June 12.?To the Editor? The diving rod in the hands of expert politicians is seeking out the well springs of the various parties. In the years past the Territory has been well explored and the located sources care fully conducted by devious channels to the main reservoir of the party's supply. But a new source presents itself to tho forked hazel?the wom en's vote. Truly the women of Alaska did not seek In legislative halls the franchise ?many tried to avoid the issue. How ever, tho Alaskan woman recognizes tho responsibility placed upon her and will assume the duties of suffrage as her sisters are doing in the States. Tho women's vote, though small, is one to be reckoned with in the mak ing up of the political slate. The ward bosses, having dealt with men in their generation, arc naturally aghast at tho demands made upon them by tho newly-franchlsed women. In many communities candidates are requested to appear before women's clubs and to state the principles for which they stand, while all candidates are passed upon by investigating committees as to moral character and general quali fications. The franchise has come in time to save woman from "Bridgitis." The "Auction" devotee declares the recall to be vastly more exciting than "Ave honors" or "a hundred aces." This is demonstrated by the way the mnyors of Seattle and Tncoma were marched up the hill to annihilation and then, for the sake of onothor thrill, they marched them down again. Woman's intuition or spiritual Insight is liable to have some effect even upon Alas knn politics. To some extent the Northern wom en are different from the general race feminine. Her staying qualities are more thoroughly developed, nnd her gambling instinct is Intact. In spite of the fact that she Is a good fellow when she loses, she thoroughly loves to win. For this reason no weakling need seek her vote but a man of ster ling principles and wholesome morals. The camp fires gleam. The war is not yet on, but forces are assembling. Tomorrow may see the lineup. Re member, Warriors bold, Kipling's "Fe male of the Species" when is comes to the real scrimmage. (Signed) Little Sister of the Boss. CHANGE AT THE ORPHEUm.
