The Cordova Republican Club has given its unanimous endorsement to George C. Hazelet for governor of Alaska. This action was taken at a special meeting, held last night, in the Eagle lodge room, and which was largely attended by the members. President Nathanael Green was in the chair and after stating the object of the meeting James L. Galen, chairman of the local campaign committee, tool; the floor and in a masterly speech, set ting forth the qualifications of Cor dova's candidate and giving the best of reasons why he should be selected as Alaska’s chief executive, he presented the name of George C. Hazelt for govrnor of Alaska. Sec onding speeches were also made by Dr. \V. H. Chase, F. F. Foster, George Dooley and Malcolm Brock, who paid a glowing tribute to the quali fications of our townsman and urged that every member of the club get busy and not rest content until the appointment had been made and confirmed. In presenting the name of Mr. Hazelet for governor, Mr. Galen said: Mr. President. Ladies and Gentle men : A little over a year ago, to be exact on September 19, 1919, we or ganized this Republican Club. Our idea in organizing at that time wts to line up and to harmon ize all Republicans in this section so that by united action we might be able to assist in the accomplish ment of the magnificent victory, both nationally and territorially, wit nessed on Tuesday last. How well we have succeeded is eloquently evidenced by the vote, cast on April 27 in the primary elec tion, by which we reaped the first benefits of organization, and, again on November 2, when we returned ■ flattering majority for every Re publican candidate from delegate to congress to road commissioner in the face of no trifling opposition I can assure you. So in this respect we have been functioning most beautifully and suc cessfully. Another important purpose in or ■ nizing this club was that w? might be in a favorable position to par ticipate in and share the fruits of victory by directing party policies and appointments in the territory. Mr. President, we have reached that stage tonight, and, since we have contributed so bountifully to the success of the party I for one do not believe in sleeping upon our rights. Some may have the opinion and urge that action at this time is hur ried and inadvisable since most of the offices, both territorial and di visional, do not become available by expiration of their respective terms until about one year hence. I fully agree that this argument does apply with respect to divisional offices such ;:s: judges, marshals and so on. !>',n it does not apply to territorial offices and particularly to (hat of governor. As it very often happens, and such practice might well uni formly obtain, that when a governor, who is the chief executive and spokesman for all the people of the territory, finds that he is not in accord with them and the new ad ministration he resigns forthwith. Consequently this office may become vacant any time after the -lib of March next. Therefore I am going to propose that we go after this, the biggest job in Alaska, because we have gained the right to ask for it and because, in my opinion, we have tire biggest and best man in' Alaska to fill it. His residence in Alaska for upwards of twenty years, his ex celent business judgment, tact, affa bility. broad mindedness, and hon esty and integrity beyond question are but a few of his qualifications. The vote of confidence accorded him by the electors of the territory in the primary election last spring and particularly the all but unani mous vote of his home town and vicinity, the manner in which he executed the trust at that time con ferred. and, finally, his tireless ef forts and political sagacity in bring ing all Republicans to work in har mony in one big happy family, thus r.iaKing possiuie tne victory recently achieved, designate him as the logi cal candidate for this high office. Mr. President. I have the honor to move, and I'll assure you I deem it a great honor, that the Cordova Republican Club, in this meeting as sembeld, endorse for governor of the territory of Alaska, our fellow towns man and respected and worthy citi zen. Mr. George C. Hazelet. After the club had unanimously endorsed the candidacy of Mr. Hazelet tell following resolution presented by Thos. S. Scott was passed: M'he reap, the Cordova Republican Club has on this day unanimously endorsed Mr. Geo. C. Hazelet for governor of the territory of Alaska, believing him to be a candidate who embodies and represents all the qualifications most desirable for that high office and one whom all sec tions may feel proud to support, now therefore, be it Resolved, that the Cordova Re publican Club earnestly asks the co operation of the Territorial Republi can Organization and all Republican Clubs throughout the territory In the movement to secure the appoint ment of Geo. C. Hazelet for governor of the territory of Alaska. Be it further resolved that a copy of these resolutions be sent to the delegate-elect to congress, the ter ritorial national committeeman, mem bers of the territorial Republican Organization, and to each Republi can Club throughout the territory.
