LHC Prohibition literature is very dry reading. Rarmtm was right; Theres a voter htun e\.i\ minute. Today a few men are fighting for jobs and the rest of America is neglecting its business and doing extra work to Help them. There is still a hope that, whichever side is elected, the United States may survive. W onder if Secretary Seward can see Alaska today. He bought the Territory about fifty years ago for less than the tiuggs get out of it now in a few months. And now we have a parliament and statesmen and. gee whiz, we have a wet and dry question. One can imagine Seward walking on the banks of the Stvx and meeting the vener ated “Soapy" Smith. What would they say to each other? Let us suppose that Fenelon in the other world wrote ad ditional chapters to “Dialogues des Marts," and what would he put into the conversation between the man who bought Alaska and the man who became the most famous of its residents. Hex Beach or Wick or Strong or Krause or Spence or Banjo Bill or Jack London or no one else ex cepted. Seward and Soapy would probably first ask each other how the election is going and like all the rest of the territory they would probably be divided between Sulzer and the Honorable Janies. Which of the candidates would the immortal Soapy vote for? This might be difficult to answer but, perhaps, one need not be a Sherlock Holmes to decide how Soapy would vote on a certain other ques tion. But. thoughts like these are only useful to direct the mind to the changes which have occurred in the Territory of Alaska since Seward lived and Soapy died. Roosevelt probably worked more effectively against Hughes than any Wilson man. He turned many Progres sives against the Republican and turned many peace lov ers towards the Democrats.- It is a funny thing that a supporter may he the greatest enemy. Wilson some time ago asked Colonel Harvey as a favor not to support his candidacy and if Hughes had good political sense he would have made a like request to the terrible Teddy. It is funny that apparent support is often taken at its face value. The usual run of politicians seem to have no conception of the power of subtlety. How often we hear a paper com ing out to tell us “we are for This or That” just as though anyone cared a continental whether it was or not. Politi cians and papers are often big babies. The baby screams when it wants something and so do its adult prototypes. It never seems to enter their heads that a false move or a careless statement by a supporter does more damage than all the attacks of the known opponent. For Road Commissioner Third Division.

The an nouncement that $1,000 was at the First National Bank at Fairbanks to bet that Sulzer would carry the First Division was made Monday evening. The stakeholders were arranged for Tuesday. The appearance of the money dated the Wickites as they had been advised by Wickersham followers at Juneau that money was ofTcred there at two to one that Wickersham would carry the First. They looked u(Son the appearance of the money as a campaign dodge, and proceeded at once to taking up a collection to cov er it. Thursday night, more than two days after the stakeholders had received the money, it was announced that they had about $0fi0 collected with which to ‘‘take the Juneau money.” The money was finally covered yesterday afternoon, and imediately local bet tors immediately put up $1,000 in $20 gold pieces at McIntosh and Kubon’s to bet that Sulzer would carry the First Division. Wickersham men are heap begged to take the money, but up to noon today not a cent of it had been covered.—Ex. Long distance telephone booth a> The Branch.
