DELEGATE'S RECORD
ON HOME RULE
A chronological statement of Dele
gate James Wlckersham's various po
sitions and acts in connection with
the fight for self-government in Alas
ka discloses Just how spotted his rec
ord has been in this matter.
The record:
January 9, 1907.
Wroto a letter to Gov. W. B. Hog
gatt opposing Territorial government,
saying, among other things:
"1 regret very much that Waskey
and Calo have started off on the mis
taken idea of putting territorial gov
ernment ahead of all othor things for
Alaska. It certainly is a great mis
take, and one which will cost the Ter
ritory dear, lou are right In oppos
ing it and you ought not to hesi
tate. The population Is too sparse
and the taxable wealth is too small
to sustain local self-government. The
population is unsettled, and probably
out of the 6,000 or 8,000 men in this
mining camp not a hundred of them
will admit that they Intend to remain
in the territory the rest of their
lives." *
July 4, 1907.
In a speech at Fairbanks he said
that he had changed his mind and
had a'rrived at the conclusion that Al
aska should have self-government;
the declaration was In general terms, J
and, while accepted with pleasure by
the real supporters of self-government, i
it was by no means wholly sctisfac-1
tory
Later Same Year
Wrote a bill providing a commis
sion form of government for Alaska
with a portion of the members to be
appointed by the President at a salary!
of $3,000 each a year and a portion
to be selected by the people, the lat
ter to get $8 a day while the Legis
lature was in session.
Summer of 1908.
Declared for self-government dur
ing his campaign for Delegate to Con
gress. but his declarations wore so
guarded as to specific terms that
Gov. Swincford and others were not
wholly satisfied with them.
1909-10.
Presented bills in Congress provid
ing for a Legislature whose enact
ments would not be valid unless first
approved by Congress, and containing
other restrictions too numerous to
mention. Contained a clause that
would give full citizenship to the In
dians of Alaska. Terms of the bill
attracted little attention because the'
Delegate was making a hard fighti
against the passage of the proposed
Beveridge legislative commission bill
embodying the ideas of the Taft ad
ministration.
1?
January, 1912. *
After a year's work, Alaska Demo
crats succeeded iu gottlng the Dele
gate to consent to amend his bill so
as to make the enaotmonts of the
Legislature effective uuloss disapprov
ed by Congress, and to eliminate the
provision granting full citizenship to i
the Indians. Kofused to pormit amend- i
meats that would give the Territory j
control over the occupation or licer?? J
taxing law; the fisheries question; i
tho game laws; the police powors, and j
many other things. i
With the assistance of tho Demo- I
crats ho secured tho passage of tho i
bill. i
1913-14.
Devoted largely to a continuous at
tack on tho First Alaska Legislature. .<
December, 1913.
Overlooked the declaration of Pres
ident Woodrow Wilson that Alaska
should have a "full Territorial form
of government."
April 20, 1914.
Iutroducod a bill that providod that
after Its passago the Alaska Territor
ial Legislature would have no power
to legislate concerning the acquiring
of mining claims. s
The provision was a "Joker" in a
bill purporting to ropeol the mining
law passed by tho last Alaska Legis
lature. The Democratic Houso com
mltteo on public landB turned tho
bill down on the ground that It wa6 a
proper matter for' the Alaska Legisla
ture to handlo itself.
If the bill had passed tho Territor
ial government would not have had
any power ovor the two most import
ant industries of the Territory. The
Organic Act Itself exempted the fish
eries from tho control of the Terri
tory. _
September and October, 1914.
In his compaigu for re-election the
Delegate says THE PRESIDENT'S
DECLARATION FOR A FULL TER
RITORIAL FORM OF GOVERNMENT
IS A "FALSE NOTE." HE SAYS WE
ALREADY HAVE IT.

Keep Alaska
out of hands
of Political
Boss?
i
The primary and underlying principle of the Non-Parti
san movement in this division is fair play, and the right of
representation in the Territorial Legislature by all of the
factors and elements now working out our political and in- 1
dustrial development.
? i
It is not the off-spring of the mining interests; it is not
the child of the fishing interests; it is not the instrument J
of the mercantile and trading interests; it is not the crea- ]
tion of the professional class; and it is not the agent of the
laboring people. But it is the-natural result of an earnest, j
patriotic and characteristically Alaskan desire by people en- J
gaged in all of these pursuits to keep the law-making of i ?
Alaska clean and free from contamination by any preda- r
tory or venal interest. Nor is it designed as a subtle means 1
of worming into the control of federal appointments, or
party dictation; for in its conventions and on its tickets are v
men of all parties and every shade of political opinion. And I
in matters of national or partisan interest these men are
d
perfectly free to follow their political beliefs without re- i
straint or embarrasment. The only compact the Non-parti- ^
san nominees have with one another is that they will, if
elected, work shoulder to shoulder in an effort to give a
square deal to everybody, and legislate for the good of
Alaska and protect the interests of this division.
