A recent Washington city dispatch to the Seattle Post-Intel ligencer says: "The question of granting to Alaska some sort of representation in congress, either through a delegate or a resident commissioner, is still muddled, and there is at present little or no prospect that a solution of the problem will be found at this session of congress. " 'If the senate should vote to author ize the appointment of an Alaska dele gate by the president, and if the house of representatives should do the unlike ly thing and pass the bill, there is no possibility that the delegate would ever be allowed to take his seat in the house,' .says Representative Lacev, chairman of the house committee on public lands. Mr. Lacey wants to see Alaska's interests well looked after, but he balks at the appointive delegate proposition. " 'It is absurd to talk about appoint ing a delegate by executive authority,' continued Mr. Lacey, in talktng about the matter to the correspondent of the Post-Iutelligencer. 'It would violate the most sacred principle of our system of popular representation. The house of representatives represents the peo ple ? all of ? he people? through the di rect expression of all of the people at the polls, '"he house would never seat a delegate from any territory appointed by the president of the United States.1 " 'The talk about appointing a dele gate is absurd. Discuss as much as you please the practicability of elect ing a delegate by popular vote in Alas ka: if we ever have a delegate from the territory, he will have to be elected; he cannot be appointed.' "Senator Nelson, who was a member of the sub-committee of the senate com mittee on territories, who visited Alas ka last summer, has introduced a bill providing for the election of a delegate in the regular way. His colleagues on the committee, with the exception of Mr. Patterson, a democrat, 'afe opposed to the measure." Cold weather coal, while it lasts, $10.50 per ton. Phone 50. L. M. West, Agent.

FOR ROAD Government May Help V?l dez People A Washington dispatch of Jatiuaay 22 says: Then senate committee on territo ries, of which Mr. Beveridge, of Indi ana, is chairman, decided to adopt spe cial legislative tactics in order to put through the Valdez-Kagle City wagon road project. The committee voted unanimonsly to favorably report the Nelson bill, appro priating $250,000 for this road, and to ask its reference to the conjmittee on appropriations. The object of asking this reference is to have the measure put through as an amendment to the sundry civil bill, which is the greatest vehicle' of miscel laneous legislation in the senate. By presenting the bill as art amendment to one of the big appropriation hills in stead of 18 a Separate mdasure, all doubt as to Its reaching the considera tion of the senate in the regular course of business will be eliminated. Senator Beveridge, as well as the other members of the territory s com mittee, are determined that the wagon road appropriation shall g(? through. So far as the development pf new re sources in Alaska isconcemed, they re gard this measure as more important than any other that has beeu presented this winter. Senator Nelson toda\ reintroduced his bill providing for the construction of roads, the establishment of schools and care of insane and destitute pet sons in Alaska with certain amend ments. The bill, however, is practi cally the same as before. Each school district is to get from *300 to #1000 un der the bill, instead of from 41000 to $2000, as before.
