PERILS AND THE PLEASURES ARE TOLD OF TRAIL By Dr. Will H. Chase (Historian, Pioneers of Alaska) Thirty-seven years have come and gone since tiie memorable day when the old S. S. Portland arrived at San Francisco with a big shipment of virgin gold and reports of a rich placer strike on Bonanza Creek, a tributary of the Klondyke River. A great majority of those argo nauts who responded to the chance to obtain wealth and helped to swell the vast horde that went to make the greatest “gold stampede” in history, have passed on.

It behooves the citizens of the Second Division to take particular note of what legislation can be brought before their representatives in Juneau, to bring about improved conditions and thp pass age of laws affecting their lives and business in this coun try which require them. This Division needs many things... There are many con ditions which even in Nome alone which should be brought before the attention of the Legislature... Matters of legisla tion bear a serious, well-thought out, formulated program. Without a program of legislation to guide your representa tives, they have but a few things known personally and which the general public knows nothing of, to bring before their constituents for passage. With a program to follow for the betterment of the Second Division, they will have some thing concrete upon which to base their, conduct... The pro gram, in addition has the support of the people who elect them, and they know for a certainty that such legislation is going to be in accord with what the electors want. There is a time and place for everything... Now is the time to formulate that legislative program and present it to the senators and representatives you are sending to Juneau, the Capitol. In the past years, the N. W. Alaska Chamber of Com merce has universally taken the initiative in framing such a program, usually presenting it to the public before-hand and gaining their support, before meeting with the legisla tors and advising them of their suggestions... Such a prac tice has resulted in this Division, with a satisfying degree of success.Time should be taken now to insure the success of a legislative program... The legislators will soon be leav ing for the capitol. Meet and contact them now before they go, and they will be in a position, better to serve you...
