TO FILL NEED FOR THIRDJ*ARTY
(By United Sute* Cable)
NEW YORK, Wednesday, March
14. — Negotiations are under way
with the progressive republicans, pro
gressive democrats, prohibitionists,
socialists, anti representatives of
other parties “to meet with a commit
tee of progressives and plan for the
formation of a ‘league of liberals.* ”
This announcement was made yes
terday by Mathew Hale, acting chair
man of the progressive national com
mittee in issuing a call for the con- i
vention of enrolled members of that I
party in St. Louis, on April 12.
Hale asserted that the “radicalism” I
of the Progrissives of 1912 had now i
largely become the law of the land, i
The solid south, he said, would yield
only to a third party. He urged that
the progressives unite the liberal ele
ments in all parties into a “dominant <
power for good government.’

and state these men represent the
best spirit in America, and have put
a stop to Wilson’s unreasoning ambi
tion. The German newspapers also

— Writing to A. A. Seldon of this city
concerning the statement by David
Star Jordon in a speech at Portland
that “Roosevelt though only in terms
of war/* T. R. said:
“He is merely lying about me. I
don’t mind his doing that. What I
mind is his ceaseless efforts to de
bauch the country.”
NKW YO R K.—(Special.)—They ’re
talking German today over the well
worn table in Fraunces tavern, where
George Washington was wont to eat
in the days of the Revolution.
A German host presides over the
historic landmark; German waiters
hustle in and out with German dishes.
Rut otherwise the old tavern down
by the Battery is pretty much as it
was in the days when Washington and
his staff dined there, and when old
Landlord “Black Sam” Fraunces’
daughter'saved the “Fateher of His
Country’” from an assassins’ plot.
It was here in this tavern, now
more than -00 years old, that Wash
ington delivered his farewell address
to his officers. Fraunces sold the
place in 1785, and became Washing

AT TOKOTNA IS
OUT FOR ROADS
Writes Strong Letter in
Support of District
in support of the petition for
schools, communication and roads for
the Tokotna and Ophir districts,
which was published in the Gateway
of yesterday, the following letter has
been reecived from U. S. Commission
er W. F. Gredn, M. D., and D. D. S.,
for Mt. McKinley precinct, who re
sides at Tokotna.
•‘The Kuskokwim, Mt. McKinley,
lnnoko, lditarod, and the Ruby Re
cording precincts have united in our
efforts to get some recognition from
the proper departments in the way of
increased mail service and in suitable
and appropriate road build* ng for
which the government has never
spent one-cent or turned a shoveful of
“We need a road from the head of
navigation here on the Kuskokvrim
river to the Innoko and the points
made in the petition along these lines
are all valid and the plain truth. W'e
need connection with Anchorage,
Seward and the railroad by a wagon
road that is navigable for horses and
men in the summer time so we can
get in touch with the coast and the
states without going away up north
; to Nome.
“Wre have a large copper ledge on
the west fork of the Nixen fork of
the Tokotna river. We have Tung
sten also. We have the richest placer
i ground on Candle creek per square
foot of bed rock that has ever been
uncovered in Alaska—bar none. We
have large deposits of coal on the Big
river which you will not find on the
maps. One vein shows up for over 20
feet in thickness. But with all this
and more too we are fenced off by
lack,of transportation and communi
cation. These we must have and pro
pose to have them.
“All of which (and more if you
wish it) is respectfully submitted for
your consideration and help with the
1 powers that be. Yours truly,
”W. F. GREEN.”

USED SPUDS FOR
paper reporter using a basket as a
purse and potatoes as money had lit
tle difficulty recently in getting about
and making purchases. The potatoes
were from Idaho and valued at retail
at 3 Vi cents each.
The cashier of a moving picture
show' accepted three of them for a
ticket. A street care conductor de
clined them as fare, but the conversa
tion attracted the attention of a pas
senger, who offered to buy the svhole
supply at the rate of two for a nickel.
A taxicab chauffeur accepted six for
a ride of two blocks. “If the company
won't accept them I'll pay the fare
and take them home myself," he ex- j
plained. At a 5 and 10-cent store the
reporter bought two “diamonds" and
a picture frame with his tubers.
