.-inimuc compiled by the census
enumerators tend to show that since
the dvent of the white man In large
numbers in the gold country and In
Northern Alaska the Eiklmaux are dy
ing off rapidly and are destined In
few years to become almost If not
'julle extinct. Arthur C. Jackson, pres
IJent of the Alaska Geographical So
ciety who spent two months during
the past summer In the territory says:
"The condition of the native Esquimaux
in Western Alaska Is pitiful to behold.
During the past year dls?oje has
wronght much havoc among them, and
unless some measures are token short
ly, by the government, to better their
condition It will only be a short time
until that race of people will be num
bered with the past. During our trav
eit, ror my wire was with me. we
saw many touching ,lghts. tome of
which are never to be, forgotten. To
the advance of clrllltatlon Is partly
Jue their state, for It cannot be said
that the Eskimo- haa yet adapted him
elf to the new conditions. While :
was at Cape Nome I talked with the
census supervisor!. . Ift informed me
that many of his enumerators, who
did the work In the Koyukuk district.
brought In with them stories of an ap
palling nature. He said that In several
of the districts, from the reports that
he had received he was convinced that
fully 60 per rent of the Indians had
died from disease and prlvaflon since
the enumeration began. In several of
the sections that we visited. we found
llttlo Indian huts In which there had
been no fire for the enUre winter sea
son. Wood was scarce; the head of
the family was either dead or 111 with
some one of the many diseases that
have been rampant among the Indians
of that section during the past season
ana mere was no one lert to go on a
Journey for wood. So through the long
winter day and night these Impoverish
ed people lived In squalid poverty with
no lire to. keep the body warm or with
which to prepare a meal, should the
victuals be In the house with which to
do It. ,
During a recent Interview the cap
tain of a ship now lvlng at Tacoma
is quoted as saying: "When the ques
tion was up before congress) much was
said about the protection of the sail
or; but nn experience of many years at
fO, both before the. mast and on the
quarterdeck has , convinced me that
anybody who loses any sleep over the
wrongs done this class of sailors had
better betow their sympathies upon
some other class of laborers. ' Now,
don't misunderstand me. I am not
harsh In my Judgment on sailors, but
upon the class of sailors who gener
ally nre the ones who kick up a fuss
nbout Ill-treatment, poor food and In
sufficient wages. On my voyage to this
one I cleared from Hull for China and
Japan ports, and from there to Aus
tralia for coal for 'Frisco, so that by
the time I reached 'Frisco I had been
nn thp way fourteen months, as I had
long waits In all the ports of call. Now,
my crew consisted of sixteen men be
fore the mast, and every man of these
sixteen had not lc than 30 pounds
coming to them, and yet, you can be
lieve ire or not. but before I haa been
In 'Frisco four days, nil I had left
of my sixteen men was four, the oth
er twelve had skipped over the side,
leaving 30 pounds wages due them!
and 1 am willing to wager not a single
one of these was shipped in even as
well found a ship as the one they had
deserted from; and two of them I af
terwards learned had shipped In a
packet that the mate was arrested for
brutally beating the crew. Another
thlng In this quesUon of crimping sail
ors is the question of charter rates. As
long as rates are ruling low. away
down In the twenty shilling scale, sail
ors are then getting the Identical wages
they are getting now when rrelght rates
have Jumped up to near the fifty shil
ling mark, therefore I don't see that
the ship owners have really much of
kick coming if the Doarding nouse
runners try and make a little extra
money out of the high rates prevail
ing, and If you come ciown to nara
facts, the one who Is toeing 'Jobbed'
Is tbe farmer who grows the grain in
the eastern section of this state.
