It is about slxtcon years sinco tho
United States purchased from Russia
the Territory of Alaska, agreeing in
tho treaty of purchaso to extend to the
inhabitants tho operation and protec
tion of our laws. Tho necosalty of pro
viding some form of government for
tho territory has "wovural times bcou
urged upon the attention of Congress,
and yet hitherto nothing has been
done. Now, however, two bills are
pending boforo Congross ono in the
benato and one in tho Houso of Repre
sentatives that proposo to ostabllsh a
govemmont in Alaska. The Senate
bill provides for tho full machinery of
an ordinary territorial govornmont,
whilo tho House bill provides for an
attorney of tho United Statos, a dis
trict judge, and four commissioners,
with the powors of justices of tho
peace, to whom the management of
civil and criminal muttons in Alaska
is to bo committed for tho time boing.
This is, perhaps, sufllcient until the ter
ritory shall bo further dovoloped. The
present population of the territory is
about thirty-live thousand, of whom
only about flfteen hundred aro whito
poople. This population is now with
out any government, except such as
has been extemporized by tho pooplo
thomselvos. It is to bo hoped that Con
gress will not let this session pass with
out providing Bomo form of govern
ment for Alaska. Tho presont condi
tion of things is fraught with ovils of
a very grave charactor among tho peo-
plo and Is withal a dlsgraco to tho
United Stntes, and certainly is not in
harmony with our treaty stipulations
with Russia at the time of purchase.
Congress has ample power to supply
tho proper remedy, and should do so,
without further delay. New York In

taken for what each reader thinks It
worth, we will stato that ono of the
most far-sighted politicians In the stato

governor, and Albinus Nance tho next

about by tho same combination that
carried tho Slocumb apportionment

Hundreds of Christians and Europeans

thousand inhabitants is about ; de

which by a careless collision with an
other boat caused tho death of more
than sixty young men and women, has
como to a soiiBlblo conclusion. He
says "no pilot on any rlvor should al
low himself to take a drink of whis
ky." And all captains of boats and
managors of railroads would do well
to apply that rules to themselves and
employ no pilot, engineer, or conduc
tor who has a habit of drinking whis
ky. A tologram from Syracuse, N. Y.,
