I'rey. school Board. “Fear not; for behold, I bring you good tiding* of gnu) joy, winch shall he to all people.” “For unto you i* Ixjrn this day in the city of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.” Nineteen liundnd years ago this message was carried by the angels of tile Lord is the faithful shepherds in Judea. Turning to the story as told by Luke, we discover that it lias not lost anything by age. It is a* fresli as ever. The Christinas story 19 still the sweetest ever told. As long as there is a weary liiart in the world, so long will the Savior in Bethlehem he a welcome visitor. It was a message to the lowly. It is signiticent where the gospel began. Jesus was of Koval blood, but of lowly birth. He came to the lowliest on earth that he might lift them to the highest of heaven. He diil not come to the proud or arrogant, nor to the self-satisfied and self-righteous, hut to the lowly and needy. These know at leas, one thing, iliat they need help and throughout all Christendom thou sands and millions are serving Him to-day and tind help and joy and peace in llu> service, and the message of Bethlehem is made p-aj, to them; a message of peace and good-will. Through the long ages since the joyful tid.ng of "Pea e on Far h. Do.id \\ iil M, 1,” was proclaim) <1 by till all - Is li 1 Lori, m a. h»-- on a •*ele')>a cvi hrottghoi.i the whole nor wherever tht r.- has' b 11 one o: his followers, and it lias hr.mgh joy. peace anti liappi n ss 10 the individual, the home, t e s ate and the world. To-day is a happy one through oui our country. We are at peace with tiie world and there is great pro peri) v everv where. Ther are some individual cases of need and sorrow. In our hap piness let us not forget h m. The good tidings of great joy was for all people. None are too low or degraded but that the mes-age is for them and all should rejoice to-day, for “Unto.you is liorn a Savior which is Christ tho-Lord.” * « The Ketchikan Jom.VVl. says that Delegate Mark Smith of Ari zona, in his spiech in the Xu ionul house of representatives was com paring territorial government with statehood. Oi course he was, and we cannot see why any thinking person would want to indict such a state of conditions as exist in Ari zona under territorial government upon the jH-ople of Alaska. The laws that we have and the conditions that confront us are bad enough, hut the jam, le of Arizona are to-day worse off thun .he peo ple of Alaska. Here are some of the conditions that confront the people of Arizona according to Mr. Smith. Congre-ss has indicted on us a sys.em of courts inherently wrong. It regulates the numl>er of Judges which is inadequate and results often in delay and denial of justice. It reserves the right to annul any law our legislature may pa.-s, thus den‘.re>y:ng the faith of emr public acts. Ii rcM-r\es the right to des troy any good obligation we may e. I* l i.I too. 0/ a law pr....j.u.iu^ u* from expending our own money on j I be improvi men a. no mat er how urgent ov.r necessities. It has stifled indus ries by pro hibiting us from selling mining properties in foreign iiiarke's. hits laying on us an embargo not borne ■ by the statis. It lias exempted 400 miles of railroad from taxation ] and refuses to survey the enormous j land grant of said road, so that tax es on t lie land might be imposed by the territory. It lias withheld all school lands 1 and refuses control of same un it we become a state, and .Inn reft scs I statehood. It gives us no rej n - sentative in Congress, yet ini poses j taxes too burdensome to he borne. It has imposed every burden ot ! citizenship and withheld its bene fits by ih living us a voice in the I enactment of laws by which we ar. i Urund. It hasdeprned lu- tmn i it-r se leiiu n s of proper pos a itacii: is; j roeieo.ng upon lie un just and imprac ieable basis that j cvi ry post ottiee shou d he self sus ' taining. These are a few of .lie tilings i | that Ar.zona lias hail to contend; with for tile past 20 years and the dondi iim iliat the Ijeteliikan edi tor and a few others would like to ini| ose ii| on Alaska a. the | resen time, lint Alaska does not wan stteh a eondi Ion of affairs. t«i\’e us a r. | resen a ive in Coii J I i • • .up* * s lie or our o .n tir , land .aws, a re', .s.on .in j r. n A...ska i'ihIc and we believe tin* people of Alas a will lie he. or o.t and in i. lielti r com.li ion ban under terr - torial government.

Ice in the summer cos s more in Valdez than it does in most of the eastern cities. The Valdez gluc.er. is only four m l.s away and covers one Inin IreU square miles, and tlu re are o her glaciers n. ar, ve. it was so d.lhcul 10 get ice that i. cost from three .u five cents p * r pound las. summer.

The Attorney General o! jecletl some time ugo to the organ izui«n of the Alaska Militia, bj; h > lias now withdrawn his ohjeeiions a:.d ' militia companies can now lie >r ganized in the district. Air. Fred D. Kelsey of this place was appointed Adjutant Geinr.il three years ago by Governor Bra dy. and one or two companies were organized, but were dia handed when the Attorney General object ed to any organisation or to gov ernment aid. Now that this ob jection is withdrawn it is to lie l.oi ed that General Kelsey will take the matter in hand and or ganize the Alaska Militia. Why cannot Vaidez hu\e Coin] any A.?
