KETCHIKAN NOT WELL SATISFIED Thinki Juneau Folki Are Putting Their Feet in the Political Trough That KotcMkan, as one of the outlying districts from tho capital < Uy of Juneau, does not take any too kindly to the action of the Ju neau Republican Club at a rccont meeting In endorsing ouly member* of that club for territorial cITIce la rather sarcastically reflected lu tho following telegram vent last Wed nesday night to the Juneau Repub lican ('lull by Senator J. It. Heck ?nan of Ketchikan: "Your excelleut body la to be con gratulated for the party spirit shown in your recent meeting when you picked for all Territorial offices K?od residents of Juneau. Of course, wo, in the outlying section, realize full well that the name Uod who ordained that the kalccr should rule also chosc the members of your or ganization to rule not only the des tinies of the Republican party in Alaska, but also Alaska itself, and, knowing further that your organi zation was entirely responsible for the selection of J. C. McBrlde as National Committeeman and for the general sweeping victory of the Re publican party in tho Territory at the polls In November, we of the land unanolntcd bow In humble sub mission to your superior wisdom, staunch Republicanism and thorough pioneer spirit. Such magnanimity as your organization has shown vlli undoubtedly weld together the bonds of Republicanism throughout the Territory and put tho party worker* in a frama of mind to continue work for Its glorification as they have In the past, ever regardless of what they are entitled to themselves and always anxious to serve the cuds of your little coterie." STRONG DEMAND FOR LIBERTY BONDS Federal Retcrve Bank Report* More Buyer* Than Seller* of Securities of Smaller Denomination* Scar lr. De< 1.1. -Reports to the Branch Federal Reserve Usnk here from local members Indicate a strong Investment for Liberty lionds and Victory Note* by the general public. In (wo InHlances large banks reported that they were oversold and obliged to purchase small lots of Liberty Uonds from other banks to supply the demand. The Issues ill demand, according to figures supplied by the Federal Reserve Dank, are thoaa paying 4 '4 and 4 % per cent Interest. Ap parently there Is no active market for bonds of the 3^4 per cent or notes of the 3% per cent issues. Rank transactions show the de mand for Liberties came chiefly from small Investors who have taken advantage of the attractive market prices of Liberty Honds and Vic tory Notes and Intend to hold the securities until maturity. This seems to apply also in othor cities of the Twelfth Federal Reserve Dis trict on the basis of reports made by locul banks to the Federal Reserve Bank branches and to the Federal Reserve Hank itself in San Fran cisco. "To summarize the loca' situation here." according to an official of the Federal Reserve Rank, "there are more buyers than sellers of bonds of the smaller denominations." Despite the recessions In the East ern markets, unprecedented In years as far as Industrial stocks and bonds are concerned, Liberty Bonds and Victory Notes are holding well to previous levels. Small Investor* i throughout the country are appar ently benefitting by the experience* ' of those who lost their money in i ? lldcat stocks of various descrlp i lions and are more and more con ' tending themselves with the abso | lute safety and security of Liberty Bonds which. In several instances, ? are paying from 5 to SH per cent . at present market prices, while Vlc i tory Notes are yielding as high ss . | 6 V4 per cent.

Juneau early in January are Dick MeCormlck and l'lo Martini of Doug las and Paul Graham of Trcadwell. . All of the boys will go Into training next week for the matches.
