The a dwell City, Alaska, April Sth, 1902. ' At :i meeting of the city council of Tread- ' veil City, Alaska, the following resolutions f vere unanimously passed: _ I Whkkkas, There is tin agitation on foot to ; lecure from Congress the enactment of a hill I riving to Alusku a territorial form of gov- | srnment; And Whereas, It is believed that such 1 legislation would be unwise for the reason! hat the population of Alaska is not suftlc- ' ontly settled, nor its industries sufficiently leveloped, to properly support a local gov 'rnment, and for the further reason that un- j lor the present Code, with a few needed j Amendments, we have Jill the law and govern- >. nent needed, and that a territorial form of government would, at this time, be a serious burden to the people of the District, without my compensating advantages, therefore, He it Resolved by the Hoard of Couucilmen af Treadwell City, Alaska: 1st. That we heartily endorse the bill in troduced by Congressman Cushman asking For a delegate to Congress to represent Alas ka. 2nd. That we are opposed to the enactment j >f any law, at this time, giving Alaska a ter- | ritorinl form of government, as premature ; and inimical to the best interests of the Dis- j trict. 3rd.
