ed his telegraphic endorsement to f

+ ANOTHER REASON TO *
+ DEFEAT WICKERSHAM ??.
+ The President's telgram en- <?
?> aorsing the candidacy of +
+ Charles E. Bunnell makes a +
+ few things clear: +
+ 1. The only way now that *
+ the people of Alaska can show +
+ their appreciation of what Pres- *
+ ident Wilson has done for Alas- + ,
+ ka is to vote for his choince, * 1
+ Charles E. Bunnell. He has + i
? asked for it ? <
+ 2. A vote against the Presi- *
+ dent's choice for Delegate to *
+ Congress Is a vote against the ? I
+ administration which has saved +
+ Alaska from stagnation and de- ?> \
* cay. + ?
+ 3. One more thing must be +
kept in mind: It is known that + ,
?fr Delegate Wickersham Is a re- +
? lentless fighter against every +
+ one who opposes him. The clr- +
v cumstance that the President .
<? has endorsed his opponent pre- *
+ eludes the possibility of Wick- +
* ersham's supporting the Presi- +
> dent or working with him. He +
+ won't do it. He will fight the +
+ President. ALASKA HAD +
+ BETTER BY FAR HAVE NO +
+ DELEGATE DURING THE +
+ NEXT TWO YEARS THAN +
+ TO ELECT WICKERSHAM. *

as I did on the regular Democratic

a letter from Austin, of Ketchikan,
stating that he was having a ticket
printed. I wired to the Empire and
branded it as a conspiracy in the in

ticket, and he replied that he was not

declined and I wired Austin 'advise
you that 1 absolutely forbid you print
