Abstract

Government.—Alaska was purchased by the United States from Russia ander the treaty of March 30, 1867, for 7,200,000 dollars, at one penny an acre. It 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; the legislative assembly consists of 1(5 senators, elected for 4 years, and 24 representatives, elected for 2 years. Congress reserved to itself the right to legislate on certain subjects, so that the Territory is 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; to be eligible he must have resided for 3 years in the Territory.
