Anderson of Unga objects to a statement by a speaker at the Cale meeting in Valdez in June, quotecUin the Prospector, alleging that nil D. H. Jarvis ever did for Alaska was to lobby through congress a bill to use the tax on canned salmon for the encourage ment of hatcheries, thereby taking away a large revenue from the Alaska school and road fund. Mr. Andereon or Miss Anderson, as the case may be who ovidently has something to learn about law, asks: ,4Will>you "kindly explain to m? how that cau bo. Alaska has three classes of school. The native schools under the supervision of the Bureau of Ed ucation, supported by a direct appro priation from congress. The Terri torial school under the supervision of the Governor of Alaska and aapported by an appropriation from congresa. The schools within the limits of in corporated cities and supported by one half the revenue collected from liquor licenses? i believe it is true that the appropriations for the school funds these last two years have been larger than at any time before. "It seems to me that Alaska woald ( stand a far better chance ot obtaining recognition at the hands of congress if the newspapers would stop their petty Quibbling, cat out personal spite, and devote the columns of their papers to the discussion of the principles of the issues which effect the country at large." The Prospector wishes to be fair with A. E. Anderson because A. E. may stand for Amelia Elizabeth, or some thing like that, and the owner of the name may wear a xMerry Widow hat and with a mouthfull of hair pins dreae before a glass in the morniug. It will therefore refer A. E. to the act of con grest of January 27, 1905, which reads as follows: "That ail moneys derived from and collected (or liquor licenses, occupa tion or trade liconsea outside of incor porated towns in the district of Alaska shall be deposited in the Treasury De partment of the United States, there to remaiu as a separate and distinct fand, to be known as the "Alaska fund," and to be wholly devoted to ths purposes hereinafter stated in the district of Alaska. Oue-fourth of said fund, or so much thereof as may be necessary, shall be devoted to the establishment and maintenance of publio schools in said district; five per centum of said fund shall be devoted to the care and* maintenance of insane persons in said distriot, or so much of said per centum as may be needed; and all the residue of said fund shall be devoted to the construction aud maintenance of wagon roads, bridges and trails in said dip" triot." f . Under this provision half the tax of 4 cents a case upon canned salmon went into the school and road fund of tho territory. The bill lobbied through by Capt. Jarvis transfers this 4 oenfc tax to a fund to be used for the en couragement of private salmon hatch eries. It gives the packers a rebate of 40 cents for eaoh thousand red salmon fry liberated from their alleged hatch eries. No provision is made for official supervision of this hatchery industry aud reports of its output are left to the packers themselves. The grand jury of the January 11)08 term of the district court of the Third division reported that the salmon packers are apparently using the law to swear themselves oat of the salmon tax altogether. It found that the Alaska Packer's Association in 1907 paid a balance of 32 oents into the office of the clerk of the court as the amount due at 4 oents a case after deducting the rebates claimed for the liberation of fry from its purported hatcheries, offering no proof of the same. Even though the packers honestly re port on the work of their.hatcherles those industries benefit nobody but themselves, and the diversion of the salmon tax is a bounty to the packers at the expense of the Alaska school and road fund. x ' This, of course, has nothing to do with "the principles of the issue whioh effect the country at large."
