FAIRBANKS IS AFTER
DEMOCRATIC CON VENTION
There are a number of reasous why
the Democratic territorial convention
should be held in Fairbanks this year.
The chief reason, in the opinion of the
Times, is that the coast towns are
not to be relied upon for satisfactory
results. Both of the old parties have
tried them, and always with the same
result. With the Republicans, it was
a case of too much boss rule, and with
the Democrats, lack of harmony has
interfered seriously with the proceed
It is time Fairbanks&ns were given
an opportunty toi conduct a really suc
cessful convention ? a convention
which will be a credit both to the
town and to the party which holds it.

Territorial politics, having a vote
nearly twice as great as that of any
other division, and it is time we re
We trust that the Tanana Valley
Democratic club will insist upon hold

A BETTER REMEDY .
THAN NASTY SALTS
Few people like to take physic, es
pecially salts, because they are so dis
agreeable to take and because of the
griping and pains they cause. Rexall
Orderlies enable you to take less phys
ic. and all without griping, purging or
excessive looseness Salts and harsh
physics usualy give only temporary re
lief and often leave the bowels worse
off than before.
Rexall Orderlies move the bowels
promptly, and soothe, tone and
strengthen the intestinal muscles,
leaving them healthy and regular in
action. They taste like candy, and the
movement they cause is as easy and
natural as though your bowels were in
perfect health and you never had to
take any physic at all. We have so
much faith in Rexall Orderlies that wo
urge you to try them with the under
standing that, If they do not satisfy
you in every way. -.11 you have to do
to get your money back is to tell us.
We honestly believe them to be the
best bowel remedy made. In vest

You can buy Rexall Orderlies only
at The Rexall Stores, and in this town

FAULKNER ASKS FOR
i United States Marshal H. L. Faulk
i ner has asked the Department of
? Justice to provide police protection to
i the 47 canneries of Southeastern Alas
- ka, and those living in their vicinity,
and other outlying points. He has
called attention to the fact that many
i crimes, including a half-dozen or so
homlcldos, have taken place within
tho last few years among the mixed
populations of the various outlying can
neries, and strongly urges that a gas
oline boat, with a deputy marshal and
a court commissioner be provided to
mnintain a patrol service among them.
In writing, Marshal Faulkner calls
attention to homicides that have taken
place at Dundas Ray, Rose Inlet, Hunt
er's Bay, Quadra and Chatham, all
within the last two years.
He says, further, the illicit sale of
intoxicants to the Indians employed
at tho canneries, is carried on by oth
er employees without restriction; and
this is accompanied by the usual ef
fects of drunkenness nnd debauchery."
In support of his request, Marshal
Faulkner says that under the law and
regulations he has no authority to in
cur any expense in the prevention of!
crime or in the maintenance of peace. I
Inclosed with tho request addressed
to the Attornoy-Goncral was a list of
the_47 canneries, in several of which
200 people aro employed arid the crews
of ull of which are "made of a great
many different nationalities, such as
Indians, Chinese, Japanese, Mexicans,
Filipinos, Portuguese, |Koreans and Ha
waiians, most of their brought from
the slums of San Francisco, Portland
He says "many crimes are commit
ted every season; but Rowing to the pe
culiar conditions, the! mixture of the
lowest classes of so rohny different na
tions. and the distande of the canner
ies from the nearest peace officers,
Justice is seldom administered."
