tho Japanese crow, nud although he
admitted having been struck by Ka
jlta In a fight In the bunk houoo a
few nights before Kajlta was killed,
he said that ho had no enmity ror the
foreman as a result of the fight and
that he was "not tho kind of a man
to hold a grudge."
He dald Katjlta had been lu an an
gry mood at the lunch tabic, and then
told of the killing of Kajlta. Ho said
Kajlta came in and pointed a gun at

he grabbed Kajita aud tried to twist
his arm, to make him let go of the
It was during the scuffle that Yam*
guchi Is alleged to have showered tho
blows on Kajlta's head, which killed
the foreman.
Story Is Unshaken.
Under a grilling cross-examinatlou,
conducted by Deputy District Attorney
Folsom. Yamoshlta's story was not al
tered. He repeated that Kajlta's hand
had held a pistol, and that he believed
ho was saving Yamaguchl's life by
grabbing the foreman.
Before Yamashlto took tho stand
Mr.H ellenthal asked that Frank Her
mit, a local Japanose bo sworn as In
terpreter. Strong objection was made
by tho government attorneys and Mr.
Hellonthal's request was denied. The
interpretation has been done by H.
Yosimashl, editor of a Japanese news
paper at Seattle.
Over the objection of District At
torney Reagan, a map which was
drawn by Hermit under the defend
ant's directions, and purporting to
show the location of buildings and
walks at Sitkoh Bay was introduced
03 the defendant's exhibit A. As tho
examination of Yamasklta proceeded
the defendant marked on the chart the
positions ho testified various Japan
ese Involved in. tho case were in at
the time of tho fatal quarrel.
A ripple of laughter was caused
when the defendant, in trying to tell
Judge Jennings the only difference ho
iould sec between the chart and the
ictuaj eye-picturo of the Sitkoh Bay
rannery, was that "one is a house,
md this is a picture."
As to the "Indignation meeting,"
which is alleged to have been hold by j
he cannery Japanese, to protest'
tgainst Kajita as foreman, Yamashital
'aid under oath that he was first call
;d to the meeting by Tanaka, and that
vhen ho entered tho building the gen
sral talk had sounded to him as dero
ratory to tho foreman.
When Yamashlta entered tho bunk-'
iousc whoro Kajita mot his death, he
estlfied. "Vonisaki, Akabanc and Yam

CaJIta came in, drawing his pistol

onclusion of Mr. Hellenthal's cross

ho testimony of Tanaka that Kajita

DELEGATE SAYS

'
in Southeastern Alaska, at least,
the Territory, the major portion of
Delegate WScUerskam's support came
from Republicans and thoso who op
pose the Democratic party and the
administration. Most of his nowepa
per support came from tho anti-Dom
ocratio clement.
Favor# Territorial Control.
Delegate Wickorsham followed this
statement by an argument In favor
of the control of tho fur and gamo
animals of Alaska by the Territory of
Alaska, and In doing it ho supported
his argument by declarations of Presi
dent Woodrow Wilson and Gov, J. F.
A. Strong in favor of "full Territorial
government" for Alaska. Tho com
mitteo was considering a bill extend
ing tho authority of tho Department
of Commcrco over fur and game ani
mals for Alaska.
Talks "Full Territorial Form of Gov
ernment"
Tho printed report of tbo hearings
before tho ways and means sub-com
mittee contains tho following, appear
ing Just after the political statement
given abovo:
"(Wickorsham speaking):?I want
to call your attention to his (President
Wilson's) message of Decomber 2,1913
at page 9, in speaking of the Alaskan
railway bill which he very greatly ap
proved and strongly supported, and
which particularly appealed to us?"
"The Chairmun?And which passed.
"Mr. Wickereham.?And passed with
your assistance and with tho assists
ancc of the Ropublcians and Progress
ives also. He (Percsldent Wilson),
said:
" 'The people of Alaska should
be given full Territorial form of
government.'
"I have had a great deal of doubt
about Just what this means?
"The People of Alaska Should
Bo Given tho Full Territorial
Form of Government.'
"Standing alone it does not mean
as much to me as it does if it stands
in connection with what he said un
der the Alaska railway bill. And it
has been taken as a text by tho peao
ple of Alaska, and they have support
ed Mr. Wilson very strongly and very
largely on account of that little toxt.
We have a full Territorial form of gov
crnmont in Alaskn now. We havo n
Governor appointed by tho President
of the United States and confirmed by
the Senate, as woll as all the other
Territories have had. Wo havo a leg
islature elected by the people, with '
the usual limitations and powors glv
en them, and wo havo the samo ays- (
tem of courts as the othc^^Terrltorlos
have had. Mr. Wilson knew all of
that when he inado that statement, j
and we in Alaska have concluded un
animously by that statement that Mr. (
Wilson meant It was desirable that ,
a wider range of power bo given to j
the people of Alaska In building up
and developing that country. It 18 a
great country, and it has immonso ro- J
sources of all kinds in it, and wo havo
a strong, healthy vigorous, virile poo
plo up there trying to develop it and j
do something with it. But when we
got the Alaska Legislature, under the
organic act giving that legislature au- r
thority. we found so many blocks and (
chocks In it that we were discouraged {
and under this statement of President
Wilson's we felt that wo were going
to get some of those blocks and chocks }
removed and enablo tho people up
there not only to dovelop the country,
but to develop tho popular govcrnmont
of the people, by tho people, and for
tho people ?????? t
Gov. Strong Knew What Full Torrltor- *
lal Form of Government Meant. c
Continuing, Delegate Wickersham i
said:
"Now on tho othor matter, about \
the Territorial Legislature, tho Gov
ernor say
" "The powers conferred upon the i
Territorial Legislature by the or
ganic act passed by Congress and
approved August 24, 1912, are ex
tromely limited, and In view of

commercial developmont, both of

of the Legislature should be en

mercial expansion has already be

wise anil liberal policy which this
administration has adopted toward
this Territory; and tho rclcf that
this policy assures from the hith
