Some Him1 ago the Gateway mentioned the tact thal Delegate Wicker
>ham had paid lor a ticket on a Guggenheim ship at Seward and it finished
up the story by saying tbai the “Juneau Empire will smell another rat.’
1 tial wasn't much ot a jose until the Emipre itself wrote a whole editorial
about ti and prove tnul it wasn’t smelling rats or anything like it. Ihe
editorial i> reproduced ill Ini'* issue in the Viassa news column. “Ihe Empire
is not conducting a rat smelling campaign’ il says and it goes on to say that
the Gateway na> been pc*rasing the Empire to little purpose. So there is
nothing lett lor tne Gateway to do but to express its sorrow that it ever
lliougiii ii possible lor the Empire to smell rats. Political partisanship tends
to undermine ones sense ot the ridiculous and that is a pity, lor an election
in Alaska could provide lots ot tun it we gave up the horrible thunder,
iiowever, this paper regrets suggesting the possession ol any canine in
stinct to any contemporary, especially io a good, clean and well edited one,
anu never again will it be ever ninlcd mat any rodentian perfumes struck tne
olactory nerves ot anyone.
Many newspapers seem to think that they are effectively working tor or
against some political candidate it they keep constantly calling him names.
It would he well it newspapermen recognized the futility of this sort of work.
In \laska some of the papers come out with hig, long rigmaroles supposed
to be against some man running for election hut when anyone reads them and
know * that the paper is opposed to the person against whom it is delivering
its thunder its effect is completely lost. Many times during a political i am*
paign in Alaska people ask a newspaper why it isn t attacking some candidate
or another. If it fails to scrawl a lot of Billingsgate over its editorial columns
against a man it must he in tavor ol that man. lhat really seems to he the
philosophy of a surprisingly large number of intelligent people. And it is
altogether wrong for calling names to a man without having any proof. It only
makes his friends more friendly to him and never makes an enemy
A newspaper should have a good argument or shut up altogether.
I nless a newspaper can say something really damaging every attack
it makes on an opponent only gives that opponent cheap advertising and
makes his friends more solid.
If a political opponent is a brainy, strong one you prove his strength all
the more by weak attacks
If an opponent is weak, incompetent sort ol gentleman, forget him,
except to the extent of preventing those who do not know him from being
folded by his friends.
But. above all things, do not show by stuttering over columns of inani
ties that you have an undying hate tor him. and thereby only show that
whatever you say about him should he taken with a copious dose of salt
Big spluttering newspaper attacks without proof ot wrong doing
reflects on the newspaper itsrlf and never does the most minute injury to
the person attacked. I’nintelligent newspaper diatribes against candidates
have elected more of those candidates than the praise of their friends could

Referring to the circumstances that
Delegate Wickersham made his trip
to Seward on a “Guggenheim” ship,
the Seward Gaevvay says: “The Jun
eau Kmpire will smell another rat.”
The Gateway editor has been reading
The Kmpire to little purpose. The
Kmpire is not conducting a “rat
smelling” campaign. It is discussing
the issues that confront the people of
Alaska, and Delegate Wickersham’s
relation to them as indicated by the
written record and the Delegate s
speeches. Its charges are everyone of
them based on facts and not surmise
or suspicion-ami not a charge made or
a statement of fact set forth has been
successfully contradicted. — Juneau
