T- V"'~..... - i OH:in>\ A, ALASKA, MONDAY, OCTOBER .30, 1916. WiCKLRdHAM IS REPRESENTATIVE OF THE PEOPLE. lb legale \\ iekershaiu is not getting his support from federal office holder- in Alaska. Appointive officers represent the po litical government at Washington and Wickersham represents the elective portion of the territory and the interests of the two lie far apart. There was a time in Alaska when the wee small voice of the elective population in Alaska was smothered by the appointive officers. The latter controlled the situation and showed lit tle respect or concern for the wishes of the people. But with Wickersham battling for the interests of the peo ple in Washington, year after year, and securing for them in the face of <h tei mined opposition, local legislative functions, tiler.- has lie.-n a considerable change in the attitude of appoin tive offic. rwho now realize that the elective voice of the peo ple with a spokesman like Wickersham, means that the time is past v lieu they can longer ignore the elective wishes of the peo ple. Indeed, with visions of statehood near, some of the ap pointive officers are anxious to fill the offices that will be ere ati il. Therefore, they have a willing ear bent to the ground Aloivover, while trying to throw a monkey wrench into the Wickersham elective support with one hand, they are actively canvassing for votes for their legislative friend's with the othei hand. However, the people of Alaska have eyes to see and ears to hear and have* knocked about the world enough to recognizi the diff. re nee between copper filings and real gold. Wicker sham ha- been tried and found true to their interests, and they do not propose to -wap horses in crossing the stream. They an glad to si-e the different candidates and hear what they havi to eff.-r, hut most of them have already made up their mind's and see no reason in changing delegates.—Juneau Dispatch. _»n •_ ELECTION FORECAST. Tim Chicago Tribune has made a close inquiry into the po litical si-nlimem of the country and concludes, two weeks ii advane; of election, that the prospects are good for the sue cess of M r. 11 ughes. 'There are 5.‘!1 votes in the electoral college and a total o1 266 is needed for a victory. There are twenty-one states witl 210 oli otoral vote-, that are reliiibly Republican. There ar< th'i-6 n tatos with ltd electoral votes reliably Democratic There aiv fourteen states with 172 electoral votes in the doubt fni column. In these Hughes must get 56 votes to win, whih "Wilson must gain 117 out of the 172 to win. The surface chances are thus plainly with the Republican candidate. Of the doubtful states the vote of New York for Hughe> and any otiaT one state with as many as 11 electoral votes would giv • him the election. New York and Indiana, or New York and < Hiio. or New York and Wisconsin, would do the trick Yet Hughes might lose New York and still win. If Wilson loses New York it is conceded by the Democratic managers that h< lias but a slim chance for success. New York, then, as in many past elections, is the great bat 1 h-gi'i mid, the crucial state in this campaign, and the Tammanj organization. In retofore unfriendly to the Wilson administra tion, is likelv to cast the deciding vote. Notwithstanding al this, the Democratic managers claim that from 300 to 350 elec total votes will be cast for Wilson, and' that every state outsidr of the Democratic South is a doubtiul state. The last time Tammany sunk its tomahawk into the De Timeraev, in 1 DOS, New York went Republican by a plurality ol 202,602 votes. Plainly, if there be grounds for Democratic optimism, it must be from some cause not apparent to the average political prophet. . . BROTHER BILL’S PLATFORM. In the Prohibition convention at St. Paul, the name of W il liam Kulzer has been perhaps more frequently mentioned than anv other, but his admirers were unable to obtain his nomina tion. Soon afterwards, delegates to a convention of the Ameri can party assembled in Minneapolis and nominated Mr. Kulzer as candidate for president and Mr. I. (J. Pollard, of Indiana, for vice president. This part) had been formed in New York two vears ago, to enable Mr. Kulzer to run for governor and' thus afford the people an opportunity to reverse the result of the im peachment proceedings. The American party platform declares for religious liber tv, separation of church and state, free speech, free press, free public schools, equal suffrage, prohibition, government owner ship and control of public utilities, the initiative, referendum and recall, and the abolition of child labor. Mr. Kulzer believes that his party would “redeem America from rum rule and Rome rule.”—Review of Reviews for Keptember. —-:o: Our “national prosperity” has now reached the point where President Wilson’s department of agriculture is advising housewives to begin using potatoes instead'of wheat in the mak ing of bread, and the department is now ready to begin sending out recipes.. .n_ EVERY TOILET ACCESSORY you can Imagine Is included in our display of such specialties.

Understand that Wickersharn and his supporters since l left Cordova have been exhibiting what purports to be a copy of a letter claimed to have been written by me before 1 was nomi nated as the Democratic candidate for delegate to congress from Alaska regarding the wet and dry question, which is to be submitted to the voters of Alaska at the coming election. Regardless of what my personal opinion on this subject may be, I pledge myself to the people of Alaska that if elected delegate to congress I will positively be governed' by the will of the people of Alaska on this question, and will do everything in my power to carry out the will of the people as shown by the elec tion returns.
