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

me that Harry told me tales about

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

He thought he had exceeded human
probability when he made Phineas
Fogg do it in eighty days.

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. Two
shows, at 7:30 and 9 p. m.

stigmatic lenses replaced. See Os
