GEORGESON 4 4 A LASKA as a whole is elated with the administration /\ policy,” said C. C. Georgeson, the special agent in ■* * charge of the Alaska investigations of the department of argicultnre, and who returned to the city today after spend ing a few days at his ranch near Grandview. “No other ad ministration has ever done so well hy Alaska as the present one. The people of Alaska feel grateful for the efforts of the administration and for the development which is sure to come. That development will affect the whole of Alaska—at least all of it which is south of the Arctic circle. “The certainty of a railroad being built assures us that a great development will come in the wake of it. What develop ment? Well, it will be along every line. Tin* low-grade min* ing properties which it does not pay to work now can be work ed effectively if the cost of transportation for theore can be de creased. Homesteads will be taken up, as they can be worked at a profit if the produce can be easily shipped to market. The merchants will be able to get goods more cheaply which means that more people will be able to make a living in Alaska. The whole country will he built up more rapidly—that is always the result of having any railway. With that promise before us Alaska is getting along better than ever; the sections around Juneau are having a greater development. “The agriculture outlook is more promising than ever be fore. A great number of homesteads are being taken up. The agricultural experiment stations have demonstrated that many kinds of grain, root crops and forage crops can be grown with success. The* agricultural development of Alaska will go for ward as fast as circumstances permit. Practically all of our agricultural crops can be consumed at home, as at present we import large quantities of vegetables, especially potatoes. These, berries and other food stuffs could just as well be raised in Alaska. At present we are shipping out vegetables in great quantity from Haines to Seattle—they find a ready market, and the yare better in quality than can be produced on the Sound. We have been especially successful in growing grains, seed potatoes ami turnip seed- There is no reason why a man with ordinary common-sense should not take up a homestead in Alaska and make a good living from it. In the future we will ship more of our agricultural products, though for a long time we will consume most of our food products at home.”— North Yakima, Wash., Republic. -: o: — MORE RUINS TO BE EXPLORED BY COL. THEODORE ROOSEVELT COL. ROOSEVELT has published his “South American Wilderness Exploration.” We have not seen the the book, but the reviews praise it as most valuable and interesting which we can well believe is true, for on those lines the Colonel is always interesting. We thought when he had covered central Africa and the wildest regions of South America, that if lie essayed to make another trip, he would have to climb the Himalayas to find an other region that had not been much explored, but as it looks now he may be able to find what he wants in central Europe. A great many people have described that region as it was six months ago, but it is liable to be entirely new region a year hence. The rivers and mountains may maintain their old places, but every thing else is liable to be changed. Where there were lovely fields there will be the wrecks of war; the beautiful cities will be ruins, the works of art and the marvelous architecture will be but as the forest when the frost denude the trees and drive the song birds into winter quarters. The toil of a thousand years lost, the genius of a thousand years scorched and seared. The vision of the groat Charlemagne of what Europe was to be is nearly realized. Now possibly the man of New Zealand is already alive and waiting for a ship to carry him to where he can sit on a broken arch of London bridge and make real Malcaulay’s vision which his indigestion conjured up. And it is a montrous sin and shame. §w ,--- — While some of the middle states are likely experiencing wintry blasts we of Alaska are having a spell of very mild weather. It is none too early to do your Christmas shopping. Don’t put off until the last minute the purchase of that gift which will mean so much to the friend remembered. Getting out a newspaper in Paris at the present time seems to be a somewhat difficult matter, as the following from Gil Bias would indicate: ‘‘Hardly a member of the staff or a printer re mains. We have other duties now—on the frontier. This is our last edition till the war is ended.” By patronizing tonight’s entertainment you will not only have ah opportunity o'f enjoying an exceptionally good pro gram but also contribute your mite to a most worthy cause, that of liquidating the indebtedness on tin* base ball park. President Wilson still has his watchful eye on us, as was evidenced in the recommendation made in his message to Con gress for a thorough survey and the proper lighting of the coast of Alaska, in order to better protect life and property. Several days have passed and no new railroad rumor sprung. Possibly the censors at Washington have taken a hand in the game and if this be true we will have to be patient and await the report of the Alaska Engineering Commission and President Wilson’s final decision as to the routes of tin* government trunk lines to be built in Alaska PROFESSIONAL DIRECTORY DR.
