DRUGISTS IKAOWAY DAWSON NOME ALL PRECEDENTS ARE NOW BEING IGNORED Present United States Senators Have a Rad ically Different Idea Than Had the G-reat Statesmen of the Past The Seattle Post-Iotelligencer, the constant and consistent champion of political advancement for Alaska in its issue of the 3d has the following to say anent the Illogical stand takou by the majority of the sub-committee of the senate's committee on territories: "It would seem by the reports from Washington that the people of Alaska are not to be given the right of local self>government to which they are enti tled at the present session of congress The sub-committee of the senate hav ing the matter in charge has decided that no territorial government will be organized 'on account of -se vast dis tances in the territory, the sparseness of the population, and for other rea sons.' "Our present American statesmen have a radically different idea on this subject than had the statesmen of the past. When Virginia ceded to the United States the North w"*l territory, including within its bordew the whole area of the present states of Ohio, Illi nois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan and the eastern half of Minnesota, the con tinental congress proceeded to form a territorial government for this vast area, on the basis of local self- govern ment. The ordinance of 1787 provided that as soon as there were 5000 free male inhabitants in the territory, of full age, there should be established a local legislature, with full power to pass all needful laws. "Whoa Ohio was cut oft. and the re maining portion of the Northwest terri tory organised as the IndiSM lerritorv in 1800, the people were granted a local legislature, merely with the proviso that until there were 5000 male Inhab itants of full age in the territory the legislative assembly should not consist of more than nine representatives, to be apportioned among the counties on the basis of population. Indiana, then inoluding a'so Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and part of Minnesota, was a country of vast distances, was sparsely settled, and communication between its various parts was vastly more difficult than it is between the settled parts -of Alaska today. "At the first session of the Twelfth congress, in 1812, the territory of Mis souri was organized. Included in its limits was ev ry portion of the terri-j tory acquired by the Louisiana pur-j chase except the state of Louisiana, which was admitted into the Union at the same time When the territory of Missouri was thus orgadized it included within its limits all of Arkansas, Mis souri, Kansas, Iowa, Oklahoma, Indian territory, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Utah, Colo rado and parts of Montana and Minne sota. There were a few 'vast dis tances' in Missouri at the time, and the scanty population in the whole great empire was very much less than is to be found in single districts of Alaska today. Means of communication were infinitely poorer than now exist to all parts of Alaska at present; yet the act establishing a territorial government for Missouri provided for a legislative assembly, elected by the people, with 'power to make laws in all cases, both civil and criminal, for the good govern ment of the people of said territory, not repugnant to or inconsistent with the constitution of the United States.' The people were also given the privil ege of electing a delegate to represent them in the congress of the United States. "There are more white male inhabi tants of full age residing in the district of Alaska today than there were in any one of the states formed out of the ter ritory ceded by Virginia, or out of that purchased from Prance, at the time those states were severally admitted into the Union. Yet a sub-committee of the senate, in its infinite wisdom, has decided that the people of Alaska are not yet qualified for such slight measure of self-government as is in volved in making laws for their own local government and in selecting one of their number to present their needs lo congress."
