MIXES PERSONALITIES
AND POLITICS
That Delegate Jam ?? Wlckersham
has invariably personal Interest and
politics and turned on those who have
opposed him in any manner and for
the reason that they did oppose him
has been proved ovor and over again.
Even his war on the Guggenheim peo
ple began with their refusal to em
ploy him as an attorney at his terms
and their support of an opponent in
his first raco for Delegate to Congress.
Wlckersham Was Intimate with Gug
genheim*.
On April 8, 1908, only a few weeks
before announcing his candidacy for
Delegate to Congress, Judge Wicker
sham was on terms of Intimacy with
the Guggenheim officials in Alaska and
elsowhere. On that dato he wrote a
letter to Stephen Birch, head of the
Alaska Syndicate, the Guggenheim Al
aska company at Seattle, in response
to one received from Mr. Birch sug
gesting that ho. Wlckersham, should
become an attorney for the syndi
cate. He offered to become their
head attornty at a salary of $15,000
a year. There was nothing discredit
able about that, but the letter indi
cated friendliness.
Letter Was Friendly.
In that letter, Judge Wlckersham
said:
"I regret that 1 cannot meet you in
Seattle the latter part of this month,
because ono can make one's ideas
plainer in conversation than by writ
ing, but since the opening of the
April term of courts prevents It, I
shall briefly state the matter by letter.
"I havo entered upon the practice
of law here, and represent some of
the most Important interests in the
Territory, and the outlook for returns
is satisfactory, still I long for tho
fleshpots of tho "outoido," and would
accept an ofTer from your allied Alas
ka interests to act in any subordinate
capacity. I will accept a three years
contract at $15,000 per annum with
ofllces in Seattle and uffico force and
maintenance. Upon that sort of an
arrangement I would devote my time
exclusively to their interests, and
thom tho hoot norvleo nossible.
6"? ???"' r
My opportunities here, however, are
so good that I could not afford to give
them up for less than a three-years'
contract with you. Please advise me
by wire If anything Is done in con
nection with this offer and It may be
thus arranged.
"Remember me to Captain Jarvls."
Notified Jarvis and Sought Birch.
The position of chief attorney, be
ing one that already was filled, Judge
WlcKcrsham did not get the position
that ho said he would take. A few
weeks later he decided to run for Del
egate to Congress, and forthwith ho
telegraphed to Capt. D. H. Jarvls, high
official of the Guggenheim companies
at Seattle saying:
"I have decided to run for Dele
gate to Congress. Whore Is Birch?"
At this time Capt. Jarvls, to whom
the Delegate had sont his personal re
gards shortly before, and Stephen
Birch were the head officials of the
Guggenheim Alaska companies, and
whatever else the telegram might
moan, at least it did not indicate that
his candidacy was inimical to their
i desires.
Jarvis Supports Corson.
Howover, soon after the inaugura
I tlon of the campaign for Delegate to
Congress in 1908, it became known
I that Capt Jarvis was supporting
John W. Corson, the regular Republi
can nominee for Delegate. It was
then that Delegato Wickersham for
the first timo attacked the Guggen
helms for their participation in Alas
ka politics, and business methods, and
as a dangerous monopoly.
Fight Was Good One.
That this fight was one that should
have been made, and was one that re
sulted good to Alaskans, may very
well be admitted, but the point is that
it. in all probability, would not have
been made had Capt. Jarvis and Ste
phen Birch responded to the appar
ent approach that was made by Judge
Wickersham, and rendered the same
kind of support to him that they tried
to render to Corson.

FAVORED RAILROAD
AND HOME RULE
In hie speech at Valdoz, attacking
, Col. W. P. Richardson. Delegate Wick
ersham wild that ho had opposed a
railroad fjr Alaska and that he had
opposed Territorial government for
the Territory.
The Valdoz Miner of October 25
prints copies of letters in which Col.
Richardson, then Major Richardson,
writing to the Secretary of War, urg
ed government aid to ralroads In Al
aska aB long ago as January 24, 1906;
that ho urged a government railroad
January 30, 1908, and'that ho support
ed the railroad bill that was passed
last spring.
Why a Government Railroad.
In his letter of January 30, 1908,
to Secretary of War Taft, In Bupport
of a government railroad for Alaska,
Major Richardson said:
"Not only am I convlncod of tho
futility of dependence upon prlvato
enterprise and capital to accomplish
what Is needed for Alaska's develop
ment, but evory day emphasizes to
my mind the nocesslty for making
moro readily available at an early
date tho resources of that region, and
moro particularly Its extensive coal
doposlts, with the establishment of
suitable coaling station and with Im
proved communication by land, to the
end that the Territory may become
what, by Its geographical position, It
Is entitled to bo, a valuable strategic
base, in case of necesrlty for opera
tions in the Far East."
The Valdoz Miner continues Its
story of Col. RIchnrdcon's support of
Territorial government for Alaska
and his opposition to tho commission
form of government, saying:
"In September, 1909, President Taft
made his Seattle speech In which he
foreshadowed tho Beverldge plan for
a commission government for Alaska.
Before leaving Alaska that fall Col.
Richardson wroto and mailed a mem
orandum to tho President (October
26) respectfully sugge-stlng that the
commission project would be very un
welcome In Alaska. In this memo
randum he stated that bitter antago
nism to home rule by officials and
politicians In Alaska had driven near
' mm en?nr. It Thn
ly everyuuuy mw iu ??.
letter proceeds:
States Strong Objections.
" 'For three or four years this out
spoken opposition to the mere Idea
has been the cause of continual tur
moil In the Territory, and has been
the principal factor In giving strength
and cohesion to the extreme element
In its favor. A free admission of the
principle, with assurance of favorable
action as soon as the developments
and evidence of stable communities
shall seem to justify, will go far to
allay the agitation and turn the
thoughts of the people Into other
channels.
People Splendidly Qualified.
"'In respect to the natural qualifi
cations for self-government no citi
zens of our country are better equip
ped aB a whole than those In Alaska.
The majority nre intelligent, self-re
liant, full of the spirit of Independence,
and we have never had a more law
abiding frontier.'
"The memorandum closed with a
paragraph urging the government aid
to railroad construction in Alaska.
"When ho went to Washington a
little later Col. Richardson quietly
stated his objections to the commis
sion project, wherever ho could legi
timately. He discussed the matter
with Judge Wickercham, telling him
that the bill would bo a mistake. At
that time the two had been personal
friends for years. Suddenly the Dele
gate came out with the charge that
Col. Richardson was urging the bill.
The charge was in brazen defiance
of truth and Wlckershara know it,
but evidently thought he could make
capital for himself by fighting Rich
ardson."

GENERAL SUBJECT]
Our Autumn and Winter offerings in haberdashery are now completely mobilized,
and full lines of cravats, shirts half hose and underwear are at the front. It is diffi
cult to generalize on the good points of these smart clothes; they were all selected for
men who exercise keen discrimination in the matter of dress.
Why not place your order now for the things you'll need this winter. Prices have
not advanced, but that may not apply to the future.
A CHARACTERFUL DERBY
Every face requires a certain style of derby to conform to it. An inexperienced
salesman may hand you twenty different patterns before you find the one which looks
right. Such aimless trying on of hats is indeed trying. In our store every salesman
knows the style you'll like and quickly select it.
Our winter models are particularly smart this year. If the idea of a new hat is
in your head, come in and let us fit one properly on it.

BUNNELL'S CHANCES I
GROW BRIGHTER;
As election day draws nearer the
prospect for the success of the Dem
ocratic ticket grows brighter. All tho
clurs that have been cast at C. E Bun-;
nell, the Democratic candidate for Del-;
egate to Congress, all attempts to be-1
little hin abilities; the efforts to provej
him a Republican, have fallen flat, j
and have but re-acted against those
who have sought by those means to!
deprive him of tho support of the peo
ple of the Territory.
Wherever Mr. Bunnell has appeared
he has made friends, so many that his "
election Is practically assured. From ?!
the Second division comes the report ?'
that he will carry that division by a "?
good plurality. The Fourth division, 4
which has been the stronghold of Del- '
egato Wickersham, is rapidly chang- '
ing, and while it may give Hr. Wicker
sham a plurality, it will be a small *
one. In the Third, our own division, <j
which gave Mr. Wickersham a plu
rality of 211 votes over Gllmorc two
years ago, there will bo a plurality I
greater this year in favor of Mr Bun- |
nell. The First division was carried I
by Mr. Wickersham two years ago,
but so great has been the change of I
sentiment since then in that section; |
so many new voters nave oeen maao|
there that have expressed their pref
erence for Mr. Bunnell, that it is prac
tically assured that he will carry the
division by a good plurality.
By electing Mr. Bunnell the people
of Alaska will demonstrate to Presi
dent Wilson that they keenly appre
ciate his efforts to open up the terri
tory to development, and his intorest
in the welfare of those who have mado
the Territory their home. No hotter
man could have been selected to rep
resent the people of Alaska In the j
halls of Congress. He is free from i
all entangling alliances which might
curtail hlB usefulness. He will go to
Washington as a representative of the
plain people of tho Territory, and ho
will work, and if necessary fight, for
what is for the best interests of the
people here It Is the height of ab
surdity to say that Mr. Bunnell, a mem
ber of the dominant party, will be un
able to get more and get it easier than
a man of no party. Any man with the
slightest experience in practical poli
tics knows this to be true, and the
statements of Delegate Wlckersham to
the contrary notwithstanding, fighting
is not the only means of getting that
which one desires, but is usually the
last resort, and as a rule is not con
duBivo to extremely friendly feelings
on the part of the combatants, nor
does it lead to easier methods of ob
taining future favors. ? (Cordova
