SHOUP FOR MORE HOME RULE FOR ALASKA (Continued from Page 1.) or any municipality Interfere with nor uttcmpt in anywise to limit the act | of Congress to prevent and punish; gambling" ? ? ? nor (6) shall "spirit-j uous or intoxicating liquors be manu factured or sold, except under such regulations and restrictions as Con gress shall provide": nor (7) shall the "Territory or any municipal incorpor ation therein, have power to author ize or create or assume any bonded in debtedness whatever, nor to borrow money In the name of the Territory or municipal division thereof, nor to pledge the faith of the people of the same for any loan whatever, either di rectly or indirectly": (81 "No tax shall | be levied in excess of one per centum: upon the assessed valuation of prop erty therein in any one year, nor shall j any Incorporated town or municipal-1 ity levy any tax for any purpose in excess of two per centum upon the assessed valuation of property there in in any one year"; (9) the limitation upon a county form of government. Then this long list of restrictions, which are in addition to those in the other Territorial organic acts and which I have enumerated, is ended with the following specific grant of power, namely: "Provided, further, that nothing here in contained shall be held to abridge the right of the legislature to modify tho qualifications of electors by ex tending the elective franchise to wom en." Because of the scattered population and geographical features of the country outside of the First division, it may be doubted whether a county form of government would operate to tho best advantage as long as Alaska remains undivided. But when the First division is made a separate Ter ritory. as it should bo, there will be no question but we should have coun ty governments. That, however, is an other subject. That provision should be made to supply the other omissions, seems to me to be very apparent. Most of thepo restrictions are the result of the fabricated arguments which have been advanced to Congress for many years against r.elf-govern ment for Alaska. Congressmen have! been made to believe that Alaskans were out of sympathy with the efforts! of the government to conserve the Al-1 aska game supply; whereas, as a mat-j ter of fact, the best protection the Al- ] aska game has at the present time is j the strongest public sentiment against j any sort of wasteful destruction. The' same thing prevails to an even more j marked degree regarding the commer- j cial fishes. The inhibition of the organic act1 in the matter of gambling is a gra-j tuitous reflection upon the citizenship of Alnskn. The same distrust of the Alaska people apparently impelled Congress to reserve to itself the con trol of the liquor question. The only sufferers at the present time from the inability to create bond ed indebtedness are the municipali ties, most of which have reached a state of permanent development and | growth under which they are justly entitled to bond public improvements, in any event, I can see no reason why Congress should appoint itself a guar dian over us in that way. This Alaska organic act has been further limited, and I believe beyond the intention of Congress, in its con struction and application by Federal department and executive ofHcials. I shall not weary you with an ex tended recital of the very numerous reasons why it should be done; but it is my positive opinion that practi cally all of the trouble in the Alaska laws, particularly in their application of Southeastern Alaska, would be elim inated if the matter were put under the unrestricted control of the Alaska people. is. h. millwee!
