PRESENT THE PROOF.
BEFORE THEY can have any right
to ask for consideration of any
kind for the affirmative things
set forth In the platform which they
have adopted or for the personal qual
ifications for official position of any
of themselves, the candidates of the
People's Party must substantiate the
charges they have made against the
members of the present City govern
ment and the candidates on the Citi
zens' ticket for the next, or they must
retract them. The good name of Ju
neau demands this, as do all the rules
of right and justice and fair dealing |
among men.
The charges made are grave in cnar
acter. They Involve not only the ad
ministrative capacity, but the official
rectitude and personal character of
sotue of the foremost business men of
this city. No man or men have any
moral or any other kind of right to
make charges such as those promul
gated yesterday by Mr. Valentino and :
the others on the ticket with him un
less they are in position to prove
them?and. considering the purpose
and circumstances of the charges, the
proof should accompany them.
If these charges are not susceptible
of proof to the point of moral certain
ty. they are vilely slanderous, and
their authors must retract them or
stand convicted before public opinion
as character assassins.
If we do not mistake the temper of
the times, the people of Alaska have
passed the time when they will tol
erate political campaigns conducted j
along lines of unfounded personal
abuse and wreckless assaults on
character. They are not going toj
permit men to rttarge fellow citizens:
of crimes involving their reputations
and their standing before the commun
ity for the purpose of merely gaining
power and prestige for themselves.
The members of the city adminis
tration are charged either in direct
terms or by plain inference in the
platform of the People's party, over |
the signature of all the candidates ofI
that party, among other things, of;
evading the payment of taxes them-!
selves and failure to exact taxes from
the "favored few." while they are ac- j
cused of "robbing" those without the
"Inner circle;" of giving free use of
the City wharf to "certain parties of
the Inner circle" whilo others have
; been charged to the limit; of frittering
I away $150,000 of the people's money
and being themselves the chief bene
ficiaries; of conducting the municipal
court for "oppression and revenue on
ly;" of employing a "horde of high
i salaried tyrants" who have oppressed
| the people and served no useful pur
jposo; of concealing the city's ac
counts; of conniving at preventing
those not friendly to the administra
tion from registering so as to become
qualified to vote; of the formation of
a "ring" for "sinister" purposes and
coercing "weaklings"? John Reck,
John R. Willis. William Britt and C.
W. Fries (?)?to become candidates
for Councilmen to servo the bidding
of the "Interests;" and other things of
like character.

proof before the People's party can
have any standing before the commun
ity. The proof must be conclusive and
not vain imaginings cr irresponsible
assertion. Their character is of a na
ture that is too grave for light treat
ment. Aud. in submitting the proof,
it should be borne in mind that some
of the charges and assertions in the
platform are so thoroughly contrary
to the general understanding of the
facts that the finger of doubt and sus
picion is pointing at all of them.
The people of Juneau are not going
to convict C. W. Carter. Harry J. Ray
mond. W. S. Geddes. W. H. Case. E. C.
Hurlbutt. W. S. Pullen, John B. Mar
shall. John Reck. John R. Willis. Wil
liam Britt, C. W. Fries, and E. W.
Pettlt of being knaves and weaklings
upon the bald assertion of any man or
half dozen men. The charges that
have been made against them must be
proved or letracted. or those that have
made them must, at least, stand forth
as not the proper men to be placed in
charge of the city's business.
Do not forget to register. The vote
of every patriotic citizen of Juneau
should be polled at the coming munici
pal election?and there is none in Ju
neau who does not want to be patriot
ic.
