(Special Dispatch to The Daily Alaskan) Seattle, July 10? The report published a few days ago in the Seattle Times to the ef fect that Cale had withdrawn from the race for the delegateship was without any founda tion whatever and was a palpable falsehood. I last evening received a telegram from Mr. Cale in response to one from me making in quiry as to the truth of the announcement in the Times. Mr. Cale's wire is as lollows: A. E- Light, Seattle? "Owing to the very ! serious illness of my wife it will be impossible j for me to go to Alaska to take part in the camyaign at this time as I had intended. My friends must take charge until later. (Signed) THOMAS CALE. In another message Mr. Cale says that not only his wife in Fond du Lac but his daugh ter in Dakota is very sick and both are beer ging him to be with them. He has been com pelled to travel back and forward between the two places and so has been out of com munication with his friends, and his secre tary and is apparently not aware of what is going on here in Alaska. The friends of Mr, Cale who are here de clare that while they could wish that he might be on the ground, that people might see him and hear what he may have to tell them, they propose to see him through the campaign- The announcement that Cale had withdrawn was made by the supporters of Corson lor political purposes and was nothing more than a trick- employed to take advant age of a man detained at the bedside of a sick wife Mr. Cale says he is in the field to stay, and t^at, in deference to his friends who have been lending him support he could not do otherwise. He greatly regrets he cannot leave his family for he would like to be in the fight. A. E. LIG-HT, L, A. HARRISON CO, OUR SIXTH MILLIN ERY SHIPMENT of Gage and Merry Widow hats is now 011 display.

" THE EFFECTlf FAIRBANKS Special Diipatcb to the Daily Alaskan ' Fairbanks, July 10 ? The withdrawal of Cale and Wickersham has resulted in aligning the parties against one another.
