Davidson declares that physicians and others throughout the Territory are evading the vital statistics law which provlaeB for a system of reg istering marriages, births, and deaths that occur within the Territory, and he is sending out circular letters to U. S. Commissioners, warning them to take action that will tend toward the enforcement of the law. The law In question was passed by the Alaska legislature and is a part of tho session laws of the Territory. "It worked beautifully," said Sec retary Davidson, "until the court de cision shattered the revenue law pass ed by the legislature on the ground that under the Wickersham home rule bill that body did not have the power to Impose additional duties on Feder al officials. That decision in the poll tax case rendered useless the vital statistics law because the point raised in it and on which It was declared in valid is also an influential feature of tho vital statistics law which also Im posed additional duties on Federal of ficials. For a time this office has tried to keep the law in force with out the aid of the U. S. Commission ers and the co-operation of profession al people with which it has to do, but the results have not been satisfac tory. "Recently Congress passed an act validating the revenue laws passed by the legislature and granting power to the legislature to Impose additional duties on Federal officials of the Ter ritory," continued Secretary David son, "and the vital statistics law is now in force and must be complied with." The curative law passed by Con gress has been made a part of Sec retary Davidson's circular letter and U. S. Commissioners are instructed! that under the law it is their duty to provide ministers, physicians and un dertakers with the necessary blank forms on which to make returns of marriages, births, and deaths, and such matters as come under their care in the exercise of their respective call ings that require being recorded un der the legislative act. ANCIENT ORDER Oh UOOU FELLOWS. At the Orpheum tonight "The An cient Order of Good Fellows" in two reels will head the strong bill. "Mount ed Officer Flynn" is a clever detective comedy. "Within The Hour," a pret ty child story by the Selig Co., and "Willie's Decoys," a laughable com edy by the Blograph Co. Sunday, an extra good bill has been selected and includes "Pathe Weekly" "Who Will Marry Mary" and a side splitting 2-reel comedy entitled "Beau ty Unadorned." This will surely drive sway the blues.

CHEEK TALKS ABOUT ISSUES "The voterB of Alaska, especially the women voters," snld C. P. Check, Democratic candldnte for the lowor house of tho Alaska Legislature on the Democratic ticket, "have a strong claim for tho consideration as well as has Mr. Bunnell, our candidate for Delegate to Congress. The first plank In tho plntform adopted at the divis ional convention hero In Juneau pledg es the Legislature to adopt the com munity property law and It should re ceive attention. It Is of vital Interest to every woman and child In Alaska. "As the laws now are," continued Mr. Cheek, "a husband may dispose of all his property or the property acquired after marriage without his wife joining him In the deed and with out her consent to tho transaction, and sho has no rcdrcsB. We are pledg ed to pass a law granting to women a community of interest in all prop erty acquired After marriage?such a law as Is on the statute books of noarly every Stato In the Union. This Is the first plank of our platform and our candidates, if elected, must keep the pledgo and translate It Into law. The platform on which the Non-Parti san candidates are asking votes is silent on this matter, and the simple statoment that it favors granting the women something they already have I ?tho right to vote." "We are also," said Mr. Cheek, "op posed to spending a lot of money bo longing to the people In the needless work of revising the Alaska code simply a scheme to provide some easy money for a few lawyers." Commenting on the other planks In tho Democratic Divisional convention, Mr. Cheek said: "We are asking protection to home labor and home Institutions; relief for the destitute and adequate ap propriations for the maintenance of tho Pioneers' Home at Sitka and we want all Territorial officers elected by the people. Wo are looking forward to Statehood and believe we should I prepare for It by bringing responsl ! bllity direct to the people so that they may choose their own agents for public business. ?<YK7K(1a If lu fotin fltnf n riomftpmllp Delegate to Congress will be in an infin itely better position to work for Alas ka's interests in the national law-mak ing body, it is equally true that the peoplo speaking through memorials passed by a Democratic legislature would also find a more willing ear among Congressmen. It is but natur al that in passing upon requests from legislative and other bodies through memorials that the source of such de mands be scrutinized and if there is nothing on which to place the respon sibility, there will be loss chance of getting consideration." Mr. Cheek says that while lie thinks every man on the Democratic ticket for the legislature will be elected as well as Mr. Bunnell, that he is leav ing no opportunity pass to make a vote for all.
