?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
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

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.
