No Delegate fur Alaska This
Year
Alaska will not get a delegate In con
gress this year. 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."

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.
