REAL ALASKAN PROBLEMS
The great problems before the pcoplo of Alaska and
Gastlneau channel are not political except insofar as
political questions touch them?and they are not parti
san unless politicians, political conventions or other in
fluences make them so. The problems the people of
Alaska have to solve are those of development?devel
opment of resources and opportunities and development
of government. The people of Alaska populate an Em
pire whose destiny Is largely in their hands. The foun
dations must be laid for a great commonwealth. Rail
roads must be constructed, automobile and wagon
roads must be built to feed the railroads. The natural
resources of the Territory must be opened up. Room
and occupation must be provided for people.
On Gastlneau channel we have our own problems,
and they are an Important part of the wholo. We have
the greatest potential gold producing camp on the Amer
ican continent. We have a natural center for the fish
eries industry. We have the inevitable metropolis of
the great Southeastern Alaska country. It is our work
to see that our community reaps the reward that her
location and surroundings warrant. We have the oppor
tunity to build a great city here. It Is our duty to our
selves. to those who come after us. to those who may
profit by casting their lot with us. and to Americans
everywhere to build the city.
These are problems of primary importance, and
they are problems In which there should be full and free
cooperation. Beside them the petty ambitions of indi
viduals and politicians sink Into signifcance. The politi
cal course of our community and our Territory should
be shaped solely with reference to its effect upon them.
There should be no deviation from the course in order
to promote ambitious palaverers and issue-jugglers or
lo vent petty grouches or malice.
PROGRAM OP "OUR DELEGATE."
"Oar Delegate is going to fight for Statehood for
Alaska," says the Fairbanks News-Miner.
"Oar Delegate" has not said so. He said that he was
going to introduce a Statehood bill. In other words, he
said that he proposed to introduce an enabling act This!
would provide for the election of delegates to a consti
tutional convention, the holding of a constitutional con
vention, an election on the question of ratifying the
work of the constitutional convention.
He did not even say that he would "fight" for the
passage of this bill. Only that he would Introduce it.
What he did say was that he would" fight" to se
cure more powers for the Territorial Legislature?on
the questions of GAME and FISH.?for the passage of
Lane's Development Board bill, for public buildings,
and. in effect, tor the abolition of the road commission.
DON'T BLAME THE SOCIALISTS.
The circumstance that Edward Krause is a Social-1
ist and was a candidate of that party last year for the
Legislature in the First Division does not constitute a
; count in an Indictment against the Socialist party, or
the Socialistic theory of government The Bmpiro'a
political convictions ore as far from Socialism as one
pole is frqm the other, but there is no proper place for
prejudice and passion or hate and mallco in discussions
of public matters.
Criminals know nothing of party lines or theorioa
of government, and the use of tho fact that a criminal
belongs to a certain political party, or church, or fnc
tlou, or school of thought, against such party etc., an
swers no argument: it simply appeals to prejudice or
If Federal officials are running Alaska under Its
present form of government it must be satisfactory to
those who oppose a "full Territorial form of govern
ment," for they are doing all in their power to keep
things just as they are for several years, at least. Dele^
gato Wlckersham admits that when he says he will
fight to have the Territorial Legislature have control
over the fish and game. He also admits it in the ex
planation that ho attaches to his statement that amounts
in an apology for introducing a statehood bill. He says
even if his bill should pass it would be quite a while
before there would be statehood.
^ The extension of Juneau's city limits means the ex
tension of self-government, and the extension of self
government is another name for more power for pro
At least Mr. Bryan has never announced a farewell
tour. He admits that re will continue to campaign
around the country as long as he lives.
The Dispatch has quit trying to discuss issues. It
Is just barking.

HARMONY URGED FOR KETCHIKAN
What are we doing for ourselves? For tho town?
Are wo working In harmony, or are we pulling every
whichwayf Are we merely watching and looking at
the other fellow Just to criticise his action without con
tributing our knowledge, or are wo Just trying to find
fault? Are we desirisus to face a situation tho way
we would like to have it? These aro the questions that
should occupy our minds during the long winter months
ahead of us. There is plenty of work for us all to do.
Then why not get together and do it.
The trouble with most of us it that wo are too
prone to criticise other's feeble attempts, to correct pub
evils without bothering our heads il giving whatever
help wo can. We prefer to stay away from all public
discussions Just for the sake of being free later to say,
"I told you so." It is to bo regretted?it is the truth
nevertheless?that often times the very men whose in
terest Is larger than anyone elso In a community like
ours will neglect to take any part in the discussion
of tho welfare of the town. Just because things do not
work according to their own individual lines.
Now, the question Is, is Ketchikan to become a
back number, a town torn with dissentlons, or is it
to be a town where harmony and public spirit work to
gether for the welfare of all? There is all the work
that a united community can do ahead of us to be done, i
and it is up to us to do it. To that end, wo must get
together, as a divided community cannot accomplish
