VOL. IV., NO. 524. JUNEAU. ALASKA. THURSDAY, JULY 23, 1914. ' ? PRICE, TEN CENTS Democratic Primaries Give Everyone Equal Chance The plain Intimation by the Dispatch thla morning that the anti-Wickorsham men In the Juneau Democratic club are taking unfair methods to prevent a free expression of the will of the Democrats of Juneau is resented by some of the leading Democrats of this city as being unfair?unintentionally, maybe, but nevertheless unfair. Noth ing has been done by the club that would In any manner prevent the Dem ocrats of this city from sending a Wickersham delegation to Skagway in case there are more Wickersham Dem ocrats here than there are antl-Wlck ersham Democrats. The rules tor the primary election? in the formulation of which the chief part was enacted by a close friend of Delegate Wickersham. even to the suggestion of the judges and clerks of the election?provide that those participating must promise, if chal lenged. to support the nominee of the Skagway convention. This is just as binding on the anti-Wickcrshnm men ?and those who are not necessarily antl-Wlckcrsham. but with whom he is not the first choice?as upon those who favor the nomination by the Dem ocrats of the Delegate. If the Juneau primary should select a Wickersham delegation and he should be nominated at Skagway. or if he should be nom inated at Skagway without the con sent of the Juneau Democrats, all those participating in the primary bind themselves to support him. The intimation that the judges se lected in the first instance to conduct the primary ? selected before they were placed in nomination for dele gates. and four out of five of them sug ' Rested by a Wlckersham supporter would tolerate anything except a fair primary and an honest count is un fair to some of the leading men of this city. The judges selected were Perry Wiley, Angus Mackay and W. W. Casev, and the clerks Thomas Cole and S. H. Millwee. The Juneau Democratic club did not select its delegate ticket at a secret ' meeting. The club has had but one meeting since its organization from which others than members were ex cluded. and at that meeting financial and other strictly club maters were discussed. In selecting a ticket, the club did not even bind its own members to sup port it i It is doubtless fair to say that a < large majority of those on the club pri- < marv ticket are not in favor of the < nomination of Delegate Wickersham at i Skagwav, though one, J. H. Cobb, the i lawyer who represented the regular i Democracy before the credentials com- . mlttee at the Baltimore convention, ] favors his nomination, and all of them will support him if he is the nominee. ; Skagway not for Joslin. SKAGWAY. July 23. ? The rumor that Skagwav Democrats have endors- t ed Falcon Joslin for the nomination j for the Delegate to Congress is false. ,, Local Democrats will meet tonight for t the purpose of organizing a Democrat- . ic club and to make arrangements for t a primary election Saturday to choose | delegates to the Territorial conven- j tion which convenes here August 3. NEW JUDGES FOR THE PRIMARY ELECTION t ?? j The committee of the Juneau Demo- <i cratlc Club, which prepared the plans, I rules and regulations for the Demo- i cratlc primary election that will take I place Saturday afternoon, at the re- t quest of Angus Mackay and W. W. t Casey, who were selected for judges of the primary election before they ^ were placed in nomination for dele gates. decided today to accept their resignations and name others. The other judges who will act with Perry Wiley will be announced tomorrow. j1 Labor Paper not for Wlckersham. v, It must not be thought that because li the Daily Industrial Worker, of Nome, v a paper conducted by the Western ii Federation of Miners' local at that > place, thinks that Delegate James c Wlckersham will be re-elected, that it is supporting his candidacy or v thinks he deserves his popularity, a After predicting the probable re-elec- r tion of Delegate Wickersham. The In- v dustrial Worker says: c "Wlckersham has always at least s been an Interesting figure, if his po pularity has been a somewhat diffi cult to understand. We see no par ticular reason for his claiming the railroad legislation as his own. any more than he can claim that the Terri- v torlal legislation was his own. 11 "Much of the purely Wickersham c legislation was defective in many 1 ways, while the defects of the legls- r lation claimed by him for the most % part can be discounted by him or ( claimed by him just as he has a I mind so to do. "AS a politician Wickersham is con- ' summatebly able, and he has the hap- v py faculty of placing his polittclal v wares before the people so that they will buy. This is a nicer way of say- f ing that he can effectively hook his line and catch the suckers. But it is the same thing. "The genial art of serious bull con that will be taken seriously is one in which Mr. Wickersham Is an adept. He can fool the workers, the operators, the Guggs. the doctors, the lawyers, the preachers and fool them to the top of his ability. Such gifts in a politi cian are not to be despised, what might appear vicious when practiced by the common or garden confidence J man. when made use of by the able politician reach a standard which claims with right the wings of vir- ' tue. It is essentially the politicians' function." i "JOY WALK." i + Doran's well known and guaran- J teed corn salve or liquid corn reme- ! dy when applied for few nights, will I make life's walk easy, and life worth living. 7-23-tf. , THE WEATHER TODAY.

IMPROVING DIXON STREET. A small force of men are at work grading the Dixon street hill near W. Ninth street.' EMINENT RUSSIAN MINING MAN HERE E. N. Barbot deAlnrny, eiuinonLmln lng cngiueor of St. Petersburg. Russia, and a director of the Lena Gold Fields Co., the largest gold mining company In Russia, 1h In Juneau and a guest of the Hotel Cain. Mr, Barbot do Marny arrived in Juneau Tuesday ulght en route to the interior of Alaska via Yukon Territory. Ho will visit Daw son, Fairbanks, iditarod, and Nome. The purpose of his visit is to study the methods and processes of mining in this country, particularly that fea ture which has to do with frozen grav els. The mines of the Lena are all deep placers and frozen, llko they are in Yukon and interior Alaska. The Lena Gold Fields company has immenso holdings and operates on a very large scale. The company employes 7.000 men and sluices up annually ton tons of pure gold. The pay is at a depth of 140 feet on an average, too deep for dredging successfully, therefore the pay is mined similar to the system em ployed In Yukon and Alaska, except the old crude method of thawing the frozen, gravels with wood llres, or in lieu of wood. coal. Is still In vogue. The Introduction of steam thawing plants is now contemplated by the company and this Is one reason that this pro cess of mining is of particulsr interest to the visitor. While In Dawson ho will visit the Immense dredgers em ployed by the Boyles on tho Klondlko concession and will see the great thaw ing plants In operation. Although there are no quartz mines In tho Lena Holds, Mr. Barbot de Mar ny takes a keen interest In the great quartz mines of Southeastern Alaska, particularly those in the Juneau dis trict and he will visit Treadwell and the other mines of this section If pos sible. There are many quaitz inlneB in the Ural mountains he says and im menso'bodies of low grade ores but as yet they lie untouched because of the Inability to work them at a profit. While the cost of labor, he says, Is less in Russia than here, the results obtained are proportionately less, therefore American operators can work ores at a profit that Russia can not touch. Mr. Barbot de Marny Is greatly im pressed with Juneau. Spenking of his visit to this section he said: "I am highly pleased with Juneau and its surroundings. 1 am more delighted with the scenery here than with the better known Switzerland. It Is more beautiful and has a grander expanse. It reminds mo greatly of the Northern part of Ural." From Nome, Mr. Barbot de Marny will sail direct to Seattle and from that place back to Russia. $100,000,000 TO COME TO ALASKA *7> SEATTLE:, .Tilly 2::.?Judge Donald A.
