Alaska must,c$l]ect and-prepare tts
own exhibit fbr^fho world's fair that
wilt be held In San Francisco next
year If It la to have anything approach
I lng an adequato representation of the
resources, the development and the
scenic beauties of the Territory. Such
Is the positive statement made by Gov.
J. F. A. Strong this morning. And.
It might be added, there remains but
a few weeks In which to arrange a
collection from points in the Interior
and along the Arctic ocean amT Ber
ing sea coasts, and but a few months
for the work elsewhere in Alaska.
Speaking of the matter this morn
ing, Gov. Strong said:
"If Alaska is to have an exhibit of
its natural and other resources at the
Panama Pacific International Exposi
tion at San Francisco next year It
will be up to the people of Alaska
themselves to do -the work of collect
ing and preparing exhibits. This fact
is made plain by the refusal of Con
gress to make an appropriation for
this purpose. Congress last year
made an appropriation of 350,000 for
government exhibits of all kinds, In
cluding those of Alaska, Hawaii, Por
to Rico, District of Columbia, Pana
ma, Canal Zone, and a half dosen
scientific societies and museums. Of
this 1 appropriation the altogether In
adequate sum of 110,000 was allotted
to Alaska by the government exhibit
board whose headquarters are in
Washington. This amount will be ex
pended by the different Washington
bureaus such as the Bureau of Mines,
Bureau of Fisheries, Forestry Bureau,
Geological Survey, et cetera, and the
Department of Agriculture In the prep
aration of exhibits. The government
exhibit board will pay all costs of
transportation of exhibits to add from
San Francisco.
"An effort was made to secure an
allotment from the Alaska appropria
tion for the employment of a collector
of exhibits In Alaska who would also
enlist the aid of the people lu the
various districts In the work. The
government exhibit board, however,
felt that the necessary money could
not be spared for this purpose. The
Alaska exhibits will be placed in the
Mines building in San Francisco, a
floor space of about five thousand feet
having been set aside tor this purpose,
which from the present outlook will
be more than ample.
"In order to enlist the cooperation
of the people of the Territory In the
work of securing exhibits, letters have
been sent to all the commercial bodies (
of Alaska in the Incorporated towns
and to the United States Commission
ers of all the precincts, asking them to
take up this matter with the people of
their respective communities to the
end that something definite may be
accomplished along this line.
"If Alaska Is to be represented at
San Francisco In anything like an ad
equate manner the unselfish co-opera
tion of all the people of the Territory
will be needed. Alaska la In a pecul
iar position Inasmuch as It has no
funds of its own that can be used for
exhibition purposes. The Territory
of Hawaii appropriated $100,000 from
Its own treasury; the Philippines,
$400,000, and Porto Rico, $50,000, and
these territories, therefore, will no
doubt have flr.e exhibits at San Fran
cisco. It Is a condition, therefore, and
not a theory that confronts the peo
ple of Alaska. As usual, they will
have to depend upon themselves if
Alaska's products and resources are to
be effectively represented there.
The'GoVeronr's office will co-oper
ate in ':every way possible, and Inas
much as Alaska Is now commanding
more attention than ever before In Its
history from the people of all parts
of the world, and also in view of Its
promised development on a compre
hensive scale, it Is most Important
that a good showing be made at the
San Francisco exposition."

night. The roll was signed by 40 mem

A sage was asked once If his ambi

"Docs the job of a prophet, then,
have disadvantages?"
"It does, and of the most serious
kind. The reputation of being a pro

The sage Is quite right, but fortu

what does It mean to be a "live
