GET AFTER THE . PROFITEERS Alleged That Some Deal ers Are Taking Advan tage War to Raise Butter Prices. The Food Administration Is turn ing the full power of its enforce ment machinery against dealers who are taking advantage of the present atrlngeney in butter supplies and are reaping heavy profits from the rising market. * Its inspectors throughout the country have been instructed to center their work upon Investiga tiona of butter operations and to ob tain a check upon the recent activi ties of dealers. Some manufacturers and dealers 1 who had stored late butter have been taking advantage of a rising market to remove their goods and to sell, aa fresh butter, on account of an advanced market. This .Is a clear violation of Food Administration rulings, which state that butter, both fresh and storage, shall be sold at prices not to ex ceed stipulated margin of profit over cost. The dealer Is not allowed to sell on the basis of replacement val ue. This eliminates all possibility of speculation, as the dealers in but ter are not allowed to profit by ab normal advances in market quota tions. Telegrams have been sent to Fed I eral Food Administrators, instruct I ing them to take decisive measures! in their- States to keep a close check on butter operations and to take vigorous action wherever violations are disclosed. The Inspectors have been notified that they are expected to center their attentions upon these operatioqs and to make a thorough investigation of tho entiro butter situation. OYSTER COCKTAILS ?

Splckett says the air Is full of politics and it reminds him of his boyhood days when he lived in an Irish ward in Detroit, his home city. It was an Irish ward and most of the Irishmen were Dem ocrats, while Splckett belonged to "de Republican gang." Most of the voters could not read, but knew that the mark of the "agle" repre sented the Democratic ticket. To get their vote for the Republicans, the Republican ballot was headed by a printed "agle." "I survived the wreck,' "said Mr. Splckett, "but after the trick played on them was discovered, I looked as if I had gone through a threshing machine." i r UNSPEAKABLY CONTEMPTI BLE AND DISGRACEFUL LY UNPATRIOTIC | - > i "When Judge Wickersham } calls Mr. Sulzer a slacker be cause he did not abandon his trust as the representative of the Territory of Alaska at Washington, where he was j constantly giving the advant age of his office and Alas i kan acquaintance to the Gov- ! eminent in connection with ?war activities, he is unspeak ably contemptible, and dls- j gracefully unpatriotic." Those were the words of ! an Alaska business man, who ' continued: "Alaska should and I con- j fidently believe Alaska will repudiate that sort of politics 1 j I by giving Delegate Sulzer a ! j majority so overwhelming that | character assasins will keep ] | out of politics in Alaska." (The business man who made I this statement asked that his j name not be mentioned for 1 j business reasons.

Oct. 2G?The Allies have' employed 50.000 Chinese behind the' righting lines in France principally i for road and railway building, black-1 smith and carpentry work. Although j China declared war on the Central! Powers almost a year ago the Chin-I cse are made to understand that | when transported to France they will not be used in the fighting lines. Coolies are paid about $13.50 a; month, and pay for other laborers ranges upward to about $27 a month for skilled men.

ALASKA NEEDS TEAM WORK WITH A DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. A DEMOCRATIC DELEGATE TO CONGRESS AND A DEMOCRATIC GOVERNOR OF ALASKA. A DEMOCRATIC LEGISLATURE FOR ALASKA IS IMPERATIVE. The nominees of the Democratic party for the Legislature were all nominated at the Priinaiy election as provided by Ter ritorial law and not by a "Hand-Picked," secret chamber so called convention as were several of the Republican candidates. Each of the Democratic candidates stands for the development of Alaska on a broad scale, and is for full Territorial government ?the government of Alaska by Alaskans.
