WOLLAND MERCHANT TAILOR JUNEAU, ALASKA (JSharick WATCHES, DIAMONDS, JEWELRY JUNEAU : ALASKA T aft Against Home Rule One can imagine all Alaska singing just now: "We will hang Bill Taft on a sour apple tree." It is none of our affair, really, and yet it is for the rea son that Alaska is only just over the backyard fence from Yukon and we have large numbers of American read ers on both sides of the fence. It is but a few days ago the News was asked to express itself on the question of home rule for Alaska. This was in company with Alaskan newspapers, mayors, boards of trade, chambers of commerce, and so forth. Mr. Wicker sham, the Alaskan delegate to cougresa, collected all these expressions of pubiic i opinion, which were practically unani- J mous, and laid them before President : Taft at Seattle. Just as if such representations had never been made the president started out by saying that a territorial govern ! ment for Alaska was inadvisable for the present. The disappointment is j that he didn't say who told him so, for , he himself has never seen any part of Alaska. Was it Hoggatt, the late i lamented, or was it the more sorely ex ecrated Brady, who endeavored to j spend the whole of the appropriation ; for Alaska oli his net Indians and not! a cent for; schools for white children, i We wonder. While Alaska has been struggling for j years for somo sort of autonomy, Taft turns its people down by suggesting that the best form of government is a ! I federal bureau at Washington. Thus, j for the term of Taft, the Alaskans may i give up all hopes. They are now in a 1 worse position than ever before. Ill the early days they were a political ap- i pendage of the state of Oregon. All ' the carpet-bag politicians of that state j out of a job were unloaded on Alaska, and many of them were sorry speci j mens of humanity to the hardy, honest pioneers of the north. Then Washiug- ! ton, California and other northwest | Pacific states got into a fight for the patronage of this new country. All of them were desirous of sending their j cast off statesmen into these wildf. j Then there was a change. Alaska really 1 offered opportunities, and the light for . its offices became all the more bitter. That is how it was, and practically how it is, except Alaska has uow an able aud energetic delegate in congress. And President Taft has the audacity I to propose that the best way of govern- J iug Alaska is by appointing a clerk to j a desk in the anteroom of the depart- j ment of the interior ? possible a cul- : tured colored man from Florida. We j offer our frieudly neighbors of Alaska 1 a sympathetic the most distinguished, i as they say in France. ? Dawson News.

Keep it there. That would be the safest position.? Kansas City Jour nal. Clarence L. Hannum, grand chief of the Arctic Brotherhood, upon his ar rival at Seattle from Nome, very wisely ? stated that the matter of the initiation of President Taft by the Seattle crowd would be adjudicated by the grand camp, and stated that the attitude of the president on the question of home rule for Alaska will have nothing to do with the matter. However, Mr. Han num expressed regret at the position taken by the president on this subject, as he personally favors home rule. Barney McGee, known throughout the North as the perpetrator of prac tical jokes, got paid in his own coin at Seattle recently. His friends inserted au ad in the P.*I. calling for a middle aged woman to take charge of a coun try hotel, and directed applicants to call at room 328, Arlington hotel. This waa the room assigned to the White horse tuau. After two or three dozen women of the middle-age variety had viaited hia apartments, McGee got wise to the plot and fled. Acting Commi9sio ner H. M. Smith, of the department of commerce and labor, has expressed au opinion that the use of herring for purposes other than food (fertilizer; would doubtless be regarded as wanton destruction, and, under section 8 of the Alaska salmon law, such use of her ring could properly be prohibited. He also says that the agents of the bureau now in Alaska have been instructed to look into this matter very carefully with the object in view of determining the proper course to pursue.
