Part of the The Statesman’s Yearbook book series (SYBK)


Government.—Alaska was purchased by the United States from Russia under the treaty of March 30, 1867, for 7,200,000 dollars, but was not organized until 1884, when it became a ‘District’ governed by the laws of the State of Oregon. By Act of Congress approved August 24, 1912, Alaska became a Territory, with a legislative assembly consisting of 8 senators, elected for 4 years, and 16 representatives, elected for 2 years. Congress reserved to itself the right to legislate on certain subjects, so that the Territory is now governed conjointly by Congress at Washington and by its local legislative assembly. Regular sessions are held biennially and last for 60 days. Special sessions may be called by the Governor. The latter is appointed for four years by the President.
