AM rights of republication of special •Ttaiwitches herein arc also reserved. Foreign Advertising Representative _ THE AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION j THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1920 THE MAN FOR THE PLACE Less than two weeks ago the re sult of the election was uncertain. Today the smoke of political battle lias cleared away and the Repub lican party controls practically every office in the United States and Alas ka. Warren G. Harding will be in augurated president next March and Dan Sutherland will go to Washing ton as the Republican delegate from Alaska. Next in importance to the inauguration of Harding as presl den to the people of Seward and ail of Aaska is the appointing of men by the president to hod offices in the territory. The principal office to be filled by appointment is that of governor of Alaska. The one vital and all important, thing to the people of Alaska is that the man who receives this appointment should be an Alaskan. Ho must be able to represent the government at Washington and at the same time govern the present population of Alaska and the future population which promises to he five limes greater in a few years. Such men are few and scarce in Alaska at the present time but among the few is one who can qualify for the office from every angle. This man is the Hon. George C. Hazelet of Cordova. Mr. Hazelet came to Alas ka with the first pioneers in 1S98. He was born in Ohio in 1861. The same state which has produced seven presidents. On the 8th day of March 1898, Mr. Hazelet landed in Valdez. He prospected for gold and found it. In 1905 he assisted in or ganization of the Copper River and Northwestern Railway. He was elected first mayor of Cordova when that town was incorporated. He or ganized the Cordova Light and Pow er Company and installed the water works, electric light plant and tele phone system in that place. For 2.'! years he has been closely identified with the building up of the Territory of Alaska. At the primary eh etion in April Mr. Ilaz.eh’l was elected delegate to the licpul.licau national cum .ml ion which convened in Chicago in June. His two boys, Calvin ahd Craig are two of the most substantial citi zens in the territory. Both of them answered their country’s call during the late war. Mr. Huzelet is a man o£ high mental ability. He has the confi dence and respect of the people of Alaska regardless of party affilia tions. For many years Mr. Haze let has had a wide acquaintance with the leaders of both the Demo cratic and Republican parties throughout the nation. As the gov ernor of Alaska he would undoubted ly recommend many things to Wash ington all of which the heads pf the different departments would recog nize as being of merit and the result would be of great benefit to the territory. Mr. Hazelet is a clear, un biased thinker and his long resi dence in Alaska makes him thor oughly familiar with those things which we need the most. His home town has endorsed him for governor, the Republican clubs of Seward and Anchorage have endorsed him and it is safe to say that every broad minded man and woman in the ter ritory, regardless of party affilia tions i will endorse him whole-heart edly and sincerely for the office that means so much for the future of Alaska. We must have a real Alaskan of the calibre of Mr. Haze let as governor during the next, two years and during every year after. The future growth and pros perity of the territory demands this. THE DAY OF THANKS LOADED with all the goods the living cost allows, die home boards of the day of thanks will give full witness to the fact that the passing years do not permit to grow flaccid the long-established custom of the land Thanksgiving Day has yet full flavor of the day when first observed upon the bleak coast where the Pilgrim fathers closed their voyage adventurous. The turkey and the pumpkin pie. cranberries and accessories will all feature as in the days gone by. And amid the fumes so redolent of cheer and peace and the sweet concord of home, will seem to fashion forth the features dear of the ones who at that board in other years were grouped Memory that never lays aside attachments of the past will vivify the recollections of the ones whose passing meant contraction of the group, but cheer will be no less sincere because the pathos note is struck in token of mortality that time insures. From coast to coast, amid the mountains of the nearby range, amid the Rockies lifting nigh their peaks, where placid lie the meadows by the brook, and in the tropic Southlands and the coast that borders the Pacific, will be found the units of the nation's strength and grace, the circles of the home with sweet content as savor for the simple heartfelt feasts. In marty places strange and mid the scenes of desolation and of solitude the day and dinner will be given thought ■ Alaska some day will lie a state and when it is the people of the state will elect their own governor. Until Alaska does become a state it is the duty of every man and wo man in the territory to endorse a real man to fill the office of gov ernor. Dan Sutherland, the new Re publican delegate, can do much to make the endorsement of Mr. Haze let an assured thing. That he will do so we firmly believe. There is j no better man in the territory at the present time than Mr. Hazelet to fill this office. He is an Alaskan who has demonstrated his ability and proved his sincerity for more than twenty-two years. His record speaks for itself. He needs no ad vertising. He has been endorsed by the Republican clubs of three towns in Alaska and he will undoubtedly be i ndorsed bv every club in every town and by every thinking person who redly h.is the interests of .Mas ks at heart. Make il your duly to insist where the insisting will do the most good, 11 > 1 Mr. Hazelet re ceive the appointment of governor of of Alaska. He is the right man for the place. He would be elected by a large majority if the people of the territory had the say in electing him governor. But we have not and the only remaining thing for us to do is to insist and keep on insisting that Mr. Hazelet shall receive the ap pointment from Mr. Harding. We are going to boost for him whenever and wherever it is possible to do so. If there is anybody who can demon strate to us why we should not boost we will bo only too glad to listen to you, but we won't promise to be lieve any Jim told me that Ed told me that Harry told me tales about the Hon. George C. Hazelet.—Sew ard Gateway. At the speed attained by the French aviator, De Roumanet, of 192.4 miles an hour, a man might encircle the globe in five days. As an imagina tive writer Jules Verne was a piker. He thought he had exceeded human probability when he made Phineas Fogg do it in eighty days. In deciding on Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis for baseball dicta tor, the magnates may have recalled how he qualified as umpire in con nection with Standard Oil. Of course nobody expected cheaper turkeys this Thanksgiving, but a lot. of folks will be disappointed over not getting them. _____: THINGS WE THINK Things Others Think and What We Think of the Things Others Think, A stingy man is always generous to own weakness. A scandal-monger's wares are dis pensed without profits. Probably no baby in all the world ever wished to be kissed. Clothes don’t make the man, but sometimes they break him. It isn't so much what you do as | how you do it and where you do it. j • Prohibition at least has decreased the number of liars about fifty per cent. There is work and work. The hard er some tongues work the more dam age they do. — «-— "Temperament” used to be consul- j ered a sign of genius, but it's only a sign of ill-breeding. Tile free horse that you are rid ing so hard will never carry you across the tape of success. Men in the smoking compartment of a train tell more of their private affairs than women at a tea party. A good-looking girl doesn’t mind you saying she is intelligent, but you’d better never call her “intel lectual.” Who remembers when women’s skirts had about an inch of dust around the bottoms of them that they had swept up in walking? WJien the Carnegie hero merals are passed out next year, most of them should go to the small-salaried men who support large families. We are all demanding increased production. But we don't want an in creased production of lies, hate, malice, gossip, narrow-mindedness nor loafing. •—♦ — If a wife dresses up to the fashion the neighbors say mean things about how she keeps her husband’s nose to the grindstone. If she is not partic ular about her dress they feel sorry for the man who has to live with such a dowd.

NORTHERN DRUG 01 “THE DRUG ST ORE OF ALASKA" "SERVICE” is our motto. _ ENID BENNETT FILLS HOLIDAY PROGRAM EMPRESS THEATER "The Marriage King” featuring Enid Bennett in a strong melodrama, full of color, rapid action and tense situations, is the special feature on tonight's program. Anne Mortons (Enid Bennett) be lieved that her marriage ring held significance only within certain lim its. Her husband contended that it. was binding, no matter what he did. What’s your opinion? When the girl wife of a gambler and all-round crook revolts from be ing a tool in the hands of her ras cally husband, and in a struggle to escape accidentally shoots him; and when, believing him dead, she flees j to Hawaii and a new life of hap piness and love,—the beginning of a powerful story is laid, colorful and filled with action and suspense. Supporting Miss Bennett are Jack Holt as lleathe, a rich sugar planter, 1 and Robert McKim, a star “villain” of the movies, who portrays the ras-! cally husband. The action of the play is rapid and well sustained, and in the emotional parts Miss BenneH does some of the finest work of her screen career. “The Marriage Ring” is playing at the Empress tonight only.
