TO THE VOTERS OF ALASKA
1 feel it my duty as Democratic
National Committeeman for Alaska to
reply to a few of the untruthful and
nconsistent statements made by
Judge Wickersham in his speech at
Valdez on the evening of the 14th
lay of October, 191(5.
Judge Wickersham claimed in Se
ttle, Ketchikan, Juneau and other
places that he had secured the legis
ation which resulted in the govern
nent constructed railroad in Alaska.
Knowing this to be an untruthful
statement I deemed it my duty to
Ascertain the facts regarding tlpe Na-j
ional legislation which authorized the I
instruction of a government owned j
•ailroad in Alaska. 1 therefore on
\ugust 15th, 1916, wired Secretary)
Lane to send me a history of the Al-|
iska Railroad legislation in Congress.
Dn August 19th, 1916, in response to
his wire 1 received the following:
Washington, I). C.,
August 19th, 1916.

jinally introduced by Wickershain
moviding for legislative assembly did

John W. Troy,
Alaska Railroad Bill my bill. Pass

which the railroad in Alaska is be

by me at the request of Wickersham
nor written by bin, and but for the
active support of President Wilson
and the administration it would not
have passed at all.
(signed) Geo. E. t Taninerlain.
Judge Wickersham devoted a con
siderable portion of his speech to an
attack upon myself and I am free to
confess that I am at a loss to know
why this was done, not that it makes
the slightest difference to me, but 1
am certainly not an issue in this
campaign as 1 am not a candidate
for any office, either elective or ap
pointive. Hut he seeks through me
to tie the Democratic party to tin*
Guggenheims, the Fish t orporation,
the Transportation Companies and to
Shackleford, whom l believe is gener
ally recognized as being the leader of
the Republican party of Alaska.
There is no alliance, secret or other
wise, between the Democratic pavt\
and the Shackleford wing of the Re
publican party of Alaska. Iheie is
no alliance, secret or otherwise, be
tween the Democratic party and the
Guggenheims, the Fish Corporations
or the Transportation Companies und
neither of these companies have con
tributed one cent towards defraying
the expenses of the Democratic pait)
campaign for this year. As an indi

My Dear Mr. Thane.
This letter is written to you in en
tire frankness and confidence, ^our
reply will be held strictly confidenti
al also. I have made every effort in
my power to secure a proper organi
zation of the Republican party in Al
aska sp that we might not only elect
the Delegate but the Republican mem
bers of the Legislature as well. It
seems to me the situation is such to
urge all members of the party to lay
aside personal grief and join hands
that Alaska may stand square with
the Administration of Hughes and
Fairbanks after the 4th of next
I shall support the Republican Na
tional ticket as l have always done,
except in the single instance of four
years ago. When Mr. Roosevelt was
candidate I supported him. 1 send
you herewith a copy of the letters and
telegrrms which passed between me
and tfho?e in charge of the Seward
Convention insofar as the nomination
for Delegate is concerned. From this
correspondence you will discover that
if I had agreed to surrender my free
dom as the representative of the peo
ple of Alaska in the matter of patron
age 1 v oi.ld have I een nominated
there. I did not do that and in my
refusal was and now am fully sup
ported by the Congressional Republi
can Committee, to whom all the cor
respondence and the facts were sub
The question which confronts me
now is: what will you and my other
g«od friends in Juneau do in the mat
ter of assisting me to secure proper
organization of the Republican party
through the Divisional Convention.
Will you support me as a candidate
for Delegate with earnestness,—or at
all? Would my nomination in the Di
visional Convention in the First Di
vision be agreeable to you and would
it £;ve strength to the organization
and assist in electing Republican
members to the Legislature? If 1
can feel assured that I can have a
fair support around Juneau I feel sure
of re-election. Will you write me
what the situation is and what I can
depend upon in the First Division.
Your reply will be held strictly con
Very truly yours,
(signed) JAMES WICKERSHAM.”
Mr. Wickersham on the same day
wrote an identical letter to I\ F.
Bradley who controls the great Tread
well corporations. You will note from
Judge Wickersham's letter to Mr.
Thane his longing to co-operate with
Mr. Thane. Mr. Thane is manager of
the Gastineau mine and Mr. D. C.
Jackling is the president and control
ling factor of the Gastineau Mining
Co. Mr. Jackling is also a large
stockholder and reputed to have the
controlling interest in the Pacific Al
aska Navigation Co., which company
operates what is known as the “Ad
miral Line" of boats. So much for
one transportation company.
Let us now see about the other
transportation company. At the re
cent Republican Divisional Convention
of the Third Division, held at Val
dez on the 17th day of July, 1016, Mr.
George C. Hazelet who is generally
recognized as the Guggenheim politi
cal representative of the Third Di
vision secured in that Convention the
nomination of Mr. Wickersham for
Delegate to Congress as a candidate
of the Republican party of the Third
Judicial Division. The aggregation
of wealth commonly known as the
Guggenheims own the Kennecott
Mine, the Copper River & Northwest
ern Railway Co., and the Alaska
Steamship Company. Does it seem
possible that Mr. Hazelet as the poli
tical representative of the Third Di
vision of these immense interests
would secure the nomination of a man
who was sincerely opposing them.?
Does it not appear more reasonable
that the alleged antagonism of Judge
Wickersham’s to those interests is
merely a blutr for tin* purposes of get
1 ting the vote of the unthinking peo
pie. My information is that Mr.
Hazelet has been ever since the Con
vention which nominated Mr. Wick
ersham and now is sincerely and earn
estly working for the electi n of Mr.
Mr. Wickersham devoted a great
, portion of his recent speech at Valdez
to stating what he had done in the
way of securing legislation while in
Congress and named a number of laws
, he had passed but he failed to mention
one very important law which he had
I passed on July 18. 1014, which reliev
ed the Copper River & Northwestern
Railway with other railway companies
in Alaska from paying the license
tax theretofore imposed of $100.00 per
annum per mile. I fail to find where
Mr. Wickersham has ever used his
great talents to relieve the restaurant
j keeper, hotel keeper, cigar store,
' boarding house, etc., from this feder
' al license tax, but he seems to have
been moved by a great sympathy for
the poor downtrodden Guggenheims
struggling along with their Copper
River & Northwestern Railway Co.,
hence he secured the passage of the
bill which relieved them from paying
$100.00 per annum per mile tax on
