Whom Shall We Nominate, On the 4th of March, 1885, the Ko- publican party will have been tu power twenty-four consecutive, years. No other political organization ever enjoyed unbroken possession of the gouernmeiit so long. The Demo cratic tenure, winch, beginning iu 182.), ended in 1861, was interrupted by thoeloetiou of Harrison, In 1810, and of Taylor, In 1848. The feeling, therefore, that the time has come for an overhauling of tho accounts, to which a change of parties is iudis pcneable, is as natural as it .is gener al, aud unless some unforeseen disas ter befall the Democratic party be tween tills aud thePrcsidontlal elec tion, tho next President will bo a Democrat A prize so great aud a prospoct so promising raises up on the one band the very gravest responsibilities, and on the other band tho very greatest dangers. Thosowho, largo or small, shall have In any wlso the shaping of the event cannot bo too careful how they act or what they Bay. In particular should Democrats guard themselves against hot personal ref erences. Among tho dangers, that of con filet in it aspirations is by no means the least to bo anticipated and feared. Personally it Is a mutter of little moment who is nominated for President so he be capable, reliable and honest At this moment three possible nominees are mora ooneplou ous. They are McDonald, Cleveland, and Hoadlcy. . Any one of these would make a good President. Our own choice is McDonald, for this reason : i First, that he Is an honest man. Second, that be is au able man. Third, that be ia an exporiouced man. Fourth, that he is an available man Fifth, that his services to the coun try and the party give him a claim to tho respect and gratitude of both. At the propor time and with prop er disposition we -shall give exam pies and reasons for this preference, drawn from the life and character of our excellent Old Saddle-bags, a man who has commended himself by his good works to the love of the people, and by his great wisdom to the confi dence of the business community; a man with a big brain and a big heart and a calm temper; a just a trained and a friendly man. ' But whilst preferring McDonald, or rath er believing him to be the strongest and safest candidate the party can put in the field under all the circum stances, we shall have nothing to say against other Democratic, aspirants. Tho issue is too momentous to be fribbled away over individual likos and dislikes. As for ourselves, we can truly say we carry with us into this UI8CU881011 no private iccliug.auu still less no private interest. -. Per sonally, any one of a dozeu eminent Democrats would suit us. If there Is a single possible nominee who would not, we fail to recall hU name, We hopo that Democrats every where will consider the question in a fair and kindly spirit, Becking as we shall, not only tho best man to win with, but the best man to take the helm of State after we have won Courier-Journal.

S. navy, was for some timo stationed at Sitka, Alaska, with the United States ship Jamestown, and afterward visi ted every part of the coast in com mand of the Wovbusott, was in San Francisco lately, where bo was inter viewed with regard to tho produc tions aud possibilities of our great northern territory. The fisheries of Alaska he thought were valuable, and destined to play au important part in tho commerce and industries of the Pacific coast. Salmon of fine quality are found in great abundance in every creek and river of the territory. It 1b probable that several canneries will be in op eration this year.' The waters iu plucca are teeming with halibut of the finest quality, aud already the herring fishery has become of great value, works having been estab lished during the past year for tho manufacture of herring oil. Great numbers of whales frequent tho In ner channels and bays, aud arrange ments are now beins; made to prose cute whaling extensively. This can easily be done, aud at less, expciise than iu the open seas, as small and inexpensive vessels can bo used on the calm bays and channels of Sodtb custcrn Alaska. To the northward and westward of Sitka are banks of considerable extent, where 'very fine eodltsb are found iu great abundance. The vast timber products of Alas ka promiso to be of gi-cut valuo iu the near future. Ou all the islands and the mainland of southern Alas ka are heavy forests of fir, spruce, al der and cedar. Up to tho present time but very little timber has been cut in Alaska only that needed for the consumption of the territory. Out, with the inroads now being made on . the timber of California, Oregon aud Washington territory, Alaska must soon become a source of supply, aud from the' accessibility of the timber along tho extensive shore line it can be exported very cheaply. On many of tlio islands are found large quantities of hard yellow cedar, superior to any found elsewhere on this coast The wood is quite hard easily worked, takes a high polish, is quite aromatic, and is said to possess the power of resisting the attacks of the toredo, which, if true, would make it valuable iu ship - building. Commander Glass was told when in commailH in Alaska, that the tim bers, of a Hussian vessel constructed of this wood, after being somo forty years under water, were fouud per fectly sound, and that they had not been touched by the toredo. Of the mining prospects of Alaska: Commandertilass was quite hopeful. The placer mines, of the Harris dis trict are already valuable. During "1882 over $200,000 In gold dust were. sent away, only the crudest machin ery being used by the miners. Quartz mining is equally promising in the same district, several extensive ledges havlug been discovered and traced ono or two milcs,aud although only surface work has beon dono iu prospecting, a great deal of fine quartz has been shown. The want of laws and courts to adjudicate dis puted claims has prevented an ex tensive work being done up to the present timo. With the organiza tion of the territory, capital would bo attracted there and mines bf val ue be developed. Coal has been re ported in several portions of the ter ritory, but as yet nothing of valuo has been discovered. Coppor is re ported in considerable quantities, about the Copper river, to the west ward of Mount St Ellas. ' . At prescut nothing of importance is dono in agaiculture, only; a few small gardens beiug planted about the principal settlements to supply vegetables. The summer is too short for any of our cereal crops, but pota toes of very fine quality could bo grown in Alaska, and in all the val leys lino grasses grow luxuriantly, and portions of Alaska will hereafter bo valuable for grazing purposes.; . Southeast Alaska produces furs of fine value, and quite a largo trado is carried on. Land and sea otter, lynx, several variotles of fox the most valuable being tho silver gvay fox bear and doer skins are exported in considerable quantities, ' t,!. Contrary to popular opinion, Com mander Glass regards southern Alas ka, as an exceedingly healthy coun try with a climate not at all severe. The lowest temperature that ho saw recorded in Alaska during tho two winters he was thore was four de grees below zero (Fahrenheit) This was only ou one day of January, of 1882, in- latitudo 59 degrees north. Tho highest temperature recorded on board ship during the summer was 80 degrees, this was at Sitka, about the middle of August Tho moau temperature for December, January and February, as found by hourly observations taken ou Doard the Jamestown, was about 32 degrees (Fahrenheit). A great deal of rain and snow fall In southeastern Alaska, and thore are few. porfectly clear days durinic tho year in what is known a southeast Alaska, ' say from Mount St. Ellas to tho soulhorn boundary at Portland canal. The limate of western and northern Alaska differs very greatly, and 0very low moan temperature is expe rienced In that portion of the territo ry. This difference Is largoly due to ENTUCKIAN. or Kuro Slwo, a portion of which is deflected by the Aleutian Islands, and impinges on the cosst In about t ho latitude of Sitka.

Tho glossograph is a recent inven tion by which speech is automatical ly reproduced as soon 'as it is uttered. A small apparatus is placed In the mouth of the speaker in contact with tho roof of his mouth, his tongue and lips and on being con nected with an electro-magnetic reg istering apparatus, the sounds are committed to paper. It is con structed iu such a manner as not to cause any inconvenience to the speak er; ueithor is it necessary that the voice should be raised, as it reprodu ces a whisper as exactly as a shout; the only condition is a distinct and correct articulation. According to the inventor's calculation, it will be possiblo to write four or five times as fust by means of the glossograph as has hitherto been possible even by tho quickest writer. An obstacle, however, intervenes because it will be difficult to decipher tho charac ters, as it will spell phonetically, but tho Pall Mall Gazette suggests that this can be obviated by a second au tomatic apparatus.
