CHARGES NOT TRUE
A WEEK ago yesterday the candi
dates on the Peoples' party
ticket promulgated a municipal
platform which charged the mem
bers of the present city council, in di
rect terms or by plain inference, with
crimes involving their official rectitude
and personal character. The platform
stated as the last proposition that
those who made it were "ready and
able to present evidence of time, dates,
circumstances and parties present" to
substantiate the charges that were
made in general terms.
One week ago today The Empire de
manded in the name of its readers who
are voters in Juneau that the proof
which the People's party candidates
announced that they possessed be pre
sented. It said until that was pre
sented they could not have any stand
ing before the people of this city in
any light but that of character assas
ins. The demand for the proof was
repeated on Monday. Tuesday and
Wednesday. A representative of the
paper called upon Mr. Valentine, who;
heads the People's party ticket, and
asked for the evidence that It might,
be presented to the people.
Only one business day now inter-1
venes before election day. and those]
who boasted that they could prove
that the members of the old city coun
cil were crooks and knaves have been
as silent as the grave. What is the
THE CHARGES ARE FALSE! The :
members of Juneau's municipal gov
ernment and the candidates on the Cit
izens' ticket were slandered. Their
slanderers should be defeated.
CITIZENS' TICKET RECOGNIZES j
WELL ESTABLISHED PRINCIPLE i
HE POLICY of not making a com
plete change in the personnel
^ of town and city councils at one
time has become so universally recog
nized that it is provided against by
law in most of the States. In practic
ally every State in the Nation only a
part of the city council is chosen at
each election. In many of them a ma
jority holds over. For instance, in Se
attle where they have nine council
men, three are chosen each year for
three-year terms. In the third class
municipalities of Washington?towns
of from 1500 to SOOO population?three
of the seven members hold over from
one election to the next, the rule be
ing to elect three councilmen each year
for two years and one for one year,
making the councilmanic membership
seven, the same as in Alaska.
This same policy is recognized in
most of the State governments. Dele
j gate Wlckersham gave It tils approval
| when he prepared the organic act for
Alaska, and Congress endorsed It when
it passed that act which provides that
half of the Senators shall hold over.
In making up the Citizens' ticket
this well established business policy
was recognized. A minority of the
members of the present city council?
Mayor Charles W. Carter, William H.
Case and William S. Geddes?who
have given the city excellent service
during the last year, were placed on
the ticket, and with them, constituting
i a majority of the ticket, were nomln
j ated four public spirited, able and ex
i perienced men of affairs?John Reck,
i William Britt, John R. Willis and C.
There is not a man on the ticket
who has not made good, measure him
by what standard you will. They are
| ?every one of them?men who are
used to bearing responsibility of a
public nature as well as having been
successful in their own affairs.
SPECIAL REASONS FOR JUNEAU
T1 HERE are special reasons why
good business demands that
there should not be a complete
change in the city council of Juneau.
| This city is growing and developing
at a rapid rate, and it is essential
that municipal development shall keep
up with it. The new council will come
into power at the season of the year
when plans for the year's work must
be made quickly and their execution
begun almost immediately. To meet
this situation there should be some
members of the present council who
are familiar with the details of the
city's affairs retained on the next. j
That desired end may be attained ?
by voting for the Citizens* ticket, a <
minority of whlc Is made up from the ]
j present council. ;
ALL OF Southeastern Alaska <
mourns the death of Harry Ma
lone. He had resided In this
section of Alaska for a decade and a
half. His acquaintance extended along
the coast from Ketchikan far to the
Westward, and all who knew him liked
him and called him friend. He poss
essed those qualities of character and
| temperament that make friends and
I holds them in a remarkable degree,
t And he was a good citizen. As agent !
I for others, as a business man, as a 1
public official and as a man among ^
men he always made good. He will be
| missed as few in this country will be
when their time shall come to answer
; the last summons. The wife and chil
| dren of Juneau's dead at Seattle have
the sympathy of everybody that knew
| Harry Malone.
