T?s. by mall ?AVE LEARNED LESSON WELL That the Alaskan tones have learned well the lesson of monarchy and syco phancy could not be better demonstrat ed than by the manner in which they have received the report of the major ity of the senatorial sub-committee which visited Alaska last summer. They pretend to accept that report as a final verdict upon the question of the right of the people of Alaska to gov ern themselves. The fact that the peo- j pie of the district have asked for self government whenever givm an oppor tunity so to do counts for nothing with them. Three senator* of the United States, two of whom are from two of the three suites in the Union which are conceded to be retrograding in all that represents the virile age in which we live, have pronounced against self-gov ernment for those who are developing the resources of Alaska and who are adding more than a >core of millions Annually to the wealth of our nation. That settles it. We are not entitled to self-government. They have been jus tified in their attempts to prevent the application of the American principles of government to Alaska Did anything so assinine ever before eminate from people pretending to American citizenship? Could anything " be more incompatible with American institutions? Will the tories please ex plain by what magic these New Rag land senators became possessed of a mysterious acuteness of conscience through which it is given them to more clearly distinguish the distinctions be tween right and wrong than can be done by the hardy pioneers who have mastered northern conditions to such an extent that Alaska is producing more annually than any country on the globe populated by a people similarly numerous? Of course those tories who have any thing to think with know better than their words would indicate. They are simply trying to muddy up the water. They understand that senators are sim ply human beiogs like the rest of us and that some of them are very ordin ary ones at that. If it were not that senators are just as prone as other poor mortals to err in judgment there would not be fo much division among their members on nearly every question that comes up for their consideration. There are many men in Alaska who are fully as able as any of the three sen ators who signed the repo-t advising against territorial government for Alaska. Several of them were in the recent republican convention that was held at Juneau, and all of them voted tor territorial government for this dis trict. It will hardly be contended iliat these senators learned more as to the needs of Alaska in a few wieksthan has been learned by these Alaskans, who are their equal in ability, dur ing a residence covering many years. The inconsistency of those who are trying to make so much of the report of the senators from New England will be more apparent to any ooe who will imagine the attitude that these tories woukl assume should Senators Dilling ham, Burnham and Nelson come to Alaska to reside, and after such a tour through the district as they made last year attempt to run the affairs of the locality in which they located. The would be promptly invited to take a back seat until they had at least be come voters. They would be told that the people who have lived in the dis trict long enough to become familiar with the conditions are amply able to take care of it* affairs. But because they have been clothed with a little temporary authority, it is now urged that Alaskans must suspetxl their judg ment and accept that of the New Eng landers ! ..*? .. .1* .. is - IH .. ? ? ?MnraBBHHWMRMMnMVflnMMI ?Pallen House? j; Foot of Sixth Ave. *?

Bates Reasonable. H. S. PULLEN, Prop. The Record-Miner asks what the Trans-Mississippi congress would have done had the report of the majority of the senatorial sub-committee, which visited Alaska last summer, been read to it. It probably would have done just what It did do, viz: passed the res olutions offered by the Alaskan delega tion in that body. The Trans-Missis sippi congress has been urging legisla tion needed by western interests too long to quail before the frowns of two or three New Kngland senators. The members of that body are too well ac quainted with the men who make the nation's laws to have any superstitious awe of their so-called superior intelli gence. They are Americans who think as their minds direct. They are not rasals to do a master's bidding.

The presence of Inspector Pelletler in this city r calls an incident in North ern history that is pregnant with ro mance, for it was for the purpose of protecting his countrylfrom the so called Order of the Midnight Sun that he flrst came to this section of the coun try. Lieut. Pelletier is an expert in handling Maxim and other machine guns, and at the time it was flashed over the wires of the country that a mysterious order had been organized for the purpose of wresting the Klon nike from the Canadian government there was no one connected with the military arm of the Dominion in the Yukon country who was qualified to manipulate the Maxim gun that was at Whitehorse. Inspector Pelletier and 10 men were rushed from Kegina to the Yukon for the purpose of supplying the deficiency. The popular ofticer has been at Whitehorse and Dawson ever slnco that time.
