Foreign Advertising Representative THE AMERICAN PRF.SS ASSOCIATION J SATURDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1920 SEEING BOTH WAYS Some of us are content to go through life noting the mistakes of others, blissfully indifferent to the fact that they see us as we see them. People think of us only as our own conduct and actions deserve. If we spend our time in petty and obnoxious criticisms of others, we must expect that they at least will be able to de tect the beam in'our own eyes. A few may be short sighted and unobserv ing, but the majority of the people are wise and quick to note the idio syncrasies of human nature. Why is it that some people are uni versally admired and respected through life, although they have their faults as do the rest of us? It is not because those faults are hidden from the world. Far from it. It is because such people have hearts endowed with more than the average of human compassion — hearts that prompt the mind to recognize the good qualities of others rather than to be continually seeking out the weaker points. It is because they see the better side of others that the world thinks so well of them. All people have their faults, but some, unfortunately, are only able to distinguish those which exist in the other fellow. VOICE OF THE ALASKA PRESS Give us a gold bonus, develop the pulp industry and devise means to perpetuate the salmon supply and then watch Alaska go some.—Juneau Empire. Considerable excitement and some sorrow were evidenced last night when Police Chief Canderlin raided a local resort and came out with three gallons of arden spirits. It was variously stated that the aforesaid spirits was REAL brandy worth $100 a gallon; and that it was “Marquette Rye,” a species of elixir which once was highly admired and appreciated here, but which has been no more for lo, these'rnany years. But experienced drink detectors sampled it (a classy privilege they have) and pronounced it just plain hootch.—Fairbanks News Miner. It must be said to the credit of Fourth division Democrats that they played the game squarely during the late campaign. Over in Anchorage the voters were baited with an open town for a week or more before elec tion. Nothing was barred—not even “mule,” and the impression was per mitted to go abroad that things would contiftwe that way if the Democrats won. But they didn’t. —• Nenana News. POLITICS WARMING UP Representative E. B. Collins, of Fairbanks, is a candidate for surveyor general and expects to receive the endorsement of his division. He is a staunch Republican, was speaker of the house for one term and would un doubtedly make a good territorial offi cial. Jack Tansey, committeeman from Seldovia, writes the Cordova Republi can Club that he heartily endorses the candidacy of George C. Hazelet for governor of Alaska, and in doing so has followed the example of practical ly every committeeman in the terri tory. The office of United States marshal has attractions far beyond that of gov ernor, if one may judge by the num ber of aspirants for the position now held by our friend, the "Jedge.” About a score of Fairbanks Republicans have signified their willingness to step into Marshal Erwin’s shoes but there appears to be only one applicant In the field for governor in the whole territory.—Nenana News. MANY PRIZES DONATED FOR MASQUE BALL The fire department committee has been very busy this week calling on all business houses, professional men and tradespeople, soliciting con tributions and prizes for the biggest social event of the year, namely the annual masquerade hall, New Year's Eve. Never before have like com mittees met with such liberal recep tions. Everybody, with but two ex ceptions, were pleased to help the city fire fighters along and show them that they were giving the boys both financial and moral support. So far there has been contributed $350 in cash and 2S beautiful and valua able prizes. Out of these prizes eleven are ladies prizes and ten gentlemen prizes. The other seven can go either way. A complete list of donations and pribes will be pub lished next week. It is very gratify ing to the department to know that they have such splendid support from their townspeople; and it shows that the townspeople have confidence in their fire department. i he numeration the lire boys re ceive from the city for attending fires, while very much appreciated, is hardly enough for even paying for the clothes that are ruined while on duty. It is now the desire of the boys to increase their relief fund to such an extent that it can afford some protection should any of them be injured. The fire department will thereby be a great credit to the city, and the members of the fire de partment will take more pride in the organization and interest in their work. RIFLE SHOof DRAWS MANY CONTESTANTS The general shooting average of the Cordova Rifle Club showed a de cided improvement at the fifth meet of the club last evening. More of the boys are getting down to busi ness and climbing over the 100 point mark. The sharpshooting squad from the Blum, O'Neill Co., headed by Harry O’Neill was out In force. Doc Council and Geo. Dooley dropped in to look things over and take a shot, and several new members joined. The club membership is growing so rapidly, that additional government rifles have been asked for. The scores made follow: Hubbert, 145; Beck, 138; Foyston, 128; Eisner, 123; H. I. O'Neill, 120; B. B. Lamprey, 111; Chet Mellison, 109; Means, 105; McCrea, 99; W. W. Council, 96; G. F.
