Why Do Men Insure?
? .
and Why Are Insured Men Most Always =
Citizens of Worth in Their
Community
A drop of water falls into a stagnant pool and remains,
growing filthier and more ill-smelling each day, and polluting,
with its fellow drops, the surrounding atmosphere.,
ANOTHER drop of water, no purer and no larger, falls into
a mountain rivulet, where it sings its way, augmented by thou
sands of other drops, to the river, and then on to the ocean, in
creasing in force and power with every mile it covers. It turns
mill wheels, furnishes power for electric light plants, irrigates
waste land, and it always producing results.
IN JUST SUCH A WAY two men's lives may differ. The
one a spendthrift and ne'er-do-well, thinking only of self and his
pleasures. \
Mixing with other men of his kind he finally, like the first
drop, falls into the "slough of despond." His usefulness is gone
and soon he is not missed when Father Time gathers him in.
His life was a failure, and his death even more so.
The other man gets his innings. He grasps his opportunities.
No task is too great, and no work can be called drudgery, for he
has a goal and is producing.
While hammering his way over obstacles with never-tiring
zeal, he does not forget to think of the future, and always puts
aside a part of his income in good, legal reserve life insurance.
When his final calling comes, he goes to the great beyond
as a conqueror in the fight. He has done his duty, and while
doing it, has painstakingly protected himself and his family.
Which of these men would you prefer to be?
"Every man in the world worthy the name, loves something
?his wife, his children, his mother, his sister, his reputation
before other men. If he has not that sentiment in his soul, he i
is a poor stick. When he buys life insurance he is elevating and I
satisfying that one high, human sentiment by providing for that ?:
which he loves.
Insurance is the one thing in the world that, at the least I
cost, and with the utmost certainty, supplies that demand and de
sire of noble sentiment.
The Northern Life not only protects your family when death
comes, but pays to you the face of your policy if you lose hands,
feet, or eyes, and pays you a monthly indemnity up to $200.00 t
per month if sick, or disabled by accident. u

ELECTION FIGURES |t
INDICATE BUNNELL (
A study of the election returns for
he last Delegate election held In Aug- J
st, 1912, and for the members of the
'orritorlal Legislature in November "
allowing, show that the total vote in 11
lugust for the entire Territory was 's
,220 and iu November, but 7.S45, a
ailing of; due no doubt to people go- ?
ag Outside for the winter, of 375. '
lut a study of the totals for each dl- sl
ision will show that this loss was dis- 'v
ributed between the. Second and v
'ourth divisions for both the First!
nd Third show an increase in the! v
Jovember vote over that cast in An- S
ust. The Fourth division suffered \d
he greatest loss dropping from 3,439, 81
a August to 2,800 in November, vihile 0
he First shows the greatest gain, in-' b'
reasing from 1,395 in August to 1,- "
47 in November. The Second drop
ed from 1,528 In August to 1,096 in
Covember, while the Third increased
rom 1,858 in August to 2,002 in No- ()
ember. The Fourth lost 639, and the ll
iecond 432, while the First gained 522, :
he Third gained 144. n
In the August election Delegate
Vickersham received his great pirn
allty in the Fourth division, 1,691 of 1
he 3,439 cast. In the Third he re
:eived 750 of tho 1.S58; in the Sec
>nd he received but 290 out of 1,528; 8
ind in the First he received 604 of the 1
1,395 cast
i I? onnhllpi n pp.
UUUiUlC, iUfeUlUt (
:eived 685 in bis home division, the I
Second, out of the 1,52S cast; 539 of ^
he 1.85S cast in the Third; 311 in the 8
Fourth and 191 in the First. Kraucz- 8
jnas. Socialist, received 227 votes in c
lis home division, the First; 271 in 8
:ho Second; 192 in the Third, and -
)98 in the Fourth. Jennings received
136 in the First, 276 in the Second;
2S1 in the Third, and 281 in the
Fourth. Martin Harraic received 281 1
kotes all told.
Since both of the elections it is con
ceded that there has been a falling
or in population in the Fourth divis
ion of considerable moment, which,
if true, will further decrease the No- t
vember vote of that division where t
Delegate Wickersham'o greatest I
strength lies. It Is also conceded i
that there has been a very consld- 1
erable increase in the population of '
the First division where there has de- 1
veloptd a strong support for Charles t
E. Bunnell. The Second division will
perhaps show some decrease, but not
of such proportions as that of the
Fourth, while the Third will undoubt
edly show considerable of an increase,
according to the estimates of those
in a position to know. It is conceded
that the Third dlvisron is strongly for
Buunell.
As an index to the probablo increase
in voting strength of the First divis
ion the vote of Juneau for Delegate
in August 1912 was 338 for all candi
dates, while the. vote at the last city
election in April of this year, reached
a total of 892. - New population at
Perseverance, Thane and suburbs of
Juneau will materially increase the
vote in this vicinity.

IN THE WAR NOW
LONDON, Oct. 30 ?Turkey's action
in making war on Russia has pro
foundly stirred the countries of the
Meriterranean and Adriatic. It is
believed that it will be impossible for
Greece to remain out of the conflict,
and it is likely that Italy will become
involved also.
It is thought here that Greece,
Italy and Roumania may align them
selves against Turkey and that Bul
garia may help the latter country.

Whatever may have been Delegate

le Alaska railroad terminus at

int he mndo three conflicting prom
os to the people of the Westward is
ddenced by the following affidavit
nd comment printed in the Valdez
iines, which is corroborative of
Latemcnt8 of prominent people of
aldez. Sbward and elsewhere at tho
Westward:
"That tho statement of Delegate
/ickersham, made In his address last
aturday night to tho people of Cor
ova, that he had taken a neutral
Land regarding the coast terminus
f the government railroad, is not
orne out by tho facts, ic evidenced by
ie following affidavit from Valdez:
" "Valdoz, Alaska, Oct. 20, 1914.

WILSON' LETTER
TOWICKERSHAM
i
i
The letter from President Wood- 1
row Wilson to Delegate James'Wlck- I
3rsham which appears on the posters 1
ibout town was the acknowledgement
of a letter that the Delegate had writ* I
ten to the President.
Delegate Wickersham wrote the
President a letter thanking him for ,
the expressions contained in his mes- ,
?age to Congress, delivered December (
2, 1913, concerning Alaska. The Presi-J
lent expressed his appreciation of the
letter.
The first proposition set forth in the
message praised by the Delegate was
that Alaska should havo a "full Ter
ritorial form of government." The
Delegate has never made a move to
have that suggestion c-. Tied further.
Instead of that, he lias introduced
measures further to curtail the pow
er of the government Alaska already
has.

DELEGATE DODGES
ON JOHNSON BILL
Delegate James Wlckersham tele
graphs from Seward that he did not
introduce the bill postponing assess
ments on mining claims in Alaska. It
will bo remembered that the tele
graphic dispatch published in the last
Issue of the Citizen, from Juneau, did
not accuse Mr. Wlckersham of Intro
ducing the bill, but of being its au
thor. Representative Johnson, of
Washington, was the man who intro
duced the bill, but Mr. Johnson Is
quoted as having said that although
he Introduced the bill, it was really
prepared by Mr. Wlckersham. Why
doesn't Mr. Wickersham deny having
framed the bill, which would result,
If passed, in a material saving for
iiimself??(Fairbanks Citizen.)
PREJUDICE CONTROLS
JUDGE WICKERSHAM
There is one thing that the most
sincere friends of Mr. Wickcrsham
must admit if they p.re absolutely
truthful, and that is that he wiliyal
low personal prejudices to interfere
with his oillcial duties. It is well
known that the reason Mr. Wickcr
sham never secured a bridge for Fair
banks was his dislike for Col. Rich
ardson, head of the Alaska road com
mission, who would have directed the
building of the structure. If Mr.
Wlckersliam Is returned to Congress
it can be expected that he will not
go out of his way to aid tho road
commission to get tho local petition
for the bridge approved.? (Fairbanks
Citizen.)
