HIS December a bill will be presented
THIS
JL sented to Congress to make
Alaska a elate It may surprise many
people that Alaska baa aspirations In
ths direction but for some time this
luntry haa boon dissatisfied with ita
farm of government and felt it did
I
iv r have proper understanding at I
aahJngton If It suooeeda and an
other star Is added to the flag the
I nited States will create a state out
if a territory that has 86000 inhab
i nta with a trade with the United
stated amounting to over a thousand
collars per annum for every white
r n woman and child
Most people thJnk of Alaska ma a
cold repellant country with some
r > h gold mines which are orked
under great difficulty As a matter
< < f fact the country covers such a
wade area it has many climates but
its general aspect may be likened to
t at uf Norway or Sweden On the
oat there are places where the
tt rrmometer never goes below zero
In winter There are other sections I
Lt the interior on the northwest
c nst where it is extremely cold in
v ntt r but the summers throughout I
c < delightful Though this season

hours a day that vegetation grows
rapidly
Those who associate this country
merely with its gOld fields know little
of its resources It exported last year
nearly 600000 worth offish salmon
and other kinds dried canned and
salted Its has furs gypsum marble
tin and supplies the world far more
than Hawaii or Porto Rico All this
and its resources have not begun to
be developed Persons who do nt
know Alaska think of it as a faraway
country at which vessels touch occa
sionally In reality both American
and Canadian boats carry on regular
service with the country There art
over thirty American vessels that call
at Alaskan ports and foreign vessels
frequently stop there Last year
nearly gOO vessels cleared from Alas
kan coast towns
But there Is a vast Interior that
needs readier means of communlca
tion with the coast than these vessels I
Alaska needs two things Imperative 1
ly to further comiueieial interests
and to make the country better
known These are railroads good j
wagon roads and trail With these
dexelopment will increase with leaps i
and bounds At present there are

I besides tht Whftr Pass Yukon
which tuns from SKaftua into the in
terior and Is financed by Canadian
and English capital There are short
treterM that have been constructed
to facilitate shipments from mines
but the need of Complete railroad S5 S
tems Is j early beeomins more appar
ent Even governor that has been
lire Alaska has said that proper trans
portation facilities were one of the
countr s problems this in spite of
the fact that there are tremendous
and wonderful waterways
The Yukon which Js extensively
used for transportation is over 3500
miles long and navigable for 2000
miles This immense river is seventy I
miles wide at its shallow mouth Other
streams are navigable for from 300
to 1000 miles but these do not fill
the need of railroads and trails There
are few good wagon roads a marked
contrast to the Canadian side where
roads were built as soon as paying
gold was discovered In any place
Alaska is calling loud for those things
for her people and protesting that I
I People with money to bark them ti t
what the average < iti < stii dots not
j Those that know say then is ISOuu
miles of dredging ground in Alaska
I and great field 1 of anthracite and
other coal I As for agriculture
I though the sea iii fur crops is short
the mall houi of sunraine each day
I make fair returns Hay potato
I Melons squash tomatoes sweet corn
I are raised whil cranberries straw
berries and other fruit grow wild in
certain parts where the climate is
modified by the Japan current
This wonderful region large as all
the United States east of the Missis
sippi and north of Alabama Georgia
and North Carolina has vast
stretches of cedar pine and other
forests all waiting for the ax There
are elk deer moose and caribou and
beautiful White mountain goats on
the majestic mountains The Indians
have long held Mount McKinley sa
cred and call it the Home of the
Great Chief But this is only one
of a group like Mount St Elias and
Mount Fairweather all averaging
over 16000 feet The white goats I
can be seen on these mountains in I
bands of a dozen or more and thou
sands of caribou are in the valleys
It is to be hoped they will remain
undisturbed When this country was
purchased Secretary Seward was
laughed at and derided but now peo
ple are gradually comprehending that
the Seal islands alone have turned
Into our revenue much more than I
the sum paid to Russia far the entire
country
At the time of this purchase the
immense valley of the Yukon which
empties thirteen times more water
than the Mississippi and is in some
places twenty miles wide was inhab
Itefl by Men of the Yukon tribe of
Indians Today it is peopled by brave I I
pioneers who are building towns and
settling valleys They have started I
many cities large and small as the I
direct result of the working of mines
The Alaskan waterways are used ex
tensively in summer for passenger
and freight service and provisions
are shipped not alone for the short
summer but for the longer winter
also It is probable these waterways
will never be abandoned but rail
roads will help in reaching places not I
touched by the big rivers and their
tributaries I
Dawson proudly I calls itself the
metropolis of the Upper Yukon and
it Is a stirring town but its popula
tion has decreased since the sur
rounding mines have been worked
out Fairbanks is the large town of
the middle valley It is surprisingly
cosmopolitan has nearly 4000 peo
ple three banks hotels a threestory
office building three churches two
newspapers hospital telephones
electric lights and many comforts
Nome is larger than either of those
towns Its population is about 10
000 It is on Bering sea and more
easy of access and from 1900 has
held its own as a sort of capital of
the coast of Alaska The entire pop
ulation of Alaska is composed of
whites natives Chinese Japanese
and a tow negroes The whites pre
dominate and rule and are scattered
along the coast and interior What
an immense district lies ready for oc
cupancy can be realized when it is
known it is 2000 miles from Skaguay
on the coast to the Yukon gold field
and that it takes twelve days to go
from Seattle to Nome by steamer
The Yukon country Is reached by
boat from Seattle to Skaguay thence
by rail where was once a wagon road
and over passes where many a pros
pector in the early days lost his pack
and horses From the railroad sta
tion at White Horse a stedmer con
nects with the YUkon river and a
good share of this Journey is along a
coast and through a country whose
scenic gradeur Is incomparable in a
combination of ocean snowclad
mountains and stupendous walled
Channels
The real truth Is that Alaska is an
empire and it wants a larger popula
tion If it were boomed half as
much as Alberta Saskatchewan and
other Canadian provinces it would
have one The farmers from the
states who are going to those districts
never think of going to Alaska part
ly because its resources have not
been called to their attention Every
American citizen should know the
truth about Alaska and stop thinking
of It as a barren inaccessible
coun
try It is true It is our last frontier
that the summers are short and the
winters are cold but it Is a coldness
that Is considered wonderful in its
healthgiving properties There is
one hot springs with a hotel built of
I
logs and a natatorium that cost = 250
000 Eleven million dollars worth of
gold was shipped out of Fairbanks In I
one year In spite of a strike and al
most as much was shipped out of
Nome The people of the states have
only a hint of the possibilities There
Is not the slightest doubt but the
country can support an immense pop
ulation and If It once becomes a
state it will be better known Its
faraway aspeot will sink into the
background and its Immensity be
come better understood As an in
stance of this last the island of Attu
which belongs to Alaska Is as far
from the coast as San Francisco Is
from Maine This makes as some
senators jokingly said San Francisco
the middle town of the United States
The real Alaska is a land of con
stant marvels contradictions and sur
prises It cost us not a fraction of
what the salmon fisheries alone are
worth and one mine has more than
I earned enough to compensate the
outlay It is a vast storehouse of un
developed products and it is getting
more and more Into communication i I
with the United States The first two 1i 1I I
successful wireless stations in the I
world were the St Michaels and Port
Safety stations Now there are wire
less stations at St Miclmele Tanana
Fairbanks Circle City Eagle Cordo

touch with the world and supply
1 stat i liaLl I v ants a laiload from

legitimate capital and it ants to
protect and entourage such capital
With capital and labor orking hand
in hand a decade Mill change the old
maxim e tard to northward
the course of empire take its way
It welcomes investment but will tight
monopoly It wants the people who
have gone to Alaska to work and try
to make livings to be the ones to say
much about its government and af
fairs Many levelheaded persons go
to other portions of our territory to
Porto Rico and the Philippines who
never think of going to Alaska Yet
it is nearer home and has many op
portunities Congress can do much
toward putting this country in its
right light It can open the door and
say Welcome to Alaska and It can I
truthfully add Alaska is the richest
asset of the United States Give
