J. P. Whitney Goins; South
to Visit Smelters
Mr, and Mra. J, P. Whitney arrived
from Whlti-horso, last night, and are
at U> Fifth Aventfs.
Mr. Whitney gays that another ore
shipment Is being sacked at the Copper
King ur<1 that shipments will follow
.xmtinuously until about April, wnen
the snow will be o.T and maka the haul
ing too expeamve. Mr. Whl'"ney hopes
to ship 300 tons during the winter,
Mr. Whitney Is on his way out to visit
the ameiters of Puget soand hi the in
terest of his mining interests. He says
that there ia yet no eertalnty about I
there being profit in his shipments, but
if the rock is aa good aa reported by the
Dominion assayer at Whltettorae, and
proportionate returns are reoelved from
?he smelter, the mine will be immed- i
lately worked upon a large scale.
Capt. John Irving Is expected on the
Amur. Awaiting his arrival at Whlta
horse are 100 tons of ore from the Arc
tic Chief. If the values are in Irving
Jc Clarke's ore, there is enough of it to
keep the railroad busy with back loads
for very many years to come.
The Copper King lode dips to the
west from one of the parallel outcrops
A tunnel has been run into the hill
eaaterly and has eroaa-cut this lode and
has passed it about 100 feet to catch the
lode of the outcrop. Thla tunnel will
be driven home but meanwhile ralsiot
will oontinue on the first lode? from
where tha shipments are being made.

ALL PRECEDENTS ARE NOW
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
"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
"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
"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
