a coun
try of wonderful resources which he
assisted in developing, that counti.v
will always be his adopted home.
r "Gen. Distin believes in Alaska. He
? has seen its great possibilities and
!! knows its wonderful opportunities. In
t j a chat with a representative of The
', Herald last evening, he said that every
t I Amerlcau c.tlzcn who can afford to
! travel should make it his duty to vis
|jit Alaska. 'See Alaska and the Unit
? ed States first before seeing other
, | countries,' is his advice. 'The prin
" cipal reason why Alaska has not de
? veloped still more than it has, Is be
? cause the great mass of American peo
| pie know nothing of it. They imagine
', it a great waste of snow and Ice with
. | no other possibilities than mining and
j llshlng.' If the American people would
; visit Alaska, many would return to
that country to stay. The country
needs people more than anything else
1 to carry out its slogan. 'Develop Al
j aska."
t "Gen. Distin is a gr^at admirer of
; both Governor and Mrs. J. F. A. Strong.
? i He says Governor Strong not only
! has the executive ability, but .he knows
; j w:hnt the country needs. He will
make an ideal Governor and will do
much to develop the country.
* Supports Railroad Bill.
I "Gen. Distin is one of the staunchest
| supporters of the proposed railroad
I which will open up the interior. This
will give Alaska an opportunity to
colonize its millions of fertile acres
which are adapted to dairying and
; farming. Besides making possible the
development of the untold wealth of
j gold and other metals.
Praises Administration.
"Gen. Distln is expecting great
things for Alaska from the present ad
ministration. Under the past two the
great cry was for conesrvation. Grad
ually the United States is realizing
that they have a great 'treasure box,'
as the General calls it. The people
begin to realize its importance and the
wisdom shown by the present adminis
tration so far-augurs well for a great
er development of the wonderful coun
try in the North."
