The Juneau Kmpirs of October 2d published an Article la which it claimed to throw "Light on Dele gate's Chirgw," and in so doing sought to discredit that gentleman aoj accused him of placing judge Jennings and other democrats who -.re supporting Chas. E. Bunnell in a false light in thi» public speeches h.8 was making through Tending only portion* of the letters which he hid received from them while push ing certain Alaska measures through congres®. Now as the Empir* appears to be engaged in an effort to uplift the people ot the territory through a democratic education of its voters, wo should like to why it was so dilatory ia bringing the matter above referred to, to their at tention? On Septem tor 16th, Judge Wicker sham started his campaign with an address to the people of Ketcai k*c, on Sept. 19th, he was at Petersburg, on Sept, 28th, he was at Juneau, from which point he went to Sitka aa 1 then returned to Juneau, on Oct. 1st, h« was in Skagway aud on Oct. ®d, he was in Haines. Aud in all of these places be made the same use of, and the sane allusion# to the letters he hod received from Judge Jennings, John W Troy, Ch&s. E. Bunnell and others, and there was not even a "cheep" from the Empire as to their not being authentic, nor any complaint that the subject matter contained iu them had been garbled by Mr. Wickersham to suit his own *uds. On the 4th Judge Wicker sham left for the westward, without having seen the article in the Empire, and therefore, without hav ing had a chance to reply. If the Empire was sincere in its belief of Judge Wickersham's al leged underhanded political methods 1 why did It rot confront him with the evidence It now claims to have uiscovered of his duplicity while he was in our midst and could have j been publicly confounded to the | great edification of the Alaskan ] democracy and th« enlightmest of j the voters of *11 parties in the | First Division? Fifteen days j should have been ample time in ! which to have thrown off the en- j veloping cloak that obscured the i democratic light and have allowed j its rays to penetrate even into the, n-.ost obscure and darkest political corners. Why wait until Mr. Wickersham 1 was not in a position to reply to the charge brought? There Is food •here for reflection, and investiga tion .is well, by the voters at the coming election. • • IMPORTED" VRODt'CTS J*;*™ Human nature is pretty much the same the world over, and when we read of the California society ladies Paying exorbitant prices for "im ported" ostrich plumes for decorat ing their headgear that had been raised on the ostrich farms near Los Angeles, sent from there to London to receive the proper stamp, returned to America as an imported article, and sold at a much higher price than could be obtained for a home labeled feather of exactly the same size and quality, -we are re minded of some things that are hap pening in Alaska along practically the same lines, the only difference being tiiat instead of the discrimina tion being against luxuries, it was against a food product that is al most a necessity. To illustrate how this was done in at least one Instance *-e quote from a recent issue oi the Ruby Record-Citixan; "The following is an extract from a letter received by A. Haaryei, the rtcw-ct. from H. S- Emerson & Co.. of Seattle; "No doubt yon are surprised at tho price of Swedish turnips. The shipment I am sending you today was raised in Haines, Alaska. In fact, we have not had a good turnip or "baga" raised In this country to ship this soason, as they are all wormy." first aid circulars Few people throughout the Un ited States realize the important work being done by the govern ment along many lines, in order to assist people to become' more ef ficient In ©very-day life, or to reap greater results from the ef forts put forth. By Alaskans the government geological survey is considered one of the most important bureaus at Washington, but this cau be of but little internet to a vast majority of people in tho United States. The many bulletins on agricultare, each covering its own section, from Al aska to Fioriia, interests a much larger number, but the little circu lar that is of interest to all north erners, is the one that deals dir ectly with man and teaches us how to alleviate suffering and often save life. Such a circular is published by the bureau or mines, department of the iuterior, entitled •"Miners' Cir cular No. 8, First Aid Instructions for Miners." In a plain, maUer-of (act way, with many illustrations, it sets forth the first treatment for accidents of nearly every descrip tion, including fractures, disloca tion, wounds of every kind, burns, scalds and treatment when overcome by gas. How to bandage all parts of the body is made clear by many | illustrations and minute directions. It is hard to conceive of a coun- | try where the inhabiatnt® can use Knowledge of this nature to better advantage than in Alaska, where thousands of men pursue their vo cation year in and year out, many miles from surgical aid. None who have been in Alaska for years, but have seen the time when such knowledge was needed and perhaps bv its immediate application some poor fellow's life might have been saved. This circular should be fn the hands of every person in this sec tion. The government distributes them free. If you do not need it the other fellow may, and it Bhould be given careful consideration by all. On the outside the government is going to great pains to instruct the miners along these lines. At present the bureau of minea* sup port® eight cars that are taken from place to place in mining dfB trictg to instruct the miners by lec tures and exemplification^ in first aid. HOWS THIS?

Cleveland, 0., Oct. 5—Th# larg est woman suffrage parade demon stration ever held iu America took place in Cleveland Saturday, when 3,000 women and more than 200 men marched through several miles of the downtown streets. Saturday's showing marked the "beginning of the end" of tho campaign to gain votes for a woman suffrage amend ment to the state constitution at the general eletcion in November. Heading the parade was Joan of : Arc on a white horse, immediately followed by officers of Ohio's Wo- I man Suffrage association, including ! many of Ohio's foremost women. Homemakers marched with women [ oj the business world. College women in cap and gov, n walked shoulder to shoulder with "servant gills" in white aprons and caps. City women in smart tailored gowns miigled freely with their plainer sisters from the farms and villages. Ono of tho most prominent fea ture® of tho celebration was a large peace float at tile very eud of the parade. Another float which at tracted attention was one depict- j i^g woman's part in tha history of Ohio. Following this were large wagons bearing Ohio's pioneer suf fragists, drawn by fifty children, all members of the Jttuior anxililary of the state association. At every corner a woman stepped i from the line of march to inoiii^. a j stool or dry goods box to sflieak to j the assembled crowds. The mam-1 moth demonstration today was the climax of oue of tl e most complete and spirited camp.iigus Ohio has ever seen. Far wee'es women from all over thy country have been in Ohio giving freely their efforts to bring "votes for women'* one step nearer the Atlantic seaboard. Every village and city lias seen the big yellow bannered automobiles in which the workers travel from place to place arousing enthusiasm for "the cause.'" At suffrage headquarters in Clove land is a small iron pot, such as i are seen in charge of Salvation At- 1 mjr workers at holiday time. Into j thifl have gone treasure* worth sev- j eral hundred dollars, and others worth little In money, but priceless to their owners. They are sacri- j fices in the fight to gain the vote, j One girl sent in her wedding ring with the comment "it is all I have.'' | Dollar contributions have also play- j ed a large part In raising Minds.
