VOL III NO 427 JUNEAU, ALASKA, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 8, 1914. PRICE, TEN CENTS . J| ! Citizens' Ticket Wins In Juneau's Election +?? 1 THE NEW COUNCIL X JOHN RECK J. R. WILLIS C. W. FRIES WILLIAM BRITT F. WOLLAND GEORGE F. MILLER WILLIAM GEOOES For School Board W. W. CASEY I ? All of the votes have been counted and the foregoing first mentioned sev en have been chosen to succeed the present City Council and W. W. Casey has been elected to the school board to succeed H. J. Fisher. The canvas was not completed until about 1 o'clock this morning. There were 892 votes cast out of a total registration of 1015. Result of the Voting The votes received by each candi date on the various tickets were as follows: Citizens' Ticket JOHN* RECK 496 J. R. WILLIS 477 C. W. FRIES 445 WILLIAM BRITT 441 WILLIAM GEDDES 405 W. H. CASE 366 C. W. CARTER 300 People's Ticket F. WOLLAND 412 GEORGE F. MILLER 409 E. VALENTINE 397 G. K. GILBERT 371 R. M. KEENY 334 M. E. RUSSELL 323 H. RUHE 295 Socialist Ticket A. B. CALAHAM 130 H. J. LORENZEN 93 ItAFTON COLEMAN 90 PETER TWE1T 89 CHARLES HELSING .... 79 GEORGE HARKRIDER ... 74 OSCAR HARRI 70 For School Board W. W. CASEY 343 LUI.A B. THOMPSON 255 ANNA CAROLINE LORENZEN.. .115 Of the seven Councilmen elected, five were on the Citizens' ticket and two were on the People's ticket. Wil liam Geddes is the only member of the present City Council of the three who had places on the Citizens' tick et. who was re-elected. He beat out K. Valentine, the third high man on the People's ticket, by the narrow margin of eight votes. Mayor C. W. Carter on whom the hardest fight was made by the opposition was low man on the Citikens' ticket, but he defeated the lowest man on the Peo ple's ticket. Councilman W. H. Case, the other defeated candidate on the Citizens' ticket was only 31 votes be hind Mr. Valentine. Mayor Carter and W. H. Case suf fered from the bitter campangn that was conducted against the old Council, and they largely were victims of mud throwing. They. also, were cut by those who differed with the judgment of the old Council in any of its poli cies. and all those with a grievance, real or imaginary. The personal pop ularity and known worth of F. Wol land. George F. Miller and other can didates on the People's party ticket added to the effectiveness of the cam paign against them. One of the surprises was the poor showing made by the Socialists. The vote was not so large as that of a year ago. and not half so great as many believed it would be. There were many split tickets cast late in the day and these votes were largely divided between the high men on the People's ticket and the leading candi dates on the Socialist ticket. This vote was the first to be canvassed and the early returns seemed to indi cate that Valentine and likely four others on the People's ticket would win. but when the vote, which was cast early in the day. was reached i there was a decided change and the! Citizens' ticket began a steady gain| that never ceased until the end of the counting, and five of Its candidates were beyond the danger line. The contest between W. W. Casey and Mrs. Lula B. Thompson for clerk of the schol board was a pretty fight during the early part of the canvas, but Mr. Casey toward the last began a gain that did not cease until he had a wide margin. The interest in the campaign was attested by the fact that hundreds of people remained up until after the bal lots were counted, early this morning.

There are no regular members in these placeB or on Prince of Wales Island and these men. while living In other towns, di rect the missionary activities at Hy daburg and Kasaan through Native laymen. Hydaburg is on the lower end of Prince of Wales Island and was founded three or four years lower end of Prince of Wales Island and was founded threo or four years ago by Native Hyda Indians from Howkr.n. Klingnun and other villages under tht direction of the U. S. Bu reau of Education. It has now one of the best school buildings and well or ganized school work throughout the whole Territory. The government has all the industrial work in hand, and the religious part of the place is left entirely in the care of the Presbyter ian chuhch. The report of Mr. Wag goner shows that the Native Indians, if properly advised and directed, can do many good and useful things for themselves and the country.

The people erected their own church building a few years ago without any outside aid, and they are today among the most progressive Indians along the coast. GRAND THEATRE ?I?

F. Cheek, yesterday, who recently returned from Washington. "The exhibit of Alaska's resources which was in the Senate office build ing was more eloquent than speeches. It was absolutely convincing. Then the members of the bureau, including Charles G. Helfner, Secretary* McPher son, Will H. Parry, Falcon Joslln and others, were at work all the time mak ing friends for Alaska.
