The old Baying, "Familiarity broods
contempt," does not hold good with
Alaska; on tho contrary, it begets a
fondness which swells Into enthusi
asm ns one fact after another is dis
covered and demonstrated. In some
way or other tho country has a draw
ing and winning effect upon most per
sons who have lived there, if only for
i tnhort period. Some aro attracted
by tho beauty and magnificence of tho
scenery, nnd others llnd rest and re-turning-vigor
In tho mildness and even
ness of tho climate; some, again, at
tracted by tho wonders of tho veget
able and animal kingdoms, nnd others,
tho majority perhaps, delvo into tho
richness of tho mineral treasuries,
writes John G. Drndy, ex-governor of
Alaska in Independent. Tho adven
turers into Ilrltlsh Columbia, tho Yu
kon territory and Alaska aro a hardy
and buoyant stock.
Those who have gotten up our phys
ical geographies were pumping from
dry wells when they came to treat of
the northwest coast of America. Much
that was given was erroneous. For in
stance, Mount St. Ellas In ono edition
of tho Encyclopedia Drltannlca is
spoken of as a burning volcnno. Many
well educated people well along In
middle life become Impatient when
tho deficiency is revealed to them. It
Is well that this is so, for by a reas
onable amount of dlligenco they can
make good tho loss and have much
pleasuro In acquiring Information so
inuch at variance with preconceived
size, color and firmness. Denlcrs and
mlnerB bocomo wonderfully accurate)
in these mntters. Gold production In
tho north called for now methods nnd
these wore Introduced nnd Improved
year by year.
The possibilities for stock raising
and dairy farming nre almost beyond
calculation. Sunlight nnd moisture
sufficient for plant life aro unfailing.
Tho limits of this nrtlclo will not al
low even a brief discussion of other
rich resources furs, copper, lead, sil
ver, tin, gypsum, marble. Iron, coal,
llsh nnd timber.

proved to bo wisdom. Tho present pop
ulation is small, possibly 35,000 na
tives and about tho same number of
whites. The aborigines are a good
stock, ami with fair treatment and
uiicoiirnRoment will do their full share
in labor and development. They aro
doing It today In tho fisheries, tho log
ging enmps nnd in tho mines. Wo
can hardly contemplate tho history of
our ownership of tho vast possession
for tho past 41 years with prldo.
Tho next need Is railway transports
tlon. Tho whole southeast and south
era coast has good harbors, which are
accessible at any season, and for the
most part rates aro reasonable. But

these things in Alaska.
