FRAME MOVEMENT IN STATE OF COLLAPSE The practically complote collapse of the movement for a convention of the alleged organization of the Frame alleged Democrats at Valdez, July 30, next to the universal Interest that is being taken in the Skagway Democrat ic convention, is the most marked po litical development of the Inst few weeks. In spite of the publicity given the so-called "Progressive Democratic convention" at Ketchikan, wherein delegates to the aforesaid Frame con vention were elected, word comes from the First City that there was no representation outside of Ketchikan at that "convention,"" that, so far as can be learned, no primary or caucus to select delegates to that "conven tion" was called or held in any pre cinct in the First division except in Ketchikan, that "less than a dozen" were present at the caucus tnere, ana that those who were present were in session Just "four" minutes. The same lack of interest in the al leged Frame organization that char acterizes the First division is pro valient elsewhero in Aalska. So far as can be learned there are no sup porters at all for it In the Second or Fourth Divisions, and none outside of one or two precincts in the Third, and "very little there." Practically all of those who partici pated in the Martin Harrais campaign of two years ago are actively working with the regular organization in all four of the Judicial divisions. At Fair banks Martin Harrais, himself, R. F. Roth, E. W. Grlflln, J. H. Caskey (whose paper, the Citizen, supported Harrais) and others of tho Harrais faction are delegates to the Skagway convention, and working in harmony with other Fairbanks Democrats who supported Judge R. W. Jennings in that campaign. Representative N. J. Svinseth. who was nominated by tho so-called Ket chikan convention for Representative, is one of those who has signed the call for a primary at Wrangell to elect delegates to the Skagway convention. In fact, the evidence is that Dele gate James Wickersham would have no traffic with the Frame "Progressive Democrats," and direct information has been received from him by frionds in Juneau that he will not accept a nomination from them. "OVERHEARD." "John, I need a few things this morn ing at the drug store, but it is rather disagreeable out. Will you step in on your way to lunch and get it for me?"
