Talked another hour to the Com. on Territories
today - finished my statement which
was a full presentation of Alaska
matters - what is and what is not wanted,
from Congress. My statements were taken
down in shorthand and I am to edit
them for printing. Upon the close of my
remarks the chairman, Edward L. Hamilton
of Michigan, publicly and in the name of the
Com. thanked me for my efforts, and paid me
a high and very gratifying compliment.
I presented him - not a compliment - but one
of my fine enlarged photographs of Mt. McKinley
All the Alaska men were there - Harlan,
Millard, Mackenzie, Dam, Ballaine,
&c. War news today Japan v. Russia.
