Alaska, under the Act of March 3, 1879. THE GOVERNOR'S REPORT. Gov. Strong's annual report, released by the Depart ment of the Interior for publication today, Is one of the best documents on Alaska, her development, her re sources and her noeds that ever has been Issued. The recommendations are pertinent, needful and strongly set forth. The report Is lucid. Illuminating and refreshing It Is written In Gov. Strong's best style, and that Is to say that it is Interesting reading and possesses literary merit of high order. All of Gov. Strong's reports have been excellent, but it Is no reflection on previous efforts ! to say that the 1915 report excels Its predlcessors. It Congress woold but give life to the suggestions of the Governor of Alaska, contained In his reports, con ditions in the North would be far more to the liking of the people. Gov. Strong has mapped a course for the government in connection with Alaska that is In keep ing with American principles, and that marks the short est and most practicable course to desired results In Northern affairs. FAVORS MORE POWER FOR TERRITORY. Some of those newspapers which have commented upon the report of Gov. Strong (prior to its release by the Interior Department) have said that he favored im mediate statehood for Alaska. The Governor made no such recommendation. He did urge that Congress confer additional powers on the Territorial Legislature, and said that the "need of more extended power for the legisla ture will become more and more insistent nntll such time as the Territory is ready for Statehood." and he urged that the sooner the additional power be granted the Legislature the "greater will be the benefits ac cruing to the people." Tho paragraph dealing with this matter in the ro port of Gov. Strong is as follows: "In my opinion the welfare of the Territory would bo materially promoted by conferring upon tho Terrl- i torial legislature additional powers, and 1 have to re-; new the recommendation in this respect, embodied in my last report, that tho Territorial legislature should be I given enlarged powers so as to adequately meet the growing needs of the Territory' consequent upon an in crease in population, the development of its natural re sources. and its industrial and commercial expansion. This need of more extended power for the legislature will beebme more and more Insistent until such time as the Territory is ready for statehood, and the sooner it is granted the greater will be the benefits accruing to the people." I THEY KNOW. WIckersham papers are still asking "what Is full Ter ritorial form of government?" Of, course they know. They know that President Wilson, farmer President Taft and others -who understood the proper use of English, who are lawyers and conversant with American history and American government, have made no mlBtake In us ing the term. They know that "full Territorial form of government" means complete local self-government such as other Territories have enjoyed, and, in nearly all cases where government concerns the people, as com plete as that which obtains In the separate States. They know that practically the only difference between "full Territorial form of government" and State government Is that the Territories cannot participate In National af fairs or grant title to tide and granted lands. The fre-' quency with which they ask the question only Indicate* how hard pressed they are to say something. They arc fooling nobody. NEW CABLE NEEDED. The recommendation of Gov. Strong in hts annual report that a new cable should bo laid between Alaska and Pugot Sound will meet with hearty approval of the people of Alaska. Comment on this recommendation 1? particularly pertinent at the present time, because the cable Is out of commission again for the sixth time with in a year. Alaska needs a new cable not only on account of the Inefficiency of tho present one, but the growing de mands of business require two wires between Alaska and Seattle. Let us hope that Got. Strong's recommend ations may bo carried out Those who are opposing a "full Territorial form of government" for Alaska are the same Wlckerahamltes who less than a year ago were telling the people that wo nqw have "full Territorial form of government" and the best form of government that any of tho Territories over had. The act Is they are now striving to retain the pres ent form of government rather than to secure Statehood. They are against self-government In Alaska. AMERICANS MUST LEARN TO SAVE (Seattle Tlmos) It is significant that the banks of Seattle hold lm : mensely larger deposits of the people's money than ever before. The financial statement of Tho Times has shown that deposits November 10 reached the unprecedented to tal of 186,727.690. The h'ghest previous total was that of September 2, when the banks held $82,875,205. In an Interval of six i ty-nine days the Increase was $3,S52,3S5. Admittedly this is a start In tho right direction. But it would be wldo of the mark to say that tho depositors of Seattle have done all they ought to do. The total ought to increase more and more: the lists of depositors ought to grow until they Include every salaried individ ual and wage-earner In the city. It Is not worth while to preach on the necessity for saving, or its value to the individual and to the nation. But it is not amiss to say, In Ylew of the published fi gures. that tho prnctlco of thrift In every one of the thousands of homes in Seattle would do wonders toward establishing this city on on impregnable basis. While the surplus of the American people, as proved | by tho savings, has reached $7,312, 291,113, we have not accomplished a great deal In that direction. Europe has done better. We are actually a nation of spendthrifts. , A writer on this subject has shown that among tho four industrial countries of the Western World?America, Great Britain. Germany and France?tho last named has the lowest scale of wages, and the first the highest; but France has the highest percentage of savings bank do- \ positors, and America has by far the lowest. Stated otherwise, the American wage scalo is often , not far from three times that of France, while the per centage of savings bank depositors in France is three times as great as In America. It is suggested, even, that extravagance grows and thrift decreases with the increas ing wage scale. The Bankers Magazlno is authority for the statement that every year In the United Statos a sum . larger than the national debt is wasted, largely by people who cannot afford it. n Here is the point for the people of Seattle. They have ! before them a season of plenty. It may last a year. It may last ten years. They can put money in the bank, if they practice thrift and economy. They must get tho , habit of saving?for it is a habit and a mighty good habit . When the lean years come, later on, those who have saved will be ready for a siege. Those who have persisted . In spending all their money will suffer. Anyone who has a bank account ought to add to it; anyone who has not a bank account ought to start one?right now. If thrift should gain a foothold throughout Seattle, > the tremendous total of the people's money now in tho banks could easily be doubled. Instead of being $86, 700,000, it might as well be $173,400,000, with every ( thrifty wage-earner claiming a nlco little slice of it for a rainy day. VILLA'S SURRENDER. (New York World.) There was a time when General Villa, who concluded terms of peace with the do facto Government of Mexico recently, might easily have been hailed as the liberator of h!s country. He commanded a powerful army that fought valiantly. Ho exhibited many surprising gifts of generalship. For a season he disavowed personal am bition. In spite of his earlier career of lawlessness. If hd had remained true to the Constitutionalist cause he would have gained a measure of the fame of a Bolivar or a Juarez. Partly by reason of his own lack of discipline, partly as a result of Jealousy of General Carrnnza, and partly, no doubt. In response to the Influence of certain foreign Interests, General Villa rebelled against his own cause In the very hour of Its triumph. By his attack upon the Provisional Government In an attempt to promote his own fortunes or to revenge himself upon thoso who had slighted him, he added Immeasurably to the miseries of Mexico and gave himself a name that will remain Infamous. WHY NOT? (Douglas Island News.) Delegate James Whckersham has Introduced In Con gress a bill providing for a full Territorial form of gov ernment for Alaska. Wo have not heard that the Dele gate has in any manner abandoned his plan for statehood for Alaska. This brings to us the question that has long been In our mind?while the press lias argued tho matter bitterly?Why Is It not possible for Alaskans to battle : for both a full Territorial government now and statehood 1 when we can get It? The Colonel can come nearer starting everybody to guessing at once than anybody wo know of.?(New York Sun.) It looks as if the really lucky members of tho Ford pcaco expedition were those who never joined It.?(Chi cago Herald..) I LADIES!

ATTACK ON OLSON WAS UNWARRANTED FRIENDS ALLEGE Friends of Byron Olson yesterday and today hotly resented what they termed an "unjust, unwarranted and scurrilous attack" on him, in an arti cle appearing in the morning paper 9un'day, which was signed by one Samuel Deschamps. The article went on to point out the evils of the employment agency, a brief announcement that Mr. Olson was to open an agency of this chac acter in Juneau, for mino labor, hav ing been made in The Empire of Jan uary 7. . "The article was libelous, malicious, md did Mr. Olson a great injustice," >ne of his friends Bald today, "but it certainly can be construed only as a joost for Mr. Olson. The man who signed it jumped to his conclusions, is did the nowspapcr that published the article." ? v Mr. Olson needs no defense. His record In Alaska is the best possible. He is an earnest, sober and Indus- I trious worker, in whom his friends ind employers reposo the highest con fidence. There is nothing of the "em- '< ployment shark" in his make-up, nelth sr is be a "tool" as the clap-trap ut terances of Mr. Deschamps would tiavo people believe. DeschampB* name is not in the Ju neau directories. He Is not employ- 1 sd by any of the mines in this sec tion, according to the payrolls. His ; last public appearance was during the ! last legislative session, when ho ap- ' peared before the committee which , held a public hearing on the "hospit al doctors" bill.
